Well now to what this post is really about. I've always struggled with my weight. I've never had a problem with obesity or being extremely overweight, but exercise and healthy eating just don't really get along well with me AT ALL! I know that I am not "fat" as some people say, but I also know that my body is a temple of the Holy Ghost and that I could be a lot better. So, if you hear me talking about losing weight or exercising, it is not because I feel overweight. It's because I know I could be so much better, and it's laziness that is keeping me from achieving my goals.
As of late there are a couple of things that have inspired me to lose weight. So I finally decided that this summer is going to be the summer I do it. I'm going to stop making excuses, get out in the great weather and work towards a better body. Pinterest (Lord we thank you for the inventors!!!) has been a source of great inspiration. Little says and quick workouts that burn a lot of calories have caught my attention. So I decided that I would use Pinterest as my motivation and make myself a 21 day "calendar" of sorts to use to exercise. I've seen that it takes 21 days to form a habit, so I did this little system for that many days. I'm going to post pictures to help as a "walk through."

*Gag* I ate Gator tail!!!! It actually tasted pretty good, but the batter they fried it in was really salty, almost as salt as the ocean, but it made me nauseous thinking about what I was actually eating.
They're gonna just love me for this pic, but my family at Busch Gardens.
This might possibly be the cutest thing I've ever seen!! A baby cheetah was out playing with it's doggie friend, and it was sooooo cute!!! Believe or not, that cheetah was as big, or bigger, than a full grown lab or retriever/hound mix, and the cheetah is 6 months! omw! So cute!!!!
Really cool wall somewhere in one of the Virginias
*Ugh* Dinner from the night before.
Riding down the big hill on the Log Flume. We. Got. DRENCHED!! I was NOT Happy!!!!! lol My hair looked like I stuck my finger in a light socket for the rest of the day. Ugh!=/
He looks so cute and innocent when he's sleeping. Aww!! :-)
The one sleeping looks cute--the one standing by me, however, is VICIOUS looking! They're just UGLY and mean! That one was stalking back and forth just itching to get out and eat the little children that were walking back and forth in front of him.
Bad pic of me, BEAUTIFUL pic of my cousin, Melissa:-) She's 8 months pregnant and absolutely adorable, and so sweet!!! :-) Her and her husband gave us a wonderful breakfast!
Ya'll have no clue how hard it was to get the pic. First we had to get the lighting right, then we had to get the poses right, then we had to get the aim right....oh my! It was a hassle! Did I mention that I had to jump up and push the button, then run back to the couch and act like I'd been sitting there?
Melissa, Jason, and Lucy, and Baby Baldwin :-)
The lighting in this picture is kind of off, but I LOVE it!! These girls are just wonderful! It's Rebecca (the Hispanic who kissed me;]), Jamie Johns, me (duh!) Lucia, and Stephanie Johns, the Johns' daughter-in-law.
Jonathan, Tommy, and Joshua.
Tommy. The guy that's like the gentle giant. That guy is SOOO tall!! Se where my shoulder is?? I had on FOUR INCH HEELS!!! And then the hair is like another 4-5 inches and I'm still shorter!!! lol The average sized guy looks like a midget when I'm in high heels with tall hair;-)
Tommy and Elder Bro. Johns, the "grandpa" of the church. Such a SWEET elder!!! :-)
Stephanie and me---I love her!!!!!
Stephanie and her husband, Bro. Jesse Johns.
Bro. Johns and Daddy after some good food and fellowship!
My mom and Sis. Johns. We learned something neat when we were in Miami. Sis. Johns' sister, Becky, is the one who witnessed to my mom, helped her pray through to the Holy Ghost, and gave her her first Bible study!
Sis. Johns and me! She is easily one of the sweetest people I've ever met! I fell in love with her very quickly. She is a true lady :)
Daddy in Bro. Archer's church. He preached a GREAT message!!!!
Dakota and his new-found friend, Jonathan. I'm glad he had fun!
