Challenge: Day 1

Day 1: Recent picture of you (see below, I am the one on the right, in case you didn't know) and 15 interesting facts about yourself.

1. I have recently found a new hobby, crocheting. It's something I can actual hyperfocus on and I love finding new patterns I can teach myself to make.
2. I love motorsports, one of the biggest rushes in life was sitting in a bomber (type of class) during a race once.
3. I know how to operate some heavy machinery. In Kindergarten or First grade, I competed in a "backhoe derby" and took third place. I spent many summer days sitting next to my daddy on a Cat.
4. I love horseback riding, but I haven't ridden since I was 13.
5. I love guns and hunting, or really anything outdoors. One of my favorite things to do is trap/skeet shooting.
6. For the last 4 years, I have wasted many hours playing World of Warcraft, I am officially a geek.
7. I love Action movies. Comedic actions especially. I do appreciate a good Western once in a while, since I was mostly raised on those and sports while at my dad's house.
8. I served 2 years, well just under, in the U.S. Air Force. I still kind of miss it everyday =o/
9. I was married at 18 and had my oldest when I was 19, second at 22. In 2005, I met my husband while we were in Technical School in Monterey, CA.
10. Every year my mom, grandma, and I used to go to the Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon. I fell in love with Oregon at a very young age.
11. When I was 12, mom, grandma, and I spent 3 weeks touring southern France. It was definitely an experience I'll never forget.
12. I have played SO many sports. Softball was the sport I played the longest. I have played soccer, basketball, volleyball, track, cheerleading (for a month), and even wrestling.
13. My mom is my best friend. I tell her everything. Probably even some things I shouldn't, but she does the same to me as well.
14. Growing up, I couldn't wait to once leave Shasta County and move away somewhere totally awesome (part of the reason I joined the military). Now I find myself constantly thinking about how great it would be to move back..
15. I am me. I am awesome, I know this. I am unique, and I don't think anyone could ever change my opinion about myself..

It's finally March!

Today is my rest day, Turbofire day 2 was yesterday and I would like to think it was easier than the first. My legs are killing me and my back is quite tense. A massage SO would not hurt right now.
Well, I received a call last night at like 9:30.. I didn't recognize the number, but I answered it anyway, and I'm glad I answered it instead of getting a voicemail. It looks like I will be the assistant coach for Shannon's little league team this year! I'm totally stoked! I felt like a complete goof on the phone since I was like a giddy little kid, oh well lol.
Have I said how excited I am since it's finally March?! So much is going on this month! Anyway, gotta run, can't sit still any longer...

Dear Turbofire...

I'm sorry I didn't take you seriously at first. I probably cannot live without you. When we were finished yesterday, after I turned you off and put you away, the chunks started to rise. I remained in the fetal position on the couch for the next hour, positive I was going to throw up. My knees scream if they go any higher than my hips, my arms feel like they will fall off if they go above my shoulders. I know you abuse me and love me at the same time, so I must continue this new relationship. When I think of you, the John Mellencamp song "Hurt So Good" comes to mind.
Love always, Me.

Yes, I did Turbofire yesterday and didn't go over my calorie limit, hooray. I felt like I was coming down with a cold yesterday, today I feel much better, so I will more than likely workout for day #2. Tomorrow's a rest day according to the schedule. The pain/burn is so going to be worth it. I have a vacation in 24 days and a wedding to attend by the end of May. I'd LOVE to be in a size 5/6 dress, but I refuse to shop until it's April and I'm a size 8.
Thanks to the pill (was on a low-dosage something, but went on regular ortho-tricyclen in December) and not so healthy habits, I've gone from low 140s to mid 150s. So, I've got my work cut out for me!
Also, on a sappy "awww" note, we were getting ready for bed and as he gave me a kiss goodnight the hubster said something he's never said to me before. He told me I was beautiful and that he couldn't function without me. Talk about permasmile! I've been in a great mood ever since! I'm so happy with where we are at the moment and how happy he is with his recent decisions. Anyway, just had to share, I don't like to be the type of woman to trash talk their husband in a blog, point out his negative qualities, or anything like that. It's taken a while, but I've found it best to just go straight to him if I have any issues with him. So, with that being said, ending this post with - I love my husband. =o)
