The dreaded topic.

It's true. 
The topic we never want to talk about.
Weight & working out.
I hate this topic. 
Simply because I have never enjoyed working out. & I hate talking about it because of that.
People always say, when you want to make the change you will, but it has to be for you...
So how come I never wanted to.. ya know?
Well, I feel as though the change has come!! 
I figured out why I never enjoyed working out.. because I find it boring and repetitive. 
But then.. zumba came along :) and changed my life. it got me in the mood to start working out. 2 times a week was okay at first, but then i wanted more. So now I do a mix of.. zumba, stair stepper and Insanity!
It's been going great and I"m seeing great results. 
**I feel like i'm rambling**

One thing I keep wondering is.. why do we do some of the things that we do?
Such as:
-Why do we stay up late on Facebook when we know we have to be up at 6am for work or school?  Is Facebook that interesting? Is the conversation you're having that important?(sometimes it is... i understand) but why?!
-Today I didnt work until 2:00pm. Why didn't I work out before? Because... no reason. I just didn't . So I didn't get home until 9:30. I didn't want to work out.. I was "tired" but then i thought "no courtney!!!" because I know the minute I got in bed, I would grab my laptop and get online and be on for at least another hour or two. When I could be working out! No worries.. i worked out. for 30 minutes! good times. but seriously.. why do we have such lazy thoughts?
-Why do we think that cake and cookies and candies and such make us "feel better"? Really? they don't make me feel better, they taste good for the 30 seconds they're going from my mouth to my stomach.. but after that? yeah.. sickly tummy! Why do we do this to ourselves?!
I'm not saying no more candy, but when you're trying to lose weight... is that candy bar really going to help you? Or make your next work our suck?
** I still feel like i'm rambling**

Anyways, that's the gist of my thoughts. 
I'm liking where I see myself going.
I've really been trying to focus on myself lately. As in, taking care of myself and getting to where I need to be. And I feel it working. And it makes me happy :)

I love you all. 
I promise better posts (w/ pictures) when I get to school!

Peace & Blessings

Three. Weeks.

I seriously have no life!
I'm going slightly insane. 
I do the same thing every day. work.
Don't get me wrong... I absolutely love my job!
I love the people I work with & I love my kids.
But, it's very repetitive. 
Now, I know I can't be picky. 
& I know that when I get older and start my career, 
it will be the same thing every day.. but it's not working for me right now.
In 3 weeks I will be starting school,
living with friends,
surrounded by numerous amounts of activities
& socializing. 
I. Can't. Wait!
I'm very excited to start something new.

As for now, I will tough it out the next 3 weeks and continue to go to my new favorite thing....

I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this Zumba thing is. Such a great work out and it's super fun to go with friends :) I've been going with my friend Karly Leavitt! It's been so much fun! I will definitely be finding a class in Rexburg when I get there. It makes you feel so good about yourself. And there's so many different people there, tall & short, big & small, old & young, coordinated & not coordinated :) I love it. Everyone is so much fun! If you ever get the chance to go.. do it! 
Here's a link to some pictures that the post register took there one night!

I promise you that once i start school, I will DEFINITELY be blogging more. 
I love you all

Peace & Blessings

I Can't Be Mad At You.

"The Nicest Thing"
By Kate Nash
All I know is that you're so nice
You're the nicest thing I've seen
I wish that we could give it a go
See if we could be something

I wish I was your favourite girl
I wish you thought I was the reason you are in the world
I wish my smile was your favourite kind of smile
I wish the way that I dressed was your favourite kind of style

I wish you couldn't figure me out
But you always wanna know what I was about
I wish you'd hold my hand
When I was upset
I wish you'd never forget
The look on my face when we first met

I wish you had a favorite beauty spot
That you loved secretly
'Cause it was on a hidden bit
That nobody else could see
Basically, I wish that you loved me
I wish that you needed me
I wish that you knew when I said two sugars,
Actually I meant three

I wish that without me your heart would break
I wish that without me you'd be spending the rest of your nights awake
I wish that without me you couldn't eat
I wish I was the last thing on your mind before you went to sleep

Look, all I know is that you're the nicest thing I've ever seen
And I wish that we could see if we could be something
Yeah I wish that we could see if we could be something 

My feelings exactly.
PS. I hardly ever put stuff like this on my blog, so enjoy it :)

Responsibility is something we all must learn.
I just hope that all of you would learn it by the time you're... let's say 29-ish :)
That's my vent for the day.
Be responsible! 

Love you all.
Peace & Blessings

So, sometimes in life. 
We come upon these mountain.. or hills.
That we must overcome.
We must be strong and learn to conquer them! 
Well I have a new Mountain in my life.
It's huge... seriously.
One of the biggest ones i've had in a while...
I have a feeling it wont be going away overnight..

I have a big zit that I named George.

Yes... I do have splotches on my face.. trying to get rid of the nasty-ness :) 
ps. I cut 2 1/2 inches off of my hair.. eek!

Love you all.
Peace & Blessings
