Met a REALLY CUTE guy on the beach today!!!

My 4 year old took this picture...sorry no make up.

Time to work out like a GIRL!  No excuses baby.

The pier way, way, way off in the distance is my walking goal, then back again.

Part of my journey was by the sea and part on the boulevard.  I saw interesting people and things along the way:

...definitely under the category of interesting people.  Isn't people watching fun!


Anyone wondering about the cute guy?  Well, let me tell you, he was as sweet as he could be and charming too!  He approached me on the beach on my return from the pier, wearing a red & black rock-n-roll bathing suit, carrying a surf board.  OMG!!! I just LOVE a rock star!  He was excited about swimming and getting wet in the ocean.  Asked me if I wanted to come too.  I declined, saying "I hope he had fun, but I must be on my way."  He watched me walk away....     Did I mention he was 3?

Accidentally had the camera set on vivid, but you get the idea.  Time my family saw me they started freaking out saying, "YOU ARE SO RED!  ARE YOU O.K.?  I felt hot, but awesome & empowered.  Then I rounded off my workout with push ups, lunges, squats, ab work, and stretching.  A certain 4 year old followed my every move!
What a great workout and sight seeing adventure!  I won't forget the friends I met along the way. 

I heard this song on the beach today and haven't been able to get it off my mind, lyrics or music. 

"I knew I wouldn't forget you, and so I went and let you blow my mind.

Hey soul sister, I don't wanna miss a single thing you do tonight.
You give my life direction, a game show love connection we can't deny -i-i-i.

I'm always gonna wanna blow your mind.

Your so gangsta, I'm so thug, you're the only one I'm dreaming of.  You see, I can be myself now finally, in fact there's nothing I can't be.  I want the world to see you be with me."

One particular verse really spoke to me today: 
"You see, I can be myself now finally, in fact there's nothing I can't be."

What an amazing thought!  THERE'S NOTHING I CAN'T BE!  I really believe to be successful at this weight loss thing, I HAVE to BELIEVE with all of my heart there's nothing I can't be!  If I want to be a size 4/6, I can be a size 4/6.  I just have to believe it and follow through with my plans to get there, no matter how long it takes.  I was a size 2 in college, so I know a 4/6 is attainable.

We can all do this together.  Let's support each other along the way & we'll get there.  If anyone needs help with anything or just wants to chat privately please feel free to email at or facebook message me anytime.  I would love to help.

I hope everyone has a fabulous (rock star ;) weekend.

Take care.

  2. YOU are the Rock star sister!

  3. I love all your pictures and the cute guy. LOL
    yes we can do this together. Have a great weekend. :-)

  4. I do believe that if WE would get out of our won way, & start believing that anything that the mind believes it can achieve, we probably wouldnt struggle with our weight as much. I finally believe that I am going to do it this time and I can hear it in your posts that you believe it too, so theres truly no stopping us now!!!
    Have a great day & rest of teh weekend!

  5. You are so right!!! Keep it up, sister!!

  7. Hey soul that Train song. Love your blog post today too. I can hear the joy in your writing. Keep up the happy thoughts. You rock!

  8. My face used to turn red like that too! My friend asked if I was using tanning beds and told me to cut back! Good for you! Great blog! Great pictures! If I didn't wear makeup, you wouldn't be able to tell that I had eyes:)
    You can and you will be successful!!!

  9. Haha - love your 3 year old rock star. :) When I take Carter to the pool, the kids flock to me and it's always the boys. Usually 7 and under. My friend and I were always in awe this summer - then we finally realized it was because we're cougars. ;) Haha. Okay - not really, but it made us laugh all summer. :)
