Showing posts from July, 2009


My job is really frustrating sometimes. I really love what I do, but sometimes it's just hard telling people the same things over and over again! There's so many myths about weight loss, and I have to try to dispell(?) all of them!

And I know I say this all the time, but the main one is with women and lifting heavy. So many women have told me that someone told them in the past not to lift heavy, not to lift more than 5 lbs, or to only train with high reps, or something to that extent. That is totally false! And these people probably have no IDEA what they are talking about who have told them that.

It is so ingrained(sp?) in women because the myth that women will get bulky from weight lifting has been around for soooo long. And even after I tell them that it is a MYTH, they are still afraid of lifting heavy. Even when I say, 'look at me-I lift heavy and I'm not big!' It's just annoying.

Women are so concerned with pounds and inches instead of just losing …

Home Sweet Home

Just got back from NY yesterday. Now it's back to the same old thing again! I always get a little depressed when we come home from a trip. :(

But we had a great time in New York with Matt's family. His brother's wedding was beautiful! The weather was a little chilly, though. Didn't feel like summer! But now we're back in the Kentucky humidity again, so I'm sure I'll be missing that cool weather pretty soon!
So today I guess I'll unpack everything....I love to pack, but unpacking is really not fun. Then maybe lay out and clean the house!
Here are some pics of us from the trip:

4th of July

So this year for the 4th of July, we went down to the waterfront for the concert and fireworks they have every year. Mindy(my sister) and her boyfriend Matt went with us, and it was pretty fun! The weather was perfect-in the high 70s/low 80s. That's crazy for July here! It's been like that for the past week! I loooove it.

One more week until we leave for New York! I'm excited to be getting away from Kentucky, but I sure do wish they had a beach there! This is the first time I've been to NY in the summer in about 5 years-We usually go around Christmas time and it's FREEZING, of course. So hopefully it won't be too cold this time! We're going to Darien Lake Theme Park-I haven't been to a theme park in a while, so I'm excited! I love riding rides! And then just lounging in his parent's pool, if the weather permits! Then I'm going to be in my brother in law's wedding--I hate weddings, but hopefully it'll be fun!

Here's some pics from t…
