Tire mind blow

So we blew a tire on 5/24, and the only super scary part was the fact that David and I's 2 month old niece was in the car. Yes I did read for all of us but having a newborn baby in the car. I am very blessed in so many ways. Things could have been so much worse that day. And I was glad my doughnut was able to get us to safety granted it took an extra 2 hours to get rachel and the baby home but we were able to enjoy a little of spokane but our stresses did not end there we needed to find a way to buy tires when it was a holiday weekend and I had work the next night. Like I said I am blessed, I have an amazing support group out here in Seattle and amazing people who are still kind. Thank you everyone.

Summer 2014

Well the warm weather is here! So happy it may be hot but at least it is not wet. In a way I miss summers back home but for the most part it is nice not to sweat right when I walk out the door. Bummer part to it all is that when my days of come around its really shitty outside, but on the plus I do get out when David is off so that is much better. As long as we can enjoy the sun togther.

Getting in the gym

So it has now been almost a week without my gym! It is still something to adjust too. I miss seeing all the trainers who ask me how I am doing and bringing in bagels just to brighten there days.
I know I will always have the friendships I have made there and the results as long as I keep up with my weekly routines. I am also working with David once a week to get him active and on his way to a much healthier lifestyle. I want him to be around for our future children and be able to run and play with them. David told me when he was younger that he would not live past 30. It broke my heart to know that he did not believe that he would live to be 31 when he was just going to be 27. But like me it will take baby steps and pushing yourself harder then you thought you could. I love him and want to grow very very old together.

My home may be gone and also some pounds but not my pride.

On April 30th,2014  my gym closed it's doors forever. I am still unsure about what my future holds going to L.A fitness.  I said good bye to some friends/family, but not forever just while things are figured out. Vision Quest was a home a place to be comfortable and myself where all my stress just went away.  We as a family created many memories in those walls. We hope that our family will stay strong as we make this new gym our home. It will never be the same and not everyone will know my name when I walk in the door. I do know one thing my family is behind me and will make sure I complete my goals. So here is to the future and what lies ahead and not behind.

2013 and Jodie 2.0 Back in action

Well a new year has begun and many things have changed. No Joshua in my life, he was crazy and saying that he would kill himself to be with me, he also said that he loved me when we had only known each other for a day.

On the plus side, I now have been at Panera Bread as a night baker for 4 months.

On Christmas I started dating David Jason Morrison, He is truly the man of my dreams, he misses me as much as I miss him and he has the same cheesy romantic sense as I do and I love it. Finally the man of my dreams right here all mine, I love him so much.

In December I got a roommate and we live in the apartment that Devin and I rented a year ago, Her name is Pamela Mccall, she is so far a great friend. I got her in the gym with me and she now has the same trainer as me Gareth Whiteley.

Speaking of training I had to stop paying because my rent is mostly where my checks go to and also my gas and a few other bills. So i have only been able to pay every other month and not every other week. I only get one training session a month with him that is free and that is not really helping me. So I finally paid for more and I will get six this month. I started bootcamp, and i try to go 2 days a week but sometimes I am in Burlington, but now I have to cancel that because I need to start saving money for a new apartment.  I no longer have a crush on Gareth, I just see him as a great friend/brother. I am going to be training with him again once a week and I am so excited.

I have a new friend name Liz and she is a great workout buddy, that is actually how we met. And now we meet at the gym everyday other then Thursdays when she has PT for the Marines. We do bootcamp and also so buddy training together when we can.

2012 end of my world

Well, it is now October, lots of things happening or have happened in the world of Jo-Jo. In June I started going back to the gym, in august Devin and I broke up, thats when my world started to crumble, he was my best friend i would have died for him.A week after that I got a Personal trainer and have been working with him two days a week. Then yesterday I lost my job. First time that i have ever been fired from a job, it sucked.

On the plus side to all this, joined a dating website a few weeks ago and have been on a few dates, went on the best first date ever on Friday, October 12th. He took me to Olive Garden, then dancing at the dance studio that he goes to. So much fun. Now today he took me to see Frankenweenie. Cute movie.

I am also down 16lbs since my first time at the gym, which puts me 4lbs for my graduation goal weight.
Now i just have to hope that I have lost some inches.

I am on the mad hunt to find a job so that I can keep my Personal trainer because I love working with him. He is a great trainer and an even better friend. Doesn't help that I have a crush on him, but I will not let that stop me from dating Joshua, sweetest man i have ever met. His parents have raised him right, I am just so afraid to tell him my past, but the past is the past and that should not matter. if he truly likes me that is then it really wont matter. He makes me so happy, but I don't want to rush this one and i just want to let whatever happens happen, but he is the guy I have been waiting for.

I hope that I find a job, so that I can save to get my own place and then we can hang out more at my place, I can make us dinner and we can watch romantic movies and just cuddle like i have always wanted too. He has some plans to surprise me on some dates, I have always wanted that. I get bored if I have to plan things, but he has some expensive things up his sleeves.
