Treadmill workout, best yogurt ever, music, and a new passion!

January is almost half way over, but I have to say this has been one of the best January’s we’ve had in a long time.  Our weather has been so nice!  My goals are in full swing.  January is one treat day a month.  I’ve wanted to drop 5 lbs. and tone up!!  What should you do?  CARDIO (:  I’m usually a weight lifting fanatic, but cardio burns the calories, especially HIIT cardio.  Tomorrow I think I’ll crank up the new treadmill and try this workout.  I tried half of it on Saturday at the gym and loved it.  Made the treadmill time fly!  I love sweating (:  I snapped this on my phone and I don’t know where I found it.  There’s a billion of them out there.  I think I’ll try 3 different ones this week!

Next, one of my favorite followers (: shared an amazing yogurt that she bought at Whole Foods.  I rarely eat yogurt because of all the extra stuff in them and the sugar.  This is an organic plain yogurt that she added berries too and she couldn’t say enough of how good it tasted and how it filled her up for hours.  I’m on this!!  Here’s a pic. I found on the internet!  I love walking though Whole Foods.  I wish we had one close to me!  P.S.  I almost forgot she adds a heaping spoonful of chocolate whey protein.  Now I want this yummy dessert!

My MUSIC today is a story about the BEST birthday present I’ve ever given.  This little gal of mine had a birthday last week!

Several weeks before Christmas an amazing thought came to my mind.  I should get concert tickets for Erika.  She has a birthday right after Christmas so I planned it to be a birthday gift.  She loves Taylor Swift and One Direction.  We’ve seen Taylor Swift twice and just recently she has fallen head over heels in love with One Direction.  I accidentally forgot to buy her their new CD for Christmas.  I got her a DVD however and as we watched it together she was screaming and crying about how much she’d love to see them in concert.  I had the hardest time hiding my secret (: Early in December I looked up the One D tour and sadly they weren’t coming to Salt Lake, HOWEVER, a close second was San Diego!  The wheels in my mind started turning!  My brother lives in San Diego.  I could get tickets for the two of us and we could drive or fly out there to see the concert!!  The July date was perfect and after a little persuasiveness with my husband, I bought the present!!  I put the tickets in the CD case and wrote a little note from Harry to her.  I loved it so much and she is soooooooooo excited!!!  Can’t wait!

Lastly, my new passion (like I need another one!) is skiing!  This year we got season passes to Snow Basin.  The kids love it and I love it!  I skied a little as a teen and I taught my 16 year old when he was 6.  I took many years off because my kids were small and it’s so much work.  It’s different now that the kids are older.  Once we get up to the mountain, it’s breathtaking and I love flying down the hill.  I’m taking lessons and both my instructors couldn’t believe I’d never had lessons and one of them asked what sport I played!  He said he could tell I was an athlete.  I love that compliment!  Here’s me and my little girl.  We had such a fun day together!
