Road to Recovery and Life in Utah Valley

I feel like the worst blogger in the world! I have been out living my life and having all these sweet experiences and I have failed at informing you folks of them! I am truly sorry I have been holding out on you! So to make up for lost time I will provide you with not only hilarious stories but pictures to go along with it! I know, I know, that's so nice of me! But please save the praise for the end!

So in September of 2012 I moved up to Orem UT! I had planned on moving up here long before I broke my back! I was not about to let the fact that I compressed a vertebrae keep me from moving up here to change my scenery up a bit! A bit, is a huge understatement! The whole bubble that people talk about does exist! Not to hate on my own religion I was just not raised to be the type of person who would seriously strive to live in this bubble! All that aside I can honestly say that I LOVE living up here! I have meet some seriously amazing people and have been having a blast ever since I moved up here!
 Oh yeah that's right! Meet Gloriana too!! What can I say I am kind of a big deal up here hahaha!!
 My girl Alyssa!! Meet her at the R. Lob! Seriously have some of the coolest co workers ever!! She is such a blast! Super fun, super funny! Always have a good time with this chica!!
 What? No big deal just meet this guy from Love and Theft!! Good concert!! Amazing day!!!
My FIRST major hike since my compressed vertebrae! Super proud of myself! Quads hurt for days! Random day of finding gems in the city of Ogden with this dime piece Lenzie and her bro!
 Miss Tawny Dee!! She's on her mission now in New York!! Beyond happy for her! Miss her like a fat kid misses twinkies!! One of my greatest life long best friends! She's amazing, period.
 hahahaha don't ask! Halloween is all I am going to give you for this picture!! Such a fun night!!!
 This babe right here is my "adopted" niece! As in her mom is my best friend and she lives up here! I play with her all the time! And words cannot express my love for this little human being! Love my little Dezy girl!! Even though she's a momma's girl through and through!!!
 I can't even put into words how amazing this girl is!! Natasha Sunshine seriously is the funnest most amazing friend ever!! ALWAYS happy, always positive, always smiling! LOVE HER TO DEATH!!
 SNOW!!!!! What can I say... I hate it! I am warm blooded!! It could die! I could go my whole life without seeing this disgusting white stuff ever again!! Take me to Hawaii... California!! PLEASE!
 THIS GUY.. Chaco!! Aka Chase Comrie... aka Chyla Nichols "fiancĂ©" love 3rd wheeling with them!
 Can't ever say anything bad about T.Quist! That man has been an amazing friend for years and has helped me so many times that I will forever be in his debt! Plus he's a blast to hang out with!!
 Lindsey Tuaileva!! Super nice and friendly!! Beyond a great person love her and her family!
 Chyla Nichols is seriously one my new best friends love her to pieces and her soon to be Fiance!!


FINALLY saw the Temple Square Christmas lights!! So beautiful! I got up to SLC temple a lot! Something about this beautiful Castle of God sitting in the middle of this chaotic city is peaceful!

Since I have been up here I have slowly started working out more! I have to be honest with you folks, it hasn't been easy and it's hard!! It's hard to build back up the muscles I had worked so hard for before I broke my back then lost completely while recovering in that fantastic brace! I can sort of slow run/jog! I have done up to 2 miles on the treadmill! I have started to do some strengthening work outs as well! My list consists of: lunges, squats, planks, crunches, wall sits, and this thing I call knee high planks! It's where you are in a plank position but you bring your knees to your chest as you twist from side to side from each leg!! REALLY works out your core and serratus side muscles! Anywho it's been doing wonders! But my back still hurts occasionally! My new found assistant in helping me drop the extra pounds I gained after getting out of my brace but not being able to work out! It is this thing called skinny wraps!!! BUT before you harp on them let me be the first to tell you, I was EXTREMELY skeptical of it! I was all "seriously, you can't wrap your stomach and just magically get skinny" OH NO!!! YOU CAN!!! I had results from the first wrap! I have done 6 wraps total and I am down 3 sizes! My stomach is flatter, and toner! I'll post a link for you to check out in case you may be interested!!  http://myitworks.com/

Other than that I have been working like a mad woman at the R. Lob! Making the green to get a new car! YES... A NEW CAR!! I am looking at the Chevy Equinox! Small SUV that I can have for awhile hopefully until I have 1 kid or so! But yeah super stoked about this new big girl decision in my life!! Dating is so-so! That has weird stories in and of itself that I will blog about some other time hahaha yeah right! My blogging repetitiveness  is not that great! But I am single, no potentials, no guys that could develop into something great! Don't be expecting any wedding announcements from me yet, or anytime soon! Not that I don't want to get married yet, I'd love to, it's just I haven't found anyone worthwhile yet! Maybe it's just me.... who knows!! Happy Valentines day to everyone! Love you all to the moon and back! Thanks for all your prayers and well wishes, I am doing great:)
