Day 7

What is your happiest memory?

  • When I started becoming close to my youngest brother, spending time with him, teaching him things, watching him grow up and realizing now how it played a huge impact on his life — he and I are always so close and I love him to death. He is 10 years old now and I just hope he always remember the times we had together.

  • My mom always being a great cook, she always cooked us a full course meal. We loved her cooking & still do
  • My younger brother and I staying up extremely late playing video games together

  • Going to the park for hours
  • Sledding during the winter
  • playing kickball with my childhood friend and younger brother each summer
  • Dancing in front of the TV in the living room to Backstreet Boys, Usher, NSYNC, etc it was how I learned how to dance — self taught
  • Walking to school with my younger brother – he always walked super slow, it made me pissed off most mornings, lol 
I had some good childhood memories, more than what is listed but to keep things short. I was very smart when it came to school, so I won tons of academic awards & athletic awards sometimes too. Not everyday was a good day, but the good times were great times.

No Slack on the Holiday

Just because it is St. Patrick’s Day doesn’t mean I slack off.. well maybe I slacked a little bit but not only did I make it to the gym, I had my mom and youngest brother attend with me! Yay! 😀 

 

My workout was shorter, because I was at the gym for a hour and half unlike my normal 2-4 hour sessions because I didn’t want to hold my family hostage in the name of gains today ❤
