Dear Readers,

I can't believe how quickly this year is flying by. Only 17 more school days until junior year is over! And I'm so happy to be starting this summer off so much more confident in myself than ever before. I've already realized I have to get all new shorts because my old ones are way too big and for the first time EVER I'm not totally dreading swim suit shopping. I'm really glad that I'm building healthy habits now, ones I'll keep until I graduate high school and continue as a ...

Dear Readers,

So Prom was this weekend. And it was absolutely amazing. I felt like Cinderella all over again. My date was a perfect gentleman like always and he and my friends all looked wonderful. I'm sad that it's over, but it was a truly unforgettable night and I was so proud of how I looked in this year's dress.

I put a picture from last year's prom next to one from this year and 20lbs makes a big difference! I'm not done yet, but I'm on my way there and over halfway to ...

April 29, 2014 10:32 a.m.

Dear Readers,

Well, I'm back from Spring Break and it's Prom week! To fill you in on the last few days of break, I saw Wicked under some incredible circumstances, spent more time with my awesome family, & helped put on a great Easter production at church! All in all, break was fantastic.

And like I mentioned before, it's Prom week! Which isn't quite as full of fun as Homecoming week (in this case it's full of ACT and other testing for juniors) but Prom prep began today! I went to get a mani- pedi & I ...

April 17, 2014 2:40 p.m.

Dear Readers,

It's Spring Break! And I'm having a fantastic time visiting my family in Kentucky. I've spent time with my best friend, my cousins, grandparents, and today will be the highlight of my break. I'm going to see Wicked in Nashville with my aunt and grandma! It's going to be totally spectacular!

It hasn't been easy to make healthy choices while on vacation, but I think I'm doing a pretty good job! Yesterday I had lunch at Chick-Fil-a and I ordered a fruit cup (their fruit cups are THE BEST by the ...

April 15, 2014 12:58 p.m.

Dear Readers,

Well, the musical officially ended this weekend and life is back to normal. The show was awesome and I had such a totally amazing time! I was exhausted afterward, but my family all came to support me and see the show so I was having too much fun to be really tired. I also received one of the best surprises ever during Friday’s performance. As I was singing “In My Own Little Corner”, I looked into the audience and saw my cousin Melissa sitting on the front row. She drove eight hours to surprise me and as ...

Week 30

April 03, 2014 9:59 a.m.

Dear Readers,

I just got home from my final dress rehearsal before opening night tomorrow! This week has been exhausting, but I can’t wait for tomorrow. So much of my family will be in town that they might fill up the gym by themselves! (Not really, but still!) And my wonderful best friend Callie will be coming to see me and staying for the weekend. I am so so so excited. This show has been really stressful at times, but I’ve made a lot of new friends and I love playing Cinderella with my totally awesome Prince Charming ...

Week 29

March 28, 2014 10:56 a.m.

Dear Readers,

So, it’s the beginning of tech week. And that means next week is dress rehearsal week. And that means opening night is a week from tomorrow! I’m excited and nervous and anxious and happy and sad all at the same time. This week has been a little crazy, but nothing compared to what next week will be like. I’ll be practically living at the school until the show is over, and that means it’s going to be really hard to go to the Y. Weeks like this are when I’ll have to be ...

Week 28

March 21, 2014 1:55 p.m.

Dear Readers,

I just got home from a Zumba class at the Y with Gracie and it was awesome! I had forgotten how much fun Zumba is, and we were laughing enough to give our abs a double workout. If you’ve never taken it before, I would definitely recommend it. Even if you’re not the world’s greatest dancer, the class is just fast-paced enough that you get a good workout, but not so fast-paced that you can’t keep up. Finding new ways to workout makes getting active so much easier!

In other news, (extremely exciting news ...

Week 27

March 17, 2014 2:45 p.m.

Dear Readers,

This week has been really great so far: minimal stress, rehearsals are going well, and not too much homework. All in all a bit relaxed. The most exciting thing I’ve done is attend a cardio kickboxing class with my friend Gracie. And let me tell you- that was crazy. I was sore for days and the school secretary was there and totally showing us up. So, rather than delve into my embarrassing lack of kickboxing skill, I’ve decided to give you a “tour” of my lunchbox. I figured that suggesting you eat healthy can only get ...

March 06, 2014 9:49 a.m.

Dear Readers,

So I’ve learned some interesting things this week, and I’m going to share them with you. I’ve learned some things about myself, my friends, and general healthy living. Ready?

First, this week I tried getting up early to go to the Y before school. I assumed I would totally hate myself in the morning, but I was so wrong. I’m not exactly a morning person, and meeting my friend at 5:30 sounded like a fate worse than death. However, once I got there, I loved the feeling of accomplishment I had for the ...
