I have to say that I am grateful for my family this week. No matter how hard I think I have it sometimes, I know that I have been born to the greatest family. I could not ask for a better support system. I am so grateful for how close I am with every single one of my siblings in differen't ways. Mom and Dad, man I love you! Thanks for always putting up with know since I was the last to leave the Daw nest. :) Garrett, he is my hero. I have always looked up to my big brother. He and I shared things together that nobody has ever shared with me in my life, and I hope he knows that I am forever grateful. Amanda, she is my comfort. I know I could call on her in the middle of the night and she would be there for me. She was always my security blanket. I miss you so much, and I am so grateful you are my big sister. Allison, she is always the one that makes me feel good about myself. Whenever I am having a rough day, Allison and her husband Cameron are always there for advice. I know Allison loves me unconditionally and there is not a better sister in the world. Thank you for supporting me all these years and coming to all my classes, it means the world. Amelia...well this sister is special to me. We always fought like cats and dogs but we were inseperable growing up. I think we slept in the same room until I was a jr or sr in highschool. Amelia and I went through the most with eachother, and I think she knows me better then I know myself. We could never live with eachother but we are always there for each other and she can always make me laugh! I love you Mills. I love my family. All my nieces and nephews too. Here are some pics!

Ok so I feel like my skin is jacked up! I have been getting hormonal acne on the bottom half of my face for quite some time and I am FED UP! I have tried EVERYTHING! Dr. Murad products seemed to help the most. I eat really well, and I drink tons of water so I really have no idea where this is all coming from. Well probably stress! But..I am seriously at the end of my rope and I need advice. Does anyone else suffer from this skin problem, and have some advice or suggestions for me on how to clear it up? I had the best acne free skin all growing up, I seriously feel like I have been going through puberty! I am not 12! Ok I am done with my rant..but if anyone has suggestions, I would love to know..because I will try anything!

What I loved about this week.......

I loved this week because........

I love that I can get in my car and be within 15 minutes of the most beautiful place on earth. Alta Ski Resort. I had the best time skiing alone and enjoying my own company. There is nothing like it!
Walking through the Draper Temple. I felt very close to the spirit and I cannot wait until I can get married in that temple.
Having lunch with my two dear friends Andrea and Heidi.
Having 60 plus people in my Fusion class on Sunday.
I made the best Lemon Rosemary Garlic Chicken and I was very proud of myself.
I did well with my new job responsibilities this week at Life Time Fitness.
I learned alot about myself and gained more confidence in myself.
I had Red Mango twice and it is my favorie treat of all time!
I helped my sister Allison figure out some frustrations at the gym, and helped direct her on the right path.
I helped clients realize their goals are closer then they think and they are capable of reaching every single one of them.
I laughed quite a bit at funny people...especially Heidi Ormsby.
I have an amazing cousin, and her name is Janessa. She brightened my week.
I realized I had a friend in myself, when I felt very alone at times.
I was humbled and realized life is amazing...even when you think you have it bad..somebody always has it worse. I thank the Lord for showing me that this week.
A phone call from my Dad just to let me know that he loves me, what a great Dad I have..I am so blessed.
I loved that the SUN came out this week, and gave me a glimpse that spring is just around the corner.
Discovering that oatmeal, almonds, and organic fruit melody is the best breakfast combination.
I felt grateful for people that pay compliments. You made my day,because I was having a rough day. Compliments go a long way. Thank you!
A sushi lunch with my friend Kaycee
A Dance Jam session with my friend Debbie, even though I look like a robot or Skreech from Saved by the Bell when I dance. It still feels good to relax and let go.
Having the oppertunity to change lives every single day.
Watching my favorite show Biggest Loser. Go TARA!
Laying in bed and looking out the window at snow falling, it was so peaceful. Being still and quiet even for a moment, means everything to me.
American Idol is just a great show and I liked it this week.
Getting worked in a training session by another personal trainer other then myself for once. HA!
Gaining realization that miracles really do happen.
Chicken bowl and sweet potato fries from Rumbi Grill
Monday night at LTF
I realized this week I don't give up. I need to keep the faith and I will continue to keep the faith. It is my life and I am lucky to be alive and fully engaged in my daily happenings. I can do whatever I want, and I can be whoever I want, as long as I do my best every day. I will do my best every day. I will live up to my integrities, and I will keep the faith. I am UNSTOPPABLE!
