Well here we are 2011. How the heck did this happen? Where did the last year go? Where did the last 3 years go for that matter. WOW.  Time is flying but I am very excited about 2011. I feel that each of the past few years has had a theme and I have an overwhelming feeling that this year is going to be wonderful.  The last few years have been far from easy. I would call them more of “growing” years. Here are a few quick points of what has gone down in the last 3 years.

-sold my home, business and moved into an apartment with my husband and 3 other people. (why did I do this? I will get back to this later)

-moved across the country away from all my friends and family

-moved into the perfect spot on the water on Vancouver Island

-for the first time in my adult life I worked for someone else

-Became a Holistic Nutritionist and Personal Trainer

-drove all the way across the country

-became a Mom of 2 puppies

-Started an online business (DAMY)

-got engaged

-lost my Father

-My Husband left the Military and I became the “supporter” in more ways then one

-lost 30 pounds of fat and got in the best shape of my life

-David (hubby) started his journey of becoming a doctor (that’s right back to school, really expensive school)

-Got married

-Bought a condo in the big city

-Spent Christmas away from my family for the first time EVER

-Went to Vegas

-Went to Mexico

-Had professional photo shoots

-Broke up with some friends

-Gained some amazing friends

-Did a test shoot for a magazine, got in the finals to be on the cover of a magazine.

-Started writing a column for a newspaper (Healthy Lifestyles with Amy Layne)

And there are a million more things that have happened but these are the main points. The last 3 years have been filled with tough stuff but I prevailed.  It is amazing what a Skype session with a girlfriend, some wine, kick butt workouts and good house hold purge will do for a girl. I look back on the last couple years and have to smile. I am one strong chick. I am grateful for everything that has happened to me. I am in refection mode because David and I have a tradition we formed and love. Every New Years we spend talking about the year passed, writing out our goals for the next year, vision-boarding and cleaning our house. Weird right? But we love it. It is our thing. This year we have some BIG things on the go and you will find out more later, but here are a couple things you will be able to count on here at the Blog. I am going to be doing some product reviews. I am a woman that LOVES products. I love finding the best of the best then sharing it with everyone! I also have some expertise in my background as well. See in my pre- Trainer, Holistic Nutritionist days I was an Esthetician, Skin Care Specialist and Make up Artist.  If there are any products you would like me to talk about or share just comment below! I am going to be doing videos and blogs! I will be starting with some body sprays I got over the Holiday break (I smell yummy and different everyday…*BLISS*  I will of course be doing my fitness and nutrition blogs but want to hear more from you!
