Life is Good!

Ok here's a run down of what's happened since...February! Like the last post said, we've decided to become distributors of Herbalife and we are still going strong! First things first...we had to get our results on the products before we could really know what we were doing and help other people do the same. And boy did we get results!!!

Before the Herbalife products, Quinton started out weighing 226 lbs. He has now lost 32 lbs. weighing in at 194! This is the first time in 9 years that Quint has weighed under 200 pounds!!!! A HUGE accompolishment for him! He has also lost a total of 52 inches and now has lots more energy and stamina throughout the day and when he's mountain biking. Way-to-go honey!

As for me, I weighed my highest last summer (2008) at 172 lbs. and I wore a pants size 13/14. I also had no energy! I'd put Carson down for a nap and then I'd curl up on the couch for a nap myself. Now, after just starting on the products in February, I weigh 140 lbs. and lost about 24 inches! I don't take naps with Carson anymore and I'm now down the the smallest pants size that I've EVER been in...size 4!!!! Even in middle school and high school, I've never been under a size 7 or 8. And here's the best part.....I don't exercise EVER!!!!! haha The only exercise I can count is my job- cleaning banks 3 nights a week. :)

This has been the easiest thing we've ever done and we feel better than we ever have! We've never been more healthy than we are right now! That's only part of the story though... The rest of my family are still on the products also. My dad has now lost 114 lbs. and 126 in. My mom's lost 30 lbs. and 56 in. My brother has lost 45 lbs. and my sister has lost 20 lbs.

Our mission now is to- pay it forward! Help other people regain they're lives back and help them feel as good as we do! One way that we are doing this is by hosting Weight Loss Challenges. Has everyone heard of "The Biggest Loser" reality show on tv? Well that's what we're doing! Everyone in our family, including Quint and I, are doing these challenges all over St. George! They are so much fun and motivating! For all of the participants who pay into the Challenge, we do nutrition classes for them (we will support any healthy and safe diet/program that they decide to do), give them a Personal Wellness Coach (us) and help them all the way through to the end. Some people get on our products and some people don't but the people who are crowned the "biggest losers" in the end, usually had the Herbalife products to help them. ;) It's so exciting and we're really making a difference in people's lives! It feels great!

Here we go...

Hello Friends!

Quinton and I just wanted to give all of you a heads up on the newest thing we're doing! We've discovered a nutrition system called Herbalife. Many of you have probably heard of this product line before; it's been around for 29 years and is in 70 countries. What sets Herbalife apart is its patented cellular nutrition program which is the core of the product line. This program consists of a meal-replacement shake and a multivitamin that work synergistically together to give your body the vitamins and nutrients it requires. The third product included in the core is the Cell Activator. This amazing supplement actually works to repair your body at the cellular level from the damage we've done to it from poor dieting habits, stress, pollution, etc. It helps your body to more fully absorb the good nutrition it's now getting. From that point, we can then go in to personalize your program to address your specific needs. Some of these needs include: Stress Management, Digestive Health, Heart Health, Children's Health, Energy & Fitness, and probably the most common...Weight Management. The list goes on and on!

We were first introduced to this product by my parents. They got on the product to loose a little bit of weight before their vacation to Hawaii. Bruce has now lost 97 lbs. and over 100 inches and Cris has lost 25 lbs. and 36 inches. After seeing their results, my brother and sister also got on the product. Nolan has now lost 45 lbs. and Tionna has lost 20 lbs.! We have truely seen a transformation in our family! Everyone has more energy throughout the day and gained confidence in themselves and in life! Not to mention they look great! Me, Nolan and Tionna have all said about our dad (who's been fighting with depression and low self-esteem) "We finally have our dad back!!"

This experience has made such on impact on our life that Quint and I have set a goal to also become more healthy and try to loose weight. We believe that Herbalife is the best product line out there to help us achieve our wellness goals. We have also decided to become distributors (or better put, Personal Wellness Coaches) for this company. Since Quint and I have been on the products, we've lost 10 lbs. combined in 2 weeks. Not to mention, we have a lot more energy throughout the day. :)

If anyone is interested in learning about the products...or if you know of someone else who might be interested, please let us know! We are not here to just sell products, we are here to sell RESULTS! We are fully committed to coaching everyone all along the way because we know it's much harder to do it on your own!

Canada Trip!

So for this year's Cananda trip, we went up to see Quinton's bother come home off his mission. We weren't able to go up for very long but it was a quick trip that was a lot of fun and much needed! Carson got to know Einar for the first time (He was 5 months old when he left) and they had an instant connection! All weekend, Carson had to know where Einar was at all times and kept playing the game of "I've fallen and I can't get up" just so Uncle Einar would pick him up, over and over again! haha
Our first day there was Friday. We flew from Las Vegas, NV to Great Falls, MT. We got there late morning and had the rest of the day to drive to their home in Alberta (3 hours away) and hang out the rest of the day. On Saturday, Gramma Kinniburgh treated us all to lunch and then later, Quint and I, Katie and Einar all drove to Lethbridge (45 mins. away) to go shopping and out to eat. Carson got to stay home and hang out with Gramma Jensen...neither one was complaining! ;) On Sunday, we went to church to hear Einer give his talk. This is where Carson had us trying to contain our laughter the most! Einar was sitting up on the stand and of course, Carson had to ask, "Where Einar go? Where Einar go?" ...loudly. Then once Carson found where he was sitting, he extravagantly waved at him high in the air embarrassing him, I'm sure! But it was so hard trying not to laugh! Then there was a musical number where a lady sang a beautiful song that captured Carson's attention. As soon as she was done singing, Carson yelled out. "WooWooWoo!" Just like he does at any other concert or performance! It was hillarious and everyone in the room immediatly turned to look at Carson and snickered right along with us! That's where I got embarrassed! THERE IS NEVER A DULL MOMENT WITH CARSON!!!
The rest of Sunday was spent at their home with friends and family stopping in to visit all night long. It was great to see everyone again!
Monday night we went home. Carson was pretty good on both plane trips this time and absolutely loves watching out the window whenever there is something to see. He's just like his dad in that aspect! My only complaint about the whole trip was...HOW COLD IT WAS UP THERE! I was deffinately not ready for the weather and it gave me a whole new appriciation for St. George weather...even the hot months! I LOVE St. George!!
Here is a picture of Carson and Einar....Best Buds from the hood! ;)

This winter season has been so much fun! Normally in St. George, we only get about 1-2 days of snow each year and it usually happens after Christmas sometime. This year, we've gotten about a week's worth of snow days already and all before Christmas! So if we plan like every other year, that means we still have a few more snow days to come! I know other people may be thinking how crazy I am for loving the snow this much but then you just don't understand "St. George snow". White snow on the red mountains...pretty! And then when it snows down here, it usually doesn't even snow enough to stick on the ground. That means we get to enjoy it and see how pretty it is but the most important part is that we DON'T HAVE TO DRIVE IN IT! Yay!
This year, we had a whole day and night where it snowed and left us the next morning with about 3-4 inches! It has NEVER snowed that much in the whole 11-ish years that I've lived down here. I was so excited! The next day, they called a "snow day" from school and all the kids got to stay home and play in the snow! Can you believe that?!! 3 inches of snow and they call a "snow day." I remember living in Salt Lake City and walking to school every day in that much snow! So anyways, me and Carson decided to go over to my parent's house to play in the snow with Nolan, Tionna, and some of their friends. We made a snow man...first time doing that here! We had a snowball fight, and we went sledding down our neighbor's driveway! We had a lot of fun and Carson learned how to pick up snow and throw it at someone. It's pretty much an automatic reaction to seeing snow now...see snow, pick it up, throw it at the person clostest to him! Ta-dah!
We hope everyone one else out there is having as much fun as we are in the snow! :)

Our house in the snow!

This year for New Year's, we decided to do our own party. First, me, Quint, and Carson went down to Town Square in St. George for they're 10th year anniversary of "First Night". This is a big celebration that the city puts on. It starts at 7pm and goes till midnight. They had entertainment for everyone of all ages. Blow up bounce houses, mechanical swings, arts and crafts for the young kids. "Dance Dance Revolution," "Rock Band," and karaoke competitions for the teenagers and up. A car show, a magician, a music concert, and more...for everyone. They also put out huge metal garbage cans all over the place with open fires inside so people can stand around them for warmth. (Yes it was a cold night! Probably between 25-35 degrees) We just put Carson in the stroller and walked around for about an hour checking everything out. Carson just loved seeing everything going on!
Then we left and went back to our house to meet our friends from our old ward, Luke and Kristelle Wilkins. We turned up the music, played pool, and ate. Then we broke out our new game called, "Would You Rather?" For anyone who hasn't heard of this's hilarious and a lot of fun! We played games all the way till midnight. Then our friends left but Quint and I were still wide awake so we played games again till after 1am. We had a great time and love getting together with family and friends to celebrate the holidays!

We have friends that live in Cedar City and we all got together and said it was about time for another sledding trip. I was certainly ready because the last time everybody went, I had to stay home and work. :( This time Carson was able to go as well! I'm not sure he had as much fun as the rest of us though... He usually loves playing in the snow but we made the mistake of taking him down on the sled right away. The hill was kinda big and he was sitting in my lap. By trying to keep us from going too fast I kept my feet in the snow. Well that also kicked up a lot of snow into our faces and he didn't like that AT ALL! From then on he was cold and in a bad mood. Poor kid! But the rest of us had fun and really enjoyed the snow. Next time we take Carson sledding we'll be sure to start him out on smaller hills! :)
