Not being able to keep my friends from being able to suffer at all for any reason. I told God when my mom passed away from cancer that I could handle it and that it was ok, but I only ask in return that none of my friends ever have to go through such an awful experience. He is not listening and it makes my soul cry. I never wanted any of my loved ones to go through that, unfortunately they are and I wish there was more I could do.


Imagining the church doors opening and everyone watching me and my dad walk. The only thing in my life that I will ever be nervous about.


Knowing that I get to spend the rest of my days with a man that makes my life better than my dreams

Your 24

The reason for the name of this blog...Your 24 is that this has become a vision for me in many ways. A professional business as well as a motivation to share with those I know.

I think it came from something I heard once or maybe I made it up, I really don't recall. But Your 24 comes from the statement.... "We all have the same 24 hours, what are you going to do with yours." I go further to share how can I help you achieve more in your 24 hours.

Maybe just reading the quote will help someone become self motivated to do more with their time, but eventually this blog will turn into my website that I am currently working on a design for.

Go accomplish something with your 24!

Home Sweet Home

I'm currently in my favorite of all places, Home Sweet Home Florida....not Alabama. Arrival to the Orlando airport..ride shuttle....get bag....and step outside into heaven. Yes, heaven. There is nothing to me like stepping into that wonderfully steamy hot Florida weather. Some may call me crazy but it doesn't matter where I go on my travels. Everytime I land somewhere in the state of Florida I get an excitement, one like I did the night before Christmas as a kid or just before I open a present. There is truly nothing like home sweet home no matter where that is for you.

I will always know I'm home by that feeling I get when I'm here. Its something no other place in the world can give me.

I miss you Florida, my Home Sweet Home.

Insanity....yet Sane

While deciding on a new fitness avenue other than my typical 2-a-days which include running and weights or some intense cardio option. I had heard of D1 sports, this a sports specific training facility that also holds boot camp style classes for adults...aka executives. I have friends that attend D1 and always wanted a next level style of workout so I finally decided to check out D1 in cool springs/nashville. With a wedding coming up and some very important photo shoots prior to that I decided now or never, you've only got weight to lose.

For all of you crazies out there looking for the next level I suggest you check out a D1 next to you or try to find something close to it.

Here is a list of things we do almost every class (mind you the class is only 1 hour long):
Stadiums - and lots of them
Bear crawls
LOTS of reps of weight excercises..usually 30 seconds or a minute is the time frame
crazy amounts of push-ups mixed in with suicides (my first day i did 235)
crab crawls
dips, incline pushups, squats, lunges, deadlifts, tricep kickbacks (in a one arm pushup position), curls, etc...all the standard excercises intermingled with the extra stuff
stair hops
tire pushes (the tire IS the devil)...these tires weigh up to 350 pounds and you get to push them against the turf...YAY fun!

Regardless - If you are Insane yet sane like myself----I suggest you try to find something like this.

Its the best thing I've ever done. Reminds me of all those great years in high school when it was all so easy. :)
