Roadtrip & Cali Recap

My brothers, sister and I made our way to California for our cousin's wedding. I'll be updating as I go along to make it easier on myself later on. Be prepared for updates in the incoming weeks!

Leeda had the nerve to recommend this place! We had a so-so breakfast somewhere near St. Louis, MO. This breakfast was not the way to start off a cross country road trip.

My cheeseburger done animal-style.

The first day we arrived in San Joaquin county, we didn't do much sight-seeing, but we did try out the burger at the infamous In-N-Out Burger. It wasn't the greatest burger in the world like nearly everyone says- it was ok! I've had juicier burgers. :-P

Cutie Kabee!

On Thursday, we visited a few more family members and saw a friendly face! My sister and I couldn't help but take a snapshot! Kabee was a cutie!

On Friday, our cousins took us to Monterey. We had an awesome time walking around Cannery Row and the Wharf in Monterey.

Family shot!

My poor Kyrene bumped her head!!

All ten of us eating at Bubba Gump's!

I also took a trip out to SF. It was tons of fun and there was lots to see-- good thing we're going back again with my cousins this weekend! Below are some of many pictures I've taken!

Gettin' my tourist on with some Tudor-lookin'man!

Leeda. Rethanak. FREEDOM.

He found a new friend!

I like that photobombing seagull!

Also, as some of you know, I've been lugging my camera around in an attempt to vlog our experience on the west coast.

My Health Journey so far!

This was taken when we first started dating. You can see in our faces that we weren't at all big.

As a kid (playing multiple sports a season like hockey, soccer, etc), I never weighed more than 115 lbs. I ate anything and everything I wanted. I ate full-sized candy bars, quarter of a box of pizzas, ate out almost every night... and never gained much weight.

This was taken at my cousin's wedding. We were at our biggest here!

That was the case until I was 23 when I jumped almost 10 lbs (124 lbs) and never looked worse. Ohhh, the woes of growing older. Around fall of last year, I made a pact with my fiance, Cristhian, and best friend, Amanda, to eat healthier and exercise more. We learned to eat smarter and move MORE. We've incorporated more fruits, veggies and whole grains into our diet. (Though we have our moments where we sneak in sweets...) We've learned about portion control. We go to the gym 4-5x a week to work on our cardio and strength train. Overall, we've gotten SO much better!

This is our most recent picture together taken at our trip to the circus.

After plateauing (120 lbs) for months, I've finally reached 115 lbs again, but I'm so much more toned compared to my high school years! I hope to reach 100-105 lbs!
