So, in December we got a puppy. In case you haven't guessed it, we called her Asia. Not only am I not a dog person (I have been afraid of them ever since I was a kid), I am not a Doberman person. It was always the fear of the unknown. You see, I hate to not be in control. Dogs are so unpredictable, you never know if or when they will bite you. My husband has always wanted a Doberman and I always said no because growing up the Dobermans in the neighborhood had a horrible reputation, they always barked and you never quite knew if the rumors of them biting neighborhood kids were true or not. Well, whatever I thought about Dobermans were not true. At least not in Asias case, she is a very cuddly, sweet puppy. I have never had a puppy so I didn't know quite what to expect. Once we got past her getting up every two hours to pee every night, we have really enjoyed her. I love to see the kids with her, she just loves them. I am so glad that they will have a dog to grow up with. So, here are some pictures of beautiful Asia:

I don't know why I can't keep this blog up. I love to write, and I love to spew out things I am feeling. Right now I am feeling like the next two weeks are only going to crawl. You see, I have entered a bodybuilding competition in the bikini division. I am not sure what I was thinking...I am excited, yet so scared to show the world my "mom" body. I just have to go back to the reason I wanted to do it in the first place. I know I am a strong person, and I want to do it for myself. I did not anticipate how hard the last month of training would be. Very low in carbs and eating the same thing day after day after day. Oh and did I mention that I work out six days a week, sometimes at 5 in the morning. The changes I see in my body are exciting! The competition is two weeks from today and I find myself with a mix of emotions. Excited, scared, nervous, and happy all at the same time. After the competition I go to my parents house for a few days for spring vacation. I am going to be so ready!!
