Made It To Utah
Hey everyone. I am now in Utah. Have been here since Sunday evening. I am at the resort here. It is absolutely beautiful here. It has been so surreal for me. I have to confess my heart hasn't been really into here. I miss everyone in Malibu so much. I want to go back so badly. I know that I will at some point, but I feel so disconnected and lost. That's been my home for 6 1/2 months. I have put my heart and soul into there. A piece of me feels like I have left it behind. The staff here has been great. It was good to see Denae and Lance and Cody and to finally meet Shayley. Denae is the Guest Services Manager here at the Utah resort, Lance is the CFO and Cody is the Retail Shop Manager, and Shayley works in Reservations. Oh and Sara. She works in Marketing. I was pretty disappointed because I was looking forward to seeing and training with Sione who was on season 7 of The Biggest Loser and now works here as a trainer. But he was gone this week at a promotional thing. I think he will be here on Saturday. I am trying not to judge or whatever, but it's hard not to. I have had several people ask me which resort I like better. I really don't know how to answer that except by saying that I am going to be partial to Malibu, because that is where I started my journey. The lectures here are different from Malibu. I had a guest say to me tonight that I seem really quiet and subdued. I laughed and told her "wait until you get to know me". I also told her to call the Malibu resort and ask them what I was like. It's interesting how people perceive you. I have been thinking about taking my story further and turning these blogs into a book. I met a girl here this week that is from Australia and who is a ghost writer. She helps people write books basically. Is that a sign from God or what???? I have really been enjoying the hikes here. They are different than in Malibu. It's dessert here so there is a lot of sand and rock. It really makes you appreciate God's creation and the beauty he made for us. Well it's late here and morning comes fast around here. I head home on Sunday. I'm really not looking forward to going home. I'm scared and nervous. Thank you everyone that has and is reading my blogs. It means the world to me to know that I am inspiring others to change their lives and make there dreams come true. You can do this. Take one step at a time, one day at a time. Don't look at the big picture. Take small bites. If you don't it will get too overwhelming and then you will give up. Remember, this is a lifestyle change.
