Hello September! =)

Good morning everyone! πŸ™‚ Happy Labor Day…I hope you all enjoy the holiday with friends and family. I have some things to do, but I might head to the beach later. I always love September, means cooler temps and FOOTBALL!

I have been waking up so early lately…I have always been a morning person and I love my mornings. I think some of you can relate, but not many. hehe! πŸ˜‰ It’s just so peaceful and quiet…I can get my thoughts and goals together for the day without interruption.

I have sooooo much going on right now, Buzz and I are getting ready for a big move once again. I don’t have time to go into details right now, but I will say I am so excited!!! I am so grateful for the present and the past, but looking forward to the future! Change is good, I can say I am not afraid of it anymore. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I have learned to enjoy the journey…this thing called life is so short. I am ready to explore new things…and when I say that I mean out of my box things. (not adult)

I am continuing my fitness in full force. Buzz too! I am so proud of us both honestly…we have not only changed our bodies, but our minds in so many ways. A healthy lifestyle never felt so good. πŸ˜‰ I have already toured the new gym that I will be joining and it’s amazing!! It offers everything I need and more.

I am going to be really busy now for awhile, but I will be sure to post here at least once a month. (maybe more)

Check out my Twitter and Instagram…I try and post there often. Here’s a look at my recent pics! ENJOY your day everyone…wishing you all the best.

Kisses,
Rach

 

 

 

 

Hello August!!!! ;)

Hello everyone!! August is almost half over already…geesh where does the time go???? The days/weeks/months just fly by! I have a lot going on now!! Lots and lots of changes coming into my life once again ….and I am sooooo excited about it. :)))) Details to come!

I have been working so hard on my health, I think I am actually addicted to physical activity for the first time in my life. I will thank Cross Fit for that. I love it! It is hard, but I love challenging myself. My body is changing and I am really happy with the changes.Β  I am still doing yoga, spin classes and exercising at the beach. I started jogging in the sand recently too. I can’t wait to get my breasts done (smaller) …I will be able to exercise better. Don’t get me wrong I am a huge fan of BIG boobs, but the time has come for me to go smaller.

My parents were here visiting for 2 weeks. We had a lot of fun!!! πŸ™‚ They are slowing down a bit, but we had a great time. Family time is the best time, I feel extremely blessed to have quality time with them still.

I FINALLY got in some camping time!!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ A group of us got together and enjoyed nature. The weather was perfect…sunny and warm during the day and great tent snuggling weather at night. We hiked, ate some really good food, enjoyed some cocktails around the fire, listened to some good music and played games. Take me back!!!! πŸ˜‰

That’s about all for now…I promise to write more soon!
Kisses,

Not quite August yet :)

Good morning!! I know it’s not August yet, but I have a little extra time this morning to type in my blog for the 2nd time in July. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

After I finished my last blog I felt my first earthquake ever!! It was crazy, I was sitting on my stability ball at my desk and it started rolling. Weird timing, right? I kind of ignored it, I just thought I was a little dizzy from my coffee (caffeine) I am very sensitive to it. Not sure how I can drink Vodka/Red Bulls and it doesn’t seem to bother me. LOL! Ha! πŸ˜‰ Buzz was in his office and said “babe, did you feel that?” It was a little scary I must admit. That was the 4th Of July,Β  then another one hit on the 5th. That one I was chilling on the couch watching Stranger Things and it actually started shaking things in my house! YIKES! Let’s hope the big one isn’t coming anytime soon. πŸ™

I am SUPER excited this morning, my parents are coming for a visit. YAY!!! I have so many fun things planned. They are excited to get out of the Arizona heat for a bit and relax at the beach. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I am so grateful that both my parents are happy and healthy still in their 70’s. πŸ™‚

Speaking of the beach, the weather is FINALLY getting nice enough to enjoy!! Meaning the sun is coming out and the temps are heating up. Woohoo!!

Buzz and I went to Black’s Beach a few times recently. If you don’t know…it’s a nude beach! YES Buzz did take some pics of me, but I am still waiting for them. Since he switched phones getting photos from him is like pulling teeth. πŸ˜‰ It’s really pretty there and totally chill. It’s quite the hike to get there though. Wow! I guess it’s not easy access for obvious reasons. If you go..pack some sneakers!! I watched people hike barefoot and even with flip flops. I am such a klutz, that wouldn’t work for me. πŸ˜‰

Tomato season has arrived! Yay! I know it doesn’t take a lot to excite me. hehe! It’s just something that reminds me of Nebraska growing up! I have such great memories and picking tomatoes out of our garden is one of them. Plus they are so delicious, the store ones just suck! I can’t wait to have a garden someday!!!

I am getting super excited to go camping soon. We just tested our new tent yesterday and it literally took a little over a minute to set up. AND that was without reading any directions. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ This nature girl is 100 percent READY!!!! Take me to the mountains!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I will take the mountains over the beach any day!!

I hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far!!Β  I will write again soon!!

Kisses,
Rach

 

 

 

 

Happy 4th Of July!!!!

Good morning everyone! I hope you all enjoy your holiday!! Have fun and be safe!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

It’s time for my monthly blog..so here it goes.

Yesterday was a rough day for me, I was sad which is rare for me. I am a happy, friendly, down to earth person 99.9 percent of the time. If someone asked me to explain myself, that is what I would say.Β  I had to say good bye to my dog Neo last July 3rd. Ugh! πŸ™ Losing a pet is like losing part of the family…it hurts. All you animal lovers get it. I am feeling much better today. I woke up at 5:00 feeling grateful for another day ahead.

I finally have a camping trip planned. YAY!!! I have a new tent and chairs in my Amazon cart as we speak. I had all that stuff in Arizona, but didn’t take it with the move. Time to buy some new stuff!! The tent we had was old and took like 5 hours to set up. lol! They have cool tents now that literally take 90 seconds to set up. I am on that!! I need my nature fix!! Can’t wait. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

My parents are planning a visit to come visit!! Another thing to look forward to. I miss them!

A bunch of us went out to celebrate Ian’s 30th birthday. We went to the Comedy Club then we went to a cool bar to play pool, shuffleboard and darts. I forgot how good I am at pool. Hehe! Just kidding! πŸ˜‰ We had a pool table when I grew up in NE and I played all the time. I forgot how much fun it is.

Buzz and I went to Hollywood to see Joe Rogan, he is so funny. I would recommend his show for sure! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

We have been keeping a quiet life really…working out and being healthy has taken a HUGE priority in our lives. Really digging the cross fit, yoga and spin classes. I see my body changing and I am quite happy with the results. I have a long way to go, but I am on my way. πŸ˜‰

Buzz has taken on a new hobby…converting regular bikes into electric bikes. He has done 3 so far. You probably didn’t know Buzz’s first job was working on bicycles and he used to race when he was young. Funny how things come back into our lives.

I think that’s all for now. Wishing you all a GREAT 4th Of July! Talk again in August. πŸ˜‰

Kisses,
Rach

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

June Post =)

Good afternoon everyone..Happy June! It’s that time again for my monthly post. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ I never thought I would say that. This used to be a place for me to write everyday. BUT since Twitter and all the other social media began things have changed. I own my blog though, big difference… my Twitter or Instagram can be taken down by someone else at any time. Speaking of Instagram, Buzz and I do have one. (AzianiLife) I find it nuts that Instagram is deleting porn stars just because they are “porn stars!!” Ridiculous!! I could go on and on about that, but not really worth my time. I just feel bad that it happens. We all know life is not fair.

So I took some time out yesterday and was missing one of my dogs, Josie died on June 12th, 2012. I miss her so much!! I miss all my babies … I think of them often. Neo died last July 3rd ..ugh! I can’t believe it will be a year!! I wouldn’t change a thing when it comes to my dogs…the unconditional love they give is the best thing ever! I will always have pets..I can’t imagine life without them. Speaking of pets..my dog and cat are doing good. They are BFF’s and it is so damn cute! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Yesterday Buzz and I boxed for the very first time, it was pretty cool. It was harder than I expected and I am even sore today. Trying new things is GOOD!! We are keeping active…exercising, working and playing! I always say moderation is key. πŸ™‚

Our lease is up soon so we have some big decisions to make about what’s next????????? I love the fact that we are not stuck in one place. I have some different ideas of where I want to live in the next few years…but now I just have to get Buzz on board. hehe πŸ˜‰ Adventure is calling!!

We spent some time in Dana Point, Laguna Beach and Huntington Beach recently. They are such beautiful cities, we had a lot of fun exploring them. California is an amazing state!!

I am getting the camping bug …BIG TIME!!! I love the beach, but I need to get out into the mountains. It is something my mind and body crave! I have been waiting for the weather to warm up to plan a camping trip. This June gloom is real! It is so cloudy and chilly at the beach still. It doesn’t feel like June at all. I am not complaining, but a little warmth and sun would be nice. πŸ˜‰

Fathers Day is this Sunday…I hope all you wonderful dads enjoy your special day. I don’t know why we really need holidays to celebrate Fathers..Mothers…etc They should be celebrated every day! Speaking of holidays, just think this year is almost half over. Ha! πŸ˜‰ Doesn’t even seem real, does it? Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas will be here before we know it. lol πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Ok..slow down please.

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a great day/week/month so far! I only wish happiness for everyone! πŸ˜‰ Believe it or not..I really do. I tried to think of someone that I wanted to punch yesterday when I was boxing and I came up with absolutely nobody. That is an amazing feeling to not have anger towards anyone. I realize having resentment about someone or something is only bad for my health. Life is toooooo short.

Here are some pics I wanted to share.

Talk again next month!! πŸ˜‰

Kisses,
Rach

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*May Post*

Good morning, I don’t have much time to write…I am off to CrossFit soon. I am getting so much stronger and faster. You should see me jump rope! LOL! πŸ˜‰ Yes boobs are bouncing all over the place. No matter if I wear 2 sports bras..it just doesn’t help much. Did I mention I am getting new boobs soon?? I haven’t scheduled the surgery yet, but it will be after the summer. I had my first implants back in 2009. It is absolutely crazy to think it’s been 10 years!!!! Seriously..NUTS! Time goes soooo fast. I am going to go smaller quite a bit actually…these big boobs get in my way of working out. I am in full force workout mode. I have never felt this way my entire life and I have worked out since I was in my 20’s. Buzz and I are doing yoga, spin class, crossfit, biking the beach and also walking my dog (and sometimes cat) 2 miles daily. We are on the go – go – go. It’s great though, we are both getting into better shape. 50? What? πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

Hope all you awesome moms had a great Mothers Day!!!!! I talked to my mom and she won some money at the casino so she was happy. πŸ™‚ I miss her!! That is the hardest part about living in CA, I miss my family a lot. I need to plan a trip back there, but I don’t want to go in the summer when it’s so hot. They are coming to visit us in July or August to escape the AZ heat. This August it will be 2 years since we moved. Once again…wow, time flies. I am really liking the beach…I don’t want to move away from it YET! However our lease is up in August and we are looking at other beach areas. So much to explore here. It really is an amazing state. Yes it has it’s problems, but all places do. I am still counting down my days until I can move to the mountains.

Buzz and I went to a beach concert and it was so much fun. They had 3 stages set up so it was cool to listen to some old bands along with some new ones. We even ran into an old friend, it’s a small world!!

It’s been pretty cloudy most days here so we haven’t had much beach time, I did buy a new bikini so I am patiently waiting for the sun. It’s funny because when I used to shoot I seriously had probably close to 50 bikinis at one time. Silly…I know. Now I am down to 3. πŸ™‚ It will be 5 years in June that I retired from shooting. What a great 15 years!!!! YES 15! I started in June 1999 and retired in June 2014. I have so many great memories, but I don’t miss it. Things change…people change. What’s the saying. β€œChange is the only constant in life.” Most people resist change..me included. However if you don’t change, you will never grow. You will never know what “could have been.” I can tell you that I am so happy we moved to Ca. It was the best decision at that time in our lives. I am also a big believer in timing! Buzz has wanted to move to Ca for so many years and I just didn’t think the timing was right. I suppose we never will know that…but what matters now is NOW! Live in the moment and be thankful for every day. πŸ™‚

Ok…enough babbling for now. I am off to sweat! hehe! Have a great day/week/month. Talk again in June probably. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Kisses,
Rach
