About Me

My photo
What's up everyone?!?!?! My birth name is Elizabeth but most of my friends and family call me Liz. I'm from good old Iowa and have lived here all of my life. I am a very outgoing fun loving gal. I'm the type to be up for anything and i LOVE to laugh! My dream is to get my very own hog... not the animal hog but a Harley hog and I can now say that this dream has finally been achieved!!!! There is nothing like the feeling of hitting the pavement with the wind blowin' your hair a mess. You get to see and experience so much. No air condition, no radio, the wind in your hair, watch out for those bugs they can give ya a lil sting when they hit ya at 70mph. Elvis Presley once said Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine! I love that saying... Well stay tuned to hear some of my experiences and stories from the wide open highway! Always remember keep the paint up and the rubber down : )

Monday Funny : )

A little old lady decides to join The Hell's Angels!

One day she goes up and knocks on their clubhouse door. A big, hairy, bearded biker with tattoos all over his arms answers. She boldly proclaims, "I want to join your club."

The guy is amused, and decides to humour her a bit, so he says she needs to meet certain biker requirements in order to join. The biker asks; "Do you have a motorcycle?"

The little old lady replies, "Yep... My bike's parked over there," and points to a flamed black Harley chopper in the driveway.

The biker asks, "Do you drink?"

The little old lady replies, "Yep, like a fish. I'll drink any man in your club under the table."

The biker then asks, "Do you smoke?"

The little old lady replies, "Yep, smoke like a chimney. At least 4 packs of cigarettes and three joints a day and a couple of cigars in the evening, while I'm shooting pool."

The biker is very impressed and asks, "You sound like one bad Mama. Tell me, have you ever been picked up by the fuzz?"
The little old lady thinks for a minute and says, "Nope, but I've been swung around by my nipples a few times and I kinda liked it."

Here is a lil Monday Funny for ya ; )

Begining the Journey

Do you ever feel restless in your own skin? Not happy in your own skin? Ready for a change? Well this is the year for me! I have been feeling that way about my weight. I know i know... Loosing weight is like the #1 New Years resolution & the #1 that gets broken. But I AM going to do it this year!
My cousin is getting married in about 6 months and i am her maid of honor which i am ecstatic about : ) Well she is a personal trainer and she is determined to trim the fat so to speak before her wedding... Well she sure has lit a fire under my ass which is totally what i have needed. We are actually going to to a "Biggest Looser" thing through the YMCA. We weigh in Jan 25th to start then weigh in again in April sometime for the final. It is only $10 to be apart and you need a 4 person team. We have the team and the money so why not give it a shot. Plus there is a great payout at the end too! I mean who wouldn't want an extra $400 for free plus your shedding your extra fat at the same time! I have already started watching what i eat and am doing pretty darn good. Now just to keep it all up and get busy with my work outs : ) Wish me luck and i will keep you posted
about My Journey : )

This is what im sure my scale is saying to me right now LOL!!!!
