Well the season is winding down and there's only a few more weeks left. Jeana and I are really focused on losing weight this year, and I'm proud of her that she is finally taking care of herself and making herself a priority in 2009. I think this is going to be "her year"! The Duzoxin is working great for both of us, and between that supplement and our 6am workouts with Gabe — it's already making a difference.
I had a great time visiting my friends in family in Chicago this past summer. It's always good to reconnect with my friends who knew me before the show and continue to support and love me. I don't know if they are "different" from my Orange County friends, I just think I'm so much closer with them because of our history. I lived in Chicago until I was 32, so it's hard to replace any of them here. I also have some healthy relationships with great friends here in Orange County, so I feel the more close friends you have, the better off you are.
There are definitely times when I wished I lived back there, but it would be hard to handle the weather in Chicago during the winter months. I love living in Southern California and having a 20 degree temperature swing instead of a 100 degree. I am hopeful that my family starts migrating this way — that would be awesome. Come on Billy and Ann — we want you to move here!
