Next Wednesday will be the 21st of November which means it’s been 9 years since my dad passed.  I was doing pretty good this week thinking about how far I’ve come since I started this account. 
I brought a life into this world and lost one all in the same year and like most “millennials” I made this account so that I didn’t have to be apart of society anymore after that, but here we are and I ended up helping in build community centered on emotional health & wellbeing, but even after that didn’t work out the community of people YOU have helped me in my journey and it’s never left my mind.  So thank you, and instead of a sad depressive post I’ll share the best parts of my dad and my favorite memories.
Our favorite song was “Wild Side” by The Velvet Underground and our favorite movie of ALL TIME  “The Jerk” starring Steve Martin.  His favorite band was Led Zeppelin and he collected hot wheels...who remembers that?! During those “out of normal” hot summer days he would wait out in the garage for the mailman and then walked to the end of the driveway with an ice cold Pepsi classic for him every time.  He cried like a baby during both my high school & college graduations while my birth father sat next to him talking in the phone. He taught me how to drive in that beast of a Toyota T100 pickup truck I had cursed by putting on a Rosie the Riveter sticker. We used to crash open houses together- me for the snacks & him for remodeling ideas. He never left the house without getting the ok from me about the outfit he chose that day.
He was my voice of reason and the best friend I never knew I had.  After graduation there were only two other times I saw him smile so big his whole head looked like a giant raisin from all the laugh lines.  While watching my sister’s high school graduation and the day he found out he was going to be a grandpa. This is a photo of my parents in Hawaii on a family vacation, he was 43yrs-old defying the odds, living each day and stylin I might add
With a life expectancy of 35yrs and making it to 49 with all of that under his belt (and so much more)
What a life he had

As of today I officially have cabin fever at a level of Stanley Kubrick proportions and now I’m feeling like a fish outta water with this flashback.  Colleges and entire school districts closed in the are that I live because the air quality is that dangerous to breath and still people aren’t taking the extra measures in putting masks on their little ones even after the fire departments started handing out mask for FREE.  The California fires just keep getting worse with the death tolls rising and the amount of people that have lost everything on top of getting sick in evacuation centers with Thanksgiving only a week away.  What a year you have been 2018.  What a year you have been.

When I’m not getting flooded with messages about supplements, wraps, “better coaching” or some sort of power bar aimed towards female empowerment as well as attempts to pray on insecurities with my body I’m getting asked, “what the hell is that white picket fence thing behind you in some of your photos?”
That’s actually for my small business @mojavesunsets to serve as a photo backdrop when I’ve finished weaving a tapestry.  It kept me busy on nights I couldn’t sleep and is one of many creative outlets I use to center myself when I can’t get out for a hike.  I dabble in woodworking having made large art pieces, doors and currently a idea for a dining room table my moms wanted since the 60s among a million other things “I can just make instead of buy”. I know my way around a wood shop, metal shop, your grandpa’s old tool chests but surprisingly I do not know how to mow a lawn...🤔 (long story my dad wouldn’t let my sister and I). Anyway Mojave Sunsets got put on the back burner after things in January happened and I made my mental and physical health top priority.  That’s when I stumbled on Zoco’s twenty40 training, which eventually led me to Leila @ananta_yogawithoutlimit 
My life is falling into place before my eyes, no more anger, no more resisting change or battling myself over making others proud of me.  Now all that matters is that I’m proud of me.  Mother, artist, friend, hiker, yogi, I am a body pro. Anyhoo, still weaving and sanding when I have free time and the energy and hope to get back to it at some point, but right now I like where my journey is headed

Also, maybe stop asking me for the recipes and just buy his book, make the meal and invite me over for dinner.  I do love a man that can cook ‍ or girl’s night is always fun

It’s been a pretty rough week for California with last week’s elections followed right up with two major fires and as important as sending relief, making donations, helping in anyway you can don’t forget to stop, breathe and check in with yourself.  This is me being an idiot at a wedding because you can’t take me anywhere.  Did it distract you? Good.  Make sure you’re wearing your masks because the air quality may not look bad but you can’t see all of those particles and other badness that we are breathing in.  Sent my little j to school with a mask on because him and I are extremely asthmatic and we didn’t see anyone else wearing a mask even though everyone was coughing their lungs out.  Take care of yourself and your little ones because there will be long term affects for our babies when they are older.

Sending my love to the families who’ve lost everything in the Camp & Woolsey fires and keeping every firefighter and their families in my thoughts and heart at this time.  When our country’s leader feels the need to demean us for issues out of our control and completely under his let’s stay California Strong🧡

One of many personal battles I struggle with daily is pushing myself and pushing my body.  I have ALWAYS been GO GO GO GO, a hit the ground running kind of person always ready for the next project or adventure (but also very ready to take a nap in a nice comfy spot -don’t be fooled by my enthusiasm🤫). I haven’t been hiking lately because my local spot has been closed due to it being peak fire season where I live which is why I’m really happy with my results from Twenty40 training and using my time at home to practice on the mat and then letting @ananta_yogawithoutlimit kick my bum in Vinyasa!  Looking back through my photos tonight it’s been really eyeopening to see how incredible our bodies are when going through so much positive change.  It’s so easy to get to that point where giving up and giving in becomes more than tempting, it becomes the end game and then before I knew it I was stuck.  In my case losing my dad, undiagnosed postpartum depression, unmanaged stress + stress eating led me to an end game (or so I thought) but now I’m here!  I can tell I’ve gained some pudge in this photo compared to the last progress snaps I took, but ya know what?  I’m not even worried about it mainly because with that recent relapse with my lower back pain, I forced myself to rest (stubbornly -yes adult temper tantrums were involved but I promise you the squirrels in the backyard got their two cents in for all the times my bark brigade chased them off and took their treats) and realized I recovered in half the amount of time!  Normally two weeks of sulking and muscle relaxers but staying consistent with my training and yoga routine proved my sassy ass wrong once again
20 min HIIT/day + Vinyasa/Yin + chasing after little ones + everything else in between.... I think I’m starting to get this down guys

That one time we went on a family vacation in Hawaii and we were surprised with a scuba excursion and found out for the first time that I’ll never be able to because you can’t when you have asthma.... So, while everyone went under the sea I ended up flirting my way onto a lifeguard’s surfboard, paddle out over the reef my family was exploring and was able to get the next shot just 3ft in front of the big fella.  I can close my eyes and still remember that moment

My hearts been feelin pretty heavy this morning about the current state of our country.  It feels like a sucker punch to the gut every time I think about the fact that my boy is growing up in an age where mass shootings are an often occurrence and prepping a detailed exit strategy before attending any event, outing or just an errand run is a normal part of planning.  The mass shooting last week in the Jewish synagogue where 11 people lost their lives, the latest one in Thousand Oaks consisting of many of the survivors of the Las Vegas music festival that made it out of that alive, but not this.  Adding the fire and mass evacuations of that area the past two days in Southern California...
I’m so ashamed of the leadership in this country and the lack of professionalism on the president’s part in the way he’s handled himself mainly because my son is witnessing that kind of behavior in a “role model”??? As his parent it’s my job to protect, correct and guide him yes -I just never thought I’d find myself 95% ready and willing to leave my golden state of California and the US to live elsewhere.  I know very well how lucky I am to be a US citizen while others seek refuge and are turned away from here.  Feeling very mama bear about this one today, considering moving and starting over, hoping the many victories from November 6 will make the changes we need in this country🇺🇸

Once upon a time I used to dress to the 9s, worked a full-time job at a ultra conglomerate company, had my own apartment with a live-in boyfriend, was a full-time student and yes, I even used to drink (well occasionally truth be told I've never been much of a drinker). Yes....I had those china doll bangs too....
Then, well life happened.  A bunch of really sad stuff happened to my family and I packed up, dropped out of college, moved home, became a mum and to be honest as hard as these past several years have been I love my life now.  Maybe even more now that I have my eyes set on something for me for the first time in a very long time.  The kind of goal I wake up excited about and look forward to everyday.  The daily shit is still there, deep breathes and hiking save me from pulling my hair out most days but I can't imagine being the person I was in this photo right now.  The one thing I still got?  This lady.

YOU GUYS
3000 of you really find me that interesting? 
First, I am so incredibly grateful for this community, so THANK YOU for all of the love and support you’ve given me the past several years!  It started with The Crybaby Club and I’ll be forever grateful for the connections I made from that community even though I made the decision to leave, but I can’t even begin to express how much you and all of the connections I’ve made on this little platform have added to my life.  There are so many times people I know and love have told me not to share so much of myself, or that no one wants to know and TMI, but if you only knew the number of people that have reached out to me thanking me and the friendships I’ve made with those and the lessons I’ve learned from them in return just by staying true to myself in being vulnerable and honest with myself choosing to document it here. 
This community has had a hand in helping me become the best possible person I can be in this moment and you only add to my life as each day goes on helping me fill my life with substance.  2018 started out traumatic, but for the first time EVER in my entire life its going to end in a huge bang, and 2019….its going to start of explosive and I’m dying to share it all with you!  I fell into a deep hole in January, but after finding the Twenty40 Lifestyle & training program I didn’t just climb, I bear crawled my ass out of it into the brightest light of my life and now my life is moving at warp speed.  I have my family, I have the family I’ve chosen in friends, I’ve continued to evolve into a better mother, I’ve come into a new family of yogis and I’m getting ready to embark on a trip of a lifetime and another journey of self discovery and the most interesting thing amongst all of this….all of those times I ignored my gut, its telling me love is coming my way.  How cliche and pretentious is that to say right?  When you know, you know. I love my life and I love ALL of you.  Thank you for being apart of my life xoxox, JP

Rejection.  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been rejected in my life and not just romantically which is what most seem to assume when rejection is brought up.  In friendships, familial relationships, jobs, overlooked when at least a pat on the back or a thank you is deserved.  That’s been a big part of my self love journey, learning to have zero expectations whatsoever because that way there isn’t room for disappointed.  I’m someone who isn’t shy about telling people what they mean to me, how they’ve inspired me, or that I’m thankful for the lesson they’ve taught me, unfortunately the experiences I’ve had is that most people don’t know how to respond because our society doesn’t  encourage that kind of openness or praise of others looking at it as a way to weaken a person’s drive or work ethic and more.  I’ve just always been that way and I know it’s made people uncomfortable in the past as if I have ulterior motives or that I’m just “weird” but if being weird for expressing my gratitude for how someone has influenced and changed my life, WEIRD FLAG LOUD AND PROUD‍️.
Self love is also about treating yourself with kindness when someone you look up to won’t or doesn’t have the time too.  It’s that expectation of being the most important person in the world when we actually aren’t, that’s just our ego talking.  I am the most important person in MY world which is why I fight with and show myself love, understanding, compassion, encouragement and most importantly kindness so that I don’t expect something in return from those that I look up to can’t.  It’s not about me or them it’s about excepting that I am enough and to allow those that inspire me to continue to be a source of inspiration.  Thankful for all of the beacon of lights in my life, you know who you are xoxox.

Sharing my struggles with postpartum depression & undiagnosed mental illness as well as poor management by a physician has been the most freeing yet vulnerable process of my entire life.
I will never forget to honor the hard work that goes into self love, becoming and remaining vulnerable and being forthcoming with my own mistakes because it’s all given my journey a type of transparency that makes so much sense it’s neither frustrating or questionable for me, but more comfortable and understandable that I was just meant to go through it all.  That’s why I’m excited about becoming the newest member of the Kora Fitness team.  Yes I get to continue my Twenty40 Training & Lifestyle in style (haha that rhymed!) but I get to be apart of a team and a brand that I am 110% passionate about with their mission in supporting me to become the best version of myself at every moment of every day so that I can motivate the people I love (YOU) to be your best selves in and out of the gym.  When you make a purchase you’re not only helping someone in need, you get to actually choose where you want your contributions to go.  Each piece of athletic gear you purchase asks you to choose from the following four charities: Water, Hunger, Mental Illness and Child sex trafficking.  My first purchase instinctively went towards Mental illness, but my next I plan on choosing water because of the relationship I’ve always had with the ocean and in support of the animals, family and friends who surf.  Click my personal link in my bio.  Join me in lookin & feelin good about movin and making a difference. xoxox
