Needy


I NEVER thought I was going to be the "needy girlfriend". And yet, here I am. It's hard to separate yourself from someone you've seen every day for 8 months, and now he wants to "take a step back". We haven't seen each other all day (unless you count this morning when we woke up together... but he had to go straight home, so I don't :P) & I'm going stir crazy. I'm desperate to even just hear his voice. 15 more minutes til he's done studying. This is not a good situation, I know. I need to seriously get myself together. This is NOT healthy.

On another note, does anyone know if there's a way to make your blog or certain posts private? I've been trying to find a way, but can't seem to do it lol. Am I totally overlooking something?

Hair Love

I can't believe I'm still gaining followers, even though I've been absent from the blogging world for AT LEAST a month. I'll be posting a weight loss update soon. I'm just sitting in the library taking a break from my calc 2 homework & wanted to share my new hair routine love.

Lately I've been in to not using any heated styling tools to my hair. My hair is naturally curly so you can imagine how dry it is since I usually like to either make pretty curls with a curling iron or flat iron it.

I like to sleep with my hair wet the night before and put it into one braid, to help tame the frizzies and curls. I don't want my hair to be curly when I wake up, just wavy. When I wake up, I take the braid out and spray with some sea-salt spray. Tease a little at the roots & I'm out the door! I got this idea from belledujour on youtube.

Bad Blogger!

Ugh, I know! I am SUCH a bad blogger! I suck! I wish I could be like all the good bloggers and post daily, the way I used to be back in xanga days! Lately I've just been lurking pages not even leaving comments!!! *Shock horror** So let's recap

1) I haven't posted in about 3 weeks
2) I lurk other people's blogs & don't even leave comments

If that doesn't equal bad blogger I don't know what does!

Lately, I've lost interest in the makeup community *even bigger shock horror* & have moved on to blogs such as The fitnessista, biochemista, and pbfingers (to name a few of my FAVES) Would you totally stop following me if I did posts like those?

Let's see, last time I weighed in I was 113.4 this morning I weighed in at 110.0! Amazeballs! I haven't been losing the weight as fast as I originally wanted to, but I really don't have a problem with that. I will post a picture next week. If you don't remember I was originally trying to lose the weight for my cousin's wedding, so I'll post a picture of what I'll be looking like for the wedding.

Even after the wedding I will continue to live out my healthy eating/living. Better believe I WILL be eating In-N-Out, Yoshinoya, and El Pollo Loco (all in moderation of course) in Cali. Oh how I've missed Cali food!

I'll leave you with a creation I found while lurking other blogs. It looks like a disaster but I SWEAR it is serious good eats!

Overnight OIAJ (oats in a jar)

1/2 c. greek yogurt
1/2 c. oats
Splash unsweetened vanilla almond milk
5 frozen strawberries
1/2 frozen banana
1 tbsp ground flax seeds

Mixed together in an almost empty peanut butter jar and placed in the fridge overnight. Wake up in the morning, stir it all together and enjoy! :)

Ok so Teen Mom is on right now so I really must go! Hope everyone is having a wonderful week! Is everyone ready for school to start back up? My university starts back up on Monday! Eeek!

Ditching the Skinny Bitch (Diet day 7)



It's been a whole week. And to be honest, I couldn't even follow the Skinny Bitch way of living for the whole 7 days. The book has it's points, but I just can't be convinced to become vegan. For me it's an expensive inconvenience.

I mean I do love me some BOCA meatless chicken patties, but dang I am a college student here!

One of my FAVORITE meals on the Skinny Bitch meal plan:
(Strawberry soy yogurt, 1/2 banana, 1/2 mango, 3 strawberries, handful of blueberries & blackberries) Definitely a breakfast I will continue to eat.

I have taken a lot of other stuff from the book, though, that I will continue to practice. Mainly, eating more towards raw or natural, minimal processing for my foods please!

I found these girls on youtube, they are REALLY inspirational. I'm trying out their protein pancakes later this week. If you want a review let me know! Well even if you don't, I probably will post a review anyway!

I have been keeping a food journal to help keep me on track. I also write down the exercise I did for the day. I was thinking about transferring the info to my blog, but thought it might be too boring.

So Day 7 of project lose 10lbs, I am down 2.8 lbs from last week. So this morning I weighed in at 113.4 :)

Thank you to everyone who has wished me good luck on my journey! It means the world to have such a nice group of supporting followers :D

Pudgy Pics (Project Skinny Bitch Day 1)

Some of you doubt that I need to lose weight. So I have (hesitantly) decided to post some "before" pictures of me. As you can tell I can easily stand to lose at least 10 lbs.

Starting weight: 116.2

Today started day 1 of project Skinny Bitch. The book is really based on turning you vegan, and although they make some good points, I'm not sure the vegan lifestyle is for me. I'm sticking to the diet plan as close as I can though.

Breakfast:
1/2 of a 170 gram container of soy yogurt
1/2 mango
1/2 banana
1 honeycot (had no idea what this was, decided to try it out, I could do without this fruit in my life)

Snack:
1/2 Peanut Butter Cookie LARA Bar

Lunch:
1 BOCA meatless chicken patty between
Orowheat sandwich thins (whole grain)
and a tablespoon of Dijonaise
Vidatea

Dinner:
Baby green salad with:
egg (not recommended in the book)
tomato
red onion
2 TBSP of Olive oil & vinegar dressing with a squeeze of lemon juice

2nd Snack:
3 Dates

I didn't make it to the gym today [insert excuse about being in summer school and working]. Really though there should be NO EXCUSE. Tomorrow I plan to wake up early and hit the gym, instead of trying to go after work.

&& Also I'd like to say, although I'm giving myself 30 days to lose weight, I will continue to learn from this new diet and apply to my lifestyle. I want to make this a lifestyle change.

No Excuses


Monday I'm going to attempt the "Skinny Bitch" diet for AT LEAST 30 days. My friend went on a modified version of it and lost 10 lbs in 4 weeks. I have a wedding to attend in about that time & I REFUSE to be THAT cousin. You know, the one that used to be stick thin & is not so much anymore...

I will be keeping track of what I ate each day, and if I exercised what type of exercise I did. Me and my sister recently renewed our personal training appointments & extended it for another 12 months. We WERE paying $160 ($80 each) for once a week training sessions, 4 times a month. Since they had a special going on yesterday we are now paying $104 ($52 each) for the same thing. Yay for "saving" $30 a month. I mean I guess technically if we didn't choose to renew we would be saving a lot more, but I think it's completely worth it. And plus, for the next 4 weeks we have twice a week sessions! So if nothing else, I will have AT LEAST 1 day of working out (2 in the next 4 weeks). But of course, I know I need to be at the gym more than that.

ROMP this!

During the summer, I always stock up on cute summer dresses. But last week at Target while I was looking for some cute sun dresses, all I could hear were these ROMPERS screaming at me! I bought 2, and next thing you know this week I'm back for more! I can't get enough of them!

Here I'm wearing one of the rompers I bought last week from Target ($19.99! -- hello great deal!). I paired it with a cardigan just incase I got cold indoors. We went to an outdoor church bazaar afterwards & so the cardigan got stuffed into the car & hello shoulders!

Don't mind the messy room, it's my sisters. She has a bigger mirror than I do (probably a bigger mirror than most do! What can I say, she loves herself haha). What do you guys think of rompers yay or nay?

ps- my old time childhood bff has a blogger now! She is amazing at makeup go and check her out!! Link here *hearts*

ppss- Thanks for all the suggestions on my comment etiquette question I asked in my last post. For now, I think it will be easier to respond on the other person's blog. I think for people with a lot more followers it's just easier to respond to their blog post since they have many more people to respond to :P

OH AND also, don't think I forgot the awards & tags I've been nominated for Mimi, Grace, and PinkOrchids Those posts are coming soon to a blog (well mine) near you!
