Diet Start!

Tomorrow begins my major rush to lose about 30 pounds by December. I know I said I would start my "journey" about a week ago, but of course stuff came up. When I return back to Georgia, I plan to do Slimquick's Cleanse and go hard with the working out. But while I am stuck in a hotel in Oklahoma, I will just try to do the treadmill and lay off all the bread.

Anywho....
Thanx for reading and I hope u follow my blog and check me out on YouTube!

Wrong Start

So today was a disappointing day and I won't count this as my starting point for my weightloss journey. But I wanted to share with you my errors....


So I went to bed at 7 this morning! Yes, 7am! I hung out with a old friend and was to lazy to drive home but not in the mood for any of his attempts of hanky panky (lol). So we just chilled and talked until he tried to get me to sleep over then I decided to bounce.

Anywho.....
I woke up around 12 something and ate a bowl of Cheerios. Ate it with 2% milk. So the waking up late part wasn't a good start, but I thought eating only one bowl was somewhat of a reprieve. So I got worse as the day progressed:-(

I went to the mall and ate a footlong meatball marinara sub with baked barbeque chips and a medium drink (which nowadays is large). To end the night, I ate an Arby's turkey and swiss sandwich with curly fries and 4 mozz cheese sticks.

I know, I know.
I did everything against doing well on starting my weightloss, but hopefully it will get better. Tomorrow I plan to workout and we will see what happens when I finally weigh myself for the first time in months.


Thanx for checkin' me out, stay tuned;-)

Weight Loss Tracking

Hey!

So I am trying to lose weight before my "friend" returns back from Iraq. I am going to post my weight loss journey on here along with my other posts. From the things I've ate to workouts, all will be shared. This is my last year of undergrad (hopefully) and I want to be in shape by graduation as well as get my hair to be more healthy (yes, working out helps promote hair growth). So follow me on this LOOOOOOOOOOOONG journey. I'm like many women, trying to balance every day stresses of life (3 jobs, full-time student, etc) and be able to squeeze into my jeans in the morning.

Check out my youtube channel to see the visuals of my weightloss journey:

China Glaze Lover on a Budget

So I found this site that sales great nail polishes for low prices. Check out video for my experience:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wF3K9-GZNcg

Anywho....
They have China Glaze for as low as $2.68 (a few are a bit more). Here is the site:
http://www.8ty8beauty.com/

Now if you want a cheaper nail polish and don't want to order offline, I suggest Pure Ice or Milani. Both are great nail polishes and don't easily chip. Milani you can get from a drugstore or a mom/pop beauty supply (anywhere that sales Milani cosmetics). Pure Ice is made by Bari Cosmetics but you can get them at Walmart for $2. (Milani prices vary)

Here is the Bari Cosmetics website, but I don't suggest you buy from the site because the nail polishes are more than 6 dollars (more than China Glaze at Sally's Beauty Supply). Just check out the colors if you are curious.

FYI......China Glaze is the sister company to OPI.

Check it out and follow my blog! MUAH!

Weightloss Tips

Weight loss tips that don't involve a pill, excercise, or counting calories (at least not really)

-Don’t eat while watching television: t.v. viewing can make you take in 40% more calories than you normally would

-Do something that will distract you when a craving hits: call a friend, listen to music, whatever will distract you for five minutes (the length of time a craving typically lasts)

-Eat a carb/protein rich breakfast. It will keep blood-sugar levels steady and hunger pangs at bay.

-Eating early in the day keeps us from "starvation eating" later on. But it also jump-starts your metabolism. When you don't eat breakfast, you're actually fasting for 15 to 20 hours, so you're not producing the enzymes needed to metabolize fat to lose weight.

Ask yourself....
-Am I hungry? (If unsure, wait 20 minutes and ask yourself again)
-When was the last time I ate? (If it's less than three hours, it may not be real hunger)
-Could a small snack tide me over until the next meal? (Have ready-to-eat fruits or vegetables on hand for this)

-Snacking between meals is okay. But do it smartly. Satisfying a craving with HEALTHY grubbing is better than binge eating on junk-food
-stick of string cheese
-tablespoon of peanut butter on a piece of fruit
-handful of nuts

-Cut back on the alcohol. They contain hundreds of calories that only increase your hunger. If you need a drink, stick with a glass of wine, light bear or vodka. These drinks usually have about 100 calories per serving.

-Eat fruit twice a day. Fruit has no fat and mostly water. It’s fill you up while leaving less room for you stomach. Plus contains healthy fiber (good for cleaning out your digestive system)

-Get plenty of sleep. Well rested people are less prone to snacking out of fatigue or stress.

-If you drink whole milk, switch to 2% milk. I did it awhile back, there is no drastic difference in taste (in my opinion). Soon whole milk will seem to thick, well it did for me;-)

Summer Flashbacks

It is summer time and in my small (school) town it is slower than usual. Most of the students have gone back home, and the days become repetitive. But it is funny how boredom brings back the past and brings forth dumbasses.


Every summer since I graduated high school, it seems like ex-boyfriends and old hookups suddenly remember my number. Guys who I may not have spoken to in years, they cheated on me, I dumped them (in the harshes way possible), or I thought were dead.


But it is not the fact that they randomly call or text (or send me facebook/myspace messages), it is the fact that they all of a sudden they feel the need to confess their love for me or they want to get back together. The worst ones are the guys I knew very little about (never dated or did anything with them) want to suddenly hangout.


Hangout=fuck


That annoys me! Like we NEVER hungout before and now you want to all of a sudden when the town is empty? Give me a break! Just say you want to fuck, it won't happen but I will respect you a little for being honest.


The one thing good that comes from school starting is all the new prey (and old hoes) for these triflin', lying males. That way I can find a guy who wants me for me AND my coochie. LOL!


But seriously.......there is a reason you didn't make it to someone's present and why you never hung out in the past.



JUST A THOUGHT;-)

Condoms and a School of Hoes


So the college I go to has a bit of a high STD rate.........LOVE IT!


But seriously, it seems like this simple fact has become common knowledge amongst the students. However, everytime I check my facebook, another girl is rockin' that 9 month bump. To add to it, most of them are single.


Now, if STDs don't scare you why not a young pregnacy? I mean damn.....if you aren't on birth control pills, use a fuckin' condom. Hell, Trojan has made that new ecstasy condom and they (almost) feel like nothing is there.


I ain't knockin' girls who have babies young, but a lot of them are the ones who are the most sheltered or just plain stupid.


I have a few friends that have had kids since college started and have transitioned into adulthood and handled their business. I can respect that, but I can't get with the dumbasses who party and drink and leave their kids with ANYONE who will watch them.


O well.......it is what it is. This school has too many diseased dicks and coochies running around for me for me not to have a dude strap up (even if I am on the pill).



LOL! JUST A THOUGHT;-)
