Change

Hey hey everyone!!
I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays. I know I haven’t blogged in awhile. (and If anyone is curious, my vacation trip was aaahhmaaziiing haha.)
I just got a little busy and felt unmotivated to blog (or do much of anything, honestly). I’m going to be working on a whole new look for my blog and get back to making posts again really soon. And just in time for the new years, right!? (Ya know, the whole new year new look thing? Pf..) Rest assured, *I* will still be the same though. >:)

Until then….

Happy Holidays!

June 2013 Squats Challenege + My workout Calendar

Hey people!
What’s going on!?

I’ve gotten so interested and distracted by fitness related things, sorry for the lack of posts. I do have some in the works, I’ve just been lazy about it.

But anyway, before I post this months Squats Challenge, I just want to say I kind of don’t do them any more. Don’t get me wrong, squats are great- Buuuuuut, the workouts I’m doing now pretty much incorporate a lot of squatting exercises in them AND weights, so I’m over the challenges. If you want to stick to the Squat Challenge, good luck, I’m still rooting for you! :D And if you’d like to try out what I’m doing… Good luck! Hahahaha!!

Make sure you are eating right. I was complaining to myself about how I wasn’t seeing the results I wanted from Insanity (1 week left!! thank goodness- am debating on starting another round or going into P90x), and that reason is my fault for not eating properly the first month. I was still occasionally eating a lot of junk, basically whatever I wanted. I immediately changed that the 2nd month. I even stopped drinking alcohol. x__x
I eat lots of grilled or baked chicken/fish, hella vegetables and fruits, egg whites, oatmeal, TONS of water, and fruit/veggie smoothies. Yep, it’s all I eat/drink now. (Occasionally I’ll have a protein bar- I can’t afford protein shakes yet, and I can’t use my dad’s- it’s specially made for people with diabetes *sigh*)

And I’ve been going to bed on time now. 10 PM-ish, waking up at 5 AM-ish to run on my treadmill or neighborhood. You get so much more done when you wake up early. o_o

One more thing……. I’m not a freakin’ fitness instructor or anything like that. Consult your physician/speak to a professional fitness instructor before attempting these exercises. I’m merely sharing what *I* do and tips on what MIGHT work for you too.

Outfit of the Day: 4/20/2013

4/20 didn’t go as planned…

It was to head to Candler Park to enjoy the SweetWater 420 Festival, but yeah… it was just a mess.
Which was sort of expected, but at the same time… Damn!

Traffic out the ass, trying to find parking took at least an hour, then when we finally walked over to the park we were hit with this long ass line that curved and swerved to who knows where. I couldn’t tell where it stopped!
So I ended up just saying, “Fuck it.”

My friend and I left and hung out around Agnes Scott College/Downtown Decatur for a bit, got some food, then went home (I was better off staying home ;) I still celebrated hehe). Aside from things not going according to plan… At least I still looked cute. Hah!!

I’ve had this dress for…. maybe 4/5 years? This was my first time wearing it because… I just wasn’t sure HOW to wear it.
It looked weird and humpty dumpty on me (maybe I’m just too use to form fitting clothes?) and none of the shoes I had matched. But, I put a belt around the waist and just put on some brown boots (I almost wore brown cowboy boots??? Maybe it’s good that I didn’t hehe) And voila. I think I looked good. :)
