::autumnal:bliss::



Fuzzy feelings are starting to come up for me...
Which could only mean...
THAT AUTUMN IS AROUND THE CORNER!! 
Yes, that's right. If you know me well, you know that I am obsessed with Fall...and not in your typical "first world problem white girl with the thigh high boots and pumpkin spiced latte in hand" sorta way...but more in the...actually, why don't we make a list? I am loving listography (if that even a word?!) so...I'll tell you what it is about Fall that I am absolutely in love with...
Because to tell you the truth, it never used to be my favorite season. I would always choose Spring or Summer over Fall or Winter any day. But now, I just love everything about it and look forward to it like craaaazy!
This list is in no particular order.

I wrote this over the weekend...on my phone....and since I'm trying to blog more decided that I can't not share...so here it is. More posts to come! :)

Two more days of vacation left. Sigh. How depressing that can be! I mean, I am happy to get back into my regular routine but how blissful it was to be able to do whatever I wanted!
Travis and I were both able to rest and relax together. That meant a lot of beach time, gaming and gym! Yes! We went to the gym every day! Sometimes as early as 6:30! I think we missed one gym day out of 14 days so far. But we definitely feel great for it! I also had my first cheat meal in a while yesterday which was ice cream. Nomnom. But....it's back to reality. It's the weekend after all and there has to be a tun of laundry and meal prep for the next 48 hours.
I also decided that today I am going to measure myself. My body that is.
I have a confession to make.
I weigh myself daily.
Every. Single. Day.

::*::back:at:it::*::

No point in making up excuses. It's been FOREVER! But LOTS has been going on...lots o lots o lots. 
I've pretty much gotten to my goal of 125lbs. That was my goal...but there is more to go...which makes that a total of 37lbs that I've lost from October/November ish to about March...I've been maintaining 125-130 between April until now, I believe. I'm trying to build up muscle and eat healthy but I've sorta fallen off the wagon. My eating has become a tad disordered, so I'm really trying to get back on track and trying not to be so hard on myself. 
For example, I ate a shit tun of ice cream yesterday....I weighed in and apparently gained like, 4lbs....am I going to hate on myself for it? Well, I already did...but I've gotten it out of my system {until next weekend?? ugh} and am going to work extra hard this week and not fall {again!!}. But, we are all human...it happens, right? 

I also got my driver's license! This is BIG for me...since I'm 30 now and just recently began driving...so it's week 3 now of driving on my own after passing my driver's test on the 3rd of June ({woot woot!} and it's going well so far...but I don't want to jinx anything. LOL. 

Anyways...since I am just getting back into the swing of things, I figured we would do a little questionnaire or survey type thing, just to make things fun and light....I have tried a bunch of recipes the last little while that I needed to share with you guys, book reviews and much much more! I figure too that I will share some of my meal plans and prep and workouts as well. :) More posts on goals that I've working towards and a slew of other things....a new development too...makeup! I've become obsessed all over again when my sister recently got me some awesome NYX stuff for my birthday. So be on the lookout for reviews on that as well. :)

::*::an:update::*::

It has been far too long little blog!! 
I barely even have enough time to myself! Let alone post on here, which I feel terribly guilty about - I usually do.
But the last few months have gone by so quickly - and so much has gone on...little and big. 
First of all...we've moved! Yup! It took the perfect townhouse for us to move...and you know how they say tha tsometimes you gotta take that chance? Well, we did...and couldn't be happier! I really do love our new place and I remember second-guessing my decision in the months leading up to the move...wondering if I would be happy there or not...but I am. And I am super glad that we did.
The puppies are loving it too. ;) And of course, so is my man. :)
Other then that, I have begun driving! I know I know...29 years old and not driving! I held myself back for all these years...driving isn't so bad....it's still hella nerve-wracking but I've probably driven a total of 5 times. I am so glad too that my driving instructor pushed me to go onto busier streets...or else I would still be going around in circles in parking lots and that's SO boring! So...I've been driving around...but it's sorta at a stand-still at times becuase we own a manual vehicle and I don't geel comfortable driving manual at this point. This weekend we are hoping to find a deal to rent an automatic vehicle so that I can drive. :) Pretty good plan, I think 
I will also need to book my road test pretty soon and then when I pass (not if! lol) then I will be able to drive on my own. So I am looking forward to that...I am still very nervous when I get behind the wheel, but I do know that with practice it will get better. Many people tell me it is life-changing...I certainly hope it is! Lol. :P 
I also have a bunch of goals and plans for the remainder of this year. It feels like I am at a stand-still even though I got a lot on the go. But that will all change and I am definitely eager for the warmer weather and trying new things and seeing more places. :) 
I will be sure to keep you all posted on what is going on along with some pictures. :) There are a lot of recipes that I will be needing to share with you too. 

So that is just my little update! More thorough updates to come! ;)

We arrrreeee moving!! 
Did I already mention that before? Well...I'm telling you again if I already did. T-minus 5 days! I was very excited in the beginning...lost interest, got stressed out, and now I am excited all over again! 
Overall, things have been going really well! 
Since I am obsessed with this lists thing I am going to list all the new things going on with me since the beginning of January!
1. I lost 30+ pounds! 
Yes...that's right...thirty pounds is a heck of a lot! But it had to be done...I am feeling lots better for it, but it's not to say that I still have many more goals. 
Which leads me to also being...
2. A heck of a lot stronger!
I can do 15 burpee's in a row! I remember back in August when I started going to the gym and going to classes that I could barely....BARELY do 3-5 in a row...let alone 15!! They're freakin' hard! Not only that but I can do 10 legit push-ups...I can left a lot more. I can squat til the cows come home and even do some with weights..I can also leg press 210lbs! My heaviest back in the day was 135lbs! 
3. I still have a pooch, but I ain't letting it slow me down. 
4. I am a registered holistic nutritionist!
5. I drove! I actually drove around with my bestie today! I did my driver's training classes and now just need to get behind a wheel. 
6. We are moving!
7. I am a lot busier at work and movin' on up! I'm not going to get into too many details on that because it probably wouldn't interest any of you, but this is something I definitely am optimistic about. 

So yea! It's been soooo busy....packing is pretty much all done...just need to do some moving this Thursday....and Friday! And then we have a long weekend...and I'll be taking some time off work as well to unpack and settle in {especially help the babies settle in}. 
Oh and my 30th birthday is coming up! How crazy!?! 
Yes, LOTS going on....
Lot's to look forward to! 

That's my update!

::*::52 Lists::*::


People say that moving is one of the most stressful times in one's life that one has to undergo. I guess it's only as stressful as you make it for yourself, am I right? What if you move a gajillion times?!
So far, the stress is at a minimum but it's possible that that is because I'm not allowing it to get to the point where I might lose my freakin' mind. 
I used to do that a lot...I had the tendency to magnify minute problems into gargantuan ones. 
I don't think I wasn't bored as much as I didn't have the means necessary to just deal with life's problems all that well at the time.
