Happy Memorial Day!

I won't pretend to wanna make a big deal out of today. For my own personal reasons, this day brings me a great sense of loss. My two grandfathers and uncle were all veterans and as much as I appreciate what they've done to protect this country, I still miss them all dearly.

I'd like to send a prayer up to each of them and hope they are in a happier place.

Love you all!

Have a blessed and wonderful holiday friends!

I survived!

If you are reading this, it is apparent you have survived "The Rapture" that never occurred.
May 21, 2011 was the official date of the Rapture, according to Biblical scholar and Christian Radio broadcaster, Harold Camping.

So many times these things are predicted to come and we prepare for the end of days. But what happens when the day comes and goes? Are we disappointed because we put so much effort into preparing for the afterlife? Should we just be grateful and move forward until the next rapture prediction?

I, for one, am glad this non-event has come to pass.

Maybe Rad Dudes got it right.
The day was saved, thanks to Macho Man Randy Savage!

Have an exciting week lovelies!

I'm late!

School is winding down and the pressure is on. I am currently, going over missed assignments and handing in the last of what is due.


All that procrastinating has caught up to me but I am doubling down and getting it all done now.

Wish me luck!

Have a great week!

A few tips...

People have been asking for tips on getting in shape. I have a routine I do every year. I start around April to get myself in shape in time for June. The first few days are always the hardest but my motivation keeps me going.

Here are a few tips I learned:

1. Talking more = eating less.
It's good to talk during meals because the more you talk, the less you are eating.

2. Just stop.
It is said that it takes 20 minutes for the body to realize it's full. If you take in lesser portions, you will not overeat. Simple, right?

3. Breakfast.
The most important meal of the day is breakfast. Missing breakfast can cause a slow down in the metabolism, causing the body to slow down the break down of fat which keeps us fat.

4. Weight lifting.
Weight lifting is a great way to burn fat. It burns through the sugar source which is necessary before the body can burn fat.

5. Watch what you eat.
It sounds simple. Stick to the basic food groups. Snacks are difficult to give up but you can at least try eating healthy snacks and do so in moderation. We all know which foods aren't good for us so try cutting them out.

I try to keep it simple. One more thing I have been doing lately is eating fruit after working out. In the past, I would just bathe and crash. My energy would be extremely low and I hated working out. Since snacking on fruit after gives me a little energy boost, it has been beneficial to me.

I hope these little tips are helpful.

Have an amazing week!

Sharing is bittersweet

I am without my laptop for an undetermined period. Two of my girls school issued pcs are down. I really hate sbaring. Lol. I will give you half my food, drink or cash but my tech is not something I wish to divide.

Anyways, I hope to get on and post some info and also update you all on my progress with a photo. I have practicay reached my goal. Yay me!

I am currently on my five inch tablet pc and typing is much too tedious for me. Ah well. Till next time dears.

Have a wonderful week!
