Hey, girl! I lovee your blog. We share a lot of the same "beliefs" food/exercise wise. I lost 26 pounds my senior year of high school, sort of by accident, I just got obsessed with working out and eating well. I gained a little bit back my freshman year of college. (No more than 5-8 pounds.) Now, I'm trying so hard to lose an extra 10 or so, but it's not coming off as easily. (I think I'm just not working as hard. That was pretty hard to admit even just online...) I love reading your blog for inspiration when I'm having a hard time, or even a good time, with my "journey." Keep up the hard work. You look great!

Thank you! and CONGRATS on losing weight, “sort of by accident” umm what was your secret?  Oh wait… and then I keep reading and see that God Damn, there is no shortcut to losing weight as you were, “obsessed with working out and eating well.” But, seriously congrats!! That’s great, especially the ONLY 5 - 8 pound gain. I gained about 20 pounds my first year of university (I was an eating, sleeping and boozing machine).

Thank you for reading! And thank you for the wonderful compliments.  This journey is taking its sweet time, but knowing people support me makes it that much easier, so sincerely thank you. :)

I just took a yoga class tonight and was wondering if you've ever tried it? It is something I always poo-poo, but then feel really great afterward and then think omg, why am I not doing this every week?! We'll see how long I keep it up, though! ;)

As always, you're a rockstar missy!

I have never tried Yoga. Never. And, what’s this? I have no desire to try it.

Gasp! There I said it!!! Eeeek. Cue everybody’s open mouths,’ shocked looks and quick encouragement for me to get my ass to a yoga studio.  But let me explain: I am very lazy, like, ridiculously lazy, which means when I do find my butt doing some form of non-lazy, physical activity I want to see results for my non-lazy ways asap, and yoga? well… I just can’t see yoga really giving me the results I’d want to see… sure over time it will, I’ll become flexible, toned, sculpted and at one with myself, ect. But still no desire…

O.k, BUT with all that being said my trainer did make me do some yoga moves a few months ago, and I was shocked at how much I enjoyed it… which means if I find my way to a yoga studio I’d be very open minded about it, and most likely enjoy it.

Hey :) This is the first time on your blog, but I've read some of your answers and they are really good! So, please help me out? So there's this guy who has liked me since the beginning of the school year and asked me to the school dance. He's pretty nice, not sure if I should go with him to dance or not. If so, I'd just go with him as friends... Is that ok? There's another one who also liked me since December and I like him too, problem is, my best friend really likes him too. What do I do?

Oh golly gosh, well usually I answer questions about myself, weight food ect., and as I have terribly luck in the boy-relationship-zone I’m not too sure I’m qualified to answer this question, BUT I’ll try…

I’m a big believer in not letting boys come between friends.  It’s happened to me and SUCKS, I’m also a big believer in girls not ‘claiming’ guys until they have a legit reason to do so (aka seeing a guy first and thinking he’s hot does not make him yours).  So… if your friend doesn’t have any real good reason to ‘claim’ the boy you like, go for him, talk to her about it, but go for the guy you actually like (esp if he likes you too). Nobody (aka Nice Guy) likes to be a 2nd choice, so go for the guy you really actually like.  *IF* your friend has a solid reason for liking the other guy, back off…

That’s my two sense… but again, I’ve never been successful in the love depot, so perhaps I got this all wrong…

Why hello there, nice to see you again…

Excellent. I seem to have recovered from the night’s festivities (for the most part), which means this Monday night will be spent with you guys (and The Bachelor)! YAY! I’ve been SO BAD with blogging lately, although I partly blame this on Tumblr being banned at work and my lack of enthusiasm for computers outside of work, but such is life…

Well to be honest, I’m in a wonderful place in my life right now, but so the story goes… when I start to lose weight, life is better… so this should come as no surprise. Losing weight is such an ecstasy, it’s a drug and I’m hooked.  Currently I’m eating more than I ever have, and WEIGH THE LOWEST I HAVE IN MONTHS (woot, woot! Go me!) so everything is coming up Milhouse.

I’m going to answer questions now, in between eating a healthy dinner (see next photo) and making a healthy lunch for tomorrow. God Bless Long weekends, as they are awesome.

I never cease to amaze myself…

Started the night out on a romantic date with Shy Boy, and just got home from The Ex-Crush’s house.

The story between will come later, because now? now I need advil, water and my bed.

Because I have NO self-control I am whitening my teeth right now so I can’t eat. I know, I know… but honestly, I have NO self-control.

Also, pearls on a weekend? Always and forever.

Hi Hi Hi! Yes, I’ve been super MIA on talking about the gym.running.trainers, BUT I got ANOTHER trainer (if you’re keeping track it’s #3), he seems awesome. I start with him on Tuesday. So I’ll post then.

Trainer #2 was TERRIBLE, he had no concept of running, “you do the running think, I’ll help you in the gym,” but that’s not what I wanted…

Anywho, so yes I’ll post about it on Tuesday. Thanks for asking.
