My Current Weight

Thought I’d put it out there and share with you my weight. I don’t remember exactly my weight number but fairly certain I am 134lbs at the moment. I have some work to do! My midsection is the area that I am most self conscious about so time to try to get rid of that. It’s been 7 years since I’ve really been in shape. Kind of insane how the type flies by. Anyhow thought I’d chit chat with you about my current weight and content I’d like to do for you all!

Dentist Appointment Time! – Wilshire Smile Studio

3/20 – First Appointment

After 3 years, I finally went to the dentist. I know, I know wayyy too long especially since I’m one to be prone to cavities. I’ve always had weak teeth ever since I can remember unfortunately. For my first appointment they took various different xrays (even a panoramic one) and did my molds for my customized teeth whitening trey.

Turns out I have a few cavities and need to do a few crowns. Not that surprising and I am so thankful I don’t have to do any root canals! But what was surprising is that I have a few fillings that were done a bit incorrectly where it’s making it difficult for me floss. Thanks to my past dentist….lol jk but I was always wondering why floss would get stuck so then it’d discourage me to floss!

Natural Deodorant! – Honestly pHresh

I wanted to quickly rave about this product because I use it every day. Over the last year I have been very intrigued with using natural deodorants. I mean why do we want harsh chemicals in that area? I personally use the Bombay Rose roll-on and I love that it’s simple for me to use and isn’t drying. For those looking for an anti-perspirant the roll-ons tend to work best for most but I have also heard the creams do well too. These deodorants aren’t listed as anti-perspirant btw.

The base ingredient is Magnesium which is great for your body. We generally are deficient in Mg so this is an easy to way to get a daily dosage. Magnesium is responsible for over 300 biochemical reactions in our bodies. Obviously very important! There are deodorant sticks and deodorant creams also available however I immediately gravitated to the roll-on since I don’t like touching creams.

When using the roll-on it does take a minute to dry but I really don’t mind. There have only been a few occasions where I felt like I needed to apply a 2nd time but again doesn’t bother me. When it comes to using a deodorant that actually doesn’t contain bad chemicals I’m totally on board.

I have heard that different scents work better for different people so be mindful of that!

Don’t Ever: A Message To My 2016 Ex

He won’t see this since I thought it’d be best to block him on social media so he wouldn’t have a chance of being updated on my life and my feelings. I’m hoping this is another stepping stone to helping me heal as we never had a proper form of closure. I also do know I’m not the only one who goes through this shit in life so herreee ya go.

After my ex before him, I thought ok it’s going to take me awhile to have strong feelings for anyone and I accept that. But this one came along, let’s call him….Dave =P, and it turns out we have a very fiery connection. Exactly what I was looking for. The passion, the laughs, the comfortability, the goofiness, the romance, the attraction, the silliness, family vision, work ethic, and morals were all in line.

Ya know Mr. Big in Sex In The City? He’s kind of like my Mr. Big. I did find myself trying to hold back with my feelings as having my prior relationship end was hard on me and now I feel as if this was just a subconscious game to him to get me to bring my walls down.

To briefly explain, our “relationship” was one of those strange off and on situations from the very start. But we always seemed to connect over and over again because we just couldn’t help it and we kept remaining in each others minds. So I do know part of this is my doing for letting him convince me to keep going back to him.

I wish him well and hope he’s happy. I hope he finds a relationship that is well suited for him even though he convinced me that’s what we had and were going to have lol. Damn.

A message to you, “Dave”:

Protein Shakes & A Foam Roller Workout

IMG_2355Instead of drinking coffee this Monday morning I am drinking a protein shake and heating up some water to make green tea. I also am listening to some Jazz music. Perfect Monday morning start if you ask me. I am pretty excited about my new found motivation to actually get healthy, it’s about freaking time really. Like I’ve mentioned on my other social, the last time I was really in shape was probably 6-7 years ago. So this really is long over-due.Read More

New TJ Maxx Bed Makeover


It’s about time I did a bed makeover! Hendricks ruined my last 2 duvets so now I don’t let him on my bed anymore haha. I really wanted a nice bed to snuggle up in and feel inspired when I wake up in the morning so this was a great change. The total amount I spent on the bed and a few wall decor items was $390 w/ tax included ($235.90 just for the bed items) which I think was a pretty good deal and I purchased everything from TJ Maxx. See below to view the transformation video.Read More
