I failed (in a way)…

So I had challenged myself to workout and fast for about 6 weeks and well I did a great job for a month, then well I kinda I don’t want to say gave up but I stopped. I am sort of disappointed in myself but at the same time I’m ok with it. This was by far the longest challenge I have done and I’m proud of myself to sticking to it for that long. I am however going to start another challenge that will be for 10 weeks on September 8th and I will post about it this coming week.

6 Week Weight loss Challenge.

photo_2019-07-21 21.14.34.jpeg

I have decided to challenge myself to do a weigh loss challenge again now that July is almost over. I’m close to getting to my weight loss goal for July but I decided to extend my goal till August 31. I would now love to be at 260 to 265 if not more by then. I am currently as of yesterday 275; so I will have 10 to 15 pounds to lose in 6 weeks. I listened to the podcast about 75 Hard and I don’t think I can do that one; however, my friend is doing it and she has motivated me to come up with my own version. So for 6 weeks I will be challenging myself to:

  • workout 5 to 7 days a week for minimum of 30 minutes a day.
  • drink about 135 oz of water a day.
  • eat more fruits and veggies.
  • eat less carbs and sugar
  • take progress phots and measurements along with weighing myself once a week.
  • fast for 16 hours or more…minimum 14 if I have to break my fast earlier.
  • read for 15 minutes or more a day (this has nothing to do with my weight loss; however, its good for me mentally and I never have time and love reading so I will be forcing myself to make time now)

Today was my first day and I already have worked out, read a book, fasted, taken my progress photo and I’m almost done with my oz of water for the day.

Blogmas Day 16: if I won the lottery…

2018-12-14 22.27.37.jpg

We all dream about maybe one day winning the lottery don’t we? I know I cannot be the only one… I always try to picture what my life would be like if I actually won the lottery and what I would do with all that money. Well here is what I would do.

  1. I would quit my job.
  2. I would pay off my mom’s house and all her debt.
  3. I would give my mom very good amount of money so that way she doesn’t have to work or worry/stress about money ever again.
  4. I would pay off my mother’s in laws house, debt and give her a good amount of money as well.
  5. I would purchase mine and my husband dream house.
  6. I would pay off all of our debts that we have.
  7. I would take a month long vacation.
  8. I would donate to a few charities of mine and my husbands choice.
  9. I would adopt a few babies.
  10. I would use that money to open a few business to offer jobs to those who didn’t have employment.

What would you do???

Blogmas Day 15: How we met…


Long story short, we met through a friend; his best friend at that time was dating an old high school friend of mine who I no longer was speaking with. But randomly January of 2011 I decided to forgive her and be friends with her and sure enough I met Raul less than a month later thanks to them. I no longer am friends with them but I am forever grateful that they introduced us!  But if you really want to know the drama of it all, we actually recorded a podcast episode on our love story and everything about it in our podcast and you can listen to it here.

Blogmas Day 14: Next vacation…

2018-12-14 22.11.57

Costa Rica was the one place that my husband really wanted to visit and we finally did and we both fell in love with it. Now it is my turn to pick our next big vacation and I think I want to go on a cruise. I love the ocean and I don’t think I get sea sick. I would love to be out in the middle of nowhere (which sounds kinda scary) but just disconnected with the real world, off technology for a while and just seeing new places. I would love to do maybe a mediterranean cruise…have you ever been on a cruise???

Blogmas Day 12: Pet Peeves

2018-12-14 21.54.19

I use to think I didn’t have any pet peeves…oh boy was I wrong! Here are some of my pet peeves:

  • When people only reach out to you when they need something or want to vent!
  • People who change because they are now in a relationship.
  • People who are late.
  • People who invite others to gatherings or dinner that I planned without checking first.
  • People who chew with their mouths open and super loud.
  • People who think they are better than everyone else.
  • People who judge everyone behind their backs.
  • People who make unnecessary comments.
  • People who take forever to reply back to you but you know their on their phone a lot.

Those are just a few haha.

What are some of your pet peeves???
