Are You Alive?!?

Yes. Haha, I am still here. I know its been awhile since I last posted, but I am up and ready to share my story and move forward with my life. The past few months have been a little rough to say the least. I am hangin' in there and I am ready to start blogging about the new adventures in my life. I'm sorry for being M.I.A.

DAY ONE: WARRIOR DASH

Today is day 1 of 109.. I am training for a run/obstacle course called Warrior Dash at the end of April and I thought I would document the entire process. So here's to day one!

Since I haven't been very active for like the past month I wanted to take things really slow. It's been perfect weather out here so I decided to run outside. I walk/ran for about 30 minutes around my local park and than I did some simple 'boot camp' style drills like brupees, suicides, push ups, and sit-ups to finish things up.

As far as my diet today, I started off eating clean, but than I was rushed and not on top of things so I ate a few bad meals too. Haha..

Breakfast: egg whites and oatmeal

Snack: apple

Lunch: sonic.. enough said haha.

Dinner: chicken noodle soup

Ehh, so it wasn't the worst day, but it wasn't the greatest either haha. I just had to get through day one!

I hope everyone had an amazing new year!

Blogging Break.

I know I haven't been blogging much this week, I've been crazy busy. I'm taking this math course and it's the last class I need to take before recieving my Associates..YAY, but I totally suck at math so it's been really hard for me and I have to study, study, study like mad! Also, I've  been doing a lot of 'fall' cleaning and organzing before the holidays so all I have to do is focus on my schooling and cooking for the holidays. My family is coming to visit for Thanksgiving and they'll be here on Tuesday for a whole week!

Again, I'm sorry I haven't been blogging and I won't be blogging much for the next week or two. As soon as things get settled and I'm back on track I'll be back to blogging!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and holiday break!

Now You Know Me.

It's time to for another round of 'Now You Know Me'. If your new, here's how you play. Every Monday, I am going to answer eight random questions so you guys can get to know me better. All I ask is that you answer the questions as well! Either put your answers in the comments or link your post answering these questions in the comments so I can get to know you guys better too! So let's jump in...

The Questions
1. If you had $500,000,000 to spend on plastic surgery, what would you have done?
2. Do you watch soap operas? If so, what is your favorite and why?
3. Favorite clothing brand?
4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?
5. Would you ever vajazzie?
6. Favorite disney princess?
7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?
8. Have you ever broken any bones? If so, which ones?

The Answers

1. If you had $500,000,000 to spend on plastic surgery, what would you have done?
I could have a billion dollars, but if I don't need any plastic surgery I'm not going to get it done. I am a firm believer though in the 'Mommy Makeover'. 

2. Do you watch soap operas? If so, what is your favorite and why?
No I don't watch any, but I do watch Beverly Hills, 90210 on the Soap Network.

3. Favorite clothing brand?
This is a tough one because I don't really buy clothes based on brands. I do a lot of my shopping at Ross and they have all kinds of brands so I don't really have a favorite brand. Well, I do usually wear only Abercrombie jeans because I find they fit me the best.

4. An afternoon shopping spree at your favorite store or maid service for a year?
Definitely a shopping spree, I don't mind cleaning!

5. Would you ever vajazzie?
No way, not my style. Haha.

6. Favorite disney princess?
It's a toss up between Princess Jasmine and Belle.

7. Last movie that made you bawl your eyes out?
Hmm, I think I cried when I watched When Harry Met Sally the other week.

8. Have you ever broken any bones? If so, which ones?
I've never fully broken a bone, but I did crack my wrist snowboarding one time.

The Perfect Imperfections Tag

I've seen two YouTube beauty gurus, QueenBeeuty and Andrea's Choice do this tag and I thought this was such a good idea. No one's perfect and I know everyone has those crazy flaws about themselves that no one else seems to see. I know I do. In this tag I am going to tell you three flaws that I hate and than follow up with three things I really like about myself. I wasn't sure how I wanted to go about this tag, focusing on the physical flaws I see or the personality flaws. While I have physical insecurities I know that looks isn't always what it's about. So I thought I would break it into two sections, one physical and one personality. 

PHYSICAL FLAWS...UGH!

1. My Man Hands! Go ahead and laugh but my hands are not girly at all. My fingers are short, my nail beds are short and wide, my knuckles are very wrinkly. I just totally dislike my hands so much!

2. Sicilian Hair! I have very dark, coarse hair on my arms and legs. If I don't wax or shave regularly than I would look like a gorilla, haha.

3. Right Eye! My right is more droopy, and a borderline lazy eye. Everything about my right is off. My eyebrow arch isn't as high as my left, my eyelid sags a little more, etc.

PHYSICAL LIKES...YAY!

1. Dark Olive Skin Tone! Yay for always having a perfect tan!

2. Great Assets! I am very pleased with my chest and booty size.

3. Muscle Tone! I love how I have a athletic body type without being too muscle-ee.

PERSONALITY FLAWS...UGH!

1. Jealousy Issues. I do not like how jealous I can get, it doesn't even have to be over a relationship.

2. Insecure. I am uber insecure. I wish I were more independent, brave, etc.

3. Needy. I am a very needy person. I have not excepted that it is okay to be alone.

PERSONALITY LIKES...YAY!

1. Girl Meets Boy. I love that I can be relaxed and hang with the boys, not afriad to get dirty, but that I also like getting dressed up, wearing cute clothes. I like to say that I'm the first to get into the mud pen but I'll be wearing my heels!

2. Caring. I think I am a really caring person. I will always put others before my self because making someone else happy makes me happy.

3. Organized Freak. I love that I am very organized!

iPod Loves.

I was going to blog about what music has been being played over and over on my iPod, but I kind of already talked about that in my Four. blog post so I thought I would do something a little different and tell you guys what is on my cleaning mix. 

When I clean I love to put some good tunes on to keep my mind off of the work I am doing. I listen to a little bit of everything; ballads, rock, hip-hop, love songs, etc. So here is what is on my 'Cleaning Playlist'.

1. I Never Told You by Colbie Cailat
2. Shove It by Santigold
3. Don't Trust Me by Tupac
4. Jar Of Hearts by Christina Perry
5. Back Against The Wall by Cage The Elephant
6. Badfish by Sublime
7. Warm Machine by Bush
8. Before It's Too Late by The Goo Goo Dolls
9. Black & Gold by Katy Perry
10. Glory Box by Portishead
11. Here Comes Your Man by The Pixies
12. Beast Of Burden by The Rolling Stones
13. This Woman's Work by Kate Bush
14. Survival Of The Fittest by Mobb Deep
15. Help, I'm Alive by Metric

What do you like to listen to when you clean?
