Please Help Me…

Hey bloggie buddies!!!  I need your help!!!  I want to try to find a new blog design, but the research is killing me softly.  So many designers, so many options.  Do you have any recommendations that are not so costly?  Sistah is on a budget, ya heard??!!??

I have migraines or some sort of headache at least once a week. Now for me this is not a good thing because I'm usually so busy with a lot on my plate. I'm not sure what causes them but when I lost 40 lbs waaaaayyyyy back when I didn't have them so much. Now don't get me wrong, they didn't disappear but they weren't as frequent. Nowadays, I have them more often than not. So I sat down, while in the middle of one, and came up with a headache/migraine graph to try to get to the root cause. Here's what I came up with.

Stress->running around->being tired->pressed for time->eating horribly->pressed for more time->not getting my shit done->stressed because it's not done->tired so I don't cook->eating horribly because I'm stressed,tired,pressed for time cause I'm back-tracking,still not getting my shit done.

There you have it, my headache maze. Something must be done because I can't live like this. Awww shit, my temple is pounding. Bout to OD on some Goody powder :(

Working on some research...

Today was filled with WORK, ugh can't stand it! But it's necessary for life and living. I did do some research today about living a lifestyle that's conducive to a better quality of life. It's true what they say about how we live, eat, and exist and how it relates to our quality of life. So let me roll down my list:

1) I eat like I'm a trash can - I will put anything (almost anything) mostly junk and processes junk.
2) my life as it is right now is a hurricane - I've been hit by it and somehow can't recover. I don't know what having an organized life is like, sad but true.
3) I don't have a regular sleep schedule or bedtime routine.
4) I live a mostly sedentary life - not enough movement for my poor body.
5) I'm a creature of routine and habit - I need some events and memories to live my life to the fullest.
6) I don't have a back up life plan - I'm always crunched for time, money, and other things. I need a life plan and a back up plan.

So, my blog is taking a turn for the better. I will still update my weight loss/get healthy movement. But, I want a better life overall; I'll include you guys on my milestones, set backs and accomplishments.

Stay tuned, Toot is up to something ;)

Just a little bit...

I've noticed the lack if structure and organization in my life and it's trickling down to my kid. This is one of the goals that I want to work toward for the Summer Loving Challenge. It affects all aspects of our lives, can't function in chaos why do I feel like I can make it work. It's bad y'all; can't find my clothes, Tupperware containers, organize my meals, find my mail or get my couponing shit down good. Subsequently I feel like it's hindering my weight loss progress. So here I am trying to put a little structure in our lives.

First things first; organize the clothes in our apartment. Its going to be hard because space is extremely limited but that is something I've got to get done.

Just a quick picture of my lunch today. It was a Lean Cuisine Sesame Stirfry and it was pretty good. I really enjoyed it.

OAN, 55 minutes of Turbo Jam tonight! Let's see if I survive, lol!

Happy it's Thursday!

Hey everyone! Just a quick post for my food log today. Hopefully I can stick with the plan.

Grits with cheese and maybe some bacon (hey, I'm a southern girl give me some time to get this outta my system)

OhYeah protein mixed with water before Turbo Fire

Lean cuisine stirfry sesame chicken

Big ole salad with chicken breast

Turbo Fire 40 mins

I'll leave you with a picture of someone that's on my mind like whoa today! I miss him dearly :(

Hey everyone!!! I hope you are having a great Wednesday. I'm doing much better today than yesterday, my head was hurting like a MF!!!
Anywho, I upped my eats today and I did okay. Not amazing but I'm working on it.
Breakfast was a runny breakfast taco

Lunch was a salad with horrible dressing. If you all have a good recipe for salad dressing please let me know

sweet ass watermelon for a snack

Then I went to Nutrition Warehouse and got some protein powder. My trainer advised me to get one. They gave me a sample of OhYeah protein too. I'll do a review soon.

I'm going to leave you with my fortune cookie messages. I hope they come true!!!

Summer Loving Challenge

Hey all!!!!! Here I am, finally able to sit down, concentrate and update my poor blog. 

The summer loving challenge has started and I’m participating!!!!  It’s been more of a mind thing than anything else.  I know what I need to do, but mentally it’s a little harder.

1. Goal 1 – Logging food in Calorie King food journal… I actually found that this is the hardest because I’m an all or nothing kind of girl.  I want exactness and if I can’t estimate the nutritional values to the tee, I don’t want to include them in my journal.  I know, I know it’s lame as hell!  I’m working on that

2. Goal 2 – organizing my space and mind…this is going nicely.  My pile of laundry has been slowly shrinking and I will start working on trading winter clothes for summer clothes slowly next week.  Little by little is better for me.

3. Goal 3 – Zumba-thon at my crib…yeah, so that hasn’t been going so well, but I’ve officially started a countdown so see the next blog for that one!

4. Goal 4 – Finding my sexy…that’s been going a little slowly because right now I’m trying to find my level of comfort in my own skin and i think that the hardest.  I’ve been fat and sloppy, lol, for so long this is going to be a big hurdle to cross. 

I will weigh in on Wednesday and post that soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
