Black Sparkly French Manicure!

Hey All!!!  A couple of weeks ago, I did my nails all up!  Lately, I have been trying different ways to paint my nails.   Some have been a success, while others, quite frankly, a disaster!  Like they say, you learn from making mistakes!  Here is my fabulous Black Sparkly French Mani:
Isn't it pur-teee???
This was pretty simple and quick to do!  All you need to do is first put a coat of clear nail polish on, paint black on the tips and follow that up with silver sparkly nail polish!  Quick, easy, and cute!
Not quite finished!
Just need to add the rest of my silver sparkly nail polish!

Thanks for stopping by:):):)

Until next time!!!!

Day 28-31 : Loving Yourself!

Hey everyone!  Sorry again for not posting hardly anything at all lately!  I just started with Zumba again and I have lots to do at school, on top of all of that I'm taking another Master's I haven't had much time!

I wanted to get in a full 31 Days for :

Most of your journey is about learning to love yourself for who you are and excepting where you are now!  Celebrate the small goals or huge goals that you have accomplished, relish in what you have done everyday, and never forget where you started!

It's really easy to get caught up in the, " If only I could loose 10 more pounds" or "Man, I wish that my stomach was flatter.  So, I'll just do this and that to help it out."

Remember that you have come so far and already lost X amount of pounds. 
 Remember what type of exercise that you couldn't do before and what you can do now!
Remember all of the sweat, tears, and time that you put into this weight loss.
Remember the size that you started out in and the size that you dropped down to!
Remember the great feeling you had when you lost those first 10, 20, 30, 40, or X amount of weight!
Remember that feeling and never forget it!

Because you truly have come a LONG ways and you deserve to celebrate!!
Celebrate the weight you have lost and how far you have come.
Celebrate how good your life is and how much confidence you have in yourself now, to do just about anything!
Celebrate the love you have from your family, friends, and co-workers!
AND most of all
Celebrate to a Happier, and Healthier You!!!

Cheers to a new lifestyle and a different way of looking at life:):):)

Always remember, you can do this, all it takes is the first step and no looking back!!!!

Thanks for stopping by:):):)

Until next time!!!!

Day 27: The Ultimate Question!

In order to have a successful weight loss journey, you need to ask yourself "Why?"  Why have I put myself in this situation?  Why do I turn to food for comfort?  Why, is a very powerful question and one you must figure out in order to keep the weight off.

I have asked myself this many times and I think that I have figured it out, at least for now!  I want to help others out the best that I can and I worry too much(or at least about things that I can't change or control.)  The first thing that has to be done is YOU need to help yourself before you can help others!  YOU need to be happy with your life and happy where you are in it.

This might include a lot of soul searching to figure out how you can change this and how you can go about this.  I believe the "Why" is something that will continue to be a constant question.  It will have to be something that you will need to work on throughout your life time.  It's definitely not easy, but once you come to terms with why you are turning to food then you can change the situation, the way you think about something, or try different things to help you.

So, what are you waiting for?!?!  Get started and ask yourself one question, "Why?"

Until next time!!!!
