Back To School with Naked!!

So THE TIME HAS COME......*dun dun dun* cues dramatic effect. All summer you've been enjoying your life living it up. Going to beaches, pool parties and bonfires all of the things you look forward to during the summer. Go head take your time because guess what those days are officially over!! That's right OVER I know you don't believe it. All of a sudden before you look up your sitting in class listening to a boring lecture or if your still in high school at your locker dreading to go to that first period class. We have all been there and it sucks!!! So what are you going to do about it. Well your going to suck it up and get NAKED of course. Not literally, Hey put your shirt back on. I'm talking about every girls problem to that horrible first day of school. The only thing that would even make me excited about classes is applying my makeup in the morning and all the compliments to go along with it. I call this back to school feel good!! It's early in the morning you don't want to leave the comforts of your bed well get up you have school. Put some music on to hype you up then take a shower and all that jazz. Now the best part apply your makeup!!

Take that FAT ASS!!

Losing weight is hard!! There is nothing easy about losing weight. I say this to myself everyday, losing weight has always been a struggle for me. I've realized it's only because I've made it a struggle. Don't get me wrong it's no easy task a lot of sweat and tears (literally speaking). Shedding the pounds with patience and consistency it's capable because it seriously takes patience and consistency. No I'm not a health guru I'm just someone who wants to be in the best shape possible. So my week in review went better than last week that's always a plus. I set a goal for myself at the end of the week....guess what??? I accomplished it and let me tell you there's no better feeling. I'm so proud of myself there were times in the last week were I found myself saying I'll workout later, knowing if I didn't do it then it wouldn't get done. Hey I got off my ass and did it and it paid off. I like to measure my waistline, thighs and arms opposed to the scale. See the truth of measuring instead of jumping on the scale is, it tells me no lies I know there's nothing wrong or broke with a measuring tape. The scale on the other hand is like that two faced bitch in high school who smiles in your face but behind your back is making moves on your boyfriend. Yes that my interpretation you can see there's tons of animosity there. So I want whoever reads this in blog land to take away something from this post!! It's hard there will be times when you try to put it off but that little voice in your head tells your better......LISTEN!! It will pay off in the end and then you can say TAKE THAT FAT ASS!!

Well I think I'm brave enough *sigh* time to reveal my weight and my goal weight. I think it's only right I want to be honest with whoever reads this blog and whoever is going through the same struggle as me. I realized I'm not alone thanks to some amazing people I follow on instagram!!! So here goes nothing...I hope you know how hard this is for me!!

My weight when I first started was 183lbs but then I lost 23lbs but I gained 26lbs back!! Which made me 186lbs. When I say this is my heaviest I've been ever it hurts me to my core but it's the truth and a lot of people don't believe me I'm 5'2 by the way.

I currently weigh 180lbs 6lbs down!!
My goal weight 120lbs

I know this will take time and patience be gentle world this is beyond hard for me!! XoXo, t.Marie

No change but neither up or down!!

So I'm proud of myself I kicked ass last week, I surprised myself. My weight has not changed but it hasn't gone back up either which is good for me. I ate breakfast everyday last week with some form of protein before I worked out. I didn't eat super clean but I ate the best I could. Saturday I thought was going to be so hard surrounded by BBQ and junk food at my cousins open house. To my surprise I did really good. I had some strawberries and water on my way there. Also the only thing that I ate was the fruit salad and a spoonful of pasta salad with tons of veggies. Sunday wasn't as great as it could have been I didn't work out. Monday was an amazing start to the week and it continued today. I'm realizing it takes time and one pound at at time is all that matters as long as the fat is shedding!! How was your week or weekend??

Who am I.....Get to know me better

I think this post is due since who ever comes to this blog may want to know who the hell am I. Well for one I'm a college student in the medical field. I recently changed my major from pharmacy to physical therapy. I'm 23 years old I live in Michigan with all it's awesomeness. I love meeting new people I'm a people person but I'll make sure I feel you out first. Meaning I don't just randomly run up to people declaring them to be my friend. I'm a very creative person I love to sing, dance, act basically anything that gets my creativity flowing. I'm also a makeup junkie recently I threw away basically everything and kept the necessities. It was painful but truth is I didn't need all of it. I do miss buying makeup but the whole eating healthy has put a stop to that. Did you know eating healthy is expensive as shit like seriously. I love reality tv the kardashians are my favs but I also dislike them, ok it's a love/hate relationship. I live for snooki and her hot mess personality although she's cooking a bun in the oven and with that comes growth, I love her a little more. Rihanna gives me everything I respect her so much more after her Oprah interview omg Oprah has a way with people and man I see why she's Oprah. My favorite food is of course my moms home cooked goodness but I love Mexican food. I really think I was Mexican in another life I blame my best friend. I feel like all my life I played by the rules. I went to school everyday got awesome grades made it to college and still was well behaved. Met the high school sweetheart didn't work out but for most of my high school life and some college he was my everything. Even met someone who could maybe still be my future husband. All to say I'm still young and I feel like I haven't really lived. I'm the good girl like really the good girl. There's nothing wrong with that at all good girls are fun too. I mean I have done some things that's between me and whoever. Just for the most part I play by the rules. Lately I feel like playing by the rules has gotten me at the door but breaking some rules will get me in. Have any of you ever felt that way. My focus is school though can't wait to walk across the stage. In the meantime I vowed to myself to live a little get to know me better by the end of next year I want to come back and post a blog knowing fully who I am as a person. I truthfully only know who I am as a student, daughter and friend. Who am I as me?? Call this a growing up process maybe. Do you know who you truly are?? Tell me in the comments below!! XoXo, tMarie

It's a Process Day One Reset

Today was better than yesterday because I worked out and started my fasting. I was going to shoot for a week but I'm thinking five days because I have food that needs to be cooked asap. Maybe I'll eat one meal then the rest water and my fasting tea. So far I've just had a cup of tea an water. I completely feel different I'm really energized which helped a lot with my workout. The tea isn't all that great especially without sugar but I just added one spoonful. It's more drinkable for sure. I'm determined to lose the 20lbs I regained. It will be a lot easier once school starts because I won't really be tempted by all the food around me, I tend to go into full focus mode. Also having little time to actually eat helps a lot because I'll have prepared my healthy meals ahead of time. I'm nervous about listing my weight right now but I also feel its a must. I'll sleep on that well I'm drinking my second cup of tea and going to workout after. If anything this tea gives me tons of energy. You should also know to be prepared to go to the bathroom because it works almost immediately. I've seriously spent half my day in the bathroom. What I would do for a "KimKardashianBody". I know I can't have her body but damn it I'm going to get close to it!! Before today I didn't workout for two weeks which I'm glad it wasn't any longer. It wasn't too bad getting back into it. I still feel I need a more Intense workout. I think I might give insanity a try key word MIGHT!! My journey continues!! Any questions leave in the comments below. XoXo, t.Marie

Here we are again!?!?

So I've failed I haven't been working out at all. I made it a week and a half in and things started to get overwhelming. I want to lose weight I know I can...I've done it before. Eating healthy isn't that hard for me but I notice the healthier I eat the more healthy food I want. I'll make a healthy breakfast/dinner but in between I'll eat salad or fruit, then still find myself hungry. It's hard because eating healthy, having that lifestyle is really expensive and let's face it I'm not rolling around in money. I have tons of debt from school not to mention more school. There's a lot going on in my life and being stressed would be an understatement. Lately I been hanging out with friends which includes alcohol and really good food that's hard to past up. I weighed myself this morning and wow I've gained weight instead of losing. Immediately I was crushed and just wanted to give up. Then I realized I didn't even give myself a chance a week in a half is nothing. Even though the scale wasn't changing I have to admit that I feel different I felt energized more relaxed. I'm going to attempt to fasting only for a week. I bought this fasting tea yesterday we shall see how that works out. Also I going to start working out again tomorrow. I can't beat myself up I have to continue to fight to push that way when I reach my goal, it will be worth it. So tomorrow I start again this time I will go further. XoXo, t.Marie
