The most important thing I realized is that painful breakups, unrequited love, shitty jobs and the like help us to BUILD CHARACTER and that no matter how bad it feels, we are much better off because of it. Sometimes you have to stand alone to make sure you can. Forget what you want to remember what you deserve.You may not end up where you thought you'd be, but you'll always end up where you were meant to be. You can either let these bad things, define you, destroy you or strengthen you. Fight through it like a warrior. Greater things are to come.

Beast Mode: Spring & Summer Edition

Summer is quickly approaching and i REALLY need to buckle down and freaking get back into my beast mode regime that i started last summer that i sadly, failed to keep up as the winter months approached. I felt i could get away with wearing large shirts and black tights all season. Now the season to wear dresses and no tights is fast approaching thus the need to lose my huge middle area because face it- people judge you no matter what people say.

See. Gerard butler totally judging. lol TRUEEE SAYYYY.

Things to do and change up!

  • Gym, gym, gyM
    A no brainer. Start up with weight training again, continue w/ combat, do more cardio inbetween, attend a new class and throw in kickboxing/Muay Thai again.
  • Hot Yoga
    Cousin and i were discussing whether this actually helped or not. I was a bit on the fence but she was convinced that it did help with the toning and weight loss last summer. Perhaps its a placebo effect but im sold lol I want to start up again with the cheap classes. lol
  • Drink water and green-tea like a fish
    Okay maybe not a fish because i don't know if fishes drink the water they swim in....bahahha. But the idea is there. 
  • Eat out MAX, three times a week
    Not only am i noticing myself eating out ALOT, but it's also become expensive too. Since i am on a bit of a budget at the moment, this SHOULD help the wallet and waistline. 
  • Drink three times a week
    This is a BIT harder because i drink......almost every other night (AT MOST, NOT EVERY WEEK). The fact that i dont really mind the taste of beer anymore (ewww yucky. i converted. sorta. i knowwwwww. bleh)....doesn't really help the cause. I also drink socially for futbol, dinners, parties and for no reason at all. i'm going to try. Wish me good luck on this one. 
  • Going to REALLY try it with the veggies this summer....
    Enough said. I should. Before i lose friends because i am such a weirdo.
  • When at Starbucks-
    • Allowed to have a yummy SB pastry only once a week 
    • Allowed to have a relatively creamy-sb drink once every 2 weeks but stick to non-milk beverages. Avoid cream (liquid. Not whip. I've always said no to whip).
Moderation is key! I know i can do this because i did it last summer!!!

On a completely random note:
I am currently debating whether if i should spend a bit of my tax return money on an ipod that has more space (only 2 gigs), sync's (it just stopped one day), locks (because of the next point) and doesn't have a metal piece sticking out of the top (which interfers with where the lock button is). AKA, a new one.

errrrr i don't have 27 songs on the ipod. it's actually just a playlist that has 27 songs for those wondering lol

Absolute fail yo. In my own defense though..........i didddddd have it and used it religiously almost every day for the past 3.5 years. Okay fine, its still a fail. Along with the fact i accidentally swallowed some cleanser as i was washing my face earlier tonight. I'm uber cool aren't i.
