Who's Your Doppelganger?

It seems as if everyone has joined in on the fun of trying to find out who they most look like! Instead of going to the website, I'll just show you who people said I look like!

Jessica Alba!

People used to tell me all of the time that I looked like her. I even got 2 people that thought I was her. I don't get it as much now-a-days but when I was younger I got it all of the time! I can kind of see that we have similar features, but I'm definitely not as gorgeous as she is!

Next is Shannon Elizabeth!

I don't see the resemblance here. Maybe it's the eyes? Who knows! I've only gotten her a couple times!

Who do you think I look like?!?

Weigh In!!

How's everyone's Sunday going so far?

Mine is going pretty good! ;)

It's time to weigh in!

This week I lost 2 lbs!

I've lost 19.6 lbs and I have .4 lb to go!

Since I only have .4 to go, I'm not going to be as strict as I usually am, but I'm still going to eat healthy. I know that .4 doesn't really make a difference in how I look so that's why I'm not going so hard at it this upcoming week! So I'm basically done! :) 

It's been a great journey!!

Have a great Sunday!! :)

Update! And weight loss.

Can y'all believe that it's mid March already?!

Time is flying by! 

3 years ago today Tony and I said "I love you" to each other. :) 

6 more weeks of this semester of school left! Not including finals.

I'm SO ready for summer break, y'all. You have no idea.

My roommate and I are driving down to Boca Raton, FL in May to visit my grandparents!

I'm SO excited!!!

This past week I had an interview for a nanny position. 

It would be for summer and it would be Mon-Thurs 9-5. If any of y'all are nannys or have been in the past, do you have any tips for me on things I could do with the kids?

There are two kids. The girl is 6 and the boy is 9. The girl is so hyper and very talkative! Ha ha! 

The mother also would be working from home.

A couple people have said that that might suck for me because the kids might always be going to their mother for things or that they might expect me to give them anything they want since their mother is in the house.

I seriously think this summer is going to be sooo much fun and I just want it to start now! 

Now here's my weight loss update:

This week I lost 1.6 lbs!

I've lost 13.2 lbs and I have 6.8 lbs to go! I'm getting closer!! :)

I hope y'all have a great Sunday!

Weigh In

The end of spring break is always hard. 

I really really really don't want to go back to school tomorrow, but I have to! :(

Anyways... here are my stats!

I lost 1.6 lbs this week!

I've lost 11.6 lbs and I have 8.4 lbs to go! 

I'm getting closer and closer! :)

Are there any nannys or former nannys that follow my blog?

I have an interview this week with someone who needs a nanny this summer from end of May to mid August. 

The job would be Monday through Thursday 9-5 and the pay is anywhere from 10-15 dollars an hour. 

Any nannys out there, let me know if you think this is a good deal?


Have a great Sunday! :)

3 years :)

Happy Valentine's Day everyone! :)

Today marks Tony and my 3 year anniversary!

I cannot believe it's been 3 years.

It's seriously been the best 3 years of my life and I can't wait for the next 60 years with him!

I love him SO much and he's my best friend!

3 years ago I never imagined that we would be here and I would be more in love with him now than I was in 2009.

Since he lives 45 min away and he has a ton of homework to do tonight for his MBA, we are going to celebrate this weekend by going out to a nice dinner and exchanging gifts!:)

I hope everyone's Valentine's Day is amazing!

Weigh in Sunday!

Hey y'all! How was everyone's weekend?

Mine was great! Now that I moved 45 min away from Tony, I only get to see him on the weekends (which sucks) so I have something to look forward to during the week!

I have an appointment on Tuesday at 2 PM with my advisor to go over what classes I need to take and when I need to take them because I have officially changed my major to Elementary and Early Childhood Education!! I'm gonna be a teacher!! :)

I have prayed about this a lot because I was just so confused on what major to choose. And I feel like He lead me to this. :)

Also, today is weigh in day!

I lost 2 lbs this week!!!

Now I'm down 5.4 lbs with 14.6 to go!!

Now I'm off to go study! Have a great Sunday everyone!

Weigh-in Sunday!

Hey y'all! How was your week?

Mine was great! Except for the weight loss!

I didn't lose anything this week. I stayed exactly the same! :(

So I'm still only down 3.4 lbs with 16.6 lbs to go!

Of course I'm upset, but I just have to keep truckin' and hopefully this next week I'll pull out a loss! :)

Have a great Sunday!

Y'all. I've been SO confused lately with college.

Right now my plans are becoming an Registered Nurse, but if I don't get into the program, then that can't happen. I applied to the program that starts in the fall and it is SOO competitive! 

I'll probably find out if I got in in a couple months. If I don't get in, I don't know what I'm going to do.

There are a few options I've been thinking of:

A bachelors in Early Childhood Education or transfer to a 2 year school and get a diploma in Practical Nursing and then get a little experience and go back and get a bachelors of science in nursing so I can be an RN.

Or I can do Radiography at the same 2 year school. 

Those are basically the 3 options that I'm considering.

I need y'alls help. Did any of y'all get a diploma in practical nursing or radiography? Or are any of y'all elementary school teachers? I've only heard good things about teaching, there's just a few things holding me back!

I'd love y'alls advice! :D

Weigh-in Sunday!

Hey y'all!

This week I lost 1.2 lbs!

I'll take it! :)

I also lost half an inch off my waist! Success!

I hope y'all have a wonderful Sunday!

Weigh-in Sunday!

So I decided not to do Fit Friday's anymore and just update my weight loss on Sunday's since that is the day I weigh in!

This week I lost 2.2 lbs!

I have 17.8 lbs to go!! :)

Oh, by the way, I've decided I want to lose 20 lbs. When I get to a 15 lb weight losss and decide that I am fine there, then I'll stay there. But for now I want to lose 20 lbs!


Have a great Sunday!!

Fit Friday

If y'all read my last post, I've decided I want to lose some more weight. I want to lose at least 15 lbs MAYBE 20.

If y'all didn't already know, 3 years ago at the end of April I completed my goal of losing 40 lbs.  Then I lost 20 more lbs last April and I want to lose more this year, too. I thought I looked good, but I didn't think I looked great.

This year is the year that I want to get my "dream" body or at least be pretty damn close. In order for me to do that, I have to lose more weight. I want to lose 15-20 lbs.

This year I'm going to lose all of the weight that I think I need to lose. Ultimately, I'd love to lose it by end of March, but if I can just lose it by my birthday (May 8) then I'll be happy!

I'm not going to post my weight or measurements because I'm weird like that, but I may when I reach my goal. ;)

I'm going to eat a low carb, high protein diet and workout 6 days a week. I'm going to do circuit training 4 days a week and sprints 2 days a week. This has worked for me in the past, so I'm going to do it again! My goal is 15 lbs, but once I get closer to it, I may decide to do 5 more to get to 20. I'll def let y'all know!

My weigh-in days are going to be on Sunday's so I'll recap on Friday's what my previous weigh-in was!

Link up with First Name Smith and let's get in shape, y'all! :)

Resolutions/goals for 2012!

In the past I've made resolutions and didn't stick to them.

Last year I made a couple resolutions and I actually stuck to both of them!

This year I have some goals in mind that I want to accomplish:

1) Finally lose all the weight that I want to lose forever (have my dream body), instead of just losing weight and then thinking that I can afford to lose some more, but I'll just do it at a later time.
2) Get a lot of new clothes (after I lose weight). Starting next week I'm going to go through all of my clothes and get rid of clothes that I haven't worn in a year.
3) Go out with my friends more! I feel like in 2011 I didn't make an effort to make more time with my friends.

That's all I can think of. I WILL accomplish these things in 2012!

Happy New Year & Review
