Have you ever been in love?

Falling in love with yourself is probably one of the best things anyone could ever do. ;)

Next month is the year anniversary of dukan for me and I am overjoyed by how much I love life!  I love it all! The ups, the downs, the sideways because somehow I have learned that it is all equally important and keeps balance in my life.

I feel like I'm just learning who I am for the first time and I realized that I can now say something I never quite understood when others would say it:
I love me!

With unconditional love that is. I have always liked who I am, my dorky, over the top, silly self. But there were days I would look in the mirror and be so dang hard on myself. Why would I treat others better than myself? Why would I say some of the nastiest things about my body?

I realized that no matter where I am in my journey, I love me. Deeply. Fully. Truly. And that makes the ride SOOO much more enjoyable. I can't stop smiling. :)

I hope you all have a great holiday weekend! I love yall!

Oh! P.S. I made a video yesterday that is up on youtube. I'll post it below. Muah! <3

It's A New Day...

Hey Friends!

So as of two days ago I officially signed up for the Dr. Oz Transformation Nation Million Dollar You challenge! And I am OVER THE MOON excited! 

I'm a little (a lot) late into the game, seeing how there are only FOUR more days to sign up, but better late than never right?

Check out the link below to find out more information about it! Just because there are only four days left doesnt mean YOU shouldn't sign up! :)

Im really excited to jumpstart my weight loss again and rep the Dukan Diet!

Ever since my grandma got sick, I haven't been able to put my best foot forward in my weight loss journey, and since she passed away last month I feel as if I am now able to refocus. I know that's what she would want me to do. 

I joined a gym with my papa who is also doing the challenge, and it's a great bonding thing for us to do! Our workouts have been great so far and he is down a ton of weight! I'm so proud! :) 

Well...I'm off to do some pilates and clean and such...I'll talk to yall later!

Peace and love! :)

Food Menu for today!

Had a tonnnnn of food today! Trying to up my breakfasts so I'm not as hungry during the day. It seems that I was still hungry today, even with the big breakfast!

Today I had:

Breakfast- 2 egg omelet, bacon slice, and oat bran 'grits'. With a large cup of chai tea latte. 

Lunch - Ground turkey with ff sour cream on two of Sonia's 'pita chips' yumm!

Snack - chicken thigh

Dinner - hamburger and greek yogurt.

Holy moly am I stuffed! 


Perhaps if I get hungry later I'll make crepes...just one of those days ha! Thank God that Dukan is 'all you can eat' otherwise I would be starving.  :) ♥

I recalculated my true weight again to see my 'graph' and in four months I should be at my true weight. That will be a complete year about...AH! So excited! Time flies when you're dropping pounds :) <3

Love yall!

PHOTO: Same Pants, Different Body :)

Oy! I sure was stretching those gray pants out in the first picture. They are exactly the same pants in the second...

I looked so short when I was bigger!

I'm slowly starting to feel slim. I still have a ways to go but still..

Dukan diet and Slip ups :(

As some of you know, last week my family was hit with a big tragedy, not only did my grandma pass away, but the day after my aunt passed as well. 

I lost my footing...I went to bad foods for 5 days! EEEKKK! not cool!

So here's the video of how I got back on track and WHY I got back on track.

I just want yall all to know, life happens, but you don't have to let the world push you around, you get to push back!

Peace and love :)

This is gonna be a long week....

Hey Friends :)

So my grandma passed away yesterday...what an emotional time. Yesterday my eating went to the trash. I didn't really eat during the day but my dinner was BAD. VERY BAD.

Dukan no no's indeed.

But I didn't beat myself up about it. I just woke up and got back on track. I know my grandma would want me to be as healthy as possible. 

I just got my 30 minute run in, which made me feel a lot better. But I have to remind myself to eat every few hours or else I just..don't. I'm just now eating's 1:50pm. Oy! No bueno. 

I'm not giving up. I will reach my true weight and be the best me I can be.

This ones for you grandma! Love you! <3 <3
