A life update: school, jobs, weight-loss, etc.

I haven't posted anything in months. I'm alive. I still love makeup.
BUT I am one busy girl.
This semester marks my LAST semester of grad school. If I pass all of my classes I will be walking across the stage on May 3, 2014 with a fake diploma in hand. Exactly a week later I'll be turning 25 and running a 4 mile race.
Running? Excuse me? Yep. One of my goals for 2014 is to finally be healthy and shed all those pounds that have been holding me back from living a healthy life. So far I'm 18 pounds down! I've completed one 5K race, am running another one next Saturday, then a four mile race in May. I have been doing a couple of things to lose and keep the weight off:
  • Working out daily. I make sure I move in some way whether it's at the gym or walking Munch around our neighborhood.
  • Eating clean 70/30 perfect of the time. Yes, I slip up. Yes, I go out to eat. However, my food preferences are changing.
  • Keeping myself accountable by posting pictures and updates on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
  • Taking new trusty Advocare products and trying new Advocare products. My next post will be all about Advocare!
As for work I am currently working as a teacher's assistant at a local middle school three days a week, graduate assistant at UTC, and virtual assistant for two bloggers.
Add in being a wife, fur baby mama, friend, and sorority advisor....well my time is limited. However, I am going to try and start blogging at least once a week from now on.
How is everyone?


  1. It's so hard to keep up a proper lifestyle routine with eating and exercising, let alone blogging! Glad to know you're still around. I just started a new blog, love it if you could follow me there:)

  2. Just followed:) Thanks, Alma!
