I know it's been a minute. I always say that I'm going to update this blog as much as I can and I can never find the time to do so. So, so sorry! Like I said before, I have a few rough drafts still waiting to go up but my damn laptop recently caught a virus so I had to reboot. I don't have a program to edit my photos with. I am definitely working on it though. I promise I will make it up to you guys. I was supposed to roll out my skincare posts back in May! I already had it typed out but the photos still needed to be re-sized. My skincare routine has definitely changed since then so I need to update.
For the time being, I thought that I would just update you guys on what the hell is going on in my life and what I've been up to.
LIFE is GOOD! The boyfriend & I are doing great. Way better than we were doing a few months ago. So happy that we got pass all the bullshit. It was tough but we hung in there. The kiddos are doing great! Ms. Jadelyn just made 8 months on the 6th. She can crawl & she can also stand. I'm hoping she'll be walking on her 1st birthday :) She can say simple words like mommy, daddy, mama, papa, and she calls Landon "andon" hahahaha. She's so adorable! It's so amazing to see her grow.
As far as work, I was able to land a full time job at a different hotel. It's a totally new experience from what I'm used to. I was ready for changes in a different department & setting so when the opportunity came along, I took it. New place, new department & bigger & better pay :) What does that mean though? I'll be working 3 jobs. I have a full time job, a part time job and a casual job. Phew. Why 3? Because I love my jobs and co-workers so much that I refuse to quit. And yes, I'll still have time for my family. It's all about work-life balance. RELAX.
Other things that I've been focusing on? Planning baby girl's 1st birthday. Planning parties are so stressful. She'll be 1 years old in 4 months. I need to make sure that everything will be perfect when her party rolls around.
I've also been focusing on working out. It really irritates me that I can't lose the weight as fast as I did before I got pregnant with Jade. I just don't have the time that I used to. I'm just too busy. But I've been making progress! I'm 3 pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight which makes me 13 pounds away from my target weight. I'm also happy to say that I've graduated Insanity about 2 months ago. How exciting is that?! My eating habits have really improved. I'm on the low carb / no rice thang. I'll have a scoop of rice on my cheat day and that's about it. I've been eating a ton of fresh fruit & veggies. I've also gone back to counting calories with my fitness pal. That app really holds me accountable for the things that I eat. It also keeps me in check with working out. I remember that app is what helped me lose 35 lbs in 3 months. Love it! I'm also still debating if I should do my first marathon. I've always wanted to start off with a 5k & there's one coming up at the end of the month but I don't know if my work schedule will allow me to join. If not, there's always next year & that gives me more time to train for it.
That is about it for now. I hope you guys understand! Thank you to all my followers who have stuck around. You guys are truly amazing! I've been so busy that I totally forgot that I've been blogging for a year ^_^ I will definitely throw together a huge giveaway to celebrate my one year anniversary and the upcoming holidays. I went through my stash and found a bunch of things that I had duplicates of last year so I'll be throwing all of that together and more! There's gonna be Sephora stuff, drugstore stuff and even a purse! Stay tuned for details!! I'm putting it together and will probably give it away by late November, early December. I'm still thinking of what other things I should throw in there :) Do yall want some skincare products as well? LMK what you guys would like me to giveaway :)
I need to get some rest. I start my new job tomorrow morning. I'm excited and nervous all at the same time. I don't expect it to be easy but I hope it's not too complicating. I have 4 months to learn all this. I know I can do it, right?!!
Till next time, take care and talk to you guys soon! XOXO.
Keep up with me! Follow me on:
