It's been what? Three weeks? I'm STILL not over this stupid thing.
It's no longer pneumonia, but it's still pretty bad.

On a brighter note...
I'm down 35lbs now. :) Hopefully by my birthday, I'll be able to be down a total of 45-50lbs. That's 15 more pounds to lose by April 22nd. I seriously need to just start working my butt off again, and just forget about me being sick.
I have a bunch of Advil cold & sinus, and I just need to start taking it. I'm sick and tired (literally) of being stuck in this stupid house, when the weather outside has been amazing! 70-80 degrees(F) for the past week and a half!

OOTD's will be coming back as soon as I get a little bit of money to get me some new clothes. All of my shirts are too big, and my pants are getting there. I'm excited, and mad at the same time. lol

OOTD 03-11-12

Even with the pneumonia, I'm not going to let myself look like complete garbage! You never know when you're going to have to hurry up and get out of bed and go somewhere really quick! It's always best to be prepared. :)

I absolutely LOVE the design around the neck of the shirt. It's super elegant... yet edgy all at the same time. Talk about an odd, yet gorgeous combination!
I never take the ring off because it means a lot to me, so I don't really know if I should show it in my future posts. It's sort of a given.

You can't really see the necklace because of my hair, so I took a photo of it around my hand. It has an extremely long chain on it.

Shirt: Dark Blue Silky Dress shirt with beads & Lace around neck: JC Penney: 40$: L
Pants: Dark Blue Skinny Jeans: Alloy: 25$: 16
Jacket: Faux-Leather Black Jacket: Rainbows: 25$: XL
Shoes: Grey/Tan Leather Sandals/Wedges: Kohls: 100$: 10
Necklace: Antiqued Brass Triple Linked Chain & Cross: Handmade
Ring: Black Flower w/ petals Memorial Ring: Meijer: 50$: sz.7

I didn't really do anything with my makeup today just for the fact that I'm sick and I don't want to contaminate it.
I'll be posting a blog soon showing you what I use to curl/crimp my hair! I've been asked soooo many times, and I can't exactly explain it to you... so I'll just show you. :)

The Dreaded iPhone iOS5 Update

If you don't care about this post, just scroll down. The posts you want to see are below this one.
I, like many other people, have decided to update my iPhone4 to the new iOS5.1. I'm a bit scared to do this though after reading the problems some people have been having. It's just that I haven't updated my phone once since getting it, and I have been starting to see some problems. I figured, the best way to get rid of the problems, is update to the newest iOS.

I spent HOURS backing up my phone... and backing up again and again. I was going to make sure I still had everything after I updated. A lot of people reported losing ALL their contacts, photos, music, apps, and pretty much all data from their phone. It was wiped clean. I couldn't afford for this to happen. I had WAAAYYY too many things on my phone that I just couldn't have removed. The photos of my Grandparents' 50th Wedding Anniversary for one. It was my Grandmothers last happy memory. Everything went downhill from there on. I might upload those photos so you can see them. I keep telling you guys about her, but you still have no idea who she was, or what she looked like. At least this way, when you read my posts about her, you'll be able to put a face to the name.

Unfortunately, things did delete from my phone. Fortunately, I backed everything up SEPARATELY from my itunes.

I can't wait until my contract is up so I can go back to Android. Updates were so much simpler then. Not to mention syncing music and photos... that was a piece of cake. lol

Pneumonia, Pneumonia, Pneumonia!!!

It honestly kills me a little bit inside every time I get sick like this. I work my butt off to lose this weight, and it all gets ruined in an instant. I haven't been able to work out in over a week!! All I've been able to do is lay around and feed my face when dinner is ready... then go back to sleep. :/ I tried walking a couple times, but I could barely make it 3 miles without feeling like I was going to die. It truthfully just seems like God is out to get me these days. Every time I start doing something good for myself, something bad always happens that makes me stop. Every single time I would start working out... BOOM!... I'd get sick. Every time I tried working on some school work... BOOM!... Something would happen to one of my family members that required me to be there for them instead of school (this was over a year ago... but still).

An antibiotic needs to be developed that will allow you to take one or two pills, and then the next day you're better. Yeah... that would be nice. Instead, we're stuck with ones that you have to take up to two weeks, and there's still no guarantee that you'll get better after taking them. Come on smart people! Put your brains together (metaphorically speaking. lol) and get to work! Develop an antibiotic that actually works!

On another note... I FINALLY found my webcam. FINALLY!!! I've been looking for that thing for what seems like ages... and ages, and ages. It was laying on the floor next to my computer... under a pair of pants. SERIOUSLY?!?! It took me months to find something that was RIGHT NEXT to my computer. I'm a moron. Now that I've found it though, hopefully I'll be able to upload some more videos, whether it be makeup tutorials, hauls, or just a random video... I'll be able to do that now.

Long Torso, Long Arms, SHORT Legs...

Does anyone else have this problem?
I started out in life fairly on the shorter side, but that soon changed. I eventually had a major growth spurt, in which I ended up being one of the taller 'kids' in school. But then when I got sick around 12(?), all hell broke loose... so to speak. I quit getting taller... right in the middle of what was supposed to be the growth spurt for my legs! I would go back every other week, and my doctor would measure. I had problems with my legs as a VERY young child, so he was just trying to make sure my legs were growing okay. I also started gaining weight. This was the start of my horrendous weight problem. :/ The 106degree (F) temperature caused my metabolism to completely 'fry', right along with my thyroid... and whatever that thing is in your brain that signals your body to keep growing.
Anyway... as a result of all this, my legs are COMPLETELY disproportionate from the rest of my body. Apparently, I was supposed to be in the 5'8-5'9 range. I'm only 5'3-5'4. :/ My upper body is in proportion with the height that I was supposed to be, where as my legs... not so much. The only way I can make my body look proportional is if I wear my 5'' heels/wedges. They make my about 5'8.
It's so depressing knowing that your body is completely out of proportion because of something that happened to you when you were a child.

Has anyone else had a similar situation as this?

Does anyone else have a similar body type as me? Short legs, but long arms and torso?

I would LOVE to hear how you balance out the body proportion issues, as I've been having a bit of a hard time doing so. :/

30 Day Challenge!!

I've decided to start my 30 day challenge back up again. You can find it in the 'CHALLENGES!' tab on the navigation menu. You can use this challenge to get to know me a little bit more. :) If you are also doing a 30 day challenge, or any other type of challenge, I'd LOVE to follow you and get to know you a bit more as well!!


These challenges are really hard to find in my opinion, but I'm going to keep searching and try to post a new one every 30 days. I'll be adding a 'PAST CHALLENGES' tab to the navigation menu once this month is over so new and old followers can check out my... well, past challenges.

I'm going to try to do whatever it is that I have to do to keep my blog running. Other than being sick, there really isn't any reason for me to not post anymore since my Grandmothers passing. I will forever miss her, but honestly it was for the best. She had a long, hard life with the diseases she was battling. I really don't know how she did it. She always had a smile on her face, no matter what was happening to her. She was the strongest woman I have ever met. I would love to have half of the strength that woman had. She truly was amazing.

Let me get back to the 30 day challenge...
If you find any challenges that you would like me to do, just email me here:
Title it as: 30 Day Challenge Idea
If I have to, I'll mix a few challenges together into one so I can use all of your ideas. :)

Weight Loss Update!!

You know how hard it is to try and keep up on everything?
Between working out, carefully planning out my daily meals, taking care of my moms' new dog, and doing daily chores... I haven't had time in MONTHS to update this blog!
I feel so horrible!
Not to mention, I feel like I'm stuck in a rut. It seems like the only thing I can post anymore are posts about how I'm sorry for not posting posts!

I started working out towards the beginning of January as sort of a New Years resolution thing. I've really been trying to stick with it, and so far, I haven't done so bad. As we all know, I have hypothyroidism... which makes it extremely difficult to lose weight. With that said... I've dropped 30lbs!
I'm finding that a lot of my clothes are getting to be too big on me, and I really need to find some cash and get new clothes. On another note... I've finally been able to get down into my jeans that I've owned for years, but have never been able to wear. :)


10lbs Down

20lbs Down

30lbs Down

Can you tell? 
I'm honestly extremely proud of myself for losing the weight that I did... Now only if I could lose another 30. lol

I've got a lot more to lose, but I'm going to try to keep you guys updated on my weight loss every now and then. :)

It's been really hard, especially recently since I ended up getting pneumonia. I've still been pushing through it though, hoping for the best... though it's probably just going to making me sicker. :/
