My Pink Palace

Hi Ladies! I hope you had a gorgeous spring Saturday.
The tempeture here in Memphis was a sizzling 95 degrees.
Yep, I really enjoyedsweating my you know what off and sneezing from
 the crazy amount of pollen all day.. not. But hey, what am I complaining about?
 Just a few weeks ago I was fighting off frost bite and wearing 5 layers of clothes.
The only real thing that bothers me about spring and summer
 is that I have to show more skin. Ugh.

I have to be honest, I definitely put on a little love layer since fall and
 there is no way I am letting these jelly rolls go loose. So, I decided to do something
 about it. Here's a hint.. it's one of the most awful, painful, horrendous and dreaded things ever.. a diet. I hate diets! Who doesn't? Saying no to the cinnamon crunch bagel at Panera Bread seriously has to be as hard as climbing Mount Everest. I'm telling you, I have absolutely no self-disipline when it comes to food. I am a sugar-addict, cupcake fanatic, say-yes-to-everything fatty. I try to embrace my body regardless of my weight, but sometimes you just can't help but want to change it. I keep telling myself over and over,

"remember, nothing tastes as good as skinny feels!" 

It really is time I get healthy though. The daily Dunkin' Donuts stops must come to an end.
However, I know that in 1 month I won't regret missing one bite. It's only when you're watching your friend indulge in a piece of chocolate cake while you sit and bite your nails that it's really hard.  I can't wait to stop feeling physically uncomfortable all the time. I can't wait to catch myself in a reflection and think, "damn, I look good!" 

I need encouragement. I don't want anyone saying, "oh you don't need to lose any weight!"
Because guess what, I know they're lying. All I want to lose is about 20 lbs and tone up my arms and stomach. Oh, and don't base my weight off of my profile picture.. that was 3 years ago when I was a stick! My current weight is 142 and my goal weight is 122. Wish me luck y'all! 

Today I decided I'd post some snapshots of my room. Now, keep in mind that this is my childhood room. It hasn't had a make-over in 8 years. Don't get me wrong, I love pink.. but a room with everything but the toilet pink - what was my mom thinking? Okay, it was adorable when I was thirteen. Infact, it was featured in Justine Magazine. 

Remember, I am NO photographer! I can make any kind of art you'd like.. but don't ask me to take a picture! But hey, I tried. Have a lovely, lazy Sunday y'all.

[ keep calm & blog on ]
