Weight Loss Update

Hi y'all. 
So, I've lost about 4 lbs now. Its been three weeks and I think that's pretty good considering that I don't work out regularly. 

I've been eating pretty well except this past weekend when I had two plates of rice n' beans with pork. I was at a Dominican baby shower and well, the food was good. I couldn't help myself. 

My goal is 20 pounds. I guess I should throw in some exercise in the mix. Truth be told by the time I get home all I want to do is curl up in bed and do absolutely nothing. It is rough going to work and school. I am exhausted at the end of the day. 
I'll have to figure it out if I want to get to my goal weight. 

Wish me luck!

I heart this

Found this on one of my favorite blogs. She has the best quotes and pictures ever!

I'm not the silly romantic you think. i don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. i don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. i want…a steady hand. a kind soul. i want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe.

All I Have

This past week was relatively uneventful. The picture accurately captures how I feel about my week.
The usual- work, school, sleep. Scintillating, I know.

There was one actual bright spot, I  received a free, yes FREE Ipad from Teach for America. I'm supposed to use it to help teach in the classroom.I've found some cool apps to for stories and teaching the alphabet.
Also, since I'm the biggest nerd I downloaded the scrabble app. I am officially addicted to scrabble. LOL!
Wish I had more to offer y'all devoted readers but I got nada this week.

Hi guys, so I'm not much for outfit posts but I felt like sharing these pics of some of the outfits I wore while on my vacay.

I love, love, love the dress in the last picture. I happened upon it in Forever21 for ten bucks. I had to get it. I wore it to a Sublime concert and received so many compliments. It is so perfect for summer and even the fall just throw on a denim jacket to keep the chill off.

I'm a Loser

I've been trying to lose a few pounds over the past 2 years. I've talked a lot about it and half-assed my way into diets but never kept it up.

I was getting tired of not feeling a hundred percent confident because of my weight so I decided to stop being cheap and sign back up for Weight Wattchers. I know it works from a previous experience and after seeing Jennifer Hudson, I feel motivated to get back on track.

So far it's been 2 weeks and I've definitely shed a pound or two. I plan to keep it up and you can be part of that journey because I'll be tracking my weight loss and progress.

Here a few of JHud's photos to inspire you as well.
Wish me luck!

I've Got a Problem but I Like It!

I have an addiction...I've come to terms with this reality and I make no effort to rid myself of it no matter how destructive it may be to my pocket. Everyone has a vices(s), mine could be worse so I'm grateful for what I've got.

So my addiction is shoes. I own over 90 pairs and counting. I'm adding more to the collection.

Of course I don't really go out  that much and so many of them hardly get worn but I love them so much that I can't help buying more.

I figured I should wear them, so I'm going to wear them in the house just cause. I know it sounds crazy but they could dry rot and I wouldn't want that to happen.

 I was searching for a pair of black flats for work, a staple for a teacher's closet and I didn't have a pair. Now, I'm frugal...I hate paying full price for anything so I was searching the stores on Labor Day for a bargain but found nothing. Decided to hit up my favorite online stores and long story short, Lord and Taylor as usual came through for me. They were having an extra 25 percent off including clearance items.
I ended getting 3 pairs of black shoes. LOL, talk about overkill. They were all so cute though, I couldn't just pick one pair.

DKNYC Standby Bow Flats

BCBGENERATION Jeweled Bow Dress Flats

Lucky Brand Tessa Wood Sandal
Then I was checking out JCrew and they were having an extra 30 off the sale items. I scored big time with a pair of 150 dollar wedges for 40 bucks. Can you say AWESOME! I was eyeing these wedges for a minute and couldn't beileve how lucky I was to get them at such a bargain. Just had to have them.

I am going to try to not buy any more shoes for the rest of the year. I know you won't believe me, my mom doesn't either but I'm going to work on it. Wish me luck.

Shoe Lust


I absolutely love this picture of the Kardashian girls. From head-to-toe, especially toe. I have a penchant for animal print shoes. I love Kourtney's a little more than Kim's but they are both nice. I need a pair ASAP!

Dating Dud

Hey blog reader(s), so I'm officially back to work. It's only been two weeks and I'm already exhausted. Man, what the hell? I don't know how that is possible, I'm not even a classroom teacher. I might need to start going to bed at 9 pm in order to get enough sleep.
On to other things... what's going on with my dating life? It is dustier than Satan's bible. I have had no luck in that department whatsoever. I seem to meet men who I'm just not interested in. This morning I met a young man who approached me in the train station to tell me just how beautiful he thinks I am. I wasn't interested for several reasons the biggest being that I just think that any man ballsy enough to just walk up to me might be ballsy enough to walk up to any other "beautiful" woman and ask them out. I just found him to be a bit too aggressive. Is that a faulty notion? Did I pass up a perfectly good date opportunity? I don't know but it just doesn't make sense for me to pursue something if I have that in my mind already.

Oh, there is a guy, a new teacher at my job who I have a crush on. He is really cute but I don't know if it is proper to get involved with a co-worker. I mean things could get awkward if something funky happened. At least he makes for good eye candy if nothing else.
P.S. What do you think about dating a co-worker?
