Get Fit Friday: 79 for 7 of 9

Author's Note: This is a scary post for me to write, so please be gentle and just wish me well on my journey :)
Now, onto the blog post!
So, on Monday, this happened:
And that inspired the 79 for 7 of 9 challenge.
Between Sunday July 28,2013 and Saturday June 7th, 2014 (10ish months) I pledge here in public that I will be losing 79 pounds.
I will update every Friday with what I have been doing and how my progress is going.
I will also be taking a photo every month showing my progress (See the end of this post for the initial photo).
I am not quite sure how this is going to work yet, so I am going to start slow with exercising for 20 minutes 5 times a week and eating lots of fruit and veggies (Salad for the win!).
My first goal:
I have a really cheap scale and I am slightly over it's limit. My goal is to get to the point where I can actually see my current weight. I think that is a good first goal. :)
I think that is all for this week. I'll update you all next Friday! Wish me luck.

Wednesday: What Did I Read, TBR list.

Hello all!

I know I haven't written a review in a couple weeks, and sadly, I am not going to be writing one today. I haven't had any time to read since I started a new job and am still organizing the new house.

Today though, I present to you the next three books in my TBR pile so you can know what is coming!

1) The Indigo Spell by Richelle Mead
2) Inkblot by Johnson Naigle
3) Cocked And Loaded by Desiree Holt

So, as you see, there is an interesting array here!

Wish me luck in keeping my heart pumping and my blood pressure normal.


P.S. See you Friday with a totally new subject for the blog and one that will round out my M-W-F posting schedule!

Makeup Monday!

Hey everyone! I know most people do a face of the day, but I am going to do a face of the week Every Monday with my favorite look I have created in the past week.

Today I have a face of the week that was created using only Pixi products!

On the face: Illuminating Tint & Conceal in Light Glow tinted moisturizer and concealer.
Week of Wake Up Makeup Monday Blush.
On the eyes: Week of Wake Up Make Up Monday eye shadow combo
On Lips: Succulent lip twin in opal orchid.

With as hot as today was, this was a nice refreshing look that stayed all day. I think next time though, I would keep a little powder on me for when it gets really hot and I need to mattify a little.

That's all I got, see you Wednesday with a new Weekly Wednesday segment!
