Not Much goes on (9/28/13)

You know not much goes on in my life. I work , go to school & constantly work on my Beauty blog & business.  Thats not to mention taking care of the Mr.
School has been busy, we know this, we are winding down in the last couple weeks so I have been doing research papers & tests. Oh Joy.. But God willing I pass with good grades.

Mr. started his new job this past week, its a bit overwhelming.... You know with all new jobs the first couple weeks is getting used to your coworkers, training, etc.  But there are many good things about this job so far so we shall see.

Switching from Blogger:
I have been using Blogger for my blogs for the past 4 years. I really dont have a problem with it, its just that i want to take CurlyGirlBeauty to the next level and I feel that i need to switch platforms to do that. I cant get with Wordpress, granite its awsome in customizing & there are so many options, ( that is a problem for me) and lets not get me started on code.. Yea I am not very efficient on that . I have been playing around on Squarespace, so far I am loving it. Its so easy and when you look up top blogging platforms, Squarespace & Wordpress are the top two. Its a drag & drop website bulider which is right up my alley. I also love how I can have my store within my blog to make it easy for my readers & customers.

Wedding Talk:
So the Mr & I have been discussing quite a few things for this upcoming year.  It is for sure that our wedding will happen in 2014. Yes, we do have a month in mind, but when its definite & If we feel comfortable or choose to tell everyone ( besides those coming) then Ill let you know.

To Courthouse or Not to Courthouse? (9/16/13)


When is the wedding?, How is dress shopping?, Have you found the venue?, Is it big or small?

These are wedding questions I have been getting and last week it seemed like every day I got a question about Mr A's & I's impending marriage..

I wanted to answer " why? are YOU paying for it?" or " Who says your invited?"  Dont get me wrong, I know ppl want to know because any wedding talk is exciting, but  man I realize now since I am a bride. Its pretty annoying. I can only imagine when  we have our first child.

Some friend's who ask, I don't mind because they hardly ever ask. But some ppl really get into it & act like they are being invited.  Frankly I dont really care to discuss with the majority of ppl for the fact I feel when you do & they dont get an invite , its a issue.   Or since you discuss it  with them , there is a obligation to invite them. ummm Hell No... got the wrong girl... PLUS... Its something I feel is INTIMATE & not for the world..

 So what IS going on with the wedding? ........ Well since I am sharing on my own will here is some updates...

7 Day Slim Down Day ( 1 & 2)

Ok so I know I am late with my updates.  I have been tired & also been trying to get this school work underway.

Day 1: 
The first day was definitely my body getting used to having less food . I did my morning workout &  had  a silmdown scramble & did pretty well with having the 5 meals.  I didn't make a protein shake as the plan says because I wanted green juice & I didn't have any bananas frozen yet. I also made sure I did my afternoon workout as well & had chicken & spinach for dinner.  I admit I felt always hungry but I did eat every 2 hours.  I don't blame me on being hungry I really feel when your body is used to eating one way for so many years then you do a drastic change with smaller portions & less heavy foods your body is like " ummm yea that was nice but where is the food?" lol

Day 2: This was a off day, I did my morning workout I had a protein pancake that ended into a billion pieces lol.. it was still good. Tasted just like banana bread.  I ended up falling asleep ( I work nights) so I missed meals 2-4 so I just ended up eating meal 5 which was  baked chicken & spinach & mushrooms.   still juiced though & did my afternoon workouts.

Photo: M4: instead of a protein shake im doing green juice. Celery, ,Spinach, Banana, a few Strawberries.    #TIUmeals #7DSD #TIUPlan #ToneItUp

Tomorrow is the Day! 7 Day Slim Down (8/18/13)

Well tomorrow is the day. I feel like my life is about to drastically change. Heck it might & it is!  I am just a little nervous though because I work nights & I get hungry at night. So I will have to make sure I pack some healthy snacks or something for that night. I know that is one of the reasons why i gained weight because I eat at night.  I am really hoping I can get my body on track.


I really want to try to blog about my progress & whats going on.  I am thinking Ill start posting some of the recipes I am trying out as well.  I do plan on doing mini updates on twitter @SheisSantana & IG @CurlyGirlBeauty so keep an eye out. I am really excited. 

Check in with yall later!

Time for a change, Tone it Up Nutrition Plan ( 8/16/13)

Happy August!

I know I haven't been updating here as much. I have been focusing on other things.

So Mr. A & I have decided to really pursue clean eating.  We have discussed this many times but I think we are actually ready.  When your really ready then you can do whatever you want.

I recently this week purchased the Tone it Up Nutrition plan by the Tone it Up girls, Karina & Katrina.

I have been eyeing the plan for a while now but never really could make the plunge for the money to buy it.

its $150.00 for a plan that is immediately sent to your email to download. which is great because you don't have to wait. You don't pay for nothing more & have lifetime access to all recipes, community,etc.  Many print their out. Which I have also done, its about 184 pages & then I bought a pink binder ( so girly) & then I made a book of it.

Photo: Just printed off my new @toneitup  plan! New member so excited!  Now ro recruit my fiancé. . *grin*
