All about the color.....

I decided to try out a new brand of nail polish.  I usually use OPI but have a few other brands that I use every once in awhile.  I was in the store the other day and saw that Revlon had this top speed (dries in 60 seconds) nail polish with pretty bright and fun colors.  I decided to give them a try.

The nails on my hands don't grow much; they get to a certain length and chip and peal.  I've tried everything and nothing I can do, short of getting fake nails will help them grow.  I gave up on fake nails years ago.  So with my nails being so short I usually will give myself a french manicure, which I've gotten pretty good at doing, or wear clear polish.  The colors I bought were so cute and after I polished my toes I decided to do my fingernails also.  They didn't turn out so bad.  Because the color dries so quick I'll be changing the color all week.  With that being said here are the fun colors I chose:

1. Mondays Color Cherries in the Snow

2. Tuesdays Color Stormy

3. Wednesdays Color Orchid

4. Thursdays Color Orchid

5. Fridays Color Craving Coral
6. Saturdays Color Electric

7. Sundays Color Black Star
8. All the Colors

So this was my experiment with color.  I think I may start painting the nails on my hands on a regular basis now since I love most of these colors.  Now I'm wanting to go on a polish shopping rampage.  Lol  My favorites were pics 1, 2, 5, and 7.  I realize I don't really care for the pale colors so much, it doesn't go well with my skin tone and for some reason they just look a little dull to me.  The Black Star had a bit of a silver tint to it that I really loved.  I'll probably be wearing this one for the remainder of the week.  The Yellow I want to just toss in the trash and I doubt I'll ever wear it again.  It actually looked cute on my girlies hands so I'll probably just give it to her since she's decided that she now likes her nails done.  YEAY!!  Maybe she's turning the corner from tom boyishness.  Lol. 

Alright, that's it for me people. Wishing you all a happy Monday and a great week. Lol

Food of course....

It always seems that when I don't blog for a moment I'm always inspired to blog by good food. I've been craving Ahi Tuna for awhile and we haven't bought it because its always so freaking expensive.  I finally broke down and bought some yesterday for today's dinner and OH MY GOODNESS.  I need to really become a chef because I amaze even myself sometimes.

I love my fish sometimes with a little bit of sweetness to it and tried something a little different.  I'm not going to tell what I used in the event that I break down and write a cook book.  Lol   I will say that it was probably the best Tuna I've ever made.  It was perfect.

We've been doing a pretty good job cutting down on our carbohydrates.  We were overdosing on them daily multiple times a day so I have to say that I'm pretty proud of myself.  There are days where I want to just indulge in a whole loaf of bread all by myself, OD on potatoes, rice AND the same meal.  Lol  Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating just a little bit.  JUST A LITTLE.

So our dinner this evening was Ahi Tuna, Steamed broccoli, with Strawberries, Pineapple, and Nectarines.  It was actually pretty filling not to mention delicious.  I could probably eat fruit all summer long.  Often times when the weather is warm I have to eat really light because my stomach will begin to feel a little queasy.  I could probably do a soup, salad and fruit diet all summer and be cool.  I had the best cherries and cantaloupe the other day.  Aly posted a recipe for drunken melon balls on her face book page and I'm so trying these, minus the liquor of course. 

Anyway pictures of dinner......

So there you have it.  Tonight's dinner.  It was so good that the little one, with his 5 year old picky self actually ate it and liked it.  He even said he'd eat some tomorrow for dinner.  We may have a new food that we can add to the few foods we can actually get him to eat.  HOORAY!!!!  Victory for Mommy.  Lol

Alright...that's it for me people.  Peace and Blessings until next time.......

Workout day 1....

My husbands little cousin Korey has always been in great shape since I've met her about 4 years ago. She says she was heavier, but I don't recall.  She's been training for some track circut and I haven't seen her in about a year.  I happened to see a video on FB that she did working out and was like WOW.  She had mentioned awhile back that she was going to start training people and had considered having her train me but then never followed through.  After seeing the video I was definitely motivated and decided let me give her a call and set something up. 

So today I had my first workout with her and let me just say it was intense.  Not anything like in the video because that would truly kill me.  I did better than I thought I would  but know that I have still  such a long way to go.  I was sweating and huffing and puffing like crazy.  She took my measurements the other day...which I wont even tell you about, but I may post some before and after pictures.  I'm giving myself 4 to 6 weeks to start seeing results and I have to say I'm really excited.  I'll keep you guys updated on my progress provided I don't die from pain and exhaustion in the mean time. 

Have a good weekend people.  Peace and Blessings.
