Weight Loss Plan : Week One

Its time for me to get my body in order. 
I need to get healthy.
There are so many things I want to do and most of them can't  do without being out of breath or feeling like I'm going to pass out ( 5k Color Run next summer I can't wait ) 
I know this is going to be a long and hard journey but its so worth it . 

Here's what I'm doing to lost weight:

1. Track everything I eat
Im using the app Lose it to track all my meals and snacks 
2. Reduce my caloric intake 
Lose it has put me on a 2000 calorie intake daily And it also allows me to track my workout daily using the app also . 
3. Increase my water intake 

 I'm officially  joined the jug life  ( a gallon of
water per day ) .
A bonus I will be doing 100 squats as I drink the water





4.  No sugary drinks or soda 
 I will only be drinking water or tea. I know its hard to  cut pop out of my life . And I may have can here or there but no where near as much as I use to . I know I might slip up I'm only human . 
5. Barely any pasta or cheese 
I want to lower my intake of bread , pasta , dairy intake 
I know this going to be hard because I love pasta with load of cheese on top . 
6. Cutting back on alcohol 
I don't want to drink all my calories away. I will be cutting back on my wine  
No more drinking  a whole bottle of wine in one night ( don't judge me ) 
7. Workout Duh ! 
I'm starting a new gym next week but I also have  a lot  of at home workouts I will be doing 
8. Meal Plan 
I will be planning out all meals and snacks 
9. Get More Sleep
A great night of sleep does the body good 
10. Taking Pictures 
I will be documenting my journey weekly and how I feel . But if you want something sooner 
 I will be posting on my weight loss instagram page .

Start weight 320

First goal : 300

Mini Review : Bar Brat Aerator

Recently I received a wine aerator from bar brat .
I never really used a aerator before besides the ones they use at restaurants
What a difference in the wine by using a aerator .
 A aerator releases a bouquet of aromas  from the wine , oxidizing  your white , red and rose wines .
It makes cheap bottle of wine taste so much better .
I'm  in love with mine  and probably won't drink my wine without one .
Its so small and compact that I cant travel with it . ( beach parties , pool and BBQs)
If you have been looking for a great aerator check out

Have you ever used an aerator ?

Throwback Thursday : My First Kiss

My first kiss was my senior year of high school  . 
 I knew it was going to happen and I was so nervous . 
The last bell rang and  instead of going to my after school program 
I decided to go home with R ( my boyfriend at the time ) 
As I walked to my locker my heart was beating 100 mph .

R met me at my locker and we walked hand in hand through
the halls to the student parking lot . 

We got to his car and he opened my door for me and I got in . 
In the 30 seconds it took for him to put our book bags in the trunk
of his car and to get to driver's side of the car I had to give myself a pep talk

" You can do this Brittany ! "
" Don't be scared "

He finally gets in the car 
Omg !!

I looked at him and he just dove in .
No warning , no stopping at Go 

When our  lips met all I could think " Am I doing this right ?" 
But I went with it 
I felt so awkward

I've never been so distracted in my life
Wondering if I was a good kisser
Wondering if anyone was watching us  ( were in the car in a crowded parking lot )

After what seemed like forever
He finally released me
Gazing into my eyes and said
" Wow , That was amazing , I want more "

Heck! , maybe I knew what I'm doing then .

Even though my first kiss was a little awkward it was very memorable .

How was your first kiss ?
Was it very passionate or wild and crazy ?

Being FAT in Today's Society


  Growing up my mother always told me to love my body . 
She always told me never let anyone make me feel bad for who I am. 
Honestly , I still had issues with my body and starving myself to fit in.

Growing up I was teased about my weight and i did let it affect me .
Secretly taking diet pills and skipping meals.  ( Doing all the unhealthy things ) 
I always wanted to look like models i saw on television or the girls in the music videos. 
I thought maybe if I lost the weight I would get my dream guy . 
I thought for once I wouldn't be the fat friend 

Its not easy to get over your insecurities and self hate. 
I hated the fact that I couldn't look like everyone else. 
I hated that the guys didn't like me because I'm fat 
I HATED MYSELF 

It took so long for me to find love within 
To realize what an amazing woman I am 
That I'm WORTHY 
I'm BEAUTIFUL 

I am finally happy with who I am. It doesn't matter what people think about me . 
As long as i love myself it doesn't matter what SOCIETY thinks. 
I know I am unhealthy and I'm working on getting healthier.
Im not losing weight to fit in Im losing weight to be healthy . 

I have family members that give me looks and makes comments about my weight. 
I actually heard my aunt say " Fat people disgust her " 
So what do you think about ME ?
My aunt and her daughters always have comments about other people's weight . 
We can't go a family gathering without them saying something. 
Its like they think they are better than everyone because they stay in shape.
I'm so happy that their comments no longer bother no more .
It feels like people have to talk about you to make themselves feel better . 

Rosie  Mercado is my inspiration 
She has been working so hard to get healthier 
She looks amazing 



Before 
After

I'm not  writing this post to tell everyone to lose weight . 
But I've finally go to the point where I'm tired of walk up stairs and can't hardly breath 
I'm tired of  not being able to run and not feel like I'm dying afterwards 
I'm losing this weight for myself 
To make myself happy 
To finally run an 5K ( Color Run ) 

I'm not trying to be a size 2 
but I want to able to do the things I would love to do without my weight keeping me from doing it .

My Summer Plans

This summer I'm staying focused on two things 

"Working"  If its not for bills or personal needs I'm saving the money . I have two trips I'll like to take one later this year and one next year . And of course I  need a car. I've been car less for months and its been hell. Thank goodness  I'm living in a town with free bus service . 
I feel I will be a better blogger if I had extra funds flowing in  to get some of the things I want of the blog and possible giveaways . 

"Working-Out"  I really  want to live a healthier lifestyle . Eating better cutting all the junk out my life and working out  ( a full post  will be written ) 
I have a goal and I will reach it .

Those are my to main points for the summer . Anything else will be extra / a bonus  . I'm on this journey to myself together . 
I'm 25 and I have to learn  how to be a little selfish 


Sometimes I get so wrapped up into a friendship / relationship  or situation I forget about myself 
This summer about me. 

Summer 2015 lets see what you have in store for me .

Mini Review : Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin Cream

Recently I've been given the opportunity to take part of a Brand Backer campaign testing 
What is Melatonin? Well Melatonin is a hormone produced in the human body. What does it do? Melatonin kind of signals the body when it’s time to sleep. Most of us are used to taking Melatonin supplement pills. Idea of a Melatonin cream is a unique concept.
*** About Vita Science Maxasorb Melatonin Cream: Using Maxasorb Melatonin as directed is a safe and will help Decrease the time needed to fall asleep; Increase sleepiness; Increase sleep duration. Infused with antioxidants and moisturizers, greaseless Maxasorb Melatonin is easily absorbed into your skin. Each 1.7 ounce bottle delivers 60 applications of lotion in protected and measured amounts. Natural ingredients assure this lotion is gentle to your skin. ***
Vita Sciences Maxasorb Melatonin is safe for adults & children 18 years of age or older. One pump of the product has 3 mgs of Melatonin. Cream is thick, but not greasy. This cream is unscented, and like that! Maxasorb Melatonin Cream should last an entire month. I apply it to my arms. 

I have only  been using this product for almost a week now.Since using Maxasorb Melatonin Cream have slept better. In the morning I  am more awake and  refreshed.  I haven't   experienced any drowsiness. No skin irritation .
I have truly slept better using this product . 
Thank you to both Brandbacker & Vita Sciences for introducing me to this new product.
