I turned Fifty in October. I’ve decided to be Fabulous at Fifty. I began a challenging new workout by starting Orange Theory Fitness. I’m obsessed with this workout. I love being able to monitor my heart rate as I do the hardest workouts I’ve ever done in my life. Since I started at the end of October, I’ve gone 3 – 5 days a week. A lot of people I know have caught the OTF bug, so it’s been fun going with a group and pushing each other.
Unfortunately, though, I haven’t changed any of my bad eating habits, so I may be getting stronger, but I haven’t lost any weight. It’s hard to out-exercise a bad diet, especially at fifty. I seriously think I gained ten pounds the DAY I turned fifty. My metabolism seriously just STOPPED!! I’m just going to have to make some real changes soon.
I’ve been reading about the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, Honey and Lemon. So that’s going to be the next thing I add to my lifestyle. Each morning I’m going to drink a little of that on an empty stomach and see if that will help me curb my appetite and bring about some of the other health benefits I’ve been reading about. I’m thinking I’ll commit to it for a month and see how it goes.
1 teaspoon raw honey
1 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
8 oz. warm water (1 glass)
I’m still not sure what diet I’m going to do. I really love how easy 21 Day Fix was, so that may be my next lifestyle change.
Whole wheat pasta broken in half
Can of mushroom soup
Big block of Velveeta 2%
Can of petite diced tomatoes
Can of Ro-Tel
Garlic to taste
4 Baked Shredded Chicken Breast
About a cup of shredded Mozzarella
Bake some chicken. I baked the chicken breast covered with some lemon pepper, woo, and some other spices I found in my cabinet. I put it on 450 for about 50 minutes. After I pulled it out of the oven, I shredded while it was still hot.
Boil some spaghetti. I like the whole wheat pasta, myself. Drain. Put back in the pot.
Add in cut up Velveeta, a can of cream of mushroom soup, chicken, can of Rotel, and a can of diced tomatoes. If you like additional spices, you can add garlic and pepper, too. Stir this up until the Velveeta is melty. I had to keep the burner on low to help with the melting.
Put all of this in a big pyrex pan. Add Mozzarella cheese on top.
Put in the oven and cook at 375 for about 35 minutes, or until your cheese gets a little burnt looking.
Serve and enjoy!!
I never thought I’d be throwing an OU themed party, but everything sure turned out great!! You better believe all the OU stuff came down immediately after the party. Time to get some UT stuff up in our backyard!!!!
We served cheeseburgers, queso, cake, meat and cheese, and cookies. Everyone went home full!!
I’m one of the lucky ones. If you want Kylie Jenner’s new lipstick, you have to be online the MINUTE she restocks. If you wait even a minute, there’s a very good chance that you WILL NOT be able to order Kylie’s Ultra Mattes. I was the lucky one, not once, but TWICE!!! I got my first oder of Dolce K about a week ago and I’m in LOVE!! I got in a second time to get the Koko K, but I’m waiting (im)patiently for the mail to come in. Now, If I could just get lucky enough to get the glosses!!!!
Enjoy my review. The lighting is a little off and I look really shiny. It’s also the first time I’ve put lipstick on using a computer as a mirror. It’s all good though! I made the video just for fun!!! Also, make sure to like my youtube channel!!!
Last week I was involved in a car accident. Another driver ran a red light and got me pretty good. I was very lucky and walked away with only a few bruises, and so did the young man.
I didn’t even see it coming. In fact, I was so disoriented I thought I had died. All I heard was a loud POW!! I began spinning around and everything was black. There was a smell of what I thought was gun powder. I thought maybe I had been hit by a bomb. By the time I realized what had happened, the boy was already at my door, trying to help me out of the car. Luckily, I was able to get out and move with little problems.
The first thing I did was call my boss. I was on the way to a meeting with her. I knew I wouldn’t make it to the meeting. I then called my husband and my parents. I broke down crying by the time I talked to my parents. By the time I had finished calling them, one of my colleagues was there to help me. I will be forever grateful for her presence. Soon after my husband and my parents were there to make sure I was ok. I realized how blessed I am to have all these people in my life to drop everything to come check on my well-being.
I’m pretty sure one of the coolest cars I’ve ever owned will be totaled. While it’s sad to see it go, it’s just a car. It was a great car and it kept me safe, but it can be replaced…and it already has been…
There is no way I could go without a car, so Saturday I went to Sewell Cadillac and picked up this BEAUTY!! I’m in love. I never really thought there was much of a difference between a luxury car and a regular car. Let me tell you…THERE IS!!! The Cadillac drives like you are floating on air. It’s actually indescribable!!
The experience of buying the car at Sewell was amazing. Their customer service and care is top notch. They truly care about their customer!! I would highly recommend them if you are in the market for a new car. See Scott Dulin because he was awesome!!
I’ve been looking at all these beauty blogs and they take these really pretty pictures of their Colour Pop Lip Liquid in their mouth, so you can see what the color looks like on actual lips. Well, apparently, they either have no flaws or REALLY good cameras with REALLY good filters. Since I only have a camera phone, my picture turned out HORRIBLE. I guess you won’t get the standard lipstick in lips picture from me.
Colour Pop Limbo is the last of my reviews on their ultra matte lip liquids. This is another daring color for me. It’s a bit darker than I would normally wear, but I don’t feel uncomfortable in it, so I think there is a place for this color in my life. I think this color will be perfect for the dress up night on my upcoming Carnival Cruise.
Overall, I highly recommend Colour Pop. They are long lasting and very inexpensive. Definitely worth a try!!
^^Not my lips!!^^
I signed up with Ipsy this month!! I’ve been so excited about getting my first bag. When it finally arrived, I was a little disappointed. I think I need to go update my quiz because I got random items. My two friends got stuff that seemed more like what I would want, so I’m going to have them show me what they put for next time!!
It’s pretty fun getting the items in the mail and it’s only $10, so if you want to sign up, too, use this LINK!!
You may be asking yourself, “What color lipstick should I wear when I go flying in a private plane?” I never thought I’d be asking myself that question, but today I had that very question on my mind as I made plans to fly from Rockwall to Terrell in my brother-in-law’s plane. I decided that Colour Pop Trap was just understated enough not to draw any attention to myself as I climbed aboard this cute little plane!
The flight is about a ten minute flight, which was the perfect amount of time for a first timer like myself. Strangely, no planes were in the air today. When we were about to leave, a man came running out to let us know why. Obama is in town. We had to call in a flight plan to make sure we were safe to fly. Once we got clearance, we made our way to Terrell, but they gave us some wrong code and when we let them know we were about to land, we found out they were about to call in Secret Service because they didn’t know who we were!! Of course, they worked it out and we landed safely. I wonder if my lipstick choice was the actual reason they didn’t have send out the Secret Service!! 😉
My friend turned me on to the Colour Pop ultra lip mattes. Her lipstick was always on point even after a long day. The big secret was Colour Pop!! Since the price was only $6.00 a piece I decided to be a little adventurous when I made my order.
LAX is way darker than I’d normally wear, I kind of feel like a vampire wearing it! I doubt I will get this again, but it sure is fun to play around with on a gloomy Saturday!!
