My Current Workout Routine

Haven’t really done a new post in a while about my weight or workout routine so here we go. I’d probably say I’m back to eating less crap. For a while there I was eating chips and what not but I’ve bought less of that. Still doing smaller portions and as far as my  exercise I’ve stepped my walking up more since we have had better weather but the big change I guess is I’ve stopped doing the Seven App and have gone back to Yoga.

My weight is around 163.8lbs. I’m not really trying to lose weight or anything but I’m healthy and I’m content and happy with my body and what I enjoy eating. And I really don’t have much stress in my life currently so there is also that too.

There is this awesome Yoga instructor on YouTube her channel name is Yoga With Adriene  she has tons of wicked videos everything from long videos to 6-7 minute boost videos. I’ve been doing yoga again for a few weeks now. I still only do that workout twice a week because I’m walking so much all the other days so I don’t need to over do it.

Yoga really is relaxing and she has a very calming voice which I really enjoy. She has videos for anxiety, stress, runners, boosts, before bed Yoga. Seriously she has a ton of videos just pick which ones you want to do and your set.

Deco Art Crafters Acrylic Paint / DIY Repaint Dresser & Nightstands

Decided it was time to do some diy to my dresser as well night stand tables. I used two colors turquoise and silver morning. The turquoise is a matte finish and the silver is a  metallic finish. I used a roller as well as  rectangle  small kitchen sponges and one wet for quick clean on edges. I also used a small artist paint brush. All supplies even the paints I picked up at my local Dollarama.

I also removed the handles and knobs and painted them separately with two coats each. I need to finish painting the night stand tables and the one side of my dresser and will make a second post of that. But I wanted to show what I did already.

Night stand tables

The facing of the drawers and trim took about two coats. As did the side and top of the dresser. Also to note it says the paint drys within about 15 minutes depending on surface and what not. I should also mention my dresser and night stand tables have a clear varnish on them. And all I did was clean with a damp paper towel and that was it.

Side view
Head on

I really love how it’s turned out so far. I was planning on getting some pretty crystal knobs and handles but I may just leave it as is. Since it looks so much better. And honestly it really didn’t take that long to do all of it. I’ll be super thrilled when it’s all done but for now I’m really impressed with my self for having the patience to do all the fine detailing. And making it as perfect as possible and believe it or not but I didn’t even use painters tape. I was just extremely careful and mindful about cleaning up spots.

Stay tuned for part two.

Laptops 💻

So my laptop 💻 finally met its death. Yesterday I wiped it clean twice, it just wasn’t updating its fire wall or anything let alone updating windows. This morning I took it to Staples for them to recycle ♻️. It’s over ten years old had already had a battery replacement and it gets super hot now.

I signed it over and kissed it goodbye okay not totally but was like  bye-bye Felicia. While I was there I took a look at the new models of laptops and what I found was 98% of them didn’t have a disc insert. I guess that’s anew thing?.

I did keep the laptop case as well the adapter that plugs into the machine just in case the new one I get at some point fits it but I can always get rid of it in case it doesn’t.

So glad computer stores have recycling ♻️ programs. Less crap in landfills.

Over & Out

Ground Hog Day LOL

It seems to be a repeated pattern at least once a year I get annoyed at social media as well some of the people I call friends that never call or message me / text me on Facebook.

I know this because Facebook will show me memories from years past. Thanks Facebook for the reminder lol. I wonder why people  behave like that. What blows me away is if you don’t reach out you will probably never hear from your friends.

Its like if I died tomorrow minus the small select few that I know would care would any of the other people who are supposedly my friends notice? I’m writing this not in a depressed mood more like in a curious wonder mood.

It’s like if we are friends why am I always the one reaching out?, your fingers aren’t broken are they? You can call me or respond to my messages if I left you one on your wall. It seems like nobody really pays much attention to messenger. I feel like I need to write on their walls if I want to speak to people which is kinda sad and pathetic.

Does anyone else feel this way?

Piano & Curls

One of my friends who is a extremely talented piano player put together an event last night where he preformed some of his own songs as well other tunes. It was held at his work. He played on a Yamaha Grand Piano. It was a good turnout and some really beautiful songs. As well as this piece he wrote for his wedding. He’s exceptional and plays really beautifully. You know where you hear music and it’s like you’re in heaven. Some of the pieces he played last night was like that just bright white light. I’ve always loved piano music.

This is one of my favourite pieces of his. If you subscribe to his channel I’m sure his performance from last night will be uploaded soon.

I decided to get my hair all glammed up and it was my first time wearing out my flip-in hair extension that I made. It has monofilament wire doubled. And I sewed the two quad wefts together to make one piece. As you see below. It’s a 18 inch and 15 inch together to make a layered piece.

I couldn’t resist not rocking it. And after a little while I forgot it was on my head. Though at first I was afraid it was going to come off with the wind. But by my surprise it stayed put and till I removed it when I got home.

My whole look really came together and the dark brown really pops with the white jean jacket. I felt like a million bucks but super comfy and casual. Also side note that Marilyn tank. Last year when I got it it would drop down to low when I walked and showed way more cleavage than I wanted so I removed about an inch of fabric and then re stitched it and now it sits perfectly.

It was a nice relaxing evening with friends and then I came home had two glasses of wine before I fell asleep watching tv lol.

Contentment

I used to feel lonely 😭

because I was single

always wanting someone to complete me

I’ve spent years searching online

going on endless dates

Slept with many short falls

having few relationships

that were not the perfect fit

The realization was real

to think I could be alone forever

Then one day I started to love ❤️ myself

whole heartedly

Leaving online

knowing I’ll meet my man

out in the real world 🌎

when the timing is just right

Right now

I’m 😌 content.

Though I still feel lonely at times

I’m human

Nudes Eyeshadow Palette by Essence

I find it difficult to find eye shadows without the shine. Most palettes have a ton of shimmer colours but lack matte shades. Sometimes you just want a soft eye look without all the shine.

I picked up this Palette at my local Shoppers Drug Mart for a hefty price lol of only $5.99. I even used a little of the medium dark shade on my brows.

You can pick your Palette up at either your Shoppers or here.

Happy Blending!
