Weight Loss Journey

I started my weight loss journey on January 6th of 2015. I take a bootcamp type class 3 to 4 days a week. We do HIIT (high intensity interval training), body weight exercises, weights, conditioning and so many things that really put us through our paces.  I love it and it more times then not kicks my butt! In the last year here are my results of losing 30 lbs.

I am 5'9" and have gone from 180 to 150lbs. I have gotten as low as 144lbs, but then Christmas happened and I decided to enjoy my favorite foods during that time. Now Im trying to get back on track. The after pics were just taken last week and the before pics were taken on January 30th 2015. The workouts helped me tone up and get those killer arms :) 

It was the cutting out sugar and eating properly that really got the weight off. Just one without the other isn't very beneficial. You need to do both the get really great results.

I am very please with my progress and I still have a little more I want to accomplish. I think 2016 is gong to be a great year in my continuing journey to better health.  Ill be sure to keep you updated on my progress.  

Have something to share about your journey? I'd love to hear it. Please comment and let me know how you're doing.

Make Up Forever Ultra HD Foundation

I've tried the MUFE HD foundation several times and it never worked for me. So I finally went and got a sample of their Ultra HD foundation. It seems everyone loves it. Guess I'm just not everyone, or alas my skin isn't :(

For one I can never get the color that is right for me. I have been match more then a few times with the regular HD foundation.  The match I got for the Ultra HD was the closest match so far but still wasn't perfect. I found that my holy grail foundation Estee Lauder Double Wear looks much better on me. MUFE foundation accentuates my fine lines and just overall doesn't look good on me.

Over the years I have found that most of the foundations that people just absolutely love usually don't work for me. I wish that wasn't the case but what can I do right? Even though I have my HG foundation I'll still continue to look for another. I like options!!

Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir

Have you had the chance to try Marc Jacobs Velvet Noir mascara yet?  No? Why not? If you want nice full lashes then give it a shot.  I have short stubby lashes (oh, lucky me).  Since you can see that my lashes look pretty good in the pic below then this mascara is definitely doing it's job.

If you decide to try to out, let me know your thoughts on it!

New Year New Blog

I have a new blog!! YAY!!  (something like that). I let my hosting lapse on my last blog cause I wasn't doing anything with it (shame on me). Now I can't access any of my other posts cause they are being held captive by my hosting :( Perhaps someday I'll work it all out and possibly move everything over.  But until I do this is what it is.

What is this blog about? Well...  Make-up, reviews, life, you name it.  I suppose that's where the neurotic part comes in.
