Hi there! I'm Khassi, and im glad that you have stumbled upon my blog:) It is all about living a better (healthier) lifestyle. As you may have already found, With that comes challenges and I hope to help you as so many have helped me on my journey!
Hi guys. Yes, its been awhile, and i'm sorry. I'm still alive I swear, Ive just been focusing on other things the last month, but I'm really going to try and blog more. I find that writing and inspiring you guys inspires me too! I'll be honest, this last month has been rough! I have been going back and forth between eating like a health maniac and eating like a little piggie lol, Unfortunately though, the little piggie one most of the time =X. This week has been better though, Honestly it has. The weather is so bad that I have been doing in home work outs and man am I feeling the burn in my thighs today! Anyhow, My goal for 2013 is to drop 38/40lbs. Putting me at a total weight loss of 100-102lbs! I know I can do it, I have already come this far! My newwest motivator is my Birthday! I want to look and feel absolutely amazing for a photoshoot and glow from the inside out. Getting healthy is the largest, best committment you'll ever make to yourself. The rewards never stop coming! Wish me luck for the next few weeks, I'll be training hard haha, And all the while thinking of all of you. It's 2013, YOUR YEAR. You can do this, We can do this.
Hi guys. I feel like the asshole, of all assholes coming back to write a post after being MIA for just under a month and a half. I really am sorry. And there is no real excuse on why I haven't written, I just havent. A lot has changed though! I am now in Kansas, and I have a new job and I'm attending a new school with a new major. All good things, all positive things.
Now then, now that Ive gotten that out of the way,I wanted to deviate from the original topic in order to share things I MISS, about being a size 18. (inspired by my favorite fitspo blogger) Yes, there are things that I miss about being unhealthy and uncaring.
I miss being able to wake up in the morning go down to the fridge, and munch on a delicious glazed donut as I prepared my real breakfast, Bacon, fried eggs with extra cheese and buttered toast. I miss Movie Night with my sisters, where we would each order our own large pizzas piled with our favorite toppings, grab a blanket, a few king sized candy bars and call it a night in. I miss going to buffets on sundays with my mom, and never worrying about how many calories were going on each plate, only how many trips it would take to get a plateful of everything I wanted. I miss not feeling guilty for wanting Baskin Robbins right after eating a combo meal from Jack in the Box. I miss McDonalds. I miss eating, and being so full and happy, a nap was clearly in order to celebrate. I miss the feeling of looking at a dining menu and knowing that my options were limitless; as long as I had the money it was mine. I miss ooey gooey cookies the size of my hand. I miss going into auntie annes and having them know my order. I miss the comfort of my belly rolls, and how everything on my body was oh so soft and squishy. Most of all, I miss not thinking and planning everything that went into my mouth. I miss the absolute freedom of being Care-free.
Like wise though, there are things I absolutely don't miss. THESE things are what drive me to try again and again, to push myself harder, and constantly work towards a better healthier life.
I dont miss going into my closet and pulling on a t-shirt that has all of a sudden turned into a middriff. I dont miss going into a regular clothing store and having to try and descreetly see if they carried extra large. I dont miss having to leave said stores empty handed becuase I could not fit the size 14 jeans, and thats as large as the sizes went. I dont miss going into dressing rooms, pulling on pants that by the look of them "should" fit, but once I tried to put them on, wouldn't get up past my thighs. I dont miss trying to find the perfect shapewear that would give me the tummy tuck I so desparately needed. I don't miss getting to the top of a flight of a stairs, and breathing so hard I could barely speak. I dont miss watching my husband go for runs, and wishing I had the energy to run by his side. I don't miss avoiding doctor's appointments to avoid the embaressment of getting on the scale. I don't miss giving up when the going got tough, and breaking promise after promise of "ill start tomorrow." Most of all,though, I don't miss having no control over my life, Knowing my health was spiraling out of control, but being to terrified of failure to stop it.

Hello my Lovelies, Happy Friday to you! I just wanted to make a quick post letting everyone know about a few changes with my site. For all of you that have sent me emails asking for a personal diet and excercise plan I did recieve them! I've created a new page titled "Getting Started" just for you. It is the best that I can offer you for now (being that I am not a medical doctor or nutritionist), I hope this helps you in all the ways it helped me=). I'm also making some changes with the layout, just to make navigation a little easier..so if you come here and the page looks odd, give me a break! haha just moving everything around. Lastly, Keep on the lookout for more pages, I'm working on a few projects now such as: "Fast Food-Fixes", and "Wanderlust" keep your eyes peeled for them! Until next time my dears Love, Love, and more love!
Good morning lovelies. I hope everyone started off the day right with breakfast and a smile! I'm sitting here munching on tortilla chips and fresh avocado thinking of ways, I can greater inspire you all:). Honestly, I was struggling yesterday to chose healthy meal choices (Little Cesar's is just too darn convenient I mean really, 5 dollars, hot n and ready?! lol) But I stuck to my guns and made dinner as my husband chomped down on his Chinese takeout. The best thought I have for you is that It's A Brand New Day! You have the choice of making today whatever you'd like it to be! Yesterdays struggles are indeed in the past. Today, I'm not going to think about how I wanted to give up..because guess what? I DIDN'T! and that's the most important thing. Today I will hit the gym and give it all I have, Eat foods that compliment and heal my body and Live My Life! I have found that living a clean lifestyle can be a bit intoxicating at times..it's important not to obsess, Live and Learn. Take your hiccups with stride and keep breathing day by day. You don't want to get to the end of your road and realize you were healthy but didn't enjoy a single minute of it! Just something to think about. As always, love love love
This is my favorite quote for the moment! Pure honesty is the way to go sometimes:)! When they say train, its not just about hitting the gym! Train yourself to make better choices as well, Every little thing comes together to form a healthier you!
