6.7.11 challenge day 15

challenge 15. my zodiac and if i think it fits my personality:

"cancerians get things done through the powere of their emotional commitment. not only do they aggressively work to accomplish the goals inspired by their own feelings, they also know how to appeal to the emotions of others. by making other people feel like family members, cancerians effectively motivate others to get things done. they have to learn how to reach an emotional balance since they tend to be overly sensitive and moody."
- from my daily horoscope app on my droid

i 100% agree with this.

if i have some time later today, maybe i'll snap a full body pic of my outfit.

my weekend

i had a wonderful weekend...

especially because i had the opportunity to catch up with some of my favorite women from college.

and on friday, i spent my evening at pier i drinking with my bff. if you haven't been to pier i, then you haven't found a nyc gem.

6.5.11 challenge day 13

challenge 13. my opinion on my body and how comfortable i am with it:

i would be a liar if i didn't admit how unhappy i am with my body sometimes. i miss the days i weighed 120/130 pounds and hope to someday get back down to that weight. lately, i have been super happy with myself because i lost 10 pounds since november the healthy way. i think that i can keep this up without starving myself or depriving myself of the stuff i like to eat/drink.
so the positives about my body?
i have boobs and a butt but my waist is small. i'm glad that when i gain weight, it never goes to my tummy. i love that people rarely understand how curvy i am unless they see me in a bathing suit. i'm happy i am not so skinny that i look like a lollipop. i'm really happy that i am healthy.
