I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.

note to self  (via khamoshiii)

1. When someone tells you that you should go to bed, they’re probably right. You’ll regret not listening in the morning.

2. No one ever got anywhere without a little work. You want to be a writer? Write. You want to be a musician? Practice. It’s going to be hard and it’s going to take long hours and you’re going to miss that one party but if it’s what you love, it’s always worth it.

3. It’s really easy to get caught up in everything. It’s really easy to forget who was there at the beginning. You’ll feel it happening and you’ll want to ignore it, but darling, don’t you dare. Don’t pull away. Remember where you came from.

4. Everything is easier in the summer. Everything.

5. You have to put yourself first. Stop doing things simply for the sake of doing them - do things because you want to and do things because they make you want to smile and never stop.

6. Spend time with your family. They put up with you through your seventh grade troublemaker phase and if that’s not love, I don’t know what is.

7. Give yourself time. Stop shoving your feelings aside. It’s okay to be sad. It’s okay to sleep until three in the afternoon and then cry because you wasted your day. If no one’s ever told you before, I’m telling you now: your feelings are valid.

I’ve wanted to try this since I saw it on here weeks ago. It was just as delicious as I thought it would be. Tuna on avocado.

Still Altering …

I went to pick up my wedding dress from being altered today. I just ordered it in December and it had to be taken in a couple inches. I tried it on today and it was another inch or two too big. My seamstress told me that I wasn’t allowed to loose any more weight. Haha. On to maintaining … at least until after the honeymoon. It’s true what they say, once you start seeing results it becomes addicting. 

divinemama asked:

How did you start this journey? What was the turning point in regards to motivation? And how did you start out eating? What did you cut out? What did you eat? etc

Thanks so much for the questions. For you (and others who have asked) I started a FAQ page. I hope you enjoy and I would be happy to answer any other questions : )

The only thing that you might not see on there is about what I am eating now. I have just finished my last juice fast before the wedding so I am transitioning with the mind of maintaining my weight loss. 

I am juicing 1 meal a day. For the rest of the day I am eating a plant based diet, which means I eat a lot of vegetables and fruits, some meat, and a bit of extras. Juicing helped me cut out everything processed and not crave junk food. 

Good luck with everything dear!
