Happy Halloween! 

I think I may be the only odd one out when I admit what I’m about to admit… I do think like Halloween! There I said it, now please keep all your judgments to yourself 🎃.

I don’t know why but even as a little girl I never liked the whole concept of Halloween, I never enjoyed dressing up, going to people’s house and grabbing candy, which most of the time it was candy I never liked… I just never had a reason to look forward or to enjoy this particular day. I always just end up staying home and watching movies and relaxing! I plan on doing just that tonight after I get home from the gym!

What are your thoughts on Halloween? Do you have any plans? 

Creating a New Habit. 

Every year I always make the same new year resolution/goal and that is to lose weight.  Obviously like many others I lose my motivation after a few weeks and regain it at the end of the year.  I want to lose weight so bad,  idealy I would like to lose minimum of 60 pounds.  

Before I would just start a diet and it would only last maybe 2 days to a week,  this time around I want to start a new habit and slowly change my lifestyle for the better. Starting today I want to drink at least 100 oz of water and take 10,000 steps a day!  I don’t drink nearly as much water as I should,  even 100 oz is not enough for me since technically I would need to drink half of mg body weight on oz which would be 140 oz a day but since I’m not use to drinking that much, I will start with drinking 100 oz then add more in the days or weeks to come.  Same with my steps,  I don’t do 10,000 steps a day unless it’s a crazy busy day,  so I will be going to the gym after work go make sure I gdt those steps in and I will share them here every Wednesday along with an update on how I am doing with this new habit of mine.  

Is it Monday Already???  

My alarm went off at 5:30 this morning and I couldn’t remember shy in the world I set my alarm on for Sunday.  Then it hit me…  It’s Monday,  you know what that means, back to work back to reality. I feel like i barely had a weekend. All I did was organize, clean, rearrange my room and have our cal ki f bed delivefed; which by the way Im so in love with. My husband and I have always had a queen size bed and have dreamed of one day getting a cal king and we finally did!!! We even ordered the Casper mattress which oh my goodness is so soft,  that made it even more difficult to get out of bed this morning.  

I am now ready for it to be Friday!!!  How was your weekend?

What would you do if you won the lottery? I would pay off both my parents house and my in laws house, pay off their debts and give them some money, buy a house for me and my husband, donate some money to children’s charity/hospital, invest money in something (not sure what though yet) I would also book a trip to Armenia for my parents since they haven’t been there in over 20 years.
  8. Would you like to build/design your own house? I actually would love too, I think that would be so much fun (and stressful too I’m sure)

Whats the best advice anyone has ever given you? When my husband and I were just starting to talk and get to know each other, I went on a trip with my cousin to Catalina Island and I told her about him and how I was terrified of going out with him because I was scared of falling in love with him since I knew my parents would most likely not approve since he wasn’t Armenia, she told me to go for it and not to care and that they will eventually be happy for me and accept him even if it takes a while and boy am I so happy that I listened to her and ended up marrying the love of my life!
