Monday Management...

MONDAY!!!!! Let me start by saying all Mondays should be like today...For once I was not dreading this day! It is because I am on my first ever Staycation!!! Woot Woot. I have no plans except to work out everyday! It feels so good not to be in a hurry and thinking about whats next. I am so in love my fiance but if it fails I am marrying a man with lots of money so I can be a stay home wife!!!! LOL... Monday was totally my bitch check it out...

14.48 minute mile.... I did 16 minutes on the treadmill total before step class

I really need to bring that mile time down, but hey like the profile says I'm a wanna be runner... *chants to self* I WILL GET THERE... Anywho I did 16 minutes total before I went to a 45 minute step aerobic class.

Me before the step class
With the workout done I was able to eat lunch, start dinner, and do my homework all before noon. Of course I took advantage of the free time and took a NAP!!!!

Not my favorite but not terrible
I love Pinterest so I decided to use one of the thousands of crock pot recipes I have pinned and make dinner.

Just throw it in the POT!

Had to clean this stuff first!!!
*drum roll please*

Crock Pot Chicken soupy stuff... That mini me had two servings of.

So all in all today was a great day... Now time to give the fiance some attention before his lip hangs any lower #poutmuchsir!!!! LOL

How was your Monday? Anything new?

*sips water and goes to the back with the fiance*

Who me... Thanks

Just when I was beginning to feel left out my girl nominated for this cool blogging award! Thanks homie!!!

The rules, should you be nominated:
1. If you were nominated, post 11 things about yourselves
2. Then answer the 11 questions the person who nominated you created
3. Create 11 more questions to ask the bloggers you decided to nominate
4. Choose 11 bloggers to nominate with less than 200 followers
5. Make sure and let these people know you nominated them! No tag backs, so don't nominate someone who nominated you.

So here is my 11... Just skim the list Im kind of boring LOL
1.     I hate the toilet seat being up
2.     I am team ANDROID!!!!!
3.     I love going to the nail and hate the beauty salon LOL
4.     I cant stand being hot
5.     I recently have found a love for tea
6.     I silently judge those who leave the house looking better than their children
7.     I am newly engaged
8.     I am trying to give myself a cross addiction to salads and running
9.     I love potatoes
10..  My guilty pleasure is basketball wives… judge me
11. I think my daddy is the best man in the world and that all men should strive to be like him (even now that he is becoming a grumpy old man)
Still there… ok….

Here are the answers to the questions I was asked:
1. Do you have pets?- Not unless my fiancĂ© and 7 year old count! I’m not really the animal type… I do like goldfish though LOL

2. Did you graduate from college?-
 Twice, and currently working on a second masters in Forensic Psychology
3. How many countries have you traveled to?- Sadly none… I was born in Germany because the parental were in the army but I don’t remember it at ALL

4. What's your favorite TV show?- Hmmm right now I would say Scandal… I love Kerry Washington in this show, and the drama!! Whoo Hooo I’m hooked!

5. Do you love/enjoy your job/career?-
 I really enjoy helping others, as a therapist it is often thankless and very hard. I hate the pay and the fact that mental health always takes a back seat to everything else. Have you ever heard a politician even speak on the matter? *steps off the soap box*

6. Do you consider yourself an introvert or extrovert?- I would definitely say an extrovert. Id talk to a brick wall if I thought it would talk back. My fiancĂ© says “You just make people talk to you”…. This may be an occupational hazard

7. What your favorite meal to cook?- For my family meatloaf, green beans, and oven roasted potatoes… what I actually like cooking is anything in the crock pot, it’s so easy

8. Why do you blog?- Honestly it started as a place other than twitter to rant about a bad break up… now its more of a weight loss struggle diary… Always a struggle LOL stay tuned….
9. What's one goal/dream you hope to attain in 2013?- Lose weight and feel gorgeous on my wedding day to my best friend, the love of my life!!!

10. If you had more free time, what's something you'd like to do?- Work out more.. no really I would like to travel… but that would require more money so yea I’d say work out more! LOL

Reception Site... sort of

Let's see what has been going on with me... First I have a few new followers! Welcome to the madness. I love comments so feel free to send them! I have decided to do something I have never done before TAKE A WEEK OFF WORK,. I am stoked to stay home and do... NOTHING!!! I work as a mental health therapist in community mental health and let me just say there is always something to do and NEVER a moment to do it. I have been in mental health since 2006 and my current position for almost two years and a break is much needed!!! However in usual Toya fashion the moment my vacation starts so does the next semester of school HAHAAHAH jokes on me so homework will have to be done!...

OK wedding stuff... We have unofficially decided on a reception site venue yaaay!!! On our venue shopping day we got some goodies!
From the DoubleTree.. Our first stop and our eventual choice and just so you know I gave my cookie to the fiance.

From the Marriott our original first choice until we actually went looking... White Chocolate Mocha make it skinny no whip cream

We went to several other places but they did not give any goodies. LOSERS...I say we have unofficially picked a site because we are working class, as in check to check and the next check better come or we may be homeless, not rich or well off by any stretch of the imagination so we have not put a deposit down (whole other melt down post about wedding cost and my love working two jobs I'm sure will eventually be posted) . However the lady at DoubleTree placed us on a conditional interest list. This means if someone else wants our date she will call us first and give us the opportunity to fork over the deposit. GO her!!!! Another reason why I am more than excited to have my big party there. She was amazing... (#DoubleTree by Hilton in Chattanooga, TN).

Weight loss.... I have been going to weight watchers off and on and I am convinced it works I am just confused. She wants me to eat my workout points back??? Ummm no way ma'am. I am no doctor or nutritionist but I know my body and it works like this: 
Eat= gain weight
Eat the right food= maintain weight
Eat the right food and work out= weight loss
Eat the right food, workout, eat again= weight gain
Eat Look at a doughnut=weight gain LOL, come on its not just me

That being said I cannot eat those workout points back!!!!! No WAY. At the last meeting I maintained my weight however when I was not attending meetings I relapsed on my food addiction and was a full blown junkie gained weight that they know nothing about but managed to get it off before returning to the meeting.... I will post a bare all weight post in the near future *cries a little and dies a small death*

Anyway this post is getting long and I have a soccer game to get to so catch you later!!!!

Whats been up with you? How are things weight loss, hair growth, whatever you are doing...

Oh yea I want a signature someone please tell me how to do that!!!!!!! thanks again

SO I know it has been a while but here I am…. So much has happened where to start… I GOT ENGAGED!!!!! Woot woot (mid happy dance thinks Oh hell no I will not be a fat ass bride)…

So he proposed in front of my immediate family and  my line sister (I am a Zeta) at my favorite place to eat, Chillis, which is also where we had our first date!!!! *I scream*

This is us in the way to hang out... EVERYONE knew it was about to happen but me!!!!
He is not good with pictures!!!!

My girl Erin hooked me up with a Pintrest board (as if I didn’t have one LOL)… I found this really cute bridesmaid dress and we will see what the ladies think about it….
Yes the colors are purple and grey and I think this dress is AMAZING!!!!!

Guess more of my meals will have to look like this …

Im going to have to start leaving the cheese off probably

Because I am officially SWEATING FOR THE DRESS!!!! Yaaaaaay

Now I have heard that planning a wedding makes you lose friends but dam! I haven’t even been engaged a week and already people upset. My dear friend was very dry when I announced my engagement letting me know that she was at tailgating (after it had been said that no one could get dressed in time to be at the restaurant) but oh well I still sent her an email asking her to be a bridesmaid but I'm thinking she will get cut. I do not want anyone involved that is not happy for me. I mean geesh be a real friend and fake happiness to me and be jealous on your own time hefer! LOL…

Anywho here we are right after I said yes. I promise I will post a better pic of him but my baby just does not photograph well LOL…

So here we go follow me as I SWEAT FOR THE DRESS, and plan OUR BIG DAY!!!!!....
