Yaseru Kongo

Hey Gals!

I am happy to say I’m losing weight. I’ve got a long way to go, but I’m hanging in there and working hard. It’s not so hard to eat well. I do that all day. My weakness is working out at home since I don’t have a gym membership (yet). I get caught up playing with my family and before I know it, I’m yawning. Well lately I’ve been working out every other day. Soon enough I will be working out every day. There is a gym near my new house. It’s $10/mo with no contract. I’m happy about that since all I want to do is use the elliptical machine. I have a finished basement and use it as the dance studio and workout area. I just can’t justify spending a huge wad of cash on an elliptical machine right now. Until I can, I’ll go to Planet Fitness.

As it stands, the clothes I’ve recently purchased are a little looser. I accidently bought some shirts a size too small. I was thinking of exchanging them but now I want to hold onto them. They’d be great motivation. I also have a bunch of clothes from my smaller days that I can't WAIT to wear. Plus my dance wardrobe will increase exponentially. 

Anyway. I'm sure I'm not the only motivated person here. Stories welcomed.

Grown Up Stuff vs Gyaru Stuff

So I'm really happy about my new job. I'm one of three administrative assistants (one is my manager) for a non-profit social services company than has 6 groups homes and 1 emergency shelter for kids. It makes me feel good to finally work for an organization that is making people's lives better.

Anyway, since I was out of work for a while, being a SAHM on a budget meant only ordering my magazines once per season (Happi Nuts, Blenda, I Love Mama, and sometimes Ranzuki). Now that I'm gainfully employed, I can go back to monthly purchasing. I'm pretty happy about that. I still have to spend money on grown up things (my share of the mortgage, taxes, bills, and baby items), but now there will be more money left over for me things. I'll still do nail designs myself, but there will be more consistent trips to the salon in my future.While I can do hair, nails and make-up myself, it's way more relaxing to just pay someone else to do it sometimes. Woo hoo.

And shopping. Oh shopping how I've missed you. My wardrobe has become OL-kei with gyaru finishes. I think I will be better at combining them with more pieces in my arsenal. I'll be posting photos again before you know it!

In the meantime, my lunch break is over. Time to dig back into my mountains upon mountains of paperwork.

Back at It

Hey guys. I'm sooo sorry for being MIA. It's been crazy busy here to a seriously tiring degree.
1. New house and renovations
2. New job and lots of training
3. New fitness plan and better nutrition tracking
... And the usual wife/mom stuff

I'm so exhausted. I'm taking public transit to work till I get my own car in a week or two. Dude! My commute is 2 HOURS. Two. Dos. 二. Zwei. It sucks.
When I have my own car it'll be cut in half. But by then my training will likely be over and I'll be in a different location.

Off topic: this girl on the bus is gonna yell at me if I keep looking at her. She just looks like she should be a black model in ranzuki or Happie Nuts. Seriously. She may not know she's ganguro, but she is. I actually think she does know because she is rockin all the right trends-- well save for the floral leggings, but even they were trend in the summer. I just don't like them. She's got the makeup correct though her lipgloss could be a little more neutral. She's got the high boots, fur hat and military coat on. Big accessories and an animal bag.

She reminds me that now that I'm working I can shop, shop, shop without feeling guilty.

Anyway. I will be posting more frequently now that I'm a little more settled in life. Missed you all. Time to read up on what everyone is up to!!!

Shout out to Miss Calia Yang for being sweet (hope your holidays went well)... And to Madiha for winning the giveaway and being awesome.

Me (*^_^*)
