Shades of Orange

Got the title of the post from Shades of Grey.  By now most people have either heard of or read the book by E.L. James.  Supposedly, Selena Gomez is going to play Anastasia Steel. Don't know how to feel about that one.

On to the title of this post...

Shades of Orange:

During the past 5 months, I have worked my bootay off.  During that time, I have gone from a size 18, weighing in at 221 lbs.  Currently, I weigh 185 and wear a size 10, depending on the cut.

Looking over my photos, its easy to see orange is one of my favorite colors.

As stated on Here is what is said about ORANGE.

Orange is a power color. It is one of the healing colors. It is said to increase the craving for food. It also stimulates enthusiasm and creativity. Orange means vitality with endurance. People who like orange are usually thoughtful and sincere. Lady luck's color is orange.

I started out with Jillian Michaels, thanks to my #OGcurly -Crissy

Began to notice that I felt good after working out, but not really challenged. After 30 days of Jillian, I moved on to Supreme 90 by Tom Holland.  I love his workouts!  Tom reminds me of myself.  He starts on one thing and then next thing I know, we're doing something else.  Talk about muscle confusion.  The 10 set of DVD's cost 19.99 at most locations. (Walmart, Amazon and Dollar General)  You will need a stability ball and weights for most workouts.  However, if you don't have the ball, most videos show how to workout without it.

Wendy Williams with Natural Hair Wig

Late last night, was turning channels and got a glimpse of Wendy Williams with Curly Hair wig.

I kind of like it.  Looks like it needs just a little more shape to it.  

Perhaps, Wendy will start rocking her natural hair.

What are your thoughts?

I almost had a NaturalHair style

Today's Encounter:  I went to my dad's church .  Usually, I do this when I need to hear something special just from him.  Being the cry baby that I am, feeling rather proud of myself.
Only when I was introduced as his daughter, did I get emotional.
When it is pretty outside, I miss him.  Mainly, because I can imagine him golfing.  Then, after golfing he would call and just hang out at my house.

While at my dad's church, I noticed 3 coily girls.  Yes, I invited them to the May 19th event.  One remembered an event that I had a few years back.  (insert smiley face)

Last night ,as I was talking with Karen, I told her of the big plans that I had for my hair.

It was supposed to turn out like this:

However, it turned out more like this

Man, I wish I could cornrow!  Mine always comes out puffy!  

I am going to try the style minus the cornrows.  
Will definitely, keep my coils posted

Happy Sunday!
