Today is the last day of September! This month flew by! Since it's almost October I decided I should talk about my goals that I had set for myself in the beginning of the month. Since I don't want this post to be super long, I am going to break them down into three separate ones.

Karen had asked me about the online dating, so I figured I should start with that one.

Getting a love life has been a big giant FAIL. I don't know what it is, but I've haven't have any luck on e-harmony. Not one person messaged me, and everyone that I sent out a list of questions to (which is the first step) never responded back!!!!! WTF.

On the one hand, I thought I would be more upset about the fact that absolutely nothing has happened, but I'm not. At all actually. Maybe it's because you are online, so the rejection isn't as serious as it would be face to face? Maybe because even the guys I messaged I wasn't exactly over the moon about. Who knows.

I just think it's kinda hard to feel any kind of chemistry, spark or feelings about a person over a computer. I thought this would be easier, but maybe I'm better suited for face to face interaction. The thing is. it's freaking hard to meet people!

When you are in school, it's so much easier. There are guys all over the place! Now that I'm older, it's a lot harder. Sure you can meet people at bars, but they are usually creepers who aren't looking for anything serious. So where do you go to meet new men? Seriously, if you know please help me out!

I almost deleted my e-harmony account, but I decided to give it another month. I tweaked my profile a bit, so maybe that will help. Honestly I would like it if just one person effing messaged me so I can feel like less of a loser. Even if they were a total tool. lol. That must sound really sad and pathetic but deep down that's how I feel. I definitely need to work on my self-esteem.

Help a girl out! Where can you find decent guys???

P.S. - If you have any questions for me please ask!!

For some reason, I haven't had anything that I felt like blogging about. I'm not sure if it's because I've been more content lately or that my life is moving forward in a good direction, but I'm at a loss for words. Which is why my blogging has been sporadic at best.

I find it strange, now that I'm kinda happy, I've lost the ability to blog. I am not giving up that easily, I just need to push myself to write more. Maybe I'll stop being so selfish and write about other events going on in the world. lol. But is that what you want to read?

So I was wondering if you guys could help me out. Why do you blog? Do you usually talk about yourself or current events? How do you push past having nothing to say?

Oh also, if you have any questions for me please ask!!!! Hopefully that willl snap me out of this funk!

If your a lurker, take this opportunity to delurk yourself!

I really didn't have a lot to say last week, which was why I haven't blogged in a while! I just needed a little break I guess.

My weekend was pretty nice. Got my hair done and it's so lovely. It's a nice auburn color and I have a lot more layers. I was itching for a change and I'm so happy with the end result! I also saw Easy A. It was really cute. A lot of John Hughes references which I loved.

Finally my gym started this 30 day challenge. They split up into two teams, Alpha and Omega and every day we have a task to do that gains our team points. At the end of 30 days, whoever has the most points wins! I was hesitant to join the challenge, because I'm not as in shape as everyone. Also there are some tasks that I just cannot do. I'm talking to you pull ups and running a mile in ten minutes. Thankfully there a lot of things that I CAN do and that was good enough for me to sign up.

I'm hoping this will really push me. I feel like I've been getting lazy in my workouts and I need to step it up if I want to lose this 10 pounds for September. Tonight I have to bench press 55lbs!!!!! Wish me luck!

September Goals

I noticed that a lot of bloggers like to make a list of goals for each month. I really like reading these lists and I decided to try one out for September. Here's hoping I stick to it!

  • Lose 10 pounds - so far on my little weight loss journey I've lost about 15 pounds!! For me that's big, considering I've never actively tried to lose weight before. Even better I lost this in the past 6 weeks, which I am really proud of. I would like to lose 10 pounds each month. It's healthy and a reasonable number for me to lose.
  • Only buy items that I need - My spending is a little out of control right now and I can't seem to help it. So I'm only allowed to buy necessities. This past week I spent a lot of money on clothes, shoes and bags so there is no need for me to buy anything else. My only concession is getting my hair done in 2 weeks. I've had this appointment for a while and getting my hair done is one of my favorite things to do!
  • Try to get a love life - recently I joined eharmony. I am very skeptical of the whole online dating thing, but I really need to get out there. I haven't been on a date in a long long long time. I'm not meeting anyone when I go out, so I am going to give the Internet dating thing a try. Wish me luck!

I think 3 is a good solid number for my goals this month. Are there any goals that you have set for yourself?

Labor Day

I hope everyone had a great long weekend!! Mine was really nice. Perfect weather, bbqs, and seeing good friends. I honestly love bbqs and getting together with friends. Especially when the weather was as nice as it was this weekend. I also spent way too much money. lol

On Saturday I went shopping for some shoes for the fall. I only have sandals or sneakers and I really needed some flats for the colder months. I went to the outlets near me and picked up a gorgeous pair of Cole Haan gray flats. They are seriously soo pretty and they were like 90 dollars off from the original price!!

Then I bought a Michael Kors bag. The zipper on the purse I currently had broke, and I've been looking for a replacement for a while. I'm pretty picky about bags, but the second I saw this I knew it was perfect. It was also on sale!! It was still a lot of money, but a lot less money than it would normally be. Plus bags are the one thing I always splurge one. Isn't it so pretty??

Then I managed to buy two more flats, one bronze and another black. But both pairs together was under 60 bucks which was awesome. Plus I had to buy a birthday gift for a friend. I definitely spent way too much money, but I don't really plan on doing much more shopping for the fall. I'm set for now.

How did you spend your labor day?

Happy September!!!! I can't wait for the fall weather to come!! To celebrate I just dropped a ton of money online buying pretty sweaters and pants. lol. Now I just have to wait for the opportunity to wear them.

Also today is 90210 day!! I used to be obsessed with that show. I loved Brenda and how bitchy she was. I also had the biggest crush on Dylan (still do). You're supposed to be dressed like the cast today, but instead I'll celebrate by watching some old episodes.

In amazing news, I knew I had lost some weight while I was away, but the official total is 5 pounds!!! I'm so happy!! Especially since I hit a bit of a wall and wasn't losing any weight for the last few weeks. Hopefully this is just the thing to really kick start things.

In not so great news, I puked again while working out! That's twice now!! I don't know what's going on. I've been googling online to see what I can do to make the nauseousness go away. Maybe it's because it was my first really hard workout since my vacation. Or maybe I'm just a puker when working out! lol. I really hope I'm not.
