Twist Out Routine!

I was peer pressured into starting a youtube channel last week. I do washday every tuesday night now and try to publish on Wednesday – sometimes Thursday.

Here is my first video from last week – the next will come later today. Just finished editing and have to wait on the upload.

This one is tips for the perfect twist out! I give tips and tricks to not ruin the pattern when you’re taking down your twists.

oh and here’s days 2-5 (day 6 i forgot to take a pic, day 7 was a bun)

80 day obsession – half way!

Ok I’m more than halfway but these pics are from day 42. But anywho – I love it so far. I mean it isn’t perfect for me and I haven’t been perfect at it – but I love the results!

Pros –

– Meal plan is LEGIT AF. Tells you exactly what time to eat what and I think that helps. Way bigger changes than eating whenever I can fit it in. And I notice better workout performance when I eat the preworkout meal. Less soreness with post workout meal too.

– Booty day! An entire day of glutes. No, not leg day – that’s a separate day. I love it. My booty has grown so much. Honestly, look

– different workout each day. I never have to watch the same video with the same convos or jokes more than once which is nice. Keeps it fresh.


– workout length. 40 mins – 1 hour. Guys this is my own laziness. I like 30 min programs. But I know I need to do more for more results.

– meal plan. Yes it’s a pro and con. Was a con at first because I refused to follow it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ now it’s a pro. It’s a bit intimidating at first.

…. that’s really it!

I love the moves. Some of them I’ve never even seen before! Definitely a fun program and worth every second because the results I and the others doing this are seeing are so amazing.

Sweet and Sour Chicken Recipe

Guys, I struggle with emotional cravings. I want the foods I ate at highs in my life to make me feel that good of them. One of them for sure is junk chinese food. Not the real kind. The Americanized sugary fatty mess.

Usually I head out and grab some but I decided this time, I shouldn’t. Because I’d had Panda Express like 5 days ago. And it’s time to quit acting like my meal plan doesn’t matter. LOL.

So I made this up spur of the moment and it was LIT so I thought I’d share.


Ingredients –

  • chicken breast
  • whole grain rice
  • pineapples
  • bread crumbs
  • soy sauce
  • sweet n sour sauce
  • honey sesame sauce
  • olive oil


I knew I wanted the chicken to be breaded. I’m ok with breading as an occasional ‘healthy cheat’ and I count it towards my yellow containers (80 day obsession meal plan). But what I don’t have a lot of space for in my diet is fat. So I wasn’t going to fry it.

I took the chicken and seasoned it (heavy, like I was always taught LOL) and then dipped it in sweet n sour sauce and honey sesame sauce. Once it was all coated I put it in a ziplock bag with breadcrumbs and additional seasoning and shook it up.

I ‘fried’ in like a few drops of olive oil.


Here’s a visual of everything I used for the chicken.img_0602

I also added some pineapples because they’re lit.


While all this was going on I had my rice in a rice cooker. It’s so worth it to have one.


I flipped each piece over to get it all evenly cooked. Once it was all done I served it on the rice and had a side of edamame. Oh, I added a little soy sauce to the rice and some sweet and sour sauce over the chicken.img_0605


Yum :). Because of all the sauces, I counted this meal as a 2x yellow, 1x blue, red, purple, and tsp.

Hair update – straight to curly :) and back to my fave product

So a lot of people have asked about my hair pressing routine. There are so many things I do to make sure that I don’t end up with damaged hair – mainly only doing 1-2 passes for each section of hair and not touching up with heat.

But I still hold my breath on wash day! Here’s how I do it πŸ™‚

This was the last day of my press. It lasted about 3 weeks. I was over it. Idk how people with straight hair deal. Hair just shedding. Combing every day. Styling daily. Just not cool.


Here it is with the braid taken out (ignore my sticker, I had taken Beezy to the childrens expolorium earlier haha)img_9757

Bad pic but I section my hair in four sections like I do in my normal washday routine.img_9758

I take one section and totally saturate with water. First it gets smaller and straighter than it starts curling up within like 20 seconds. Then I add my fave deep conditioner and put in a bun.img_9760

I put the 4 buns in a shower cap (flipped inside out so I always have 1 clean side to protect my hair if needed haha) and wait about 5-10 mins.img_9761img_9762

Then I detangle and rinse and add my styling product. I reached for Deva Curl decadence line because honestly, I had my hair styled by devacurl stylists over a year ago and they SLAYED. So I went with it. But it’s never worked as well for me. I have to use SOOO MUCH. And it never lasts as long.img_9763

Anywho finished product the next day. I was hype to have my curls back but not hype with the results.. I NEVER AM with that product. Yet I keep stupidly using it.img_9788

I tried spraying and redefining a few times the next couple of days and it just wasn’t working right.img_9806

So here’s my story – and I’m not AT ALL knocking deva curl. But basically, I don’t know why I kept fighting with those products when I already knew what worked for me. More details on that here.

So basically, I got tired of fighting with products that didn’t work and I reached for Kinky CUrly. It was my staple for YEARS (2009 – 2015 – from growing out to taper to growing out again). I still had some left. Yal, look at the difference in how my hair looked!


I knew from how it looked wet – it was gonna be lit. AND it took me half the time that it takes when I use deva curl. Literally took me 20-30 mins.

But dry – girl….. POPPIN.img_0017img_0002

day 2img_0188img_0099

it’s almost time to do another wash – but I’m happy with how this one lasted. I’ll be back to kinky curly for wash and goes for the unforseeable future haha. Moral of the story? It’s ok to try what works for everyone else. But don’t stick with it if it doesn’t work for you! Do you, boo!

And for the record – no heat damage in sight πŸ™‚img_0243img_0278

80 Day Obsession Results – day 22

IIght yal I’m on day 22 of 80 day obsession and I haven’t updated ya because a biah been busy.Β πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Let me tell you first and foremost – I have NOT been good on the meal plan. I’m always missing meals or eating the wrong things at the wrong times. But I’ve been killing the workouts and trying to clean it clean.

Oh and the vegna plan? That’s cancelled. I couldn’t. I gave it a good shot but I didn’t want to keep cooking 3 separate meals (1 for me, 1 for LB, 1 for hubs) and I was always cheating. So I figured a perfect plan means nothing if you can’t stick to it and went to the regular plan instead. I’m still doing mostly meatless options.

Anywho, let me let the pics do the talking. These are from last week. I didn’t even want to take these because I thought I’d done so bad with food it would be terrible. But I took them because I noticed how much easier it was to get that same outfit on for my workout.


Of course the waist is stealing the show but my triceps and shoulders also made a HUGE come up


Yas love handles!!! Be gone!!!!!


And for an update – here’s a pic from today. Let me tell you – I’m in my PJs and this is a non-supportive tank top (not a bra) soooo don’t mind the saggage LOL. You know I nursed 14 months.img_9907

I’m crazy hype about my results thus far. Youknow I’m an apple shape, so shrinking my middle is a challenge. Literally all my fat goes there. My little booty? solid muscle. Hard as a rock. LOL!

I don’t like working out for almost an hour most days. But you know what I do love? doing a whole day dedicated the glutes. It’s taken my lil booty from ‘it’s got potential’ to ‘iight girl I see you!’02a4530f-bd03-4d99-8c86-c14b7dfad2ce

I acutlaly used to hate these gym shark pants because they showed off my belly pudge and made my booty look flat. But they may be my favorite pants by day 80!

You should probably get your booty into my group. Hit me up and lets talk. Fill out this form for more info.

You better hurry before I complete my transformation to total baddie and I’m too good to answer. LOL! jk jk <3. But do hurry. Summer is coming.

Slight werk – Furniture Edition

So basically, I been wanting a desk. Like forever and a day. But I haven’t been wanting to spend the money AND I have been afraid to try anything myself.

I got over it this weekend. I quickly hit the peddlers mall and found… no desk (for the price I wanted). I did however find this cute little headboard and and side table for $20 (total, not each) and thought hmmmm… maybe I can do these for the guest room or to sell.


Anywho, got home and went back to facebook marketplace and facebook and FINALLY that next morning I found a desk. It was listed for $20 but I got it for $15. Some of the drawers needed a little work (they were missing the metal piece that stopped them from sliding back too far) but it was solid wood a sturdy and I liked the style. Other than those knobs. I knew they were going from jump.


Yes, I did forget to take a before pic once I got these home but yal know how I am. I was lucky to have these pics lol.

February Fitness Challenge!

Excited to announce that I’m enrolling for my February fitness challenge. In February we all celebrate Valentines day, so in honor of that our group will focus on self-esteem and self love. Too often women focus on working out to get rid of something bad about their body (excess fat, love handles, cellulite, etc) or as a punishment for something they ate. This “do it or you’ll be hideous” attitude is so discouraging over time! And don’t even get me started on these starvation or “no carb, no cheat day, no nothing” fasts/diets. We treat our bodies like we hate them! And in return they get tired, broken down, they start cravimg any and everything – and we give up!

I like to look at exercise and eating healthy as a celebration of my body, and something I do out of love. When you exercise because you love your body, and eat foods that it needs because you want to treat it well – it’s so much easier to stick to a plan and be healthy! No more starving, no going days without eating food groups or even food in general. No more. Through this group we will focus on of course reaching our fitness goals, but also treating ourselves as good as we would treat one of our best friends. No negative talk, no looking in the mirror tearing ourselves apart, none of that.

You’ll have all the tools you need to kick off your fitness journey – workouts, meal plans, and more support than you can even imagine.

I have 10 spots open for new clients, first come first serve. If you’re wanting to go on this journey with me, please fill out this form.
