Wonder Woman

Ever have one of those day/weeks/months that you just feel like a super hero.  Well I have felt that way this last week because I seemed to have found a way to juggle my life a little better.  I know I talk about having a schedule and loving my schedule all the time and I do love when things are organized and there is a time for everything but being a freelance makeup artist and hair dresser doesn't exactly allow me a regular schedule.

That being said for the last couple of weeks I have managed to make it to the gym and to all my shoots and even book more and more work.  So I don't get to go to the exact classes every week or go at the same time every day but I do manage to get there most days!!!!

I forgot how much I love my gym time!  Its usually an hour or so that I don't fell strapped to my phone or social media.  Lets all be honest...unless you are a doctor or have some really  important job you don't have to have your phone on you at all times.  That is such an easy thing to type but not so easy to practice in real life.  And for little more honesty I have my phone so if something comes through that is important I can stop what I'm doing for a few minutes and address it.

I am remembering all the soreness and blisters that always comes with getting back to the gym.  My back and knees are absolutely screaming but I know after a few weeks  it will be all worth it.  I will get used to it and be able to find new muscles to make sore next week!!!!  And I have managed to create a few goals for the month of November to reach without any prices/insensitive but just because its good for me!



And since I couldn't decide between the Lynda Carter and comic character Wonder Woman I just decided to post both!

Heyyyyy Peoples!

Hey my friends!  Ive been meaning to post for like 2 weeks now but I keep getting side tracked or booked up so I have not had the time to do it but today I have the whole day off! So far today Ive slept in, joined a new gym and now I'm hanging out on the front porch of yet another new apartment finally catching up on my blog here and my beauty blog at www.emilyknightbeauty.co.


So yes, I joined a new gym.  I'm heading back to the Y! because lets face it the Y! my favorite gym.  I joined the Y! when I was in college and stayed there for years but when I moved back to my hometown there was only one gym with a pool so I went there for years and years and now that I'm in a new location again I found a Y! that is in my area so I joined up.  I was pretty excited when I had a gym in my building but lets be honest...its like having a treadmill in your bedroom.  I never ended up going because it was just to easy to get to.  I like the idea of going to the gym....its like I have to make a decision to go to the gym.  So needless to say I'm glad to get back at the gym and in the pool.

I haven't been training for anything but would like to get back to a training goal because I seem to go better when I'm working towards something and there are lots of races in my area (triathlons) in about 9 months so it gives me a chance go get back in shape and train and, for the love of God, hopefully lose some of this weight!

Just a Short Sebatical

Hey folks,  Sorry Ive been out of commission for a few weeks.  My lease on my old apartment was up and I was having trouble finding a new place and so I was staying in a hotel and I just wasn't feeling like logging on to public wifi so I took a short internet break.  So after using 500% of my data on my phone in a month I have finally found another place to live!  Yippee!!!!

So my new place is amazing and I am already in love.  My new apartment building has a pool and a gym (so I canceled my other gym membership) and it also has a sauna.  I can get my entire workout done and I don't even have to leave the building!

As you all know I do so much better with my weight when I have a goal and as of last week I officially have a goal, you know....other than that being healthy and living a long time goal.  My cousin who I think you will recognize because she has been my workout buddy for quite a while is getting MARRIED!!!!!!

Hahahah this picture makes me smile....if you knew how hard this workout series was you would just simply be impressed that we still were smiling.

So now that I have a little new found motivation I'm hoping to start seeing some more results.  I have not gained any weight but I haven't really been losing any either because I can't seem to control what I'm putting in my mouth.

So until this becomes an option I guess Ill have to practice a little more self control.

I'm excited about being settled in a new place for a little bit so maybe I can get into a bit of a routine but with my work schedule being different every day that is the hard part so I'm hoping having the gym in my building even if its 3am or 11pm I can still get a workout in everyday.  I know that working out is only part of the equation, like 15% for me and the other 97% (hahah) is my food but I tend to do better with my food when I do better with my workouts.   I don't know why but it works for me!  

I'll be back with you sooner rather than later this time!  And hopefully Ill have some good weight loss results!

So Excited and So Disappointed

So here goes.....

I have finally finished up all of my school work at Studio Crush and now its time to get to work!  I am so happy with my decision to go to the school and the experiences I gained.  I mean come on, who gets professional pictures of their work like this...

 

  

That being said now I am trying to find work!  And I know its gonna be hard and I'm going to have to crawl from the bottom up but in the last week I have booked 2 jobs and both of them got cancelled.  I know the glass half empty side is that I am booking jobs but I am so ready to work and I don't want them to be cancelled!  (insert sad sad face here)

I know I'm kinda just having a pity party for myself and eventually one of these jobs is going to get to the point of actually doing makeup but so far, not so good.  Now on a more positive note I have landed an internship that I am super excited to tell you all about but I can't quite yet, but when I can don't worry Ill be posting about it and make up and everything in between.

Anyway, I really am done complaining for the night.  I wanted to get online tonight because its been a few weeks since I last posted and I was kinda missing you guys.  I forget how therapeutic it is to blog.  I think it is really just a diary now because I haven't really posted weightless or workout stuff for a while but I have all my balls in the air.  I have been doing better with my diet and exercise (as I blog eating pizza) but I haven't been documenting any of it.  That's the next thing to work on right.

So I'm going to sign off for the night but I wanted to post tonight and kinda vent a little bit but now that I have actually said all that out loud I feel better and realize that I am just having a Debi Downer moment and I'm already over it.

Bonnaroo 2016

Ive been trying to post about Bonnaroo for about 2 weeks now but there were so many pictures and so much to say and I was getting behind on my blog work by not posting Bonnaroo so I decided to do  a post in pictures.

Let me say first, I have never really wanted to go to Bonnaroo because Im more of what you would call "Indoorsy" and I don't camp but my nephew is young and wanted to go and I agreed to take him. I say that and continue to say that I was super excited to go.  A little nervous about the camping part but super excited about the music festival part.  So here is our
