Moving on up!

Hello Lovelies!

Not sure if any of you are still around really but figured I would let you all know that I have moved on to wordpress for my blogging needs. I got really tired of blogspot sending me a ton of spams and such. Plus I love the way wordpress is setup and I was always having issues with my photos on blogspot. 

Anyway, Here's my new blog: The Ramblings of Kaytee . I hope you all can come check it out and follow. I would really appreciate it. Eventually I might update this blog and/or start over and try something new. Enough rambling. Go. Check. Out. My. New. Blog! :D

Moving on

Hi Dolls!!

Sorry it's been awhile since I last posted. I've been busy with relationship drama and just everyday life. I'm sad to inform that I might close this blog down. It's gone from beauty blog to everything blog and I think I'm ready to close it and move onto a new blog on wordpress. Trouble is, I can't pick a new name. I'm not in a creative mood. Would anyone like to list off some suggestions?

Happy 4th of July - Day After

How was everyone's 4th of July? Hope it was a blast and you all got to eat some good food and see some great fireworks. My day was spent curled up in bed sick to my stomach. I know, what a great way to spend the 4th of July. I did however, get caught up on my sleep. That was the only perk of the day really.

Around 7:30pm the boyfriend and I headed over to our friends house to meet up and then go watch some fireworks. The original plan was to go downtown and watch them from the rooftop. That plan got changed to going to the beach and bar hopping. We carpooled down to the beach to go to the Strand (shopping area). The whole area was really dark and there was no one around. I should have guessed that they would all be at the beach waiting for the fireworks. Yup, we headed that way and there was nothing but traffic and about a million people parked everywhere! I did happen to get a few shots of the fireworks from the car but we weren't able to pull over anywhere and park. We continued on down the street and stopped at Denny's. We decided to try to walk to the boardwalk but that was a failed attempt because it was about 1 mile down the road and one of my friends was wearing heels.  We turned around and decided to just eat at Denny's and hang out there for a bit. I think we left Denny's at 11pm or maybe a little later. It took us till 1am to finally get home. It's only a 35 minute drive from our house to Galveston but the traffic was horrible. We will never do that again.

I did get a really cute picture yesterday of my baby girl.

 This girl loves her mouse!! Best investment ever was getting her some toy mice. She absolutely loves them. I do really need to clip her claws though. Look at that one!! It's long!

Well hope you all enjoyed your 4th!!

Finally Hit My Goal!

I made it to 10.93 miles!!! As many of you know, as stated in my last post, my goal was to eventually hit 10 miles. Well, I finally did it. On June 7, at 7:07pm, I rode 10.93 miles. My average speed was 8.66 mph. I ended up burning 418 calories and completing my ride in an hour and 15 minutes. Not too shabby!

Of course the next night I didn't do as well. Let's just say.. I know why bikers were the spandex shorts with the padding on the butt. Yes, my butt was sore and so were my legs. That's why my next days ride was only 2.93 miles.

After having not ridden in a few days from recovery, I decided to get back out there and try to get my miles up again. I managed to get a nice little 5 mile ride in with the boyfriend. This time we ventured out of the apartment complex and rode down the street and on a little path.

Luckily it wasn't super hot out. It was quite enjoyable. We only rode for 33 minutes because my feet like to go numb when I'm riding but really I think it's because I've been wearing vans to ride in and those are not good for riding bikes or working out in period! So never ever workout in vans! They have no support. I'm actually looking into getting a pair of workout shoes for riding in and walking. Not only for working out really but also to use when I go on my Las Vegas trip. I'll be there walking around for 4 days!! Must have comfortable shoes!!! haha

Anyway, tonight I plan on doing at least a 5 mile ride. I might venture out of the apartment complex tonight and ride around the neighborhood. Who knows. Does anyone else ride? I'd love to hear about your bike and your experiences. Do share below in a comment!!

I have really white legs and that's always been my problem with working out and especially when I go to wear shorts. I hate it but my legs never tan. Oh well.

Action Shot!!

Just my "I'm riding and this is my riding face" picture. I like to listen to music while I ride because it makes the time go by faster and gets my mind off of watching the clock.

All finished with my ride!!! I hope you all are doing well and enjoy my posts [ only because I never hear from anyone..just want to make sure you all are alive out there ]. 

It's 4:31pm here and it's almost time for me to be off work and heading home to ride. Toodles!!

New Adventures and Such...

Time to get back into the swing of things [blogging that is!]. It's been so long that I've actually been constant with blogging that it's rather sad. I'll try my best to get on here every few days and update you all.

There are definitely going to be some big changes happening soon in my life. I'll keep you all updated on that when the time comes.

As for now, I've really been into bike riding and even though I haven't really ridden all that much [due to work] I'm still really into it and want to make it a fun hobby or well, you know activity. I've been waiting months upon months for my bike to finally be finished and now it is! Blake [boyfriend] finished it about two weeks ago and I'm totally in love with my bike. Wait, can you be in love with a bike? Wow that sounds weird. Okay..I really like my bike, it fits me well.


I love my bike!!!! It's such a joy to ride it. It's been years that I've ridden a bike and it feels great to be back on one! Do any of you ride?

The first day I rode, I ended up riding almost 4 miles. That was just around the apartment complex. It wore me out! I'm so out of shape. It was great getting back into it because I've missed it and it'll be nice getting into shape again. About three nights ago the boyfriend, his mom and I went out riding and we didn't ride as far as I would have liked but we did get in 3 miles. I could have went further but his mom was tired and his headset on his bike was loose. 

My goal is to try to get on my bike every night and ride up to 5 miles. I know 5 miles isn't really anything toward getting back into shape but I've gotta take baby steps. I want to start with 5 miles and then work up to 10 miles a night and then later on do more.

I've also been following Katie's Blog [ Same name as me :) ]. She bike rides, runs and is just leading a healthy lifestyle and I have become more motivated thanks to stumbling upon her blog. She gives great advice on what foods to eat and about her journey to lose weight. If you feel like following her go for it! She's awesome!

As I conclude this entry, I hope you all are having a fantastic day! Remember to stay positive and strive to accomplish your goals! I'll be back tomorrow to post more on my progress through creating a healthy lifestyle...slowly but surely!

Xoxo Katieeeeee

Questionnaire Day!

1.) Mood:
I'm in a cranky mood this morning. I just think with all of the stress I'm under that my mood lately is just cranky.

2.) Did you do anything fun this weekend?
This weekend was spent mainly sleeping. The internet is shut off at the house so I haven't really been that connected to the world as normal. I did manage to get a ride in (bicycle) which was nice but my stomach was killing me this weekend and didn't really do anything else.

3.) What is the closest object to you that is pink?
My pink call message sheets. [I'm at work]

4.) Current nail polish:
Nothing. I need to get back into painting my's been so long!

5.) If you could snap your fingers and be anywhere in the world right now, where would you go?
I'd probably be in Australia or maybe just California would be nice.

6.) Current outfit:
Vans, Old Navy jeans, old navy turquoise tank top, Joplin Harley Davidson shirt.

7.) What is the last movie you saw in theaters?
The Avengers -- Best movie ever!!!! I love me some Thor :)

8.) If you could only be one age for the rest of your life, which would you choose, and why?
I think I'd like to just stay 25. It's a nice age and yeah..not much else I can say lol.

9.) When is the last time you played on a swing set?
Probably almost 3 years ago and a little girl told me I was too fat to be on it. There went my esteem -_-

10.) Weekly goals:
I have a lot of weekly goals now actually. One of them is to start eating better [I guess this is more of a on going goal], ride my bike at least 3-5 miles a day and then move up from there. And also start looking for a new job. I'm really tired of my job and underpaid.
