Six Word Saturday + Fitness and Makeup mini hauls


Went to Foxwoods, had a blast!!
I spoiled myself with a couple of frosted donuts!
This week I had fun. I went to Foxwoods for two days. For Bear's job they were holding a conference so I joined in for the trip. The first day before we headed out I returned my due library books. The procrastinator in me didn't get interested in them until the last minute. I'm going to recheck out the for dummies books though. I found them to be better than expected. The Micro business book gives you pretty good ideas for a side hustle/ part time business.
At Foxwoods,  I didn't do much but chill in the lobby while waiting for Bear to come get me. I even took a nap but was woken by the security guard asking me if I was okay,lol. I watched some anime on my phone and then went to the restroom to get ready for the evening.
Initially our plans were to go the conference dinner together but we ended up going to Golden Dragon instead. I had Beef Chow Fun and he had Mongolian Beef. My entree was the best. It was great so I would order it again. However ,his Mongolian Beef didn't suit my tastes. I think the red onions they used gave it a different flavor that I didn't like. The service was great but for the steep price for Chinese food I probably wouldn't go back again the exception would be if I really , really, really wanted some Chinese food and I as uber super grouchy and didn't want to search for another Chinese restaurant .
Beef Chow Fun top left, Mongolian Beef Top Right. 
After dinner we went to The California Pizza Kitchen to get pumpkin cheesecake. We looked out the takeout menu and was disappointed that we ate at Golden Dragon. I didn't know that The California Pizza Kitchen had pasta entrees!! I would have opted to eat there if I knew that. The only reason why I disregarded the pizza place in the first place was because the first time I went there I had a pizza and didn't like it all. Oh well we know better next time!!
The hotel room, lovely isn't it?
Our room's restroom.
[[The Grand Peqout hotel is lovely. I love the color scheme of the rooms and lodging hallways. It's blues, greys and white. It's very serene. I forgot to take a picture of the television, mirror and storage furniture. ]]

When I arrived back at the room after dinner, I had a great nap. I woke up and a couple minutes later Bear called me about going to the club downstairs. I took a bath in the deep tub and before I know it Bear was already settled in. The expression on his face let me know he was sleepy although he was denying it. I still had a lovely evening despite me not going out. It was nice that we ended up laying in the bed and talking about his day.
Friday, I woke up and decided to wear yoga pants. I kinda find it funny how they are separated from leggings in labeling when they essentially the same thing. After check out I chillled in the lobby of MGM  until lunch. I played a few slots with Bin , ate lunch  and then after his last meeting we left Foxwoods. We went to Marshalls and got some stuff. I saw Betsey Johnson bag that I wanted but I decided to get my dumbbells instead!! The kettlepot is a bonus. Even though I didn't get the purse I'm happy nonetheless! After Marshalls he changed his oil to his garage and then we traveled home.
Friday was Yoga pants day for me,lol.
Purchased from Marshalls
Got this at Walgreens! :D
I've been wanting some brown eyeliner for my brows and Revlon Colorstay Toast foundation for a while. The Loreal foundation I use is great but I like the full coverage that Colorstay provides.

Six Word Story

six word story recidivism
For today's six word story I use wordsmith.org's word of the day recidivism. I was trying to imply person who habitually cheated on their partner which eventually broke up their family. I used to the lipstick kiss stamps to try and imply the six word story is related to something sensual.

Healthy diet may reduce risk of severe depression - Graphic


How was a healthy diet defined?
A healthy diet characterized by vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, poultry, fish and low-fat cheese was associated with a lower prevalence of depressive symptoms and a lower risk of depression during the follow-up period.
Increased intake of folate was also associated with a decreased risk of depression. Vegetables, fruits, berries, whole-grains, meat and liver are the most important dietary sources of folate. In addition, increased coffee consumption was non-linearly associated with a decreased risk of depression." - sciencedaily.com

What is folate?
Folate is a water-soluble B vitamin that is found naturally in some foods, added to others. The synthetic form, folic acid can be taken as a dietary supplement.

Time to Workout - Anime Quote - Video

Morgiana from Magi Anime Quote
So I have been watching Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic lately. At first I overlooked the anime because I thought it was going to be too kiddish for me. Surprisingly I am loving it. It can be a tad sad once you actually absorb some of events that take place in spite of that it has it's funny moments as well. They also have premises and messages through out the series that compliment the nature of the Aladdin's naivete. This makes it enjoyable because I found myself reflecting on if I agreed or not with the subtle messges. I don't have a definite favorite character yet but I have been fan girl crushing on Sinbad!

I'm using this graphic today because it's just awesome. I have been working out and have noticed the change in my body but I'm not done yet. I know I can get even better. I know I can push myself even more. If you have been reading for a while you know I have fibroids. Soon I will schedule a doctor's appointment to discuss how I can get closer to my goal since I am totally ignorant about it. I have read how fibroids can cause a bulging belly so this worries me even though I know my body is getting toned I want my belly to say it as well!!!

Today's Video is Gaiam's Wakeup Workout Ultimate Power Yoga
This video was refreshing. I thought it was going to be faster paced but it isn't (and I'm not complaining!) I usually do not like yoga videos on Hulu because of the commercials, some of them I can not understand what they are saying and/or I'm just not into their method. I felt good afterwards. It was nice. I would do again.

 What I recommend for this video:
  • Space to stretch out your whole body vertically and horizontally laying down. I didn't have enough space so I ended up modifying and moving to compensate.
  • Yoga mat.
  • About 25 Mins because of commercials.
If the video can't be viewed in your country I recommend you check out Time to Workout! - Motivational Quote- Thank you Inspiring Thing for Today's Video post.

I'm going to post the referral message below just in case you want to join Hulu plus. ;-)

Six Word Story

For today's six word story I use wordsmith.org word of the day tumid.

Writing Challenge:

My Confession and Tips on How NOT to Be a Health Troll

  I have been blogging about exercising and I have been trying to be sensitive on not fat shaming. I shamefully admit that years ago I used to be a "health troll".  Now you are probably asking yourself what is a health troll. Well here you go this is the best definition I could muster up...

A health troll is a person who pretends to be or is concerned about another person/s health and reaches out to them with their concerns even though they are not a doctor and are most likely regurgitating information about health they have been socialized to believe that support biases against fat people. Note: A person can be health troll against a thin person as well.

Yeah, I'm writing about it too : Reflecting on Maria Kang's the now infamous pic

So you might be tired of hearing about Maria Kang and her infamous picture but I'm going to address it. It's my blog and I just have to let it out.

As you might know, I write my Time to Workout posts to motivate me to keep working out, I do understand that they are public and other people might read them so I try to be as sensitive as I can be . When I saw the articles about this lady last week and it took me a while to find the words of my feelings about this. If she was asking me personally I have no excuse. I have the time, health and energy to workout and so I do it. .
When I saw the picture although I thought great she is accomplishing her fitness goals even with being a mom but on the other hand I was uneasy. I was uneasy because what it implies. That if you don't look like her you have an excuse of why and by golly she has three young children and she gets it done. An excuse is negative word which is why it's so offensive. An excuse implies that it's just an illegitimate reason that someone uses to put off what they need to do. That's what I don't like about the picture. I know the excuses I have used but I can't speak for every one else.

Six Word Story

Although the word used was 'in silico' because it looks like two words I treated it as two words to lessen confusion.
