💃So Were Back…

Continuing about how I had such a long week and one thing that wasn’t put on the back burner. I spent lots of time with a friend of mine that I met in french class. He loves to cook but he eats a strict diet. Sounds crazy but what I enjoy about that is that his clean eating habits doesn’t mean you eat rabbit food all day. My interpretation is that you enjoy the natural untainted elements of food. Of course you think, oh it cost a lot to eat this way but I actually does not. I spent less eating clean then I did eating heavy and fat.

Last couple of weeks I stopped dairy. I wont lie, I’ve had a few things that have had dairy, like Indian food, or this cream sauce that they had in the food at my mom’s book signing and I can’t forget about the few flings I’ve had with butter. However, this week I’ve accomplished one good thing, reading labels. My philosophy is, If i cant make it at home or pick it then I cant eat it. For example, preservation or coloring in the product means Alex isn’t eating that.

 

Homemade hummas, sardines, and lots of veggies

 

I been thinking about my weight,health and staying happy. When I eat good food it makes me happy. Eating healthy makes me happy and light. yes at 316 I feel light on my feet. My ankles don’t bother me like before. Now that I am off the prednisone and I’m functioning with out my anti-inflammatory medication, I’ve been happier and stable. So when I eat my food I want it to make me happier. The only thing is that bothers me are my knees but with exercise hopefully they will get better. My poor knees.

But on to another week. My goal is to make money and get fit. So gym bound and I’ll still working both jobs. HAVE TO GET READY FOR FLORIDA!

Stay Positive and Fabulous

THANKS FOR READING.

Gosh I’m Messed UP!!!

Failure will never overtake me if my determination is strong enough

Ong Mandino

Today I literally woke up in the middle of my bed between lazy and motivated. I can honestly tell you when my feet touched the ground I found my self on the wrong side of the bed, the lazy side. Smh… It totally sucked when I feel this way. It makes me feel bad. My goal today was to wake up and take a stroll around the block, eat a healthy breakfast and then relax before work at 2 pm.So today wasn’t my strongest.

  
   

So what will I do to change…?

Well first I need to set a goal, my goal is to feel healthy.That sounds stupid but sometimes feeling healthy will get you there.

I am a model now so I have got to start acting like it.  Just being a plus size model holds its own stigma behind it because people thing we sit and eat all day… Then put on clothes. No thats not me, So i need to start acting like it. I’m not on a WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY but a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE JOURNEY. I cant allow my past illness to stop me from living a fullfilling life. So today I’m putting on my determinaton boots and I’m climbing this mountain.

Okay I’m ending my rant today.

I want to help someone else and help myself.

Bienvenue!

In the words of Ms. Monroe

Hello Honeys…

My name is Alexandria from Houston, Tx baby.

Yaaas! Okay I’m doing to much. So Just call me Alex. I’m new to the modeling game, I’m in love with clothes and I’m a professional home cook. And for my fellas out there, “Im beautiful and domestic”(wink).

As I stated before I am starting out in the fashion industry as a Plus size model. Modeling I have something I’ve always wanted to do and I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have been given to get starting. I’ve learned so much about the plus size community and also just learning about myself.

It’s crazy because a year ago I was so afraid to do anything because of a lack of confidence and will power. I had gained 70 pounds from being ill and it took away alot of my confidence. A few months ago something came over me and said “STOP DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE?” and ever since then I asked myself the same thing every morning. And my answer back is physical and mental, through working out, telling myself “I AM BEAUTIFUL”, and just being positive.

What I would hope for my blog to allow people to take a look into my lifestyle. I did not want to fully categorize my blog because I want everything to be put on the table as far as fashion, food, modeling, and even love. Hopefully my journey will help someone else as well as help myself. So thank you in advance for reading… WELCOME!
