Jupiter Going Into Leo In July - Cancer Outlook

Cancer Jupiter Special Horoscope July 2014 to August 2015 by Nadiya Shah

Sounds pretty positive so I'm pretty pumped.  Jupiter in my sign this last year definitely expanded my sense of self (which is what it does when it is in the 1st house) but boy was it tough to get there with Pluto/Uranus squares, etc.!  Hoping for the money to expand this coming year for my sign.  I definitely need it! 

Big Brother 16 - Season Premiere Part 1

So my most favorite of all my favorite shows just started last night! Big Brother! YAY!

Welcome back, Julie...long time no see!

Here are all the houseguests. We only saw the first 8 of them last night and we'll see the next 8 tonight.


So it started out with 8 houseguests entering the house. They all introduce themselves. Amber is super jealous of her! Cody and Paola are totally going to get together. Devin looks like "The Rock" and I'll probably continue to call him that. lol Amber likes The Rock but The Rock likes the blue haired girl, Joey. Odd I must say but we all like what we like I guess. lol Donny reminds me of Forrest Gump. I love him already! Frankie seems like he'll be super entertaining (and Paola will as well I'm sure). They're both already cracking me up. Nicole has a quirky sense of humor. I feel like I'm a mix of Donny and Nicole as far as my personality goes. We'll meet the other 8 houseguests tonight.

Anyways, after they were in the house for a bit, they decided to have each other's backs (sort of form an alliance). Then The Rock and Donny decided to form a secret 2 person alliance (The Rock approached Donny about it). Then the girls decided to form an all-girls alliance - we'll see how long that lasts but I think it would be pretty cool to see all girls at the end.

Then it was time for the first HoH competition. It was pretty cool - it was a beach scene. Since I'm moving to Jacksonville, it reminded me of the beach I'll be seeing soon! They basically hold on to a rope (that was a kite) and tried to stay on this rolling thing. Frankie ended up winning after Amber threw it! I couldn't believe she threw it. NOT what I would have done for sure. I think the first HoH is the most important because everyone tries to be your friend and everyone gets to know you right away. But what do I know!

She basically threw it because of the 'twist' which I still don't understand yet. There will be two HoHs...but the HoHs aren't safe? Confusing. And then they have another twist of 'Team America'. What is that! I guess it is three people who work for us (America). MAN! I wish they would have chosen me for this show! (I applied to be on.) I would have LOVED working for America. So that will be interesting.

So that is about it. We get to see part 2 tonight and another HoH competition (see the sneak preview HERE). The live feeds also start tonight so I'll be watching that constantly. I haven't decided yet whether to post spoilers on my page or not. But if I do, I'll post a big (SPOILERS) in the heading.

Anyways, have a good Thursday!!!

Big Brother - Episode 2 (Preview)

That was a little sneak peak of tonight's show.  I'll probably post my thoughts on last night's premiere later on today.  LOVE BIG BROTHER!

5 Months Zero Carb!

Today marks 5 months being zero carb.  I'm still around 105lbs but inching closer to 104lbs.  I'm pretty skinny with just probably weight to lose around my trouble areas (hips/stomach area) although that isn't even bad. 

I eat probably 1.5lbs of fatty beef a day plus a chicken breast fried in beef lard.  On the weekends, I might add about a pound of stew meat (steak basically) or another chicken breast to the normal weekday beef/chicken deal.  Ok, I eat a lot.  LOL  Doesn't matter though.

I got a new scale that I get to review and I'll post that on my blog sometime soon.  Here's what it looks like:

It is pretty cool.  I actually had a snazzy scale before but this one is definitely better.  It told me my muscle percentage was 33%!  Normal for women is between 28% to 39%.  And I haven't worked out in almost 3 months.  Not bad.  I'll tell you the rest of my numbers when I do my review.

And don't forget - Big Brother premieres tonight!  YAY!

What Was I Doing 10 Years Ago?

I just was reading BlogHer and it made me ask myself what in the world was I doing 10 years ago?  My memory is awful but I thought of a few things.

I graduated with my Bachelors in Science Degree (Magna Cum Laude).

Here I am with my friend Kelly who also graduated then, too.

I don't know if you can tell from the pic but I had braces, too.  I got those off I think in 2005 maybe? 

In 2004, I was working for a Government contractor.  It was a pretty decent job but I knew there was no stability nor any upward mobility really so eventually I left in 2005.

I also drove my 2002 Ford Ranger XLT...awww how cute!

I also remember running with my friend Kelly (same one pictured above) and Belinda (a coworker of mine).  I could not keep up with those two! 

That is about all I remember! haha

Where were you 10 years ago?

Big Brother - Meet The Houseguests of Big Brother 16

This is the video of the new houseguests for Big Brother 16.  Big Brother is my most favorite show of ALL time!!!!  So expect tons more posts throughout the summer!

I actually applied to be on the show this year but I'm glad I didn't get on because I probably would have fallen for 'player' Caleb (10 years my junior, too).  And reading the bios (check them out HERE), they actually have a carbon copy of me in the house - except he's a guy!  Donny!

So for right now I'm rooting for him and a couple others.  I'll probably do a blog post later on who are my favs so far.

Cancer July 2014 Angel Oracle Card Reading

Pretty encouraging for us Cancerians.  I really resonated with "New Beginnings" and "Dreams" (coming true) and "Celebration."  I'm starting my new job at the end of July and moving to Jacksonville, FL.  I'll be close to a couple of my good friends and right by the ocean (Cancerians are a water sign).  Plus, it is my birthday month so I'll be celebrating that and probably celebrating getting out of Omaha and being around my peeps once again!  July looks good.

Daily Meditation - Manifesting With Visualization

She does relatively short meditations so I like listening to hers daily.  Quick and easy but I think pretty effective.

Me Meditating

Thought this picture was so relatable and funny.  I am one that can't seem to get past the 'Shhhh..."ing part.  Haha...

John Edward's Day 7: Spirituality

John Edward is doing a 90 day video series about meditation, all things spirituality, etc.  This is good stuff.  So I thought I'd try to post the link to it every day on my blog.  The videos are normally about 5-6 minutes long so it takes no time at all to watch them and they really sort of rejuvenate you.  Today's video is about spirituality.  Just click the link here:  Welcome to the 90 Day Evolution
