The Year Of The Diamond Cutter

"I’m making one of the biggest commitments at this point to get control of something I haven’t had since 2009… And it’s scary as hell."

The Year Of The Diamond Cutter
A. Bales

I thought about things from the last seven.... Wait eight years now.

Well, the photos will tell you, my weight is like a leaky tire that keeps getting patched… As in, I cannot keep a certain weight for too long. (By the way, I’m totally okay, every professional said I was fine, nothing wrong with me at all). It could be from medication I had to take from battling depression, or going vegetarian for lent (never doing that again)... Or being able to squat over two times my weight then…

If you don’t believe me, here’s photos to prove the issue. I apologize now.

(from top to bottom) 2009- size 2, 110,(right)- 2010, size 5- 120, 2011- size 5, 125

2012- Size 8, 130 Late 2013/Early 2014- size 0, 95 Late 2014- size 3, 112

2015- Size 3/5, 120 2016- Size 2-3, 115

It’s shocking to look back. I literally have been from borderline sickly skinny to considered overweight for my height.

But this year, I’m taking back my control on my weight fluctuation. I’m done dealing with having to buy everything twice because my weight decided to go another direction.

It’s hard to decide what, if any, program to go with when it’s this situation. Weight loss and gain programs- google it, you get pages and pages of programs, people and stories over what works and not… But maintaining one? Haha…. No.

Or yes?

Currently on a WWE/wrestling run, I discovered a former wrestler developed something that does that and much more…..

Google Diamond Dallas Page. His program is third thing you see.

Four stages of programing, strict diet, but results are outstanding. People are more flexible than what they were before in six weeks.

Hell, this saved many former wrestlers from drug addiction, overdose deaths. And some of the big names too.

If they can do it at like 50 years old, I can do it at 21.

I’m making one of the biggest commitments at this point to get control of something I haven’t had since 2009… And it’s scary as hell.

Let’s hope this works.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
