Every color under the rainbow

I really do love all colors, I think that is why rainbows are so perfect!
We celebrated a birthday last night so I decided to make one of those rainbow cakes I kept seeing around on pinterest.  I have to be honest it was a pain to make but the final result is well worth it.
Happy Birthday Nat!!!!

Started on this rainbow ripple blanket a little while back.  I really need to find some extra time to finish is up.

So many little bits of rainbow colors are all around my room.

Working on my fitness

I'm loving on some gadgets these days especially when it comes to fitness/weightloss/diet junk.  I seem to rationalize my purchases by convincing myself that they will motivate me to keep going.  When they do it's a nice little surprise.

This handy thing tells me how out of shape I am currently.  I'm still getting use to it and learning all the little gizmos it can do.  So far I love it!

Hey do you see that?  My pants are too big and are being held up by a safety pin....I hate belts.  I know they are all the rage these days but I just can't stand wearing them.  

Since I was trying on clothes I thought I would give super skinny jeans a shot.  I wasn't impressed by how big they made my thighs look.  The only good thing about them was they fit my butt, which in case you didn't know I don't have one.  I blame it on the asian genes because it surely didn't come from my puerto rican side.  Most of the time it looks like I'm carrying a load in my pants because my pant size to booty ratio is waaaaay off.  I think I will give the skinnys another shot in a few weeks when my thighs have shrunken a bit.  If anyone can recommend a good brand/style of these types of jeans I'd appreciate it.  Preferably something that will make my ass look like I could back that thing up!!!!

In the end you really can't lose weight and look good without exercising.  Everyone wants that number on the scale to go down, down, down but what good is a number if you're a flabby blob.  

Oh, and for the record I am doing weight watchers online.  It's definitely working and I highly recommend it.  If you're on Instagram search and add the tag #igwwclub
