I have been challenged!!

Chuckles...My BF decided it was smart of him to challenge me to get into shape by summer of 2011. Almost with a hint of "if you can" in his voice. *Not so smart for him* I am such a competitor and what he doesn't know is that before he wanted to challenge me on such a thing I had already began to put my plan into place. Hmmph. But I have a secret weapon. Buwahahaaa...~evil laugh~  I want to become vegetarian. I figure I would give it a try and if I didn't like it then I would eat meat again. Well folks, I have been eating only veggie meals for about a week and I gotta say I love it. I love to eat different tasty foods. I have found so many easy to make, low costing, delicious veggie meals that this dude is gonna loose his money. I mean, I started with this because come December 27th I'll be a sexy 30 year old chick and I need to start taking my health seriously. Winning this challenge will be all the more sweeter. ;) I will not loose!

I know I'm following some one's blog who has a wealth of vegetarian meals. I'm going to go look for that now. If any of you guys have suggestions or recipes for a new vegetarian on a shoestring budget, then please share chile! 

Yeah, he smiles now....
come summer time I'll have the waistline, the health, and sheer enjoyment of victory!!
and of course braggin rights! :)

The pic to the right (10 mos)

Oh my gosh! I'm so amazed at the growth between now and at 16 months. This is crazy. I have to make a confession. I am a DIYer and last month I HAD to go to a salon to get my hair retigtened. I kept falling behind. So half of my head had 2 inches of new growth and the other half about .5 inches. Don't laugh. Between working and everyday life, I couldn't find the time to complete my whole head. Smh. Well now I have all of my hair caught up to the same and plan to keep it that way. The salon visit cost me 85 bucks. Ouch!
I will caution those of you who latch or interlock your own locs. This experience of mine cause me to loose 2 locs. The reason why you might ask?  I still play in my hair. I know. Sad but true. By doing so with so much new growth, I would snag my hair at the root causing the base of those locs to become weak. So they popped. No worries. Lesson learned. I now have 2 puffs of hair in those areas, that no one can see, that will grow into healthy locs. 
"Inty" way... enjoy the pics! 
Hope you guys can see the pics well. Y'all know how these camera phones can be :)
