My name is Sam and I'm a 25 year old lazy girl from Ohio, hoping to turn myself into a hottie before it's too late! I currently work 3 jobs while I try to find my place in the working world. It's hectic and a little discouraging at times but I would love to use a blog to gather a community of friends and followers to help motivate and inspire me to live a better, more fulfilled life!

A glossary of beings you may read about here:
Chaz - Chaz is my hilarious, talented, smart, and cute boyfriend fiancé! We live together in a cute little apartment with our two cats! We have been together for three years (got engaged on our 3 year anniversary!) and are as happy as clams.

Weezer & Pixel - Our two cats! We had a dog for two weeks but things didn't work out with her so we thought it would be best to give her back to the animal shelter we adopted her from :( So we searched for a while and decided we wanted to adopt two Maine Coon brother cats, who we named Pixel and Weezer. Pixel has a black dot on his face like a pixel on a screen, so Chaz (n3rd) named him. I called Weezer "Lil' Weezy" one day and am not fond of Lil' Wayne but was fond of the name, so his true name became Weezer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you follow back?
Most likely, yes! Please feel free to ask me to check out your blog. My mission with my own blog is mainly to make friends, so don't be shy!

When did you start blogging?
I actually have been blogging for a lot of my life, off and on. It started mainly with XANGA! Do you remember Xanga?! Xanga got me hooked on the internet and hooked on doing layouts and web design. I haven't done that stuff in a long time, so this layout is from someone else with lots of tweaking from myself, sadly :( Maybe someday I will start making my own again; I do miss it!

Why don't you talk about ______?
I try to talk about as much as I can think of but if you have suggestions for things I should review or check out and blog about, please be sure to leave a comment or send me an email: simple.little.something@gmail.com
I am always looking for new challenges and new things to try!

What do you do besides blogging?
I work for a concert venue production company where I post on their Facebook page about all of the upcoming concerts. I also work at a small grocery market a few days a week and have been there for almost 4 years! I enjoy Netflix, snuggling with my boyfriend and kitties, doing crafts, sudoku, playing video games, riding bikes, eating chocolate, and being lazy most of the time, whoops!

What brought you to Blogspot/Blogger?
Xanga seems to be dead these days and I wanted a place where I feel like my posts wouldn't get lost quickly (like they do on Tumblr) but that was active enough and widely accepted on many other people's blogs so I could hopefully get some exposure to other blogs and hopefully bring traffic to my own!

What else should we know about you?
I try to have an open mind most of the time and I am open to new things and new people. I type A LOT sometimes instead of getting to the point quickly, which can be annoying. I am definitely still a kid at heart so my posts could very easily be Pokemon or Adventure Time related if I so please! But most of all, I would love to be your friend!

Let's Begin Now.

It has begun! I am finished dog sitting and was able to get back home early enough to have mom take my official beginning measurements. She wasn't too serious about it, so I'm sure they aren't as accurate as they could or should be, but close enough is good for me. This is an officially unofficial workout blog, after all. Below (soon) is an Excel sheet that I will hopefully keep updated with my measurements each week. I have not mentioned my goals yet, which I am still trying to think about and trying to dwindle down to something obtainable. We all have weight loss dreams, but I believe it's important to be honest with yourself from the get-go and try to evaluate your goals and make them reasonable enough for YOU, not for those who may be motivating you or who you may be trying to impress. Start out little and slow and work your way to awesome. If you hurt yourself at the beginning then you can't continue, then you're REALLY defeating the purpose.

So, tonight I am starting out on the elliptical because the rain always makes my back hurt, so low impact will be just fine. Below is what the set up of our elliptical machine looks like, although there are more buttons on the other side, but I will work up to those ones.

Tonight (as I type this, to be exact) I am doing the Weight Loss 1 button on the side. It is 30 minutes of progressive incline. The levels are 2 - 4 - 6, each with more resistance than the last for about 2 minutes each, and then the 6 goes back to 2, and so on. I'm at 100 calories so far! I think I will do this for 2 weeks, as many times as I can each week. And then go to Weight Loss 2 for 2 weeks and so on until I can work up to the buttons that say things like "Performance" "Aerobics" etc on the other side.
The elliptical machine is upstairs, which is awesome because my dad has a theater up here and my Wii is hooked up with Netflix AND I have 2 more seasons of Skins [UK] to watch, so I am definitely excited to be doing all of this and having something to pass the time quickly and make it not seem like a workout at all. First night's result post coming up later!
