i'm sorry i haven't been too active on here in the last week or so.. i went to the beach last wednesday and had a blast.. however, i ended up learning a very big lesson.. never again will i lay out on the beach with anything less than spf 50 on my face. i had spf 20 on and that i was good, seeing how i mean, it's MAY.. not july.. but no, i was ignorant, and ended up with wicked sun poisoning. i am just starting to feel/look normal again today. i've been slathering on this heavy, organic, vitamin E moisturizer to help with the peeling and hopefully prevent scaring but seriously, THE WORST sunburn i've ever had in my life, and that is really pretty bad because i'm 26 and it is completely unacceptable for me to have allowed this to have happened. i feel ridiculous. and i was in a lot of pain for the last couple of days. besides that tho, i've been very busy.. enjoying the warm spring weather, hanging with friends, going on dates with my friend's cousin (who is amazing!) and just staying focused on my results. aiming to get down to 140 in the next month. placed an order for some new protein online today and i can't wait for it to come in. been feelin pretty comfortable in my own skin which is so nice. lol. anyway, hope all of you are well! can't believe we're starting the 2nd week of May already! craziness! let's do work!!!!!

much love,
