I chose a running path from my hometown’s local community college to depict home for me. This is the place where I learned to love to run. It’s the place where I could find peace, daydream, set goals, chat with friends and develop a love for fitness. It’s a nostalgic place for me.
My exciting day started at about 9:00am in the morning. I made an appointment to go to the Anastasia Beverly Hills Salon for an Eyebrow Shaping appt. and I decided to add in some fitness activity as well.
Sporting my Gel-Kayano 20 Asics today. They are so comfortable for both walking and jogging.
Since my brow appt. wasn’t until 11:00am, I decided to walk around Beverly Hills and sightsee. I turned on my favorite Nike+ Running App to record my mileage. I love this running app because you can see your activity over several months. You can join or create walking/running challenges with your friends. It plays your favorite playlist as you run as well. There is a Coach feature that will create a program to train for a 5K, 10K, 13.1(half marathon) or 26.2 (marathon). You receive motivation throughout your run from your friends or professional runners. A+ for the Nike+ app.
As I walked, I took a couple of pictures of some of the stores on my route.
Finally made it to my destination after a vigorous walk.
My appt. was with Courtney and she did an awesome job of giving me my first professional eyebrow shaping.
My morning ended with a nice breakfast at the Roxbury Dr. Cafe.
Later on that day I decided to go by Walgreens Drugstore to see what new cosmetics were available.
I picked up a few of the new items from the Covergirl Queen Collection.
CC Creams in the colors: Sheer Expresso and Golden Honey
Queen Collection Colorlicious Gloss: Copper Bliss, Lush Lavendar, Million Dollar Mocha
Also decided to purchase the Babyskin Instant Pore Eraser
Put it all together for a Sassy New Years look!

I usually use this brand of curry sauce to make all of my curry dishes. In the past I’ve made Curry Tofu and Veggies. Today I used shrimp to make a delicious pescatarian meal.
1 box of curry sauce mix
1-2 lbs of raw shrimp (de-vein)
2 large russet potatoes
1 white onion
1-2 tbs minced garlic
2-3 tbs of oil (olive or canola)
3-31/2 cups of water
steamed brown or white rice
Dice up russet potatoes and carrots.
Wash shrimp. I thawed frozen shrimp which were already de-veined.
Chop up a white onion and add 1 tbs of minced garlic to 2 tbs of oil (olive, canola, etc.). Sauté until onions are translucent (4-5 minutes).
Add potatoes and carrots and 1 1/2 cup of water to pot. Add 1/2 of the curry brick and stir. Heat for about 20 minutes or until potatoes and carrots start to get tender.
Add another 1 1/2 cups of water and the other half of the curry brick. Stir until curry brick is dissolved. Add shrimp. Add another 1/2 cup of water. Cook until the shrimp are bright pink (8-10 minutes)
Serve with steamed brown or white rice.

I’ve given up on New Year’s Resolutions. Mostly because I never keep them. So, I will set better solutions for myself. Since I spent last Monday at the doctor’s office, I now recognize that I had neglected my health this past year.
I went in to see my doctor and found out that I was completely dehydrated. I really just didn’t notice that I was not drinking enough water.
So, I decided to go out and get some water bottles to remind me to drink water throughout the day.

2015 will also require more juicing for healthier skin and energy. Great green juice!
My current natural hair products are working very well for me. I can’t live without my Apple Cider Vinegar, Kinky Curly Leave-In (not pictured). I revisited the Camille Rose Deep Conditioner. I’m still not sure if I like it. But, I did like the Camille Rose Curl Maker. Loving it!
Tonight’s dinner was delicious. I cooked! Yay!!!!! Baked Tilapia with butter, garlic and chives. White rice and a caesar salad as sides. Delicious!
Dessert- Hot cocoa with whipped cream and sugar free chocolate
I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year and Good Health in 2015.

I’ve been away for so long. Just got caught up in working. But, I’m back. I’m looking forward to blogging about my recipes, cooking, fitness, and any other thing that comes to mind. Its great to be back up and going strong.
