New Blog Design!

So it only took me 3 hours but I finally finished my blog design. The reason it took me so long is because I had absolutely no idea what the heck I was doing. So a few googling here and a lot more googling there I finally was able to get my blog template the way I wanted it. So let me know what you think. I am also on a new health kick. I am trying to lower my sodium intake. I am a huge salt lover and hardly eat any sweets. So I decided to just cut my salt intake in half and see if it will cut down on how much water I would retain. So I am on day two of lowering my salt intake and it has been really hard. The first day wasn't too bad but later that night I just wanted to eat a bunch of salty junk foods and spicy ramen noodles. Your body should have around 2500 mg of sodium a day and if you have high cholesterol your sodium intake should be around 1500 mg per day. So I am trying to have 1500-1800 mg of sodium per day versus the 3000-4000 mg I was previosly getting. I am also trying to drink plenty of water as well.

Guess what!!!??? I am going to Florida in 4 weeks!!! I can't wait. Originally we were supposed to go to see the last scheduled space shuttle launch but it has now been rescheduled for November so I will be going regardless and enjoy a well over due mini vacation. I can't wait! I plan to shop and eat at the finest restaurants and lay on the beach and do absolutely nothing! So since I will be going to Florida and plan on spending majority of my time on the beach I am trying to tone up and get back into my bikini body. I can't wait and I will keep you guys posted.

My Ears are popping!!!

So for the past month my left ear would not stay popped. It was so annoying. For the first week I felt like I had to constantly pop my left ear and that they wouldn't stayed popped. I tried everything. I tried swim ear, ear wax softener and even and ear cleanser. Nothing worked. I did a lot of research online to try and diagnose myself since I just hate going to the doctors office unless I absolutely have to. So I finally thought that it was some kind of habit that I have taught myself to do. It drove in crazy and I would actually try to see how long I could go without popping my left ear. And I would go for quite awhile before I felt like I couldn't hold it in anymore and start popping my ears. The ear started to ache a little. I am assuming from all the ear popping that I had done. So finally a week ago I had had enough and called to make an appointment with my doctor to try and figure out what was going on.

So I just came back from my doctors appointment and they said that I had ear wax build up and that they were going to need to irrigate my ear and flush it out with warm water. They use this huge silver metal contraption and fill it with warm water, tell you to hold a cup what looks like a mini bed pan close to your ear to catch the water when it comes shooting back out of your ear and also give you a cover that looks like the conver gown you get when you go to your stylist to get your hair done. So the first time she did it. I felt a huge pressure of water go shooting into my ear and it felt like I had turn the faucet on directly in my ear. It felt so scary and she told me that nothing had come out. No ear wax that is. So she had to do it again. I remember thinking, Again? I'm scared that was scary enough the first time and then she did it again and again and again. But still no ear wax. So she did it a total of five times before she decided to get the doctor back in to see if the wax was still there. Well she had pushed the wax to the side and on the top part of my ear canal and out of the way of my ear drum. So the doctor could now see my ear drum and she wasn't able to see it before. She told me she found out what was causing my ears to feel like they needed to be constantly popped. The same feeling you get when you are on an airplane or drive through a mountain. Except that I didn't do either or. Well she told me that I had a few bubbles behind my ear drum indicating that I had fluid behind my ear drum, which is caused from having allergies which I had or a cold or sinus infection which also I had had. Well when that occurs your Eustachian tube which helps drain the fluids from your ears was swollen and prevented the fluid from draining and trapped behind my ear drum. So she prescribed me an antibiotic, congestion, antihistamine and some allergy medicine. So I will keep you posted and let you know how I feel later. My doctor told me that it would take about 12 weeks to drain.

Spring Break

So spring break is over. It came and went so quickly. It was a very fun week off from school. I got to catch up on all of my videos. And I got to relax from all my school work. I have started a new video series. The Monthly favorites. If you are not familiar with them it. It is where you take your favorites from the month before and make a video talking about your favorite last months things. It helps people decide what to try if that haven't done so before. I also made a video talking about how to get started on youtube. I started youtube 2 years ago and no subscribers. I now have over 70 videos posted and have over 7,000 subscribers. I just noticed all the 7's. lol. Very cool number. I am having a contest and can't wait to see how that turns out. This will be my biggest contest yet. Well here is my March favorites. Oh, and I almost forgot! I just found out on Easter how to make HD videos!!! So now all of my videos will be in HD. My first HD video didn't turn out so well, but that was because the lighting wasn't that great and that natural light is the best light that you can use. So I can't wait to get started on my next video and see how it turns out. I am super excited! Well again here is my March favorites. Enjoy!

My New Hair Highlights!!!

So I decided to get some highlights to prepare myself for Spring. I went to my Hair Stylist Joy and she highlighted my hair and added a caramel toner to it. A toner is a color. If you have dark hair, you have to get your hair bleached and then add color to it in order to reach your desired color.

Now let me back track you to the beginning of my day....

I woke up and got ready and before I leave the house I like to make sure everything is orderly and organized, which anyone that is big on organizing or O.C.D. knows that it takes forever to leave the house. So I got everything together and got myself ready and breakfast made and was ready to leave the house. So I get in my car and notice that the gas gage is on E. So I had to go back up stairs and get my other debit card and then the phone rings. It was my stylist telling me that I could come in 30 mins early if I wanted. I told her that I would try to make it there before my appointment time but I still had to pick up my friend on the other side of town and then of course stop by Starbucks and asked her if she would like anything from there too. So I then ran back downstairs got in my car and headed off to my friends house. So when I got to her street I had a hard time finding her house. It was my first time coming to her house and for some reason her street was very high traffic and since she told me she lived at the very beginning of the street I had to drive very slowly. And there were 10 cars behind me honking behind me to speed up. Needless to say I passed her house and finally arrived. So when I got there she of course showed me around since I had never been there, and then I decided to record a short video of the before look so I could upload it on youtube later. Well my friend was holding onto my camcorder like it was a baby and her index finger happen to be on the zoom button. So while she was recording me my face kept getting bigger and bigger and bigger and she had no idea why. Wo while she was recording me she started to freaking out and laughing and waved her arms hysterically to wrap it up so I thought the battery was dying so I did. By the way I had thought I had charged the camcorder but apparently I had not. So, I told her that the zoom button is on the top and that her finger was resting on it the whole time. So the ending of the video was cut out since it was mostly my nostrils. It ended up working out since it gave my viewers a close up on the before shot of my hair. So after we were done recording we headed off towards Starbucks and got us some drinks. Well needless to say I got lost on the way to hy hair stylist's Salon. I finally got there and was able to get started on my hair.

So after I had my hair done I get in my car to leave and come to find out my car doesn't start! I ran out of gas!!! Luckily there was a gas station right across the street, so I got to pump gas into my car the old fashion way for the first time and hopefully the last.
