laranovales Today's meals:
Breakfast: 2 eggs
Lunch : banana smoothie (just three bananas and ice and some water, no milk, no sugar, no nothing)
Dinner: grilled chicken breast on a bed of lettuce and a side of mixed veggies.
The chicken breast fillet was marinated in lemon juice, cumin, freshly ground black pepper, and cayenne pepper. I placed them all on a bowl and mixed it into a paste before I basted the chicken with it. Turned on the grill and cooked it until it was cook just right on both sides. NO OIL. It's so juicy and tender and yummy heeheehee! I missed cooking my own food, I just wish there were more veggie options here in Bacolod... Like spinach for example. I'd love to have some spinach around to munch on and make delicious spinach smoothies and the likes. ^_^

laranovales Of all the times, why does my insecurities have to bubble and surface right now? It is a bad time to be feeling this way. Yes I am human and I am susceptible to these things too. It usually happens when I am mentally, physically and emotionally drained. It's a horrible feeling because the self loathing and hate is there. *sigh* 5d

laranovales W.I.P. Ragyo's shawl. Manually traced, cut, textured and attached metal boning on each individual cloth feather. Made over a hundred right now and I still am lacking about 400 more. Slow and steady wins the race. I havnt slept yet for 24 hours now. But it is worth it. Will post more updates of the shawl soon

Valencia Lara Novales
laranovales From 141lbs (I captioned the photo wrong nhuhuhuhu) down to 130lbs in 68 days was no easy task. But I did it. 1st pit stop DONE!! Now it is time to work on the next steps which I think it's the hardest.
I've always been to-young with my diet but now with fitness I'm happy that this is more of a permanent change .
So I'm sharing with you guys my before and current photo.
I'm still far from my goal but I am so much closer today than am when I started. ^_^

laranovales The band base isn't stable yet so I have to make some readjustments. I've pretty much bucked the paint so maybe after I attach the other pieces I'll remove some of the scales again and then repaint it and then test it out again. If it works then it will be time for a....... MAKEUP TRIAL!!!! 1mon

laranovales Finally bought the metallic blue spray paint so I can finally finish this baby. The scales I will be attaching after everything is done becuSe my scales has this beautiful sheen and shine to it. It would be a shame to spay it over. My mirajane demonhalphas version is going to be slightly different than the render in the anime. I want her to be a bit more vibrant, shiny (in some areas). So after this coat of blue I will be spritz ing in some silver/chrome to lessen the intensity of the blue. there were several renders of her and I loved that one that was richer blue and metallic silver. Yes I'm going to make her metallic. Way. Super excited to finish this cos. 1mon

laranovales One of my goals in life and for Kawaii fitness is to launch a gym/fitness/active apparel line that is not only kawaii but also geeky and otaku-ish to help bring smiles and ice breakers at the gym and of course to look super fabulous! Gym clothes doesn't have to be just black and boring (I wear colorful tees at the gym). I find that having nice clothes at the gym can help boost workout productivity. (Unless you take too many selfies on the floor heeheehee). I guess there is nothing wrong with gym OOTD right?
Should I start planning this now and gathering my factors of production then my expected date of launch for kawaii fitness is within the next 5 years. ^_^
What do you guys think? (Ps. I drew that chibi of me. Lol hahahaha I suck at drawing! But I find her too cute though.)

laranovales Well some of you guys were asking my via DM about what the whole make up looked like during the event. It isn't anything special. Just your standard anime bishie eye makeup with lots of facial contouring and magical eyebrows. Heeheehee. Anyway I'm off to bed. Lots of things to do in school tomorrow. Night night! 2mon

laranovales Cosplay achievement #1. So last night I joined a cosplay contest at Itsumo over at the art district and it was kinda a sour of the moment, I wasn't planning on competing or anything, I was there to support my friends. But anyway I joined in for the heck of it and made an on the spot short monologue which I though was an absolute failure.
I went as Shizuma again, but the little black dress version. (Will share it next time) but yeah to my surprise I won 3rd place (2nd runner up) hahahaha! It's amusing and sad because all the judges saw were my bewbs..... but it's okay it was all good fun. So yes, my first achievement Heeheeheehee! I called the powers of Yaya Han and Jessica Nigri's "assets" and they do help win things.... But it's kinda a sad and harsh reality. But the unexpected win was awesome! Now I have budget for the fabric for my costumes! Heeheeheehe eyeay!
Congratulations to @kairaito and @banazure for bagging 2nd and 1st place!!! Heeheehee
