Checklist. 1st semester of College ✔

So as you can see in the title, I have just completed my first semester of college!

…Have I told you guys that I actually graduated high school one year early? So technically, I would just now be graduating high school this June. But I looked life right into the windows of it’s soul and said, “Ha! Is that all you’ve got? I need a bigger challenge than that!” (…that’s not actually how the real story goes, but I’ll save that for later.)

So as far as my grades go….well, I have a 3.5 GPA! Woop woop!

I’m not even going to go into all of the individual grades, but I would like to say this much.

Anyone who knows me, knows that I kinda sorta suck at math. So what really sucked was when I was put into Statistics and Analysis…like, whet?

I didn’t even know what it was until I got into the class! I just knew that it sounded scary and annoying, and every time I would bring it up in conversation, the person who I was talking to would roll their eyes and say “shoot, good luck” and laugh. That was not a calming response!

But the real problem was that umm, it was an ONLINE class, and, well, I NO LONGER HAVE A COMPUTER! Annnnnnd it was an 8-week class–meaning that it would go twice as fast as all of my other classes! Ugh.

So blah blah blah, after plenty of blood, sweat, and tears being shed (literally, well, maybe not blood), and with plenty of prayers and praises to God, with His favor and mercy, I got out of there with a ‘B’ in both the class and the lab! Woop woop! Isn’t God amazing? Ahhh.

Just thought that I would share that little story with you–maybe encourage someone. 

I’m not trying to preach to anyone, but I just want you guys to remember that you can do allllllll things through Christ who strengthens you.

So,

…what’s new with you guys?? :)<3*

“I just want to show plus size girls and women all over the world that you don’t have to be a size small to feel beautiful and confident.” -Karra K aka TheKarronicoles

I. Love. Sweat.

Please enjoy this before and after picture of my day at the gym. After an hour of being in the gym, (30 minutes on treadmill, 30 minutes on weights), this is my end result.
The before says: I’m amazing, I got this. And the after says: okay…two miles on a treadmill is a little longer than I thought.
Either way, I felt soo exhilarated afterwards! I love seeing the progress that I’ve made, and I lovee sweating. It just makes me feel so accomplished!
So far this month I’ve made sure to exercise AT LEAST 10 minutes a day. (Because I’m a full time student, it’s hard to fit exercising into my schedule, so setting a small goal like that makes it easier to stick too.)
Now my next step is reeeaallly watching what I eat . The only place where I mess up is choosing the food I snack on, and I know that is many people’s downfall.
Just switch your snacks from chips and muffins to fruits and veggies and you should be good!
Happy Healthiness!!PhotoGrid_1389499220560

New Blog for a New Year

New Blog for a New Year

Well…not really.
Sorry, I lied, but I thought the title rolled off the tongue nicely!

But yes, no new blog, however, I will be improving many things.
Like hey, here’s a thought…maybe I’ll put up posts more than once every two months!
ooh and here’s another one! Maybe because my blog is called, “So I’ve Got Curves”, I’ll post more about my curves and more about plus size fashion!
*shake my head*
Dont worry everyone, I’m back on! I have to represent for my fellow “thicker than most” women!
“So I’ve Got Curves is back!!!”

***I hope you enjoyed this very sarcastically toned post. Well, the beginning was sarcastic, but the rest was very serious.***
*insert stern look here*

P.s. Don’t you just loveeee my outfit? Post on it coming up next! ;)

it’s what you (literally) make of it.

Tonight’s attire is a black dress, well, not really.

I took a long black skirt and paired it with a long black sleeve shirt with a black lacy scarf to use as a belt. And on my feet I’m wearing the most comfortable black platform wedges that have ever been created. And I’m wearing the most beautiful cameo earrings that I died and ressurected for when I saw them in Forever 21. Ha! And this beautiful gold necklace that I also decided to buy basically goes with everything in my closet.

Well, I must say that I am quite satisfied with this look for just a laid back family dinner party. Yes, im THAT relative. I get it from my mommy!

No More Waiting ‘Til New Years

No More Waiting 'Til New Years

Ok…so its almost 11 o’clock and the choices of “after hours rummage food” are narrowed down to leftover lasagna or fresh artisan salad and I choose…unlike any sane person…artisan salad! I don’t know, I guess my body knows what it wants! So I went ahead and ate the salad, and surprisingly I was perfectly satisfied. I didn’t even steal a bite of lasagna afterwards like I had planned too!
Anyways, I don’t know who I can inspire today or tonight, but if I don’t end up helping anyone else, at least I can help myself.
So:
Dear Karra,
Your body knows what it wants, your mind knows what it wants. Do not procrastinate, for that is what the Leo’s tendency is. Don’t wait until new years to do your annual, “This upcoming year I’ll lose the rest of this weight.” No ma’am you will not make the same mistake again. Follow what you feel is right, do not indulge in things that are not helping you for the better. Continue to make these types of small changes, and in the end, you will see the grand result! Little changes in your life will come together and make a huge difference.
