Guest Post!!

Hey ladies!
I am Melina and I blog over Only A Flight Away.

I thought I would share my story about my long distance relationship with my boyfriend Sebastian. Enjoy♥  It all started back in 2009. was my obsession back in those days. Hopping from one fotolog to another, I found Sebastian's fotolog. It was love at first sight. I left him a message saying I added him on MSN. Ya ladies.. I had to talk to this guy! Next thing I know I am sitting in front of my laptop full of butterflies in my stomach, chatting and laughing with him like if we known each other for years.

After a couple of months I decided to go to Buenos Aires, Argentina and finally meet the guy that made my heart beat so fast. December 17, 2009 I arrived in EZE Airport. As I walked to the waiting area, I look up and saw him smiling right at me. I started shaking because I couldn't believe we were steps away from each other. He walked really fast until we meet eye to eye. He hugged me so tight and kissed me. Oh boy did I fall for this guy. He grabbed my hand and took care of my luggage. I couldn't stop staring at him the whole drive home.
He kept repeating over and over again:
"I can't believe you are sitting in my car".
It was just perfect!

We spent a whole month together. The best summer of my life. FYI : In Argentina it's summer time around December =) Then I had to leave him. My family, my friends, the place I call "Home" and my job were ready for me to come back. Going back to the routine was harder that I thought. After spending everyday with Sebastian, I knew my days would not be the same without him. I felt completely empty inside but I didn't let the distance get to me. Instead, I decided to plan out my next trip out there.
Went back in June 2010 and boyfriend surprised me with a trip to Bariloche, Argentina. You can see all the pictures HERE. All those months that we were apart, he worked really hard to save money so both of us could have an unforgettable vacation together.  Once again, I had a great time with him. He makes everything better. I enjoyed the Winter in Argentina like never before.
My last trip was in Feb 2011. I feel like I have not seen him in years.  I need him more than ever and it gets harder and harder by the minute.  Everyday I wish for this to be over. For him to be able to come and spend the rest of his life next to me. But I will not let the distance bring me down! This is almost over. I get my citizenship in May 2012 and will get Sebastian the fiance visa.  When I least expect it, he will be packing all his belongings to head to the airport. I am really exited for what the future is holding for us. I can't wait to pick him up at LAX and finally start this journey together. {Melina&&Sebastian Nov 4, 2009}

12 Things You Need for Successful Weight Loss

1) Get your head in the game! Weight loss doesn't happen without dedication.  You have to have the mindset to get it done.  I've said in the past that motivation for me is like a light switch ... when it's on it is ON.  Even though motivation is one of the key things you need ~ you also need patience, understanding, time, and willpower.  You have to make a commitment to yourself and stick with it. 2) Track your progress! Tracking keeps you honest to yourself.  Without tracking you can sabotage yourself into overeating.  For example, tell me EVERYTHING you ate on Friday off the top of your head, not so easy right?  Also, there are tons of apps out there that you can quickly track or you can do it the old fashion way of writing it down.  Find what works for you and do it daily.  Also, as a rule I normally track my whole day in the morning.  Breakfast, Lunch, Snack & Dinner.  This also keeps me in track.  I can budget out my day and make changes if things arise or when y…

It's Okay Thursday/Hello Monday #5

... to be so productive that you "forget" to blog!

... to have tire issues on April Fool's Day and have to preface every text with ... this is NOT an April Fool's joke.

... to buy 11 items from the dollar days area at Target in an effort to get organized.  {hmmmm ... maybe a good idea for a blog post.}

... to forget to finish this post!

Hello Monday#5 It is truly amazing how much better my makeup and hair look on the weekend. So if you have never tried Starbucks Via Iced Coffee - I highly recommend. So I just watched Into the Woods over the weekend.  Why did the music sound EXACTLY like Sweeney Todd? Seriously I even googled that sh!t and came up with nothing. Why is it on weekends I am all about managing my down time  like it was my last meal or something.  Um no, I cannot do XYZ,  that is a total lack of consideration to my weekend of staying at  home and doing nothing for 48 hours straight.  
How are you doing today?
