Friday Fancies #3

Link up with all of us over at {LONG DISTANCE LOVING}!

What is black and white and red all over (well hints of red) ...
Black & White
Awhile ago, I questioned my style (HERE) and a former acquaintance told me that if she had to describe my style it would be black and white.  Somehow now looking back that doesn't quite seem like a compliment.  So once I saw this was an upcoming outfit for Friday Fancies ... I got to wondering ... how am I going to rock this black and white outfit because obviously I need to push it out of my safe zone since said comment.  Also, the whole point of me being part of this link up is to prove to myself that I do indeed have style.  

When I found those pants (they are from H&M and I love them plus hello they are $20 - I am totally getting them) I knew this outfit was going to rock.  I think this would be a perfect outfit to wear out to dinner for my birthday on Sunday!   If you read that old post (again HERE) - my strong area is not accessories.  I accessorized the black and white with the hints of red to give the look an extra kick of fab!

So what do you think?

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?
