Just a Llittle Rant

Vintage Dress: Duet Vintage, Vintage Fedora: thrifted, Payless heels: thrifted 


Have you ever had so much to do that you don't even know where to start from?  Well that is how I feel today. It is probably one of the reasons why sometimes I'm not even sure why I have a blog .Okay, I do know one reason. I love sharing my thrifty outfits, promoting recycled fashion, and from time to time sharing DIY's, three reasons? 

Being organized is not easy period! But, I believe it is doable. It amazes me how much more I was able to get done when I was in school, working part time jobs, and helping at my local church. Now that I'm at home every other day, I can't seem to get most things done. Sometimes I catch myself trying to do three things at once. And many of us know that is not going to work. 

How do you stay organized?

Anyway, I have completed week three of eating better. I think from now on, I will stop counting the weeks. Especially if it is a life goal that I'm shooting for. Total count down 6lbs lost, not sure how many inches. It's interesting how men lose weight much more easier than women. My husband lost far much more than I. haha!

This fabulous vintage dress that I purchased from Duet Vintage on Etsy, did not fit me a few months ago. I was a little nervous to try it on, but it fit! Truly one of the quirks of a successful new eating routine.

I hope you all enjoy the rest of  your week!

      It has only been two weeks since I started eating better. I have stopped eating out, no more late night snacks, and I have been cooking more at home. And it is amazing how soon I began seeing the results of my new eating habbits. This dress for example, I bought it about four months ago. Although I knew it wouldn't fit right away, I just had to try it on the day it arrived. Sadly, the buttons just wouldn't close.
   Today I felt extra brave and decided to try it on. It is still a bit tight, but I can sit down comfortably and not worry about the buttons popping out. I would probably not wear it out yet because of the fit and how cold it has been here in Chicago. Can't wait to try it on in a few more weeks, God willing, and see if it will fit better.
 I'm so excited to continue this new journey of eating better. This is truly one of my life goals and no longer just another new years resolution. I know it has only been two weeks and we are just starting the new year, but I think that seeing that my health is at risk has really kept me motivated. It is no longer about the cute clothes, or looking thin. I just want to be, feel, and stay healthy.
What are some of your life goals? What keeps you motivated?

Hello 2015

Dress: Modcloth, Belt: vintage  Thrifted: shoes, bag, and brooch

Hello all! 

Happy new year! Hello 2015! I'm so grateful for this new year. I have so many goals and dreams. I don't even know where to start. This year I really really REALLY hope to lose some lbs, read more, help more, and get a teaching job. I have been looking into both failed and accomplished goals from the past. I think that by doing so, I am able to see what works better for me. Commiting to your goals is not easy, but once accomplished they are rewarding. I know that with a little commitment, dedication, and God's help I can accomplish many great things this year. 

What are some of your goals for 2015?
