Blogging in 2016

by dietingfashion on July 28, 2016


It’s been a while since I have blogged. My mom was diagnosed with colon cancer and breast cancer in November 2014. 2015 was spent in and out of doctors’ offices, stressed out beyond anything I’ve ever imagined, and was plagued with numerous familial deaths. My mom was not one of the family members that passed.

She is still kicking it and fighting. She’s eating, walking, talking – you name it. Unfortunately, the breast cancer has not gone away. One day at a time.

My mom’s dad passed last year, along with my cousin who committed suicide due to PTSD. He was a marine.

2016 is the year, I promised to take my kids to Disney World. So I’m saving up and already planning our trip of a lifetime. Forget the worries, the stresses in life and all the obstacles – Disney ‘The Happiest Place On Earth’ – Here we come!


Thank You!

1st Purchase of 2015» Fitness Wear

by dietingfashion on January 5, 2015

LOL. My 1st purchases of the year were fitness clothes. Last year, I cleaned out my closet and noticed my fitness wear were all yoga pants and t-shirts I have had since college. I donated those clothes and decided to just buy fitness clothes from Gap. Gap has a line of fitness wear that’s moderately priced and their line is Gapfit. I think it’s only available to women. I know that Gap has a athletic wear brand Athleta that’s more pricey. I think it’s to compete with Lululemon (which I have not purchased from). Lululemon just seems too pricey and I have been hearing such negative HR practices and subpar reviews on their products that I am not interested in their products.

If you disagree, drop me a comment and let me know what I should be looking at Lululemon.

Well 2 Gapfit gfast leggings purchases later and I’m a little disappointed. The leggings lasted about 5 months before “slippage” started to happen. “Slippage” is what I term when an article of clothing starts to slide down my body and won’t stay in place. Any running, movement causes the leggings to slip and expose body parts. About the 10th month mark, the leggings attracted so much lint! It’s probably 1 year since I purchased those leggings and I’m ready to retire them.

I purchased from and Boston brand Crane and Lion was on my Facebook ad space and I thought it was cool. Clicked on the site and was really drawn to the clothing and the minimalistic styles. The colors are soothing and relaxing. Exactly what I was looking for.

See what I purchased:

Zip-Up Jacket Capri Tight
Short Sleeve Tee Lightweight Tight
