My gym membership expired and my kids have been sick for the last 3 weeks. Wow. Am I sleep deprived or what? I felt like I was a zombie. I barely ate until I felt like I was coming down with something. When your kids are sick, you forget to take care of yourself. Luckily, I live near so many restaurants that I’m able to pick up something to boost my energy and keep my immune system revving.
Unfortunately, I stopped my Paleo diet. I need to start it up again. If you follow me on Instagram (@dietingfashions), I have been taking pics of my grain free meals. I find that eating “clean” (no grains or beans) really helped me lose the weight so far.
I still have 12 more pounds. Hopefully I can lose the final 12 pounds by Christmas.
I had purchased this dress on Loft.com back in August. It was a bit tight but the extra 2 pounds I lost since then helped me fit in this dress. The dress is very demure but sassy with the stripes. I really like the pleated skirt because it helps to hide the tummy. The nipped in waistline defines my post partum waist instead of making me feel like a blob. The fabric is a stretchy material that is lined. I didn’t have to alter this dress. But I do feel the neckline to the armpits are a bit too tight on me. It’s not too uncomfortable. The sleeveless part of the dress is cut a bit too far back so my bra straps tend to give a peep show.
Overall I really like the dress and I think it’s going to be one of my favorites for a long time.

A friend told me about this online planner from WebMD that gives you the ability to track what you eat and how much your exercise. I have heard of online planners that charge to do this, but WebMD is totally FREE. Yes, FREE. Plus you can sign up to get daily emails regarding what foods you need to eat and daily log reminders so you won’t forget to track your meals and exercise.
WebMD’s tool also lets you see the amount of calories you’re consuming and how much you are burning from what type of exercise. I do wish they had an app for my phone that I can log in my habits while on the run. Otherwise, this is a useful tool for anyone looking to lose weight and need a visual motivator.
Fitsugar.com reports what Jennifer Aniston does to keep in shape. This video features her yoga guide Mandy Ingber teaching different poses and positions in order to maximize the right muscles to get the right definition.
The video seems easy enough that it makes me motivated to try this at home.
