Just the Beginning::

During these 8 long months, I decided to make a decision. That decision to was to make myself look the way I feel inside. I’ve been told numerous times from people that their first impression of me is a fun, loving, bubbly person. Well when I looked in the mirror that is not what I saw. 

You may know that saying the freshman 15? Well this lovely lady gained way more than 15, quite frankly it felt like 50.  So since deciding to leave college, I have also made the executive decision to lose weight.

That’s right I am actually doing what I promised myself I would do for my New Years resolution. It felt good to finally do something for myself.  So over the past 8 months I have been working out like a mad woman and eating as healthy as possible.

Accompanying today's OOTD is an older photo to show you what I've accomplished so far.

Before you leave here are some motivating quotes I found while surfing the web :)

I would love to hear if you have any tips or tricks on staying healthy. :)

Rocking the Cargo Pants::

While I was packing my things up for a second time, I realized how much clothing I had. It was ridiculous and that’s putting it lightly! So like any good clothes hording female I took days and days and oh did I say days to finally decide what I wanted to keep and what I wanted to donate.

To my dismay my SWMBO (She Who Must Be Obeyed: aka Mom) got me to keep these cargo pants. I swore up and down that you would never catch me in them. Well as you can see I am clearly eating my words. I am in LOVE with these pants. They are so comfy, they’re in a fabilious color and if I choose I don’t need a purse.

I guess that saying that she always told is true ;) “Moms know best”

The Unexpected Return::

Wow 8 months flies by!! It feels like just yesterday I was telling you all that I was telling you all that I was packing and heading off back to college. Well now I’m back, I’ve packed and unpacked my things for a second time (hopefully the last for a little bit.) Well seeing as I am back the first thing that crossed my mind was blogging. I’m not gonna lie I was nervous to start writing and posting again. It sorta feels like the first time again. Ive been contemplating posting for a few months now and I finally bit the figurative bullet and started writing.

Within these last few months my style has started to evolve and with that comes the fun of learning how to style and accessorize my outfits.

I'd love to hear how you've been the past few months :)
