Day 1 {of 30}

Shirts {target} Jeans {old navy} Shoes {payless}

Here is my first outfit for the 30 day challenge. As much as I need to be a bit comfy as I am handling 8month old twins all day, I still want to look cute too. And this outfit was perfect for that.

New Challenge {30for30}


A fashion blog that I have been reading is doing her 2 challenge called 30for30. Its taking 30 clothing items and remixing them for 30 days! So I have decided to do this challenge. And here is my picks.

1.Target 2. Target 3.New York & Company 4.Target  5. New York & Company
6. Target 7. Oldnavy 8. Target 9. Walmart 10. Francescas
1.New York & Company 3.Target 4. Oldnavy 4. Oldnavy 5. TJmax 
6. H&M {via thriftstore} 7. Oldnavy 8. Target 9. Love Culture 10. Oldnavy
 1.Target 3.Target 4. Target 4. Oldnavy 5. Target
6. Old navy 7. Payless 8. Target 9. Payless 
I am kinda nervous weather I can do this or not. I sadly don't get to dress all the cute day to day as I am a nanny and playing with twin 8month old girls. That keeps me moving all day and lots of playing on the floor and messing eating times.  But I am excited to see what I can do and have fun with my outfits.

And as you may have noticed that is only 29. After loading the pictures I realized I forgot one item. So I will update when I add the other item in the mix. 
Stay tuned for all the fun outfits!

Week 1 Review--

So I am now down to 162! Granted I only lost 3lbs the first week on the diet ( I clocked in at the first day on it at 165) and was hoping to loose 5lbs. I am still happy at the number. 
But one thing I have learned is I need to let go of the numbers a bit. So I am now ONLY going to weigh myself on Wednesdays. I will have weekly weigh in post. My goal from here on out is really just to loose a pound a week as I feel like that is REALLY realistic. And as much as I would love to blog daily, 
I have also learned that is just not realistic for me. But I will FOR SURE blog weekly.

But being at 162 means I have lost 20POUNDS this year so far! This has been a slow journey for me. But I know I am getting to my goal. I just have to remember how far I have come and NEVER want to go back to where I was. When I started this the first of the year I really thought it would be easier then this, I dont know why because my weight has never been easy to take off. But I know this is the first time I am being serious about it and REAL. I feel better about myself opening about about my weight struggle. For so long I tried to ignore it like it didnt matter. But it does.And going through those teen years struggling with how I was, was REALLY HARD. And I never talked to anyone about it. I pretend like there wasn't a problem. And I felt very alone with myself like I was the only one struggling. And back then I didn't know what to do to help. I didn't have the means to really change when I was eating what my parents made.

I am happy I am making the steps to change and get healthy for really the first time in my life. :)

Carblovers Diet--Food { Day 4}

So the food on this diet is really pretty good. The only thing I haven't LOVED is the chopped salad with garbanzo beans. Maybe they are good in other things. They just weren't my favorite thing. What I have been loving are those things above.
1) Is fish and potatoes with a simple salad. The book says Salmon but I found cat fish on sale and bought instead. I don't know if it makes much of a difference?
2) Is Chicken Pasta Primavera, which was AMAZING. It was pretty simple to make also. It makes 2 servings so I ate the other half 2 days later and it was just as good as the first night. When making it though, it calls for very LITTLE amount of pasta and I was very unsure, but with everything else it for sure filled me up.
Is the Banana Shake with a few added berries to add flavor.
This has been my breakfast EVERYDAY for the last 2 weeks and I am still not tired of it. Its so yummy.I started last week with just working on drinking this for breakfast to slowly get back into things. The book calls for honey to add sweetness. But instead of honey I add 1/4th cup of orange juice which helps give a bit more flavor.

For lunch I have been mostly having the Express lunch.
Which is just Rye Crisp, Cheese, Hard Boiled Egg, Suppose to be apple but I have head a peach instead. Pretty Boring but easy to pack for lunch for work and I like easy.

I am excited for next week to jump into more recipe options from the book though. I haven't even really looked other then a quick glance because I just want to concentrate on this week of what I can eat.

I am really excited to share the weight loss with you. (I weigh myself everyday, I know I shouldn't but it really keeps me going and on top of things. I really enjoy it too!) But I wont share with you what I have lost this week till after my whole 7 days are done.
So for sure check in Monday and see how I did!
