I have lost 40 lbs to date and would like to see another 10 lbs come off, but as usual, the last 10 are the hardest as they say :-). Do you have any suggestions on taking off those dreaded 10 lbs? I have tried changing my eating habits as well as trying different workouts. But I just seem to stay at 143/144 lbs.

Hi, I just stumbled across your blog via a Pinterest post and saw that you're a Fashion Consultant for Dillard's. I'm in college right now and am trying to figure out what I want to do after I graduate and would absolutely loooove to get into the Fashion Industry. I was just wondering if I could maybe email you & ask you a few questions about your job and how you got there?

I’m really sorry I have been MIA lately! I’ve had medical problems within my family.

I had the privilege of styling a woman who was 1 of 8 chosen to be included in a book written by Stacy London of What Not To Wear. She was searching for a dress to wear for an upcoming cocktail party on a rooftop in NYC celebrating the book. The woman had Breast Cancer then reconstructive surgery and found it difficult to find a dress that fit her properly & she felt confident wearing. She loved her outfit and all my styling tips ❤

Helping women feel confident & beautiful with themselves makes my job very rewarding. If you wanna know more, email me at livedancelovedream@gmail.com!

Weightless Wednesday

I weighed myself yesterday & was 126.2 pounds. Just 11.2 more lbs. to go!

I will be answering all of your questions this week…

So please be patient with me. Thanks, ya’ll!

Toned, Healthy, and Fit

I’m really sorry I’ve been MIA for the past 4 months! I have recently moved to Wilmington, North Carolina with my hubby, Jamie, and started a full-time Fashion Consultant & Swimsuit Specialist job at Dillard’s! Between moving, unpacking, organizing and decorating our “Love Nest”, & working 40+ hours a week, I haven’t taken time outta my busy schedule to workout. Yikes! If you’re like me, you are probably thinking that you could lose weight and tone up before slipping into that Halloween costume. Or you’re a procrastinator & keep telling yourself that you will workout…tomorrow. We should all aim to be the best versions of ourselves: Toned, healthy, and fit! Starting Monday, August 20th, I’m rededicating myself to a healthy lifestyle. {I have an unhealthy obsession with Chick-fil-A & Sundrop!} That’s why I am sharing my 6 Week Workout Plan with ya’ll!

My 6 Week Workout Plan:

The Rules

  • This is a lifestyle change. NOT a diet.
  • Don’t lose sight of your goals. You can do this!
  • Drink lots and lots of water!
  • As soon as you wake up, sip lemon water. It aids in digestion, is cleansing, & a natural energizer! Drink it at least 30 minutes before eating.
  • Eat a healthy Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.
  • Eat 2 healthy snacks each day.

The Off-Limits List

  • No baked goodies, candy, or frozen treats! Treat yourself to a serving of dessert you’re craving once a week. {Click here for The Weekly Challenge.}
  • No sodas.
  • No eating 2 hours before going to bed.

Exercises

  • Week 1: Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack {A 30 minute workout.}
  • Week 2, 3, 4, & 5: Jillian Michaels Extreme Shed and Shred & 6 Week Six-Pack {Both equal an hour and 15 minute workout.}
  • Week 6: Jillian Michaels 6 Week Six-Pack

If you follow this plan for the next 6 weeks, you will be in great shape for the upcoming holiday season. Just remember to stay focused on eating healthy & dedicate yourself to exercising regularly. Most importantly, listen to your body, drink lots of water, get at least 8 hours of sleep every night, and stick to the workout plan! Over these next 6 weeks, I will be updating ya’ll on my progress. Get excited, motivated, & ready to confidently slip into that Halloween costume!

I was really craving pasta for dinner tonight! {I haven’t had any in forever.} I had a serving of pasta with Alfredo sauce, a salad w/ organic Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, and Wish Bone Italian Salad Spritzers {Only 1 Calorie per spritz & I only had 6!}, and fresh cucumbers with apple cider vinegar.
Ohh…and Raspberry Lemonade water {My new fave Crystal Light flavor mix!}. Delish!
