I've had bread and pizza during my journey and I've still lost weight.
Portion size is a must, point blank.
When I do bread, I do bread hot out of the oven with butter and nothing else.
My Mom and grandmother make homemade bread all the time, I use this most of the time.
And its simple to make and taste really good.
I also made it through Thanksgiving week actually losing a pound but let me tell you, I did 8 workouts between Monday and Saturday just so I can eat whatever I want on thanksgiving and black Friday without feeling guilty about it.
So now its back to the grind. I have 34 more days to see how much weight I can shake off before the end of the year.
M- My mom, she is the alpha and she acts like it :)
Y- yours truly, because self care isn't just manicures and expensive clothes, its maintaining a healthy body and improving yourself mentally also.
S- siblings, my brother and sister
E- extended family (cousin, aunts, uncles, grandparents and my best friends)
L- lover, thats my honey, who seems to be getting hotter each year
F- My father, he is the omega and he works hard for it.
I prayed for all my readers collectively, I send a blessing to all of your households, please have a great thankgiving, please be the one to stop the drama if any occurs and be the change you want to see.
Oh and before I go, here is a sneak peek of my next review.
As I type these words to you, I just don’t know what made you do this.
For some time, I figured Butterick would release a holiday collection preceding Mccalls and Vogue.
But nothing could have prepared me for this.
I've always thought that the “Butterick girl” is the mainstream maven of the pattern industry.
Not hipster, trendy but still sophisticate everyday fashion that you can find at most department stores.
I feel like this collection is very retro, which is not necessarily a bad thing but when you are in your thirties like I am, there is a fine line between a gentle nod towards fashion’s past and straight up old fashion dressing. Some of these patterns look way too OLD to be new.
B5846 looks like summer in the late 50's and I like it but its winter and holiday time, doesn't make any sense. I think B5850 is beautiful, view B in a shuntung would be classy.
B5851, the styling for this dress is killing me. Shaking my head in shame!
B5847 just says old fashion, straight up, I will NEVER wear a dress like that, no shaping, too long, its horrible.
B5849 I like the collar of this one, it may make it into my collection because I can wear this to work, in the summer, maybe....
Something about this dress remains me of the early 80s, the slit I don't like, but the play with textures is promising, that slit would have to be moved to the back, regardless, this is a pass for me.
