I’ve been focusing really hard on my gym routine these last couple of months and it’s amazing how much happier I feel.

I never liked going to the gym in the past because obviously its easier to sit around and put your feed up-however, going to the gym is one of the only times in the whole day that for exactly one hour I am doing nothing else but focusing on my own mind and body.

Even when I take a shower I get interrupted a lot, which is sweet of course, but still… a moment to gather my thoughts and break a sweat does wonders for the soul.

I used to go to all the “classes” but I have put all that on hold for the moment. It was getting stressful scrambling to be there in time for the class, etc..

Now I just stick to the treadmill, plain and simple. I don’t go over board with it and never go over one hour a day.

My goal is always make sure I knock out at least 450 calories.

After the first 3o minutes I stop and stretch and take a water break and reenergize myself to kill the last half hour.

Sometimes I watch the news, other times I like to watch shows about remodeling homes, tasting food from all around the world, Seinfeld or even Friends.

Other times I like to crank up the music videos. Watching them is like a mini dance party. Each video is a few minutes and sometimes I find myself getting lost in them. Time flies.

When I want to jack up the pace and squeeze out some sweat I turn to my iPhone and put on my favorite jams.

Of course a great dress helps when you are thinking about Easter and what to wear for the fun family weekend.

When in doubt I go STRAIGHT to my favorite website StyleWe. You’ve probably heard me say this a thousand times before but they have thousands and thousands of dresses and options. For this dress I literally typed into the search button on the site: flower dress. It’s perfect for Spring and Church. Flirty, pretty and fresh. Currently sold out 🙁  But I also love this one, this one and this one!!!

(Also great for wedding season 😉 )

Hope you are all having a fabulous week! What’s your favorite part about working out?!!

XO,

Stephany

It’s the start of the new year and already I can feel like 2017 is going to be a good one. There are a few changes I want to make and some goals I’d like to achieve but over all I’m looking back at 2016 as a wonderful time. 

There were many pieces of motivation and inspiration that I want to take with me into the new year. I’ve complied a list of my favorite quotes that I have collected over time. On tough days when I loose my focus or my confidence I look back on these words and they remind me of where I am, who I am and what I am striving to accomplish. 

I hope to build on these words and stay true to the strength, courage and determination that they’ve given me. Of course, many times I forget, or get caught up in the moment and lose sight of what I’ve accomplished.

Like everyone else, I have days when I feel less than happy, able or valuable. I can’t lose my baby weight fast enough, have worn the same outfit 3 days in a row, haven’t washed my hair or taken it out of my messy bun in forever. Over all (in my defense, haha) I always try my best.

At the end of the day what more can you do?I try not to dwell on the bad and celebrate the good. 

Below are a list of my go to quotes as of this past year 

I never lose. I either win or I learn. -Nelson Mandela

A head full of fear has no place for dreams.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.

No matter how you feel, get up, dress up, show up and never give up.

She who dares wins.

Self confidence is the best outfit

Be so good they can’t ignore you. – Steve Martin

I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life- and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing I wanted to do- Georgia O’Keefe

She believed she could, so she did

I’ve found the key to happiness. Stay the hell away from assholes.

Listen, I wish I could tell you it gets better. But it doesn’t get better, YOU get better. -Joan Rivers

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. – GOETHE

As you can probably tell I’m a major dreamer with huge goals for myself, and low self confidence. I try to go for my dreams, and try not to let myself get into the way.

It’s a continuous battle, maybe the biggest struggle I’ve always faced.  I want to show my children that they can have whatever they dream of if they fight for it, never give up and do it the right way. The best example you can give your children is how you choose to live your life, because they are watching. I want them to be proud of me, and show them that anything is achieveable with hard work.

Stephany’s Choice: Red Dress: STYLEWE || Shoes: SIMILAR HERE || Lipstick : REVLON

Red dress!! Y A A A S S S !! Okay okay, I’m crushing on this red dress way to hard, but really?!! It’s so challenging to find the perfect little RED dress!! I mean, really! How cute is this?! It’s kind of a cherry red color and it’s elegant too. It sort of shoots out at the bottom and is really flattering. I think I’m in love. If you buy one holiday dress this one should be considered. Plus, it can double for Valentine’s Day?! Woo! STYLEWE has a huge selection of gorgeous dresses. It was really tricky trying to narrow down my search. A variety of prices, hundreds and thousonds of options.

When searching for the perfect holiday dress what do I look for?! I’ve broken them out to a few main points..

Holiday dress code

Short and sweet: because long dresses get in the way and short dresses feel more flirty and modern.

Sleeves must be long : I love a good sleeve, as my dresses are always short I think a sleeve gives me more coverage. A good sleeve can also be more flattering than one that is cropped or cut off on the arm. Also, I hate being cold and that extra fabric is something I can count on for warmth and keep the chills at bay.

Babydoll and loose fitting: As the dress is already short, having it skin tight may be slightly provocative for me. Not that I’m so conservative or anything it’s just more discreet and flattering. If I’m eating at the event or walking around I begin to get self conscience, and wonder if anyone can see any bulge or curve out of place. Besides, I love the movement and texture of lots of fabric. 

Color should be fun and flirty. Most importantly,choose something that makes you happy, today mine this happy cherry red! 

My best accessory here is a secret weapon: Black Cherry lipstick. It’s been a favorite of mine for years. 5 years ago I had a near panic moment when I thought it was discontinued. I ran to every cosmetics counter that I could find and bought up as many as I could. Luckily, it seems like they haven’t discontinued the shade after all. haha. I love the color because it makes my teeth look white and bright. It also builds up to a really pretty deep red color. You can also apply just a tiny bit and it comes on as a pretty rosey shade. Dab some on your cheeks for a cute sun kissed look too! If you’re worried about going red or going dark this is the perfect season to try it! If you over do it, just blot on a kleenex and put on a nude matte shade.

Try it out and let me know what you think. Every single one of my handbags (especially my sparkly date night clutches) has one inside!! Speaking of date night, Friday is going to be our 7 year anniversary date!! All I want is a margarita and guacamole, is that lame?! I seriously just want to sit back and relax, catch up and have a laugh. I’m so glad I get to do that with my best friend.
