New Beginnings on Belle Belle

At the risk of sounding like a cliche… okay, I am kinda like one giant cliche.. but at least I own it. I am re-instituting some of my healthy habits this new year. I admit that the holidays were a bit of a free-for-all. And the new work gig has led to some laziness. Side note: I am definitely an introvert – very socially poised but I regain my strength from alone time. So I had gotten in the habit of plopping myself on the couch as soon as I got home.

You may or may not know that I lost 35 pounds a while back (12/12-7/13). I kept those suckers off until about fall of 2014. And then I gained back 13 of em. All and all, I know that isn’t too bad. But I just miss the body (and the way clothes fit) that I had worked so hard to win.

While I love Nutrisystem and will always recommend it to those who need some structure, I feel like it already instilled in me portion control and the need for exercise. I have been regimented for two weeks now and can report I have lost 6 of those 13 pounds.

I still rely greatly on prepared meals that are portioned correctly. And of course that hour of a workout after a long day. I do realize there are no short cuts or tricks as I once thought. So there is my update. I’ll keep you posted. And meanwhile, here are some finds from this week on the web:

Somehow I am missing a cable knit sweater from my closet and loving this one.

Take note: beauty trends for 2015.

This gave me all the warm fuzzies over my former hometown, San Francisco.

A modern twist on the classic trench.

I don’t care what side of the aisle you fall on… this tool is cool. #SOTU

Great job on losing that much in such a short time span! What have you been eating, meal-wise?

The holidays were a free-for-all for me too. Ugh.
