Sunday Funday!

This week was a good workout week for me.  I finally went back to my weight training program after taking 3 weeks off to baby my back.  I can't believe how sore I got afterwards!  I mean it's not like I haven't worked out at all for the past 3 weeks, but lifting heavy weights is just totally different.  I really love it and am so glad to be back doing it.

Ok, here we go with the outfits this week!

Tuesday 3/20
What I did:  I picked off where I left off with stage 3, workout B of my program.

What I wore:  It's kind of ironic, but I wore the same tank that I was wearing when I fell and hurt my back!  I didn't even realize it until afterwards.  I wore the Lululemon Power Y tank in discover stripe, with power purple groove pants and my Nike Free shoes.



I also have a work outfit from Tuesday.  I wore this older Express cowl neck sweater I've had for a while, with the Tahari Sara Skirt and Michael Kors Fleur Tall Boot.  I'm actually wearing my Lululemon Wunder Unders as tights under my boots, because it was so cold!




Wednesday 3/21
What I did:  Workout A of my training program.




I wore my Lift Your Spirits jacket as to/from.



Thursday 3/22 & Friday 3/23:  I did not workout these days since I was so sore from my weigh lifting sessions!  I figured I'd get back slowly so I needed the rest!

But I do have one work outfit though, from Thursday.  Here I am wearing this sapphire blue tank from Victoria's Secret, with an Armani Exchange wrap sweater over.  And Express Wide Waistband Editor pants in charcoal.  Complete with my black peep toe pumps with gold trim.  



Oh yeah, Whiskey found a new toy this week, which is this stuffed animal dog that my hubby won for me at some carnival thing a couple years ago.  He's been obsessed with his dog!  Carrying it with him everywhere, tossing him in the air and catching him, it's so cute.




Hehe.  So cute!

Saturday 3/24
What I did:  Boxing!  I hadn't done boxing in quite a while, and I think my boxing teacher became crazy during my time off.  He literally had us do all kinds of box jumps for the first 20 minutes as "warm up", and then a hard boxing session, and then end with more legs and treadmill runs at the end.  Death.  My back, shoulders and legs are all sore today!

What I wore:  Lululemon cool racerback tank in little boy blue, and bright blue Flow Y bra under.  With matchy matchy bright blue Passion Crop and Nike Frees.  Yep, a lot of blue.



As to/from, I wore my Flashback jacket in dark classic sport gray/angel blue, and white Dance Studio pants.  It was really cold!



I also have a going out on the town outfit as well from last night.  It was a friend's birthday and we went to Hollywood.  Though me and my husband just hung out with them for the bar part, not the clubbing part afterwards.  We are seriously too old for clubbing.  

I wore my Tiziana Cervasio color block sweater dress, which I was going to return but never got around to doing so.  I'm actually glad I kept it because I kind of like it now.  It is still a little scratchy when I first put it on but I didn't feel it during the evening.  It's also rather short, but I think it's not bad with tights under...?!  At least it covers up on top... lol.



When I was in Europe I saw lots of girls wear short sweater dresses with boots and a leather jacket.  They all looked very cute, so here's my attempt to copy that look!  LOL!  I wore my Express jacket, and my Ash Orchid boots which I am really glad I bought because I can wear them to work or night out and they are super comfortable too!

I think Whiskey looks so funny in this picture.  Kind of grumpy... like he knew we were going to leave him soon!  Hehe.



Sunday 3/25
What I did:  A lot of weight circuit stations and treadmill sprints.  All while being still so sore from yesterday's boxing session!  It was a killer.

What I wore:  Lululemon Cross My Heart tank silver spoon, and matching Wunder Groove crop in whatever quilt waistband, and also my Adidas adizero adios 2 shoes.

I wonder if more colors will come out in the Cross My Heart tank.  I wouldn't mind another one!  I find this tank to be super flattering around the boobs.  It really lifts them up instead of smashing them down like most tanks/bras.

I usually hem my Lulu crops, but never got around to hemming these Wunder Grooves.  So this is how long they look on me... almost pants lol.



It is raining cats and dogs here today, and super cold!  So I wore my Turn Around LS and my senorita pink Inspire Jacket, with my Bear Paw boots!

I love this jacket on a rainy gray day because it's so bright and cheerful!

  1. Glad to hear you're back to a healthy back! Mom and Whiskey are both cute as a button... you're both so adorable! I guess the difference is that you look super with your clothes, and Whiskey looks best the way he does, hence saves lots of shopping $$ ! ;-)

    1. Hehe thanks! Though Whiskey def does not save us money - he has so many toys and treats, he's a super spoiled puppy! My husband and I were saying we should not have kids because we can't even imagine how spoiled they would be lol

  2. You look amazing in that sweater dress! I know you had to take a break from working out but you seem a little smaller than before (not that you need to lose any weight).

    1. Aww thanks! I actually have been on a "not eat crap" diet. So essentially eating the same types of food I used to but cut out the handfuls of chocolates here and there, or things like that. I do feel like my clothes are becoming looser on me, but didn't think it would really show on photos! It's amazing how food can change everything... Like my nutritionist once said, food is 90% and workout is only 10%!

    2. Ah, well I will let your progress be my inspiration. I'm the type who eats crap and says the workout will make up for it. Time to change that.

    4. Thanks! You know it is not that hard to stop eating crap if you just don't buy them. Lol. I always felt so dumb when I'd have a hard workout and then eat a bunch of calories. So now I'm saying NO MORE! Hahaha... well... 90% of the time. I still want to have the ability to enjoy junk food sometimes. =)

  5. Just stumbled on your blog, love your style! Any tips on buying lulu on ebay?

    1. Thank you! Hmm... I don't know if I have any tips... I only really buy on ebay when I see something I've missed out and really really want. Or if it's a really good deal too I guess. But I don't spend buy stuff that are super over priced. I've never really had a bad experience buying or selling lulu stuff on ebay though.

  7. The pictures with the stuffed dog are so cute! Have you read The Art of Racing in the Rain? I read it all on one flight while traveling for work - there is a cute part about the dog's stuffed dog. BTW, snagged a pair of ebb and flow crops - love them!

    1. No I have not read that book. Sounds just like Whiskey! Hehe. I have no time to read books other than my study material right now. But after my test (in June), I will look it up! What color ebb and flow crops did you get?

    2. I got the light grey ones. I had to get a size larger because it was all they had left, so I'm not sure if I'll have the see through problem. They are so comfortable that I just want to wear them all the time!
