I've been trying to eat really well this week, since I didn't do that great last week and therefore still carried some of the extra weight and bloat from my trip. I think I'm finally back to normal! Thank goodness. For some reason, lately I've been finding it harder to bounce back to normal from a cheat meal, let alone a vacation. Maybe it's because I'm getting older lol. Oh the sad reality.
But, I did finish off my last remnant from Paris - this awesome nougat I got from the posh supermarket on the basement level of the Gallerie Lafayette! I love nougats. We don't get them like this in the US. This one was a big wedge, like a piece of cake!
Definitely not cheap. But so worth it lol.
I ate that in no time.
So I feel like I had to share my great find - I went to dinner last Sunday night, and wore the Soprano dress I bought a couple years ago and almost never wear. Mainly because it matched my awesome new Swarovski turtle charm that my boyfriend got me in Amsterdam!
Pictures just cannot do this cute charm justice. It moves in person! All 4 legs actually. So so cute!
A couple close ups, but again, you cannot appreciate the cuteness unless you hold it in your hand:
Ok, steering back on topic now. Despite being very unwilling, I actually made it to the gym 5 times this week and completed all my weight and cardio workouts!
What I did: Lower body weights.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Dantelle tank, with Lululemon Free To Be bra in faded zap under. Lululemon Pace crop, and Nike Free Bionics.
What I did: Shoulder/tri weights, followed by 30 minutes on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lululemon Cross My Heart tank in silver spoon, and Lululemon wunder under crops in bordeaux drama with Nike Free 3.0s.
Lululemon Forme Jacket in savasana camo fatigue green as to and from:
What I did: Glute/back/bi workout.
What I wore: New Nike Dri Fit Touch Breeze tank in cobalt blue, with Lorna Jane Lustre sport bra in sparkle fluro orange under. Lululemon Mod Moves crop, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in cobalt blue/bright mango. Went the matchy matchy route!
I love that these shoes go with so many things I have. But I guess I also bought this top to go with the shoes lol:
Splits59 Venus jacket as to and from. I continued the matchy matchy theme - love that the jacket and crops both have black and gray tones! This is one of my favorite jackets I've ever bought. I still can't believe they sold it to me for $5 at the sample sale! It's super comfy and the colorblocking is very figure flattering.
Friday 9/5 - Slept in again!
What I did: Lower body weights, then about 30 minutes of a little treadmill workout with plyo work mixed in.
What I wore: Splits59 Sprint V-Back tank with Lorna Jane Quick Step bra under. Lululemon Wunder Under crops in cadet pretty palm, and Nike Free 5.0 TR Fit 4 shoes in fusion pink/atomic mango.
What I did: Upper body superset weights, then 30 minutes on the gauntlet.
What I wore: Lorna Jane Radah tank in hot flamingo marl, with Lorna Jane Lola bra in sparkle gray marl under. Lululemon Speed Short in savasana camo fatigue green, and same shoes as yesterday! Love that these shoes have pink, violet, and orange hues in them so they go with quite a bit of tops I have!
Well, I'm glad this long week is over! I am going to be positive and think that the coming week can only be better lol. I hope I have pushed past my lack of motivation issue as well!
