Buenos dias amigos!

I wanted to share more pictures from our mini adventure on the metro rail / jaunt into DC. As usual, no filters; taken with Samsung Galaxy Note 3.

Before I go, I’ll leave you with today’s inspo…

Don’t worry about yesterday, you can’t change it. Don’t worry about tomorrow, tomorrow will worry about itself. Live in today and enjoy the little moments. Live without regrets because you will not get it back when it becomes yesterday.

Just remember, you definitely cannot control what happens tomorrow or yesterday, only today.

Have a blessed day!

Hey, hey!

I’m hoping everyone had a fantastic weekend doing all sorts of fun stuff and making memories to last a lifetime.

We had the best time this weekend. I won’t go into details, but here’s what we did, briefly. This past Saturday, the new rail line, Silver Line, officially launched and riders could take the new line into the city. Aria and I were one of hundreds of riders who too train. It was so much, especially for her. Here we are from beginning of the line and in Chinatown, DC.

I debated going to the launch ceremony, but I’m soooooooooo happy I did. Her giggles were so worth it. And then we spent the rest of the weekend exploring, playing in fountain water, and shopping for last minute groceries. We picked up some freshly cut grocery store flowers. (See pictures above).

How was your weekend?

Soooooooooo…You’re probably all thinking,  “why the hell is she posting all these selfies?”

Well, let me tell you. Yesterday I had on what I thought was a cool outfit. I had a few minutes to spare. I know, shocker! So thought what better way to spend it than do a shoot. Welllllll….those damn bloodsuckers, aka, mosquitoes had other plans. They literally bombarded me and in just oh, IDK, under five minutes I received at least thirty bites. Thirty effing bites! So you know what I called it a day! I literally cried from all the sting. It was awful, not gonna lie, it took me two glasses if vino to deal. My poor daughter was so sweet, she hugged and kissed me. [Insert melting heart]

Anyway, I turned my scarf into a turban and started to take selfies. Because that’s how you’re supposed to deal with mosquitoe bites pain. Hey, when life gives you (sweet)lemons you make lemonade. Lol!

I’m just happy it’s FRIDAY!

Weekend Recap / InstaG

{Our new favorite snacks: I just started buying these Belvita nutritional snack bars, and I must say they’re delicious and healthy. With the chocolate flavor, I feel like I get my nutrients and indulge at the same time–win/win.

Since Aria was a baby she’s been Horizon Organic milk, and so it’s no surprise that of all the string cheeses we’ve tried, this is her favorite.

image

Sunday was amazing…I mean, everyday is amazing with this one but especially so yesterday. She was especially easygoing, and not her usual toddle self. I didn’t see mt phone much yesterday because I was 110% focus on her and whatever we were doing. We even danced in the middle of the ice cream shop because she asked me to dance with her. Ah, yes, I’m in love! :)

Bedside view of this special bouquet + my new “Unbroken” book. Btw, this vintage nightstand/lamp combo was $5 from Goodwill.

While on the #iamGlorgetsfit personal fitness challenge, I eat more salads, fruits and vegetables. I have completely given up carbs. Next in the process is cutting out alcohol. Btw, new post coming up this week on health tips on what you should be doing to lose weight.

image

This patriotic stripes outfit from last week was one of my favorites.

image

And this cotton embroidered white maxi dress from Old Navy is seriously THE cutest thing. I need one in adult size, Old Navy.

She’s not a fan of me washing her super curly hair, but the after I do, it looks like thia–beautiful, curly, gorgeous, and ridiculously soft and bouncy! It’s so long too. 

image

Almonds! My go-to snack. The health benefits are not bad either. Add green tea and you’re literally uping your antioxidants level.

Inspiration for Aria’s new room decor. We’ve reached the “Tea” party phase so I’m on the lookout for a good set of tea tables for little girls.

I walk every day….

Hi guys!

So here’s the deal, I’m overweight. And I’m not just saying that, it’s a legitimate statement. My BMI for my height + weight is so disproportionate. I’m not going to go into all the medical stuff, but the point is that I have decided to do something about it.

Lately, I have just been slacking when it comes to my diet that I’ve allowed it linger around for much too long. And I’m ready to part ways with my bad habits…
Follow me on Instagram for daily fitness, health, and inspirational updates. Here on the blog, I plan to post weekly updates on my diet, healthy recipes, and health-related on achieving a healthy lifestyle.

What am I doing about it?
This past weekend I started a personal fitness challenge, called #iamGlorgetsfit. My ultimate goal for the next six months to a year is to eat healthier, work out often, and to make better choices so that I can improve my overall health. (Notice I didn’t say anything about looking better).

So far, Week 1….

I’m feeling great; I went on a 3 miles run/hike over the weekend, been walking 45 minutes every day during my lunch break, and I’ve also been packing healthy lunches and snacks.

The most important part of the weight loss process is realizing that you have some work to do. Don’t focus on the work, focus on your journey and goal. If you focus on your journey you’ll learn things about yourself, especially things that trigger stress and emotional eating. I’m an emotional eater so I have learned to be hyper-aware about the people, situations, and things that drives me to stuff my face.

Staying focus on my goal is an important part of my weight loss journey. I have identified two important goals: eat healthier and workout frequently. For me, these two goals are crucial because my life is full of activities, planning, schedules, meetings, deadlines, etc. Being an emotional eater, I need to watch what I put in my mouth, and most importantly when. Being aware of the situations that triggers your eating will help you improve your eating habits.

Staying focus for me is not just about what I put in my mouth and when, but it also has to be extremely healthy, too. Like, say I’m craving carbs or sweets, I don’t deprive myself. I go for what I crave, but I crave lightly by limiting my portions. Or better yet finding a healthier versions of my food cravings and allowing myself to indulge.

Lastly, exercising self control is another way that I stay focus on my goal. For example, few weeks ago, I went to a lunch meeting with my coworkers to an Irish Restaurant. I knew I’d be faced with so many choices, so what I did was look at the menu online ahead of time to see what healthy choices they had. This saved me from making an emotional decision to order based on what the others ordered or how hungry I was feeling. (Peer pressure is real, my friends even for us adults).

Next time, I’ll tell you how I’ll be tracking my progress, and I’m also working on a post on the importance of doing this one thing that could essentially change the way you think. (Hint it’s what you do or don’t do at night). Stay tuned, follow, and share your own tips, comments, or questions below. And please share with others needing a a little encouragement. We’re all in it together.

Thanks for reading!

Flashback Friday In 11 Photos on 7-Eleven

Happy Flashback Friday and 7-Eleven Day, everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you pictures from last year that time when I covered a wall in my master with glossy magazine pages. You may have seen it as backdrop for a few OOTD posts. This was a such a fun, yet tedious DIY project. It took me a couple of weeks to cover the wall mostly because I kept taking breaks in between. This was my alternative to your traditional wallpaper. It serves as an inspirational board, too. Glossy fashion magazine ad campaigns are works of art, in my opinion, so why not have it display where I can enjoy ‘em every day!

And how cute are my little models? I can’t believe how big Aria has gotten since then. And my Jolie is a year older. Man they grow up so fast!

If you’re interested in creating your magazine wallpaper art, it’s super easy. 1. Tear out pages of your favorite fashion ad campaigns from your favorite glossies
2. Using clear 3M tape, tape your pages onto a wall of your choice in any order–it doesn’t have to be perfect–organized chaos
3. Get inspired, enjoy! 

Using clear tape means no damage to walls when you take it down. My daughter used to like to tear them off, but now she like pointing out different objects or colors.

I cannot believe it is mid July already. We’re halfway through the year, if you can believe it. Oh, and guess what? There’s a birthday every month starting this month through the end of year. It’s kind of exciting, and it means Aria and I will be busy crafting personalized messages for everyone. So stay tuned…

I hope you all have a fantastic start to the weekend. Happy Friday!

Xxg ✌ 💕 💋 🌹
