My Thoughts on Fashion, Food, Fitness and my weight loss and skin removal Journey

7 Months Post Thigh Tuck Recovery and Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot believe it has been 7 months since I had an inner thigh tuck on my legs and 5 months since having a skin graft on my leg! Time sure does fly when you are having fun … or in pain whichever you want to call it haha I have been getting a lot of questions about how I am doing now, post-surgery and how things are feeling and healing. So I decided to do a little Q&A style blog post and answer the top questions I have been receiving! If I did not answer one of your questions, leave it down below in the comments and I will be sure to answer your question as well. So let’s get this Q&A going!!! How am I feeling now? Well, I feel great! The incisions/scars have loosened up so much and I have full range of motion in both legs now. The skin graft is healing as beautifully as a skin graft can heal and is fading nicely. There still is a little bit of tightness in the area where the skin graft is and if I do a lot of squats, ride the bike too fast, or do jumping/stepping motions. When I workout

Something NEW!!! Disney, and Disneyland…How have they helped me to become who I am today?

Welcome to my NEW Disney Series! I am so excited to be starting this new Blog Series!!! The fact that I love Disney is no secret, and if for some reason you missed that little fact about me, now you know! Disney holds a special place in my heart. My whole family is Disney fans. We have been going to Disneyland at least once a year since I was born..well actually since I was in my moms stomach. Ever since I started sharing my whole fitness/weight loss journey, I have put off sharing much about my love for Disney, because I thought no one would care. So I just shared my weight loss and skin removal journey. I think it is time to introduce/share this different side of my story. This new side to my journey. Something that is a big part of my life, my journey, and is part of what makes me, me. I know this Disney Series might not be for everyone and that is ok!!! If you believe in the magic and dreams and that anything is possible with a little faith, love and pixie dust than you have come to the right place. This new series will be for

Nordstrom anniversary sale

My Favorites from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2019

It’s SHOPPING time! It’s one of my favorite times of the year, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! I LOVE shopping, this sale, for many reasons. First reason, and maybe the most obvious is that everything is on sale! It’s not like a regular sale where they old items and things that no one is buying, they are brand new items for the fall at a discounted price. The sale is only running through August 4, and on August 5th, prices go back up to the regular price. If you see something that you love, pick it up and fast!!! Things do sell out VERY quickly but make sure to keep checking the site and in-store if something that you love is sold out! Nordstrom might restock some items or if people return items you may be able to grab them. The other reason that I love this sale is that along my journey of losing over 300 pounds, I loved treating myself to new items as little treats and rewards along the way. Also since my body was changing, and is changing so much, getting items that are good quality but not the full price is great! Why do I Shop

chocolate coconut peanut butter smoothie recipe

Chocolate Coconut Peanut Butter Protein Smoothie Recipe for those Extra Warm Days when you need a Sweet Treat

I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts getting warmer, there is nothing I like more than a smoothie.  Better yet…a chocolate smoothie!  I am a girl who loves her chocolate.  My favorite dessert would be chocolate cake with chocolate ice cream, chocolate sauce, and …rainbow sprinkles!  You thought I would say chocolate sprinkles, didn’t you? Losing over 300 pounds, I had to find alternatives and ways to still enjoy chocolate…just in moderation and in healthier ways.  So while I do enjoy cake and ice cream every once and a while, I found a healthier way to satisfy my chocolate tooth while keeping my health and fitness goals in mind.  This chocolate protein smoothie with peanut butter and coconut is not only my favorite smoothie, but it is something that I can enjoy guilt-free every single day!  I hope that you all enjoy this chocolate protein smoothie recipe just as much as I do! For smoothies, I like using powdered peanut butter, but I also love adding real natural peanut or almond butter too.  You can even add some spinach to this to get in some more greens!  I like using almond milk, but of course, your milk option is up to you!  This chocolate protein powder I
