A party look with a pop of hot pink!
I am so in love with this new skirt! The color combo of olive green with hot pink is just stunning. I paired it with an all black look so that the skirt really popped! The fullness of the skirt makes it a flattering fit. This black fur vest is another great addition to my closet. It really adds a little something extra to an outfit. The vest is currently 50% off making it only $62.50. It's a shorter length than my other favorite fur vest, but I'm really liking that with certain looks.
It's that time of year for parties!! And that means cocktails, appetizers and desserts (Christmas cookies!)!!! With our busy holiday schedules there is usually not so much extra time for exercise. I don't know about you, but one of the reasons I exercise is so that I can indulge every
day once in awhile. It's unrealistic to think that we can loose weight during this time of year, but we can at least maintain where we currently are. The average American gains 7-10 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years. Here are some strategies to help you get through the final few weeks of the holiday season without this weight gain:
**Always eat a little something healthy at home before a party, like an apple. Never go starving or you'll end up eating anything in sight. And don't stand next to the food table, you'll nibble without even thinking about it.
**If you're taking a dish to a party, take something healthy, like a veggie tray, that you know you can fill up on then indulge in a little treat or two.
**You can still have treats at a party, but take small pieces and choose wisely. Don't waste your treat on something you don't really like. I'm not going for the everyday chocolate chip cookie, I'm going for the decadent dessert that I don't normally eat.
**If you want to drink alcohol, choose wine or light beer. And drink water instead of sugar-loaded punches.
**Everything in moderation. One night of treats at a party isn't going to ruin your hard work. Just get back on your healthy eating routine the next day.
Holiday time with friends and family is supposed to be enjoyable. So don't stress about it.
