Target try-on

Earlier this week on Instagram and stories we shared some of our newest Target finds that we are loving!  All of these are Summer perfect and affordable.  


Jumpsuit (also in black) // Sneakers // Rug

I love the cute, casual vibes of this jumpsuit!  It's a thin sweatshirt material and SO soft.  I'm wearing a small here but ended up ordering the x-small and it fits perfect.  Style with sandals or a cute pair of wedges for a more dressy, casual style.

Summer Business Style


Even though I don't work in the corporate world, I still find it necessary to own a great pair of black pants.  You know, the kind that can literally be paired with anything and worn anywhere!  And if you're one of those 9-5 Boss Babes, I know you need a pair of killer black pants.  This pair from White House Black Market is an updated and trendy version of the basic black pant!!



Cropped Wide Leg Pants c/o // One Shoulder Blouse c/o // Block Heels c/o, also in tan here 

White House Black Market is known for their classic black and white neutrals, which I love.  I've always been a fan of wearing black.  It's so chic and classic and works in any season.  But their new Summer Collection also includes some fun colors like citron and pretty purple, as in the blouse I'm wearing here.  And yes most of their pieces are tailored for the workplace, they also offer a great selection of pieces for the non-working woman too!

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Mother's Day is right around the corner - literally!  Just a few days away.  But no worries, there is still time to find the perfect gift.  
As mom's ourselves we can appreciate how nice a thoughtful gift is.  
Typically we love to give our mom huge hanging baskets for her front porch!  She loves flowers and this is a gift she enjoys all Summer long.



 We decided it would be fun to round up a few more items that we think would be perfect to surprise your mom with.

Three random things this week + all your Dysport/Botox questions answered with Juvly

Three things this week:

1.  I made enchiladas last night.  Does your family like Mexican food?  I could eat it all the time!!  Anyway - I always make homemade enchilada sauce.  It's a MUST!  Seriously makes such a big difference.  Here is my favorite enchilada sauce recipe.  Try it and let me know what you think!

2.  Want to hear the truth?  My daughter (14 years old) picked out and bought this button front cami this past weekend.  I thought it was SO cute!  We are just about the same size so I borrowed it.  Button details are so popular right now and I love them here mixed with stripes.  What makes this cami so good are the adjustable straps.  It's available in a few stripe colors and 2 solid colors.  I (my daughter) has an xs.  

3. Bye bye wrinkles.  It's been a few months since going to Juvly Aesthetics for Dysport.  Goodness do I love visiting them.  I've been so happy with the change (aka disappearance) of my forehead wrinkles.  I'm sharing a code down below for a discount on your first dysport treatment at Juvly and answering the most popular questions I get asked.

Faster Way to Fat Loss - our first round thoughts and pictures

If you follow us on Instagram Stories, then you know we've been doing the Faster Way to Fat Loss program.  It's a 7 week program, the first week being prep week.  It combines intermittent fasting with carb cycling for real fat loss.

We are almost to the end of this round, currently in the middle of the last week.  We wanted to go ahead and share our before/after stats as well as our overall thoughts on the program now, because the next round starts Monday the 29th.  If this is something you're interested in doing with us, you can sign up here.

Ok - before we share our before/after pictures we thought it would be important to share "why" we decided to do Faster Way to Fat Loss .


Katey:
 I've been working out consistently for years but haven't toned up in a few stubborn areas, like my stomach from having 3 kids!!  I didn't join this program to loose weight -  mainly just to tighten up.  In the 6 week program, I was on vacation for 2 of those weeks.  I continued with the intermittent fasting but did indulge a bit while on vacation.  As we all should!!!  The program totally works with your real life!! 

Here are my stats:
Before - Feb. 24th 2019
119 lbs

After - April 23rd 2019
116 lbs

Overall, I lost 3 1/4 inches.  These inches were lost around my midsection, hips, and thighs.



Betsy:
I used to work out religiously, but then got burned out and for the past year or so, have done next to no working out.  I went into this plan hoping to tone up a bit and of course lose a little fat!!  I was by no means over-weight and didn't have much to lose, but we all have our areas we want to improve!

Here are my stats:
Before - March 11th 2019
123 lbs.

After - April 23rd 2019
118 lbs.

Overall, I lost 4 1/2 inches.  I've noticed that my arms and legs are more toned and my stomach is less bloated.  




Both Betsy and I had never done a carb-cycling/intermittent fasting program before.  It was eye-opening.  We were both amazed at how we had actually not been eating enough food throughout the day.  In fact, on this program, there were many days that it was tough to reach the full caloric intake. 

With anything, there is always positive and negatives.  Here are our true thoughts on Faster Way to Fat Loss. 

THE GOOD 

*You can eat real food.  No foods are off limits as long as you plug them in and they fit within your daily allowances.
*You aren't depriving yourself of food.  There is no calorie restricting on this plan.  You actually eat a lot of food.
*It fits into real life
*With the program, you are given all the info/help/support you need to succeed.  You are given a certified coach to lead you and a Facebook team to support you.  This includes meal ideas and workouts.
*It's about progress...not perfection.  If you miss your numbers one day, you just jump back into it the next day and try harder.  

THE BAD

*Coffee!!!  There is a difference of opinion, but our coach suggests no half-n-half or creamer with your coffee before you break your fast.  This was the hardest part in the beginning.  We have since adjusted, but if you are a coffee lover like us, it's hard.  (Nutpods and almond milk are allowed - and we share our go-to morning coffee often on stories)
*The evening wine.  Who doesn't love a glass of wine at night? I did not drink wine on low carb days.  On full macro days, I was able to enjoy a glass or two.  You have to be careful, however, because it technically still needs to be consumed in the eating window.  There were instances where I did not stick to this.  I'm happy to share more details on this if you all would like.    
*Eating dinner earlier.  With our kids' busy schedules, we found ourself not eating dinner until 8-9:00.  It's just how life is right now.  We've tried to make some adjustments to get finished eating by about 7:00 to start our fasting period, but some nights we didn't finish eating until 9.  That pushed our morning meal the next day back a little.  
*Treats!!  Not gonna lie.  We love our treats and I'm (Betsy) a huge baker and find relaxation in baking.  So this has been hard for me.  Treats are saved for Saturdays with FWTFL.  On the plus side of this, I have learned to try new recipes to bake!!


If you've done FWTFL, let us know your results and thoughts.  We'd love to hear your story.
