I am finally digging into my archives and pulling out some of my style diary images that I never posted. I have to tell you that I am SUPER sensitive about my style and to be completely honest it’s my never ending quest to be more stylish.
After my HuffPost feature I was even more apprehensive when I read a few no-so-friendly comments about me being fat and not curvy. But I say EFF EM! It’s my blog and my body and I love them both. So I’m posting all the fat and curvy pics of me that I want to *flips hair*…
I cannot promise this will be a weekly post BUT I will promise to do more style diary posts for those who love it!
Will Smith said it best when giving life advice, “You can tell how far in life you’ll go by the 5 people you spend the most amount of time with.”
One of my five people happen to be the oh so curvy, confident, and chic fashion blogger, Marie Denee of The Curvy Fashionista. Besides being my mentor, she’s basically the curvy blogger’s favorite curvy blogger. She knows what brands we should be crushing on, who should care less about, and what looks good on every curvy frame. So it’s only right that she has penned her first e-book, Curvy.Confident.Chic.

It’s weird how even if you didn’t loose any loved ones during 9/11 you still remember where you were on that day. 10 years ago I was at work in Columbia, Md when I heard on the radio that a plane had flown into one of the Twin Towers. Moments later … another. Shortly after, attacks on the Pentagon in DC. My job let us go home early that day because many had family and friends that they hadn’t heard from. Phone lines were crazy. You couldn’t call folks for hours and you had NO idea what was going on. For days we watching as they recovered the survivors and the dead. The images are still vivid in my mind and tears still form at the thought.
So today nothing was different. As I sat in my NY studio listening to the names of the victims called I cried. I heard the pain in the young teen’s voice as she read the names and then of her own father. I had to switch the station. I could bare NO more. When I did, this commercial aired. Continue reading →
NIKE TRAINING CLUB REVIEW UPDATE: 6 weeks later and I’ve lost and gained the same darn 8 lbs. A few donuts and chicken boxes (it’s a Bmore thing, just fried chicken in a box) later I am still the same weight. Why!? Because I didn’t use the app properly with my diet.
NIKE TRAINING CLUB REVIEW UPDATE: I truly love all my other flabby areas but when it (fat) starts moving to the front of my body it’s an issue. So this week I’ve been solely focusing on my abs. I have to share my routine with you guys because I really do see a difference. I just brought a tape measure so that I can track the inches lost. With me it’s not really about how much I weigh. It’s more of what size pants/dress can I now get into.
Check out my new favorite workout from the NTC app that I do 3 times a week. I think this week I will step it up to 5 times a week.
NIKE TRAINING CLUB REVIEW UPATE: I will not turn this into a pity party post, however, the NIKE Training Club app is way more than I expected. Don’t get me wrong it’s an awesome workout. But I think I’m going to need to ask the fairy exercise god mother to send me a free personal trainer to get me up off the couch (or from in front of my laptop) and get on the floor and “Just Do It”. This week I lost ZERO pounds BUT I gained NONE. So I guess I will give myself half a fist pump for maintaining my diet. Resisting a good piece of fried chicken is hard!
