Peach and Mint Shift

Coral Shift Dress

This dress makes me happy. Not just because it’s super cute….it’s much more than that. I bought this dress over a year ago online. When I received it, it was tight on me. I loved it, and as we always do I kept it for “when I loose weight.” Well, that didn’t happen for months…and then it was past the return policy and it just sat in my closet. I reached for it back in July when I was packing for a friends wedding weekend and decided that I would try it on again just in case. It fits! It actually fits! This is the glory of loosing 23 pounds! Yes, you read that right….since April, I have lost 23 pounds! It’s the little things like fitting into your new favorite dress, or weighing less than you did when you got married….those are the things that make this healthy living thing worth it for me:) That, and just feeling so much better about life in general!Peach and Mint Shift DressPeach and Mint OUtfitPeach and Mint Lulus dressPeach and mint dress with gold accessoriesMint and peach floral shift dressCoral and Mint Shift DressCoral and Mint Shift Dress

If you’re curious about how I lost my first 13 pounds, you can read about the Whole30 here. Since then I have been working out and eating Whole30 during the week. I let myself have things I probably shouldn’t on weekends and usually regret it (lol), but I have continued to loose weight pretty consistently and I think it has a lot to do with not completely depriving myself. I will be writing a whole post on my weight loss once I reach 25 pounds, so stay tuned!:)

Black Floral Shift

Old Navy Shift DressIt’s been such a busy week for me. I’ve had so much to do at work and I have finally been getting back to working out after a week of having bronchitis. On top of that, I’ve had a lot of orders to fill and I’ve been trying to get my house back into shape after not feeling like cleaning with my illness. Needless to say, blogging on Monday and Tuesday didn’t happen, but even though it’s late I was bound and determined to get a style post up tonight! Woohoo! It is what I wore Wednesday after all, eh? Haha! Today’s outfit is one of my recent faves. I am so glad that I bought this dress earlier in the summer because I have worn it SO many times! It’s comfy AND it’s cute…oh and the necklace I got in my rocksbox back when I bought it matched so well that I bought it:) Tehehe!Rocksbox statement necklaceOld Navy black and floral dressCoral and green outfitBlack and green floral dressInitial bangle braceletBlack floral Old Navy Shift DressGet The Look:

I knew that I needed to keep this necklace when I wore it to dinner with my parents and my Mom told me that it looked like it was made for this dress. She talked me into it…you know, really twisted my arm;-) Haha! You can get your first month of Rocksbox for free with the code meganbff58. Who doesn’t want free designer jewelry in their mailbox?! :)Well, I’m off for the night…I will see you lovelies later!

Gold dot tee with pink skirtLife lately has been hectic. Work has been busy, my shop has been busy, Wes and I have both been a little sick….and guess what gets put on the back burner? That’s right, the good old blog. I’m okay with it though. I’ve been posting 5 days a week for the last 2 years and I guess it’s just time to cool off a little. Step back and see where I want to take it all. If you haven’t noticed, I have been posting a lot more about food and health over the last few months a long with my outfit posts. I think that’s where All That Glitters is headed. What started as purely just style blogging, has taken a turn to lifestyle. I love to post all of my outfits and will continue to do so, but I want to talk about more than just style. Healthy eating and living is one of the biggest things in my life right now, so it just seems right to talk about it more and more here on the blog:)

Once we get to a point in our lives where kids are on the horizon, I’m sure you’ll see a little swing over into plenty of baby posts…but for now food, health, style, and my life in general is where its at! I hope you all stick around with me through this busy time in my life just as you always have in the past! I wouldn’t be here without you! :)

Of course I didn’t notice my belt being all wonky until I was done with photos…dammit! lol! But, anyways, this outfit just screams happiness to me. The colors are bright, there are gold polka dots involved…and the necklace is just that, pure happiness. No wonder the boutique it is from is called the Happiness Boutique! If my accessories all came from there I would be happy all the time:) Haha! This one has really caught my eye and I might be needing it before we make our trip to London this fall…

You see how I did that? Slipped in a trip to London without having ever mentioned it before? Haha! Well, we’re doing it! We’re making a trip to London and Paris later on this fall and I am BEYOND ecstatic! If you guys have any must dos (especially in Paris) let me know in the comments below!

Fit Friday: Motivation

It has been a while! I have been so busy lately it isn’t even funny! Between vacation, working out, extra duties at work, and my shop orders I have had NO time for blogging:( That should change this next week though, I have a little bit of extra time and I plan to make some room for my blog:)
stay motivated to work out
Today’s topic is one that I have struggled with for years. Motivation. Specifically getting the motivation to work out. Since high school I have been that girl who works out in excess for a few months, then stops for a few months…then works out…then stops. You get the picture. Usually my initial motivation to work out is weight gain or an upcoming event, then once that weight is gone or the event is over with, I lose any and all motivation again. I have been doing super well with my exercise and healthy eating journey so far this year and have so far lost 20lbs (yay!), but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still struggle with motivation. I’m going to talk about a few different things that have been great motivation for me this year and hopefully they can help you too!
1. Group Fitness: Having an instructor and classmates who will get on your case if you aren’t coming is one of the biggest motivators for me. I found this out when I joined my first bootcamp last summer. If I had someone to hold me accountable I was MUCH more likely to get my butt going. Heading to the gym by myself has always ended in failure to me, but with boot camps, I have been working out pretty consistently since last summer:) Yay me!
2. Babies: This will sound really dumb to all the men out there (whom I’m pretty sure don’t read my blog, lol), but having a family within the next 5 years is a huge motivator for me. I want to be as healthy as I can possibly be when that time comes, not just for me but for my future babies as well. If I am healthy and active, chances are, they will be too:) I also want to look smokin’ BEFORE I get preggo so that I will continue to be healthy during and after. It’s much easier to bounce back when you’re already in shape! Not to mention, giving birth is hard on your body and you are much more prepared for it when you are in shape!
3. Cute Work Out Gear: Yes, it’s sad, but I am a girl and clothes are a great motivation for me! Wearing cute clothes while I go exercise makes me happy. Giving myself a goal that ends with new work out clothes also makes me happy. Really, it’s a win win…I work out and I look cute, and after a while of exercise I look even cuter. I have really fallen in love with printed work out leggings and shorts lately! Some of my favorites are these Albion Fit floral and stripes leggings and these RBX Active camo leggings. I’m not going to lie, I love them all so much I sometimes wear them as regular leggings when I’m not at the gym. Remember, this is a no judgement zone! Lol!

I Love These Shorts

Pink and black and white

I love these shorts! I have them in every color…well, not every color…but quite a few! Old Navy for the win! I love when you find a good pair of shorts that just fits well. I always make sure to get a few pairs of something when I decide I really like it:) If you haven’t tried Old Navy’s shorts lately, you should give them a shot. They aren’t too short and they are super comfortable. I just can’t do the short shorts at my age. I know I’m not old, but I just don’t feel appropriate. Lol…I do love the confidence that loosing a little weight and gaining some leg muscles has given me. I used to hate shorts, but have slowly but surely gotten more comfortable in them:)

This week couldn’t have gone by any slower. I don’t know why, I was so busy at work but the days just dragged on. I cannot wait until the weekend so that I can relax and get some work done around the yard. I hope you all are having a better week than I am…
