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!:)

Mexican Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

Pulled Pork Lettuce Wraps

Sorry I have been so MIA lately! I have had so much going on and just not enough time for it all. Sometimes you just need to take a little breather in order to get yourself back on track! It’s been nice to have a little break and focus on my shop and my real life. Well, today I’m back and I have a wonderful recipe for you all! As most of you know, I have been trying to eat healthy ever since my Whole30 back in April, so it’s a good and healthy one! This recipe is not only healthy, but it is SO easy! It’s a crock pot meal, so it’s as easy as throwing something into your pot, setting it on high and going to work. The only work once you get home is to put the meat in to a wrap and add any toppings you would like! I used lettuce as a wrap for my “tacos”, but Wes used a tortilla for his.

Pulled Pork Taco Filling


  • Pork Roast
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • Chopped green chiles
  • 1 Onion
  • Salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper
  • Lettuce shells or tortillas
  • Cilantro (optional)


  1. Add pork roast, tomatoes, green chiles, onion, and spices to crock pot.
  2. Cook on low for 8 hours or high for 6 hours.
  3. Shred meat with fork.
  4. Serve in tortillas or lettuce shells!

Fit Friday: Day 12 of The Whole30

Whole30 Day 5
Well, it is day 12 of the whole30 for me, and I am SO proud of myself that I have made it this far! I honestly thought I would turn back after day 2, but I’ve stuck through it! Yay me! I’ll for sure be posting about some great recipes that I have been making for you guys to check out, because let me tell you…it gets hard to pick what to eat after a week or so! Lol! 

What I’ve Learned So Far:

  • Pretty much everything we eat has sugar added in to it. That was the thing that has made this so difficult for the last two weeks! EVERYTHING has sugar added in to it and it is CRAZY! I sat in the grocery store for HOURS both weeks just trying to find compliant things and it was rough. Let’s just say I made a LOT of salads with my homemade balsamic vinaigrette, I ate a lot of fruits and veggies, and we grilled a LOT. 
  • Planning every single one of your meals in advance is HARD. There are times where I just wanted to walk into a restaurant and order a cheeseburger and have it be over. I have already put SO much effort in to planning what I am going to make each day and I’m only half way through it. <sigh> But, like they always say, if you don’t plan, you plan to fail. So, on with my meal planning I will go for the next two weeks.
  • You will do a LOT of dishwashing. I have to wash the cutting board between each meal since I’m always cutting up veggies and meats. I use at least a plate for every meal and sometimes a plate and a bowl. I use other bowls and such to prepare meals…let’s just say…there are a lot of dishes and there are only two people in my house. I may be eating well, but I’m using a lot of water….lol…
  • You pretty much can’t eat out anywhere and if you do, you have to give the waiter a 10 minute long list of questions. A lot of places cook their meats in soybean oil which is non-compliant so that’s out. I’ve pretty much only ordered a salad with chicken and some veggies and my own homemade dressing every time I have eaten out. Anyone have any great tips on Whole30 compliant restaurants in the Austin area? I would love you forever

Whole30 Compliant

Bottom Line: How Do I Feel?

Well, I won’t lie to you…for the first few days I was constantly hungry! I had a headache, felt exhausted, and wanted to rip someone’s head off if I didn’t get some sugar pretty soon. Since then, it hasn’t been that bad. I do still have to talk myself down off of the cliff whenever I see ice cream or sweets on TV, but other than that I am full and satisfied with my meat and veggies! I have to say though, I’m not feeling this BURST of energy everyone else always talks about getting around half way through. Maybe it’ll hit me this weekend. <Fingers crossed>
If you’re interested in doing the whole30, I would recommend giving it a try. If anything, it’s great to know that you are in control of everything you are putting into your body. It’s also nice to know that I CAN go 12 days without sweets and live to tell the story. I will remember this (hopefully) next time I get those late night cravings for ice cream…
An today I leave with you some Whole30 humor…enjoy!

Fashion & Health

Aztec print cotton shorts

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! I spent mine in Houston with my best friend and we had a blast shopping, eating, gossiping, eating some more….having a bit of wine:) It was so nice to see her two weekends in a row, and I’m sure it will be strange not to see her again for a little while. The shopping was exceptionally wonderful since I had won a $150 Visa gift card at work on Friday! I bought two pairs of Kendra Scott earrings with it and even had some left over to run to Target! I’ll definitely be posting some outfits with my new earrings in the coming weeks because they are beautiful!Turquoise top with aztec shorts Turquoise chiffon tank with coral purse Turquoise chiffon top with aztec shorts Turquoise chiffon tank and aztec print cotton shorts

This outfit is SO comfortable! Heather and I actually bought the same one last weekend when she was in Austin. I got a turquoise top and she got a coral one:) I am so happy that comfy shorts like these are back in this spring! They make it so much easier to enjoy the hot summer here in Texas! When it’s 100 degrees outside, it’s not just about the amount of clothing you are wearing, the comfort level has to be high as well! I will get a lot of use out of these in the months to come I’m sure of it!

In other news, today marks the beginning of my first whole30. If you don’t know much about the whole30, you should go to the site and explore! It’s basically a way of detoxing your body over 30 days by cutting out all grains, dairy, soy, legumes, sugar, alcohol, carrageenan, MSG, or sulfites. According to a lot of testimonials and people I know personally, it really does make you feel amazing! It helps you stop cravings for all sorts of unhealthy things and MY real goal is to break my addiction to sugar and pasta! These two things are my biggest challenges when trying to eat healthy and I feel like if I can break my habit in 30 days I will be so much healthier over the long run and will feel better too! Your diet can be effecting you in so many negative ways. Poor diets can lead to aches and pains, inability to lose weight no matter how much you exercise, headaches, skin issues, digestive problems, allergies, infertility, etc. Now, the program doesn’t claim to fix all of these issues, as some may actually have another cause, but it’s worth a try to see if they are linked, right? So, here I am…trying it out. Wish me luck, it’s going to be rough for me for a few days! I’ll be sure to keep you guys all updated on my progress and how everything is going. If you are interested in starting a whole30 soon, let me know and maybe we can be email buddies and support each other!

How was everyone else’s Easter weekend, what did you do?
