Hello Everyone. I hope you all had a great weekend. My was a nice one. We cleaned out the basement. Which we found tons of my old childhood stuff. That we knew some of it was down there and something we found. That I thought I lost. Like all my old dairy. I start writing in them in 1996 to 2006. 

I wore this outfit on Saturday to go out to dinner with my hubby. The skirt I'm wearing is one my favorite. Sadly it doesn't get worn much do to it on the short side. Which the last time I wore this skirt was 3 years ago.  Also my lace legging are another item I rediscover on Saturday and decide they would work great under the skirt. The last time I wore them was 2 years ago. 

On a non-scale victory. The last time I wore this vest I couldn't button it. Which was May 14, 2014 and now I can. My hard work is paying off.

Clark Flip Flops From Macy's Gift From Hubby

Happy Friday Everyone. This afternoon I'm going out to lunch with one of my friends. Who I haven't seen in a long time. So I decide to go with a relax outfit for are lunch date. Which I haven't worn this A&F shirt in 3 year. I have a good amount of A&F clothes that I haven't worn in a long time. My husband used to be obessed with there clothes. So for my 21st birthday he surprised me with a tons of clothes from there that he order offline. We no longer buy clothes from there. Mainly do to there not are style. 

My short are another item I haven't worn in 3 years. Which I'm not a short person. I wish I could tell you why but I can't. This year I told myself I need to add more short to my closet. Which I haven't and more an lucky won't. Due to I don't wear them that much. Plus over here in Germany the weather can be funny in the summer. One day it can be hot as all get out. Then the next it feel like fall weather. 

Another item that hasn't been on the blog in a long time are my flip flop. The last outfit post I did with wearing them was 2 years ago. I do wear these flip flop a lot. Since they are super comfortable. 

This weekend kicks off the German/American Fest. Which I'm not sure if we will go to it this weekend or not. We are for sure going on 4th of July. That way we can see the fireworks.

Tough it out Tuesday: Insanity Update

Top Row May 18, 2014: Bottom Row June 22, 2014

Hello Everyone. It's been 30 day since I wrote that I was going to be doing Insanity. As you can see in the picture my body has change a little. It still a work in process. I'm happy with the small result that I have gotten so far.  I can't wait to start seeing more. 

Which these last two weeks I have slightly fallin off the wagon. I haven't been working out 6 days a week like I was. I have been doing more walking and counting that as my work out. I need to get back on track again and start doing the insanity work outs again.  I'm not going to lie there were days that I skipped the insanity workouts and did a 10 minute trainer instead. They also were day that I did both work outs.

I have been working out for a total of two month now. Which the first month I did a mixture of home workout videos. Then second month I did insanity and 10 minute trainers. As a result from eating right and working out. I have now hit my first goal weight which was to get back down to 2013 summer weight. Which was 135.  I still have a good way to get to my Michigan weight but I know I can do it.  

Instead of moving on to the second month of insanity. I'm going to redo the first month over again. Which I will do another update post on  how things are going in a month. 

Here are my total results.
Starting weight April ~143
May~ 137.6 ~ Mixture of workouts
June~133.6 ~ Insanity and 10 minute trainer
Total weight lost~9.4 pounds 

Please no negative comment.

Hello Everyone, Today I'm linking up with Venus Trapped in Mars and Helene in Between for #totalsocial. This month theme is your 9 to 5 job.  I know some are you probably wonder what I do for a living. Well I used to work in retail for 10 years. The Store I used to work at are Target,Save a lot, AAFES(Army&Air Force Exchange), Charlotte Russe and DSW(Designer Shoe Warehouse).  In all of these store I was a cashier, trainer and stocker. When I worked at AAFES I was also a coffee barista. Which I had fun making people coffee and they must have been good because they kept coming back. I also had special roles at my other jobs beside just being a cashier. At CR I was an assist manager. When I work at DSW in charge of putting all the  hosiery out. Which I love doing but my check book didn't.
In March of 2013 I quit my retail job at DSW. To move back to Germany. That's when my husband told me I didn't have to work. So I became a housewife. Which most day are filled with running errand and cleaning house. Almost everyday I do laundry. Still trying to figure out. How two people wear so much clothes.  In between cleaning the house and running errands. I workout and on day I don't have much going on. I might go out to lunch with friends. I have been a housewife for the past year. There days I enjoy not having to work outside of the home. Then there days I miss not working outside of the house. I'm lucky that I don't have to work outside of the house if I don't want to.

  *I picked this tank top up almost 2 weeks ago from the recycling center. When I was there dropping off boxes. Which I'm so happy I find this tank top. It prefect to throw on to run some errands in. Like today.
