With my two little ones off to school during the week and my oldest off to her second year in college, I'm starting to rethink my jeans and navy blue sweatshirt 'uniform'. Also, I've been watching far too much "Rachel Zoe Project" (seriously. One really should be enough) and "Project Runway" (Tim made me sad when he was so mean).
SparkPeople is helping me again. Check it out! Last year I did this program for two months and lost 25 lbs. Then I got sick and stalled. Sigh. I did keep it off so that makes gives me some comfort.
Best of all, both of these programs are free and work. What more could I really ask? Oh I know. They both have great apps if you have an iPhone or iTouch. (Couch to 5K SparkPeople) There may be more for the Blackberry but I'm clueless on that front. Here's a list of Apple Apps for getting healthy.
SO! With all that said, I need new clothes or will. I've been trying to be more 'hip'. Sadly I'm much like the first 42 years. Clueless. My oldest tells me I like girly boho. Before she leaves I'm hoping she'll hook me up so I look a bit smarter and can find patterns to make my own things too.
I did find these GREAT jeans at the Gap, that are supposed to be 'magical' for everyone, according to Women's Health Magazine. I've never been able to make jeans so I cheated and bought some. I'm hoping to take a class from Sandra Betzina to learn how.
Here's the trends to look for this fall. I'm not sure where I'd ever wear over the knee boots. While I always love a thin cord, but 'skinny' cords? No thanks. Not for this mom. I actually spied jean leggings at TJMaxx yesterday and didn't know if I should laugh or cry. Not for me, thanks. Not for most moms I know either.
Honestly, everything looks like what I wore in high school. In 1986. So I'm guessing that is a trend? I didn't care much for it back then and not the resurgence either. Again, time to sew my own stuff.
I have been poking around a little on the Kwik Sew site and found some new patterns I'm going to try out:
