Day 2 of bootcamp. I hung in there. My stomach feels a bit weird allowing solid food after the cleanse of yesterday but I am taking it slow. Met my sister for lunch which was so nice. Then it was back to the kids and ice skating and dinner….

Going Moto

This sporty and a 'bit out there' outfit was inspired by a look in Victoria's Secret Fall 2013 catalog:

Vest, Top - Forever 21
Pants - beach boutique
Sneakers - 
Necklace - Vintage

Ah, I am back to normal… My stomach is still a little uneasy but I feel like myself again.
Went to boot camp in the morning. It was brutal after taking off a week and a half. Plus I am doing this 1 day juice/tea cleanse from Vitality Tab. I got it at half price at groupon. The tastes were interesting. Don't think I will do this tea version again but might try the juice one or go back doing suja…
It is weird, I know but I was talking to my (7 yr old) son about it. He is such an old soul. It was like talking to a friend. He read with me the description of each juice and what it does. He, like me, is all about new tastes and experiences so he wants to taste them all. Even tasted the super spicy morning one.
It actually is not as hard because I was sick all day Monday and barely felt normal Tuesday eating very little so I think my stomach is already shrunk. Hoping to shed the extra 5 lbs I have seemed to accumulated before swim suit season arrives and in San Diego that is like in a month.

The feeling after the boot camp was marvelous. Forget how oh so good you feel after a hard core workout. Love it. Going again tomorrow...

Left of Center

 Another casual look. I am just in love with this sweater (below) so I wear it again and again. This time paired with slouchy slacks and added sneakers…. Plus the trench on top...
 The inspiration was from PSW Oct 2014 below…
I was initially going to add a teal colored sweater but it was too boxy over the slouchy pants and just didn't fit right so went with the black and white instead but added the teal trench for pop of color…

Trench, Sweater - Lulu Lemon
Shirt - J Crew
Pants - H&M
Sneakers - Superga
Earrings - Forever 21

Had a nice relaxing day taking my daughter ice skating in the afternoon. I even grocery shopped and finished loads and loads of laundry so I can star the week all ready to start my nutrition plan and workouts as I had to take a week off due to my flu.
I went to watch the Oscars at my friend's house and I just wasn't hungary to eat before.
I mixed up salty, sweet and spicy snacks and junk food mixed with white wine and raw veggies from the veggie tray.
Well the combination proved to be deadly as I threw up all night and all monday morning and it just drained me.
My friend joked when I told her that this was one way to start a 'cleansing'!!!
My parents came to rescue once again and picked up the kids and took them to their activities so I can continue getting it out of my system. Pulled it together just enough to go to my son's final basketball game Monday night…

After ice skating it rained for a little bit then sun came out and saw this beautiful rainbow:

Good Apples

 I wore this I think Saturday… I was sick then got better and then got sick again so everything is a bit of a blur these past days…
The inspiration for this was from the Boden Catalog:
 I liked this preppy combo with bright colors. Should have worn this on Valentine's day if I had thought about it. :)

Sweater - C Wonder
Shirt - Forever 21
Pants - Boden USA
Boots - Madden Girl
Necklace - Baublebar

Went to a USD women's basketball game to watch my daughter cheer with her cheer team during half time…
She loved it as usual and then we went out to dinner with my parents to celebrate…
