Fashion

I like to call my sense of style Boho-Chic…. LoL  I say this because I love structured classic pieces (sheath dresses and cardigans) but then I also like to dress bohemian with my colors and different type of fabrics… I love to dress up and look gorgeous at all times but with the type of job I have now I am not able to do so. I work at a prison where I must be covered up and with out my clothes being too tight as well. So I have decided to document my outfits that I wear to work because I think it will challenge me 1. I cannot buy anything and 2. I won’t have to look the same on a daily basis.

The challenges I have

1. Not buying any new clothes

2. No tight or low cut shirts

3. No open toe (doesn’t matter now it’s fall)

4. Don’t want to look sexy, sends the wrong message

5. Can’t wear heels

6. I spend 6 of the 8 hours on my feet

Those of you who work with the same type of restrictions, chime in and help me out!

 

Self-Control

What does this word mean to you?

For me, ‘self-control’ has to do with my health… I have been ‘trying’ to loose weight since I gained it the summer after I graduated from High School…

annnnd after I gained the Freshman 60 NOT 30…..

But in reality I haven’t been trying hard enough…

I love food, but I LOVEEEEE sweets..

This is essentially why I cannot or have not lost any weight.. My self-esteem is quite high….until I try on a dress or jeans that used to fit correctly…. 😦 I know that for me to truly be satisfied with my weight and the way my clothes fit I have to be toned and in a healthy way.  I am now in a process where I am starting to think about how I live and I know that for me to be truly healthy I MUST make a lifestyle change, not just choose to go on a diet where I will loose 5-20 pounds but then gain it right backkk.

What about you? What does self-control me to you?
