Life Update

Anyone else fee like January was the longest month ever?  For as fast as October to January went I expected to blink and miss my birthday month but nope!  I realized that as long as the month seemed I was incredibly overwhelmed with life and didn’t do a great job of sharing new content with all of you which is why today’s post is all about what has been going on and sharing deets of what I have been wearing on my Instagram.

First things first, I wanted to give you all a health & fitness update.  As you may remember I shared a few of my goals for the new year and one of the big ones for me was to get back into a sustainable routine with working out and eating better.  I was honestly embarrassed to share how much weight I had gained in the last 4 years but it was significant.  I am proud to share that I have been sticking to a low carb, no sugar, no wine diet 6 days a week and indulging only 1 day a week (like yesterday, ouch).  I did a great job of working out 4 days a week the first 2 weeks of the year but then got sick for 2 full weeks around my birthday which really throw my routine.  I got back on the wagon last week and snuck 4 workouts in!  I don’t really do the whole getting on a scale thing but have been taking progress photos.

There’s a new hotel in town and to say I am a fan is a huge understatement.  The Rowan by Kimpton opened it’s doors just before Thanksgiving and last month we officially celebrated their grand opening with a fashion show, delicious food from Chef Stephen Wambach, and house made cocktails like the Highway 111 (a date infused old fashion).
