Getting ‘me’ back!

Many of you know or may not know, but for the last (almost) year I have completely submerged myself into getting back in shape and eating healthy. After having Eleanor and going through IVF , I gained a lot of weight. Completely worth it, but not what my (usually) smaller frame was used to.  All of the meds associated with IVF really had my body feeling blah. So, last April, I made the decision to do something about it.

I started a local program here in Santa Barbara, called Jenny Schatzle Program. The first month was brutal. I had never worked out previously, I was lucky in that way.  Or, maybe not. Ha! A girlfriend of mine completely convinced me that I would soon get “addicted” to it, I laughed! If you know me though, you know that I always follow through and I’m pretty strong-willed, so I was determined to fall in love with this beast.

The classes are all HIIT, which is high intensity with a mix of cardio and weights. My first class I literally thought I was going to puke. Even one of the trainers told me I looked a little white.  But, I still came back again and again and long story short, I was becoming “addicted”.

I was also ready to gain “me” back again. I had put so much into trying to get pregnant, then being pregnant, having Eleanor and starting a business, that I forgot about taking care of myself, mentally, physically and spiritually.

I think mothers just naturally fall into this pattern.  I remember saying, even when I was pregnant, that no matter what, I wouldn’t forget to take care of myself. Then, the baby comes and it’s all different. Even after seeing Eleanor thriving in my belly, I was falling into the common pattern.  Completely fine, but I believe it’s important we don’t go years doing this, otherwise we do completely loose ourselves and it’s so hard to get back, if we ever do.

Approaching 40, I have to admit, I feel the best I have felt in years. My body looks good (yes, I’m tooting my own horn), my skin is coming back (from the weird acne you get from pregnancy and after), and I feel strong all around, physically, spiritually and mentally. All three very important for a healthy lifestyle, in my opinion.

Last week I shared some of my favorite workout shoes, today I wanted to share some of my FAVORITE workout pants. Ladies, they make your booty and body look good, no matter your size.  Trust me!  Here are my top picks that I own…

Keeping it simple

Hey!

Sorry it’s been a little quiet over here, just trying to stay up on life. (wink wink)

We have been adding so many arrivals to the shop, and loving every single one of them. I’ve noticed as I’ve gotten older, that I tend to pick out the more simple pieces for my wardrobe. I also seem to gravitate towards black and white.  Anyone else feel this way?

Below is one of my favorite pieces that we just received. It’s our Park Slope sweater, lightweight, and so comfy.

Herbal Remedies+Fashion

I wanted to introduce to you our newest addition to Love Threads, our apothecary section. I strongly believe in everything fashionable, and that even includes how we take care of ourselves.  I’ve used all of our products that we are carrying, for a long while before adding them to our shop.  So I stand strongly behind them.

Our health is what will keep us going for a long, long time. There is nothing more beautiful than a healthy, glowing, strong woman. Instead of taking multiple supplements everyday, all you have to do is have a cup of one of our Moon Juice dusts, a spritz of our gypsy rose mist, and tend to your dosha, with a spritz of one of our Ayurveda mists.

Having a clean, fashionable lifestyle, has given me more gratitude for life. I have a clearer head, more energy (hello, to anyone with kiddos or works obscene hours), and my overall body, just feels good!

Below, I have shared some our newest products.  If you get a chance, pop over to our site to see, and read more in depth about them.

Peace~~~

Kimono love

Love Threads received a new shipment of kimonos this past week. We have to admit, this group could possibly be our favorite ones yet! The kimono is such an easy add, to make any outfit look that much better. Throw one on with cut-offs, white skinnies, denim skinnies, etc…the possibilities are endless.

Treat yourself to a little, mid summer essential, and I’m pretty sure you won’t have any regrets.

holiday attire

I love this series that Sadie Sabin started over on her blog, simplysadiejane, called Holiday Party Dresses.  This one happens to be my favorite one so far (i’m not biased or anything), in which she is wearing our moto vegan jacket. The skirt is pretty amazing too.  It’s from Shabby Apple, you can find it here. If you get a chance pop over to Sadie’s blog and get inspired!
