American Flag & Camo


Scarf, Vest, Tank Top:  Ralph Lauren {here}
Jeans:  Ralph Lauren {Mom’s closet}
Booties:  Enzo Angelino {Macy’s}
With Labor Day around the corner I thought this scarf was absolutely fitting.  I love prints to begin with but the fact that they mixed these two prints was pure genius.  
With the above being said I wanted to talk a little bit
about how I keep my diet going during holidays or BBQ’s.  First and foremost of course I allow myself
to have cheat days because well sometimes you really need to eat something that
is so unhealthy for you just to be reminded why you started your healthy
lifestyle to begin with.  Here are a few
  • Don’t cheat during the week. 
    If you cheat during the week then you really can’t cheat during the
    holiday.  I mean I know that Labor Day
    falls on a Monday, but let’s be honest you’ll probably overload on your cheat
    day.  You’ll probably want that extra
    handful of chips, or you’ll definitely want to eat a burger AND a hotdog.  Well, at least I know I will be.
  • Don’t overdo it.  If
    you are going to eat a hot dog and a hamburger, don’t go back for seconds for
    ice cream.  Or instead of eating the
    chips and dip, just eat the chips.  Ok,
    well if you really want dip then at least pick up that carrot or piece of
    celery instead.
  • Drink lots of water.  I
    know I’m starting to sound like a broken record, but you will be consuming a
    lot of sodium meaning you’re body will bloat. 
    Water seems to help me with this. 
    That next day bloat is awful so this is something that helps me!
  • If the BBQ involves playing a sport, or swimming, take
    advantage of this extra moving around! 
    Who cares if you get all sweaty and gross, you won’t be the only one.  Or why don’t you suggest playing something?
