Mom Style: This weeks looks for being on the go

As a Mom, my style has definitely been changing. I have to be able to get ready quickly and I am always looking for pieces that are comfy and still look presentable. Being a stay at home Mom, I am not really going to places that require me to be dressed up anymore. I aim to still look pulled together, even though I am probably just heading to the grocery store or for a long walk. While I was pregnant, leggings became my most favorite wardrobe piece and they still are now that I am a Mom. I was at Aeric/American Eagle recently and found that they have really awesome high quality leggings. Since I wear a ton of leggings, I picked up a half a dozen pairs. Why not have them in ever color? I have been snapping pictures of my looks for my Instagram account daily. I figured why not put them together for a weekly post on: Mom Style. Here is a look at what I was wearing this week:

Clean Eating Can Still Taste Good

Hey guys! As you know, we have been doing the 60 Day PIYO Challenge. Part of that is a clean eating style food plan. Now that we are in week 6, we have really nailed this clean eating thing. We actually have started to enjoy it and have figured out how to make meals that we still enjoy. Ok, going salt free has been really hard and we will be adding salt back in once the 60 days are up. Other than that, we have decided to really try to keep up with the way our daily diet looks right now. For example this is what I ate today:

Breakfast:

  • Coffee
  • Oatmeal
  • Raspberries

Snack:

  • Banana
  • Almonds

Lunch:

  • 3 oz of Bison
  • Celery Root Mash

Snack:

  • Apple
  • Tsp Cashew Butter
  • Non Fat Latte

Dinner:

  • Asparagus
  • Corn
  • Salmon Filet

The best part is that I am not starving like I thought I would be. I actually feel more satisfied than I used to. I have always been a calorie counter and as long as I stayed under my calories I was happy. With that I would ultimately eat less food so that I could indulge in some higher calorie items. If I can get my husband on board with this food plan, I am sure you could too. Here are images of some of the yummy things that I have enjoyed on this plan on the last week:

Fitness Quote of the Week

Fitness QuotesHappy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend. Since becoming a Mom, there has definitely been more stressful moments than I am used to. I have found that when I am really stressed I was grabbing something to eat. Before having a baby exercise was my stress reliever. Exercise really is the best way to combat stress!

Eating Clean, Loving the Beginning of Fall and PIYO Update

PIYO Challenge

 

Hey Guys! I hope you have all been having a great week. I have been meaning to hop on here and write an update on how the 60 day PIYO Challenge is going and just things in general. We have really been embracing the eat clean diet and even Jon has admitted that it is not that bad. After the 60 days is over, we have decided to incorporate some of the things that we have changed in the last 5 weeks. Previously, Jon liked to use a lot of butter for cooking and we have learned to get by without it and have not really missed it at all. What we have been missing is the salt that we normally use to season the food.

Saturdays have become our cheat day and I really look forward to Saturdays now more than ever. My other favorite part of the weekends is the trip that we take to Whole Foods to get our food for the week. We have been filling our fridge with so much beautiful produce and I love it. Besides produce, we have really gotten into trying different things. This week we bought cashew butter and it is really good but be careful it is not low-calorie. It actually states that on the jar in 2 different spots. I guess they know it is so addicting that you may just want to eat the whole thing!

PIYO Challenge

Fall has now started. I have always been a huge fan of Pumpkin Spice Lattes. There has been a blog post going around sharing how bad the Starbucks version can be for you. It was definitely eye-opening but will not stop me from enjoying one occasionally. If you are going to order a PSL, I suggest asking for only 2 pumps of the syrup. It is actually way better that way and cuts the calories and sugar down. After you have it this way once, I guarantee that the original will always be too sweet after that!

We are now in Week 5 of the 60 day Piyo Challenge and I am down around 7 pounds and feel really good. My jeans are finally starting to fit a lot better and I am starting to see some changes in my body. Being post partum from a c section, I am still struggling with the ab area of my body but hopefully we will get to a place where I will feel confident in my body again! I know I have heard from a few of you that are doing the challenge along with me. If you are doing it or are interested in checking it out, please reach out to me here or shoot me an email at nycfitfoodfashion@gmail.com

Have a great rest of the week!


#ClooneyWedding Weekend Wraps Up With Their Civil Ceremony

Well George and Amal were legally married this morning in Venice. This wraps up a busy weekend for the couple, who both looked amazing all weekend long. I am still dying to see the wedding dress but I have a feeling it may take a while, if ever. This morning the couple headed out to their civil ceremony. Amal looked stunning in a white Stella McCartney suit. I am still style crushing on Mrs. Clooney. I am sure she had a stylist and they did an amazing job this weekend. Her wedding style was to die for!
