40’s  + Exercise + Fabulous Outfits. A strange title right? One thing is for sure, the older you get the more stuff changes. I think 40 is actually the new 20 but body changes are kind of a pain as I can’t eat whatever I want like i use too. 

Living with my grandparents and my parents (coming up on 10 years now) has been amazing in the sense that I see the cycle of changes through their age.  My mom told me that she was always a skinny mini until she hit her 40’s and I remember her telling me that she too, experienced body changes.

The bottom line, I can’t eat whatever I want anymore and I have to exercise.

I am going to share some of my favorite outfits throughout the post and I have provided affiliate links (remember that post from earlier this week about affiliate links?) in case you want to shop.

The LOFT is having a 40% off EVERYTHING Sale  (FRIENDS code) so these outfits are all on sale!

The trick for me is exercise and watching what I eat. I was amazed yesterday when I had to log my food in the app, what some of the calories added up too. I also went for a 2 mile fast walk and half run. I decided to speed walk some and then run when I felt like I could.

  1. Wow, you look very good girl. My hats off to you for being able to stick to your diet. Keep up the good work. Yes, it’s very, very, very hard to take off the FAT that was so easy to put on.
