I have been inspired recently to reinvent my wardrobe a little. With my job I wear both corporate and casual as we don’t have a dress code, jeans are a must for visiting construction sites.
Yesterday was a rainy Sunday, the perfect day to put on some tunes and conduct a military grade closet purge! I was feeling rapturous and decided to cut ties with "Three bags full" of clothes that have been hanging in my closet for years. Lets face it nobody has space to spare for clothes you don’t LOVE, I filled one whole bag for a girlfriend and another two bags for donations.
Feel free to join in the “Three Bags Full” closet purge, I feel much lighter looking into my closet at items I LOVE to wear.
The end result? Black, white and Sparkles! It begs the question do we end up dressing like our house? I supose it is my style.
Also thank you friends for your beautiful comments on Fridays post, I feel so blessed to have so many wonderful supportive people here.
Just over two months ago My Personal Trainer mentioned the advantages of cutting sugar out of my diet (rather crazy and controversial right?). I am not the type of person to do things by halves I usually jump in head first so the very next day I decided to make a conscious decision to give up both sugar and alcohol and transform my mind and mood and intern my body.
How did I do it?
Sugar: I cut out anything that contains sugar from Sweets, Fruit, Fruit juice, Soda.
Alcohol: I quit cold turkey
After three weeks I lost the craving for something sweet at 3pm.
Three weeks after quitting alcohol I totally lost the cravings for that glass of wine a few nights a week.
The hardest part was deciding to quit three weeks before Easter, Easter Sunday I had a big mood low and looking back I can now pinpoint this as my body’s “Ah Ha moment” I was rid of all the toxins. The mood low could also be attributed to the mountain of chocolate I lavished upon my husband in compensation as it is one of his favourite days of the year.
A totally clear mind free from cravings and a loss of 5kg and a dress size (who hoo).
Willpower is key! Friends and family members will unintentionally try and derail you.
Don't be a martyr about it, if it is a special occasion like a Birthday, Engagement or a Wedding I will have a glass of bubbly or a piece of cake.
