Rebag: Used to wear clothes, now you carry them!

If you've been following me on Facebook, then you probably already know my love of remixing and restyling old clothing items.  You CAN'T keep me out of a thrift store with a 50% off sale...I'm so there.  Saturdays afternoons and generally spent by my power shopping at all my local thrift shops.  Who's with me? :-)  (Don't be shy!)

Anyways, my love of recreating old things into new once again is totally feeding my love for this fun brand, Rebag.   I mean check out this adorable Rebag Bucket Bag:

What I love most about Rebag is that they believe "refashioning is not a compromise to current fashion but a transformation of it."  Isn't that awesome?!

So basically they take clothing and refashion it into adorable bags...LOVE it!!!  Now I want to pass the love on to you.  Check out Rebag and snag a GREAT deal at the same time using this sweet little  35% off discount code : REBAGNOW

You can also follow them on Twitter HERE or on Instagram HERE.

If you were to try out a Rebag, how would you style it?  I think I'd rock a floral bucket bag of theirs with an over sized gray tee, dark denim skinny jeans and fun, bold colored flats.  Maybe add on a dark blazer since it sure is getting chilly here in Texas!!

Share how you'd style your fav Rebag in the comments below.

My Fitness Progress with Beachbody, the 30 Day Reboot & MORE!!

Today I want to do a little recap of my journey over the last couple months and what I've learned along the way.  I hope this will encourage you to keep pushing forward towards your healthiest self.  The journey to health isn't always simple or easy, but with consistency, failures along the way and tenacity, you CAN  do it!!  ;-)

Let's rewind back to August of this year....

I felt fluffy, tired ALL the time, my bedtime had seriously become 6:30 or 7pm every night, because I was just that exhausted.  Plus, my allergies and asthma were at an all time high...constantly wheezing, sniffling and coughing up a storm. I broke down in tears on the phone with my mom, because I felt like I'd always be a burden and that my hubby would always have to take care of me, because I was constantly not feeling well.  

My hubby, the one who's always got a plan of action, encouraged me and said he was confident that we'd find a way for me to feel better.  Doctors could never find anything wrong besides a little vitamin D deficiency and me being borderline anemic. My amazing hubs helped me do some research & then we watched the movie "Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead" on Netflix and that was a HUGE lightbulb moment for me.  My hubby was right there saying go for it, I think this would really help you.

So the next day (a Saturday) we went to Bed, Bath & Beyond & got a Breville juicer.  Then Sunday morning I went to the grocery store for supplies and hit the ground running.

I was plannning to just do a 5 day Reboot (juice cleanse), but I loved the results so much after just a few days that I decided to commit to 30 whole days of juicing.  Basically 5 meals of juice & 1 coconut water per day.  The experiencing was seriously life changing!!!  

Checkout the fitness progress I made during that month:

(Today was Sept 30th, 2015)

Aside from just the difference in pictures, my allergies and asthma are barely noticeable more constant sniffling or wheezing.  I can walk up stairs and do my workouts without getting too winded.  Overall, I feel like my health has done a complete 360 in a positive direction.  

I lost about 20lbs, cleansed my body and fueled my body with only fresh fruits and veggies. My progress in September really encouraged me to make this a lifestyle change and not just a 30 day thing....

In October, I kept the progress going by transitioning from juicing with the Reboot into a vegan way of healthy eating:

Back in August, my eating habits consisted of shakes, protein bars, chicken breasts and then crap for dinner like ChicFila, Taco Bell and Sonic.  I was sipping on sweet tea waaaay to much and it was showing. 

Now my go to drinks are fresh made lemonade or water. One of my fav breakfast options is PB, Cinnamon & Banana Oatmeal.  For dinner, instead of constantly eating out, I like to make random stir fry recipes without oil and veggie wraps with hummus.  For a treat, I enjoy yummy chips and salsa, lots of fruit or homemade banana ice cream. 

Since September, I've been pretty darn consistent with my workouts too...I finished the end of Brazil Butt Lift, completed Hip Hop Abs and now I'm almost 2/3 done with P90X3.  

What's kept me so motivated?  The way I feel...I feel soooo much better. It's worth the time and effort to continue to feel this good.  Better than I've ever felt.  I was always the sickly one...if someone in the office got sick, I was down for the count.  Even back to my middle school days when I got sick so much I got a warning from the school that I had almost missed too many days one year. 

Thankfully all that's changed and who would've thought, this big ole life change would start with a desire and a movie on Netflix? haha

Where are you at in your journey?  What are your goals for the next few months?  There's still time to end 2015 strong!!! ;-)

Dallas Fitness Ambassadors: ATHLETA Swag Bags & MORE

At the ATHLETA Anniversary party they treated us to more than just a fun event....we got AHHHmazing swag bags and $50 gift cards to use in store.

The brand's a little pricey compared to my normal thrift shopping ways, but the $50 giftcard made for a super fun shopping experience.  I found this adorable pink sports bra for $49.  BOOM-->> Didn't even have to pay any extra.  

The bra fits like a glove and has enough padding to provide great coverage.  It also has some awesome sweat proof technology that keeps it from getting stinky in between washes...LOVE that!!

The back of the bra is what totally sold me on it....the cut out & criss cross

As for the swag bags, we got TONS of free samples, a few protein bars, lotion, and then the jackpot-->> About a million free weeks or workouts at different gyms and studios in the area.  I can't wait to try out a few and it's all FREE!  

Stay posted, because I'll be sure to share a little review of all the studios and gyms I check out. ;-)

Dallas Fitness Ambassadors: ATHLETA 1yr Anniversary Party at Stonebriar

I recently became a member of the Dallas Fitness Ambassadors and this event reminded me exactly why I absolutely love blogging and joining amazing networking groups like this one-->>  You get to meet like-minded ladies in your area who are creative, passionate and just great fun to be around.  You also get to try new things, get great swag and taste some yummy treats along the way.

Mai Lyn Ngo founded the DFA and you can learn all about her HERE....she's awesome!!
I aslo got to meet Jessica (in the tan) and Janna (in the sparkles) who I had a blast chatting and shopping with all evening.  Can't wait to meet up with them soon to try some yoga and Barre classes. 

(OOOOO and for being one of the 1st 10 ladies to show up to the event, we got $50 giftcards to use in the store-->> YAAAAS!!!)

So what all did we do at the event?  We got to checkout all the ATHLETA goodies....and let me just say, their pieces are above my normal workout-wear budgect, but the quality is ahhhmazing.  Thick fabrics made to not hold in scents so your workout clothes don't get all stinky and gross.  Love that feature!! ;-)

They had about a million cute yoga pant options....Jessica, Janna and I spent most of our time planning how we can make them appropriate for our corporate jobs. HAHA  Don't've thought about it too. 

We also got to sign up for some fun giveaways....

Spavia joined in on the fun with free chair massages....yes, please!

They also had wine for sipping while you shopped. 

Here we are signing up for all the give-away goodies and enjoying the yummy vegan snacks.  

They had tons of awesome companies at the event.....

Plus an awesome chef with fresh juices and yummy treats to try out. 

Y'all know I LOVE me some fresh made juice!! MMMM!!

My fav treat they had were the vegan brownies and vegan cake pops.  Those brownies were HUGE!!!

And I could seriously snag up all these adorable sneaker...I really liked the coral ones in the back. 

We finished off the evening with a fun group pic.  Remember to check out the Dallas Fitness Ambassador's website and be sure to join in on the fun next time!! ;-)

PS:  Stay tuned for my next post where I'll be sharing all about the swag bags PLUS a peek at what I snagged with my gift card.
