J. Hilburn

Well...I have entered a new business venture and I couldn't be more excited! Here is how we began...

This is my man...

He is a big buff guy who looks great in a suit and LOVES being in a suit. Unfortunately, t-shirts are the only thing that really fits him.

I set out to find him clothes that were as nice as Neimans but more a Banana Republic price...

I discovered J. Hilburn. A Company that does completely affordable clothes with high quality fabrics imported and crafted in Italy and have comparable patterns to the Sax, Nordstrom, and Neimans. Jeff loves his clothes and now is fitted so that any time he wants something we can call our representative and order a shirt. They will come custom to Jeff and embriodered with his initials.

Look at all the patterns!!

As I got to know people from their team I knew this was something I had to be a part of!! So here I am and loving it. Look for pictures of Jeff in his new threads soon!

Contact me if you would be interested in getting your groom in J. Hilburn!

7 pounds in 7 days...or 2pounds in 4 days?

Wow...I am not the best at intense dieting for experiment sake...much easier to make excuses. I lost some weight and definitely made healthier decisions, but in all the great restaurants we have in Dallas very few have healthy clean I warn you, if you attempt it, you should probably decide to just eat at home for the week!

So here is one thing I started eating this week that was perfect when I got a sweet craving...

Luna Minis...80 calories and filling. I keep them everywhere and they contain nutrients women need. $9.99 for a box of 18 at Target!!

Flavored water packets:

These helped soo much when I was craving something besides water. Each one is 5 calories and so delicious!

Happy Saturday!

Panic Diet for Brides-7 days and 7 pounds

So its a week before the big day and your dress is a little tight. You meant to get serious and hit the gym harder but you got busy! Planning your wedding can be difficult with a job and or while in school! I have a great diet that I am trying right now to see if its effective.

Reasons I love it:
-You still get to eat
-It develops healthy habits
-Its very clean
-It produces fast results

Reasons its so hard:
-You basically have to eat at home
-It kicks out almost all carbs
-You are cutting calories and keeping a good work out in your schedule
-It isn't caffeine lover friendly

7 days of this:

Breakfast (pre-workout): Protein shake
Breakfast (post work out): Scrambled eggs (5 egg whites & 1 whole egg) with one grapefruit
Lunch: 1 chicken breast and a small side salad with lemon juice
Snack: 1/3 cup berries, 1/2 low fat cottage cheese and 5 almonds
Dinner: 6oz ham or lean meat with 1 cup steamed broccoli
Snack: 1/3 cup plain yogurt with one scoop protein powder

Drink: one cup of coffee a day, green tea and lots of WATER

Ok So I work and I don't do grapefruit or cottage here is what mine looks like:

Breakfast: Protein shake
Snack: Greek yogurt, strawberries
Lunch: 1 chicken breast and a small side salad with lemon juice
Snack: 1/2 luna bar and berries
Dinner: 6oz ham or lean meat with 1 cup steamed broccoli or green beans
Snack: 1/3 cup plain yogurt with one scoop protein powder

It can be challenging (especially with work lunches and dinner with friends) but anyone can do anything for ONE WEEK and its set to loose weight quickly!!! I am on day 2, a little tired (because normally I drink 2-3 cups of coffee a day) and my stomach is growling still adjusting. Ill let you know how it goes!!

Stay tuned...
