It is now Mid-March and some of us might have lost a little bit of our “New Year New Me” mojo. Don’t worry it’s not too late to get it back. As if watching the models frolic around the beach in the Victoria’s Secret Swim Special airing at the end of the month isn’t motivation enough to tone up, Spring and Summer weather is just around the corner.

Here are some easy steps that you can add to your routine that will keep you looking and feeling your best all year long.

 Healthy Motivation 

It is extremely important to make sure that your goal is realistic. You shouldn’t cut out everything that you love from your diet. You should enjoy what you are putting into your body, and if you are ultimately feeling deprived you are just setting yourself up to fail.

  • Drink Water!
  • Portion Control is key.
  • Allow for 1 Cheat Day a week so that you won’t feel the need to gorge, and ruin all of your progress.
  • When you grocery shop try to stay on the outside of the store where most of the fresh food is located. When you start going down the isles, that’s where you’re going to find all of the unhealthy and highly processed foods.

 

You can do it!

 

DIY One-Minute No-Sew Baby Headband

I’m having a ton of fun dressing up little baby M, and we have just about every color headband possible… but sometimes, you just want more. (Yep, i’m a little greedy).

But ends up it’s actually super easy, no sewing machine required. And look how cute!

You can even make a matching one for yourself.

DIY No-Sew Headband:

1.  Get a pair of old newborn tights… or buy some cheap new ones. I got some little ones on sale for $1.99 at Macy’s.

2. Cut right below the waist band to get rid of the thick waistband area.

3. Tie the legs into a knot. It hides the excess fabric and this little knot will go at the base of the baby’s neck

4. Wrap around baby’s head and tie the feet of the tights into a bow on top of her head.

You can do the same thing with newborn leggings for the flatter bow look.
