Happy Sunday everyone. Today I am joining Mary Ann, and Annie for our Sunday Fab Five. I am trying to take off a few pounds and trying to get fit in the new year. Let’s talk about that and more.
HOW MUCH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY DO OLDER ADULTS NEED?
Yikes I guess that is us. So how much excercise do we really need a great article here by the Centers of Disease Control
I forget how much good information you can find on the AARP website. Denise Austin is their fitness expert. You can find a wealth of information on simple ways to get fit here from Denise.
OUTFIT OF THE WEEK
On Wednesday I will be joining Jennifer from A Well Styled Life and Rhoda from Southern Hospitality for a post on Activewear. Let’s face it that’s what most of us are living in right now. I spotted this Varley Sweatshirt (a tad pricey) on Anthropologie after the fact. I love the side zips and I find if I buy decent sweatshirts they last. I paired it with the Zella leggings which come in extended sizes, the super reasonable old navy waterproof jacket (looks just like the one from Banana that is three times the price) comes in multiple colors. I like the crossbody bag from Nike. I don’t know how many times I head out for a walk and wish I had my wallet. Target has the latest and greatest air buds for $189. I know still pricey but if you like to listen to podcasts while walking so worth it. I added the Rothy Camo sneaks and my favorite Vera Wang Sunglasses. A great walking outfit for heading into Spring.
A GREAT WEIGHT WATCHERS SOUP
I am back on Weight Watchers. If you have followed me long you know it is my standby for taking off extra pounds. I definitely put on a few covid pounds. This soup is one of my go-tos. It is super simple and you can add or subtract using ingredients you already have in your pantry. I add a pinch of red pepper flakes, a tablespoon of whatever fresh herbs I have on hand, and the juice and zest of 1/2 lemon.
Beth Djalali (Style at a Certain Age) Bathroom Remodel
I know many of you follow Beth from Style at a Certain Age. She recently redid her master bath and I just had to share it with you. Beth’s remodel proves that a bathroom can be big on style even if it isn’t large. She has some clever storage ideas that I think you will enjoy. Pop over and visit her blog here for the before’s and afters. If you aren’t following Beth on Instagram you might want to do so here.
TWO WILD AND CRAZY WOMEN on INSTAGRAM SANDY & CINDY
Sandra (who is actually quite an expert) and I did ( a crazy live (my first) regarding hooded eyes). I definitely need to hone my live skills but we had fun. She said” just be natural and don’t take it too seriously.” I learned a lot from the master. You can check out the amateur operation here on Sandra’s feed (can you believe she had the guts to post it here?) If you aren’t following Sandra on Instagram you are missing a lot of fun! You can also follow her on YouTube here. Let’s help her build her follower count!
YOU CAN SHOP FOR MY GLASSES HERE. THEY ARE DIRT CHEAP! The mascara came in my allure beauty box. I decided to try this so I could report back to you on new products. I am not making any money on this. I just thought it would be fun. The first items that came were really good including the mascara.
PRODUCTS USED ON LIVE
Well that’s it from me this week. What are you up to this weekend? We are off to Paso to visit our new home. Thanks for joining me for Trying to Get Fit in the New Year. Now pop over and visit Annie and Mary Ann for their Sunday favorites. FYI Thank you for all the wonderful comments about our soon to be new home. If I missed a comment please forgive me. My mailbox was overwhelmed. I appreciate each and every comment so much.
