Workin' on my Fitness

Pre ankle break, I was a very busy individual.  I never went to the gym but I hustled at the salon 40 hours a week and I was often out running around the city on my days off.  I rarely had “a lazy day”. I detested going to the gym unless it was to swim. I just lead an active life and that was great. I was fit enough to win the title “Miss Fitness” at the Miss Fuller Woman Pageant. Post ankle break, I settled into a life of complete sedentary.  I sat for my job for 40 hours a week and then sat to chill out after work.  My hard won strength and endurance slowly slipped away.

Kick up your Heels

For your viewing pleasure I present something a little different: a pinup inspired look!  Are you surprised?  I know, I know... it's so out of my comfort zone. (Can we talk for just a quick tic about how long my hair is?!?!) All joking aside, this is one of my absolute favourite outfits.  I've travelled with this skirt so many times.  It's so easy to dress up with heels and sparkly jewelry or dress it down with cute flats and a tank top.  I would love to get my hands on the forest green one too if any of you see it out there on sale. When I stepped outside to shoot this outfit there was a massive, bubblegum-pink Hummer...
