Today @ Kelly's Korner is Show Us Your Life: Fashion Tips. I love clothes and shoes! And accessories! I usually try to stay away from trends and buy pieces that are going to last through more than one year. Each season I do buy a couple of pieces that are considered in. Today I'm going to share with you some of my favorite must-haves.
3: Khaki pants are a staple for me. The school I teach at does not allow us to wear jeans even on Fridays so I substitute khaki's for a casual feel.
5: I love earrings. Big ones, hoops, gold, silver... it doesn't matter. I have never been a huge fan of necklaces or bracelets so earrings are a great way for me to accessorize.

As I'm sure you are aware Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. I know that you always have such a hard time coming up with gift ideas for me so I decided to help you out a little. After perusing the Old Navy website I have found several things that would be a valuable addition to my closet (and yes, I know that it is overflowing into your side but honestly you don't even like clothes. Do you really need an entire side?).
I need a new short sleeve polo shirt and this watermelon color is really cute.

SmartOnes also makes dessert products too. The chocolate chip cookie dough sundae is surprisingly delicious when you stick it in the microwave for a few seconds. It tastes just like cookie dough with chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream.

I purchased this heart wreath from AC Moore a few years ago. It still looks at good as the day I bought it and the best thing is that I only paid $3.99 for it.
I don't have as many Valentine's Day decorations since it seems to come and go pretty quickly.

Isn't that sweet? Hubs works in security equipment distribution so he gets all excited about this stuff. We had a new panel installed on Saturday so when he set it up he had it display " I Love You Kelly".

Jake is such a cutie. In fact, he is almost too perfect. I love his smile and his eyes but I usually go for darker hair.
The girls this season are out there. I am so glad that Michelle is gone. I couldn't even bring myself to post that crazy girls picture. I love when one of the other girls said that she needed a therapist; not a husband.
Another one of my not so favorites is Vienna. I don't remember her causing so much drama on previous episodes but for some reason the other girls do not like her. I don't think she's very pretty. Something about her hair maybe.
My 2 favorites for this season are Ali and Tenley.

Weight Loss Update
I didn't lose any weight this week but I didn't gain anything either so that was good. Yesterday was the beginning of week 3 in our 5K training program. I am signing up for my first 5K ever at the end of this month. I know that I won't be able to run all of it or probably even half of it but I am excited about getting started.

I think that it is a wonderful way to eat the right foods and not feel like you are depriving yourself.
I am a teacher so I take my lunch everyday. I really like some of the SmartOnes and Lean Cuisines. These frozen meals have a lot of sodium in them so I try not to eat more that 2 or 3 a week. I also eat a lot of sandwich's or take leftovers from the night before. My favorite fast food place to eat on Weight Watchers is Wendy's. I love to go and get a small chili and/or chicken nuggets when I need something quick.
I love to be active. Sports have always been part of my life and now that I have gotten a little older I still enjoy them. I have started something new for 2010. I have always wanted to run a 5K so a group of us have started a 13 week program that will help train us for this. And since I got an I-Touch for Christmas I downloaded Run Mate which is an app that keeps track with all my running sessions.
I thought I would share some of the things that have helped me lose weight:
1) I drink a ton of water. All day long.
2) Exercise with someone else. It keeps me motivated and I feel like I can't be the one to quit.
3) Keep low calorie snacks handy in case you get hungry.
4) Set mini-goals and always reward yourself.
5) Tell others about your goals. This will hold you accountable.
