A new job? New clothes!! Lovin the new body :)

So, how is the exercise and diet going since Rev Abs finished? Great! I have only gained one pound since the day the program ended, and have been to the gym 5/6 days a week. I just can't get enough of trying new classes and working out, and love eating 5 times a day. I have added carbs back, but in small doses and am sticking to brown rice and whole wheat or spinach pasta. I have not yet had pizza, a bagel or even garlic bread, but I did break down and have my Pinkberry once, and even had some Friendly's ice cream a week or so ago (I cannot resist peppermint ice cream).

As for my new body and new clothes..woohooo I have been shopping twice and have a nice new size 4 and 6 wardrobe. My old clothes have been traded, and sent to my mom...though I still have to go through my spring/summer clothes,and put some on ebay.

Yesterday, I spent the day at Saks, and loved trying on all the cute clothes. The NYC Saks is a bit overwhelming when you have a list of basics, and a whole afternoon to look for them. I knew I needed a new jean skirt, a black dress, and some tops, so I started there.

I went straight to the DVF and Marc Jacobs collections and found some cute things. If I can't find them online, I will take photos when I wear them :). Here is what I bought:


First I tried this on and loved it! Simple, cute, a little sexy and bold- and black and white goes with everything!

Then I tried on a classic black wrap dress, and had to decide between the long sleeves or 3/4, I went with the 3/4. I bought it in a sz 4.  Also, I found a cute black skirt for the spring Also a 4!!! It looks sooooo adorable on, and i love the belt too! I will get so much wear out of it.

I also bought two beautiful marc jacobs tank tops. Tiny. Pretty. Not black. One is a fab lite green color with polka dots!  Also, I found a cute jean skirt, but I cannot find it online yet. I also picked up a cute black Theory sweater that was on clearance. Stylish with a little tie at the neck. Oh, and some fab hanky panky's in nice colors.  Tomorrow I will post my Woodbury Commons finds :)

New Year's Resolutions!! is time to do what I have been procrastinating. Not my favorite activity of the year, but vital this time. And that is .... Write down my New Year's Resolutions.

For the first time in many years , my first and foremost resolution is NOT to lose weight, though I do want to lose my last 8 lbs before late June.

Resolutions (in order that they need to get done)

1. Get a job. (besides my acting gigs, something that brings in a regular income that I can rely on)

2. Get new headshots.

3. Get a new agent. One for voiceovers, and one for tv and film. Or a manager for both.

4. Send voiceover cds to all the publishing companies in NYC area.

5. Paint the inside of the house, and spruce it up.

This is a good start.

So I have been an active member of Equinox for a couple of weeks now and I absolutely love it. As of next week, I will have a regular workout schedule and will share the classes that I take, this week I have tried a lot of them to see what works with my schedule right now. As for the diet, I have pretty much stuck to the 5 small meals , with low carbs and protein based meals. I added back fruit and yogurt...and had sushi a couple of times since the 5 sq meals ended.

Tonight I made the no pudge fat free chocolate brownies, and they are soooo amazing. I made them in muffin tins , so they are small and mushy in the middle , just how i like them. YUM!!!

How are things going for you this lovely 2009??? Any resolutions you would like to share?? let me know...stay healthy and have a fab weekend.
