I don’t want a roll there/aka gotta lose the weight!

Ah, the joys of getting older, the mind gets faster, the metabolism gets slower

I know I’ve been getting big. I KNOW. You can’t work on television and see yourself every. dang. day. without seeing how you look. That doesn’t mean you can’t ignore it and allow yourself to be lazy, indulgent, and put your head in the sand.

Until, of course, you take a shower at your friend’s after a hike and step on their scale. Yeow. Almost 160 pounds? Say WHAT? I freaked when I hit 150 after surgery a couple of years ago. This almost had me crying.

You know what though? Screw crying. It wasn’t going to help me lose weight.

I hope you join me while I try to trim the rolls!

Let me know if you’re on a get fit journey, or if you’ve tried flexible dieting.

Much Love,

Gloria

Vlog: Scrumptious Sundays – Sopa de Fideo

Mexican pasta soup. That’s right. We use pasta!

There is nothing more homestyle cooking, more mama than a hot, lovely sopa de fideo. I’ve been eating this since I was old enough to eat solid food, and its a starter, a comfort food, and a staple in the Mexican home.

My cousin Paula asked if I knew how to make my mother’s sopa de fideo. Yes! And now, you do, too!

Please try this out and let me know how it went!

Much Love,

Gloria

ThredUp Consignment Clothing Buys

I love buying consignment: fancy for cheap!

 

Yeah, so my male colleagues can rotate 3-4 suits, but if you wear a dress or something a lot, someone notices! Ha! So, yes, we have way too many clothes in our closets.

I love consignment. Great clothes, cheap price!
