Oh how I can’t wait to fit into my clothes again!!!! It seems like it’s been forever since I have worn my favorite pair of Lucky Brand jeans or my cute Anne Klein size 7 black and white wedges or even my most comfortable Victoria Secret bras.
What we women sacrifice for our families- growing them is a blessing but a long, 10 month grueling process! Ha!
My name is Tina and I am the newest addition to the Style Spies team in San Diego, California. It’s basically summer here all year long and it is also the fittest place I have ever lived- activity all year long since it is mostly always nice outdoors. I am due with my next child on August 11th and I am writing this blog as a sort of public declaration of what my action plan is for after the baby and how I am going to get my body back so that I can feel good in those clothes that are packed loosely away in my closet (and the ones I am going to go out and buy as a little treat to myself). See, I am also a Personal Trainer so I know exactly what to do.
Once I am cleared for exercise by the doctors, here is my plan for weight loss and hopefully what it will yield as far as some of those stand out fashion pieces of the season from my favorite stores. Here is my 15 minute workout plan (for those days when I know I can’t get anything longer in).

A wise, wise friend of mine once shared with me that with activity, everything I do that is greater than zero minutes in a day, puts me ahead of the game at the end of the week.
To liken that to style, something, even if it’s just some accessorizing with a pair of…….
or a simple belt, scarf or statement purse,is better than nothing- it’s all contributing to you looking that much more fabulous.
Here’s to my healthy, happy baby and a stylish future!
