Forever Ripped

forever ripped 7
Top: c/o | Shorts: forever21 | Shoes: Target | Purse: Forever21 | Sunglasses: Target

These have to be my most favorite pair of shorts. They are so comfortable and edgy, I just can't handle giving them away. Yes, they are ripped to the extreme but I think it gives them character and most importantly tell a story, a story one can only dream about... Kinda like, "The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants"... But different because this story is mine and my travels and adventures. This isn't the first time you have seen them, you actually have seen them multiple time and every time they appeared, a new chapter was written.
PS: Do you have a clothing item that tells a store?

Weekly Weigh In #2: Baby Steps


Hey Fitness Pals!

This week for me has had so many changes for my mental health and emotions and the way I react to situation all from one simple change... The time i wake up. If you follow me on Twitter you would have seen/read me talking bout my new schedule of waking up at 3:50 am Monday-Friday. It's really not a decision I made because let's be completely honest I work from home, so there is really no need to be up that early! But my boyfriend started a new job that he has to be at by 5 am, so me getting up early is more of a supportive thing and  it really helps me in a way by getting things done on time.

I mentioned all of this because it relates to my sleeping/eating habits. I'm the type of person that can't just bounce up in the morning and have breakfast. I have never been a morning eater because it really makes my stomach hurts and I'm just not about that life. So I wait like 2-3 hours to eat. But when it does come time to eat, I'm not really hungry due to the fact of me being tired. So to make a confusing/long thing short I have been eating way less and not eating after 4pm.  This is way to new for me, but I'm getting use to it... Baby steps, baby steps! 
 It's also helping me have more Mind over matter, meaning I'm really thinking about what I'm doing and not having my tummy control my mind... I'm the boss!

To get into the weigh in last week I weighed 263 lbs and today I weigh in at 261.2 lbs ... So I lost 1.8 lbs. Last week I also told you all that it would be nice to get to 260 or less because I really want to be out of the 60's. I was really close to making it, I think. So by the time next weigh in come around aka next week, I should accomplish it.

Anyways, I will see you next Weigh In.

PS: I would like to know how is your weight loss or healthy new habits going?

Taylor Bluetooth Body Fat Scale and App Review

I got this product for free in exchange for a review, but like always all opinions are 100 % my own.

Taylor Bluetooth Body Fat Smart Scale and App 2
Hey Friends!
Fitness and Health has become something big here on FashionShyChild. I share my goals, story's and even products that work and help me out. 
With In this month I have even started sharing my weight loss with a weekly weigh in. I told you all I received a scale on Twitter and Snapchat but if you don't follow me on those, you have know clue what scale I am using for weigh ins. 
That is where this post comes into play. I was given the opportunity to test out a Bluetooth Smart Scale by Taylor. A scale like this is something I really wanted and I'm real excited to share my thought and oppinions with you all today.
So in this review I will be covering these topics: Packaging, Product Review with Pros & Cons, and My Final Thoughts... So lets get started!

Packaging: Everything about this Taylor Body Fat Smart Scale packing is eye catching. You get all the information about the product you could possibly need just on its box. 

Product Review: This Taylor Bluetooth body Fat Smart Scale is not your average body fat scale, its way more! Meaning it docent just have one function, it has multiple functional bennifits including Weight, Body Fat, Body Water, Muscle Mass and maximum Daily calories. But don't feel too overwhelmed because it's super easy to use. All I had to do... once it was set up of course, is stand on it and that's it! The scale collects all of the information it needs via Bluetooth where my info is shipped to its free app on my phone.
By now your probably wondering about the Bluetooth function. Well it's wayyy easy to set up and you will be connected in know time. You do need a newer phone to use the Bluetooth 4.0 technology, but don't worry even if you can't or don't want to use the Bluetooth function on this scale you can still use it with know problem. 
To put the icing on the cake the scale does go up to 400lb and even comes with its own batteries. The batteries are not in the scale when you first take it out, but they are located on the side, inside the box. So don't rush to much taking it out when you first get it.
There is a function on the scale that I find to be completely pointless and evacuate and that would be the Maximum Daily Calories. It ALWAYS tells me to eat over 2,000 calories... 2,405 to be exact. I never used and app or device that told me to consume that much... So I tried it out to see what would happen, I had too and it was a complete fail to my weight loss goal.
Let's now talk about the app. This Taylor Body Fat Smart Scale has it own app, letting you connect your scale to the phone via Bluetooth. It works with Google Play and Apple making it super cool but also just plain simple. I love how I can turn my phones Bluetooth feature on and my info transfers to the app. But the app is kind of a waste of space on my phone because of its simplicity. If it had the ability to be a fitness/food diary too, it would be golden! The box says its compatible with popular food/fitness diaries, but the only one I see is MyFitnessPal, why not the Lose It! App? 

Pros- tracks a lot, Bluetooth compatible, comes with batteries, easy to set up, can be used as a basic weight scale
Cons- Doesn't work with the app I love, It's app is a waste of space

My Final Thoughts: I love this scale and it's a huge upgrade from the glass scale I used to own. I love the fact that you can use it Bluetooth feature is you want but if it's not your thing your not pressured. But the bottom line is body fat scales are pricey to begin with so why not spend something on a product that gives you what you wanted and more... Its worth it !

Fall is coming up next month and I just can't freakin wait. It has to be by far one of my favorite seasons now that I am an adult and not in school. 
Its something about the laid back feel and moody colors/tones. It's probably the high introvert in me but who wouldn't love it! I use to be that kid that would wear literally every color of the rainbow but my style has evolved and im kinda over that. Now I feel pops of color is best for me... Would you agree!?

Weekly Weigh In #1: Emotional Eating

Hey friends!

If you are on this weight loss journey with me, welcome to the first weigh in. If you did stop by last week and was wondering where my weekly weigh in was, I didn't put one up. I was having one of those weeks where I was just emotionally unhappy. It had nothing to do with what some one said or anything. It was all put on by myself, emotionally feeling like a failure. This caused me to not care or pay attention to what I put into my mouth, leading me to gain a little. 

In the introduction to this series I said I was 264.2 at the time and last week when I weighed myself I jumped to 265.2   So I gained a pound!

But I don't feel discouraged, because this week I'm back on track weighing in at 263. Yayyyy!

So for next week I really want to get to 260, I think it can be done and I'm going to work really hard to make it possible. 
Make sure you follow me on Twitter to get all of my fitness info first. 

See you next weigh in!

Targets Mossimo Lunea Shoes

Targets Mossimo Lunea Shoes 4.5
I new one day a post on these Target Mossimo shoes would go up, I just never decided when. But there is a time and a place for everything and I guess the time  for these specific shoes is now.

This is not the first time you have seen me in this style/brand of shoes. I have own so many pairs, its freakin crazy and the funny part is, all of the pairs I have own have been the same color... Black! This is actually my first time deciding to get a different color and I think I made a great decision. 
These are the grey pairs and they are called the Mossimo Supply Co Lunea in Grey and they are in a size 11... Yes I have a big foot! 

If you have never bought a pair and actually tried them out, your really missing out. They are super comfortable and very chill to walk and stand in for hours and can we say Affordable! 
When I was working my 8 hour job 5 days a week, these are the shoes I would wear... The black pair of course.

Anyways I hope this helped and since back to school season is hear, getting a couple pairs of these shoes in different colors wouldn't be bad... Hint..Hint!
