 As of late, I have fallen off the fitness wagon. And then rolled down a hill, fell in a stream, and floated quite far. As of yesterday, I found my wagon and jumped back on. One major problem that I have when talking and reading about weight loss is calorie counting. I Don't Count Calories. I have so many friends that are so concerned with how many calories the are consuming, to the point that it becomes an obsessive tendency. And I admit, I was the same way for awhile. I do find it beneficial at the beginning of a weight loss journey to start counting calories so that you can realize how much you are overeating. That way, when you are later reading nutrition labels, you can decide if a granola bar is actually low-calorie, or "health" food.  However, after learning the proper amount of food you should be intaking, STOP COUNTING! Eating healthier is a much simpler solution. No person has ever become obese or overweight from eating too many vegetables and lean protein. Two important things to remember: Not all calories are created equal, 100 calories of Doritos is not the equivalent of 100 calories of broccoli.  And eat when you are hungry!!! Just make sure you are actually hungry and not bored.

The red carpet at the AMA's is always fun since all the celebs can dress more casual than a black tie affair. There were so many good looks tonight, but here are my favorites:

Psy, I love you and your sequin pants.

Fact: I was Ke$ha for Halloween 2010.
Another Fact: I think she looks wonderful in a demure look that is far from her style norm.

 Gwen Stefani wins for best hair and makeup, and this Balmain Jacket!
I die. No one else could pull it off.

 Damn, Jenny McCarthy, you look GOOD.

 I love the yellow of Kerri Washington's dress, the pretty lace, and the perfect coral heels. Usually more a spring/summer color combo but then again there are no seasons in Los Angeles.

Stacy Keibler, I will have your legs. And boyfriend. And this dress.

I didn't even realize this was the Backstreet Boys when I saw the photo. Suit Swag.
Seriously. She is always dressed perfectionately on the red carpet. 
And the Twiggy make-up... going to experiment right now...


Tonight at the AMA's, Nikki Minaj rocked the exact same Monique Lhuillier gown as Julie Bowen wore to the Emmy's. I have to say that I am 100% shocked that this dress was repeated on highly viewed red carpets. However, I think they both look awesome and it works for both of their style. Although this is pretty tame for Nikki!

Speaking of Julie Bowen...

My life has been 100% nuts lately, so to any of my readers out there (I'm looking at you man friend), I apologize for the lack of posts. That being said, I am about to bestow upon you the greatest gift of alll.

J Crew Factory.

I love J Crew, that is no secret. I love that they manage to create timeless and fashionable clothing that you know will be in your closet forever. But, unfortunately for myself it is a wee bit out of my price range. I speed over there as soon as the big sales hit, and frequent the sale section for good finds. Now, I don't live near any outlet malls, but I assume J Crew Factory is their outlet brand. So, you get the style, the cheeky fun colors and patterns, for a lower price! and right now everything is an additional 30% off and free shipping!

 Funnel Neck Coat, $228

 Infinity Scarf, $29.50

 Wool Pencil Skirt, $69.50 (Lots of colors!)

 Printed Ruffle Collar Top. $49.50

Colorblock Sequin Tank, $49.50

Stripe Sequin Tank, $59.50
Strip Top, $49.50

So, go now,

One more thing to add to my birthday list. I spent a month living and studying in Costa Rica. In my ecosystems class, we always went to an animal park where sloths roamed free. There, my unrequited love began. I just wanted to hold one so badly. But alas, the park doesn't allow you to touch the animals.

oh hai.

If I ever got to hold a sloth, my reaction would be ten fold.
