Spandex & Tumbleweeds


It’s been awful quiet around here. For the past several months I’ve been focusing on rebuilding my health, training for races, and my first marathon, in Paris (I’ll post on that over on my travel blog). Hence the over-saturation of health-related posts on my Twitter timeline! But in immersing myself in the world of health and fitness, I had forgotten about my love of fashion. No doubt working out has caused me to lose tons of pounds and inches (over 40!) but my weight loss and lifestyle has relegated me to a sea of spandex and running shoes – both out of fear and complete confusion.

A recent glance at my closet had me realizing that I had nothing to wear. All my clothes were just too big, unflattering, or just not my taste anymore. So I’ll be taking the next few weeks to gather some Instagram and Pinterest inspiration, while I find my new style. Nothing like a fresh start.

So, About Instagram

I joined Instagram way back in 2010-ish. But all these years, I was just not that into it. I’m really not a narcissist, so posting endless pictures of myself was just not very appealing to me. But very recently, I’ve found some very cool and interesting connections through the social media site, and have accidentally become addicted. I’m happy to say that I’ve been put on.  And my meme’s are pretty fresh, if I do say so myself.
