Looking Fabulous & The Weekly Weigh In

TGIF!! If your new today, I extend to you my warmest Southern Louisiana Bienvenue! I'm so freaking happy you're here! If you're a repeat offender, I'm just itching to know what ya'll think of Elle Noel's new look!?

I'm flat out obsessed. I've been using my remedial html skills to get me by thus far, but I have been saved by the Stanfield Clan over at Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally. Holly and her tech savvy html wizard husband Chris really hooked me up with the new look.

This is how I described my blog "vision" or lack there of to Chris, "clean design in "girly girl" colors with a cursive "leggy" font. Classy but a little bit trashy" All over the place much? I don't even know what to do with that hot mess.

Three days and $40 bucks later, ya that's it, 40 bucks for all this fabulousness, voila! Presto! I'm so peachy pleased it ain't even cute. If you're looking for a new design for your blog, don't hesitate in contacting Chris and Holly, be prepared to be razzle dazzled by html magic! Make sure and add, Where We Can Live Like Jack and Sally to your list of favorites while you're there. Holly's blog is hysterical, relate able, charming, and motivational. She's that crazy cool friend you've always wanted. She's inspired me to think about trying to run stadiums. Did I mention she has TWO little chickadees? Ya and she finds time to run stadiums, she looks A-maz-ing!

It's weekly weigh in time. I didn't lose and ounce. Not surprising. I had too much fun over Labor Day weekend, I knew I was having too much fun as I shoveled a third chocolate chip cookie in my yap, but oh well. It happens, moving forward....

Thursday was a Boss Lady bad ass day.

2.5 hours total ( includes 5am work out) whooping up on some fat, keeee yawww it burns so goood! Thursday afternoon work out summary- 30 minutes on the stair master. INTENSE. Followed by abs, a bat shit crazy ton of squat jumps, and booty work! Oh yeah!

Stair master + me = FRIENEMIES

Last night's dinner was one of my personal favorites. Weight Watchers Bubble Up Enchiladas.

*Wipes up drool*

Disclaimer- I'm about to brag on my man- I dragged in from the gym at 7:00pm all sweaty and exhausted from my crazy long boss lady day (started at 4:30am), and my husband had cooked dinner AND done the laundry. Ya, he worked his tail off all day too. I struck gold marrying that man :)

Friday morning 4:30am *buzz buzz buzz* goes the alarm clock!

45 Minutes on the elliptical followed up with Booty Work and Tone It Up Abs both new pins on my Beastmode Board.

Notice I look a little *insert Steel Magnolia-esque Southern Drawl* dduurrrtyy in my pictures from this morning. This is because Boss Lady got herself a spray tan last night! Holla!

It looks heavy until after the first shower. Diva status? Who cares!!

I roll with a simple motto. If it makes you feel fabulous, just go on wit-cha bad self cher
(pronounced "sha" - Cajun term of endearment).

My man and I have a really fun weekend planned. Hence, the spray tan, lots of pictures.
I may even get fancy and crack out my real digital camera for ya'll!

Did I mention I'm currently obsessed with Instagram? Follow me, I want to follow you too!
