For me, one of the biggest deterrents to weight loss is laziness. After a stressful day it’s just so much easier to order a pizza or get Chipotle than it is to cook. But that’s exactly why we’ve been coming up with easy, low-carb, healthy, delicious meals.
Sometimes on a lazy Saturday I like to play dress-up in my wardrobe and come up with new outfit combinations. Mostly they’re crazy – but occasionally I stumble on something that actually works.
It’s no secret that I’m a pretty huge fan of ASOS. I’ve spent many an evening sipping red wine, binge watching First Dates and scrolling through 100 pages of dresses, jumpsuits and swimwear. I’ll click the ones I like until I have 45 tabs open and I eventually have to restart Firefox. Then I’ll go through my edit, choose the best of the bunch and add them to my cart.
If you’ve been in a relationship for between two weeks and one year, Valentine’s Day is a special time to get all dolled up, shave your legs, spring for a blowout and a mani-pedi and enjoy an over-the-top romantic date night with your man.

In case you haven’t heard, today is Blue Monday – the so-called most depressing day of the year. Apparently the day is based on an actual scientific equation involving the weather, personal debt levels and the disappointment of failed New Year’s resolutions.
Well, we’re two weeks into the 10 Pound Race 2.0, and the results are in. Here’s where we are so far.
