BV Update: What's up with Joanne?

Hey girls! It's been a while since I've posted, my life has been a whirlwind of craziness. Ever since I started this journey of the BV Style Blog, amazing opportunities have opened up for me: started hosting my own makeup segment on a fashion tv show, been writing and producing a fashion section on curvy girls like me on a fashion magazine and if that's not all, working hard on my MBA. My life has been pretty great, and with all that's been going on, haven't been posting like a would've wanted.

I am on a not so new life quest, but this time, it's been persistent, and for good reasons: my health, my future hubby, and children! My weight went out of control, I couldn't bare to look at the scale, but the saying "hips don't lie" was spot on. It was so hard through the holidays, not that I deprived myself from eating, but I didn't enjoy christmas tradition goodness: pasteles, arroz con gandules, lechón and the rest of puertorican greasy heaven.

Some of the difficulties I've faced on my diet have been my crazy schedule, my budget & stress. A couple of tips I can give are: not to punish yourself if you have to eat on a fast food, or the occasional dessert. The important thing is, not to give in by cheating the rest of the day, try balancing your calories, and try to do some sort of activity, at least 30 minutes, 3 times a week. My Wii has been my exercise partner, so we change the routine every couple of days by alternating my games.  My goal is not to be stick thin, my goal is to be able to go to a store and not ask for the plus section, be able to run with my kids when I have them, to enjoy a new found confidence.

Hope you girls set your mind on your goals and make them happen, not from wishful thinking, but with action.
