22 & an allie mac maxi skirt giveaway

ya’ll i’m pretty jazzed to tell you i’m officially down 22 pounds! while that’s not 100 pounds and while i basically started this in january, i’m still happy!

i put this on my instagram the other day. i had a few questions about what i’m doing different so i figured i’d share the secret here. i hate to disappoint you as i don’t have a magic diet or yummy new green smoothie recipe to share…..i have one word for you. old school. i’m eating a less and exercising more. that’s it.

after running 2 half marathons in the last 2 years it felt like my body plateaued with running. i was not losing weight, if anything i was gaining. and despite running pretty long runs my body wasn’t looking any different. throw in that i’m 47 and trying to lose weight after 40 and you can see how tough this was becoming.

so clearly i needed to mix things up. for a while i was trying to juice several times a week, but honestly that takes a little more time and devotion that i have on a regular basis and i think a vitamix will change my life and i don’t have $500 for said vitamix…so. i usually eat very light in the morning, maybe an egg, or an avocado or a small yogurt. my coffee has flavored creamer and sugar. sorry. lunch is usually a small veggie, protein ( i love almonds), sliced turkey, avocado and fruit. for dinner i eat what everyone else is eating. see? how unsophisticated is that?

i honestly believe the big changeroo was switching to cardio multiple days a week and only running a couple times. so i take spin, piloxing ( which is pilates & kickbox), kickbox and occasionally a bar ( weights ) class.  clearly 22 pounds since january isn’t blazing speed but i’m hoping slow weight loss and these minor life changes are things i can keep up with and help keep the weight off.

and the other secret. iphones make you look thinner. i swear i’m thinner in these photos than in real life. true story. see below shot? i still have the worlds roundest face. don’t be deceived by the iphone photo.

and another true story. most days i’d much prefer to stay home in my comfy new slippers and get some work done. but 3-4 days a week i’m heading over to the gym. maybe if i went 5-6 days i’d be down 50 pounds by now. ha.

i’d love to introduce you to allie mac designs.  allie mac sent the girls and i some skirts to try out & i wanted to share these with you & give you an opportunity to win one. if you’ll leave me a comment stating you’d like to be entered and that you liked her facebook page  i’ll post a winner next week. the skirts are made of super soft fabric. allie will work with you to give you fun color options and she often times runs specials…i think this evening she’s running one on her facebook page for the anna maxi the girls are modeling below.

thanks allie mac!! we’re enjoying our skirts & we wish you much success in your business this year!

yesterday was a super exciting day for Noonday! the launch of the new fall line has been awesome! i will continue to share pieces and stories over the next few weeks.

in the images above, madison is modeling the gold deco earrings. these were the first pair of earrings i purchased through noonday a couple years ago & i love them. we wear them all the time & they still look as gorgeous as they did on day one, made of 22k gold vermeil. these measure just over 2.5″x2″.

she’s also wearing the ever popular embira seed bracelet made in uganda. this little cutie is a staple in the knudsen home and you’ll often times see my girls wear theirs daily. at $28 it’s a great gift idea too.

emily is modeling the la jolla necklace

and the metallic halo earrings which i think  i’ve worn every day for the last 6 weeks! we introduced a new version in cherry red for the fall that are super fun too and would be great game day earrings for all my uga friends! and will also look great on you gorgeous ole miss girls & maybe an ohio state fan or two? as you can tell, we’re getting pretty excited for the upcoming start of college football around here! dan & madison are heading out saturday to see the home opener at Georgai Tech! fun times!

oh & ps. only two pieces left from my sample sale here

Hannah - CONGRATS!!!! and 22 lbs is AWESOME!!!! totally agree with the running. i ran my first half at seaside 2 years ago and i HATE running, but figured the training would keep me in shape over the winter. not only did i not loose weight..i GAINED it. ugh! so i was done with running! i have discovered that my body does better with high intensity in short bursts. so those long runs just weren’t cutting it! :( you look GREAT! old fashioned always works best! :)

Sue - Allie Mac – so cute! Would love to win! Congrats on the weight loss, I too changed my eating habits and exercise routine (switched from long runs to short bursts of cardio, added strength training) and have had great success as well! Slow and steady is the way to go!

August 29, 2013 - 10:02 am

D'Nese - 22 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. You should still be VERY proud of yourself. You look amazing. It’s hard work and a daily struggle, but you’re keeping on it. Little by little. My trainer always tells me that “it didn’t take a day to put it on and it won’t be off an a day. Don’t ever give up. The fact that you came, you’re here, you’re working towards your goal already has you a lot futher than you were before you even started.” I remind myself of that every day and you should too. I’ve always been a curvy girl. I don’t mind that, but I’m also only 5’0. I truly can’t afford to have extra weight on me, so when I gained an extra 80 pounds after I had my son it SHOWED and it showed BAD. Since I started on my lifestlye change, I dropped 105 pounds. I look at myself from before and wonder how in the heck did I even let myself get like that. Truthfully, none of those details are important at the end of the day. I made the change, I worked my tail off by doing exactly what you’re doing (the good old fashion way) and just think differently now. It feel amazing. So, allow yourself the bragging rights of 22 lbs because girlfriend you earned that! Rock that new bod. Best of luck on the rest of your adventure. I know you can do it.

God Bless you and yours.

I actually gained 5 pounds training for the marathon. I’m in such a rut right now. But yesterday I made a big step in getting back in shape. Finally went to the doctor and started getting treatment for my hip. Going to try to finish the therapy this time and make myself a priority.

Deborah - Hi Paige. I’d love to be entered. Congrats on your weight loss. You look amazing. I too have been on a “healthy eating and exercise (not calling it a diet because I always fail) program” that I made up and so far I’ve lost 58 lbs since the day after Mother’s Day this year. While that may seem like a lot I still have 58 to go. :-( I guess you could say I’m at my half way point. Who knew that actually eating healthy (code word for not personally making Coke stocks soar with the amount I use to drink) and exercising (walking and riding my bike) would cause me to lose weight. We are mainly TRYING to eat as much unprocessed food as possible. Clean eating I believe it’s called. Not always successful at it but for the most part we are doing okay.
Your girls look precious. And love Emily’s hair. Oh by the way, we splurged on a vitamix with our Costco’s rebate check last Christmas and it has been a game changer. I use it most days. You won’t be sorry if you save up for this my friend.

August 29, 2013 - 3:07 pm

Deborah - Oh forgot to tell you, I love the navy and aqua necklace in your new line. I’m saving up for it as we speak. ;-)

Suzanne - Paige, congrats on your AWESOME
accomplishment! Way to go, girlie!!

I wore my embira seed bracelet today
and got two compliments. I have to say,
I get compliments almost every single
time I wear it, which is totally fun. Even
better than that is knowing how it helps
the artisans that created it. Fabulous.

Love the allie mac skirts and am off to
like her on FB. Funny how freeing it feels
to wear long dresses and skirts, especially
when it’s hot out. I think our female
ancestors would think we are nuts : ) but
it’s true!!!

August 29, 2013 - 11:27 pm

jodi - Miss Paige….you look F A B !!!! You have got to be so proud of yourself; 22…that is awesome! I truly believe that smaller portions and exercise is the key. I had about 20lbs to loose after my Mom passed away and I did the exact same thing; portion control and lots of cardio. Keep up the good work!!

The skirts are so cute, I love the little ruffley on the bottom. :) After you did your Jeanne Oliver course, I have been paying more attention to what I am wearing and making different clothing choices. I have even bought one maxi skirt,…they are so comfy; why haven’t I worn these before!

ps….I liked Allie Mac on facebook. :)

take care…jodi

I am juicing and exercising and it is not moving. ANd I eat pretty darned healthy. Sometimes, I just think this is the new me…10 pounds heavier than I usually am. Your post motivated me though that maybe I need to switch something up…push harder, try a new exercise.

LOVE the maxi skirt. GOing to LIKE her right now.
