Getting Healthy with Nutrisystem: Week 11.

I've had a really busy week and I worked really hard on fitting in my exercise too. It was difficult but I had to fit into a dress for a wedding this weekend. The good news is that I did!

All of my clothes are all too big. Belts don't cut it any longer. My pants just look baggy on me with belts. My shirts look oversized and everything looks so unflattering. I look like I am trying to hide in my clothes. I am swimming in my cute cardigans that I couldn't wait to pull out for fall. The problem is that I am not ready to shop for new clothes yet. Though I am down a solid size, I am not to my goal yet and I don't want to buy clothes that I will only be wearing for a few months. I don't feel like living in yoga pants and zip up sweatshirts either, but I don't know what else to do at this point.

Back to my exercise and fitting into the dress for a wedding this weekend. I found the dress I wanted and tried it on in two sizes. The 14 was clearly too big and the 12 fit, but was a bit tight around the bust. I didn't even know how to lose weight around my bust. Even with the right undergarments, it was still a bit form fitting up top.

I upped my walking to twice every day - each day this week. I walked faster, harder and longer each time. I also made it to the gym three times this week to use the bike for 30 minutes and get back to using the Cybex machines that I haven't used in months. It felt great!

Not only does my dress fit, it fits great; I have plenty of room up top. I am so happy to be in a size 12, you have no idea. I am also excited to report that I lost 4.5 pounds this week, making my total weight loss 20.5 pounds so far. That extra hard work really paid off for me.

The COVERGIRL Capitol Collection.

I can't wait until the movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released next month. I'm even more excited to see all the avant-garde makeup looks in action during the movie. It was all created with makeup from COVERGIRL. Of course they have a collaboration for all us fans who want cinematic color in wearable makeup, because let's be honest- we're not going to be running around in these exact looks, no matter how striking they may be. Use these looks as inspiration for your own fall look.

The COVERGIRL Capitol Collection District Looks

If you love a rich, opulent look, recreate the lip look of District 1 Luxury, the look on the top left. If you want a more natural look for fall, check out the skin, lips and nails in District 9, the look on the bottom right. To see all of the looks and to get product tips and tutorials, visit the Capitol Beauty Studio at COVERGIRL.com.

Top 10 Fall Collection Makeup Items 2013.

Even though it has not felt like it is fall (what is with the beautifully warm weather that I don't dare complain about), the calendar says it is in fact fall. I have been playing with a bit of fall makeup, but there is a lot more that I want to try. These are the top 10 makeup items that I am really loving from the 2013 fall collections.

Top 10 Makeup Items for Fall

1. CHANEL Ombre Essentielle Soft Touch Eyeshadow in Gri-Gri

2. NARS Eyeshadow Single in Yamal

3. MAC Fluidline in Deliciously Rich

4. Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Naked

5. MARC JACOBS BEAUTY Style Eye-Con No.7 Plus Shadow Palette in The Lolita

6. CHANEL Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystere

7. Smashbox Fade to Black Photo Op Eye Shadow Palette in Fade In

8. MAC Powder Blush in Bad Girl Gone Good

9. CHANEL Rouge Coco Hydrating Creme Lip Color in Icone

10. Bobbi Brown Rich Chocolate Eye Palette

I guess you can tell I am really into changing up my eye looks for fall. I have so many options, which I love. Yes, some are similar, but those that are do have subtle differences. Those differences are what make different makeup looks my own.
