My Weight Loss Dilemma

I thought, if I stayed active, ate home-cooked foods with clean eating, rode bikes, took walks, and went on weekend runs with my son, that the excess baby weight would just melt away. It hasn’t. I tried several different training guides, by lifting weights, different cardio, and nothing is working. I fluctuate in the high 140’s to low […]

Happiness is ______ {Week Twenty-Six} #happinessis

2013 is going to be a fantastic year – a year where we collectively focus on the happy and the joy in our lives. What makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can’t get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle? Happiness is so […]

Weight Loss Update – WHOA!

HO-LY-COW! I can’t believe I’m actually writing this, but here goes: In the past 3+ weeks, it’s been all about spring cleaning and home projects galore. Between lifting heavy patio stones, huge mallets and hammers, nail guns, bags of sand, wheelbarrows, digging, raking, shoveling, planting and more, my exercise has come naturally by being more […]

Weight Loss Progress?

I started a new workout regimen to get back into the swing of things since the holidays, and it’s KICKING MY ARSE. I tried to put the giant bottle of peanut butter on the table earlier, after serving a spoonful to my son, and I almost couldn’t do it. I couldn’t lift and extend my arm […]

Today, I Won’t Be Perfect/Ugly/Wrinkled. I Will Just Be.

Today, I’m not going to see the gray hair, or the wrinkles. I will see the smile my children put there, and the green eyes I share with them. Today, I’m not going to pay attention to the dangling skin under my bicep, left from weight changes over the years. I will see the stronger […]

Weight Loss Update – Back in the 140’s! Woohoo!

I. Am. Almost. There. I can practically taste it. In April, I knew I had my work cut-out for me. It hasn’t been the easiest road. Having a verrrrrry difficult infant who clings to you like a drenched t-shirt makes finding time to work out almost impossible some days. (Note that I said almost, though.) […]

Weight Loss Update – Woohoo!

Momma is no longer sucking at this! Woohoo! Over the past couple months, together with my husband (who wanted to shed a few pounds, too), we took family walks, we ran, played at the park, did sit-ups, push-ups, dips, and overall stayed pretty active (on top of the normal, everyday parents-to-seven-freaking-kids kind of activity). As a […]


(We interrupt this program to bring you a special announcement.) THREE-POINT-ONE MOTHER EFFING POUNDS, YO! WOOHOOO!! Okay, let me catch my breath. Y’see, I was SO FRIGGIN DEPRESSED two weeks ago about not seeing a change on the scale in a good way. I was eating healthy, and working out, what was wrong? Seeing that […]

Weight Loss and Sucking At It

I hate the first of the month. (Weigh day.) I should look forward to it, because I should be seeing the scale move, with all the dieting and working out I’m doing, but I’m not. Instead, I saw TWO FREAKING POUNDS gained. What the hell? And then, trying to regain my composure, I taped myself, […]
