December 2008 Archives – 2/5 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


When I think holidays, I think pie. Not the turkey or the ham but the sweet, give me the big slice kind of pie. My taste buds are getting all excited just thinking about my favorite, French Silk Pie. Personally, I can eat the entire pie without blinking an eye. As I was getting our […]

It’s almost Christmas! I’m sure you knew that, right?! So my inlaws are in town and today and the next few days promise to be a crazy whirlwind of gifts and outings and eating. Oh, the eating. I’m trying really hard, but it’s so hard. There are so many opportunities to eat so many wonderful […]

I have so many things that I love. All good for the body, mind and soul. Here are just the few that I’m in love with this week. 1. Lush Bath Bombs- Nothing is more relaxing than a candle lit bath at night for me (with a glass of wine). Even more so a special treat […]

OH I’m shaking it all right… I have this problem, the only place I can workout in is my small living room. No big right? I put my 10 minute kick boxing DVD in and get started. Squats, kicks and shuffle here and there. Great huh? I’m moving, I’m getting my blood pumping… The problem? I […]

Sunday, 12/14: Miles and miles of walking during shopping. That’s what it felt like! Monday, 12/15: Sat in vehicle for 8 hours. No exercising. Tuesday, 12/16: 50 minutes Precor AMT, 5 minutes odd Precor machine, 30 minutes arm/ab weights. Wednesday, 12/17: 40 minutes AMT, 30 minutes leg/ab weights. Thursday, 12/18: 50 minutes AMT, 30 minutes […]

Working out this morning was hard. Really hard. I didn’t want to go. Wouldn’t that be awesome of me to skip exercising on the first day of our new little challenge?? Anyway, I couldn’t let you ladies and gentleman down, so I drug my ass to the gym. I did my 30 minutes plus 11 […]

We now find ourselves right in the middle of our “Dreaming of a Light Christmas Challenge” and I hope that we don’t start losing steam. Christmas is just around the corner and we may be tempted to skimp on the exercise and indulge in the baked goodness surrounding us. The girls and I have decided […]

Oh man, the holidays are here. All the yummy baked goodies are becoming so hard to resist. Up until now I haven’t wanted any, but now? Now? I want them so badly that I can almost taste the sugar on my lips. So, you know what? I am totally going to have one but I […]

(Cue Lorrie Morgan song…) These are a few of my favorite things -health and fitness related of course! :o) 1. My iPod. I could not and WOULD NOT exercise without this baby. I have a 30GB that I got for Christmas a few years ago and it is not even close to being even HALF […]

Sorry that I have been missing in action lately! I have been traveling like crazy and just can’t seem to get caught up with everything. Not to mention that having four children in elementary school is keeping my head spinning. Aaugh! I have been failing miserably keeping track of who needs what on which day […]

Yes, ladies (and man), it’s that time again. We are so proud of you for making it this far!! Time to pull the old scale out, blow the dust off, and step on. Are the numbers dropping for you? Good! If not, that’s okay too, but buckle down because we’re about to enter the hardest […]

…and the pizza won. It’s been a hellish few days for me. My daughter, Mia, is sick with a mad cold. Nothing makes her happy but being held and being nursed. Can I just tell you my boobs are sore? Mkay, now that I got that out, I’m wondering if I get extra points for […]

Water and Weight Loss It seems that every diet and wellness book will tell you the same thing, drink more water. It’s the starting point of just about every diet but do you know just how much you should be drinking? Do you know just how important water really is? With our bodies being 60-75%  […]

I made this recipe right before Thanksgiving and OMGoodness, it was damn awesome.  It was so good and moist that I have since made it again AND I am making it for all of the kids’ teachers as holiday gifts.  It even freezes well.  You don’t need to slather butter on it at all, just bake […]

Wow, I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted. I haven’t fallen off the wagon or anything, luckily, just been very busy. My 12 month old has been sick since Thursday and I’ve spent all of my extra time cuddling with her. I’ve done well with my eating, I just haven’t had time to […]
