March 2009 Archives – 3/6 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC

I was just reading through my new Whole Living magazine and came across an article on Eating Right for Under $15.  One of the recipes sounded really good, and although I haven’t tried it, I thought I’d share it with y’all. This yummy-sounding recipe packs in 18 grams of fiber and a whopping 19 grams […]

Remember a few weeks ago when we asked you to dig deep and leave some questions for TJ, the personal trainer and co-founder of For U Mothers? Today, I am going to share all of the questions and answers with you… I have to say I learned a lot! Q:  Is it more beneficial to […]

I did the 8:30am Cycle class this morning at the gym. I have not done Cycle since before I was pregnant, over a year ago. Today, “cycle” kicked my ass. And I loved it. I was breathless within the first 15 minutes of class. I was dripping sweat. Every time my legs came up during […]

One of the biggest traps that you can fall into when you are on a weight loss journey is to worry too much about how far you have to go. What about focusing on how far you’ve come? Brian touched on this a little on Monday when he shared his Wii Fit weight chart. I’ve […]

I went to the gym this morning and it felt WONDERFUL!! I had a great workout… 30 minutes on the Precor EFX, 15 minutes on the Precor AMT, and 45 minutes of weights. I am hoping this feeling will be around for the rest of my workouts this week! ;o) Happy St. Patrick’s Day! **I […]
