March 2011 Archives – 2/4 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Ok, seriously, how can March almost be over already? Is it just me or is this year just FLYING by? Since we’ve landed on Tuesday, you know what that means — True Confessions Tuesday! Pull up a chair (or blog) and let’s get those confessions out, people! Forgive me Sisters (& Brothers), for I have […]

This week’s spotlight focuses on Kirsten. I love, love this woman. Not only is she one tough and speedy chick, she is an awesome mother and a great friend. I am counting down the days until she and her family show up on my doorstep in Bismarck in a few months! Name: Kirsten Blog: Running […]

Don’t keel over in shock but yes, I am here, writing a post on Shrinking Jeans.  I know I know, it’s been a while.  I won’t bore you with all the reasons excuses but let’s just say that I have been super busy.  It feels good to be back, doing one of the things I […]

Last night, I had plans to meet a friend at a sports bar to watch basketball before going to a local club for a friend’s birthday party. I had it all planned what I was going to eat, and I’m going to tell you now, it wasn’t healthy. Normally, this doesn’t bother me. If I […]

**Kranking, you ask? Well, first off, let me explain that when I first saw that word, I was immediately intrigued because “Krank” (pronounced kr-aw-nk) is my maiden name. Not overly common. And, get this. You use a Krankcycle. I’m dying here!! I must have a Krankcycle. Basically, you “pedal” the Krankcycle with your arms. A […]

I’ve been on a baking kick lately.  Nesting? Probably. My freezer is filling up with baked goods. The good news? I’ve been very conscious of the ingredients I’m using in my baking. I’m subbing whole wheat flour, using applesauce or yogurt instead of oil where I can, and experimenting with ingredients I usually don’t even […]

We’ve come to the end of week 2 in the Spring In2 Action Challenge! How are you doing? If you’re on Spring Break like me, you’re feeling a little lost. My kids are out of school this week, I have family visiting, and we are totally off of any kind of routine. SO FUN, but […]

So. I totally forgot that I was up for the post today. So I’m racking my brain trying to come up with an idea. Then I remembered that Roni (blogger extraordinaire and organizer of Fitbloggin’) did a post called The ABC’s of Me. Perfect! I’ll do an ABC’s of Weight Loss post. But crap. Now […]

Erin, get your tough self ready, because you are the winner of this Tough Mudder giveaway! Congrats! We will be in touch very soon! Hi everyone! It’s me, Kirsten.  I’m back over here guest posting at Shrinking Jeans because I have some amazing and awesome and, quite frankly, a little scary news.  Wait! Don’t go!  […]

Happy Tuesday! Has everyone had a good week so far? I know I have! Who is ready for an awesome Tworkout tonight? I know I am! And you know what? The rumor has it that we even have some prizes to hand out tonight! So head on over to Twitter at 8 p.m. Central for […]

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time to confess! And what a good time to do it, for some of us who celebrate, it’s Lent! So confess away! I’ll start it off. I am tracking calories and I’m pretty hardcore about it right now on My Fitness Pal (my username is Christieo_7 if you want to friend […]

Anyone who has  tried to leave a bag of Oreo cookies untouched in the cupboard, or hasn’t been able to stop eating a delicious restaurant meal, even after they’re full, can affirm that it certainly feels like an addiction. What else could account for otherwise smart, reasonable people wanting desperately to eat when they don’t […]

Good morning, Sisterhood! Thea has chosen Heather A. for the spotlight this week and I must say she is very deserving. She and her husband, Ryan, rocked our Olympics last month and were a force to be reckoned with! From Thea: She is an amazing mom of 4 and athlete who is training for her […]

I’m not going to lie to you. I’ve had a rough couple of weeks and I totally forgot that I had a post due today. It’s 11:51 p.m. and I just got home from moving our daughter and son-in-law to their first purchased home from their rental. I’m so excited for them, but I am […]
