Good morning shrinkers! If my calendar is right, today is Wednesday and that means it’s a weigh in day. It might be a check in day, if you are one of those lucky people who are already at your goal weight. It is hard to believe that there are only two weeks left in this […]

Who is up for a Tworkout tonight? Anyone? Numbers have been low recently and I want to see who is paying attention… So, if you’re up for it, tune into Twitter at 8 p.m. Central because tonight it mystery tworkout. You’ll know when you’re there what the exercises are going to be! Bwahahahahaha! See you […]

Ahhhh, it’s Tuesday once again and time to air my dirty (or not so dirty) laundry.  Also, it’s your turn too- woot woot! Here are my confessions- short and sweet style. 1.  Girl Scout cookies are the devil recreated in a cookie form.  I find it nearly impossible to just eat a few at a […]

This is one my favorite pictures, ever. Lisa and I had finished our long runs, and ran back to join Christy for the rest of hers. This pretty much sums us up. We’re there for each other. We talk about nutrition. We talk about exercise. We even talk about getting enough sleep. Water. Taking vitamins. […]

Today’s “review” is a different review of sorts. It’s not really for a specific product, per se, but rather for a type of food. How about I just stop beating around the bush and tell you about it, m’kay? M’kay. I’m a big fan of rice. When I was growing up, I used to come […]

This week my Kindergartner had homework. There were little boxes on the paper and in each box he was supposed to write down something on our grocery list, spell it out how it sounds and then draw a picture to go with it. The example they gave was a picture of an apple and the […]

Have you looked at the calendar lately?  If you haven’t, then you might be as shocked as I was last night to realize that Valentine’s Day is just FIVE days away!  While the big day may be right around the corner, there’s still plenty of time to find that perfect gift for that special someone […]

Good morning everyone! Isn’t today just beautiful? Today is Wednesday (in case you didn’t already know that) and you know that that means! It’s time to check-in (or weigh-in if you’re a shrinker)! Did you have a good week? Sunday was Super Bowl, so I know that may have been a challenge for some of […]

        You do want a Tworkout, don’t you? Sure you do! I know how much you look forward to the Tworkout! Are you new here? Want to join in? It’s simple! Just hop onto Twitter at 8 p.m. Central and we all workout together while watching our favorite TV progTrams! It’s a […]

Confession is good for the soul, folks, so I’m confessing. My failures this week have been with food. They haven’t been awful. They have been a big lack of self control. Three nights this week, I have had a bowl of ice cream. Twice it was in the middle of the night. How stupid is […]

OK Sisters, this one will be quick.  I am not feeling very wordy today : ). Sundays here at Shrinking Jeans were the days we posted recipes and a weekly menu plan. However, that is all changing with the new addition of Shrinking Kitchen.  If you read regularly, then you already saw the post announcing […]

Tomorrow is the big day!! Can you believe it! This one team is playing this other team and we are going to celebrate by stuffing as much food into our face as humanly possible!! HURRAH!! No, wait. Stop and think about it. Why would we celebrate watching other people being fit by stuffing crap into […]

How are you on this fine Friday morning? Are you excited for the weekend? Any big plans for the Superbowl? *You may have heard about the tragic case of Sherry Arnold over the last few weeks. A much-loved school teacher, mother, and wife from Sidney, Montana, Sherry went missing one morning after heading out for […]

Today is Go Red For Women day. Are you wearing red? More importantly, do you know what today means? Let me fill you in – the American Heart Association has designated today as a day to wear red to create awareness surrounding heart disease in women. Though heart disease is often thought of as an […]

Happy Groundhog Day! Today’s the day we learn our (possible) collective fate, the prediction from a tiny little furry creature in a hole: will we get 6 more weeks of the treadmill or bike trainer? (Yes). You may be wondering what on earth fitness and Groundhog Day might have in common but I assure you […]
