September 2012 Archives – 2/2 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I was with a friend at a cook out over Labor Day weekend when we got to talking about an upcoming 10k and 5k  in our area.  Like me, she is relatively new to the whole running thing. When I looked at the registration form online, I grew a bit intimidated.  It had too many […]

Wakey wakey eggs and nakey! Nope that wasnt a typo, it is time, girlfriend. Time to wake up, get nakey and step on the scale! (Unless of course you’re a clothing weigher, either way don’t let me stand in your way, head on over and git ‘er done!) That wasn’t so bad was it? There […]

Welcome to another great edition of Toot Your Horn Tuesdays, where we brag all about how completely and utterly awesome we are. Seriously. It’s good for you, so just do it! Today is an important day in the history of the United States of America, so I just want to acknowledge September 11, 2001, the […]

Welcome to Becoming Me, a monthly blog series where I set out to answer questions developed by Christie Inge, HHC in an effort to dig a little deeper and get to the heart of some of my esteem, body, and food issues. Last month, I tackled the issue of whether or not I have “off-limit” foods. […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kraft Foods for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My morning routine consists of frantically running around trying to get lunches made, backpacks ready, pets fed, all the while trying to get a sip of coffee in here and there, feeding the foster baby […]

This is my favourite time of year. The kids are back in school, I’m back in school. There’s a nip to the morning air that whispers of the promise of autumn just around the corner. There’s a clean slate-feeling to September, isn’t there? The lazy (hah!) days of summer are behind us. The new notebooks […]

  I was reading Lisa’s post from yesterday and was struck by how she was embracing who/where she is right now, most specifically with her running.  While I’m not a runner, her post really got me thinking about how often I sell myself short, too.  I let myself get discouraged by how much weight I […]

I wrote this post before reading Christie’s post about negative chatter and Barb’s post about celebrating fitness and what our bodies can do.  Apparently, all of our great minds are in the same place- GREATLAND!!!  Join us. ******************************************* The only folks I pass on the running trail are the ones walking……and I am running. When […]

Ok people, it’s that time of the week again. Time to don your birthday suit and hop on that scale and see what’s happenin’! Or, if you are like me lately, what isn’t happenin’! What’s that you say? You need a nudge? How about this one for your body and this one for your soul? […]

I was all excited when I first read that I had this post a couple of weeks ago. I had been going great guns with my walking. I was using the Charity Miles app and felt like my walking was not just benefitting me, but also Autism Speaks. I was feeling good and walking farther […]

Negative Chatter Getting You Down? Me Too, Friend. Me Too. Lately it’s been on my mind that my workouts aren’t what they used to be. (Duh. How can they be? I had major surgery and I recently found out I have nerve damage from it which has made it extra hard.) That’s what it’s like […]

I passed  a man last night who was out for a walk. As soon as I saw him, I was reminded of all the articles you see in magazines that talk about people who started walking 5 minutes because that’s all they could do. Eventually, they started walking more and more and more and then […]
