christieo – 14/14 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Well well well. It’s that time of week again, the kind where we spill our guts all over the page for the entire internet to see. I confess to you all the following: 1. I bought a “perfect brownie” pan. (Do you mean, the one that makes ALL EDGES?! Why yes I do!) I  couldn’t help myself, truly. It was … [Read more…]

Dear Sisters, I would like to run a 5k with you. Sincerely, Christie O. The end. That’s my letter to all of you. Remember how Lisa posted this little thing about a 5k a couple weeks ago? The EA Sports Active people want us to train for a 5k and they’re giving us 4 weeks AND a training plan to do it! … [Read more…]

Can I get a woot woot for football season?? OK, so some of you may not be as super-excited about the beginning of football season because that means for the next few months you’re a “football widow,” but most of us here at the Sisterhood are of the football-watching variety.

It’s TMI Monday — er, True Confessions Monday, so here are mine and I’m gettin’ a little deep here, so I’ll show you mine if you show me yours, m’kay??? Here we go. 1. I made an entire meal for watching college football Saturday night using Weight Watchers recipes. 2. I didn’t tell anyone. … [Read more…]

First I want to say if you need any workout gear, there is a 20% discount going on over at Sports Basement!  They rock for giving these awesome shorts away! And yes, I have partaken in the discount myself, I went over there myself and bought my very first tri-suit which is an entire suit made of … [Read more…]

I am not ashamed to say that I have been self-conscious of my body pretty much all my life. My mom was a stick figure with that rapidfire metabolism that devoured cheese, burgers, grease and chocolate with an impressive speed and accuracy. As it so happens, she saved all those genes for my sister. … [Read more…]

Did you ever see that Seinfeld episode where Jerry was waiting for the rental car and the lady at the rental car counter said there weren’t any cars left?
