So four days into the Kellogg’s All bran 10-day promise and I can honestly say that it is truly easy to add fiber to your diet. Even if only one serving at a time.  For me, adding a fiber packed snack has been the easiest. I feel that I’m clearing the way to better health, so to speak… Way back … [Read more…]

I set a goal to walk 5 times this week on the treadmill and I am failing miserably. Yesterday I read so many blogs that were talking about shredding and how they felt good afterwards. Just reading them pumped me up. Thinking to myself  “this is exactly what I need to read, I need motivation”. Well … [Read more…]

While everyone here at the sisterhood is gearing up to start the Shred challenge on Monday, I’ll be sitting this challenge out.

My plan was to eat small, frequent, … [Read more…]

Anyone who knows me can tell you that I have a HUGE sweet tooth. For me I feel that every meal I have needs to end with a sweet treat. Long gone are the days where I will load my diet full of unnecessary calories and fat, which is why I have chosen Jell-o sugar free pudding snacks. Every time I … [Read more…]

When we introduced the couch to 5K program on how to run, the first thing I thought of was, “Is this going to flare up my plantar fasciitis again?” Have you heard of plantar fasciitis before? It all starts at the plantar fascia — the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel … [Read more…]

Lisa has started Monday’s true confessions here at the shrinking jeans so I figured I would play along this week. I’ve had one of those weeks anyways… 1.
