Fitness | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans – Part 7


Good morning, everyone!! Happy Friday!! How did you do on this week’s project? The task this week was to sit your butt in 2011, picture what 2010 was like, and write a letter to yourself about it. What hurdles you have overcome and goals you have met.

I really loved doing this one because I told myself that […]

We’re all good. We’re all  great. We are all wearing our little shiny halos, right? NOT!!!! Maybe I’m just speaking for myself but I gotta tell ya, I have one big confession on this True Confessions day and it all centers around last Wednesday. Oh, that fateful day.

I need to erase this week and start over. This […]

**Congratulations to our winners: Audrey, Becca, and Tobey!! It’s time to get your dance on, girls!**

Have you ever watched one of those dancing shows and wished you could do those dances?  Or do you just like to shake your bootay in general?  (Some of you may or may or may not like to dance in […]

When you first start trying to lose weight, it feels like no one really believes that you’re going to stick it out. Ya know, based on past histories if you have them, like me.
At first there’s resistance. You get a lot of questions. A lot of tests. “Mom, can we buy those cookies? Honey, do you […]

This past […]

Ahhhhh. Bob Greene. I can see why Oprah loves him so much. He’s cute, has a nice, encouraging voice, doesn’t cuss or yell at you, he’s thorough in his instructions, AND he looks good in a tight t-shirt. Plus, […]

Yay! It’s Friday!! That must mean it’s time for something that rhymes with the Schmonday Schmoject! Yep, it’s the MONDAY PROJECT! This Monday Project was special, it was supposed to be a little funner than last week’s (which totally made me cry by the way, and I mean reading about everyone’s journey!)
This week, we worked […]

Good morning, sweet shrinkers! Welcome to True Confessions Tuesday, a place where we share all our dirty secrets and check our bull at the door. I, myself, am having a mini-pity party here. And my confessions are as follows:

1. We got hit with the most evil stomach flu ever (as I have already reported — it aided in […]

Since I was a little kid, I’ve always been negative realistic.  In some ways, it serves me well, but largely it sets me up for failure.  After all, it’s a defense mechanism. Expect the worst, but hope for the best – and by anticipating bad things, I may not try as hard to meet my […]

It’s hard to fight an enemy who has outposts in your head.  ~Sally Kempton, Esquire, 1970 “You think too much.”

That’s what I heard from my husband last night while I was talking to him about my fitness woes.  I was telling him that I have all these lofty fitness goals but I condemn myself to failure […]

It’s here! It’s here! (And yes, I’ve heard you all calling it “Homework” behind my back! ) OK, fine, I guess it is. But I really want us to think of this as yet another tool to arm ourselves in our constant battle with “Can I?”

Because yes we can! I love punctuation because it makes the […]

    Choose You

    I’m guilty of it and you probably are too. Most women are, in fact.
    What am I talking about? Putting your own health on the back burner to attend to the needs (and, let’s face it, WANTS) of others. There’s laundry to wash, fold, and put away. Breakfasts, lunches and dinners to prepare. Sporting events, rehearsals, […]
