Fitness | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans – Part 9


So, let’s just get this out there right now. One week from today, at least one of us will gorge themself (or selves). I’m not naming any names me.

I know I should probably follow suit like a good little health-blogger and write up a bunch of healthy tips for avoiding the extra calories on Thanksgiving Day. Tips like […]

Today was the first day of my training for the 5K.  How do I put this? My legs are SORE!

I just might be the slowest runner out there, BUT I did it.  I ran the training as outlined for today:  5 minute warm-up, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 minute jog, 3 minute walk, 5 […]

.!. As some of you may know, back in August, I started the crazy, insane program called Chalean Extreme.  During the third week of the first phase, I was doing a bicep work out.  All of a sudden, I felt something in my elbow feel weird.

When working out, soreness can be a good thing.  If […]

I don’t think I’ve ever done a True Confessions post here at the Sisterhood. Imagine my surprise when I realized it was my turn. Ouch. I wish I could say, aw, I’m a  rockstar and I have nothing to confess, but I’m not, and I do.

I haven’t done my EAS 30-Day Challenge all weekend. I’m […]

I have been poring over article after article, looking for something to jump out at me to share with you guys in regards to fitness.  I am so tired- it is midnight and I just want to crawl into bed.  Nothing I read appealed to me or those things that did had already been written […]

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?
It’s one of my favorite episodes not just because it’s happened to me before but because I love it when Jerry gets on a rant about something […]

So, I’m training for this 5k. Again. I already completed one earlier this summer, but I wasn’t very satisfied with my time.  So I decided to sign up for another one. This weight loss/exercise thing is so hard (whine). Anyway, I’m training for a 5k on September 12th and I have found myself in a very, VERY dire situation.

I […]

Before I decided to get fit, I would always say, “I would totally work out, if I just had someone to work out with.”  And I would.  If I could find someone else that would work out with me, I would do it.  I didn’t necessarily need the person there to talk or socialize with, […]

Let’s rewind a little less than two years ago.  I was just beginning my weight loss journey and was convinced that cardio was the only way to go.  I didn’t need any of that other stuff, right?  Right. (Read with sarcasm.)
I came home one day after work in a hurry.  It was 5:20 p.m., and […]

Here’s what we want you to do: *Go blast your stereo, iPod, laptop… you decide! *Pick three songs.

*Here’s the […]

One of my biggest issues is exercise.  I’m not an active person, I never really have been.  I make an effort, but I just really don’t like to exercise. Go, me!

Realizing that I need to do SOMETHING, I wear a pedometer every day.  It really is motivating to see exactly how many steps I am taking […]

    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, […]
