Featured | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans – Part 7


I made this to go with steaks for dinner one night a few weeks ago. SO YUMMY! Even the kids gobbled it up using Baked Tostitos scoops! It’s all good as an appetizer, late night snack, on chicken, by itself…..well, you get the picture. In the famous words of DJ Lance from Yo Gabba Gabba: […]

This past week has been a huge struggle for me, workout wise. I’m hurting, and it’s kind of freaking me out. I listened to some of my fellow Sisters last week in one of our Team in Training conference calls, who were having a hell of a week LAST week. The OHMYLORDIMUSTBEOUTOFMY MIND week.

Pretty sure this […]

I am nothing without goals. I am constantly setting new goals for myself and am always dreaming of bigger things. I feel my best when I have something I am striving for, something I am set on achieving. Seriously? What’s life if you just stick to the same old routine? Pretty boring, if you ask […]

So, I’m going to switch things up a little bit this week.  Instead of confessing things I’ve done bad, I’m going to confess things I’ve done good. Is that bad English?  Things I’ve done well?  Things I’ve done good? Things I’ve done right?  Yeah, that sounds better.  I’m going to confess things I’ve done right.

No bull […]

This weekend, I went for my long run for Team in Training.  Most runs, I let my mind go blank, forgetting about stresses and troubles and to-do lists at home.  I let my mind go free from all of it, letting my iPod pound out good music in my ears. And this weekend’s run was the same.

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times. EAT YOUR BREAKFAST!  No, it’s not me yelling at you, it’s them. You know the ones. The ones we refer to when saying “They say you should eat your breakfast!”  Whoever “they” are. The really smart people who do all those studies who […]

My own motivation has been a little lax lately.  There’s no real reason…it just happens every once in a while.  You’re coasting along and every thing is hunky dory.  Suddenly, you realize that you are sitting like a bump on a log, you haven’t exercised in a week and yes you did eat a whole […]

I love Mexican food and I love enchiladas.  However, I don’t eat enchiladas very often because OMG, that fat and the cheese and the FAT. Until now.

For a brief while, I had a free membership to Cook’s Illustrated.  During that time, I printed out as many recipes as I had time to.  This is one of […]

    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, […]
