Featured | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans – Part 8


We are getting ready to embark on another odyssey of the 30 Day Shred here at the Sisterhood. I do love me some Shred, but I will be sitting this one out, since it’s not really compatible with my herniated disc problems! I thought it would be fun to write about some of my other […]

Just when you think you’ve got this whole healthy living thing figured out – something jumps out in front of you and trips you up. Your vices. Pitfalls. Weaknesses. We all have them. The trick is figuring out how to own them and show them who’s boss.

My pitfalls? Oh, there are MANY. Believe me. But it’s […]

Yippee!  It’s Tuesday and I get to share with all of you, my friends, my internet peeps, my “confessions” for the week.  For all it’s worth………………..

The Good

I exercised HARD last week- Monday (weights), Tuesday (running), Wednesday (elliptical), and Thursday (mini-triathlon).
Say what?!  A mini-triathlon?  As in, swim 500m, bike 12 miles, AND run 3.1 miles?  Yes, yes, […]

When my husband was out of town last weekend, I missed a ride with my triathlon group because I didn’t have anyone to watch the kids. (I used the bike trainer in my living room instead.)
And that was just fine with me, it was freakin cold outside and after everyone got done with the ride, […]

I have just recently started eating shrimp.  I’ve never been a fan of shellfish, fish, crustaceans, or any other word for things that inhabit water.  But, I’m learning, because it really is a low-fat healthy way to get some good protein in you.
I found this recipe in the January 2009 issue of Fitness Magazine. The […]

When I was a little girl, I was not a runner. I preferred riding my purple bike with a big white banana seat and handle bar streamers to just about anything. No matter how many times I fell off that bike, I got right back on and kept pedaling. I loved to feel the wind in […]

I have tried a couple different times trying to do the 100 Push Up Challenge, but I always run into a problem around week four. My lower back is KILLING me.  It’s actually my back (and not my arms) that hinder my progress in that endeavor.

I was reminded of the same pain while I was doing […]

What is that you say?  The answer is no, we aren’t skipping a weigh-in just because we are in between challenges! Go ahead, head over to your scale, step on it, peek at your weight, and then come back here and tell us all about it.  Yes, really. Today really is a weigh-in day.

How did you do?  Fantabulous or craptastic?! I was […]

Good morning all!  It’s Tuesday and ya’ll know what that means.  Time to confess!  Did you eat tons of Valentine’s Day candy?!  Let us know! Here are mine! 1.  It’s been a long time since I’ve confessed, so that’s a confession in itself, no?

2.  Being the single gal that I am, I spent Valentine’s Day right here […]

Most Sundays, my parents make the 1 1/2 hour drive south to our house to visit, maybe help us out with a house project, and have dinner. I love seeing them, even though I’m pretty sure the main draw for them is the grandkid. (Okay, not pretty sure, I’m positive. My mom flat out TELLS […]

    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, […]
