Product Reviews – 4/14 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I’ve been in a major slump. I mean major. In all aspects of my life, it’s been a hard year, and I am ready to close the books on 2011 for good. With all the curveballs thrown my way this year, I lost site of me: my health, my fitness, my well-being. This is definitely […]

I was doing the weekly grocery shopping I hate grocery shopping and came upon these new cookies. They are called WhoNu? nutrition rich cookies. I was pretty skeptical. How could cookies be nutrition rich and still be good? I decided the only way to find out was to buy some and give them a try. […]

Confession. I love baked goods. Baked goods also love me…well, they love to hang out on my midsection and thighs. That counts, right? My motto when it comes to baked goods is AVOID AT ALL COSTS. If I have muffins, cookies, home baked breads, scones, whatever, in my house, I will be unable to resist. […]

  Sweets. I really, really, REALLY love sweets. They are my diet downfall. I like to blame my hippie parents for depriving me of sugar as a child. Total denial of sugary cereals, candy and snacks turned me into a sugar fiend. As soon as I was out of the house…BOOM…I was knee deep in […]
