*See the winner below in comments! You may or may not have heard me on Twitter professing my love for Pirate Brands Pirate’s Booty in the last few months. Seriously. I love the stuff. So does my husband, my kids, and even my dog! There are a few flavors I don’t care for all that […]

It’s Mailbag Monday! And time to pull out a question from our Sisterhood hat and try to answer it! This one’s for all us sisters and it’s one we get a lot. “How do you all get such freakin awesome giveaways?” OK, maybe it’s not worded quite like that, but the answer is the same. […]

Clean, simple eating. Sounds easy, right? And then you really start thinking about it. What is clean eating? How should you eat to best care for your body – to fuel it? To be healthy – all the while not completely denying yourself the foods you enjoy? It’s a toughie. A while back, I picked […]

At the Sisterhood, we’ve been reviewing and sharing tips from Weight Watchers new book: Eat! Move! Play! Here are some quick tips: EAT!

I just re-joined Weight Watchers.  I figured it was time for me to do so since I am having such trouble losing these last 20 lbs on my own.  I know losing the weight is more like a marathon versus a sprint, but oh my goodness, I do believe I am the slowest “runner” out […]

How many times have you heard, “DON’T DRINK YOUR CALORIES!”? Many, many, many times, right?  Right.  And how many times have you heard that artificial sweeteners are bad, bad, bad for you?  Many times, right? (That’s true, you know.  And a whole other post.) Well, what if I told you, I have found a 0 […]

Have you ever tried chicken sausage? It’s fantastic. I never even knew it existed until I began the journey into calorie-counting and I found it as an ingredient for something on Spark People. Its whereabouts in the grocery store perplexed me so I wandered around looking for it and found it above the breakfast sausage […]

Do you like hummus? I know I do, and my kids LOVE it. Seriously. My son grabs it out of the fridge and eats it all the time. Hummus is a delicious Middle Eastern dip made from mashed chick peas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, and various other flavors. We typically buy Athenos brand hummus, and […]

What’s white and black and AWESOME ALL OVER? My Bondi Bands. And yes, I say that in plural. Because I have 4. Here’s my collection (so far):  But only one of those was given to me by the wonderful people at  Bondi Band, as well as the rest of Team Shrinking Jeans, when we met Bondi […]

Here’s what I’ve noticed…taking care of myself is more than just working out and eating right. I find that if I’m not taking care the rest of my physical appearance – you know, showering, hair removal, doing some makeup, getting out of the yoga pants/workout gear from time to time, general primping – I’m just […]

I’m here to talk to you today about two very dirty little words. Words that strike fear into the most confident woman. Words that cause cursing to spew from the most innocent of mouths. SWIMSUIT SEASON. (Shudder) Here at the Sisterhood, well, we’re right there with the swimsuit dread. But, you know what? We all […]

So, this isn’t going to be the typical Saturday Review. I have this little 1/2 marathon, ahem, TOMORROW and I have been on a quest to find the perfect bottoms to wear for my 3-hour-ish run/walk. I have this awesomely cute skort from BornFit that I adore, only when I run, it rides up my […]
