Lisa – 2/17 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


It’s been over a month since we tooted our horns- I think we are overdue, don’t you?  Personally, I know it’s much easier to confess the *bad* but sometimes, we to shout the good, you know what I mean?  Also, I have some very good stuff to toot! 1.  Since August 5th, I have lost […]

Ghostly Gallop 2013 Virtual Race Results- How Did It Go? It’s race weekend- woot woot! Many of us runners (and walkers too!) write up race reports after finishing our races.  It’s a great way to capture the moment in writing because Lord knows I forget so much soon after it happens.  The more races I […]

I started writing for Shrinking Jeans in January 2009.  I am quickly approaching my 4 5 year anniversary with this lovely group.  I thought it might be fun to play *that was then, this is now*! 2009:  I weighed 188 lbs 2013: I weigh 163.4 lbs 2009:  I had a 4 month old, 2.5 year […]

Good morning ladies (and gents)!  How is everyone feeling this morning?  Hopefully, smaller, right?! It’s that day of the week where we check-in and weigh-in.  Yes, weigh-in.  Go ahead and get that over with if you haven’t already done so.  If you are like me, you weigh first thing after waking up, as soon as […]

 It’s Tuesday and time to lay it all out there.  Some weeks, I have a lot to bare and others, not so much.  Here we go- my list is short this week! I forgot that I was writing today’s post until about 5 minutes ago. I have decided to be *that* house for Halloween and […]

Whether you are single, married, have kids, have zero kids, or are an empty nester, we are ALL balancing different things. I rejoined the forces of working moms everywhere and I am dying adjusting to new routines. However, I am struggling.  I wouldn’t be human if I wasn’t.   I very much enjoy what I […]

The first time I added strength training into my fitness routine was 5 months after the birth of baby #2.  I had a 3 yr old and a 5 month old, I was chunky, and TIRED. I hated the way I looked and I was determined to do something about it.  I joined a gym, […]

Winner Winner! Lauren S- check your email for details. Thanks to all who *played*! I sweat….. a lot.  Also, I have a lot of hair.  So finding a hair band that is heavy duty enough to do the trick of keeping my hair back as I exercise or go for a run can be tricky. […]

I started the 28 Day Reset Detox that our resident Shrinking Jeans nutritionist Jodi developed.  What the heck is a detox?  This detox focuses on eliminating all the bad stuff from our bodies and foods known to cause allergies, cleansing the body from toxins and waste.  The focus is on eating lean meats, veggies, fruit, […]

If I do not hear from you by that time, then I will have to select another winner. Congrats! Lisa A good running shoe makes a world of difference for a runner.  In fact, once you have […]

I’m Bored!  Hearing those words whined from my children are like fingernails squeaking down a chalkboard.  It is so easy to give in to their demands for more screen time or electronics when you feel like you have nothing else to do.  Of course, there are always things to do and I am here to […]

Here is the next runner to share with you as part of our *Featured Runner Series*. I went to high school with Nanci- we were in marching band together and spent many hot summers and Falls together having a blast (she played flute, I played clarinet).  We lost touch after high school, going our separate […]

When I started writing for this site in January 2009, I weighed 188lbs, my heaviest ever.  My third baby was just months old and I was struggling in a big way with everything- lack of sleep, stress of three kids under 5 years old, a husband who worked and traveled a lot, not eating right […]
