It’s time for another edition of the Thursday Three!! This week is the “Sugar Free” edition because, as most of you know, I’m on a sugar fast through May 14th.

Ya’ll will have to bear with me on this one. The holiday season has been difficult for me this year.  I’m not sure what exactly it is…..I take that back.  I know exactly what it is.  I am normally a busy person.  Any day.  Any year.  I am busy.  I have three kids.  My husband works a lot.  … [Read more…]

I must exert some sort of self-control or at least exhibit some sort of example for my family and children … [Read more…]

Let’s have a little fun with today’s Thursday Three. Do you ever wish you had more money in your pocket/in the bank?  To spend on things that just might not be in your budget?  Yes, I said BUDGET.  Ever since I became a SAHM, we have lived by a budget.  It took some getting used to in the beginning … [Read more…]

I talked a bit about the whole Exposed movement in yesterday’s vlog post and said I would expand on it more today, with a photo (eek!). We spend a lot of time being overly critical and negative towards our bodies. Maybe you don’t like your flabby arms, your sagging tummy, or your thunder thighs. We … [Read more…]

To be perfectly honest, I have days where I’m ready to throw up my hands. I’m tired. Tired of working out. Tired of watching my food ALL. THE. TIME. Those days can go a long way to throw a wrench in my quest for a healthy lifestyle. And if I let those days get the better of me? Well, it can get … [Read more…]

One of the biggest traps we can fall into when it comes to following a weight loss or fitness routine is that we get bogged down by the rules of the plan.

I know you’re all thinking that I must be blogging right in the middle of that recurring dream about how I actually restored that Latin language right in the middle of my 1oth grade English class. You know, the one where I stand up on my desk, rip my shirt off, and proclaim to the other 24 kids and … [Read more…]
