Thursday Three – 3/3 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Do you ever wish that you could go back in time and change your actions or behaviors, or lack thereof?  Do you ever think- if I had only known that when I began xxyyzz, then I would be in a much better place/would have made better decisions/wouldn’t feel lik crap now? This Thursday Three is […]

I wanted to write something all clever for April Fools Day. Something to freak y’all out.  Cause I wanted to be all, APRIL FOOLS! Bwa ha ha! Best laid plans, right? Oh well, it’s the thought that counts. But, in the spirit of FOOLING, I thought I’d discuss ways I FOOL myself. I have plenty […]

I wanted to do some sharing this morning, some things that you may not know about the lot of us and some things that happened at Fitbloggin 10 (a conference aimed at gathering health bloggers all in one place that many of us went to over the weekend.) 1.  On Friday, the day I could not […]

I was sitting here (okay fine, I’m lying on my bed) thinking about how different the Sisterhood is now than it was a year ago.   It was only 4 months old.  A wee baby, just learning how to spread her wings.  Finding her place in the big scary world known as the bloggy world. She […]

I am nothing without goals. I am constantly setting new goals for myself and am always dreaming of bigger things. I feel my best when I have something I am striving for, something I am set on achieving. Seriously? What’s life if you just stick to the same old routine? Pretty boring, if you ask […]

Good morning! Have you had your breakfast this morning?? If you’ve heard it once, you’ve heard it a million times. EAT YOUR BREAKFAST!  No, it’s not me yelling at you, it’s them. You know the ones. The ones we refer to when saying “They say you should eat your breakfast!”  Whoever “they” are. The really smart people who do all those […]

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. […]

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 […]

I am so excited to write this Food Edition of Thursday Threes! I love food- what “free” time I have is spent scouring websites, cookbooks, cooking magazines, looking for those recipes that sound interesting to me.  I love to cook and I love to eat.  These two simple phrases makes it imperative for me to […]

This post is inspired by the oodles of time I have been spending at the gym this week, but it may or may not be based on my actual experiences. No feelings were hurt in this process. Things I would rather you not do at the gym: 1.  Could you please refrain from heading to […]

Yesterday was weigh in day, and we couldn’t help but notice that some of you are really struggling. Struggling with gains, with maintaining, with small losses. Well, this Thursday Three is going to be a gentle reminder, that it’s not always going to turn out exactly the way you want it to. Losing weight is […]

Well good morning to you, and you and you over there in the cubicle at work. Welcome back to another Thursday Three here at Shrinking Jeans where we list three things to chat about. Yes, we want you to join in on the list of three too! After all, it is all about sharing, right? This […]
