This Girl Can! Talk about a powerful statement. I saw the most amazing video the other night on You Tube. It was 90 seconds of pure awesome. Here it is. I jiggle therefore I am. Didn’t you just want to jump up and cheer when that flashed on the screen? I know I did. I have jiggled for as long … [Read more…]

We hit a big milestone today! One-hundred thousand Facebook likes. WOW! We know we wouldn’t be as awesome as we are without our loyal readers and fans, so to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support over the years (or even over the past 2 weeks!)! To celebrate YOU, we are … [Read more…]

***I was sitting in front of my blank computer screen trying to come up with ideas on what to write about for this post and had NADA, NOTHING! Nothing was coming into my brain. I had originally thought I might do a Vlog but decided I didn’t feel like listening to my graveling, congested voice and I … [Read more…]

Hello dear Shrinkers. I think this is my first chance to wish you all a Happy New Year! Aren’t you glad the holidays are over and a new year is here? I sure am. I’ve been off to a good strong start so far in 2015 in terms of getting in regular exercise and cleaning up the diet. I’m doing a 21-day … [Read more…]

Back in the early days of Shrinking Jeans, we used to have something called The Monday Project. Almost five years ago today, our assignment was to make a motivation board. The idea was to make something that you could look at to remind you of your goals and to keep to give you motivation when you … [Read more…]

  For several years we did monthly (or weekly) projects and for a couple of years we had “Dear Me” letters assigned to us to write by the lovely Christie O! I’m revisiting the idea so that we can sit down this week and write a Dear Me letter. Here are the guidelines. Have fun with it, but … [Read more…]

Good Morning! It seems like we had some glitches with our first email mailing for our A Year of Small Changes challenges. Well, that and a lot of people didn’t sign up in time, and now realize how awesome the challenge is going to be and want to see the email from week one 😉 So, we’ve decided to … [Read more…]

I put out a plea on Facebook 6 weeks ago asking for recommendations to get my life organized.  You see, the current method of google calender + to do lists written on random sheets of paper + various sizes of notepads with 18,000,000 pieces of information and details of our family life was no longer … [Read more…]

I’m not one for New Year’s Resolutions. Heck, I didn’t even go the goal route last year. In fact, I just kind of skipped over the entire hoopla of making a resolution, listing goals and whatnot.  I ignored it all and continued on my merry way, which is what I suspect a lot of you do, too.  Or worse, … [Read more…]

The Psychology of Resolutions Lots of you are probably reluctant to, once more, make a New Year’s Resolution to improve your fitness. You’ve done it before only to see the motivation lessen and the old habits right back in place by mid-January. Why set yourself up to fail? But consider this – … [Read more…]

It’s New Year’s Eve. It’s the day we think of out with the old and in with the new. It’s the day that we think about all the things we are going to get right in the new year. It’s the day we think about all the things we are going to start tomorrow. I’m not the kind of girl who makes … [Read more…]

Welcome to the 2015 A Year of Small Changes, Sisterhood Shots! With the new year comes a new beginning, a new fresh start. Here at the Sisterhood we are making it a year of small changes! Small changes, over time, add up to big accomplishments in the end. If you’re like a lot people (me included) … [Read more…]

I know I’ve written about SMART goals here before.  This is an area I feel passionately about and as we look at the last days of 2014 and ahead to 2015, I feel it’s important to look at SMART goals again. SMART Goals Revisited To review, when you set goals for yourself, you must look at these … [Read more…]

I think we should take the quote Make Yourself Proud from Peter W. Smith to heart. It’s the last week of 2014 and I have heard a lot of people complaining about things they have done wrong this year, including inside my own head, but I think we should be proud of our accomplishments, no matter their … [Read more…]

This is the time of year when we look back to reflect and look forward to the future. There’s always big hype at the beginning of a new year surrounding goals, aspirations, transformations. The things that I WILL do throughout the next year to improve my life, my self, my mind and my overall … [Read more…]
