crooked eyebrow – 2/5 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I thought I had this whole week planned out with meal planning. Wrong. In attempts to conquer morning, afternoon and evening sickness I was a wee bit closer to figuring out what worked for me, or so I thought. What did work, isn’t working quite so well now. My plan was to eat small, frequent, […]

When we introduced the couch to 5K program on how to run, the first thing I thought of was, “Is this going to flare up my plantar faciitis again?” Have you heard of plantar fasciitis before? It all starts at the plantar fascia — the tissue along the bottom of your foot that connects your […]

Lisa has started Monday’s true confessions here at the shrinking jeans so I figured I would play along this week. I’ve had one of those weeks anyways… 1. I have not been drinking enough water, morning sickness is kicking my butt and fluids make me feel awful. 2. While I did have pizza on Friday, […]

This past week has been a whirlwind of emotions and I’m guessing the scale would only make it worse. You know what happens with me and emotions? Eating. Yes, even when I’m not hungry I will find something full of fat and sugar to eat. It’s automatic and a bad habit I have been trying to break. […]

Today was my second day of the couch to 5k program. I was pumped and ready to hit the treadmill right after work. The first week of the is simple and thankfully isn’t too hard for me yet. Right now my max on running is about 2 minutes, so it works. When the one minute […]
