crooked eyebrow – 4/5 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Feeling heavy with guilt after stepping on the scale this morning. Although I did really well this past weekend, it seems that I did not have the self control at work. There was Mexican take out, pizza, pop and well….you get the idea. Each day I packed my lunch bag with a salad and each […]

I’m all over the new mini challenge for this week.  You’ve seen it right??  The push is to exercise 5 times this week for 30 minutes(or more). Now that 30 minutes does not have to be done all at one time. While I’m at work I am breaking it into 3 ten minutes sets. Not bad […]

Last night was  Christmas at my Mother’s house and there was tons of food as usual.  I went there knowing I was going to be good. I planned for it. Before I left I weighed myself  ( i like what I saw too!) and I put on tighter jeans so I could feel uncomfortable if […]

When I think holidays, I think pie. Not the turkey or the ham but the sweet, give me the big slice kind of pie. My taste buds are getting all excited just thinking about my favorite, French Silk Pie. Personally, I can eat the entire pie without blinking an eye. As I was getting our […]

I have so many things that I love. All good for the body, mind and soul. Here are just the few that I’m in love with this week. 1. Lush Bath Bombs- Nothing is more relaxing than a candle lit bath at night for me (with a glass of wine). Even more so a special treat […]

OH I’m shaking it all right… I have this problem, the only place I can workout in is my small living room. No big right? I put my 10 minute kick boxing DVD in and get started. Squats, kicks and shuffle here and there. Great huh? I’m moving, I’m getting my blood pumping… The problem? I […]

Oh man, the holidays are here. All the yummy baked goodies are becoming so hard to resist. Up until now I haven’t wanted any, but now? Now? I want them so badly that I can almost taste the sugar on my lips. So, you know what? I am totally going to have one but I […]

Life is all about doing things at  the right time. Knowing when to go, when to speak, knowing when to stop. For me this week  was a test of knowing when to stop… eating. This past week I wanted to snack more, take seconds at dinner, drink endless bottles of wine and scarf down all […]

To be quite honest, when I awoke I wanted to stay in my nice warm bed all day. I didn’t want to go to work and I certainly didn’t want to weigh myself today. I was doubting myself a bit. I knew that I had tried to squeeze in exercise and that this week was […]

I am all about breakfast food. Not only will I eat if for  breakfast but lunch and dinner too. When I ran across these low point breakfast recipes  I had to share… SCRAMBLED EGG BURRITOS Ingredients: 1 cup egg substitute 1/4 cup shredded reduced-fat cheese (such as Sargento Light Shredded Cheese) 2 (10-inch) fat-free flour […]

Normally if I  have a lot to keep me busy, I don’t snack. Today? holy cow. I should be doing laundry, grocery shopping and a few other things but I have no energy. None, therefore I’m not doing a thing. So I’m sitting and all I want to do is eat, munch and nibble. Thankfully […]

It’s one of those days. A day where by 10 o’clock in the morning I’ve had to repeat “stay strong girl, stay strong” to myself about 5,550 times. Really, that much… Mood wise I’m doing great but I have this uncontrollable urge to go to the vending machine and eat every hostess cake there is, […]

The total body balance ball kit by Gaiam Not only does this balance ball look fun to use, but after you get the hang of it, it is! A perfect way to add  variety to your at home exercise routine! Sure we can keep getting on the floor for endless hours of  boring abdominal crunches […]

Since eating at work is one of my biggest down falls I have started to plan and pack my lunch as well as snacks. Sure deep down inside I want to run out to Jimmy Johns (or Quiznos) and eat the best sandwiches and chips ever, but I can’t fight off temptations yet. That’s just me. I […]
