It’s been awhile since I’ve done the tooting around here! Hold on while I grab a shovel, I might have to dig REAL DEEP! I kid… sort of. So, last week, I drug my ass to my local YMCA… you know, the one I used to visit on a regular basis. I got on a scale and weighed in WHILE someone else was … [Read more…]

I had today’s post all planned out in my head. Then….Mel posted a story about her cruise. Basicly, it was almost the same thing I was going to write about. I told her so in the comments. Don’t get me wrong, it was a great post. It just kind of took the wind out of my sails. Ann (bless her … [Read more…]

Good morning, shrinkers! I know, I know. I’m a little behind on posting the results. I apologize! I have a good excuse though – we brought a very adorable little baby into our household last week -our first foster child! I’m trying to adjust to having FIVE kids. Oh my! We have had amazing … [Read more…]

As if my life isn’t crazy enough, it got even crazier this weekend when the 3.5 yr old accidentally caused an accident in my minivan and now said minivan is not drivable and can hopefully be fixed by the nice folks at the body repair shop down the road.  Or those same nice folks might tell us that … [Read more…]

As in, where are you now? Or, more specifically, where am I now? I’ve been a part of Shrinking Jeans since nearly the beginning.  The third child that was a mere infant when I joined is now 3.5 years old- O. M. G. I find myself going through phases with this journey- taking it slow, doing … [Read more…]

Good morning, ladies and gents! How did the first week of the weight loss challenge go? Are you finding support in your buddy? Staying accountable? Kicking ass and taking names?

Did you know that it was National Women’s Health Week? Me either. I wish I had found this out for last weeks post. That’s okay though. It’s not too late to find out what it’s all about. The government website gives this definition of National Women’s Health Week….. National Women’s Health … [Read more…]

If you are anything like me, it’s hard to find the time in a busy day for exercise. The month of May is manic for me. We have seven family birthdays. The last month of preschool gets really crazy. We have preschool olympics (which I love) but, it takes so much planning and getting ready for. … [Read more…]

Finale? Really?! Where has the time gone? I might be having a minor panic attack when I think about the fact that May is already half over and the kids are going to be done with school in two weeks. We have been Springing into Action for the past several weeks. Remember back on Day One when we … [Read more…]

Many, many years ago when I was in grade school, we learned a little rhyme about multiplying fractions. It went “Ours is not to wonder why, just invert and multiply”. I’m not sure what got me thinking about that last week, but I couldn’t get it out of my head. I was driving myself crazy the more … [Read more…]

There’s safety in numbers. Recently, I was thinking about the things I’ve done during my … [Read more…]
