I was so humbled to be chosen by TrishB for the Sisterhood Spotlight. Trish is one amazing lady and it has been so, so, so much fun getting to know her and being the recipient of her unending encouragement. She has been an amazing teammate on our Shrinkvivor journey and I couldn’t be happier to … [Read more…]

Please do not hate me for sharing this recipe. I am not a “sweets” person. I can have ice cream/cookies/dessert/chocolate sitting in my pantry for long periods of time before I ever go near it. However, I am a “salty snacks” kind of gal and I have to be careful of what I have nearby when the … [Read more…]

Some of you may or may not know this, but I love to cook and eat…hence the long time it’s taken me to lose the weight- HA!.  Christy has been known to call me up all of the time, tell me what’s she got in the fridge and then I will give her dinner ideas.  I have an obsession with cooking magazine … [Read more…]

I like to run.  Well, it’s more like wogging (walk+jogging) but whatevs.  I get the job (ie mileage) done. Prior to October 2009, I was vehemently OPPOSED to running.  I mean, it hurt, I sweated a lot, my breathing sucked, and did I mention that it hurt?  Why would I want to willingly and knowingly … [Read more…]

It’s True Confessions Tuesday. I’ve been a bad girl, a very bad girl. Let’s get started, shall we? This past weekend, my girlfriend Kim got married in Columbus, Ohio.  Anthony and I attended the wedding by ourselves (translation: without kids). We partied like it was 1999 (translation: … [Read more…]

Every Sunday, a Sister is highlighted by another Sister.  Last Sunday, Nancy was highlighted by April.  When Nancy submitted her post about the sister she wanted to highlight, I just had to chuckle really, I wondered how much she paid Nancy to write about her, lol!.  See, the person Nancy chose to … [Read more…]

So it’s Friday and it’s my turn to share with you something food-related.  I could talk about fiber and how good it is for you or I could talk about the benefits of any host of fruits and veggies, BUT I would rather share with you a recipe, because I like to cook and I like to try new recipes and I … [Read more…]

I feel like I have been confessing left and right, lately.  I would really like to say that I have nothing to confess, but then I would be lying and nobody likes a liar.  Anyhoo, it is True Confessions Tuesday here at The Sisterhood- a day for all of us to lay it all out there, to share with our … [Read more…]

Hey guys!  The weekend is here and it’s a holiday weekend which typically means parties, get together’s and for me- too much snacking and not enough drinking of the water kind.  Keep journaling and hopefully, that will help all of us get through the weekend with minimal excess. I am super busy … [Read more…]

Big, deep sigh. True Confessions time.  Again.  I just “confessed” last week, after not “confessing” for a very long time.  What more could I have to say?  Well, there is always more to say and in this case, confess. The good part is that I don’t have to do it alone.  You guys get to confess … [Read more…]

It has been brought to my attention that um, well, we forgot to post a mini-challenge for last week but no one’s counting, right? and that we just might be a tad late for this week.  My bad.  We’ll just chock up my forgetfulness maybe all of us to the post-half marathon blues, the summer crazies and … [Read more…]

I made this salad last Summer when visiting with Christy at her Hill Country abode.  It was deliciously fresh and simple and yummy and all of our children ate it up.  Yes, five children eating salad- it really did happen.  In fact, if I had some strawberries in the house, I would totally be … [Read more…]
