Since I started running and subsequently doing triathlons after having my bum firmly planted on couch for quite a while post-child, I submerged myself into a sort of culture of healthiness. I write about fitness and blog about fitness and have met great friends here online and through triathlon and running groups, it’s been quite a […]

Happy Tuesday everyone! It’s time to confess! And what a good time to do it, for some of us who celebrate, it’s Lent! So confess away! I’ll start it off. I am tracking calories and I’m pretty hardcore about it right now on My Fitness Pal (my username is Christieo_7 if you want to friend […]

In poring over the fact that this weight-loss game is a battle of choices and consistency I thought maybe we could help a sister out. And vice versa. Because it’s not day by day or week by week. This thang is MOMENT BY FREAKIN MOMENT. Which door do I choose? I say that because in […]

Hello, friends! It’s time to wrap up our February project which was to send our bodies into failure! (In a good way!) Did you do it again this week? Have you done it every week? How? How did you feel? Did you want to go back for more? Are you glad you pushed yourself (more […]

(If you’ve filled in the blank already with a word in your mind, keep that, hold onto it, we’ll get to it in a minute. Mkay?) I spend half my life apologizing for myself. I catch myself doing it all the time. I’m going slower than my running partner and I say something like, “I’m […]

Well it’s the end of February which means that this is the last week of  Operation Body Fail where “failure” is actually a good thing! Whaaaa? You haven’t done it yet? You must try it! Go exhaust those muscles, go run that fast mile, go push yourself whatareyawaitingfor???? Haven’t read the post? Catch up right […]

It’s February where the word “fail” is actually a good thing! Yep, Operation Body Fail is in full swing here at the Sisterhood, have you worked on pushing that beautiful body of yours wayyyy outside its boundaries? I have! This week I went into fail first thing Monday morning with pushups and by the way, […]

So last week I might have mentioned that this week was the LAST WEEK of the Power of One Challenge…..well, I was totally wrong. Yeah, I’m big enough to admit that I totally looked at the calendar wrong, and I obviously can’t count unless it involved subtracting numbers I see on the scale…… Anywhooooooo. You […]

Holy MOLY MOLY MOLY MOLY! We’re almost there! Next week is our last weigh-in for this challenge, how are you doing? Well, you know what to do! Head on over to the scale and find out how many numbers that scale is willing to give up for you this week! And we hope the scale’s […]

I wish I could explain how I sent my body into fail mode this week but I tried to picture how I would write it and it sounded a little vulgar. Did you reach body failure this week? For me, this week it was “ab” failure. Ab failure resulting in full body failure. All in […]

Good morning Power of One’ers! It’s that time of the week, the one where we tiptoe over to the scale, gently nudge it so as to not disturb the beast and then ease ourselves onto it so that it gives us a happy, wonderful number in return. So head on over to your scale and […]

This month we’re back to our normal regularly scheduled programming where the projects are monthly and all is right with the world! This one is fun because you can do it this week and use the rest of the month to build on it. It’s also great for those of you who are doing Couch […]

I am standing in center field. The dew of a day that is ending is all around me. The lights are on, it is almost dark. I smell the clay, the wet grass in the field. There is a light breeze. There is a very large man up at bat and I know he is […]
