The results are in!

I’ve been a bit absent ~ I apologize! The past 2 weeks have been busy.  One week I was spending lots of time with the kids during their last week of summer break, and this past week was their first week back!  I imagined that I would have loads of “free” time…and with the girls […]

I made it!

Well today marks the “official” end of the Jillian Michaels Body Revolution for me!  I still can’t believe how fast these last 3 months have gone.   Summer always goes fast, though.  My girls will be back to school in about a week! :(  My oldest keeps telling me that we really should have at least […]

Oh Vacation!

Happy Monday! So last Wed we set out on a mini trip to visit some relatives a day’s drive away.  It was a great trip!  We don’t get down that way nearly enough, so it was fun to see everyone and spend time with them.  My girls were thrilled to drive through downtown Chicago. On […]


Boy my metabolism must be really going.  I thought for sure this was going to be a bad week…a bad weigh in.  And I can fully deal with that.  After all I was the one who missed 3 days of exercise and I was the one who ate a little more snack than I should […]

What is it with pain?

Well I’m happy to report that my back pain has now vanished.  Many thanks to my chiropractor. :)  And while last week was a bust for exercise and fitness, I was very pleased to weigh in on Monday and find myself with zero gained [or lost].  I can live with that! So I got back […]

Week 11 is a bust!

Well what started out as a new, productive week is now a very unproductive week – at least in the area of exercise.  For the past few months I have occasionally been getting back pain in my mid back.  Not always, but often after doing the workouts that work the back.  It seems [feels] to […]

What I eat & a weekly update

Just a quick check in for the end of week 10!  Last week I was bad and I didn’t track my calories AT ALL!  But I did watch what I ate, limited evening snacks, and ate healthy, well portioned meals full of veggies.  The result is a big fat ZERO…as in nothing gained, nothing lost.  […]

Sleep Writing

I don’t know why, but many nights when I lay down for bed I begin to get blog ideas in my head.  Blog posts write themselves as I try to sleep.  Ideas come up and I’ll think “that’s a great topic”.  And then I fall asleep…morning comes and I can’t really remember what I was […]

Done with Phase 2!

Wow…just wow.  I swear it was just yesterday I was posting that I finished Phase 1 of Body Revolution and now I’m done with Phase 2.  I’m happy because that means I’ve made it this far, but sad because it means summer is just FLYING by!  We’ve been having a great summer filled with pool […]

Week 7? Check!

As it always happens in summer, time is flying.  Its the only thing I DON’T like about summer – it goes too fast!  On top of just realizing its July already, we saw school supplies out at Target the other day.  Boooo! :(  We’re trying to slow summer down and enjoy the days, though.  We […]
