Post 2 in the Resolution Report series This weekly report is my accountability to the world as well as a way to help others stay motivated on their own journey to fitness or ahem, a bikini body. I’ll share what I am learning along the way in the tips, techniques, resources & trends section of the posts. Before I give you some actionable ideas, let me just report that I have lost four pounds in three weeks. YAY! Now, the critic in me thinks I should have lost at least six but hey, I’ll take it!  I’m trying train my…

I spent my lunch hour today getting my hair dyed red, blonde and pink. Yes, PINK. The pink thing has been a joke for the past three years of my life. I’ve been threatening to do it forever. Why in the world would a 39 year old woman like myself dye her hair pink? Because, quite simply, she should have done it years ago. She should have embraced her inner child, not denied her personality and gone out on a limb to do something that made her smile. She shouldn’t have listened to that voice inside that made her doubt…

Ridiculous. For once I am on McDonald’s side. Why in the world would I side with every mother’s culinary nemesis?

When you experience a really difficult run it shakes your confidence.  I left that day with one thought in my mind, “If I can’t do 14 miles, how in the heck will I be able to do 26?” Which, of course, only made me buckle down and try harder.  Because I refuse to feel like that come marathon day. If there…

It is finally here.  The day I have been dreading.  The day where I officially become the “un-cool mom.”  The day where I admit to the world that I JUST DON’T GET IT! What don’t I get, you ask? AHEM – Silly Bandz My kids are nuts for them. My take:  If you collect Silly Bandz they can cost a trillion dollars, schools are banning them and they break when you look at them sideways.  Which, of course, hasn’t stopped them from being the ultimate cool thing.  Or me from buying them for the kids. It is an amazing thing, these…
