Warning: If you do not want to hear someone whine or discuss weight loss, fitness or the like you had best jump off my blog right now… Still here? Then proceed at your own risk. For the past two years I have relished cold weather season. R E L I S H E D. Because I love snow? NOPE. Because I cherish the holiday season? NOT EVEN CLOSE. It is because, for the past two years, I have had serious body issues.  I don’t even want to look at a pair of shorts LET ALONE a swimsuit. ((shudder)) I have…

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…

Why is it that I am so busy from an overabundance of work/family obligations that I can’t find time to eat yet don’t manage to loose A STINKING OUNCE? Why is it that I can clean for days to prepare for my in-laws visiting but my mother-in-law can find hours worth of things to clean while she is here? Why is it that my son claims that he brushes his teeth every morning but that his toothbrush is a permanent, hard, cementy mess that wouldn’t even be fit for scouring toilets? Why is it that when I actually have quiet…

I am THE WORST when it comes to drinking water. I just HATE it with a fiery passion. (The one thing I have in common with Oprah, besides reading.) And now, one of the number one things this W.W. diet has me doing is GUZZLIN’ H2O. I spend all of my time in the bathroom these days. Productivity?  Out the window, man. Bodily functions aside, you can’t deny that getting your recommended water intake IS beneficial. Not convinced about its importance?  A little cynical? Fine then. Let me share with you some of the things I have learned about good…

This is the fourth post in a series to focus on Fitness Fridays! (More here…) I’ve found some new fitness inspiration this week. I’m giving myself permission to take BABY STEPS. You see, I can’t run right now. I have some sort of injury which has caused me to lay off the running for awhile. Instead I am focusing on three things: relaxation water consumption high concentration of vegetables & fruits I’m shooting for 9 glasses of water per day, 60% of my diet from veggies & fruits and heavy doses of sleeping in and walking/meditating. I’m even taking an…

I just got back from a weekend holiday at the beach. I learned something about myself there.  I learned that I am… FRUMPY. Sooooo frumpy.  Not just frumpy compared to 20-somethings.  Get real. I wouldn’t even begin that comparison. I mean frumpy compared to other moms of my age and general life status. Seriously, if I don’t turn it around soon then FRUMP might be my destiny. I’m gonna be honest with you – My pants are too tight.  My waist is disappearing.  I need a transformation.  QUICKLY. (If you don’t know me and are looking at the picture on…

This is the second post in a series to focus on Fitness Fridays! (More here…) I’m shocked.  I’ve lost three pounds.  It is a miracle. I’ve been working on adjusting my lifestyle.  The biggest things I have been focusing on lately are water consumption and weight training.  As far as cardio goes, I’ve logged only 6 miles so far this week but, really, I’m still taking it easy after the marathon.  We plan to do a 10 miler on Sunday. My husband and I are once again embarking on the Body for Life Program. Heard of it?  We did it…
