The Year of Changes
2012 is going to be a year of huge life changes for me and my family. I'm 11 weeks away from being done with my BA, I will hopefully be re-joining the workforce, my MIL is moving here from California in 8 months, and the most exciting for me-I m... Read more
So I'm a little slow, but here are the stats and the before pics. Please note, I'm wearing a compression bra so that when I go downstairs and let Jillian kick my ass, the girls don't knock me out.... Stupid f'in jumping jacks......

Week 2 Progress
I must say Week 2 was not as awesome as I had wanted. But considering it was a full moon this week and my uterus was in fact trying to kill me (those two things are very closely related), I can't really complain. I only skipped one day of workin... Read more
Week One Progress
So, for me yesterday was the beginning of week two. Well, it's weigh-in day on Sundays anyhow. The progress so far:
Weight: Down 3 pounds
Measurements: (Disclaimer: Not sure the husband is measuring in the same spots as last week, but he ... Read more
So this past week has really been my first week back into Spark. As such, it's been deemed warm-up week. I've had to remember how to be accountable. I've to to get into the habit of logging in to Spark everyday. I've had to force myself to drink... Read more
I have a confession...
I guess this goes out to the RFM team. I am a step-mom. There, I said it. I don't have biological children of my own...yet. Actually, that's a big part of this journey for me. I don't want to get pregnant with 50-70 pounds of extra weight on to ... Read more
Today was a lazy day. Well, not lazy, sedentary. It was homework day, which involves a whole lot of sitting and reading or typing. It's 9:30, I'm still not done with my reading. I was within my calorie range, but didn't get enough protein again ... Read more
Stoked! Oh, and Day 2
The Rants From Mommyland team has a gazillion new members! Okay, maybe not a gazillion, but it's easier because the number keeps going up! That, my friends, is awesometastic! So excited!
Today was a good day. I had school. Remembered to pac... Read more
So there were some highs and lows today. Ceding to my husband's request for McDonald's for lunch was probably a bad choice. I COULD have just picked up his food and then went home to make myself lunch. But it was 12:30, and I was hungry since I ... Read more
Has it been a year?
So, I don't believe in New Years Resolutions. I get the whole fresh start thing and the resolve to have a better year this year than last. But I think that NYR's are often a source of resentment and stress. I guess as an excuse to take a look at... Read more
Back for real this time?
As with most things in my life, I struggle with routines, accountability, follow through and time management. Weight loss is no exception. But I am really, really tired of being so tired all the time. After tracking my food today for the first t... Read more
Peeking out of my cave....
Coming off a rough six months. But the sun is shining again. Both outside my window and inside my mind. I started school on Monday. A full load of 15 credits. Plus working 20 hours a week, and of course full time mom and wife. School has my brai... Read more
My family has been going through some immense trials the past few months. Due to circumstances beyond our control our life has been turned upside down. This has been the impetus for a very long, hard look in the mirror. In the past there was no ... Read more
So, I'm supposed to hate jeans shopping. I'm most certainly not supposed to look forward to it. But my jeans are TOO BIG! My birthday is in a couple weeks so my mom is taking me shopping today! I'm so excited. Size 14 here I come!

So I've been kinda scarce. But trying to keep my eye on the prize. I've been really busy with some recent life changes, but still watching what I eat and although I've had a hard time getting my exercise in, I am still on my feet at work and vol... Read more
