I forgot how much I loved pilates
It's true. My new pact to myself is that I will do 15 minutes of pilates at least 3 days a week. Last night I was able to do 30 minutes after the kiddo went to sleep, and tonight 15 minutes. I forgot how much I like pilates, how soothing and rel... Read more
Ok, it is time for me to hide the scale in the closer, or something. I stepped on it today, for the last time for the next month, and took my measurements as well. And now, no more scale, no more measuring, for a month.
I'm getting obsessiv... Read more

If you are sick of winter clap your hands
I got in a nice work out today (30 minutes of Billy Blank's Cardio Boot Camp) and it really made me look forward to warmer weathers. Taking hikes, working in the yard, going to the playground, yes please!
As I was punching a... Read more
Oh look...I'm back....sigh
I just can't quit this place, I swear ;)
See, it's like this. I find groups to motivate me to work-out, and then I don't work out (for whatever reason/excuse) and so then I slowly fade into the background and disappear.
Even I'm sick... Read more
I WILL do this
I will, I will, I will.
I have not been this unhappy with my body in a while and that needs to change. When my daughter turned 1, I weighed 146 pounds (unheard of skinny for me), wore size 8 pants, and small shirts.
Now, the Bug is a few... Read more

Why hello, diabetes
Well, not me, but my husband has diabetes.
We learned this about a week and a half ago. He has been experiencing some pretty serious fatigue in the past few months (sleeping 18 hours a day) and then started experiencing some pretty serious ... Read more
I did it!
I did it!
My house is now catalogue ready. I have donated every item that is not needed or loved, every surface is clean of clutter, and laundry is always done.
Ok, maybe not so much. In fact, that toy I just tripped over suggests othe... Read more
Where did I go?
Omg have I been busy! Here are some highlights of the past few weeks.
My baby is 1! We had a blast at her party and did her first professional photoshoot. She refused to smile for the camera but we got some adorable serious shots, as well a... Read more
Cleaning - Week 3
I'm back on track and having a much more productive time. I've been doing little things that make big changes, like hanging up my measuring tools.
It seems silly but having the space right there encourages me to clean them immediately and put... Read more
Cleaning, week 2 -pics
*Now with pics*
Well, this week has not been a good week for me. I have re-written this post in my head about 15 times so I'm just going to word vomit and hope it comes out somewhat understandable.
I'm discouraged. Really discouraged. ... Read more
Cleaning week 1 - part 2 (pics)
I removed the bookcase and am going to hang up the poster (it's been sitting behind the china cabinet forever). My dad is working to build me a three story laundry bin, which will then be labeled "Mom" "Dad" "Bug" and the clean laund... Read more

I haven't had a chance to take pictures yet but here are my reflection on week 1.
I still hate cleaning. Yup, no ifs and or buts about it. But I love the results. It's kind of like working out.
It will take you 5x longer to do any job... Read more

The 70 days of cleaning have begun! I am going to post pics of my house in its current, not-so-clean state and then update as I go. Hopefully at the end of summer my after pics will be drastically different. Some of the less messy rooms will jus... Read more
