Yesterday I took a Body Pump class for the first time in quite a while. It's probably been since somewhere near the end of my second trimester of pregnancy. I was worried I would have to start all over again in terms of how much I can lift, but ... Read more

I am up early and DONE with today's 20-minute workout. YEAH!! The LO woke up at 3:30 a.m., which is unusual at this point for her but happens sometimes. I fed her and put her back to sleep. I went back to bed for about 5 minutes, realized I was ... Read more

I think I've mentioned here before that Saturday morning is my gym time. Hubby is home to watch the baby, so it's my opportunity to get a good workout in. I wake up early, feed the baby, watch Ellie at 8:30, then get my workout clothes on and I'... Read more

I meant to blog about this earlier - did you see this week's Biggest Loser? They ran a marathon again!! I'm assuming that this will be a regular end-of-the show ta-da from now on. Or maybe next time they will up the ante to a triathlon? I ... Read more

I hate that word, "but." After being on Spark for a while, I told myself that I would no longer use that word. It's the "buts" that held me back in the past. "I want to work out BUT I'm too tired." "I want to eat better BUT that burger looks so ... Read more

GUM! I always crave sweets in the evening. I want to nip that in the bud, so I decided to try chewing gum instead. I knew that tip already but recently saw them do it on The Biggest Loser and decided, why not? And it works great! I got that new ... Read more

I get Clean Eating magazine, and in one of the issues they asked for readers to contact them if they wanted to be considered for their recipe testing panel. I sent them an e-mail a while back telling them I would be interested, and today they co... Read more

I received Jillian's No More Trouble Zones from Netflix recently and yesterday I popped it in. What an awesome workout! I couldn't do all the exercises because I have a hardwood floor and no mat, but I attempted to do some of the floor exercises... Read more

I have a small bag of clothes that are looking for a new home. But they don't want to leave me! LOL! I had given away most of my bigger clothes but saved a few cropped pants and a top that I thought I could wear during pregnancy including ... Read more
