A little Christmas jiggle

It’s funny how much our bodies really take a physical toll from our emotional scars. I’ve noticed lately how much my back hurts, my shoulders, my arms on a Monday morning after carrying Ella around all weekend. How much harder it is to get out of bed just from exhaustion no matter how much sleep […]

All of those memories 

I love Facebook memories for popping up pictures of my babies when they were in fact, babies, and not giants with wild hair and sassy attitudes. But, the last couple of weeks has featured my posts from three years ago-when I was admitted to HRO and living in the hospital to monitor the girls. (Coincidentally, […]

Battle of the Bulge: 21 Fix Update

I cannot believe that it’s been six weeks since I started my first round of the 21 day fix. The time has flown by, and by default,  so has the summer. Soon, it will be September and that’s crazy! What a whirlwind year. I also can’t believe that I’m heading into my third round of […]

Battle of the Bulge: Who wants a Beachbody?

As you know, I’ve been struggling with my jelly belly since the girls were born, but you may not know that I’ve really struggled with my body since childhood. I was always a big kid, and often teased for it. For so long I’ve told myself that I’m just meant to be fat, but I […]

Battle of the Bulge: Month Four Update

So technically, this is more like month four and a half since I missed the update on the 15th with everything going on. I must say, my Weight Watchers journey has been an interesting one this time. My weight has fluctuated up and down at random intervals. I technically only have 3.4 pounds to my […]

Battle of the Bulge Update: Month Three

It’s the third month since rejoining Weight Watchers and the sun is finally coming out, which of course means less clothing very soon (ugh- exposed arms). I lost 2.2 pounds last month and have 5.8 pounds (let’s round to 6) to my pre – twins weight. All of my old pants fit, but there’s definitely […]

Battle of the Bulge Update: Month Two

This month was….interesting.  I didn’t gain any weight but I only lost one pound. One pound in 4 weeks! I blame the firetruck cake leftovers.  Firetrucks are pretty delicious,  I must say. I’ve banned my favourite junk food from the house – when it’s here, I eat it either because I’m bored or tired or […]

Battle of the Bulge Update: Month One

How has it been a month already since I decided to rejoin Weight Watchers?? It’s been a great first month. I’ve lost 9 pounds and have 9 pounds left to my pre – twin weight. Guessing around five pounds to go before I can fit in my “skinny” jeans again. Oh man, I particularly miss […]
