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 […]

Body Image After Twins: Learning to Love Yourself Again – Twiniversity

I’m excited to share my most recent piece for Twiniversity for so many reasons. I’ve always struggled with how I look, with my body. I’ve always wondered how life would be if I were skinnier or prettier. I’m guessing most of you reading this have wondered the same about some aspect of yourself. I’ve constantly […]

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: 21 Day Fix

I did it! Wait. Let me try again: I DID IT!!! I have officially finished my first ever 21 day fix. And although there were moments where I wanted to throw in the sweat soaked towel, I didn’t.  I did the food plan. I used those teeny containers. (Like, wtf Autumn? We’re not squirrels.) I […]

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 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 […]

Battle of the bulge

I’ve written about my jelly belly several times since the girls have been born. I wish I was one of those women who was like; “Oh! All I did to lose the baby weight and fit into my size zero jeans was breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is the best diet ever!” However, simply put, I am not. […]
