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 […]

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 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 […]

Fatty fat fat fat fatty fatty fat fat

After Braeden was born, I hated the way I looked. None of my clothes fit properly and I hated seeing myself in pictures because of how I looked. After feeling terrible about myself, I joined Weight Watchers and did fabulously; I lost 57 pounds and felt awesome and looked pretty dang good. Then I went […]
