Slippery Slope

This weight loss thing is a slippery slope.  Have you ever tried to climb up a hill with ice or snow or wet grass?  You get going, very carefully and very methodically and then as soon as you ever so slightly go off balance, WHOOSH!  Down the hill you go. That’s how my weight loss […]

Tragedy Sucks – Weekly Weigh In

January 23, 2017 Weekly Weigh In

I am at a loss for words tonight.  I have actually been sitting here for over 30 minutes wasting time online because I didn’t really know what to call this post or what to even say… Last week was a rough week.  It was probably one of the roughest weeks in my career.  My teacher […]

Quit Doubting – Weekly Weigh In

January 9, 2017 Weekly Weigh In

What an adventurous week I had.  For it to be my first week “on track”, it was kind of weird. I did really well for the whole week until the weekend hit.  And we got ice and a little bit of snow.  And I wanted to eat, eat, eat.  I ate too many Doritos and […]

2017 goals

I told you this year is all about Balance.  One thing I didn’t tell you is this year is all about simplifying my life too!  I think when you need balance, the simpler and more organized your life is, the easier it will be to maintain balance. Delaney’s room is my favorite room in the […]

Beginning 21 Day Fix

21 day fix and shakeology

I gave you a little teaser yesterday about the program I chose.  Clean eating with portion control and exercise.  Many of you guessed I was doing the 21 Day Fix.  Smart cookies!  Wait…no more cookies!  NO COOKIES!  Ok…moving past cookies… For the record, I DID NOT eat any cookies today!  Yeah me!  If you had […]

What’s up Buttercup?

Jen's First Mother's Day

Well, I totally left you hanging in my last post and then…despite my promises, was never to return… Until NOW! Summer is here.  Today was my last day of work and tomorrow starts summer for me.  Before I talk about my summer plans, let me recap the almost 3 months that I have been gone. […]

Where to Begin?

Newborn Photo Shoot Funny Hat

Happy New Year!  I know it’s March but I haven’t “spoken” to you since last year.  WoW!  I won’t apologize.  I can’t.  There is no possible way I could blog and figure out life with a newborn.  I mean, I guess there was a way but it wasn’t happening for me. In fact, I considered […]

Karen’s Weekly Weigh In – August 24 & 31

Karen's Weigh In August 24, 2015

You were probably thinking, “Where’s she been?” School and just life in general has been busy these last two weeks. I am enjoying weighing in on Monday nights at JFit with Jacynta. Even with busy weeks and stress at work, I still managed to do fairly well with my healthy choices. Not perfect but decent. […]
