Slippery Slope

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 […]

2017 Goals

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 […]

Goodbye 2016!

Jen, Delaney and Jason at the beach

Happy New Year!  I am having a killer New Year’s Eve watching my baby sleep on the monitor and FINALLY writing a blog post!  I hope your evening is a little more exciting than mine (but secretly, there is nowhere else I would rather be)!!! Let’s talk about 2016 for a minute. It rocked!  Seriously, […]

August 2016 Update

Jen's School Workouts

Wow!  How did that happen?  August is gone?  Seriously, August was the LONGEST month I think I have ever lived!  SO much happened in August and I can’t believe it is finally over! I started back to school in August…with kids.  I actually started back to work in the end of July.  Crazy, right?  Us […]

You’re Just {Fill in your name here}

Deep Sea Fishing in Destin

Ok so I have been battling some VERY negative talk lately.  Not from others but from myself.  You see, I have gained quite a bit of weight since having Delaney.  My last doctor’s visit I was right around 249 and then after I delivered her, I went down to 225ish.  I joked and said the […]

Six Months…

Imagine Yourself Six Months from Now. Don't Stop. It will be worth it.

Happy July 1st!  I can’t believe I only have three more weeks of summer before I have to go back to work.  I am so loving this summer with this baby: We have gotten into a pretty good routine of sleeping until 8:00, then breakfast, a nap, lunch, a nap, dinner, bath, bottle and bed. […]

Tired, Happy, and Home

Delaney at the beach

I’m back from vacation!  We had a wonderful week in Hilton Head.  I did not stay on the 21DayFix plan while I was gone.  I did try to watch what I ate.  Some days I did better than others but that is life!  Here are a few pics of Delaney’s first trip to the beach! […]

Ready to Rock 39!

Jen's 39th Birthday

I had a birthday yesterday!  The big 3-9!  One more year until the big 4-0!  My mom asked me yesterday, “So, how does it feel to be 39?”  I said, “The same as it felt to be 38!”  I spent the day with this cutie:   Yesterday was a very surreal day for me.  My […]

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 […]
