The Last Ten Pounds

As most of you know, I followed Jillian Michaels’ super strict 30 day challenge in the fall.  I lost just shy of 10 pounds and 18 inches from my whole body.  Not too shabby, right?  I’m right about where I was at my first pre-natal appointment +about 2 pounds – which is 60 pounds from...

Weight Loss Update

After about a month following Jillian Michaels’ weight loss plan, I lost over 9 pounds.  Hurray!  The strict diet and exercise plan really worked and I stuck with it pretty faithfully despite a family reunion and quite a bit of travel.  The problem is, when all was said and done and I went back to...

Dreaming About… Pasta?

The fitness plan continues and I swear, everywhere I turn, something is reminding me of a food I am not allowed to eat right now and shouldn’t want to eat ever- commercials, ads, Facebook statuses, even driving down the road!  McDonald’s breakfast.  Thick, juicy hamburgers.  Onion rings.

Weight Loss Frustrations

It will officially be a month tomorrow since I gave birth to Riley. I really can’t believe it’s been four weeks already – it feels like it was just days ago that we arrived at Northside with our suitcases, ready for baby. Everything has been going well, he’s our sweet angel baby, and we head...
