Fitness Fridays: Denise Wants to Kill Me

Okay, maybe she doesn’t really have it in for me, but it sure does feel like it! I’ve been having a lot of sinus trouble lately, and since I don’t have a doctor here in blessed Hope, I am trying the “housewife, heal thyself” remedy. Basically, it’s prayer,vitamins, prayer, water, rest, some exercise, and more… Continue reading Fitness Fridays: Denise Wants to Kill Me

Fitness Fridays: Balance Is the Key

Last week I jokingly touched on moderation in my Fitness Friday post. All joking aside, I do believe in moderation. I like being real. And I can be real about me. I am not going to be able to never eat a brownie again. I will eat tiramisu at Olive Garden again someday…I hope. I… Continue reading Fitness Fridays: Balance Is the Key

Fitness Fridays: Eat Less, Sweat More

The formula for weight loss isn’t in the latest diet fads. It isn’t in a pill, or drink. It isn’t doing the “crash” diet thing, where you eat cabbage soup and water for “x” number of days.

Fitness Fridays: Moving is a Workout!

I have begun the packing process. I have started going through things for a yard sale, and I have packed up the school room. (Okay, not everything in the school room. My computer is in here!) The first thing I packed yesterday was my stability ball. The kids love rolling around on it, and I… Continue reading Fitness Fridays: Moving is a Workout!

Fitness Fridays: Pros and Cons of Weight Watchers

Today I wanted to share my experience with Weight Watchers. I was a member two different times in my life. The first was right after Mitchell’s birth in 2003, the second after Laci’s birth in 2006. Both times I lost weight. Overall, I give Weight Watchers a big thumbs up. There are a few things… Continue reading Fitness Fridays: Pros and Cons of Weight Watchers
