O’Bummer I’m O’Beast

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Mainly, a job transition took me from one magazine to another preventing the continuance of this blog… at least that’s my excuse.

I’ve skipped two weeks on my blog and weigh-in. Oops! I’ve been so busy with work and my little one that I gave up thinking about it. I guess you can say I have been on a “Get Fit hiatus”! Am I okay with that? No, not unless you call cussing your closet every day … Continue reading

ME LOVE COOKIES!

Back when everybody used their doppelgänger as their Facebook profile picture, I didn’t have to think too hard as to who mine would be.

My seven year old daughter jumps in the kiddy pool, so I close my eyes and drink the sun that’s warming my face. I drift into a light dream of the future, where I’m … Continue reading

Look back, but just for a minute!

Who is that girl in the tight jeans with a drink spilled down the front of her? ME, 33 less pounds ago! I’m going to be honest. I’m embarrassed to admit I gained so much weight. But, I did and I’m very excited that I have finally turned the corner to see that I need … Continue reading
