I’ve been doing my best to make it to the gym at least 3 days a week. I’ve been doing pretty well with sticking to my routine. Some weeks, I even work out 5 days a week. Don’t get it twisted, having two kids and getting to the gym is far from easy. It takes planning, practice and having the right products in place to get me there. I wanted to share with you how I make it to the gym at least 3 times a week with some serious planning and the new Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles.

Diet Diaries: My Mind is Playing Tricks on Me

I wanted to give you guys a progress update on my weight loss.  I ALMOST threw in the towel this week after two months of trying to achieve my weight loss goals.  This week the devil has been busy trying to get me to quit.   After a few weeks of not seeing any movement on the scale and then being sick, I was discouraged.  I kept thinking to myself, it would be so much easier to just let it go and buy new clothes.  I was doing all this work and nothing was changing. What was the point? Continue Reading

Having a baby in my late (late) 30’s has taken a toll on my body.  Not only am I tired all the time, but my snapback game is weak.  I’m working hard than I’ve ever had to in my life to get back to my happy weight.  You know, the weight that lets you fit all the clothes you have hanging in your closet.  I’m not rich so it’s either lose the weight or rock yoga pants for the rest of my life.  I choose the latter.  I wanted to share with you how with the help of Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant, I’ve stepped up my workout routine.
