My Morning Routine (and why I need it!)

When my last baby turned one last month, I feel like a timer went off in my head. Time to get your sh*t together, Sarah. Arbitrarily, I gave myself a year after she was born to just make it through. Just keep two kids alive, keep myself alive, sleep when I could- just slog through.Continue reading “My Morning Routine (and why I need it!)”


I know I’m going to sound like my parents right now, but honestly, where has the time gone? I’ve been absent on here for quite a few months but I think it’s time to get rolling again. While I am not going to be posting religiously for the gym anymore, I would like to tryContinue reading “December…..already??”

Week 17 /18: If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…

You know when people say, ” I don’t wanna sound like a b*tch, but…” Well that’s the preface statement to my entire post this week. I profusely apologize to those who have approached me and said I can’t wait to read your blog every Monday or something to that nature. I just couldn’t do itContinue reading “Week 17 /18: If You Can’t Say Anything Nice…”

Week 16- Adjustments Can Be Hard

It’s been 4 months. 4 months of hard work, dedication and 4 months of seeing that hard work pay off on the scale….until this week. I knew it would come at some point. My weigh-in went slightly the wrong way this week. I’m pretty sure everyone thinks that a bad week would be the be-all,Continue reading “Week 16- Adjustments Can Be Hard”

Week 15- Regaining Momentum

You all know what the week after vacation feels like…. That was definitely how I was feeling. It took some mental fortitude to get the wheels churning again in the gym and in the outside world but luckily I got into a nice little rhythm early on in the week. I was super active allContinue reading “Week 15- Regaining Momentum”

Week 14- Vacation

As I write this, we are finishing up our staycation. It’s been a really good week and some much needed time off to spend with my husband, family and friends. But where does working out fall into that mix? Well, I’ll give you a glimpse into how I handled it. When we started vacation, JonContinue reading “Week 14- Vacation”

Week 13- Milestones

If someone tells me, “Yeah, I lost 20 pounds,” my reaction is always holy cannoli, that is truly awesome. It’s an arbitrary number but for some reason, to me, it is significant. I know I haven’t shared much in the way of numbers in these posts and there are many reasons for that. Firstly, ifContinue reading “Week 13- Milestones”

Week 12- Keeping It Fresh

3 months done. Can you believe it? I certainly cannot. Life has certainly changed….for the better. Everything is healthier. Every choice is better, easier to make. This week Jen and I had a certain weight loss goal in mind. It was lofty and we came up short but I still had a really good week.Continue reading “Week 12- Keeping It Fresh”

Week 11- Waiting for the Chips to Fall

I wish this was about waiting for potato chips to fall inside my mouth…..but it’s not. Though if the sky decided to rain chips, I’d ask Mother Nature to make it Sour Cream & Onion. I had two really good weeks for Week 9 & 10. So this week, I wanted to address the elephantContinue reading “Week 11- Waiting for the Chips to Fall”

Week 10- Getting in a Groove

Another week has flown by. I cannot believe we are at Week 10 already. This week was the first week that I felt some fluidity with the entire process. I finally feel as though I have a handle on the diet and I’m slowly learning how to make adjustments when I’m not eating out ofContinue reading “Week 10- Getting in a Groove”
