Diary of a Juice Cleanse Failure

Suja Juice 3 Day Cleanse

So if you read my post on Friday, you knew that I was about to embark on a 3 day juice cleanse. It sounded fairly easy, I had even debated starting off with the 5-day cleanse…I had read all these blog reviews of women talking about how much they loved them, how good they felt […]

The Impending Cleanse


I’ve been feeling icky lately…like eating too much processed and fast food icky. Being stressed about selling the house and moving hasn’t helped so I’ve just gone with what was easy and I’m regretting it. But mind over matter!  I’m working my way back to being healthier and following my water trick…and I’m already feeling […]

How Often Do You Floss?

Waterpik Aquarius Professional Water Flosser

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Waterpik. How often do you floss?  Well, if I’m honest with myself…not often enough.  I know, I know…that’s bad, right?  String floss can be a pain (figuratively and literally, lol!) but there is another option:  water flossing!  I’ve known about Waterpik ever since I […]

A Small and Simple Start

Small and Simple Start To Being Healthier - Walk More #lovehealthyme

I wrote this blog post as part of a movement by Weight Watchers to encourage people to remember that loving yourself starts with taking care of your health everyday. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all of my views are 100% my own! Most of you know that over the past week […]

I Have No Follow-Through

healthy reading

I have no follow-through when it comes to working out…and I give up fairly quick on trying to eat better.  There…I said it.  But that’s about to change! I’ve always been envious of those super fit ladies you see running around the neighborhood, you know, the ladies that look amazing in their brightly colored workout […]

Free Online Workouts For Women Who Don’t Have a Lot of Time

Free list of 10 minute or less workouts

I’ve already spent a ton of money on DVD workout programs only to be discouraged by their length of 45 minutes plus.  Now, that might not sound like a long time to some of you…but to me, I never have enough time consecutively to get through one of those workouts!  Either the baby wakes up […]

Let’s Start Juicing!

Fruit and vegetables just waiting to get juiced!

My post from a couple of days ago talked about how I’ve decided I want to start juicing.  After seeing the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead by Joe Cross, I made my husband watch it too.  He was intrigued…and we both decided that juicing was something we wanted to try! I made my purchase […]

Reboot With Juicing?


Lately I’ve been all over the place with researching different ways to lead a healthier lifestyle.  I’ve lost the baby weight, am exactly at my pre-pregnancy weight but I’m not happy with my body and I’m in a rut.  We eat out more than I’d like and I eat more junk food than I want […]

H2 Oh No!

Makes it easy to make sure I'm on top of my water drinking all day!

I hate drinking water….yep, absolutely hate it.  My husband thinks I’m ridiculous… I mean, I like it after I’ve been working out and am super thirsty…but in any other situation water is the last thing I would choose to drink.  I’m ashamed to admit, I didn’t even do a good job drinking the suggested amount […]

Using Pinterest To Get Fit


With the date set for our family photos to be taken quickly approaching, I figured I needed to start doing some more exercises.  And preferably exercises that I could do here and there for 20-30 seconds in between my mom duties.  Sure, I’ve lost all of the baby weight and then some, but nothing is […]
