No Need to Hibernate

Workouts 4 wine week 2

  It's week 6 and we can't believe it is almost the end of the Mamavation Mom Graduate campaign!  Last time Meagan and I were in a campaign together it was warm (extremely hot) outside.  This allowed for plenty of outdoor activities for us and our families.  Winter on the other hand means we are indoors more often.  Yes, even we are tempted … [Read more...]

Hello To A New Me!

This is what I am fighting for! This is why I need to get healthy & stay around for a long time!

I am welcoming week 6 and excited for all of the progress that I have made it thru another week and have had another loss this week, even with Thanksgiving before my weigh in! This Thanksgiving was very different then any previous others or any other holiday meals in the past. Before, I either went & someone else had cooked or I had made … [Read more...]

Fa-La-La-La-La Losing it


Something about the first cold snap of the year leaves me craving "comfort foods" and cozy sweatpants while I curl up with a good movie or book.  Am I the only one?

Standing On My Own

A sneak peak of the new me! Taken before heading to the gym!

It has been a long week and with it came a lot of change. I am not a team of 1, and so from now until the end of the graduate campaign you will be reading posts and watching videos on my week, and the up's & downs of it all. This week has taken some getting used to. Due to my seizures I had to surrender my drivers license and can't drive again … [Read more...]

Happy Thanksgiving from the Pony Girls!


The holidays are upon us and it seems that this campaign - and this year - have FLOWN by.  Fast. And with the holidays, we are often steeped in traditions, family, food... and stress.  It's always that way it seems - stress about finances or family or just life in general. Stress can ALSO be a huge deterrent to weight loss efforts.  Did you … [Read more...]

Screen Shot 2012-03-28 at 4.27.12 PM

Last time we tried talking about menopause, technology wasn't on our side; but we felt that it is very important for us to learn early symptoms of menopause and what to do about it. Our community members are in different stages of their lives.  We really hope that the information from our guest will give you something to think about. We don't … [Read more...]

Kick, Punch, Sweat, Repeat

Workouts 4 wine week 2

We are half way through the campaign.  The wine is so close we can almost taste it.  Just a few more weeks and after all the kicking, punching and sweating to Tae Bo will pay off.  Meagan and I will finally have our wine again and be down several more pounds. Tae Bo is a blast from the past for me.  Thirteen years ago my best friend and I … [Read more...]

With Thanksgiving around the corner, are you concerned how to continue eating healthy in November? Traditional Thanksgiving dinner is not the healthiest holiday of the year. I recently worked on the Thanksgiving feast photoshoot and was shocked to see absolutely no good healthy food on the photo scene. I hope that your holiday dinners have plenty … [Read more...]
