Weekly Weigh In Weeks 25 & 21 #NSNation


It’s been 25 weeks on Nutrisystem for myself and 21 weeks for Kaytlin. What a wild and crazy week it was here. I had a date meal out with my husband, Easter, roofers pounding over my head for two days, Emma & Ethan at each other’s throats all week… yadda yadda yadda. I’m not going to try to make any excuses. It is what it is… an off week. I tried to be on my best behavior, but I am a stress eater. I was completely stressed out with my … [Read more...]

I Heart (miss) Sleep


Ahhhhh… sleep. i heart you. I have taken you for granted (and I miss you). As a teenager, sleep and I were tight. I’d sleep 10, 12, sometimes 14 hours a night. If my parents would have let me, I probably would have slept all day on the weekends. As a young married college student I’d sleep 10 hours tops (who needs sleep when there’s other important things to do, right? *wink*). Our next stop on our journey was parenthood. I still remember … [Read more...]
