Helllooo 2015!

Hey fitties!

I hope you guys are still around… somehow, I manage to have a baby who is 10 months old! And as such, I think I can get back to blogging now?

A few things have changed since the baby came along… my priorities are a lot different. She is an unbelievable little firecracker. Most of my day is spent just singing songs, keeping her clean, trying to keep her from eating things she shouldn’t, playing piggy toes, giving kisses, talking to her, listening to her babbles, dancing with her and encouraging her to walk. Somewhere in that, I try to run my business, keep my house from being condemned by the health department and I do a few workouts here and there.

Sometimes it feels frustrating […]

She’s here!

Hey Fitties! It’s been awhile, I know.

I hope you’ll forgive me if I keep my first blog post short and sweet because…

well, she’s just so sweet.

Simone Elise Demeusy, 7 pounds, 3 ounces, 20 inches long. Born March 9th to very proud mama and daddy.

She’s 7 weeks old now and I feel like I’ve got my feet on the ground (okay, one foot on the ground) as a work at home mama. […]

The “What’s Your Excuse?” Controversy

So have you fitties weighed in on the whole shitstorm surrounding this picture?



Maria Kang, a fit mom of 3 cutie pie babies, is taking a lot of heat for this picture. Some people are calling her a body-shamer, some are calling her a bully. Some are defending her and saying the haters need to get the hell over it. But basically, she’s pissed a lot of people off.

It’s interesting that Ms. Kang is a former beauty pageant and fitness competitor who has had problems with an eating disorder in the past. If she’s received treatment for that disorder (and I hope she has), then she surely would know how unhelpful and even dangerous images such as […]

Shit people say…

Hey Fitties! Long time no blog…. I’m entering my second trimester and things are looking good. I’m feeling good, had a little of the all-day nausea, but the nausea seemed particularly bad if I was tired. So some seabands (those acupressure things that push on your wrists) and rest helped a lot.

I was just joking with my husband about shit people say when you’re pregnant. And no, it’s not shit PEOPLE say, it’s shit WOMEN say.

Heads up: It’s about to get REAL.

Imagine this: Your friend gets a job. SUPER excited about this new job.

Would you say this:

“Oh, just wait. Give it a few months and you’ll find out your co-workers are a bunch of jerks.”

“Oh, just wait. You’ll see, your boss is a complete incompetent.”

“Yeah, […]

Project: Pregnant Princess Part II

God's majesty

Hey Fitties!

The pea and I are checking in to fill you guys in on what has happened in the past week. As I write this, I’ve known I’m going to be a mama (mommy? madre? Mamacita? I’ll have to work on the title) for a little over a week.

It went like this: It was way too early to find out if The AntiRat and I had gotten lucky on our first shot of trying for a baby (we had) but I thought I’d take a test anyway. I’d already taken two tests and gotten negatives but on a whim, at 10 pm last Tuesday, I took a third test and immediately saw the […]

Project: Pregnant Princess

Hey Fitties! Long time no blog.

I took that trip to Vegas, did the thing where I hit my goals and wore a sparkly dress and Jimmy Choo shoes that cut up my mother effing feets, had quite a time and.. oh yeah, tried to make a baby. Father’s Day we decided, hey, you wanna think about maybe doing this next year? Cool. Eh, why wait?

Goal accomplisher, that’s my name! 😀

Unfortunately, I couldn’t find much to blog because I’m a blabbermouth and that was something my husband asked me not to blabber.

Anyway, a lot is going to change (I’m already starving and can’t sleep and I’m only 5 minutes pregnant). My fitness thing is about to change (luckily, I’ve got free child care at most of […]
