Wednesday Weigh In – Volume 4: Snow Days


In episode 4 of Wednesday Weigh In, I am talking about snow days. My kids have now had 7 snow days. If you’re not sure what a “snow day” is, it is when the buses are cancelled due to weather. It could be snow, or freezing rain, etc etc.  In the past two weeks my kids have had 4. So…

Wednesday Weigh In – Volume 3: The Fear of What If…


In episode 3 of Wednesday Weigh In, I am talking about the fear of what if. What if I die, what if I fail, what if I look stupid….all these things go through my head when thinking about a variety of things.

Creating a 2017 Vision Board


So in my post last week (Wednesday Weigh In – Volume 1: Happy New Years & Getting Back on Track) I mentioned that I was thinking about creating a vision board for 2017 instead of setting resolutions. Since I’ve set resolutions in the past with no avail, I decided last year to stop setting them and set out with intentions…

Things I ♥ Thursday: footlogix Mousse


Alright, so this week’s “Thing I ♥ Thursday” may seem a bit odd, but given that it is now January, it is cold, the air (at least at my place) is more dry, and my skin is always a tad rougher in the winter, I am loving this product right up! The product I am talking about today is footlogix…

Wednesday Weigh In – Volume 1: Happy New Years & Getting Back on Track


Something I am going to try to do this year is a weekly vlog, (you can check out all my videos here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CrystalLouWhoTube) and I’ve decided to call it “Wednesday Weigh In.” I’m going to try to do one every Wednesday and just “weigh in” on what’s going on with me, with my weight loss journey, if I need to vent, want…

Things I ♥ Thursday: 2016


For the last little while, and the last few days especially, all over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram I keep seeing the same message: buh-bye 2016. Like the year can’t end fast enough for people. Society is ready to write off 2016 and leave it in the past. Which kind of has me laughing to myself.  Laughing because when I sit…

Start the New Years Countdown Early with Netflix


I don’t know about you, but my kids are always excited to celebrate on New Years Eve. As much as they would be totally fine to stay up until midnight to celebrate, they’re not quite at the age yet where they can and not be a grizzly bear the next day! 😉 So I still try to make their New…
