More In 5-4-3-2-1

Posted: August 22, 2011 at 7:05 am

Hello my lovely friends! Did you have yourselves a fun weekend as well where the chance to do some blog reading just did not happen? Oh, how I feel ya! If you’re in my shoes and have the overwhelming temptation to “mark all as read” but don’t want to miss some goodies, let me help ya out for what went down here at least. It’s what friends do.

Whew! It’s kind of exhausting just looking back on all that happened over the past few days. Although I wouldn’t trade a single moment of that fun for some extra shut eye. I can catch up…someday. I do have mommy duty now after all. 😉

To ease back into, well, life I thought it could be fun to do a little round up or survey type of post. I met so many new friends at the conference and want to be sure those new visitors I see hanging out around here (HI!!!!!!) can have a quick way to bond. Feel free to play along in the comments or post your own on your blog for fun. Let’s get started in 5…4…3…2…1

5 Words to Describe Myself

3 Things I’m Most Proud Of Accomplishing


  • Overcoming Binge Eating – While it will never fully disappear, I still feel so empowered knowing how far I have come in my relationship with food. And I will say so proudly because I want others to know they can too!
  • Blogging – I will forever feel thankful for coming across the blogging world and all it has offered me in making me a better person. It has showed me I need to go for my dreams and after this weekend I feel even more revitalized to dream bigger, reach higher, and never settle!
  • Becoming A Mother/Wife – I may have gotten married and had kids a little younger than some, but I couldn’t imagine my life without Peter and my two little monkeys.

2 Favorite Workouts


  • Running (long runs specifically)
  • Strength Training Circuits (feel the burn!)

1 Thing to Expect From My Blog

Truth. Whether it be talking about Body After Baby progress, an emotional eating battle, or, heck, even farting, I will lay it on the line. If you’re new, I hope you stick around and enjoy the ride. We have a good time. And if you’re a long time friend…I have even more in store for you and cannot wait to go there with you via FFF. Let’s par-tay!!!!

Give me one of your answers to the 5-4-3-2-1 survey: 5 Words, 4 Foods, 3 Accomplishments, 2 Workouts, or 1 Blog Fact.
