What is your blogging philosophy?
I write what is important to me,, staying healthy, keeping fit, in a shnarky in your face way!
If you don't have the time for yourself.... here is how!
I have to share this with you….

After I put the kids to sleep my full day of will power and healthy choices slowly erodes and eventually morphs into an out of control woman lying in bed covered in Oreo crumbs which I am desperately try to clean up with my orange Cheeto covered fingers. Needless to say their is no cLean Momma web cam in my bedroom.

I eat so great the entire day, lots of fruit, spinach, high protein, desperately trying to cover all four food groups. Then come 8:30 that food group triangle we all learned in elementary school slowly transforms into a rectangle, one that coincidentally looks like a graham cracker covered with peanut butter and Jelly, hey we all have our weaknesses.

My kids are a sleep and “So you think you could dance” is on. It is being recorded on my DVR so once I kill 30 minutes I can watch this informative and educational program without commercial interruption.

I bust out my bag of pretzels, cream cheese and baby wipes (I learned a lesson from those Cheetos. As much as I was trying to avoid it I did the math on my harmless snack and discovered that I might as well be eating a Big Mac…

(No Joke!)

I finally switched to a healthier snack and I have to say, its sooo fab and really satisfying.

Hear me out before

you judge.

I take a jar of baby food, (sweet pees)… just kidding.

I do this:

I mix low fat ranch salad dressing, (I like Nancy’s kitchen) with balsamic vinegar and and dip a cucumber in it, while

I watch my favorite dancers, (Gotta love Brandon!).

Its really yummy and combines the crunchiness of the cucumber with the saltiness of the salad dressing.


It may not taste like a Big Mac but unless they start selling self esteem in a Happy Meal I will stick to my healthy

Who is this insane woman?

This is not a fairytale. This is how I finally figured out how to get my extra baby weight off, get toned up, get organized, and clean my house, in the most “fantabulously” insane way.

My friends have been dying for me to share my plan… so here it is…and for those of you who don’t know me YET… here is a little about me.

I am a stay-at-home/go-to-work mommy to Sophie (6) and Jack (2). Just like you, I carpool. I homework. I run a hundred errands a day. I cook. I clean. And,… Continue

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
