Two Meatballs: Celebrating the President of The Meatballs Fan Club!!!

Before we celebrate my sweet sister,


hows about a look back over the last year?! Most of our transformation posts are exciting and uplifting and this one just doesn’t feel that way.  I thought about not doing it, but you know that just wouldn’t be us or true to our journey.  WE have to embrace the ups and the downs.  And lets be even more honest…sometimes it’s nice to be reminded sooooo visually that you don’t want to go back to where you started.  This is what I felt like all month…


Last month I obsessively looked at our pictures.  Everything was so pretty…the colors, our outfits…our smaller bodies.  This time felt…heavy, chunky, and I think I found all 11 of my pounds in my back fat. Ugh.  So, here is the 12 month progression.  We are both very much looking forward to the next weigh in and proving to ourselves that we can get back on track and feel really good again! Thanks for the support and love.  We love you that much also!

I’ll go first…




Now, its your turn Jenny!



Now the better together montage!



It really helps me to see where we started.  We both had a bit of a setback this month, but when I look at where we started the pride comes back full force and the motivation we need to get our asses in gear suddenly appears…


But on to more exciting things.  Jenny named Kelly the President of the Meatball Fan Club and I couldn’t agree more.  From day one Kelly has cheered us on…


She has literally commented the most on the blog other than Jenny and I responding to everyone!


She shows up for all of our events and is on almost every single blog I write!



She was the first person to buy a Meatball Nation tank!


And she has even shot 3 of our weighs ins, including this last one.  She was so much fun and always got beautiful shots!



I’m not sure if Kelly has any idea how much we truly appreciate her!  She is so loyal and so supportive and such a champion for us. She has taken Jenny in as another sister and is just as committed to her journey as mine.  She never holds back a compliment and always shares her feelings and passions about our journey.  She is innovative with the shoots and she really cares about our progress.  She is also one of the funnest people on earth and her laugh will change the world.  So how do Two Meatballs thank someone who so tirelessly supports us!?  Well, with food of course.  We took Kelly out to dinner last night at Firebirds.  There was actually a wait so we sat down and Jenny said…you guys haven’t changed a bit since you were kids…which spurred us to do a picstich recreation!




Bahahahahahah!!!  I love it!  Jenny and I are back on paleo #thankgoodness so we ordered some healthy salads…


And laughed the night away.  The great thing about Kelly is she can do it all.  She is hilarious and supportive and caring and she loves diving deep and discussing everything.  She is always down for a good time and an opportunity to get closer.  All of my friends and coworkers love Kelly…and lets be honest…what’s not to love?!


We talked about every single thing on earth and laughed soooooo hard!!!  What a fun night!  Kelly we love you so much.  Thank you will never feel like enough….but thank you soon much for all that you do and for all the love and all the encouragement and all the ideas and your mad picture taking skills and literally everything you sweet baby angel.


To quote myself, if you don’t know Kelly, you are really missing out!


To get to know this gem better, you may enjoy such posts as Two Sisters, Two Very Different Bodies, 1000 Practical Ways to Avoid Cleaning Your Closet, Did You Guys Know That I Have A Sister…,Team Apple Makes Christmas Candy and the list goes on!  Her favorite blog is Two Meatballs: The Voices Inside My Head.  She is so fun and so deep all at the same time…and so flipping game for anything!  Your first friend=your life long best friend!


KELLLLLLLLLY (yelling)….it isn’t even possible for us to love you any more!!!!  Thanks times a mil!

Two Meatballs: How Much Fun Can Two Meatballs Have…A TON!!!!

The wait is finally over!!!  We’ve cleaned up the mess from the weigh in…


And January 3rd has finally arrived and the kickoff to Fleet Feet Sports Raleigh’s Ton of Fun was upon us! If you haven’t heard yet, this is a fantastic initiative started by Fleet Feet Raleigh to unite the community to collectively lose 2000 pounds…together!


You guyyyys, this was our first major event…where we had a booth!!!!!  So exciting and we were so honored that they even wanted us to be a part of it!!!  And we were kind of nervous all at the same time…what will it be like, what should we wear, ugh its raining and cold but we are going to be working out but need to look cute right!?…you know that kind of important stuff! #imablogger  But we put our big girl workout pants on and and packed up our things and headed to the Wade Ave Fleet Feet!


We brought our chalkboard #sosmart, our most stunning before and after pic on a magnet board, our KC Batik #meatballnation tanks, we got little business cards made with all of our social media avenues printed on them #grown,


my kitchen table cloth, two sets of R+Co products to raffle off and our shiny bright attitudes and loud mouths…I’m not sure I realized that we only talk in yells!!!  I mean, somebody look at this booth!


We got put right in front of the sports bras which seemed perfectly fitting (pun intended) and we were instantly distracted by all of the shopping that we wanted to do! #FOCUS


We were joined for the event by all the amazing coaches and fit specialists at Fleet Feet…


Paul from ASICS…


This little cutie, Jenn from Roots…


And the awesome group from Empower Personalized Fitness Raleigh…our next door neighbor booth…


After we set up and met everyone (and took a million pictures haha), we joined the group walk at 10am with coach Mary Ashley whom we instantly fell in love with and lots of lovely ladies!!!  Walking outside is a total foreign concept to us!!!


While we were walking which btw…walking outside is amazeballs…hello nature…we ran into my client Catherine and her husband Harry #smallworld and our good buddy Nikki’s good buddy!!!  I love a small big town!


It was so fun chatting it up with everyone and before you knew it the mile was over!!! #success


As soon as we walked back in I spotted my sweet client Karen…she was signing up for the challenge!!!


And getting fit for new shoes and checking out all the Empower Fitness has to offer!!!



Then I turned around and there was my sweet pal Meg…she also signed up for Ton of Fun and we talked about a paleo dinner night and yoga class for the blog!!! #letsdoit #someonetellLila


And then the entire Puckett clan showed up, signed up, got shoes and worked out! Love y’all!


Our buddy Natalie stopped by and signed up too!!!! #missyou


We had so many visitors and so much support from loved ones!!!


My sister dropped by and sweetly surprised us!!!  Jenny has named her the President of our fan club! Then my super supportive parents came in and my dad even broke his ultra white New Balance obsession by getting a new pair of kicks!!!


#twinning #ilovewhenmyclientsmeetmyfamily

Speaking of new kicks…Paul from ASICS gave us both new shoes…our first corporate swag!!!!!!!! I’ve never been so in love with a colorful pair of shoes before!!!  AND sooooo grateful!


We did not understand what was happening at all and were convinced that we had heard him wrong and that we would be accused of shoplifting haha…he came up and said I want you to try some shoes, give me your sizes.  So he came back and said keep them!  And we were like, and then give them back?!? Like test them out in this class and then return them!?!…it seemed too good to be true.  We asked him to confirm a thousand times that he meant that these awesome new ASICS were living with us forever…AND THEY WERE! Ugh, thank you soooo much! #ASICSfanforlife

Then the ladies of Fleet Feet fit us for a new sports bra that they wanted us to test out…swag number two of the day!!! Ahhhhhhhh, everyone is so kind and y’all are really helping us get fit…in style!!! #icantstopbeingcheesy




Then the raffles began!!!  Karen won a month of free classes at Empower and a pair of socks from ASICS…best day ever!


Sweet Sue won our prize!


Sue came in with her friend Petra and told us an awesome story about how they met! #hiphopdancingbesties


We joined these awesome ladies and our new pal Yolonda for a noon workout class with Empower!  This class was no joke!  Here is the before of our group!


Let me just say, it was freezing and raining…and we were working out in the most crowded parking lot in Raleigh…talk about outside of your comfort zone…but when at a Ton of Fun…


We did a self paced three round circuit.  The first round you did each exercise 20 times, then 10 times and then finally 5!  This was sooo hard…but the music was great and Tiffany walked us through the exercises!


Then we warmed up…#grapevine


And the competition began…whoever finishes first wins a water bottle!


Jenny got first and I came in second!!!  We have come soooo far!


It was so fun participating in all the events and getting to know everyone.  We are actually participating in the challenge to lose a ton of weight!!!  So we both signed up and got weighed in!



And wrote down our goals for the next 12 weeks!


Ok now it’s time to hydrate from these ass kicking workouts! Time to visit Mary Ashley’s booth!



All of the sudden it was almost 2 and the day was winding down. You guyyys…sooooo many people showed up!  I think in store they had 40 people sign up for the challenge.  We met some incredible people and got to work with some really awesome folks.  It is hard not to feel inspired to get fit and lose a ton of weight when you are surrounded by so many fitness advocates.  It was also really cool to play both sides of the fence here.  On one hand we were here to share our story and show that anyone can save their own lives and find their path to fit and to remind people that getting healthy takes a village.  On the other hand we are literally participants in this challenge bc we are both still overweight and wanting another layer of community and accountability. The class and walk were amazing.  Meeting so many people who are on the same journey and encountering the same post holiday struggles as we are was incredibly bonding.  And to everyone that we know who came out to support us and this amazing program…we love y’all so much!!!  Honestly it really means the world.  And to everyone that we got to meet and had the pleasure of working with, being inspired by and working out with…we are so glad to add you to our circle of workout buddies and accountability partners.  Jacob, Carrie and Natalie, Carter and everyone else at Fleet Feet, thank you so much for welcoming and embracing two loud, childlike nuts.  This was a blast…it was literally a Ton of Fun!!! If you didn’t get a chance to come out, there is still time to sign up!

Two Meatballs: A Sea of Thank You’s!!!

With Thanksgiving coming up these Meatballs have so much to be thankful for. First off let me say thank you so much for the birthday wishes, flowers, cards, paleo desserts, mixed cd’s #thankskelly, gifts and facebook love!!!  It really was the living best day of life! Being thankful has really become a theme for us over the past couple of weeks and I love it.  Life is so much easier and perspective is so different if you live in a constant attempted state of grateful.  With this theme in mind we wanted to continue thanking our weigh in photo shooters!  So tonight was Cara Dempsey night at our most favorite place on earth Coquette. Cara said fries were her weakness so what better place to go! Right away we ran into some of my favorite clients… the Wicklines!!!  Shout out to Jen, Ryan and the fam!!!


We had the best conversations and sooo many laughs!!! We talked families, fierce conversations, exercise, holidays, what to do for the next shoot and even budgets.  It has been so nice getting to know Cara better!!!  We ordered three  entrees and shared them…our favorite!!!  Jenny got Beef Bourguignon…#imablogger


Dempsey got the Scallops…


And shocker I got the Steak Frites…


WE all avoided the yummy bread at all cost!!!



Everything was amazing and we mapped out a plan for the weigh in shoot!!!  So exciting.  You guys, it was so f-ing cold outside that we decided to go get a Starbucks treat!!!  But the walk there was brutal! Why is it winter already?! #babycold


This will warm us upppp!!!


Cara thanks so much for helping us out!!!  We can’t wait to work with you again! Xoxo


Our next segment is a little get to know you sesh with our dear buddy Sandra!!!  She has been so incredibly instrumental in our journey to fitness and wellness.  She has taught us how to take care of ourselves physically and believed we were capable of more than we ever thought possible.  It feels so nice to feel strong!  Talk about empowering!  So we want for you to get to know our amazing trainer a little bit better!!!  I mean look at her…why are you not already seeing this woman!

1. How and when did you find fitness?

I was a dedicated athlete in high school and active during college, but I struggled to find a place for fitness after college when I entered the workforce. Plagued by unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits, my weight spiraled out of control. I hit my breaking point when the scale reached 160 lbs and my 5’2” frame was wearing a size 14. Fortunately, I found my way back to a healthy weight through healthy eating and exercise. I exercise because I love what it does to my body both physically and mentally. Proper nutrition affects the way you feel throughout the day and gives you the energy you need to get through that workout. I can truly say that I FEEL better today than when I was in my early 20’s.

2. What was your biggest weight struggle in the past?

My weight spiraled out of control when I was in my late 20s due to unhealthy eating and lifestyle habits. For years, I always found it a struggle to find a “diet” that would work for me and become a lifestyle. Today, I follow a very clean diet eating lots of proteins, vegetables, fruit and nuts. I stay away from processed foods, grains, and I try my hardest to avoid gluten. This past year, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s disease, and I’ve been struggling with the fact that I’ve actually gained weight despite the clean eating. It is certainly a mental struggle but I’m going to keep pushing hard and continue eating clean because I truly feel better eating this way.
Then & Now
3. How do you set yourself up for success?

Three things: 1) Surround yourself with positive influences and those that reflect who you want to be and how you want to feel. 2) Plan Ahead. Portion out your proteins and healthy snacks and prep your veggies, salads, and fruit ahead of time so you don’t get tempted when you are hungry. 3) Make your workouts an appointment on your calendar. If you don’t make it a priority, it will get pushed further into the day and sometimes never get done.

4) How have your recent health issues affected your journey?

We are all on our own journey to good health. I eat clean and exercise so that I can feel strong, have energy and feel well. Unfortunately, in the past year, I became excessively tired, irritable, moody, anxious and even depressed on occasion. To make matters worse, I was gaining weight despite eating a clean diet and training consistently. It was determined that my thyroid gland was underactive (Hashimotos disease) and that I have high levels of metals, particularly mercury and lead, in my system. These metals are blocking my thyroid gland from making hormones and getting my metabolism going.

To address this issue, I now follow a strict Paleo-type diet. It has actually made me more disciplined because I hit a breaking point where I was just so tired of feeling bad. To be honest, I actually enjoy eating this healthy and cannot see me ever going back to how I used to eat before. While my weight is still an issue, I have to keep reminding myself that I am human too. Just because I am a trainer, sometimes there are outside factors interfere with your fitness journey. You can’t let them get in the way of your overall goal. I know I will overcome this. I am too strong to give up now. is her website and (919) 601-3140 is the best way to contact her.  If you are struggling to find the motivation to work out or you simply just don’t know how, call Sandra.  She will literally change/save your life and do it all with a smile!  We love you more than you’ll ever know Sandy!  Now, onto the ass kicker and the most exciting news the meatballs have had to date!  You guys…thanks to our blogging buddy Melinda…WE ARE GOING TO BE ON WRAL FOR A SEGMENT WITH BILL LESLIE! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH…I mean could this week get any better!?  He is coming to the salon to interview us on Monday morning but today they sent a super awesome camera man, Tom Normanly to shoot us working out with Sandra!  And boy did she give it to us today!


Tom was so fun and you could see him shimmying to the music that was blasting over the speakers.  He told us after he got his shots that he was on his own journey and had just lost 100 pounds!!!  Incredible Tom!!!!  We are always amazed at how universal this struggle is and it’s so inspiring to meet other people in the same journey!  Xoxo Tom!  We don’t know when the segment is going to air but as soon as we do we will post it!!! Now like I said Sandra really upped the anty today!  So here is a montage sans words bc I think I blacked out for most of this!


I’m sweating just looking over it again…and we did all of this for two rounds!!!!  Then we died!  Jk…then we jackassed around!


Best day ever…we’ll keep you posted on our first tv appearance!!!  Love y’all and thank y’all so much!

Ok so here it is…….. I lost 3lbs.  My smallest weight lost to date.  I’m feeling a little bitter over it.  I know I worked hard. I’ve been eating all the right things.  What happened?!?!?!?!  It must be that tight ass I have developed, Nothing but  pure muscle……am I right ladies?!?!   Physically I feel great.  I have to keep on chugging along. My vision is still strong, and I know I must keep on.  So here I go, ready to start this next month, Happy August you guys!  As always thank you for all the support!!!!

Two Meatballs: Fireworks, F@%$ Ups and a Fat Crushing Workout!!!

First off….HAPPY 4TH OF JULY!!!! #merica We hope your weekend is full of sparklers, fireworks, bodies of water, cookouts, family and friends.


#kelseyisthecutestever #butsooooisdustin #salonpatriotism#mericanails #leeisthebest

This weigh in felt epic! We hit 20,000 views on Facebook for Two Meatballs: Grin and Bare it!!!


Holy shit!!!  We feel great, we are getting a million compliments and together we’ve lost almost 100 pounds!!!


So what have we done…gotten cocky and started getting a little slack! NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! I did better on vacation than I have this week…who does that?!!  Jenny and I made a pact on Tuesday morning to give up our personal vices for one week.  She said goodbye to dark chocolate and I said adios to pistachios (NOOOOOOOOO)!!!


Thank you Nikki and Jack for the immersion therapy! #canyoutelljackiseatingpistachioandnikkiiseatingdarkchocolate #masicsm

So we started this month with great intentions.  Then we posted the weigh in and the praise and compliments came pouring in (thank y’all so much) and that little voice in the back of our heads (not blue cross blue shield) said….YOU’VE ARRIVED!.  Surely we must be done right?!  We look great, we  feel great…time to eat! We went to Ale House Wednesday night to celebrate..again with great intentions…what’s more Paleo than WINGS!? But then I ordered onion straws and we both ate our weight in bleu cheese. Woooooooof… We felt so awful when we left…I felt stuffy and like I had a cold and we both felt hungover and can you say BLOATED.  What a way to celebrate right!?  Lesson learned.   BUUUUUUT then I met up with some girlfriends last night that I hadn’t seen in a million years and we went to Coquette. Love you Robyn and Ellen!!!


Let me say…Coquette had some really great options…there was a pan seared duck breast and even my fav…scallops!  But do you know what I ordered!?!?!?  STEAK FRITES!  For those of you like my sister that struggle with French (#haricotvertshahahahahahahaha) its steak and FRIES!  Like French fries you guyssss…white potato, fried shoestring French fries.  And I know French so this wasn’t like oh whooopsies…I didn’t know what frites were!  But they were delish and it happened.  So then I woke up the next morning before our work out with our super best buddy Sandra Axman ( caaaaaaaaaallllllll her!) and adorably hopped on my scale as if I were going to see a loss and you are never going to even believe this shit y’all….I GAINED 3 POUNDS. Duhhhhhhhhhhh Sara!  Anyways I got dressed and went downstairs and sweet Jenny picked me up!  And she was in a mood…a mood that much reflected how I was feeling.  Neither one of us felt like exercising, we were both being bitchy and super irritated…it’s the craziest thing when you stray from what works how quickly your mind goes to fuck it mode. Sooooo we had a little counseling sesh on the drive to the gym.  We both have been too slack…eating too much, eating out, not eating the right things, not getting enough sleep, being slack with water and for me skipping my normal workouts.  She said I’m going to use all this anger in our workout today…#genius!  A workout was just what the doctor ordered.  How can you be mad when you are so physically exhausted and so proud of what you just accomplished!?  And by the by…Sandra you are the greatest human…thank you for forcing us out of our funk and always being so encouraging, positive and energetic.  You are a ray of sunshine that both of us desperately needed this morning and your commitment to our journey and end result is something that we are so grateful for!!!!!!!  We love you to the moon and back.  On to the workout…these first few pics we were still deep into bitch mode.


But we half heartedly tried to get over it!


But we really just wanted to go back to sleeeeep!


We went inside and the tom foolery began…lets be honest nothing makes us feel better than acting like children!


Then Sandra asked the question that we have heard 1,000 times this week…”have you guys been measuring?”  Nooooooo we are idiots!  Why didn’t we measure …that would be an awesome way to track progress!  So we started today! We also got our BMI and some other important number using a Gameboy like hand held device


Aaaaand now on to the workout for real!  This was both of our favorite workout ever!!! It was HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) and we did Tabata which involves doing a particular exercise at high intensity for 20 seconds followed by 10 seconds of rest.  It’s repeated 8 times for a total time of 4 minutes! (Explanation courtesy of Sandra)  First we did the dumbest cardio ever(this is Sara speaking…I hated this damn band)…it involved a small thick band that went around our ankles  and then you stepped up and over a step aerobic step (#howmanytimescanyousaystepinonesentence) and we did a Tabata here.


Take a closer look at why I hated these…my poor fat ankles…my cankles/calves got eaten by rubber!


Then there were two stations both with two different exercises each. The back station you were kneeling on a BOSU ball doing reverse chest press (pull down) And at the chest station you did a  chest press on a bench and we did these for 8 rounds…


Then we did the second exercise at our stations.  At the back station you switched to standing trx rows and at the chest station you switched to chest fly’s!


Then we got onto our mats and did Tabata ab work…with two different exercises working two different areas.  First was upper abs with crunches for 8 rounds then lower abs with leg crunches (laying flat and bringing your bent legs to your chest and then extending them back out) for 8 rounds. (There were no pics of this so we recreated this at work! #yourwelcome #mybackissoooohairynow)



Then we did a cardio thing back on the step with one leg stationary with the other leg being brought up with the knee bent and tapping the ground and bringing it back up again for 8 rounds…holy burn batman.


Then we switched stations and whoever did back went to chest and vicey versey!

Did you breath a sigh of relief and think that we were too but WRONG! haha

Next was two different stations one for biceps and the other for triceps.

At the bicep station we did bicep curls while sitting on an exercise ball to engage our core!  At the tricep station we had a stretchy thingy with two handles attached to an elliptical machine for stability and we had to do tricep extensions (Huge shout out to Michael for helping me figure out workout jargon…he is not responsible for the dumb shit I make up but for the correct terminology!)


Then before we switched stations we did a cardio/quad blaster back on the aerobic step. You start with your right foot fixed to one spot on the step and then do speed skaters for 8 rounds. After each round you alternate the leg that is stationary.


Then we switched bicep and tricep stations…


Annnnnd that was all she wrote!  This workout felt ahhhh-mazing!  Then we had to jackass around again!


And do a little homage to sweet dead Fat back Friday!


We just can’t keep our clothes on now!  But look how much smaller!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

And finally Sandra (yelling this) WE LOVE YOU SO MUCH!  To everyone reading this…if you are struggling to find the motivation to work out of just don’t know what you are supposed to do, this woman will educate and inspire you and help you get to your goal 1 squat at a time! Look at the difference she has made in our lives!?!?


She is LITERALLY the living best!




Enjoy your holiday weekend!!! XOXOXOXOOXOXOXOOXO!
