About Me

My photo
I am a small town girl living the big city life with my superhero hubby and our superhero- in-training son! I love Jesus and junior mints and have a secret addiction to Neil Diamond and Cat Steven's music. I love a good theme party, the smell of pretty stationary, a good book and a glass of ice tea with an orange slice in it. I am fairly certain that given a cape and a nice tiara, I could save the world.

Wednesday weigh in

Unfortunately, there's not a lot to report here...

I'm up by .2 of a pound but I'm still counting calories, carbs and fat and after working out every single day last week except for one, I really believe that's water weight.  The women out there will believe me and know exactly why it is so.

I'm clearly approaching my plateau which is a little discouraging because I have soooooo many more pounds to go.  Any tips you have on how you have personally battled a plateau and won are greatly welcomed! In the meantime, I will just keep doing what I'm doing and hopefully that number will go down next week!


  1. Girl, you are doing AWESOME!!! Keep fighting the good fight. Remember, you are gaining muscle & you know muscle weighs more than fat. The fact that you are changing your lifestyle is what is most important. Don't lose sight of that. "Diets" don't work for me. In fact, to me the word diet is almost as offensive as some of the worst four-letter words out there!!! Rather, simply making healthy choices works better for me. If I'm really craving something, I don't deprive myself. However, I do limit myself to maybe just a few bites. If I really want ice cream, I'll get some...but I split one scoop with someone else. Those Brownies you showed me--perfection!! But, you know what I mean. If you're craving chips, eat some...but drink water first, eat 3/4 of your sandwich, drink more water, then count out 10 chips or whatever, and eat those with the rest of your sandwich. That's what works for me. Just remember that we're all different, and if you keep going, you WILL find what works for you. You are doing an AMAZING job--Remember that. I'm so proud of you!!!! Keep smiling!! Hugs!

  2. you are doing great!! check out fitnessista.com. she has great fitness plans, menu ideas, even 4 week workout/nutrition combo plans. and she's usually really good about answering questions if you ever have any.

  3. Thanks girls! Wow. I've gotten some really great feedback today and it's evident that I probably need to change up the routine and get it all shaking again. I just.get.lazy. It's all I can do most days to do a workout let alone try something different or actually push myself harder ;) And I've gotten a little lazy about my diet, I have good days and bad days but I have made major major changes and so that is something that I am quite proud of. THANK YOU as always for the encouragement, means a lot that folks take time out of their days to talk to me!
