My Blah Monday!

I am so BLAH today!

Made it to the gym... worked pretty hard... 30minutes on a weird stair-stepper/elliptical machine...

Pretty sure I gained weight this weekend... I didn't bother weighing this morning... no need to bum myself out!

But, I did slide into my America Eagle jeans without even trying! You know where you have to wiggle, suck it in... and sometimes even lay on the bed to get them to zip? Yea well, NOT TODAY BABY! I was worried they were going to be tough, but it was great to slide them on, button and go...

So yay for the non-scale victory.... I am sure that after going to the bathroom (a la
@ljenator) the scale will be back to normal... that is as much as I am going to say!

Well, this week's goals are:

More water, Less Soda!
No Cheating on my Eating! (Except 1 treat!)
Keep Working Out!
Shooting for 166lbs by the end of the week!

OH! and I placed my order with CSN Stores after winning $150... I bought:
- A 30lb weight vest
-A Fitness Ball (21'')
- An Abs DVD workout
- A 14lb medicine ball with handles

The vest came on Friday and HOLY COW! I got it to remind myself what it feels like to carry an additional 30lbs around (since I've lost 38lbs so far)... it is SO heavy! What was I doing to my body?!?


  1. My husband has one of those weight vests. I am not interested in lugging around the weight I shed - that is why I shed it! LOL Great job with thr non weight victory!

  2. You should be SO proud! And what an awesome non-scale victory too!

  3. Awesome on sliding into those jeans! Keep up the great work!

  4. Way to go with the $150! Great purchases! I love my fitness ball! One of the easiest and best piece of equipment to own!

  5. With all that new fitness equipment, how can you go wrong? Just make sure to use it! XXOO

  6. Wow girl. You are kicking booty, literally. :) I have never tried a weight vest; that sounds like a great idea. I want to hear more about it and you use it in your workouts.

  7. Yea on the jean victory!!

    And I am so glad you ordered your stuff!

  8. Wow what is the 30 pound weight vest for? Watch your knees!
    Sometimes you just gotta take a break from the scale.
    Pants fitting better is always a nice thing! Congrats!

  9. Thank you so much for sharing it.
    Mostly people use the bathroom scales in order to keep track of their body weight and this way they are able to control it perfectly

  10. That is such an awesome victory! Way to go! Sounds like had fun at the gym too. :-) Good luck this week, and I look forward to tweeting with you!


  11. Girl,just buy stretch jeans... that's what I do. That way I always fit! I'm definitely in the same boat right now... trying to lose weight from my pregnancy. (My kid was 10 pounds at birth- does that count as an excuse?) Well keep it up! Kate Moss said it best when she said "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels"... unfortunately for me I love food more than I love being skinny!

  12. Woot woot! Always nice to go "shopping" in your own closet and put on things that haven't fit in a while.

    Congrats and have a great week!
