My scale got a beat down

This is what happened between me and my scale this morning.

I'm pretty sure it's defective because I ate SO GOOD all week!!! Like whole platefuls of broccoli and cauliflower for lunch. Every freaking day. No sweets even though I was dying for one.
Friday I ran 7 miles in the morning, ate healthy all day, played soccer that night and I GAINED a pound the next day. For real. 
I didn't let that get me down I kept at it and did good all weekend. Nada. Not even the pound I gained came off.
This would be the point where I would say eff it, BUT I have the best blog buddies and someone offered to keep a food journal with me :) Knowing I have to account for what I'm eating is helping me stay motivated!
I have some other thoughts about what's happening, but that will have to wait for another post sometime this week. 

So WEEKS ago I ordered an abs video and it's been collecting dust since then.  Mama Laughlin was kind enough to give me a kick in the A** when she posted she was starting hers. FIIIINEE I'll open it and do it :)
Can we just say that I'm awesome for posting full on tummy pics? Ugh.

She kept pulling my shorts up, guess she doesn't want to see my stomach either.

Plus whens a better time to get ripped abs then when you are trying to get pregnant??
Oh lord, I just saw the ab workout is 30 minutes long!!! Who the heck does 30 minutes of abs, Jillian, that's who!
I can do this. I can do this. I can do this.


  1. You are awesome. I love how you post the stuff that "normal" people wouldn't post. I'm so excited to see what changes you'll make!

  2. You just have to stay with it M! It's a marathon, not a sprint. :-) You'll do whatever you set your mind to it. Btw, how cute is your house?!?! Can you help me with mine?????

  3. You can do it!!! Let me know how it is!

  4. Way to stick with it and keep positive! I hate the damn scale... sometimes it is more about how great you are feeling than letting the number on the scale get you down. Plus broccoli and cauliflower make you bloated and could be the cause for water retention, so dont worry about it. You look great!!

  5. Good luck with your new adventure. Losing weight is so frustrating, but the rewards pay off! :)

  6. LOL! When I saw the first photo I thought you were smashing a spider!

    You are doing great girl! We all know it's hard. But you're motivating me to do better so keep it up!

  7. Again, FLIPPIN' AMAZING!! You look amazing, front shot and all :) !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. I love it! You and I look we like have a very similar figure and I think you are the perfect weight/size. I've lost 80 so far and have another 35 to go (I'm 170 now). You look much smaller and more toned than I do so I can't wait to keep working hard to get your body haha. I think your stomach looks great, especially after losing weight plus having a baby. It looks a lot better than mine :)

  9. I felt the same way about my scale this morning!!! Good luck, I did the abs and was not a real big fan.

  10. I felt the same way about my scale this morning!!! Good luck, I did the abs and was not a real big fan.

  11. i know that you don't see what i see when i look at these pictures of you. because i see a fit athletic, strong woman.
    but i am glad we can help each other, nonetheless. ;)

  12. I just started the 30 Day Shred today. Holy crap! That is a tough 20 minutes. Especially when I couldn't find my 5 pound weights and decided to just go with the 8 pounders. Mama Laughlin was my inspiration too when I saw her post this morning :)

  13. You can come and break my scale while you are at it. Damn thing...Your arms look awesome in that pic : ) Keep up all of the good work. I'm glad you are staying motivated by logging...eventually I will be back on board. LOL

  14. Go get it girl~ And ditch the scale for awhile. Abs are hard, but i know you're gonna fight hard! Stay focused.

    The food journal is a great idea also. Blogger friends are so great! ;)

  15. Fights with the scale seem to be a hot topic in the blog world. Good luck with your Ripped in 30!

  16. some weeks are simply better then others and sometimes we will never understand. Here's to a better week!

    Happy Monday,

  17. No worries about the scale. It was probably just in a bad mood. Hopefully the next time you and it meet up you'll be friends again. Good luck on the new workout.

  18. Come break mine while you're at it. Or hide it from me for a bit.

    You look great! Can't wait to see what this workout does for you ladies so I can see if I want to add that to my JIllian collection.

  19. You crack me up!! I am currently feeling the same way with the scale. Last month I started fitness bootcamp, and I have lost 2 lbs, but quite a few inches so I shouldnt be too upset. Trying to focus on INCHES not Wt. Hard to do! I love your blog. Thanks for the inspiration!!!!! Youre awesome!

  20. Ha ha! It looks like you showed the scale who is boss! That pound is a pain, but I bet it is already gone (and may have taken some of its friends with it!)

  21. i don't use the scale anymore. i try to measure my fitness in other ways--and let me say i'm not measuring well right now. i'm much less worried about the weight than the flexibility and conditioning. but you can do it. good luck with the abs--and the "yep it's her fault" made me giggle.

  22. Keep up the great work- you seriously look amazing...I wish I was in the shape you are in And had the motivation!!
    (sorry I am just now catching up on my blogging- can you tell with all the comments ha!)


Make my day and leave me a love note!
