Where I'm at

I'm tired.

Yesterday kind of sucked. More on that later, though.

It's been a few weeks since I have posted my weight or my motivation, or my fitness inspiration.

We had a few crazy weeks, I suppose. I actually skipped weighing myself for almost three weeks - which is scary that I went that long, and yet I am relieved to confess I have only put on .4 lbs. Woo hoo, right?

Yes, I'm okay with a gain. Because this is what those three weeks have looked like...

Passover. 'Nuff said. Honest. I think I ate more things made with eggs than I have in the entire year of 2012. Maybe include 2011 in that, as well. Whoops.

The great mold debacle of 2012. Missed this story? Check it out here.

My anniversary surprise! More on that later, but if you have had the chance to check out my Instagram shots from a weekend or so ago, you'll know I was in NYC for a few days. That update/post will come eventually. I'm slow. Behind schedule. Yadda yadda yadda.

So seeing that my scale showed 4/10 of a pound in the upward manner, I'm not as devastated as I could be. I'm okay with it. I'm glad I didn't put back about 5 lbs, with the eating and drinking I did in the city. Yeah, I went overboard. But I took it on as a true vacation. I think the amount of walking we did throughout the city (the city = Manhattan, for anyone unsure) helped balance things out. Helped me maintain the way I did. Pretty much any and everything I ate and/or drank was burned off shortly after. Honest. I miss that about the city, but again, that's a whole 'nother post!

Now today I get to explain (briefly, I can't dwell right this second) how this week back was okay, but then yesterday I had a "get thee to the ER incident" and I'm okay, but needless to say, I didn't get my butt moving last night. And it's possible I won't today. But I'll be damned if I'm lax about it tomorrow!

So here are a few pinterest motivational images that come from my Motivate Me! board. I hope they'll kickstart my week and get me to move PAST WEEK FIVE of couch to 5K. I guess we'll see...

You said it, Pinterest.



  1. I'm so sorry your week is going south! I'm with you on the exercise- I skipped Thursday b/c my kid had a fever all day and I wasn't feeling great. Then I was definitely working out last night and tonight... maybe tonight I will- yeah right it's the weekend. But Sunday starts a new week! Let's hope for a better one all around!

  4. I hope you are okay!! :(

    Catch up when you can. I think you should link up with us on Thursdays for the last month of our get fit!challenge. Visit when you're able.

    Enjoy your weekend!

  5. I just came back from the City and am thankful for the walking that it requires.

    Just sharing your pitfalls makes the journey rich and vibrant and real. And will make your triumphs that much sweeter!!!

  6. Hang in there, mama!

    Love the pins and all of that motivation!!

  7. You're doing great!

    Hey, I see Little Bee on your book montage - have you read it yet? I picked it up the other day but haven't started it. I'm reading a really great book though - it's called Boy Still Missing. Soooo loving it!

  8. Hey girl! I hope you are okay. Please take care of yourself :)
    Don't worry about the will take care of itself as long as you put you...first! Love ya!

  9. I love that one about change. So, so important. And good for you for being okay with gain. I think that's part of weight loss, you know? Being okay with change, good or bad, and being motivated to do something about it. I seriously need to get motivated!
