Emotional Rollercoaster + Wednesday Weigh-in

20 Feb

Hang on tight! I’m about to take you for a ride on today’s emotional rollercoaster.


Down:  My alarm went off at 4:00 am.

Up:  I only pushed snooze one time before I decided to get my lazy tail out of bed.

Down: My nose started bleeding during my run because it was so freaking cold outside.

Up:  I finished my mile in a pretty quick time even though Klyde stopped to do the doo twice.

Down:  Jillian taught me that I absolutely hate lunges, and even though I can run for 30 minutes straight, she can make me want to give up after 2 minutes of cardio.

Exercise ecard

Up:  I finished Jillian’s 30 Day Dead Shred for the day.

Down:  My legs are so sore I had to touch the edge of the toilet seat with the heel of my hand to ease myself down.

Up:  It’s because I’m (literally) working my tail off.

Down:  It’s Wednesday and I realized that the major amount of popcorn and homemade peach cobbler I ate Sunday reversed a lot of the exercise I had done all week.

Up:  I still lost one pound.

Down:  I have been working out for a little over a month and I am just back to where I started two years ago.

Motivational Quote Big Star

Stole this from Erin.  Loved it!  Hope she doesn’t mind:)

Up:  I’m down 8 pounds since the end of January and I feel super motivated to keep going!

What kind of ups and downs have you had this week?

I’m linking up with Erin and Alex for Wednesday Weigh-in.  Go check them out.


Thanks for reading,

    For some reason I don’t think my last two comments went through. Your recipe sounded great and I loved the pic of you and B.

      Thank you! It’s hard to get a picture of him cooperating. Action shots are way easier with the little guy. I’m tweaking the recipe a little each day and I’m really finding out what I like. I’m going to try adding some flax seed tomorrow.

    I have a serious love/hate relationship with Jillian. She’s the devil but so darn effective. Have you tried her Ripped in 30? Or Shred it with Weights?

      I’ve only done the 30 Day Shred, but once I start getting burned out on that one I’ll probably try another.
