Weigh in Wednesday

Pretty Strong Medicine
Still haven't lost weight. I really don't understand it. I realize that I'm gaining muscle and muscle weighs more than fat. But in 6 months...I'm down 4 pounds on a good day. Bogus if you ask me.
I'm trying not to even concern myself with my number though. I should really just stop weighing myself all together. Yep, just decided I'm not weighing myself until July 15.
Some days I feel really good and can see the changes in my body and some days I feel like a fat tub of lard. I'm trying to kick ass this week and the beginning of next week because next Thursday we're going to Lake Geneva, WI for my family reunion! Cannot WAIT to see my mama!!! But anyways...this picture proves that my body is changing!
The past couple of days I've been slacking with eating right. It's not that I eat unhealthy food (except the mac n cheese pizza, and s'more I ate last weekend while we were on vacation.) I eat really healthy 80% of the time. But the past couple of days I haven't been eating enough. So by the time I'm about half way through with my work out I start feeling really shaky and light headed and either can't finish my workout or can't give 100%. Tonight I really thought I might pass out. I came home and drank a protein shake and had half a sweet potato right away while Rayce made turkey burgers. What I need to do is make sure I drink more protein shakes and eat more throughout the day to fuel my body for my workouts. Just shows how important how and what you eat really is!


  1. I did that. I plateaued for months. It will absolutely drive you crazy. Then one morning you wake up and something clicked and you're back to losing.

    I want to invite you to link up with us at the next Motivation Monday. We'd love to have you there.

  2. This is why I think it's a great idea to take progress pics because you can notice the difference in your body a lot more.
    also--maybe try and shoot for 90% of the time? If you think about it, there are 21 main meals in a week (7*3). If you're only eating well 80% of the time, that means you're not doing so hot on like 5 or 6 of those meals. That's two days out of the week!

    1. I never thought of it that way! Thanks!

  3. Your pics show the progress. hopefully the scale will soon.

  4. You will see progress soon, just don't give up!

  5. You are definitely losing inches! You're body is changing, you just don't always see it until you look back. :)
