Wednesday Weigh In

I know I know.  After my preachy last post about discipline, I skipped wednesday's post.  Well, Nick was sick, so that kinda took my focus, but here I am to catch up!

A week ago, I posted that I'm having trouble with exercise and laid out a plan to fix it.  Well, let's just say that it didn't work out quite as planned....unfortunately.  I did run (twice) and I still hate it.  Looking forward to the day when I defeat the running demon, but for now, he's in the lead.  I also did some pilates on friday night, and I just about died.  As easy as pilates looks, it IS NOT THAT EASY.  wow.  seriously, I wanted to throw up afterwards!  Which, was only more depressing.

Moving on.

Of course, life has gotten in my way when it comes to being consistent with exercise.  I've been having a really tough time waking up in the morning.  No matter how early I go to bed, it just feels like I can't wake up.  Is anyone else having this problem lately?  It's not typical.  I blame the weather.  {and NO, I'm not pregnant, so don't even ask}

I've also had some real issues with my tense muscles.  Tense doesn't even begin to start.  I'm tense no matter what I do.  I think it's muscle memory at this point.  It's even affecting my sleep.  Does anyone have some tips as how to fight this?  I can't afford a weekly massage.  I think it's a matter of breaking through it slowly on my own, which, at first only makes me more tense, because it hurts to stretch.  Sigh.

I should stop whining.

So, this week, life has disrupted me again.  I've decided I need some real motivation.  not sure quite what that is, but last night, something came to me.  I got out my spring/summer clothes and hung them in the closet.  Then I realized that a lot of my {cutest} clothes don't fit.  Enter sadness.  So, I took a photo of my closet with everything hanging up in it, seen below:

Meet my closet when 99% of the laundry is done {and note this, too, because it doesn't happen often}  WOW! I have lots of cute clothes!

And then I took all the clothes out that don't fit like they should........  

What a sad state of affairs!  I must get skinny so I can wear all my cute clothes, right?  Well, that's my stab at motivating myself this week.

So here goes, 

I took my weight, and measurements, and hopefully next week, they'll change a bit! Yes? Yes.  This is a weigh in, right?

Weight: 135.4 pounds
Biceps: Right: 10.5 inches  Left: 11 inches
Bust: 34 inches
Waist: 28 Inches
Hips/booty: 38 inches
Thighs: Right: 21.5 inches  Left: 21 inches
Calf: Right: 14 inches  Left 14 inches.

And there you have it. Let's see if i can change something in the next week!

  1. Dani, I am in the same predicament only quite a few more pounds than you! I am having the sleep problem too...I have had to just force it. Waking up and jumping straight into the shower has helped. Also getting up and maybe checking emails cause then it turns on my brain. I HATE RUNNING with a passion so I have tried dance videos, you can find them cheap at Target. That way I do exercise but I fool myself with dancing. Well keep up the good work and we will get where we want to be.
