Some Spin…

… & some Pins.

I have been on spring break all week and I wish I could tell you that I have been relaxing pool/beach side with a fancy beverage and a skinny body, but then I wake up from that dream. It was nice while it lasted.

I do like to continue thinking that I am supposedly the same clothing size as this lovely young lady, but even I find it hard to believe. Hmm, maybe I need to stand in front of more mountains…it must dwarf the body.09-robyn-lawley-sports-illustrated.w245.h368

I can report that I have been a good little (in my mind only) girl by riding my┬árecumbent bike everyday for 5 miles. Honestly, I haven’t noticed a real difference yet, but perhaps I am being too anxious for the clothes to fit the way the way the clothes fit last year. I have been on the scale and the signal must be crossed because the weight is a number that has never existed in my adult life even when I was pregnant….ouch.

Anyway, to cheer myself up I decided to check out Pinterest for some weight loss humor…not because I figure if you can beat ’em, join ’em, but because laughing is always so much better than crying…so here is what I have found.

I feel like I haven’t truly lost my mind yet, but I might be close.

If only…Hubster says I don’t need the beauty sleep or skinny sleep…what a smart and perhaps “lucky” man!


I do fit into my jeans, but truth be told it is a very tight situation…bring on the paint.


This one has actually worked this week.


Socks? I do not step on this unless I am in my birthday suit. Also, I do this solo, no need bringing in witnesses.


Okay Happy Thursday, by the time you are reading this I will be at mile marker 3 and sweating my brains out.

      Uphill and no mountain to stand in front of to minimize my size…oh well, I’ll just keep on spinning although I would rather be Pinning.

    Oh my, I am in the same boat and definitely not allowing any observation of the weighing in process! Maybe I need to try that standing in front of mountains thing! Have a great weekend!

      I think the mountain thing will work…and I would even take a witness to watch the photo shoot…scales not permitted.
