Hello out there!

Can anyone hear me?
Or did everyone leave?

I have been officially the worst blogger ever. Sorry for my absence. I have still been reading all of your blogs... I just haven't been writing much. 

I'm tired. I can hardly keep my eyes open.
All. Day. Long.

So usually it takes all my energy just to be a mom and be awake. So blogging hasn't really been on my brain a lot. 

But I felt like I needed to update before I lost all my followers! 

Life in the Scott household has been wonderfully exciting and boring. My days consist of just keeping my eyes open and then when Jonathan gets home I have to muster up the energy to go to the gym. I always feel better after I go but I have zero energy. So group fitness classes where someone is yelling at me are better. I've mostly been doing RPM but I plan to go to Body Pump tomorrow morning. I have missed that class so I'm really excited. 

And tomorrow we have a date night where we drop Hazel off at the gym and then get to go eat or whatever we want to do. I'm excited about it but I really just want to sleep. So, as you can tell from this post I have been A LOT of fun lately. THIS is why I haven't been blogging. (Because I would bore you all to tears.)

I promise my post will be more exciting very soon.

Finish the Sentence


1. I laughed so hard I cried when... I watched Ellen. The last minute-ish is the best. I was crying last night. She is my big time girl crush. 

2. My high school... was a little private school. I thought I was much cooler than I actually was. 
3. It really pisses me off... when people get all up in my businazz and tell me what I should/shouldn't do. And also when I am out of Nutella.
4. In 10 years... I want to be retired. What? People don't retire at 34?
5. If I could erase one thing... It would be my name off this mortgage. We got this house for really cheap, it's a great, quiet neighborhood... So I shouldn't complain. But I just really want a fenced in back yard for Hazel and Callie to play in. 
6. In 1999... I was getting ready for Y2K. What? Your parents didn't make you fill old milk jugs with water and keep them in the basement? Well, at least we were prepared. 
7. Honestly... I am over everyone being so over-opinionated. 
Why is it that when you are going to a life-transition everyone and their grandmother think they can add their unasked 2 cents in?
8. To me, sushi... is a gift from the gods. I could eat it for lunch and dinner 7 days a week. Spicy Tuna, please!
9. Someone really needs to invent... a battery powered rocking chair so that when I'm up at 4 AM rocking Hazel we can both sleep. 
10. The first time I drank alcohol... I was in high school. I went to a sleep over with like 4 other girls and we brought 2 6 packs of Smirnoff. I am pretty sure the other girls each had one and I housed the rest. That shiz is FULL of sugar and I ended up with my head in the toilet. It was awful and I haven't touched that nasty stuff since. 
11. The one question I would ask God is... will Callie really be in Heaven? I might be obsessed with my dog. 
12. Lindsey Lohan... needs to get her shit together. 

Weigh In Wednesday Week 15


Sorry I'm a day late! 

I had a sick husband home yesterday with what I had on Sunday. Knowing how awful it was I felt terrible for him. 
THANK GOODNESS it was a stomach bug and only lasted about 12 hours. 

Since I couldn't keep anything down on Sunday and barely ate because I was being so cautious on Monday, I knew I had lost weight. 

Starting Weight: 230.4
Last Week: 213.2
Today: 211.4

I know it'll come back and I only lost it because of the bug, but that's what the scale read Wednesday morning so that's what I'm documenting. 

I have been doing well on my workouts and eating! Saturday I did a full-body workout that I basically made up and I was SORE on Sunday (great combo with being sick.) And then I took Sunday and Monday off and did RPM on Tuesday. I took yesterday off and tonight I will go to RPM again. I'm going to try to keep up  something that I saw on Biggest Loser. Bob was wearing a T-shirt that said "3 days on, 1 Day off, 365 Days". I thought that was a great, do-able concept and I'm going to start. That way my body won't get too burnt out and I'll have a schedule. 

I hope you all lost weight this week! 

Oh and sorry for being the worst blogger in the world. I actually have been blogging, just can't publish them yet. So hang in there and I will be back full force on Monday! :) 

Have a GREAT weekend.

Wait.... it's my birthday?

Yesterday, I was sick all day. Literally. I couldn't move off the sofa, looking at the TV or phone made me feel sick. It was awful. Thankfully I think it was a bug. I am not feeling 100% today but I feel a lot better than yesterday. I can sit up. So that's a plus. 

With all the sickness, I totally forgot that today is my birthday! I have not planned or even thought about it with all the excitement going on. 

Today I am 24 years old. That just seems weird to me. In my head I'm still 21. When people ask how old I am, my first instinct is to say 21.

We don't have any big plans or anything today. I will be happy if I make it through the day without throwing up (yesterday I couldn't make it an hour). 

Monday birthday's are no fun!

Weigh In Wednesday. Week 14


This will be my last weigh-in Wednesday.

I don't want ya'll to think I'm whimping out. I'm definitely not. I have a very good reason as to why I'm not going to weigh myself anymore. Well except at the doctor.

If you've been reading my blog for a while and can put two and two together then you've probably guessed it. 

Check back later in a couple weeks to see if you guessed right. 

ANYWAY. Enough with the vagueness.

I've been working my butt off! My goal is 5 days a week at the gym. I did have to up my calories but plan to still count them.

I couldn't be more thrilled to be back in RPM and I'm looking forward to getting back into Body Pump. 

Starting Weight (1.2.2013): 230.4
Last week (4.3.2013): 216.4
Today (4.10.2013): 213.2


Lost what I had gained last week. I'll take it. I feel stronger, tighter, and less flabby and that is really all I want. 

Sure, I'd love to watch the scale go down even more. But for right now I'm happy with my body and more importantly MY LIFE. 

First pic was June 2012 and the second was March 2013. I've come a long way!

My goal's for this weekend are to have a healthy, active weekend. Tomorrow we are going to go hike and then to check out some new houses.

So prays are appreciated that we can fix up our house, sell it for a profit, and then build our next house!

Weigh In Wednesday Week 13


I wasn't going to post today. I was going to skip it and curl into a ball and cry.

On Monday I weighed myself and it was 214.2.... I was bummed, but I knew I probably earned that from my eating crappy all weekend. So on Monday I started getting back on track and I've been eating well. I've done this before. I'll weigh on Monday and it's bad so I kick butt and usually lose at least a pound before Wednesday. Well NOT today.

Starting Weight: 230.4
Last Week: 213.0
Today: 216.4


Let me start by saying that while I was hurt and couldn't exercise, I was still losing weight but I felt flabby and gross. Since being back at the gym for a week and a half I feel more firm, more toned. My hypothesis is while I was injured and "losing" what I was really losing was all the muscle I had gained through Body Pump and RPM. I was gaining fat and losing muscle. Now it's the opposite but I still have the fat that I had gained while I was injured. That's seriously the only explanation. I've eating like crap on the weekend but NOT 3.4 pounds worth. Especially when I weighed 214.2 on Monday. I know I haven't gained FAT since then, but I have probably gained muscle.

I'm going to keep doing what I'm doing and hopefully it will even out next week. I'm mad and disappointed but I'm NOT giving up. Also, it's about to be shark week so my hormones might be being crazy. I don't know. But I FEEL firmer and less flabby than I did a week and a half ago, but I weigh like 4 pounds more.

Anyway, hope ya'll had a good week

Falling Off The Wagon

These past two weekends have been hard for me eating wise. Last weekend, we helped friends move on Saturday so we were not home all day which means eating out, which means bad choices. I can't resist. I'm like a drug addict. It's gross. 

This past weekend (Easter weekend), we had Hazel's birthday party on Saturday which means hot dogs and hamburgers followed by the most amazing Strawberry Cake that I've ever tasted. The next day was Sunday so that means candy.
I have been beating myself up over it. I knew I did bad and I was feeling down for myself, so you know what I did? Yesterday, I ate the rest of the cake AND some candy. There is so explanation. I didn't CRAVE it... I just wanted it and it was there. 

Funny Confession Ecard: I feel fat today. And to make myself feel better, I will eat this cake. Yes. Good plan.
Therefore, I am going to save Hazel a small pile of candy but the rest of it is leaving this house. I clearly can't have the temptation in my house because I'm like a crack addict. 
Last night, something huge happened. I realized that the rest of my life I'm not going to go without birthday cake or candy. Those things are GOING to be in my life. It is MY responsibility to say NO to them. I don't need a huge piece of cake followed by 4 Reese's cups. BUT, I CAN have a small piece of cake and be happy with that. I have been busting my butt and I'm not ready to give up now. Sure, I've had some set-backs but I'm only human. I can't deny my child her Easter candy just because I have no self control. I have to learn how to say no... 

Honestly, I've had so much candy and sweets these past couple of days that the smell of it is gross. That's how you know you've had too much. :)

For a while, we have no more distractions (holidays, birthdays, etc.)... So I'm ready to get back on track. This journey is just as much mental as it is physical. I can do the physical part... I just need to overcome the mental part. 

I am tired of making excuses. I'm going to do this.

Now I'm off to purge my house of all the junk food! 

(Jk I'm throwing it out!)

Have a fantastic Tuesday!
