Monday Morning Madness

Found this on my obsession, Pinterest. 
This was on my mind this morning! Should have listened to the wiser!  I didn't want to get on but thought I better keep up with my accountability!  URGH!!! Ok I didn't cry but I don't want to do anything now.  I have been working my tail off to no availl!  The only saving grace is that I had the good sense to take my measurement last Monday!  Thank goodness.  So even though the scale goes up or stays the same, I've actually lost in inches.

3/4" off my bust
1" off midriff
1/4" off the small of my waist
1/2" off my lower abdomen(baby pooch)
3/4" off my upper thigh
1/4" off my lower thigh
These are very encouraging.  I know with low-carb your body will hold on to weight for a long time before letting it go.  I don't understand this but I know it to be true.  It's so important to not only look to the scale for signs but also other forms of measurements.

I didn't make it to the gym this morning due to not being prepared!  I know better.  The excuse:  I didn't do my own laundry.  Sorry not going to the gym in 3 day old stinky workout clothes.  My solution:  Go buy some more workout gear, an outfit for each day. LOL!  Is that frugal?  I wonder if not doing so much laundry would actually save us money in the long run!!!Hahaha.  Yes that's going to be my reasoning.  Wonder what hubby's feelings would be on that.

Now I would like to share a happy topic SPRING IS ON IT'S WAY!!! How I know this is our beautiful flowers have started to bloom.  I know they are winter bloomers but they are a sign of things on the horizon.  I love Spring and these are one of the only things I love about living in the middle of our country. Yeah I'm not a lover of Texas but I'll take what I can get.   And these are always a place of beauty.  They seem to show up right when I've just about had enough of the cold.  I'm ready to get my hands in to the dirt and plant some beautiful works of art by my Creator.  How can you look at these and not feel the peacefulness of God's great creations?

Have a blessed Monday!


  1. Hi Deanna,

    I found you from the blog hop and am now following you lovely blog!

    I love the cartoon - could it BE any more true?! lol. But GREAT JOB on losing the inches -- I know I could stand to lose a few! :)

    I can't wait til Spring, either... somehow, I just don't think the snow has made it's last appearance here, though.

    I'd love for you to stop by Gumdrop Pass ( if you get the chance.

    Have a happy Thursday! :)
