I hate Tuesdays. Can we all agree that Tuesdays are the worst days ever? It was so damn longgggggg……

BUT now it is Wednesday, confession time!

My car needs washed. My car needs washed so desperately bad. I am so sorry dear Rogue for letting  you ride around all dirty. You still have sand particles from the last time in snowed here and that just ain’t right!  Speaking of car washes, Kathy…is this how you wash your car?

I don’t give a shit about March Madness. There. I said it.

I freaking love the new JT song!! It reminds me a little bit of old school NSYNC and that makes inner high school Nadine very happy. The song has been stuck in my head for days.


I am fully aware that I would fail at any diet/lifestyle change that completely cuts out cheese. Don’t lie, you would too.

I hate when I stumble across an awesome new blog and they don’t have a Bloglovin’ follow button. Here is a little memo for you blog world: not everyone uses Blogger and you are limiting your daily readership if you only have GFC. If I REALLY like the blog I will try to find it on Bloglovin’ anyways…but nine times out of ten I am too lazy.


And now a deep confession:

I have been getting angry with my work outs. I wake up and do them, but I haven’t really been seeing much difference. I mean, if I really think about it…my muscles in my legs have improved over the last two months. I can handle longer bouts of cardio than I could when I first started. Yet, I don’t see enough difference for how hard I am working. It is frustrating to make yourself get up as early as I do and work out five days a week to not see desired results. I am feeling discouraged. This tells me one thing, I am not eating clean enough, little enough, or well enough.Also, the increase of strength training with the Beta phase has me hungrier than usual, which has caused me to snack more than I should be. I have been experimenting with upping my protein to keep me full longer. Now that I am aware that I am not trying hard enough, I am taking steps to fix that. Doesn’t mean that it is easy.

Now go link up with my girls Kathy and Liz and confess something!

    I know how frustrating it is to watch all your hard work not yield results. I had the same problem, but I think my issue is my eating: not clean enough, portion control and not snacking on healthy (celery with hummus, nuts, etc) to keep my metabolism going. Try small changes in your diet and see if it works!

    Yay for confessions, my favorite day too!

    I feel so bad for my car, she only gets a proper wash maybe 3 times a year??

    Don’t get discouraged with how hard you’re working out. Have you tried changing up the workouts you’re doing? I was a runner for 4 years and didn’t really start seeing the results until I switched to weights only! Been a game-changer!

    I’ll be glad when March Madness is over, basketball is my least favorite sport ever.

    When I can’t find a bloglovin’ button I copy and paste the URL into Bloglovin’ but like you only if I really like the blog.

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph March 26, 2014 at 1:15 pm

    I just copy & paste the URL into bloglovin’ and start following it. My bloglovin’ is usually open when I’m reading blogs anyway.

    My car is a total shit pit. And it snowed again last night. RAGE

    I totes agree about the JT song. Love it!! Baaaahahaha–my husband said something so incredibly similar about fb’s “people you may know” section the other day!! Too funny!

    hahahahahahahahahahahaha!!! girl, keep those canadian memes coming. now tell me where you are so i can find memes and get you back. your about me page says you’re in the south but where in the south? and if you don’t tell me, then hick memes it will be because you know how much i love stereotypes. TAKE THAT!! LOL

    as for your workout frustrations, are you lifting weights? i didn’t see the results i wanted with insanity but when i did p90x, that’s when i saw it all. maybe you need to pump up the jam.

    thanks for linking up!

    I love that diet e-card! Totally how I get sometimes too. I actually gave up cheese for Lent last year…it was a LONG 40 days, but I did become 1000000% obsessed with avocado (used that to replace cheese on everything)….and truly appreciate a slice of pizza now!

  • Reply Amanda March 26, 2014 at 2:08 pm

    Dude. How do people NOT have a bloglovin’ button for their blog? This drives me nuts, too! I mean, SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, you’re telling me I need to copy and paste your URL into my bloglovin’ search thing to find you? Shit better be fucking good. ;P

  • Reply Lauren March 26, 2014 at 2:52 pm

    I too hate no BL button and also no option via GFC. I know a lot of you guys are too cool for that so I get it, but when I am just trying out a blog, I only follow them via GFC first. They have to earn a spot in my BL!

    My car is gross and covered with bird poo if it makes you feel better… it’s gross. And I hate most songs on the radio but I love that JT song, too! I was just thinking it reminded me more of old pop music!

    Your last confession is the reason why I stopped working out. It wasn’t worth the time, stress, and effort for me personally right now and it made me feel worse. BUT you are awesome and have a great plan in place – maybe you just need a different program? I have no idea but do what works for you!

  • Reply Meegan March 26, 2014 at 3:00 pm

    haha I love your feelings on March Madness. I am right back to hating it, now that my bracket looks like a train wreck. I need a car wash too, but I know as soon as I do the great yellow pollen explosion will happen and my car will be yellow. I immediately pulled up my blog to make sure I have a bloglovin’ button on it, I do, whew.

  • Reply Kate March 26, 2014 at 3:21 pm

    My car needs to be washed too but every time I wash it, it just snows right after. Between the salt and sand on the roads, it is hopeless!

  • Reply Lynsey @ Eternally Wanderlyn March 26, 2014 at 3:49 pm

    Yes to most of these!!! 😀 Except, it’s raining here so my car is being washed for me by Mother Nature. Win!

  • Reply brooke lyn March 26, 2014 at 4:25 pm

    please, please, please don’t get too discouraged with your workouts!!! i know it sucks when you don’t see results right away, but it takes time. really try and focus on the positives that are tangible. whether it is the fact that you can do more push-ups in a set or can go longer during cardio, etc. if you keep progress the physical changes will come too!

  • Reply Lisa March 26, 2014 at 4:35 pm

    Hey Nadine!! I love that JT song!! It does remind me of NSYNC! How could ya not love, right?? Keep going with the workouts, It def. sucks at first but well worth it 🙂 Have a great week!


  • Reply meighan March 26, 2014 at 5:55 pm

    The new JT song=L.O.V.E.! I thought the same thing about sounding like old school NSYNC. And let me tell you how obsessed I was with them from like 1999-present. lol. 😉

  • Reply Bri @ My Life As March 26, 2014 at 7:05 pm

    1) I also need to desperately wash my car…it’s yellow from all the pollen
    2) I don’t give a shit about March Madness either. I don’t like basketball anytime of the year so I’m not about to jump on the bandwagon to fill out some stupid bracket.
    3) I do have Blogger & I don’t follow blogs unless they have bloglovin. Sorry but that’s where I go daily to check my blogs so if you’re not on there I’m not going to notice.

  • Reply Amber March 26, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    March Madness is boring as crap. No thank you.

  • Reply Anna March 26, 2014 at 7:50 pm

    Keep tweaking your workouts and food – you will eventually find what works best!!

  • Reply lisacng @ expandng.com March 26, 2014 at 9:25 pm

    I hate when social or subscription buttons are hard to find as well!

  • Reply Stephanie March 26, 2014 at 9:42 pm

    hahahaha canadian car wash!!!
    Also, you can search people on bloglovin if you really love them and want to follow – they will be on there whether they set it up or not, just search their blog url and you’ll go right to it.

  • Reply Amanda Elizabeth March 26, 2014 at 10:44 pm

    I swear I could be Vegan…..but I can’t give up cheese….well I can’t give up wine and they are like best friends so it would be like breaking up friends and I can’t do that…..makes perfect sense no?

  • Reply Em March 27, 2014 at 2:15 am

    OMG YES. I so agree about JT’s new song. Totally old school Nsync. And may I add that this girl right here is just waiting for them to announce a comeback tour??? Forget BSB and everyone else! My inner pre-teen is screaming. And I too couldn’t give two flips about March Madness…yawn!!

  • Reply Myra March 27, 2014 at 2:30 am

    AGH! The workout thing. I totally wrote about that too, but, I guess I should stop eating ice cream every time the scale hasn’t gone down immediately after my workouts, huh? Lol.

    You got this girl, keep going! Tweak that diet a bit and maybe increase your calorie intake also. Sometimes, you gotta do that to get off the plateau!

  • Reply Jordan March 27, 2014 at 4:21 pm

    I did not even know JT had a new song out! WHAT. As for your frustration, that is what I was talking about in my post last week or whenever I wrote about never having a six pack. It’s such a mindfuck when you work out all week long, eat right, blah blah blah and see close to no progress. It could just be a plateau and it sounds like you’ve found some solutions that will help break it. It’s such a frustrating journey but the important thing to focus on here is to recognize and be proud of the fact that you haven’t given up!

  • Reply Rachelle March 30, 2014 at 1:04 pm

    JT is a music making machine, it’s like he’s always got a new song! I hate when a new blog doesn’t have BL. I’m seriously never going back to your blog now, because of that one little thing! That happens all the time when I stumble across a blog via Pinterest.
