–Do you know what will ruin your Friday? Realizing it is only Wednesday. Like what the hell? #longestweekever

–Monday morning I was getting ready for work. I went to the guest bedroom closet to asses how much further I had to go to fit into this dress I have been holding on to for…..oh almost ten years now. It is nothing special, just a plain cotton dress, but I loved it. I haven’t worn it since 2006 or 2007. I slid it over my head and looked in the mirror and…holy shit. It fit!!! So I immediately snapped a selfie, sent it to my work out group chatΒ  and then proceeded to walk to my car, all whilst giving my treadmill the Focker. #workingonmyfitness #fockerized

–I have a stack of magazines about 20 deep right now that I need to get through. Why do I let them pile up so bad??? #tvmarathons

–I dream of a day when my backyard looks like this. Like seriously. Why can’t this be now? #dreaming #butseriously

–I have found myself flexing in the mirror and at my desk after seeing this selfie I sent to my work out group one morning. Finally seeing some definition! #demarms #gunpermitneeded #doyouevenliftbro

dem arms

–Does anyone else play the shit out of the same song over and over again? When the radio stations do it, it’s not cool. When I do it, it is totally acceptable. #onrepeat

–Conspiracy theories. Do you buy in to any of them? I was listening to a podcast the other day that talked about a few and they really make some compelling arguments. And now I sort of want to watch all the episodes of Ancient Aliens. #rabbithole #nerdalert

    You do, girl! You are rocking this! Your arms are looking great! And nothing feels better than fitting into something that didn’t fit… Such an awesome feeling! Keep up the good work!

    ha to so many of things on this post–the biggest one being about the radio! i am the SAME. repeat songs all day but on the radio? annoying! hehe

    Gah you really do find the best eCards! I’ve had “Honey I’m Good” by Andy Grammer on repeat since this last season of Dancing with the Stars!

    I’m totally the same way about songs. I can play it non-stop but the radio cannot. I totally have a stack of magazines I need to read, I do the same thing. Gotta get started on reading them.

    That’s awesome! Great work!!! I’m seeing some small changes, but they’re so minuscule that half the time I’m not even sure if it’s real or I’m just imagining it. And my clothing size definitely hasn’t changed.

    Ancient Aliens is so fun! I’ve only watched a couple episodes, and while I remain highly skeptical, it’s fun to suspend disbelief during the episode and get into it. Plus that one guy’s hair! It just gets higher and higher throughout each episode.

    You’re killing it girl, seeing progress is the biggest motivation. Love it! I would kill for that backyard, I want a pool so bad. I cancelled all my magazines because they were piling. I’m hoarding my Self magazine for our Cancun trip in Sept but my People ones come weekly, piles!

    Congrats on the dress fitting – what an AMAZING feeling

    AND YOUR ARMS! YASSSSSSSSS! Good for you girl!

    And I would love to play red rover as an adult – with people in my department at work. #youknowyoudotoo

    hahahah conspiracy theories. i try not to listen or learn about them because they always sound so convincing and make me believe in aliens for a hot minute (although, the universe is far too large for us to be the only ones.. so.. you know).
    dem arms and dat dress – you girl!

    Looking good! I’m waiting on my heavier weights to arrive from Target. Whoop!

    In the shower this morning I had to tell myself like four times that it was only Wednesday. Good Lord.

    My magazines continually pile up too.

  • Reply Stephanie June 10, 2015 at 12:32 pm

    Arms are looking great! I love going down conspiracy rabbit holes. We’d be crazy to believe everything mainstream, so some of them have to be at least a little right. And that’s fun

    WORK IT GIRL. you guys are doing so amazing; i love how much you’re loving all things fitness and totally seeing results.

  • Reply Tracie June 10, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    So… I totally like to read about conspiracy theories and G watches documentaries on them all time. I LOVE THEM! So people think I’m not to cray, I don’t really all about them in real life.

    YAY for your dress fitting, that is SO awesome girl! Your arms are looking so good! I flex in the mirror too, no shame! Speaking of conspiracy theories I fell down the rabbit hole of YouTube videos about The Illuminati one time and it was hard to stop!

  • Reply alyssa June 10, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    YASSSS QUEEN! Congrats on those non-scale victories!! Look at you go!! Oh and yeah, I do the exact same thing with songs. Cannot STAND when radio stations do it though πŸ˜‰

    Get it girllll! Fitting into dresses and rockin dem arms! You motivate me so much, I hope you know that!! πŸ™‚ Keep after it! And so true about the radio vs me playing a song a zillion times— totally okay for me to do, not them! πŸ˜‰

  • Reply Andrea Nine June 10, 2015 at 6:16 pm

    Oh my gosh, those abs!!!! You are looking GOOOOD!!! And the dress fit!! I wanna see it, I love cotton dresses! I pile up magazines too because I am too busy watching TV so how do I still read books? Go figure! Happy Hump Day sweet stuff!!

  • Reply Kerry June 10, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    I just got rid of a bunch of magazines because I just didn’t have time for them. Congrats on fitting into the dress and those arms! Looking good.

  • Reply Tracy June 10, 2015 at 9:28 pm

    Woo for fitting into the dress! And those arms! Girl, get out of here. And ummm blogger pool party at your house when your backyard looks like that?!

  • Reply Erin of TexErin-in-SydneyLand June 10, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    The same song on repeat had me totally shaking me head saying “yes!” I can’t stand it when radio overplays a song, but when I do…totally acceptable.

  • Reply Kenzie @ CME June 10, 2015 at 10:30 pm

    That is seriously so awesome about your dress and the definition in your arms! Whenever I go to the gym and see good definition in the mirror I stop and stare #noshame. I have probably 100 magazines piled up along one wall in my bedroom that need read ha ha! I don’t know if I will ever get to it… My dad loves the Ancient Alien show! It is pretty neat!

  • Reply Katie June 11, 2015 at 12:52 pm

    Look at those guns! Damn girl! Putting on that dress must have been the most rewarding feeling!! I have several pair of jeans and dresses like that, collecting dust in my closet, and now especially after having a baby I’m sure they will never fit. But I CAN’T LET GO!

  • Reply Teh Megan June 11, 2015 at 3:44 pm

    Bahhahaha #gunpermitneeded I died. Seriously. Coworkers were staring. I’ll get there, one day. I hate that workout results aren’t immediate and then that one week of the month when I notice happens to be the one week of the month that I’m so bloated I could be the Hindenburg. #beingagirlsucks
    Also yes to the radio double standard… I repeat repeat repeat all the day long. #idgaf.

  • Reply Kay R. June 12, 2015 at 12:04 am

    The feeling of a dress fitting after it hasn’t fit for so long is the best feeling ever!!!! I know the feeling. Also I play the same song over and over all the time. Just this morning I listened to one song the entire traffic filled journey to work!
