Wordless Wednesday: Operation Skinny Jeans Style



Guess what?

Today, after my muscles were beaten to a pulp in Bodypump we were at the very end of the workout, only 2 songs left to do, and it was time for push-ups. I’m not gonna lie, typically I don’t just do push-ups on my knees, I do them with my butt in the air…because typically I’m so exhausted at that point and I HATE push-ups that I just don’t care to push myself. Well, I was about to assume my butt in the air position when I had a thought, “You know, I betcha I can do the for real push-ups”. And so I did.

All of them. ALL of them. On my toes. All the way up. All the way down.

And then I cried. {I’m not lying}

Things like that. Doing something that I’ve told myself that I hate doing, or that I can’t do…when I bust down that wall, almost every time, I cry. I hide it easily in the amount of sweat dripping off my face.


Class ended and I went to weigh myself. I’ve been pissed off at the scale {and really myself} for like 2 months now. I’m not kidding you. When was the last time I did an update? I’d already been at the 17-19lbs mark for a month at that point…and I stayed there. So.Freaking.Annoying. I got on the scale and expected to see the same 237/238 that I’ve been seeing.

Except I didn’t.

I saw 236 instead…..THAT’S 20LBS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hot Damn!

And then I started crying again.

I guess this isn’t so “Wordless” afterall…but, here’s where the Wordless comes in. I can’t believe that I’m really posting these, and even more so…I can’t believe what the beginning looks like. But, here’s the progression. I’ve only done 3 mirror shots because there’s been no movement on the scale….so here’s what I have.

starting weight

10 lb mark

20 lbs mark

So…still a really long way to go…BUT?!?!?! That’s OK.

I’m really excited today. I’m really proud of myself today.

Happy Wednesday Ya’ll!
