How much does 1/2 of a Pound Weigh Anyways?

It's Weigh In Wednesday time.
Believe it or not, I have actually been looking forward to this day.
I've been working hard, and I even got in my last chance workout last night.

I walked 2 miles, I did the elliptical for 45 minutes...and then my awesome husband realized that Zumba class was about to start so I ran in there and joined that class. I was exhausted but what a great workout. Oh yeah, and I did Jillian Michaels that morning too, that's probably really why I was tired.....2-a-days!

I always WANT to go to workout classes.
And I have great plans to go, but for some reason I can't ever get there at the right time.
Kids be making me late.


And then, I weighed in this morning and guess what? I only lost 0.4 lbs. Womp, womp.

Surprisingly, I'm okay with this.
I'm fairly positive that Mother Nature was the cause of such a small loss. So I'll be back Danni-style (from the Biggest Loser, don't ya know) with a great loss next week.

The title of this blog reminds me of a science question that I had in probably the 5th or 6th grade. You should know that I am a FAST test taker. I always finish 1st or 2nd. My philosophy is if I don't know the answer now, I'm not going to know it later so why sit here and spend time thinking?? I don't advise this method.
The question was: Which weighs more? A pound of feathers or a pound a bricks?

And almost everyone in class missed it. Go figure. We didn't have time to sit there and think about the answer. 

I can't wait to hear about everyone's progress on this bright and shiny Weigh In day.....remember, summertime is just around the corner!

Happy Hump Day Y'all!!
Pin It Now!


  1. You are killing it with the exercising, I wish I was that motivated. Great job!

  2. In my opinion a loss is a loss! ...and you are seriously working out like a straight BOSS! Love it!

  3. Your workouts will catch up with you, and a loss is a loss...I hate though, when I've been extra good all week, and it doesn't show up on the scale! I get weighed at WW, and I often think of the old days, when they used scales that weren't digital...those people didn't even get to know they lost 1/2 a pound! Hurray for progress!

  4. I dusted off the 30DS DVD last night too. A little late to the party but I am doing your challenge. Might try to do a few 2 a days on the weekend to catch up. Danni motivates me big time! I try to watch biggest loser while walking on the treadmill but if that doesn't work for me I make sure to peel myself off the couch and work out after because after you see them weight in how can you not workout for the day.

  5. A loss is a loss lady! Yay for JM even though I HATE seeing her everyday. blah

  6. 2 a days. You beast. you rock my face off. that is all.

  7. Geez, I want your energy :) Congrats on the loss!

  8. Yeah for 2 a days!!! We are gonna be so sick of seeing JM's face soon :)

    I'm totally with you on fast test taking...people always looked at me like I was a weirdo when I finished so fast.

  9. A loss is a loss! Keep up the awesome work! Mother Nature can suck it this past week, for me too! ;)

  10. You exercised that much and lived to tell about it?!? Way to go!

  11. I'm sure it was mother nature! Are y'all going to the gym here in Atoka? I thought about joining. Love Zumba but haven't done it in forever so I'd be ashamed! Lol!

  12. A loss is a loss. I'm proud of you regardless. You can do it. Mother Nature is a you know what. But it will be ok.

  13. Congrats on the half pound, girl! That's great! :) Oooh, that 1 pound of feathers/bricks question could be tricky! Especially if you are in test-taking mode!
