Weigh In / Work Out Wednesday 5-29

Sorry I missed last Wednesday! I am back and on the right track this week! As always, I am linking up with Weigh in Wednesday and Workout Wednesday!

Pretty Strong Medicine


I have to say I am a little frustrated with myself. I feel like I have been playing in the save 5 lbs for like two months! I need to figure my shit out and just do it already. My husband has been working his ass off too and yesterday in the mirror we were both flexing to be dorks, and there was no change between my relaxed arms and my flexed arms. But when he flexed, you could see some muscles forming and I am SO proud of him. He is doing awesome, but I need to re-focus. That brings me to this week's weigh in. 

250.9 (+3.1) (-34.7)

So that's that. I am ready to take control of my self and make this week counts. 

For Workouts, I have discovered a new iPhone app I LUV!!!

Rip Deck is basically my 52 card sweat workout

but on your phone, and easier in the moment. You can personalize it 100%, and you just push the button to see your next card. 

We built workouts for any occasion.

It even tells you how long it took you to do each exercise. I really like this app. It is $1.99 but I definitely think it's 100% worth it. It makes your workout fun and easy, and you do 100 reps of each move by doing it. It keeps your body moving and keeps you interested. And in case anyone was wondering, Rip Deck doesn't know who I am, this isnt sponsored, I just love it. lol

I am also starting Couch to 5K again. I kinda started it a few weeks ago but the DHC Challenge got in my way so I am ready to get back on the right track :D I didn't have any troubles getting through week one which was a huge accomplishment for me! I am excited to complete it for the first time (out of 5 times I have started it lol). 

How are you moving your body? Join the Skinny Meg Workout Wednesday link up! It's a super fun time :D

  1. Okay, I totally need that app. Theres an exercise called the Peeing Dog? Crazy!

  2. Don't be frustrated about your husband's arms looking muscular more quickly. That is the nature of the beast, literally. If you had more testosterone, you could have the same progress. Be glad you don't girl!

  3. What a great app!! I need to check this out. I know it's easy to get frustrated but we all have days or weeks that completely suck. Just push it aside and move forward! You're overall loss is already amazing!

  4. Very cool app! Thanks for the post about it. I'll have to check that out. And I was the jealous wife starting weight loss. My hubby can lose weight like a champ so he was so far ahead of me. But it just made me realize that everyone has a different journey and I need to focus on mine.

  5. I need to find that app when I get home. That sounds great!

  6. Don't be discouraged by your husband's change: women aren't like men. We just don't tone the same way...or as easily.

  7. I love that deck thing! Such a cute idea for working out :)

  8. Thanks for linking up with us today, Jess!

    I stayed in the same 5lbs for the good part of this school year so I know how frustrating it can be! You can do it!

    Love the app! I might have to check it out.

  9. Men ALWAYS change faster than women! Keep going girl! You got this!

  10. I have been yo-yoing with the same 2-3 lbs for months and months! I feel your frustration! I'm hoping I have some sort of positive change next week. You can do it too!

  11. They did a workout like that on the biggest loser. I am totally downloading that app!!

  12. How cool is that app!?? Thanks for sharing :) BTW, I spent 5 (FIVE!) months at the same weight (Aug '12 - Dec '12), but I kept at it and it finally came off - that was 17 pounds ago! Just keep swimming, sister!! You've got this ;)

  13. Do you know what's great about this?! The reminder that no matter what, you can ALWAYS get back on track!

  14. Hi Jess! Great blog! WOW! What an amazing review of RipDeck. Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and praise. This is why we do what we do. Thrilled to be a part of your fitness journey!
