It Doesn't Make Sense

I weigh-in every morning like a lot of you.

After a weekend of eating out, tasting every kind of chocolate at the local chocolate festival, and eating an entire box of peanut butter cookies from Trader Joes, the scale showed an all time low this morning of 143.3 lbs.  I even got off and on again to make sure it was correct.

I know I shouldn't be complaining, but usually after a crazy eating weekend, it is usually up near 149+.  At least I did about 45 minutes of Just Dance 2 yesterday and kept my water intake high.

Here is the exercise plan for the week:
  • Monday: Jazzercise (60 mins)
  • Tuesday: Zumba (60 mins)
  • Wednesday: Jazzercise (60 mins)
  • Thursday: Zumba toning (90 mins!)
  • Saturday: Zumba (60 mins)
By the way, I have added my new favorite quote at the top of the blog:

"Just because I got the monkey off my back doesn't mean the circus has left town."


  1. the scale is the craziest thing. Maybe I gained all the weight for you this weekend :) with my family in town and just relaxing food wise too much, I am up a few!

  2. I wish we had Trader Joe's around here, or a chocolate festival. I could use a nice loss, too! ;)

  3. Im down a bit...must be boob karma :) Of course didnt eat chocolate or Trader Joes cookies. Just Girlscouts :)

    Great exercise plan!!


  4. I love the new quote! What a perfect way to describe the craziness of this life. I hear you on the scale thing too. Our bodies are such fickle things, starvation leads to gains and full on binges lead to losses. There is no rhyme or reason, just enjoy it girl! :)

  5. I want your scale!! It works the way mine doesn't. LOL.

    What is the difference between Zumba and Zumba Toning? I found a place that offers Zumba right after work and one of the classes is Zumba Toning.

  6. I love the new quote! My scale did the same thing this weekend. I wish it would go down on weeks I was doing everything right to keep me motivated.

  7. A chocolate festival? I would be in BIG trouble!

  8. Isn't that nuts?? But YAY!! Have fun Jazzing & Zumbing!!

  9. I was very tempted to go to the festival, very, very tempted! I'm saving up my binge for fat Tuesday (shrimp creole and brownies)

  10. That's happened to me only once a few weeks ago. I didn't complain, lol. My scale is so bi-polar; there is no telling what it's gonna do one second to the next. Awesome work out schedule!

  11. LOL, haha, bi-polar scale. :c)

    I love good scale karma!

  12. I call those my Bizzaro World Weigh in's. I've had those WTF moments on my scale too after times of not so great eating. Congrats on the all time low.. :)

  13. That is excellent. I wish I could get my schedule like that...I'm struggling to get my stuff together!
