WIW and WILW and OHP

Happy Wednesday!  We are having a date night tonight…so I’m excited about that (gym, dinner, and a movie!  Woop!)

Let’s start with WIW. I didn’t weigh in last week….but I know today’s was UGLY.  The last few weeks of outings, travels, and parties did not bode well. Tack on to that my TOM, and I’m back where I was when I started doing weigh-ins a few weeks ago – 179.  I’m not proud of it, but I know I have a renewed sense of commitment and “get-it-done-edness”.  I’ve also started a fitness IG account to post some accountability things (and not annoy my friends who could care less about my fitness measures).  I’m excited to see this number go back down. I know a lot of it is water weight and bloat, so next week should be good.

Now for What I’m Loving Wednesday and Oh, How Pinteresting!

This week I’m loving…

This mashup video.  I love the song, but the video is a bit raunch.  This makes up for it. #Cosby

I loved this post “Stop Defining Yourself By What You Don’t Like”  Favorite quote (That I think the church could learn a lot from):

We often define ourselves by the things we stand against, thinking it makes us special. We talk a lot about sin. About the things we’re not supposed to do. About the things our culture does that we, as a Church, denounce.

There’s a scene in Liberal Arts, a nostalgic coming-of-age indie film directed and starred by Josh Radnor (of How I Met Your Mother), where 35-year-old Jesse, a self-proclaimed literature aficionado, is negative and judgmental about a book that his college-aged, free-spirited girlfriend enjoyed.

“You think it’s cool to hate things,” she tells him. “And it’s not. It’s boring. Talk about what you love, keep quiet about what you don’t.”

I’m loving this shirt from Kiki La Rue.  Who will buy it for me? 🙂

And some pins…

LOVE this arrangement, bringing everything together on one board.

Love this closet.  Who needs a guest room when you can have a closet like this?

For starters, after a not-so-stellar week on, I’m happy to report that I’m only down .1 pounds.  Nothing miraculous, but last week was CRAZY busy with lots of eating out.  So today’s weigh in:
SW: 178
Last week: 173.6
This week: 173.5

Honestly, these next two weeks are crazy as well.  Not that that’s a valid excuse.  I’ve lost weight before during crazy times.  However, I’m choosing not to stress myself out too much by adding tons of pressure.  I’m hoping to get through these next two weeks making  good(ish) choices and hit it hard in July.  July is much more calm for me. I’m going to kick butt when I get back into my normal groove.On a non-scale related victory…I’m back into some pants that were too snug a couple weeks ago.  Glad to have my navy skinny pants back in my wearable wardrobe. 🙂

Now onto some things I’m loving this week….

Linking up with What I’m Loving Wednesday and Oh, How Pinteresting!

I’m loving listening to Radio Lab podcasts. They are so entertaining, informative and interesting. This one brought me to tears about a baby fighting for her life.

I’m loving TJ Maxx!  I got some SUPER cute clothes there for upcoming things (wedding, concert, etc.).  Just call me a Maxxinista!

I’m loving that last night I had dinner with some fun local blogger friends.  Shout out to Gwen, Sarah, Jen and Brockette!

And now for some pins I’m loving… We LOVE the lobster pizza from Red Lobster. I can’t wait to try it at home!

I saw this, which goes along great with yesterday’s post. 🙂

And I can’t wait to try these shoelace tricks with my running shoes!

What are you loving today?

I’m linking up with The Vintage Apple and This Kind of Love for Oh, How Pinteresting and What I’m Loving Wednesdays. 

After a long weekend, I don’t know about you, but I need a little humor to get through this week.

In college, my roommate and I loved watching funny Youtube videos.  I revisited a favorite this week.

or I just have this playlist on YT called “Sad Day”  Kristen Bell won’t disappoint you…

I also love (while this isn’t super funny) that Hanson has a beer coming out called MMMHops.  Yes, MMMHops.  They are so funny.  I’m hoping they serve it on tour.  Also, they are selling MMMHops merch to benefit the Oklahoma tornado victims.  Check it out

And for some pins I’m loving….

Truth.

And I just love this.

And some humor for my nerdy writer side.

Hope you have a great Wednesday! Woohoo for short work weeks! Tomorrow night I go see Grace Potter and then Friday I head to Dallas for an awesome weekend with some friends!
