Excuses Excuses

Dear Bathroom Scale,

I’m sorry I will probably break you later this morning when we have our first weigh-in for the fitness challenge at Stroller Strides. In my defense, the morning after the Superbowl is probably the worst Monday of the year to expect me to have lost weight.

Exhibit A:

The Pioneer Woman's Jalapeno Poppers

Exhibit B:

Quesadillas by Amanda

Exhibit C:

The Pioneer Woman's Drip Beef (not pictured, buttered sandwich rolls and cheese)

Exhibit D:

Fruit Pizza by Amanda - don't be fooled by the "fruit" part, it's shortbread and frosting and chocolate

Not pictured: Taco dip, brownies, three kinds of chips, cheese and crackers, veggies with ranch dip, shrimp cocktail, and my favorite baked potato rounds covered in cheese and bacon.

And let’s not forget my best excuse of all:


So there, Scale. Those are my excuses. I’ll try to do better next week I promise. Of course I mean AFTER E’s birthday dinner and a special Valentine’s treat.




Jalapeno Poppers – Pioneer Woman

Drip Beef Sandwiches – Pioneer Woman

Amanda’s Website – Funny Days with Mommy & Maddie

UPDATE: I weighed exactly the same as last week. So no harm, no foul, leftover drip beef for lunch!

  1. Those jalapeno poppers look amazing, please do share the link to that recipe!! I can so understand where you are coming from with this. Also, I’m making home made chocolates and truffles for Valentines, so I don;t expect it to get any better!

    Oh and day old popper- still goooooood! =)

  4. Good lord, woman! Are you trying to make me jealous of your food extravaganza on Superbowl Sunday? ‘Cause it totally worked!!!! I want to eat EVERYTHING pictured… along with the other foods that received honorable mentions. Hungry.

    Mmmm, fruit pizza. Yum! You do Stroller Strides? I LOVED SS. I haven’t been back since my 2nd baby but I really miss it.

    Mom2Miles – I started a few months ago and LOVE SS too! My instructor pushes us crazy-hard (we RAN 6 flights of stairs today and did a zillion crunches) but it has already made a difference in how my clothes fit and look. For the first time since before I was pregnant I saw a picture of myself yesterday and thought “Hey, I don’t look fat!” By summer I’m going to be a walking SS advertisement.
