Pudge Problem/Pretty Solution - Inspire Me Healthy Link-Up


{This post was written on Monday 8/20 - since then I have been to the gym every night!}
All In My Twenties

This week’s post is about getting serious – something I needto do. obviously.

As a short person {only 5’ 2”}, any amount of additionalweight makes a big difference. I have never been a “tiny” girl – although whilstin high school drill team I was pretty damn small.

{Btw - high school skinny is neither cute nor appropriate onceyou are a grown ass woman}

Anyways, as depressing as it is to say that I weigh 160pounds, I honestly do not feel like I look as heavy as that sounds. I don’tlove the way I look, but I don’t feel like 160 pounds either. See the dilemma?


Over the years, I have learned a few things about myself:

{1.} I have no will power when it comes to food. I actually findeating/dining to be really freaking enjoyable.

{2.} I have to have set goals with very specific rules outline{rule natzi right here}.

{3.} As important as goals and rules are, who can forget about howmuch I love rewards! {lollipops, stickers, diamonds, whatever}

{4.} I prefer a crazy mix of exercise, not just a boring routineof jogging around a track like hamster on a wheel. {why I love Crossfit so muchand why I am so sad to be broke and unable to do it}

{5.} I h.a.t.e - hate fad diets


SO – what are you going to do about all this Lindsey!!?



{A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do – hey I gotta havesome thinspiration folks}


So here is what the loot line up looks like:

A beautiful handmade piece from Bip And Bop! But how to choose!


One {or more} of the many super cute dress from KiKi La'Rue {oh how my closet misses you}


Mama needs a new pair of shoes - DSW, will you marry me?


A mini-vacation is just what this weight loss winner deserves! Maybe San Antonio, Fredericksburg or Lake Travis will do!


So there you have ladies! I will keep you posted on those pudgy pounds AND the pretty prizes! {And the pouting partner at my house after he sees the tab!}

What would get you motivated!?
