This Math Equation STINKS!

Why is it when I married my husband and we moved in together he lost 10 lbs & I gained 5?  That is math I dislike.  


He has started eating more fruits and vegetables from me in exchange for me eating more of his processed junk food.  UGH!  Thankfully we've both given in a little and have some balance in regards to groceries.

Does things end up in your refrigerator from a roommate or significant other that SCREAM your name?

However I am SUPER excited about this Oskie Woskie shirt*** I found for only $4.  Shana from ColorBlind got me hooked on these kinds of shirts while on our thrift shopping extravaganzas.

***Oskie Woskie (pronounced OH-ski WHOA-ski) is a term for shirts that are at least 25 years old.

  1. Bad foods SCREAM my name for sure! My roommates and I all buy our own food, so it really could be worse, because I have a roommate who eats really poorly, but I definitely could eat's just so hard! Seasonal Oreos are the worst. They are sooo good. However, very high in sugars, fat content, etc. I need to eat better but I have a really hard time doing it.

    Any suggestions?


  2. You're back with avengence! And doing the oksie woksie I see! I like it a lot. I dont want to tell you how much I've gained since I've been with my boyfriend but birth control and strange hormones dips were involved. Im off the drugs now so should be back to normal soon.

  3. Hi Sarah! Well, both my husband and I gain *way* more than that in our 23 years of marriage, so I think that's quite a good result so far.

  4. My husband only ate fast food before we got married. Then I made him eat 3 meals a day, fruits and vegetables and he gained 30lbs in the first year. :)

    We defy logic.

  5. My husband and I have both gained weight since we got married. Not a super ton, but enough to not be able to fit into some of the pants that I could pre-marriage. I just keep trying to lose it/keep it at bay. Following you now!

  6. I absolutely love the color of that shirt on you!

  7. That shirt is super cute!!

    I know what about mean about gaining weight when you start dating/move in a with a guy! I don't think I have a single friend who has not experienced it!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  8. Some of Max's foods definitely scream my name ;-) When we first got married I *definitely* gained weight because he ate all the time and I'd just plop down with a plate and join him. Too bad it doesn't work that way for girls! :P

  9. You look great. And that workout routine sounds amazing. Changes up so much. Great top.
