Toned Up-Date Tuesday!

toned update

It’s Tuesday. I am accountable. Are you? Let’s do a little run down of this past week with fitness and nutrition…

  • 150 By Summer?  I am at 125 so that means only 25 more miles to go to reach my goal. I got this!
  • Favorite workout video that Tone It Up has posted this past week? The one today. It was a new bikini series yoga. I loved it! Check it out here… you won’t regret it. It’s perfect if you are new to yoga or do yoga regularly, but want a quick 17 minute series to do after your workout.
  • What does the scale say? Well, it’s no fox, that’s for sure. I am not a huge fan of scales and would never advocate weighing all the time or letting the scale judge your fitness/nutrition. The scale is just a tool like a weight is or a yoga mat. Women tend to fixate on the scale number and if that is you, I would recommend limiting your time on the scale. I used to do that. I don’t anymore. So I am fine with weighing myself about once per week. I am very happy with my weight and my size. I gained about 5 pounds when I moved from Houston to Dallas 6 years ago. I have lost those pesky 5 pounds. I know, I know. 5 pounds isn’t much, but my goal is not really to lose weight so 5 pounds feels like a bonus.
  • Do I eat perfectly? Absolutely not. In fact, I want to laugh at that thought. I do not eat perfectly. At all! Because what am I? Yep, a human. Do not expect perfection. It sets you up for failure! I eat healthy most of the time, but I HAVE to include sweets every so often or I want to grab a cookie tray and devour the whole thing. Get to know yourself, your body, and that is how you will find YOUR health formula.

Only 1 more update to go and I am done with the Bikini Series with Tone It Up. I love this series! Not sure what I will take on next for fitness, but we’ll see. That’s all part of what keeps me excited about working out and staying healthy.
