Tone up Tuesday:

Tone up Tuesday: So what are you doing to Tone up this week? This Tuesday I am taking the chance to show you all that I have not been just giving you ideas on Tone up Tuesday but I have been working hard to get fit.

Since the first of this year I have been trying my best to loose weight. I actually accomplished it! I have lost a total of 20 lbs! I had no clue how big of a change in my looks it made until my husband took a picture the other night. I have been getting many wonderful comments about how much weight I have lost. My husband tells me almost every day that I am wasting away. I love all the compliments because it keeps me going.

I have also been asked what is my secret? No secret at all. I have been cutting back my calorie intake to about 1100 a day. I also have tried my best to cut out sugars and breads. Those two things are my weaknesses. I also only drink flavored water and occasionally a glass of milk or juice. I also cheat! Oh yeah I will cheat and eat something not so good for me or go over my calorie count maybe once every other week. Of course there are also date nights where I won’t worry about what I eat. Don’t be afraid to cheat every now and then. Also if you feel like you have done bad one day don’t worry just start new the next day and try your best.

I also started doing Jillian Michael’s Shred but I only did it for 2 weeks because I started feeling bad. I love the work out and it makes me feel good after I do it. It is not easy though. The first 2 days you really just want to cry. I pretty much did the first day. It works every part of your body…So worth getting past the first 2 days. So there is my secret :) I hope to loose about 10 more pounds.

  1. Good for you! I think once a person truly makes the choice to get healthier and lose the extra weight, nothing can stop us! You look great!
    My Tuesday tone up involved climbing up and down bouncy slides with my 3 kids. You never realize what a workout that is until you do it!
