"Trim the Fat" Tuesday

Last week I decided to keep the same goals as the week before. Here's how I did with them the second time around:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day. DID IT! Even this weekend I made sure to get my water in...WOOHOO!
2. Take vitamins EVERYDAY. DID IT! I almost forgot yesterday but remembered right before I fell asleep.
3. Work out with Jillian 3-4 times. FAIL. I worked out once with Denise Austin, which was okay. She's a bit too perky for me so after I get the workout down I'm thinking of muting her.

I will add that on Saturday we walked the length of two malls, a flea market and a grocery store so while I'm not counting that as a "workout" it was more walking then I've done in a long time.

I'm not going to make any excuses. It's something that I definitely need to continue working towards.

Next week's goals:

1. Drink 4 glasses of water a day.
2. Take vitamins EVERYDAY.

I'm keeping the first two so that I continue to make the right decisions everyday. I haven't included exercise in my list of goals because I'm off from work and will be spending time with my friends. I know that some our activities will involve a fair amount of walking so I'm not too worried about scheduling time to make it happen.

So how did you do this week?

I walked alot this past week, but so freaking busy w/work and vacation prep. Actually, too busy to eat much, so maybe that's a good thing. I'm proud of you, Brandy.

Excellent! 2 out of 3 goals accomplished sounds good to me. Keep moving forward with those and you find the workout that works for you.

I always hate the instructors because they are all too perky!

Good for you on the water and vitamins. And even working out once is good. That is all I managed this past week, too. said...

Well I am not doing Tift but I am doing Weight Watchers. And I totally hear ya about excercise.
have only done it once in two weeks but my excuse is that I have been sick.. I am feeling better today but I have a ton of crap to do. I will do better next week.
Good on ya for the water and vitamines. I have lost 13 pounds so far in 6 weeks so I am pretty cool with that.. Right now all I want to do is drink some water, then take a nap!

Good for you on the water and vitamins! I should start taking a mutli-vitamin, too.

I'd totally count the walking as a workout! At least it's some sort of activity, right?!

Good luck next week!

My phone has a pedometer on it and I am always surprised by how many steps, sometimes by how few, sometimes by how many. Walking is great exercise!

Good for you!
Happy Fourth of July

I find vitamins and water such a challenge too-- I need to get serious about that again. Ugh.
