Happy Monday! Week two of the Tone It Up Bikini Series is complete. This was another crazy week for me as I spent the first two days traveling to Minnesota for a funeral. I packed some airport snacks, but not enough for my long days of traveling. I cracked and got a veggie quesadilla at the airport!
This weekend was filled with a birthday brunch and breakfast with my family. I tried to make good choices, but I just couldn’t order eggs two days in a row. I had to go for the fun French toast on Sunday since it was one of the dishes the restaurant is known for, but I was sure to get in my 3 mile run to help balance it out.
Overall, I’m happy with my progress and my ability to be more mindful of what I’m eating. I am also doing better at planning out my workouts. It helps that my #tiuboyfriend is being super supportive. He passed on a burger at brunch for a shrimp and avocado salad since he’s trying to follow along with me and the TIU Plan! It’s definitely easier having a buddy!

My goals for the upcoming week are still to drink more water (without so much lemon as I think the acidity is affecting my teeth!) and to stretch more. My hamstrings were too tight last week, so more yoga is a must! I’ll post details of my week next Monday!
Stay fit and fabulous,
