Happy Monday! That’s a wrap on Week 5 of the Tone It Up Bikini Series! I can’t believe I’ve actually stuck with it this long, but I think it’s starting to make its mark on my habits. While I still schedule ice cream date nights with my boyfriend, I also mentally prepare for it throughout the day by trying to make good choices. Having said that, I did have some Thin Mints this week unfortunately. I’ve been good about sticking to my mixture of almonds and chocolate covered raisins when my sweet tooth kicks in, but this week I reached for Girl Scout cookies which weren’t even that enjoyable! There has still been some progress in spite of my turn to the sugary, dark side . Though I’m more focused on toning up, I’m down 1.2 pounds this week!
I’ve also continued to walk everywhere I go, so I’m now at 115 miles for #150bysummer. (I’m thankful that I live in a walking city!) I didn’t think it was realistic, but Nick told me to stick with 150 miles instead of dropping down to 100. With our active vacation coming up this week in Colorado, I might even be able to squeeze in 175 miles!
