Follow Through Friday

Finally, a week where I feel as if I was actually able to follow through on my goals... for the most part. Monday was my first official day of the T25 program. I have done many at home workout programs and DVDs through the years, so far I would put T25 tied with Jillian's Body Revolution as my favorite. Short, sweet and effective.

I have switched up the schedule a bit this week. The majority of the moves require you to stay on your toes, and my calves are feeling it! Walking was difficult on Wednesday (but in a good way) and I decided rest was needed. Yesterday I was feeling great and played catch up with Total Body Circuit and Ab Intervals.

 Today should be a double day with Lower Focus and Cardio, but I'll be making them up this weekend. Instead, tonight is a much needed and long over due date night. Wyatt is going to spend the time at my mom's and I get to get out of the house for the first time in about 6 months. Ex-cit-ed!

On top of T25, I have a run planned in the freezing cold tomorrow and I'm doing the Fitfluential Burpee Challenge. 110 down, 890 to go!


I mentioned on Monday that I am trying to go wheat free to see if it will help my Lupus. It's been an adventure. There was no doubt that this would challenging for me. I love all things carbs. This week has not gone perfectly, but I'd say I'm eating only 1/4 of the wheat products I was before. That's a big accomplishment for me! I plan to hit the store this weekend and stock up with more options to make next week ever more successful. 

Now, I am allowing myself to indulge a bit tonight and I can tell you right now that I will not feel bad about it. Even if the scale reflects it. It is a very, very rare opportunity for me to go out and be Tiffany, not just Mama. Don't get me wrong, I love that little guy and cherish every moment with him. But sometimes you just need a breather and a chance to reconnect with your husband/boyfriend/significant other... This comes around only about twice a year for me, and I'm really looking forward to it!

But, it's for one night and one night only. Tomorrow will be back to healthy eating, lots of water and killing it in my workouts.


The Facebook Accountability Group voted for a Photo Challenge for February. The ladies in this group are so amazing and keep me going some days! If you want a place to find support in your weight loss/health journey, come join us! The group is secret, so if you want in, get me your email and I can send you an invite.



  1. Sometimes it's easier to ease your way in, instead of going cold turkey re dropping grains. The only reason not to ease aren't giving your body a real chance to lose the brain chemistry-caused cravings for it. But 3/4 less than normal is a good start! Congrats!

  2. Have fun on your date! :) burpees are no joke. I should probably do that challenge. There's a Spartan mud run I'm doing mid May....if you don't successfully complete an obstacle you have to do burpees! Thanks for sharing the challenge.
