Trim Up Tuesday, Week One

Trim Up Tuesday has started with a bang! As you recall, last week I gave my prelude to Trim Up Tuesday, in a rant where I told everyone how I couldn't stand to look at myself in the mirror anymore, and wrote out my fitness goals. Well, I worked hard and lost 3 pounds already! I don't expect results like these each week, but I am heartened by the fact I was able to make such a big difference in only a week's time. Of course, I've been (literally) working my ass off at it! I don't have the stamina to keep up that pace, but I should be able to tackle at least a pound each of the future weeks. And, FYI, I already feel worlds better in my bikini. Let me finish by saying that I won't point fingers, but I know a couple people who need to think about getting back on the Trim Up Tuesday train with me. Comon, you know it's for your own good!


  • I have lost 3 pound(s) since I started!
  • I lost 3 pound(s) this week!
  • I am 8 pound(s) away from my ideal weight.


  • My BMI is: 21.9. This is considered normal.


  • I worked out 6 time(s) this week.
  • I did 2 hour(s) and 40 minutes of cardio this week
  • I did 0 hour(s) and 30 minutes of strength training this week
  • I did 1 hour(s) and 0 minutes of brisk activity this week


  • I did meet my last goal
  • My Last Goal Was: Create an exercise plan and stick to it.
  • My new goal is: Continue to meet my exercise goals for the week.

Damn. Did you see me buy that Heath candy bar yesterday?

I'm coming back to Trim Up Tuesdays after next week's vacation to Florida. There's no way I'll be successful when we're going to be eating out every meal for 5 days straight.

Congrats on your 3 pounds.

That's fine, enjoy your vacation! Just be prepared to bust a move when you get back. At least this gives you time to mentally prepare, right?

Congrats getting back on track! I'm making progress and am thrilled. According to my ticker, I'm 14.4 pounds lost since March or so. I'm in no hurry and am not dieting but just making a point of moving more and either either eating healthier versions of my faves or smaller portions of the real deal.

I think I'm within about 6 pounds of where I want to be (we'll see - it's not really a number so much as a state that feels good), and then I'll be doing the same exact thing but just adjusting the calories for maintenance.

I hope you get where you are trying to be and that it's kind of fun, too.

Way to go Brandie! Congrats on hitting your goal! I do believe that 8 pounds is achievable especially when you stick to your exercise routine and eating wisely. Pardon me, wisely doesn't mean all proper food! ;)

And you are definitely right - it's for ones own good :)
