{Tone Up Tuesday}

Hello Ladies! For about a month, I put this little blog of mine on the back-burner. With a three-week vacation, a new job, and a move into a new house, I thought a break was needed. But heck, when you take a month off, you get just a little too comfy. I decided it was time to get my butt back in gear. So, here I am!

While doing some brainstorming for the blog and reading over some of my favorite blogs, I ran across a fellow Okie's "Tone Up Tuesday" idea. I have wanted to add a little bit of fitness to my blog for awhile, so I thought this would be a fun way to incorporate it! And, it was Tuesday!

So, I just accepted that I needed to get my butt back in gear in more ways than one (the first step is acceptance, right?).That three-week vacation I mentioned up there... yeah, it killed my diet and ate it for dinner. I had been doing so good, and then I traveled to the East coast. While there, I was surrounded by BBQ, fried food, and lots of home-cooking. I tried to be good, really. But, when I came back home, I quickly realized I didn't do too good. 

A week or two after we got back, I ran walked in the Color Me Rad 5K. I was so sluggish and out of shape that I was embarrassed how little I could actually run. And sadly, I haven't done a thing about it since that day. So, it is time to "get my butt in gear." I have some 5k's to get ready for!

  1. These are some great photos! Thanks for linking up!!

    1. Thanks Allison! This is such a great idea!

  2. Coming back from vacations is the WORST. I had a similar experience a few weeks ago and decided I needed to get my butt in gear after an extended vacay to the West Coast.

    Good luck!

    1. It is so hard! Thank you so much, and good luck to you as well! I'm jealous of how far you can run! I will be there soon, fingers crossed!
