Tough It Out Tuesday - The St. Louis Edition

I should have known to keep my damn mouth shut. But did I? Nooooo! Last week I had to go and brag that I'd been pretty on point with my eating, so I felt like I just needed to up my workouts. Then I spent the weekend in St. Louis.

I think the healthiest thing I had all weekend was a fruit cup at the St. Louis Science Center.
But I had beer, sooo..

This whole situation is obnoxious though because my workouts have been so good this past week. And while I didn't "workout" in St. Louis, we did so much walking every day and I'm more than positive I got quite the workout. But my eating has been crap.

I just want both things to line up and be good at the same time.
Is that too much to ask for?

So yesterday I made myself a pretty strict meal plan. We'll see how it goes.
Honestly, I'm a little worried about it because I think I'm going to be very tempted to go off script and eat things that aren't on the plan.. Aka Cookie Butter and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups. Also things like carbs and cheese. Yea, to be honest, I think I might have set myself up for failure a little bit this week. So we're going to aim for 100% on the meal plan, but if I hit 80% then I'm going to call it a win. 

We are definitely aiming for 100% on my workouts though. Anything less than 95% is going to tick me off. I'm still on my 2 week plan and I'll be back next week with a review on it!

OH, and I've decided it is officially time to bump up my water intake to 100 ounces a day! I'll be hashtagging like crazy on Twitter and Instagram #100ouncesAday so please join me so that I actually do it! Seriously!

Go visit Allie and give her some words of encouragement. That girl.. She's a rockstar. I like her.

The Best Of Intentions


  1. I am SO in on the 100 ounces challenge! :) You know me and my love for instagram posting!

  2. But you look stunning holding your beer, so it totally evens out.

  3. My eating hasn't been that great either! WHAT IS WRONG WITH US ;-)

  4. Good luck on meeting your meal plan goal this week!! I have got to do something about my bad eating!!

  5. Sightseeing and Shopping and stuff burn lots of calories and you don't even realize you are doing it! I got this app called MapMyFitness and it will tell you how much you burned if you enter your activities in. I love it!

    I need be better at tracking my water intake... I don't right now, so I have no idea how much I drink.

  6. i mean at least both your fitness and your eating didn't suck. sometimes we can't have it all and that's ok. that is why they call it a journey

  7. Ahh I need to up my water intake too... 100 oz sounds like a lot what is that 6 bottles guess not too bad.


I love you people! Let's be friends.
