Time to Tone

by Nicci on 09/23/2009

I have decided I need to work on my toning.  I want to look hot in my Halloween costume this year and it’s a wee bit tight!  I’m going to take on Jillian using her 30 Day Shred! I’m not big on posting weight and inches but I may do it this time around.

Whose up for a challenge?

I’ll be shredding 3-4 times a week until Oct. 24Th.  This is the perfect time to tone up, since many blogger’s have pulled out their Shred dvds again.  Shoot me an email (uptownfitchic@gmail.com) or leave a comment below if you’d like to shred along. I think it would be nice to encourage each other and talk about likes and dislikes while doing this challenge. Or just leave a comment below.

This morning I realized I should invest in a lunch bag, so I’ll be purchasing one after work. I’m starting to carry too many tubs and bags to work plus my giant purse too.

MMM…Oatmeal with PB and chocolate goodness

I really enjoyed this breakfast! :)

I officially had a full tum tum after this.

I think I had too much fun at work today doing online shopping. Okay, I was just buying office supplies, but any form of shopping is fun for me! (I’m a dork)

Lunch was a bore b/c everyone went home or ate out.

Me and my  AB & JELLY sandwich ate alone in the kitchen :(

Coconut water, cucumber, Chobani honey flavor and more trailmix.

YEP, I think I have had enough candy for the week.

I’ll have a review of Chobani later this week.

Now it’s time to tackle dinner and watch some GLEE from last week on the dvr!

What will you be watching tonight and eating?

Bye :)

Buying school/office supplies is like heaven to me. I’ve always loved to “back to school” shop, and I could blow a million dollars on that stuff without blinking an eye. It’s sick!

Laura September 24, 2009 at 6:27 pm

Hey Girl! I think the 30 Day Shred is a great idea, I might have to add that to my routine, I have been wanting to change it up a bit………I will still run as I am addicted but the gym (free weights & machines) are “so old” now. Keep us posted on how it goes for you.

P.S. I am loving the chocolate chips in the Oatmeal, never thought of doing that but I SO AM now! YUMMY! =)

So much delicious food! I really want to try coconut water. And I should totally do the shred too; I just need to get some good weights!

Pam (Highway to Health) September 24, 2009 at 2:30 pm

I love love love coconut water. So good!

Lauren September 24, 2009 at 12:34 pm

I feel the same way about toning. It’s so easy for me to do cardio, but so hard for me to do strength. I’m not why that is, but I am working on tonight too! I’ve been keeping up with the 30 day shred.

Nicole September 24, 2009 at 12:04 pm

YUMMY YUMMY breakfast! Love all those chocolate chips :)

molls September 24, 2009 at 10:22 am

wow yum on that breakfast and your lunch — i so carried mine in a plastic grocery sack yesterday …ew! haha

julie September 24, 2009 at 10:20 am

That reminds me I have to think of a good halloween costume! Haha hmm

And your chocolate pieces make me very happy with my choice of Nutz over Chocolate Luna bar to bring to school. Haha you’ve been so helpful :)

Nicci@NiftyEats September 24, 2009 at 9:43 am

sue September 24, 2009 at 9:32 am

Jess (Fit Chick in the City) September 24, 2009 at 6:45 am

Yes, Nicci- what is this hot halloween costume you speak of? I didn’t watch any tv last night, but I did eat everything in site.

Nicci September 24, 2009 at 6:04 am

Melinda, I love Old Navy. oh great, I didn’t need to know of the sale. Now I have to go see what they have. lol ooohh

Melinda September 24, 2009 at 4:19 am

Good luck, and stick with it. I know you will look great in your costume.

And now it is time for me to online shop a little. Old navy online has a sale ending today- $20 off $100. I didn’t realize that I liked Old Navy so much!

I am going to add you on my blog roll…I am happy that I came across your blog

Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) September 23, 2009 at 6:22 pm

Good luck with the 30 Day Shred!!! I tried it, but it was SO hard for me! I am going to give it another shot!

Your oatmeal looks delish! I love the toppings!

What are you wearing for Halloween? I still need a costume idea for this year …

Meredith (Pursuing Balance) September 23, 2009 at 6:19 pm

I might take you up on that Shredding! Tonight I am watching Law and Order SVU!

Kaytee September 23, 2009 at 6:15 pm

I’m down for the challenge. My goal is to be able to fit into my Halloween costume from last year.

All your food looks great. Have you tried any other types of coconut water to see how that one compares?

I’m watching Glee as I type this… woohoo!

Katie September 23, 2009 at 5:38 pm

Good luck on the challenge, girl! You’re braver than me… I’m already too reliant on my Bengay as it is!

Have a great dinner!

Morgan September 23, 2009 at 4:45 pm

I LOVE Glee, it is so freakin’ hilarious! I can’t wait for tonight, I think it’s my new favorite show!
Have you tried Jillian’s No More Trouble Zones? Killer!

Nicci September 23, 2009 at 10:46 pm

Morgan- omg, Jillians ”No more trouble zones” is hard too. They all kill me! lol
Mari-Yeah you can use any other Jillian dvd too, if you like.

Taylor September 23, 2009 at 4:41 pm

What Halloween costume are you going to be wearing? Sounds sexy. I don’t have the shed vid. How can I join? I’d love to.

Nicci September 23, 2009 at 10:53 pm

Taylor, if you don’t have shred just find any video you think is a challenge and use that. 3-4 times a week.
