Hiiiii it’s been such a long time since i wrote in here, I needed a long brake. But now i want to write again 🙂 So I’m starting off with a challenge i just completed, well actually 2 challenges.
I found Tone It Up in 2012 and purchased their lifetime membership, however I have actually never really used it before. Not sure why, however I felt like I wanted a change in my body so I decided to give it a try. I have been working out on and off for years, and tend to get sick everytime I do work out. So I always felt like I had to start over and that is not motivating in it self. So I have for the past few month been doing good, listening to my body while working out and eating pretty good and trying to rest. So that why I decided to do this challenge. I work better when I challenge myself so that’s why I love doing these types of challenges.
Tone It Up was created by 2 best friends here is a little of their story copied from their website 😉 Karena and Katrina, the founders of the Tone It Up have brought a fresh approach to fitness with their fun, energetic, girlfriend-to-girlfriend method of getting fit. Since founding Tone It Up, they have built a brand of fitness products, community, retreats, nutrition plans and have graced the pages of Shape, SELF, In Style, Women’s Health and featured in Forbes and People.

So in october they had a 31 day fitness/ nutrition challenge and they basically give you everything you need. A whole nutrition plan, different meal suggestions, what time to eat what and daily workouts. They actually have daily workouts daily so you don’t have to do a challenge to do them. And I did really good, with a few days of not eating perfectly. It was my birthday during the challenge so I cheated a little 🙂 but it was worth it. I also ate a few peices of candy when my boss had bought some candy that I used to eat as a child, it was like walking down memory lane hehe. So it was worth it for me. I also didn’t work out everysingle day, I only missed 4 days total in the month. When it came to the food, I ate a little more calories sometimes then what they had suggested. Only becuase I lost too much energy when I didn’t.
Then when the challenge was over they threw in a 2nd challenge the 7 day slimdown. Just to enhense the results more. It was great, I also ate a little more on seartan meals during this challenge. So I know I could have had even more defined results. I do see a difference after both and I am super excited.
So I am sort of staying on their meal plans, and their way of eating. I still eat paleoish/ vegetarian which fits in the frames of Tone It ups meal build up.
I highly recommend Tone It Up check them out. You feel very supported by them which is fantastic. The also recommend that you connect with other tiu member to get more support.
Here are my before and after pictures, I feel and see a difference especially in the stomach area. The love handles and petruding of my belly has shrunk yaayyy I am happy with my results. It is just the beginning ❤
