Last Friday, the Tone It Up Love Your Body Challenge came to an end. It was 6 weeks of scheduled workouts, goal setting, recipes, and more. I’ve been dabbling in Tone It Up since last June and had never fully committed myself to one of their challenges before. When I knew this one was coming up, I decided that it was something I needed to do.
The goals of the challenge were to do morning workouts 4 days a week, workout every day (if you stick to their schedule), and to log 100 miles of cardio by the end. In the last 6 weeks, I only missed one day of workouts. I did the morning workouts 6 days of the week (usually 7, but I missed a couple here and there). I logged 173 miles of cardio! My body feels a lot stronger and more solid. My goal was to get in shape, gain muscle definition, and feel stronger. I feel that I achieved all of those.
I feel that it’s important to note that I don’t use the Tone It Up nutrition plan. I feel that I already eat a relatively well balanced diet. There are definitely indulgences in my diet, but I try to stick to mostly fresh fruits, veggies, and whole grains. I would like to purchase the plan in the future to support Karena and Katrina, but am not sure if I would stick completely to the plan for my meals.
It also seems important to note that I did not start doing Tone It Up in order to lose weight. My mail goals were to develop more muscle definition and to be stronger. I can say that 6 weeks of these workouts definitely made a difference! While I haven’t changed sizes, my clothing does fit differently.
Aside from the entire Tone It Up community, I got SO much support from readers of Logical Harmony and friends. Having accountability buddies in multiple places made such a huge difference! Not to mention all the support I received online through the TIU community.
Until the next challenge starts, I’m going to stick to Tone It Up as a part of my daily life. If you’d like to join me, please comment and let me know!
