TONE IT UP CHALLENGE

I started getting a grip on the new year a little late in January… Don’t get me wrong, I still work out every Monday-Friday without a hitch in my giddy-up, but now I am cracking the whip down.

Every Monday-Friday I do my Shaun T’s Insanity Max 30. If you have not done this workout, trust me it’s a keeper. I came across the TIU girls a few years ago, but I haven’t pursued their exercises; until this week.

They came across a New Year’s challenge, and I did not do the first week because I did not find it until now. I just finished the second week, and so far I love it! (You can see their challenges here). The only issue is that you can’t open up the daily toning exercises once the day has passed. Lucky for you, I saved them for you. I did not know this, so I missed the first two days, Monday and Tuesday. Since that happened, I incorporated their other workouts into those two days. Click the link below to find the attached PDF of the exercises.

TONE IT UP GIRL TONING EXERCISES

Now, you can do any workouts during the week, but as I said, I did Insanity Max 30. On Saturday and Sunday, I just found some exercises on YouTube. The TIU girls have workouts on their website that are extremely good for you!

Good luck and let me see your results!

30 Day Fall Challenge

Since Summer is now over, I have decided to start a “30 Day Fall Challenge”. I am not a professional by any means, but I am going to stick to a plan that I know has worked for me in the past. 

 

Monday-Friday, I do my Insanity Max 30. On Saturday and Sunday, I try to do a little bit of yoga or pilates. It helps stretch me out for the week to come.

My meal plan is not perfect, and Pinterest has so many options for you to choose. I only pick the things I like the most for my meals. The key is to drink plenty of water and exercise regularly. I love Insanity Max 30 because it is only 30-40 minutes of your day. It’s quick, to the point, and challenging.

I’ve also learned that breaking up these meals is the best way to stay full longer. If you’re constantly fueling your body with the right, healthy, and hearty things, you are more likely to not splurge on the nasty gunk you put into your body. That means no processed foods, ladies and gentlemen! In thirty days, I will share with you my progress and how my 30 Day Fall Challenge worked out for me!

21 Day Fix Extreme Review (with pictures)

Hello Everyone,

 

I completed the 21 Day Fix Extreme workout 3 weeks ago today and I wanted to share my experience with it. I will start by saying for me, it was very challenging. I do not normally lift weights and jump at the same time. Yes, it was a lot of plyo. Workout one: PLYO! Here is what you get in your little package to lose that fat:

IMG_0772

Yes, she is definitely hot! She is a great coach! She is very motivating and makes you believe you can change your body and of course it does not happen overnight. I have to admit that I didn’t follow the diet plan very well. I did have a lot of beer throughout these weeks.. What can I say? Hard days or warm nights. These workouts are all roughly 30 minutes long!

Day One: Plyo Fix Extreme

  1. I do not like Plyo
  2. They really do work, so DO IT!

Day Two: Upper Fix Extreme

  1. I am weak in the arms and I LOVED this workout

Day Three: Pilates Fix Extreme

  1. I have to say I had a hard time with the resistance band 90% of the time

Day Four: Lower Fix Extreme

  1. Autumn’s absolute favorite workout

Day Five: Cardio Fix Extreme

  1. This will have you sweating in the first round!
  2. I’ll most likely do this even after I finish for a good cardio day.

Day Six: Dirty 30 Extreme

  1. WOW! This workout is brilliant! It is fun and rough!

Day Seven: Yoga Extreme

  1. My favorite day…

So, these workouts really get you sweating! You’re working your entire body nearly the entire sessions each day. There’s no rest day! IT’S ONLY 30 MINUTES OF YOUR DAY! That is what I loved most about it. Sooooo drum roll please…. Here is my results:

IMG_0774

*Sparkle*Sparkle* I have to say not much changed really. I did get a little bit more definition throughout my body, but I will have to do a few more rounds to tone up everything AND stick to the nutrition. That was what was so hard for me. I give this workout a good ole 5 star! Let me know what you thought of your results with this workout! I love feedback!
