Its swimsuit season and most people are groaning. We love the beach, the sun, surf, and all that jazz but we hate our swimsuits. Personally, I don’t want to go through life being apprehensive about the beach/pool and how I look in my two-piece. Luckily, I have found two lovely ladies who are taking the fitness world by storm: Karena and Katrina from ToneItUp.com!
Fitness for the Fabulous in Us
After I gained the freshmen 15 a few years ago during my first year in college I knew I needed to do something. I wasn’t “overweight” by the doctors’ standards but I wasn’t feeling the hottest either. It took me a few years but I went from weighing 170 at my heaviest to 138 right now! I can’t believe the difference 32 lbs can make. I feel so much better, but as of recent I feel myself slipping away and I don’t like it.
Here’s what I’m going to be doing for awhile: 30 minutes of exercise and a 1200 calorie diet. This has worked so well for me in the past! This may or may not work for you as everyone is different. My exercise will probably consist of yoga and weight lifting. I need to incorporate cardio but I can’t do everything at once. I will probably end up alternating what I do and even increase time as I go on. However, I know that if I do more than 30 minutes a day I’ll quit really fast. Weight lifting bores me if I’m not at a gym (and my town only has one and its not all that large). I’ll update y’all after a week to see how I feel! In the mean time, I’ll be training and getting motivated with the Tone It Up girls!
I love getting updates from them and finding awesome new routines, recipes, and other feel-good activities. I downloaded their app onto my iPhone last fall and they send me weekly updates and other fun things. Perhaps my favorite thing they produce is their YouTube videos! They are so fun and motivating! Here’s one I found that I love:
