I don’t remember exactly where I learned about Tone It Up (probably
in my research when looking for different fitness influencers. You can
read about my thoughts on some popular fitness
influencers here), but I’m glad I found them. Their workout gear and
products might be cute and the trainers are all total babes, but man do
these girls know how to work ya. Scroll on down to read more about
my time living the Tone It Up lifestyle for 30 days!
Workout Program Selection: 30 Day Booty
Y’all know I am going to pick the workout program focused on building
the peach! Give me that dump truck baby! Hahaha Leg day has and
I think forever will be my favorite workout day so choosing the program
specifically for the booty was a no brainer.
One of my favorite things about this workout program is having the
workouts already picked out for me. It saves me a lot of time trying
to find a workout to do and it also keeps me from not doing a workout
just because it sounds like too much work (I have gotten lazy in my old
age. lol). With these workouts I don’t know what to expect for difficulty
until it is too late which is good because these workouts are no walk in
the park. These girls talk and sound all sweet, but man do they push
you. Lol I also really like the variety of the workouts. Workouts that have
a lot of repetition bore me and make me want to stop working out before
things are done so it was nice not having to deal with that as much here.
The absolute hardest part for me with any new health regime is the
healthy eating. I am an extremely picky eater and while I loved that they
have a meal plan for you, while I was reading through the recipes I
wasn’t finding much I actually thought I would like and knew there was
going to have to be some changes/replacements made. Oh and healthy
eating requires a lot of prep and involves you having to actually cook food
so I won’t lie and say I never broke the diet. There were definitely days
where you would find me eating pizza rolls or hot dogs out of convenience
and well….because I am weak and gave in to my cravings. But you know
what? I think it is totally fine to have some “cheat” meals every once in a while
and I never let that get me down or make me stop from trying to eat
healthy the rest of the time. Perfection was not the goal. Bettering myself was.
And here are some of the Tone It Up meals I really liked!
So what are my final thoughts on Tone It Up? Honestly, I really enjoyed their
program. They made it easy for me to workout by taking out a lot of the prep
work and they made sure there was never a wasted session.
The trainers are all very encouraging and they
know how to push you to work harder. Don’t let their good looks fool ya…these girls
are motivators! Lol
Their meal plan is also really well done. They have sooo many different
food options and recipes that even a picky eater like me was able to
make it through, which is a testimony to how well done it was in and of itself.
Their app (and website) was easy to navigate and use and there are
sooo many resources for you from workout and nutrition tips, more
recipes, programs for the pregnant ladies, mental health, and more.
I also really enjoyed their products that I tried out which included their protein
bars (my favorite were the chocolate peanut butter ones) and protein powder (chocolate of course. Lol)
I actually just saw that Walmart is now carrying
them and I was waaay too excited about it. These are seriously some of the best
protein products I have ever tried. Definitely worth the price in my opinion.
Oh and everything comes in such adorable packaging. Like sold. Lol
But the main thing I’m sure you all are wondering…did I see any results?
Well…I forgot to take real progress pics so these mirror selfies will have to do. Lol
This one was taken around day 1.
This one was taken about halfway through.
And this one around the final day.
In the end as far as physical changes go I did notice my abs to be a little more defined
and I did feel like my booty had grown/toned up a little. However, the
biggest change I noticed was in how I felt. Eating healthy and working out
everyday made me feel so accomplished, like I finally had my life
together, AND it gave me a confidence boost. You know what they say
“look good, feel good” and “put good in get good out.” Well that definitely was
the case here. And I’m not saying every day was a walk in the park. There
were definitely days where I didn’t want to work out or was just craving something processed, but overall once I got into
the flow of things there was less resistance (well aside from the food part. I swear
eating healthy will always be my biggest struggle. Lol).
Whether you try Tone It Up or not I think one of the big things to remember with workout programs like
this or really any type of fitness regime you partake in, is that it is okay
to not do it perfectly. Listen to your body. It tells you what it needs even
if that means it needs a cosmic brownie like ASAP. lol If you miss a workout
one day it is not the end of the world. There were definitely days while doing this
program where I missed a day because of time constraints or because I just didn’t
feel like it so I would workout for longer the next day or
add in an extra workout day, or maybe just take the time off and use it
to meditate or something like that.
Remember you are doing this to make yourself feel better not miserable!
So do I recommend Tone It Up? Oh most definitely. Even though I no longer
have my subscription (I have some other programs/fitness challenges I want to try for
the blog so I didn’t think it was feasible to keep for the time being) I have no problems
telling people this is one of the best. So if you are in search of something new to try
go with this one and let me know your thoughts when you do!
