Yesterday was the first day of the 2014 Tone It Up Bikini Series! This is pretty much a fun way to prepare for summer with workouts and fun challenges so I’m all in! There will be workouts posted daily on the Tone It Up website. The Bikini Series is FREE so anyone can sign up! They even have some of their recipes posted on the site if anyone is curious about the nutrition plan. Harper and Mike are big fans of the recipes I’ve made so far. I think that everyone’s favorite was the Southwest Turkey burger…oh my drool! I never believed that a turkey burger could be juicy AND flavorful, so now I’m ready to try the other burger recipes from the plan!
This is my “before” picture for the Bikini Series! The best way for me to actually see my progess is through pictures. And flexing in the mirror! Ha!
I’m down to 155lb! Happy dance, happy dance! I’m not a fan of scales, as previously mentioned, and don’t give the numbers too much thought usually. Because I’m on a journey to compete in a fitness competition, my weight and body fat percentage has to come down some. (I’m 5’3″ in case you were wondering)
With that being said…y’all…I have been baking Pop Tarts/Toaster Pastries/WhateverYouWantToCallThem like a beast lately. I found a recipe on 100 Days of Real Food and haven’t looked back. They arent usually 100% TIU approved (occasional cookie butter filling) but I try! Ha! I just need to take a trip to the store (Amazon) so that I can pick up canning supplies. It’s been on my list to make jams or preserves for the house for months now. I think that a mango butter toaster pastry would be pretty amazeballs.
Have you noticed anything new in my sidebar?! I received an email this weekend letting me know that I’m one of the newest Girls Gone Sporty Ambassadors! Mike and I were on the way to market and my “spidey-senses” told me to check my emails. Totally did a happy dance in the car and flexed, of course. 😉
I hope that everyone’s week has started wonderfully!
What are your favorite, unique flavors for jams/preserves/jellies? Jalapeno Apple?
