Drove to work today with wet hair to account for my run… Here is the end result.it works. do it. make time for it, even if your hair is messy everyday.Yes. The Tone It Up plan works, and it is worth paying for. I have lost some good lbs and some good inches. But more importantly, I FEEL good. Some people look good but don’t feel good because their approach is self debilitating (ie my previous self). This plan works for me because it is fun, different everyday, and positive. The saying is true: If you tell me I suck at life, I’m gonna suck at life. If you tell me I rock at life, I rock at life. (Yep, just made that saying up. Spread it like buttah.)
Best Christmas present ever from the hubs. There’s just something amazing about checking off my 30 minute or hour long morning run.tick tock tick tockHow do you have time? I don’t have time, I have to make the time. I work full time plus a few side projects, plus moving into a new house, plus living the good life. But what’s the good life worth if you don’t feel good? I wake up an hour earlier every morning to get a good run in. Sometimes I do my tone it up or resistance workout during my lunch break, sometimes at the end of the day, sometimes I just can’t squeeze it in. But that’s fine, so long as I have had my morning run and my morning coffee, all is in balance in the world.
ask for help, ask for friendsSometimes you can do it all by yourself, sometimes you just need a little help. I need friends to sweat with. I need my hubs to understand and support my eating and work out needs (he does fully). If you are overwhelmed you have to communicate to the ones you love as to why and what they can or cannot do. We all hate it when people ask us if they look fat, so stop asking, and if they do ask if they want to workout since they don’t feel amazing about themselves right this second. (Just a suggestion, or you can give me frozen yogurt that helps).
Balance is EverythingI’m not perfect, not even close, with my workouts, eating or life in general. Sometimes I have too much to do in one day to workout, so if that means I have to dance all night to burn off the calories I neglected that morning, so be it. But really, if you don’t let yourself have a little fun now and then, you’re probably gonna suck at life more often than you are a rock star. Eat well. Be well. Dance a lot. And yes, TONE IT UP.
