Tone It Up Progress: 1 Month
It seems like forever since I've posted on here! I can't believe so much time passed by without me making any posts, but life happened and now I'm back!
It's been awhile since I've posted anything Tone It Up related, so I wanted to check in and let you know that I successfully lost 10 pounds in my first 5 weeks on the plan. I was super happy with my results because I had been hoping to lose about 2 pounds a week and was proud that I was able to keep up with that pace. So if you're thinking about buying the plan or starting with Tone It Up, just know that it does work if you put in the effort.
I was successful in my first 5 weeks because I did my best to follow the Bikini Series workout schedule by working out for 60-90 minutes a day. I also stuck to the nutrition plan 99% of the time. I just started the 7th week of the nutrition plan today and it's a bit of a re-start after being on vacation and falling off the wagon for almost two weeks. I did gain back some of the weight I lost in the first 5 weeks of the plan, but now I am ready to jump back in and get back on track!
My plan is to follow the posted workout schedules on ToneItUp.com for the month of July and then starting in August I will follow the 8 weeks of the Bikini Series until my cruise at the end of September. I started with Tone It Up mid-way through the Bikini Series, so I'd like to do the whole thing all the way through and also use it as a slim down in order to get bathing suit ready for my cruise. It was encouraging to look back at the first few weeks of the Bikini Series workouts and see that they start off easier and then get progressively harder as you go along. At least I know I can do the harder parts at the end, so the beginning shouldn't feel as rough!
I will check back in at the 2 month mark and let you know how things are going. Let me know if you have any questions in the meanwhile and I'll try my best to help answer your questions.

Hey! I just read through your posts about the TIU Nutrition Plan. I have been researching the plan for MONTHS now and I was wondering if I could have some feedback on it. I am a fellow vegetarian and I wanted to know if the meals are easy to prepare and if the meals were filling enough throughout the day? I know some people think the plan doesn't include enough calories based on the workouts and I wanted to know if you agreed/disagreed? I really want to purchase the plan after reading some in-depth positive reviews, but I came across some not-so-positive ones as well and was looking for further feedback :) I'm also a senior in college and I'm on a budget--is it expensive to be on the plan? (i.e. are groceries expensive weekly/bi-weekly?)

Thank you so much! :) Your feedback has been very helpful, and with your input plus my friend encouraging me to just go for it, I might just splurge before school starts and finally purchase the plan.
