Spring into Bikini Series 2.0: Launch Post

It's HERE!! It feels like I've been waiting all my life for the Tone It Up Spring Challenge. As you may know I found TIU just before the launch of last year's spring challenge so for the duration of the challenge I was 'testing the water' to a certain extent so now I am a fully fledged TIU Sister; I am so pumped for this!

It also could not have come at a better time; I was expecting a gain when I stepped on the scales this morning as I'd admittedly not done well last week. However I wasn't expecting a gain of 10lbs! I'm taking it with a slight pinch of salt as my scales are literally on their last legs of the current batteries (never fear I have ordered some replacement batteries) but a gain is a gain, I'm taking this challenge seriously. 

Therefore my start weight is 165lbs. Again I have no idea how this happened because I didn't eat THAT badly but hey ho. I'm taking it in my stride. I now have 20-25lbs to goal weight (I'm not entirely sure what to make my goal weight yet; 140 or 145; I'll get to 145 first and see). I don't know if I can lose 25lbs in 8 weeks but I'm damn well going to try. Anything is possible with Tone It Up.

What's on offer for the next 8 weeks

Despite thaty horrific number on the scales this morning I'm feeling confident. I've taken on a new mindset. I am the only one in my house (I live with my parents and younger sister) who is on an 'eat clean' diet plan. (My Mum is maintaining with Weight Watchers) Therefore, my house is so full of temptation. I've had an 'I-can-eat-what-I-like' calorie controlled mindset for a while now and it's clearly not working. I am still going to count calories as I like feeling in control but I WILL NOT pick something up just because I want to eat it anymore. I've got a goal. I want to reach it. 

It's going to be tough. It's going to be really tough. I'm going to have to fight the temptation that's absolutely everywhere in my house- I won't be able to avoid it. I can't change my family, nor would I want to but I've got to do what's best for me and beneficial in achieving my goals. 

I feel in control which I think is a good place to be in. I'm not nervous because I know I can make my body perform. I've seen myself change and this is really now to round off what has been an inredible journey. I'm so close to the body I've always wanted. I'm excited to be in maintenance and I know I can make it. It's not that far off now! 

Through the challenge I hope to get closer to my goals. I'm going to be working out and eating right for as long as my body will let me but I'm not going to stop now. This is not something I'm going to give up on. This is my lifestyle now. 

If you haven't already sign up for the Tone It Up bikini challenge. It's free, it's fun and you'll meet a hell of a lot of incredible women through it. 

I'm kicking it off with the new 5 Day Slim Down from the Beach Babe update to the diet plan =). No idea what I'm talking about? Click here :)

Tone It Up WILL change your life, I promise. 


  1. I'm excited to start too! going to get my goals written down and hit it hard! We can keep eachother in check :) I too would like to lose about 20lbs, so lets do it!

  2. The joy of living with other people not eating clean ... I can't resist the homemade goodies. Like my grandma's pies, dough raised in front of her kitchen fire, garnished with rhubarb from the back garden ... Or my father's waffles. So damn hard !
    Last year I lost 7.7lbs doing this challenge. I wasn't always eating clean, but I trained everyday. Aiming for 10-15lbs this year. Let's go girls ! :)
