New Bikini Workouts! Bikini Challenge at Tone It Up

Happy Thirsty Thursday!!
Water increases your metabolism so much that if you’re chronically dehydrated, it can mean up to an 8 pound weight gain (or more) per year. No wonder weight creeps on! Your challenge for today… & for the remaining 5 weeks of the Bikini Challenge is to drink at least half your body weight in ounces of water PER DAY. Ex: 150lb = 75 oz of water. This doesn’t mean all at once ;)… it means throughout the whole day!
We can all mistake thirst for hunger too, which leads to eating more unnecessary calories, so it’s important to always have water handy. Can you do it? Get that Bikini CALENDAR out & mark it to remind yourself to drink at least your calculated water per day.
Yesterday’s challenge was to do your TONING CIRCUIT (see below). Today… your challenge is to try something new! You won’t regret it. Try a new DVD, a local Pilates Studio, Yoga… a workout video on ToneItUp.TV… anything! PS- Loving all your recipe posts on YouTube, Twitter & Facebook!! April 6th…

Some of you have been asking if you should start the Bikini Challenge over if you’ve slipped up. It’s okay to miss a workout or if you slipped up on your eating habits. That’s what this is all about!! It happens to us all the time too. Our suggestion, pick yourself back up, feel fresh in the morning and get it going again :) Don’t get discouraged or frustrated… we’re all in the same boat. Being healthy is for you, your family, disease prevention, to have more energy, healthy hormones, to be around your loved ones longer & beyond!!
