As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I’m following the Tone It Up Bikini Series Challenge so I’ve been trying to prep lots of healthy meals this week! While I’m usually pretty good about eating my vegetables, I felt like I’d started going a little crazy with sugar and snacks lately so the Tone It Up challenge has been a nice way to reset!
I started the day off with my standard bowl of Greek yogurt with strawberries & blueberries and a giant mug of coffee.
Don’t mess with a good thing, right? I love Greek yogurt and the protein helped keep me full!
The Tone It Up plan recommends a morning snack but I had too many meetings at work so the day flew by and soon it was lunch. I don’t pack my lunch all the time but sometimes I’ll make this garlicky quinoa and kale salad ahead of time since it packs really well!
In the afternoon I snacked on a few kale chips (you can get the “cheesy” kale chip recipe here!) and some strawberries.
When I got home from work, we had to eat dinner pretty quickly because Alex had a softball game. I used a can of Amy’s vegetarian chili to start and then added some extra crushed tomatoes, black beans, spices, and avocado. I think I’d prefer this regular vegetarian chili from scratch but when you’re crunched for time, those cans of soup come in handy!
My goal is to curb my night time snacking but because we ate dinner pretty early, I had a spoonful of peanut butter when we got home from Alex’s softball game. A little nut butter is the easiest snack!
For my workout, I did this Tone It Up ab workout and I was definitely feeling it the next day. I love that their workouts are pretty fast and straightforward but they still make me sore! I’m so glad that Samantha & Veronica are keeping me accountable and the whole Tone It Up community is so supportive!
