I'm going to stray off topic this morning for The Fit Dish to check-in with my progress with the Bikini Series 8-week challenge.
I kind of just jumped right into this challenge with no idea of how it was going to go and no real experience following a plan with the Tone It Up girls.
I'M HAVING SO MUCH FUN WITH THIS CHALLENGE!
I've been pretty good about following their workout plans for weeks 1 and 2.
I'm not so good about following their evening challenges, which are more mindful and less physical. Easier for me to skip.
One of their evening challenges the first day was to write some goals for the 8 weeks.
I drew a blank and skipped the goal setting. I wasn't sure what I wanted to accomplish - other than to look
After following along for 2 weeks, here are some goals I've come up with for the remaining 6 weeks.
**Complete a Tone It Up HIIT video without any breaks**
I'm loving all of the HIIT videos I've tried so far, but they are a struggle for me! Especially when they throw in burpees. I would love to be able to HIIT it up without any pause or mini breaks.
**Jump rope for 1 minute without tripping**
I did one of the workouts called Jump Your Heart Out, and I think the best I did was maybe 10-15 seconds without tripping on the jump rope. I definitely want to be a better jump roper. :)
**Noticeably tone up my arms and belly**
This is is my least concrete goal. I didn't want to put a number on it, because dropping numbers on the scale or even losing inches might not get me the overall effect I'm looking for. But I'll know it when I see it. :)
Speaking of numbers, here's what the first 2 weeks got me. I know, I know. I just said it wasn't about the numbers, but numbers can still be fun. :)
|Weight||160.4 lbs||158.8 lbs|
I'm really pleased with my results so far after the first 2 weeks, and I'm excited to see how it all comes together by the end!
