Fitness Friday - 8 Week Challenge

It's the first week of the new year and with that comes many different challenges, diet bets, detoxes etc. I am doing the 8 Week TIU and Self Challenge. Since I am a nutrition plan, aka, paid member of TIU I received the eight week meal plan to go along with this challenge.

I leave for Mexico in just over four weeks, so I am going to try with all my might to stick to this plan.

Since I live alone and only grocery shop for myself, I decided to stick with the same food for a week and change it up week by week. I'm not someone who really gets bored with chicken and veggies and since I'm packing my lunch it leaves me plenty of time to hop over to the gym for a 45 minute sweat session.

Week 1 Meal Plan:

M1: Perfect fit tea and multivitamin

Breakfast: Egg scramble with spinach and a banana

M3: Two clementines

Lunch: Tuna wrap made with greek yogurt and a handful of greens followed up with an apple

M5: 1/4 Cup mixed unsalted nuts

Dinner: Teriyaki chicken, brown rice and a vegetable of my choice, usually broccoli or green beans


Took the opportunity to do this quick HIIT routine over lunch. Finished the day with warrior sculpt.

Tone It Up: Total Body Tone

40 Minutes of cardio!
Tone It Up: Exclusive Booty and Abs



All in all a very successful week one in the books! I sweated my butt off in the gym, ate 85% clean with the exception of a wonky Thursday and a very early Friday meeting. I can already feel a difference in the way that my body feels, and that helps keep the momentum going.

Bring on week 2!
