I’ve been following it for 2 weeks and have already noticed a huge difference.

Your Top 5 Tips to Always Be Bikini Ready…
- Nutrition is key! This is the most important part of your lifestyle and it’s why we follow the Tone It up Nutrition Plan. What you put in your body affects your mood, energy and lifespan! Working out and staying active is super important too, but your meals need to be Lean, Clean & Green to get the results you want. This means tons of veggies, fresh fruits, lean protein and healthy fats! Say no to processed foods and stick to whole, real nutritious foods as much as you can! Stay consistent and remember it’s what you do most of the time that matters most! Abs are made in the kitchen 🙂
- Drink Up! You know the importance of staying hydrated! Water helps speed up your metabolism, keeps you from feeling hungry between meals and even helps your body burn fat! As a bonus, staying hydrated contributes to glowing, beautiful skin!
- Make sure you’re getting enough protein! Getting enough lean protein throughout the dayis a must. Women need protein! And don’t worry, it will not bulk you up! It speeds up your metabolism
and balances your blood sugar levels, preventing insulin spikes, which can cause weight gain. Protein is made up of amino acids that your body needs ~ it helps your body build sexy, lean muscle and keeps your nails, skin and hair looking healthy. We love adding Perfect Fit Protein to smoothies, coffee drinks and even using it as flour substitute in baking recipes!
- Morning Workouts! This is your Booty Call and we want you to wake up and sweat with us each and every morning! Morning exercise gets your body moving, sweating and geared up to burn calories all day long. The best part is that getting your sweat on first thing in the AM burns a higher percentage of fat than any other time. Most importantly, doing something earlier in the day ensures that nothing comes between you and your health & fitness goals! Set that alarm and get moving! Everyone’s doing it 😉

Begin in a plie squat, knees in line with your ankles. Sit back as far as you can and quickly
jump up onto your toes into a jack (just like jumping jacks). This is a plyometric move, so
remember to be soft on your feet 🙂

1 packet Perfect Fit
½ banana, mashed
½ Tbs. Almond milk
¼ cup egg whites
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ cup strawberries
Mash banana with almond milk. Gradually stir in the other ingredients listed above. Spray your skillet with cooking spray and turn to medium low heat. Slowly and evenly pour the batter into the pan. Cook for 3 to 5
minutes on one side until you see bubble starting to rise to the surface of your pancake. Using a spatula, carefully lift the edge and take a peek. If the underside of your pancake is golden brown, it’s ready to flip. Carefully flip your pancake and cook for another 3 minutes on the other side until both sides are golden brown and the
pancake is cooked through. Remove from heat and top with strawberries. Drizzle with real maple syrup, honey or agave and serve!
