Recap of TIU Love your Body challenge !!

This weekend has been pretty exciting. We had my parents at our place. We went for a walk in the evening and i did the Love your body Yoga in the morning. On Sunday i took rest and prepared for the week ahead. This week was the final week of the Tone It Up Love Your Body series and I am happy to have been consistent and stuck with this challenge.  

There has been a lot of learning from this challenge. Loving my body is something I always struggle with, and several activities as part of the challenge were really encouraging. This challenge started off at the right time when i was looking to tone up after new year's day. The cardio challenge between New Year's day and Valentine's day was something that helped me continue my walks and run in combination with strength training routines.

Recap of TIU Love your Body challenge :


1) Love My Body :
This was something that i really struggled with.  This is something that I need to continually work on.Several activities throughout the challenge like self talk, writing letter for yourself, pampering yourself really helped me with this aspect.

2) Clean Eating :
Although it is preferable to follow the Tone It Up Nutrition plan, i did not follow the plan. However i did eat clean most days and allowed myself to cheat on date nights. This helped me achieve a 80-20 balance.

3) Complete #100byVDayChallenge :
I consistently kept up with my walks, runs and HIIT and wanted to somehow complete this challenge. When i checked back, i was thrilled to realize that i completed 168 miles, which I am pretty happy about within 6 weeks!

Overall, I am very happy with my results from this challenge. It was the perfect kick-start to 2015 and am proud to have stuck with this challenge.

What next :

While doing the Tone it up yoga, i realized that i had to work on my flexibility  and yoga was the best way for it. After reading several bloggers and my friend Jill, i came to know of the 30 day Yoga With Adriene challenge and decided to go with this challenge for a month along my walks/runs to improve my flexibility.

After my first challenge on toning, I am excited to see where the program leads me and hopefully gain a lot more confidence in improving my flexibility!
