Congrats to all of my friends who completed Week 1 of the Tone It Up Bikini Series! One thing I’m personally super proud of is the fact that I did all of my morning ‘booty calls’ and only had 1 day where I didn’t hit 10k steps (my weekly total was 80k though so I made up for itπŸ˜‰ ).

Tone It Up Bikini Series Week 1 Meals

While most of my meals were clean, one of the things I’m still working on is choosing healthy options when eating out or getting together with friends. While I didn’t drink at our work BBQ, I may have had one too many churros and cookies–but I didn’t have a donut that morning at work, soooo #win! As I’ve said before, I’m all about balance. I was happy with the decisions I made eating out — which was only 3 times — an Acai Bowl, a Tuna & Salmon Poke Bowl, and this amazing Carne Asada plate from Pueblo. BUT if anyone has any tips for staying healthy at work events, friends visiting, the weekends, etc., then I’m all ears!

New Bikini Series Nutrition Plan

So far, I’m really enjoying the new recipes from the Bikini Series TIU nutrition plan. They are super light, include seasonal ingredients, and it’s always fun trying new things. A few of my favorite meals from week 1 were the Tahini Tray Dinner, the Coconut Mango Pancakes, the Chinese Chicken Salad, and the Pina Colada Overnight Oats! I even put some pineapple in the Chinese Chicken salad –delicious!

Bikini Series Meal Plan Week 2

For Week 2, I’m prepping some Blueberry Chia Muffins, lots of veggies and hummus, the new frozen Cauliflower based smoothies (a little nervous about these!), some Chickpea Salad Sandwiches and Sweet Potato Buddha BowlsπŸ™Œ  Since I’ll be going home for the weekend to celebrate my sister’s birthday and an early Mothers Day, I’m also trying to plan ahead for some easy, healthy options while spending time with them including: Superfood Parfaits (my mom almost always has yogurt stocked in the fridge), fresh fruit (she always buys lots of bananas & berries tooπŸ“), some protein bars (I’ll bring these in my carry on), and some nuts. While I may not be able to keep everything 100% TIU approved, at least I’m doing my best to have some healthy options on hand should hunger strike.

I’m also really excited to BBQ and jut relax in our backyard if the weather is nice, it’s one of my favorite things to do when I’m home–sip on some wine or a beer around the patio table lost in conversation and having a home cooked meal! What to do you like doing when you go home?

  1. shrimp, sweet potato, avocado, and green onion. that sounds like my most favorite things together on a plate. is that in the BS nutrition plan or are you making it up yourself? either way, pictures and a review would be great! happy week 2!

    • I totally made that one up based on the ingredients I have leftover in my fridge haha I figure it’s pretty TIU approved though since it’s a protein, healthy fat, and I know you’re not technically supposed to eat carbs in M5 but as a runner, I need to have some healthy carbs to fuel for my morning miles πŸ™‚ I’ll take more pictures and share for next week too. How’s the challenge going for you?

  2. Nice! I signed up for this too but I have to eat a lot less complex carbs than they do…my tip is stay away from carbs like rice, potatoes, pasta, tortillas, etc when you eat out

    • All of my favorite foods! As a runner, I find the hardest thing for me to stay away from is the potatoes at home since I love sweet potatoes. I don’t usually have rice or pasta when I eat out but I do love me some tortilla chips and salsa…Definitely need to work on limiting that and the urge to have french fries!
