I’m in love with the “TIU” or Tone It Up girls. They are gorgeous, have great online workouts and I bought their meal plan this past summer. They have a new show on Bravo starting in January too!! When I bought their meal plan, I had looked at it for almost a year and just decided to go for it. They have different types (regular, gluten free, vegan, etc.) and I got the Pescetarian version (seafood only – no meat). I wasn’t eating much meat then, so I thought this would be good for me. I’ve never eaten red meat and chicken has been an on and off thing for me for years. Well, lately I’ve been “on” with chicken and eating it a couple times a week. Sometimes I just get grossed out by it and go a couple years without eating it! So I kinda wish I would have gotten the “regular” plan, but they send out so many updates that include chicken dishes it is fine.
Obsessed with them. They are so pretty!!
I got a few meal ideas from the plan over the summer, but I never really stuck to it and said I was going to really do the meal plan. Well, I bought a little notebook the other week and I’ve really tried to stick to their smaller 5 meals a day plan for the past week. This wasn’t easy over Thanksgiving, but I really only messed up one or two days. I’m trying to drink lots and lots of water and eat carbs earlier in the day. I also like writing down my exercise for the day in this book. I don’t keep track of how many calories I eat, but I have been writing down how many I’ve burned from exercise according to my Polar FT4. That really motivates me!
I was out of my Vega chocolate protein, so I decided to order the TIU “Perfect Fit” protein for something new. It is AMAZING. It got here so fast too! I always avoid whey protein because of the lactose thing, so I always bought Vega. They have a blend of brown rice and pea protein. I always could taste the pea protein. The TIU protein is all brown rice protein, completely organic and only a few ingredients. It also tastes amazing. I’m really happy with it and using it in my blender ball shaker with just almond milk, or in smoothies or for a TIU pancake.
I highly recommend it! It tastes great and I really want to try the vanilla now!
