Tone It Up Bikini Series 2016: Week 7 Recap

Happy Friday, friends!

Even though I haven’t been updating my Tone It Up Bikini Series progress as regularly on the blog and Instagram, I promise you I’ve still been doing the workouts and about 85% of the nutrition plan. Over the past few weeks we’ve been really busy with camping, BBQs, parties and other fun social stuff, plus taking care of the new addition…

… so I haven’t had much time to blog and share my experience so far.

Thanks to said social stuff and parties, my nutrition the past few weeks hasn’t been great. Well, from Sunday to Thursday I’ve been on point. But Fridays and Saturdays have been another story. I’ve only been slightly below maintenance these past three weeks, so my progress has pretty much stalled. I’m definitely feeling the Pilates/barre workouts and some of the moves are getting easier, which I’m happy about, and my core is getting stronger. But I’m still overdoing it a bit on the weekend and paying the price digestion-wise for it. I’m bloated like 50% of the time thanks to not eating Bri-friendly foods on the weekends, so it’s really hard to tell if my clothes are fitting a bit better. I also have another potential health issue going on that’s semi-related, and I’ll blog more about soon once I have a clear diagnosis. Ugh.

Love following up my TIU workouts with a treadmill hike!

Even though this week coming up is technically the last week of the challenge, I’m going to keep going for another three weeks (and, in fact, the Bikini Series is starting up for a round 2 after next week if anyone else is interested in joining in!) until I take measurements again.

This weekend will be a more fun socializing with a BBQ with my besties (I stocked up on healthy snacks today in preparation, so hopefully I won’t overdo it this time!), and a fun Oiselle VoleΓ© meet-up run and coffee with two local birds I’ve never met before but live in my neighbourhood!

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!

Have you ever done a nutrition program? Did you stick to it the whole time? What are you up to this weekend?
