This week, I did Tone It Up videos for five days. One of my days off was active recovery and I took one day completely off. I decided not to stick with a specific workout schedule, such as the Tone It Up Bikini Challenge, and simply choose the videos I felt like doing each day. I am starting to get more comfortable making my own selections now that I have so many videos in my arsenal to chose from.
Tone It Up has been made into a brand and a business with a similar approach as Blogilates: trying to hook fangirls by posting free videos and recipes online, and then selling them (expensive) DVDs and workout gear. Tone It Up takes the food component a step further and sells branded protein powder (which they conveniently put into their recipes) and a very expensive meal plan that is only available online. If I’m paying $150 for a cookbook, I expect a hard copy at the very least! Needless to say, I won’t be purchasing their overpriced PDF, especially when so many amazing recipes are available for free online.
In terms of a personal update, I have decided to take three weeks off from my awful job in December, which is exactly what I need to rest, relax, and recover. I have a lot of plans regarding things I want to accomplish, some of which are for my blog, and I am really looking forward to being home with B and having extra cuddle time (unfortunately JP can’t take time off right now).

How organized are you when it comes to planning workouts, making meal plans, and preparing your food in advance? Are you able to just “go with the flow” or do you need a solid schedule to follow?
