#tiucheckin from this morning got in 2.5 mile run followed the #tiudailymoves 💪🏻 food was on point all day ! Except for dinner we went out for 🍔 but I got no sauce, no salt and had water 💦 with my meal ! All these day 2 check ins are amazing and so motivating thanks girls for keeping me going !!
Hi #tiuseattle !! I’m Karen. I discovered TIU in the summer of 2017, at the heaviest weight I have ever been, when I was very depressed and struggling with body confidence and motivation to do the things I love 💕⛰It took me until this past spring to re-clean up my nutrition and fully commit to consistently working out, but I am now ⬇️15 lbs and feel happier than I have been in YEARS. I want to keep up my momentum because I have some new exciting #lifegoals so I am 💯% on board with #summertoneup and would love to connect with you and cheer each other on. As a former sorority girl (Gamma Phi in the house!) my favorite part of #tiu is that it is #womensupportingwomen in a way that makes my 💜 warm and fuzzy every day, in addition to all the amazing sweating 😓 🥂Cheers to the best summer yet!
My workout happened this morning at 4:30am 🌅, a solid booty call with 25 min of stair stepper and 10 on the bike, then daily moves. 🙌🏼 After a long, stressful day yesterday and 11.5 hours at the office with no breaks or time for quality meals, and barely getting up from my desk because I was so busy, I was frustrated that the first day of the #summertoneup seemed to start off on such a negative low note. 😒
Today I was set on having a workout done no matter what work threw at me or how late I had to stay, so I checked it off first! ✅ Still another long day, but much more successful! Felt good to make a choice, even if waking up that early isn’t exactly easy, to proactively set myself up for success, which is ultimately worth the effort. 🏋🏻♀️ Do the a.m. thing again tomorrow? 🤔😏😋 @toneitup @toneitupnutrition @karenadawn @katrinaascott
Phew! Had such a busy day, but I think I managed to keep a good attitude, MOSTLY bc I worked out this morning! 😆 even a quick 20 mins of cardio makes such a huge difference to my mood all day. 💖 also happy bc I curled my hair today 😂 you guys I want to film some videos for IGTV, what do you guys want to see? Cooking videos? Chit chat about a topic? Makeup tutorials!? Give me shout 👇🏽 .
My meals started out healthy today but went downhill! I didn’t get a picture of my chicken burger, fries, and fried bread pudding at my friend’s dissertation defense celebration but it happened! Ah well. Tomorrow I’ll try and avoid the fried foods.
As for workouts, I did the dms and some gentle yoga in the morning. I may try and do namabooty this evening but I’m a little sleepy/still jet lagged. I am enjoying feeling like a morning person, though, and waking up easily at 5am 😉

If I had a dollar every time someone either 1) Ask me how I stay motivated to workout or 2) Tell me they can't workout because they aren't motivated enough, I'd be rich AF 💃🏾💸
There is a trick to staying motivated, and it’s not what you think. I just made a new vid giving you 5 tips to stay motivated with your workouts. Check it out via the link in my bio and let me know what you think!

Strawberry Shortcake Stack🍓These muffins are the perfect snack, especially when I’m craving a sweet treat😋Day 2 of the #summertoneup challenge has been going great🤗I am feeling re-energized and ready to kick butt! I definitely wasn’t on top of my game for the Bikini Series so I’m ready to get back on it and push myself harder👊🏻That’s what a challenge is all about, right?! I hope you all are having a great Tuesday!💕
Day ✌🏻 of the #summertoneup is underway! I was pleasantly surprised by my squat challenge results, and felt it during my lunchtime walk today 🤣 Doing well with my meals and keeping hydrated, which helps when it’s so hot! My phone said 88 but Google said 76. So it’s somewhere between that and feels HOT! Hope you ladies are having a great day!
Happy one year anniversary to me! 🎉One year ago I decided I wanted to start treating my body right and getting healthier, in all aspects of my life. Some motivating factors for me was my physical and mental health, and I was in search of a change. I made the decision to join @toneitup just as the #summertoneup was starting in 2017. At that time, I had no idea how much my life would change. Since I've joined @toneitup my mental and physical health has improved tremendously. Some of the people closest to me have even noticed a change and have commented on it. I have grown to love getting my sweat on 💦 and trying out new healthy recipes . I truly believe that investing in yourself is always worth it, and I am so happy that I did! Cheers to the #summertoneup 2018 may we be ambitious, motivated and reach new heights 💕
Swipe through for a little walk down memory lane! A decade married to the best person I know! 💗 So thankful for this love, life, and family of ours! Cheers to 10 years, my love! @bencohen1775 #marriagerocks
My favorite type of transformation? When it is really an Evolution. Over the last year I’ve had the privilege of getting to know this beautiful soul @terratonesitup Strong, Courageous, Motivated and the most genuine person you will ever meet! She tells it how it is, makes me laugh every time we talk, and always leaves me walking away full of positive energy.
These two pictures, taken a year apart, hardly show any visual difference but these women are so stronger than they were a year ago. We’ve remained close friends, pushed one another to become & stay our best selves & supported one another through the hard and happy times. Physically we look the same, but our smiles are bigger, our hearts are fuller and are friendships more plentiful thanks to the @toneitup community that has allowed us to connect with so many amazing women!
If you haven’t connected with your local community - do it now! The #summertoneup challenge is the perfect time to connect with a new TIU friend! .
