tone it up | two week update

two weeks ago i made the decision to get my act together and get fit.

i've been following the tone it up gals for several months now doing their free videos online, but still not paying much attention to my nutrition...and as it turns out...nutrition is pretty key if you want to change the look of your bod.

and people - i want a hot bod.

maybe not even a hot bod. maybe just a bod that doesn't jiggle quite so much. i can get on board with that. oh yeah...and i want to be able to suck in my gut. after my two girls...i just kind of have this pooch that hangs there. i had a good game of skinny-fat going on. anyway...

as i was saying, i have been following the tone it up gals for a bit now and then i read about their eight week #bikinichallenge. i knew i wanted to hop on that train.

eight weeks? i can do that.

plus at exactly the eight week point i will be attending an awesome wedding in santa barbara...and i don't want to be the ugly family from idaho. it's a little extra motivation.

we are officially two weeks into the tone it up bikini challenge and so far...i think i'm pickin' up what they're puttin' down.

before the challenge started i took my measurements -


MID-SECTION | 32 inches

HIPS | 36.5 inches

ARMS | 10.5 inches

THIGHS | 22 inches


MID-SECTION | 30 inches - two inch loss

HIPS | 35.5 inches - one inch loss

ARMS | 10 inches - 1/2 inch loss

THIGHS | 21 inches - 1 inch loss

see! there's totally been progress! i'm into it.

my farmer is into it too.


  1. Looking good Karli! Definitely 80% about what we eat....I can totally rock skinny fat but if I want to get the weight off in those hard to lose places I have to change my fuel source.

  2. Amazing results so far! I've been following the program too and I am obsessed. I've lost weight and inches, you can actually see the difference and most of all, I can feel the difference in my body! I am in love!

  3. Woo hoo! Amazing results so far!

  4. Congrats on the loss! I really need to measure myself but I always do it wrong! One time I will get a measurement then like the same day I will do it again just to make sure I'm doing it in the right place and the measurement is off! Oh and the picture of your farmer so funny!

  5. You are lookin' good girl! Keep up the great work! And give me some of your motivation :)

  6. Yay yay yay!! So excited for you and your progress!!

  14. Those results are great! I probably need to get my butt in gear now and do something like this program you're on...Sigh. Can't we just all eat donuts and fries and be supermodel skinny while we do it?

  15. You look great! I love TIU too and they have yummy recipes!
