Hi, Byrdie readers! It's Karena and Katrina from Tone It Up with your fall slim-down plan. Fall can be a tricky time to stay healthy. There are so many sweet treats and get-togethers that keeping to a fit lifestyle can be challenging. Katrina and I both love the holidays, and we didn’t want to feel deprived this season. If you feel the same, then enter our #TIU31 Day Challenge Meal Plan!
We spent countless hours creating the tastiest fall-inspired meals that make your taste buds want to do a happy dance while still reaching your fitness goals. We’re talking doughnut holes, muffins, mug cakes, stews, chili, and so much more. You can join the meal plan by becoming a member of the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan. You’ll receive all past and future editions, too.
We’ve also paired our amazing meals with some booty-kickin’ workouts to amp up your results. We share a complete week's worth of exercises on ToneItUp.com each week that pair perfectly with your meal plan to help you achieve strong arms, a chiseled waistline, and a seriously toned tushy.

Get ready to sculpt your core, triceps, and shoulders with the first move from our fall slim-down challenge. Begin in boat pose, with your core engaged and a dumbbell between both hands held by your chest. Lift the dumbbell above your head so arms are fully extended. Bend at the elbow and lower the dumbbell behind your head. Return to start. Complete 31 reps.
We love this move because it tones glutes, hamstrings, shoulders, and core. Begin in a floating tabletop position with knees a few inches off the ground and hands directly below shoulders. Push back into down dog and lift right leg into the air. Return to start and repeat on the opposite side. Complete 31 reps each side.
This move tones your glutes, quads, biceps, triceps, and shoulders. Begin with feet shoulder-width apart, and hold a pair of dumbbells by your side. Squat into a seated position until thighs are parallel to the ground. Make sure your knees don’t go past your toes. As you return to start, curl dumbbells toward chest. Next, raise arms so elbow is in line with shoulder and arm is bent at a 90-degree angle. Extend arms fully above head. Return to start. Complete 31 reps.
