Get Ready, Get Set…


Drop those extra pounds with Castle Hall Creative’s Sara Metka in our Summer Bridal Boot Camp

Hi all! Sara here!

I am so excited to share with all of you the changes I’ve been making in my personal life.

How I Started My Tone-It-Up Weight Loss/ Get Fit Journey

About three months ago, I decided that I needed to make a change and start taking care of myself. I began by downloading a fitness app that helped me to track the amount of calories I was eating vs. how many I was burning through exercise. I’ve done that before and it was working alright, but it just felt so… mathy. HAHA!

I wanted working out to feel fun and I wanted to try new recipes that were as tasty as they were pretty.

Finding ToneItUp

I went on Instagram and quickly found @ToneItUp. It’s a nutrition plan designed by @KarenaDawn and @KatrinaaScott. They send daily workouts and weekly motivational newsletters with workouts, recipes and inspirational stories. I was hooked! After three months, I had lost 20 pounds!!

3 Months & 20 Lbs Down!

Now that I am down 20 pounds, I am motivated to share what I’ve learned and bring others along with me on this journey.

@ToneItUp is starting a new Bikini Series on April 24th and I AM SO READY!

It’s an eight week program that is FREE to join!
Just sign up on their website at and you’re IN!

Your fellow Castle Hall Creative Team (Pattie, Jamie and I) will be updating our Instagram accounts with recipes and workouts that we’ve done along the way and we’d love for you to join us!

Now for the fun part… A GIVEAWAY!!!!

In order to be prepared, everyone needs a cute water bottle to take into the gym. Gotta stay hydrated, right!?!

I’ve designed this decal with my beach body in mind. The suntan, the long, wavy hair, the totally defined abs…  Luke Bryan… Sorry, back to the GIVEAWAY!
