I'm going to Bootcamp...again!

Well hello again. Things have been pretty crazy around here. Some how we are less than a month away from our wedding (seriously, how did that happen) and we are in full-on wedding mode. I am soaking in every moment because I know it is going to be over before we know it.

Anyways, with little time left before I have to walk down the aisle in my white dress, it's time to start Round 4 of Best Body Bootcamp. You already know I loved Tina Reale's Best Body Bootcamp and I am excited to start it back up today after the last couple of weeks "off" from BBB.


At first I was a little nervous about being "off" from BBB. What was I going to do? Was I going to be motivated? Would I loose the muscle definition I had just worked hard for? I was worried how hard it was going to be to stay active and in the shape without BBB and through the holidays. But you know what? I made it work! Did I workout as much? No, but the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge helped to motivate me as well as the upcoming wedding and dress fittings!

So what did I do?

  • I stuck to the same "routine" that Tina had used for BBB - alternating days of strength/circuit training with cardio and core work.
  • At first, I tried some workouts from Jamie Eason's Live Fit Training Program but something about it just doesn't keep my attention the same way. Plus they take longer! 
  • Thanks to Tina's help, I went back to one of the phase's of BBB from round 3 and used that as a guide! Some days I would incorporate additional arm/core work or some days I would increase the time on the treadmill. On the "cardio" days, I would find some routine from Pinterest or try something different like spin or yoga.

We were mailed phase one workouts last week and I was excited to see an entirely new workout routine. I didn't think that was possible given all the variety that was given to us in last round, but Tina is just that amazing.

Last round, I didn't take any measurements or pictures beforehand, but did notice a positive change in my body. This round I was excited to see Tina included a fitness test for us to perform before starting Phase One. Yesterday was my "rest" day, but I headed to the gym to complete the fitness test and look forward to checking my progress through out the rounds! I feel like I am in pretty good shape right now and feel good about my fitness test, so it will definitely be interesting to see the change throughout the weeks and to push myself more!


  1. This is my first time doing BBB and I'm excited!

  2. Hope you love it just as much as I loved round 4!
