BodyBoss Review – My Workout Routine

I put a survey up on my IG story this week asking you guys what you wanted to read this week, and it was a 50/50 tie between my workout routine and my favorite workout clothes. So I’ll be doing both! Thank you to everyone who voted!

My workout routine has to be on point right now because my wedding is 8 short months away. A few months ago, I came across BodyBoss on Facebook and started reading into it more. I wanted a workout routine that offered some variety, that was relatively short and was for full-body workouts. This hit all of my categories and had great reviews.

When I started this workout routine, I was 130 pounds. I had gained 12 lbs over the previous 6 months. I was not overweight by any means, but it was definitely noticeable to me and showed in how my clothes fit. I felt uncomfortable and knew something needed to change. I also wanted to just be more healthy overall. I knew I wasn’t eating well enough and that partnered with my lack of exercise caused me to slide into some unhealthy habits.

Need more fitness tips? I’ve got you.

Since starting this program, I’ve lost 8 pounds and I’ve gained some muscle and definition in the process. I went from not having any energy at all to actually looking forward to working out.

So, what is BodyBoss?

A 12-week work out system designed using HIIT (high intensity interval training) workouts to get your heart rate up and burn calories quickly. Mondays and Wednesdays are the HIIT workouts, Tuesdays and Wednesdays are Cardio days, and Friday is a “Power Up” for the whole body.

Getting your heart rate up for the HIIT workouts does something they call the “Boss Effect”, which is when your body is still burning fat AFTER you finish the workouts due to the intensity of the training.

BodyBoss also has a 4 week pre-training routine to complete, because the workouts can be pretty intense when you first start out if you haven’t worked out in a while (like me!). I have no problem admitting I definitely took part in the pre-training workouts and it really helped prepare me for the full workouts down the road.

If you really follow the system (after the pre-training) it takes 12 weeks to transform your body. I saw noticeable results after 3 weeks, which was motivation to keep going. Their Instagram page also shows a lot of people (of all shapes and sizes) and their transformations as well.

They also just came out with a healthy eating guide as part of the package!

    I’m due to have our second little one any time now and I had just reached where I wanted to be weight/size-wise after the first kiddo when I got pregnant with this one. We are so excited to meet the new addition to our family but I am also anxious to start a workout program that I will see results with. I’m always skeptical of weight-loss programs and spending money on something you only hope will work. You had great results and I love the idea of this program being able to fit into a busy schedule with two little ones! If you do a giveaway, please let me know!

    Hi, just came across this article you wrote. I have a similar situation. I have about 12 lbs to lose. I work out 5-6 times a week and I just can’t budge the scale. I’m thinking maybe my body is too used to what I have been doing and needs a change like Body Boss. Or it could be that I’m getting ready to turn 67….. nah….I’m not going down without a fight. Lol

  • “Maybe the life you’ve always wanted is buried under everything you own” -Joshua Becker

This quote hits home because I never realized how cluttered our apartment was and how that clutter, even though it was organized, was holding us back in unexpected ways. 
This weekend we re-arranged our house a bit and I’m so in love with the results. We used to have our computer desks both in our bedroom. Although our room is pretty big, having so much furniture made it feel small and cramped. Not at all relaxing. 
Since I’ve been getting rid of things like it’s my job, I sold all of our guest room furniture except the bed, leaving a whole lot of space in there. We moved the desks into that room and it made both rooms feel like a whole new space!! It’s amazing what happens when you let go of things. Happier, quieter, less cluttered. Have a wonderful Monday!

Happy Friday!!! I’m so excited for the weekend 🙌🏻I love this quote because people sometimes think having and buying more will make them better somehow. Happier, more stylish, cooler, more liked. .

Sadly, in high school, this was true. When I started wearing brand name clothes, people literally treated me completely different. I got invited to more things, different people started talking to me. It was crazy. But those people were not my real friends and I literally haven’t spoken to any of them since high school. So, goes to show how those things don’t actually matter!! Have an awesome weekend 😘
  • In honor of #nationalproposalday I want to give a shoutout to my handsome husband @jacob.thompson87 for totally nailing my engagement ring 💜😍
.
 I knew I wanted something unique with a colored stone. I didn’t want a big expensive diamond or a ring that would look like anyone else’s. Jake knows my favorite color is purple so he got me a lavender sapphire with a petal halo. I also love my simple twisted wedding band. I took this picture on our honeymoon because I was so happy to finally be able to wear them together! I love how they complement each other. I never want to take them off. Have a wonderful Friday Eve!
  • “Forget the Sales price. Everything is 100% off when you don’t buy it.” .
As a fun challenge for myself, I’m going to do a shopping ban. If you’re familiar with the book “The Year of Less”, Cait goes an entire year without buying anything unnecessary (actually she ends up doing a second year after). I just finished reading it and I love the idea of not buying anything new that I don’t need. 
While I’ve been purging, I’ve seen just how much I really have. There isn’t anything I need. The sales price used to get me. That seductive little red sticker would catch my attention and convince me I needed that piece in my closet because it’s such a great deal. BUT it’s not if you don’t need it. Save your money for things you truly love and put thought into buying, not impulse buys that will hang unworn in your closet.
  • Have you ever been so excited about something that every time you talk to someone who you see could benefit from it, you just want to tell them every single thing about it because you just want to help them? That’s how I feel about minimalism and living with less. It’s changed my life and my mindset in so many ways and all I want to do is tell people about it. But I don’t, unless they ask. 
You can’t force change on people. They have to come to their own conclusions in their own time. They have to have their own inspiration *ah ha!* moments like you had. You can talk until you’re blue in the face, but they won’t HEAR you until they’re ready. The best way to show them how great something is is by being an example! Be the change you wish to see. Maybe you can inspire others with your happiness. Happy Tuesday!
  • “If you don’t have time for things that matter, stop doing things that don’t.” - @bemorewithless .
This weekend (and in general, lately) I took a little break from social media. Since I started my new job, this weekend was the first actual weekend Jake and I have spent together since we got back from our honeymoon in October. Crazy, right?! It was wonderful to spend time with family and get stuff done together and just enjoy the time we had. Making time for what’s important is so crucial to your mental health and the health of your relationships! If you’re too busy, remove the things that aren’t actually important and make time for the things that are.
