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

  • Enjoying a wonderful long weekend trip to Wisconsin visiting Jake’s older brother and enjoying allll the cheese curds 🧀
. 
I’m working on limiting my social media activity and only taking one picture to capture a moment instead of 30 trying to get them perfect. It’s been a nice side effect of minimalism and it’s helping me learn to not be so concerned with what others think, stop playing the comparison game, and live in the moment. I’m much more relaxed and happy without all the unnecessary drama and stress of the world. Definitely recommend trying it out if you struggle with anxiety like I do ❤️
  • I’m not a big selfie person so here’s one with my little ham to make it better while I show you my new hair🤳🏻
. 💇🏻‍♀️ I’ve cut off 8+ inches of my hair since my wedding. This last cut over the weekend was the big finale, an additional 4 inches off. Doing it slowly made it less of a shock and helped me confirm it was really what I wanted. This is the shortest my hair has been since I was 5!! My mom used to cut it and gave me a mullet once sooo I’ve kept it long ever since 🤣🤦🏻‍♀️ My sister @juliestanbridge loooves to tell that story to anyone that’ll listen. I was definitely ready for a change and I’m thrilled with this length. .

I’m really enjoying the simplicity of less makeup and less hair care lately 😌 it takes me 15 minutes to wake up and get ready every morning, including making coffee and my lunch! I feel more beautiful in my own skin which has been a life long struggle, laugh lines and all. This simple life is more than I ever expected in so many ways and keeps getting better as I go. How could your life be better with less?
  • Today is a happy excuse to share some wedding photos ❤️ .

I’d be so lost without my mom and sister. I’m so blessed to have such a close relationship with them both. It wasn’t always this way but I’m glad that as I grew up, I realized how much I needed them both. They’re my rocks. .

I’m thankful for my mother-in-law because she’s accepted me wholeheartedly into the family and she raised my amazing husband and taught him how to treat me. Not everyone is so lucky to actually love their in-laws so I really appreciate this and don’t take it for granted!
.

I’m thankful for my Godmother, Kim, my best friend Courtney’s momma who is literally like a second mom to me and I love her whole family dearly ❤️ they’re a constant blessing. .

And Happy Mother’s Day to the moms out there like me who hold their babies in their hearts instead of their arms 👼🏻 You are celebrated today, too! #happymothersday
  • Getting rid of the extra stuff in our house we never used has been the best way of keeping it clean and organized. Everything has a place. There are still pictures on the walls and decor items on the shelves, but I don’t feel the need to have EVERY INCH decorated like I used to. It’s nice to have more open space, it looks and feels bigger! .

I always thought I was disorganized, but the truth is I just had too much stuff. Because let’s be real, if organizing your stuff actually worked, wouldn’t you be done by now?
  • Happy Saturday ❤️ I’ve been super inspired to write lately so I’m working on multiple blog posts. It feels so good to write again.
.

When I started talking about minimalism instead of fashion, my engagement dropped dramatically. Like, 70% probably. It was pretty upsetting in the beginning, not gonna lie. .

But likes and comments and followers aren’t what matter. The people that followed me before followed me for something I’m not talking about anymore, so that change is really ok with me. I’m appealing to a new audience now and I love that. I want to provide value to you guys, it’s the only thing that motivates me. I don’t post just to post anymore. I just had to realize that the people that are left still want to hear what I have to say, so I keep going for you! Thank you for being here ❤️
  • I’ve really been enjoying my time away from social media, but I also still enjoy mindlessly scrolling through pretty pictures sometimes. Life is all about balance. I see a lot of my fellow bloggers also struggle with the balance of creating a successful page and knowing when to give ourselves a break. It can be overwhelming! .

I put up a new blog post today about why I decided to give up on my shopping ban and instead focus on a LOW buy year and not a NO buy year. The main reason is it makes more sense for my life because things have come up and I don’t want to guilt myself into not buying something if it will make my life a bit easier. Minimalism is not about deprivation, it’s about intentionality. You can see the post at DaniThom.com via the link in my bio ❤️
