BBG 12 Week Update

Bikini Body Guide

I  started a new exercise program called BBG or Bikini Body Guide over 3 months ago. There is an app, called  SWEAT, that guides you through the workouts, even timing them out for you.  It’s really simple to use, and, you can do most of the workouts from anywhere, which makes it ideal for travel.
I also can easily do it at home.  To learn more about BBG and the SWEAT app, be sure to check out this post here (after week 1).

Changes I’ve Noticed

From the side view (above)… the difference is much more noticeable. I definitely have noticed a huge difference in my tummy. My legs look more toned in the thigh area.
I’ve lost some fat around the rib cage/bust area, and my bras are loose. My weight difference is VERY minimal, but I didn’t set out to lose weight. I was more interested in strength and toning. Muscle also weighs more than fat. I went from 115 to 110.

The Program

To find out more about the specifics of the program, be sure to read this blog, covering the basics. I remember in the beginning, I could barely do a lunge. My body wasn’t used to more traditional exercises after years of Tracy Anderson. Now, I can easily do lunges, squats, and any other exercise she throws at us. The only issue I have with the program…is that it keeps introducing new exercise equipment like barbells.  I feel like I could have a whole gym in my house by now. Instead of scooping up all the gear, I’m simply improvising.

Eating

In the last week or so, I’ve fallen off the healthy eating wagon, and added in a bit more sugar, but I’ll get back on it!
I have to eat what I want, but in moderation… otherwise… forget it! The minute my mind thinks I can’t have something, it’s the very thing I crave. I can’t do extreme diets or restriction so again I just use moderation. I eat sugar. And, with bread I just limit to 1 or 2 slices of whole grain bread per day. Avocado toast with egg whites is a go-to. I eat a lot of oatmeal (Think Thin is my favorite). Between meals, I drink green tea and snack on apples, and pears. I also really like yogurt with granola and honey. For dinner, I eat a lot of chicken, baked, pan fried, grilled with broccoli, sweet potatoes and salads. For me the key is… NO DIET. The D word gets me into trouble. What is your favorite healthy meal? Share in the comments below.

Will I Stick With This?

There is no question this program works and I love having the option while traveling, but I’m not sure I’ll stick with it.
I think as summer approaches, I will do more outdoors like hiking, jogging, biking, etc. We moved here to Telluride to enjoy the outdoors… so that is definitely a must again this summer.
I also want to try pilates. I haven’t really done pilates before, only Tracy Anderson…so I’m thinking about signing up for classes.

I’m glad I have the SWEAT app to turn to, and use while traveling, but again not sure I will continue through the summer.

What is your favorite type of exercise? Do you have a program you swear by?? Or do you mix things up?? Please share in the comments below.

  1. Hi Erin,
    I do pilates 4-5 times a week and I love it. It makes me super flexible and strong and the best part is it is a fantastic way to relieve stress.
    Try it! Cheers, Deborah

    1. It’s on my list for sure and there is a woman here who teaches who is supposed to be AMAZING. I’m on it! Thanks, Deborah! Erin xo

  2. Hey Erin, you look great (and you did before too!)
    You mentioned you’d like to try Pilates – check out Lisa Corsello. She mixes Pilates with short, high-intensity bursts and some work with light weights. She has a couple great free PopSugar workouts that you can find on YouTube. Here’s one of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LrB4CjpC-F8&t=960s

    1. LOVE this…thank you for sharing!! I love when people like you share such helpful information! Erin xo

  3. I do yoga 5 times a week! I love the strength that I am building with my own body. I will be 65 in a couple of months and can do headstand and hand stand! The strength at this BOLD age is awesome. Of course, throughout the stages of my life, I did aerobics, walking (when the boys did sports practices) turned into marathon running in my early 50’s. Injuries had me turning to yoga. Namaste.

    1. Okay…you are a ROCK STAR! And, I’m SO impressed. Clearly, you like yoga. I can’t wait to try it! I did a few marathons too and hurt my knee while training for my fourth. I haven’t had the desire to start up again. Thanks for sharing your amazing story, Charlotte! You GO, 60 years BOLD! Erin xo

  4. I’m a new subscriber and am looking back at some previous posts. Would really love to know more about your living space from where you do some posts, specifically your living room, beautiful sectional, etc. Have you ever done a post on your home? Would love to see it. Thank you.
