Hellooooo, Bombshell!


Hey, guess what everybody! I’m a Bombshell!

Now, before you cast me aside as a serious egomaniac, allow me to explain… Winking smile 

As every single one of you knows – I enjoy a good workout. But over the past few months, I found myself wanting a workout that was more systematic. (A+B = C) I was tired of trying to plan my own routines or figure out which DVD to use today. I wanted a “systematic” approach. I also wanted something that would hold me ACCOUNTABLE. (Because even workout junkies need a swift kick in the shorts too!)

Enter Brazil Butt Lift {crazy name, I know!} and P90X!

Like P90X, Brazil Butt Lift (BBL) is a program produced by Beachbody. I’d originally purchased BBL back in April as a late birthday present from me to me but never opened/used it due to lack of time. (Working 4-5 jobs has a way of doing that. Funny, right??) And as I’ve mentioned before, I’d received P90X a few years prior, but never completed it in full. But after starting P90X again, then shortly thereafter discovering a cool HYBRID schedule featuring both programs….Well, needless to say, I was in heaven. Winking smile 

Granted, my work schedules made life crazy to say the least, but I’m committed and determined to see myself through to the finish line. In fact, there’s a short BBL workout called “Bum Bum Rapido” as well as a set of TriAngle Training Cards featuring exercises from the program that I’d use on those days when I had VERY little time!

And slowly but surely, I’m being rewarded with a firmer, leaner, tighter EVERYTHING. (Hee hee!)

Then right around Christmas, I decided to delve into the world of Beachbody even further by doing the 3 Day Vegan Chocolate Shakeology “Cleanse”.

My plan here was three-fold. I wanted to:

  1. Jumpstart my weight loss,
  2. Get rid of those excess toxins and “crap” that we all have built up in our systems, and 
  3. Find something that would fill in the holes (nutritionally speaking) for my oldest who was now a self-proclaimed “vegan” (and a crappy vegan at that!)

Good intentions all, right? But I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive to even try this stuff in the first place since the last time I drank any sort of “protein” or “health” shake was waaaaay back in the early 90’s when they all tasted like chalk at best and powdered cat food at worst. (Weider Weight Gainer Powder, circa 1993? ‘Nuff said.)

But surprise surprise! This stuff didn’t taste like that AT ALL, but rather like a yummy chocolate milkshake. (No joke!) It completely wiped out my sugar cravings, gave me tons of energy (more so than my regular caffeine buzz), and after the 3 days, my work pants were looser and I felt like a million bucks! (Best of all – all 3 of my kids AND my hubby loved it too! And that’s saying somethin’, people…seriously.) Three-fold plan? Check, check and check!

That’s when I decided that there was more to this whole Beachbody thing than flashy advertising and cool infomercials. They were the “real deal” and had the “total package” of fitness, nutrition and accountability all rolled into one.


That’s why I decided to (wait for it…) join Beachbody as a Coach – specifically joining forces with The Bombshell Dynasty. (I am sooo excited by this, you have NO idea! Smile ) These ladies – especially my coach, Kati – were instrumental in my decision to purchase BBL in the first place, and I’m thrilled to finally have the chance to help others the way they helped ME over a year ago.

Just think: a whole group of people – both men and women – who are just as insane as I am about working out! Hee hee!! I love it! 

The next workouts on my list include:

  • Insanity (been DYING to try this one for YEARS!),
  • ChaLEAN Extreme
  • Turbo Fire

And get this: my own MOTHER is on board with Beachbody now too, and is working hard on her transformation as we speak! I’m so proud of her! Smile 

Stay tuned! Updates to follow!
