In February of 2014, I decided to get fit. For myself, but mainly for my daughter. I dove head first into a wonderful program called Bikini Body Mommy. The creator Briana is such an incredible motivator. And she is real.
The program is 20 minutes a day. It alternates between strength routines and cardio routines for 6 days of the week. On the 7th day, you get a rest day – which I always opted to skip. I know myself too well. If I stop for a day, I will stop for good.
By day 30, I felt great but was slightly discouraged. What? I’ve only lost 1 pound? How is that possible? Well, ladies and gentlemen, muscle weighs more than fat. I remember a day where I ran my hand over my forearm and there was a bump. I looked down VERY confused and saw that I had new muscles. Huh…cool! So regardless of feeling like 1 pound wasn’t enough, I continued my journey.
At day 60 of this 90 day challenge I was floored at the shape change in my body! And I was hooked. I’ve been working out daily ever since and haven’t looked back.
