BBB 5 Week 4/SBBC Week 8 Recap

The end of this week marks the halfway point for Best Body Bootcamp and the end of the Spring Bootie Buster Challenge.  Today, I wanted to update you on how I did this week!

Here's a look at my week in workouts:
Monday-30 minute elliptical workout + Workout A (pulsing reps for shoulders + lower body)
Tuesday-BBB Core Workout mixed with a cardio circuit
Wednesday-Active Rest day (20 minute walk with Wewii)
Thursday-20 minute treadmill workout + Workout C (pulsing reps for upper body)
Friday-Active Rest day (15 minute walk with Wewii)
Saturday-Step Class + Workout B (total body strength workout)
Sunday-1.77 mile run + BBB Core workout
My goal in the Spring Bootie Buster Challenge was to earn activity points each day.  Turning my rest days into active rest days earned me points for every day of the week!  I wagered 50 points from the challenge that I would do this, and I'm happy to say that I made my wager!

My first goal of this phase of BBB was to take a daily vitamin.  I did much better with this last week, as I only took a vitamin 4/7 days this week.  In an effort to make this happen continually, I set my vitamins in front of my cereal.  That way, I have to move them to get breakfast.  May as well take one while they're out of the cabinet!

My second goal was to brush my teeth, floss, and wash my face each night before bed.  I met this goal 5/7 days.  I will say, this is becoming much more of a habit for me thanks to setting this goal for the last two weeks.  I will still be working on this (especially since I'll be making a dentist appointment soon!), but it won't be one of my goals for the next phase.

It's time to switch up my goals again.  I'm not sure about the second goal, but I know that one of them will be to drink 8ozs of water before drinking coffee in the morning.  I usually don't start drinking water until about 9:30am after waking up at 5:45, and I've noticed that I've started to get dehydrated earlier in the day.

As for my goal to make qualitarian choices, I think I did a great job with it this week!  Today, while grocery shopping, I decided to pick up a Luna bar instead of some candy bar at the check-out aisle.  Not only did it satisfy my sweet tooth, but it's nutritious, too!

Highlight of the Week
During step class on Saturday morning, I was watching myself in the mirrors and noticed my upper body.  My arms and shoulders actually looked like they had definition!  I was so excited and finally felt like I was reaching my fitness goals.

Goal for Next Week
I want to continue my anti-laziness project by getting things done before sitting on the couch in the evening.  This includes getting to the gym after school to ensure that my workouts happen.  I have a busy week with meetings after school, but I've done some prepping today to be prepared for everything.


  1. Great job last week! So awesome that you are reaching your fitness goals and doing such a great job with your other goals as well!

    1. Thank you! It really does feel good to be making some progress!

  2. great job with the active rest!!

    OH I am in love with next week's goal!! Once we get all of our unpacking done I will probably need to rethink periods where I'm being a little too lazy
