BBB5 Final Recap

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope y'all are having an awesome holiday weekend.  I wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to all of the men and women who have sacrificed their lives for our country.  We are all thankful for your service!

Now, it's time to recap the final week of Best Body Bootcamp!  This is my second round of the program, and I truly love it!  The workouts are great, the support is awesome, and it really helps promote an all-around healthy lifestyle.

Sign-up now for Round 6 of the program!  Not only will you get the usual workouts, but Tina is offering an e-book of 50 workouts.  She's also going to be doing video demonstrations of all workouts, which will be incredibly helpful and convenient.  Join me in Round 6 by signing up now.
I did pretty well with activity this last week!  
Monday: 5-minute warm-up and Workout A while watching DWTS
Tuesday: 3-mile treadmill run
Wednesday: 2-mile run and Workout B
Thursday: rest day
Friday: travel/rest day
Saturday: Hiking/swimming all day at the springs
Sunday: Hiking/swimming all day at the springs
Traditional workouts at the beginning were followed up with some unconventional workouts this weekend.  Joe and I went camping this weekend on his friend's land.  There's a lot of hiking involved to get to the camp sites and swimming areas, and we spent almost all day on Saturday and Sunday swimming in the springs and river.  Lots of fun!

I did well with my goals this week, too!  I had 72+ oz. of water 5/7 days this week, which was much better than last week.  I still need to up that, since I've been getting dehydration headaches more frequently lately.

I met my goal of taking care of myself at night (flossing, getting to bed on time, etc.) 5/7 nights this week.  I really need to work on this, because I get lazy as the night goes on.  

Highlight of the Week
On Wednesday, I started running as just a quick warm-up before the tabata workout.  I was really feeling the run, though, and I just kept going until I reached 2 miles!  I had a great pace on the run and really enjoyed the motivation that my MapMyRun app on my phone kept giving me.

Goals Between Now and the Next Round
My biggest goal for the next month is to stick to my half marathon training plan!  I haven't been 100% sticking to it yet, so I need to really focus on getting in to that.

Question for you: Are you signing up for BBB Round 6?  What are your beginning-of-the-summer workout goals?


  1. Great job on finishing Boot Camp! And I love unconventional workout days like that, especially getting to be outside!

    1. It was so nice to be outside all weekend and workout with out even knowing it!

  2. Workouts that feel better and go more than expected are always a highlight for me too. Such a rush. Love your weekend workouts! That makes me so happy to see when people realize you don't have to be at a gym to still be active. Sometimes those workouts are the best kind because you're living life while enjoying them. :)

    1. I agree! I used to not recognize stuff like that as working out, but it certainly counts! My muscles were quick sore the day after getting home :)
