Back on Track!
Okay, this weekend I finally went back to my Weight Watchers meeting!!! It was soo great to see my Saturday peeps again, and I was warmly welcomed back. They’re a fantastic group of losers (we say this because we’re losing weight!), and I’m so happy that they accepted me into their circle. The focus of the meeting was activity, and that’s an area that I’m significantly lacking in… Pre-pregnancy I played tennis, but my instructor isn’t teaching anymore. I ordered the Bodyboss Method offline a few weeks ago, and I’ve been putting off starting. But yesterday I said “NO MORE”. I was motivated and got up at 5am, did my exercise, showered, and still had time before waking up bubby.
What is the Bodyboss Method?
Have you seen those ads all over facebook for exercise methods? Well the Bodyboss Method was one that popped up, and actually made me stop scrolling. It’s a book that has a series of exercises to do over 12 weeks (16 if you count pretraining). The thing that caught my eye was: 1) it’s a book and not a video 2) they had plus sized people doing it 3) it looked like it scaled evenly.
Old School Book
The Bodyboss book and not a video aspect really caught my eye. I love workout videos, and have a HUGE stash of them. The only problem is that I’m often left behind before I can finish the reps. As I said before, I’m lacking in exercise. This means I’m pretty slow, but usually I speed up with time. The book allows you to go at your own pace, even though there’s time markings in it.
The plus sized people working out really caught my eye. It’s kinda like, if they can do it I can. You always see advertisements with ripped women and men, with 8 pack abs and super strong arms. But that is not me (and probably never will be!). So to see “real” people working out with Bodyboss was really cool.
When I say scaled exercises I mean a program that starts out for beginners, and progressively gets harder. And I feel like that’s true to the Bodyboss Method. The pretraining is pretty rough so far, but I’m keeping up. I’m looking forward to building muscle as I go, and being able to increase the difficulty. And the best part is that you can always go back and redo a day if you don’t feel like advancing.
How’d I do?
For the first circuit I moved a bit slow… But the second one I definitely found my rhythm. I was able to do the second 7 minute circuit in 8:45 minutes, so not to shabby if I say so myself! Next time I’m going to focus on time and not reps, which will hopefully speed me up. I can’t wait to work out with Bodyboss PTW1D2 tomorrow and see how I’ve advanced!
