{6 Week Results} Fit Body Boot Camp

I'll just get right to it.


Here is me - all glowing or glistening :-) after my final workout at Fit Body Boot Camp:

Results: -10.6 lbs, -7.5 combined inches, and -1.5% body fat
You can read about my initial goal here and the update here.
I'm thrilled with the results especially since I reached my goal of losing a pant size! About 3/4 of the way through I had to purchase new workout clothes!

My Review

I highly recommend the Fit Body program. Even if you think a boot camp is not for you, I recommend you give it a try. The variety of exercises make it challenging and exciting at the same time. The group environment gives you that competitive edge and the camaraderie gives you accountability with encouragement as you need it.
At this point I've decided not to continue working out with Fit Body because of the cost. It doesn't fit in with my financial goals for this year, but if my budget could swing it, I would definitely continue! 

What's Next?

My next fitness goal is to go back to my FREE gym at work. I plan to use the Jillian Michaels 6-Week 6-Pack workout out video about 5-6 times a week, continue walking about 5 times per week at lunch and also walk 4 times per week in the evening. This past week I didn't get to walk (either at work or at the lake) as much as I had the previous 5 weeks. I kinda missed it!
I think breaking down my goals into 3-week increments will help me keep focused and also make adjustments as needed. So I plan to do a 3-week update and tweak my workout routine if I'm not seeing results. I'm  already afraid I'm going to get bored with Jillian, but I plan to implement some of my new skills to mix it up a bit.
Right at the beginning of the 6 weeks of Fit Body I started recording what I ate. This was a key habit that I will also continue.

In Conclusion
