close to two months ago now i posted about how i was going to take the vital juice bikini body challenge to prep for my upcoming 30th birthday.
as you know that birthday has come and gone, hello old lady status, but i've still been continuing with the vital juice workouts because i love them so much.
initially, following the workout program was a bit weird for me not because they kicked my ass (which they did), but mostly because in the last 7 months or so of my working out i had been for the most part only doing cardio. and while the vital juice bikini body challenge does incorporate plenty of cardio into the workout there's also a solid 45 minutes of weights and strength training - which i quickly became obsessed with.
there seriously isn't a better feeling then the next day barely being able to walk due to the insane amount of jumping deep lunges you completed.
there also isn't a better feeling than after 6 weeks of the program seeing new definition in your legs, stomach and arms - it's like where did these muscles come from?!?!
now while i may not be hot body bikini ready it wasn't because of the workout, i just have some more work to do to meet my goal. i'm definitely WAY closer than i was in may when i started the plan.
do i recommend the vital juice bikini body workout? HECK YES.
bikini or no bikini goal you'll end up feeling better about yourself and 100% notice a difference in your body - trust me.
i need to thank my sissy and amy for introducing me to this workout as well as my friend ANG* for inviting me to join her biggest loser challenge in january - i've made some serious progress in these past 6 1/2 months.
wanna see some proof?
the first picture was taken of ANG* and i this past december on a browns sunday at blind pig before either one of us started trying to get in shape and or eat healthy.
the second picture was taken of ANG* and i two weeks ago at my 30th birthday party at hoopples.
i absolutely LOVE the fact that ANG* found the first picture of us and that we unbeknown to us at the time took the exact same picture recently.
what a difference 6 1/2 months can make huh?
we look waaaaaaaaaaaay better now if i do say so myself and we did it the right way - diet, exercise and didn't starve ourselves in the process. i mean, you guys see how much i go out on a weekly basis!
and while i still may have a lot of work to do to get to where i want to be i have a great start and can't wait to see what the next 6 1/2 months bring.
happy tuesday kids!
