Blogilates Beginner's Calendar 2.0: Review & Final Update

I've officially completed all 28 days of the Blogilates Beginner's Calendar and firstly, I have to say that I'm pretty damn proud of myself, because it was pretty difficult but I stuck with it until the end. And I had fun in the process!

So, how much of a difference does this calendar really make? Does it work? Here are my final thoughts.

This workout program really works, but you need to work at it too. If you're going to half ass the workouts, eat badly and skip days, you really won't see a huge difference. I really did my best to stick with it and work hard at it and I really have seen a difference.

The thing about Blogilates that I enjoyed is that you won't just see a difference in your body, you'll see a difference in your mindset and motivation as well. Physically, since I began the calendar, I lost 10 pounds and I feel so much stronger than I was before. My muscles, especially my legs are so much more defined than they used to be.

Cassey also throws in a lot of great advice to frame a healthy mindset as well. She especially stresses that it's completely fine to want to change your body and work for the best you, but it's not okay to hate your body. You need to love your body and it will love you back, and show you the results you want. That definitely resonated with me.

She also reminds you often that getting the body you want and reaching your goals wont be easy, and you need to work for it, but you'll get there, which definitely keeps you motivated to push yourself.

If you're considering doing this calendar, I highly recommend that you do. It will absolutely whip you into shape, and prepare you to be able to do the regular monthly calendars to the best of your abilities, but it'll also make you so much more motivated to work and to stick with your workout routines.

I'd also like to point out that just because it's called the Beginner calendar, doesn't mean that it's easy by any means. You will still be challenged and you will still work your butt off, but you'll also be doing the beginner videos, which offer a bit more guidance when it comes to proper form and how to execute the moves effectively.

Comment below if you've done the calendar, or are considering trying it! I'd love to hear what you guys think!

Blogilates Beginner's Calendar 2.0: Week 2 Update!

Hey everyone! So I've officially been doing the Blogilates Beginner's calendar for 2 weeks now, and I'm having a lot of fun doing it! I'm always challenged, but I feel like comparing to myself 14 days ago, I'm already stronger.

The great thing for me, doing this calendar, has been that it kind of forces you to get up and be active. You really don't have to think hard about it, it's all planned out for you, just need to stick with it.

For those of you thinking about doing this, I really recommend it! I'm already so much more motivated to work out every day, I feel a lot stronger and more energetic every day and I'm loving it. Today's my rest day and I'm thinking of maybe working out for fun now...

Today's recipe was the Berrylicious Microwave Minute Muffin, which is actually such an interesting idea. I edited the recipe to be more tasty to me, because the basic 3 ingredient recipe sounded a bit like eggy oatmeal to me. For those wondering, I used: 1 egg white, 1/4 cup quick oats, 1 banana (mashed), 1 tbsp almond milk, 1/4 cup frozen mixed berries. I'll definitely make this recipe again when I need a quick breakfast. Maybe just omit the almond milk, because it was a bit on the soft side!

Happy Friday everyone!
