Getting My Booty in Shape with Booty Camp!

This is a post on fitness, which I rarely do on this blog. I feel that it is important because this is a beauty blog after all, and being fit definitely makes us feel good about ourselves. For those of you who follow me on Twitter, you may have already read my spam tweets about my newest fitness challenge: Booty Camp!

I started working out with Booty Camp four weeks ago, after quitting the gym (again!) because I rarely went and lack of progress. I joined Booty Camp for two reasons:

  1. In the past, I have had incredible results working with a trainer.
  2. I enjoy and feel more motivated in group exercise than working out on my own.

After eight, 1-hour outdoor workouts over four weeks (plus DVD workouts), I am happy to report some progress! 🙂

  • Start Total Measurements: 207.25 inches
  • Week 4 Total Measurements: 201.25 inches (down 6 inches)
  • Start Body Fat: 27.8%
  • Week 4 Body Fat: 25.3% (down 2.5%)

It’s so exciting to see results fast!  When I exercised alone, I found many excuses to delay my workouts (“I’ll do it tomorrow!”). Now, it has really helped to have a schedule that I have to stick to.  While these numbers are great, I know I can do even better.  Right now I eat better but still don’t eat as well as I should.  I really gotta try to keep my eating habits in check.

I have already signed up for 8 more weeks, so if you are interested in following my progress, I will report back on weeks 8 and 12!

If you are looking for a new fitness challenge, take a look at the Booty Camp Fitness website or have a chat with them on Twitter (@BootyCampFit).

Are You Currently on a Fitness Routine?

I’d love to know what you’re doing to keep yourself in shape. What are your fitness goals? Lastly, keep up the good work! 😀

P.S. As a reward I am (temporarily) lifting my Chanel ban. 😛 YAY!!!

  • Way to go girl! Woot woot on the future Chanel purchase.

    • Thanks! 🙂 Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss or Rouge Allure Laque, come to mama!

  • awesome! I have a fitness routine…. i do pole dancing and cardio(zumba, hip hop dance, burlesque dance, belly dance) and boot camp as well 😀

    • I LOVE ZUMBA! Where do you do your pole dancing? I’ve always wanted to try it. 🙂

  • thanks for posting this Arianne. I will def check them out. I exercise regularly but would like to amp up the intensity of it

    • I hope you join! 🙂 You’ll have tons of fun doing it, I promise!

  • way to go Arianne!!! I WISH the idea of this didnt scare me or i would do it. I feel like i wouldnt even last 2 mins lol

    • Thanks! That’s how I started too! Seriously I wanted to cry on the first 5 minutes of my first boot camp. You definitely get much better at it after each session. 🙂

  • I run for a mile every day and do fencing on the side. Actually, I haven’t been to fencing lately because putting on a full suit and mask in this weather doesn’t sound very tempting, but as soon as it cools down I’ll go back. I used to try and regulate my portions very strictly, but that ended up making me lose too much weight, so now I eat until I’m full, and sometimes a little more 🙂

    • That sounds great! Wish I lost weight on eating smaller portions alone. 🙂

  • Congrats on your great results!

    Right now I am finishing up my detox and looking for some new stuff to do. To keep me from munching, I take a Flamenco class on Mondays, and an ATS bellydance class on Tuesdays. I also have a personal trainer. I have found that I prefer doing activities over lifting weights! Much more fun!

    Also kudos for lifting self imposed ban!

    • Thanks. Sounds like you’re doing well also! Good job. 🙂
