Today is flying by for me. Fast Fridays are always a good thing, especially when fun activities are on the agenda for the weekend.
Tomorrow morning I’ll be driving to Orlando for the Central Florida Blogger and Social Media Conference (CFLBlogCon). The conference began last year and was actually the first blogging conference I ever attended!
CFLBlogCon is a one-day conference that covers a variety of topics related to blogging and social media. (You can see my recap of last year’s conference here.) It’s smaller than a lot of other blogging conferences, but that’s what I loved about it last year. It felt intimate and comfortable, which was perfect since I was new to the whole blogging conference thing.
I’m really looking forward to it and can’t wait to catch up with some of my Orlando blogging buddies and Lisa, my friend, former coworker and book blogger extraordinaire at the conference! (Lisa is the one who recommended I read Divergent which ended up being one of the best books I read last year. If you liked The Hunger Games and enjoy dystopian novels, I highly recommend it! I know I’ve recommended it on the blog a handful of times before, but it was just so darn good!)
I managed to make it to the gym today around lunchtime for the final workout of Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp. It was bittersweet to finish the boot camp! I’ve loved the workouts and never felt burned out during the entire eight weeks of the program.
For those who asked me to share my results after following the boot camp, I didn’t take any measurements before or after starting Best Body Boot Camp and haven’t really noticed a change on the scale. My motivation for following the boot camp was simply having a fun exercise plan to follow, so I wasn’t really keeping track of physical changes and don’t have much to report on that end.
In terms of strength or cardiovascular improvements, I do feel stronger! I have specifically noticed improvements in my pushups and certain plyometric exercises. Burpees still kick my fanny, but they’re not quite as horrific.
The real reasons I love Tina’s Best Body Boot Camp:
- The workouts are fast-paced
- The workouts often incorporate supersets and circuits which are my favorite
- Having a workout plan to follow keeps me motivated
- I’m less likely to slack off if I have a detailed plan to follow at the gym
- It’s only $25
In my mind, finding a fitness plan you love or exercise you enjoy is key and this boot camp fits the bill for me! I’m sorry I don’t have more detailed results to share, but those are my thoughts on the program as a whole now that it’s over.
Lunch today was a bit strange. I prepared a batch of overnight oats after breakfast this morning to eat tomorrow morning before the conference and ended up eating them for lunch today instead.
What can I say? They were calling to me from the fridge!
I also made myself chocolate protein smoothie with chocolate protein powder, dark chocolate cocoa powder, spinach, milk and frozen bananas.
