For the past 5 weeks, I have been participating in an online bootcamp put on by The Workout Mama. Every week, Tamara would send us 3 different workouts to complete. These workouts were challenging but doable. I stuck with it, and completed these workouts every week and added in a few of my own.
I did take before and after pictures, but unfortunately I'm in a bit of a rut and didn't see any improvement or weight loss, so you aren't going to see those pictures.
But despite this, I would highly recommend Tamara's bootcamps because I'm pretty sure the lack of weight loss is a me thing and not a bootcamp thing! I have always had trouble losing weight, but eventually it just kind of falls off. (She's doing another one in November and you can sign up here! It's only $40 for a 5 week session, which I think is an amazing price to get 15 new workouts and some increased motivation). It's a great way to change up your workout and get some new routines.
At the end of the day, fitness isn't just about weight loss. It's about maintaining a healthy active lifestyle. It's about creating good habits for myself that I can carry on for the rest of my life. If you don't work out now, why would you start in 10 years? Fitness makes me happier, both physically and mentally. So although I would have loved to lose some of these extra pounds that I have added on, bootcamp was about more than that.
