Before and After Pictures+Bobbi’s Bootcamp

Wow is it already Thursday evening? This week went by super fast, and I can not wait until it is over!! I only have one more week of school left, and next week is going to be filled with parties and talent shows.

This morning I had the pleasure to meet with Veronica and her adorable kiddos for coffee(well the kiddos had hot chocolate). Thank you so much for the kind words about her weight loss story, and my training certificate you guys are so encouraging!!! She also sent me some before and after pics that I thought you guys would enjoy, check them out!





And today:) One hot mama!


Love this girl!! We are actually going to start a 200 situp, and 100 pushup challenge together to work on those core areas that need some extra toning ! It will be a lot of fun doing it together, anyone want to join us? We are going to start on Monday! I love me some challenges!!!

Speaking of challenges, I am starting an 18 week “Bobbi’s Bootcamp” tomorrow morning at 6am! I am getting so pumped, it’s going to be a lot of fun, we are not only going to work on our physical appearance but also our eating habits, and spiritual growth. We are only meeting on Friday mornings, but of course I am encouraging the girls to get out and at least work out 3 days the rest of the week, We are also going to have accountability buddies, to encourage one another throughout the 18 weeks, and even swapping healthy recipe ideas with each other by brining in a healthy breakfast for everyone!! I plan on keeping you all informed, so don’t worry you won’t miss out. I promise to post a lot of the circuit workouts we do as well as all the yummy and healthy food!!!

Today lunch was a true beauty, lot’s of color and flavor! I had a huge salad with lot’s of strawberries, cucumbers,tomatoes,an egg, and hummus.


Well the salad actually became a pita! By the way I am actually eating on our picnic tables at school, but it looks more like a side walk!!!


With some sliced cantaloupe of course!! I am so buying another one of these this weekend, I hope they are still only 1 dollar!


Well I am off to meet our Thursday night group for pizza at our favorite pizza place, The Gourmet Pizza Shop! This summer our group is stepping back from all the studying we have been doing through the year and just hanging out together.  After dinner we are going to walk around the farmers market that is on the same street, and I brought my reusable bag of course:) I am hitting up the Organic Co-Op this weekend so I probably won’t by too much.

I will probably be going to bed early tonight, because I have a 5am wake up call, but I will be posting my first bootcamp experience in the morning, can’t wait!!!

Bootcamp sounds like an awesome idea! Keep us posted!

I'm so excited to hear more about your bootcamp!

Lauren said...

What a wonderful idea with the bootcamp. Can't wait to see all the posts on that.

Your salad looks awesome, but I have to share this with you. I just heard on the radio this morning that the picnic table is one of the most contaminated places to eat ever! They said make sure that you are putting your food on a place mat or something else so nothing tocuhes the table.

Haha, crazy, I never really thought about it, but I guess it makes sense. I just had to share that with you.

Have a wonderful night!!

Oh man, I've tried the 100 push up challenge before and it is TOUGH! I loved the challenge but I could not get beyond week 2 before I finally lost interest (because it was so hard!) In other news I can now do 20 pushups at time (when before I could only do 12) so it does work. It's an awesome challenge for sure.

Ashley and Bo said...

Yes i'm in! Just email me what I need to do and i'll hop on! I'm at 15 pushups right now!!

Niki said...

Bootcamp sounds awesome! Wish I lived out there so I could join!! I am currently one week 1 of the 100 push up challenge!! Tough stuff!

Fit Mommy said...

Are you at Brookside tomorrow?

The Bagley Bunch said...

Girl, you are so funny with the "one hot mama" hahaha I was laughing out loud at that one :).

Couldn't have done it without ya!

And hubby has study in the morning, so I will be there next week for sure. Let me know where you are meeting :)

Croughwell said...

I already do the 100 push up, 200 sit up, and 200 squat challenge. I am on week 3 and day 2. I do the middle column for the pushups and the third column for the sit ups and squats....

The bootcamp sounds wonderful. I think spiritual growth really factors in to how you eat and feel about yourself.

rigdon@mtnhome.com said...

Great idea on the bootcamp! I would LOVE to do that in my hometown. Any way you could outline the program for us? I'm all about the spiritual side of things - that's what makes all the pieces fit together! I would love to know more!!!

Alison said...

I was doing the push-up challenge but it fell by the wayside when I went on vacation. Thanks for the reminder. I'd like to start up again.

maria k said...

hope bootcamp went well! cant wait to hear about it and what exactly you did!

Brandi said...

awesome pictures! Congrats to her again :)

The bootcamp sounds awesome - you should move to VA so I can meet on Fridays, too - ha!

Melissa @ For the Love of Health said...

Phenomenal before and after photos! She looks wonderful! You can see how happy she looks too and that's the most important part.

You must be thrilled for the Boot camp! Sounds like fun! A group setting is always motivating!

Have a wonderful Friday!!

Julie @ Running with Carley said...

I'm game for a sit/push-up challange! It's hard for me to do strength training on my own, so a challenge would be fun.

Congrats to Veronica! You look great!

healthy ashley said...

This Bobbi's Bootcamp sounds amazing! I wish I was closer :)

Fitzalan said...

Veronica--You look FABULOUS!

And I definitely want to join the 200 situp/100 pushup challenge!

Happiness Awaits

laura said...

Washington Family said...

Bobbi, I hope day 1 of boot camp was a success! Sounds fun. :)
I want to join the 200 situp and 100 push up challenge. Ever since my c-section, the core is my biggest challenge. Have a great day! -cw

Nobel4Lit said...

Hey, the preg picture doesn't count as a "before"... he he.

That pita salad looks great, btw.

Brooke said...

I'm definitely up for a challenge. I was just commenting that I always opted for cardio workouts over strength ones, so this sounds perfect! Let me know what to do!

Redefined Mommy aka Mimi said...

I am in for the challenge! I am with the other commenter... can you post any information on your bootcamp? I NEED a bootcamp!

The Bagley Bunch said...

Thanks again everyone for your kind comments!

And I know...the pregnancy one doesn't "count" as a before but we thought it to be a great visual to describe exactly what we were "dealin" with ;)

Haha, have a great weekend everyone!
