BIKINI BODY MOMMY SUCCESS STORY: Lisa B.

Success_Stories_Lisa B_Site

Meet BIKINI BODY MOMMY Lisa B! What I love about her story is the relatability to "Life getting in the way," and how she didn't totally throw in the towel and give up when it did... 40 POUNDS and -18 INCHES later, HERE IS HER STORY:

Briana -

I can't thank you enough for the encouragement, and the free challenge.  I started the challenge 6 weeks after having my second daughter. I had to stop on Day 45 due to surgery. After about 3 weeks of recovery I started the challenge again from Day 1. I lost all of the baby weight gained with my second child. A total of 40lbs. I also lost an amazing 18 total inches! 6 inches alone in my hips!

I am going to be starting your challenge again in just a week or so... and I can't wait for 3.0. to begin on January 6th! My goal is to lose the last 30 lbs that I gained from my first daughter. No Excuses! It was amazing to see the results. I never would have thought I made the changes I did without the before and after photos. 

Thank you so much for all that you have done! You have changed my life!!

Lisa

CONGRATS Lisa!!! THANK YOU for being brave enough to share your Progress Photos with ME along with all of the other Bikini Body Mommies in the Community! Your results are SO INSPIRING … look at YOU!!!! I know it has to feel pretty gosh darn AH-MAZING… I can’t wait to see your photos after the next 90 Days! SEPTEMBER 8TH HERE WE COME….

Bikini Body Mommy Challenge Success Story -- Hilary B.

Success_Stories_HilaryB_Site

In Need of a little MOTIVATION to join the next round of my BIKINI BODY MOMMY CHALLENGE beginning Sept 8th? Meet BIKINI BODY MOMMY Hilary B.!!!  If you are anything like me, I’m sure her progress photos have already made your jaw hit the floor!

IN HER WORDS…Here is a small snipet about her journey thus far…

Hi Briana,

I wanted to start off by thanking you for providing me with the resources and motivation needed to start this incredible journey.  I was 3 months post-partum with my first child when I was introduced to your program; I was desperately struggling with the reality of my post baby body.  To be honest though, I began to pack on the pounds even before the 60 pounds of baby weight that I acquired.  Your program enabled me to be able to lose the weight in a healthy fashion while still adjusting to life with a new baby.

Although I definitely wanted to lose the weight, my main motivation was to get healthy.  I want to be a positive influence on my daughter and I know that that starts with me.  I truly appreciated your emphasis on the health aspect over the weight loss aspect.  I recently celebrated my 30th birthday and I am in the best shape of my life!!

I have been with you since BBM 1 and these pictures are the before and after of BBM 1 and BBM 2.0.

Overall my results are as follows:

Chest:   -1.00"

Waist:   -6.00"

Hips L:  -6.50"

Hips S: -5.00"

Thigh:   -2.50"

Arm:      -1.75"

____________

Total Lost: -22.75"

Weight: -42.20lbs

Oh! .... and I'm currently in training to complete my first half marathon the day after my daughters first birthday!!!  Loving the new lifestyle change!!!

Ever Grateful, Hilary Buchanan

1937443_545880492183945_4405490818144096507_n

SAME GIRL, SAME BIKINI....  So whats the difference between these two photos? 21 months • +8.75 pounds • a 4th pregnancy... a devastating miscarriage • a public 6 month post-pregnancy transformation • a [now] globally recognized brand • and a multi-million fitness movement following of some of the bravest, most dynamic, inspiring, and change-provoking women (and men!) this world has ever seen. That's right BIKINI BODY MOMMIES (and Boardshort-Daddies/Man-kini Men)-- I'M TALKING ABOUT YOU!

Honestly guys, words can't express how grateful I am to each and every single one of you for your ongoing support since founding BIKINI BODY MOMMY after my initial 100 Pound transformation a little less than 2 years ago. Thank you for believing in me. Thank you for not only connecting with, but embracing the vulnerability, realness, and courage that it's taken to publicly put myself out there everyday for you all. Thank you for bringing me into your homes everyday, and for sharing your families with me.... And mine with YOURS. Thank you for embracing my BBM philosophy, and for all of the energy you exert everyday to adapt the principles that make it a part of your lifestyle -- I know it's not easy.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST... Thank you for taking a chance on me. Thank you for trusting me enough to guide, encourage, and inspire your own transformations -- ONE DAY AT A TIME!

We Are All ...TRULY in this TOGETHER.

For Everyone Waiting... HERE IS MY BBMC 2.0: DAY 90 PERSONAL PROGRESS UPDATE VIDEO

BBMC 2.0: My Personal DAY 75 Progress Update

Briana Christine Transformation

If the journey to your goal doesn't make you want to quit at some point, it's not hard enough. Just remember quitting and wanting are two different things...

MY PERSONAL DAY 75 Bikini Body Mommy Challenge 2.0 PROGRESS UPDATE [*Remember I'm Filming 2 weeks ahead of you guys!]: If you've been following me for any length of time you know that I didn't just wake up in this body... I've busted my proverbial a** off day in and day out for the last 6 months to get to the current place I'm in after my 4th pregnancy ended last fall– and it's been a roller coaster ride. The truth is having this body, this current level of confidence, health, happiness, and BALANCE is A WORK IN PROGRESS and will ALWAYS be a lifelong struggle to maintain!

As most of you have already clued in -- Being a "Bikini Body Mommy" is so much more than a fad fitness program -- it's a mentality and a way of life! So for all those who are beginning to stress about "what comes after" #BikiniBodyMommyChallenge 2.0 ends... DONT. I'm not going anywhere... I've got some amazing things coming your way that I'll be announcing very very soon! [SPOILER ALERT: Can you say 3.0??? ;p ] xoxo, -Briana

⚠️As a side note: You guys have just under 30 Days to go until the end of the current challenge -- that is still PLENTY OF TIME to make significant change before the end of summer but you have to GET REAL ABOUT YOUR NUTRITION! ***Don't forget you still have the opportunity to be eating EVERYTHING I'm EATING 5x per day via my Weekly Meal Plan for less than $10mth!

Have you started your FREE WEEK TRIAL Yet? You'd better hurry....the new plan for next week comes out TODAY!!! https://www.bikinibodymommy.com/meal-plan

FOR EVERYONE WONDERING... YES, I am ONLY doing the workouts that I am filming each week for you all -- NO MORE, no less. With that said... It is also important to remember that no matter how much effort you pour into these workouts, "YOU CAN'T OUT-TRAIN A BAD DIET!" --It's MY NUTRITION that is playing the biggest factor in getting the results you see pictured here. If you are struggling with YOUR OWN NUTRITION, if you are overwhelmed, or maybe just want everything "mapped out for you"... Don't forget you can be eating EVERYTHING IM EATING 5x PER DAY via my Weekly Meal Plan that is available here on my website.

Ok... without further ado...

For all of you who are interested in getting the full scoop on "how much weight," and just "how many inches" I've lost thus far ... HERE IS MY DAY 30 CHECK-IN VIDEO [SPOILER ALERT: it's NOT what you think!]

1 MILLION VIEWS!!! It's BBMC BLOOPER REEL Time...

MillionViews_Monday_thumbnail

Earlier this week I teased you guys with a SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT that SOMETHING HUGE Had HAPPENED!

Well THE WAIT IS OVER... here is the news:

I HIT 1 MILLION VIEWS on YouTUBE!!!

To celebrate I've decided to release a VERY SPECIAL Bikini Body Mommy Challenge Behind the Scenes "BLOOPER REEL" from the last 90 Days.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z1RFNTn0ML8

*BEFORE YOU PUSH PLAY... The blooper footage is PG13 and contains a couple language bombs you might not want your little ones to hear. VIEWER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

Why Aren't You Seeing A NEW 2.0 Workout Every day? A GREAT QUESTION...

10345777_508482369257091_4441765664908935194_n

A GREAT QUESTION just got asked on Instagram. I'm sure she isn't the only one wondering so I'm posting my response below... A: "Mainly because...

#1) I'm not filming these workouts myself. I hired a media/production company to come into my home 2 days/per week to film and produce the project. Given all the other demands of my time (and in all fairness to my family), it's physically impossible to have the camera crew in my home 6 days a week -- ESPECIALLY given how much work actually goes in behind the scenes.

Screen Shot 2014-05-09 at 11.37.46 AM

I realize you guys only see a 15-20 min workout everyday, but the reality is that between the production set-up, filming, and take down, every night that we film a new workout, it is close to a 3 hour endeavour... that's already 6 hours per week -- not including the time it takes to clean my house, move furniture, and physically get ready myself for being in front of the camera.

Then there is the Post-production workload, which already has an full-time editor working OVER 40 hours a week just to cut the footage for the 2 workouts that are presently being filmed each week + piece together the 4 additional videos which are repeated on subsequent days.

Its a HUGE process to get to the final video you guys actually see every day...

#2) The Expense. AGAIN.... I hired a media company to produce this project —upfront and completely out of pocket. As I'm sure MOST of you can imagine... Quality cinematography and editing in post-production -- even just TWO workouts per week -- comes with a hefty price tag....

IMG_0260

#3) It Doesn't Make Sense. Since I/we are all repeating the same strength and cardio workout for 6 days in BBMC 2.0, it didn't make much sense (given the afore mentioned points #1 and #2) to film the exact same workout 6 times per week. The content and viewing experience would be pretty much the same (minus hearing me drop a few new swear words ;) ) and any physical change in my body day-to-day would be so minimal it wouldn't justify the effort or expense to do it. *I AM STILL WORKING OUT 6 DAYS PER WEEK. I'm only filming the TWO DAYS you see... and doing the other 4 days on my own.

Hopefully this answers the question for everyone who is wondering! And don't worry, I didn't take offence... It was a valid question... And I know the majority of you all are BEYOND grateful for the effort, energy, and commitment that presently goes into creating and documenting this project for you all!  xx,-Briana

SUCCESS JOURNALS Are FINALLY HERE!

Screen Shot 2014-05-05 at 5.00.14 PM

THE WAIT IS OVER!

The OFFICIAL 90 DAY BIKINI BODY MOMMY CHALLENGE SUCCESS JOURNALS Are FINALLY HERE!!!

Record your measurements, weigh-in’s, progress pics, organize and record your goals, daily nutrition, and workout scores.  The BIKINI BODY MOMMY CHALLENGE SUCCESS JOURNAL reinforces the importance of making a lasting change by enabling BIKINI BODY MOMMIES to measure their results on a daily basis and track their progress throughout the entire program. As part of the journal you are forced to record your goals, daily nutrition, and “planned” vs. actual results for your workouts each and EVERY day. At the end of each week, the journal contains a “weekly overview” evaluation section which provides BIKINI BODY MOMMIES with a bigger picture view of how their daily habits add up. This truly reinforces the program upon you, which is a good thing for many who feel they might lack the discipline to complete such a program.

BIKINI BODY MOMMY CHALLENGE 2.0 - THE FACTS

Bikini Body Mommy_20_Rev5

Hi BIKINI BODY MOMMIES! I know that you are as anxious about the release of BIKINI BODY MOMMY 2.0 as I am!  It's going to be all NEW and SO fun... I can NOT wait to get started with you.

I also know that there must be many, many questions looming out there from those of you who are brand new to the challenge, and even questions from all the long time BIKINI BODY MOMMIES!

I want to make sure you are PREPARED and ready to hit the ground running on Monday with the new release, so I'm dedicating this post to answering all the open questions that may be out there.  Have a specific question relating directly to BBM 2.0 that I've missed?  Be sure to comment below!

xx, - Briana

http://youtu.be/1WiavS16St0

What is BBM?  What is BBM 2.0?

I created BIKINI BODY MOMMY in September of 2012 after successfully transforming my body and losing 100 POUNDS in 11 1/2 months after giving birth to my 3rd child.  It is a 90 day fitness challenge meant to help all the busy MOMMIES out there fit in Daily exercise into their busy, busy schedules.  After having put back on 30 pounds during my 4th pregnancy (which unfortunately ended in a devastating miscarriage) I am launching 2.0 as a BRAND NEW version of the 90 day challenge that will follow my same philosophies but help keep things fresh, fun, and new for everyone who is looking be part of the global Bikini Body Mommy Movement.

When does it start?

BBM 2.0 will start on Monday, May 5, 2014... however you can begin the 2.0 challenge as well as the original whenever you find it and are ready to begin. The videos for both challenges will remain on YOUTUBE, FB, and my Website COMPLETELY FREE for you to follow for all of internet eternity.

How/Do I need to register?

No registration needed! I highly recommend subscribing to my YouTube channel and Blog to be informed when new workouts are posted.   I post all workouts on my Blog and FB at midnight Eastern Standard time.

Do I need to complete the original 90 day challenge to start 2.0?

No!  Completing the original BBM is not required to start BBM 2.0.  In fact, if you haven’t even heard of the original challenge, I recommend starting on May 5 with 2.0.  There is motivation and support, excitement and encouragement, and ACCOUNTABILITY  that will come with starting with the new challenge.

How will 2.0 differ from the original?

The workouts will still be beginner friendly, but will provide FRESH NEW workouts to help you transform you body based off of the same principles outlined in the original challenge and my book, the “Bikini Body Mommy Blueprint.”

Do I need any equipment to complete BBM 2.0?

You’ll need a set of Dumbbells, and possibly and exercise mat if you are working out on a hard surface.

How long will the workouts be?

There will be two types of workouts in this series, (1) Strength training and (2) Cardio.  Each session will not exceed 20 minutes.

Can I complete the challenge if I am brand new to exercise?

ABSOLUTELY! The workouts have modifications to make them easy to follow for even someone who has never formally worked out a day in their life

Can I follow your challenge if I am pregnant?

I can not give medical advice, which is why it is important that regardless of whether you are pregnant or not that you have been cleared to perform exercise from your medical doctor.  If you have a “normal” low-risk pregnancy -- YES these workouts should be safe to follow.  If you are in your second or third trimester Some modifications will need to be made in terms of avoiding the structured ab work/plank exercises in the challenge.... and the biggest piece of advice would be to LISTEN TO YOUR BODY.  If you feel like you are doing too much... less the intensity, do the modifications, or extend your rest periods between exercises to help you recover.

Can I follow your challenge if I am nursing?

ABSOLUTELY.

Will modifications be noted/provided if I have Diastasis Recti?

Please reference the extensive post that I have written on this subject: https://www.bikinibodymommy.com/blog/2013/04/28/diastasis-recti-101-why-some-moms-shouldnt-do-crunches/

Do you have any nutrition tips that you can provide?

Absolutely!  I have a blog post of my top 5 nutrition tips that you can read here: https://www.bikinibodymommy.com/blog/2013/02/15/summer-bodies-are-made-in-the-winter/.

I also have a weekly subscription meal plan where you can eat EVERYTHING I’m eating 5x per day ... here:  www.bikinibodymommy.com/meal-plan

If BBM 2.0 has HIIT workouts, may I substitute longer cardio in place of them?

Doing activity above and beyond the workouts wouldn’t be a negative thing, however I am personally trying to prove that nothing “above and beyond” the workouts I am posting is “needed” to get unbelievable results.

When should I expect to see changes in my body?

Every person is unique, and depends on the actual adherence to not only following the workouts.. but also the NUTRITION.  No matter how hard you workout, you CAN’T OUT TRAIN A BAD DIET. If your nutrition are workouts are in-line 90% of the time.... most people notice and immediate change, while others might take a few weeks for their bodies to get with the program.  The most important thing to remember is constancy is KEY

What is the approximate calorie burn for your exercises?

There is no way to accurately answer this question as everyone will burn calories differently based on their individual circumstances such as current weight, height, Body fat %, intensity of exercise, etc.)

Do you have an app?

Unfortunately there is not one available as of yet.... but it IS IN DEVELOPMENT.  It will be launched in the future, and will hopefully make your BIKINI BODY MOMMY experience more fantastic then ever!

When will the success journal be ready?

The success journal will be ready for purchase on May 3, 2014.

Any helpful advice for success? 

One of the best things that you can do for yourself to set yourself up for success is to grab one, two, three, HECK .. A DOZEN .. accountability partners to join you in this journey.  Challenge yourself to check in with one another DAILY .. call, text, email, set up a FB challenge group .. do WHATEVER IT TAKES to push yourself and each other.  Check in with ME daily too!  Let me know how it’s going .. share your LOVES of the program .. share your CHALLENGES!  I want to hear it all!
