I don’t like to use the term must lightly, so take me seriously when I say if you work in a more relaxed office, you must look into this dress! When I worked in an office I found it so difficult to find something I could wear for both work and play. Having what felt like two completely separate wardrobes led to me constantly shopping for both weekdays and weekends. But that’s never fun for your spare time or your wallet, so when you find an option for both you’ve hit gold. This is dress is under $50, runs true to size and comes in a few colors. I think the dusty pink would be stunning on someone with olive skin! I like that this is a silky texture and so soft, yet conservative in length for the right office or church. So many times affordable options are ridiculous short or run extremely small.
Now, let’s chat about BBG. I guess I’ve been doing it for about 4 weeks now if you could call it that. I’ll be blunt, it’s boring to me. But it works. In fact, it works better than any other workout I’ve ever tried. I’ve seen a huge difference in muscles I really didn’t know how to strengthen after giving birth. There’s a lot of talk about the price of BBG and yes the packet is more expensive. But honestly, it’s comparable to the price of a monthly membership to a workout class and I saw a difference in just 2 weeks. Sometimes I’ve tried workouts for months on end seeing little to no results. But back to how it isn’t 100% my jam. With BBG, you’re repeating the same set of workouts. I started to get bored and quit the workouts early just because I hated the repetition. I wanted to make sure I was getting in a full workout so I’ve been cheating…I’ll run 2 miles first and then just do 1 set of both workouts and call it a day. I’m personally happy with the results in the sense that I feel my body strengthening. But I MUCH prefer a spin class or barre class, however this just isn’t the season of life where I can sneak in a workout class. Overall, am I glad that I purchased it and do it? Yes. 100%. I like that I have this and can quickly create a workout at home. However, am I having a blast and immensely looking forward to it like I would a cycling class? No. 😉 But this is just week 4 so I’m thinking by week 12 I may enjoy it more! We shall see and I’ll definitely keep you updated! At the end of the day, I really like how I’ve modified it to incorporate my running then do the workout in half. I have a lot more fun with it that way and de-stress more than just doing the exact workout. But everyone is different, so BBG may be perfect for you just the way it is structured. Has anyone else modified BBG?!
