BarreAmped Transformation Challenge! #shaketochange

09 September 2013

Today marks the beginning of my participation in the BarreAmped Transformation Challenge! I'm beyond excited and cannot wait to share my progress with you throughout these 12 weeks. Frankly, having you all there keeps me accountable! 

What better way to start the challenge than to show some "before pictures."Measurements will be taken every four weeks in this challenge but I'll be posting on my thoughts, struggles and recipes every other Monday. Have you ever participated in a fitness challenge such as this?  Do you have any advice for me? 


Arms: 12"

Waist: 30"

Abs: 31.25"

Hips: 40"

Thighs: 24.5"

Meal Plan: Think clean eating meets paleo! Only grass-fed meats, lots of fruits and vegetables. No vegetable oils, white flour, refined sugar, imitation sweetener, and sugar products. The goal is fresh food, nutrient dense food and keeping the glycemic index low. 

My Goals: Over these next 12 weeks I hope to drop at least a few inches from my waist, hips and thighs. I've got a slight pudge around the middle that I would love to have disappear! Also, I'd love to feel strong and have more muscle definition!

Workouts: I am signed up for BarreAmped Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday of this week.

Follow me on Instagram as I capture my daily snacks and meals during the challenge starting today! I'll also be posting recipes that I try out to my Pinterest boards


  1. Ooo I'm excited to follow along! I've never tried barre but I'm always looking for non-borifitness because well, I get bored easily haha

  2. Can't wait to see your progress! Go girl! =)

  3. I'm interested to see what this is all about! I'm thinking if you love it I should try it out! Yay for fitness!

  4. I can't wait to see how many inches you lose!!

  5. Can't wait to see how it goes!!! I have been wanting to try the classes so bad! Maybe after the wedding comes and goes?

  6. I have been using myfitness pal like a boss! Are you on it? We should be friends (caseyamber)

    I posted my inches last week. Bleh. I am hoping that they go down.

  7. good luck lady! I am doing a 30 day yoga challenge - trying to make it to 30 classes, although my schedule may not allow - but no meal planning. But whenever I work out consistently it makes it easier to eat healthier.

  8. Can't wait to see your progress. I want to take a Barre class but haven't found one locally yet. Thanks for being the guinea pig.

  9. I have never taken a Fitness Barre class but I used to be a dancer so I obviously should try it sometime. This sounds like an awesome challenge! Look forward to seeing your progress! You go girl :)
