OSG Bikini Body Boot Camp

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 26, 2009


Good morning!

Happy 1 day til Friday.

Today is a busy day for me! My mom and stepdad arrive tonight and the house is still a dusty mess. Eric and I were up cleaning last night until 12:30 and I will be cleaning most of today.

I can’t wait to see them. They live out West so I don’t get to see them too often. My mom and I have already scheduled Friday to be a baking day- how fun is that? :) I can’t wait to have her taste test some of my Glo products.

So as you probably saw, this morning is a Fitness post! And not just any fitness post, a fun bikini boot camp challenge!

But before I get to that, please let me tell you about my fun workout yesterday!

Wednesday Workout details:

  • Treadmill, 4.0-4.2 mph, incline 10%
  • Duration: 47 mins.
  • Max heart rate: 159 bpm
  • Avg heart rate: 143 bpm
  • Feel the burn: 375 kcals

I ran intervals again! It was day two of introducing runs back into my workout. I ran a 1 minute interval at speed 4.2 mph at every 5 min. marker. So I ran one minute from minute 5-6, 10-11, 15-16, etc etc. All the way to min. 45-46.

Remember, I am only going at speed 4.2 mph, so I am taking it very easy from the get go.

Intervals are a fun way to torch calories and make the time go by faster! Did you know you actually burn more calories doing intervals that you would at a consistent pace?

I made a video of my training since the injury so I hope to get that up soon. :)


OSG Bikini Body Boot Camp



Spring is now here, and summer won’t be far off! Are you feeling ready to step into that teeny tiny bikini yet? I’m sure not!

Oh She Glows will be hosting the 1st Annual Bikini Body Boot Camp until June 1st. I am challenging everyone who wants to feel good and look good this summer to join this challenge. I will be featuring weekly segments on OSG to detail my progress, add motivating workouts, tips, and tricks to getting into your bikini for the summer. I will also highlight other participants stories.


Who doesn’t want to feel great in a swimsuit? I think we all do!

All you have to do to:

1. Email me at [email protected] and tell me you want to sign up!

2. Take a ‘before’ picture of yourself in a bikini or if you prefer, shorts and a tank top

3. Take your measurements and write them down somewhere safe. (Waist, hip, bust, arm, thigh, etc)

4. Leave a comment below and tell me what body part you would like to change the most!


Note: You do not have to send me a picture to participate in this challenge!

That’s it! At the end of OSG Bikini Body Boot Camp, I will ask you to take an after picture as well as your measurements again.

If you wish, you can send me your results and I will be judging the winner. Remember, if you do not wish to submit a picture of yourself in a bikini, no worries. Just take one in shorts and a tank. Judging will not be based solely on pictures, it will be based on your story, triumphs, and fitness/dietary improvements as well. I realize that 2 months isn’t a long time to make tons of noticeable changes so do not despair!

What’s in it for you?

Well, three awesome prize packs, that’s what!

To celebrate your success, I will be baking up some healthy Glo Bakery goodies for our 3 winners!

3rd place: To be announced

2nd place: Your choice of any Glo Bakery bread or a dozen muffins

1st Prize: Super Glo Bakery treat pack: Includes a dozen muffins, a dozen cookies, and a dozen Pumpkin Spice ‘n All Things Nice bars.

I will also possibly be offering mid-way prizes at the end of April to keep our motivation going! Stay tuned for details.

If all goes well I will be putting together a weekly or biweekly OSG Newsletter including the details of my Bikini Body Boot Camp. I will be featuring weekly exercise challenges and workouts and new things to add to your diet. I will also be asking participants to send me any of their successful tricks and tips should you have any!

Alright, who’s with me??? Lets make this the best summer yet!

I’m off to take my ‘before’ picture and measurements. :)

I definitely need this. Especially since I will be in The Netherlands in June. My regions are my abs followed by my hips and my arms.


TanyaS March 26, 2009 at 8:49 pm

I’m all in with you. No time like a challenge to widdle down the pear! I’m all over thigh reduction & some belly bloat.


Yasmin March 26, 2009 at 10:02 pm

I would love to tighten my abs and firm that tush !


Wiggs (The Beholder) March 26, 2009 at 10:32 pm

Dude, I used to only hate my butt, but now it’s my upper-arms and abs, too. :( I’d kill to still have my swimmer’s body!


Meredith (Pursuing Balance) March 26, 2009 at 10:33 pm

Yes! I want to tone all over!


Rebeca March 26, 2009 at 10:47 pm

I am so excited for this… it’s just the push I need :)

I think my biggest “trouble zone” is my waist… I’d love to shed a few inches there and maybe throw in some defined biceps and shoulders :)


Georgia March 26, 2009 at 11:07 pm

okay okay.. I’m in..
I love myself.. I think I look great… UNTIL I CAN NO LONGER SQUEEZE MY BUTT into ANY of my OLD JEANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If I could live in a mirrorless Mu-Mu world I would be happy… :( But I’m in!


Beth March 26, 2009 at 11:17 pm

I suppose the part of my body I would like to change the most is my lower body. I definitely wouldn’t mind trimming and toning up my legs.:)


strawberry March 26, 2009 at 11:47 pm

i’m so in! i’m e-mailing you right now :D
i most want to change my stomach and my thighs!

Jenn (eating bender) March 27, 2009 at 2:25 am

Awesome!! Would you mind if I email you once I get back to school with all the info?


Jenn (eating bender) March 27, 2009 at 2:25 am

P.S. Back to school = this Sunday :)


nic March 27, 2009 at 6:09 am

i can’t wait to read all your tips and posts!!
thanx again!!!


Chelsea March 27, 2009 at 8:28 am

I’m interested in doing the challenge. I don’t actually have a bikini right now (I guess that’s what happens when you live in Wisconsin) BUT I’d love to feel confident running in shorts and a sports bra this summer. So my goal is to work on my abs and love handles through a combination of eating better and doing lots of core work (and running, as always).

Still need to take my measurements but I’ve got some “before” pictures.


Valerie March 27, 2009 at 11:07 am

I just emailed you to sign up :)
I’d like to work on flattening my stomach more and actually getting some decent ab muscles – mine are pretty weak! I’d also like to slim down my thighs – I’m finally starting to lose weight from them (after losing 30 pounds overall.. took long enough) so hopefully I can make some progress on them too.


Keltie March 27, 2009 at 11:30 am

I think this is great, hopefully it will be an excellent motivator! I would like to work on my stomach the most, after having a baby it needs a lot of work;)


Holly March 27, 2009 at 11:42 am

What a great idea! I hope it’s not too late to participate? I’ll get my pics to you tonight or hopefully tomorrow. :-) I don’t want to lose any weight, but I’d love to tone – who doesn’t want to be more toned? hahaha. I’m excited!


Sarah March 27, 2009 at 11:58 am

This is so cool! I have actually never really worn a bikini except for when I was a kid. I have been overweight or obese most of my life until 2007 when I started turning things around.

I’m at a good weight now but I definitely have some “Trouble” areas, most specifically my stomach. Sadly, I am plagued by excess skin but I’m sure some good workouts could at least help a little bit!

Thanks :)


Meg- Live. Love. Laugh. Eat. Learn. March 28, 2009 at 10:15 am

I’m 2 days late, but sign me up. I’ll do the measurements,etc. tomorrow morning.

Glad to see you’re runnning again! That’s great!


Whitney March 28, 2009 at 12:57 pm

I’m down. I’ll email you with all that jazz Sunday night when I’m back in town and have my camera. You’re awesome! This is such a good idea!


ginny March 29, 2009 at 7:34 pm

I’m in! I want to focus on my stomach.


Melissa March 29, 2009 at 9:41 pm

OOH,I’m in!! I’ll email you tomorrow from my work address, which is what I use all the time.

Body part I’d most like to change? My thighs and rear end :)


Sarah W. March 30, 2009 at 8:06 am

I’d like to trim the fat on my buddha bellah and maybe start seeing some semblance of a waist! also the back fat has GOT.TO.GO.


Alison March 30, 2009 at 10:00 pm

Hi Angela! Is it too late to join up?! I just joined a gym TODAY because I realized I only have two months to tone up before I move to Australia and see my boyfriend for the first time in 5 months! EEEEKK! Haha, if its not too late, I am going to be hardcore toning my arms, tummy and thighs… and if it is too late, I am going play along anyways! Thanks for the motivation :)


Ruby April 2, 2009 at 1:45 pm

I’m in! I’d like to change my stomach the most, but perhaps changing my legs would be just as satisfying and more attainable, as I’ll be running alot from now on!


Crunchy Granola Girl April 27, 2009 at 10:18 am

Okay I caved- I’ll be taking my pic & measurements tonight! I would like to work on my core & tone up my stomach. I’ve never been good about doing crunches or strength training but I’m hoping this will give me the motivation I need. Thanks Angela!
