Fit + Fabulous 30 Day Challenge

Happy Friday, everyone!! It is almost the weekend — just one project and two exams stand in the way of me and a relaxing weekend. I hope you are all able to do some relaxing as well. After all..it is the LAST DAY OF SEPTEMBER AND THE FIRST WEEKEND OF OCTOBER. Monday comes with the first in a long line of Halloween Makeup Tutorials and I am SO stoked about it. So be sure to check back to watch those! In the meantime, however, I have an awesome review for you guys today: Courtney Bentley’s Fit + Fabulous 30 Day Challenge!

FIT + FABULOUS 30 DAY CHALLENGE REVIEW

FIT + FABULOUS 30 DAY CHALLENGE REVIEW

About the FIT + FABULOUS 30 DAY challenge:

This program is $99 and is actually a steal for all of the amazing things included. She describes it as

A 30 Day Weight Loss Challenge with meal plan, workout program and smartphone app access as well as coaching with me. Lose weight, get fit and FEEL fabulous!

I mostly took this course to tone my body up, start eating better and bonus I got chat with Courtney on the daily. And holy cow did it deliver.

Workouts: A+

This challenge is VERY easy to get started on — even if you are starting at square one, never having worked out before. I can’t say I am a person who regularly works out. BUT. I can say that in the past month, I have come to stop hating the workouts. And actually, I really enjoy them! They push my body enough that I can FEEL myself getting stronger, but not so hard that I pass out/vomit/generally want to die. 

Meal plans: A+

FIT + FAB 30 DAY CHALLENGE

OH MY GOSH. This was my favorite part of this challenge. Do her meals not look amazing? She made them so they practically look professional! Courtney custom designed a meal plan that worked for me. Not only did she explain all of the important things I needed to know about eating clean and detoxing my body, but she sent me new recipes each week to learn how to make. Now, I am not a cook. But even these meals were easy enough that I didn’t have a problem cooking them. You could pick and choose your favorites, but she included breakfast, lunch and dinner recipes as well as healthy snack alternatives. Because apparently twix bars four times a day is unhealthy?

Results: A+

So…what were my results? Did this course even work? Is it work the $99? First off — yes, it definitely worked. Second off — 100% worth the money. Let’s get you some proof. 

At the beginning of this challenge, I weighed 130 lbs. Remember, I didn’t go into this thinking that I was going to lose weight. Just tone up. I had a 26% body fat and a 28 in waist. My BMI was at a 21.2 (or sitting right in the middle of the “normal” range). 

FIT + FAB 30 DAY CHALLENGE

Keep in mind, everyone has a different body and will get different results. But these were mine:

At the end of this challenge, I weighed 126 lbs. I lost four lbs and it is very noticeable around my hips and waist. I had a 23% body fat and my waist is at 27.5 in. My BMI was 20.1. The real winning situation here is that my legs, abs and back are WAY more defined than they were before starting this challenge. I still had my cheat days where Adam and I stayed in for date night and ordered a pizza (sorry Courtney) but that is ok with me. 

I definitely don’t think I will stop my workouts now that I know what works for me and what kind of exercise I actually grew to like. If you are more diligent at sticking exactly to Court’s meal plans, you would probably lose more weight than I did (like I said — that wasn’t my goal at all). I care more about how I feel when I look in the mirror than when I stand on a scale. And right now, I am feeling pretty dang good about myself.

Courtney tailors her workouts and her meal schedules to fit you and your life. She is sweet and genuinely wants people to get healthy and live their best and happiest lives. That starts with eating right and treating your body with respect. 

What are you waiting for? If you were looking for a sign that told you NOW is the time to start changing your lifestyle….THIS IS IT. Get off the couch and start working on getting to the best version of you that you can. Let Courtney help you with that!

I am so glad you stopped by today, and I hope you stop by next week for the Halloween tutorials!!! See you then!

  2. Lydia Monson | 30th Sep 16

    Those are great results!! It sounds like an easy 30-day challenge. I took one similar and didn’t lose any pounds, but definitely noticed being toner. Score! You’ve inspired me to start working out again πŸ‘ŒπŸ½ PS Your workout gear is so cute!

  3. Stephani | 30th Sep 16

  4. Lauren | 30th Sep 16

    Great post! Congrats on your success! I have been working hard to tone up myself. I am going to start saving so I can do this challenge – I impulse bought a piano keyboard yesterday so I don’t really have the $99…oops! πŸ˜› My current plan is to follow a 1290 calorie-a-day diet (I track this with MyFitnessPal) and burn at least 400 calories a day (not too hard with all my dance classes). It has been pretty successful for me! I lost 5lb of water weight in a week. πŸ™‚ Keep up the good work, love! I’ll be saving this for when I have $99!

    • Taylor Mobley | 30th Sep 16

      Yay to go girl!!!!! Definitely try it when you have the chance!! It was AWESOME.

  14. Shann eva | 30th Sep 16

    Sounds like a great challenge, and you had some great results. I lost all my baby weight, and I’ve been working on toning up too. It’s hard work, but definitely worth it. I actually love working out now. Her meals look awesome too!

  17. Felicita Moncada | 30th Sep 16

    What a great challenge. This is exactly what I need to hold me accountable. I tend to get reall lazy especially when I’ve been working 8-9 hours then have to come home to cook and work on the blog. Not easy finding the time. Not easy at all.

    • Taylor Mobley | 1st Oct 16

      There aren’t enough hours in the day, are there Felicita!

  18. MyTeenGuide | 30th Sep 16

    This is an interesting challenge and the results are great. I would also like to do a workout challenge.

  23. karen | 1st Oct 16

    I think I was sold at the pink kettle bell! haha… But those meals also look so delish and love the ease of this program! What a deal! Totally checking into it!

    • Taylor Mobley | 1st Oct 16

  26. Teresa | Simply Made Fun | 1st Oct 16

    I keep telling myself that I’m going to start working out again (I had a baby a year ago, it’s way past time!) but I always get busy and don’t make time for it. You’re getting me motivated to get off my butt and just go for it!

    • Taylor Mobley | 1st Oct 16

      So glad teresa!!! πŸ™‚ It is so important!

  27. Jessica A Harlow | 1st Oct 16

    This sounds like a really reasonable rate for the everything that comes with the weight loss challenge! I especially like that it includes personal coaching! That is key for me!

    • Taylor Mobley | 1st Oct 16

      Me too Jessica! if nobody keeps me accountable, I won’t do it.

  28. Angela @marathonsandmotivation.com | 1st Oct 16

    This Challenge sounds Great! I need to get back on track, so loved reading this. Also, you look great…that pink kettle bell is awesome πŸ™‚

  29. Foodie Finds Home | 1st Oct 16

    While I personally wouldn’t be interested in her meal plans, I definitely would be interested in seeing what her workouts are like. I am always interested in mixing up my routines and trying new things. I love that you had pizza night (pizza ftw) LOL. The fact that there is a smartphone app has me really intrigued and I’m looking forward to hitting Courtney up and learning more about her programs.

  30. Kari (Happy Coconuts Travel Blog) | 1st Oct 16

    You gotta have your cheat days but nice work sticking with it!!

  31. Amanda | 1st Oct 16

    Amazing results! I might look into this, I just need help in the toning area.

  32. Amber Nelson | 1st Oct 16

    Sounds like a great challenge and you have all the tools to be successful!

  33. Kathy Haan | 1st Oct 16

    That’s awesome!!! I lost 123lbs, and it was the hardest thing I’d ever done…but also the most rewarding. Good luck on your journey!

  34. Christine - The Choosy Mommy | 1st Oct 16

    Once you start a workout routine that you love, it makes it so much easier to keep going. Congrats on your success and keep on going!!

  35. Amber Myers | 1st Oct 16

    I really should do a challenge but I like to eat too much.

  36. Melanie Frost | 1st Oct 16

    Do I really need to exercise? I need her to come to my house and drag me off the couch first. But in all seriousness, that’s awesome that you achieved such great results so quickly. Sounds like an awesome plan.

  37. Blythe Alpern | 1st Oct 16

    I’m a big fan of 30-day challenges. I think they help to motivate you because you are working towards an end goal. I’ve done a couple and I’ve really like the results and how I felt spurred on to continue. This looks like a great program.

  38. chaza | 1st Oct 16

    love your leggings. Sounds like this is great one. You have done an awesome effort.
