I stumbled upon this workout a while back and honestly forgot about it. It just popped up again and I’m starting it NOW! Join me if you want some booty pop!

These butt lifting exercises use body weight and multi-directional movements so you can target all of the muscles in your glutes.  Together the best butt lifting exercises will perk up your booty quickly.

Plus, the rep count strategy we’ll be using will help lift and tight the butt, not build mass in your legs.

The new Britni 2.0 {enough is enough}


B2.0You know that moment when you look in the mirror and you shrug your shoulders and say “well, that’s as good as it’s going to get?” I have decided that enough is enough.  No more “this is good as its going to get” no more “no I’d rather stay home”  because I have spent too long being embarrassed and insecure about my weight gain. No more pretending that I’m “totally ok with who I am” that isn’t true when it comes to my outward appearance. I know that I am not the only one and I think its time we all stand up and say enough is enough and take control of us! No matter where you are in your fitness or lack there of.

Enough not loving you

Enough comparing

Enough giving up

Enough embarrassment

Enough not thinking you are worth it


Maybe it’s because its spring, which means new beginnings that this has been in my heart and on my mind a LOT. I believe its time for us who are struggle with weight issues to take control of what may be a little weight gain or possibly out of control situation. Or, maybe its been on my mind because I have a friend who is suffering from potentially life-threatening conditions that are being exacerbated by her 280-300lbs+. I’ve tried so hard to encourage her and sadly with no avail. She has decided that she is too overweight and there is no way she can come back from it, this absolutely brakes my heart. No matter where we are, we CAN come back from anything! I don’t mean to come off harsh towards my friend because I think we are all guilty of thinking ‘nope its too late for me’ We all need a little or a lot of encouragement in our lives right?

My personal story {the cliffs-notes version}

My past: The road to my current weight was filled every emotion you can imagine, heartache, fear, pain, happiness, joy  and love. Ok, that seems totally crazy, let me explain. As a older teenager I was under 90 pounds suffering from mental and physical abuse by someone who I thought was someone they were not…so out of fear and abuse I just got skinner and skinner {I have decided not to share a picture because I don’t like seeing me that way and because I don’t want to give that look any kind of glorification.} Fast forward to being loved and adored by my now husband, getting happy and staying happy and intern gaining weight because I was so happy {ugh the irony} I was not longer in a messed up relationship based on control and fear. I was able to be me and be loved because I was me. It was at the time a healthy weight gain at I went from about 95 to 125 in a 4ish month span….but I continued to gain. Fast forward a little more to having babies that caused minimal weight gain but did however cause my midsection to stretch to the point of being bigger around then I am tall {with my twin pregnancy}

My present: I have struggled with losing the fat around my midsection and losing weight overall since 2010. I’m only 5′ tall so extra weight it very hard to carry and very painful and being 190lbs and above hasn’t been easy. It has been an uphill battle that has been so hard and yes, I have lost momentum and motivation many times and I have given up in the past. Since December 2014 I have lost about 35 pounds!!! I’m was so proud how far I’ve come and I know I still have a long way to reach my goal but thats ok, because we all have to start somewhere and sometime right? Then thing changed and sadly in late February/March of this year I lost a huge amount of momentum {because of heartache surrounding some family deaths} since then I have struggled with getting back into the swing of things. Now here we are in May and I can’t help but look back and think what would’ve been if I did not lose my momentum? Wait! no I can’t play that mind game with myself. I know a lot of you have probably been in those exact same shoes, but I’m here to tell you STOP!!! Don’t do it, Don’t beat yourself up, it is not going to help anything, in fact in my experience from years past when I play that game in my head I end up having even less motivation to restart and that’s just not good for anybody. I will not sit here and play the pity game of ‘poor pitiful me, I could have been at a weight that I wanted to be’ I’m not going to do that and I don’t want you to do it either! Each day is a new day, no matter what last night was like, the last week was like, the last month was like or the last year was like, it does not matter, today is your day to take control and start fresh!!!  Join me and take control with me today! You can do it, I know it! I can too!

Ok, I have NEVER shared a photo like this before…meaning, wearing something that to totally unflattering to my body…not sucking in NOTHING. I’m horribly embarrassed about my midsection and I’m so afraid of someone saying unkind things so I almost don’t even want to click “publish” this I think if I have shared something…anything that encourages one other person its worth it and that is a risk I’m willing to take!


My Long Term Weigh Loss Goal: 60-70 lbs {for me its more of the way I feel and look than a number}

My Short Term Goal {May}: Consistency in my weekly workouts

My Short Term Weight Loss Goal: 15-20 lbs {by the 4th of July}

What about you? I’d love to hear!

I’m going to help us stay motivated is by having weekly workout posts of fave workouts I found on YouTube and Pinterest! Please feel free to share your favorites with me!
