Hey POPsters!!!

Congrats! You unlocked the code! Here is the new workout calendar for the next month. This time we are sectioning off the body into upper, lower, and core. Every day you will start off with a short but intense burst of cardio and then we target the specific muscle groups of the day. I also want you to run a mile on Mon and Fri. Not leisurely. For speed. Because when you focus on improving your time and not just physically whittling down your thighs or your calves…the strong and toned legs will come. I put space on the calendar for you to record your times. I would like you to tweet me your speed every Mon and Fri so I can track improvement!

Also, #MarchMakeover is all about bringing the best out in you and figuring out what drives you and makes you feel most confident and beautiful. That’s why there are tasks I need you to do every Sunday. These are self-improvement things that are fun and will give you time to really pay attention to yourself and see what makes you happy.

Let’s get made over this March! C’mon – now is the time!!!

Please print this out, hang it on your wall, and stick to it.  Tweet/Insta/FB me when you do! I wanna see your pretty face next to your torture map for the next month :)

<3 Cassey

  • Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4
    year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    • Tali says:

      hahaha awwwww poor baby TRAUMATIZED FOR EVER! hope she feels better.

  • Great info. Lucky me I came acrosss your site by chance (stumbleupon).
    I’ve saved it for later!

    waiting for may calendar

  • Pleun says:

    Hiiiiiii!

    OMG I absolutely loooooveeeee your videos, Cassey!

    Just one question: when will the april calendar be online?

    Thank you so much!

  • Danielle says:

    Waiting for the April calendar feels like getting a present! Can’t wait ;)!

  • Trinity says:

    WHEN IS THE APRIL ONE COMING OUT

  • Hannah says:

    She tweeted about 3 hours ago saying she was working on the April calendar! But I haven’t seen any updates since then.

  • Ruth says:

    I started these workouts around spring break, about half-way through March. I am trying to drop weight for a hip replacement surgery, and was overwhelmed by the daunting task of losing weight without being able to run or walk, and having no time in my elementary music teacher/mom schedule to squeeze in trips to the pool. Then I found these YouTube videos and workout calendar. I actually WANT to get up at 4:30 every morning to get in a full workout! I can’t do everything yet (I just dropped my jaw and stared at pop cardio dance, for instance) and don’t expect to be able to any time soon. I have also found inspiration from this video about an injured paratrooper who never gave up on his fitness goal: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=qX9FSZJu448 I think of him every time I get frustrated with my body’s current limits and the 50 pounds that need to come off.

    CAN’T WAIT FOR APRIL!!!

    • Viviane Bossina says:

      Hey Ruth!

      I’m so glad that you found Cassey and blogilates! Stay strong always because you have it in you.

      Good luck on your journey. :D

  • emolina says:

    Will the April calendar be up by tomorrow?

  • Nancy P. says:

    I discovered your website and youtube page a few days ago and I am so excited to start workout more because of you! You make it seem so fun with your energetic personality and your positive motivation!! I can’t wait for the April calendar to come out! April is gonna be the start of my new healthy life! :)

  • Grace says:

    will there be an April calendar?!! I need one!

  • Bonnie says:

    Gosh that March calendar really did feel like a makeover. I’m not entirely where I wanna be yet, but I’m a work in progress! I cannot wait for April. I love this site, the YouTube channel and the calendars :D. Thanks so much Cassey!!

    Quick question, when is the April calendar going to be up?

    • Diana says:

      Hi Bonnie! Have these calendars really worked for you??? Do you recommend them?

  • Payton says:

    When will Aprils calendar be posted?!?!

  • Impatience is my name ;) says:

    when is the april calender out?:)xx

  • Macy says:

    i have an question am i too young for this calenders ? is it too hard for me ? (im 14 years old ) :)

    • Remy says:

      I don’t think so.
      I’m going to do this and I’m only 15…

    • lauren says:

      i was wondering the same thing;; im also 14

    • Mafer says:

      I don’t think so, i’m 14 too and I’ve done them since december (:

  • LilBugsd says:

    Calendar for April…?

  • Eqha says:

    I just came across your youtube channel and blog few days ago and I just can’t stop watching/reading them!!!! I’m so eager to try out your calender plan and wondering when will the April’s edition be out??

    • maya says:

      So excited for next month too! Thanks so much cassey for these videos im going to get in the best shape of my life in the next 90 days! I just started your videos three days ago following the march calendar my legs and stomach are already showing improvement! only5 more pounds till im at 115! My abs are peaking out and ready to shine for summer :D

  • Nicole says:

    I just have a quick question for you. A little less than a year ago I had to have major back surgery, and because of this I am not able to do certain things I was before hand. The biggest thing it has effected is my ability to run. Because of the surgery I am no longer allowed to run, so my question is what would be the best thing to substitute in place of running. I can swim and bike, but is there anything else?

  • MrsRell says:

    When will the April calender be posted??

  • Sam says:

    okay question, I know you need to do all of the vids listed each day. but for example today. do you do 4x fat melting and then do the others? or just once per vid listed?

    • Ariel says:

      After checking how long the other videos are, I think it’s safe to say only do Fat Melting 1 time.

      • Sam says:

        Thanks. I only had and I didn’t want to under workout just for a misunderstanding.

    • Shipra says:

      u are supposed to do it only once

  • Allison says:

    I am kinda new to this so I was wondering, what does the “BB#:” stand for when its listed before a workout?? Btw this site has had a huge impact on my life in the past month. Thanks. :)

    • Kristin says:

      BB stands for Bikini Blaster, a series Cassey’s done last year. :)

      • Allison says:

        Haha I feel dumb now.. I should have figured that out.

  • Kristin says:

    Cassey, how can you put the 100 Burpee Challenge, the VS Bombshell Butt workout and Bikini Blaster 6 in ONE day? I am dead and I haven’t even finished everything yet! :D
    I think maybe today is really a little too tough while Monday 18th was a little too easy, for me anyways.

  • mara says:

    I am so confused on how to follow the marchmakeover calender and at videos to watch can anyone tell me how?

    • Kristin says:

      Each day focuses on another body part, on Saturday you’re supposed to do a full body work out and Sunday is your rest day. (Don’t skip the rest day, it is very important that you give your body time to recover).
      For the full body workout on Saturdays you can either do the POP Pilates dvd or you just choose 4 of Cassey’s full body workout videos that add up to about one hour. To find them just search something like “Blogilates full body” on youtube.
      From Monday to Friday you do each video that is listed for that day. You’ll find them by simply typing the name from the calender in the youtube search bar. E.g. if you search “Bikini Blaster” you’ll find all the videos from the series. You can add “Blogilates” to find them more easily.
      For me, some videos are blocked because of the music in it. If that’s the case for you too just replace them with a similar video that focuses on the same body part or if it’s a cardio video, just choose another one. Cassey has plenty of videos. Just make sure you listen to your body and have fun! :)

      • Spacegirlz says:

        Could I get a few examples of a full body workout? I did type in blogilates full body and got a few that say pop Pilates and few other things…are we suppose to do the ones that say pop pilates on the sats?

        • Kristin says:

          Yeah you could do e.g. “POP Pilates for Beginners – Total Body Workout” or “POP Pilates: Total Body Bangin’ Workout”. :)

  • ellen says:

    are you going to do all the thing that the calendar says in one day? like you are going to run 1 miles and do all the youtube videos on monday that it says in monday? or are you going to do just one youtube video? please can someone explain! (sorry for my bad english..)

    • Kristin says:

      Actually you’re supposed to do everything on that day. But if you’re a beginner don’t overdo it! It’s better to start slow and go a little farther everyday than to overdo it on the first day and not be able to do anything for the week after. Of course you shouldn’t stop as soon as you start feeling ‘the burn’ i.e. your muscles work. Just listen to your body. You know best what’s good for you and what you can and cannot do (yet). And always have fun!

      • alison says:

        My first time doing it was on a saturday. my friend had shown it to me. i instantly fell in love. today wil be my second day. i do all the workoutson the day and don’t over ush myself because over time you will get better and not even realize ;)

  • […] in total (morning and evening). And I am planning to also combine two of the days I missed on the calendar […]

  • Gine says:

    I’m wondering if it would be possible for you to post a sort of “Index” along with the workout calendar that links to each video for that particular day. Or maybe you’re already doing this somewhere and I’m just being blind. I’m having a hard time finding some of these works outs.Thanks ;)

    • Nicole says:

      I agree with this post! That would be a lot easier :)

    • Nichole says:

      She did something like that under her “90 Day Challenge” under the meal plans tab (: If you scroll pass the meal plan link there should be an exercise plan. She has links that brings you to “Back workouts” “Arm workouts” etc. if i can’t find the video for a particular day then i just replace it with whatever video that’s focusing on the same part of the body.

    • Kristin says:

      I think someone made playlists for each day. Cassey posted the link on facebook.

  • Rocio says:

    When you see *new video* which one do we do?

    • Teresa says:

      She posts a new video every week so *new video* is her most recent video.

  • Monika says:

    First time doing a workout calendar! But i’m starting half-way…Do we eat what we usually eat with this calendar or follow a meal plan too? I usually did 3 Blogilates videos everyday a few moths back and 6 is going to be suicide..cant wait :)

  • Rebekkah says:

    If we follow this calendar, do we need to do additional cardio or is enough already included for weight loss???

  • Krissy says:

    Hey guys! I have a question. If you’re someone starting the calendar halfway through the month, should you do the workouts from the first day of the calendar or those from the day you begin it on? Like should you do today’s workout for the 14th or the workout for the 4th?

    • krys says:

      I started today also. I did the workout for the 14th because there will be another calendar coming out next month so that helps me catch up and stay on track.

    • Henna says:

      Hi there! I have the same problem!! I think you should carry on with the dates and then when next months calendar comes out , start from the beginning. But If you don’t want to do that then do one of the previous calendars from the beginning. -Hope this helps. XOXO

    • Benita says:

      I started late too! But I just started on the workouts for the day I started and am already getting awesome results. (:

  • Sam says:

    I know you say run a mile on Monday and Friday but what if you can’t due to bad knees? Is there an alternative for this?

    • Nicole says:

      I just do a very brisk walk

      • Sam says:

        Thanks, I have been doing some extra cardio vids or classes those days to try and make up for lack of running.

    • Devon says:

      you can also try swimming

  • Janet says:

    hey, guys i’m barely starting this calender and i was wondering if we have to do all of the workouts that are there or only one from the whole list. Please let me know, it would be soooo helpful! thanks ^^

    • Candace says:

      I was wondering the same thing…surely we only have to do one a day. Might depend on what level you are at. Try one of them and if you can do more than do another…that is what I am going to try until told differently.

      • Rebecca says:

        You’re supposed to do all of the videos for the day, so there will be lets say 5 videos for one day, you’re supposed to do all of them, so that you get about an hour of physical activity. It’s what the calendar is designed for. However, if you feel like it’s too much, you don’t have to do it all.

        • ashikakyo says:

          should we do it all at once? or we can apart them in one day as long as we do all of them?

          • Kristin says:

            I think it would be best to do them all at once because the first one or two videos are usually ones which get your heart rate up and warm you up for the following videos.
            But if it really doesn’t fit your schedule to do them all at once I think it would be better to split them up than to not work out at all. Just make sure you always warm up first!

  • Sabrina says:

    Can I just give everyone some tips? I lost 5 pounds in a month just from clean eating!! I’m so happy and since my goal is only to lose 20lbs, it’s a big chunk! I haven’t had soda, white bread/rice, candy, chocolate, sweets, cookies and other foods like that in WEEKS! Hopefully that’s helpful to y’all! Thanks Blogilates for being sooo awesome! <3

  • […] the answer came to me, work out. Then, an even more amazing thing happened, I did. I got out my Blogilates calendar for March and drank copious amounts of water, and gently worked out so as not to tick my […]

  • […] Workout Calendar […]

  • ashikakyo says:

    Hey I am new here too, and I am wondering that if I need to run that day (Monday and Friday) do I have to do all the work out at the same time. I mean, one after the other. Or it’s ok to do 1 mile running in the morning and then do the rest when I am at home? (I don’t have a treadmill at home, so I go to school to run) I am just not sure if that’s going to weaken my work out result.

  • Dena says:

    I’m so glad this month includes running! I’ve been thinking about getting back into running, but needed the push. I really love doing it, but I’m sooo slow and I’m just not a great runner.

    The first day I definitely overdid it and my asthma started acting up, which I was really surprised about because my asthma is really minor (I actually found out my inhaler expired like 3 years ago, oops!). I managed to do better today without having any asthma problems, but I’m really excited to see where I am at the end of the month. I actually want to do a 5k this fall, so I think even if the next calendar doesn’t include running I’ll probably keep going so I can work up to the 5k distance.

  • Alice says:

    So okay I thought I could do this in one shot but I totally can’t.
    Do you guys think it’s fine if I split the workout in two?

  • Georgia says:

    I’m so glad i found your youtube videos and website! I’ve been going to the gym almost everyday for about a month now but i quit losing weight. Your workouts are a challenge but they work!

  • Jessica says:

    AHHH i love this calendar! I’m excited because I’ve recently found your videos and have been LOVING them lol, but I have one question. When doing some of the core workouts, (the ones where you’re lying on your back with your legs up and you rotate them around in circles) my left hip cracks/pops every time I do a full circle. Is that bad? And are there ways to get it to not pop?
    I really appreciate your motivating videos and would love to hear your advice :) Thanks for everything you do for us girls trying to get fit!

    • Danielle says:

      This is prolly late and you probably found the answer, but the same thing happened to me. I stopped doing those because the hip cracking was uncomfortable. I researched it and it said that it is usually because of tight hip flexors. You have to stretch them out everyday. Her new stretch video really does the trick. My hips stopped cracking after a few days of stretching and now I can do the workouts.

  • Kyla says:

    Super excited to start! It’s a week late but better late then never!! I work at Planet Fitness and used to workout there all the time. But now when I work out if feels like I’m at work and not working out… :/ So I’m doing this now and I’m pumped!!!!

  • Sendy says:

    I don’t completely understand this calendar. I am new here, could somebody explain how this works, please?

    • Taief says:

      you just have to take the name of the workout that is registered in the calendar and copy it on youtube so you will see the workout that you have to do :)

  • Gabby says:

    OMG! Your workout calendar for this month has already helped me a ton! I look and feel stronger already. Also, I had been at a plateau for about 2 months (my scale would not budge!) but I weighed in this week and lost a pound and a half thanks to this calendar! Thank you so so so much!

  • Karissa says:

    I am so excited to start this month! Obviously i am starting a week late but oh well! I used to be a gym rat but I got a little obsessive and had to take a brake. Now I am trying to get back into it but with a different approach. I have never done any diet/workout program with an online community before but I am hoping that it will help me keep a little more of a balance outlook on diet and exercise. I am a recovered anorexic so having balance in my life has always been a challenge!

  • I have been following and learning about Blogilates for months now, and am finally getting involved! I don’t know what took me so long. I just downloaded the March calendar and am ready to challenge myself so that I can get fit as I’ve always wanted to! I live in Norway with my Norwegian-American boyfriend and have been trying to get a yoga mat, but things are so expensive here we’re considering buying one when we are back in my hometown in Virginia in a couple of weeks. Two questions for POPsters and Cassie: First, do you think a yoga mat could fit in a regular sized suitcase? Second, flying to the US from Norway takes up an entire day (leaving here at 6am and arriving in Virginia at 9pm local time)…is there an efficient way that I can stay physically active while traveling across the Atlantic Ocean? I also hear airplane food is quite fatty… My boyfriend and I would both love and appreciate the advice! :) Happy to be a brand new POPster!

    -Cary

    • Emma says:

      Yoga mat can ABSOLUTELY fit in a suticase. Just fold it roughly rather than rolling it up. On long haul flights I find stretching works best as you don’t need a heap of space and you’re less likely to bother anyone. It’s also amazing to get everything flowing again. I also get really cold seating in my seat for hours on end so I step my feet (like i’m walking sitting down haha) to get the blood moving.

  • Anonymous***** says:

    love this website POPsters.

  • karen says:

    does any body else leg hurt like really bad pain or is it just me? i cant do any of the planks my left leg kills me;( but its been like this since i had my first daughter :( cant let that get in way though :)

  • Jenny says:

    I’m soo excited to start this!! I want toned legs and abs for the summer, I really hope this helps!! Let’s do this!!!!!

  • Marissa says:

    Do we still get to have a YOLO meal once a week, every week of this month?

  • Samantha says:

    I think today’s workout was the most frustrating. Yesterday was targeted towards arms, today I could barely hold myself up for the nonstop plank. Oh well, it’s over. :)

  • Britney says:

    Is the gangnam style cardio for today the same as pay gangnam cardio? Could u put up a link to the videos for that day?

  • Kristin says:

    Hey POPsters,
    I’ve been working out to Cassey’s videos for a few weeks already but now I’ve decided to give the new calendar a try. So far I’ve been doing good, definitely having fun and feeling the burn ;D But I have a question: When it says that you should do one of the cardio/HIIT videos like the Heart Throbber, are you supposed to do it 4 or 5 times in a row like Cassey usually suggests in the info box? Or do you do it only once because you have to do the other listed workouts as well? Like today I’ve been doing every video once in the morning but since I ate pretty bad in the afternoon, I did the Heart Throbber another four times. But it was so hard! I don’t think I could keep that up several days a week… Thanks for your help!

    • Rosemary says:

      When it says to do one of the cardio/HIIT videos I just do it once since it is paired with the other videos. I’m pretty sure that when you do the cardio vids 4 or 5 times in a row it is because you are doing that as your cardio workout for the day . In other words, when you’re doing that specific video by itself as a workout. Though in the past calendars we’ve had to repeat the full cycle of combined cardio videos for each day (Cardio Crazies) :)

    • Samantha says:

      I think you only do it once since there are 5 other workouts targeting your core.

    • Kristin says:

      Thank you, Rosemary and Samantha!

  • Kim says:

    Did anyone else find the March 5 workout hard?

  • Ester says:

    It was my first time doing al the videos for the day…. And i almost died…. You’re awesome!! I can’t believe that you can keep talking and smiling.. (Sorry for my english, i’m from Spain). Muchos besos desde España!!!

  • Lila says:

    Very useful calendar. Good work. Too bad I’m such a lazy beginner. But I will try, I swear.
    Have a good March everyone. :-)

  • Jennifer says:

    Im so excited for this new challange my problemim sp motivated at the beginning then gradually just stat to give up im so glad for this blog because atleast i know im not alone……i love it!!!!1 Here’s to the march challange..

  • Kayla says:

    Im a major newbie, so do we do all these workouts at once or do we do them all throughout the day? I assumed all at once but wouldn’t you die if you did them all? Thanks!

  • Tiffany says:

    Instead of running a mile, is it alright to do a video listed on that day? It’s still snowing and cold outside and it’s March; would that be an exception?

    • Lori says:

      I think if you substitute the mile with a good cardio video then it should be fine, as long as you REALLY work hard on the cardio!

  • Gibson says:

    Hi! Lately I have been a little confused on how many pounds I should lose. I am 5 ft and 3 inches tall and weigh 118 pounds and I am the early teens. Please help. Thanks :)

    • Kristen says:

      You sound at a healthy to me, without knowing anything else about you. I am 5’2 and the weight range the doctor suggests is something like 110 to 125 lbs with nothing but height being considered. I don’t think you need to lose anything, just maintain. Which basically means eat well and get your exercise.

  • Carmen says:

    I forgot about something! Since spring is here, could you post some ideas for detox? After the long winter and all? Thanks!!!

    PS I already started the calendar and after day 1 even my fingers hurt :))), but I am sticking to it, even doing on Sundays so I won’t skip a day since I will be on vacation for a week. Can’t wait to show a bit of skin in Italy :)))

  • Carmen says:

    I was wondering if you could post a ‘green’ recipe for the weekend to come. I was thinking of making broccoli with tuna an pasta and some low fat cheese, but it’s probably a bad idea. And also some snacks for the evening… I have a crazy work program so I can’t stick to any diet, but I would like to be able to have a low fat snack in the evening (now I’m drinking a smoothie with kiwi and almond milk, green too! :))

    • Amy says:

      Green smoothies are a great quick idea. I usually mix spinach or other greens with some almond milk and fruits (whatever I have but usually include banana). I have made it with protein powder too if I feel I need that. Also love coffee protein shakes for a little extra energy but if you’re eating clean these aren’t totally clean.

  • Faith says:

    Hi Cassey! I absolutely LOVE your blog! I’m always finding something new to incorporate into my daily life :) I was just wondering if there was any way you could possibly start posting more “beginner” videos. I am 5’4 and weigh 260 pounds & I am having trouble with following some of the current ones. I’m sure a lot of other POPsters would love these videos as well :)

    • Kristen says:

      If you look at the top menu bar it says “Workout Videos” then it drops down to “Series” and then “Beginners” When I first started following Cassey I could not even do the beginner videos. I just did my best at continuing to do the moves at a slower pace during their time in the workout. If I couldn’t do them at all, coughburpeescough, I would do however many I could and then do a previous move until the next one on the video came up. If that makes sense. As long as you are trying your hardest at your skill level, you’ll feel improvement as time goes on. Also, In my opinion, if you look for her oldest videos they feel a bit easier even if they are not listed as beginner. Hope this helps with finding some material to follow and good luck. :)

      • Lesley J says:

        I’m just starting the routine…do I do the beginner workouts starting out? Also on the calendar, do you do all of the workouts listed for that day. Just trying to get the hang of how the program works so I’m doing it correctly. Any help or info would be appreciated. Thanks! :-)

  • Nikita says:

    So are you supposed to run 1 mile? Or is it okay if you run and then walk for a little bit? It’s kind of a silly question but I was just wondering:) xx

    • Amy says:

      I would say if you can’t run the mile, run and then walk. Or do intervals. You could even try running one song, walking a song and then running a song until the workouts over.

      • Nikita says:

        Okay, so as long as you complete the mile, it’s okay?:)
        Thankyou!:)

        • Asha says:

          Yup, just do the mile as fast as you can :)

  • Cassie says:

    Does anyone else ever have trouble finding the workouts on the channel? Or are the workouts listing not the exact title as it is on her youtube channel?

    • Amy says:

      They are all on youtube….just search the title. If you can’t find it, add pop pilates or blogilates to the search

      • Hadassah says:

        Yeah I can’t hardly find any of them….

  • Suzi says:

    Hell yea this month i’m definitely gonna do it! All the workouts of the respective day.
    I tried to do January and February workouts but at the end of the month, in the last week i always stop.. T.T
    If I need to lose some fat (i have on my belly, legs, waist and arms) should i do more cardio exercises?
    Ah yes.. And I have a lot of celullite on especially on my thighs, butt and legs… Since I’d started to exercise, like almost everyday, the celullite is more visible now.. T.T What should I do?

    Hey everyone!! I’m new to this whole thing, and I was wondering how we should eat while doing the workouts this month? Should we just pick a meal plan or something?

    Thanks!! :-)

    • Monica says:

      You can choose a meal plan on Cassey’s website, but I would recommend if you’re new to it all, start slow. Focus on eating wholesome, unprocessed foods and drinking lots of water rather than restricting yourself to a certain diet. I also find that at my level, doing every single video on Cassey’s workout calendar is pretty full on. In the past, I usually end up burning out after a week or two, so I’ve modified it to about 20-30 minutes a day which is much more achievable for where my fitness levels are right now. If you’re new to fitness in general, you might like to try that as well. Good luck!

      By the way.. awesome name! ;)

  • Jen says:

    Hi Cassey!
    I am new to your blog, I found you through pinterest, I reprinted your inner thigh workout and my cousin (and best friend) seen it and said we should start doing it! That made me go to YouTube where I found your page and was so impressed by your workouts. I think you are such a doll, and the way you talk to everyone during your workouts makes me feel like I’m working out with a friend :) my cousin and I are committed to doing your #marchmadness calendar, and I just had a question about the new video on Fridays. I didn’t see any new videos and I wasn’t sure what we were supposed to do…
    I am so excited that I found your blog, I have a BIG trip planned at the beginning of May, and I still have 40 lbs to lose. I know I won’t lose it all in 2 months, but I’m really hoping that by doing your program I will at least lose enough to maybe wear the bikini I bought for the trip. Thank you so much for a great program and the workout boost I’ve been looking for!

  • Anna says:

    What does *NEW VIDEO!!* mean? I don’t get it.

    • Monica says:

      Cassey releases a new video every week on YouTube – on Fridays, go to youtube.com/blogilates and the new vid should be right there on the front page!

  • Jaa Moka says:

    I really like your workouts, they make me sweat bullets. Lolz. My core is not as strong as I would like it to be but I’m sure that these workouts will help me get there. =)

  • Marta says:

    Hey Cassey! So today I went to chill with my friends, and everyone was trying on prom dresses, which made me determined to fulfill the workout calendar this month! I really need to become healthy again! MARCHMAKEOVER here I come!

  • Kerstyn says:

    Any advice on whether it’s okay to do these workouts staggered throughout the day? I think I have a better chance of getting through each day’s workouts if I know that I don’t have to do them all at once. I’m not always able to set aside such a big chunk of time at once, but I don’t want to be ruining my results by spreading the workout out if it’s not meant to be done that way.

    • Viola says:

      There’s no problem with doing that if it fits your schedule better ^_^

    • Amy says:

      I am not sure if there is any difference in effectiveness (I would assume not) but I do split the workouts from time to time. I get up very early to do this before work and, honestly, some days the extra sleep wins out and I can’t do the whole thing. If that happens I will finish it at night. This month, on running days, I will do the run at night, at the gym.

  • karen says:

    hey guys im new to this like on day one do i do all the videos four times or do all the videos once?? im confused?? someone help please

    • Amy says:

      All the videos once. So today you should have done a 1 mile run, Trafalgar trimdown, the new video (or a substitute because I don’t think it was posted), Awesomesauce Arms and the Backless Dress Workout.

      • karen says:

        thank you so much!! :)

        • Amy says:

          PS the new video I guess was the 100 Burpee Challenge for anyone who hasn’t done day 1 yet! Or add it to today!

  • I can’t wait for this!!

    Here’s my story for throughout february… it was definitely a challenge, but i am amazed with the results :)

    http://healthyrevelations.wordpress.com/2013/03/01/accomplishment-and-setting-goals/

  • Amy says:

    To all the running haters out there, it’s only twice a week!! Just try it. You can start with walking and just add in intervals of running. I’d also like to share a story of an inspirational person in my life: my mother. She has never been a runner but she recently started the couch to 5k program and her goal is to complete it. Sometimes it takes more than 1 week at any given interval for her to feel ready to progress but she does it. And when she can’t go outside, she runs around the upper level of their house and walks on her treadmill (the treadmill is non-motorized and only works on uphill so she doesn’t run on it!). She’s getting it done! P.S. Couch to 5k is a great beginner running program. It breaks the intervals down really well but the workouts are about 30 minutes or so. You could probably figure out and accommodate it to one mile though as well.

  • Brittany says:

    Cassie,
    What ever happened to the bikini competition you were going to sign up for in time for your birthday? I really liked the first bikini comp you did. Very impressed. I don’t entirely agree with the lifestyle of it. All protein. No fruit. But I thought it was crazy cool how you put yourself out of your exercise comfort zone.
    – Britt

  • Samantha says:

    Hey all! I did the first workout after work today but the new videos wasn’t posted yet, so I skipped it. Hope we can stick together on this. This is my first month. If you happen to miss a day can you replace it with your rest day instead?

    • Becky says:

      That’s what I do! If I can’t do a day during the week I do it on Sunday instead.
      Good luck!

  • Amber says:

    Why cant I print the whole calander??? I can print it but it is cut off and Icant see it all. I even changed the printer setting from portrait to landscape and it doesnt work.

    • Amber says:

      nevermind….I pasted it to paint and printed it….for anyone who might have the same problem.

  • Ariella says:

    where is the new video for today? what should i do if she hasn’t posted a new video yet?

    • Amy says:

      I don’t think she posted a new video this week (I could be wrong). Since it’s an upper body day, I replaced it with Angel Arms. You could probably also replace it with a cardio or a HIIT workout. Any of those would probably be fine. Or last week’s new video.

  • katie says:

    I hate running just like the rest of you and I am not looking forward to running outside in this lovely Canadian weather, or in any weather because I look silky when I run and I feel so self conscious but we all have workout goals otherwise we wouldn’t be on here so I think we should just bite the bullet and do what Casey recommends. She did burpees and hates them, we can do this! Think of how great we will all feel atthe end of the month if we don’t bitch out!!! Yay!

  • Whitnie says:

    Whats the new video for March 1st? Is it the 100 burpee video from last Friday?

  • Stephanie says:

    A bit nervous, i have not ran in quite a while. I have two little ones 3 and 1 so running with these hyperactive toddlers is going to be quite a trip. But here goes, what is the new video?

  • Liz says:

    I haven’t ran a mile in 6 years so I hope by the end of the month i’ll have my 5 min. mile time back!
    I walked quickly today instead of running since I get dizzy easily but I managed to get it in 18 minutes which is 2 minutes faster then it usually takes!

    I was highly disappointed in all the “I hate this calendar because of the running” comments. Especially since its only running on two days. You can always skip it! Treat the calendar like a guideline and change the things that dont work for you. I know I do!
    You do need cardio though so I hope you all are getting it some way (especially you guys who want to lose weight!)

    Anyways I was wondering if any of you guys have any tips for keeping you neck from hurting while working out. I don’t know if its just becasue of the brain surgery’s i’ve had (i’ll ask my doctor next time I see her) or if I’m just not holding my neck right but it always hurts within 5-10 minutes of every workout video I do :/

  • Paola says:

    Hello! I want to start the march calendar but I don’t know which is the new video. Is the 100 burpees or the abs one on the right of the page that says “this week workout video” ?
    Help, I want to start right now!
    Paola

  • Pauline says:

    How much is mile? Ahh, I live in Canada and I’m a teen. I don’t have any running machines whatsoever so I run on the spot in my room… how will I know?

  • Kimberly says:

    This calendar looks awesome! I love the green color and the workouts are great. I just started following Feb. Calendar about 2 weeks ago and have already noticed a difference. I am very excited to get started with the March calendar and I look forward to doing the activities on Sunday. Thank you for this and you have done an amazing job on the calendar!

  • jAcKiE O. says:

    I didn’t get to run today because it is snowing here in STL so it’s really cold and yucky! But I did the elliptical for 15 minutes instead… Waiting patiently for the new vid!! Super excited about the new calendar, I also like to read what to do everyday one it come out =)

  • Tagana87 says:

    Where can I found the new video. Can you post link?

  • Jayde says:

    Perfect timing Cassey! I’m going to start running this Saturday with my mom. It’s a pretty scenic area, so it ought to be fun! And I’m going to be making 2 ingredient ice cream today. Yay for PB! <3

  • Asha says:

    I really love this calendar (especially how we get to choose what to do on Saturdays)! I started following your calendars in October and worked out every day that month, but didn’t stick to it in November, December, or January because I didn’t like the calendars (too much cardio). Last month I was doing good following the calendar and I liked the way it was set up, but I got sick after the first week and stayed sick until there was only a few days left of the month :/ This month I’m planning on following the calendar, so hopefully I don’t get sick again.
    I can’t run a mile, though XD I’ll have to run as much of it as possible and then walk fast the rest of it. Maybe by the end of the month I’ll be able to run the full mile (I can run about 1/2 mile now, up and down hills outside, so I’m not sure how far I can run on the treadmill) :)

    • Crystal says:

      For those who don’t think they can run a mile, I highly suggest some interval work – where you start with a warm-up (5 minutes) then jog for 30 seconds, walk for 60-90 seconds, and so forth. I still don’t fancy myself a runner but this strategy (based on couch potato to 5k program) is turning that around.

    • Claire says:

      I loved the January calendar- I’m a total cardio lover myself. I’m gonna have to see how I do on the mile though.. I’ve haven done that in a long time! :0

  • Kristy says:

    Do I perform all of the exercises on the daily calendar, or do I pick a few from what is listed?

    • Monica says:

      If an hour’s worth of exercise every day is too much for you at the moment, I would just choose a couple of videos a day and slowly build up throughout the month!

  • Aleks says:

    Felt amazing completing #feelfabfeb. After every workout, I’m in pain but at the same time I am smiling and so full of joy knowing that I can do it! Going to get started with #MarchMakeover now! Hopefully by the end of the month I’ll be able to run a complete mile & then some more so that I can finally participate in a 5K walk/run later this year! Thank you for all of the motivation you give (:

  • Michelle says:

    Which one is the backless dress workout? Is it the prom workout video?

    • Monica says:

      Search “backless dress workout blogilates” in YouTube and it will be the first video on the list!

  • fede says:

    anybody knows if i can swim instead of running?
    i’ve been having some issues with a knee lately, and i’m afraid jogging wouldn’t help…

    • Liz says:

      I don’t see why not! As long as you can track your time and distance

    • Anja says:

      Swimming is fine! You’ll train your knees that way, too, so you might be able to shake off your knee problem in a while… Good luck!

  • Beth Dubreuiel says:

    Where do i find all of the workouts that are on the calendar? Sorry Im new to all of this.

    • Monica says:

      Search the video titles in YouTube! They will usually be the first video on the list, but if you can’t find them, add “blogilates” to the end of the search and they’ll pop right up :)

  • Hadassah says:

    I’m new to blogilates and I’m not really sure where to find the video’s for the calendar. Like where/what is the “New Video”?

  • Carmen says:

    I don’t like running either, and it is also kinda windy outside, so I am going to do some other workout. I did not stick to the calendars but I did about 2 workouts from Casey a day, including on Sundays so I can compensate my lack of time, and I managed to lose about 5.3 pounds in a month, so I am pretty optimistic about it. Also I do like eating so I am not doing any diet.
    Today I will start the calendar in March and hope I will survive!!!

  • lotta says:

    hey! where can i find every fridays new video? for example todays new video =)

  • Ashley says:

    *tips

  • Ashley says:

    Can someone please help me? I have a goal of being 115 pounds by May and right now I’m about 127 pounds at 5′ 3” (and a half). I try to eat healthy but I’m surrounded by junk and I just cave when I see it. And I exercise for about an hour a day. I’m getting really discouraged. Does anyone have any tipw or anything for me? Thanks!

    • Julia says:

      Ashley,

      Try righting down your goal on a piece of paper or on your cell phone hang the paper up on the wall or carry your cell wih you wherever you go. Whenever you see that junk food look at or think of your goal and how much you want that should motivate you!
      ~~Much Love,
      Julia<3

    • Liz says:

      About 90% of losing weight is in your diet.

      If your the one who does the grocery shopping I suggest not buying anything that is toxic for you. If its not there you cant eat it :] If you aren’t the one shopping maybe try talking to the person who does and suggest some healthy alternatives to the junk they buy.

      One thing you shouldnt do though, is cut out all the foods you love. This will just cause you to binge.

      One tip I have for eating less (especially when it comes to the foods you love) Is to slow down and enjoy the food. Take one bite at s time and chew the food at least 20-30 times.. Enjoy what you’re eating. This will make you feel fuller quicker. I’ve read studys where they blindfolded people and made them eat slower and the people eat almost half of what they had eaten the day before~

    • Scarlet says:

      If you are surrounded by junk food, just get rid of it! And if that isn’t an option, then try passing up junk food at least once a day, and replacing the junk with a healthier option. Whenever you go to get something to eat, make sure to ask yourself if you’re really hungry, or just bored. I hope it helps!

  • rachel says:

    I’m excited to start this today! Where are all the videos? This website or youtube??

  • angi says:

    yeah the running thing will be challenging here as well. I have started going for a jog a couple times a week, but I usually work out with littles home and its winter!! and a run with them well that just wont be able to happen. we shall figure something out girls!!!

  • Amy says:

    Thanks, Cassey! Love this month! I will be doing the videos in the morning and runs at night (a long with my regular gym workouts). Saturdays I may replace with one of your gym cardio workouts because I tend to be at the gym on Saturdays and not want to workout once I’m home. This is usually my super cardio day so using those workouts is a good supplement.

  • Suzy says:

    You guys it’s just one mile just Monday and Friday, it won’t hurt trying. Running burns a lot of calories too and with spring coming it will make you feel better to be outside, seeing all the beautiful changes. It’s always nice to switch things up, this is for you. YOU CAN AND WILL DO THIS!

  • Jessica says:

    I’m so excited! I’ve got it as the background on my computer. I’ll have to send you a picture of how I look running today. I don’t have instagram or anything like that, though. In fact, I can’t even put the pictures on my phone on the internet. I’ll figure something out, though. I’ve got 3 kids (3, 2, and 6 months) so they’re coming with me! I’m sure I’ll look completely ridiculous but looking completely UNridiculous in my bikini this Summer will be worth it. By the way, I HATE running. I haven’t done it since I had to in high school (almost 10 years ago now…wow). This is going to be an interesting day, I think!

    • Amy says:

      This is really inspirational that you are making it happen. Even with three little kids and not having run in so long! You can do it! And even if you can’t run the whole time, you can walk some of it and then just keep working up to the whole time. And way to go, involving your kids!! Making it a routine young will encourage them to be active as they get older. I know this may just be a necessity but think of all you are showing them!!

      • Jessica says:

        Thank you for the encouragement! We came in at 19 minutes and 4 seconds. We did better than I thought we would because first, my girls kept saying, “Keep running, Mommy!” It was much more fun this time around than it was in high school! I posted a picture of us all ready to go on Facebook and Twitter if you want to see!

        • Jessica says:

          Sorry, realized I forgot the “second” on that post. The second reason it went better than I thought is I can’t out run my kids! Not yet, anyway. haha!

          • Amy says:

            Good for you and I will definitely check out the pic!! That is great your kids were encouraging you too.

  • So excited about the new month!!! Thank you so much love your site and your energy!! Jen

  • Irene says:

    Dear Cassey,
    I would like to thank you for all your videos, your passion and great blog / fb page you run.
    You are the reason I get up every day at 7 a.m. to manage to do the workout for the day and then get ready and go to work.
    Since I have found your videos I get up in the morning with no regrets to leave the bed because I know I’ll do something good for myself, something that is important to me and that your enthusiasm will put me in a good mood.
    I started working out with you 5-6 weeks ago and before I hated working out. I used to ride a bike few times a week, I love to run, but ever since I hated doing exercises and now I love them, because of the way you do them.
    In one of the first videos I started to do with you, you’ve said ‘you’ll be crazy not to do all the videos in a row’, at first I thought no way, not me, but few days later I realized I really want to do them all and make them part of everyday. :)
    Also, thanks to you I’ve found out about Pinterest, great site, I love it too.
    So, Cassey, thank you once again for your time to film all the videos, thank you for every video you’ve made, thank you for your great attitude, passion, happiness, motivation…
    You’ve brought happiness to my life and thanks to you my body is getting shaped again.
    Lots of love,
    Irene

  • Emily says:

    I wish I had time to do all this, but I just don’t .. But it’s looks like a wonderful workout calender ! Your great Cassey :D

    • Monica says:

      Just pick a couple of videos a day! Anything is better than nothing! :D

  • Mrscobra says:

    Up at 3:45am to hit the gym before work! Thanks for the new calendar!

  • vonn says:

    thanks for the new calendar! not sure if youve heard about nike sweatshop (you can watch it here: http://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=M5uYCWVfuPQ&desktop_uri=%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DM5uYCWVfuPQ) wondering what’s your take on this.

    thanks!

  • Elina says:

    I can’t run either…i dont have time for gym and It’s cold outside too.. I could replace it with other workouts.?

  • Isabella says:

    Hi Cassie!
    I never left a comment to your site yet, but I think now is the best time to do it!
    I am a 16 year old girl and I live in Holland, since I discovered your site, videos and calander, my body changed a lot!! I am now fitter then never before! And that thanks to you!
    Your an amazing enthousiastic girl, and I have a lot of respect for you that you work so hard for us!
    So I just wanted to thank you, that you make my day everyday and motivate me to workout and to put a big smile on my face!
    So thank you cassie and keep up the good work!
    Love <3

  • Josie says:

    Yayayay! A new month! Can’t wait!

  • Cassie says:

    I knew there was a reason I randomly splurged on a new pair of running shoes yesterday….

  • Christine says:

    What can I replace the running with?

    • Amy says:

      Do you just not want to run/don’t usually run? Or is there a reason you can’t run? I ask because I always hated running (OK I still don’t like it). I would make excuses not to run but now I do it. Not fast and not for long periods of time but I do it. If you can’t complete a full mile, start with intervals and record your time to get to the mile. Or walk a mile but include inclines. You could also replace this, I’m sure, with a combination of cardio videos.

  • Shipra says:

    love the calender..im gonna check my weight on my birthday this month..and i have been doing this for the past two months..lets hope i get the best results..:)

  • Hayley says:

    Now to just find some healthy recipes with ingredients that are easily accessible and my family likes and I will be prepared for my march make over :-) except that I don’t have anywhere to run, so I will just replace it with a cardio video for know.

    • Monica says:

      Start with Cassey’s Banana Pancakes and Healthy Cookies! They are PHENOMENAL and sooo easy to make! They really inspired me to start finding other easy, healthy recipes :)

  • jaimie says:

    I can’t run either! I’m a stay at home mom and I workout during her naptime….So I can’t leave my house; and I don’t have a treadmill. Plus it’s freezing cold outside and the streets are buried under a snowstorm :(
    I started the calendars at the end of jan. and I had to stop for a week in the middle of feb. because my body couldn’t take it anymore. I was extremely tired and had trouble getting out of bed. Then again it might have to do with the fact that I’m still breastfeeding….Anybody else ever experienced this?

    • Anja says:

      Same here! No snowstorm anymore though, spring seems to be around the corner…

      You burn calories by breastfeeding! So that might actually be the cause. Also you probably have a busy 24 hour shift of work to do with small children… I certainly have (mine are 3 and 1). I usually only do a bit of cardio and more body sculpting because that’s what I need… Otherwise I’d probably just fall asleep anytime and anywhere (yes, that has happened…).

      Keep going!!!

    • I’m still breastfeeding an 11 month old myself, this is my first time seeing the calendars and I don’t have much of an excuse about the running (its warm where I live) aside from the fact that I don’t have the stroller for the job. I’ve tried speed walking and I will step all over it and trip if I try to run. Casey’s videos kill me though! I do extra cardio at home (I’m only on week 2) and some days I just have to crawl into bed all sticky and gross after my workout because I feel like I am dizzy/nauseous and overworked! BUT after about 10 minutes, I’m good to go and so far I’ve seen almost 3 lbs gone in these 2 weeks alone!

    • Amy says:

      I would suggest replacing it with a cardio video. If you were running a 10 minute mile, for example, that would only be 10 minutes of cardio so that’s not too much. I would suggest 10-15 minutes of cardio but if your energy levels are low from breastfeeding, you may just want to cut that part out all together on those days!

      • jaimie says:

        I went pretty crazy on the workouts for 4 weeks (5-6 times/week) and thats when i felt overworked. I had to stop for a while. Now I’m listening to my body, but I lost 5 pounds during that time!

        thank you ladies for all your comments! this site keeps me motivated :)

  • Rebecca says:

    First off, I love your site, I am new to it. So I am really looking forward to this month to day workout calendar that you have!! Its snowing were I currently live, so I don’t have a real good place to run. I can walk on those days instead. Which usually is about a mile. :)

    p/s…..secret sailor moon fan!!! I still have the vhs! *Most of them* saw your sailor workout video and love love love it!!!

  • Talia says:

    When you say “new video” what does that mean?

  • AAAL says:

    I have seen a lot of Blogilates, but I have never tried it out. This month I want to try changing my lifestyle to become more healthy. I am looking forward to this and will definitely work hard and push through this month. Cant wait to get started.

  • Rebekah says:

    Ok I know this is a stupid question but I am having a hard time printing this out. It gets cut off on the sides and then I tried landscape and it cut off the bottom of calendar. Any suggestions?

    • Kate says:

      I always had that problem too! But we use Google chrome at work and when I print from there I never have that issue anymore. It just cuts off a tiny piece of the border, which is way better than the whole last week. Maybe that would work for you too?

    • Jaqui says:

      I took to paint and I kept rotating it until it looked right on the “print preview”. I also used at 11×17 sheet of paper.

    • carol says:

      I am having the same problem(s)!! Can someone help us please & thanks??!!

      • christina says:

        I get that problem too. I have a windows computer so I just save it as a picture first. Then I open up the picture and in the windows photo viewer I click the “print photo” button and then a window pops up asking if I want an 8X10 or 5X7 or whatevr and I just pick 8X10. Thats what I always have to do. Hope it helps.

  • Christina says:

    do we do all the workouts listed for each day, or choose one?

  • Aruna says:

    I was just now wondering when this is coming! I’ve been doing your workouts for months in the order that I put them in, but this time I’m gonna follow your calendar for a change.

  • Clara Gwen says:

    I’m afraid!!

  • Nanette says:

    Omg I HATE running, terrible gym memories </3 but I'll do this for you Cassey, because a month won't kill me. Oh dear. Time to look at the rest of the calendar now.

  • Tiffany says:

    I have no where to run. I don’t have a gym or anything. I don’t really want to run on my track at school because I have no time through out the day, and other people use the track and I’m not allowed to. What can I replace it with? I have a pretty long driveway, could I just walk it for a certain amount of time, or maybe run around my driveway?

  • Kaitlyn says:

    if you don’t run, maybe do the 20/20 or 1000 workout and try to improve your time each week :)

  • Vanessa says:

    ugh! i dont run!!!! and nor i cant!! :( i always run the same route and like, im not good at it and i ugh! but i feel like since im at a plateau maybe running would be good…new…but i mean if i could run at a gym then i would do it… i just… ugh :/ feel like these are excuses so its making me feel sad but at the same time i dont wanna run

    • Sunniva says:

But it males me feel happening – befalsmessene it is healthy. Come on, I kone you van do it! I’m cheering at you! Fond your motivation!! :D mine was to know that I was fitter than the others in my class. It still is. I’m working on it! :)

      I was in the same boat as you not too long ago. Now, I won’t say I “love” running but I love the way it makes me feel. I used to run for 1-2 minutes, and then walk, and when I tried to run again, I never pushed my self… I’d make excuses & say my side hurt or something to just STAY walking for the rest of the track.. NOW, about 6 months later, I run 3 miles everyday. Yesterday I ran 5.25 miles for the first time!! Not fast, just steady. It was an awesome feeling knowing that i could ACTUALLY DO IT! Good luck Vanessa!!!!!

      Just keep trying. You don’t need to be fast and you don’t need to run the whole time and you don’t need to love it. Just do it! It’s only twice a week for a month. I think, too, often the things we really fight like this are the things our body needs. It’s challenging, that’s why you fight it! Good luck!!

  • Yeah I don’t go to the gym or own a treadmill nor will I run outside… or in place in my bedroom for that matter….

    that’ s my whole purpose to doing the pilates videos because I hate running…. what should i do instead of this?

    There’s no way I can run I mile, not even at the gym…. I can’t go to the gym .-. That’s my issue. But, Ill do my best. Pinky Promised!

    • Lizbette says:

      Didn´t liked the running thing either :/

    • Amy says:

      How about starting with a one mile walk and increasing your running/jogging from there? So maybe the first time walk the whole thing. The next time, try a few 30 second intervals of running. Maybe next try 1 minute, when you are ready. Who knows, by the end of the month you could be running the whole thing? Or maybe not but you’ll be running more than you are now. Good luck!

        I can’t believe all of the “I hate running” comments. What happened to positive attitude and try something new? I am not a good runner nor do I like it but I do what I can and the accomplishment I feel afterwards is incredible! You never know, if you run/walk your mile on Mondays and Fridays by the end of March you may find yourself enjoying it! Stay positive girls!

  • YAYY I’M EXCITED. I’VE BEEN WAITING ALL DAY <3 <3 <3

    If we don’t have the DVD, could we supplement doing one of your youtube workouts instead?

    • Adelyn says:

      haha! Never mind. I just answered my own question as I looked closer.
