“The key for me is figuring out workouts we can do as a family (it helps to have a spouse who’s willing to do them with you). This way, working out doesn’t feel like it also cuts into family time. With a baby, I try to stretch while he plays on the floor or do some quick pushups or planks, and tummy time is for both of us!”.

Living a healthy life takes the right exercise, nutrition, and mindset. Plus, many people find it hard to stay motivated when faced with a long slog at the gym every day.

That’s why Bill’s plan is based on high-intensity, high-efficiency workouts that are short, effective, and fit.

  • Angie, thank you for this. I really love how real you are! You are such an inspiration to me, thank you so much for this message! Please keep them coming, love and appreciate you girl ����

  • I needed to see this… im pretty much in the same position you were in all those years ago, life is hard and my personal health and wellbeing seems to always be put aside. Im super skinny, no bum, bad diet (not on purpose just through a lack of time and convinience) and in myself i am confident but in public situations i clam up, my confidence has dropped since having my girls and i honestly feel like ive lost me. Does that sound crazy?.. your an inspiration and not because you have loads of follows but because you’re real and seem to genuinely care. Mucho love my fellow disney nerd:) xx

  • I have been struggling with nutrition. I’ve lost 30 pounds and need to loose 30 more but I just can’t seem to get back on track. I needed to see this. Thank you.

  • Angie! I’ve got to commend you! I can not stand most people selling anything that’s part of an “mlm”. You do this is the BEST way possible. Your website is perfection. You’re not pushy AT ALL. You are authentic and real and I absolutely love you! I just came across your YouTube channel a couple weeks ago & you have truly inspired me. Beachbody (80 day obsession specifically) is the ONLY workout program that I’ve ever stuck with. You don’t even have to say what you sell or what you do, you’re so authentic that I would probably buy anything you said was good �� Anyways, keep up the good work! You’re awesome!

  • You have the same body type as me!! It was such a struggle when I was younger and felt so disproportionate ��fitness and muscle really changed the game for me and I feel so much better about my body now

  • Yeah you aren’t a doctor you are a scammer apart of a corrupt MLM. You have no place to tell people not to seek medication for health issues.

  • Her kids went to my school in baku. I was buddy’s at school with the second youngest boy. Adam. The oldest is Ethan. Ethan was in my sisters class.

  • I know this is an older video but ABOUT TO SHARE THIS SUCKER on my instagram because YESSSS. I went through a very similar experience about the whole eating terrible and not taking care of myself and now just killing it and feeling really great about myself. LOVE THIS SO MUCH

  • Just discovered your channel and checking out different videos, with that said really enjoyed this one! Totally speaks to me. Thank you!

  • So needed to hear this, you always have such valuable and enriching content!! Its entertaining and insightful! ������
    P.S. love your necklace!

  • Wow..!!
    This video has really made me think about what I’m doing to myself.
    You are so inspiring!!
    Keep doing what your doing because your going to go so far!!!

  • For real, every time I sit down to watch your longer videos, I think, ah maybe I’ll watch half, and then you keep my attention so well that the video is over almost too quickly. You have such a gift for motivational speaking. Thank you for sharing!!!

  • You are so inspiring! I totally get what you are saying. I have zero friends, only family. I feel like you are my long lost girl friend ������

  • This is just what i needed, I recently decided to turn my life around, i´ve been super unhealthy and eating just the way you said you were in university and you just inspired me so much, imma get my life together an strive for what i want

  • Came across your morning routine and have been binging videos. I really needed this video!! I’m so excited to get back on track tomorrow. It’s Saturday but I’m not waiting until Monday, I am ready!! Thanks for the motivation. I am subscribing for sure.

  • Finally catching up on your October, have one more video to go! I also enjoyed this one, my question is when you first started how was it, what was your mind set and what kept you motivated when you felt that you were doing crap and if it would get better?

  • Can someone talk about fitness motivation with so much soul and genuiness.. Amazinggg.. U made my day Angie.. ����so so many takeaways for life!!

  • I literally have been looking for this kind of video for a long time. I realize I compare myself to all the instagram models I follow instead of them “giving me motivation”.

    I also loved the part where you said comparison is the thief to any joy you will have. That seriously hit home for me.

    I love your videos. They give me so much joy and inspiration!

  • Now if this is me i woundt be here sitting my butt on this chair or bed
    gacha skits
    Post on insta
    Regreting watching “HoneyPop”

  • HOLY HELL ANGIE I NEEDED THIS! Talk about conviction. This makes so much sense to me and it is what I needed to hear. I love you! I’m going to start working out at home. That is my biggest issue! GETTING to the gym…. I am such a home body. It’s so good to know that I am not alone ���������������� so much love for you!

  • I have another question sorry. From other videos you’ve filmed in Fort Lotterdale do you rent houses when you go? I hope my questions are too push or noise. I’m sorry if they are.

  • That was my ex for the longest time! He was always mad when I was working out and trying to change my body after pregnancy, he also ate chips in front of me and was never supportive. Best thing I ever did was to leave him, now I’m with a man who loves me and supports me with my choices on what I want to do to better myself❤️

  • I have a rare neurological disease called CMT it’s a form of muscular dystrophy and it’s progressive but this video speaks to absolutely everyone! I don’t have capabilities like everyone else but this still speaks to me too❤️������

  • I needed to hear every word of this thank you. New to your channel ( your Disney house vid was in my you tube recommended list) loving everything I’ve watched so far x

  • I freaking loved this!!!!I feel so damn motivated! Thank you very much this was incredible!! You are so inspirational! Your revelation has liberated me you should put this on a poster, a mug or something.”When someone wants to give you an opinion about how you should live your life; whether it be health, marriage, raising children, happiness, clothing, (fashion) it doesn’t matter. Are they the example of what you want to live? Are you taking feedback from someone that is not living your ideal life? If so what the *@!$ are you doing?”-Angie B. Words to live by.

  • Just found your channel today and subscribed. Love your channel and podcasts! So creative, motivating, and smart. Ordered some of your favorites today. Thank you for your content. Everyone reading this enjoy your day!

  • OMG I love you Angie! You`re such an inspiring person, and a huge rolemodel for me, and so many other young girls out there! Thank you for sharing your story with us! Lots of love from Norway! Xoxo <3

  • The part about daughters made me so misty eyed. I have a daughter and I shutter at the thought of her thinking she is anything less than amazing and beautiful. Thank you for that eye opener

  • Can I ask you how old are you? I know it is a personal question but what you say is so relatable and I just want to feel like there’s still time for me to change, because I feel old already

  • Loved the video. Loved the other motivational video you did as well. I’m here for the changing camera angles too, that was a fun change.

  • I super agree about how parents talking to kids can shape how they feel about their bodies. My mom used to call me “baby shamu” and then said it was okay because she called herself “mama shamu.” It always bothered me so much, and it’s even more hurtful looking back because I was a healthy, fit kid! I played sports and wasn’t overweight. But I thought I was because of how she talked about my body. Now I have two kids of my own and we don’t comment about ANY bodies… our own, each other’s, strangers… nobody’s body is up for discussion.

  • Found another good workout, put you whole body in a bridge between 2 beds. Then take a stopwatch, and hold that for a minute, I even tried putting a push-up into it which worked great. This strengthens your arm and also flexes your back. I bet if it was enough distance, it would also help the legs. Just don’t hurt yourself by falling or doing it too long.

    (P.S. you can do it for more than a minute, if you want, of course)

  • Angie you are my kind of girl! I swear too and then ask God to forgive me lol! I love how real and down to earth you are. I have listened to your podcast but can’t figure out how to rate it? I have an Android phone and there is no option for me to rate it. I’m also old and computer illiterate so that could be the issue too. ��

  • You are so inspiring!! Definitely has motivated me!! I felt so good I had a few things on my list to do, and I turned this YouTube video on as a podcast, folded my clothes and cleaned out my sock drawer! Checked two things off my list

  • Yeah let’s shame people for taking medication for mental illness. Let’s NOT give medical advice when you’re not a medical professional.

  • I love these topics, on fitness and health. You really have a great message here. I do wish you put in the before pictures though for reference. Do you have a transition video?

  • Can totally relate to ppl not loving when I’m bettering myself!! I think a six pack is a cool goal, personally. I love challenging myself and thrive on structure. But cocktails are always a must! haha

  • Only found your channel this week and already feeling so inspired! I’ve just been on your website and filed out my requirements. Also LOVE that you’re Disney obsessed just like me, became a DVC member this year!

  • Wow. I felt like I just got one of the best real talks about health and fitness I have ever heard. I can relate so much. I have had criticism for being too big, too smal and everything in between. I have to admit the first few videos from you I saw didn’t vibe with me. I’m from Europe and there are huge differences in the cultures we live in. But GURL.. after this video I feel like I have found a Fitness BFF. Relatable, real and exactly what I need to hear!

  • Your videos have become a part of my morning routine! I so needed to hear this, Since moving house I’ve been feeling so off and felt like I had no direction.
    Thank you for your absolutely inspiring words, you’re amazing ��

  • Listened to the podcast of this video and it was great! But I had to check out the actual video too! I love the different camera angles! So fun!!

  • Ok, I actually love how you do your giveaways! Just because I am the person who loves the comment section on YT and sometimes I feel like a stalker…lol…So when you encourage people to comment, I feel like it’s and invitation…haha So thanks.

  • This video was extremely refreshing… I love how candid and genuine you are in this. I loved hearing the personal experiences you share. You are hilarious and inspiring all in one!!! The going swim shopping with Regina George I could totally relate to. I feel super motivated after watching this and am deciding to de clutter my bathroom after months of pushing it off. Thank you for being such a refreshing positive energy in all your videos! Also I did love the multiple camera angles lol

  • Your disgusting if someone has to take medication because of health issues you have no right to say that just work out your right your not a doctor you have no right to say things of that nature

  • I stumbled across this video and if you only knew how much I needed this! It felt like you were speaking directly to me. It’s time to get real with myself and make much needed changes in all aspects of my life. Thank you for being real and transparent in this video my soul needed it! I am ready to take my life back and begin to live rather than just existing. Much love ❤️

  • Angie you are a true inspiration!! I’m so glad I found you. Definitely love all your energy!! Please continue to motivate us I just love it thank you!!

  • What if you turned your old IG page into the human side of Angie. I love all the content you create but it could be humanizing for your bffs to see all your hard work plus all the not so perfect not instagram worthy pics too.

  • By far my favorite video thus far!!! very authentic… I felt it in my Sha….na…na. Listening again on the Podcast while in the shower!!!
