Back in February i wrote a post about embarking on a new fitness adventure, don't worry i'm not about to tell you that i gave up and made no progress! I am however going to tell you about a new fitness regime i am undertaking.
The workouts i was doing back in February, i carried on doing until 3 weeks ago when i heard about Kayla Itsines. Kayla is an inspiration woman with an amazing figure! I follow her on Twitter and she is always posting inspirational and motivational posts, through following her Twitter has suggested other fitness and motivational accounts to follow. My Twitter feed is now my biggest motivator!
The 'Bikini Body Guide' is a step by step workout program to help you achieve the body you desire, it's a 12 week program with set circuits workouts for each week. It's informative as well though, it's more than just a training plan. It explains how to do each exercise and suggests how much/what to do each week.
I've been doing it for 3 weeks now, going in the morning before work and i have never felt better. Every day is easier to get through, with having more energy and being awake before i get to work is so much better - i start the day with a clear head and loads of energy, it's hard to believe i never went in the mornings before!
Believe it or not, after only 3 weeks, i have seen results - other than just feeling better within myself and feeling more motivated than ever, i think i look better because of it. I have more confidence and feel better in the clothes i wear. I've never been confident within myself but finally i'm beginning to get there. I don't judge how well i'm doing by how much i weigh, i don't care how much i weigh. I haven't got i clue how much i weigh, and i don't wish to know! I feel better and to me that's all i need to continue to motivate myself.
I can't post anything about the guide as you have to pay for it, i'd definitely recommend giving it a go though! If what i have to say about it isn't enough then just check out her Twitter or website - that should give you all you need to give it a go. The transformations can appear a bit extreme for 12 weeks or less but it depends how far you take it, the guide is just that, it's a guide. I haven't gone to the extreme - i don't eat any differently and if i miss a training session i don't feel guilty.
Personally, i think the BBG is definitely worth the money, if nothing else, i've really enjoyed the sessions themselves! I have been inspired to learn more about fitness and health, it's become a new hobby. (who'd have thought!) I'll keep posting updates as i go through the 12 weeks and let you know how i'm getting on - follow me on Twitter to keep up to date with what i'm up to.
If you decided to try it or are already doing it, let me know, i'd love to hear how you're getting on and whether you're enjoying it or not.
