it's been a while since i've had any updates on how my Kayla Itsines (i totally don't know how to pronounce her last name still) program is working out! it wasn't until this last month that i really started putting in more time and doing the workouts consistently. i decided to start with the pre-week routines to help my transition into the program be less intimidating and i'm so glad i did! from these past 5 weeks of doing the pre workouts i've seen an incredible difference. my tummy is more flat, my thighs have thinned out, my booty is getting its lift back and overall i just am more fit and toned. my body is getting stronger and i feel so much more confident.
now that i'm a mama, i find that i rarely have energy to do much of what i love. after a long day, working out doesn't really seem like my idea of "getting a break"and this is what has caused inconsistencies in the past. so i found that sticking to a routine (working out the same time everyday) and building a support group is what has made the biggest difference this time round! it honestly has helped me to find that motivation and discipline that i've needed to get through my mental and physical roadblocks. so that's why i've decided to try and be more vocal about my journey.
my best friend shelby posted on instagram that she is going to start the BBG (kayla's bikini body guide) program this monday, may 11th and i'm going to join her! this will be my first time moving forward without the pre-week workouts so i'm a little intimidated but it's definitely time to take it to the next level.
