{ Week 4 of my Fitness Journey }

Hi Lovelies!

It's my favorite time of year again and today I got my first little taste of Fall weather that I've been pining for so much. Mid 70's might not seem like Autumn temps to some people, but with the week we had here in Jersey last week, it's downright chilly!

So if you don't follow me on Instagram (where I tend to be most active), you might not know that I kicked off a major Fitness regimen a few weeks ago. See here....

As you may or may not know, I'm a Certified Health Coach, so I'm really into Nutrition, Fitness, Healthy Living, etc. But I've really fallen off the fitness wagon in the last year or so. My weight has fluctuated quite a bit since I had my son and with some minor health issues that I'm still trying to get under control - think lots of food intolerance's, it was just time for me to take the leap into a major routine.... No excuses. I started out really hitting my home gym hard and was seeing great results! I've been a TIU plan member for a few years now and love their workouts, but I really wanted something more regimented that would build muscle the right way, and quite frankly..... kick my ass. I kept seeing a lot of other TIU girls posting Kayla Itsines BBG program and after about a week or looking at results every single day on Insta, I pulled the trigger!

I absolutely love it so far! I think it's exactly the structure I needed and it's good for me because I could feel myself getting into the mentality that I needed to burn 800-900 cals a workout for it to be good enough. That.... My friends, is how an obsession brews. And I love being obsessed with Fitness, but not in an unhealthy way. Especially with my perfectionist issues. So now I'm on week 2 and I'm loving the results! I still struggle with only doing 45m on the treadmill as my workout, but I'm trusting the process. Besides, there are some nights I'm SO sore and I know I'll be wishing for these easy nights when I get deeper into the program.

After already losing a size and being down almost 10lbs (that includes building muscle) in 3 weeks, I'm pretty happy with where I'm at so far and looking forward to seeing my body change over the next several weeks. If you're interested, I'll keep doing weekly updates here! And make sure to check out my Instragram feed for my daily updates =)

Have any of you tried the BBG program? What do you think so far???


PS - I purchased the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide with my own funds. It was not provided to me for review. This is my own experience and I'm sharing to inspire & motivate others ; )
