A workout update is long overdue.
As of writing this I am currently in week 6 of my second round of BBG (Bikini Body Guide). That means I am about to be officially almost halfway through. Luckily this second round hasn’t been as tough as the first one but that isn’t saying much because it’s still pretty hard. I end up sore the next day after every workout. I gotta say that I like being sore though because I feel like it’s proof that the 30-40 minutes went towards building a better me. If I’m not sore I feel like I didn’t challenge myself.
Some of the other things I have incorporated on an on and off basis are kettlebell exercises, yoga and 5 mile walks or HITT (BBG calls for LISS or HITT on your off days). This may sound like a lot but instead of doing the optional 3rd day of BBG I do a kettlebell exercise or yoga instead.
Here is the kettlebell exercise I’ve been using from BodyFit by Amy:
Here is the yoga exercise I’ve been using from Fitness Blender:
I tried this HIIT workout – which is tough so I most definitely did not do it perfectly. I’m not much of a runner even though I try every so often.
Other changes to my diet and fitness have been due to time constraints. My husband and I decided to re-join Blue Apron. We used to get their meals then we had a few weeks where we just weren’t enjoying them as much so we stopped. It worked for a while but our schedules can be kind of hectic which leads to poor eating habits including not buying healthy meals at the grocery store, eating out or not eating enough. To combat this, we re-activated our account and it’s been such a relief to have the ingredients for three dinners a week delivered straight to us. It’s also really nice to cook interesting meals together too!
Some of the other things I wanted to touch on that are fitness related are sewing a fitness wardrobe! I’m far from it but I wanted to share a few patterns that I’m hoping to sew in the future. My list is quite long and I’m currently trying to sew together a casual work wardrobe but that is for another post. Check out these cute patterns! I hope to get to at least one very soon. 🙂
What have you all been up to fitness and health wise? I would love to hear your tips!
As of posting this I just entered week 8 of BBG! 🙂 Yay!
