I made it through 12 weeks of BBG! I started with 4 weeks of pre-training which brings me to a total of 16 weeks. It has been a wonderful journey. I made progress towards reaching my fitness goals and truly created a habit which was the largest goal of all.
I’m feeling a lot stronger and looking a little bit more toned but most importantly I’ve taking large strides in how I approach eating. I aim to eat clean Monday through Friday and give myself a break on the weekend when I’m not on my routine. It’s easier to not be so hard on myself by just giving myself that pass on Saturday and Sunday. Of course I don’t over-indulge!
A part of my new fitness routine as I move out of these 12 weeks is to gain muscle which means I need to lift weights but I also have to eat more. I’m currently using the MyFitnessPal app to count calories and make sure I’m eating enough calories to sustain my workout. In doing so I have added a pre-workout/post work-out protein shake to get those extra calories and heal my muscles.
My workout for the next 7 weeks (I’ve already completed week 1) is Tammy Hembrow’s fitness program which focuses on the glutes. I chose this one because I felt like this was the one area that was missing on BBG and I want an overall toned appearance so this will hit that goal. I will be doing this 3 days a week and the other 2 days will be dedicated to BBG 2.0 arms and abs.
I’m super excited to see some progress!
