Kayla Itsines Workout Week 4

I wrote about week 1 of Kayla Itsines BBG workout here.

Weeks 1-2:

Each workout I completed I was sore the next day…

Week 2-3:

I felt like I was getting bigger (I talk about this more in depth, here) but after doing some research I found that can be totally normal with certain body types. But that soon went away.

Weeks 3-4:

I felt so energized and motivated because I could start to see my hard work pay off. Firstly, I wasn’t dying after each circuit and secondly, I could see my body changing.

Excuse the poor iPhone quality - Starting to see muscle tone :)

Excuse the poor iPhone quality – Starting to see muscle tone :)

So far, doing Kayla Itsines BBG workouts I have learned so much about myself –  self motivation and how important good nutrition is.

PRE Kayla – I did megaformer pilates twice a week and the other days just ran. I ate pretty clean, however, I would help myself to pizza or fries whenever the situation presented itself.

NOW Kayla – I feel so self motivated and only want what is best for my bod. Like seriously, I don’t particularly think it makes sense to work your ass off just to go eat like crap.

So when the fries and pizza present their ugly selves I could not be more turned off. Now that I work my ass off, junk food does not appeal to me anymore. It’s not that I am not allowing myself to not eat junk food it’s that I seriously do not crave or even want to eat the junk (excuse the rambling) and Kayla’s nutrition guide is super helpful.

I think what I am trying to say is that weeks 3-4 I gained a new appreciation for my body and love the feeling of pushing the limits with fitness.

During the first 4 weeks even though I haven’t noticed a huge difference in my physical shape my stamina/core are so much stronger and I can start to see muscle tone.

My next BBG post will be week 8.

Now on to week 5….
