When I was waiting for my flight in Dublin airport last week Friday, I stumbled across Kayla Itsines Instagram page... oh. my. god. How have I never heard of this miracle worker before? Then to my amazement and surprise, she had a challenge which started in 3 days... all I needed to do was get the ebooks and commit to 12 weeks of hardcore grafting and according to her blog, I could have the bikini body that I've always wanted.
So I asked my bestie to join me... she is my overweight friend from Cape Town who I love and adore, but whom I am worried will drop dead of a heart attack at 35. I took to facebook and got 3 more friends involved. So here I am. Instagram kayla_itsines and look at the results for yourself. It's only 12 weeks.
Now let me tell you - the diet is super strict and more cals than any of us are used to (I'm going to cut out the snacks to lower the cal count mind you, but do the clean eating in the correct portion sizes) - today I've had 703 cals.
I also did the first day of the workout, I thought I was going to pass out. I don't have all the equipment. I quit smoking, I am not drinking till after the 12 weeks. Fuck, this will be intense, it's only 12 weeks and I've got nothing to lose. The workout was fucking tough though, let me tell you.
Drop me an email and I'll send you through the ebooks for Kayla Itsines for free - it's a nutrition guide and the 12 week workout plan. #thekaylamovement is only for 12 weeks, the results speak for themselves and until it doesn't work after I've given it my 100%, I shan't doubt it.
74 days to Thailand, which means my last week will be in Thailand, but I am determined to give this 100% for 12 weeks. It's only 12 weeks...
Love & BBG
p.s. No fucking regrets.
