Kayla Itsines 12 Week BBG Diary Weeks 8 & 9: Plodding Along

This is one of a series of posts that are part of my Kayla Itsines 12 Week BBG Diary. Click here to read my first post, Kayla Itsines 12 Week BBG Diary Weeks 1 & 2: An Unconventional Start. I am completing the Kayla Itsines 12 Week Bikini Body Guide (known online as BBG 1) and blogging about my experience and other related stuff along the way. I’ve been following the community for ages and have completed exercises from the guide before but never finished an entire 12 weeks. Hoping to get to know fellow BBGers and have a laugh along the way. If you are so inclined, follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (username: sydjournalist) for updates . 

Hello friends! I hope this post finds you all well. In my last post I was all over the place and unsure whether I would continue with BBG. Alas, alack, I have kept going and can happily report that I have completed Weeks 8 and 9.

Regular readers will know that I have NOT been following the plan with any accuracy. I have taken weeks off (not always from exercise completely but from the BBG plan most definitely), completed half workouts, completed two workouts in one day, completed three workouts three days in a row and then left a long break before my next BBG round andddd the list of variations goes on. Regardless I am plodding along and while I have not noticed major physical transformations due to inconsistencies, I have noticed small changes. I am getting stronger (particularly in the abdominal region), my stamina has increased and my arms seem to be developing muscles. Hello biceps!

My left knee has been playing up so I will need to modify quite a few leg and jumping exercises when I get round to completing Weeks 10-12. I don’t see double bench jumps in my near future….heh. On that note, only three weeks left…the end is nigh!

Talk soon friends. I have more BBG Interviews with some super inspiring ladies coming your way. Woo hoo.
