I’ve decided to work on my Fitness section to not only motivate myself but motivate my readers too! If you’ve read my piece, “The Monster in the Mirror” it’s about my issue with body image. It’s something I have always struggled with for as long as I can remember. Some days, one look in the mirror can ruin my entire day. Healthy living and staying active is so important to me but I’ve realized I need consistency in my workouts AND nutrition plan. Cheat meals need to stop becoming cheat days. I’m all for drunken pizza nights, but letting it happen every time I drink makes me feel like absolute crap come Monday morning.
I’m sure most of you have heard of the Instagram fitness sensation Kayla Itsines. She has recently come out with a workout e-book called the Bikini Body Guide which is a combination of resistance workouts, low intensity, as well as high intensity interval workouts. The transformation pictures are incredible. I just started it yesterday but I can already tell that I’ll enjoy it. It incorporates strength training as well as cardio which I love! They may only be 30 minute circuits, but don’t be fooled, these workouts are tough. If you’re new to working out, I don’t recommend jumping right into it. Start out with a couple weeks of light cardio and then give it a go!
Follow me as I start my Kayla Itsine’s journey. Keep in mind, I’m a regular college girl just like most of you! I won’t attempt to give up alcohol or the occasional drunk pizza night, my groceries are bought on a budget, and I’m not a super fitness expert! The macro/micro nutrient idea is all new to me but I’m going to try it out. I’ll try to post progress pictures every 2 weeks (as the guide recommends). If you have any questions for me, don’t be afraid to comment below. However, if it’s negative, don’t expect me to post it. Tryna keep the positive vibez here ppl~~*
