Honestly, I had never thought that I would be doing the bikini body guide. I told myself that the fact that the guide is filled with pink and cute little drawings made it impossible for me to take it seriously, and thus I wouldn’t do it. (yes I know, ironically in this picture I am wearing pink, but trust me that happens rarely) Looking back at that now I get that this wasn’t the real reason why I didn’t start at all. Much more likely I just found the thought of a 12 week commitment intimidating and wasn’t ready to commit to such a thing. The thought alone of sweating like crazy three times a week and feeling like you might faint wasn’t very appealing.(it still isn’t!)
Now more than half a year after my first introduction with Kayla Itsines and her bikini body guide I am finally ready to go for it. Since I’m not used to doing cardio at all, also not a big fan of cardio, the workouts feel a bit like a 4 times 7 minute torture session in hell. I do have to say, hell is more satisfying than expected. At the moment I’ve already completed the first week and I’m proud to say that I haven’t died from exhaustion yet.
I actually wrote this a week ago but hadn’t posted it yet, starting week three tomorrow!
