Bikini Body Guide Week One

Hello, Sunshine! As you know, I’m working on transforming my body with Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide. I’ve completed week one of the 12 week guide and I hope my biceps begin showing soon and a cute little bubble butt reappears.  And now my review of Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide Week One.

Bikini Body Guide Week One

I love that you don’t need to go to the gym to complete the guide and these exercises kicked my butt. I was really sore on Wednesday after Monday’s workout and that totally made me happy. I love the feeling of a sore body after a good workout. I feel like I’ve completed something awesome. Although, after I’ve had the stomach flu in the past, my abs felt like I should have an eight pack, but sadly I don’t.

Adjustment Made

So Lulu is home with me during the day and I couldn’t complete my circuits in the allotted amount of time. The Bikini Body Guide is based on two circuits of four exercises to be completed in seven minutes two times. Whew, that was a mouthful! Instead of not completing a circuit or shortchanging myself on any results I may be missing out on, I adjusted the time rules.  Instead, I focused on completing each circuit three times. This way I know I’ve given myself a good workout and not an escape route.

Weekly Confession

I look and feel like a floppy string bean doing burpees. I don’t know what it is about that last jump that makes me feel like I’m flailing in the air like a wild thing, but I’m glad I’ve completed my burpees at home.

L.I.S.S.  Training

For my weekly L.I.S.S. (low intensity steady state) training I’ve been powering walking with the dog, pushing Lulu in the stroller, while Gracie and CC ride their bikes throughout the neighborhood for 45-minutes.

Staying Accountable

I’m enjoying having to share my weekly progress with you. It’s keeping me accountable so far and I think it may push me to work a little harder. It’s really easy to slack off when no one is around and a one-year-old finds bouncing on your belly during sit-ups hilarious.

    Way to go on keeping up with the body guide workout and making the needed adjustments that suit your time and schedule. You are doing a great job sweetie 🙂 I’m still slowly working on my daily yoga routine along with some running sessions whenever I can fit them in 🙂 Hope you had a wonderful weekend and week ahead!

      I love yoga and I’m still attending my yoga classes. It’s such a great stress relief! I’m a terrible runner, so I totally admire that you are one. Cheers to a beautiful week, Kelly! xo

  • Glad to hear that you were able to adjust the schedule to make it work for you. That can be so frustrating when you are trying to make changes.

    Hi Chastity,
    Love your review. I’ve been reading some mixed reviews on Kayla’s bikini body guide tho. This blog has some interesting points http://www.bikinibodyguidereview.com and I’m tempted to go for the alternative Amanda mentioned in her review.

    Do you honestly think Kayla’s program is worth it? Thanks in advance 😀

    Hi Chasty,

    I was following your blog since few days and I really like the way you wrote a honest review which is quite interesting to read, I myself is Jennifer Kayle I was using Kayla Itsines guide and it helped me get in perfect figure. It is indeed a great and worth reading but I don’t get why it hasn’t worked for you.. You can check out my review on http://reviewspolice.com/bikini-body-workout-review/ It is edit my editor but I was one of those girls that felt not proud having fat on the body, so I followed her guide and it made me get a good figure plus it worked for me.

      I’m happy that BBG has been a success for you, Jennifer. I think it’s a great HIIT workout and still do it on days I can’t make it to the gym to lift weights. Wishing you health and happiness.

        Jasmine
