Day 15, Week 3 – a little recap for anyone following along, or for anyone who is undertaking BBG right now too.
I’m proud to say I completed all resistance and LISS training last week. I continually tweak the days that I do resistance and LISS training to suit my weekly commitments, and I’ve found that a little bit of planning goes a long way.
Rather than having Sunday as my day off last week, I had Friday off as I’d had a really crummy day at work, and the last thing I wanted to do when I got home was train. In hindsight, I really should’ve persevered, because I’m sure I would’ve felt better for having trained and gotten rid of the negative energy I was carrying at work. Not training on Friday meant I did LISS training on Sunday, so I went for a 5 and a half km run early in the morning, which was an awesome start to the day.
I’m not going to take you through what each workout entailed (although the full body workout was so hard last week). What I want to focus on is how these small changes are already adding up for me.
Before BBG, I never would’ve had the motivation or desire to go for a run on a Sunday morning. Between work and my fitness training on Saturdays, Sunday is my only day for a sleep in, so getting up early is not ideal for me. I was motivated to go for a run on Sunday though, because I want to give this 12 weeks my all, and for me this means not skipping any sessions at all.
I discovered commandos in last week’s training session, which are evil, evil, EVIL. As evil and terrible as they are, I love that I can really feel my abs the next day. Hopefully for my 4 week progress photos I’ll have a little more definition, though I have no expectation.
This week I am working on drinking more water. I do alright whilst I’m at work, but I drop the ball on the weekends because I forget to drink water in between all our activities.
I hope everyone who is on the BBG journey is going well so far – best of luck for this next upcoming week!
