Kayla Itsines // BBG Week 8, Day 5

This week is hard.

I’m sick, AGAIN!

I tried to do my abs and cardio resistance training yesterday, and I really struggled. My health isn’t quite up to scratch with this cold, but I feel so guilty if I miss a resistance training. Instead, I pushed through yesterday, did the full 28 minutes even though I wanted to give up so many times.

Part of me is proud; I kept pushing even though I really just want to lie on the couch and go to bed.

But part of me is also really unmotivated. I’m not sure what’s going on. It’s come out of the blue all of a sudden – maybe it’s PMS, maybe it’s more, I’m not too sure at the moment.

I’m not going to lie; staying motivated for the full 12 weeks is hard. Working out x6 days a week is hard. Washing my hair every single night after training, and having to style it the next morning is hard (yes I know, first world problems!). Being good with eating every day is hard.

I’m hoping I find my motivation again soon, because I’d really like to feel like myself again.

I’ve been pushing myself pretty hard even though I’m sick, and I’m starting to think I could use a week off. Just so my body has an opportunity to actually rest and recover. That feels like a cop out though ..

  1. Awww babe, it’s ok to take a rest week if you need it. We all get this demotivation and PMS moods too! There were times where I just skip a day or two, and make up for it later on. Maybe if you don’t feel like working out, do your LISS and go for a nice long walk or stretch out to some yoga videos. No pressure though, some days the couch just wins.


    • Thanks girl. I feel like I’m in a huge rut that is hard to get out of right now!

      I’m thinking I’m not take next week easy; no resistance, and just LISS each day with my dog. Then I’ll redo week 8, and hopefully smash it out from there.

      I feel so accountable to my progress photos. Between my 3 weeks of craziness, and now my sickness, I know there’s not going to be any progress.

      I’m not normally such a sook haha! Thank you for taking the time to reply – I really appreciate it x

    • Thank you Tamara, I really appreciate your response!

      I’m thinking I’ll take next week easy and just do LISS, to give my body some time to recover from this sickness. Then I’ll repeat Week 8 and hopefully by then I’ll have found my motivation to finish these last 5 weeks strong! :) x
