I finished my first round of BBG 1.0 5 weeks ago, and had intended to restart the same guide straight away. I ended up falling sick (again!!) 2 days before I was due to restart, so I took a week’s break to give my body a chance to recover.
On a side note – if you’ve been following my BBG journey, you might’ve noticed I’ve been sick a fair bit in the last 16 weeks or so. I’ve started taking a immune booster multivitamin, which seems to be really helping – there was a lurgy on the plane when we flew home from Japan and Mr A has been struck down, but miraculously, I have not!
Anyhow, once I recovered from my cold, I restarted BBG 1.0 and got through a week and a half before realising my head wasn’t in the game – I wasn’t committed to working out, I’d already started to skip a few workouts, and when I was completing them, I wasn’t giving them my all. I’m not sure why, but I just wasn’t motivated, and I started to dread the workouts.
I decided to stop doing the workouts until we got home from Japan, to give myself a break. I was still doing my regular outdoor bootcamps twice a week, just no BBG workouts. I can’t really explain why I was so unmotivated during that week a half, but the break and our holiday has done me the world of good.
I restarted on Monday and am feeling very motivated! :) I did legs resistance on Monday, and abs and arms resistance yesterday. I’ll be tracking my progress just like I did with my first round with 4 weekly progress photos and taking measurements. Getting back into routine already feels awesome, and I’m really looking forward to challenging myself this round!
