Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Workout

And away I go!

My current workout is about a 2 or 3 mile run, followed by 6 or 8 rounds of TABATA, 4 or 5 times a week. Which is pretty good! However, I’m finding that although I think I am challenging myself, I don’t push to my full potential. I do squats and planks in my TABATA because I like them and have become at least good enough to do 160 seconds worth. I do NOT do burpees. Burpees are the worst. I hate burpees.

Lately I’ve been seeing everyone and their mother doing this Kayla Itsines program, and I’ve got to say, t’s hard to ignore those results.

This is one of MANY transformations featured on Kayla's blog. Check out that tone!

So I decided, what the hell. I’ve got 12 weeks. And now I am replacing my workout three days a week with the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Workout! With any will power, on my off days I will still be doing my run and TABATA combo, and with even more will power I will start working out twice a day. But let’s be real, I’m not making any promises on that last part.

I was really excited this morning when I got the nerve up to commit to this, so I thought I would take a sneak peek and do one of the first week workouts. Fun fact about Kayla’s guide: it requires a TON of burpees. But, if it’s on the program, I do it. Even if it makes me look like this

Have you done the program? Or even better, do it with me!

Updates to come, wish me luck!

Healthy Fast Food Review

First off, I want to assure you this is NOT an add. I was not paid or influenced in any way to speak positively about this product. Now that is out of the way, let’s get to the goods.

I’m so excited to finally have this fast food! I mean, it has everything: convenience, cheapness, deliciocity, nutrition, and you can find it in any store (aka findability…yeah these are all real words). The best part of this food is that you can eat a giant serving and not feel disgusting. On the contrary, you will have a ton of energy.

If you haven’t had one of these in the past 24 hours, do yourself a favor and go purchase a big bag of bright orange carrots!

“Har har, you got me. I’ve had carrots before. This is boring.” Okay, hypothetical reader, you want excitement? Try this on for size. One carrot will basically make you a vitamin A superhero. How does 157% of your daily value of vitamin A sound? And if you think you can only get potassium from bananas, boy are you mistaken. By the way, if you’re taking biotin for your skin and hair, stop it. Eat carrots instead. They are 100% more delicious than a pill.

If you don’t feel like eating them raw, you can boil them, mash them, stick ’em in a souproast them, make noodles out of them, or drink them in a delicious smoothie.

Livin’ the life…

When I was a child, I loved carrots so much that I once turned slightly orange (everything in moderation, people). Then as I aged and my mom started switching out carrots for other orange things. Doritos. Cheetos. Kraft Singles. Reese’s Pieces. When did the process of going to a store to buy bags of sugar and salt snacks become easier than going to a store to buy carrots?

TL;DR: Don’t waste time reading ingredient labels. Eat only ingredients.
