Waves! A quick update on what I have been doing now. If you have been following me on my Instagram (@iammabeltan), you will realize that I have embarked on Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide Workout. And I am on Week 5 now! (7 more weeks to go!) I am really inspired by Kayla’s dedication and love for fitness. She is such an amazing lady of inspiration and is definitely one of the best fitness trainers around.
Here is some of my updates from Instagram during these 5 weeks;
“I exercise because somehow completely exhausting myself is the most relaxing part of my day.”
After trying out her BBG workout, you will realized that nothing is free in this world and everything is earned. To attain an ideal toned and fit body, you need to put in time and effort to stay consistent in BBG programme. Not just that, the dedication on how much you want to achieve it. Also, putting your body to a series of endurance and strength test as these resistance training isn’t easy-peasy anyway. Talking about it, I am already kind of fearful (in a good way though) for the upcoming weeks of workout, especially Week 9 – 12 with HIIT interval training sprints.
Being inspired by Kayla Itsines, I understand that fitness is not just a one-time thing. How could I ever be saying that I am passionate about fitness when I don’t even commit my time for it? Taking 30 to 45 minutes of your time daily for exercising is essential for weight maintenance, detoxing, strength and improving overall health. Power walk in a park or intensive resistance circuit training, it doesn’t matter as long as you are active.
Don’t lose weight for an event, and stop fitness altogether. Fitness and health is life-long journey and your body is the one that will accompany you through life. I know it is not easy to fork out time in the midst of everyone’s busy schedule. But it is not about having time, but making time for fitness. The pain of getting up at wee hours working out, the pain of changing out to your exercise gears after a long tiring day at work. I know the soreness and aches across the whole body after 1 day of resistance training and continuing that, 3 times a week. I know the challenge to work out 7 days a week is tiring. But, pain is temporary. And I’m not giving up.
“No pain, no gain.”
