hahahahahahaπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸš—πŸš—πŸš— made me chuckle.
I hope you're all having an amazing day!
This evening was touch rugby for me πŸ‰β˜ΊοΈ our final games of the autumn league!😒 I only have 7 weeks left in aus and ahhhhhh I can't believe how fast this whole time has gone 😨
I absolutely love playing sport alongside BBG! I just use it as my HIIT as both touch rugby and netball involves a lot of sprints so it's perfect. Plus it's just so much fun and I love being part of a team ☺️
I hope you all had or are having a fab day of workouts or if it's a rest day, you're having an awesome time chillin 😎😎😎

❌INSTAGRAM IS A HIGHLIGHT REEL❌
A couple of months ago I did a post about my cellulite so I thought why not talk about two other totally normal things that are not always shared & talked about on IG: stretch marks & bloating.😜
βœ–οΈβœ–οΈβœ–οΈ
‼️πŸ’₯ stretch marks πŸ’₯‼️
SO COMMON. (It's estimated that around 80% of Americans have them!)
You can develop them during pregnancy or rapid weight gain but for me, I got mine during puberty. I have them on my sides (the ones shown here), the outside of the top of my thighs and ALL over the inside & the back of my thighs (that's where I have them the most but thought I'd spare you guys a crotch shotπŸ‘€πŸ˜‚). They've now turned to that white/silvery colour so they're not as obvious but they used to be angry red/purple for so long, which made me sooooo insecure. I hated wearing shorts or crop tops or bikinis because of them. I used to think that my stretch marks made me a whole lot less attractive but I know that I was wrong to think that.
I wish that society talked more about stretch marks and how normal they are. I wish they weren't airbrushed out of pictures in magazines because they are NOT an imperfection. I could go on about that for ages but yeah πŸ‘€ I promise you that stretch marks are completely normal & natural and they do not impact or affect your beauty or awesomeness. With or without, you are just as amazing. ❀️
‼️πŸ’₯ bloating πŸ’₯‼️
Scrolling through IG, it can be so easy to think that everyone has these flawless abs that remain defined the WHOLE day and that bloating just isn't a thing because (& fair enough) we want to post the best bits☺️. But that is far from the truth!!
I have days where I don't bloat but then I also have days where my abs are long gone and I have either a beautiful food baby or just regular bloating like this πŸ˜›
perfectly real, natural and normal!!

I hope you're all having the most wonderful of weeks 😘

βœ–οΈ one years difference βœ–οΈ
It might not seem the biggest difference but it feels that I'm slowly but surely building up my hamstrings and getting stronger and more defined legs πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈβ˜ΊοΈ
It's definitely my legs that take the longest to change and sometimes it feels like they aren't progressing but it's good to know that they gradually are ☺️
nice to know that leg day actually makes a difference 😝😝😝
I hope you're all having an amazing day!!

got ma Monday workout in πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»
I plan to join @fitbynati next week (May 1st!!) and start another BBG #12weekchallenge (though for me, starting at Week 13) so I'm taking this week to just do what I feel like. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ (anyone else also fancy joining another 12 weeks of BBG?!😜)
Today was 14 minutes of BBG Wk 7 full body and then had a go at the resistance machines. ☺️ Kept with the full body theme and focused on my legs, arms and back! ready to feel the pain tomorrow πŸ€“πŸ˜‚
I hope you're all having a fantastic day and that you have an amaaaaazing week 😘😘😘

πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
can't have that happening πŸ‘€πŸ™…πŸΌπŸ˜‚
Hope you're all having a lovely Sunday 😘❀️

first workout in over 3 weeks = βœ”οΈβœ”οΈβœ”οΈ
woooooop ☺️☺️☺️ FELT SO GOOD!πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ͺ🏼
Did mostly arms but also fitted in some squats too ☺️ (sorry for the absolutely terrible boomerang filming πŸ‘€πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
βœ–οΈβœ–οΈβœ–οΈ
I still get really self conscious from time to time. For example, two summers ago, I felt and was SO confident and comfortable in my clothes and bikini after having followed BBG for 7 months. It was so incredibly awesome and I genuinely had a summer where I felt really great in myself. However, somewhere along the line (I actually think it's particularly within the last year), the doubt and insecurities began to return and I definitely have moments where I get really self conscious and feel fluffy and just a bit meh in myself/my body. But then I also have moments like today where I feel really happy in myself because I feel SO strong. And I can't wait to keep getting stronger πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼☺️☺️☺️

my genuine facial expression to receiving this beautiful @danielwellington watch in the post πŸ™Š
I've been in love with DW watches since I received one for my 18th birthday (if you scroll through some of my earlier posts, you'll probably see it πŸ‘€πŸ˜) and so to now have the opportunity to collaborate with DW is SO surreal but soooooo awesome because I genuinely adore their watches πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š (so I hope you guys don't mind this postπŸ˜›)
⏰⏰⏰
(they also gave me the discount code HELBBG if you would like to purchase a watch and get 15% off your order!! (from danielwellington.com) I get absolutely no commission from this but yeah this code is valid until the 15th May!!)
I hope you're all having a fantastic Saturday!!❀️
I went on a wine tour today, which was awesome! But now it is time to drag my butt to the gym. Treating myself to arm day 😝😝😝πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼

Hope you're all having a lovely day!! And that you have a wonderful weekend☺️
I had two touch rugby games last night and I am so sore today πŸ˜‚ amazing how just taking a few weeks off with little exercise makes such a difference! So I took today as a rest day and plan to get back to the gym tomorrow!!
Last week, I had a go at stand up paddle boarding and it was so hard πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ balance is something I really struggle with πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ but it was also really funπŸ˜‹
Anywaaaaay! Time to stop procrastinating and actually do some uni work πŸ€“
Have a wonderful Friday 😘

I hope you've all had an awesome couple of weeks!! I plan to catch up on everyone's posts asap πŸ€—
Thank you so so so sooooo much for all of your kind comments, messages and DMs after my last post. Really meant so much❀️
It's now been 2 weeks since the accident and I'm feeling a whole lot better. Still getting a few twinges in my leg but I am deffo ready to get back into a good workout routine.
Emotionally/mentally, I'm slowly but surely feeling better too.☺️ I'm still having flashbacks/nightmares but am seeing the doctor about them tomorrow so yeah! Hopefully will start some counselling and be on the road to being back to 100% asapπŸ€—πŸ€—πŸ€— I also now feel like myself again, which is super mega awesomeeeee.
My friends and I took a camping road trip last week up the west coast of aus and it was SO much fun. Such a good break away from everything ☺️ This pic ^ was from one of the walking trails we did πŸ˜„
But yeah! I hope you all had a great easter and enjoyed all the 🍫🍫🍫. Pretty sure the last two weeks my diet has consisted of sugar, sugar and more sugar πŸ˜›πŸ˜‹
Hope you're all having a super lovely day 😘❀️

βœ–οΈ taking a mini insta break βœ–οΈ
I hope you're all having an amaaaazing day and have had an absolutely fab week (and weekend)!!
❀️❀️❀️
Just posting this to say I'm logging out of this account for a bit to take some time out for myself.😊
Unfortunately on Thursday I was hit by a car while walking across a pedestrian crossing. (I'm thankfully ok!!) Luckily for me, by the time she saw me she had some epic reaction time and had almost stopped by the time the car hit me.
Physically, it's just bruised legs, sore wrists and an achey body haha. However, emotionally/mentally I'm not at the greatest place at the moment, which is why I'm taking some time out to just take care of myself. I keep having flashbacks as well as getting really upset/panicky/scared about it all but I've been told that's completely normal and it's just the body/mind processing it all. However I do know how lucky I am as I realise it could have ended a lot worse than it did. It's also been quite hard not having my family here/being so far away from home but I've gotta say how absolutely amazing my friends (both in aus and back home) have been. Truly could not have better people around me ❀️
I know some may question why I'm telling you guys all this and the details but I guess it's just really cathartic to just talk about it and get it off my chest. Anything that helps, right? πŸ˜†
Also without sounding tooooooo clichedπŸ˜›, a massive massive massive reminder to remember to make the most out of each day as you never know what might happen! (okay yeah I know that was totally cliched but it's so very importantπŸ€—)
So yeah! I hope you all have a great couple of weeks and when it comes to it, an awesome Easter!! 🐰πŸ₯❀️

today was a perfect evening for touch rugby training πŸŒžπŸ‰ nothing beats some fresh air and a good run around after being stuck inside 9-5 πŸ€“πŸƒπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
also absolutely LOVING the weather at the moment ☺️ I'm definitely not ready for it to get cold anytime soon hahaha
I've got one more day left of uni and then it's our mid semester break woooooooooo πŸ‘―πŸ‘―πŸ‘―
I hope you're all having an awesome day and week!! ❀️❀️ bed time for me 😴😴☺️

#transformationtuesday
SO MEGA HAPPY AND CONFIDENT IN BOTH ☺️🌞 (oh and #SCREWTHESCALE πŸ‘€πŸ˜† (and yeee...living in πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί has had great benefits for my tanπŸ˜‚))
βœ–οΈβœ–οΈβœ–οΈ
β€’ left = end of my first round of BBG
β€’ right = end of my 9th full round of BBG
There are two years (& 1 week) between these photos!
I remember finishing my first ever round of BBG with #thekaylamovement at the end of March 2015 and was honestly SO chuffed. (you may be able to tell from my face πŸ˜†) That face is honestly a mix of sheer excitement and genuine shock in how happy I felt in myself and that bikini hahaha. I couldn't believe that I'd actually stuck to BBG and I honestly think I still have like referred happiness when I think back to how happy and proud I was on that day πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„
Now two years on and we have the right photo at the end of the #12weekchallenge ☺️ I am an extra 11 and a half kg (around 25 pounds) but that honestly means nothing to me! The scale has no impact on how I feel or value myself.πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ
All I know (and care about) is that I'm soooo much stronger now and still just as happy and confident as I was in the first picture ☺️ (tbh I'm actually a whole lot more confident now!!)
Can't wait to see what another two years bring 😜
