Allison Bowman  BBG Restart 2018 BBG 1.0 πŸ”’ -12kgs/25lbs Keto/Low carb Western Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Week 3 legs! If anyone remembers 2 weeks ago, I could only do 14 minutes, 2x thru each circuit. Today, I did the full 28 minutes, getting thru Circuit One 2.5 + 12 reps and 2.25 + 9 reps, and Circuit Two 2.25 + 5 and 2.25. In case anyone is wondering, that is:

90 jump squats
84 squats
108 lunges
96 knee ups
96 x jumps
45 burpees
96 weighted step ups
60 squat and presses

Yay me!! πŸ™ŒπŸ™Œ For anyone thinking bodyweight workouts can't be challenging, think again. 😊

Week 2 progress. I've.... Gained weight, stayed the same with my measurements. Bugger. Have been pretty good with my diet, so not sure what's happened there, but nothing to do but keep going! I've tightened up on my food this week, the only thing I've added that I haven't had in literally months is sweet potato. And a pie earlier in the week. And white fudge Oreos... Ah. There it is. 🀣 so important to track your food, even if it's only once a week, or not using it to track macros but to be aware of what you're eating. It doesn't have to be obsessive, but it can give clues on why your body is responding the way it is. It might even be a "healthy" food that sets you off (carrots for me!). Weight: 63.4kg
Bust: 37"
Waist: 29.5"
Belly button: 34"
Hips: 38"

Week 2, arms and abs. God, I hate arms. Actually, they're alright when I'm in shape, but I am seriously weak right now and it's painful. It's especially painful when even the modifiers are difficult. πŸ˜• but every day we're getting stronger, and soon they'll be a piece of cake. πŸ’ͺ

So. Let's talk a little about perception. I don't perceive myself as "skinny". I haven't for a long time, in fact. And I wasn't. I hate posting pictures like this, because in my head I feel like I've made much more progress than what's starting back at me in the photo.

I came down to Australia as a size 14, and I figured that was just always what size I was going to be. Then, I found BBG, and rediscovered how great being fit is, and I've lost 25lbs (12kg). And I've dropped 2 sizes, and now fit in a size 10 I'm pants and between 8-10 in tops. And I'm still. Fucking. Soft. I've got my goal... But I'm not happy. It's actually really discouraging. I know I'm leaps and bound from where I've been the last 8 years, and I'm fitting in clothes and sizes I never thought I would again... But I'm still flabby. And it is so frustrating. I know I need to just keep going, and I pray that eventually with a good diet and consistent exercise that one day, I might be "tight" and actually look the fit part. I've washed my 20s thinking it would never happen, and I just fucking pray that one day, with consistency, it will happen for me.

Week 2 legs. My least favourite workout by far, with the exception of week 5 arms πŸ˜‚. Got another Cotton On activewear set... Good thing Mick doesn't follow this channel 😁😁😁

What a sour face! πŸ˜‚ trying to get my progress photos done by myself, and still working on timer timing 😜

Weight: 62.6kg/137.7lbs
Bust: 37"
Waist: 29.5"
Belly button: 34"
Hips: 38"

Almost a full kg down which equals.... Water weight! While I do have a goal weight in mind, my biggest focus is body composition, could I please get leaned out before I have kids?? #BBGrestart2018 #bbg #bbground1 #bbgfam #bbggirl #bbgjourney #bbgweightloss #bbgbabes #bbgstrong #bbgaustralia #bbgover30 #bodybykayla #sweatwithkayla #deathbykayla #kaylaitsines #bikinibodyguide #thekaylamovement #kaylasarmy #sweatingforme #weightlossjourney #strongnotskinny #consistencyiskey #girlswhoworkout #instafit #activelife #fitnessmotivation

I'm here! I'm alive (barely). I'm still on track!

I found a Beachbody dance program I'd bought ages ago, Cize, and did that for LISS today. I laughed hard at myself, I got a good sweat on, I had fun, and I stepped on my cat. Oops.

Then was so motivated that I did Week 1 Arms and Abs. I'm a bit embarrassed with where my strength is at... It's bad. I'm doing push ups on my knees, and I'm reaching failure in the first 7 minutes. 🀀 that's a far cry from where I was at in June, but what can you do but push on and get better and better. Once in failing, and my form starts getting wonky, I stop. No point in pushing on and potentially injuring yourself, beginners! Learn the difference between giving up and protecting your form - 10 good reps will outperform 100 crappy reps any day!

Week 1, day 1! Here's a secret to beginner beginners... If I've been off exercise for a while, I never do this circuit for 28 minutes. I do 14, and aim to hit the circuits each twice in 7 minutes. I'm sore enough as is, and don't feel like waddling all week is going to help me get into a rhythm. So, do what feels okay. This never puts off my results, or impacts the full body workout at the end of the week, by then I'm usually ready to hit it the full time, and I'm still on track for full sessions on week 2. I also keep track of how many times I get through the circuits in 7 minutes so I can track fitness progress. πŸ’ͺ

I use 4kg dumbbells for my weights step ups, and a 7kg plate for the medicine ball squat and press. 😁

Hey girls.

Thank you so for your unending support and beautiful words... It has truly meant the world to me and I appreciate each and every one of you for reaching out to a fitness stranger on IG... Social media can be a bitch but it can also be a truly amazing place to meet like minded people!

So the update is... He took the job! The day after this post, he pulled over on the way home, rang the guy back and asked if he could give it a go... And they said yes. PHEW!!! He's since then hummed and hawed, spent a day on the couch staring out the window like his life was about to end (dramatic much?), but we put in our notice to our current workplace yesterday. 2 more weeks of this place and I'm freeeeeeee. I absolutely cannot believe we were lucky enough to be able to call back and say hey, I made a mistake I'd like to re accept your offer and actually be taken seriously. Our manager at our current workplace is super supportive, everyone else... Not so much, but it solidifies why we talked about leaving in the first place.

Fitness has been... Well, nonexistent. πŸ˜‚ but tonight we are starting Tapout. Mick used to kickbox and lives outstanding to punch around and shadow box (I'm constantly being put into arm locks πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) so if this gets him into a routine with me, I'm willing to give it a go.... Even if it's 45 minutes 6x a week (WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT?!) Again, thank you all for checking in and reaching out.... The past week has been yet another rollercoaster emotional ride, but it's ending on a much more positive note than last week.

Here's to new adventures!!

**SOB STORY PITY PARTY POST AHEAD**

Not really sure where to start, but feeling the need to vent.

I hate my job. Not much else to say except it is 85% of my life because we live at work and I hate every second of every day and it's made me a miserable, mean bitch. So there's the start.

The time before our Christmas break at work was stressful. Mick was contacted by a mate about a job opportunity in Sydney working on the tunnels, which had great pay, a decent roster, and more importantly gets us out of this company and a new place to explore! I'm not a city person, but at this point, I'm take anything!

Mick is probably the most indecisive person I know. His mind changes about every 2 hours (not kidding) on any subject that might stress him out and so when we talk about a life plan, I get so frustrated because we come to a decision and then the next day he doesn't want to do that any more.

Anyway. Long story short, he's been humming and hawing over this job on whether he should take it or not over 2 week holiday (which had made for a shit holiday and had given me a whirlwind of emotions and highs and lows) and decided yep, he's taking it. Awesome. Major endorphin high, there is a LIGHT at the end of the tunnel, I'm over the moon. Happy, ecstatic, we pack up camp early to hear back for a medical, and I am so excited to stay a new journey. Wake up the next day... He's not taking it. πŸ’” the guy calls for his phone interview, he tells him sorry to waste your time, and.... I'm gutted. You guys, I cried so hard I couldn't breathe and nearly passed out, and then the tears just came for TWO HOURS. I'm absolutely devastated and I'm having a hard time not holding a grudge against him. He knows I hate this job, he knows I'm doing it still because HE'S ASKED ME TO and I hate having to do this in my phone because I can't type fluidly and it gets fucked up, but basically I hate the new year, I hate my life, and I'm majorly depressed.

Going to try and just smother myself in fitness to try and escape my sad reality, but when I go AWOL I'm just trying to cope and some days are easier than others.

Love you all - just bear with me!! 😭

Hey all.

Been a bit MIA (story of my life since June it feels like), but as the year winds down, I just wanted to take a moment to reflect on last year's resolution and celebrate myself for a second.

I'm down 12kg (that's 26lbs!!) and I am more confident in myself than I have been probably since I was about 21. I feel great, clothes generally fit way better, and I'm finding I'm enjoying activities more because I'm focusing on what I'm doing 100% instead of worrying about what people think I look like. I'm definitely not where I could/should be, but I'm a hell of lot closer to my goal than I was a year ago.
I've been slack with my fitness regime, and that's my resolution for this year - a more consistent fitness routine, even if it's jumping in between programs and just doing what I feel like doing that day. I've got 5 more kgs to kick (which should have already been kicked!) and I'm looking forward to enjoying my body even more than I do now.

I'm relaxing in Coral Bay, soaking up the sun, spending time with my amazing friends, chowing down on some mean food, and appreciating the beauty of WA's remote coastline. I'm fully destressed and thoroughly relaxed. 😎

Happy holidays to each and every one of you and I will see you in the New Year! 😘

#bbgweek1armsandabs got me feeling like I need to throw up! Stomach is definitely uneasy, and it's either because I took my pre workout too soon beforehand or I pushed myself extra hard. Probably a bit of both, but more the push - my strength has gone waaaay downhill, I only did 14 minutes again today... But that's 14 minutes more than the last 2 months, so I'm proud I did something when I wanted to do nothing. Also got another LISS in before the resistance - 60 minutes today.

Having major body perception issues lately. I'm in a size 10 Aus, down from a 14 this time last year, but I look in the mirror and see that 74kg girl. It's been really bad this week. Hoping it's just a side effect of being emotional on my period, and next week I'm feeling better. 🀞

My day today. Almost done, then I can get in my LISS and scratch two off the list. Hoping to reach the ocean on Sunday...

Got my act together and knocked out #bbgweek1legs. When I take a break from working out and jump back into BBG, I only do 14 minutes, and do each circuit twice through. Or I aim to. I usually get through twice with time to spare, but tonight I failed on the last exercise second time thru circuit 2.

I do this because 1.) I feel like I'm too old to be sore for a week, and 2.) because I'm climbing in and out of my truck in life traffic, so me being able to get in quickly could be the difference between a major accident and me and someone else getting home safely.

2 LISS and 1 resistance done for the week! Let's shred!
