After giving up on redoing BBG 1.0, I fell off track. That’s ok, it happens. If you are in a rut right now, know that it happens to almost everyone and you’ll be back on track before you know it! I took four months off before getting back into BBG. I remained active by enrolling in some fitness classes at my university and still going for the occasional 5km run, but when I heard that there was a BBG “Movement” (a bunch of women around the world starting the guides at the same time), I knew that I wanted to jump back into it, and I did!
In January of 2016 I was more motivated than ever, I restarted BBG (skipping the pre-training this round), gave up alcohol, and became super active on my Instagram (@tanlines.and.training). It wasn’t long before a fellow BBG sister (and now one of my best friends) messaged me to let me know that she was hosting monthly BBG meet ups in our city! WHAT, I had to go! It was kind of scary deciding to go to a meet up alone, but it’s funny how the world works – I ended up knowing somebody that was going! Going to these meet ups have had such a positive influence on me. I think they are one of the main reasons that I have remained motivated for so long. They say “your vibe attracts your tribe” and I am so glad that my vibe matched up with some girls at these meet ups. Surrounding myself with people that have similar lifestyles and goals as myself has been a huge step in moving forward with my fitness journey.Here’s a little snap of my week 0 – week 12 Round 2 of BBG 1.0 (January 1, 2016 – April 1, 2016)
Now, six months later I have finished the BBG 1.0 guide again and jumped right into the second guide, BBG 2.0. This guide has higher intensity workouts with a little more added weights and I LOVE it! The extra challenge is so motivating and definitely keeps me excited to work out! Ok, I think you are all caught up now. I can’t wait to see where the rest of this journey takes me, and I am so excited to share it with you! Here’s just a picture of me after some low intensity cardio (bike & elliptical) at my work during Week 20 of BBG 2.0!
