How cool are my new Fitbit coloured bands? I can’t decide which ones I wanna wear!
I’ve been going a little off Fitbit lately because a) my old band was breaking apart, especially at the part where you take your tracker in and out of the band to recharge it (and this seems to be a problem Fitbit needs to fix because everyone I know who has one has the same issue – Fitbit, take note!!!) and b) my tracker seems to be acting up and it hasn’t even been one year so I might need to take this up with the company.
But it was a really good thing to have when I was trying to get out of a lazy rut and when my workmate asked me if I wanted these new bands – he had bought a smaller size by mistake but they fit me perfectly! – I immediately said, “yes!”
So far I’m really loving the turquoise band. But I also have my eye on the Tory Burch bracelet that goes over the Fitbit Flex but I might wait to see if I can resolve these issues with my tracker lights before I think about getting any additional accessories.
Now on to this week’s workouts!
Week 11 of the Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide is over and done with – and just one more week to go!!! Feeling very excited about this!!!
Weeks 9 and 11 are always a killer (they are the same workouts). My legs, arms and abs were super sore after the workouts which is totally excellent! I’m always glad when I’m sore because it means things are changing – and for the better!
I usually try to space my workouts a day apart from each other with cardio in between but because we had those super storms at the beginning of the week and I couldn’t get out to do my runs, I chose instead to schedule my BBG workouts indoors on those days. One thing I’ve learned from my half-marathon training and BBG workouts this year – it’s always good to have flexible workouts where you can switch the days around to suit your schedule, the weather, etc. So, for example, you don’t have to always start a marathon training week with a short run before working up to a long run on the weekends. You can choose to do your long run on a Monday and then your shorter runs and interval trainings for the rest of the week if you know you’re not going to have enough time on the weekend or if you know you do better if you get the hard stuff over with first thing at the beginning of the week.
Similarly, if I know I’m going out on an evening and I don’t have time to do a long run, I do one of my Kayla Itsines BBG workouts instead because it’s super short, fast and effective – and gives me enough time to wash my hair before heading out for dinner! So don’t feel you have to stick to a certain order of workouts – just change up to whatever suits you best. As long as you get them all done, you’re all good!
