So here we are – Week 4 of the Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide, a third of the way through and we’re starting to see some difference! I’m really pleased with my progress pictures this time around because not only do I feel so much better but I can also see a big difference in my waist, thighs, bum and tummy which is great!
The interesting thing about my week 4 update is that I’ve actually gained 4lbs and 1 1/4 between my bum and my hips! However I don’t tend to worry about the number on my scales too much as with the Kayla programme we’re gaining muscle which weighs more anyway, and those extra inches on my bum I blame the squats for! I’m really pleased with my progress and it’s so encouraging to see this much difference after just 4 weeks.
Week 2 Measurements
10 Stone 2 lbs | 142 lbs (+4 lbs)
Bust – 32 1/2″(-3 1/2″)
Waist – 30″ (- 0″)
Hips – 36 1/2″ (+1/2″)
Bum – 40″ (+3/4″)
Arms – 11″ (- 0″)
Thighs – 23 1/4″ (+1/4″)
= 2 inches lost and 4lbs gained…eeek!
I’ll hold my hands up and say that I had a bit of a dud week last week which probably did hold my progress back slightly. I’ve been really tired and very busy meaning a few skipped workouts and a couple of meals out, but for the most part I’ve been plowing through with my smoothies and protein filled dinners which have kept me on track! Sweaty kickboxing classes, impossible Kayla circuits and lots of dog walking have been my exercise the past fortnight with plenty of fresh veg, brown grains, fish and chicken with a side of green tea too.
Joe and I are thinking about booking a last minute holiday at the end of the month so if we do it’s all systems go to make sure I’m looking my best in that bikini! Fingers crossed girls, let’s kick butt in weeks 5-6!
