I started reading about the program, and I was intrigued by how eating healthy and working out on a quite tight schedule would give such great results. It seemed like sharing transformation pictures were really inspiring to both the person sharing them, but also all the people following. Until that day I never would have thought that taking a picture of myself in the undies would give me motivation. But I reluctantly did it anyways. I said to myself that I propably would never publish it anyways, but that I would regret it if I someday would like to see how much I changed. I actually saved the pictures in a secret folder on my phone, because I didn't want anyone to see it.
At this point, I wasn't really overweight or unhappy with my body to any exctent - at least not more than the average girl - but I had a wish to be stronger and more toned. So I got myself an example of the BBG, and a gym membership. I also started my instagram account (@kristin_bbg).
The first resistance workout was leg day. It was horrible. I barely got through it, and I do not think that I even did all the exercises and reps. Afterwards I laid flat on the floor for almost ten minutes, before I litterally crawled into the shower. I swear I could not walk down stairs without looking like a new born giraffe in a week. And then it was leg day again.
The LISS went a lot better. I found a joy in walking/jogging on the mill that I never thought I would. I challenged myself by adjusting the rise, and I felt good! I did not do the HIIT regularly, but when I got bored walking, I did some running. It seemed to help on the cardio, though propably not as much as if I had done it a couple of times every week.
After two weeks I compared the before and after shots of me. I did not feel that different, and I couldn't see any difference in the mirror. But WOW! I could actually see the difference in the pictures! My motivation was really strong after this, and it kept me going all the way through week 4.
