So it has been a little while since I’ve done week 3 and 4 but here we are..
In week 3 and 4 we repeat the workouts from weeks 1 and 2. My goal for these weeks were to workout 5-6 times a week.
Starting week 3 I noticed immediately that I had gotten stronger already! Where I used to be able to do only two full rounds of the circuit in 7 minutes, I was now able to do three full or two and a half circuits within the 7 minutes.
I worked out 5 times this week; 3 resistance workouts, 2 liss workouts and of course a stretch session after every workout.
I started to notice towards the end of the week, that I was very moody and and exhausted. I never got that before from my workouts, I used to get energy from my workouts and feel amazing. But I really started to dislike the workouts more and more.
Week 4 I did feel strong, but I also felt like I was going to cry. I did do my workouts, but when it was time to do my last resistance workout of the week, I just broke down. I honestly hated it. Doing the same moves like I did the other two weeks over and over again, a lot of reps. I just wasn’t feelig it at all. I didn’t finish the last workout.
This week I ended up doing two and a half resistance workouts, 3 Liss workouts and of course a stretch session at the end of every workout session.
Alongside all of this, I didn’t see any difference in my body. Like literally none. I know that four weeks might not be a lot, but when I used to do Lucy Wyndham-Read’s workouts I used to see results so fast! And maybe even more important I absolutely love those workouts!
I thought the best thing for me was to take a break from the BBG for a week and see if I would start to feel any different. And from thereon see if I was going to continue or quit..
So week 5 I did my own thing. I did two HIIT workouts with Lucy one resistance training on my own and one yoga session. 4 workouts in total.
I noticed that I felt so much better! And I had a lot more energy, because I did something I loved doing everyday. Instead of doing something that you hate which sucks all the energy out of your body.
Because of this, I have decided that the BBG just isn’t for me. I’m going back to doing what I love and that is Lucy’s HIIT workouts.
This doesn’t mean that I will stop updating! I will update you from now one on how I’ve been doing with Lucy’s workouts! Because I honestly feel like she deserves a lot more followers!
Just because the BBG didn’t work for me, doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. When you want to workout, or just overall live a healthier life it’s all about finding something that you love. Because if you don’t love what you do, you will feel drained and you won’t be able to keep it up.
There has been a time, where I would have pushed myself to get a ‘perfect body’ eventhough I felt miserable. But trust me that ‘perfect body’ doesn’t mean shit when you feel like you could cry all day from the inside. So it might be a weird thing to say.. But I am freaking proud of myself for quiting the BBG.
