Unless you've been living under an Instagram rock, you've likely heard of Kayla Itsines and her Bikini Body Training Guide. I purchased it last summer in the hopes of getting my ass back to the gym (considering I work at one, you'd think this would be easy), but only managed to get to Week 2, 3 times over. I guess that's what happens when you take two long vacations over the summer... Nevertheless, I started the BBTG again 5 weeks ago and am proud to say that I am still going strong and am already seeing results.

As great as it is to be getting fit, obviously it limits the amount of yummy recipes I'm cooking up and how many delicious restaurant meals I get to try. So, y'know, less content. I've been following a pretty gosh darn strict diet with one cheat meal per week. I'm not a vegetarian anymore either, and my meat consumption has gone up substantially since moving in January. It's been a big lifestyle change, but I'm enjoying it so far. It feels good to be getting back into the fitness game.

I've got some major goals associated with food and fitness: Complete BBTG 1 and 2 (up to 24 weeks!), buy and be very comfortable in a Triangl swimsuit, and learn how to make raw desserts. I realize that raw desserts are still desserts, but the fact that they're made from slightly better ingredients makes me feel a bit better about indulging. Plus, it's a new challenge in the kitchen!
