After a fabulous vacation eating, drinking and touristing, it is time to get back to my workouts. I have been using the Sweat with Kayla App on and off all Summer and am going to start in earnest this week. It is easy to follow and I really like how it counts down the time and you can swipe to the next exercise. There are three days of resistance workouts intermixed with HIIT (high intensity interval training) and/or LISS (low intensity steady state cardio) with one day off. The Kayla Itsines App includes a meal plan and shopping list that I haven’t used but may add that in too. I have been using the bench on our deck for the step-ups but would like a shorter one for some of the other exercises I have not been able to do without it. I put my phone next to me while I exercise so I can follow the workouts and swipe to the next one, but it would be great to have the the Bose SoundSport In-Ear Wireless Headphones so I can listen to music at the same time. I think it might help distract me from how hard the workouts are. If you are using the App or want to keep each other accountable, leave a comment below. I would love a workout buddy to help me get back in shape..

[…] As many of you may or may not know, I have been on the quest to lose weight and get in shape for a big birthday looming in my near future. I have lost almost 20 pounds and am still working at it on a daily basis. I was hiding under tops that seemed to get more and more diaphanous, so I really didn’t realize how much weight I was holding on to until I saw some pictures of myself at a family party. I knew my dress was snug, but I didn’t think it was that bad! UGH! I still need to get some more weight off and I have to make working out a priority. When Maidenform contacted me to try out their new sports bras, I knew that it was the perfect partnership to make me get active. It is not easy to done a sports bra and have my picture taken for everyone to see, but it has motivated me to keep after my walking and doing the Kayla Itsines workouts. […]
[…] Sweat App – I can’t seem to commit to going to the gym and besides walking, I need a plan to follow at home or on the go to keep in shape. I love this App and have been pretty faithful at doing it on a regular basis. If you sign up – let me know – I would love to hear what you think. […]
