What workout program do I do?

I started with Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide e-book available from http://www.kaylaitsines.com/guides.  I now use her guide through the SweatWithKayla app for IOS which can be found on the app store.


Do I follow Kaylas nutrition plan?

No. I practise my own version of clean eating. My personal guidelines for nutrition are to eat clean, whole nutritious food (no processed food, no sugar as an added ingredient, low saturated fat etc) 90% of the week and have TREATS ( aka anything I like) 10% of the week, which I count as roughly half a day.


How tall am I?

Just over 5’7 which is around 172cm


How much did I weigh at the beginning?

9st 12lbs or 63kg


How much do I weigh now?

I rarely weigh myself anymore as I prefer to go by how I feel in my cothes and by my progress pictures but the last time I checked it was 9st or 57kg


What do I do for LISS (low intensity steady state cardio).

At least three times per week I walk outdoors with my dog and baby, for around 40 minutes.


What do i Do for HIIT (high intensity interval training)?

I do all my HIIT workouts indoors, at home, without any equipment.  I do it for 15 mins once per week and I use a variety of different workouts posted on instagram and created by Lisa @islandlivingdream click here for a link to her page.


Do I use a gym?

No. I do all my workouts at home in my dining room, or I’m walking outdoors.


What equipment do I use at home?

I have a pair of 4kg dumbbells, a skipping rope, an exercise mat and I use a dining room chair or an old ikea footstool as a step/bench.


Did I breastfeed during this program?

Yes. I was exclusively breastfeeding for the first 8 weeks ( my baby was then nearly 6 months old) I didn’t diet during this time but I tried to eat nutritious food but keep my calories up around 2000 per day and my milk supply was not affected.


How long before I started to see a change?

At the end of week 5 was the first time I saw a difference, up until then my waistline seemed to fluctuate every week.

  1. Hi Nikki…just came across your instagram and then your blog..It was really helpful as I have been thinking whether to take d nutrition guide or just the exercise guide from kayla and this helped..I think I will start with just exercise and work my own diet.. your story is inspiring. .keep up the good work..I am a fashion blogger from India and into fitness too but after seeing kayla’s bbg community I want to get on to that bandwagon and see myself transforming too..thanx again



  2. Hi!
    Just wondering, every time you finish a round and start on the next, do you wait until week 9 to add in HIIT again? Or once you added HIIT into your workouts in round 1 did you continue HIIT every week throughout all rounds?
    Thanks, Renee.
    P.s. Awesome blog! You’ve answered many questions that I had and some I hadn’t even thought of yet! The post on what to do when you miss a workout really put things into perspective and I’ve started planning my weeks with a best case scenario and then allowing for a plan b at the end of the week.


  3. Hi! Love your blog and your insta! I’m just starting BBG and have a quick question! I downloaded the app “SweatwithKayla”. Do you think I should also purchase her Bikini Body Guide E-book? I’ve always been in pretty good shape and my eating is decent. I’m starting BBG just to shake things up a bit. Thanks! ❤
