Wow, I can’t believe these past 12 weeks flew by. After I completed Anna Victoria’s FBG Guides 1 and 2, my body needed a new challenge. Her guides aren’t bad, but I needed a change, and I didn’t think I could dedicate a half hour to abs after a 30 minute LISS session three times a week anymore. So, I started the PWR workout by Kelsey Wells on the Sweat app three months ago.

I’ve come to the conclusion that I will always be rotating through different fitness routines. (Aren’t we all?). It makes sense that there are a plethora of fitness routines out there. As long as you keep challenging yourself and eat responsibly (since eating well is unfortunately responsible for 80% of your overall physique) you will continue to see progress. Or so I thought?
What’s frustrating me is is that I don’t feel I see any quantifiable progress in the mirror. I am gaining weight on the scale, and since the mirror plays mind tricks on me, I usually can’t tell if I’m gaining fat and/or muscle. THE WORST. This has been the hardest thing for me on this fitness journey. Surprisingly, putting the time into working out is the least difficult. Wrapping my mind around what I see in the mirror has been the most difficult by far.
Since a lot of the BBG girls I follow on Instagram had moved on to eitehr BBG Stronger or PWR, I decided to give PWR a go. I have always been drawn to lifting weights, even as a pre-teen. I will write up a full review of the first 12 weeks for those of you interested in the program. Below is what the previous week looked like for me.
Off. My goal is to turn my “off” days into a 30 minute LISS day. Baby steps.

I had planned to do HIIT sprints, but Bri came home sick from his work trip, and to be honest, I needed to run errands.
PWR wk 12 Legs
PWR wk 12 Shoulders & Abs
I loved using the cable machine for the bent-over reverse fly. I can only handle 2.5lbs at the moment. Looking forward to making it up to 7.5lbs. I feel like such a wimp with a measly 2.5lbs but I keep reminding myself that our bodies are amazing and resilient and I’ll be increasing resistance by month’s end.
