My Daily Schedule (Workouts and Diet)

Kayla Itsines Bikini Body Guide Bodybuilding Girl Fitness Transformation

So this might not sound very interesting to many of you because it seems rather personal and not fitness/ health-related. However, ever since I embarked onto my Fitness Journey, fitness and health pretty much became most important part of what my day-to-day life is about. One thing I realize is that time management is extremely important - since most of us already have a busy enough daily schedule i.e. Work, school, and for some maybe both, and some with kids - it is not always easy to squeeze in extra time for workouts and meal preparation.

So I thought it might be useful if I share with you how I manage and prioritise my time around my job, my workouts, my food and also my relationships with those around me.

I am more relaxed during the weekends - I still eat 5 meals a day and workout on Sunday, but I don't really have a specific timetable. I normally spend time with my family, my boyfriend and my dog (occasionally with friends), write up some more blogposts, learn more Korean, do some baking and cooking, try some new and fun activities around town, and that's pretty much it (:

  1. Great info, Emi! I just started week 2 of BBG and have found your blog/insta to be really inspiring and informative. My job starts at 0730 and runs to 1600, so getting in a LISS workout during lunch is a great recommendation! So glad you started this blog :)

  2. Hey Emi!

    I'm so excited I found you via Insta from BBG's tags. Want to say that I feel super inspired by you and your progress! You look great! I was actually really surprised to find out that you live in HK since I rarely see fitness bloggers/IGs that come from there.

    A little background about me, I was born in Macau, moved to the States when I was 5, but studied abroad in HK in college and loved it so much! Seeing that you're from there kind of gives me a glimpse of what my life could be if I lived there, which is awesome. Are you an expat or are you a HK native?

    Anyway, love your journey girl, keep it up! Would love to see you make some healthy asian recipes!!

  3. Hello Emi!

    I first stumbled upon your Instagram back in September, I was amazed by your 4 weeks transformation photo back then and showed that to my sister. But now you have amazed us with even more transformations and you are such an inspiration! :)

    I tried out the first exercise from Kayla's BBG and as a person who never really exercised much, I found it really hard and tough. I experience muscle pain and it was difficult to convince myself to go on. Would you mind sharing how were you able to keep on working out when you first picked up BBG?

    Thanks a lot and I really appreciate your blog and sharings! So much inspiration :) Hope you have a good day!

    Best,
    Jess

      Thank you so much for your kind words, means a lot to me (:
      For me, it was difficult but if it's not challenging, it's not working right? The fact that it was difficult for me motivated me even more to get stronger. Hope this helps and you can also find some tips from my post: http://stayfitandtravel.blogspot.hk/2014/11/how-to-stay-motivated-and-keep-going.html (:

  4. Hi Emi!!

    Is this what you ate during the weightloss period or is this maintenance? And do you strength train 4 to 5 times a week and so LISS once a week?

    Thanks

    i stumbled upon your instagram account a few days ago. i got so motivated after looking at all your amazing photos and with your great body you have right now. i would like to ask if you did any extra cardio apart from the Kayla BBG program during the 12 weeks.

    1. Hello - thank you!! I did the maximum number of cardio sessions that Kayla stated in her guide (i.e. the number of LISS and HITT) and for me I think that's already more than enough! (: xx Good luck with your fitness journey too Melissa xx

  9. I think ORB was a great way to motivate us to get to our goals - it seems like it went by so fast! I am not to my goal but like the giveaway tank says - Giving up is not an option! =) ... I think y'all should do another challenge so I can try harder and be able to post a "results" post =) Either way you and Leigh Ann are awesome for doing this - great job girls!! =)
