I’m Kyley, also known as accountantscanbefit on Instagram. I am a 30 year old CMA/CPA living in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
I began my fitness journey in August 2015 after I became sick and tired of my clothes not fitting, feeling out of shape, and overall unhappy. I realized then that the only way to change things was to DO something about it. I created my “fit-stagram” at the same time to hold myself accountable. I never expected for so many people to begin following me, or that I would actually keep up with all my workouts! Thanks to the power of social media, I have made so many new friends and am able to feel inspired and empowered on a regular basis, even though many of these amazing women I have never even met in real life.
I began my journey following Kayla Itsines’ Bikini Body Guide, and have successfully completed 5 full rounds of her program; guide 1 (weeks 1-12) three times and guide 2 (weeks 13-24) twice. I have come leaps and bounds ahead of where I was in August 2015, not limited to weight and inch losses. I am more confident, outgoing, and happier.
I no longer follow the BBG program, instead I am following Corporate Sneakers My Best Body program, an amazing weight lifgting guide which Abbie worked directly with me on to modify to also accomodate my half marathon training program. I will be running the Calgary Marathon 10k race on May 28, and lululemon’s SeaWheeze half marathon on August 12. I have zero running experience so it’s a difficult task! I have a goal, but I intend to meet it.
My new schedule involes 3 runs a week, 2 MBB weight days, 1-2 rest days each week. One will be an active rest day with yoga, walking, or a bike ride if my body is up for it. If not, I will rest completely. My goals have changed since I started BBG, so what I am doing has changed. Change is good. Embrace it.
