Good morning everyone.
If you follow our social media, you know already that we finally found a place. We moved in 2 weeks ago, and we still haven’t unpacked everything. The life of an anime collector, me and crafter, Star. I can’t wait to do a home tour for you guys. The house looks amazing and cute. It’s taking a while to get everything together. There’s enough room for me to workout and do yoga on the days we can’t go to the gym. There are those days.
We are currently balancing out our bills. We didn’t know how high the deposits on the utilities were going to be. So we are struggling a little bit, but that’s OK. The past two weeks, we haven’t been going to the gym every day, but that’s to be expected because of moving. We think we‘ll be able to jump back on the horse today and continue on our journey.
Star‘s new weight is 138. She’s eating one meal a day, and she is making sure she’s eating a full day of calories. I, on the other hand, has gone in the opposite direction ha ha. I’ve gained three lbs but it’s not as bad as I thought. With the way that I‘ve been eating, I thought I was going to gain 7 lbs ha ha.
That’s our update for now. I will be updating the blog more in the future. I’m also coming up with ideas for our YouTube Channel. I want to bring back Manga Mondays. If you have any ideas, let us know. I have the space to record videos, and I’m praying to get my gaming channel up soon as well. Thank you so much for being patient and keeping up with our blog. We appreciate every single one of you.

Thank you again and have a great day!
2018 has made some life-changing situations in our lives since the 2nd of the year. The universe has continued to cleanse us of everything that isn’t useful or for our good. We welcome it but it’s really a struggle right now. But we aren’t giving up.
We won’t be going to Florida Supercon this year because of financial hardship so we are aiming for Megacon Tampa Bay in September. We don’t know who we will cosplay. Rogue and Storm are meant for Supercon so they will have to wait for next year. If you want to know who we will cosplay, check out our Patreon. For as low as a $1, you will see who we will cosplay, the progress of making it and more.
Your support to our Patreon will help us continue to pull through and do what FTC does best and that’s to inspire the cosplay and other communities to live a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you so much for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day.
I hope 2018 is treating you well so far. We are starting off this year with moving to a new place. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to create videos for a while unless I do some sort of vlog. Currently, we are looking for a new home but that’s not stopping us from achieving our goals. We’ve been going to the gym consistently this week. We are working on eating healthy because we are trying to save money. We all know that eating healthy is expensive but we are watching ourselves.
While we were moving, my poor phone was broken and couldn’t be used. I’m getting a new one but it won’t be an iPhone. It’s ok though. I need a phone. Things might be rough right now but we know what the endgame is and this makes it easier. Out with the old and in with the new. We aren’t letting this get us down. We know it’s a good thing.
Thank you guys for reading the post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!
Today we’ve hit 100 subs! We were able to finally get our custom URL! It’s not www.youtube.com/c/fitnesstocosplay. Our next goal is the hit 10k views. Thank you so much to everyone who has helped us and support us through the channel!
My plan for the future is to get a capture card for the PS4 so I can add more let’s plays to the channel. Let me know if you are enjoying the channel so far. I’m open to suggestions to make the channel better!
Here is our video of what we did during Hurricane Irma. We have our internet and power back, thank goodness. There are still a lot of people without it. We have heard that another storm called Maria could be making it’s way to us, we hope not!
We did some drunk karaoke to help pass the time, you have been warned lol
The money you donate each month will, not only go to products, equipment and selling at conventions, but also help us reach our other goals such as being personal trainers or dietitians.
THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS
Shannon and Sarah!
Hello, everyone! Happy Saturday! We are coming up on the time where we want to spread our wings and do our own thing. That would mean leaving our 9 – 5 jobs behind. This will give us so much freedom expand Fitness To Cosplay and everything else we want to do to the fullest. But we still need to pay bills.
What are our plans?
We want to create items to sell where the money will go straight to us and not FTC. I will add more content to our Twitch, Youtube, and other social media sites for FTC. Another thing is that we want to open a Patreon so that our fans can donate if they want to. Now, since we are so close to breaking away, I’m wondering if I should open a Patreon page now or after.
I’m always wanting to open one but Star says we have to wait to get out more content. What do you guys think? Would you help us on Patreon now or would you guys like to wait til later for me to add more content? Not only that. We know what other creators offer their patrons but since we are so different from most people, I don’t know what we can offer.
I know there’s things like merchandise, shoutouts, secret twitch streams, and other stuff. What do you think we should offer that will keep you guys coming back month after month? Thank you for your input!
For those of you that don’t know, we have an Etsy store, fintesstocosplay.etsy.com, that we sell our custom designed shirts, buttons, bags, coffee mugs, etc on. In December, our printer that we used since we started our store had sold the business and sold his machines to someone who’s not taking care of them properly. So we had to find someone else that could print our designs for us.We had a great start but recently they have been behind on our orders and we are at their mercy. Unfortunately, we’ve had bad reviews because of it and we can’t take it anymore.
So we are moving our shirt designs to Teespring because they will take care of production and our customers will get their shirts on time. Fortunately, Teesprings uses the same shirts that we get for the orders so no quality lost there. The shirts will be higher priced because of the profit margin and we hope that everyone understands why. We will still sell shirts for a lower price at conventions and other events. The link to the Teespring store is here.
One of our future goals is to purchase a shirt printing machine for ourselves but that will be way off because the machine we want is 20k. We are trying to raise enough money for the machine, the supplies, and the location.
I hope your weekend was eventful. I’ve been battling a cold so I’ve been taking my time and not doing so much. One thing I’ve done is thinking about my life and where I want it to go. I want to work for myself and Fitness To Cosplay. I want to create content for Youtube, Twitch and other media out there. For that, I need time. I’ve seen so many people talk about how they had to quit their job, do what they love and was successful doing it.
For some time now, I’ve been thinking why couldn’t I do it. I see so much potential and I truly believe that I will be able to do it. Now people who are close to me would normally tell me no, you aren’t sure that you can make the money. That it’s not a good idea. That’s why I haven’t told anyone. This is my decision and if it doesn’t work out, I’ll get a part-time job.
I, at least, want to try and make it since I have so much confidence. What I will do is upload videos to Youtube, stream on Twitch, go to craft shows with handmade products like my perler beads and Star’s jewelry wrapping. All I need to do is believe and work hard at it. I’ll give my two-week notice at my job next week.It will be easy because the job is really stressful. I work at a print shop and it’s really emotional draining. I keep stopping myself from
It will be easy because the job is really stressful. I work at a print shop and it’s really emotional draining. I keep stopping myself from quitting on the spot and not coming in. People who have had stressful jobs in the past will know what I mean. I’m excited about my decision and this will really change my life.
Thanks for reading and remember to STAY HEALTHY!
Hey, everyone! We need your help! We want to create a Patreon page as an another way to grow our business and continue to be inspirations to the community. We are having a hard time thinking of what the tiers should be. No one knows what they want better than the Patreons themselves! We are open to suggestions for what we should offer at different tiers. Also, let us know how much those tiers should be. If you don’t want to comment on this post, you can DM us. Thank you in advance for your advice. Without you guys, we won’t have grown so much already. Thank you for your support!
Post for Patreon goals coming soon.
