Hello Everyone. Fitness To Cosplay here with a question. I’m trying to come up with a cosplay name for me. These are the two that Star and I came up with. So which one should it be or should I choose another?
Both of these names mean Moon Cat.
Let me know 😀

Strength Training VS Cardio

CONSCIOUS QUOTES by Ahimsa Deisgns Jewelry. Original Handcrafted, Conscious, Vegan, Zen Jewelry Designs promoting global awareness & using only Earth-Friendly & Cruelty-Free materials.Strength vs. Cardio when you're short on time?

When I first started working out, years ago. I use to love doing cardio because the feeling of your body continuously moving felt great. Now that I’m going to the gym and using BodySpace as my guide to help figuring out what exercises to do, I think I love strength training more. To me, your body does more. With cardio, you continuously do the same thing for however long you want but with strength training, you do a lot more in the same length of time. Once I was done and looked at my log, I found out that I did 9 freaking exercises, NINE! It didn’t seem that way because I was going from one exercise to another.

First, before I say anything else, I want to have a disclaimer here: I’m not a vegan, I eat meat. Right now I don’t because my body is undergoing a clean right now.

One thing about being vegan, I’m finding out, is that it’s easier this time around than 2 years ago. There are a lot more items out now that vegan. Today Star and I went to Publix and while we was walking an aisle, a miso soup package caught my eye. Now I am missing heavier foods like pasta and rice and stuff because I’ve been eating mostly fruits, veggies and bars. I enjoy what I’m eating and that’s why I’ve been vegan for over a week while that last time, I barely lasted 3 days. So anyway, I took a look at it and to my freaking surprise it  was VEGAN. Not only that one but others too. I also got a Split Pea Soup. *happy dance*

I’ve lost 3 lbs so far and I’m happy to see that number go down. I wonder how long I can take being vegan before my body craves in for meat lol. I eat meat no lie. I’m also happy that when I pass by a fast food place, the smell of the food doesn’t tempt me anymore. I smell and go yuck. That’s a sign to me that my body is on the right track and when I want to have a cheat day, it’ll be my choice and not my body.

What a week!

Work for money, design for love. Why are there so many books with title like that about design world? I've got one with the title "How to be disigner without losing your soul". Do you thing other profesions have these philosophic questions?

So I’ve been working my butt off for the past two weeks from customers that came up to me at the booth at the market and I’m happy for it. Now a wave a tiredness hit me and I realize how hard I worked this week and I’m not done yet. I want these customers to be happy about what they are getting and come back to me for more things. The money I’m receiving from these jobs are going towards moving and a new computer. I gotta keep at it and not slack. No time for it. But I would love to curl up and sleep right now though lol.

I was so nervous before I stepped on the scale. I thought it was going to say 1 lb or something but no it said 2 so I’m happy. I haven’t been going down on weight like a use to though, 3 or so lbs a week. I’m not discouraged though. As the photo says, when you feel like quitting just keep pushing and that’s what I will do.

Yesterday, I didn’t go skating like I usually do because I had to throw some things out for bulk trash. So I added it as a cleaning workout. Anybody who tells you that you are not working out when you’re cleaning is a liar and doesn’t clean at all. When I removed a BIG table from the kitchen to outside on the curb, that worked up a sweat lol. That’s that only thing that when out though. I swept up the space after that.

I’m thinking about leaving the bars that’s I’ve been having a snacks alone for a while because I realize that they could be hurting more than helping with some of the ingredients inside of them. I will leave them a long for a while and see what happens. Eveything else I’ve been eating as been fresh foods and veggies, with a little bit of sweet snacks here and there. Example, girl scout cookies. It is that time of the year and I can’t resist but I can restrain myself for going overboard. 4 cookies are 160 calories and that’s my average snack in my lunchbox.

I changed my mind about the cell phone case after I saw this pattern.

Banana Oat (Microwave) Waffle

This is a great option for a snack through the day

Kawaii Fitness

So I posted my banana oat waffle on Facebook and just as I promised I’m going to share with you the super duper 3 (4) ingredient RECIPE that looks sinful but its not!

HERE YOU GO!

Here are the things you will need:

Bananas
Quick Cook oats
Eggs
Cinnamon powder (optional)
Microwavable Waffle mold (I got mine from Saizen-Daiso)

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Take your bananas and slice them into a lixing bowl. I’m not giving any amount because i really didn’t count. I just kinda winged the recipe

2. MASH IT!

3. Then pour almost the same amount of oats into the  mixture. Again I just estimated this. You are going to want your mixture to be thicker than oatmeal consistency because you will still be adding some whole eggs into this

4. Next get 2-3 whole eggs and mix them separately at first then add them to your banana and…
