Fitbit Track Day 3

I would be the one that says, Hey I’m going to track my day to day progress with fitbit and then miss a day. Ugh. Anyways, Day 2 was low activity because we decided to stay home and try to get some items done for Holiday Matsuri. Time got away from us and the gym was closed by the time we realized.

Day 3 was much better. We walked to Denny’s to get breakfast. It’s a couple of blocks from the house. Afterwards, we walked to the gym which was still walking distance but far. At the gym, we worked on our arms and did 30 mins of cardio. We walked home and then went to Joann’s for more supplies. Once we came home, we stayed in and burned the midnight oil. It’s going to be a crazy two weeks.

That’s Day 2 and 3, thanks for reading. It’s motiving me to keep moving so far. It’s definitely helping me want to go to the gym more just so I can reach my step goal. I’ll see you guys tomorrow. DO IT FOR COSPLAY!

 

Challenge Rest Day but Cardio Day at the gym

cats-flags_00360685

So Suta wanted to do cardio yesterday and I agreed. You don’t have to do the challenge every day. Some times life gets in the way and you need to change it up a little. Also, Monday still kicked our butts with all the exercise we did with the cycling so we wanted to take it easy.

She has been saying that she wanted to get back into running for weeks. So I told her to go to the treadmill and start running. She agreed and I decided to walk because her, going speed #3. I took a video of her running 😀 Anyway, as she was going, she said that she was feeling the tingling sensation that you sometimes.

Legs Tingling and Itching During and After Running

The link above is from Livestrong and they explain what could be the problem. I was getting them as well from walking on the treadmill. So after awhile, Suta said she had to stop because of it and we did. We went to the elliptical next and had to stop after 20 minutes because we still felt them. We had a good workout but had to stop because the tingling was getting to much. It was annoying. Suta said that after a while of doing it, a couple of days a week, the tingling should go away. She’s going to try running again tomorrow.

Run Otaku Run Year Challenge – Week 15 Day 2

Mondays seems to be the days we can DEFINITELY go to the gym and not have to worry about what we have to do afterwards. So yesterday, we walked into the gym and say that they were going to start cycling class. We asked them when and they said today and you’ll need to sign up at 6:30. We went to go do some strength training and then came back at 6:00 right to beat the possible rush and they said that it had to be 6:30 on the dot. Fine! So we went to go exercise some more and came back at 6:25. People were lining up but we were able to sign up. What they didn’t tell us was that the class was at 7:30. VERY important information.

So we went to do circuit since we had to wait 30 minutes. Ten minutes before class started, we decided to leave circuit so we can get a bike. As we walked, a girl stopped us and asked about our shirts. I had our logo printed on shirts and we wore them as our gym shirts. She asked if it was a group and that she’s very interested. We told her about it and she was very excited. She said that she wanted to be a part of it. That’s great!

After we talked to her, we went to our class with 4 minutes to spare. Our instructor was a man, gay (not that it matters) and totally hilarious. He had us laughing the entire workout. He made it so fun and let everyone know that they can do it at their own pace. Good to know.

Suta was a freaking star! She looked amazing. She said that she loved doing cycling class and it showed! I, on the other had, well, I don’t know I looked. A lady said I looked awesome but I don’t know. That’s my second cycling class ever. I enjoyed it. When he said that you was going to sweat, he was kidding! OMG I had sweat dripping off me and I’ve never had that done before for a workout. I’ll definitely start doing cycling classes every Monday.

Week Challenge #2 – Day 3

So I did the Jack Knife Situps and those were  A LOT easier to do than the regulars. so I’ll do that for the rest of the challenge. Rope jumping has gotten a lot easier. I thought it would hurt my boobs but not so much. I don’t even think about it when I’m jumping.

I had to place a pillow at my lower back because the floor hurts too much. It looks silly but it helps a lot. I even tried to fold the mat to were my lower back is and it’s still not comfortable. What can you do?

Week Challenge #2 – Day 2

Yesterday I was able to do a video of my workouts. When I looked back at the videos, I saw how much I suck! lol I pray at the end of all of this, I can get through a workout without looking silly and dying at the end. lol

I need to find other sit-ups to do because the regular ones hurt. I saw my cousin do one where he’s legs are up in the air and he moves upward. I think I’ll try that today. The floor hurts though! I also did the rope jumping without shoes. I kept hitting my toes! Ouch! I’ll wear my sneakers tonight. Always a learning curve. I joined Youfit! So on the days that I can, I’ll go to the gym and do the challenges there.

My calves are so tight. Kinda hard to walk but that’s a sign of progress so I’m not complaining, much. lol

Happy New Year!

Last year was a trip with all the moving and people in and out of our lives. I’m happy that last year is over. Now we can move forward. I’m starting this year at a number that I haven’t seen in years. 127.6. I haven’t been that weight since high school. My pants are now baggy and my stomach shrunk in a bit. I was worried that my legs will be twigs before my start to lost weight in my stomach. My body loses weight on my bottom half first before my top half. It’s a pain.

Suta and I are starting this year with a challenge that my cousin came up with. Each week, we are going to come up with a challenge that we are going to do. This week, since it’s only a couple of days, will be drinking tea for lunch or dinner. Tonight Suta will be making dinner so we are having tea for lunch. This is going to be fun. We are planning on doing this challenge all year.

We are planning on changing gyms. From Zoo Health club to Youfit. There’s one opening soon down the street and the monthly payment is cheaper. Suta started a second job so it will be kinda difficult for her to go. BUT I will have her go with me when there’s a chance that she has a day off her second job.

That’s it for now. Off to the races!

Preparing Backfire

https://gasoutherncri.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/blog1.jpg

I was hoping to lose weight before Thanksgiving while fasting and exercising for 3 days but it doesn’t seem to be working. Well, I don’t fast the whole day, I eat something small for breakfast, nothing for lunch, drink plenty of water and eat dinner. I exercised Monday but not yesterday because Star was doing her sister’s hair. We went to get dinner on the way home and then came home after 9. I really hate eating dinner late. I don’t want the food to be sitting in my stomach but sometimes you can’t help it.

If we don’t go to the gym again today, I’m doing a video from Fitness Blender. I found them on YouTube a long time ago. They have fitness videos for free on the site. I recommend looking them up. They are second best to Dailyburn.

I might even do that on the weekend since the gym we go to is so far. Just try to keep my body moving because if I stop, so will it.

Have a Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving you guys!

It’s Friday! Thinking about Juicing.

Hi guys. Happy Friday! Time went by so quickly. OK so we were thinking that we could start juicing during the weekend and up to Thanksgiving. I think it’s a good idea because, with all the food we will eat on Thanksgiving, it will give our stomachs sometime to prepare. It’ll be easier to do it at our job in the farmer’s market, yes we work 7 days a week, because we have vendors that sells juice. We will then eat the rest of the dinner we had on yesterday, curried rice and veggies with chicken sausage so it won’t go to waste.

After doing cardio days, I found that working out yesterday was kinda hard. We did strength training for 30 then cardio for 30 mins and the cardio was a challenge. Maybe my  body felt out of sync with the strength training? Star said it was the end of the week so our bodies our winding down. Maybe? I’m already ready to hit it hard next week. We are working out for an hour today again instead of hour and a half like we normally do.

Another thing that sucks is that my moon cycle started and that already messes with my weight. Being a girl sucks! Now I know why my weight was stuck for two weeks while I’m exercising and eating right. Well at least I didn’t gain like I normally do. Hopefully that means that once this is all over, the pounds will melt right off. Let’s hope.

Have a great day guys!

Back To It

Hello everyone. So I’m back. Things are settled… for now. So now Star and I can focus on trying to get Fitness to Cosplay, as well as other business ventures we are trying out at the moment, off the ground. We reached 700 followers on our instagram, so we thought that it was a good time to create a online store to sell items. Many will be handmade. Such as crocheted and knitted hair accessories.

We thought long and hard about what we were going to sell. We want to sell workout clothes and graphic shirts created by us. But I wanted more variety, so I thought that maybe we could get other people involved to make money for themselves, such as cosplayers and artists.  Everything will be made by me, journal covers, calendars, bookmarks stuff like that. We will split the profit in half.

I think this will be great because cosplaying is expensive and this will help them make money.  (‐^▽^‐)

I’m back at the gym. We found this great gym that’s a block away from our jobs that’s called Zoo Health Gym. They have classes, a sauna and other goodies. I will be posting my workouts like I use it. They have a challenge that’s going to start on the 17th. Star and I want to join. I’ll post up the details on the challenge later.

I use Bodyspace, that’s a part of Bodybuilding.com. It helps me keep track of my workouts and also help me find what workouts to do. You guys should check it out. Star wants to go on a 3 days fast once a month and I think that’s a good idea. I’m using Myfitnesspal again to help keep track. Now it’s the help keep track of me eating enough because I’ve been eating lighter foods so sometimes I don’t make it to 1200. I make it to, 800-1000.

Well that’s all for now. Cya at the gym!
