Run Otaku Run Year Challenge – Week 15 Day 2

wand_of_fortune_388253

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.

Bloating Suggestion Test

Hello Guys. Happy Thursday. So I started my “Moon Time” and remember when I posted about how to avoid the bloat? I’m going to try out those suggestions and see if it really helps. I’ve gained 3lbs because of it and I want to see if these suggestions will help me lower the bloat or get rid of it complete. I will post when it’s over to let you guys know. If you missed my post, I shared the link below.

To Avoid Bloating During Moon Time

Attending The Green Planet Festival

Tomorrow we will be going to the Green Planet Festival in Fort Lauderdale, FL. I think this is its first year. It’s too bad that we’ve learned about this festival too late because we would have been sponsors. If the festival becomes a big success and they have another one, we will be sponsors for that one. I’m really excited because I personally have never been to this type of festival. The info about it is at the bottom. It will be a great learning experience, since Fitness To Cosplay is on a path of healthy and organic foods. We also use natural products. We want to take care of the planet as much as possible and this festival will help a lot with providing that knowledge. If you want to check out the website and learn more about it, click here. I’ll post later about our experience and some of the things that were done with plenty of pictures.

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!

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!

Using BodySpace at the Gym

Yesterday at the gym, I used Body Space as I was working out. It was easy. I was following one of the programs on the app but I found out that some of the exercises I couldn’t do because someone was using the machines. Also when I completed the day, it showed all the exercises in the plan and not just the exercises I did. So I decided not to go with a plan. I will just concentrated on one body part and go down the list of exercises to do and add them like that. 😀 But other than that, using BodySpace is really helpful! I can see what exercises to do and how to do it because they have videos. I love it. I was going today but Star wasn’t able to go to the gym and leave the bag like we planned. But we’ll try to go again tomorrow morning. I will concentrate on my abs and the next time I go, I will do the legs. Below is the list of exercises I did yesterday and food that I ate.

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.

6 Months From Now…

Fitness inspiration and motivation. It'll be worth it!!!

Yesterday I didn’t go to the park because of had to take care of a hair product label that needed to be created and it rained as soon as 5 o’clock hit. It’s sunny today so we’ll see if I can go skating today. Sharri says I’ve been doing good on the scale so yay for that.

Dinner for last night, I started to eat it before I knew it so I wasn’t able to take a picture of it but I’ll post up a Chicken and Dumpling picture that’s similar. ****takes time to look up the picture**** Ok so I tried to look up a picture and everything was soup. We didn’t have soup. We had 1 boneless skinless chicken breast and 4 small dumplings with some spinach.
