Seeing Progress. Stump in the Road.


Hello, everyone!

This week, Star and I have been seeing progress from our working out. Both of us has been able to increase the weight. We went from 30 lbs to 60! We found this out because the weights we normally use was taken, and hogged, so we had to go the next weight up. We were both shocked! After that, every exercise we did, we increased the weight to see if we complete the exercises and we did. Just another show of progress and we are both excited for it.

It’s a week before Florida Supercon and mother nature has shown her face. It’s frustrating because we are trying to lose weight and become tone for our cosplays and mother nature placed a bump in the road. Oh well. We are women and know that it’s something that won’t last forever. It just stifles our progress. It’s not the end of the world.

If you are going to Florida Supercon, let us know. We would love to meet you!

MY ESCAPE

Road To Rogue Day 11


Hello,, everyone!

Sorry, it’s been a while since I last updated because of these past two weeks Star and I have had a bad cold. She was first and then transferred it to me lol. She was having a fever and I was really sneezing and coughing all over the place and I didn’t want to transfer to anyone else.

SO today I’m hoping to go to the gym today at 6. I’ll be walking to the gym because Star is at work with the car. I don’t mind. Extra cardio! I’m also going back on my intermittent fasting because I’ve learned that eating through the day, my body doesn’t like. It’s like I’m forcing my body to eat. For those of you that don’t know what intermittent fasting is, the definition below.

Intermittent fasting (IF) is a term for an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating.

  • The 16/8 Method: Also called the Leangains protocol, it involves skipping breakfast and restricting your daily eating period to 8 hours, for example from 1 pm to 9 pm. Then you “fast” for 16 hours in between.

The only thing I have in the morning is coffee which let’s admit it, COFFEE IS LIFE. Anyway, thank you to everyone that’s reading so far. Hopefully, I will not be getting sick again. But that’s life, you know? Today I’m vlogging for my personal channel, Tsuki Nerdy Fitness so subscribe to see those videos!

Thank you for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow. Remember to Stay Healthy!

Road To Rogue Day 10


Hello everyone,

Day 2 of Lee Labrada’s 12-Week Lean Body Trainer and my arms feels as if they are about the fall off. I love it though! I hope I can continue on it this time around and complete the entire plan. Also, to help me with my transformation, I’ve decided to go without refined sugars. That means no bars, sugar in my coffee, candy, and other things that have that type of sugar in it. I will do a blog post later on about the difference between refined and unrefined sugar.

Anyway! Today at work, my boss and a couple of coworkers weight themselves again. I didn’t because I know I had breakfast. I normally weigh myself after I use the bathroom in the morning. I know it’s not good to weigh yourself very morning but I love seeing the fluctuations every morning. This helps me know what works with my body and what doesn’t. If I eat something not good, my body will tell me the next morning. Don’t ask how I know, I just do lol. People, who do this understands right?

Like I said, today was Day 2 of Lee Labrada’s 12-Week Lean Body Trainer and I’m so happy that it was over! I almost couldn’t raise my arms to take my shirt off lol. I haven’t worked out like that in a while. It felt really good and I can’t wait for weeks to come. Star is preparing dinner for the rest of the week so get ready for some epic pictures!

Thank you guys for reading and I’ll you later. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!

Road To Rogue Day 9


Hello everyone,

Happy Monday! During the weekend I, of course, binged on popcorn lol. Today at work my boss wanted to do a contest with everyone at work. We all weighed ourselves and I’m 143. When this ends, who knows when that will be, the loser is supposed to buy everyone lunch. WELL, I’m broke all the time because my cut in hours so you know I’m going to be trying hard to lose weight. Anyway, this will help me with my Road to Rogue so I’m not complaining lol.

Road To Rogue Day 7


Hello, everyone! When I skip days, I’ll just continue on the next day.

When I skip days, I’ll just continue on the next day. So! Today is Day 7, not really but yeah, and I think I did well today! I stayed within my calorie goal and I went to the gym! I might want to upload blogs at night because at least I will know how I did through the day instead of guessing lol.

We went to the gym after work and I think that’s what we will be doing for now on. When we eat dinner, we don’t want to move afterward because the day has wined down on us and we feel exhausted. So going before we go home to eat dinner will help a lot. Let me know if you would like to see me post Road to Rogue as a vlog on my blog Tsuki Nerdy Fitness. I’m thinking about doing it.

This week will be the cardio week because, with mother nature knocking at my door and other items at the moment, I feel like I need to concentrate more on burning calories than weight training. I will be trying to binge on the water this week, more than normal to help with the amount of water I will loose. I want to be at 135-130 at the end of the month and I hope that it can be done. If not, it’s not the end of the world. I will be starting a countdown for Supercon to help get my butt in gear!

For those who are in South Florida that reads my blog, let me know if you are going to Supercon so we can do a meetup type of thing. I would love to meet new people!

Thanks for reading and I will see you guys tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!


Breakfast: Coffee with Soymilk

Lunch: Pistachios and 3 Reese Cups (a friend gave me those and if I didn’t have them, I would be WAY under my calorie goal. I don’t do it on purpose, it just happens.)

Dinner: 2 Potato and Vegetable Samosa and a Peanut Butter and Chocolate Quest bar.

Road to Rogue Day 6


Hello, everyone!

Yesterday, I picked up my cousin from the airport and we hung out for a while catching up. I haven’t seen him in more than… maybe 10 years? We are close so seeing him again was great. He was supposed to land at 2 but his flight was delayed by 2 hours. Sucks right? So when I left him at the hotel, it was 6, I think. By this time I was REALLY hungry. I didn’t have much for lunch. I was going to have the chili but I wanted a slice of banana nut bread instead with an aloe drink.For Breakfast, I did have my smoothie. When I was leaving him, I craved pizza. So I ordered the Works from Papa Johns. They have a 40% off coupon on retailmenot.com right now, if you would like to order for yourself lol.

For Breakfast, I did have my smoothie. When I was leaving him, I craved pizza. So I ordered the Works from Papa Johns.

Just don’t go overboard and eat the entire pizza lol. I had two slices and two bread sticks.

As for the gym, we weren’t able to go because of picking up my cousin and going to see The Fate Of The Furious. The movie was great. I would definitely see it again. Thanks to a friend of ours, are able to see some movies as soon as they come out Thursday night. I didn’t think that still happened. But I will tell you one thing, watching a movie in a not so crowded theater is amazing. The downfall is going to bed after 12 but that’s worth it.

Thank you for reading and I will see you guys tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!


Today’s Planned Meals

Breakfast: Coffee

Lunch: Star’s Green Tea Popcorn (Testing out her new flavor. Yum)

Dinner: Leftover Pizza

Dessert: Nothing

Exercise: Gym (weightlifting and elliptical)

Road to Rogue Day 5


Hello, everyone.

Sorry I haven’t updated in a couple of days. I’ve been concentrating on making perlers for Outcon next month and I’ve been doing so pretty big pieces.

17883038_158361628021626_9158328184540758016_n

I’m making sure I have some Zelda ones for sell because a lot of people were asking for them at Hero Hype. If you would like to purchase some perler art, I have some already available on our facebook page shop here. I will still upload a post about that convention.

So how have I been doing? Great! I’ve gone to the gym once this week so far and I’ve been trying to stay within my calorie goal. My little problem right now is Star’s popcorn. It’s so delicious! She sold at two farmer’s markets last weekend and have some leftover. Now I’m like having a couple of small bags as a snack. If you guys are in the Plantation or Tamarac area in Florida, come by and get a tasty treat from Star’s, Poppin Around The World tent at the Farmer’s markets in the area!

Today, my band of my Fitbit broke. Unfortunately, I can’t get a new one so I will have to deal with it in my pocket. 😦 I will have to buy one either Friday when I get paid for next week. I’ve never changed my band before so this will be a new experience. I’ll have to purchase another sports band or find one that’s more durable. I think 6 months is a long time. Products nowadays are made to be perishable. I’m happy that the FitBit itself isn’t damaged.

Breakfast: 

Fruit smoothie

Coffee and Soymilk

Lunch:

Chilli Soup with water

Dinner:

Fish, Salad, and Pita bread (We’ve been having this consistently for the past two days and I can’t get enough!)

Anyways, thank you guys for reading and I’ll see you next time! Remember to STAY HEALTHY!
