The Road to Rogue: Learning About Different Body Types

Hello everyone!

This week I found something very interesting. Apparently, we all have different body types that fit into 3 groups. They are Ectomorph, Endomorph, And Mesomorph. Here are the meanings of each body type:

If you would like to know which body type you are, here’s the What Is Your Body Type? Take Our Test! From Bodybuilding.com

I found out that I’m a Mesomorph. So here’s what I know about the Macros of Mesomorphs. They are supposed to eat 40% Carbs, 30% Fat, and 30% Protein. The time limit for a workout should be an hour and no longer. You will feel fatigued if you overdo it. Which has happened to me countless times and now I know why.

Here’s the training regime recommended by rachaelattard.com.

Regular cardio will be the key factor in keeping your body from gaining fat and compound weight exercises will help you achieve lean muscle. Here are some key guidelines:

  • Weight training 3 times per week
  • Moderate cardio 3 times per week
  • HIIT 1-2 times per week
  • Ab exercises 3 times per week
  • One rest day per week

Your weights should be moderately heavy and your reps moderate to high (8-12). The more advanced you are, the heavier your weight can be. Keep the rest between your sets at around 45-60 seconds.

As you can see, I’ve gathered information from multiple sources. When you are researching information, it’s great to not depend on one source. Look into multiple websites and books to make sure you are getting the right information. Thank you guys for reading this post. If you take the test, let me know which body type you are. I’m very interested. I hope the information helps you on your weight loss journey. I might give an update in two weeks explaining how this has helped me. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Getting Back Into The Rythem

Hello everyone!

It is January 24th! Can someone tell me why time is going so fast!? Anyway, for the past 2 weeks, I’ve been going to the gym right after work and I’m getting used to doing it. This is great because soon I will be able to auto myself to go to the gym after work without a problem. I’ve decided to have my rest days as the weekend because my body doesn’t want to leave the bed let alone the house after a week of work. LOL. I like to Youtube and Chill during Saturday and Sunday.

Should that become a shirt design? 🤔 Anyways, I’ve come out with a workout plan and I hope I can keep up with it. I’ve been alternating between cardio days and strength training days through the week. I’ve fallen back in love with Kettlebells again because I’ve used them a couple of times for a workout. They are a great alternative for free weights. Especially since they are being hogged by the “New Year New Me” crowd.

Honestly, I can’t wait for that to past. I mean I want people to live healthily and take care of their bodies but I don’t like the people that do it at the beginning of the year because it’s a trend and then drop off. It’s a pain in the butt to the regulars. That’s all I have for now. I’m happy with the way I’m going right now. My goal is the reach my body goal by June or July. Wish me luck!

Thank you for reading this post! Remember to hit the like if you liked it, follow the blog if you haven’t already, and remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

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 8

Hello, everyone!

Happy hump day! Today I was good with calories until I started eating Star’s popcorn. I swear I can’t resist! Unfortunately, It’s too late to go to the gym because Star is going to do her sisters hair tonight or else I would’ve gone after I’ve done this post. Since our gym close at 12 AM then we can go at 10 or 11.

I’m more of a night owl anyway. I do wish I could go to the gym during the day though because I never know what will happen after I get off of work. Today we had dinner instead of going to the gym right after work. What I thought would happen, happened and we did not go to the gym because as we are sitting here eating dinner, we got busy doing other things.

Star went to go make more popcorn for the Farmer’s Markets this weekend, hence why I said I went downhill at the end of the night lol. But that’s ok! So, for now, I’m 1/7 on gym days but I’m determined. I count Monday as the beginning of my week instead of Sunday just so you know.

I have more to say but I won’t make this an extra long post so I’ll leave it here. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!


Breakfast: Coffee and Cafe Mocha Creamer

Lunch: Pistachios and Chobani Flip Banana and Chocolate yogurt

Snack: 2 Small powdered donuts (A coworker gave me a pack to try because he said they came from Mexico. They remind me of the little Debbie powdered donuts but with less powder. Still good though!)

Dinner: Fish with salad and pita. (Below is a picture of a past plate because I forgot to take a picture of tonight’s plate lol)

Dessert: Lots and LOTS of different popcorn lol. Classic Movie, Ambrosia, and Tiramisu. (If you want to see different pictures of the flavors, let me know.)

If you guys wanted Star’s recipes for her plates, let me know. I will post them in the recipe section on the blog.
