I’m Trying OMAD

Hello everyone!

On my last post, I said how Star has recently started eating OMAD style. Well, now I want to try it. I normally eat with an intermittent lifestyle. I would start eating at 1pm then I pushed it back to 3pm. I want to see how my body reacts to the OMAD lifestyle. Will it hold onto everything I eat at dinner time. Or will it process everything like normal. It’s already been stated that we didn’t eat the best for the past few weeks because of the move.

Once we get paid, we are doing grocery shopping and we will find some OMAD recipes to share with all of you. I will also be doing our first haul since the move and I’m so excited! Let me know if you want to see a weekly grocery haul. We use to do it a while back.

I think this is my first time experiencing OMAD so I’m approaching this like a newbie and trying to learn everything I can. I don’t want to do the diet wrong. Next month I would like to do a video on my progress and experience.

Thank you guys so much for reading this blog! Have a great day and remember to stay healthy!

Tough Time After Moving

Good morning everyone.

If you follow our social media, you know already that we finally found a place. We moved in 2 weeks ago, and we still haven’t unpacked everything. The life of an anime collector, me and crafter, Star. I can’t wait to do a home tour for you guys. The house looks amazing and cute. It’s taking a while to get everything together. There’s enough room for me to workout and do yoga on the days we can’t go to the gym. There are those days.

We are currently balancing out our bills. We didn’t know how high the deposits on the utilities were going to be. So we are struggling a little bit, but that’s OK. The past two weeks, we haven’t been going to the gym every day, but that’s to be expected because of moving. We think we‘ll be able to jump back on the horse today and continue on our journey.

Star‘s new weight is 138. She’s eating one meal a day, and she is making sure she’s eating a full day of calories. I, on the other hand, has gone in the opposite direction ha ha. I’ve gained three lbs but it’s not as bad as I thought. With the way that I‘ve been eating, I thought I was going to gain 7 lbs ha ha.

That’s our update for now. I will be updating the blog more in the future. I’m also coming up with ideas for our YouTube Channel. I want to bring back Manga Mondays. If you have any ideas, let us know. I have the space to record videos, and I’m praying to get my gaming channel up soon as well. Thank you so much for being patient and keeping up with our blog. We appreciate every single one of you.

Thank you again and have a great day!

Future Monthly Progress Videos

Hello everyone!

This morning I got the idea of doing monthly progress videos on our YouTube Channel. This is keep me motivated and add content to the channel.  A long time ago, I had made myself a challenge that I didn’t share with anyone except for Star. I called it the no mirror challenge. I would not STARE at myself in the mirror for as long as I could. I say stare because it’s hard to not look when there are mirrors literally EVERYWHERE. I would shorten it to a glance and I would just look at my face.

Well I don’t remember how long I did this for but when I looked in the mirror, I was shocked at how my body looked. I also remember I weighted at 127lbs. When you are on a fitness journey and you look at yourself everyday, you don’t see the change that’s happening. So not looking for a really long time helps you realize your progress. I suggest you guys try it as well. It also helps when you are wearing a loose fitting shirt.

In the videos, I will show my body but only for like a couple a minutes. I will definitely show my measurements and weight changes. I’m weight training right now so I know that I will gain lean muscle so I don’t expect much change in weight. If I’m trying something knew like a workout or my way of eating, I will talk about that as well.

Getting Back To My Old Self

Greetings everyone!

Last week I started a new workout plan and for the past two weeksI‘ve been eating healthily. Well with a little cheat meal here and there. I try not to look at myself in the mirror now because every time I lookI‘m looking for a big change when it’s not there. 

Well this weekend, I walked by a big mirror and glanced. I looked smaller. I told myself I was lying to myself and kept walking. LOL. I told Star what happened and she said that I did look smaller. That’s such a confidence boost!

We haven’t made it to the store for groceries yet. I’m hoping to go on Wednesday. But we are keeping up with our healthy snacks. Today Star went to Publix and saw the cherries were on sale, $3.99/lb! Now I have cherries to snack on at work. 

Today is chest and triceps day. I‘m so ready for it! Once this week is over, I will know for sure that I‘m back to my old self. Thanks for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Mondays Are The Worst Gym Days

Greeting Guys!

I walked into the gym ready to get my first day of an exercise plan I had in motion. I had walked past the free weights and saw the area filled with me. I was still optimistic that I would be able to do all my exercises without any problems. Man was I wrong! 

IMG_20180618_200557771

I walked out of the changing room looking at my phone to see what’s the first exercise. Once I found that out, I looked at the bench I needed. It was taken. Ok, still feeling good, I looked at next exercise. That bench was taken up too. Ok… I got this. What’s the next exercise? Dips. Ok, that was free.

Chest-monday

I finished my supersets of that I then looked at the benches again, still taken. Ok, so what’s after Dips, the Pec-Deck Machine. Now the gym I go to have two of those machines because many people use them… they were BOTH taken. For crying out loud!

I finally see a bench clear and rush over before someone else gets it. I get my weigh and below is what I see at the free weights.

 

I can’t begin explaining the level of frustration. The thing is I know this is because people are hogging the weights. If you aren’t using them, then put them back! Well, I was able to do my workout but only have the equipment I needed became free. I waited a long time. There’s a bigger gym 15 minutes away from this one but Star’s job is right next door.

I will have to deal for now. Thanks for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day.

Time To Discipline Myself

Greetings everyone!

It’s June and our plans to settle have been dashed for now. We are once again delayed, and I can’t wait anymore. I wanted to be in a place where I’m relaxed and where I feel like I can achieve anything. But I’m not at that place right now and I can’t allow that immobilizes me any longer.

I need to be more disciplined in the way that I eat and exercise. I have to really FORCE myself to go to the gym at times that I don’t want to. I thought back to the times when I was a gym rat and no matter what time of day it was, I was getting my time in.

Now if I get home at night, even though the gym closes at 12 am, I don’t want to go. The most enjoyable times that I feel motivated to go are 12 pm – 1 pm and that’s impossible. The times I work are from 8:30 to 5 pm. I have to find time after work. Every so often I don’t go because Star and I are tired from the day but that shouldn’t be my excuse. Drink a pre-workout and get going!

I enjoy the ones from Amino Energy. They are delicious, and they don’t hurt Star’s stomach. Sometime this week I will go and get a tub. My goal is to go every day. My minimum is 3 days a week. I will place my concentration on strength training. I always fall back on cardio once I don’t go for a while. 

I need to find a good workout I can follow. If you have any suggestions let me know. Thank you so much for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!
