2018 has made some life-changing situations in our lives since the 2nd of the year. The universe has continued to cleanse us of everything that isn’t useful or for our good. We welcome it but it’s really a struggle right now. But we aren’t giving up.
We won’t be going to Florida Supercon this year because of financial hardship so we are aiming for Megacon Tampa Bay in September. We don’t know who we will cosplay. Rogue and Storm are meant for Supercon so they will have to wait for next year. If you want to know who we will cosplay, check out our Patreon. For as low as a $1, you will see who we will cosplay, the progress of making it and more.
Your support to our Patreon will help us continue to pull through and do what FTC does best and that’s to inspire the cosplay and other communities to live a healthy lifestyle.
Thank you so much for reading this post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day.
It’s the middle of the week. Time is going by fast. For the past couple of weeks I’ve been looking at a lot of videos on Youtube from Fitspo Youtubers. One of the videos was about constipation.
When you are using MyFitnessPal, they will default you to 1200. I started to realize that once I did this, I started to become constipated. I increased my calorie intake up to 1350 because I went to a calorie counter on a website. I still don’t think I eat enough. So now I will increase my calories to 1500 and see if that’s enough for my body to not have an issue.
Years ago, I used to use Bodybuilding.com to help me find a good program to use. Now they want you to pay $8.99 for the programs when they were once free. It’s really annoying because I love using the apps they have. Two of my favorite programs was Lean Body and Shortcut to Shred. I searched online for a similar program and came across a free ebook for Shortcut to Shred from the Bodybuilding website. They had the 6-week workout plan and I’m SO happy I found it. I can pull up the pdf on my phone and follow the workouts. They also have a meal plan but I would rather find my own meals.
Thank you guys so much for reading this post. I will let you know in the coming weeks if increasing my calories helped stopped my constipation. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day.
This past month, I have lost 5 pounds! If I keep this up, I will be ready for Florida Supercon in 4 months! I have been using what I’ve learned in the last post about different body types and lowering my fat intake. The problem that I’ve seem to be having is getting enough protein. I might have to take some protein pills or drink some protein shakes just the get the extra amount in.
Another way I’m trying to help myself lose weight is planning my life. On YouTube, It would seem that planning has a huge community and I stumbled upon it. Now I’m addicted and always watching Plan With Me videos. When I use to plan, I didn’t know what to do with the stickers and the washi tapes. I dropped it so easily. But know I have an idea and the videos I watch will keep me going if I’m stuck. I’m thinking about buying stickers off of Etsy. Maybe I can find some Anime or Manga ones. That would be so cool!
The planner I will be using is The Big Happy Planner from Michael’s. I’m going to use the planner for a couple of weeks and then I will make my own Plan With Me videos. Anyone interested in that? The videos I’ve seen have been stay-at-home mothers. I’m a person that goes to the gym and have their own business. I will even add meal plans. That sounds fun to me.
Hopefully, this will be a big part of my life and my weight loss journey. You can’t go off the path if it’s already planned. Thank you guys for reading this post. Let me know if you plan in the comments. Have a great day and remember to say healthy!
Hello everyone! Star and I are taking part in the Countdown To Change. It’s a Youfit challenge they have every year. You can win cash prizes. Star is doing it to win but I’m doing it to help motivate. If I’m part of a challenge, I know that I will stick to it and accomplish my goals. We weren’t able to do it last year. 3 times a week they have classes that you can take. I don’t know if you get a personal trainer. That would be cool though.
It ends April 1st. So that means you have 2 months and 1 week to lose as much weight as possible. They go by percent and not pounds. Thank goodness! We went to weight ourselves at the gym and the first scale was so off. It said I was 123 and I WISH that was true! LOL. That around the goal weight I want to be by Supercon.
I weighed myself this morning and I was 147.2. Yeah, WAY OFF. So he went to go get the dial scale. It said I was 143. Still off but oh well. Not 20 pounds off! So now it’s a race to the finish. Star and I said that we will take a picture of our own scale at home with the phone to show the date. This way, we can mark our own progress.
Thank you for reading this post! Wish us luck! Have a great day and remember to stay healthy!
Good morning everyone! Here are all the videos I was able to upload on our Youtube channel for Florida Supercon 2017. I wasn’t able to cosplay but it was so much fun. I met a lot of friends and some interesting people! Enjoy the videos and if you haven’t already, please subscribe!
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!
I’m so excited that Florida Supercon is so close. Things might change from our original plans. We might now be cosplaying Rogue and Storm because we don’t have to money for the fabric which sucks. Star and I have made progress with our weight loss. We both reached 10lbs lost and we’ve lost inches off our waist. She lost 3 inches and I lost 2. But Florida Supercon isn’t our only goal. We want to look great in ANY cosplay we do in the future.
We are planning on going to Holiday Matsuri at the end of the year. Maybe to Paradise City or DragonCon. We will see. We’ve talked about our Youtube Channels and what we wanted to place on them. Here’s what we came up with so far;
Fitness To Cosplay will have workout videos in cosplay, healthy recipes, reviews on different products and equipment, convention vlogs, cosplay slideshows, and cosplay lookbooks.
Tsuki Nerdy Fitness will have my personal vlogs, videos on different discussions, reviews on anime, manga, and other nerdy stuff like movies.
Star Cosplay Fitness will have her personal discussions, Japanese culture and recipes like such as how to make an onigiri, and cosplay tutorials.
We are still coming up with content to post about. I will post our channels below if you would like to subscribe to them. If you have any suggestions like us know about them. Thank you guys for reading! Have a great day and remember to STAY HEALTHY!
