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!

Road To Rogue: Youfit Challenge

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!

Road To Rogue Coming Back!

Hello everyone and welcome back to our blog!

Star and I have massive plans this year, and one of them is making a big comeback at Supercon. She asked who I wanted to cosplay and Rogue was such a fail last year. I will try my best this year to do her justice as well as making our other cosplays amazing! This is how I will go by doing this. Each day I will post on the blog about what food I eat because Star hasn’t started right on the blog yet, the exercises we’ve done. If there any anything new I‘ve learned about myself along this journey healthwise. 

You never know yourself fully. You are always learning, and I want to share everything with the rest of you. It’s fitting that this is happening on the 1st of February. It feels good to start anything on the first of a month, even though I would recommend starting when you can. 

Yesterday we found out that our situation at the moment will take longer than expected to work out. So we may be looking at March for when things are settled down. I seriously missed making videos for you guys to watch. I’m taking this time to arrange everything so when it’s time, there will be no stress. Here’s the link to our youtube channel so when we start uploading videos again, you will see it in your subscriptions! Still feels good having a custom URL after hitting 100 subs. 

I want to take the time out to say that if you like everything we are trying to accomplish, please check out our patreon. Your contributions to the site will help us keep FTC inspiring cosplayers and others around the world to live a healthy lifestyle

I recognize so much we can do in the future and I can‘t wait to be able to do them. 2017 was a year of learning and 2018 is a year of action! Thank you guys so much for reading this blog post! Please follow the blog to not miss any of my future Road to Rogue and any other posts. Also, we will be sending out emails about special events, store sales and anything else we are having so please subscribe to our email list.

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!

Things Are Changing In 2018

Hello everyone!

I hope 2018 is treating you well so far. We are starting off this year with moving to a new place. Unfortunately, I won’t be able to create videos for a while unless I do some sort of vlog. Currently, we are looking for a new home but that’s not stopping us from achieving our goals. We’ve been going to the gym consistently this week. We are working on eating healthy because we are trying to save money. We all know that eating healthy is expensive but we are watching ourselves.

While we were moving, my poor phone was broken and couldn’t be used. I’m getting a new one but it won’t be an iPhone. It’s ok though. I need a phone. Things might be rough right now but we know what the endgame is and this makes it easier. Out with the old and in with the new. We aren’t letting this get us down. We know it’s a good thing.

Thank you guys for reading the post. Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!

Not Attending Holiday Matsuri This Year

Hello everyone!

This year we will not be attending Holiday Matsuri aka Holmat this year. It was a hard decision but we decided to save that money towards equipment for the business. If we went, we would’ve spend almost 1k. Some of the money is going towards a savings account for the laser engraver and shirt machine. We decided on a certain amount of money during the month to put towards it.

The money we receive from our patrons will also be transferring to the same savings account. If you would like to put as little as $1 towards our efforts, go to patreon.com/fitnesstocosplay. A BIG thank to those that donated so far! Our goal is to purchase one of these machines by the middle of next year. At least, that’s what I hope lol.

For those attending, please have plenty of fun for us and take a lot of pictures for us to see. I will be staring at them and crying in a corner lol.

 

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

3 Weeks Til Florida Supercon

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!
