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!

Road To Rogue: Battling With Constipation, Increasing Calorie Intake, and Shortcut to Shred Program

Hello everyone!

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.

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!

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.

Run Otaku Run Year Challenge – Week 15 Day 2

wand_of_fortune_388253

Mondays seems to be the days we can DEFINITELY go to the gym and not have to worry about what we have to do afterwards. So yesterday, we walked into the gym and say that they were going to start cycling class. We asked them when and they said today and you’ll need to sign up at 6:30. We went to go do some strength training and then came back at 6:00 right to beat the possible rush and they said that it had to be 6:30 on the dot. Fine! So we went to go exercise some more and came back at 6:25. People were lining up but we were able to sign up. What they didn’t tell us was that the class was at 7:30. VERY important information.

So we went to do circuit since we had to wait 30 minutes. Ten minutes before class started, we decided to leave circuit so we can get a bike. As we walked, a girl stopped us and asked about our shirts. I had our logo printed on shirts and we wore them as our gym shirts. She asked if it was a group and that she’s very interested. We told her about it and she was very excited. She said that she wanted to be a part of it. That’s great!

After we talked to her, we went to our class with 4 minutes to spare. Our instructor was a man, gay (not that it matters) and totally hilarious. He had us laughing the entire workout. He made it so fun and let everyone know that they can do it at their own pace. Good to know.

Suta was a freaking star! She looked amazing. She said that she loved doing cycling class and it showed! I, on the other had, well, I don’t know I looked. A lady said I looked awesome but I don’t know. That’s my second cycling class ever. I enjoyed it. When he said that you was going to sweat, he was kidding! OMG I had sweat dripping off me and I’ve never had that done before for a workout. I’ll definitely start doing cycling classes every Monday.

Health Benefits of Almond Milk

I love having unsweetened vanilla almond milk with my coffee and cereal. I haven’t drunken regular milk in years. Recently I have been drinking a lot more than usual and I started thinking about the health benefits of it which I didn’t know what they were. So I’m sharing with you guys what I found out.

  • Helps with blood pressure
  • Best alternative for people who can’t have soy milk and regular milk
  • Because almonds has low to no cholesterol, it’s better for the heart. It will help prevent heart disease.
  • It helps build muscles because it has a good amount of protein and Riboflavin, a form of vitamin B.
  • There’s calcium that helps with strong and healthy bones
  • It has vitamin E that will keep your skin healthy
  • If your baby won’t drink breast milk, almond milk is a great substitute because it contains similar vitamins and minerals.

That’s so awesome right? I’m been very interested in knowing what the things I eat and drink are doing to help my body live long. If you know anything else about almond milk or even almonds for that matter, don’t be shy and share! I would love to share what you know. The more knowledge we share, the better we will be.
