Last week I started a new workout plan and for the past two weeks, I‘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 look, I‘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!
So far here is my schedule this week. It might change because you know life. LOL.
8pm – 9pm – Strength Training
8pm – 9pm – Cardio
8pm – 9pm – Strength Training
8pm – 9pm – Cardio
8pm – 9pm – Strength Training
Let me know what your schedules are in the comments! Remember to stay healthy and have a great day!
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!
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.
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!
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.
Yesterday, I picked up my cousin from the airport and we hung out for a while catching up. I haven’t seen him in more than… maybe 10 years? We are close so seeing him again was great. He was supposed to land at 2 but his flight was delayed by 2 hours. Sucks right? So when I left him at the hotel, it was 6, I think. By this time I was REALLY hungry. I didn’t have much for lunch. I was going to have the chili but I wanted a slice of banana nut bread instead with an aloe drink.For Breakfast, I did have my smoothie. When I was leaving him, I craved pizza. So I ordered the Works from Papa Johns. They have a 40% off coupon on retailmenot.com right now, if you would like to order for yourself lol.

Just don’t go overboard and eat the entire pizza lol. I had two slices and two bread sticks.
As for the gym, we weren’t able to go because of picking up my cousin and going to see The Fate Of The Furious. The movie was great. I would definitely see it again. Thanks to a friend of ours, are able to see some movies as soon as they come out Thursday night. I didn’t think that still happened. But I will tell you one thing, watching a movie in a not so crowded theater is amazing. The downfall is going to bed after 12 but that’s worth it.
Thank you for reading and I will see you guys tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!
Today’s Planned Meals
Lunch: Star’s Green Tea Popcorn (Testing out her new flavor. Yum)
Dinner: Leftover Pizza
Exercise: Gym (weightlifting and elliptical)
Sorry I haven’t updated in a couple of days. I’ve been concentrating on making perlers for Outcon next month and I’ve been doing so pretty big pieces.
I’m making sure I have some Zelda ones for sell because a lot of people were asking for them at Hero Hype. If you would like to purchase some perler art, I have some already available on our facebook page shop here. I will still upload a post about that convention.
So how have I been doing? Great! I’ve gone to the gym once this week so far and I’ve been trying to stay within my calorie goal. My little problem right now is Star’s popcorn. It’s so delicious! She sold at two farmer’s markets last weekend and have some leftover. Now I’m like having a couple of small bags as a snack. If you guys are in the Plantation or Tamarac area in Florida, come by and get a tasty treat from Star’s, Poppin Around The World tent at the Farmer’s markets in the area!
Today, my band of my Fitbit broke. Unfortunately, I can’t get a new one so I will have to deal with it in my pocket. 😦 I will have to buy one either Friday when I get paid for next week. I’ve never changed my band before so this will be a new experience. I’ll have to purchase another sports band or find one that’s more durable. I think 6 months is a long time. Products nowadays are made to be perishable. I’m happy that the FitBit itself isn’t damaged.
Coffee and Soymilk
Chilli Soup with water
Fish, Salad, and Pita bread (We’ve been having this consistently for the past two days and I can’t get enough!)
Anyways, thank you guys for reading and I’ll see you next time! Remember to STAY HEALTHY!
