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!

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!

Setback But Not Giving Up

vegeta-goku_00425454

Hello everyone,

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.

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.
