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: Top 3 Reasons to Like Wireless Headphones

Hello everyone!

I hope your weekend was amazing. I took the time to relax is they are my rest days lol. Today I wanted to talk about the difference between regular headphones and wireless ones. I wanted to make this post to explain the reason why the wireless headphones are a great workout tool and, in my experience, is a necessity.

I use to look at other people with wireless headphones and thought, look at them being fancy with their expensive headphones. The fact that you can get a set for under $20 is recent. They were VERY expensive when they first came out. Everything is when it’s a new technology right? 

Last year, when I took YouTube seriously, I wanted to do a video about two sets of inexpensive wireless headphones. I found one at Target for $10, not joking, and another set at Michael’s for $18. I wasn’t able to do the video but FYI I love the set at Michael’s. I use them every time I visit the gym. 

Once I started to use them regularly, I saw a huge advantage of using them. First and the most obvious, no wires! I can’t count how many times my hand or arm hit the cord and either the buds were snatched out of my ears or my phone hit the floor. It was so annoying! Not only that but I would have to put the phone in my sports bra or inside my pants because there were, of course, attached.

Second, I can put my phone anywhere. Since there is no cord, I wouldn’t have to worry about where I placed my phone. I can put it on the floor beside me or in the machine water bottle holder. When I first realized this, it blew my mind. It felt so good doing workouts with free weights and knowing the phone can be in front of me on the floor and I can still hear the music. 

Third, I won’t have to use my phone to change the song or the volume. With the controls being on the headphones, I can press one button. When I used the regular ones, I had to stop what I was doing, take out my phone and do it from there. For me, it kills my vibe. 

I hoped this helped the people who were thinking about getting them. You don’t have to pay a high price. You can go to your local Walgreen, Target, Michael’s, anywhere and get a great set of headphones with good sound quality.

Thank you so much for reading my post. 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.


Breakfast: Eggs and coffee

Lunch: Rx Bar and Kevita drink

Road To Rogue Day 11

Hello,, everyone!

Sorry, it’s been a while since I last updated because of these past two weeks Star and I have had a bad cold. She was first and then transferred it to me lol. She was having a fever and I was really sneezing and coughing all over the place and I didn’t want to transfer to anyone else.

SO today I’m hoping to go to the gym today at 6. I’ll be walking to the gym because Star is at work with the car. I don’t mind. Extra cardio! I’m also going back on my intermittent fasting because I’ve learned that eating through the day, my body doesn’t like. It’s like I’m forcing my body to eat. For those of you that don’t know what intermittent fasting is, the definition below.

Intermittent fasting (IF) is a term for an eating pattern that cycles between periods of fasting and eating.

  • The 16/8 Method: Also called the Leangains protocol, it involves skipping breakfast and restricting your daily eating period to 8 hours, for example from 1 pm to 9 pm. Then you “fast” for 16 hours in between.

The only thing I have in the morning is coffee which let’s admit it, COFFEE IS LIFE. Anyway, thank you to everyone that’s reading so far. Hopefully, I will not be getting sick again. But that’s life, you know? Today I’m vlogging for my personal channel, Tsuki Nerdy Fitness so subscribe to see those videos!

Thank you for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow. Remember to Stay Healthy!

Road To Rogue Day 10

Hello everyone,

Day 2 of Lee Labrada’s 12-Week Lean Body Trainer and my arms feels as if they are about the fall off. I love it though! I hope I can continue on it this time around and complete the entire plan. Also, to help me with my transformation, I’ve decided to go without refined sugars. That means no bars, sugar in my coffee, candy, and other things that have that type of sugar in it. I will do a blog post later on about the difference between refined and unrefined sugar.

Anyway! Today at work, my boss and a couple of coworkers weight themselves again. I didn’t because I know I had breakfast. I normally weigh myself after I use the bathroom in the morning. I know it’s not good to weigh yourself very morning but I love seeing the fluctuations every morning. This helps me know what works with my body and what doesn’t. If I eat something not good, my body will tell me the next morning. Don’t ask how I know, I just do lol. People, who do this understands right?

Like I said, today was Day 2 of Lee Labrada’s 12-Week Lean Body Trainer and I’m so happy that it was over! I almost couldn’t raise my arms to take my shirt off lol. I haven’t worked out like that in a while. It felt really good and I can’t wait for weeks to come. Star is preparing dinner for the rest of the week so get ready for some epic pictures!

Thank you guys for reading and I’ll you later. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!

Road To Rogue Day 9

Hello everyone,

Happy Monday! During the weekend I, of course, binged on popcorn lol. Today at work my boss wanted to do a contest with everyone at work. We all weighed ourselves and I’m 143. When this ends, who knows when that will be, the loser is supposed to buy everyone lunch. WELL, I’m broke all the time because my cut in hours so you know I’m going to be trying hard to lose weight. Anyway, this will help me with my Road to Rogue so I’m not complaining lol.

Road To Rogue Day 8

Hello, everyone!

Happy hump day! Today I was good with calories until I started eating Star’s popcorn. I swear I can’t resist! Unfortunately, It’s too late to go to the gym because Star is going to do her sisters hair tonight or else I would’ve gone after I’ve done this post. Since our gym close at 12 AM then we can go at 10 or 11.

I’m more of a night owl anyway. I do wish I could go to the gym during the day though because I never know what will happen after I get off of work. Today we had dinner instead of going to the gym right after work. What I thought would happen, happened and we did not go to the gym because as we are sitting here eating dinner, we got busy doing other things.

Star went to go make more popcorn for the Farmer’s Markets this weekend, hence why I said I went downhill at the end of the night lol. But that’s ok! So, for now, I’m 1/7 on gym days but I’m determined. I count Monday as the beginning of my week instead of Sunday just so you know.

I have more to say but I won’t make this an extra long post so I’ll leave it here. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!


Breakfast: Coffee and Cafe Mocha Creamer

Lunch: Pistachios and Chobani Flip Banana and Chocolate yogurt

Snack: 2 Small powdered donuts (A coworker gave me a pack to try because he said they came from Mexico. They remind me of the little Debbie powdered donuts but with less powder. Still good though!)

Dinner: Fish with salad and pita. (Below is a picture of a past plate because I forgot to take a picture of tonight’s plate lol)

Dessert: Lots and LOTS of different popcorn lol. Classic Movie, Ambrosia, and Tiramisu. (If you want to see different pictures of the flavors, let me know.)

If you guys wanted Star’s recipes for her plates, let me know. I will post them in the recipe section on the blog.

Road To Rogue Day 7

Hello, everyone! When I skip days, I’ll just continue on the next day.

When I skip days, I’ll just continue on the next day. So! Today is Day 7, not really but yeah, and I think I did well today! I stayed within my calorie goal and I went to the gym! I might want to upload blogs at night because at least I will know how I did through the day instead of guessing lol.

We went to the gym after work and I think that’s what we will be doing for now on. When we eat dinner, we don’t want to move afterward because the day has wined down on us and we feel exhausted. So going before we go home to eat dinner will help a lot. Let me know if you would like to see me post Road to Rogue as a vlog on my blog Tsuki Nerdy Fitness. I’m thinking about doing it.

This week will be the cardio week because, with mother nature knocking at my door and other items at the moment, I feel like I need to concentrate more on burning calories than weight training. I will be trying to binge on the water this week, more than normal to help with the amount of water I will loose. I want to be at 135-130 at the end of the month and I hope that it can be done. If not, it’s not the end of the world. I will be starting a countdown for Supercon to help get my butt in gear!

For those who are in South Florida that reads my blog, let me know if you are going to Supercon so we can do a meetup type of thing. I would love to meet new people!

Thanks for reading and I will see you guys tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!


Breakfast: Coffee with Soymilk

Lunch: Pistachios and 3 Reese Cups (a friend gave me those and if I didn’t have them, I would be WAY under my calorie goal. I don’t do it on purpose, it just happens.)

Dinner: 2 Potato and Vegetable Samosa and a Peanut Butter and Chocolate Quest bar.
