I hope this turns into something good. Im going to start this blog and write a few times a week, covering things from workouts, to recipes, to healthy living. 6 weeks ago I started my weight loss/fit journey. I will get into that in a few.
I recently found a FB site called Fit Approach. I encourage you all to 'like' them on Facebook.
They are a fairly new organization based out of Cali, who are trying to get the word out about healthy living. I have been accepted by them to be a Sweat Pink Ambassador their Sweat Pink program. Basically, my job is to motivate, educate and live the Sweat Pink lifestyle. I will be receiving some Sweat Pink gear in the mail soon which will include some Sweat Pink shoe laces. They believe that if you look and feel cute during a workout you may be more motivated. So I may do some sort of give away on my FB page once I get them. So you'll hear me say Im going to Sweat Pink, or use that term alot..thats what its all about. :) And what girl wouldnt wanna sweat pink? Those who know me know I enjoy some pink in my life.
Okay so now onto my journey so far. 6 weeks ago I decided to change my life and I can tell you I havent regretted a minute of it. Nothing in particular happened to me to want to do this..Ive tried many many times to start to work out and get healthy but I never stuck with it. 6 weeks ago I just deicded it was time. YOU have to be ready to change. No one else can change you. I am not ready to share my starting weight yet, its really hard to put yourself out there like that. With dropping weight so quickly and living healthy you gain your confidence back, but Im not THAT confident yet. I will though, I promise.
Thus far, I have lost 15.5 pounds. The weight has come off pretty quickly and it will at first. I havent hit my plateau yet and dont expect to for awhile. My workout schedule basically looks like 6 days of cardio, typically about an hour. I started the Couch to 5K running program but having not run alot before this I had a little bit of an ankle injury week 5, so I spent last week kicking butt on the EFX elliptical trainer. I plan on giving it another week or so and then starting to run again. I lift weights about 4 times a week. I cannot stress enough how important lifting weights are. I plan on posting about that in a seperate post this week at some point. Lifting some sort of weight a few times a week on top of cardio is very very important. Even if its for 30 minutes after cardio. I like to get my cardio done first because it takes alot of my energy. I do take a preworkout supplement..thats a topic for another day as well. Just giving y'all an overview.
So, I hope y'all will follow me, that I can inspire you, and I can impact you in some way. AND I will be posting about little workouts you can do during the day, or at home at night..for those who say their too busy. Also this blog wont just be about exercise, it will be about putting healthy things into your body as well. I will leave you with a challenge, take 1 soda, juice, energy drink, whatever it may be, and supplement it with a bottle of water. Just 1, you can do it. :)
I'll be posting again tomorrow night.
