Today I did what I should have did last week. WRITE DOWN MY GET HEALTHY GOALS.
We’re in week #2 of the NIKE Women’s Training Challengeand I will openly admit that I’m not using this app to it’s fullest. Despite the fact that every single thing is laid out for me. I am able to record exactly what workouts I did and for how long. I even get rewarded with bonus workouts from the celebrity trainers Jeanette Jenkins & Ary Nunez, healthy recipes, and bragging rights that post directly to your Facebook page. But it’s so easy say you’ll start on Wednesday and look up and another Wednesday is at our feet. So I am smacking my hand now and lugging myself to the gym tonight (follow me on Twitter and keep me in check, please!)
After my getting my eating habits in check I began working out on the regular. I realized that just doing my Zumba workouts and a little Cardio 3x’s a week isn’t enough. Plus, my gym is filled with extra buff health nuts which kinda leaves fat ole me a little intimidated. But almost like clockwork, I found another healthy program to participate in.
When I originally started doing the “Get Fit Friday” and “Workout Wednesday” posts I just wanted to share tips from a few of my workout and healthy eating buddies. I quickly realized that I was not alone in my journey for a healthier me.
Recently I ran into curvy diva, Kionne. I’ve known Kionne for some time through modeling and being in the entertainment scene in Baltimore. I was super surprised when I barely recognized who she was. Her story was extremely inspiring and more importantly – relatable.
She shares with us how she lost 55 lbs in 7 months and gives a few tips on how you can too!
Do you ever find yourself working out, then looking up and an hour has passed? You have not even broken a sweat? NO MORE! Bring a stopwatch. Pick 3 exercises and give yourself 12-15 minutes to complete them as quickly as possible on a rotation (ie. 7 reps of each exercise for the allotted time). You will amaze yourself at just how determined you will become and how hard you will work. Stop wasting hours and leaving with that unwavering feeling that something is missing. The stopwatch is the key!
Let me start by saying I am totally not that fat girl. The one who loves every inch of her love handles and probably could stand to wear a size bigger. Nope … I am the opposite. I’ve always been a curvy girl and I do LOVE my curves BUT I’ve ALWAYS been weight conscious. The smallest I have ever been was a size 10 and I looked like I had THE BUG. You know that big bug that Magic Johnson is filled of but it ain’t so magical.
Boy oh boy it’s been a crazy week in Fashion. First Tom Ford says American’s are too fat but the Chinese are ok, Jennifer Lopez was scrutinized for her recent Emilio Pucci choice, and now TopShop is under fire for their recent summer sale advertisement. Continue reading →
