2015 Goals + A Giveaway!

Hey FitFlyMamas

I wanted to share a few of my 2015 goals with you. My good friend posted a 15 for 2015 on her FB page and it got me thinking I should do the same. I’m not big on resolutions because whenever I’ve made one in the past I either forget about it or just didn’t complete the task. I have however, done a good job of completing the goals I’ve made for myself. It could just be a thing I have with word choice. 🙂 So, this year I want to make a list of my fitness goals (and 1 personal) that I want to accomplish. It’s not near 15 but it’s 5 strong goals.

1) Finish a Half Marathon

2) Become a Fit4Mom Body Back Instructor

3) Get my CPR Certification

4) Run more Races

5) Spontaneous Family Fun 🙂

… And now for the giveaway! I’m super excited to help one of you achieve your fitness goals this year. I’ve teamed up with SweatPink to giveaway 1 Free Month of Gigabody.

If you like Zumba or dance cardio workouts then you’ll enjoy Sweating Sexy and Body Boom Club. I like kickboxing, so I enjoyed the Take 20! Cardio Kickboxing workouts and the 30 Minutes to Fitness TLC Workout 2, looks like a good one as well.

  • Different types of workouts from cardio to strength and yoga
  • Short on time – 10 – 60 minute workouts are available
  • 4 levels
  • Workout plans to help you stay on track

Dislikes:

I don’t really have any major dislikes, other than, I thought the Body Boom video was a bit one-takish. Like they only had one take to do the video and any mistakes made they just rolled with it. 🙂

All-in-all I think Gigabody is a fun an easy way to add fitness into your busy schedule. You’re already on your laptop, just login and pick a workout and get moving. 🙂

That Moment When …

Well it happened. Earlier this evening I walked into a clothing store happy and confident and I walked out DETERMINED.

You might be wondering how it’s even possible, to walk out of a store determined. Here’s what happened:

I needed some new pieces to add to my wardrobe for my new job. I picked up a few blazers, cardigans and sweaters to pair with my jeans and headed to the fitting room. And then it happened… I struggled to put the blazer on. It was tight in the arms and didn’t zipper. SMH ARE YOU SERIOUS! It’s a Large. I immediately thought, this blazer must be cut small. I proceeded to try on the other blazer. And the struggle continued. WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING RIGHT NOW! I grabbed the clothes put them back on the racks and picked up larger sizes. The larger sizes fit well. I went to the counter purchased the clothes and walked out the store DETERMINED to get back to a size that I really feel confident in – not this false sense of confidence I’ve been walking around with.

I needed that wake up call. I needed the shock and to really see myself. I don’t know about you guys but I for the most part see myself in a size 8/10 on a regular basis and it’s not until I see myself in a picture that I’m like ARE YOU SERIOUS. Yes, I know I’m 7 months postpartum but I saw myself further a long than this. But I don’t know why because it’s not like I have truly been consistent with my workouts and my “cheat day” has turned into a “cheat couple of days” and “cheat weeks”. When I really haven’t EARNED a cheat day at all. I haven’t put in the hard work or the time to deserve a cheat day.

I’m over – starting over. Making my priority to get in a workout at minimum 3x a week. I have to become consistent and take my health and weight loss seriously.

It’s a lifestyle and I have to really live it.

FFM90Day Update

We are already at week 3 of the #FFM90Day Challenge and I must admit I have been struggling.  I started out strong and then at about week 2 I began to fall off track.  I have been pretty consistent (minus week 2) with my workouts but my eating has been out of control.  A lot of emotional eating has taken place and with the holiday and long weekend that didn’t help either.  So, on the 2nd I recommitted myself and I am determined to get my butt in gear. 🙂

20day till 30 day

I know I may not see a huge change on day 30, but days 60 and 90 will be amazing.

I know I have to do this because over the last month my Dr. has told me that I’m border line pre-diabetic and she’d like to put me on a second med for my headaches (which she thinks are weight/stress related).  So, I have no choice at this point.  No More Excuses!!!

Keep up the good work and know that you can do it.

FFM90Day Challenge: Check-in

So, we are in the 2nd week of the challenge and I must say I’m feeling great! This morning instead of my usual Zumba Rush workout I switched to Mel B’s total body workout. I’m hoping I can stick with this DVD for the remainder of September and maybe just do Zumba on the weekends. My plan is, since Mel’s video has a toning/weight section this will allow me to add lean muscle which will help me burn more fat cells. DIE FAT CELLS DIE! 🙂

September Goals: 

  • Drop 3 lbs
  • Make it thru Mel B’s cardio section 🙂 it’s not easy
  • Add more veggies to my diet
  • Start thinking of healthy Halloween snack options 🙂

Can’t wait to share my progress! Keep posting pictures and comments on FB, Twitter and Instagram @FitFlyMamas #FFM90Days.
