TOP: Working out 7 days a week, 2 hour long workouts, not drinking water, binging and purging on unhealthy foods part of the time, and the other times restricting (400-900 cals daily) and an extremely unhealthy mind to match.
BOTTOM: Strength training workouts 5 times a week, running 3-4 times a week, 40-60 minute workouts, drinking lots of water, 5 balanced meals a day (1800~ cals daily), and a healthy positive mind.
Recovery makes a world of a difference, not just in your body though. In every other aspect of life too.
This video is a plea for help. After losing 200lbs, I’m currently working on creating a pilot for a TV show, where I travel the world finding new forms of fitness that will inspire and motivate people to get moving. I truly believe that in a world full of heart disease, diabetes, and morbid obesity, fitness and weight loss are key players in abolishing this epidemic, and a project like this could make a big difference in many people’s lives. I’m currently entered into a $10,000 contest hosted by Kindsnacks that ends on Feb 28, 2014 and this contest could completely fund the pilot episode.The challenge is that I’m one person up against some big organizations, and that’s where you come in. All I need is for people to vote and spread the word in order for this project to succeed. So I ask you, please follow click the link below, hit the “vote with a kind act” button, and share this video and the voting page. With your partnership, this TV show truly could happen. Thank you for your support.
Voting Instructions if needed: By clicking the link above you will be taken to my kindsnacks voting page. Once there select “Vote with a kind act”, it will ask you to log into Facebook. Follow every request that it prompts you with (there’s only about 3). If every prompt and request is not completed, the vote won’t count. Please also refresh the page to make sure the vote went through.

This month’s workout plan! I included a printable workout tracker to help you stay focused, motivated, and to see your progress! To use it just count your reps and record them each time you exercise. By the end of the month you’ll be able to see gains in both strength and stamina (for exercises that are a minute long hold just record how many breaks you take). I also included a spot to give a check mark for days when you stretch and days when you drink enough water! Finally there’s the calendar at the top to record how much cardio you do (and what type) daily!
This plan is designed to really keep you motivated. You have a different workout each day of the week so it never gets boring and every strength move is one you can do from home- no gym necessary! I also included a short list of just some of the many ways you can get cardio in!
Since I’m only a few weeks away from my first bridal fitting (eep!) I’ll be doing this plan along with you! I’ll be posting my progress and my own chart each week. Plan on joining in? Post your chart & progress and tag it piecesinprogress! Each week I’ll give a shoutout to all my February fitties!
ps- Exercise is only one part of a healthy lifestyle so make sure you’re eating a healthy, nutritious diet along with this plan! Looking for some meal plan inspiration? Check out my meal plans page and the weekly meal plans I’ll be posting all month! :)
