Project: GoFitness

Let's start a project. Let's get fit.

Food is everything.

9. August 2014

Ahh, my little blogbaby. I missed this blog but I’ve just been super active on my main. 

Anyway. I’m down about 25lbs this year. 

I know the secret. Wanna know the secret? I’ve been trying for like 5 years to lose weight and this is the first time I actually have.

WHOA BRO. Food? Really? Yup. Eat healthy. Eat as much as you want, as long as its healthy.

Educate yourself. Food you might think is healthy might not be. 

Pro-tip: fruits and vegetables. Eat em. Be careful with animal products. 

It’s all about food. Food is everything.

Also, surround yourself with what you want to be.

Also also, ALWAYS BE prepared, this means a lot of tupperware. 

Come on bros :)

Omg, I disappeared, wth LOLOL.

So it really has been a very long time since I posted anything. It’s been pretty crazy on my end. However, I did not fall of the wagon. Actually, I’ve been riding the wagon pretty hardcore (?). 

GUYS! I’ve lost at least 10 pounds since September. This is unreal because I haven’t lost weight since I started working out when I was 12 (I’m 19 now). Not only have I lost weight, but I’m at 191lbs. I’m almost out of the 190’s. I haven’t seen the 180’s since freshman year of HS at the latest. It’s going to be unreal when I hit those 180s. I’m actually motivated.

I’ve gotten so serious. I did shaytober, where I ran 60 miles in October and that really kicked my ass into gear. I upped my running from doing 1-2 miles, from doing 3-5 miles + lifting at least 4 times a week.

I started counting calories on the app myfitnesspal. I only started to do it to see where I was really at with the whole eating thing. I was eating too many calories. I counted calories regularly through October and November, but I stopped because I wasn’t eating food that could be easily counted. I do it every now and then but not too much. I’m starting to count again though really soon. 

I like going to the gym, I like seeing my body change, I like feeling better and stronger.

If none of you have cared what I’ve been posting about within the past 2 years, NOW IS THE TIME. Things are happening people. 

If you’re a fitblr, like this or reblog and I’ll check your blog out. 

Day uno. (The start-over).

3. December 2012

I’m considering this a start over. I fell off the wagon and got ran over. So here is day one. Again.
I’m really disappointed in myself. I was getting to the point where running 2 miles was getting easy for me. If I went out right now, a mile would be tough.
My gym went out of business, it’s been cold out, I’ve been busy with school and work, and even if I’m not at school or work, I’m exhausted. But those are all excuses.

This time is going to be slightly different. I was focusing on running. I love running, in a love-hate kind of way. However, I want to join the YMCA. If, for some reason, you don’t know what that is, it’s like a gym/pool/sport center. There are a lot of activities to do there. From the website, I will have access to:

  • Seven indoor and two outdoor pools
  • Ten fitness centers with new, state-of-the-art equipment
  • Nine gyms
  • Climbing wall
  • Five indoor walking/jogging tracks
  • Tennis, racquetball and volleyball courts

So here is what my new plan is going to be.

  1. Of course, choose the healthier choices when eating.
  2. Running 1-2 days a week
  3. Swimming one day a week
  4. Spinning one day a week
  5. Maybe Raquetball one day a week?
  6. Strength training one day a week (push ups, pull ups, weights…)
  7. One free day to do whatever exercise I want (Probably running outside because I love it, it makes me feel healthier more than anything.)
  8. I also really like climbing, but I like bouldering (not really belaying), so I will probably climb the wall a few days a week so that when I start bouldering in the summer I will have strength.

I was weighing in once a month so that I didn’t become obsessed with the scale, but I will be starting to weigh in every Monday morning, starting today.

My official first weigh in: 202.0 lbs

So then I’m switching it up and staying active throughout the week. Let me know what you think of this… it sounds grand to me.


SHAYTEMBER. Join us :)

Anyone else a SUPER big supporter of shaycarl/shaytards? I am, have been for a while, and this makes me even more. Seriously, watch it! Fitblrs/Runners/ and People who want to lose weight. He lost over 100lbs, ran 2 marathons and ran 1 half marathon.

Do you guys know how good it feels? After eating so bad the past few weeks, eating healthy the past 2 days feel amazing. Why don’t I do this all of the time?

21. August 2012

Goal: Jog 3 miles on the treadmill by the end of September.
Goal: Get into the 180’s by the October 1st weigh in
Goal: Workout 5 times a week

I actually started college and got a job so these goals might be a little harder to reach. One step at a time!

I also initiated my new “diet”. It is a 2% raw diet. That’s sarcastic, but it’s really loose usage of “raw”. Fruits, vegetables, wheat bread, chicken and turkey (not lunch meat, the ones I have to cook myself ha), brown rice, whole wheat pasta, nuts, water, 100% pure juice - Naked Juice, Skim milk, some cereal (Cheerios, life…the better choices of cereal) CHEATS: cheese (little amounts), sauces/condiments.

As you can see, it really can’t be counted as “raw”. I will be allowing myself one free day, Saturday, because that’s the day I’m with my dad or out with friends. This isn’t a day to go crazy, but allow myself any dinner I’d like and probably a dessert.

Holy Crap, where I have I been?

31. July 2012

Ahh I fell off the wagon for about 2 weeks this month. It’s the summer and It was my birthday (Cake :(. Not to mention, I got a car, so I’ve been doing a whole lot of crap. I’ve been eating junk and not working out. I feel as big as when I started. Two days ago, I jogged .5 miles. I felt horrible and I accidently brought the bad head phones that shock my ears! Today, however, I jogged a little over a mile. I’m going to get up to 1.5 miles again this week and then 2 miles next week. I dropped my phone on the treadmill today, and then almost fell off when I tried picking it up… haha I’m sure it was quite the sight. Anyway, I’m still here, and I’m still dedicated as of now!

I jogged a 1.5 today.

8. July 2012

So I have been working out. Trying to keep with my schedule, but it’s been SOOOO hot where I live, like 95 degrees +, so it’s hard to jog outside. I’ve been trying to make it to the gym, but I don’t drive yet, so I have to find rides. Luckily I can drive in 12 days! WOOO. WORK OUT ALL OF THE TIME! Here’s my calendar to keep track of everything, the circles are completed work outs. Top is June, bottom is July!

Let’s be honest.

15. June 2012

I’m not going to be posting everyday like I was.


I will be getting on here and reblogging things and I will post when something significant happens.

I’m sad to say that I have fallen off of the health kick for this past month. HOWEVER, It is all beginning now again. I am going to start waking up and jogging every morning. I would like to run my own 5ks twice a month because I think it will help me work up since I’ve only been jogging about the same lengths recently. I need to push myself a little harder. I also want to start biking, that would be fun. I’m trying to save my joints a little. And, I want to attend some classes at my gym. Healthy eating! I’m going to try to make an all HEALTHY recipe book full of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack recipes/ideas. I will try them first, and if I like them I will throw them in a sheet protector and then into a binder. So, if you have any good healthy recipes, send them my way!


June 1st weigh in.

1. June 2012

197.2 lbs. YAY I lost .2

I’m not even mad, I probably worked out 13 days this month and I ate tons of ice cream since it’s coming of summer.

I’m back on track baby!

Workout #76 - 5/31/12

31. May 2012

Jogged a mile today in 11:40 which is faster than normal for me. Time to get serious again. I am going to Seattle on Monday to see my uncle who is big into health and I’m really excited. I think he and I are a lot alike. Yay for healthiness and getting back on track.

Heard the best thing ever today.

30. April 2012

Saw a friend that I havent really seen in a year, and after talking about prom and whatnot, she said

"You are really skinny now…"

and I was like

"Oh really? I’ve been running!"

and that’s it. I don’t know why she said I was really skinny, because I am definitely still over weight, but it’s nice to know that people are noticing the difference!

Tomorrow is a weigh-in

30. April 2012

O.o, wow, that pretty much did a sneak attack.

I have a few Dailies to post…

21. April 2012

BUT, I just wanted to say that I’m running/walking my first 5k tomorrow! I’m going to try to jog at least 2 miles of it, and then maybe I will have to walk some, but I want to finish jogging. I have about a week until my next weigh in so… AND I was going to eat really healthy today so I’m light for the race, but I ate SO BAD today, so lets hope it doesnt effect me too bad.

Guess who is going vegetarian?

7. April 2012

This girl. Until June 1st. I really need to exercise and focus on my diet. The point of this is to cut out the fatty foods and eat way more fruits and vegetables. I NEED TO FOCUS. I need to stop with these endless splurges and what not. I’m going to gain all of my weight back. So here it goes, seriousness.
