Five Star Chick Body

I have gained 30lbs in the past 6 years. Not because I have beautiful children running around, but because when I moved to Baltimore to start my teaching career I was introduced to their famous “CHICKEN BOX.” Since I was the youngest in my team of older women, I was told a few times out the week “IF YOU FLY I’LL BUY.” My greedy ass couldn’t let a free chicken box go to waste, so I walked when I had the time and drove when I didn’t across the street to get a chicken box. Also, 4 yrs ago, I met my man. The first year of our relationship we ate out and went to the bar 4-6 days a week. Needless to say alcohol + liquor + no exercise + chicken boxes or other fast food for lunch = RealGirlNRealLife with an extra 30 pounds.

I always had a perfect shape in high school and college; 36-24-36: 36 bust, 24 waist, and 36 hips. I always told myself if I couldn’t tie a bandana around my waist as a belt, I would lose weight. Here I am 4 years late not able to tie one around my waist. Also I’m about to be 30. I don’t have any kids besides my beautiful pitbulls. I want to be fit and toned and wear a tight shirt without my love handles and boobs hanging out. Now, don’t get me wrong, there isn’t anything wrong with being a thick girl or being a big girl, but for my self-esteem, self-confidence, self-acceptance, and happiness I’m not comfortable with it. I want to be HAPPY!!!!!!!!! That’s all I want out of life and I am determined to be HAPPY no matter what!

With that being said, I signed up to be a BeachBody Coach with the company BeachBody, that produces workout videos such as Slim in 6, Insanity, P90X, Turbo Fire, just to name a few. I signed up because I know that there are tons of women out here in the world like myself that wants to find happiness and be physically fit but are afraid to find it and do it or don’t know how. There are so many fad diets out here. Beachbody is about a lifestyle change.

I started Insanity this year. Shawn T said in his motivation speech to “Dig Deeper.”  With me digging deeper, I realize that I need to dig deeper within myself. I did successfully lose 10lbs and 10 inches, but I didn’t apply myself the way I should have. So I’m doing Slim in 6, so I can slim down and lose some weight, then I plan on doing Insanity over, so I can build some muscle. I ordered Slim in 6 yesterday and waiting for its arrival. But I have been walking at least 1.5 miles daily with my dogs until. I also plan on taking pole and erotic dance classes soon….but will keep ya posted.

So once Slim in 6 arrives, I will write daily about my workout experience, if I cheated or not on the food plan, and share tips and recipes for your road to being physically fit!
