Jump Jump....Jump Jump

Good Humpday everyone,

As I was surfing the web this morning I came across these two awesome videos! If you’re tired/bored with your current workout routine, this is a great way to spice things up! I recently purchased a jump rope with the weighted handles and I sat it in a corner and have yet to pick it up again! After seeing these videos I can't wait to try some new tricks and have some fun with my rope!


Work Out Wednesday: Orange & Blue

Orange x Blue

Orange x Blue by classicdaisy featuring juicy couture watches

When I first saw these sneakers, the first thing that came to mind was my pride for my first university: Morgan State. Although, I transferred from there two years ago, my school pride has somehow followed me into the present. I own so much orange and blue paraphernalia! These sneakers would bring a full look together where I can sport my school spirit and still get my workout on. Both colors paired together are so bright, vibrant, and tons of fun! I've never owned a pair of Onisuka Tiger kicks but they sure do look funky enough to fit my edgy style! What do you think of them?

Motivational Monday

Happy Monday ladies! Here's a friendly reminder to always remain focused on your own ambitions, your progress, your growth, and your speed. It's okay to glance at others for inspiration but when you begin comparing your own trials to others it's easy to get lost and forget your very own victories. We are all in this fight together and you must respect your best because it is all of your effort and that's truly all that matters! Don't get caught up on the "I wish I were more like so & so's" because guess what? You are you and that's absolutely amazing.

Guess Who's Back?

Hey ladies! I know you all may have been wondering where I've been? What I've been doing? And most importantly, why has 2bfitfabfierce been neglected. Speaking for myself, I personally owe you all an apology for my lack of posts, motivation, and answers. This summer has been one of the most exhausting ones to date. I got very involved in summer courses and am finally resting for the first time all summer as I gear up for  the start of a full Fall semester this Monday. This summer I lost my cool, I lost my ambition, and I lost my self love for my body. I buried myself in entertaining others and forgot about honoring myself. Honoring my goals and honoring my health. 

In the midst of all my chaos I suffered a 15lb gain in the span of 3 months. Bringing me to 231lbs. That means I gained 5lbs every single month. I can't make any excuses for my behavior during this Summer but I can hold myself accountable for my actions. I am back now and ready to improve my health. I am ready to start anew. 

What am I going to do to fix it? Well, here's my plan. 
12 Ways To Take Back My Weightloss Journey
1.) Dieters Tea - since my food intake has not been the healthiest these past months, I think it is safe to say my body needs a through colon cleanse. I need to flush my body of these toxins ASAP!
2.) Protein Shakes - I am going to start up with my GNC protein shake supplements as a way to boost my metabolism.
3.) Drink Alcoholic Beverages Every Other Week-this Summer I found myself drinking twice a week entertaining friends and family. Liquor packs on the pounds and increases salt intake. Those pretty cocktails are the devil and so hard to avoid in the 21 & over lifestyle.
4.) Grilled Not Fried - This will be my rule for all meats! There's no if and's or buts about it.
5.) Two Snacks A Day - 1 healthy like carrots & dip or sliced strawberries with whip and 1 tasty like cookies or popped chips.
6.) Work Out 4x's a week - Now I know it will take a while to build up my endurance for this but I plan on starting with a 2x's a week minimum for my workouts as my body readjusts to moving again
7.) 8 Glasses of H20 or more - I plan on drinking a cup before I eat a meal and directly after meals
8.) 5-6 Servings of Fruits or Veggies - This has to happen; point, blank, period!
9.) Blogging My Weekly Weigh In's - Blogging really kept me motivated and on track. You all play a huge role in my weight loss success and are more inspirational than you think, thank you.
10.) Meetings, Meetings, Meetings - I like the idea of a weekly recap with a group of women who are doing the same thing as me. Striving for the same goal: being HEALTHY! 
11.) If I Bite It, I Must Write It - Let the church say Amen to that! Accountability is everything on a challenge like this. The only way I can be honest with myself and realistic about my results is by doing this
12.) Being Patient - It's so hard to become frustrated and want to seek immediate results which is one of the reasons why it was so easy for me to go astray but I must work on this. Success takes time to grow.

And from this day I solemnly swear to:

I now ask for you all to please bear with me as I reclaim my motivation and persistence on this roller coaster journey. We fall down but we definitely get right back up! 

Cheers to new beginnings!
