Week Two: Why I Chose this Book/Diet and Author Interview
Two weeks ago, in my last post (no sponsored posts last week due to it being #BlackoutTuesday) I promised to keep everyone updated on my progress and benefits of my first week in the Acceleration Phase of my diet. Without further ado, here is my personal experience after my first week and a brief interview of the Always Eat After 7PM author, Joel Marion.Continue reading “Why I chose Always Eat After 7PM and Author Interview”
Week One: Always Eat After 7PM- Why I Chose This Diet
As many of you can probably relate, when the gyms and fitness centers temporarily shut down during the pandemic I was unsure about how I was going to stay as active as before. This month would have been my 2 year anniversary of kickboxing. Kickboxing is my favorite workout that I enjoy the most and not being able to go kickboxing has caused irritability, weight gain, and stress. Instead of dwelling on what I can’t control I decided it’s a perfect time to get serious about shedding some excess weight, increasing my energy and just feeling better in general.Continue reading “Why I Chose This Diet- Always Eat After 7PM”

#girlsjustwannahaveguns💪 Turning my #jigglypuff into #wigglytuff 💖😜it was red carpet night at #iLoveKickboxing and I learned exactly how difficult it was to do burpees in a dress! I’ve definitely gained a lot more strength and endurance from kickboxing (in the beginning I couldn’t even do one pushup, but now I do double classes some nights just for fun like a cute psycho 😅🙃) I’m on track to hitting my goal weight this May🥊🥰❣️ • • • • • • #turningmypuffintotuff #kickboxlikeagirl #ilkbnation #ilkb #kickboxinggirl #redcarpetnight #sequindress #mermaiddress #forever21 #rosegoldgloves #kickboxing #rosegold #iridescentdress #iridescent #fitnessmotivation #newyearnewyou #weightlossjourney #changealife #goalgetter #ilkb #djnight
I started kickboxing atthe end of May in 2018, and it was the best desision ever!
There are so many ways kickboxing at ILKB has changed my life, here are a few:
After I started counting calories combined with exercise I have lost almost 16 pounds since August! I weighed 106 pounds in freshman year of college. After I graduated my metabolism stopped, I was drinking too much, and without proper diet and exercise I weighed over 160 pounds! In August I limited my calorie intake to about 1,360 a day and I set a goal for myself to go to kickboxing at least four times a week.
I’ve been steadily losing 1 – 1.5 pounds a week the healthy way. I may splurge here and there on my calories at parties and special events, I’m only human. I’m not depriving my body of nutrients and I make sure I always feel satisfied after a meal! My realistic goal weight is 120 pounds and at this rate I’ll be there at the latest in May of next year!
I sometimes do double classes back to back. After my first class ever I was so sore that I could barely go up the stairs. I was able to complete my first full Tough Mudder (~10 miles, 20+ obstacles), something I never thought I would ever be able to do. Yes, it took me over four hours but I’m so happy that I finished strong.
After getting the heart-rate monitor I realized that my resting heart-rate was a little high (over 120 bpm). After getting into better shape it has lowered significantly. One lady who checks my heartrate when I donate platelets even said, “be a little more excited, why don’t you”.
Mindfulness and being more aware definitely helps. I work harder with the monitor on because I’m constantly trying to burn more calories than before. It’s very convenient to get the e-mails after every class that give you full workout summary. I’m in constant competition with the person I was the day before.
*Disclaimer this is a screenshot of a better than average class. I don’t burn this many calories everyday I usually burn around 600-700 on average*
It’s basically impossible to leave after class and feel negatively or in a bad mood. I feel so awesome and accomplished after each class because I’m getting closer and closer to my fitness goals! There is such a supportive group of kickboxing instructors and peers at my studio. We’re at different fitness levels with different lifestyles, but we all have a common goal: To be fitter, stronger, happier versions of ourselves!
