Fitness Update and My Favorite Posts

11th March 2013

girl-919020_1920Hello everyone. I wanted to give a little update on how I’m doing. I am currently on a fitness plan that I received from one of my favorite Instagrammers.

She made me a workout and nutrition plan that I’ve been on for 3 weeks now. I have been falling off the plan and am currently trying my hardest to get back on. I eat 5 meals a day and workout AM and PM. I was doing amazing the first week and slowly started doing less each week. But now I’m back and giving it 110%!

I am going on a trip to St. Thomas for my birthday so I’m trying extra harder to whip back into great shape. I have learned and realized this past month that I’m ridiculously hard on myself and what I look like. I am currently working on loving my body more and being happy with what I look like. I’ve been doing quite well =)

Oh and Jamie Eason’s husband commented on one of my pictures recently, and that has given me an extra boost! Haha. He commented on a picture of Jamie…but still. Haha.

This week I thought I would share my favorite fitness and food related posts:

  1. Bouncing Back After a Slip Up – Everyone makes fitness related mistakes. It’s very hard to stay on track 100% of the time. Be realistic!
  2. A new spin French toast – This looks WONDERFUL.
  3. 15′s & 5′s Full Body Workout – Here’s a full body workout and a yummy breakfast picture.
  4.  Rawr Goats, Hear Me Roar! – Fitness goals are always important and can help motivate you.
  5. Cookie Butter Brown Sugar Streusel Bars – Yum! Just yum!
  6. Moscato Strawberry Shortcakes – Another great recipe.
  7. I Exercised Yesterday and Didn’t Die
  8. My Favorite Evs: Skinny, Spicy Guacamole
  9. Shannon Falls Hike – Great pictures of their hiking trip.

Journey To Fit

11th January 2013

Welcome to my blog everyone! My name is Alexis, a 19-year-old aspiring Personal Trainer/Fitness Nutrition Specialist.Read further on my “About” page. I also plan on getting my bachelors degree in Exercise Science or Nutrition. I’m from Saint Louis, Missouri USA. I first started on Instagram and now I finally have a blog 🙂

I have gone from obese to unhealthy skinny to overweight and back to the fit and healthy active lifestyle. For the past 5 years, I have always thought the number on the weight scale was all that mattered and in my mind pounds defined me as a person.pineapple-918669_1920

It’s been a long, hard journey to get over my infatuation with losing weight and having a hot body.

 

Over the past year, it has become so much more than that. I realized in the beginning of 2012 I wanted to do this to become healthier overall, not just for the outside but for everything within my body. This was a huge step for me and eventually made me realize I wanted to help others embark on their journey of living a healthy lifestyle.

The online community

You might be alone in this in your personal life, but the people you meet online will become family. At least that’s how it was for me. For awhile I felt alone on my path to becoming healthier and happier but eventually realized how helpful the online community was. How crazy is it to think a person 3000 miles away could be more helpful and encouraging than someone who was living in the room next to you!

Striving to be healthy wasn’t an easy adjustment for me. I was surrounded by people who could eat whatever they want and not gain a pound. It made me always think, how come when I eat that amount of food I gain weight like crazy? I also always had the mentality that living the healthy lifestyle was extremely expensive. Eventually, I found ways to make it inexpensive and I’ll share my tips along the way!

Why I’m starting this blog

I’m not only starting a blog to inspire others to be healthy but to share my overall journey of life with you all. I’ll share my setbacks, and amazing moments I have in my life. You’ll find out what’s worked for me, and how I save money while becoming fit. I will also be sharing other ways I save money in different aspects of my life, not just the fitness and healthy eating part of my life (which makes up about 80% of my life LOL).

I’m extremely excited to meet others that have changed their lifestyle. I love hearing other people’s stories and I absolutely LOVE getting feedback and tips/advice. I will be posting workouts and my favorite healthy and delicious recipes as well. My recipes are extremely easy to make and so incredibly tasty!

Since this IS called FITnancials, I will also share with you how I save money while living a healthy lifestyle. Being healthy doesn’t have to be expensive unless you make it expensive!

Thank you all for joining me and I hope you all have fun reading!

 Just for a little fun, please share your fitness/health goal for 2013!

Here are my go-to ways to having a healthy and fit body:

I highly recommend checking out the 14-Day Lean Clean meal plan if you are trying to lose weight or get healthier. The book is filled with tons of useful information (over 200 pages worth!). Not only does it talk about nutrition, but it dives into sleep patterns, how and why to ditch added sugar, salt, oil, and how to stay motivated throughout your weight loss journey.

Here are my go-to ways to saving and making money:
