My Fitness Journey- 2015 and Beyond

9 Months Progress- The before pics are a HOT MESS..lol, but y'all should know I don't care by now.
 
A brief re-cap

Last April I made the decision to truly get in shape and get my body to where I wanted it to be.
For the last 5 or so years, I have been in and out of the gym or doing different at-home work-outs, but I was never consistent for longer than 2-3 months at a time.

In April I started my daily at-home work-outs which consisted of 5 minutes of cardio then 30 minutes of different ab & glutes workouts daily. After about 1 month, I saw a slight change in my weight/body and for some reason I stopped working out as much.

When May came around and I had a tooth issue, I decided to cut out almost all sugar, artificial sugars, dyes, etc from my diet. After doing that, I lost 10 pounds in one month with little exercise.

Between June and Mid August, I didn't work-out as much as I should have yet the weight still stayed off. That was good and all, but my body was not toned and not cute(to me). I also was sick for a little and lost even more weight.

So at the end of August(after intentionally gaining about 10 lbs back), I re-committed myself to the gym and I am proud to say that I am going stronger than ever. I work-out  6x a week. I go to the gym at least 4x a week and work-out at home on days I don't feel like going. I literally look forward to my workouts because I am loving the progress.
I have also changed my diet, water intake and hair regimen to fit my current lifestyle.

I just recently got a Fitbit HR Charge(which I LOVEEEE) and I am also doing a challenge with my friend, LaLa which ends March 25th. So stay tuned....

Please let me know if you're interested in fitness posts. I can go more in-depth if so.  This was just a peak into what's been going on in my life since I been gone.
