go to site Hello Everyone! I am Raylene and here is my little blog entry about my weight loss journey and a little video I put together last weekend (finally had some nice weather).
http://homestoneproperty.com/?p=graph-inequalities-homework-help I am not going to tell you a story about how I was an athlete that fell from glory or how I was obese once upon a time; I am just an average Jane trying to get stronger, sexier, and to stop making excuses. I have spent most of my adult life “chunky” and content with it. I figured I would take chunky over obese, right. Well, starting the end of last year I had decided enough was enough. I had began to have some digestive problems and I literally felt like shite all the time. At first I was quick to assume it was because I was getting older. I started taking Probiotics and they helped some, but not completely. As 2011 came to a close I was pretty miserable with the digestive issues and all the weight I had put back on, so I went online to try to help pull me up out of my lazy ass slump. See I have been “working out” on and off for quite
go a few years, some years more than others, but I had fallen into a severe funk. I wasn’t finding any enjoyment in running, mainly because I sucked at it, and I had no real direction in the gym. I had picked up some kettlebells awhile back, played around for a bit, but again no direction equaling little to no progress. Meaning they sat in my basement and collected dust.

I had been searching for someone to show me some kettlebell workouts that weren’t all Jane Fonda like and MK fit the bill perfectly. I started doing her routines (at my ability level) and motivation slowly started creeping back into my fitness soul. Through MK, I found Nia Shanks and Girls Gone Strong.

http://kkkreation.com/?p=life-goal-essay Finding Nia helped me gain direction at the gym (in the weight room) and also helped me get my diet in order. Yes, I was one of those, “I can out exercise a bad diet” types. Nia wrote up a blog post about the different types of Intermittent Fasting programs that were around the fitness world and gave a little insight to each. I started simple (just like Nia suggested) and decided to fast at least 14 hours a day. It was a bitch at first, but slowly I started to grow accustomed to it. Now, I do a combination of 14-16 hours a day with 2 longer fasting each week and when I do eat I try to eat better choices. I digress… Fast forward to now and guess what I am down at least 20 lbs, I can do at least one unassisted chin-up, I can squat my bodyweight, I do MK’s workout 2-3 times a week, and I am loving every damn minute of it. Oh and by the way no digestive issues, my body was just sick and tired of all the shite I was eating.
next Anywho, thanks MK for being there and also for the guest blog post thingy. GGS Rocks!!! Cheers!
