Kickboxing my way to a better body

Thursday, December 10, 2015

Hey Sparklers! Yet again, I sneak in through the backdoor of Spark to update you on the madness I call my life, and then I slip away like a thief in the night. Now that this mommy thing has become second nature again, I hope to stay a while. My son, Desmond (Dez) has Bronchial Pulmonary Disease and so there are a lot of doctor's appointments and plenty of restriction to prevent him from getting sick, but overall, life is AMAZING with him in it. I mean, how can you not fall in love with this face???

He is pretty much the best, ever. Now that he is stable and we understand how to manage his health, it is time for me to reclaim mine, and I have been doing just that. In October I was invited to join a Nutrition and Weight Loss Support Group. We met every Wednesday for 6 weeks to weigh-in, discuss our struggles, and share information. At the end of the 6 weeks, money was given to the person that lost the most weight and the most inches. Guess who won??? YOUR GIRL DID!!

I didn't lose much, only 5 lbs in 6 weeks but I loss a good amount of inches. I did take a little sabbatical during the Thanksgiving holiday, but I jumped right back into the fire by joining a Kickboxing Gym. It is so hard! But after just four classes, I began seeing changes in my body. I also go to Mixxed Fit twice a week. I can already see a difference in my face, the tone of my arms and my tummy is a little less fluffy. Here is a picture I took yesterday with Desmond and I:

The Kickboxing gym requires you to sign a year contract and at $125 a month, you can say that I AM COMMITTED! I am looking forward to feeling like an athlete again. And a new Weight Loss Challenge just begun yesterday, this one 8 weeks and I am down for winning again!

    Hey girl! Congratulations on the little one. He's soooooo cute! You still looking good too. Keep up the great effort. And yes kickboxing is the *ish. I did it for a few weeks in the summer because I won a short term membership. If I had the extra funds I'd keep up with it. Good luck to you on your journey. emoticon emoticon

    way to go love.you are doing great and so is desmond by the look of it.i know getting used to all dr´s,hospitals and therapist appointments get some getting used to at first but you do get used to it love and learn to work your lifs around it.zakariya has another lung specialist appointment next week he is down to tzhe lung specialist every 8 weeks now while ayman is down to every 4 months.though that can always change to more often if the specialist isn´t pleased with lung function etc.if ever you need to talk ,sound off vent i am here for you.sometimes you don´t want to vent to family and friends as you want to seem stronger than you are for them so that they stay strong.keep up the good work you are getting there again love.you can so what from do this love.you rock emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
