I am BACK! (I took a short hiatus)

adi_respati_im_back

 

I took a hiatus from Naturally Curvaceous to take a minute to focus on what I want for myself and what I want for this blog.

I am BACK!

My promise to my subscribers and readers is that I will post at least once a week on my blog. I will still focus on fashion (on a dime), natural hair, being curvaceous, weight loss, and of course my random thoughts.

What I wanted to achieve for myself was:

  • A healthier lifestyle – some of which I will document on this blog
  • An addition to our family – a Yorkie named Nitro that I am sure you all will meet soon
  • A way to incorporate more family time into my schedule (with fun, free events, of course!) I will be sharing those with you as well.

For the blog I want to stay true to my authentic self and hopefully post information that is entertaining and interesting.

Thank you for sticking with me through this time, now let’s get on with it!!

Killing Myself in the Gym – But NOT LOSING ANY WEIGHT!

Ummmmm, can ANYONE help me to understand why I am literally killing myself, going to the gym 6-7 days a week at 5:30 am, working out on cardio machines (treadmill, elliptical, glider, bike) for an hour, burning approximately 600 -1000 calories and I am not losing ANY weight!

I am so determined….. BUT would like to see some results!

Treadmill

You might ask: Well, Yani, what are you eating – I am eating 1200 calories per day that I track in MyFitnessPal. So I cannot say that I eat perfect or “clean” but I do the best I can with mostly salads and proteins.

Ok, let me back up, I began my fitness journey 4 years ago by joining Weight Watchers and I lost 60 lbs on that plan (I did not buy their food but I was counting “points”). Along with WW I was exercising 3 times a week doing a WW aerobics DVD.

After WW, I had maintained that loss for 3 and a half years and then slowly I began gaining weight so I put my current plan into action. I joined Planet Fitness Gym on September 2, 2014. Since that time I have been working out regularly  (as stated in the opening paragraph). I work out at PF, track my food,  and I even invested in a FitBit!

I even use my FitBit to track my steps!

Can someone, anyone, tell me what in the world I am doing wrong? I do not mind being a curvy girl but if I am putting in the time at the gym, can a sista see SOME results?

My goal is to lose another 60 lbs!

Does anyone have any tips, advice, or help for me – PLEASE!!!!

Get to know Yani of NaturallyCurvaceous.com

My name is Yani and I am brand new to the blogging scene. I am starting this blog to share my thoughts on natural hair, being curvaceous, finding style bargains in thrift stores or flea markets, weight loss (or lack there of), my love of food, which could be the problem with the weight loss and just my random thoughts on anything that may pop into my mind.

I currently reside in Capitol Heights, MD. I am the mother of just one 10 year old boy who is the love of my life. I am recently engaged so I will not be offering any dating advice but I may give my thoughts on how to keep a relationship going.

I am a very simple woman that likes to keep as many “coins” in my pocket as possible. So I will share some of my frugal ways with you in hopes to keep the “coins” in your pocket too.

So sit back, relax, read, make comments and please share this blog with your friends!
