I am so Excited to be sharing this ‘thing’ that I went and did today!
I responded to an ad on Facebook January 6th. The ad stated that they needed women to participate in a 16 week program. When I saw punching bags and boxing gloves….I just knew I had to respond. Do you know how many times I just wanted to backhand somebody in 2019? How many times I watched politics on tv and wanted to uppercut every politician, Democrat and Republican to the planet Venus? This is going to work for my stress levels…..I just knew it would!
The FitSmart Challenge is a nationally recognized weight loss program that has helped thousands of people across the country meet their fitness goals! The Coaches were looking for participants who are willing to embark on a 16 Week Weight Loss Journey! The program is designed to work for ANYBODY and EVERYBODY. You DO NOT have to be in good shape to start this program. The only requirement is that you have to attend at least a minimum of 3 times every week for attendance.
So their system responded back to me with a text and location for me to meet for Program orientation.
When we walked in, my husband and I were greeted by Coach Kenny. I immediately got the ‘Funny & cool Big Brother vibes’ from him.
Now, let me explain my description of Coach Kenny…..my momma ain’t raise no fool so….. usually and I may be wrong….but when I was in the military, the ones that seem chill will bust your ‘inner quitter’ like a grape. So, I already knew it was a (my perception/IMO) setup and said under my breath…..
Me: “awww crap. abort, abort, abort!”
Now, ….Y’all should be so proud of me though because I decided to take a seat at the back and hear Coach Kenny’s orientation out. So, I’m going to sit right here in the back (I thought)….yup… umm hmm.
…..but He told me to take a seat in the front row though.
Me: Dangit! ABORT ABORT ABORT ….*and ruuuuuuun girl!
…but no I stayed.(*gotta do this Ayana*)
So, here’s the deal. I signed up for the 16 week Fit Smart Challenge. My contract is for a year. At $69.00 a month and you pay the first and last month up front before your first class. You have access to group training sessions, plus a friendly, intimidation-free environment.
My husband attended the orientation with me so he decided to sign up also (even though he has a gym membership already but hey …*shrug*…it’s all good.) Variety in your workout regimen can be a good thing if moderated correctly.
..and all members receive access to a comprehensive online meal plan! I will have to follow it for the 16 weeks; meaning that there will be no sugary nothing for a while which is my weakness. Oh lord the gummy lifesavers are my weakness! So this is not a game folks.
I will be posting a series of 48 VLogs (Video Logs) listing my meals, weigh-ins, measurements and other progress reports. It averages out to about 3 Videos per week. I feel really vulnerable, honestly. For a very long time, I have never wanted to put my weight out there for my friends, family and readers to scrutinize. However, I believe that it will hold me accountable to record my truth and be happy with my progress or not depending on me adhering to the plan.
You can find the VLogs over at my YouTube Channel HERE.
So what do you think? Are you excited for me? I’m excited for me! This amazing program will provide the motivation, structure and accountability to help me get results.
So, thanks in advance for all your support and stay tuned! ~
