What to do...besides eat!

Some things in life you just have no choice of those is metabolism.  When it came to the gene pool, I got the shallow end of the metabolism.  With a half brother and sister that are seriously on the verge of unhealthy skinny, it's obvious who hogged the metabolism when it was being handed out.  Being the baby...I guess there just wan't any left over.  Wonderful...thanks Dad!

So needless to say my life journey has never allowed me to just eat whatever I want without consequences.  To be quite honest with you, I can actually gain weight just by looking at a delightful morsel!

Well last year I was really big in to Cardio Kickboxing...and it rocked!  OMG...first of all I can't believe I would actually make it through the class alive.  Not to mention go back!  It was kind of like a were there and seriously didn't know if you were going to live through it and then at the end you couldn't believe you did it...adrenaline rush!  So you couldn't wait to go back.

Well I did lose a lot of weight and was totally tone.  I actually found that my arms really can have a definition line.  I had a muscle and I'm not even kidding.

Then around the summer of last year I started to slack off...however I ate what ever I wanted.  Don't ask me how I was adding this all up in my head to be remotely ok.  Well some...not all...but most of the weight is back.  So here I sit at the drawing board again.

I know what motivates me and that's I called one of my close friends and business partners...Blake.  I said, "I challenge you"...and he was all ears because...shocking...competition is what motivates him too!

So here is the competition...starting on February 1st, we are going to see who can lose the most weight in 2 April 1st.  (The last time I did a competition like this I lost 45 lbs in 5 months.)  I am so excited...any of you that would like to join in on the competition, please let me know and I will add you to it.

I will be blogging the progress...

So here's how I am going to start.  I have already gotten a gym membership, so I start on Monday.  Also, I will be eating no least for the first two weeks and then I will allow a small amount of carbs in to my life style.  Also, I am going to do a cleanse.  I have always wanted to do one and will be blogging about that...not the "outcome" if you will, but the process.  LOL

I will announce when we start and maybe we will even post pictures...before and after.  That would be very scary in the beggining...but worth it by the end.

Have a great day guys...because I only have a couple of days left, I'm off to Chinese food with the church.  LOL



  1. Oh Kandi, that's great. I want to join. What I need to do? Please, let me know.

    Have a nice day.

    Hope you enjoy the chinesse food.

  2. Oh Kandi! I completely understand! That's awesome that you're doing it. I've always had to fight it as well. Which cleanse are you doing? I did the Neera Super Cleanse in November. It was awesome, and I lost 10 pounds in 10 days. I'm planning on doing it again starting Monday. Let me know!

  3. That's awesome. I will definitely need a challenge once the twins arrive. Good Luck to you!!
