No Pain, No Gain!


Another month has quickly come and gone.  It is unreal how fast time is flying....especially when you have goals to meet.  Sometimes I wish I could slow time down. (or lengthen the days, lol!)

I am very happy with my Fitbit totals this week.  Compared to the last year, this is a great improvement for me.

There have been a couple of suggestions made to me.....some changes that I might try to help with the weight loss.  (by the way....thank you for all of your comments and tips! I really appreciate all the help I can get!)  Laurie at Lulu and Daisy  was recommended by her doctor to switch activities, when exercising, every 20 mins so that your body doesn't go into memory mode.  I am trying that this week.  Also, many say that 1200 calories is not enough.  I am going to tweak my calories count this week also and see if that helps.  

Also, I am really excited about Gympact!!  I have started using the app this week.  It is really cool!! After you reach $10, you can transfer money directly to your account.  I am using the Paypal option, which protects me from giving out my banking information.  I will have an update next week for sure!!  Right now, if you interested, use the referral code and you will automatically get $5 for signing up.  It's that easy!!

{ Gympact: It is reward program that you can use on your smartphone.  If you are going to work out, why not be rewarded!! But if you aren't going to meet your goals, you pay in the pot. Money is an excellent motivation!!  Go to this link and sign up today!! They are offering $5 for signing up. (I'm thinking that is an easy Starbucks!)  You must put in this referral code for the $5: EFAFranc }

Even after the minimal loss last week, I haven't given up hope.  I am working just as hard this week as last week.  We can do this!!

To a healthier lifestyle!!


  1. I sure hope my "words of wisdom" help! Here's some more info for you. 1200 is very low. I'm also big on shocking your body. You know, cheat when you're on a plateau and the weight will finally move in the right direction. Everyone is different, so you never know what will work for you!
    Good luck,
    Lulu and Daisy

  2. That looks awesome! I have heard about the fit you like it? Right now I use my fitness pal and a polar heart rate monitor watch to count my calories..but that looks so cool. I would definitely increase the 1200 calories. I worked out for months and did not lose anything because I was eating 1200 and working out and because my body wasn't getting enough food, I didn't lose a thing. It was very frustrating. Love the blog btw :) will be following you!

  3. I know what you mean, March just seemed to get away from me! Crazy how time flies. I'm hoping April is a much better month!

  4. Thanks again Laurie!!

    Brandy....I love my Fitbit. I also use my Fitness Pal too. With the two combined, they are a big help! I was afraid of the 1200 calories, but when you are working so hard, you are afraid to overeat. I am going to try increasing for sure this week and see how it goes!

  5. I love this GYMPACT idea.. I am currently downloading it from the app store now! Thank you for sharing on your blog!

    Do you love your Fitbit? It it worth the money?


  6. I think I signed up for Gympact with your code.


I love to hear from all of you! Thank you for taking the time to comment!
