I'm working my abs and legs for Black Gold Saw~ I do work outs every night before bed, which works wonders for me because not only does it help me stay fit, but it also tires me out - which in turn helps me sleep a lot easier. X"D

So far I've been able to cut down on soda a lot, and if I drink soda, to only drink Sprite or light soda drinks with real sugar (I used to always drink dark soda drinks as well as diet drinks, which are worse for you ._.). Even then, I need to cut back more on those.

I've also been trying to eat more throughout the day, but in small portioned amounts, as well as making myself eat breakfast in the morning of some sort and drink at least two thermos' full of water a day. I tend to work out two-three times a week for about an hour and a half, focusing on cardio, abs and arms, and have a hip-hop dance class once a week that's another hour of working out. Over spring break I was able to work out an hour every day and definitely saw progress, however, it's hard with college to maintain that routine.

I need to get fit by June 10thish for Akon. I think I can do it! Any suggestions though??
My only suggestion is to make sure you do something that gets your heart rate up; running, swimming, cycling ect.. you don't want to just work out your abs. People are given the prenotion that buying all these tv ab machines or doing 100's of sit ups and cruncha will give you a tiny belly... you'll just build muscle under fat, which is still good, but if you want to lose it, you need to do something else. Also, during cruches/sit ups, it's important you breath OUT going up, you want to keep your muscle in not pushed out into a hernia.

I'm trying to get my legs toned and get some abs at my tummy area for my Chrome Dokuro Cosplay. I've always felt self-conscious about my tummy area. Its when I sit down that it all pudges out =( When I stand up, there's a little puff, not much. So working hard to build some abs that don't exist atm. =.= midriff at the most inconvenient area. >.<

I'm being Wolverine from the movie franchise

I have been hitting the gym 3 times a week, working mostly on arms and chest. Free weights galore, and making sure to be drinking a LOT of water at all times. I have been eating lots of chicken and fish, and making sure not to skip a meal. Skipping a meal is way worse than you'd think it is. As many green vegetables as I can eat too. They are nothing but good for you, so when I get snackish I grab a salad rather than a burger. Keeps you full and fit

trying to loose the bags under my eyes ^_^""
not to mention working on my thighs for my Rena costume...they show. alot.

i've started jogging 3 minutes a day, the walking 1 minute, then jogging again for 3 more minutes.
i'm planning on going to the 'conroe swimming area' and swim for 30 minutes an hour once every two or three days, because when you swim you work out your WHOLE body...and it's about 30 minutes away from my house, haha- my friend is helping me do it, he swims like an otter.
i want my legs to look like this:
Anime Matsuri
Summoner Yuna- Final Fantasy X
Edward Elric-Fullmetal Alchemist

North Italy-Hetalia
Link-Oracle of Seasons/Oracle of Ages ver.- The Legend of Zelda
Super Sailor Chibi Moon- Sailor Moon

Felicia Hardy aka Black Cat from Spiderman. That skintight black catsuit does not leave much to the imagination...

Cloud Strife (Advent Children) or Zack Fair (Crisis Core)? Decisions...decisions.

Now that I have a nice pair of working headphones for my iPod, it shouldn't be a problem working out to the max.

I've been wanting to do this cosplay for a while and finally coming around to it.

I've been trying to get a hold of my health for myself, not just cosplay, and have been working really hard since last November to get it together! I cut out bread, sodas, and most sugars from my diet and lost 21 lb's in two months. I make sure that I get my 2 liters of water a day, and that was a struggle for me, but I got the hang of it now. I also make sure I work out at least four days a week. I go hiking every Tuesday with a couple friends and my boyfriend. I also have a 24 hour fitness membership for the other days of the week.
