How I Plan to Get Fit #shapelygirl

I like to eat. And I don't like to exercise. Did I mention I'm only 5 foot tall? Yeah, so I'm kinda in trouble. Every extra pound shows. And I don't like it at all. But that's not the only thing. I'm only 33 years old and already have problems with high blood pressure. I need to get healthy for my kids! I can complain all I want about how much I weigh but unless I get up off my butt and do something it's never going to change. As much as I would love to have a Fairy Godmother to wave her magic wand, I don't think that is going to happen.

But in a way though I do have a Fairy Godmother, Debra Mazda from ShapelyGirl Fitness. She has already been through this journey of getting healthy and fit. And she did it! Now she works toward helping others do the same. She will be right with me the entire time I do this. If I have questions or concerns, I can go to her and ask what I can do to make it better. One thing I really love is that Debra doesn't focus on the weight loss, but more on the aspect of getting healthier and learning to be the best you you can be.

When I first saw that Christian Women Affiliate was putting together a review crew for this...I hesitated. Did I want to commit myself to really starting on the journey of getting healthier and in better shape? It's not that I don't want to, but that this isn't something to take lightly. It's a lifestyle change.

For the next month I'm going to be trying (and hopefully succeeding) in my journey to losing weight and learning to be healthier. I won't be alone. There are 26 other women doing the same thing. We will be there to support each other and encourage others to keep moving forward.  I have a new workout DVD called Walking Fit and Fabulous that is going to be my main choice of exercise to start out. It will be done at least 3 times during the week.
This video is a fun, easy to follow, low-impact video that will have you sweating and burning calories. You’ll tone your body while losing weight. Each song has it's own routine that is challenging, motivating and will make you feel and look good. 

Included are a 10-minute bonus track and 4 pre-mixes so you’ll never get bored or tired. You’ll have a new routine every day. An expanded version of Debra's signature “Circle Time” is also included. Come join Debra and the girls for an energizing workout! 

Level: Beginners and all fitness levels 

I really am very excited to try this out and to see the results I get after a full month of use. I'm also going to try to eat healthier. This will be a biggie for me. I'm a southern girl. We like fried foods! And I really like my pop. :( Oh well, I'm just going to have to learn everything in moderation!

I hope you'll come back and see how I'm doing and be sure and cheer me on. I haven't measured or weighed myself yet. I think I will do all that tomorrow before I officially start. But I am going to leave you with the last picture taken of me. This was about 3 weeks ago. Ignore the date on the picture. You know how that works. ;) Anyways, let's see what things look like in a month, shall we?

  1. I'm excited that we have a team for this journey to encourage each other as we go. (Another Southern girl who enjoyed fried beignets yesterday.)

  2. I'm your age and I have health issues too. I also want to get healthy for my family. We can do this! I'm so thankful to be part of this crew!

  3. I'm on the crew with you and praying you along. Just keep moving we can do this! I love how you said "But in a way though I do have a Fairy Godmother, Debra Mazda from ShapelyGirl Fitness."

    Debra is my Fairy Godmother too! I am linked up
