My Fitness Journey with Blogilates



If you know me you know that I will not shut up about Blogilates. Cassey Ho is an online workout guru! She is an inspiration to myself and thousands of other followers. I am so obsessed with her. Every month Cassey posts new workout calendars for a daily workout that is amazing! Each workout takes around an hour a day and you actually have fun doing them! She also offers meal plans, has an online store, and much much more! Please check out her site. I am her biggest fan. For real. To learn more about her click here.

Two years ago I gained the freshman 15.. who am I kidding.. more like the freshman 25. I went from being hardly 100lbs to 129lbs. Which hear me out, I'm not saying that is fat at all! I am 5'1 and with such a petite frame that weight was VERY noticeable. I honestly just got to the point where I felt so bad about myself I didn't want to do anything. I wouldn't go out like a 19/20 year old does. I was embarrassed to run into anyone from high school because I knew they would say "Did you see how much weight she gained?" Not a way to live... Around July 2011 I found Blogilates on tumblr by total accident. I tried one of her videos and loved it but it was way too hard for me! And honestly.. I didn't want to work out. Working out was a chore to me. It was a punishment. I let myself go. It was my fault. Self pitty.


One day I woke up at my lowest point (not to mention largest size) and decided I was sick and tired of being sick and tired. I stuck to the Blogilates calendar probably 90% of the time. I ate clean for every meal every single day. When you eat a grilled chicken salad every day- you crave a grilled chicken salad every day! Instead of that vege and carb with your lean protein have double veges! These tiny changes helped drastically compared to my "Let's get Sonic Mozz sticks with a Cheeseburger and Tots" lifestyle. With time and dedication I lost a total of 25 lbs and am now the happiest and healthiest I have ever been. Losing extra body weight is awesome for the confidence and glow that everybody craves! But what is more important is how healthy our bodies are and how they function.

DISCLAIMER: I am not a personal trainer. I am not educated in fitness. I am not a dietician! This blog is about my own life/story/opinion. No negative comments please!


***UPDATE!
I emailed Cassey a link to my blog and she actually read it and took the time to respond AH

  1. You had me at Blogilates! Yes I do her videos, it used to be at least once a week but lately I've been doing spinning at the gym. Cassey is awesome! Another YT fitness channel I like is FitnessBlender.

  2. You are such an inspiration to me! I the same height and starting weight and have gained about 20 lbs since starting college. Everyone around me says I'm crazy for being dissatisfied with my body and I feel like no one understands. I'm not saying that I'm fat, I'm just uncomfortable at this weight for myself. You look amazing and I know you worked so hard to get there! It's so relieving to read a story like this that I can relate to. Are there any other tips you can give me as I begin my journey?

  4. I try my hardest to stick to Cassey's calendars, but I always feel like I'm going to die and stop doing them. And then of course regret it later. Ugh!

    1. Hey! Why don't you try the beginners calendar? And then you can try with the actual ones that she keeps posting :) <3 Here I leave you the link! http://www.blogilates.com/blog/2013/06/03/beginners-calendar-for-popsters-just-starting-out/ I'm on day 5 and just loving it! My goal is to keep up with her monthly calendars after this one... But you gotta start somewhere, right? :)

  6. Like most journeys, it all begins by waking up in your lowest point or being discontented with where you are and the desire to move forward. I guess it helped that you found something that will make you do something about the change you wanted to happen. And now look at the changes all those “punishing” workouts have brought to yourself. Kudos for making it this far!

  9. If you don't have time for workouts and still want to lose weight, you can try Garcinia Cambogia Extract! I lose weight and so happy about it!
