Plus Size Fitness: PCOS, Goddess Dressing, Body Weight Workouts (Video)

I woke up on January 1st feeling really gross. My scalp was flaky and itchy due to an eczema flare up. My face was broken out, my period had been two days late (not a good sign for PCOS) and I had crazy swelling in my ankles.

When I decided to take December off from my plus size fitness life, I assumed I’d gain weight but I didn’t anticipate the other ways I’d fall apart. I’m starting to realize that what I eat affects more than just my weight.

After starting the January Jump Start with the #PSPfit girls, if I wasn’t 100% sure that clean eating is the best option for me, I am now. One week of clean eating and my ankles are no longer cankles, face is clear, aunt flow should be back to her regularly scheduled visits and my eczema flare up has subsided.

So, I guess that means no more month long “breaks”, huh? *looks away*

If you want to know what it looks like to do #PSPfit, I’ve made a little vlog about what I did to lose 6.9 pounds in the first week. I’ve got food ideas, planning tips and my gym sessions below!

#PSPfit Clean & Green Boot Camp (21 Days for $21)

Greetings from California, hope you’re having a fabulous holiday! I’m hibernating with my family but I did want to check in with you girls on #PSPfit stuff.

How has your holiday food/fitness been?

Bad news from my end, I’ve been breaking out, my eczema is acting up and my period started three days later than it should have. A year ago that wouldn’t have meant anything to me, but working with my nutrition coach is allowing me to understand that my body tells me when I need to get my act together, especially when it comes to my eating. While I don’t regret the good times and good meals I’ve had over the holiday season, clean eating is definitely what my body needs, especially as I try to manage my PCOS.

Excema, acne and an out of whack menstrual cycle is my body saying “Excuse me, those holiday indulgences are messing with your #PSPfit groove!” and just in case I didn’t get the message, I jumped on the scale last week and I’d gained five pounds… womp womp!

There’s some good news, which is that Abra (my nutrition coach) is designing a January detox for me and its going to be 21 days of what she calls “clean and green eating”. I’m excited to get back to my morning smoothies and home cooked meals so I can regain clear skin, timely visits from aunt flow and drop this holiday weight.

Anyway, I was wondering if we could use this 21 day session to test some #PSPfit boot camp changes.

I want to see if we can bring the price down even more… the whole point of #PSPfit is to make professional nutrition coaching available/affordable to any girl who wants it, so I’d like to test out doing 21 days with Abra for $21. If enough people sign up and I can still manage to pay Abra for her time with us, we’ll keep the $21 rate for future boot camps too. *fingers crossed* (Click here to spread to word)

Registration for the $21 #PSPfit Clean & Green Boot Camp will begin on January 1st. We run bootcamps via email/private facebook groups so you can join from anywhere! As always, we will open the list via email, so remember to pre-register here. Boot Camp will run for 21 days from January 12th-February 1st.

Are you down for a January detox?
