How I dropped weight just in time for Fashion Week + GIVEAWAY!!

When I decided to attend New York Fashion Week this year I knew I wanted to drop a bit of weight first. It has been a STRUGGLE to say the least to lose weight but Fashion Week was the perfect reason to get focused. Clothes weren't fitting like they needed to and it has been affecting my confidence big time. Confidence is a mandatory accessory when you hit that concrete jungle so I had to focus.

To drop some pounds and reach my goals in a hurry I reached out to personal trainer and owner of Iconic Fitness, Star Legend for help. I reached out to Starr because of his passion for getting people healthy and happy with their bodies and because quite frankly I've failed at everything else and I knew he wouldn't judge me if I slipped up once or twice. 

We decided together on a plan that would work with my work schedule, the distance and his busy training schedule. Since he is in Jersey and I am in Maryland we decided on virtual training sessions twice a week at 6am. Now let me explain this lovely thing called virtual training I completely fell in love with. Not only was it super convenient, but it was extremely effective. I was bored with watching workout videos on DVD, OnDemand or YouTube and found myself slacking off and not seeing results.  With Star right there on the screen pushing me through the pain and adjusting the moves to meet my needs I was much more engaged and seen the results I needed. 

In less than 30 days I dropped about 8 pounds and felt fabulous for NYFW. I still have a long way to go before I am at my goal but I certainly felt amazing during Fashion Week and now even more motivated to keep going! Thanks Star!
Trying on dresses was much less mortifying then it usually is, this pic taken last weekend trying on Altazurra for Target dress, this is a size 8.....holla holla!
These white pants from Zara were purchased over a year ago while in Florida and couldn't even button them until now. 
In upcoming fitness posts I'm going to take you inside our sessions and show you the exercises we did as well as share my nutrition and meal plan. If you have ever considered virtual training in the past I would highly, highly recommend it! Find out more HERE!
