Jess Bow Travels - LIFE | Changes Part II

LIFE | Changes Part II

In July, I blogged about “Changes”,  Today, it’s almost 2 months later and I have updates!


I didn’t get serious until the end of July, when I stepped on the scale and saw that I gained 25 pounds since I last stepped on it. Yikes. Instead of wallowing in my sorrows and being in denial, I decided to step up my game and take things seriously. 30 days after beginning, I am down 10 pounds!

As you can see in the above photos (please excuse my post gym hair), my legs have slimmed down, my stomach is flatter and my butt is smaller. With a lot of dedication, I’ve been able to make this happen. Here’s how!


Macros. I am not a girl that can go through a day eating vegetables and small pieces of fish. I need real food and flexibility. Counting Macros is the perfect way to do it! I use MyFitnessPal to plan my meals each day 

I stick to around 120g Carbs, 50g Fat, 120g Protein daily (which ends up being around 1300-1400 calories) Today, my meals have consisted of a Chipotle Burrito Bowl, a Grilled Chicken Sandwich from Chick-Fil-A, Coffee from Starbucks and a Homemade Grilled Chicken Salad. By eating similarly and exercising often over the last 30 days, I’ve seen a huge difference!


I’v been working out 4-5 days per week, 45-ish minutes per day. My workouts ALWAYS include Weightlifting. I also add in some HIIT workouts or the good ol’ Stair Master. I always make sure I sweat and I usually end up leaving the gym looking like I sat in a sauna the whole time.KB Training | JessBowTravels


I wanted to try to save any sort of traveling until 2017, but I just couldn’t do it! Christmas is around the corner, and a vacation is necessary for Jason and I before the Holiday madness begins! So, we found $75 tickets through Frontier Airlines and we are heading back to Portland 🙂 We will be camping with friends, going on long waterfall hikes and checking out more of the area.

Jason and I have spent the last few years learning an entirely new product, new machines, new materials, all in an effort to expand our business. We have a garage full of discarded wood from all of our time spent learning, experimenting and brainstorming. This year, we finally launched a few of our creations and we are SO proud of what we have created. We put our heart into each item and I feel like it really shows. We now sell custom frames and custom ornaments!OrnamentSet1WanderingFablesFRAME12 | Wandering Fables

We have so many more things to create. I’m excited what the future holds for our business! Check our store out for more! WanderingFables
