Since I decided to loose weight last May of 2017, I am proud to say that I have now lost 31 lbs in total. The process wasn’t easy. It does need a lot of determination, focus and a lot of patience.
During this journey, I tried and still trying different ways on how to loose weight (rushed, moderate phase & relax). Other than having the will to stay fit, one must be willing to move and burn calories. Disclaimer alert: I am not a pro! It worked for me and it might not work for you. And oh? Not much money shedded in here. free and pure and clean healthy living!
1. Exercise: After loosing about 20 lbs from walking in the mall, I changed up my routine and went to a sort of massive workout which I do at home (not on a regular basis). I have a yoga mat, dumbbells (3lbs), 10 lb weight, treadmill and ab chair at home which we bought years ago (You don’t need to buy if you don’t have any, these are optional). My routine usually consist of cardio, arms, and ab workout which takes me 1 hour and 30 minutes max to do. I try to do this everyday as much as I can. When I get busy, as much as possible I don’t let another week pass by after my last workout as the muscles and fats will stop moving if I do. Atleast a day in between is pretty much acceptable.
2. Control: I don’t follow any strict rules in dieting except counting my calorie intake. For my body built and lifestyle I am allowed to take 1200 calories/day but (which, not advised) I try to limit my intake to 800 only or less (Very unhealthy and inappropriate). I eat rice, pasta, cake and all but small amounts only. Starving and depriving yourself is also not good for your body yerkno!. Beverage wise, I stopped drinking pop and not so on alcoholic drinks anymore. I drink warm water before and after meal to help in digesting and not sure if this is true but I heard it helps on melting the fats you have in your belly part too. Eating is good, just learn to control yourself from eating too much.
3. Go Now!: I have this qoute in my mind that I always tell myself everytime I get lazy working out which is “This time next year, you’ll wish you started this last year!” Which is definitely true! Start working out the moment you thought of it, preferably morning, before you convince yourself not to or do it tomorrow.
“E-C-G for is for the heart and heart is for the soul” Get the humor? Hahaha!
Happy Living Healthy!
That’s it for now,
