Weight Journey Vol. 2

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,



Weight Journey Vol. 1

Since I resided in Canada, I indulged myself with too much food. I ate the same amount of serving I used to have when I was still in college and spoilt myself with the foods I used to overlook. This habit stayed on me for years without thinking too much of where this could lead me. All I know was that, I am happy and I am full.

For the past years, I kept eating cups of rice, large fast food meals, bars of chocolate, slices of cake and pizzas, sodas, and even chugging up beers regardless of what time of the day it is already. Lifestyle wise, my 8 – 12 hour job was the only exercise I have. I don’t even exercise when I am off. I pampered myself too much.

Though, there were times that I tried to be fit. I applied for a gym membership, I did Zumba, I biked, I trimmed down the calories I eat and I drank slimming juices but those only lasted for weeks. Honestly, some of these were really effective like the slimming juice that helped me loose 10 lbs. in 2 weeks but it did not last me long as I keep coming back to my old eating habit and I stopped drinking it.

As I get heavier and heavier, I notice that when walking even in a short distant, I grasps from breath. Waking up early is getting harder each day. Skin is getting flaky, dryer and flabbier. But what really motivated me is when I saw visible red scars in my skin. Yes! It is what you think it is and Yes! It is going to stay there forever!

Weeks after I noticed the scary scars, I started eating somehow healthier foods and my lifestyle is not so sedentary anymore. My weight stopped accumulating even though there are days that I cheat on my diet (I mean, Cheat Big time!). Now, I am proud to say that I have already lost 12 lbs.

I succeeded this 12 lbs lost journey in a very natural way and without shedding any money (perhaps, for car gasoline of course!). I started off by walking every morning for at least an hour which costs me to have at least 8 thousand steps per day. I do some arm, ab and and leg exercise in the afternoon. I lessen my rice intake starting with 1 cup each meal to 1/2 cup (to none/day at all) and I stopped drinking carbonated drinks. I even documented the journey and posted it on social media story which made me more motivated as it served as something that I look forward doing.

After this journey, I realized that I should have started loosing weight and tried living healthy years before. I should have not waited for some skin abnormalities to show up nor waited to gain so much weight before I started doing this.

Loosing weight and exercising is not hard. Maybe in the beginning but not throughout the process. Once you started and saw the result, You’ll realize that it was all in the mind. 

That’s it for now,
