안녕하세요!

Finding time to write lately has been a challenge.
I usually leave the house early and get home late because of school.
Luckily today, I arrived a little more than an hour before my class and because I wasn’t able to eat breakfast at home, I went straight to Kenny Rogers – a minute or two from the entrance of my school.

Here is my breakfast:

I know it isn’t the healthiest out there but trust me, it is better than my breakfast for most days which usually consists of rice, fried egg, fried hotdog/spam, etc.
Lately, I’ve been trying to fix my fitness routine and diet.

Last Wednesday, I tried boxing for the first time.
It was better than expected.
My sister and I arrived at around 8:30 in the morning at the  gym (but started at around 9:00).
Our training finished at around 12NN.
Without the breaks, I think we trained for at least 1 hour and 45 minutes which by the way is a BIG leap for me cause I’m not really a fan of strenuous activities.
I even hate jogging! —Our warm up was a 15 minute jog.
THE HORROR.
But yes, though it was hard for me and especially for my legs, I did it without cheating 😛
The day after the trial session, my body was a bit sore.

Yesterday (Monday), I had another boxing session.
This time, it was my first training as an official member.
I acquired a membership because aside from having discounts, I’d like it to be another pushing force for me to achieve my fitness goals.
I’m not sure what the difference was (aside for the increase in intensity) but I felt like I liked the sport even more.
It is tiring, yes.
But for some reason, I’d like the idea of me sweating because of working out.
There is this unexplainable feeling of accomplishment after the training and I actually don’t feel bad eating lunch afterwards.
Mind you, I didn’t binge eat!

I think that aside from being a physical workout, boxing also is a form of disipline.
Frankly, my right shoulder is a bit sore since yesterday.
I think it is because of my wrong form when punching or because I exerted a little too much effort.
Anyway, I know this will pass.
The pain doesn’t bother me because I believe in the saying that soreness due to exercise is a reward and not a punishment.

I plan to go boxing twice a week.
(Mondays & Wednesdays – or maybe even Saturdays)
I am slowly progressing and watching what I eat slowly.
How about you? Have you found or do you have a sport or fitness routine? 🙂
Trust me, it feels great afterwards!

It has been awhile since I last wrote here.
Frankly, I still don’t know what to write.
There are so much things in my mind that I want to say but for some unknown reason, I just couldn’t get my hands to type the words.
I know that my writing ”skills” are a bit rusty right now but I promise to make it up to you through a post within this week – or next.
It’ll be a short update on as to what has happened with my dream job, what I am doing to achieve it and my realizations on some things.
Another reason on as to why I can’t write a lengthy post tonight is because I need to sleep early.
I have an 8 AM class tomorrow which means that I have to get up at 5:45 AM.
Also, after my class, it’ll be the first time that I’ll try the sport, boxing.
Please anticipate my ”path to fitness”. HAHAHA.
Seriously though.. I have been binge eating a lot lately.
Or when I’m not, the food I eat are not necessarily ”healthy” per se.
I feel so guilty which is why I’ll start (IN ALL SERIOUSNESS) my fitness plan.
I don’t actually have a fixed plan yet but I’ll definitely cut down my carbohydrate intake, choose healthier food options and do boxing or other form of exercise at least twice a week.
I need to do this for myself, for my dream job and for my future.
I know that does sound a bit selfish but who else will love you and take care of you but yourself, right?
You should always value yourself. 🙂
This is it for now.
Ciao!
