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.
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!
After a gazillion years…………….
I did it!
My sister and I did it!!
We followed the exercise video of Jillian Michaels!
Who is she?
Jillian Michaels is an American personal trainer, reality show personality, talk show host and entrepreneur from Los Angeles, California. Michaels is best known for her appearances on NBC’s The Biggest Loser and Losing It With Jillian.
We learned about her through our friend who wanted to lose weight.
But in all honesty..
That friend of ours need not lose even a single pound!
She just wants to be more lean and toned.
I don’t know about her other reasons but I’m pretty sure of one thing..
It worked for her.
When we see her, we always eat – may it be at her home or at the mall.
While we eat together, we talk about random things.
One thing we talked about was dieting and exercising.
She did the workout first and when it worked on her, she suggested it to us.
And after months, we finally tried it!
Let me be honest..
We didn’t finish it.
It was supposed to be for 45 whole minutes but we only managed to follow until around the 33rd minute.
I swear it was challenging!
But even though we didn’t finish it, we were really really sweating!
My muscles were stressed around the 20th minute.
Is it just my lack of warm up or did I overdo myself right away?
Even though that is the case, I didn’t have any regret.
I really feel fresh right now after a bath and though my body is a bit sore (especially my lower body), it is a good kind of sore. 🙂
Why don’t you give the Jillian Michaels exercise a try?
