And now I’m back to Manila!
Back to reality.
Back to controlled eating schedules.
And supposedly, back to exercising.
Why and where did I go?
Check two of the posts before this post to find out!
During the past two days, I was succumbed to binge eating.
Now that I am off my short getaway mode self, I am not doing much and I can control my eating schedule.
Luckily, I didn’t feel hungry throughout the day.
I ate breakfast as soon as I wake up and had oatmeal two hours after even though I didn’t feel hungry.
Because when I’m hungry, I eat a lot.
Since I ate oatmeal, it is only now (8PM) that I feel like eating again.
So here I am eating my dinner slowly while typing.
I know a lot of people, especially moms, hate it when their children do something else while eating but I have to.
I eat fast and that is one of the reasons why I don’t feel full right away.
It is best to eat slowly because you’ll give your stomach the time to process the food and for your brain to register that you are already full.
During the past days I was really into getting in shape.
I am not blaming the getaway for not being able to exercise!
It is just that I wasn’t able to last night because I was really really tired and today, it slipped my mind.
Exercise was supposed to be before bath and before dinner but before I remembered, I already took a bath.
I promise to exercise tomorrow though!
need want to get in shape for myself.
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?

And tell me about it!
Today is Saturday, my first day off of work this week.
Work days are from Monday till Friday only.
And because I haven’t been getting enough sleep hours lately because I still have yet to fix my sleep cycle, I got them all back today.
What do I mean?
Because I got home late from my Friday dinner out, I arrived at home at almost 12MN.
And since I missed reading stories in Wattpad, I read a short story and a few updates.
I slept at around 2:45 in the morning.
I woke up at around 10 AM.
My sleep was around 7 hours and 15 minutes.
I was still sleepy when I woke up so after 30 minutes, I managed to get some sleep again.
My second sleep was from 10:30 AM till 5:30 PM!!!
Another 7 hours!
I slept a lot today.
But in the past also, I can really sleep for long periods.
There is just something about sleeping that I can’t get enough of.
When I woke up from my second sleep, I really felt so refreshed and ready to face another week!! ——or not.
With my work schedule, I really hope I can fix my sleep cycle so I need not sleep half a day during weekends!
I need my weekends for self-improvement.
And speaking of self-improvement..
My sister and I will try to follow a Jillian Michaels exercise video in awhile.
It’s around 45 minutes but a friend said that you really will sweat a lot after it.
want need to be sexy soon!
For myself :>
Cause I love myself 🙂
YAY for loving oneself more!
Have you been doing something to reach your fitness goals?
Though we planned to jog for an hour today, we only did 30 minutes of jogging.
The important thing is that we did!!
That is actually a big improvement already.
We checked out the gym which is just a short walk away from home.
It was plain.
We were supposed to spend the entire hour there but unfortunately, they didn’t have treadmills.
My sister and I really wanted to just jog so we did a couple of laps around the block.
After jogging, we realized that we are still a long way from being fit.
We were easily tired because we are not used to jogging anymore.
Before, I even joined a fun run.
It was my first (and currently last) fun run and I managed to finish 5 kilometers in around 45 minutes!
My brother in law who happens to be a fitness coach told me that my record was actually good.
I didn’t fully jog for the entire 5 kilometers.
I sprinted, jogged and walked alternatively.
I will treat that record of mine as an inspiration for my next jogging schedule.
For now, my sister and I plan to follow the exercise videos of Jillian Michaels.
We discovered her through a friend who claims that her exercise videos are really working.
How about you?
How do you keep yourself fit? 🙂
Finally, my blog posts are up to date!
Now (3:15PM), I am currently running errands.
Having barely 4 hours of sleep really made me sleepy today.
We left the house at 6:30AM.
Had breakfast at the office and went to MICP.
Basically, I was just there.
I was just following my dad all day and doing nothing else but that.
We had lunch at SM MOA because it was on the way before heading back to the office.
Before heading back to the office though, we got the list of requirements needed for a Globe postpaid plan that I really want.
Ehem Samsung Galaxy Note 3!!
But nothing is final yet.
After getting the requirements, we bought running shoes.
Yay for exercising and dieting!
I really really want to get in shape.
After that, my sis and I just dropped off our parents at the office and went straight to our grandma’s house to get a cheque.
We headed to my dad’s office and dad asked us to encash it.
So we did.
After that, we headed back to the office and he gave me a form.
It needs to be signed by the clubhouse personnel and the barangay captain.
The clubhouse personnel was just there and it was easily signed right away.
The barangay captain however is not at the barangay hall and, as I’ve heard, is still being fetched at his prior commitment right now.
And so now we’re still waiting for him.
The staff said he’ll be here by 3PM but it is 30 minutes after 3 but there is still no sign of him.
I think when I get home, I’ll sleep right away.
