I have this on and off relationship with the “gym”.
Way back 2007 I worshiped it for 4 months straight together with strict diet and said goodbye to 20 pounds… (I gained 15 pounds in 3 years yikes!)
Then again I started to get addicted to gym just this month! (July 2010) Why? because I have to! haha. I am trying big time here so I can have a normal diet that can be forever. Unfortunately I still need to let go some junk foods like Cheetos and Coke! plus Mc Donald meals! geesh it’s hard as hell. I only lost 3 pounds right now and I am beginning to think I am a hopeless case! hahaha kidding aside! 🙂
Moving on, when it comes to gym clothes I am not really picky. As long as I am using sports bra, NIKE gloves, towel and my music player I am all good. I am much comfortable using big T-shirts when I work out…
I feel much bigger when I am using one… it makes me feel go for the gold! 🙂 I have a lot of gym-leggings because I want to torture my self by seeing those big thighs! geesh. I love ’em but it’s too big hahaha!
I go at the gym during lunch time or after work but when I am crazy enough, I occupy both time available and it works. That was my routine way back in college. I play badminton after school then go to gym for some strength and more Cardio activities. I even ate like a bird that time which right now I am trying to bring that back… Now, don’t get me wrong. I have a balance meal… I am not the type of person who starve herself to death! it’s a big no-no. There’s always a solution to cravings!
I have a sweet tooth and chocolates are my weakness! When I crave for one, I take a bite but not finish the whole thing. I just have to taste it and I m done. It works for me plus I take multi-vitamins and even bought alkaline water purifier for water therapy. My dietitian said, water therapy is nothing if you just take plain water… it’s effective 🙂
Right now I can’t let go the wonderful RICE! I tend to eat 1-2 cups daily… I don’t want to crash diet! it’s bad for the health! I have a nice meal set each day, although I don’t eat anymore during lunch time, all I take is Starbucks’ TAZO in Mango. I am addicted to it I swear! then I have a little salad packed with me everyday to munch on instead buying at Mini-Stop for junkies 🙂
I am positive that I can do this in no time… Discipline and Determination is all I need. I am also trying to understand the art of eating so I won’t obsess anymore with lotsa fine dining experience or even if I do, I’ll think what food to order as a fuel to my body… so I am thinking to feed my self properly in most healthy way 🙂 who wants to put a wrong fuel in their beloved car anyway? 🙂
I am just happy that my bf is supportive and everyone who surrounds me! I think having a cheering squad for your goal is a great thing too! I even have a mantra for my everyday agenda 🙂
So all you dieters out there, we can do this! You don’t have to enroll with a pricey gym or join a classy-group to shed those nasty extra pounds. Just your positive thinking alone and putting your words into action will go for the win! Good Luck and stay healthy 🙂
