Fitness Check In #7: It’s All About The Food

It’s been a year since I started this journey and you know what? I progressed and got stuck, then progressed again and now I’m half stuck. It’s like 2 steps forward, 1 step back. Is this only normal? Can’t we just march on without slumps? Guess I’m a weak human after all. I’ve been maintaining… Read more »

Fitness Check In #6

My first fitness post in 2016! I must say that it’s true. What is? The gym is so packed in the beginning of the year! November and December were so quiet, I could have the whole gym to myself. Now, I gotta wait to use the machine? Crazy. Let’s see how long this lasts. I’m… Read more »

Fitness Check In #5

It’s been more than 3 months since my last update. 3 months ago, I had trouble eating clean. Now, I still do (HAHA!), but with less struggle. If I can’t eat clean 90% of the time, then maybe I’ll just start with more than 50% of the time, then 75% of the time? Sometimes I’m… Read more »

Getting Rid of Clothes

Remember my post about wanting to get on board the Capsule Wardrobe ship? Well, the hardest part, for me, is saying goodbye. I thought it would be easy, because I’m not sentimental.

Fitness Check In #4

It’s been about 6 months since I started working out. I had my first baby in October 2007 and got back in shape pretty fast. It’s probably because it’s only my first pregnancy, and I was also much younger. Then, 2 years later, after the second pregnancy, it was tougher to get back in shape…. Read more »

Some Non Makeup Items I’ve Been Loving Lately

I am an accessories person. I love my shoes, my rings, my earrings, my bangles, my watches and my necklaces. However, since I have to carry Ashton around, I’ve minimized wearing necklaces (he has a very strong grip and pull!) and dangling earrings to avoid unwanted accidents. I’ve been working out regularly as well, and… Read more »

Fitness Check In #3

Know when to rest. Listen to your body. That’s what I’ve learned from the past couple of months. I’ve been training pretty hard for a while, 6 days a week, crazy intense cardio (HIIT and Tabata), crazy heavy lifting, and the improvement to my strength and stamina kept me going. I was hooked! Then, maybe… Read more »

Fitness Journey Check in #2

Where has the time gone eh? It’s already half way through 2015! My new year resolution was to get fitter and stronger, and with all the hard work put in, I’m happy to report that progress is there! I’ve never been super active my entire life. When I wanted to fit into a smaller sized… Read more »
