Fitness Check In #10: Winging It and Full On Rant

Since December last year, I have been just living my life, not being strict with food or calorie intake. I didn’t monitor what I ate, but just followed my gut, literally. Hah! If I ate too much yesterday, then I’d eat less today. If I ate like a pig for a few days, then I’d… Read more »

Remember I talked about my struggle with food in the last post?

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 »

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 »

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 »
