Even though Summer is over, there is no excuse to not stay in shape. Of course I love wearing oversized sweaters to hide my fat but I still feel fat under the sweater. I’ve been trying to get back in shape for a month and to me, honestly I didn’t do much. I still eat chocolate and candy, I don’t sweat when I do my workout, I don’t get 7-8 hours of sleep. But a couple of things that has motivated me to get back in shape is Lauren Conrad and a honest friend.
I’m a fan of Lauren Conrad (for those who don’t know, she’s from MTV show Laguna Beach and The Hills) and I saw her post on my Facebook newsfeed about tips on losing weight and being healthy. I’ll post up the link from her Get Fit blog once I find it. One of the tips was to drink warm water with a slice of lemon 3x a day, morning, day and night before your meals because it’ll help with your digestion. Other tip is to do 100 crunches a day and 25 push ups. Yes that seems a lot so what I did was break them into sets and I did push ups on my knees. Now I do 2 sets of 30 ab workouts, and I do 3 different ab workouts. Sometimes I do more than 30. So in total I do about 180-200 and I have bumped up my push ups to 15 reps 3 sets and I throw in a glute workout as well. To top it off, I do 100+ jumping jacks, just to have some cardio.
I was complaining to my friend how I want my old body back. The lowest I have ever weighed was about 52kg. Last time I checked I was 58kg and who knows how much I weigh now. Not sure if I even want to know lol 😦 Anyways, I complained to my friend and right after I complained I went to my fridge and grabbed a onigiri. As I was about to open it and stuff it in my face, my friend told me to stop. She asked me if I was really hungry (because 5 minutes before I went to the fridge I was eating cereal lol). Everyone, please don’t confuse yourself with hunger and boredom. Also, what really helped me out from my friend was that she told me when she eats, don’t eat til you are full. Otherwise you are just stretching out your stomach. I’ve been told many times to eat until you are content, and to me, content is when I can’t eat anymore haha. But really, you just have to think skinny. When you feel like your tummy is going to explode, think about it, do you really want to keep feeding yourself until your stomach expands? No, just think that your skinny with a small tummy and don’t forget, it does take about 20 minutes for your food to come down and for you to feel content or just full (but not overly full).
Another post that needs some editing.
This is my body. Yes, those are stretch marks, the only thing that makes me feel wicked self conscious of my body. But it is what it is and I just have to keep fighting to be healthy and fit.
