When I went back to getting fit only had this in mind:


I started thinking about the serious change during the week of March 25. For the past few days, I’ve been feeling happy, bouncy, and proud because I can feel changes already. And then I realized, this is the fourth week already.

The changes:

  1. Water. I’ve been loyal to drinking water more than ever. The summer heat is helping me realize that. At work, I usually do three refills of the Nestea litro tumbler within the day.
  2. Portion control. It’s a tough challenge being with people who enjoy eating as much as I do.  It’d be rude to say “no thanks” always. So I just take everyday as an opportunity for me to exercise control.  A little bit of this, a little bit of that…
  3. I do not starve myself. I eat more often, this time healthy foods like bananas, crackers, and, yeah, bananas. Gives you the feeling of fullness.
  4. I make it a point that I continue my weekly exercises. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays are me time, as much as possible I do my exercise after work hours, while Thursdays and Fridays are days when I prepare myself for my Saturday classes, mostly readings and essays.

Most tips would recommend having an ideal body that can serve as your inspiration. In an instant, she came to mind:

Just to remind everyone, she’s 43. (Yes, I’m not lying.)

Apparently, mine’s abs-ent. Needs a lot of umph.


More baby fats to burn.

How about you? Who’s your abs-piration? 😉
