Strengthening My Core

"Chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken." That was by Warren Buffet.

I have to relate that to how I eat the past weeks. I have not been eating mindfully. Let me rephrase that. I have been eating mindfully but always telling myself I will start the no-chips, less-carbo diet tomorrow. That is not good. Let me put discipline before I get startled with my weight. So far I'm still good. BMI is within range. Fat mass had gone down to almost 2 lbs. But lapses in eating junk foods are not good. Once in a while, sure, but it's getting more frequent.

I was asked by one of the trainers at my gym to try their core exercises. I think it's one of the requirements there to ask a client to try their exercise for the day. I obliged since this is for free and I can very well use this. It didn't take long.

I now have new exercises to do to strengthen my core. There's one exercise I found really hard to do and that is the side plank with leg lift. Boy, it was hard for me.

I have also checked for more core exercises.

This should be easier for me.

It's a rainy Saturday morning. We will just staying home today. I'll discipline myself with so much eating the bad foods. I will do some of these core exercises for an hour.

Happy weekend!
