Let's Dance!

I thought of doing zumba today to perk me up. I found this 10-minute dance workout in YouTube. Suits me. Easy to follow. It served as my warm-up. I hope will wear that mid rib and body hugging pants again. I will give myself three months to burn my belly fat. Haha!

Back to my core exercises. I added some core exercises not in here...just because. Once I start, the adrenalin rush makes me do more. What I find hard in this set of exercise is the "face-up pilates". Oh boy, I struggled. What seems too easy actually is not...not hard but I needed to it slowly because I feel like my thigh muscles are getting strained but I did the whole 45 seconds. I'm talking about the "toe-tap pilates". 

It was a total of 45 minutes of dance and core exercises today. Progressing! :) 

Now, it's time for mommy duties. I took a one-day leave from work because I have to attend to my daughter's school activities. Thank You, God, for giving way to let me do the things I need and want to do. 

Looking forward to a great day with my daughter! :)

I am more prepared today in my workout though I woke up a little later than I did yesterday. That means I cannot spend more than 20 minutes in my exercise because I have to prepare to work. Gotta earn a living, you know. And then Mom and Pop called. Of course I needed to stop and talk to my ever loving and generous parents. 

But one thing I do a little bragging about today is that PLANK is still my favorite. I haven't done this for months that I thought the 30 second plank will give me a hard time. But no, I did more than that. Smiley, smiley!  :)))

Plank is still my favorite. That routine really did me well. My core got firm and flabs went away. I will make them go away again. :)))

Some negative thoughts creeping on my mind when I woke up but see, I am quite hyper now. Thanks to my workout!  And the parents' call. :)))

I chose another cardio video for today which I feel better doing. Will repeat tomorrow. :) 

Happy thoughts,happy thoughts!

Back to Regular Workout

I am doing this at home. I have not been to the gym for the rest of the months because my work load has doubled. I just want to use my free time for my family, most especially my daughter, my church duties, and be with friends whenever our schedule permits.

But "no time"is not an excuse not to workout. I gained several pounds because of all the product tests I did the past months. Yes, that includes food quality check. My only exercise is walking. I purposely walk because I have to do myself a favor and at least do some cardio.

But that is not enough because I eat a lot at night. It was my stress reliever and after a day full or work,I just want to eat home-cooked food.

I'm carrying now several pounds of that carelessness. I do not want to be overweight again. Never. So even before my BMI registers I am obese, I am doing something about it.

I started my cardio exercises today. Boy, this was damn easy for me before. But I only finished like 18 minutes of this with a minute of rest for every jump exercises. 

That's alright. I will not punish myself for it. I have to start again. I did it before, I can do it better. 

I did not do it right. I slept late, straight from bed I freshened up, did cardio exercises without having light breakfast. Ergo, not enough energy. I'll do it right tomorrow. 

But I'm happy I am motivated again to do my regular workout. I will master you tomorrow.
