The saying, “The beginning is always the hardest” is not applicable to me. Losing 17 pounds in 3 months’ time was NEVER EASY.
THE PROCESS IS THE MOST DIFFICULT PART.
Here are some of the few things that I did for the past 3 months. All require Dedication to the following:
1. Healthy Diet. SWEAR NO FAST FOOD FOR 3 MONTHS. I do prepare my own food. One word would summarize my diet: S-T-E-A-M-E-D.
2. Exercise/Work Out. I do exercise 5 times a week. MW for ABS and Legs (the workout for the legs has been a problem to me, I usually hate doing it. That’s why I’ll be focusing the next 3 months to exercise lower body). TTH for upper body workout that includes the chest and back. On Fridays, I do TBW (total body workout). Usually, I exercise for 30 minutes to 1 hour and 15 minutes. It would depend on the day and to the kind of workout that I’ll be doing.
3. Having Patience. First, set goals but never be tired when you see no result. I got frustrated during the first month but I still continued and I am now enjoying the improvement.
4. Goals are important. Exercise 5 times a week for 3 months using the same workout routine that I personally created. One advised I got from the internet is to have a SCHEDULE. It is a great help. What I do is, if I have to skip today’s workout, I simply do the schedule for the next day. If you do not have a schedule, the tendency is to not just skip workout but to totally drop it. At least, if you have schedule, you’ll be reminded about your agenda.
It’s all about DEDICATION. You must be committed to do it.
As I’ve said, I’ve lost 17 pound already but I am still dissatisfied with the result. Flabby arms, bloated stomach and cellulites on my legs are still a BIG ISSUE.
However, I should commend myself for a job well done. But this would also serve as a warning that I SHOULD NOT STOP.
Sometimes, when the road gets rough we stray from the path and luxuriously does things that would never help us in the first place.
Fitness is a continuous LIFETIME process…
