I don’t blog a lot lately. I do get a writer’s block sometimes. Yes, feeling writer lang. Haha. But being on blog hiatus for days can have its advantages. Because now you have lots of stories to tell!
Anyway, what have I been up to lately? Nothing much but I got to experience going to the gym for the first time last Tuesday. It’s one of the perks I have for working in Accenture. I get to use the gym for free and they also have a gym instructor to help you out. I wouldn’t imagine myself doing everything on my own because I have zero knowledge on what to do inside a gym. I don’t even know how to operate a treadmill. Haha.
I went there together with three of my other colleagues. I am proud of myself because I was the one who had the idea of going to the gym last week. Buti nung niyaya ko sila, game sila because I don’t really want to be alone. We started out with 25 minutes of cardio, stretching, ab excercise, and then lifting weights. After that, we used their various gym equipments, I don’t know what they are called.
It felt really good after. I was talking with Arbs kanina after our second gym session and we both feel refreshed after. If some people are nanghihina, kami naman nagiging hyper. Sarap ng pakiramdam.
I hope I can maintain this and can go to the gym 3x a week. I do feel sore the morning after especially my legs. I find it really hard to board the bus when I went home. Will go back again tomorrow! :)
Before I started this active lifestyle thing, I’ve been reading other blogs and articles in the internet about staying fit. Telling everyone is a good thing because you’ll feel accountable for it. You have to keep them updated. And now through this blog, I can.
I kind of also watch what I eat. And when I say “kind of”, it means I’m not really strict about it because I don’t want to starve myself. I still do eat normally and Sundays is my cheat day. Here are some of the changes I made to my diet recently. It’s nothing much but I think it does makes sense:
- I don’t drink coke anymore.
- I don’t eat chips anymore (Yes!).
- I drink hot natural tea (not milk tea!) twice a day.
