Yes, I got another personal project going on and this time, I got my eyes on a new fitness tracker. I’m currently using the Fitbit Charge 2 which I got in January 2017, just in time when I was starting an active life. I’ve been using this non-stop since day 1 and I’m very impressed. I ditched my fashion watches and just got some coloured straps to make it more fashionable.
Now, it’s been 2 years and the fitness tracker is in pretty good condition but my only issue now is the battery life because I noticed that I have to charge it every other day.
I keep mentioning self-care in the past months thru my channels because I believe that developing self-care habits is vital in everyone’s life, regardless of your job. We need to spend some me-time in order to bring serenity in our busy lives. I will use myself as an example – I don’t have an 8-5 job but my schedule is occupied with house chores & I too, got deadlines for each chore. In my case, cleaning, cooking & taking care of clothes are just some of the never-ending chores that I do and there are times when I feel exhausted & tired too. And at this age, I can honestly say that I believe in the saying “YOU CANNOT POUR FROM AN EMPTY CUP.”
Last August, my yoga practice turned one year and I can’t get enough of it changed me as a person, my life & well-being. I reaped the benefits of practicing, which is a lot, and it was so good that it became part of my daily routine.
Towards the end of 2017, I decided to level up my commitment to wellness and signed up for Cassey Ho’s PIIT28 fitness program. And yesterday, I finished cycle 1 and I’m ready to share my thoughts & results of her program. 🙂
It may look easy-peasy on photos & videos but nope, none of it was easy. But is it worth it? DEFINITELY. I can’t believe it’s been a year since that fateful day and yes, I’m very proud of what I’ve achieved so far. I’m also very thankful for the opportunity to turn my life around.
I’ve experienced going to shops and eyeing a very cute outfit or dress and when I wanna try it, my heart simply breaks because it’s only up to a MEDIUM size or their biggest is a size 12. It’s like I have the money to spend but nothing fits me. So what happens next (true story) is that I go out of the shop, find a coffee shop and get a slice of my favourite cake and sip my coffee. We used to joke that wala akong karapatang mamili dito (I don’t have the right to buy clothes here,) because the people are generally slim and I’m not.
One of the biggest challenges that I’ve been facing lately is my irresponsible food choices whenever we’re out especially weekends & holidays. You know the Oh-my-goodness-I-so-deserve-this-because-I-worked-out-for-3-days! feeling? Yeah, we all have that because in reality, we love the idea of rewarding ourselves and most of the time it’s with comfort food.
