You would think I have “makeup” listed on my wish list for Christmas, right? Ironically, I don’t anymore. It’s been 2 years since I stopped wanting MORE makeup just because I have more than enough. It’s impossible to use up all the remaining ones I have right now. And more products come in every now and then because of my work—and that’s totally fine.
So I decided to get myself something useful this year. I’ve been slacking off waaaaay too much on my workouts just because. I always use “I don’t have time.” “I have too much work to finish”.
I just lost the motivation.
I put on obvious weight because I was on the pills for 6 months as directed by my ob-gyne because of my polycystic ovarian syndromes. We needed to treat it! And not it’s been 6 months, and I’m finally off it!
I’m turning 24 in 2015 and I think my metabolism is going to slow up even more if I continue my sedentary lifestyle… It’s always been a yoyo thing for me ever since.
Just a few days ago, I was at Mark’s new house and they have gym equipment lying around. I hopped onto the elliptical trainer and started going at it for about 10 minutes. I thought to myself. “Wow, I can get used to this…”
Two days after that, I found myself vlogging while driving back from the mall. With a huge box at the backseat.
Yep, I got myself an elliptical trainer. It was from Christ Sports, and it cost P5,995.00 if you’re interested in that info.
I haven’t uploaded the vlog yet, but it’s going to be up the day after tomorrow. You’ll see how myself and my sister Iza assembled the whole thing in 3 HOURS. It was so difficult, but all worth it!
At first I’d just do the usual elliptical/biking session. I do it twice a day, 30 minute sessions. I usually lose 300-500 cal per session. And then it got really boring…
That’s the thing. I don’t like monotony.
So then I got myself this SAUNA SUIT. (P225.00 Wellmansons, Villalobos St. Quiapo) And man, this changed my LIFE.
You want to sweat buckets? BUY THIS THING, IT’S AWESOME.
Last night I had a super intense session with this suit. And I thought of a new workout WITH the elliptical.
HIIT SPINNING!!!! (High Intensity Interval Training—Spinning)
Just the thought of it makes me super excited for my session later!
You know how everything is on YouTube nowadays, right? Well here’s the video of my current workout.
