yep...bought a few stuffs from Toby's Glorietta: a pair of 3-lb dumbels, a yoga mat and a waist wrap. (LOLz) Can i really be this serious about losing weight? I've been trying to limit myself from eating too much, most esp. rice and sweets that's why for a few weeks now, i'm on a no-rice diet (unless i'm at home in the province where i just can't say NO to my aunt's cooking) and i've been drinking a meal-replacement chocolate shake. I was able to lose a few lbs already but now i wanted to get rid of some flabs from my arms and to at least take a few more inches from my waist.
my mom's a trainer in a gym and also teaches bellydancing, cardio funk, taebo, etc. back in the province...while moi, on the contrary, only spend less than an hour in the threadmill and just hit the sauna after. if i go to the gym before coming in to work, i honestly think that i spend more time applying makeup than my actual working out-hours. there are even days when i just go straight to the shower, just so i can tell my mom that i dropped by the gym. (hopefully she's not gonna read this post)
a month from now, a good friend of mine's getting married and i'm one of her bridesmaids. yep...i'm one of those "always-a-bridesmaid-never-a-bride" ladies. (don't get me wrong..i am not that desperate to get married......YET! Lol) and so, mom started harassing me to go back to the gym and work-out. she even made me a "program" that i am to do at least 3x a week so i can lose a few more pounds from my arms and tummy. i do have a 26-inch waist, no love-handles (on the sides) but my tummy can grow as much as that of a 3-month pregnant woman after a hearty meal. my guy friends tell me that i eat like a construction worker because i can finish 2-3 cups of rice and aside from that, i don't watch my meat-intake. and aside from that, i'm a sucker for sweets and potato chips.
i tried the program mom made for me and oh man...i almost can't get myself out of the bed when i woke up. I felt sore all over that i was so tempted to skip work. my arms, legs and tummy hurt so much that a slight cough made me cringe and curse like hell. of course, i know that there's no easy way to lose these flabs...unless i have lots of moolah and just go under a knife and let a good surgeon take them away. heheeh. (oh, how i wish...)
anyways...i know Mom knows best and i agree that i do need to lose a few more pounds but geesh...does it really have to hurt like that?
