We make up so many excuses why we can't exercise such as I can't afford to go to the gym or I don't have the time. We all have reasons for not exercising but it all comes down to time management and choices. The last few months I have made working out as part of my routine. I make sure to exercise in the morning so I feel more energised and accomplished afterwards. I also chose to sign up to 2 different gyms which is quite hefty on my pocket but I made sure I include in my monthly budget. However, you don't need to go to a gym to workout. You can easily just do it in the comfort of your own home or even in the park. These things shouldn't hinder you from working out. It all comes down to choice. Today, I wanted to sleep in as I was knackered after doing 3 long day shifts at work. Exercise was not part of my plan today because of that. But my boyfriend woke me up today to go out and exercise. I'm glad I did. It felt good even if it was only for a short time. If you want to exercise, you'll make the time.
It's been a while since I felt happy to take a photo of my outfit let alone post it on my social media. And if I did post any I made sure I wore black so my flabby tummy wasn't so noticeable. Since I started a healthier and fitter lifestyle my mood has improved a lot. I have also been more confident wearing nice fitted clothes again. I mean I couldn't buy nice clothes cause they just wouldn't fit and I would just end up being upset. Granted I'm not quite there yet with my goal weight but I'm happy with my progress so far.
A few months ago, you would never have seen a full body post of me on social media. Let alone showing a bit of skin on my tummy. The last two months have been a game changer. I decided to turn my life around and change my bad eating habits as well as stopped being in denial about my weight gain. I decided to follow a healthier and fitter lifestyle so I joined a health and fitness programme and I'm about to start my phase 3 (third month) of this journey. Since starting the programme, my confidence have grown so much. I feel like my old self again. I can actually picture myself looking like how I used to back when I was happy and confident. When I gained weight, I couldn't even picture myself in a way that I want to look like. I know some people like to preach about body confidence and loving your body but how can you when you're not happy? It's taken me a long time to do something about my health but I'm glad I started and not only do I feel confident again but I feel healthier and better. I don't feel out of breath anymore when climbing the stairs. I don't feel lethargic anymore. Besides feeling confident I'm doing this change because I love myself that I don't want to be ill from all the unhealthy eating habits that I used to do.
I've been quiet on my feed lately but not on stories so make sure to watch that. But just a little update for those of you that are interested in my weight loss journey so far - I have now lost 7.5kg in total! I have been posting regularly on my YouTube channel every Monday at 19:00 GMT+1. I'm going to mainly focus on health and fitness on my YouTube channel for now and occasionally post beauty and fashion videos every now and again. . . . . . . . . . . #igersuk #weightloss #diet #food #blogger #foodblogger #whatieatinaday #foodporn #healthy #transformation #fit #health #gym #foody #protein #healthyliving #dieting #myweightlossjourney #fblogger #fattofit #fattofitjourney #lifestylechange #musclefood #musclefooduk #dotheunthinkable #thinkdirtyeatclean
For the past couple of years, I have not been facing my challenges the way I should have. I often found myself running away from them and for most of the time just forgetting about them completely. For the past couple of months however, I am learning to face and push back against these odds. I realised that things doesn't get easier, but you must get stronger. This one is for facing your challenges. This one is for getting stronger. This one is for becoming the happiest version of yourself. It's taken me a long time to film another look book video as I've been conscious about my weight gain in the last few years. Yesterday, I posted my first plus size fashion look book on YouTube. It took a lot of courage to do this. But I'm so grateful to have amazing and supportive subscribers cheering me on my journey. The link to the look book is on my bio. #lovetheskinyourein #plussize #plussizefashion #healgrowglow #fashionista #fashionblogger #bblogger #blogger
So I came to realise that for me to really be able to do what I am passionate about, I need to face the adversities that faces me. I used to just turn my back against the challenges that I was not comfortable to accept and face, but behind those challenges are the things that I really want to be, things that I want to do and the things that I want to have. I have been working on myself and I am nowhere near the state where I want to be but I am getting closer to it with every effort that I put into facing my journey ahead. I hope to inspire anybody that feels the same and people that are going through their own challenges. 💕
It's nice having this much time off to just relax and even pamper myself. #instauk #filipina #asian #oriental #selfie #vscolovers #vscocam #igbeautyig
