I think it's just timely to share this life update on this blog, I've been on a diet for a week now. Add to that, I go to the gym for at least an hour everyday! It's a big struggle because of my irregular schedule as a blogger. I have to say no to some events, or compromise by attending one in the morning and then go to the gym in the afternoon or at night. I have my clothes with me the whole day in a big backpack! I also realized that I stopped my Kdrama nights for a while just to adjust. Now I am back, but I try to keep it at just 1-2 episodes per night--because I am just too tired for my gym life and also to avoid midnight snacking! It also felt like a long time since I last ate white rice and bread, but I know that I needed all these!
It's not because I hate my weight or I don't have body love, but because I am feeling sluggish and slow already. I am not getting any younger, anyway! Might as well be mindful of the things I EAT and DO with my body to make sure I grow old healthy, form good habits now, and probably these things will give me more years to follow my dreams!
Last week, I visited Philam Life's #LiveBetter Expo at the Glorietta Activity Center. In that event, I realized that being healthy is not only about a fit body. It concerns FOUR THINGS: Fitness, Food, Wellness, and Financial health. So there's physical and mental health, and also saving up for the future. ADULTING at its finest! There's just so much things to process, but I'd like to pin them all--at least--one at a time.
Visited the different sponsors booths during the expo to avail their free offers. Once completed, you get a raffle coupon for a chance to win a Garmin watch (tracker).
Gold's Gym gave away fitness magazines:
Philam Life's booth provided free consultation session on your financial priorities: Is it Wealth Creation, Healthy Living with Perks, or Income Continuation?
Sweat a little, and get a free drink and photo print in this booth. I tried the treadmill, my current favorite gym cardio. I can do this for 40 minutes, my mind just wandering around and I almost wouldn't notice the time!
And lastly, I also had, for the first time in ages, my body mass measured!
The physical therapists helped me interpret the figures regarding my weight, mass, etc... Which I usually avoided for the past decade or so! I hated seeing body measurements because I feel that it has nothing to do with who I am (HAHA I KNOW) but now I am doing this not because of vanity or because I am self conscious, but a way to see progress on my new health goals.
The event ended by the stage area, where Philam Life's celebrity endorsers Nico Bolzico, Mond Gutierrez, and Solenn Heussaff talked about fitness, self love, and their co-ambassador Wil Dasovich.
