Ladies, how are you this Monday morning?
Last week on Monday I started doing my Zumba with the aim of bringing my sexy back, lol ... its really more than that.
On a serious note: I have been feeling very sluggish and bloated and as a result my energy levels have been very low... moods were just terrible, I just felt very ill. On Sunday last week when I was busy doing spring cleaning at home I came across my body scale. Immediately I felt very sick... feeling guilty for so many reasons but hopped on regardless cause I have not been monitoring my weight for a while (3months to be specific). Discovery was that, I have gained so much on this period and I was very hurt because I am the one who did that to myself.
I love my food and all I need to do is just limit the portions and exercise consistently. I am very lazy to exercise because we don’t have a gym place close to where I live and exercising at home alone is even much difficult. I bought Zumba and Taebo cds with the hope that I’ll be a able to just do it on my own but failed dismal.
After realising I have been piling up weight slowly but surely. I decided to try out Zumbaring at home on my own and just be on a quest to finish a Zumba 10 days accelerated program. Today, I'm on my 8th day having commited to this program. I have been waking up at 5:30am and just dance for 60minutes and then prepare to go to work.
In one of the days, I was unable to do the hour that I normally use for my Zumba dance but decided to do a 20minutes express routine instead of not exercising at all. So I feel like im on top of things for now and I have been tweaking everything to suit my needs.
Before I started this 10days accelerated program, I have been indulging in all sorts of junk. I love savoury foods and i'm not a sweet tooth person. My guilty pleasures are a packet of crisps, meat and bread.
All I am saying in this post that even though it is winter, no gym place around or not having a gym partner to motivate us, we can do this on our own even if there is no one to help us along. All we need is determination, focus and having a clear purpose and goal to achieve consistent exercise routine and managing our weight.
My quest is to loose at least 40kgs before summer and so far from this challenge I have lost 3.8kgs. Continuing like I have been doing in the past week, I will get to my destination by summer.
Id be very much pleased if you could advise on how I could stay focussed and avoid to slip, I have been on this road before but I don’t seem to be able to finish the way I start the race. I slipped before due to lack of motivation and just gave up before the race was over.
Lets get talking girls, how do you stay in shape even if it is winter???
This is what we need to be eating, even though it is hard!!!
Lets getting moving and stay healthy ladies :)
