30 Day Shred

There are so many fitness DVDs and workout programs in the market. I decided to try a different program every month or every 90 days maximum depending on the length of the program. I chose 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels' for the month of July to early August. I chose this program because:
  • The great reviews I've been reading about it from people who tried it. Try to google "30DS before and after" and see the great results that others achieved.
  • It is only 20 minutes
  • Home based workout
If you are starting 30 Day Shred, please leave a comment and let me know about your progress. If you have already done it before, please share your experience. I'd love to hear from you..

How exciting! I did not know that such conferences exist. I’m planning to attend next year. I’m hoping that my blog grows bigger by then.

For those who'd give up if they did not see instant or fast results. ..
Your current body shape is a result of months if not years of eating and workout habits. How do you want to change that in few days? It needs time.
Be Patient and enjoy the journey

I'm Half Way

I started "seriously" monitoring my weight about the same time last year "June, 2011". Well, it is considered a slow progress comparing to how hard I workout. However, it is a great progress that I should be proud of comparing to how unhealthy I most of the times eat. I am just trying to emphasize on the importance of healthy eating. Workout alone does not help much. It's the combination of both.

My Success Story: Week 1

As I mentioned in my previous post "Write Your Own Success Story". I will start posting updates about my progress here on this blog. I will post every Friday and I will label the posts as "My Success Story".

My success story of week#1 : I managed to lose 1 kg by following the listed rules:

  • Drink water. Drink a minimum of 2 Liters/day 
  • Eat small balanced meals every 3-4 hours. Small = about 300-400 calories. Balanced= The meals contain a portion of protein, carbohydrate (complex), vegetable, fruit
  • Stop eating 4 hours before bedtime 
  • Workout for a minimum of 45 minutes at least 5 times a day. Make sure your heart rate is within the fat burning zone when working out
  • Avoid high in sugar/high in fat food and Soda
I was invited to a birthday party on Monday of week 1. As much as I tried hard to avoid eating cake, I honestly could not resist. It was so good and so delicious beside, who'd attend a Birthday party without having his/her share of the Birthday cake? 
I did not avoid social gatherings. Healthy lifestyle should include socializing. What I did was eating as planned "small balanced meals" during the day. I had my share of the cake in the party. I actually thought I over ate from the cake, but when I got back home. I did my Cardio worked out. Guess what? I did not gain anything! 

So, this is all what I did in week 1. It was a success. I need to lose one more kg to reach my new weight goal. I'll follow the same rules with better meal planning and harder workouts. 

What's your success story of the week?
