"Health...It is the general condition of a person's mind and body"

We all have the chance to be healthy. There are a lot of options out there and the possibilities are limitless. It is up to us whether we choose to live a healthy lifestyle now or suffer the pain of regret later.

I am 23 years old and I'm underweight. You might say "Wow, what a problem! Been trying to lose a few pounds and you tell me you want to gain some? The nerve!" I'm not saying I want to be fat or I don't want to be thin. I'm just saying "I want to be healthy." Few years back, I tried food supplements and went to the gym for weight training. I did that for 3mos but unfortunately, nothing worked. So I thought, maybe I just need to enjoy my body right now and maybe I'll be healthier then. Well what can I say I'm not really a healthy eater. In fact there are times when I just have to control myself not to eat out at fast food chains. *sighs* So my tummy got bigger compared to what it was 2 years ago. But I'm still underweight. So I challenged myself at the start of the year to be fit and stay fit as I also try (again) to gain some weight. #fitspiration #healthspiration


Here's what I decided to do. Continuously take little steps.. I wont go on a diet because I don't want to lose more weight. Well... maybe I SHOULD go on a much healthier diet. Opt for a pineapple juice instead of Coke, a granola bar instead of a chocolate bar (not even sure yet if granola bars are a healthier option :P), and lots of fruits instead of eating burgers and pizza. *sniffs* As of now, I'm good with PJ and granola but not so on the pizza. I think I've already had more than a couple of rounds myself for the month of February. sheeesh. FIGHT THE TEMPTATION, GIRL! Aside from the MUCH healthier diet, I decided to work out. Don't really want to pay for gym memberships anymore, so I work out at home. Thank you technology for making our lives easier. I have an app for daily workouts... so I do cardio, ab and butt workouts 3-4 days in a week. Also, I do a fun dance workout too! And I do all of that stuff in my room for about 30min to an hour. I listen to beats such as Kanye West's Stronger and Chris Brown's Look at me now to get me going while I workout. Tried running in the morning but uhhh its been pretty cold here lately so I guess maybe in summer :P 

So after a month of that, I gained 2kgs! Or maybe that's just the pizza talking. Haha! I guess you just really need to think of your well-being and not focus so much about losing (or in my case, gaining) weight. Have fun while you're doing it! Surround yourself with positive thoughts and inspiring pictures to get you on the go. Right now, I'm still pushing myself to continue with the workout (w/ increasing reps of course) and try my very best to keep the pizza's to a minimum. Maybe when I was in college I didn't have that much patience and wanted results results right away. I learned that patience is key. Dont stop coz you''ll have to start over again. Dont forget the reason why you're doing this. I decided to do this constantly and not just now. A healthy lifestyle is for a healthier you. Don't forget to drink plenty of water and to put a towel on your back so you wont get sick like I did 2 wks ago. tsk


So if you also want to have a healthier body but don't really have an idea on what to do or where to start, seek the help of a professional. There are a lot of gyms out there and you can invite you're friends so you'll get to have more fun. Some gyms even offer discounts for a group of 5. Or if you're like me, you can just work out at home and follow a fitness routine on youtube. Catherine's fitness blog is one of my recent favorite so please check it out and get some inspiration like I did. I tell you, the possibilities are endless! 

Lets stop making excuses, lets get up and get our body moving. Our bodies will thank us later for this.
