Singapore!

Hi there!

It’s been a while since I last posted something on this blog that is absolutely not related to getting fit and eventually didn’t even had the courage to finish what I started. Anyway, yes! I can’t wait to tell the exciting news of being deployed in Singapore for a month. Talk about being lucky to be selected as one of the representatives of my company.

What’s more exciting is that I’m going there with my dear friend whose name sounds similar to mine, hehe. We had lots of plans, tons of places to visit (which we hope we can really go to). 

Yes, I’ll update everyone after a few days. Hopefully and positively haha!

 

Adios,

Elorde Boxing Gym 

hi!

So I posted two days ago about trying KFit and yes for the first time ever on a Saturday morning, I woke up feeling motivated to go to the gym because I wasn’t able to cancel my reservation last night. Hehe. 

What I like about going at the gym early is that there are just a number of people working out. When I got there, I approached the receptionist or whatever you call that in a gym (hehe, will update once I got to know what they are really called but for the meantime, I’ll refer to them as receptionist), has no idea at all what KFit is! She’s not aware how it works and all she knows is that only in their Makati branch has KFit partnership. Good thing though that she has also read that yesterday and I explained everything to her. Then finally she got a text message from her boss saying that I will be coming at 8 am for my session.

I was assigned to kuya Ian (yata), then he told me to do some stretching first and then run for 10 minutes. After the run, we already do the basic punches: jab, hook and uppercut. Swear that I already am sweating a lot and I’m starting to hate boxing, but I need to do what is needed to do. 

Overall, I liked boxing but I don’t think I can do boxing every single day just to lose weight! So I was thinking of doing boxing either every weekend or every after day.

KFit in the Philippines

Hi!

Just three days ago, I posted about working out at home by following the 30 day shred challenge workout, but when KFit emailed me today that I can already download their application via google play or app store, I didn’t hesitate to download it immediately. 

Maybe you’ve already heard what KFit is, since they’ve been advertising it since last month on facebook. For the sake of those who are not aware what it is, here’s a brief background of KFit.

What is KFit?

KFit gets you into the best fitness studions, classes and gyms in your city. Get access to unlimited group fitness classes and activities with just one monthly membership. Transform your workouts. 

How do I get a KFit membership?

To become a Kfit member, all you need to do is sign up for the invite list at http://www.kfit.com. once uou receive an invitation to claim your account, you can register your personal details and purchase your monthly KFit membership either with a credit or debit card.

Yes! You read that right! You can have a complete and unlimited access to any partner studios of KFit! The catch is, you will only need to pay 999/monthly for your subscription and you can go to the gym anytime you want. The best part here is that you can also pay via debit card, which pretty much suits me since I don’t have a credit card and I don’t really have plans on getting one. 

I took screenshots of the app, which you will see below.  

 Above are the activites you can try out.

   
You can even browse classes per day depending on your preferred time slot. *Note: It is important to reserve a slot for this. You can reserve a slot for a maximum of 1 week.

I already reserved slots till Thursday! 


Can’t wait to start my KFit journey! For this week I chose boxing first. The only downside I guess in this app is that you can only visit a certain gym up to 5 visits/month only. But that’s okay if you’re up for an adventure like me! HAHA. 

Will update everyone soon on my KFIt journey.

30 Day Shred Workout

hi! 

Lately, most of my friends are telling me that I gained a lot this year. I admit I find it a bit offensive and I easily get annoyed when people comment on my weight. But I’ve been really, really struggling on losing weight since I was a kid. Every summer I always ended up adding a kilo on the scale. And before I even knew it, I already am weighing 78 kg! WTF right? I’m on the obese level already. *cries in the corner* Although my co-workers likes my chubbiness a lot because they can just hug me whenever possible like I’m a human teddy bear or something, I on the other side, am stressing out on the numbers that our weighing scale shows me, and in return, I just ended up eating more…and more…and more.

I just realized that I’m being fatter and fatter day after day, months after months, so I finally decided to make a move. I downloaded a less than 30 minute video workout on Youtube hoping that even though I will just exercise for 30 minutes every single day, it can make a huge difference on my lifestyle. I know that I won’t lose weight fast but at least one kg per week (I’m feeling positive here!) is fine with me. You can check it put if you also want to exercise without hitting the gym and spending money working out for 2 hours a day! Just try searching on Youtube 30 Day Shred Workout by Jillian Michaels or try clicking this link http://youtu.be/1Pc-NizMgg8.

  
Screenshot of the video. 

Oh, and I just started my workout yesterday and today’s my second day. After 10 days, I will weigh in and tell my results afterwards. I must endure all the pain and stop my cravings for sweet foods, sodas, junkies, for a fitter and healthier me. On the brighter side, I am now cutting off having frappes on Starbucks, because I know it’s one of the factors why I easily gained weight that much. 
Will be back again after 10 days for my result.

Adios! Ciao! 🙂

Plan Eat Program

Hi! So after a week of trying to eat less but actually ended up eating more, I’ve decided to order on one of the healthy delivery foods out there in the Metro, the Plan:Eat Program. It’s actually a first time for me to do such thing, and I think I like it.

After searching for that perfect (I know I’m exaggerating a bit), affordable diet meal, I came across Plan:Eat. They offer a week supply of food for 1300 pesos inclusive of delivery charge! That’s around 260 pesos worth of meals a day. Quite a good catch, I say!

For today’s meal, I have the following:

  • Breakfast – red velvet and cream cheese muffin
  • AM Snack – one pc banana
  • Lunch – chicken alfredo pasta
  • PM Snack – maja blanca
  • Dinner – pork sriracha bbq w/ chopsuey and brown rice.

 
I’m so excited to eat healthy and choose Plan: Eat program. Although I’m not expecting results right away, at least, I know, somehow, something’s changing. Haha! 

I attached below a screenshot of their planned meals for this week:

 
So if in case any of you are interested to try out their program, I suggest you contact them as early as Wednesday or even today to inquire regarding the details of their meals. Don’t forget to check out their instagram. @planeat_program

Toodles! 💋💋💋  

Hong Kong

hi there!

So I’ve always wanted to travel abroad with my buddies and that time finally came this month! We already planned about this trip way, way back. But after being employed at Deloitte, I never thought I would still be going there. haha! 

And just when I thought I wouldn’t be able to come, days before the flight, my manager approved my so-called vacation leave and hurray I can enjoy with my friends.

When I told my dad I’m going via taxi to the airport, he presented himself to fetch me instead. So my dad fetch me and went to the airport with me (somehow supportive dad this time). Yas! 

   

ready on board.

 
A groufie prior to getting inside the plane! Haha. This is it!

   
Girls groufie. And at least this one is my most favourite shot.

 
Finally after around an hour or so, touchdown HongKong! 

   

 
After arriving at Hong Kong International Airport, we’ve decided to take the bus instead of the MTR since we have so many baggage with us. 

   
We bought the octopus card and had it loaded. There are a lot of perks when using this one. First is you can use it to any mode of transportation there is in Hong Kong, bus and MTR, but of course, not taxi.

    
We had a hard time finding the hotel because the sign of the hotel around the corner was misleading! And it was even raining when we get there. Uffa. When we finally got to the hotel, unfortunately, we still cant go inside our hotel room so we decided to go outside first and eat something for lunch.

 And voila, we ended up eating noodles.

   

Next stop was to explore the hotel, the mall and other landmarks near the hotel. We ended up going here, which I forgot what it was called. Anyway, we weren’t able to enter because it was close during Sundays.

    
After an hour of roaming around the hotel’s vicinity, we went back and finally checked in our assigned room. And an elevator selfie is a must must must!

 
Since it was raining really hard, and the weather was so unpredictable, we just took the MTR and see where we can go.

 
Tsuen Wan West MTR station groufie, the station near L Hotel  
    
And so, all of our shots during Day 1 was spent mostly on the different stations there are in Hong Kong.

 
While searching for the Avenue of Stars, it started raining again so we stopped for a few minutes.

   
Finally Avenue of Stars

    
    
    
   
Will post my second day at HK soon and perhaps an update of this one. Hihi.

Love love,

A New Chapter of My Life: Working Girl

As others are busy buying their graduation dress or just bumming off before graduation day, here I am, back to where it all began, and now, not only as an intern, but as a Junior Associate, finally!

I still can’t believe how it was so easy for me to get a job, without even applying for it. Well of course, I did work hard for this. I was an intern in this company for like 4 months, since November last year. And now, I’m finally employed at one of the top Auditing Firms in the Philippines, and so is around the globe.

So how was my first day, really? Nothing much to say. Funny because tomorrow, I will ask for a leave already, since it is our graduation orientation, and baccalaureate mass. Then on Monday, I will be absent again because it is my big day, my graduation day. Then, next, next week, I will ask for a leave again because we’re going to Boracay, with my ate and friends. Then, perhaps, if I will be granted a leave, again, I might go overseas.

Ha-ha! I’m just a newbie and all I wanted is a leave already! Hmmm.

Anyways, I’m still thankful for this opportunity. And today, my new journey, a new chapter of my life begins.
