If there is one wish I want to happen these summer days is for me to be able to workout at least four times a week in order to achieve my flat belly goal. But heck, I have other obligations that need my attention constantly. I am not complaining, I am just saying I wish I have the luxury of time to workout as often as I can.
Right now, I am trying to get that “me time” by working out at home 3 times a week if I can. I started getting serious with my exercise since I realized that I gained 5 pounds from too much eating since December ’till January, with all those party gatherings with awesome food, I just could not resist pigging out.
I got even more determined with exercise when my blood work last month came out I had high cholesterol and is so high, 241 instead of just getting the normal numbers 90-200 level.
When I exercise, I don’t do the same routine every time I sweat, rotate the kind of workout each time and use different machines for cardio. Luckily, we got a treadmill, an elliptical and a stationery bike. Once that fire start burning, I move on to the main exercise like lifting weights using dumb bells, leg exercises or do Jillian’s HIIT.
Anyway, I am quite pleased with all those hard work I have for weeks now, I lost 2 pounds, exercise at least 2 hours or more each time and eating light during the day. Photos below is of me looking sweaty right after doing my 30-minute cardio walk/jog on the treadmill and two shots doing Jillian Michaels’ High Intensity Interval Training on Youtube.
Once goal is achieved, I will have to post my before and after photos of my belly. So wish me good luck, friends!
…. myself so sweaty after my cardio…

… I am not there yet but surely doing some progress. There is still at least three pounds need to lose and belly to shrink in two months time.
