The coming weeks will no doubt be one of those times in my life that I will remember for the rest of my life. The succeeding blog entries will be about my journey to losing weight and to living a healthier life. 🙂
I’m in a situation where in failure is not an option. I have to lose weight because the pressure of the whole Philippines is on my shoulders. That’s all I can say right about now.
This week has been perhaps one of the most challenging weeks I’ve ever had. Everything’s starting to change again, and I’m caught in between excitement and fear. I’m scared because I don’t know what’s ahead of me, what and how much I’ll have to do, and how much pain I’m gonna have to endure. I’m excited for the outcome, of course.
I had a very intense workout from Tuesday to Saturday (May 3 – 7) this week. That’s 5 days of me working out 6 hours a day. Add to that the 2 hours I spent working out on Monday… well, that’s why I haven’t been going out recently. All I do now is go to the gym, and go home and sleep. My body really isn’t ready for that kind of physical activity, and for me to go out, well, I just physically couldn’t anymore. My whole body aches like hell, and to stand or go up the stairs makes me wince out of pain. My muscles are sore, but when I’m in the gym, I have to pretend that I’m okay so that I won’t get labeled as someone who complains a lot.
Aside from that, my diet has also taken a 180 degree turn. I can no longer eat the things that I want to eat. Unhappy food, that’s all I’ve been eating. Nothing fried, no meat, just fish, chicken, wheat bread, vegetables and fruits. That’s it!
I understand that the first couple of weeks is always the hardest, so I’m glad I’m done with week one. I hope I start getting used to this kind of regimen at the soonest. 🙂
