Hello everyone! I have been somewhat inspired by my progress the last 68 days and since that is over it is time to proceed to new waters and continue improving some more. (read about it here)
Hello everyone. I know I know it has been forever (yet again). I have been very busy as of late. Prelim exams just ended and now is the start of the midterm season (not the exam though).
I just wanted to drop by yet again to let you guys know how things have been going with my 68-day challege with Jade.
Though I havent been updating much, I have been trying to get this challenge done (even during my busy schedules) I had to give up blogging for a while in order to accomodate everything else I had to do which includes going to the gym.
Right now am finally below the 60kg mark and it wasn’t easy getting there. I felt like I have been on this yo-yo plateau for the longest time. But finally after stopping gym and starting back to gym I got my weight to nudge a bit.
I cant wait to start making video blogs again with Kawaii Fitness. I need to focus more on this blog and getting more content up again.
Do you have any suggestions and ideas or request? Do you have a post to share with us? Please do email us at mykawaiifitness(at)gmail(dot)com
Until later!! See ya all!!
Kawaii Fitness Photo of the day:
This is a late post. I was supposed to write this yesterday but I wasn’t feeling too good. So anyway here goes. After a week or so of not being able to go to the gym to work out. I’m finally back and I went ahead and started on JAMES GRAGE REWIRED workout program.
Motivation of the day:
Today i want to share with you how I do my cheat meals. Yes MEAL not DAY. I don’t give myself a cheat day, but one cheat meal. One whole meal wherein I can just gorge on whatever the freak I want and enjoy without feeling guilty. (its easier to feel guilty if you give yourself a cheat day)
Some people think that just because Im trying to lose weight and am on a “diet” means I have to completely deprive myself. Well partly is true. You do deprive yourself, deprive yourself of processed food and junk and unhealthy stuff. Just like the quote above says, “Processed food….. extends the waistline as well.”
So yes, I deprive myself and control myself from eating JUNK FOOD and CANNED FOODS and the likes. Also right now, I know some of you who follow me on IG or are my friends on Facebook/twitter/etc… I am cutting out all my carbs (as much as possible) and eat clean and lean and mean.
Going back to topic. So, because I have to be very strict with what I eat, I always go ALL OUT with my ONCE A WEEK cheat MEAL. And last week’s cheat meal looked a little bit something like this:
As you know these are all Filipino dishes and Kare Kare is a TO DIE FOR dish! But it can also kill you since its all basically fat on fat on fat. Its pig feet (and other fatty parts) in thick peanut sauce. Oh dear lord it was so AMAZING! Best CHEAT MEAL EVER! And to top it off I didn’t gorge on unhealthy junk like burgers or pizzas, these are actual HOME COOKED TRADITIONS-ish Filipino food!!
So there I just wanted to share that with you guys. :)
How about you guys, Do you give yourself a cheat meal or a cheat day?
Which would you rather prefer?
If you were given one last meal, what would you choose to eat?
Let me know in the comment section below okay?
Motivation of the day:
I know it has been a week since my last update. going to the gym and running my online business, Khrafteesi, has been taking up a lot of my time from blogging.So today I will be giving you guys an Update of my Body stats.
If you go to the About section and under that click on the STATS AND GOALS link you will see there my previous stats. I finally got reevaluated 2 -3 days ago and I am so excited to share it with you guys!! So without further ado here are my current stats!
Dec. 05, 2013 -> May 05, 2014
Weight: 60.2kg -> 62.1kg
Skeletal Muscle Mass: 21.1kg -> 24.1kg
Body Fat Mass: 21.4kg -> 18.kg
Total Body Water: 28.4kg -> 32.3kg
Fat Free Mass: 38.8kg -> 44.1kg
Protein: 7.6kg -> 8.6kg
Mineral: 2.75kg -> 3.15kg
As you can see here, my weight actually went up. by 2kg but my skeletal muscle mass went up as well while my body fats went down! Right now I base my progress with Body fat percentage. From being 35.5% body fat, I am no 29% body fat!!! I am just so happy that something has changed with my body. Seeing this progress makes me feel even more determined to work harder. My goal is to hit 18% body fat before October comes around or before my 100 days are up. So that means more lean and clean meals for me.
Motivation of the day:
There isn’t much I can update you guys on today except that I can start boxing EVERYDAY now! Our Gym just opened its dedicated boxing area with a boxing ring and I am just so excited to try it out tomorrow!
So today was just cardio and for that I just went to my Muay Thai class. For some reason I can do offense just okay but I cannot defend to save my life. Its like I am so focused on keeping my balance, hitting the target and hitting with power but when the coach throws kicks or punches at me I just fail to block and its like I suddenly snap out of concentration and get epicly lost.
Are any of your guys doing Muay Thai? Am I the only one being like this?
Muay Thai w/ various circuits
Motivation of the day:
I have never sweated to much in my life! I was just supposed to do weights today, Shoulders, Triceps, and chest. But since a free slot opened up on the Spin studio I decided, on whim, to take the Spin class to get some cardio in my system. And my oh my I sweated like there was no tomorrow! I literally came out of the spin floor drench in sweat! As if I jad just taken a bath or something. But it was definitely worth it!
My entire body aches now.. well almost, but I’m sure tomorrow after muay Thai it will be even more sore. I just make sure to take in lots of protein and get lots of rest. I really like it that it is summer here from where I live so i can really focus on my fitness.
Anyway Im keeping this short because I really just want to sleep and rest up since tomorrow I have to do double cardio. No weights tomorrow just plain old cardio and then some conditioning through Muay Thai. YEAY!
I’m really loving the quotes photos I have been making so far. i really want to keep making my own stuff so that everything will match theme wise.
