Day 4 fasting

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

I have exercised during 3 out 4 days of fasting. A 30 minutes bike ride and two half a mile swims.

They weren't bad. I did these about an hour before break fast time so, I wasn't thirsty for long.

My weight has continued to drop steadily. About 1 to 1.5 lbs a week the past 4 weeks. My body is still toning up pretty well especially around my arms, torso and lower legs.

Have to keep it up.

Ramadan 1435H . 2014

Sunday, June 29, 2014

Well, fasting month is here. I am looking forward to fasting. Other than religious reasons, it'll be great to get rid of toxic and whatnot from my body this month.

With fasting, I'll probably won't be working out as hard as I had these past couple of months. If I get 30 minutes 3 times a week, that's good enough. With fasting as early as 4:15am and ends around 9:15pm, there isn't much wiggle room to go to the pool before or after fasting. I'll have to go in around 7:30pm and do a short swim.

Wish me luck! I hate to derail my routine but religion is more important.


A change?

I have been swimming 3 times a week with biking or something else in between swimming days.

Until recently, my weight has stayed steady at 14 lbs over my weight before I jumped back to exercising this spring. I am finally seeing a dip in the weight this past week. I weighed myself twice this week and each was lower than the previous weigh-in.

Finally. Finally. So, all I have to do is keep chugging.

I really should stick to it.

Saturday, April 26, 2014

I decided to go back to swimming regularly for my exercise. This is after my husband kept pushing me to do it. I can't walk fast nor run due to my bad knees.

I should have listened to him long ago.

I have been to three full swimming sessions so far and I feeling much better than I was 1-2 weeks ago.

My body measurements are already back at the smallest size I was at last year (at my highest fitness peak). My body melted. I lost a lot in my face and neck, too.

To show you what I mean, the pictures below can tell my story. The one with the glasses was taken two Fridays ago. The other one was taken last night, a Friday night.

I really should have gone back to swimming much sooner.

Spring in my steps

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Now that winter has mostly passed, I need to deal with winter weight gain. Lost about 5 pounds of it so far within 1.5 weeks. It almost make me think it was only water weight but I do see more definition in my abdomen. The top two abs muscles are clearly visible again.

The baby belly will never be gone but it is smaller.

While having it completely gone might me feel better in vanity sense, I am just happy that I am active physically at the moment.

If I am active, the rest will take care of themselves. My goal is leading an active and healthy life.

    Being active gives us endorphins we don 't otherwise obtain and helps us to think more clearly.
