Will I ever get 6 pack abs?

Monday, January 02, 2012

I've been doing cardio whenever I can, even added regular strength training, including crunches, but I still have a belly roll/muffin top! I've been with SP since 2006 but lately, I've gained like 3 kilo, but not all at once, gradually, but why should I gain at all!? Am I doing something wrong?

To make matters worse, I have a huge appetite and I love foods like chips and ice-cream. I do have them occasionally but for the most part, I feel safer not buying them at all.

I'm trying to do everything right but I still can't get down to a healthy BMI! I'm currently having a BMI of 25, I'm aiming to get a BMI of 20. Oh, and also I'd love some 6 pack abs to go along with it!

    WELL, IF YOU HAVE HAD A GAIN AND IT IS NOT JUST TEMPORARY, I AM WONDERING IF YOU NEED TO TRACK METICULOUSLY AND MEASURE AGAIN. IT IS EASY TO GET LAX AND NOT REALIZE WE TAKE IN MORE THAN WE THINK. AND FOR THE CHIPS AND ICE CREAM ESPECIALLY. HAVE YOU TRIED FROZEN YOGURT OR LOWER FAT ICE CREAM? FOR CHIPS, HAVE YOU TRIED BAKED LAYS? OR MY FAVORITE IS POP CHIPS (BBQ AND SALT & I PEPPER FLAVORS). I HAVE TO THINK THAT IS WHERE IT MAY BE FROM. I ALSO WONDER IF YOU ARE TRYING FOR A BMI THAT IS TO LOW? DID YOU CHECK IT OUT ON SPARKPEOPLE BMI CALCULATOR? ALSO, MUFFIN TOP MIGHT REQUIRE A SPECIFIC SPOT EXERCISE YOU NEED TO DO TO IMPROVE...CHECK IT OUT IN THE EXERCISE SECTION.
I GIVE YOU SUCH CREDIT FOR BEING HERE SO LONG, YOU HAVE A TRUE COMMITMENT.
I WISH YOU BEST WISHES AND CONTINUED SUCCESS.

I love my Latin Dance DVD!

Sunday, January 01, 2012

I bought it like 2 years ago. It's one of those 10 minute segment ones. I chose 3 segments for my workout today (which means a 30 minute workout) and I danced away. It was soooo much fun! I am still aching a little from my 50 minute Pilates workout on Thursday.

So I knew if I did Pilates again or even some ab work, it'll hurt too much to continue, so I decided to do some cardio. It was a very hot day and I didn't feel like aerobics much, then I thought, what about a little Latin dance.

So, I took out this Latin Dance DVD, and danced away! I'll have to add more dance DVDs to my collection! It was so much fun that it didn't even feel like I was working my body!

Still sore after workout on Thursday!

Saturday, December 31, 2011

I did a 50 minute Pilates workout DVD on Thursday, and I'm still sore today. I could hardly sleep last night because I was so sore. So, today is Saturday and I'm still too sore for another session. I wanted to go for a short walk today but it was way too hot to step outside.

So, naughty me saw a movie on DVD in air-conditioned comfort at home........ahhhh!

Maybe tomorrow, I'll see if I'm not so sore, maybe another session but a shorter one........

Added another Pilates DVD to my collection!

Thursday, December 29, 2011

Well, I bought it the other day and decided to do it today instead of heading out for a walk. For some reason, I didn't feel like going out today and I was eager to try this new DVD out! Plus the park was full of footballers, my head has been hit by their stupid balls too many times, it's so annoying!

Anyways, the new Pilates DVD had many familiar moves but it was still a little different from what I already have. It's one of those 10 minute workouts ones, with 5 segments, I did all 5 segments, and I sweated a little. I could do 95% of the moves all except one abs one, like a V-sit one, that I found too challenging.

Well, I'm slowly easing into the exercise, after spraining my knee a few months back. Next up, I'll do the Booty Barre DVD! Also a recent addition but I haven't done it but I've seen it and it's definitely the most challenging one in my collection! Wish me luck!

A bit if comfort in ice-cream!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

I made a small blunder today, that made my Mom mad at me. What's worse is, it IS my fault! I'm so ashamed of myself I'm not even going to share what I did!

So, here I am, with a small portion of ice-cream. I feel a teeny bit better after eating it but not much.........
