Reality Check

Exercise and diet is a long, slow and sure way to be fit and healthy. Not just any diet, this diet should consist healthy food. I know this for a fact because I have a living example of what this vava-voom combination can do, right friend?

Other may resort to using the best weight loss pills to help make the process of slimming down faster. There are those who’d take other means like dancing, walking, running, or hula-hooping as a fitness routine rather than go to a gym and face machines. And toned down trainers.

I used to be enrolled in Zumba classes during summer. When classes started I found that I didn’t have the time to go back. Still working on my sked but I know in time I will be back. Group dancing is more fun than me dancing alone (like no one is watching) at home because in a group, you’d get embarrassed to sit and rest since everyone’s still dancing. At home when I try to dance, I’d end up sitting and taking a break on every other song in the play list. Duh.

I think I’d be devising a plan for this diet and exercise combination especially now that I will be turning a year older this week.

Reality check.

Fun Run with Friends

Yesterday at a mall where there was a big sale going on, hubby and I were eyeing the treadmills on display at a sports store. Since I have been too lazy to go out for my morning walks (I wake up 4am everyday and I’m too tired to go for a walk) I was thinking of getting a treadmill.

With a fun run with friends a few days to go, I might have to crawl my way to the finish line because I haven’t been keeping in shape for months. Ugh.

Between a treadmill and treatment for arthritis, which one would you choose?

I’d probably choose taking a walk because I don’t have to pay for it 😀

It’s Been Awhile

It has been awhile, no, it has been a long time since we last went to our family biking/walking/running bonding time.


The thule rack is dusty and so are the bikes. The kids still can’t ride without training wheels and that is something not to be proud of because they are not that young anymore.

I always tell the family, next Sunday we will go do these things again but sleep, that elusive sleep wins over more than anything including breakfast and the need to be fit.

I always tell myself, tomorrow, I will start my early morning walking routine but then either the online lure is more powerful or the bed is pulling me back to its soft comfort.

On Sunday, we will do something different and I am hoping even with the lack of preparation, my legs are up to the task even if I still feel pain from walking and hiking for two days with my school children.

Sunday Afternoon

A lot of things are vertical in this Sunday afternoon photo. I also featured a part of this set here. I don’t take much photos anymore when we come here.

sunday afternoon

This is where we love to have a run (or ok, more of walking for me). This placed used to be a bit deserted during this time a few years ago but since “running” as a sport has taken a new twist, everybody and his uncle are into it. And a lot see themselves as “experts”. Hmmm…


Since running has a lot of positive benefits (yay, shoe stores are happy!) taking this as a sport is not bad. For those who want to lose weight, running and weight loss diet is a good combination to achieve good results.And that is just one of the benefits one can get from running.


1, 2, 3, let’s go! 🙂

On a Lookout for a Running Tee

Yesterday, we went window shopping for sports apparel. It was fun looking at shoes, shirts and shorts. I thoroughly enjoy doing this even if the budget (as usual) does not allow me to get what I think I need at the moment.

Plus the fact that I still need to do more sweating (no, I will not succumb to using weight loss products) to shed off the (ugly and) excess mid-body pounds, I refuse to get that blue running tee from Nike Essentials.

Shop Nike for Shoes, Clothing & Gear. Start shopping now at www.nike.com

I want need one!!!!

Wide Open Spaces

Wide open spaces are scarce in a megapolitan like ours called Megapolitan (or Mega) Manila where traffic is ordinary especially during weekdays which is what my other entry is all about.

I am thankful then that we are just a mere 10-15 minutes away from the wide open spaces of a campus where I  spent some years for my graduate studies and where people including us, can go to during weekends for physical exercises like biking, walking, running, jogging and other sport activities. We also go there at times for a picnic lunch.

We love these kinds of weekend activities where we can have fun in wide open spaces 🙂

What about you?
