Weight Loss Journey- How I lost 10 lbs of fat

Standard

So I mentioned in the past that I was the active mommy, doing boxing, bikram, running, you name it- but couldn’t lose weight. Finally, mid of December, I re-assessed my plans. This is the new design of my journey to weight loss for 2012:

1. Get a personal trainer 

2. Do cardio 45 mins to an hr 3 times a week

3. Strength training/muscle building 3x a week (with the trainer)

4. Reduce white carbs – white bread, white rice, pastries ( I do this only weekdays) I cheat during weekends.

5. Take a fat burner supplement – Oxyelite pro – the best fat burner so far which I will review in another post. This is available via Philippine supplements and Supplement Hub. Both of which you can order online in the Philippines and delivered at your doorstep, COD.

To expound even further: 

1. Getting a personal trainer- Well, I knew I was spending so much money enrolling myself to boxing, bikram and all that so I finally checked out this gym 4 blocks away from my house. The name is DNK Gym. It’s been around for more than a decade and the equipment used are above standards, with 3 treadmills, 2 cross trainer and 2 stationary bikes. I assessed the trainers who worked there, and got myself the most helpful (in my opinion during my first wks) guy- his name is Warren. The cost is 3k for 10 sessions. I also enrolled for 1 yr which I got at a very good deal (group enrollment with other people) at 8k. Breakdown:

GYM unlimited usage per month – Php 666.66

Trainer per session (1hr)- Php 300.00

Monthly cost : Php 3666.00

2. Do cardio 45 mins to an hr 3 times a week – I know, I know, I hated to run for more than 15 mins. It bores me to death. I think of work stuff and get irritated. However, with me watching TV in front of the treadmill (that’s how it’s set up in DNK), I lose track of time.  This is how I do my 45 min cardio:

5 minutes warm up- walking at 3.5 kph to 5 kph

repeat 5 times: 30 minutes

5 minutes jogging at 7 kph

1 minute- recover 5 kph walking

5 minutes running at 7 kph inclined at 3.5

5 minutes cool down

3. Strength training/muscle building 3x a week (with the trainer) – my trainer is unpredictable. Sometimes he makes me do circuit training, weight training, resistance. I will discuss this further in another post.

4. Reduce white carbs- actually helped when taking Oxyelite Pro (discussed in another post). During weekdays (M-F), I do not eat rice which is a must have on all meals if your pinoy. I eliminated pastries and white bread as well.

As soon as awake- coffee

1 glass of water

Oxyelite 1 pill

Drive to work

Mocha frap grande non-fat

Wheat biscuit (2)

water every hr until I have finished 1 liter by noon.

Lunch- whole grain wheat bread with tuna, light mayo, pepper and salt. Some days chicken, some days sardines in whole wheat bread. I would bring 2 sandwiches but would only eat 1 at lunch.

water – around 500 ml until 3pm

Eat the remaining sandwich before going home

Water again  before workout. Sometimes I drink coffee before workout.

2 hrs workout (M-W-F) – 30 mins cardio, 1.5 hrs weight training

Nightime- boiled eggs (2)

5. Take a fat burner supplement – check out my review on OXYELITE PRO

Starting weight in Dec 15, 2011 – 144 lbs

Body Fat % 36%

February 13, 2011 weigh in: 134.5 lbs

Body Fat % 29.3%

Update on Weight Loss

Standard

So I lost 2.5 lbs in 2 weeks and ver excited on my new experiment. I stopped counting calories. It just wont mix with my daily life. Work is too busy, raising 4 kids, cooking during weekends- so I stopped stressing on what I put in my mouth. I just make sure that I pacify my sweet cravings only once a week or if I do get into temptation, I work out harder which in turn makes me regret eating calorie overload so I learn.

Anyways, I track daily workouts on a calendar I see all the time. So I have on my cork board in my room and one at work. I am mixing bikram yoga now with gym (cardio and weights) and I see tractions!!!

I’m very excited about the coming weeks and can’t wait to weigh next Tuesday!

Exercising and not losing weight

Standard

If you’re one of those regularly exercising: running, walking, boxing, spinning, biking, etc on a daily basis yet not losing weight- welcome to the CLUB. In the next 30 days, I will try to experiment if it’s true that over exercising leads to plateau reaction of the body resulting to NO WEIGHT loss. For the next 30 days, I will try to only do 4 times per week of either BIKRAM or Boxing. More to come…
