We all know that looking good brings about confidence. The kind of confidence that allows us to face challenges and perform exceptionally well under extreme pressure. Just like the enormous pressure and challenges faced by our Miss Philippines Earth candidates.
That’s why looking good for these wonderful ladies begin with healthy living. This includes an active lifestyle complemented with the right kind of food and necessary supplements — like mySlim.
To further emphasize the importance of being fit and living right, mySlim recently hosted an event for the media featuring some of the early favorites to win this year’s Miss Philippines Earth beauty pageant.
Either you do something with passion or do nothing at all.
Passion is a powerful thing. The only catch is that, as much as passion is an amazing thing, it can also be destructive if applied wrongly.
Take Vanessa, for example. Being a party girl for quite sometime — to the point of abuse — meant that all her efforts and passion were directed solely to this unhealthy lifestyle. Fortunately for her, she came to her senses just in time and still had the opportunity to turn her life around and change for the better, using that very same passion to make a complete 180-degree turn.
We all want to get fit and healthy. Some just lack the motivation. It’s not even a reason of time because one can always find a window, however busy, to put in the needed work.
The one thing that is usually the case which keeps us from doing the things we must do is MOTIVATION.
Now, how or where you get that needed motivation is really up to you. Some are driven by his/her desire to grow old with family… some are motivated to get healthy because of the demands of work. Others get in shape merely for the love of doing it.
We get discouraged and feel like giving up sometimes… especially when we are faced with seemingly insurmountable challenges and setbacks. But all it takes to get us right back on track is a good look around to see that other people have bigger mountains to move and harder obstacles to overcome — and yet they continue to press on.
It has been said time and again… What you lack physically, you make up for in heart. It sounds so cliché already and yet there is a reason why it lingers on — because the saying holds true.
Summer is just around the corner. Gyms are packed with people getting their bodies ready for the beach and some fun under the sun.
Of course, working out and lifting weights are great and all, but there are a couple of things one can additionally do in order to hasten the shedding of fat and achieving your goal in no time.
I, likewise, have started putting in more time doing cardio and a good amount of circuit training. But apart from that, I’ve become more conscious of the kinds of food I eat and also the particular times of the day I can enjoy them. Because, in case you aren’t aware yet, as much as physical activities are important, diet plays a very very big part in any weight loss program.
Those who read my blog and follow me on Instagram and Twitter know that I am a fitness buff and a gym rat. I easily get paranoid when it comes to gaining weight and when I slightly veer off my usual diet.
The reason why I am extra cautious and extremely careful not to gain a significant amount of weight is because I was incredibly out of shape not too long ago.
It’s true! For the benefit of those who thought I was this fit my whole life, you’d probably be amused to know that sometime back in 2010 (more or less), I weighed 185 lbs! For someone who merely stands 5’6″ tall, 185 lbs. is not at all good… any way you look at it.
So, when I decided to hit the gym and dedicated myself to getting healthy and fit, I promised to press on and never look back.
In a span of 6 months, I achieved my goal and reached my ideal weight of 138 lbs.
But, anyone would be wise to know that fitness NOT a goal. It is a lifestyle… a way of life. And for some, the real struggle is not in the process of losing weight, but in the never ending battle of keeping the weight in check. This is usually the case for people like me who easily gain. That’s why being paranoid and extremely careful of my diet is more often a necessity.
And with this constant fight against the flab, I try to find new ways to help make the battle a little bit easier.
Luckily, I discovered something that effectively aides in maintaining my weight and allows me to indulge a little bit more in the kinds of food I would normally try to avoid on a regular basis.
