Gaining weight is too easy but losing weight needs us to sweat out!
I was 59-60kgs when the year started! I was challenged to lose weight when I could not use my old pants and clothes!
Sharing you the tools that motivate me to stand up and do an exercise at home only! Again at home only – because we need to “stay home”. This coronavirus is challenging our fitness habit :-).
Now I am 57kgs, still trying to push harder since I wanted to hit 54kgs.
Here are my exercise motivation trigger tools:
I put a mirror on my working table to see how my looks are going. Oh, when I see those little fats on it. I always talk to myself – I can look better than this. I need to lose weight! Aja kudasay!
2. Weighing Scale
The weighing scale is very important it helps me to be mindful of my weight and my eating habit. It’s easy to gain weight but difficult to lose weight. It needs you to move your body and burn some fats. I was not successful in doing it every day yet trying to at least do thrice a week – better than nothing at all.
I feel threatened when my weight reaches 58kgs. So, I do check my weight often.
3. Fitness Smartwatch
My husband gave me a fitness smartwatch. It helped me a lot. I had a good exercise habit when I first had it, January this year. In fact, after a month I reached 55kgs. But, I went out of my way when the coronavirus spiked.
I learned that If I make 4000 walks a day, I can burn about 200 calories which is equivalent to a cup of rice. I can reach that 8000 walks a day when I first had my smartwatch! Oh, I need to do it again these months. 🙂
You gotta sit all day and have some food while working! 🙂 We must watch this when we are working at home.
Now, I am trying again to reach my goal of 54kgs after two months. I am counting Day 1 for this.
For Day 2; Stay tuned!
