Monthly Update - January
|Winter in Norway|
One - Stay fit.
From the first week of January, I started going to the gym. I have no personal trainer. I just attended the introtimer - it's getting to know about the basics at the gym, what are the workout equipments that are in there and how to operate or use it.
My favorites are the elliptical and the treadmill machines. I can watch tv or play music while doing the exercise so I don't get bored. Although we have an stationary bicycle at home, I seldom use it because I don't get the challenge I wanted like what I get from the gym. For me "The more, the merrier!" though, the place isn't that crowdy you know, so there are times when only two or three people around, I think that's cool.
The only time I use the bike at the gym is when I get to finish a complete workout including lifting dumbbells and other stuff. Chill out a little bit, drink my water on the bottle and do other things (listen to my iPod or check if there's a message on the phone). When I get my normal pulse back, I go and change. I don't dare taking a shower at the gym, no thanks!
By the way, I went to the gym 6 times this month max 90-minute each visit, so that was about once to twice a week sometimes. As a beginner, I think that's acceptable ayt? With this winter season we have here, well what can we expect?
About the food I ate, a lot of fresh green salad and more protein from the meat. I had fruits for snacks, sometimes I did smoothie drinks out of strawberries and bananas or any fruits that were just for grabs.
I couldn't resist eating without rice sometimes that's why I needed to have it once to twice a week, think that would be fine. Some sweets and junk foods kept sneaking but who am I to ignore 'em? Yeah I know, this time they aren't my friends :/
Two - Saved.
I'm proud I was able to control myself spending and buying unnecessary stuff this month.
Glad that our supposed to be trip to Sweden this month got cancelled for free (no charge), then it was money saved!
Three - Socialized.
Lately, I've been visiting and seeing my (Pinoy) friends. Obviously I like the way our friendship(s) get along. I love the feeling that somehow I have friends I can turn and talk to when I need them.
Friends whether online or not are important part of our lives. It doesn't matter if you're married or single, we need friends we can talk to and cheer us up anyhow.
That's all folks! Hope to share more accomplishments/updates by the end of the month.
By the way, the first Pinoy Bloggers Outreach (PBO) activity has been successfully made last January 8, 2013 at the White Cross Children's Home orphanage, Philippines. In behalf of all the other founding members and volunteers, we are truly happy and thankful for all your prayers, support and donations! May God bless us all.
