I have mentioned in my many blog posts that scheduling my fitness journey has been very hard for me. I have a lot of maybe’s that hindered me to do this much-needed activity. I said “much-needed” because I gained a lot of pounds for many months due to messy eating schedules as well.
I knew then that I have to condition my mind first and encourage myself to pursue and be faithful to my exercises. I have to do my best to be consistent. There and then, I set a plan to help me achieve my goal. Below are three things that guide me in starting this journey.
1. I schedule day which I can fully do my fitness exercises. I usually schedule Tuesday. My exercises do not last more than three hours, so I can fit it in this day. I did not try to put it on weekends because usually, I have plans by Friday night, classes by Saturdays and of course, church service and family time by Sunday. I value these moments so much that I know I should not miss the time.
2. I have YouTube as my guide. I followed a few number of fitness personalities in YouTube. One is Chloe Ting. Here videos give me the idea that I know what I am doing and how to do it, and makes my light exercising guided and effective.
3. I wear my exercising clothes, my best shapewear. It is because having proper outfits for active activities adds to the motivation that I can do my activity, succeed my fitness goal and that I can do everything that is required of.
Most of all, it gives the workout vibe that fill-in energy time to time. Especially for me that I have to double time to put my body back to its shape. I have eating more than my capacity these past few months because of stress, depression and tiredness and my body bloated which is very much not necessary. My plus size waist trainer works best for this body problem.
I have been purchasing my outfits from shapellx.com. Shapellx celebrates women of all sizes. As what their missions says, they shapes women to be fierce and fabulous and envisions a generation of confident, beautiful women that shine bright, and bring their A game to the full life journey.
