New fitness routine at the gym + I now weigh 72kg (wtf!)

New fitness routine at the gym + I now weigh 72kg (wtf!)

That's right ladies and gents. I now have a fitness routine that I'll be doing every time I attend the gym, which will be around 3 - 4 days a week. But before I get into that, I'd like to first mark my weight in this blog post. I now weigh around 72kgs, which is kind...

Balaam Leisure Centre – I’m now a gym goer!

I’m officially a gym goer now. I signed up to a gym that is very local and is only 7 minutes walking distance from where I live. Last week I had a tour of the place and I pretty much liked it from the start. It’s funny as I did a Google search for this gym and there...

My stamina seems to fluctuate

I've just taken a shower, after having exercised in the park for around 40 minutes, and I feel as though my stamina fluctuates. Some days I can run for longer periods and some days I'm absolutely flustered. In all of my runs I try to push myself and I can usually keep...

Now doing morning exercises

Now doing morning exercises

Let's just say I've done my own personal research, just like in school, except less physical and less challenging. Instead of exercising in the evening, I'm now exercising every morning. I just started this morning and as always I have taken advantage of the...

I have arthritis…

I have arthritis…

If you know me, you'd probably have added me on Facebook and likely would have seen the x-ray scans of my leg/foot/ankle. Ever since I came to Taiwan, I have exercised a lot and I mean a lot. I was on a strict diet and my goal was to lose 16kg. I achieved that goal in...

Fitness to me has always been a tough thing to follow through on. I’ve had my ups and downs on my journey to become fit and I have been very fit at one stage. The next stage is being able to maintain and turn my fitness into a long-term lifestyle.
