The Famous 30-Day Ab Challenge

I discovered the 30-Day Ab Challenge on Facebook. There was an event that two of my friends (who weren’t even friends) said they would attend, so it popped up on my timeline. And when I see “workout”, “challenge”, or “FREE” (most important one right there), I click on it faster than Garfield can swallow a whole lasagna.

I saved the picture (above), and messaged one of my friends from Columbia to ask if she wanted to join me. I frankly don’t remember what she responded (this was quite a few months ago), but I secretly told myself to do it so I will have washboard abs by the time Columbia’s famous swimming test comes around. So I started it…up to the first week. It’s not that it got too difficult already (although Day 30 looks pretty daunting), it was that I forgot. Continue reading

Presenting: The Best Arm Workout

If you do this arm workout enough, maybe you'll get guns like Arnold Schwarzenegger's!

The Ultimate Workout

The thing is, it wasn’t always THE Ultimate Workout; I had another routine to do the job. That’s what an Ultimate Workout is: a workout you always do whenever you want to, well, work out.

Every person has his or her own Ultimate Workout. It is something you can do whenever and wherever you want, meaning it does not require any equipment but your own body. When you decide on your Ultimate Workout, make sure it is something you enjoy doing, something that challenges you but makes you feel more fit after. It’s not a permanent workout though; you can always change it later, but you would have to learn a whole new routine! Continue reading

A Walk a Day Keeps the Pounds Away

Every evening after dinner, I walk with my family for thirty minutes around the neighborhood. It’s great for my parents because it helps their joints, and they always sleep and feel better afterwards. It’s also great as an escape from computer and TV screens or work stress, and it’s nice to talk to the family, especially since our house will be an empty nest in a couple months. We also get to know our community better because it’s always the same people who are outside at the same time. Obviously, walking is a win-win-win-win-win. Continue reading
