My Fitness Journey (6 months) – Fail & Continue

IMG_20170418_134004

It has been very long time since my last post about my fitness progress and goal. I think most of you guys can tell from the title. I mess up and do not make any progress. ( I actually gain weight and fat back.)  This is a post to reflect my past 6 months and how I am going to continue slowly at my own pace.

The biggest reason for me not losing weight/fat is I didn’t exercise regularly. I didn’t exercise at all for past 5 months. I don’t know why. I can starve myself but just can’t exercise often. Well, I can exercise often. No excuse. I just a lazy and horrible person. I also feel like I set up the goal higher than I actually can achieve. I think I should just do mini exercise every day to develop habit before doing more. I just do 20 crunches on my bed now. XD

 

 

I also didn’t watch out what I eat either. I used to watch out my portion and types of food I ate. I just eat whatever I want last 5 months. I need to watch out what I eat again. It is for my health too. I think eating more veggie and drink more water are good for our health. 😉 I watch some meal prep video and Instagram pictures so I think I need to reduce carbs intake and need more veggie and protein. I will buy some eggs and veggie. I will separate my 3 meals to 5 meals so I don’t feel full or hungry.

I think a fail is not the end. I can still workout and have balance diet to achieve my final goal. I fail a lot of time in my life anyway. 😛 I just need to keep consistent,. It is going to be summer so I will go swimming or hot yoga in morning. 😉 I may not do it every day since it is tired, and I will give up if I always feel tired. XD The more I exercise, the more I admire fitness bloggers and vloggers. They are dedicated to their diet and exercise a lot! As a person who doesn’t like sweating and super fast heartbeat, I cannot imagine how it feels. I know most of them enjoy exercise, and I know once I pass the tired bad time, I will like exercise. It makes me feel fresh healthy strong and satisfied.

I am lowering my carbs intake and keep doing my mini exercise. Now I want to have a one month crunch challenge and show a before-after. 😉 I think doing a short time challenge is easier. My fitness journey is not going to end. I will keep challenging myself!

    1. Thank you very much! I was thinking to join some class to help me get used to exercising, but I am on a budget now and I think at the end of the day, I still need to have a correct mindset for fitness.

  1. My I please site you and your blog as inspiration on my own post of failing fitness goals and getting back up again? Also, could I link it to your post? I really enjoyed the message here!

    1. Aww For sure! I am so happy that I inspire you. Thank you so much for motivating me <3 I will read your post 🙂

    1. Thank you for the encouragement! I think I should stay my true self and sending positive message to people. I want everyone can get back up after falling.

  2. I love this post…so real…because if we are all honest, a fit and healthy lifestyle is full of ups and downs just like the rest of life. But keep your head up pretty girl, and keep going. One day at a time and one step forward . You can do it!

    1. Thank you so much! I wish I never fail, but once I fail, I will face it and try better next time. I think learning from failure helps me understand more and stay positive. I think not just diet or fitness. We should be more positive about our life too. Failure doesn’t mean ending as long as we never give up!

    1. I feel better and more motivated after I post this. I think it is important to face our failure and never give up trying. It is ok to fail. We just need to know we aren’t always failing. 😉 Fighting! We can do it!

  3. you can do it! Committing to something takes so much energy, time and motivation. Don’t give up, you’re doing great and give yourself some time

  4. keep up the good work! You only fail when you give up on yourself so stay the course and look for more ways to bring sustainable balance into your life. That way, you don’t feel like you’re depriving yourself but rather adopting a lifestyle that will not only make you much healthier but will also change your outlook on life and what you want to achieve.

  5. You can do it. Dont give up. I have had alot of people tell me they have fallen off the horse. The hardest part is getting back on.

    Hell i myself haven’t been staying fit amd healthy. Havent been to the gym in 5 weeks due to health reasons and let me eating go down the loo. Just keep your head up.

    It happens to the best of us. Just pick yourself up, brush yourself off and keep going.

    1. Aww Thank you so much <3
      Sometimes it is interesting that people think there are secrets to have a fit body. When I start the journey, the only one thing we need to do is just keep consistent.
      I won't give up. It took me 2 years in college to lost 25lbs. Now I am trying to build some muscle to look nice. I think I can do it!

  6. Good luck, you’ve got a really big motivation. I should start to work out too but I’m so lazy, I need to find some workouts to do at work – I’m probably the worst employee ever. Anyway, good luck and I can’t wait for next update 🙂

  7. For me, I’d say feeling healthy is 80% food intake, and 20% activity. I hate saying “working out” – it’s better to be moderately active and moving around than having intense works out that burn you out. I also think some weight training is very good for women. As for food – moderation in everything. I love sweets and I’ll never ever give up carbs! But I mainly like the taste and I’m satiated after a few bites. It’s good to have small goals and adjustments. For instance I used to take 3 tsp (yes THREE) in my coffee and now I’m down to 1 tsp. That’s progress. Keep it up and even if a habit doesn’t “stick”, it doesn’t mean you can’t pick up where you left off and start again!

    1. Thank you so much! I agree with you. I think I do that 80% and just need some of those 20%. I cannot do intense workout for now. I will just go swimming and do some mini workout at home.
      Just do little by little and will be fine. I will never give up!

  8. Keep going!! I am horrible too when it comes to keeping to routine, but there is always improvement which is better than none at all.

    I read in a lot of places it’s 80% diet and 20% exercise, so definitely do not starve yourself!! Eat clean, and if you are worried about carbs, eat the wholegrain type carbs although I know this can be difficult because of white rice… XD As for exercise, I think if you are not regular anyway, start with 3x a week. And then increase when you are much more comfortable.

    1. Thank you so much! I actually lost a lot weight by dieting alone. I just need to exercise to get some lean muscle so I can keep my progress longer.
      I eat brown rice only now but I still eat a lot of carbs XD I am checking out those fitness meal prep so result comes quicker.
      Exercise is really my weakness. I know classes will help but I don’t want to spend. XD

  9. You should definitely check out the ‘Sworkit Personalized Workouts’ app (available on all platforms). I played around with the free version for a week and got it upgraded to Premium once I realized that it was well worth the cost. And hey, upgrading to the Premium plan is totally optional! 🙂💪

  10. Congratulations on not giving up, your persistences will eventually result in success. Exercise and diet are key, but diet usually trumps exercise.

  11. Hey Maggie! I think you’re on the right track by setting a smaller goal and making it a habit everyday – that is very smart ;)) One thing I do every morning is something I call Wake Plank — every day when I wake up, the first thing I do is do a 30 second plank. It was hard to do at first when I had a weak core, but then after a little while I was able to build up to 45 seconds, and then 1 minute planks. I love talking about health&fitness so if you ever want to chat just lmk! You can always email me or even snap me if you have snapchat :)) Good luck!

    1. Aww thank you very much Jess. I will try doing it with 30 seconds. I have a weak core. I don’t know how to use correct muscle to do sit up. I heard if we want to workout our core, we will need to squeeze our belly. Is it true?

      1. It’s okay – you can strengthen your core little by little! If you’re doing the plank, then yeah you will squeeze your tummy the whole time. The plank will also be good for your arms ;))

  12. I have a motto/mantra that has been getting me through my fitness journey. It is, “All the people who have made it have had one thing in common regardless of what their plans were. That is that they didn’t give up. Were as those who failed all had one thing in common too, except for them it was that they did give up.” So as long as you keep trying winning is within reach. 🙂
