Happy Sunday everyone!
I feel great about the past week because I was able to rest. A lot. Classes at Gymboree resumed (after sembreak) only on Wednesday, and I had no classes this weekend. So hooray!!! Because I was relaxed—and because my jeans are all super tight now—I was (finally!) compelled to get physical. But to get there, I have begun sleeping and waking up early. I think I have to thank PLDT’s palpak na internet for that. Since wala nang magawa sa gabi, derechong tulog na. Result? I’d wake up early the following day.
From this, to…
…this!!! (sana magtuluy-tuloy!)
I feel happy doing it because I know it’s the right thing. I’m not getting any younger and my metabolism has slowed down, especially postpartum. Moreover, Randy’s really happy to see me up and about. He has long begged me to join him in biking, running and dog walking. But since I’m not a morning or a nature-nature person, he’d always go alone.
When we returned to Los Banos, I realized that I left my running shoes in Sta. Rosa. Fart. Buuuuut, ika nga eh ‘pag gusto may paraan. So yesterday morning, I watched Maynila sa Kuko ng Liwanag while on the elliptical machine (that I haven’t used in more than a year). Look, look, look:
Yes, lampas isang oras para i-burn ang 2.5 donuts. #AsanAngHustisya. But still, I feel good that I’m doing something about it. And exercising might awaken my sleeping metabolism. Actually, my mood has improved overall. Totoo nga ‘ata ang sabi ni Elle Woods:
Exercise gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don’t shoot their husbands, they just don’t.
And though I know I still haven’t lost weight, I just feel so good that today that I felt confident to take a photo of me–whole body—for a Wardrobe Diary entry (but not that confident to ask Randy to use his DSLR. Mirror selfie lang muna). Here’s what I wore to church today:
And here are my outfit of the day details:
- black sleeveless blouse: from one of the stalls at Olivarez Plaza, Los Banos (I bought this when I was a freshman in college, grabe!!! Two for P180 ang price)
- white skirt with floral prints: Cacharel
- white kitten heels: Prada
- leather bag: YSL Chyc Cabas
I see from the photos that my arms still need some serious toning and that my waist is barely recognizable from my hips. But the fact that my last Wardrobe Diary post was in April, well, this speaks volumes about my regained self-esteem. Iba talaga ‘ata ang nagagawa ng endorphins. 😉
Have an endorphine-filled week ahead!
