TBR Dream Marathon 2018: Week 4

Good morning Philippines! It’s been 3 weeks since my last post and boy I can’t tell you how phenomenal training has been! The weather wasn’t very cooperative, one day your skin gets burned, one day huge blocks of rainwater pierce through your scalp. I initially thought there’s no way I could train if this keeps on. Well, that ship has sailed. Thanks to Anytime Fitness Shaw, I could do some…

TBR Dream Marathon 2018: Week 1

It has been quite a busy week for me work-wise since I’ve changed my job description (from operations to sales), though I still work with the same spectacular company (I just love Sun Life). What I did was a tough decision for me but it appears to be best one nonetheless.

How often should you workout?

It’s been 6 times in a row that your coworkers commented on your chubby cheeks and your prominent gut. Word on the street is that you’re getting fatter and fatter each day. “Food is life, no?” And that’s not counting the days when you had to cover your “beer” belly with your left arm depending on the angle of the smart camera. It’s tormenting for you, to say the least….

Papayat ba ako? (Will I lose weight?)

“Lex, kailangan ko nang pumayat. Sobrang taba ko na, pupunta kami beach next month at ayokong makita nila ang laki ng tyan ko. Kaya ba yun?” (I need to lose weight for I have become extremely fat.
