I love Zumba!

Zumba is a fitness program created by columbian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez during the 1990’s. Since then, zumba became popular all over the world. And we, Filipinos are into this kind of exercise too. A different kind of exercise, since you’re just dancing, and oh you don’t have to be a very good dancer here as long as u follow the instructor on stage, and you’re as awesome as the others too.

For person like me who really love dancing, zumba is my favorite exercise. I dance as if nobody is watching, i mean who cares?! πŸ™‚ All i want is to lose weight, and even before i got pregnant i did zumba to keep me fit and fab. Zumba is also one way of destressing myself. Plus you gain more friends.

Here’s some of my pictures joining zumbathon &zumba for a cause in town.

This is the first zumbathon i joined 4th months after giving birth by CS.. The whole family came to support me, and my nanay is kinda nervous since it’s been 4 months from my operation. YKWIM (you know what i mean)

Since my zumba buddy is not around, my ever supportive husband and daughter is with me here. Woke up as early as 4am, early bird, proof is my number, it’s 15.:-)

Fact: my shoes here is worth 150 pesos only, it’s imported at a cheap price. This shoes never failed me. From zumba to fun run, this shoes is so far the best shoes ever. And until now, i still gonna use it. Plus the fact that my husband bought this. I always say,it’s not about the price, as long as you give it from your heart and i’ll gonna keep and love it with all my heart.

Here’s my latest zumba pictures. You see the difference?!:-)

Oh yes! I really lose weight. But it’s not all about zumba, it’s about your determination to lose weight. It’s proven that no matter what my size, my husband loves me, but you know a girl like me wants to look good and sexy for my husband. We always want to look good for our husband, agree?! Β It’s not “kaartehan”, it’s keeping the romance in marriage.. We wives, we need to be the most flirty slut girl in front of our husband. πŸ™‚ (we all know they like it,right?!) πŸ™‚ There’s no excuse, old or young, we need to be like that to our husband, coz that’s one way to keep our relationship stronger,never forget that. πŸ™‚

Don’t have time to join zumba? Well, you can do zumba at home while taking care of your babies. There’s a lot of DVD out there (sshhhhh i know it’s pirated hehehehh)… Β Or watch on youtube or simply turn on your favorite dance music at home. You can also invite your neighbors to do zumba with you, coz’ i know,sometimes Β doing zumba alone is kinda boring..hehehehe.. 30 minutes of zumba everyday will do.

But always remember, beauty is not all about pretty faces and sexy body, it’s the inner beauty that counts. Outer beauty will fade,but inner beauty will stay forever.

God Bless everyone!!!

How to lose weight?!

image image Β  I gained so much weight when i got pregnant. And weighted 60kg after giving birth. Kinda frustrating,from 40kg before pregnancy to 60kg. Low self esteem, insecurities started, and sometimes i cried coz’ i saw a clothes in the mall that i super like but it wont fit me. Thankful to my husband,coz’ he’s always makes me feel like i’m the sexiest and the most beautiful girl on earth.

Like in the mall, everytime i saw a “healthy girl” (our term of fat n big ), then suddenly he’d wisphered “daku pa sya nimo” (she’s bigger than you) or ” medyo daku ka but mas gwapa kapa niya” (you’re a bit bigger but you’re more beautiful than her”… Etc..

I gave birth thru CS (ceasarian section) but as early as 3 months after giving birth i joined zumba here in our town. I know it’s kinda dangerous but i’m so frustrated and can’t wait to get back my old figure. But the moment i felt pain in my lower abdomen,i realized why on a rush?! It can wait, at the right time..

After 1 year, i got active again in zumba,fun run, jogging and sometimes badminton. Thanks to my ever supportive hubby,my partner in badminton and jogging,my fan in zumba, or even did zumba with me. To my partner in fun run and zumba cathy,thanks for the free singlet (twice)..

To lose weight is not about diet, the food you eat or juicing but it’s all about your strong determination to achieve your goal,which is to lose weight. Dieting is useless without determination and sefl control.

Here’s what i did to lose weight: (i don’t know if this is right but it works for me) πŸ™‚

* Early in the morning i drink cold water.

* I don’t eat breakfast (meal), i only ate banana or 1 pc of cracker or 1 pc bread. Or even before i don’t really eat breakfast.

* I don’t eat AM snacks.

* Lunch is normal. (I can eat all i want, no limit)

* PM snacks (sometimes)

* Small meal dinner.

* I did juicing sometimes, no meals only detox juice.

To all mom’s at home, you can also lose weight while taking care of your baby. Just turn on your favorite dance musics and dance, for sure your baby will enjoy watching you just like mine, and sometimes my baby dance with me too. You burn calories at the same time bonding with your baby. And don’t forget to put binder in your waist before dancing.:-)

You want a free sauna?, get inside your room, close all the windows and door and hide inside your comforter, believe me it works. I did that a lot of times. πŸ™‚ Don’t forget, you can also burn calories while cleaning the house. And even while cooking. Yah! I dance while cooking but mostly i sing..hehehe

Party time. You can’t resist those yummy foods and cold drinks. Well, don’t starve yourself, you can eat but know your limitation, control yourself. And if you eat a lot then make sure to exercise the next day.

In my case, i ate small dinner meal at 6pm. By 9pm or 10m, my tummy starts making sounds,in short, hungry again. What i did is drink a lot of cold water and then sleep. And if ever i can’t sleep, i drink cold water again. πŸ™‚

It’s easy to gain weight but super hard to lose weight. Lucky those girls who eat a lot and yet never gain weight. Lucky me, from 60kg to 48kg now.hehehe.. πŸ™‚

To all the girls out there who dream and wish to lose weight like me, never lose hope. Keep trying. Determination and self control. And always remember, the true beauty is not about looks, makeup or clothes, true beauty comes from being yourself. We are beautiful in our own unique way. πŸ™‚

Keep smilling!!! ( O _ ^ Β ) winky!
