*3 times a week

Yesterday I had the joy of meeting and hanging out with an inspirational girl named Margaret through the Make-A-Wish Foundation. At the age of 15, Margaret has to get dialysis 3 times a week. She really impressed me with her great attitude, sense of humor and kindness to everyone around her.

When Margaret and her family walked in I could immediately tell that it was going to be a fun visit. We decorated Winnie the Pooh cake pops and then played the board game ‘Life’. Margaret’s younger sister Hailey was the champion of that game, AND she showed me her amazing Pokemon card collection.

To top it all off, after hanging out for a few hours they gave me the best gift ever: Boxes of Girl Scout Samoa cookies (my favorite)! Margaret’s family is involved with Girl Scouts just like my sister was growing up. They also made me an honorary member of their troop. I couldn’t believe that their badge logo was even a unicorn!

Margaret: It was a pleasure to meet you and I had a wonderful time getting to know you and your family. You are one tough cookie and I am honored to have been your wish.

A special thanks to Make-A-Wish America for setting this day up and Kin Community for hosting us.

“i’m an emotional wreck.”
“it’s okay, you’re a cute emotional wreck.” ☀︎

some days you wake up feeling like a champion. the sun clearly rose to your feet and kissed your skin as it came up, drawing clouds your way to make sure the weather wouldn’t kill you and everything felt like the perfect puzzle piece to form a great day ahead of you. those days were the ones you lived for, ached for, wanted to breathe it in and let it sink deep into your body to remember what it feels like to win at life. those days are the ones that seungcheol comes home to summer when it’s winter.

some days… aren’t like that.

some days you wake up with the intention of never wanting to. the sun felt like it’s torturing you just as it rakes through your skin and drags you awake with the light blinding your eyes. those days were the ones you wanted to bury down in your chest and never speak of it again. those days were a reminder of what it feels like to lose at living when the only thing you do without trying is living. those days were the ones that seungcheol comes home to winter when it’s summer.

whichever, however, as long as it’s you, he’s prepared.

he starts off with a quiet coo of your name that announces his presence. though, the sound of the door closing and rummaging of items onto the dining table and cabinet really gives him away. but he’ll give you the benefit of the doubt that you’re not quite in the position to pay attention to any of that.

he continues with getting on your level, in other words, his knees because you tend to squeeze yourself in small spots by the balcony window and that is beside the sofa, on the floor. he tries to lure you out with arms reaching in, and even though you look like you’re about to sock him in the face because i want to be alone, cheol.

yeah? then why are you moving already?

seungcheol doesn’t press on it too much, chuckling when you crawl onto his lap where he rests his bum on his folded legs and finds leverage to balance you on him. it’s not long until his aura, one that you’re certain god spent a long time in perfecting cradles you in and he feels the tearstained cheeks re-staining themselves as his fingers go through your hair, the other latched onto your waist as a safety belt.

yet, it’s humorous when you say past your hoarse voice: “i’m an emotional wreck,”

he only responds with a kiss on your head, a smile soon after, “it’s okay, you’re a cute emotional wreck.”

1st day

Hi, guys. Let’s do the 1st day of working out. But first things first:

1. I always do abs and arms. 

2. I run 3 times per week (max). But if you guys run twice a week, that’s really good, too.

3. Don’t ever do more than you can. Respect your limits. If there’s something here you can’t do, don’t do it. Better take it slow and progress each and every day, than actually pull a muscle or something else and have to stop everything. That goes for running, too.

4. I follow the Darebee’s workout programmes. So, if you want to complement this a bit more, you can go to their website and get some really good ones. I fully recommend using their resources. And it’s all free.

Okay, now, for the 1st day.

It looks scary, but we’re not doing everything. I only do a line per day, so I can do abs every day and mix it with arms. So, today, I did the second line: leg raises, flutter kicks and hollow hold. You can do as many sets as you’d like, as long as you do at least 3.

Remember to take your time and not rush it. Take a 30 seconds rest between sets and a 2 minute rest between exercises.

For arms:

Use the weights you feel comfortable with. You should be able to do the exercises without extreme effort. That means, you should have a little trouble finishing the exercises (like, you arms are sore during the last set), but not so much that will hurt you. If you don’t feel a bit sore after it, you’re not doing it hard enough. But it’s just a bit sore. Don’t go using weights heavier than you should. Start light and go heavier bit by bit until you find the right weight.

Now, I mix the exercises up so I don’t feel too tired too soon. I also add some more exercises, so to get the results I want. So, what I did today was, in order:

. 5 sets of 20 leg raises
. 4 sets of arnold press (12-10-8-8)
. 5 sets of 20 flutter kicks
. 4 sets of push-ups (12-12-10-10)
. 5 sets of 20 seconds hollow hold
. 4 sets of lateral raises (7-7-6-5-)
. 4 sets of crunches *
. 4 sets of tricep extensions (6-5-5-4)
. 4 sets of V-ups (10-10-8-6)
. 4 sets of bench presses (12-10-10-8) **
. 4 sets of bicep curls (12-10-10-8)

* The 4 sets of crunches go as following:
     . 20 crunches
     . 10 side crunches (per side)
     . 20 sit ups

** You don’t need an actual bench press to do it. Just use the weights as if you were on a bench press.

After all that workout, it’s running day. I’ll tell you what I did, but each person has their own rhythm, so don’t force it. Go as slow as you need and a bit faster each time. 

But remember to run at least 30 min. That’s how long you need for it to actually do its effects.

I did:

. 15 min at 8.5
. 5 min at 6.0
. 5 min at 8.0
. 8 min at 5.5 (until I completed 4km)

Well, this is it for today. It seems like a lot, but it’s not. You should take between an hour to 2 hours to complete this. And this is a full workout, so even if you do this only 2-3 times a week, you already get a full workout.

If you guys have any questions, fell free to PM me. 

And don’t forget: don’t ever force it. Go as light or as slow as you need and then slowly find your own rhythm. Be safe, first and foremost.

I want to lose 10-15 by June, I'm 5'3" and 124 as of now. I was at my goal a couple months ago but I'm back now :( but what would be a good cal limit to reach that goal again?

Around 800 calories per day and if you do light excercise (1-3) times a week. Thats what the website I use says. Stay safe 💕

Fired! After years… years of hard work. And ass kissing. Oh God, I kissed so many different kinds of asses.

How did I lose the weight?

I really hate to be redundant, because I’m sure you’ve been told this plenty of times already, (and so have I), but it is the actual answer: eat healthier foods and smaller portions, and exercise HARD at least 3-4 times a week. 

I think it is especially important to add heavy lifting training into your fitness regime because it will shape your body better than an all cardio schedule. Also, muscle burns more calories even while resting so the more muscle you have, the faster you will see change! I heavy lift at least 3 times a week now, and that jump started my weight loss. Cardio is still done, but I do less endurance cardio (just running for a long time at a normal pace), and more high intensity cardio. For example, I will do short sprints at my fastest pace for 1/8 of a mile, then walk the rest of the lap. Then I will repeat this until I’ve finished one mile, usually. It is healthier for your heart to learn how to beat faster and then cool down faster, too. This will actually reduce your resting BPM, which is very healthy for your heart! 

I also take pro-biotics daily now, and it has helped my stomach immensely and therefore helped my metabolism. That coupled with a daily multi-vitamin and LOTS of water has helped my body and mind feel better in general. I drink a lot of coffee, too, so I have to remember to drink DOUBLE the water for each coffee. So many bathroom breaks. So worth it. 

I started using the app/website MyFitnessPal to track my intake and my output! I have a 67 day streak going on right now for logging my meals and my exercise. I find that app extremely helpful because it is encouraging and it tells you if you are eating enough/too little, not just if you are eating too much. It really is a good app for your health, and I think it has a good social community too that keeps me motivated! Before using MFP, I never thought too much about what I was putting into my body and my workouts were not as regimented. This made it harder for me to lose weight in a pleasing pattern. Now the scale goes down about 1 pound each week. That is a super healthy pattern of weight loss because it is not too fast. 

However, I do not want to just lose weight! When I reach my desired weight, a healthy BMI, I wish to gain a little back in muscle. More muscle = MORE FOOD. And I sure do love food. 

I hope this helps! Any other questions more specifically aimed at my diet and exercise, please feel free to ask me!
