I’ve been talking about my New Year’s resolutions and my aspiration towards health and fitness. It is a journey that I am committed to despite my insane schedule (yes, I might just share it in later posts, so stay tuned). That is why I have decided to share my fitness/health routine with you. I don’t believe that being healthy and fit equals to slim; I believe that it is being STRONG.
I wake up every morning and get juiced up. Carrot or orange just mixed with Nutribear collagen perks me up instantly. I sit down and go through my planner, just to prep myself for what I am going to be facing today. On weekends, I take a breather on the kitchen counter, scrolling through social media and reading material.
One thing that I have started to incorporate into my daily routine is Mosanco Recovery. It is a small brown pill that helps with my ‘muscle youthfulness’. Just like how we save money for our retirement, taking Mosanco Recovery is like retirement savings, but for muscles. Keeping our muscles ‘young’ help to prevent falls, illness, broken bones and weight gain – the four major challenges we are all faced with as we age.
Now that I have fueled myself, I go for a one-hour walk. This happens before the sun becomes scorching hot, I usually leave the house at about 7.30am to get fresh air, my muscles moving and my head thinking. If I have an event in the morning, I’ll swap my morning walk with an evening walk at the park instead.
Of course, walking itself is not enough. I love to eat and socialise and therefore, I need to work as hard as I am playing. That is when the gym comes in. I pick workouts aimed at weight-loss and muscle strengthening. I head over on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays and follow this circuit.
Monday: 40 minute HIIT Tabata
Plié punch with weights, 10 reps for 4 sets
Star jumps, 10 reps for 4 sets
Spiderman pushup, 10 reps for 4 sets
Burpees, 10 reps for 4 sets
High knees, 40 seconds for 4 sets
Plank, 30 seconds for 4 sets
Friday: 1-hour all-terrain interval ride
My fitness is not just defined by what I do to be fit. It is what I consume to be fit. I take mini-meals a few times a day instead of large meals. I have my breakfast, brunch, lunch, tea time, and dinner before 8pm. The only bad habit that I cannot kick out is my sleeping time. I sleep at 2am almost every day because of my work commitments but in terms of feeding my stomach, it stops at 8pm. I also take Mosanco Tea after meals. It is a functional tea that reduces the absorption of sugar into the bloodstream.
And that is my fitness journey! It is not easy but hey, nothing good comes easy, am I right?
