Tough Week

By HappySkinnyGirl

This is a tough week for me, I binged on Monday and Tuesday and have no motivation whatsoever to do any exercises. I guess I’m exhausted because it has been a while since I’ve been doing any kind of exercise. Today I feel better after a long walk. I’ll leave you with an inspirational video from YouTube. I wish I have that kind of energy!

– 22 099 steps
– 1 x pump it up dance workout
– Lost: 0.2lbs (100g)

It has been a confusing week because I was feeling good but then I was worried I was going to fail. There’s no real reason why I should fail though. I’m not on any diets or intense training program like I used to be in the past. I’ve accomplish my goal for this week and I’m being more active! =D>

The Beauty Of 10%

By HappySkinnyGirl


Most books about money and wealth that I’ve come across recommended that we should save 10% to become wealthy or donate 10% to feel prosper in order to get back tenfolds. It has taught me that changing habits to lose weight is no different, we should apply the 10% formula to that as well. It’s a small increment and I believe success will come to at greater rate. Last week I’ve walked 18 689 steps, this week I’ll be increasing it by 10% (1869 steps), total steps I should walk for this week is 20 558 steps. Sure, I can walk more but I’m aiming for consistent result and as the same time giving my body and my mind a chance to adjust, heal and rest.

Do you practice the 10% formula in any area of your life?

  • 18 689 steps
  • 1 x Pump it up dance workout video
  • Lost 0.4lbs (200g)

I’ve walked 18 689 steps this week and I did Pump It Up Dance Workout only once. It’s recommended to walk 10 000 steps per day and my average is not even close to that. Shame on me! However, this week was much better than last week and I lost an amazing 0.4lbs. >:D< Normally I would fret about it but I realized stress hinder my goal to lose weight.

47.8 lbs left to lose…

A Wonderful Little Tool

By HappySkinnyGirl

pedometer.jpgThe weight loss process is going so darn slow, but I’m trying to change my habits without thinking too much about my weight. I’ve started good this week with high energy so hopefully this will continue throughout the week. I still eat late at evening, so that’s a thumb down. I went and bought a new pedometer (the picture on the left) because my old one got lost during the move to my new place. I bought a simple one that counts only steps for $18 and it works very well. I’ve realized why the pedometer is a good tool to use for walking. I don’t have to count how many minutes or miles I walk, because counting time is equal to stress. It’s not really important how many steps I take today, but the total progress of each week. I’ll challenge myself to move more by beating the last week steps. How do you challenge yourself to keep fit?
