My Frugal Workout Routine

I love eating! I love carbs! I can eat challah all day! Ohhh, and croissants,too! Don't forget the pearly white jasmine rice! Yummers!

I grew up chubby or fat, whatever you want to call it. I envied those people who can pull out sleeveless tops! I had Brazo de Mercedez-like arms , so I never got to wear sleeveless tops when I was a teenager! Ugh!

 But now? ahem... allow me to brag a little bit. Let me show my before and after pictures:

  1. Wow.. Di ko sya magawa nang straight number of days.. Wag nang bumaba nang 105 lbs.. Ok na yan

    1. Thanks! yah, I played between 105-110 depende sa kain, but I keep 105 lang to be safe coz I go overboard most of the time coz I tend to eat A LOT! I'd like to keep it that way na.

      Sabi ng employer ko, ideal weight formula daw ng mga babae base on their heights is pag 5 ft daw= 100 then after 1 inch add 5 .

      So im 5'2, my ideal weight = 100 (5) + 10 ( 2 inches 5x2)= 110

      I hope my formula make sense.

    2. hehehe.. same height tayo.. i'm trying to maintain 110 lbs din. Keep it up as once you hit your 30s.. it's hard to maintain your weight if you don't watch it. When I was in my 20s, I was underweight, now in my 30s, I'm maintaining my weight.. :) it's a bit tough.

  2. You look hot. In due times you will be as sexy as me. All you now need are tattoos.


I'd love to hear from you. I read and appreciate all comments. :)
