It has been too long !!! Let’s talk about FITNESS!


I’m in class wondering how long will my professor lecture for ?!?! Well, we are talking about Childrens’ Perceptual and Conceptual (by the way, I’m a 4th year Child Development Major at CSU Sacramento). And of course, I am listening and taking notes (just a pro at multi-tasking (^.-)) but also thinking about my fitness progress.

I remember how I gained so much weight working @ a warehouse doing grave-yard shifts for about three years. I resigned the warehouse job just this early spring of 2017. I would get so hungry after coming home around 3PM-5PM in the morning and heading straight to Carlos Jr. (CJ) or Burger King (BK). I gained about 10-20 pounds, my weight was never consistent, and I wasn’t happy with how I looked. I joined the Planet Fitness in late 2015, working out with cardio machines for about 2-3 hours. I was 130 pounds, now in early 2017 I am 115 ~ 120 pounds depending on how I eat and diet during the weeks. I don’t hit the gym as often as I did in my last two years of hard works. I only hit the gym when I have the chance at school which is twice or once a week.

It is hard to find motivation when I have to struggle with school and work, but thinking back on how I used to work out after leaving the grave-yard job (I was very unhealthy because I don’t give myself, body, and mind rest). I barely slept during those times, I would sleep for two to three hours and then go to class, sleep in class or have power naps in the library. Now (present time) I feel like during those time I didn’t allow myself sleeps, it is effecting my well-being and mental health. I sleep more than usual (sleeping for more than 8 hours), and I am less social and outgoing. I learned the hard way that giving yourself sleep is the best health you can do to your mind and body.

Today I woke up feeling like I need to work on my cardio because summer is approaching but I want to make sure that I give myself time to finish my daily tasks such as attending classes (I have two classes today, Monday, which are three hour long classes), doing (catch-up) assignments and homeworks, and also get one hour of workout done by the end of the night.

I want to reminded my self that fitness is a form of being healthy and a lifestyle but at the same times if I don’t have the time for working out, its not the end of the world and it can be push back but if there is time for fitness, I need to do it and not think about how much of a hassle getting ready for the gym or how crowded the gym will be. fitness
