    7 Reasons Why I Workout

    It’s been six months since I last went to the gym. Sure, I worked out here and there but they were nothing serious or exhausting. But I could also say it’s because my stamina is getting lower so I couldn’t keep up with my usual program or I needed to lower my weights. After contemplating for about an hour, I finally gave in and went to the gym. It could have been as simple as going to the mall. You know, changing your clothes, putting on your shoes, and walking out the door. But it wasn’t as easy for me. I was so scared to go to the gym for…

    A COMPILATION: MY FITNESS BLOG POSTS

    In line with my going back to working out, I want to write this reference list for other bloggers out there who are starting their own fitness journeys. Actually, whoever, you are, if you find my stuff interesting and helpful, then thanks! Feel free to bookmark my blog posts or visit my blog whenever necessary. Here’s the thing, though, I’m all about natural weight loss, exercise, etc. I’m not going to support you if I find out you’re taking Bangkok pills, waist training in lieu of actually working out, taking slimming teas, other diet pills or similar products that do not have therapeutic claims. Those are really risky, to be…

    My 15 truths about working out based on my personal perspective: 1. It is addictive; therefore, 2. It is habit forming. 3. There is no such thing as being too fit, being too strong, being too flexible, etc. 4. There are people who go to the gym and have no idea what they’re doing, but 5. You should never judge anyone in any aspect. Everyone is doing his best. 6. You will have setbacks, you will go on plateaus, and that’s okay, that’s normal. 7. There are days that you will feel like a beast. And then there are days that you will feel like a bag of potato chips.…

    Fitness for Beginners

    When The Bae Blogs was born, I thought of giving my blog posts a makeover and so I started coming up with blog series that I could follow to make sure I was on schedule with blogging and to prevent having setbacks or backlogs. One of the blog series I thought of writing was Fitness Friday. Obviously, every Friday, I’d post anything related to fitness – be it one of my exercise routines, a fitness discovery, a funny anecdote in the gym or anything that relates to working out, dieting, and whatnot, but mostly it leaning on the fitness side. However, I thought it would be ironic for me to…

    How to feel good about your body (even if your mind says otherwise)

    I’m currently having one of my episodes where, instead of celebrating how far I’ve come, I’m looking at my body just feeling disgusted about it. And instead of fuming about it, I decided to just write about it and hopefully leave personal tips on how to love yourself and your body more for what it is and what it can do for you despite all your flaws and your tendency to think otherwise about it. I know we all have our own fitness journeys, our own stories to tell, or maybe we don’t since some of us haven’t started on it, if there are actually plans to do so. Maybe…

    Dear Fat People

    [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R1VUrOxRUsE?feature=oembed&enablejsapi=1&origin=http://safe.txmblr.com&wmode=opaque&w=500&h=281] Oh, this is so beautiful! I LOVE YOU GRACE HELBIG!! Comedy can be such a powerful tool and the last time I checked, it was supposed to make you laugh, not cry. Fat-shaming is real and NA proved it 100%, officially making herself one of the bullies. That’s it, it’s all about ‪#‎respect‬. (Oh I’m sorry, Arbour, does my hashtag offend you?) How can you talk about something so sensitive in such a klutz manner? Where’s your humility? Ever heard of compassion, even? Making you “lean” doesn’t give you the right to shame on fat people, in fact no one does. Grace is right, doing it comes off as…
