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 do so since I no longer workout as much as I used to. I wrote a blog post, “The Bae Blogs: The Making“, and openly asked what my readers would like to read more from my blog. Corinth of Explore with Corinth said she would like to read more about health and fitness stuff, and a few weeks after, Rae of Scatterbraintures left a comment on one of my photos on Instagram and said the same thing. We even exchanged a few messages with each other and ever since I couldn’t stop thinking about how to do a beginner’s workout blog post.
Honestly, it took me a long time to finally write this because I didn’t want to feed just fluff to my readers or in case someone who’s searching for the same topic comes across my blog post. I want this to be helpful as much as possible. I know I’m Christian by heart, but with fitness, I try to stick to science.

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 it’s the hormones, or the lack of a womanly vibe ever since I chopped off my hair to a semi-pixie cut or the hard fact that despite my attempts to stay as fit as I could, I still gained weight over the holidays. Whatever the reason is, I don’t feel good about my body lately and I’d like to change it right now.
I know we should love our body more than hate it, but there are just days where we feel down and off. Apparently, today is that day for me.
I’ve been working out for years now but I’ve only been to gym for the last 6 months (except that one month I withdrew from it and slacked off from working out) and for the few months I’ve been going to gym to improve my physique and gain strength, among other things, there are a few lessons I’ve picked up along the way – both from my own experience and from people around me, a.k.a. my fellow gym rats.
