Why I Got Started
With a family medical history, I was worried and decided I should make a change to my life. I also felt that age is catching up with me and I should really look into keeping myself as healthy as possible. I wish to live longer and not look like a typical housewife.
How I Did It
As a housewife and mother of 2 sons, age 10 and 6 respectively, I almost had my whole day to myself besides doing house chores and taking care of my sons. With the plenty free time I had, I read up on health magazines and planned a workout and diet for myself. My workouts are done in my home gym, allowing me to still spend time with my children while still keeping fit!
I have to thank God that my husband is supportive. He bought me the equipment I needed for cardio and weight training. He never fails to make me happy everyday in my life. It took me close to 3 months to lose almost 15 pounds off my body.
I used Nutrex Lipo 6 throughout my entire dieting phrase to keep me going. It's really effective to me and it keeps me energized which is what I love. Optimum Nutrition 100% Whey is also my staple in my supplement list.
Daily diet of mine consists of 6 small meals, 2-3 hours apart.
Due to the lack of equipment as I train in my home gym, my exercises are performed mostly using dumbbells and barbells. Weights' training is done 3 times per week. Cardio is done everyday on an empty stomach right in the morning.
Day 1: Shoulders & Triceps
Day 2: Back & Biceps
Day 3: Legs & Calves
All exercises are done in the 12-20 repetition range except for crunches and leg raises.
