♠️ Italy & Exercise 😜 😝
I have been away for far too long…So what has been going on to me lately? ❤️❤️
First of all I went to Italy last December visiting my stepdad’s family. My grandma had recently been through another cancer surgery and I just wanted to see her you know. It has been around 6 years I haven’t came back. I don’t want them not to think that I didn’t think about them at all, especially to my lovely nonna. The thing is I really can’t speak Italian as much as I wanted to talk to her.
Took us around 18 hours of flight. I ate quite a lot on the airplane, the food was amazingly good. There has been some turbulence too. It’s funny how I manage my fear of turbulence, I closed my eyes and think that I am riding an FFXIV mount (you see my imagination is wild). We arrived at the 20th of December, it was a very cold wintery morning. We rent a car from Milan and we drove to Mantova for an hour stop to look around then went to Peschiera to stay for the night. The next day we continued our journey to Pesaro. It was a long drive. I think we arrived around 3 p.m. My grandma was having a nap that time.
I wanted to post about Italian food and a little bit of my trip but not on this post though.
Anyway, I didn’t do much in Italy, mostly just getting my stomach bulk!! LOL. So I had a depression last 2017 and I lost like 7kg. It’s good for me because I needed to lose those weight, lol. After I lose those weight I figured that I should exercise to keep fit and control my weight, not to get to skinny or too fat, I just want to be fit. I had tried to make a 30 day challenge before but I could not manage to get it all done, everyday is still no good for me. Maybe if I am already used to it I could do 30 days. So instead I will just post my before after picture and the exercises I did in 30 days.
Why am I so determined to lose a little bit of weight and exercise? I think it was because I was quite bored when I was in Italy, I could not really work there because the table was small and I cannot find the “moment” for my work. LOL. Then I decided to take around 1 hour and half morning walks (usually 3-5km). It all started with my parents asking me to join morning walks. Then they started to get lazy (especially my mom) and I walked on my own, every single day. I think I never skipped even once. I really love the morning breeze. I felt cold at first but I got used to it through time. I am loving these walks!!! I am happy that I feel safe when I walk because there are many people who take walks too in the morning and what made it interesting was, they mostly bring their dogs along. I am so loving this country. When I see dogs, I just want to smile¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I will start to record all my exercises from today to the end of February but without thinking what I ate. I will not do the salad diet. AT ALL because it will just keep me hungry and I want to eat all the time. Though of course I wouldn’t eat snacks too much. Just eat normal (better to use 5x eating techniques than eat salad). You see at these age it is very hard to keep metabolism. Before it was easy for me to hold hunger but as time passes it is hard and it keeps getting harder to get slim 😫😫
We arrived home at 7th of January and I did not stop the exercise. The difference is I do it in the afternoon and I did running not walking (why I walked in Italy is because I did not bring my sport shoes). I run for 3-4x a week with a little abs exercises. I wished I could do body combat again! But body combat is more fun when I joined classes. The thing is I am not a gym member anymore. I wish I still am but I don’t really like the AC in the gym and I don’t really have real friends to go with there. So it’s just a pity if I join a membership again.
I think that is all for now I will be looking forward to give a list of my exercises on a new category later 😉 (ﾉ◕ヮ◕)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧ ✧ﾟ･: *ヽ(◕ヮ◕ヽ)
