A Workout Tailored for Me

In my last post I wrote about how a water helped me to lose weight… now it’s time to get really fit!

A good workout is one of my favorite ways to keep my body healthy. Experimenting on many fitness programs over the years, I have come to pinpoint exactly what I want to see and get before I sign up or end up just wasting my money and effort.

For an exercise plan to work for me, I must be able to keep track of the progress I make in a regular basis. Most of the programs that I have joined in the past, although showing promising results, became stagnant over time. I did the same routines for long stretches and it got so boring I ended quitting.

One of my colleagues heard of Tacfit by Scott Sonnon and explained to me how this program is different from ones I have tried before. Through the Tacfit system, I will be able to monitor my progress and advance from one level to another depending on my performance.

I immediately looked it up in the web and saw for myself what the program was about. It actually has three parts – the warm up, the exercise progressions, and the cool down. While the first and last parts are SOPs in regular workout programs, the main event of Tacfit is its progressive exercises.

For example, I have graduated from the regular level suitcase deadlift, I can immediately proceed to the one-legged Romanian deadlift. Other workouts also have more advanced counterparts. Plank pull progress to half knee, sit through to extension, kettlebell bench press to bridge press, spinal rocks to pike and table lift to tripod vertical.

I look forward to trying Tacfit. Now, I can determine if I have advanced on the next level with the type of exercises given to me by my trainer. I no longer need to estimate through guessing if I am making progress with my fitness plan or just wasting time and money on something that does not offer anything new.

How Water Helped Me Lose Weight

In my last post I’ve wrote about my best buddy… a puppy… now it’s time to resume the main topic of this blog…

In the past, I’ve been very eager in testing everything I could get my hands on, just so I could become thinner. Without stepping on the weighing scale and simply looking at myself in the full-body mirror, I’m pretty sure I’m getting a lot closer to my standard of a fit body. I firmly believe my efforts from the previous months have paid off, and a lot of it I attribute to simply drinking lots of water.

How exactly did I end up weighing 5 pounds lighter in a month? There’s not much that I incorporated with consuming at least 8 glasses of water and limiting other beverages, aside from the normal 30-minute exercise per day and taking saffron extract. Yes, you can indeed take saffron extract for weight loss, though I found it a lot more effective if you don’t rely on a single method for cutting off those extra pounds.

I’ve read from a magazine that water has a number of therapeutic effects on our body, but what interested me is the fact that it can actually aid in weight loss. It doesn’t directly target those fats that you’ve been storing for quite a while around your belly or other noticeable body parts, but it helps with increasing your metabolism, especially when drinking it as soon as you wake up.

So what I did is drank water every time I get up from the bed in the morning. I also made it a point to consume at least 16 ounces of water daily. I’m not sure if it’s just me, but I noticed that I’m not feeling as hungry as I did when I was still ignoring how important water is for the body.

After a whole month of doing this, I’m actually relieved. I never experienced this healthy feeling before, despite the same intensity of exercises I’ve engaged myself with. And the best thing is I won’t be eating as much because I’ve gotten used to drinking an entire glass of water whenever I can.
