START BEING AND START LIVING
Helping professionals in achieving quality life through holistic education and coaching on health and wellness - physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
When I left my last corporate job, I was in my mid 40s, feeling depleted and very overweight.
Like most corporate jobholders, I worked overtime, no time to exercise, stressed up and comfort myself through food. I was so exhausted by weekend that I rather sleep through the weekend than to do anything. My social circle was only my colleagues and my family. I lost touch with most of my friends, except occasional look into the social media to know what they are doing.
After I left my job, the first thing was that I wanted to lose weight. It is not just about my look, but my health. I was often breathless after a short walk and my knee hurt. On top of that, I injured my right ankle a few years before, so having those extra weight did not help my ankle to support me. I ended up limping and my posture was affected. I often dislocated my ankle. I know I have to do something already.
I know I need to change my lifestyle. I started with my eating. I need to lose weight first through diet as exercising at that stage would do more harm to my knees and ankle. I started cooking my own meals. With that, I lost 5 kg and 3 inches off my waist in 2 months. I felt so good. No more limping and my knees no longer hurt. I did not have ankle dislocation for a long time. Then I started walking and light jog into my exercise routine. I also work on my emotional issues that I was having then. I lost another 2kg and 1 inch off my waist.
Incorporating cooking and 30 mins exercise everyday may be a luxury for busy people like you and me. So I come out with bite size workout (not more that 10 mins, some even 1 minute!) and simple meal planning and recipes. Want to know more?
