Getting Into A Healthy Habit
One of my resolutions for 2018 was to become more active. I promised myself that after the musical ends, I'll start my healthy life. Well, it's here!
→ I decided to take out a bit of time in my daily life to exercise. I wanted to be fitter and gain more confidence in the way I look (not that I don't like it now, but I should always aim higher). My goal is to workout every single day without fail, unless I really really can't do it, for at least 30 minutes. The workout routine will be indoor based, because then I don't have any excuse to stop myself from exercising due to the weather.
→ With my mum, we've decided that the best time to eat dinner would be right after school. That would mean that I would finish eating before 6 in the evening, giving me more time to do my homework and squeeze in a short workout session. Also, a study showed that having an empty stomach for 12 hours is the best form of diet you can do, without having to sacrifice much.
→ I used to eat a lot of carbohydrates (bread, pasta, etc). Although its needed, it can be the cause of acne (which is a real problem for me). So now, I'm going to limit myself to eating no bread at all and only a few meals with full carbohydrates. I can manage it because my will power is stronger than anything!
→ I tend to sit down and do work right after eating, which is not so good for your digestion and it makes you gain weight faster. So what I've decided to do is to prepare everything I need for the next day at this time. This means that I'll have at least 10 minutes to move around and then get on with work. I get prepared and stay active -- it's a win win for me!
→ Normally, I would eat snacks in between the time I get back home and the time I have dinner, but with the new schedule, I don't have to.
