My Journey : Working Out, Slow but Sure, to Reach Ideal Body! *Bonus Diet Plan

Hi guys, 

it's been a while since my last post *sorry XD


there were many things happen during those 2 months,


become Student of The Year 2014  at my university,


 joined ACUCA camp in Taipei, etc etc


There are also sad stories, but mostly are happy and exciting ones. And i'm really thankful to God Jesus for that <3 <3




Okay let's skip about those stories first, i'll come back later to share about them ;D


Tonight i wanna share bout my new journey, my new goal, with you guys


It's about reaching ideal body ! *horay! (´▿`ʃƪ)



The purpose i make this post, is to share and motivate you guys,


who also in same journey like me,


or have same dream like me (but still waiting for a "motivation booster" <3 )



Ehmm, where should i begin my story? 


I were a very skinny girl until 7 y.o. So skinny to the point it's unhealthy. 
I didn't eat much, because i was really picky about food, but really active as a young girl. Not like the other girls at my age, who love playing with dolls, and just chat between girls friends, i cannot sit and keep silent even just for seconds!



Everday is all about playing games with my big bro and boy friends. Notice i give them underlines?
My group consist of 95 % of boys ! LOL
( i couldn't stand just sit and play dolls with the girls for hours *what's the point? not to insult anyone, but i just really dun get it  O.o - sorry haha)
We played soccer ball, kites, baseball, cycling etc etc as kids. Just every games that needs running, screaming, use our muscle, is fun and exciting for me *u get the point



My parents worried about my heatlh, because i was easily get sick. 
my nutrition intake wasn't good because i was really picky about food. And i often end up overtired and got sick >__<



So they gave me chinese herbal medicine who boost up metabolism, increase my appetite and make me healthy. And that's when my appetite become too big, because i then eat everything !
I know the happiness eating good food, and since my family love to travel to many places to hang out and eat, i become fat TT ^ TT
It's a little bit sad, but i'm not dissapointed. Because healthy comes first. So it's okay.



I still do many exercising like badminton and so on. Since my nature is a little bit boyish, so once again, no doll (exception for teddy bear. That soft and cute bear, i love it up until now. Mr. Teddy is just too cute and i cannot resist his charm ! wkwkwk )

So i'm growing up not too fat but never been in very good shape either :p


It was around senior high chool, when i start becoming a female, have crush and so on, i start to give more attention to my body shape (i blv all of you ladies and boys have this experience too, don't you? love works like magic hahaha)
I crazily go on diet, and become quite slim. Lose about 10 kg only in some months.



But then at my 3rd grade in senior high school, when i faced national final exam, i got really stress and my appetite increase once again
So i become fat again * wew



Luckily i'm quite tall as a girl. 166 cm. so even if  i gain weight, people often don't realize i'm fat, till they know my weight. Btw, i'm 59 kg now.
I'm not embarass about my weight. This is my body <3



But these past months, i see many people around me working hard to reach their ideal body. Try to build muscle, get flat or six packs abs, and so on. People that i know, and  people that i don't know (just see their accounts on instagram)



They do really motivate me to come back at the right track, to once again pursue my dream, to reach my ideal body. I really want that slim waist and flat abs ! *ON FIRE



So, here i am now, working out towards my goal.
It's hard, and every day is really challenging.
 It requires determination, hard work, say no to excuse,
and NEVER GIVE UP.
I bold it, since i think it's the main point in this journey. Never Give Up.
Once we start this journey, there will be many things that make us want to just stop and say whatever, but please don't give up. 
Because we know what kind of achievement that we will get later.
I  still only lose about 2 kg now (i was 61 before). But i try not to care about the scales.
Because i see that my body getting smaller ^__^


I found this picture on google, 
i believe it says really clear about why we don't need to concern about scales.

So if we replace those fats with muscles, our body will automatically getting smaller,
eventhough our scales is same ; D



So to make you stay motivated, to close this post, i want to share my diet and exercise plan.
I personalize it by my self, after reading many articles, books, and so on.
I think it's the best way to reach ideal body.
Hope it works well on you too ^__^
