Xmas gift ideas! for your buddy who loves working out

13 Dec

(This is secretly my xmas wishlist hehe)

I’m just kidding!
Well, here are some presents that you could get for your friend/family who loves fitness. Or perhaps someone who is motivated to lose some weight! πŸ™‚

I’m also a cheapo so i wouldn’t recommend you to splurge on something REALLY exorbitant.
Okay totally kidding on the cheapo part, but save the big gift for a birthday πŸ˜€

Here goes…..

Sports towel

Resistance bands ( i love this!!!!)

Pedometer (it measures the distance you’ve covered)

Water bottle

Training gloves (for a firm grip with weights in the gym)

A diet book
Bob Greene’s The Best Life Diet is the best i’ve read so far πŸ™‚Β 

Well i’ll include gift ideas for the less budget conscious anyways πŸ™‚

Sports earphones

Ipod Nano

Kettlebells

Sports watchΒ 

Victoria’s secret sports wear!!
Totally random but they look so hot on the models ha ha haΒ 

And thats all i could think of!! πŸ˜€
Any other suggestions?

So the festive period is coming……. Its time to cut some slack on your waistline and indulge for a bit πŸ™‚
Turkeys and logcakes and candies will be haunting every corner of your eye.

Take a break and have some good fun with your family (usually involves lots of food)
πŸ™‚

I’m excited for xmas because K will be meeting my family and extended family for the first time and i’m so excited to have a good reunion with the close ones. πŸ™‚
I hope all of you would have awesome plans for the holidays decked out too!

For the Ladies……

6 Feb

How many of you, like me,
have looked up to girls like these, and work your butts off just to Try to be somewhat close?
Our butts are either too big or too small,
our boobs too small,
our shoulders too broad,
our thighs too thick etc….
We’re never good enough.
No matter if you’re tall, short, fat or thin,
you’re brainwashed to think that SIZE ZERO it seems has been what women dream of having.
The perfect set of boobs, perky ass and washboard abs.
The elongated, lean, tight and tann body, has been the Standard,

The ultimate fantasy for men and even women.
I was just doing gender studies in school last semester and something i remembered coming across is that,
Women look at women with a narcissistic gaze.
In simple words
Women want to be them.
The narcissistic gaze make women try to become the model they see in the media.
But here’s the Truth.
This Body?

Not everyone can have it, because we are all born differently.

SO STOP TRYING TO BE SOMEONE YOU’RE NOT!
We’re born with genetically different body shapes which is something
WE CANNOT CHANGE.
Some of us have a Ruler(rectangle) body, pear shaped or hour glass.
And FYI, most of the pictures of models you see have been heavily photoshopped and obviously,
Liquified and thus they seem to have a seamless, flawless body, no wrinkles or spots whatsoever.
So,
does that deem us Hopeless?
.
.
.

OBVIOUSLY NOT.
What i’m trying to say is just that
No matter what shape you are, EMBRACE IT.
I am not just talking about bigger girls, but even girls who are really thin and also dream of having a curvy body.
We can still look our best be it apple-shaped, pear-shaped or whatever fruit shape you are.
Don’t let what is given to you define you.
Make it work.
Don’t lose hope just because you’re genetically bigger and you can’t look like Giselle Bundchen.
Don’t lose hope just because you don’t have a perky butt and big boobs and let it make you feel less than the rest.
Stop being mislead by the images you see in the media having the

‘SIZE ZERO or nothing mentality’
Ultimately, of course,
(You know i would be coming to sooner or later)
The bottom line is none other than

Work out!
Love yourself and start living well and not resort to diet pills or binge eating to get to that size.
Whatever shape you are, love it and make the best out if it.
There are many women out there who do not have the overrated hour glass body but still appeal to masses.
Here are some examples of really gorgeous girls who work out to be at their best shape despite their less than perfect body shapes.


Cheryl Burke

Keira Knightley

Kim Kardashian on the right

Beyonce

Gwen Stefani
Jessica Lowndes from 90210 ( I think she is SO gorgeous! )

Confidence is Sexy.
So what if i don’t have boobs?
So what if my ass is huge?

Embrace your body!

Inspiration of the week

23 Jan

She’s a Victoria’s Secret Angel.

She has fronted countless covers of Shape, Maxim, Cosmopolitan etc, and crowned the most beautiful woman by Maxim.

Her fitness regime includes Surfing, Spinning and Boxing.
She avoids processed food and is a fan of organic food, and she tries to plan and prepare all her meals.
She has a soft spot for ice-cream, (like most of us do) and spoils herself with one on her Cheat day.

Isn’t she still looking fabulous at 31?
