Fit 'n Right: The Science of Sexy part 1

25 November 2011

This is the first in a series of updates about the Fit 'n Right: The Science of Sexy challenge I agreed to participate in :)

Last Friday I went to Gold's Gym in Robinsons Galleria for my initial measurement and to hopefully work out a bit. I packed my big Nike gym bag with everything I would need (towels, workout clothes, water bottle, toiletries) but when I got there I was just interviewed a bit by one of the trainers. I didn't get to work out anymore.

Almost another week passed. I always meant to go back to have my first "weigh-in" but something always came up. Today I decided to I won't take any excuses anymore so armed with my huge gym bag again, I went to Gold's Gym in Waltermart after work.

When I got there, one of the trainers measured me. And by measured, I meant literally measured me using a tape measure. She didn't get my weight, BMI and body fat anymore when I said these three have already been noted during the launch. (Surprise, surprise, I've actually gained 2lbs since.)

For the purposes of complete transparency, I will let you see my measurements:

These were taken during the launch
These were taken earlier today.
After measuring me, the trainer told me I can actually work out there already but I declined. I don't really feel comfortable in large rooms of complete strangers, especially when doing something I am admittedly not good at. So what did I do? Well, I rode an FX to Technohub, and then worked out at our office gym. Luckily, I was the only one there so our gym instructor was able to focus on me and the weight-gain program I can follow.

I don't think I have any chance of winning the 3 day-2 night stay in Boracay as well as the House of Laurel outfit as I am terribly underweight and has very low body-fat. Still, I am thankful I got to participate since it has made me realize that I really do need to take care of my body. My goal now is to gain weight BUT not body fat. It's great that I have Fit 'n Right to make sure excess fats are blocked and burned ;)
