C-Lium Lose More, Live More: The Final Journey

The C-Lium Fibre Lose More, Live More campaign ended last September 20, 2012 with a press conference held at the Medicard Lifestyle Center. I will miss this establishment because this is where the C-Lium campaign started, and where our bond and support group started.

Mommy and lifestyle bloggers were all prepped up during the event. Thanks to SM Ladies Fashion for our clothes and Mithi Lacaba of Tipping Point Collective for the styling, you made us more confident in flaunting ourselves in front of the media people. That night was a culmination and a celebration of our month-long journey to health and wellness.

C-lium Lose More, Live More Week 4: CrossFit Work-out

Week 4 of my C-Lium Lose More, Live More journey is the most memorable and action-packed of all. This week, C-Lium Ambassadors met up at the Philippine Army Gym for the CrossFit workout. CrossFit is new to me, so I visited their website first for me to know what to expect. And whoa, I got scared at first, at the same time, curious about CrossFit.

CrossFit workouts are constantly varied movements executed at high intensity, thus every workout is different and you will rarely do the same thing twice. The workouts themselves are completely scalable, which means that a new participant and an elite athlete can complete the same workout with changes in load and intensity. CrossFit workouts will deliver phenomenal fitness in and of themselves or as a compliment to your sport-specific training regime.

Basically, CrossFit is not your ordinary workout, but it is for ordinary people looking for extraordinary results.

My C-lium Lose More, Live More journey starts now

Ever since I gave birth (that’s one-and-half years ago), I never came back to my pre-pregnancy weight. And to make it worse, it seems that my weight is going anything but up. I always make this an excuse, “I’m a mommy and I need to eat to keep up with the demands of my toddler”.

Jeff already pointed out this to me, “We need to start living healthier so that we can live longer to witness and enjoy the growing up years of our daughter.”

We tried starting a healthy lifestyle by running and eating more healthy food. Unfortunately, the accessibility of fastfood and being lazy got us back into junk-food-eating-couch-potatoes.

Last month, I was invited to be part of the Bloggers’ Edition of C-lium Lose More, Live More program. Selected bloggers are challenged on a one-month weight loss and special prizes will be given to those with the biggest drop in BMI, bad cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels. I’m really not after the prizes but I joined because I think I really need this as motivation for me to start on a healthy lifestyle again.

Challenge Accepted!
