Kawaii Fitness going on HIATUS


Yes you heard that right. Kawaii Fitness will be going under a temporary HIATUS. This will probably last for about 3-5 months depending on how things go with life. I know its really sad and disappointing most specially to my new readers and followers here in Kawaii Fitness.

I promise you guys that I will make it up to ya’ll BIG TIME! It’s just that a lot of thing came up most specially with university and I am unable to manage this site as much as I want it to without compromising everything else that is equally important. :(

But with that said, I will be dropping in from time to time to post new recipes and perhaps printables and motivational quotes for ya’ll.

Anyway I hope to see you guys around still.

Thank you so much for being so patient with this.

MY Before and After Photo Marks the END OF CHALLENGE!


Today marks the last day of Jade and My 68 – Day Challenge!!! I know I wasn’t able to update as religiously as she was with blog thing, mainly because of university took a huge toll and a chunk of my time. But I did my best to squeeze in everything. I really had to give up religious blogging in order to fit all my schedules in. But anyway here is my obligatory progress report for the 68 day challenge.

Lara Novales 68 day challenge Before and After Progress photos

 

The day 1 photo is actually 141kg. Yes I really am yo-yoing because of school and stuff. Its like 135-141 -135-141 over and over. But the 68 day challenge plus the SHape up at the gym helped me get out of the 135 -133 plateau.

in 68 days I managed to lose 11lbs. I yo-yoed during the whole thing and I think right now I may be 131lbs but it doesn’t really matter.

Im pretty pleased with this (Before and after/ progress photo). It really helped having someone join you on this journey. An setting smaller goals is really good! There were days when I absolutely pigged out (specially during PMS-days,) but I did my best to eat clean and moderately.)

Anyway this concludes my 68 day challenge and today is the 1st of August and Im going to start a new challenge today.

Day 88 | Just dropping by


Hello everyone. I know I know it has been forever (yet again). I have been very busy as of late. Prelim exams just ended and now is the start of the midterm season (not the exam though).

I just wanted to drop by yet again to let you guys know how things have been going with my 68-day challege with Jade. 

Though I havent been updating much, I have been trying to get this challenge done (even during my busy schedules) I had to give up blogging for a while in order to accomodate everything else I had to do which includes going to the gym. 

Right now am finally below the 60kg mark and it wasn’t easy getting there. I felt like I have been on this yo-yo plateau for the longest time. But finally after stopping gym and starting back to gym I got my weight to nudge a bit. 

I cant wait to start making video blogs again with Kawaii Fitness. I need to focus more on this blog and getting more content up again. 

Do you have any suggestions and ideas or request? Do you have a post to share with us? Please do email us at mykawaiifitness(at)gmail(dot)com

Until later!! See ya all!!

Day 68 | A Short Update


Kawaii Fitness Photo of the day:

Journal:

Well hello there Kawaii Fitsters! its been 18 days since I last updated its been such a roller coaster ride with me and juggling my schedules. School, work, gym. I cant even blog anymore because i am so filled with too many things. Lesson learned, I will only take up a few subjects next semester so that I have time to do what I want and have to do that is aside from school.

Im sorry this is a very lame and short update. I just stole some time to let you know Im still alive and kicking.  on my next post will be some progress photos.

Kawaii Fitness Photo of the day:

Fit is not a destination

Journal:

Well hello there Kawaii Fitsters! it is day 50 for me and this is the half way mark of my 100 days. it usually this last half that is always the hardest. So I’m kicking it off by joining this event at our gym. 

So it is a 6 week challenge. roughly about 42-ish days perfect for the remaining time I have on my hands. if i win this I get cash prize which is a big deal for me because that prize money will go to my cosplay this October!!  I NEED MONEY FOR MY COSPLAY! hahahah! So there. I’ll be talking with my trainer about this and I hope he whips my butt some more. I am half way there but I need that extra little push because it seems I have hit yet another plateau. So wish me luck you guys!

Here was my food intake for Day 50:

Breakfast:    2  sunny side ups and red rice, 
Snack:       ramyun (Korean noodles) and a mango smoothie
Lunch:      red rice and creamy chicken with broccoli 
Dinner:     chicken burrito and a surfer’s green smoothie

Do you think I can win that challenge?

Day 49 |Muscle Weighs More Than Fat


Kawaii Fitness Photo of the day:

Journal:

Well hello there Kawaii Fitsters! Lara here again with another blog post. So I bought a weighing scale for my birthday… and ever since I have been obsessed with it (sad to say). I have had a very bad relationship with it in the past. It was a great factor in my previous disordered eating a few years ago (which I have gotten over), now it is there to test me and my strength. 

I know a lot of you out there are being controlled by what is written on that scale, but remember IT IS JUST A NUMBER.  I have to keep reminding myself that as well. Since I weight lift, I am much heavier but  my dress size shrinks. Sometimes I still freak out at the higher number on it but I have to remind myself that muscles weigh more than fat. 

Check out these photos for reference. 

As you can see, though their after photos says bigger on the scale, but their bodies are much more lean and toned. HOORAH for muscles. So this serves as a reminder for me and for everyone else, that numbers on the scale aren’t everything. You’ll be surprised to see that though you are “heavier” (says scale-sama) you look better because of muscle growth and tone. :) 

Before I end this post. here is a photo of my lunch in university (yes I have packed lunch just so that I have some semblance of control over my food. And then here is a horrid photo (selfie) of me being all “STAY AWAY FROM ME BECAUSE I AM EATING LUNCH WHILE DOING MY ECON HOMEWORK” heeheehee. 

There you have it. how about you? Are you going to let the scale control your life?
