This isn’t directly Korea-related, but as being in Korea has helped the progress and well, it happened while I was here, I felt like I could post it.
Anyway, I’ve had a personal goal of becoming more toned/trim and losing some of the pudge around my belly…and well, just trying to be healthier.
I don’t know how much I’ve lost because (1) I don’t have a scale and (2) it’s never really been about the number for me, just the look and how I feel.
I’ve liked how I look, but I just wanted to tweak here and there or improve. Just trying to get healthier. And well, I think my hard work has made itself known. I’ve been able to notice the results for a few weeks now, and it makes me feel a bit narcissistic to say it, but I’m so so proud of my results. A bit more to go, but I’m so thrilled. I’ve noticed my oblique muscles on my stomach becoming more defined, more toned arms and working on the legs. But ahhhhhh!! Yay!! 😀
Also, I’ve had 3 people in the past week mention how they see a difference.
Just wanted to re-iterate that I’m doing this the healthy way and I’m not starving myself or anything. Trying to eat more fruit and cut out the junk. Also, in Korea, I (and everyone) walk EVERYWHERE. Granted, you can take a cab, but coupled with the diet change, stress and increased exercise, people lose weight when they come here. (Happened in Europe too. Just because these cities are more walking-friendly. Nice large sidewalks with plenty of room for bikes too!)
Anyway, yay me!! 😀 All those ab exercises, planks and pushups are paying off 😀
