My Big Weight Loss Plan: Gold's Gym, barre3 and the Century Tuna Diet

These past few months, I have admittedly been trying out all sorts of different things with hopes of losing weight, but haven't really settled on a proper plan… until now.

I've tried out different gyms. I've tried out different diets. All to no result because I never stuck to anything and just gave up mid-way. I am finally taking things seriously now, though - mostly coz I have a crazy unexpected Boracay deadline, but also coz it's high time I started fitting into my clothes again, methinks.

So, here's what I plan to do:

1. Go to Gold's Gym every single day.

Okay, I'll be the first one to admit that going every single day for a month probably won't happen, but I'm definitely going to try my best. Why? Because if I've learned anything from my capricious months of trying to lose weight, it's that Gold's Gym is my best bet at doing so.

See, Gold's Gym has great equipment for cardio and weight-lifting. Plus, they've got group exercises, a boxing area and trainers to help along the way. Gold's Gym is basically the one-stop shop for working out so to speak, regardless of whether you want to lose weight, tone or just get more fit, in general.

Check out my first article on Gold's Gym here: Stronger with Gold's Gym.

2. Go to barre3 every single day.

Okay, fine. So I like to set unreachable goals. But if I don't tell myself to go every day, chances are I probably won't. The thing with barre3 is: even though it doesn't involve much cardio, I could see results with it, even after just the first two weeks.

It tightens everything up, takes unwanted inches off and targets the entire body, as well, thus making sure that you stay proportioned and feel good at the same time every time. By the way, they've got a new barre3 studio at Shangri-La Mall, located in The Spa, as usual. :)

3. Follow the Century Superbods Diet.

I gave up on this diet after the second week. Read about my first week of following it here: Century Superbods Challenge Week 1

That photo pretty much explains it all. I was miserable for going on a diet. And I just couldn't do it. I just couldn't. I love Family Mart twirls, Starbucks, French fries, pasta and anything sweet and carb-ridden that you can think of too much.

But I know now that I don't really have a choice in the matter. I have 25 days to lose enough weight to look decent come beach-time (not even good; just decent!) and that's something I need to ingrain into my brain.

Can I do it? Let's hope so. If I can't, then expect a lot of photos of me at the beach... wearing a dress. Sigh.

Moral of the story: never eat your feelings after a breakup. Ever.
