So, Bingers. Seven months in into the quarantine and I am so sure you too are missing the gym. I really do! I even talked about it before. If you are like me who has also started setting up a gym at home, then good for us, gym rats! You know what they say, #FitnessGoals. But as I have also mentioned, looking good is part workout and part diet. So, with every workout, a good post-workout meal is important. Now, let me share with you some easy yet really yummy post-workout sandwich recipes.Read more about BINGE ON THIS: Easy Post-Workout Sandwich Recipes …
Reading Time: 3 minutesWe all want to lose weight for different reasons – for our health, to achieve the norms of the society, or to feel better. Personally, I lost weight for both health purposes and to feel good about myself. Growing up, I was a fat kid. My heaviest was at over 100 kg! As a fat kid, I was teased, bullied, and skipped on opportunities. It helped that I had the brains and I was always on top of class but other than that, being fat was bad for me overall. So, when I reached the age of 20, I became more self-conscious thus the drive to lose weight. In doing so, I tried different approaches: working out, health supplements, keto diet, and now Intermittent Fasting. Let’s talk about the keto diet. When I did it in 2017-2018, I saw RESULTS! But I stopped after almost a year despite being satisfied with it and here are why:

I really do hope that you are still doing fine because I am, despite the INTENSE boredom and lockdown fever that hit me few weeks after the lockdown has started. In addressing it, I have done several activities to curb my attention: cooking, vlogging, gardening, and working out. And yes, let’s talk about the latter- working out. For regular gym-goers like I am, hitting the gym was a regular activity when our lives were still in normal, pre-COVID. But by the second week of March 2020, when the government-imposed lockdown happened nationwide, our gym-going routine was put on a halt. Our gains were lost, and weights increased. Well, for some because lucky me, I learned to love home workouts and I invested on my home gym setup. Recently, however, the government has announced that they will be lifting restrictions and gyms will be reopened soon. So, I asked myself, “should I return to the gym during the pandemic?”
Reading Time: 3 minutesHi there, Bingers! So it’s been almost 3 months since we got on lockdown due to COVID-19. Since then, we spent every single day at home because we are restricted and it is not safe. In fact, I already finished lots of TV shows and movies on Netflix! I have done a rewatch of my favorite series and even tried new ones such as Thai BL and K-Dramas. But you know what it is not healthy to stay stagnant. We still have to keep on moving. The big question, however, is how to do it? Especially now that gyms are closed and it is terrifying to jog outside (not to mention the summer heat!). Lucky for us, I found some apps and YouTube channels that help me stay on track with my fitness goals. Bingers, check out these sites and apps for your home workout! And yes, if you also don’t have equipment at home, there’s no need to worry!

Reading Time: 2 minutesBingers, how often do you join fun runs? Often probably. I mean, they are fun! With all the various themes that they have- zombies, food, animals. Name it! But if there is a fun run that I would love to participate in, it’s one that will be for a cause. One of them is McDonald’s Stripes Run!
