Geek To Gladiator: October

October is the best month of the year simply because I get to celebrate my birthday. This of course means dessert and a few cheat meals throughout the month. I’ve definitely improved in both healthy eating habits and exercise in spite of my birthday celebrations, especially towards the end of the month. Even a wedding

Geek To Gladiator: September

Suffice to say, September went a little better than August on the exercising front. Minimal speedhumps were thrown my way but towards the middle to end of the month I struggled keeping a healthy eating mindset. My gym attendance definitely improved and most of the days I didn’t go were days I worked double shifts

A Comprehensive List Of Exercises I Love To Hate

Having reset my fitness journey through August, I’ve now become a regular at the gym once again. As I incorporate more exercises into my routine and actually try to challenge myself once in a while, I’ve formed a love-hate relationship with some of these exercises. Since I have a job where I’m on my feet

Geek To Gladiator: August

A fitness challenge wouldn’t be complete with some speed humps and with flu season at its peak, I had to take a break after a week. Since I work in hospitality, this meant my step count was minimal and I practically put myself on house arrest because I didn’t want to infect all my fellow

And you know what happened? Not much, really. I didn’t gain 10 kilos, I haven’t lost all my cardio endurance, and

Geek To Gladiator: March

So March was interesting. I took more photos which means I can actually remember some of the things I did over the past month. March was by no means perfect, but it involved a few changes that helped with a more active lifestyle and found something to help with my health in general. At this

Geek To Gladiator: February

First of all, I managed to take almost no photos throughout February so I’ll be summing up my month with GIFs rather than #foodporn pics. Now that I’ve gone through my little disclaimer, I can get to the nitty-gritty. February was the first month of my challenge and, as some things go, it was equal

Geek To Gladiator: The Beginning

Here I go again. It seems I have a knack for writing about my new year’s resolutions a full month after the initial celebrations. Luckily I always manage to wrap my head around the craziness of everything just in time for the Lunar New Year. Maybe my body is just attuned that way? Last year
