Anonymous said: Do you personally do any routines or exercises that help lose inner thigh fat? Seeing that you went from 21 in to 19 in got me curious! And do you know any good cardio exercises to help lose stomach fat? Please and thank you do much!

Running is the best thing, I would say. Just make the time to run everyday or every other day. Personally, aside from running, I do Tae Kwon Do which is a LOT of kicking so it’s a great workout for my legs which I think helped a lot in losing the thigh fat. You can try those workout videos too, for some good cardio. I enjoy Tae Bo mainly because I grew up with it’s a lot of kickboxing which fits to my liking. In addition to working out, you also need to diet (as difficult as it may be :/) if you want good results.

Anonymous said: omg what have you been doing to lose weight/gain muscle? like, a certain workout plan or what?

Staying convicted! I’ve been dieting and staying active, and as long as you keep at it for a good amount of time, there will surely be results. More specifically, I eat well for the majority of the week (like oatmeal, tuna, chicken, fish, fruits, veggies) and I’ll have my cheat days on the weekends so I won’t go crazy.

For workouts, I’ll lift for about an hour using dumbbells (targeting shoulders, biceps, triceps, and back) and then another half hour to hour of cardio. I try to work out as vigorously as I can about 3-4 times a week. In general though, I like to stay pretty active be it running, dancing, shooting hoops, parkour, martial arts, or just longboarding around my neighborhood.

I’ve been keeping a log of my fitness/measurements progress since the beginning of this year and it’s pretty crazy what I’ve actually accomplished from when I started ‘til now:

January 19, 2012

  • Weight: 112 lbs
  • Waist: 26”, Hips: 35 1/2”, Thigh: 21”

June 10, 2012

  • Weight: 107-109 lbs
  • Waist: 25”, Hips: 34”, Thigh: 19”
  • *also gained more tone and muscle! ^^

I would write down my current measurements, then set new (reasonable/attainable) goals for myself about every six weeks and then work to achieve them. It took six months because I wasn’t really strict on my diet until about the beginning of May when I started lifting weights. I’m now at the point where I am generally happy with my body and just need to maintain it by continuing to eat healthy and stay active.

Day 1 of Mission: Get Buff for Korra Cosplay
Just had a refresher lifting lesson with my brother (thanks, bro!) targeting my shoulders, back, biceps, and triceps. I’m also going grocery shopping for this low carb/high protein diet I’ll be starting (OMG NO SUGAR OR SNACKS I’M GONNA DIE BUT I’LL DO MY BEST). I’ve got two months.
