operation fitness…

Whoah! What’s going on here is what I’m sure you’re asking when you read the title of my blog. This has nothing to do with my photography, but it’s got everything to do with me personally.

I am by no means an expert when it comes to nutrition, exercise and dieting but ever since I picked up the camera and started shooting professionally 3 years ago, I have pretty much abandoned my routine fitness schedule altogether. I kept on making excuses for myself and like everyone else, continued to pay my monthly fee at the gym that I would visit once a month if I’m lucky. After my move to the beautiful city of Chicago 4 weeks ago, one of my many goals was to get back into fitness and stop making excuses. It’s true that I am petite (joke was, I weigh 100 lbs. soaking wet, true to a certain extent) and people would ask me why I need to work out when I seem to be in a great shape. Seeming to be in great shape and feeling like I’m in a great shape are two different things. After joining pinterest and seeing so many motivational quotes, I am motivated to get back into shape. This is a very personal project for myself: Operation Fitness.

It’s about me trying to find that balance between my personal life, professional life (as a full time teacher and a part time photographer) and everything else life-related. It’s meant to encourage me to focus on what matters most to me. So far I’ve been working out 3 times a week (30 minutes on the treadmill or  stair climber (ugh, how boring I know!), 10-15 minutes with free weights and abdominal workout). It comes to about 45 minutes of me spending time to focus on just me!  Here are some photos of my progress the past 2 weeks.

Wish me luck and I will try to post every two weeks to not over expose my bare belly to the world!
