Mommy dance workout


I’ve heard a lot of good things about this latest workout craze from my friends and high school classmates. They enjoy zumba dances a lot that they’ve include this as part of their morning ritual. Because of the positive things they are telling about zumba, I’m planning to try it one of these days. I love to dance especially when no one is watching. 😀 I’ve seen a couple of zumba videos and trombone mouthpieces last night and the steps seem easy enough to follow unlike with other dance fitness workout with complicated or strenuous routine. I hope to squeeze in a few extra minutes everyday to enjoy this new-found dance workout. Are you into zumba dance right now? Does it help you lose weight? Your comment may encourage others to try this dance craze as well.

Growing family of C-Lium users

This year is an important year for me because finally I was able to start my weight loss journey. Three months ago, I participated in a weight loss challenge for bloggers. I lost 7 pounds during the six-week challenge. It was tough, but I never gave up. Now, I’ve lost a total of 13 pounds and five inches off my waistline.

I’m still a work in progress, but I can safely say I trim down through proper diet, exercise and aid of C-lium fibre everyday. Fiber is known to prevent obesity and all the chronic diseases associated with aging. I’m taking C-lium before breakfast and it really helps me shed those unwanted fats and even makes me feel younger. Friends also say I look younger. 🙂

More and more people – practically from all walks of life – are attesting to the health benefits of C-Lium fibre. Read their testimonies.

Weight-loss reality show finalists (L-R) Raffy Tan, Hazel Chua, Angela Lupango and Art Mendoza.

Art Mendoza lost 129lbs after joining a weight loss reality show and was first introduced to daily use of C-lium Fibre.  “Before, I couldn’t even fit into a car seat. It was so embarrassing. But with regular exercise, proper diet and C-lium, I’ve managed to keep the weight off.” says Art.  Angela Lupango also lost 78lbs in the same program and made C-lium a daily habit. Now, with renewed confidence and a fitter physique, Angela was able to fulfill her dream of gracing the cover of a magazine.

Like Art and Angela,  Raffy Tan and Hazel Chua only trusts C-lium Fibre to keep them fit. They all wanted to maintain their desired weight and stay healthy to fulfill their dreams. “I used to weigh 206 lbs but with regular exercise, discipline with what i eat and daily supplementation of C-lium, i am now at my healthiest at 150lbs and inspire others to keep fit.” says Hazel. Raffy on the other hand also fought a hard battle with his weight which affected his health. “I really needed to lose the weight because at 287lbs, i was becoming sickly. Now at 207lbs, i am able to maintain my weight and conquer my dream of running a 42k.”

The best food supplement for a healthy lifestyle (the C-lium experience)

C-Lium Fibre, the well renowned product that promotes health and wellness program, once again proved its worth as a best food supplement available in the market as evidenced by the astounding reviews of people who have discovered its wonders.

These reviews and testimonies were chronicled in the recently concluded event, “C-lium Lose More, Live More Bloggers’ Edition” last September 20 at the Medicard Lifestyle Center, Makati City. The event was participated in by bloggers in Metro Manila.

During the event, 14 C-Lium brand ambassadors as well as the winners of the C-Lium online promo were presented. Each of them were given at least a minute to present themselves in the stage and show how C-Lium enhanced their figures. The ambassadors, who battled it out for the 30-day challenge, executed demonstrations on proper nutrition and various exercise routines.

The transformations in each of the participants were also revealed through the brief video presentation during the event. The before-and-after photos of the ambassadors were proofs to their C-Lium Lose More, Live More journey.

The Biggest Losers

During the event, the names of the winners in each of the contest categories were also announced. Azrael Coladilla was adjudged the winner in the Largest Amount of Weight Loss, which was measured through the drop in Body Mass Index. Allan Ray Enriquez pegged the biggest drop in cholesterol level while Mauie Flores garnered the biggest reduction in sugar level.

The 10 winners for C-lium Fibre’s Lose More Live More Promo were also named, which included Pehpot Pineda, Nicquee Oblepias, to name a few.

My C-lium Experience

Being included as one of the ambassadors is perhaps one of the most exciting and unforgettable experiences I had so far.

I was hesitant at first, though. I was nervous during the whole duration of the presentation. Who would not be when all eyes and cameras were focus on you right at that very moment? I wasn’t even required to use fantastic microphones to introduce ourselves, but still I’m nervous.

Along with the other ambassadors, C-lium fibre has been my partner throughout the six-week challenge and I am still using the food supplement as part of a healthy lifestyle.

I’m so happy that I lost 7 pounds off the pre-challenge weight and I continue to lose more until now.

Commitment To Stay Fit

The C-lium Lose More, Live More Bloggers’ Edition challenge may have ended, but my commitment to reach my goal to lose more and stay fit will stay on.

I will continue to work harder to be able to reach my desired weight following the things I have learned throughout the challenge – proper nutrition and exercise.

You can also adapt different exercises that suit your stamina. The one that works for me is the 4-minute exercise, the work out of the day (WOD) I learned from Crossfit Manila, and 30 minutes to an hour of Zumba. I have also added different workout techniques for variation.

This is not the end but the beginning of a journey towards better health. Will keep you posted as I make an update of my weight loss progress hereon.
