fittripgoal21 asked: I saw a body transformation of you and i would like to know how you did it precisely 😊 you have now such a beautiful body!!! 😁😞
Thank you! This “transformation” happened the summer before my senior year of high school. And really, my weight loss involved exercising daily, reducing my intake, cutting out junk, and making better decisions about my day-to-day activities.
To go in detail, I exercised everyday over the summer. Whether it was 30 minutes of cardio or a 2.5 hour full body work out, I made sure to include as much exercise as I could without pushing myself beyond my limits. Most of my exercise was running and swimming along with some weight training.
With the reduced intake, I honestly ate like crap up until then. I had a ridiculously unhealthy relationship with junk food, soda, and constantly ate without having any sort of limitations. However, during my weight loss, I was very strict with what I ate. I watched my intake and I completely cut soda out of my life. I drank like a gallon and a half of water daily, as well. I didn’t let myself eat junk food except once or twice a week, but even that, I didn’t do very much. I also cut out a lot of carbs in my diet, so I avoided rice (which was very hard to do, since I’m Korean).
For day-to-day activities, I just made better decisions. When I was asked to go eat out with my friends, I didn’t let myself finish all of the food at once; I’d take half of it home and eat it for another meal. Frankly, the meal sizes at restaurants are ridiculously large and you really don’t need to be eating all of the food they give you all at once. Also, instead of driving to the gym or to a friend’s house, I’d bike or run there. When I did laundry, I’d just walk around the house as I folded the clothes. While I was waiting for food to heat up in the microwave, I’d do squats during the time given. Just little things I can do to move around more.
In writing, it seems like just steps that you can simply take, but it was very hard. It was more of a mental struggle than it was physical. I had to always push and argue with myself to push myself beyond my comfort zone.
Best of luck to you!
iann-k asked: Hi there! I saw that you took part in the Color Run event and I was wondering if you could share your experience? I'm thinking of doing it this year (the Australian version) :)
It was GREAT! I didn’t prepare for it very well. The last time I ran before the color run was maybe…two weeks prior to the event, so I wasn’t very confident going into it. Also, I was really tired because I only slept for three hours and had to get there at 6 o’clock in the morning for registration, but it was SO fun. I was pumped up for it because it is a race after all and there were thousands of people who were doing it alongside me. And I thought I’d walk some of it, but I ran the entire thing, because I looked forward to the next color to be sprayed with. And the color powder is made out of cornstarch, so it’s relatively easy to wash off and besides breathing it in when you’re running through, it was easy to work with. The huge clouds of color are highly visible so you’re encouraged to run faster and consistently! You should definitely partake in it. It’s not a very strenuous race, after all, it’s only 3.2 miles, but it’s just a fun event and it does go towards charity.
Definitely recommend it!

I had a long talk with another friend and decided to call off the bet that would require me to get down to 105 by the end of the summer, and here’s why:
Ever since I started losing weight, I had a ridiculously unhealthy relationship with the scale. I told myself I needed to lose weight because…
