Steam Room and Sauna Time

It has been long overdue but at long last I have time to go to the gym and just relax in the steam bath and sauna. I have always enjoyed spending this type of "me" time.

I don't think I am the only one who indulges in this guilt-less pleasure. I mean, who wouldn't want to go to a steam bath or sauna. It not only makes you feel all relaxed after a session but has countless health
benefits as well not to mention the biggest bonus of making you feel all glowing, smooth and clean. Hehe. =)

Here are just some of the benefits of why you should go to a steam room or sauna if you can:
  1. Eliminates toxins
  2. Rejuvenate and hydrates the skin
  3. Boosts the immune system
  4. Enhances the respiratory system
  5. Relieves stress and relaxes the muscles
After working so hard for weeks and months, it is time to reward ourselves from time to time. This is also a perfect way to rejuvenate and get us ready to start another busy week ahead.

adidas King of the Road 2009

In less than a week, I will be joining my second 10k run. I will be participating in one of the biggest races in Manila that most runners are excited to join, the adidas King of the Road 2009.

I think I was still back in college when I first joined an adidas KOTR marathon. I had lots of fun. I guess because I have always enjoyed running and I was with some running teammates/ friends back then which made it more enjoyable.

This year I started my running adventure. I am looking forward to what I can conquer within myself in terms of the distance, speed, time and achieving the healthy, fit lifestyle in the long run.

This run is not just for runners and enthusiasts like me but also for those who would like to help a good cause. Proceeds from the adidas King of the Road 2009 shall benefit the adidas Run for Love campaign. This is an adidas program across Asia that was developed to use running to show our local communites we care and to make a difference. Locally, Run for Love via adidas King of the Road 2009 shall bring hope to and change thousands of lives of poor and abused children cared for by Hope worldwide Philippines.*

My Journey to Being Healthy

With this year half gone, I think it is but appropriate for me to start my long term goal of living a healthy lifestyle again.

I have always been a very athletic person. When I was a growing up, I would be participating in all kinds of sports. I would always be part of the varsity team. I would be in competitions or races. In college, the trunk of my car always had three different kinds of rubber shoes and a big gym bag of sports clothes handy. I was always ready for any action I could find.

But this all changed when I started working, got married and had my family. I got too caught up with all my new duties and responsibilities that I neglected my real passion - to always be fit and healthy. Then later on, I realized that my life was not complete. It was not balanced. I needed to get back to my active and healthy lifestyle again. My mind and body was calling for it.

It may have taken me awhile to actually act on this realization. But as they say, it's better late than never. And that's where I am now. I am now starting my journey to being healthy again.

Why don't you join me?
