The last time I worked out was before Christmas! Had been down with cough+flu and my body was so weak that I even fainted in the train once that weekend (it didn’t help that I skipped breakfast AND was on my period). It was the worse feeling EV-ER.

Been starting to feel a little flabby and this persistent cough+flu is definitely taking its time to go away. That didn’t stop me from hitting the gym yesterday though, finally! My first workout of the year! Did 10 mins cardio, shoulder workout and 12 mins rowing. Woke up this morning with my body thanking me with soreness.

Question of the day comes from Sophie:

She asks: What is the best exercise to flatten belly?

The best way is less carbs, more cardio and overall resistance training. Abs workouts should be a primary exercise while you work on the more important muscle groups such as legs, back and shoulders. Check out the Explode Program and you will notice that I didn’t set a day for just doing abs. You need to work on your whole body to flatten your tummy. Ever seen a guy with flabby arms and a flat tummy? Nope. Best exercise? Ab workout of the month for October. If that’s too hardcore for you, try using the workout ball.

  1. Hi Fay,

    Just wondering, what’s your take on cardio? What’s considered cardio to you, and what do you think about new research on cardiovascular exercise to be least effective in ‘shredding down’?

  2. I’m 45kg, standing at 159cm and I’m petite and I get skinny from alot of people which I don’t like. I like the idea of looking toned, fit and curvy just like you. I did some squats and lifting weights, cutting down alot on rice and substituting with more lean meat, fruits and vege but instead of looking fit & strong, I lose 1kg within a week which made me look more skinny & flat and I don’t know what went wrong. I don’t want to lose weight. Help.
