Staying in shape is something that I admittedly, for the most part, have taken for granted. These days, as opposed to how I used to find it a breeze to lose excess pounds, it’s not as easy anymore. It must have something to do with age. I try to do planks everyday, it used to be a minute in the morning and another at night, but as expected, I’m back to just once a day. I try to squeeze in some squats and dumbbell lifting but I haven’t been very religious about it. So they don’t really count, I guess.
When it comes to staying fit, I’d have to say that it does take discipline and commitment. While I’m not really hopeless that I’d be able to muster enough of both, I might as well test the waters of non-invasive helps like Allura’s Vaser Shape Plus.
First off, a free body consult with Allura‘s pretty and charming manager, Ms. Mari. I’d have say that I gained quite a bit more understanding of the metabolic functions of the body, the significant difference of men’s collagen from women’s, which got me really wide-eyed that it’s basically my take away from the few minutes I sat in her office. Regardless of age, a man’s collagen is naturally more dense than that of a woman’s. “No fair!” Was my initial reaction. This explains why men’s skin are tighter, if they expand at all, they don’t look as flabby as women who add the same weight. But it does make sense, God has designed our bodies like such to accommodate the growth of the baby inside our bodies. It’s amazing, really!
This also explains why women age faster than women. Of course, that’s taking into account that men don’t usually use sunscreen as often as women. Which explains why the former statement sometimes go unnoticed. For one, men don’t use makeup and we do! Take off the makeup and the use of sunscreen, women will look more aged for sure and that’s because of the formation of the collagen inside our skin. (more…)
