My First Attempt of Indoor Bike Challenge Exercise Class in Pampanga!!!

The pain you feel today will be the strength you will feel tomorrow!!!  

Last June 24, saturday, I was requested by a blogger friend to subsitute her and join one of the events of San Marino in Robinsons Starmills Pampanga for an Indoor Bike Challenge. I agreed to attend because I really love going out of town. To be relieve from busy life and noises in the Metro. I was early for the call time at 10am. I'm one of those persons who arrived first in CBTL Cubao and I met purpleplum fairy in flesh once again after a year that we bumped together in Thyroid Event in Holiday Inn,Makati. Thanks Vance for letting me join on this trip. 

So, here's a little story of my First Indoor Bike Challenge Exercise Class I've experience.

At first, we need to register and complete the card, they need to check our Blood Pressure and Body Mass Index and also, a Diet Consultation was given for our additional understanding on how Omega3 helps in regulating our overall health in terms of our daily activities and food lifestyle.  Here's my registration card. Thank God I was able to know my weight so, I could watch out my eating habits and correct it right away.

Indeed, it was freaking semi-difficult, challenging and energetic event. The first minutes was ok, but as the remaining time clicks and exercise movements are being implemented & leveled-up. I started to feel a little contraction on my hips, thighs and arms. 

As the coach trainor named Nicki, started to increase our speed and feel the rhythm of the music. Each time I paddled, I felt my heartbeat going so fast. As I put some weight on my arms, elbow and hand for squats. I'm starting to feel the difficulty of the Exercise.

I've been using a Bicycle Ergometer at home, but, I have few intervals and rest. Not like this, you cannot stop. You need to take a deep breathe and follow all the Exercise.  I had followed all the movements properly. I executed it with all my strength and endurance. But, it became more severe that I almost give up. When, we tried to stand and sit while, padling the bike. I guess, my muscles begins to weakened.

I'm starting to feel lighting pain in my buttocks. But, I'm quite worried that  i'll be having sciatic pain because the seat cover is so hard and quite high even,it was already adjusted. Finally, its the last peroid, we lower our pace and start cooling down for a stretching.

I'm very glad. I was able to finished without fainting and without drinking water because I need to concentrate. By the way, I perspired and drink water instantly after. 

I was so proud and happy for myself. I was able to experience Indoor Bike Challenge Exercise Class infront of many people. Eventhough, I do exercise using Bicycle Ergometer within my own privacy at home. I'm amazed, I was able to survive the class.

For Sport enthusiasts and a beginner for Indoor Bike Cycling, try this cycling sport event. At first, you'll be tested to give up but as soon as your pace and muscle adapts to the challenge, you'll definitely love this sport.

Anyways, to give you some clear ideas of the event. Here are my Photo Gallery:

Proper Reminders are given prior to the Indoor Bike Challenge Class and Race, to avoid injuries and any accidents.

All the Indoor Bike Participants were able to do some stretching and feel the real movements of the Race.

All the Participants and Registrants got a chance to check their BP and BMI prior to the Indoor Bike Class or Race.

To Live Healthy and Love more
A Diet Consultation was given to monitor your eating habits and to eat right kind of food like Omega 3 of San Marino Corned Tuna Flakes to achieve a healthier you.

All Registrants were able to play a WII Digital Tennis Game Awesome!! It's like your playing the real game. 

Love this San Marino Corned Tuna Flavors rich with Omega3, Good for the Heart...

Experience Albay with their History & Magayon Festivity!!!

I never been in Bicol. But, I dreamt and wish to visit Albay, soon. And the reason why, is I want to see the mystic beauty of the perfect cone "The Legendary Mayon Volcano".  

I've been fascinated with Mt. Mayon since, my previous officemates/friends in the Airport talks about many stories of the volcano and the beautiful places of Bicol. Three of them lives in Bicol. They wake up each morning seeing this beautiful creation. So, I believe ,someday, i'll be visiting this beautiful province of Albay and meet more friendly bicolanos.

So, here's some notes and insights about their place.

Albay is one province with many hidden and known beauties, it bears beauty that is pure, basic and grand.  Albay has a certain charm that will sweep you off your feet and bring you to the time that was or give you a majestic feeling that is simply indescribable.  With fifteen  15 municipalities and three 3 cities, Albay bears so many things to see and experience.

Governor Al Francis Bichara was a gracious host as he welcomed us to his place. Hospitality reflected on the people, from the people  and this was reflected by the people of the various local government units (Dept of Tourism and Dept of Agriculture) and that of Human Explore Travel and Tours.  The tour given to us was both informative and time worthy.  Tiring as it may be BUT truly worth every moment. Our gratitude to Ms. Dorothy Colle and her people from the Department of Tourism Provincial Division Region V – Albay, Ms. Che Rebeta of the Provincial Agriculture Department and Ms. Farah Sobremisana – owner partner of Pepperland Hotel.  They truly made our visit such a wonder thru their efforts and time generosity.

Albay is filled with old churches, old craft making, worthy places to go to, old houses, natural beauties and beautiful festivities.  With magnificent places around the majestic Mayon Volcano, if you do a whole 360 tour like the one we did ours, one would get to see this natural wonder in all its beauty.  Try to learn also the story behind this famous volcano and and unconver the Daragang Magayon mystery.

From the ruins of Cagsawa (with a average guest of 150pax per day) to the churches in Camalig, Ligao, Sto. Domingo and Daraga, to the calm Sumlang Lake and the historic Japanese caves in Quituinan Hills, to the traditional way of metal smiting in Tabaco, farms and various beautiful parks and landmarks all over Albay, you will never have a dull moment when you decide to do a full exploration of the province.  It is also filled of noteworthy food places that you could and should try out (story and review in another write-up).  Albay also has spring resorts with water source coming from near the volcano or underneath the ground making it cool or even cold depending on the time of the year – such resort is D’ Hacienda Spring and Nature Resort in Guinobatan, Albay.

For active people, I would highly recommend for you to try out the Japanese tunnels/caves in Quituinan Hills.  The trek is not that stressful but the crawling (should you be adventurous enough) is like having an archeological dig.  For historical buffs, try seeing the various churches of the different municipalities and compare notes in terms of its style and story behind it.  Should you wish to see various craftsmanship of the place, go to Sumlang Lake to see the woven beauties of Albay, the metal smiting of Tabaco, pottery shops in Tiwi and pili delicacy making in Legazpi.  Don’t forget to visit the various farms in the province that show the resiliency of the people as reflected in their farms – some of them are IG worthy too.

Experience Albay and, you get to see this natural beauty in all its grandeur.  With clouds or without, Mayon will surely captivate you may it be morning, noon, mid afternoon or sunset.  With its romantic yet tragic story behind this beauty, you will definitely want to be welcomed by it every time you are in the said province.

Albay is truly beautiful! The people reflect their place and the place live through its people.

Thank you for reading this Press Release about Albay and Magayon Festival...

Memories of Summer:The Farm Green & Saddle Resort: Reunions that are well-treasured!!!

Rainy Days in June, makes me lingered about my summer memories with my friends.

Yes, I love Summer so much because its the time of the year wherein, I could see my barkada's and mingle with them,either in the beach or in a private pool. Being single and seeing them with their families and children makes my heart jumps for joy. I love listening all their stories and catching up with them. 

What I love most in this Reunion is the place that we had chosen, its a farm-like atmosphere like your having a vacation in a province and you'll be enjoying the nature environment with your whole family. 

Being with them, its like having blasts in the past wherein we could laugh and talked about old memories of College days in La Salle. 

I miss them so much that its been long years of preparation just to make this event possible. Due to busy schedules of our daily lives and responsibilities to our families, we seldom see each other. So, I'm happy that we were able to push through with this Reunion for Summer 2017.

 love and friendship.

The Boodle Fight:

Food brings us together. We all agree on the same food cravings. So, we decided to prepare a long table for a boodle fight.

Love the big shrimp and crabs.

My La Salle Buddies with our families:

The pool is huge, clean and suitable for kids.
Just take proper precautions and monitoring.

I can't forget this memorable outing.
We had lots of fun, catching up with stories of our lives, laughters and even, some bursts of emotions. To sum it up, its better to see your genuine friends, once in a while, to breathe and feel alive. To remember memories of true friendship, loyalty and camaraderie.
I'm glad to face life, each moment because I know, I have them. We might not see often, but we know in our hearts that we love and care for each other like sisters and family. 

Love you all...

We love the West View and believe me,you'll love it too.
