I'm crazy about aerobics

yes I am. it's fun.
beneran. it's fun

I was raised in a sports lover family. my mother was an athlete when she was young. she, and my father played tennis. at home, we used to have a table for us to play pingpong. so sad it's gone since we, the children, one by one left to go to college.
aku dibesarkan di keluarga pecinta olahraga. ibuku dulu atlit waktu masih gadis. dia dan bapak juga main tennis. di rumah, dulu kami punya meja pingpong. tapi udah hilang entah ke mana sejak kami, anak-anak bapak, satu persatu pergi untuk kuliah ke lain kota.

yeah that's me ;)
but I didn't wear my headdress so I cut it there...


I workout 6 days in a week.
monday and thursday, I do it after work before home at gym.
saturday morning, I go to other gyms to find more fun.
tuesday, friday and sunday, I do it at home. some neighbors come to join me, or you can say I am the instructor... :D
aku latihan aerobic enam kali seminggu.
senin dan kamis, di sanggar, sepulang kerja.
sabtu pagi aku cari kesenangan di sanggar lain.
selasa, jumat dan minggu, aku senam di rumah. ibu-ibu tetangga ikut senam bareng, boleh dibilang aku jadi instrukturnya... :D

yup, I took an instructor course. but I am an office worker, so I don't have much time to be an instructor in a gym. so I decided to share what I got in my course to mothers in my neighborhood. for free? half free. they pay but not as much as they should if they go to gym. I would say it is a social work, while having fun at the same time.
iya, aku pernah ambil pelatihan instructur aerobic. masalahnya sekarang aku kerja kantoran, jadi ga bisa kalo mau konsen jadi instruktur di sanggar senam. jadi kuputsukan membagi ilmu yang kudapatkan dari kursus kepada ibu-ibu tetangga. gratis? setengah gratis. mereka bayar tapi tidak sebanyak kalo jadi member saggar. itung-itung kerja sosial yang menyenangkan...

some people do workouts to lose weight. I do it for opposite aim: gaining weight. yes I am under weight. but workout doesn't work alone to do something with weight. it is something has to be combined with diet, whether you want to lose or to gain it.
banyak orang ikut senam untuk menurunkan berat badan. aku justru sebaliknya: ingin menambah. iya, aku kurus banget. tapi latihan aerobic itu ga kerja sendirian untuk mengubah berat badan. harus dikombinasikan dengan mengatur pola makan, baik yang mau nambah atau mengurangi berat badan.

I am one who don't like to eat, and that's why I'm so skinny. but working out has given me a little more appetite in food. I've gained 5kgs (10lbs) in the last year. it is something easy for some people but was a hard working for me. tell me to lose gain, that is easy for me to do.
aku orang yang ga suka makan, makanya kurus. tapi rajin senam agak nambah sedikit nafsu makanku. aku sudah berhasil menambah 5kgs dalam setahun terakhir. buat orang lain mungkin gampang, tapi buatku itu penuh perjuangan. suruh aku menurunkan berat badan, itu baru gampang.

my weight has stopped increasing at 42kgs. I still want to gain 5kgs more but I don't know why it seems I got stacked at that number.
berat badanku berhenti naik di 42kgs. aku masih ingin nambah 5kgs lagi, tapi susah banget.

so I just hold on to what my instructor told me. the main aim of doing aerobics (and other sports) is to be healthy. if you then look well-shaped, that is a bonus...
akhirnya aku berpegang saja pada kata-kata instrukturku. tujuan kita melakukan aerobic (dan olahraga lain) adalah untuk sehat. kalo bentuk badan kita jadi bagus, itu bonus...

You sound really dedicated to your workouts. I need to lose weight, I only have to look at a cream cake to put on a couple of pounds.

Amazing!

I'm with the others I have plenty weight to share! I wish I lived in your country, I could use a work out friend. I used to work out but after the holidays I've not been back.

What a good girl you are. I wish I could stick with something like that. I am no skinny mini like you but strangely enough my daughter is. Not fair!

Nice post and full of good truth. Treadmill and pieces of yoga for me. Makes me feel better - not about weight but about breathing and keeping muscle, I guess.

I'm worn out after reading that. I really need to exercise more.

I'm so jealous. I am laughing at the comment "I will give you some of mine" You could take all of mine and that would be enough for lots of people.
