Actress KC Concepcion will turn 33 on April 7, and her birthday wish is to reach her fitness goal.
"April birthday ko na, and gusto ko mag-beach," she said in an interview with PEP.ph at the launch of Nespresso Boutique.
"So kailangan bikini-ready body! Payat 'yung waist, payat lahat!"
She also opened up about her new healthy lifestyle.
"Six months kasi 'yung minimum na binibigay ko sa katawan ko. I'm halfway there pa lang, mahirap 'yung minsan ang dami mo nang ginagawang workout. 'Tapos napi-feel mo parang, 'Meron bang progress? Parang iba 'yung feeeling ng ine-expect ko na super payat agad.' Pero, I think, 'pag hindi biglaan, mas matagal talaga 'yung process. Pero mas matagal mong mame-maintain."
It's been four months since she started working out, and her routines include cross-fit training, swimming, and Pilates.
Just like us, KC admitted to feeling defeated sometimes, "...may mga times na parang hindi mo nakikita yung progress. Kailangan may ibahin ka rin, so maganda rin minsan mag-rest." She also admits to looking at old photos in her bedroom to encourage herself to stay on track.
Aside from exercise, KC also complements her workout with a proper diet.
"I stay away from yung mga food na nakaka-bloat. I take a lot of vegetables talaga and effort sa akin 'yun this year. Talaga isa sa mga resolutions ko is kumain ng mas maraming gulay. I try to stay away from food na nakakataba, siyempre."
For sweets, KC turns to dark chocolate to indulge herself in a heathier way. "Walang milk or sugar, if ever; meron din akong friend na gumagawa ng chocolate so she makes special chocolates for me for pre- and post-workout kung kinakailangan."
