Senior executive, PR & Communications
1.What is your weekly exercise routine?
Three times a week at the gym (one-hour session which consists of cardio and resistance/strength training). Other days, I do 30-40 minutes of YouTube exercise videos. My favourite videos are from Popsugar Fitness and the Tone It Up channel.
2. What is your fitness aim?
To return to my pre-pregnancy weight, to get toned and increase strength.
3. How do you get over being too lazy to exercise?
Just have to set my mind to it. It’s hard sometimes because I tend to use the no-time excuse or the I-have-a-baby-how-am-I-supposed-to-go-to-the-gym excuse. But if other moms can do it, then I surely can as well. Just have to arrange my schedule smartly. Having a workout buddy is also a good way to overcome being lazy. I work out with my sister who is a great motivator.
4. Weights or cardio?
5. What is your typical breakfast?
Coffee with overnight oats or cereal.
6. What is the first thing you do after you wake up in the morning?
Drink a glass of warm water.
7. How do you recover from a hard workout?
Stretch, take a cold shower and get a good night’s sleep.
8. What is your advice to get people to exercise for health?
It’s never too late to start – even if you’re a self-confessed couch potato. It took me a while as well. I would exercise, eat right, etc for a period of time and then fall back to being lazy. But working in a cancer-related NGO has made me realise that maintaining a healthy weight and being physically active can help to reduce one’s cancer risk.
9. What is your favourite source of protein and why?
I’m not a fan of chicken or red meat so I’ll choose fish any time.
10. The single thing exercise has taught you?
That exercise can be a form of therapy. Never knew that before.
11. What’s your favourite time to exercise?
Right after work so that I have some me-time before picking my daughter from school.
