Why are there limited sports wear for plus size women?

One of the reasons I truly missed traveling is the shopping spree. And no, I’m not talking about fancy factory outlets or branded goods in the malls. It’s more of Walmart, Forever21 and Target where plus size clothes are affordable yet stylish for me. I find it a struggle to buy sports wear for my size that is fitting yet comfortable for me to workout in Singapore. 

I searched through various Adidas, Puma, Nike, Royal Sporting house and JD stores only to find that the sizes run small and I probably could fit the male XL size which honestly is very baggy and gets in the way due to the length of the shirt. Why is it so hard to find workout wear over a size 16?

Isn’t it ironic when plus sizes individuals are being told to lose weight by working out but yet society doesn’t make it easy for us? It is just infuriating to pay more for an outfit that suits us due to a lack of demand. I probably won’t mind getting the male sizes for workout wear but how about internally? Sports Bra with good support that won’t break my back whenever I do push ups, where can I find it?

I cannot be buying it off from US Websites and delivering it to Singapore via Vpost, can’t I? I have attempted purchasing it from Shein/Shoppee, mostly aesthetically intriguing and sizes fit but it doesn’t support at all when working out. But of course, when desperate times call, I simply have to suck it up and eventually do what I should be doing to stay rooted to my goals after weighing the pros and cons for sure. 

To add on, working out in the gym as a Hijabi means I am sweating internally under the scarf. Though Nike’s Pro Hijab is available, the sizes run a bit smaller. The internal loop where we don the hijab and frame our face in is mainly for athletes with smaller faces and me sticking into it, gives me a feel of pau being squeezed by a Cotton Steaming Cloth.  

Though Nike has revolutionized on making hijab breathable and keep still, more can be done to make it more stylish and accommodative to the general public instead of just the athletes.  Personally I prefer working out at home because wearing a hijab is inconvenient and is bad for my hair when it is soaked with sweat and smelly. Furthermore, when the scarf is wet, it gets really heavy and stiff which completely obstructs my workout routine and generally feels heavier on my shoulder. I tend to not make big movements because I kept having to keep the hijab in place. 

Nike’s initial sport hijab prototype focused on being- lighter, softer and more breathable garment. Upon receiving an enthusiastic response, they modified the fit to account for a range of head sizes and face shapes by having two sizes – XS/S and M/L. I had been trying to find Nike’s Pro Hijab in M/L in Singapore but mostly it ran out and I had to find it online. I had added it to cart and will be updating on how convenient and fuss-free it will be when it arrives on my doorstep. 

Apparently, the material is light and airy which makes it less humid internally. The idea of it being light and airy and yet, stay still while working out is puzzling which makes this an interesting purchase. 

The Nike Pro Performance Hijab Goes Global  0

The soft, lightweight polyester is opaque but has tiny holes for venting. The mesh is also stretchy, so when combined with an elastic binding it allows for a personalized fit that adapts to both the wearer’s head and her sport.

The back of the hijab is elongated to ensure it doesn’t come untucked. Fluff threads were used at the neck and face to minimize rubbing and irritation that can occur when an athlete sweats.

That’s a long way from having trouble finding a suitable hijab for a plus size Muslimah and something appealing for me to wear to the gym. To add on, the Nike Pro Hijab is available in neutral colors and sadly the company seems not driven to expand to include more designs for the public. 

There are tons of places online for us to purchase plus size workouts but mostly, how reliable are they in providing good fit that are stylish and provide the necessary support. Meanwhile, I am just gonna be looking at the regular-sized outfits at the stores with envy.

Common Phrases You Should Learn Before Travelling

Language barriers can be very difficult when traveling to countries that communicate differently. At times, it very well may be frustrating to try and find your way around or complete basic tasks. Traveling to Korea, I applied my self-taught Korean and mandarin (as there are many Chinese working at MyeonDong) and spoke to the locals to order food. It was especially useful in the old restaurant where the Ahjumma can only speak Korean and my basic phrases empowered me to order Tuna Kimbap effortlessly. As I learned the language by watching Korean shows, sadly I had picked up informal Korean and got lashed out once by an elderly lady for being discourteous.

With that in mind, I took the opportunity to figure out how to verbalize correctly the next trip to Korea. To add on, it is important to speak simple greetings as you would not want to portray yourself as rude. It’s always good to know how to greet others. Don’t forget about other greetings as well. For example, good morning/afternoon/night/evening.

Here are 20 Common Travel Phrases to Learn while on the plane

  1. Do you speak English? (substitute with your native language)
  2. Where is ….? Where is the bathroom? 
  3. How much does this cost?
  4. Speak slowly, please. I do not understand.
  5. Do you take credit cards? Is there a bank/ATM nearby?

Finding your way around is intense, in a country that doesn’t communicate in English. Learn directional words and expressions to help you explore. 

  1. Left/right/up/down/straight/back/corner
  2. How far is…?
  3. Airport/Bus/train/metro stop/station
  4. How long does it take to get to….?
  5. How far away is…..?
  6. What time is it?

Popular protein shake for women

Growing up, I had this misguided judgment that protein shake was intended for a muscular man hitting the gym, it isn’t meant for regular sized men, what more a lady. As I turned 21 and joined my peers in Fitclub Choa Chu Kang, I began to started to appreciate the flavor of the Herbalife Vanilla Protein shake. It was my first initial awakening and I love having a good emotionally supportive system when doing physical activity. The members shared tips and knowledge about getting fitter and making my weight loss less lonely. It was then I learned the truth that women need protein just as much as men do and we ought to normalize drinking protein shake just like bubble tea, juices or tea.

In the body, protein plays a critical role in many functions, from cells all the way up to muscles. It is present in every single cell in the body, helping to repair cells and make new ones. As a macronutrient, protein is needed for the structure and regulation of all tissues and organs, ensuring that they function optimally. Protein additionally generates energy for healthy muscle contractions. Plus, protein is vital when trying to gain muscle mass.

Protein will make you bulky.

This is a popular misconception that by eating protein, their curvy body will eventually bulk up. The ignorant me associated protein with building muscle and was afraid of appearing bigger. While reading up on weight training, protein is significant to build lean muscle, which makes the body stronger and healthier. To add on, protein aids women in maintaining radiant skin, strong bones, and helps the body recover faster from injury. With that, protein shakes make it easy to grab protein on-the-go.

If you are trying to control your weight, improve body composition, or encourage weight loss, eating enough protein is essential. So you should be consuming protein at every meal. To effectively control weight with protein, consumption of protein should be spread out throughout the day.

You can make comparisons for which one works best for you. After all, who wants to waste money trying to find the perfect powder? Especially when you can find the perfect blend tailored especially for you.

Buying souvenirs – Yes or No

My friends and family are consistently on the back of my head when getting away from home and enjoying everything the world has to offer. New sights, new people, and new encounters feel vivid and exciting at every turn and I will think of them who are not able to be with me physically. Rather than catching those minutes on photos or recordings, I like to get keepsakes which encourages me to share a story or experience with my loved ones.

Despite me wanting to start a travel blog, tragically I am someone who believes that travelling is best without a camera. Rationally, you will see the country for the way it was intended to as opposed to calculating your moves to impress the followers on your social media platform. With souvenirs, those trinkets and fun gift shop toys can be great callbacks to trips if purchased correctly.

In the case you buy it generically and inadequately, some individuals may realize that they wasted their money on garbage. I would love to think that souvenirs are like time capsules that open right into memories of your vacation. You might pick up a shell and think of your trip to Hawaii, or look at your cute apple magnet and your mind drifted to the road trip to Apple Town in Mexico city. They hold something sentimental and unique that helps you unwrap a piece of your past.
They’re likewise incredible because these tokens show the people around you that you did think of them while you were off on vacation.

There are a lot of factors that might make a souvenir not worth it.

More often than not, souvenirs are things that only gather dust on your desk. However awkward as it very well might be to admit, many souvenirs that people buy are just junk that nobody will use or want to look at for more than a couple of days. This could refer to shot glasses, shell décor, or keychains that nobody needs.

Not every vacation needs a physical reminder of where you went and for how long. Instead, you can frame some of the photos from your trip and make them into wall decoration. What matters the most about any trip is that you had a great time and came home healthy and happy.

If part of what makes you happy is bringing home souvenirs, then do it! Even though it might seem like mess, or it may make your luggage heavier, if it’s what makes the trip fulfilling, then buy it. I am currently enjoying my magnets collected during my vacation and am constantly reminded of the trip when making a trip to the refrigerator.

Likewise, if you don’t find the purpose in getting a souvenir, and that make sense as well. As long as you made incredible and fun memories during your vacation, it’s great.

What should I do when checking into a hotel? (Solo Female Traveler Edition)

Traveling alone can be a profoundly rewarding experience. You don’t have to compromise your desires and you move at your own pace, obey your own whims and set your own rules.

The flipside of solo travel, obviously is safety. As a female solo traveler myself, I tend to follow a set of simple rules when adventuring alone.

Be cautious and vigilant, especially when exploring a new or an unfamiliar city. Do your research about the common crimes or cons in the area.  Bearing in mind that knowledge is power, read the situation via reviews before diving in, and be sure to look up safety tips based on your destination.

A good place to start is hotel safety as wherever your destination might be, you’ll still need a place to sleep. 

Here are 5 tips for females when checking into a hotel

1. Call ahead and don’t be gender-specific 

Before you book, call the hotel and inquire about the establishment’s safety measures. Ask about security guards and surveillance cameras and whether the front desk is manned 24/7. Provide only your first initial and last name when reserving a room.

2. Request for the front desk employee to write down your room number instead of  verbalizing it aloud

You don’t need anybody to overhear where you’re staying. In the event that they do say it, demand another room and have them to write it out this time. 

3. Inspect the room and keep the door locked

Before you unpack, inspect the room to ensure all windows and doors have functioning locks. Make a habit of locking your door once you enter the room. Always use the deadbolt and security chain regardless of how over the top it might seem.

4. Use the hotel’s main entrance and avoid being alone

This is particularly crucial when entering or exiting the hotel after dark. If necessary, call for an employee to accompany you to and from your car. You want to minimize time in insecure environments. For instance, in case you’re waiting for a taxi, stay in your lobby until it arrives. Albeit it may cost few dollars, utilize the valet parking to avoid the walk from the parking lot to the hotel.

5. To deter theft, provide the illusion that someone is with you constantly

When checking in, get two cards instead of one and inform that another female companion is on her way as well. You don’t want to alert the desk receptionist that you’re occupying the room alone. Meanwhile if there is a male individual that is looking for you, they will find it amiss and inform you prior. To add on,  do keep the “Do Not Disturb” card on your door and turn on the television when you go out. You don’t want to alert anyone that you’re occupying the room alone.

How Long Should My Break Be After Eating Before Working Out?

While it’s important to eat a nutritious meal before working out, often the timing itself plays a huge role in your workout performance and recovery. This was something that I pondered as there are occasions when I think that it’s a lot harder to lift my dumbbell on days I skipped a meal while it was easier the day before. Thus, I consulted Google for this and it has been said that there is an ideal timing to eat before exercising. 

I’m almost certain at this point, the majority of individuals in the middle of the health journey have heard of pre-workout supplements and post-work out supplements. So why are there demands for these supplements? 

Essentially, nutrition plays a significant role in aiding exercise performance and recovery and on the off chance that you can’t get it through food, individuals resort to quick supplements/drinks before they go to the gym. To ensure that your workout is more effective and productive, it is recommended to provide not just nutritious food but also providing your body the right combination of nutrients so that it generates the energy to perform and recuperate better.

 The top 3 macronutrients that are accountable in your performance and recovery are protein, carbohydrates and fats. 

 Protein: stimulates muscle protein synthesis, which helps muscle development  and recovery

Carbohydrates: provides your body with glucose, your muscle’s main source of energy during shorter workouts and high intensity exercise.

Fat: plays a role in providing fuel for longer, low to moderate intensity exercise

With that being said, another factor to ease the workout will be to time your pre-workout meal.

Your pre-workout meal ought to contain a balance of protein, carbs, and fat. The additional time you have before your workout should allow your body time to digest the nutrients and make them accessible for use during your workout.

It has been recommended that optimally, you should be eating 2–3 hours prior to a workout. A good examples of the meal that incorporates protein, carbs, and fat would be :- 

Lean meat with veggies and brown rice

A whole-grain sandwich with eggs, avocado, and a side of fruit

Oatmeal with peanut butter, blueberries, and a protein shake

If you’re pressed for time, you can still slot in a meal as few as 45–60 minutes before your workout. However, the meal should be smaller and unprocessed to aid digestion and absorption. Instead of eating a balance of protein, carbs, and fat, your meal should consist of mostly carbs and some protein. These nutrients are digested faster and provide you the fuel you need in a shorter time period.

Good examples of meals to eat 45–60 minutes before a workout include:

A banana or apple with peanut butter

A blueberry and banana protein smoothie

A hard-boiled egg and toast

Food should be taken in moderation and curb yourself from eating too much food before a workout, as it may cause stomach discomfort, bloating, feelings of lethargy, or nausea during your workout.

X맨 E089

Other than my personal fitness journey and my travel escapades, I have re-ignited my interest in Korean variety show and would like to share some of the highlights here.

Just to emphasize, nope it is not something I stumbled recently or following the trends of KPOP.

I had discovered XMAN in primary school and greatly enjoyed the variety shows which has Kang Ho Dong and Yoo Jaesuk in the same show. This is a series of throwback post on why XMAN is still the funniest variety show, which undoubtedly explains why the show becomes the starting point of many entertainers like HAHA, KIM JONG KOOK, KIM JONG MIN and features original idol stars like Shinhwa, GOD, Hyori, TVXQ/DBSK and SS501.

Needless to say, I will begin with my favourite episode of all – E089.

This was a Summer Special in Pattaya and featured the best star list in my honest opinion – Hwangbo, Haha, Lee Minki, Ji Sangryul, Andy & Hyesung (Shinhwa), Park Jongkyu, Yoon Eunhye, Kim Jong Kook.

This was Kim Jong Kook’s return to XMAN after months as he was preoccupied making his album. So during the Yoon Eunhye (YEH) introduction, they teased her asking how she feel about him coming back and honestly, she was glad and cheerful. (Some say it is scripted but as a viewer, I can see that she genuinely is happy to see him) Look at how shy he became when she say, “Today’s recording will be enjoyable”. After turning away, he genuinely smiled and laugh. (God knows how formal he can be when interacting with other female celebrity).

In the Introduction, they also featured Lee Jin and Andy who was quite popular for their pairing on Banjun Dramas. Their loveline was threatened by Jihoon who had thick lips similar to Andy and Hyesung who broke his remote when seeing Andy and Lee Jin kissing scenes. To add on, Lee Min Ki came into the picture and wanted to confront Kim Jong Kook cause he was interested in YEH.

On the first game, Lee Minki was happy to match with Eunhye and MC YJS asked them to sing to each other to loosen the nerves. YEH say a song with the lines of ‘don’t like me, I have eyes for other man’ which was referred to KJK meanwhile LMK sang something in the lines “I unknowingly also fall for you” but he cracks up (cause he is an actor not a singer). Surprisingly YEH lost to LMK which earned disapproval look on KJK but as she was intending to get out of pool, she naturally headed to KJK (so how scripted can it be?), which got pointed out by Kang Ho Dong, only for JongGyu and KJK quarrelling to assist her.

Thus naturally, next competitor for LMK is KJK and as unwilling as they might be, they are still holding hands and sing to each other before playing the game. Before singing, LMK mentioned to him, “All this time, was he happy?” and KJK responded, “In life, there are things that you cannot get”. LMK then sang in the lines of “GO AWAY GO AWAY” meanwhile KJK said “This is probably what YEH wanted to say just now” and sang “There is another man”.

Needless to say, LMK lost the game.

The next interesting bit is when team compete, with the LJ,HYESUNG, LEE JIHOON versus YEH, KJK AND Park Jongkyu. With YEH (who is famous for her strength) and KJK, they easily wins. Next up was the power showdown between KHD and KJK. God knows no one can defeat each other (1on1) on K-Variety now, physically. In this episode, KJK flipped KHD and that was no easy feat. He was the MVP and was shy to expose his body and hides under water.

The next segment was better because it features the infamous of-course game!

All in all, this was my ultimate favourite episode because KJK-YEH-LMK love triangle, Lee Jin-Andy-Hyesung love triangle, strength showdown between Jong Kook and Hodong and Haha’s initial parody of Turbo Hits.

I am gonna turn in and upload the videos and input the links to episode tomorrow. Honestly I am excited to share with Papitus on why YEH-KJK loveline is undefeatable.

5 Must Need Apps For Your Fitness Journey

Quit scrolling #fitnesstoks on TikTok, get spurred by downloading the apps below to get started. Don’t let your work arrangement stop you from staying in shape. 

GYM POD FITNESS WORKOUT APP

With the recent Covid-19 pandemic, gym and fitness trainers have to get creative in making it easy for users to book a slot to visit the gym. With new technology, you would think that it will be hard to figure out the app especially on the whole process of booking and exercising. Gympod app is unquestionably easy to understand and booking a slot is seamless! However do note that the cost to book a slot has skyrocketed. The initial reason why people choose Gym Pod was due to its competitive price and privacy. Though I am reluctant to book a slot with them, the privacy factors remain attractive to me as a Plus Size Hijab lady. Additionally there is another feature in the app that is worth keeping in your phone. It provides a wide range of videos from the fitness trainers that guides us on how to do our routine correctly and for that I’m keeping it on my phone hoping that the prices for the gym pod is back to norm.

⅖  

MYFITNESSPAL

This is the best app hands down.  I’ve lost weight effectively thanks to this app as it tracks down the minimum and maximum calories that I should be eating per day and also what macro and nutrients that I need daily and note nutrients I need to maintain, gain or lose. I’ll recommend anybody I know who is serious about the fitness and health to download. I’ve lost 24 kg through this app in one year (in 2015) and I believe that this is the best guide to anyone who wants to lose weight.

Aaptiv Audio Workout App

The app is ideal for individuals who appreciate working out alone but need some motivation and company without having someone tagging along. The guidance over the head phone it’s not monotonous at all. It is as though the trainer is  speaking to you, motivating you  and giving reminders and pointers. The background music is definitely a plus point so you don’t have to choose what to listen to. This definitely makes working out less lonely.

8fit Workout App

The app is perfect for individuals who don’t have the opportunity to go to the gym and yet can’t be self-motivated. It is a best combo for a healthy food catalog and weekly class from several fitness experts. One of my favorite features of this app is it keeps you motivated to work out with weekly HIIT workouts geared toward your experience level. It’s a one-two punch for keeping your fitness on track.

Workout Women

There is nothing unsatisfactory about the app and it is targeted fundamentally for ladies!  I love it because it provides workouts with different levels of difficulty. It allows you to choose which part of the body you would like to target and has various workout routines to choose from with free guides and motivating music. If you go for the subscriptions, you are able to unlock more programs weekly. Nevertheless, even the free workout videos will undoubtedly make you sweat and tone your body the way it was intended to. 

Best 3 Sunblock Lotion When Visiting the Beach

You have likely heard it consistently, especially with Singapore’s relentless weather and humidity not to skip sunscreen in the event that you want to prevent dark spots, sun damage and signs of aging. While it’s enticing to skip sunblock if you have oily, acne-prone skin, you could unintentionally cause long term skin issues including skin cancer and photosensitivity.

Skin cancer: UVB rays can cause sunburns and malignant melanoma, according to a study from the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Photosensitivity: Heightened skin sensitivity or an unusual reaction when your skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight or a tanning bed according to the report by Skin Cancer Foundation.

If you haven’t actively been slathering on SPF all year round, it’s an ideal opportunity to bring an end to old habits with these stellar sunscreen products for all your sun protection needs.

Banana Boat is by far my favourite brand for any sunblock or sunscreen at how effective and long lasting it will be especially when swimming. The fact that it is weightless and non-greasy, the protection lasts up to 80 minutes and is water resistant. To add on, it absorbs quickly and provides Uva/UVB Broad Spectrum protection – Sun Protection: 50.0.
