With a blink of an eye, #IWillBeOkay is one year old now and has entered into its 4th campaign to date. I have an aim of running a campaign every quarter but right after my #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike ended, I got a call from Clinelle asking for a collaboration. Immediately I went into planning mood. I already knew what I want as I have spoken about it for so long, even before the trail hike event.
Many of you know that I run but I think not many of you know that I am also into bodyweight HIIT training as well. In fact, I sort of slowed down my running for HIIT training. And the kind of bodyweight training I am into is not the normal version but rather a more intense workout named Metafit. I spoke about having regular Metafit session for my #IWillBeOkay ‘Fight Against Depression’ Awareness Campaign for so long. Even way before I started planning for #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike event.
Wow. I cannot believe it has been a month since #IWillBeOkay Trail Hike event was held. Everything happened so fast! The idea to have this event came right after I ended my 2nd campaign, which was the #IWillBeOkay Beauty Bag. Then the sourcing for sponsorship starts after I made a call to Ariff to ask him if he would lead the runners for my event. He said yes and I started making plans.
I think I have been under a rock as I have never heard of carb blocker before this until the launch of Vitraplus Cabloc a month ago. Appetite suppression yes, fat burner yes but not carb blocker. I talked to a few friends of mine about this new product, that I was excited to try it out and guess what? They all knew there are such a supplement and I did not! And there I was on clean eating and what not lol.
Thousands of participants showed up in groups and as families for Guardian Walkathon 2016. It is an annual affair for Guardian Malaysia with this year being their 7th year in a row. Many came in special national costumes to mark the country’s Malaysia Day. Everyone showed up with two purpose – to walk for a healthier lifestyle and also for charity, knowing their effort will benefitted hundreds of orphans and needy children.
Up until today I still laugh at a statement from a random friend one year ago when I started living healthier by eating clean and adopted running into my everyday lifestyle. In the mind of this friend, I take care of myself because of a guy. NO. I take care of myself for myself, not for anyone.
