Instead of a getaway trip that everybody else seems to be planning this Holy Week, Alex Gonzaga will be doing workouts during her break from work.
In an interview with Alex during the launch of her newest brand endorsement Black View Smartphone last March 26, at Midas Hotel on Roxas Boulevard, she lets on that she has never been a beach fan.
“Ako, personally, hindi talaga ako mahilig sa ganun [beach].
“Ang reward ko sa sarili ko from summer to winter, shopping lang at masahe, yun lang.”
Alex recalled one vacation she had with sister Toni Gonzaga, “Nag-beach nga kami ng mga ate ko, yung ate ko, hindi siya mahilig mag-beach.
"Pero mahilig siya mag-picture. Pag nandun siya, todo picture lang siya.”
She adds, “Natutulog lang ako, sabi niya, 'Ang hirap mo namang kasama, sana hindi ka na lang sumama dito.’”
Alex has no plan for this Holy Week, except to stay at home and do some exercises to strengthen her stamina.
“Yung stamina ko aayusin ko, so jogging, sa bahay lang ako,” she says.
For a lady who has always been slim, losing weight has never been a problem to her. But she wants to keep herself fit and eat right.
For binge eaters, here’s a tip from Alex, “Wala, basta dapat kumakain ka lang ng tama.
“Dapat daw, pagkatapos mo kumain, yung feeling mo e puwede ka pang kumain ulit.
“Hindi yung sobrang busog na busog na parang iduduwal mo na yung mga kinain mo.”
She adds, “Tip ko talaga na kung anong ibinigay sa 'yo ni Lord na katawan, flaunt it!
“Kung mapayat ka gusto mo tumaba, yung mataba gustong pumayat, 'wag!
“Kung anong ibinigay sa ‘yo ni Lord, appreciate mo na lang.
“Dati siyempre gusto ko rin naman...nung super kasikatan nila [Kim] Kardashian at ni Beyonce, ‘Gusto ko ganito katawan ko,’ hindi talaga, e.”
