About me


My name is Liza Gapasin I am 19 years old and going to college to be a registered nurse. I have many interests, and one big interest of mine as of right now is working out! Here's a little background of my fitness life up until now. At the age of 5 my dad enrolled my brother and I to do Taekwondo. I stopped at age 13 because of a tragic car accident and ended up fracturing my neck (c2 spine). I had to a wear a halo to support my neck and to heal my fractured spine for about 3 and a half months. So I paused Taekwondo for a bit and got back into it my freshman year of high school. Taekwondo was the only sport that was actually keeping me active and in shape. I was also loved by all my P.E. teachers because unlike the other students, I ran my mile, and I ran it pretty darn well. With this being said, I was active my whole life and even joined badminton sophomore year of high school. Then my interest lessened for that sport, and I was interested in kickboxing. At the time my brother was having private kickboxing sessions so I decided to join. I did that for about 4 months. Then I just stopped every sport I did altogether because I wanted to chill my senior year of high school. Although I was not enrolled in any sport, I was still exercising here and there at home to keep my body fit.

When college came, That's when I began gaining weight. Freshman year wasn't too bad. I only gained about 5lbs. On top of that I went to the gym every 2 weeks to do some cardio and other workouts. Then summer came and I decided I wanted a personal trainer. So I got one, but when my sophomore year began, it was hard for me to commute back home to my personal trainer so I ended it. It was too expensive anyways. So I looked into getting p90x. I did that for about 3 months off and on.. I wasn't very consistent with it. I also moved into an apartment my sophomore year which allowed me to snack frequently on unhealthy things that we had. My eating habits were terrible! I would eat anything and everything! I remember we would make deep friend oreos, My roommate and I would make 2 batches of cookies every single day and I think that's when everything went downhill for me. I went from 120-135 soo darn quick it was ridiculous! I was also developing stretch marks all over the back of my thighs and they were bright red! It scared me! So in April 2010 I decided to take action. I knew summer was right around the corner and I didn't want to start off my summer being depressed! So what I did was that I did a little bit of p90x cardio to start it off. On top of that I was trying my best to change my eating habits. Then I heard about Insanity, and ordered that program right away. Once it came in, I was on that program. I was so dedicated to that program and to my health, that I did not make any excuses not to exercise. I didn't let any of my exams get in the way of my exercise. I organized everything just right, even if I had to wake up early just to work out before class, I would do that. I did anything in my power to be consistent with this program.

After getting done with the 3rd or 2nd week of insanity, I ran across a beachbody coach's youtube channel and she was so inspirational. Before this, I was posting videos of myself working out and I really got some great comments saying that I should really consider being a beachbody coach. So what I did was that I contacted the coach I found on youtube, and her name is Steph Perez, and I told her I was interested. And that's how I became a beachbody coach. I had this determination and I wanted to inspire everyone around me to get up and get fit! Being a beachbody coach is really worth is for me. I can get 25% off any beachbody product and on top of that I can transform my body as well as my bank account.

A little more about me:
I'm the youngest in my family and the only girl. I have two older brothers, one who is a year older than me and one who is 5 years older than me. My oldest brother passed away from leukemia, so I didn't really get to meet him but I wish to in the future. I am attending a private university and hour away from home and will soon be transferring to a nursing school after I finish my pre-reqs at the sister school. Like I said I have many interests. I am into a lot of things and whenever I discover new things I really get into it. I really have a true passion for makeup. I am not that great, but I love doing makeovers on people. I use to spend my time collecting make-up and experimenting with different colors and techniques. However once I started college, I didn't have the time to be messing around with make up. So for now I just apply make up on my friends and family whenever they have a special event coming up, for free of course. That's another thing about me. I am too nice. It's so hard for me to say no even if I want to. I am very generous and caring as well. However, I can really become irritated and speak my mind and that may turn ugly. But on a daily basis, people perceive me as a shy girl. I may appear to be shy at first, be trust me once I open up and I am comfortable with you I can be a bit random and strange! I am also so very spontaneous. I do the most random things out of no where! For example, my friend and I went to Lowes to go look for something and we came across paint colors and I was really liking this one color and I've always wanted to repaint my room! I went and bought paint and primer and paint brushes right then and there and on that day we started painting my room! It took about 3 days to complete because I also went to ikea and bought new furniture. Sometimes I don't plan and that's what happens. lol! I am also a total introvert. I really don't mind being by myself and I really love staying home. I find ways to prevent boredom such as finding tutorials on how to take good pictures, or messing around with a video editing program. I keep myself busy and interested in so many ways. I also having loving parents! I love them so very much, they are wonderful! And not to mention my wonderful boyfriend. I've been with him for over 5 years now and we're still going strong. I love him to death. He's my everything. :)

************** MAY 1, 2013 UPDATE!*************** 

I told myself i'd do a progress shot the beginning of May.
I've been heading to the gym since the second week of April with my niece,
we've been going 6 times a week. 
We started off by doing cardio of our choice (treadmill, stairmaster, eliptical, cycling), 
then we'd do weights. 
Last week we started doing Cardio last, and weights first.

I weigh myself each week, and I actually gained a few pounds.
I felt discourage, but I didn't want to take progress pictures just yet.
I was waiting until May. 
I went from 125lbs to 129lbs.
I hope that's all muscle weight!!
I finally took my progress pictures today,
and oh boy did it blew me away.
I didn't even know I was getting such results,
but after comparing it to my past pictures,
it made me realize that hard work really does pay off.
Also, patience! 

I'm not quite where I want to be,
I want to atleast be 115lbs or maybe 112lbs.
I still have a long way to go and my diet has been all that great either.
Once I get eating clean situated, i'll probably see more better results.
I'm struggling mostly on my legs, specifically my thighs.
They're getting toned, but they aren't shrinking.
I know it'll take patience, because my thighs are like fat magnets.
All my fat goes to my thighs!!
I've seen a reduction in cellulite as well!

I saw definition first in my arms. 
Hopefully they don't get too big. I'm only curling

Anyways, enough talking here are some progress pictures.

****7/19/2012 UPDATE*******************************************

I gained all my weight and i'm back to where I started. It's a little upsetting because I was so close to my goal weight and I could have easily gotten there. Now I have to start from scratch and work harder. All my hard work just went to waste. But hey, it's life. You get yourself back up again and keep moving forward. I'm not perfect, nobody is. I started gaining weight on my winter break DEC 2011. When I when back to school again my weight would fluctuate from 127-132. I did exercise here and there but it wasn't on a daily basis. I would watch what I eat at times, and I stopped counting the calories I took in. When I started my summer vacation, I told myself I would shed all this weight off.. but apparently, that didn't happen. I ended up gaining weight because I was surrounded by food! I came back home for summer vacation, and my mom and grandma would cook, there would be a lot of parties. I'd go out to eat because I would miss out on food I haven't had when I was in school. It was getting crazy.. But i couldn't control myself because everything tasted so good. It wasn't until I wasn't able to fit into my summer shorts that made me realize I needed to do something. I hate spending money on new clothes just so I can fit them. So AS OF TODAY JULY 19th 2012 I STARTED THE EXERCISE WORKOUT CALLED TAPOUT XT! with my boyfriend. I also started on HERBALIFE to help facilitate my weight loss that way by the time I graduate on DECEMBER 2012 end of this year, I'll look good in my graduation dress!! It's all about control.. and how motivated you are and how much you really want this.

2008: I graduated from High school and began my freshman year of college. I didn't quite gain the freshman 15 everyone was talking about but I did gain about 5lbs.
2009: I started seeing a dramatic change in my weight from august 2009- dec 2009. My roommate and I moved out of the dorms and into an apartment. This gave us the opportunity to cook for ourselves. I remember we kept making big batches of chocolate chip cookies. I made like a dozen each day and who knows how much I consumed. We also didn't eat very healthy. We ate a lot of white rice, spam corn beef. And a lot of freezer foods. I think that's how I mainly started gaining weight.

2010:  This year I reached my heaviest, weighing 135lbs. I can tell I gained weight because my feet would hurt just by standing in one place for a short period of time. I'm only 5"0 so weight that much puts a lot of strain on my feet. I also started getting numerous stretch marks on my thighs. They were bright red and itchy. This made me realize that I needed to do something before the summer began. So I started Insanity near the end of APRIL. I got wonderful results but still wasn't at my goal weight but it was good enough. Better than what I looked like at the beginning of the year. I weighed 122.

2011 I pretty much maintained my weight throughout the year. I was my lightest during the summertime and often gained more weight during the winter time. I was starting to gain more weight during my winter break. I came back home with a lot of good food to eat, a lot of the food that I missed when I was staying back at my apartment.

Fitness weightloss 2012 copy
2012: My weight would fluctuate when I started my spring semester of nursing school. I would run with my friends here and there and do a little bit of insanity.. but It wasn't on a daily basis. Probably exercised 2-3 times a week. Then I started gaining weight when I came home for the summer.. NOW GOING TO START TAP OUT XT! something new.
