I am out of the office today. Out of my comfort zone so need to plan my day properly. In fact – tomorrow will be the same but I am able to go back to office after lunch. So the key is to plan.
As for today – as usual won’t be having any breakfast this morning, just some black coffee.
Lunch – going to find something light, perhaps a sandwich. Not going to have anything heavy despite me being here in Pudu. Melting pot of food.
Dinner – going to have my left over tenderloin. A bit a lot of cholesterol laden food but spent so much on it so better finish it. Also will eat with some spinach.
No snacking is allowed!
Did ELEV8 this morning in firestation so that is great. So now gotta control the food. Weight did shoot up due to nasi Padang yesterday but need to recover. Ok to fall down, just need to stand up and go!
Well – yesterday was a failure. To be honest such a waste. I really wanted to start yesterday but I guess the same issue that I have been facing is still haunting me. Tough life to be honest. Here is my take…
I always do something without thinking about the implications… (root of all evil!)
And then I will quickly do it (as the guilt set in…) – which explains why I always eat very fast…
And then the might-as-well attitude sets in (so wallop more) – the binge starts
And then as the day just koyak – I will continue to just go down the rabbit hole
This seems to be a correct representation of what happened yesterday. Here how it went..
I went to do some fixes (and add some mods) to my Defender yesterday. While waiting – obviously in the morning I felt a bit hungry because I had some durian the night before. Usually when I have sugar – I always feel very hungry! That’s common. That is the sugar effect – hence why sugar is a no go! So while waiting, don’t know what to do – and hungry some more, I decided to walk over across the big main road for some roti! I didn’t even have one, but two rotis! Crazy. Coupled with nescafe tarik. And honestly – I ate so fast that the guy next to me who is eating a pack of nasi lemak when I arrived still didn’t finished his food when I finished my food! What I should have done is that I should have think about what I want to do, think and plan my angle of attack. I should have gone and eat boiled eggs with kopi-O instead of walloping on roti!
Once this set in, lunch was all about binges! Had nice set of burger with mozzarella sticks and onion rings. And then continued with dinner which was boat noodle and some cakes from starbucks for dessert. Not forgetting the thai iced tea! Oh dear.
So – I need to buck up. It has to start today again. Remember, its OK to fall off the bandwagon. Just to stand up and move! Hopefully today is better.
I guess – its time to reset – reboot – restart. It has been a long time since I did this, and I guess its time. Have been falling off the bandwagon off and on and its really not helping. The news of friends of friends dying does give me the irk. Heart attacks.. strokes.. damn man. Too young for these stuffs!
The principles will still need to stick. Item 5 will be through this blog. I have made private most of my previous posting which lasted for quite a while which lasted for 85 days. That is almost 3 months, and I did managed to lose quite a bit of weight. And the off and on dieting and exercising managed to get me to a decent level. But I need to continue to push hard if I am going to meet my target. Not going to be easy to be honest. 85th day was July 1st, approximately about 1 year ago! Not bad actually.
Anyway – strategy will remain generally the same. Question that I have is whether I am going on low carb or just portion control. The problem of low carb is that it has too much fat which I am worried will impact my heart health. I rather have a balanced diet with portion control. Carbs can remain lower – but of course more importantly is to eliminate sugar completely!
Hmm… perhaps I need to move to more healthier options like brown rice, quinoa, etc etc. And eat in a much smaller quantity to manage the sugar spikes! Other than that, I should continue to exercise more because exercise helps with the whole weight reduction. Will do a good mix of cardio and weights, in addition to regular HIIT! I also have a Friday pilates session 🙂 Gotta make the core stronger yo!
Ok – enough for today. Day 1 to start tomorrow… so what’s the plan with the food and exercise:
Quick cardio workout (1 hour) – either run or gym
Something light, carbless or clean food (like quinoa or brown rice)
I need to not have carbs in the evening, and have at least 1 salad a day! Fruits is also an important component. After that.. water.. water.. water….
