I used to like running..

Fun Posts, Running

I do want to get back into it. There’s so much of peace when I run. Hit the music and just go. Yes I am maybe a bit too heavy but the last couple of months I have managed to lost more than 15kg and I do feel a lot lighter and a lot mobile. The more I run, the faster I will lose weight (provided that I keep to my diet).

This morning when I woke up I was deciding whether to go to the gym or to walk. I decided to go walk instead because i wanted to sweat out. The weekend has been quite bad for my diet and doing weights not going to help much in removing the toxins unless I whack big time. So walking was the best. As I got to the car, then the tummy started giving me tummy issues. So I had no choice and did a stop at the other park (not arboretum) as it has a working toilet. Given the time spent in the toilet, I had no choice but to run or walk at the park. So I run lor.

I ran very slow because of my weight and fitness level. Whilst maintaining about 135BPM, I also ensure that not much impact to my knee. I remember a video that i saw about running slowly with smaller steps is much better than whacking. Well – to my benefit it works. I ran most of the track but of course extremely slow. Probably about 20% faster than my walking speed. I can obviously run faster but after 200-300 meters, I probably run out of steam and will be complaining of aching bones.

I think tomorrow I will continue running, maybe try at least three sessions this week. It’s relaxing especially if it’s outdoor. Indoor is a tad boring. And if I don’t have any shows to watch, I would probably fall asleep.

I need to think about my strategy after I get my new car. It is plug in hybrid therefore I need to charge it. The gym in the curve have a charger so maybe I need to run at the gym while waiting for the arrangement for power socket in my parking bag my apartment get sorted out. Let’s see.

All in all, a great start to the week!

7 Things You Do When You Fell off the Bandwagon

Fun Posts

I read somewhere on the Internet on some of the things that I can do when I fall of the bandwagon. These are the seven things that seems to resonate well with what I can do. It all makes sense, a lot of sense. Read through the seven things below:

First thing: understand that it’s okay if you’re not hundred percent on plan, hundred percent of the time.

Second thing: let go of the guilt. There is nothing to feel guilty about.

Third thing: keep going, do not let it stop you.

Fourth thing: look back and ask yourself what may have caused you to fall off track.

Fifth thing: remind yourself what you are doing what you are doing. And if you do not know what is the why, figure it out.

Sixth thing: take each day as a new beginning and show yourself of love and compassion.

Seventh thing: treat your adult self like you are taking care of your child self.

Most of the seven things up there are common sense. I think I just need to do it. You don’t need to think too hard, and just take action. The problem with me as per the previous post is that I do a lot of talking and writing, but not so much of action.

I made to really push myself to take action versus just saying it. It is not just about the 365 days project, but also in my working life. It is tough, but it is something that I need to do otherwise it may be very detrimental to my life.

I’m always stressed about me not doing what I need to do. Procrastination seems to be one of my biggest hurdle. I like to procrastinate a lot of things. Always leave things to the last minute. I know I am quite organised, but having to do list does not mean jack shit. this is all about the actions versus having a list.

So, I need to take actions. I need to think very serious actions. I will look back again on my list, and make sure that I take all the actions for all the items that are listed down for today.

Actions Speak Louder Than Words

I Will Be the Best Every Day All Day Starting from Today.

Day 19 of 364 Cheat and Rest


Its day 19 and its a rest day

Everybody is entitled to have a rest day. Pushing the body for a long period of time is going to have a detrimental effect. Its not good as the body will need to time to recover.  In fact in some article that I read – for people who are above 40, it is recommended that you workout two days and then take one day break. I think that is pretty good, but my problem is that for non-workout day, I tend to feel extremely sluggish!

Yesterday was cheat meal day and also a rest day. Something that I should not have done because I should have at least balance out the day with a long cardio. Well – I did plan to do so but the problem was the weather was so shit that I could not get myself out to Arboretum to do a long hilly walk! It would have been good honestly. But I guess let bygone be bygone as I can’t turn the clock around. I can only see what I can do differently when such things happen.

Cheat meal was pretty awesome. Helped myself to some great food. Onion Rava Thosai, Idly, Paneer tikka and dessert ice cream sandwich. I could feel the sugar kind going around my brains.


At night I kind of whacked. Not from the low carb food but more from the amount of food I consumed. I seriously should have controlled the volume of food that I ate. I did not ended up to be extremely full but it is easily double of  my typical volume of food. Sigh. But we can only learn. I need to remember portion control. Portion control is also extremely important. Just to recap on portion control.

Size it Right

I must really have this ingrained in my mind. In most times, I don’t think before I eat. Need to continue to push push push. The weekly result may be quite shit as it has not been a great weekend 🙁 But we shall see tomorrow.

In fact – after thinking about it, I may need to rethink my target weight loss per week. Something healthy and sustainable would be about 1 kg a week. That would be great. Anything more is actually quite dangerous.. Let me rethink about it. To end the journal today, let’s watch a very interest TEDX talk on what happen to fat when we lose it… Mathematics of Weight Loss
