I'm so happy because I'm beginning to see progress, actually SEE progress. When I stand up, I can already see some definition in my abs. But when I sit down, I still get a belly roll but it's smaller than before.
I'm sure that my fat percentage is going down because I look leaner. Many people have told me that I've lost weight. But my measurements are about the same but I'm heavier somehow. Which probably means my muscles are increasing. And if I look leaner, all that Pilates is paying off!

I was feeling very blue last night and hardly slept a wink because I was so miserable but this morning, a friend of mine who lives miles away dropped in a rang my doorbell. My parents pounded at my door and said she was here.
At first, I thought she had called on the phone but she was like physically here! At my gate. As I said, I had a bad night and when she came I was just finally settling down to sleep. Well, I woke up, brushed my teeth and got ready to go out with her. She offered to buy me lunch, I said ok.
I had prawn noodles, she had springy noodles with ham and egg, and we split a large order of ice-cream sandwiches! Yuuuuuuummmmm! I just love that creamy vanilla ice-cream, sandwiched in crispy bread!
And then suddenly, I wasn't so blue anymore! I guess God does know and care what I'm going through! He sent my friend over! It was a total surprise!

It was hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk today. I was on Sparks earlier with the air-conditioning on in the computer room. I usually do a workout DVD around 4pm, then take a long cooling shower around 5.30 to 6pm, that's my usual schedule on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Those are my workout days.
I workout during weekends too but Tuesdays and Thursdays are my DVD workout days. But today, I just didn't feel like it. So, I stayed in the air-conditioned room till around 6pm. Then, I thought, shouldn't be too hot now, and headed out for a nice walk.
But after walking for around 30 minutes, with a nice breeze, I headed to a friend's house for a visit. They were just sitting down to dinner so I pinched a few bites (I tracked it all). I came home around 7.30pm and had my proper dinner. But I had a very light lunch earlier (instant mushroom soup), so I'm still below my calorie limit. I'll see what else I can eat later.
I did like an hour and a half Pilates DVD on Tuesday, so maybe I can relax today, but I hope to kick my own butt again this weekend to make up for today's break. Oh well, I'll see...........

I went over my caloric allowance today all because I ate KFC!!!! I had one drumstick and one thigh; both hot and spicy, 2 buns, one serving each of coleslaw and mashed potato. I tracked it and was amazed at how many calories I have consumed!!!!
I don't even dare track the little sips of mountain dew!!!! Oh well, that just goes to show that I can't eat like this everyday! Why was I so hungry? I did 1 and a half hours of Pilates. I sweated quite a bit; it feels so good after a bath.
Oh Gosh! I hope I didn't undo the good of that Pilates session.............sigh! Well, back on the healthy lifestyle wagon!

Yesterday (Saturday) I did some tough Pilates. I'm not really sure, but I think it was like 30 minutes worth, but like I said tough. I couldn't even finish all the reps but the instructor (on Youtube) kept on smiling and doing it like it was nothing!
I wish I had abs like hers but she probably spends hours each day working out because it's her profession. I really like her workouts! She really kicks butt! For those of you who are interested, her name is Cassey Ho and you can find her on youtube under POP Pilates. And, like Sparkpeople, her workouts are free! How cool is that?!
Oh, on to the main subject of this blog. I'm still sore from Saturday's workout, so I took a slow walk today. But my right knee keeps complaining. I suppose I should rest on Monday. I sure hope my knee recovers soon though, cos I can't wait to do some HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), I hear that it burns some serious fat!
