My resolution

Sunday, February 27, 2011

Hi, I must admit that I'm a little, no, okay, very lazy when it comes to tracking my food and exercise. As a result, I have gained half a kilo because of my carelessness.

So, I've come to a decision. Even though I'm Asian and eat an Asian diet, which makes it difficult for me to track my food here, I've decided that I'll do my best to track my food anyway. Even if it means creating some new foods on the tracker!

I mustn't be to hard on myself if on certain days, when I do skip the food tracking but on the other hand, I must make it a point to do so or any number of things could go wrong and I could end up putting on the kilos!

So, I will try my best to be consistent with :

1) food tracking & healthy eating
2) exercise & exercise tracking

Well, here it goes!

  


Help! I'm putting on weight!!!

Monday, February 21, 2011

I've just put on half a kilo! Help!!!

That's it, double walks and double crunches (abs : main problem area). I also have to cut the snacks! But doesn't it say here in SP that we have to eat when we're hungry? What happens if you're hungry like all the time or just before bed?! Help!

I'm 4 feet 11 and currently weight a little over 120lbs or 56.5kgs. I would LOVE to be 50kgs. Well, I've just got to keep going I guess.......watching what I eat like a hawk and exercising every chance I get!

    One pound isn't bad. It is normal to see a little bit of flux from time to time. Just keep up the good work on watching your nutrition intake and exercise and you will see the results that you're looking for.

Regarding the nutrition tracker...I sometimes have to input my own data if the foods I am eating are not listed in the database. And, if I make something that I know won't be there, I input each individual food item. It can be a little time consuming at first, but you can save everything you list in your favorites so that they will be easily accessible for next time.

Another option...post your Asian cuisine recipes on the SP recipe database! I'm sure there are lots of us who would love to try them out and the database will calculate everything for you.

    My experience is that when I eat more than what my body needs, it all becomes fat. Regardless of your asian diet, you can always count your calories, your carbs, fat, proteins, etc. and acomodate them to your size and body requirements, because otherwise, you cheat on yourself. At leat, that has been my own experience.

    I don't track my meals because the SP nutrition tracker isn't suited to the Asian diet.

    I checked your Nutrition Tracker and I see that you do not track your meals...my suggestion is that you use the tool, it is very effective in letting you "see" what you are doing as far as fueling/nourishing your body. Good luck.

    1/2 kilo? That's only a pound - tomorrow you might be down 3 lbs. Don't stress it. :-)

Addicted to Zenmai Sushi!

Sunday, February 13, 2011

There is this sushi restaurant at the mall near my place that is an absolute hit! During lunch, dinner and especially during weekends, the place is packed! You need to queue to get in. So far, I've queued a few times already.

The thing is, I can understand why the place is so popular, I too, can't get enough of the place. The sushi and other stuff they serve there is delicious! For people who appreciate Japanese food, that is.

I even find myself dreaming of what to order the next time I go there, which will be soon. Another noteworthy place is Seoul Garden, it's a buffet place where you can bbq your own meat. They display lot's of marinated meats that you can just pick and bbq yourself. I will be going there next. Maybe I'll be addicted to this place also soon, lol!

I feel really fortunate to be living in Malaysia, ppl say the food is the best here! I'll have to say, I agree! So far, I haven't come across any food I hate here. In fact, I have to exercise self-control otherwise, well, let's just say I'll be a lot fatter if I didn't........

Aching Abs!

Monday, February 07, 2011

Well, I did some crunches 2 days ago & my tummy is still aching. I also took a walk yesterday but actually, I was window shopping in the nearby mall with a friend. We later had dinner in my favorite Japanese restaurant. We split the bill and our orders. She order 2 medium portions of salmon shashimi and I ordered 1 large portion of smoked salmon sushi and one little portion of unangi sushi, one mixed vegie tempura (naughty, i know!) and green tea.

My friend let me have 2 shashimi pieces and I let her have my chinese mushroom tempura. I just LoVE that restaurant, I'll be going there again as soon as I've saved up some spare cash!

    Do a personal challenge where you drop change in a jar to match the number of sparkpoints you get on a daily basis. Like last night, I dropped $0.54 in my jar because that is how many points I earned for the day. Would have been more if my computer hadn't acted up. Anyway, at the end of the month, use the money to treat yourself to something you like, or roll it over into the next month. I got that off of one of my SP Teams. Have fun.

CNY is here again!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011

Yup, Chinese New Year (CNY) season is here again! Lot's of high fat snacks, mandarin oranges, bbq meat pieces etc. In other words, lot's of yummy food! And most of them are unhealthy.

I made myself a promise that I won't be greedy and consume loads of those high-fat snacks. I'll just take little bites and also promise myself not so many bites as even little bites can add up if I have too many of them.

I love this years CNY mainly because it's not a heat wave! Normally, during CNY season, the house becomes a veritable baking oven because usually there is a heat wave. This year, it's rainy most of the time, so the wheather has been comfortably cool (so nice for napping, lol!).

Well, I also need to exercise more and consistently. Let's see how I do today!
