I felt much better after 2 full days rest (and it was weekend so no stress from work, hehe). But still dizzy and a slight uncomfort with my throat and a bit feverish, I think from the heat when I drove back home - the car was parked at full-expose area so the inner was oven-hot and it also still too hot on my way back, the air-con thankfully helped to cool down a bit. So, for Spring Into Shape Challenge (SIS) workouts, I did most of the exercises at half repetitions. Even my jump rope speed was decreased, the first two 1-min interval were less than 120 jumps (my minimum jumps per minute).
Lately, our family have fishes for dinners and lunches and those fishes are so fresh and delicious, mmmm. Even if just grilled or fried! I love live in this state where we can get lots of fresh sea products at cheap prices :D

1. Morning, 4-min, Quickies
# 10 sets of Forward Lunges (1 rep) + Side Lunges (1 rep) + Reverse Lunges (1 rep) + High Knee (1 rep). So, it's like this. Forward lunge then side lunge then reverse lunge and end with raise one knee up. Alternate legs till get 10 sets.

Thanks to TOM, my body had lots of aches, sorenesss and cramps at the middle section. And I was more sleepier than ever, thankfully it were Saturday & Sunday :D
So, no exercise, just spend more time lying on my stomach - I felt much better in this position :D Besides, whenever I tried to workout on my first few days of period, it would become much worse and it felt so icky (heavy flow, lots of blood, sorry, Too Much Info, haha).
Oh, and I ate lots of fruits for my Workdays Challenge #03 - bananas, watermelon, honeydew and pineapple, mmmmmm.

Must be because of the Pilate more challenging exercises on Bosu or coz I had to tighten my butt to avoid gas accident in front of my trainer (hehe) or maybe bits from both. This was from Thursday. Anyhow, with those ached butt and thighs, I just didn't have any mood to do workouts after work. Which is why thankfully I did Quickies in early morning.
Then today, I found out why - Friday's aches was my pre-TOM. It's always like this, about a week before my period, I will easily get aches even from normally-not-sore-at-all and my body will feel heavier and so tired. And more sweaty, more peeing, haha.
Push aside those aches, I finally got my Michael Buble's CD, yay! I love his music but I kept delaying buying his CD. From this album, I like "Kissing A Fool", "Come Fly With Me", "For Once In My Life", "Fever", "Sway" and faster beat "Crazy Little Thing Called Love". Oh, maybe more than half from the album, haha.
My workout on Friday, 20th April 2012:
1. Morning, 3-min, Quickies
# Squats 10 reps
# Skater Squats 5 reps each side
# Forward Lunges 5 reps each side
# Lateral Lunges 5 reps each side
Total minute = 3 minutes

I drank not one, nor two but three types of tea on Thursday! I think in total it was at least 6 cups of tea! Maybe I'm like those people who are addicted with coffee but in my case, it's tea, hehe.
The 1st tea was Herbalife Tea Mix with Hibiscus Peach Flavor, "This delicious tea mix blends green tea and orange pekoe with cardamon seed and hibiscus for a tasty treat." Yes, it's tasty compare to normal tea, no need to add sugar, and smell nice, too - at least, for my taste, hehe. According to my sister in-law who also the distributor, this tea can be include as part of daily water intake so I made about 1 liter and brought to the office.
2nd tea that I took, after I finished the Herbalife tea, was a mug of hot jasmine green tea. Because it was so hot, I had to wait for about an hour before I can drink it! And because I put a lid onto the mug, the temperature lowered very, very slowly, even though my cubicle was icy cold, hehe.
And lastly, back at home, for daily tea with my parents. It was the normal tea, I think people called it black tea? Anyhow, I usually drink this a lot, mainly because I love it and no one else want to finish the tea from the big stainless steel teapot :D I think this tea might unfortunately contribute to my slow weight loss because it's tea with sugar. I once tried use less sugar but my mom noticed that and claimed I made tasteless tea :( Maybe that's why I'm not too big with sugary or sweet treats as I've got it from tea!
So, this is me, a tea-loving girl :D No coffee for me, that stuff either make me sleepy or headache and the worst, pee a lot LOL

I usually eat my fruits at night, rarely at daytime. And sometimes I don't even get to eat any, even at night :(
So, this week's challenge for myself - eat fruits at daytime. So far, I managed to get fruits even if just dried type (raisin) :D And lots of bananas, the best thing about living in a tropical country!
