Today it was the day for the elliptical machine. I printed out the 30 minute elliptical workout from spark pages and tried the workout for the first time. Honestly, it was soooo challenging for me. Just way too difficult. I did manage to finish ... Read more

I've not been doing very well with running. Shin splints are killing me. Hence I decided not to take my legs for granted anymore. I remember not being able to do any exercise when I had knee issues. Now with persistent shin splints I know that ... Read more

It's been slightly more than 3 months since I've started working out regularly. By regular, I mean at least 4 times a week. I notice that I have my lazy days - the days where I don't want to work out as much. The days where I sit around thinking... Read more

Today was gym day. I decided to start off with the tread mill. I usually don't last very long because I get bored and so I have to hop onto something else after a while. I lasted 25 mins. Then I moved to the stationary bike. I had planned to wor... Read more

Today I decided to try swimming. Again I felt the same way I felt just a couple of weeks ago, when I was first stepping into the gym. I was self conscious and wondering if anyone was looking, staring or wondering what the hell I was doing. ... Read more
The weighing scale maniac
Sunday, October 06, 2013      2 comments

Did I tell you that I am a weighing scale maniac? I have a real problem with the scale just like alcoholics with drinks or chain smokers with cigarettes. Once I step on it, I keep wanting to step on it throughout the day to see if it just tips a... Read more
The days where I want to eat everything I see
Sunday, October 06, 2013      0 comments

I do well with food most of the time. Then there comes a day (typically about once a week), where I just want to keep eating. As if there's some hunger deep within, something that quite doesn't hit the spot, and so I need more food to fill that ... Read more

Yesterday was a bad day. The day started off fine and then along the way I made some bad choices, like chocolates and chips to curb my hunger. I still ate within calorie range and thought it was ok. But I woke up in the middle of the night becau... Read more
