1st Quarter 2013 Plan

Monday, December 31, 2012

My plan for 1st Quarter 2013 - January to March:
- Start Qiamullail
- Track food, especially snacks
- Follow workout plans
- Reward sleep points when sleep before 23:00 (to get something nice!)
- Save MYR 5 daily for my Tram Fund by end of 1st quarter 2013 :D

I haven't done any Qiamullail lately (wake up early in the morning, before Subuh prayers, to do some Sunat prayers such as Tahajjud, Taubat, Hajat & Witr). So, I want to start my new year with my first Qiamullail :D Besides, after I've received lots of good things in life, this is one of ways for me to say thanks to Allah :D I will try continuously do daily, at least one Tahajjud and one Witr prayers.

I think I did quite well in December 2012 by tracking my food and not just mindless and endlessly eat - lost 0.5 kg every week and that's with once/twice light workout per week and average 5000 steps daily! Even though I didn't religiously track my food in SP, I list down everything in my phone (thanks, Samsung Galaxy S2, my 1st smartphone, hehe). I think because I need to list down everything, I felt more cautiously to eat and besides, when I ate too many, that means I had to write a lot and I'm a half-lazy person so obviously I try to avoid eating too many to avoid spend too many time writing in a small screen (computer keyboard still the best typing tool LOL)

To persuade myself sleep early, I will reward myself with Sleep Points:
- MYR 2 for sleep before 10 pm
- MYR 1 for sleep before 11 pm

I'm also saving money for buying mini trampoline :D So, MYR 5 per day in 3 months should be enough to buy one Reebok Trampoline 36", including delivery charge :D


My workout plan is to restart my exercise level such as start my dumbbell weight at 1 kg (the dumbbell handle weight, haha) then steadily increase the weights (I have adjustable dumbbells, bought 2nd hand from a colleague who moved to another country). I think I've grasp the idea of food control in December 2012 so in this 1st Quarter, I want to start include exercise consistently and see how I can adjust my food accordingly:
- Cardio: 30-min/week
- Strength: 60-min/week + Increase dumbbell weights at least after 4 weeks
- Flexibility: 60-min/week (Pilate class once instructor starts class again)

    Once you get it, consider taking out the cover (the one in blue), as you might step on it and it will rip easily. After a few sessions, mine got ripped and is falling apart. Sure, you will expose the springs, but your cover will have no hole and will be like new!

    That's a beautiful color mini tram, if you can get it exactly like that. Once you get used to it, it's a lot more fun than jumping rope, due to the max results with the least effort theory. It's in our human nature to like maximum results with the least amount of effort. Thus, we enjoy swimming (less friction than on the ground), skating over running (less friction) or biking, jumping with little effort on the tram, etc..
