Progress on Day 24 :)))))

See that smile on top? Ha! Hehe.....

I am, so far, quite happy with my results but I still have long way to go. I have only achieve 30% of my goal, but that 30% served as my motivation, because I cannot wait and see what the results will be like if I have achieved 100% later.

I measured myself on Oct 3, 2011 and my weight was 51kg with a whooping body fat percentage of 26.6% *gasp!!* I was at the FAIR level, going to OBESE, according to the scale at the gym. (I really dunno how they judge obese, but I don't really look obese lah, don't you think? Far than obese, but definitely not lean, that I know) Definitely was very disappointed with myself. Few friends actually commented on my Krabi beach pictures that I look "normal" and didn't look athletic. That served as my "wake-up call" hence the diet.

My diet is very simple. High protein low carbs. Very easy to prepare as well, at home I mean, but rather difficult to find outside. I realise that I really need to be mentally strong when I eat outside, especially when I'm with friends. Most people do not understand why I eat this way. So far, if I happen to eat outside, I can only eat Nandos since the chickens are all grilled, or the salmon from Ikea. Hm..what else? I don't really dig steak, plus it's too expensive to eat outside anyway. Not worth the money anyway. 

So my breakfast everyday will be oat 2 tbs + 2 hard boiled egg white. (I added a handful of raisins and 1 yolk in my previous 3 weeks diet, but now not anymore) My lunch mostly is outside since I'm working, so usually will be fish and some vege, no rice. My dinner is usually either 2pcs of chicken drumstick skinless or 1 block of salmon and 1 chicken drumstick skinless, long beans and carrots, all dumped into the steamer. (Just like image below). My only sauce will be Nando's Extra Hot Peri-Peri, for taste. Sometimes I will have mustard, or oyster sauce with cili padi. I will have 1 cheat-meal day in a week, so that I won't go crazy at the end of diet. :P

 My dinner

So after dieting like this for about 2 weeks, coupled with training of 5x a week, I have managed to drop 2% of body fat, and am now at GOOD level. I intend to go until ATHLETE level, which will be around 20%. It's definitely working, doesn't it? So, I'm gonna stick to this diet and workout routine until Dec 10 for Zoukout. Yeayyy baby!! Heheheeeeeeee...........

 Me in May 2011

Me in 2nd week of Oct 2011

I wanna be like her, especially her abs. So I still have
long way to go. 70% more!!
And am definitely going to get fake tan later. Tanned skin enhances
the muscles more muahahahaha!!

Progress is not good

It is sad to say that my progress for the last 2 months was not really good. Been slacking, not watching my diet due to loads of open houses, family emergency, bla bla snore. Yeah.. I know, excuses, excuses and more excuses. 

I got a wake up call, a so-called wake up call when few friends, very honestly, commented on how I look recently. They said I don't "look athletic", but rather "normal-looking" and "have shrunk" despite the fact that I'm training more than other people. It was really sad to hear that all my 4 years of hard works have gone to waste in just a matter of 2 months time. 

Ok. Maybe not 4 years. Maybe 2 years. The basic knowledge is still there, but people won't know how much you  know unless they talk to you right? Well not that I'm super smart or anything. Plus, as much as I do not want to admit, first impression does matter. So when I look like "normal people", people will wonder, what the heck have I been doing at the gym? Ok. Maybe I'm making all these up, but this is what I'll think of if I see some girl who doesn't walk the talk.  

Anyway, I have already made up my mind not to get distracted by other things ie hanging out with friends, eating Chillis on Friday nights (just an example. I don't really always go to Chillis anyway), or drinking beer on Saturday nights. One of my weaknesses is I care too much about what other people think of me. But it's good. Whatever negative comments that they have said about me, I'm taking it positively and will promise myself that I will prove them wrong one day. 

It just that maybe the 5x5 training doesn't work for me. For some of you who doesn't believe in functional training, surprisingly, during that 2 months of the training sometime in March, I was in my best-est shape ever. I've gained muscle mass and my body fat percentage went down. Maybe this type of training works for me. I dunno. I need to start experimenting again what works best for me and what is not. 

I am only in 3rd day of diet and so far, I still can managed. I dunno what will happen after 2 months though. hehehe.....everyday I eat the same thing. Morning oat + 1 egg + 1 tbsp of raisins. Lunch fish + vege. Snack 3 egg whites + 1 fruit. Dinner 2 chicken steam + long beans + carrots. Post workout tandoori chicken. Still not so bad for now. After all it's only my 3rd day. So.....

Well, wish me luck! Hope I can prove them wrong by December 2011. Toodles~!
