"Lei sau cho hou tor!"(You lost a lot weight!)
Her friend Carlos also nodded in agreement.... Arrgh!(I was thinking of blogging about Carlos at the end but on 2nd thought, he deserves a seperate entry)
Actually ever since I came to KL, I've been losing weight- not because I have been eating less, but I've been working out more. I've tried to eat more in fact but still every now and then people would comment, " You lost weight again ah?"
So today, I'm making a couple of resolutions:
1. I will take my Ensure religiously
I bought it earlier this year but so far I've not been taking it consistently. This nutritional powder is NOT a muscle builder but it's supposed to provide "complete and balanced nutrition for use as a meal replacement, tube feeding or as a nutritional supplement"- the basic stuff you give to terminal patients.
Anyhow, my resolution is to take it in the afternoon, mixing it with 3-in-1 Milo. Ensure sure tastes a lot better than the whey & egg powder I used to take when I started going to gym in Sydney, but I'm not a vanilla person. I'll just finish this and buy a chocolate flavoured one.
2. I will eat more protein and not just carbohydrate
Gf said that the reason I'm losing weight is because I'm not eating enough protein- char koay teow at Paramout PJ may be nice but the carbo I eat during lunch is normally used up by the end of my second class. Therefore, I should take more protein like tofu and meat for lunch instead.
Aitelyu, I think I can blame my loss of weight to the fact that this lady at SS2 food court has not been operating her western food stall for more than a month. I used to eat fish n' chips with gf after my tuesday axis classes but she's not around all this while- apparently she's taking care of her daughter who just delivered(according to another stall owner) but it's been more than a month already leh! Today we're going there again and if she's not around still, I'm going to order from the other stall even though the guy's tartar sauce
3. I will eat supper every now and then
I used to be a strong advocate against supper, but not anymore I think. Supper is probably the most unhealthy meal because Malaysians in general love the mamak food to death, espeically the roti canai and curry stuff. At the rate I'm going, I think eating nasi kandar/roti canai could probably do me good.
4. I will pretend to work hard in class
Just as much as I want to make the fourth resolution, I don't think this can ever be achieved. The moment I step in the class and the music starts, I become someone else- an instructor. My sole purpose standing/sitting in front is to inspire and motivate the members, who came not to get a half-hearted instructor showing them how to work hard, but a dedicated instructor who works hard with them. When I see the members, I somehow forget about how bad the day has been or how tired I am, and just give them the best I could give.
No, it's not a commitment. It's more than that.... it's a PASSION.
