Ok I’m back. I didn’t achieve my goal last time. I know why. I don’t drink enough. I need to drink at least 4L water but often I drink under 2L.

But anyway, this time I’m setting a new target. My target is to finish a 10km run next month. I’ve been training for the past 2 weeks. It’s amazing how our bodies can adapt to changes.

I’m running almost every day now

I started training on 31st July. I was able to run for 1.67km and that’s it. I couldn’t run anymore without feeling pain on my side & below left shoulder blade.

The second day I ran, I covered slightly more (1.79km) but with slower pace.

Then slowly I began to add more to the distance:

I even managed to cover up to 5km under 1 hour:

Then we had bad weather for a few days, followed by some personal problems so I stopped training for a while. But I didn’t want to ruin the momentum (even though yesterday after 4 days of skipping training I managed to run for 2.21km only). So I ran again today and got this:

Mind you, this is with my kids tagging along on their bikes and they get grumpy after 1km so I had to stop for a while to accompany them walking.

I believe as a result of almost daily training, I had gained more muscle mass but I managed to lose some inches to my waist. I’m looking forward to be able to run 6km non-stop and at the same time lose more inches from those training. Wish me luck!

Thigh: 52cm

Sahur:

  • Shake (2 scoops) + oat
  • 2 glass of water

I’m not losing weight as fast as I hoped. Maybe because I’m building muscles at the same time by doing exercises? Anyway, I still put some hope of at least 3kg weight loss.

Month #2 Isagenix Day #22

Weight: 70.4kg

Waist: 35.5″

This month is a bit challenging to maintain the diet because instead of a 2-days weekend, we have had 3-days weekend for the past 3 weeks consecutively. And I know what happened during weekends – I tend to eat out and eat more.

For instance today my 1200kcal plan went out of the window as my family decided to eat breakfast outside (and it’s impossible to say no to the delicious mee kolok!). Anticipating this plan, I started my morning with workout which I hoped was enough to burn off the calories from the mee kolok:

The perk of owning a Fitbit is being able to sync the workout sessions in FitStar (also by Fitbit) to my Fitbit account so I could see its impact to my calories plan. For example, if I did an activity that is expected to burn 127kcal, my calories budget will be adjust accordingly.

At lunch time, we cooked at home and I managed to control my portion.

My undoing only happened later in the evening when we went to the shopping mall and then decided to dine at Pizza Hut.

Instant regret and self-loathe set in, for not being able to restrain myself during dinner!

There you go, my undoing on myself tonight.

Nevertheless, it’s no use beating myself over things that had already happened.

On a lighter note, I can finally shop at Padini, which previously is something that I wished to be able doing.

I certainly hope that I will be losing more weight this month!
