One of my new year resolutions for
A GAZILLION YEARS was to lose weight and be healthy & fit. I was contemplating doing a lot of things, even aquarobics (how much more makcik can I get?) etc. I have to admit that in the back of my head, there was this wild idea that I wanted to be sedated for a month or maybe someone like me will need half a year (but I’m going to miss Saeed!) so that I won’t eat for a few months and then I’ll wake up thinner than Kate Moss. But alas, that’s a wild idea PLUS, it’ll take just a couple of weeks before I gain it all back. So yes, no easy solution. Nope, we’re going to take the long route this time round. I was contemplating muay thai and I KID YOU NOT when I say it really makes you work your whole body more than a toddler does. Ok, NO NO.. nothing can make you work like a toddler does. Toddlers work your body/brain/emotions etc and will press your buttons till you think you are about to snap and then they become the cutest, sweetest thing possible…. like a reverse Gremlin. You know how Gremlins look all sweet and cute at first but later on become… erm.. Gremlin. Toddlers go into this constant state of Gremlin and reverse Gremlin (where they behave like Gremlins but then look all innocent and cuteypatootey). Makes life exciting! Yes. I love my son. Yes. Wait, this entry should be about my resolution.. why is Saeed in this entry? Because I think of him ALL THE TIME , well except when I step into Sephora and he’s at home safe and sound. Okay, stop it Haz.
Where was I? Ah yes, I decided that I must get fit first before I do muay thai. I mean, look at the GIRLS there. They look so fit. If I walk there, people would think I’m like a GIANT walking beanbag (I can’t say punching bag because even a punching bag feels tighter than me).. and it is dangerous to look like one in a muay thai gym. So yes, let’s go back to the drawing board. DRAWING eh, not chopping board. No, I don’t think about food ALL the time. In the end, I decided to join a particular gym that has circuit training. It looks fun (HAHA) but most importantly is that it’s TOTALLY do-able. They have a
torture weight-loss programme (no, I didn’t ask for any evaluation from anybody who’s not a trainer there so don’t say anything when you see me and feel that I have not lost anything) that sounds reasonable and do-able so I joined it!
What do I have to do? Circuit training (about 30mins) for at least 3 times a week + 2 vibration sessions (really felt like a human pager here! Beep beep.) and they MONITOR my every meal.
MAMPUS. I have to take a picture of my bfast (bye bye epok epok and croissant), lunch (bye bye hajah maimunah) + dinner (bye bye 4 fingers and all that is crispy and sedap and sewaktu dengannya and durian dessert). I had to take note of the calories as I’m only allowed 1200 calories per day. MAMPUS. Breakfast is now normally smoked salmon crumpet (kayalah Kraftwich) because it’s less than 200 calories. I’m a creature of habit and I was highly amused when one of the trainers ask me why I ate the same breakfast everyday. BAHAHA. Lunch can be a bit more flexible but have to eat less rice and choose healthier lauk. Yes, no lemak bercream bergoreng etc. Sometimes I eat smoked duck sandwich. Ok fine, almost every other day. Seems that all these smoked things are of lesser calories. I have to avoid carbo to the best of my ability and nafsu and determination for dinner. In the end, I end up baking chicken breasts and eating it with veges. Since I still need chilli, I end up wrapping my chicken in lettuce leaves. SEDAP. No nasi, no hal. I slept hungry most nights but I did not succumb ok. I drank lots of plain water to make me fuller. If I am hungry mid-day, I’ll eat fruit instead and NO, CHEMPEDAK GORENG is not fruit unfortunately.
I make sure I go to the gym at least 3 times a week (I want to go more but I also want to spend time with Saeed
bedekkk, you malas) .. yes even when I feel like my body want to break and I just want to lie down and watch kdrama and eat chocolate cake. The circuit includes alternate cardio plus weights. I told the husband that I squat more now than those people who live in houses with squatting jamban. TIRED SIS. But I feel really good after each work out session. ALL THOSE ENDORPHINS. I told the husband that I feel like I could run from Bedok all the way to our house after each session but of course I have not done that. I can say that each session is tiring (Penat nak mampus doing all the lifting ok) and yet exciting. I’m a determined person so I don’t give up easily. Yesterday I honestly was scared cos NOBODY was there.. except imaginary hantus. But I’m proud to say that I worked myself harder when nobody is looking! I can feel more stamina as days go by and I challenge myself by putting more weights on the machines. YAY HAZ. WTG! I am of course STILL VERY FAR away from my goal but I’ll make sure I’ll get there. I even unfollowed Fluff bakery on my instagram. I haven’t eaten the prosperity burger this year too (it’s more than 1000 calories if you get the meal. Tak ke mampus! Oh yes, I’ve become those menyampah people who google the calories of everything so that I can make a better decision of what to eat). So yes, a pat on my back. I don’t know how long I’ll take but I’ll make sure I’ll get there. I need to be healthier before I do another frozen transfer or IVF too. At least I know I’ve tried to the best of my ability.
The husband has also started going to the gym but he barely has any weight to lose.
He’s shoving durians down his throat in front of me though and I really should not talk about this or else people say I open aib my husband.. yalah.. dia tak bedal durian lah. tak lah tak lahhhhhhhhhhhhh. Ok bye.
P.S : You can laugh with me but please not at me! I can look at myself candidly tapi I feel terluka hancur if people laugh at my weight and my attempt.
P.P.S : Please be reminded not to be a judge/evaluator etc. Please do not tell me, ‘oh you haven’t lose weight’ or ‘eh good that you are finally doing this’ (EHSHUTUPEH) or ‘oh you’ve lost a bit but got a long more to go’. EH PLS EH. TAK PAYAH. NO NEED. If I wanted a judge, I’d have walked into
geylang market the supreme court. K thanks.
