New lifestyle starts now

I am now in the possibly the worst condition in my life in the recent times.

I’ve been out of job for one month and I have gained a bit of weight that I’m struggling to lose for the past one year. I’m  now weigh at incredibly 268 pounds and my waistline is 48.5 inches.

This has to stop now and I really need to take control of my life before it spiraling out of my control. I have decided that I should become healthier by losing more than 20 pound exactly 30 days for now.

To help me realize this, here what’s I’ve already done.

  1. Make a meal/food log. Record down every single thing that I eat daily
  2. Make an exercise log. Record every physical activities
  3. Make a progress log. Record my weight and body measurement every day

So, here what I going to do starting now:

  • No more rice
  • Substitute rice with oatmeal or whole grain bread
  • Eat small but frequently every 3 hours
  • Do cardio on the stationary elliptical trainer for 15 mins, twice daily
  • Do a body-weight workout routine every other day.

Hopefully I have what I needed to pull this through. So God please help me…

Of getting fit and gym membership

I must admit that I’m not physically fit and my body is far from perfect condition. That’s why I force myself for jogging and do brisk walking every day after work. But lately the whether condition in Kelana Jaya is a bit unpredictable and it always rain every late afternoon. Sometimes I had to stay back until 8pm because of sudden work that needed to be done urgently. Thus, jogging in Kelana Jaya Lake every evening after works is no longer a feasible option for me anymore to get my body fit.

So to get fit,  the only option left  is to join any gym or fitness centre so that I can do my workouts without ever worry abut the whether condition. The only thing stopping me from joining one because the fee might be damn expensive and I don’t own any credit card to pay via monthly installment (but the truth was I quite shy on going to those places). Then the chance I’ve been waiting for came to me in a form of a gift voucher.

So I won a free one month of Celebrity Fitness membership from a lucky draw organized by my company. So I went to the 1 Utama branch to cash my voucher and I was greeted by a quite pretty sales person named Charmine (if I remember correctly). After a brief tour of the facilities and measuring my weight and body fat, she started to sell the membership package to me. But as I’m a though nut to crack, I told her I won’t be joining nor sign anything until I get my free one month membership. So she called her manager, (same old sales pitch they used on everyone else) to give me a better deal.
