#1 - Continuing Insanity after a month’s hiatus

Did Pure Cardio today. I don’t know why, but it seems so much easier now than it was last month and I haven’t been doing insanity this month. Only running track & doing some basic workouts at home. I only stopped ONCE doing pure cardio!!! It was a huge achievement for me. Last month I had to stop so many times, even during the beginning. Maybe the hiatus was good for me heh. 

I’m also gonna start doing daily health logs again. Sticking to it, this time.

14/11/11 Daily Log (Day 4)

Had a great run/walk today. Great great great run. Went at 5 minutes per kilometer, which by far is pretty fast to me! :) I had a great day at school too! :) Unfortunately though, I ate some unhealthy food today because I had no other choice But it’s alright. It’s allll good. My fridge/pantry’s running out of healthy food!! No more fruits omfg. Besides bananas though! D: MUST. GO. GROCERY. SHOPPING. Oh, and my class is having a tiny party tomorrow, which is gonna be filled with unhealthy junk. I’ll just have a slice of thin-crust (veggie, hopefully) pizza, and some chips. Everything in moderation! 

Food Intake:

Pre-breakfast (I accidentally woke up at 6.45am and had to leave for school by 7am so by the time I showered & brushed my teeth I didn’t have time for breakfast so I just grabbed some food) - Nutella on white bread. It was just a small piece. Yes I am quite disappointed but I didn’t have any more wholegrain bread & peanut butter at home and I HAD to eat something to break my fast. Like I said, I must get some groceries soon..

Breakfast (at school)- Rice vermicelli + quarter of a hash brown.  

Lunch (I didn’t have any. I had a netball meeting & this girl was selling cupcakes which she claimed to have been made with wholemeal flour, with chocolate icing so I ate one.) - Wholemeal cupcake w/ choco icing

Postlunch snack- Bread w/ sausage. (The ones you find in bakeries) + a handful of pretzels.

Dinner- Rice w/ steamed lean chicken, a LOT of bak choy, + sardine fish.

12/11/11 Daily Log (Day2)

I had a great day. I woke up at noon though; went to a Greyson Chance concert last night!! He was so amazingly talented and right after, we stalked him at his hotel and I TOUCHED HIS HAND and- okay I’ll stop my fangirling here.

Workout:
Sun Salutations + Bodyrock (I’m sexy & I know it) + 34 minute running & walking (couch25k W2D1)

Food:
Breakfast- I skipped this because, as I said, I woke up at noon.
Lunch- Chinese stir-fried rice with bacon + Longan fruit.
Snack- Yakult + Pretzels.
Dinner- Rice + Bacon omelette, Grilled fish, steamed pork & bak choy.

Just so you know, I really don’t control what I eat for lunch/dinner on weekends because my grandma cooks and because I’m Chinese. So yeah, it’s our culture to eat white rice everyday and I can’t change that unfortunately. I do have control over what I eat at school, and I pack my food everyday.
