Just started P90X today!

Starting with Chest & Back X and Ab Ripper X. Never thought workouts could be this fun, honestly! And I’m not even being sarcastic. :’) 

My mid year break is here and I have two weeks off. YAYAYYAAYAY.

MSSWP Track & Field 2012 Day 1

100m - Got first at the heats, 5th at the semifinals. Didn’t get into the finals. Good enough though :) 

My school’s track & field team did so well! 

Congratulations to the beast Shu cean for getting first at her discus!!! 

This week will be eventful and my red cheeks and tan legs will get even redder and tanner. yayyy

First week of Insanity overview:

Ah. The saying “The first is always the hardest” is extremely true. The first time I did Plyometric Cardio Circuit, which was the first (or second, including Fit Test) day of Insanity, I absolutely died at the warmup and even had to take multiple breaks during the warmup. The second time I did it, which was yesterday, I was already much stronger & seldom had breaks out of exhaustion throughout the whole workout. I feel much better, much faster, much more agile & stronger and it’s only been the first week!

AIGHT. NO MORE PROCRASTINATION, I’m going to do Cardio Power & Resistance now :) 

JUST FINISHED INSANITY PLYOMETRIC CARDIO CIRCUIT

Was supposed to go on a run today, but it was raining and my mom was using the treadmill. You might think I’m using the rain as an excuse, but I’m not. I would love to run in the rain, but I’m afraid of getting sick before Japan.

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.
