Haha, just bumped into an old secondary school friend! I was so happy when she said that I lost weight! AHAHAH!
So now that unit life has started, I have been going to the gym a lot. If I don’t have duty, it is go to the gym for exercise day. My workout will start with me running on the treadmill for about 4km, then 10 sets of lat pull down, 10 sets of bicep curl and finally 10 sets of chest pulls. I will then end the work out with a simple core game I learned from my friend.
I am glad to say that my body is looking better than it has even been.
Several things I have learned from working out.
1. How hard it is to burn calories and fats.
Man, I can tell you that running at 13km/hr for 4.5km only burns 336 calories…. That is like ONE Lor Mai Kai. I have been reading up on this. I have been counting calories going into my body.
2. Diet is so important
Diet is SOOO important. I mean, it is just logical. If you are eating more calories than you are burning, it is obvious that you will gain weight. Hope I will be motivated to lose more weight. I am so sad that I have gained 4 kilos since BMT. Probably just me eating without thinking. -sigh- so sad….
3. Just because you have a good looking body doesn’t mean you are fit/you will get a better score for IPPT.
-sigh- such a sad truth. I haven’t been training for IPPT at all, I thought that my gym work outs will be sufficient, but to my horror, I was SOOO wrong. I did static exercises when I was in Taiwan because I was rather scared that I will lose my fitness after eating so much. Goodness, my 37 push ups and 53 sit-ups became 30 push ups and 42 sit-ups. Goodness. I had a worse looking body then but I was so much fitter.
This means that I will need to train more for push-ups and sit-ups. While I run more too. Probably conduct my own speed training every once in a while. I am quite happy to say that I am running as fast as the SOD people.
Oh well, I most definitely gained more weight from Taiwan as well. This is so sad…
Oh just saying but Kaoshiung and Tainan are definely better than Taipei and Tai Chong in just about every aspect. AHAHA, but that is for another post.
Oh and there is this friend of mine, I dunno, I am close to him and all, but like, it is really hard for me to trust what he says sometime. I dunno, I find him too confident about what he thinks he knows. I sometimes hear him talk about stuff that I clearly know more than him and he is arguing with me about it. Why is there even anything to argue about? It just frustrates me because he is quite a dear friend. Just wish that he will gain a bit more substance before being confident about what he says.
