Day 75 What I have learned so far
- Oct 14th, 2013 at 12:06PM
Long weekend in HK was a busy weekend especially with visiting friend in town. It doesn't mean though that I have slacked on diet and exercise. In fact, I even went on a junk boat trip last Saturday with my breakfast & lunch box, fruit/egg snacks in tow. Strictly complied with the diet. Jumped rope in the morning and strength workout after the junk boat trip in the evening. This was my first sober junk boat trip ever and it was not too bad at all. It was such a good sunny day with chilled friends. It helped that I was with 5 boxers on the boat and they were very healthy and I did not have to explain to them much why I had to bring my own lunch. They respected that I was doing something healthy and did not push me to drink at all. I went on a sprinting match with them at the beach and I did not do too bad at all. Must be all the extra jump ropes and leg workout I am doing. I do feel my legs and quads are a lot stronger and firmer.
I've been out twice this week until quite late, way past Kenzai bedtime and I know this is no good for me at all. I had to entertain a friend and her colleagues who are in town for biz trip. I went out twice for dinner and drinks with them. I stayed as PCP compliant possible. This is when I noticed myself breaking down what's in the ingredient of the food on the menu. Doing this made me realize how I've learned so much from PCP diet through out these 75 days in this program. I found myself checking for salt, sugar, processed food used in the menu. I am no longer very attracted to creamy, deep fried, salty food which is weird since I used to love them. I think I will still eat them after this program but it will be in very small quantity and only during an actual indulgence day. My plan post-PCP is to stay eating clean for 5 days and with two cheat days a week. When I say cheat days, it means indulging on my craving during lunch or dinner and having a bit of sweets. The most I miss during these 75 days is having a good chocolate cake. I love chocolate. Period. My plan is to let myself indulge in a chocolate during my cheat days but not on the clean days. Hopefully I have learned by now how to control potions and I will not let myself go off the rails just like that. 'Fatty bom bom' is what my bro-in-law used to call me. How sweet my BIL. Now my 'bom boms' are looking pretty tight these days ;)
'Drinks' meant 5 bottles of sparkling Perrier until 1:30am. My Brit friends visiting town were amused and somehow confused how I stayed on until 1:30am with just water when they drank wine and porn star martinis like 'water.' It is what I call - desperation. Haha
I am feeling light and tight these days. I lost 3kg so far. Still working on my abs. Flab please go away. 8MAs see you later.
15 days to go team! Keep going Errai! We are almost there!
