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!

You are looking fantastic Rou! And great job on the Perrier. I have discovered I have 2 categories of friends - those whom are really bothered when I don't drink with them and those who couldn't care less. You can imagine who I want to hang out with! It must have been a great day for a junk trip Saturday!

    Thanks Janet! I guess I am lucky somehow my friends in HK have been very supportive with me doing PCP and I haven't really had major peer pressure (except during my birthday in August). Friends still invite me out (thank goodness!) and they know I am currently a cheap date since I will only drink water Lol Saturday was indeed a great day for a junk trip. Let me know when you want to do a jump rope date with me at Pure on Hollywood road. I workout after work around 7-7:30pm or sometimes 8pm depending on work load. All the best Janet! Last 2 weeks left until new life begins! :)

      Keep it going Rou - can't wait to see you on Day 90!

        Good job on the extra skips and leg workouts. People tends to ignore legs but as this program has affirmed--very important! Sounds like you're keeping very disciplined even when going out, which is something to be very proud of. Looking trim and athletic!

          Helen, you have no idea I am so anxious right now. Only 2 weeks left and I still have more work to do.
          Howard, thanks mate! You are rocking this program! I cannot wait to try that Mozart cake from Island Shang after PCP!

              Light and tight Rou, thats awesome. You've done amazingly well with all these social engagements and believe me it makes a difference. Good to be thinking about how to proceed beyond day 90, understanding your weaknesses and also identifying the knowledge build-up over the course of the program. Sounds to me like all the pieces are falling into place. Final push now, make it happen!

                Thanks for checking me out Mr. & Mrs. PCP! Trying my best to do as much as I can with only two weeks left! Did I really say 2 weeks left?? I actually do not want it to end yet... X
                Gus, final push indeed!
