Project Fitness [Sep 14]

Today was better. I managed to go for a 5km run in 28 minutes 10 seconds. Not that it is my best timing or my worst but I feel it’s great to have a certain sense of consistency, which I did recently. 

ProjectFitness: 5km in 28mins 10secs

Decided to blog about it as well since I believe everyone needs a bit of motivation to push themselves a little harder. If you have not been running for years now, going for 1km in 30 minutes is as good as what I did. 

Even if you decided to just walk for 30 minutes, it is an improvement than just lying down on the couch. I think what’s important is to do it more often. 

A lot of us are so used to blaming work and a lack of time as an excuse for not being able to exercise. Choice and an intentional effort must be made to make all these changes. 

NOT JUST RUNNING, WEIGHTS AS WELL

Anyway, I was not in the gym just for run today. I managed to focus a bit on weight lifting with the dumbbells in the gym. Not the strongest person so I went with 25lbs, focusing on the biceps, triceps and shoulder. I also did 15 times of sit ups, 3 sets and also burpee for 10 times, 3 sets. Overall, spent about 15 to 20 minutes on the workout.

HOW I EAT FOR THE DAY

As for my diet, I have a bit of a change today. I ate the oats + milo before I hit the gym in the morning since I hardly eat anything yesterday after I vomited. After my workout, I made myself two half-boiled eggs and drink a few glasses of water.

For my lunch, I had something heavier, curry chicken rice. Throughout the day, drank two cups of coffee while working (both with sugar and milk). As for dinner, I ordered one fried chicken, two half-boiled eggs and coffee ice, making it my third coffee. Not the healthiest diet to follow but I think given the situation and environment I’m in, it’s really not bad. 

Hoping to keep up the consistency in both my workouts, running and blogging as well.
