This is the ugly truth about my physical fitness! I am not overweight but my body fat percentage is under “risky” — i have 43lbs of fat mass. HAHAHAHAHA
So after I got myself measured, I went to the treadmill to burn off some calories. My run became a jog, my jog became brisk walking, and my mileage of 4km became 2km. In this body, that was pretty much all I could do!
What a huge breakdown!!! Haha i cant believe i was able to finish a 16km run just last year! It not that I can’t believe how unfit i am now, its more like its so unbelievable i was THAT fit! Hahaha
So here is a screenshot of my first day back in the gym:
Thank you for the eye opener, Lord. Thank you for giving me the strength to go to the gym today, and for giving me courage to step on that damned TANITA machine. XD And lastly, thank you for giving me the peace of mind! Instead of my usual self that tends to dwell on making myself wrong and being sad about things, I can pretty much just laugh it off and actually look forward to being active again!
I think the main difference between then and now is that I have a pretty reliable grasp on being responsible. (Yes, I am saying I CAN be more responsible now.) I saw my current physical state simply as the consequences of my actions! Too much sitting around in front of my computer, too much pizza (yumm), too much rice!! And because of owning all of these excess fat and lack of muscles, I no longer have to deal with depression and blame! Instead of wasting time, I get to focus on my intentions and to get right back on track!!
This year I created Love, Adventure and Beauty. In each of these possibilities, physical fitness works!! So I’m upping the ante: This year, I wont only lose 20 lbs, but ill maintain it — its so easy for me to get back in shape, but I’ve never managed to keep it for more than a year! This means a low fat high protein and whole grainy diet, no fast food!! More importantly, regular exercise! Haha (the latter is so easy to neglect when i become so busy with work, my business and traveling!)
Yesterday I shared my Karawow Project, but only up until may 2011. Ill definitely be extending it up to 2012. And ill be renaming it to Karawow Lifestyle! Heeheee XD
