dinner and workout - I chose workout tonight

I went to gym late today. My initial plan was to exercise on the Arc Trainer machine for 20 minutes before taking a nice bath and headed to Batu Maung to have our usual dinner with Min Fei and colleagues. But after 20 minutes, I decided to stay back and run on the treadmill. And so the gang left me there

It was at first kinda pathetic, as I could imagine them eating their favourite kam hiong pork rice / bai kut ong (pork ribs) rice while chit chatting there, and here i am sweating and running on the boring machine... But after the first 20 minutes, I realised that I could still go on with another 20 minutes on cardio mode. Therefore I spent 40 minutes on the treadmill and 20 minutes on Arc Trainer (a total of 495 calories burnt) for today. Not sure was it good enough for a person who is desperate to get rid of the fats like me, but tonight I had this sense of achievement as I was able to resist the temptation to go dinner and take another bowl of soupy mee / rice which would be adding extra calories to my body. Moreover, tomorrow night we are heading to BM for a nice steamboat dinner at Zi Wei Yuan Steamboat (紫薇園魚頭火炭爐) to celebrate our 3rd working years anniversary. aiks, now you know y I was so disciplined tonight la ;P (so that I will not be feeling bad tomorrow for the feast)

So yeah... I'm proud with the achievement! ^ ^v (Decided to take some photos of me after the nice bath at gym) hehe.... syeok sendiri la.....

decided to syeok sendiri (SS) after drying my hair

looked tired but definitely satisfied with the achievement today ^^

Initial plan after reach home = 1 vitagen while enjoying HK series on Astro
Turned out to be = 1 vitagen + some nice durians found in the fridge + pasembor which i shared with mom while enjoying HK series on Astro

good night peeps

Hello Ying Ying!.. Which gym is that? You sure know how to enjoy life! I will follow your nice blog.

Haha I tried not to worry too much on what I eat, and focus more on how much can I burnt.

Resisting invitation for good food is always the hardest part. Especially when it comes from friends.

Anyway, you're doing great! Need to hear more updates from you. Lets keep on encouraging each other!

Jia you!!!
