Friday with tears and sweat

I pushed the heavy door open and walked into the familiar place again this evening. Still seeing people running and cycling there even though it's a Friday.

I was very emotional these two days. Just wonder why the number is not going down as quickly as I thought it would. I had been very discipline this one whole week, and yet the results is not very encouraging. WHY?

I should have controlled my emotions during my workout.. At certain point i really almost cried but then i could't because i was gasping for air and panting like Conan after we bring him for a walk outside. i found it really funny now.. hehee.....  i tell you,
You cant cry when you are doing workout!!!!!
do try it out yourself and let me know...


Ahh...  was really frustrated and disappointed with myself! Just as I thought it was gonna be a gloomy Friday night for me, he came in. and joined me in the gym. I guessed he could sense my sadness, or saw my status update in FB maybe... not sure.. but the fact that he went to gym this evening was an encouragement to me.

We went over to Nando's to join the gang for dinner. Guess what I ordered? Quarter Chicken with Peri Chips and Coleslaw for sidelines!!!!!!! no lahhhhh of course................... I ordered this instead
Photo taken after i finished half of the salad

Caesar Salad (which i very much regretted later) because of the Parmesan Cheese they sprinkled on it (i dun like Parmesan Cheese) However, i did finish the salad and it also filled my empty stomach for the evening.

I'm feeling so much better now!
I know that I'm not supposed to be so emotional and breakdown so easily. What to do, even the greatest machine breaks down occasionally and need  maintenance right?
I will continue on this journey with a better spirit next week. Though it's a bumpy ride, but I know I will never walk alone :)
Blessed weekend to you all.

Ying Ying~~~ we are in this together! Haha I have a habit of going on the scale only once or twice a month cause I know obvious result can only be seen after awhile training. Laaaaast time I almost everyday also check out my scale, haha not very encouraging. its either always constant or it goes up.

Dont lose heart my fellow comrade! There's always another day for a greater result! Jia you to all of us!

Hey. I've been there. It's after my matrics when I got all ballooned up from the daily Malay food.
Perhaps you can try a weighing machine with much smaller scale. So whenever you lost even 0.1 kg u can c the scale moves left a little. It might encourage you more. Hehe
Don't lose hope and also don't get carried away by it else what's the whole point of getting fitter right? Haha
+U +U. And wish you a great weekend ahead~ ^^

YT said...

Most important is to stay happy and healthy. U are in quite a perfect size and u don actually need to slim down a lot. But as usual we girls are never content with our weight eh?

But I always believe in doing it gradually and not get obsessed with weight.

Why let the number pull u down?

Don worry and be happy k :) Jia you!
