Fitness Blog #7

Ok. I Admit it. The fitness part in my blog has gone nowhere. It's been mostly food, I might as well strike-out the fitness part. It's been more than a year since I started this blog (wow can u believe it?!) and I've lost 0 pounds. Nada, None, Zilch.

So anyway, here I am again trying..... Read on

Last June 28, we joined this 12-week weight loss challenge ( sponsored by Herbalife (which I eventually found out during the 1st meeting). Basically, how it works is everyone chips in $30. Every week for 12 weeks there is a weigh-in and the challenge is based on fat percentage loss, to be fair to everyone. If u gain weight, you pay $2. At the end of 12 weeks, the top3 men and women who've lost the most body fat percentage take the pot money!! Not bad eh?!

So anyway, today (July 19), is supposed to be the 3rd weekly weigh-in but I couldn't make it because I had to help my cousin wrap her wedding giveaways (her wedding is a few days from now). Please disregard the date of this post, it will actually show the date that you created the post and not when you posted it.

Anyway, I'm quite happy with my progress so far. Slow but better than none. Every week, they teach us some lessons about weight management and healthy eating thru videos and lectures (and of course push their herbalife products on the side).

Here is my progress so far:

June 28, 2009 - 122.9kg (270lbs); 36.9% Body Fat
July 5, 2009 - 121.3 (266lbs); 36.5% Body Fat
July 12, 2009 - 120.8 (265lbs); 36.5% Body Fat
July 19, 2009 - Absent

Yes I know I'm so damn heavy!! But not bad, 5 lbs in 3 weeks. If I keep it up for 12 weeks, I should lose at least 20lbs. Basically, I eat one brown rice meal a day (lunch only with veggies and tofu) then I eat tuna in olive oil with 3 hi-fibre crackers for dinner. I'm trying my best to cut down on snacking by replacing it with almonds or yogurt. Plus, I have been trying to go to the gym at least 2x a week doing at least 1hr of cardio (at least 700 calories burned).

Darn, why is it so hard to lose weight??!! :P
