day 2166 – eating discipline

second week into the thirteen week self challenge and i’m doing a much better job than the first week. i turned down the cupcake because i knew i would have serious regrets if i had consumed that. it’s hard road ahead and lots of things to be enticed by, but i’m no stranger to this type of challenge. i must stay on track and stay disciplined for what i really want; not for some short-lived satisfaction

day 2072 – skinny

img_20200124_1337537582007002541905786.jpga look back to when i was at my leanest and also have two happy ankles. at that point, i was eating well and exercising optimally while on properly working ankles. i liked it back then when i was at my lowest body fat percentage with a four pack, while being able to do eleven consecutive pullups. i’m not liking where i am at now; i’m sure the stresses at work and injury troubles plays a big factor. let the cutting phase begin to get back to the best shape i’ve ever been. the time is now to stay focused on my goals and disciplined on how i’m going to get there

day 2008 – intermitting

mid morning grapes is rewarding during my intermittent fasting phase. i’m usually immune to being hangry, though i can’t control being hungry. i’m doing this is to cut down after the holiday season to improve my sports performance as well as to reach my overarching fitness goals. i want to up my game to help with hockey, taekwondo, flips and tricks and dodgeball. also, part of it is just to change up my diet and get it back on track

day 1546 – lost craves

i’m dropping weight since i’ve gone inactive, not a bad thing as it saves me the hassle of cutting so maybe i won’t always be called fat. i’m looking to drop some more while i have a legit reason to restrain myself the calories. knowing that, i consciously haven’t had much of an appetite the past few weeks. muscles mass is taking a hit without the work i do at the gym. my body is in a confused stage and is in worse condition than normal cause it’s not used to not being used. my body just isn’t use to not taking a beating and without it, i still manage to misalign things

day 992 – stuffy day

today is one of those hot and humid spring days that makes me think spring just ended and summer is well on its way. the temperature peaked at 26 during mid day; i was already sweating as i was standing inside the gym about to begin my warm up. i am ready to get my tan started earlier than last year. i am looking forward to this summer; there’s so many exciting things waiting ahead this season

 

day 434 – happy happy birthday

it’s a special day as we have a mini celebration for the best mom i could possibly ask for. wish my mom nothing but the best from the bottom of my heart, because no one does it better than her. another year has gone by in the blink of an eye. we are preparing to chow down on some strawberry mousse cake. so much for cutting out some junk and sweets and trying to maintain a balanced eating regime
