Week 1, Day 2

Today went just like yesterday. See, I hate cooking. I am really good at it (or so people say) but I just hate cooking for one. So, when I made soup yesterday, I made enough so it would last at least 3 days. I am lazy like that.

Right so, after working out, I got home and I had my first meal. After 2.5 hours, I had a snack and at 22 30, I had my last meal of the day.

Meal 1: Tuna and 2 slices of brown bread (at 17 00)

Snack: Plain, low-fat, low-calorie yoghurt, 8 grapes, 4 strawberries (at 20 00)

Meal 2: Chicken and vegetable soup, 2 slices of brown bread (at 22 30)


Also, it occurred to me yesterday that I completely forgot to write about something very important for weight loss and that’s drinking enough water. I am so not a fan of water. I hate it. If I am not actively trying to lose weight, you won’t even find any water at my place; that’s how much I don’t do water. BUT, when you’re trying to lose weight, drinking water is a big fat must. There is no way around that.

I aim to drink 1.5L of water a day but I rarely stop at that; I usually drink up to 2L. You can spread drinking 1.5L of water throughout your day or if you are even remotely like me and you hate it, what I do is that I take my 1.5L of water to the gym and by the time I am done working out and I walk back home, I finish it. If at home, I feel like drinking some more water then I do that. I know you are supposed to drink water throughout the day but if I try to do that, it just won’t happen. I do what I know works for me.


Finally, let’s talk about what I did at the gym today. Previously, I used to alternate between cardio and circuit training with weights but for this first week, I will only do cardio. WHY? For one, it’s easier to just go to the gym and run for 30 minutes. Secondly, I think I need to lose a few kg before I can handle weights properly (squatting with the right posture, getting lunges right).

So I did steady rate cardio at speed 7.0 for the first 10 minutes (I escalated, that’s right) and at speed 7.5 for the next 20.
