Week 8: You Are What You Eat.

A friend of mine eats breakfast and snacks on “bird food” (a mix of oatmeal and other stuff) all day long. He’s lost quite a bit of weight now. But that’s his goal – to lose weight.

I want to stay at 85kg (I think that’s my weight, my weighing machine’s a little wonky). So I eat more. Not big meals, just more frequently.

Breakfast: egg sandwich + coffee

Lunch: Whatever’s cooked for me

Mid-day snack: Egg sandwich + Orange (or fruit)

Dinner: Whatever’s there

Supper: Whatever’s there or just some fruit.

As you can tell, I’m not very picky about what I eat. Mostly because I work from home and eat whatever my family eats – vegetables, fish, rice. However, I swear by eggs. They’re quick and cheap source of protein. It’s $0.40 for 2 eggs which gives you 12g of protein!

Bone Dry Days: 29 (since 12 Feb)
Bet Days: 27/60 (since 14 Feb)


Front Day: Did it!

Back Day: Did it! Got rid of lunge to high knees and put in 2-Arm Dumbbell Snatches instead.

Running Day:  I’m faster when I’m not running up and down slopes. My dewarted sole aches a bit but not a big deal. Started running a little bit with 5kg weights. It’s tougher than I thought especially after the 2.5km run.
