  1. Wow thanks a lot guys! Added them all to my to-read list. Can't wait to read
  2. Anyone has recommendation for good basic or popular Christianity books? Currently I'm reading CS Lewis's Mere Christianity. Thanks!
  3. I'd say go for the gym to find some motivation and learn or refresh some basic moves from the free personal training sessions. Can you cancel the membership any time or is there a minimum contract? If you're already feel comfortable with the workout routine, you can continue it at home
  4. WEEK 3 DAY 6 I planned for another Freeletics session but then something happened with my shoes and I ended up doing Tai Chi for the first time. It's fun and relaxing! WEEK 3 DAY 7 I found out about Metabolic Typing Diet and got good answers about my diet there. It seems that as a Mixed Type, my food choice is right on track (balance between carbs and protein), the problem is I snacked too much LOL Achievement: 30 seconds faster on doing 50 burpees and my body is getting more toned. Even though I developed more stamina due to the new workout regimen, I didn't see much progress on my goal.
  5. WEEK 3 DAY 4 - My super tight pants now almost fit perfectly on me. Yay! - I've tried. I've tried with all my might. I ate sauteed broccoli and scrambled egg with oil and oregano seasoning for breakfast. Somehow I quickly felt hungry again and got cranky because apparently I don't like the food. The rest of the day I ate sweet breads and I realized that breakfast is my favorite meal of the day. I've tried skipping my breakfast before and then I turned into a monster for a day. For me, breakfast must be the best meal of the day to stabilize my all-day mood. I'm fine with oily and salty food for
  6. Thanks! Burpees are crazy. Reaaally crazy. --- WEEK 3 DAY 2 - I finished up the rest of the pound cake. (cake 3/3) Lesson learned: bake only a quarter of the recipe to avoid overeating. WEEK 3 DAY 3 - The famous bread chain store Rotiboy released a new variant and I bought it. Too sweet though. (bread 1/2) - I ate Kahlua Cake leftovers. (cake 4/3) Lesson learned: 1. Instantly log my meals. Once delayed, I ate too much. 2. Do not restock on oats. The calories are crazy. Better eat no-fat scrambled egg with a cup of vegetables. 3. Eat in moderation. The Freeletics-hunger effect is fading n
  7. WEEK 3 DAY 1 - As expected, I ate my dad's birthday cake. That's 1 out of 3 times of my cake allowance. - Unexpectedly, I saw a brand new cake shop around my lunch area, and of course, being super curious of everything new, I bought the cheese cake. That's 2 out of 3. I didn't expect that at the first day of the week I only got 1 chance left to eat cake! - For workout, I got a new PB (personal best) time for Aphrodite Standard on Freeletics (45:19) My goal is under 30 minutes, but I'm happy because my time is getting better and better! Plan: 1. Avoid eating out. 2. If #2 is unavoidable, go to
  8. Somehow I can't use Google Chrome browser to post I'm using IE now. WEEK 2 - Even though I feel extremely tired after Freeletics workouts, my stamina greatly improved! - Improved sleeping time and duration, and felt energized after waking up. - Despite the change of season from summer to rainy, and people around me mostly suffered from common cold, my boosted immune system from exercise and healthy eating prevented me from getting sick. - Food intake increased greatly for 2 weeks, especially in the morning post-workout. - I realized my healthy eating willpower ran out quickly after heavy wo
  9. WEEK 1Achievements:- Body measurements: thigh -1 cm- Bread-free for 6 days.- Managed to complete free version of Freeletics Week 1. (50 burpees, squats and sit ups; Methis and Aphrodite)Got extreme DOMS for 3 days after Aphrodite, but now I'm able to do the star version of Freeletics's burpee.- Did my first 5k run trainingI ran1.5 km nonstop on my first try. I never ran that long and that far ever before in my life. Minus points:- I gained 2 kg. LOL. After all the diet and exercises, this is extremely discouraging. To do:- Avoid crackers at lunch.- Prepare healthy breakfast.
  10. As usual, forgive me for my habit of creating lame thread titles. I've been evaluating my last challenge, and here's the result: 1. I want to have a quicker workout regimen because I'm getting busy. My usual Blogilates (pilates/bodyweight/HIIT) routine took around 50 minutes to complete 6x/week, since I'm going to get busy, I need to reduce my workout time. 2. I want to do workout with friends because I feel lonely. Anything. I don't care if it's running, pilates, swimming, tennis or whatever it is. I think I need a little change from my comfortable solo workout in my bedroom. Doing exercise

    Ahh I missed a week of posting my update! Summary of Week 5: had a double flu. Crazy. I can't exercise. Summary of Week 6: Still not allowed for light exercise. But I paid more attention to nutrition and sleep so I can heal faster. Result: I'm smaller by using my tight clothes as an indicator and I'm happy because I can wear more clothes now By tape measurements, I lost 1 - 2 cm on most of the parts of my body. By scale, I didn't lose weight. Well, I think I didn't completely fail this challenge, but I didn't get the success that I wanted. Even though I didn't drop this challenge, I s

    I can't post my weekly summary last week because I went out of town for training and then caught a cold due to lack of sleep.. I didn't pay much attention to what I eat and skipped exercise for a week and maybe more this week until I feel better. And the heartbreak situation clearly affected my healthy lifestyle because it totally poisoned my mind. I know I need a strong and positive mind in order to keep going. But the way he just vanished into thin air without any news and no replies for a week after we met, like I never existed, is like having a big memo "I am so ugly" on my forehead. And

    That's a good trick! Keeping myself busy will be a good way to escape from negative emotion. I find that getting out from my room and just go out with some friends or even by myself can keep those negative emotions away from me. Even it's just temporary, but at least it works. I just realized that my healthy lifestyle is very prone to my mood If I'm not feeling good at all, it will be hard for me to avoid emotional eating.. Well, I can, but it's really hard and forcing something too much can get me frustrated at the end. I'll try my best to minimize my emotional eating. --- Week 2 su

    It's a blog from a mat pilates instructor who creates free pilates videos to do at home, complete with free exercise calendar! It's very practical for me since I like doing indoor exercise alone haha And it really works for me so I keep doing it. You can see it here http://blogilates.com Yeah so glad to be back!! Thank you for the support Thank you Paradigm! Things are getting better now and hopefully it keeps getting better and better --- Week 1 summary! - Need to prepare more time for making healthy breakfast. - I did my first headstand exercise and able to get both of my
