A Change?

by - Thursday, January 07, 2016

I've always been interested in the whole healthy lifestyle thing. There was a time when I would workout 5 days a week at 10am during my break. Yes, 10am. I like to stick to a schedule. Breakfast by 8, workout by 10. Everyday. I always like having breakfast first before working out. Can't function without breakfast. Anyway, when school rolls around, I'd workout less or just stop working out. I'd always I just don't have the time but really, I was just lazy. I used to go out for jogs a lot. I used to lift (not-so-heavy) weights alot. I really enjoyed working out. I especially love doing squats and deadlifts!

Personally, I think working out is the easier bit. When I was 16, I used to eat the lauk my mom cooks but never with the rice. Just the lauk alone. Sometimes I would even eat cereal for dinner to avoid eating carbs. Yes, I am aware, cereal is full of sugar but I was naive at the time ok. Eating right is tough, especially when you have so many temptations out there! My biggest weakness is definitely chocolate. I am the biggest chocolate lover ever. My fav kind is definitely dark chocolate. Don't know what about it that's so yummy to me. Everyone I know doesn't like it because it's a tad bitter but it's so good! Another thing about why I think eating healthy is tough is because I can barely afford food that's actually good for you. Quinoa, chia seeds and almond milk are so expensive. I've always wanted to try quinoa and make chia pudding! I think the only change I've made and am still sticking to it is I've stopped consuming white bread. Not permanently though, I'd still have a bun every now and then, especially when I stop by a bakery. After consuming alternatives to white bread, I find myself not liking it anymore. Whenever I take a bite of it, I just feel grossed out in a way. And that is the story of how I got rid of my love for white bread hahaha

I think I rely on fruits and veggies the most for nutrients. If you know me, you'd know that I eat a crap ton of fruits and veggies. I love them! I could do with a lifetime supply of mangoes, cherries, grapes and avocados! Avocados are expensive here - about RM6 for one avocado. Anytime when there's a promotion, I'd stock up and make guac with it! I LOVE GUAC GUYS. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!

Ok I have no idea why I decided to blog about this or where this post is even going. I just felt like writing something today. It's currently December 28th but by the time you see this, it'll probably be 2016. So happy new year!!

Anyway, since I started college and uni, I've been slacking so much at keeping my health in check. I kinda wish I didn't stop doing what I did because now, I have to start over again. You know when you do a workout after a long, long time and you just feel like hell after? I don't quite know how to put it into words but.. when your body gets used to such activities, after awhile you learn to endure it. Like when you can last 3-5 minutes when doing a plank because you're getting better at it. But when you start exercising again and try to do a plank but can only last for 30 seconds because your muscles just forgot how to function... Ya that's the best way I can explain it. THAT SUCKS. I really need to get my butt moving again.

Best of luck, self!

  1. Hi there! :) Stumbled upon your blog somehow.

    I can TOTALLY relate to that plank bit!!! I used to do planks daily for like 3 mins, and then winter break came along so that meant goodbye to whatever healthy routine I had. Now I'm trying to get back on it again and it's just. SO. HARD.

    It's just good to know I'm not the only one going through this, haha. Anyway, all the best with everything!! Take care, Xx
