It’s been one week since I decided to make a change about my body image. It’s been 5 days since I’m on the Atkins. So far, so good. Still standing, not woozy.
Yesterday I had wanted to go for a jog after work but it started drizzling for a bit. Felt damn sien, ‘cos I really wanted to see how my body could take it.
When I was in high school, I used to run long-distance for my house team. Not very long also lah, but I can’t really remember the exact distance now (it’s been more than 10 years). After that I gained a lot of weight, and did not walk much until 2 years ago. Twenty minutes a day for 3 or 4 months saw me losing a significant amount of weight.
Then I got a car, and the rest is history.
Anyway, I wanted to walk. I do walk a lot in shopping malls, but that type of walking could hardly make me break a sweat. Tiring, no doubt but frivolous.
So yesterday after dinner, I put on my long-neglected sports shoes and walked to Centrepoint.
Okay okay, it’s not really that far from my place, but it’s a start. I sweated a little, I felt good.
Also bought Baskin Robbins home. Haha not for me lah. In the words of someone slightly more (in)famous, tak teringin pun
But yesterday was also the damnest day EVAR. S-kay blogged about cupcakes, and there was link left by one of her readers to a cupcake baker in Singapore, Cupcake Momma. I went through her Flickr collection of cupcakes; almost wanted to buy a ticket to Singapore there and then.
The things we do to ourselves…
