Saturday, 2nd August 2014 - 1Mont Kiara
Was ‘this’ close to attending the bodycombat class in The Curve until I saw the 1Mont Kiara timetable.
Renee and Special Guest.
Come on, that’s not an option. And thank god I made the right decision.
Different instructors give you different perspective in the workout and I love exploring those. You really learn something new everyday. At least for a beginner like me, every track IS something new to me.Well, except for BC60. Throughout that 3 weeks of release, I’ve been doing that everyday, so, an average of 20 times?Many members always complain about the repetition of the new releases.Hey, come on, in piano, ballet or any other hobbies under a standard board of examination, we repeat the exercises for the whole year.3 weeks? Come on, seriously. I personally didn’t have enough time to perfect the moves and boost my stamina to push 100% from beginning till the final track.
Yah, that’s also the other reason I was glad I went to the 1MK class. BC60.I love BC60.
Renee pointed out that I need to clench both my fists during hooks. I didn’t know that.Or maybe it’s me and my habit of keeping the fingers loose during almost anything.You know in Muay Thai, you only clench whatever that is striking and keep everything else loose so that the force focuses on the strike alone.Thank you for showing me the right way they do it in Bodycombat.
Dear all instructors,I’m very used to learning and applying the correct pose and technique and knowing that I’m doing this the right way.Please correct me whenever, wherever. There’s so much I want to learn.
Was suppose to go home and carry on with household chores.That’s why I turned down a movie outing.Mana tau, when I was cooling down at the lounge area, my left arm started to shake, then my left leg, then my right leg.Holy crap, killer workout!I know for sure, if I squat down to scrub the toilet, I MIGHT not be able to get back up.So, called my friends. Went for ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’. OMG, Groot.

Finally made up my mind to get gloves.And apparently at this very moment, would like to have a pair of Venum pants as well. I thought I somehow should at least own one.Now is the matter of size, I have no idea how or where should I try for size.
And I just realized. I actually don’t want to be an instructor. I just want to be a shadow. Is that even possible? I mean, is that even an option?I guess I just like to perform. I don’t need the limelight. You know just to be the one on stage that inspires others…… discreetly.
A reason I wanted to play that role is because I felt good when I inspired some of my colleagues to sign up for the gym and others to workout on their own during the weekends.
Didn’t even need to say anything. It all just happened when they saw me losing weight and the lifestyle I’m currently practising.
So, anyhow, I’m still giving myself that 1 year target to see how far I can take my fitness level to and to see if I should proceed from there.
*latest update*Managed to do a sequence of 6 push-ups on toes yesterday (5th August 2014) at Key’s class which was already energy-draining in the earlier tracks including Cheng and her countless number of knee-jumps (God, the energy in that woman *sweats*).#happy

Hashtag Eatclean

I no longer have McDonald’s at least 3 times a week.
In fact, I admit I did give in (come on, they keep coming up with new flavours in conjunction with this or in conjunction with that…) once in a while but if I have not mistaken it has stretched to roughly once a month.

Huge step I must say.

Trying to incorporate fruits into my diet.
Currently (6th August 2014), trying to replace my dinner with just fruits alone.
The mango is kinda abit too acidic for me as I’m down with a little sore throat today.

The plan ahead after Hari Raya break.Well, actually it wasn’t really a break for me.

Note to self

Control food intake.

Crap, I didn’t update this for more than a week.
I have been reaching home late recently due to “socializing”. Finally, I have friends at the gym. So, dinner outings after classes usually.
But seriously, I need to control the food intake.

However, I am so grateful that finally I get to hang out with people who have decent conversations during meals rather than swiping on their phones.
You can NOT find groups like these anymore.

And I am now more adventurous.
Today, Saturday, 26th July 2014, I actually travelled out to The Curve for Bodycombat.
Next will be Paradigm Mall or Empire Subang.

This whole week was a disaster for me.
Recurring injuries, left calf and ankle as usual. I can’t workout much.
And the safety issue with the location of the MBF branch is causing me to stop going there.
Now I am still trying to map-out my timetable.

Therefore, good week for social life but bad week for fitness level.
Mr Cardio and Miss Stamina merajuk d.
Gonna start building them up again today.

Was introduced to Peggy’s class.
Awesomeness.
Going again later because I didn’t really get to do much on Thursday.
Due to the traffic jam, I reached home late and had to fly all the way to gym.
Too tired when I was there.
*sweats*

Tuesday, 15th July 2014 - Fitness First 1Mont Kiara
These are too heavy for classes.Need those gloves that originally, seriously, I thought is just for show.
Was just talking to other members at the gym, apparently those gloves do have a slight weight to it and I think I need that.Yah, I finally broke the ice and started chatting with others.
Holy crap, today was a great class.Too bad as long as I have that day job, this is a class I can’t join.
I felt another strain in my left calf.
But on another note, my Suparman push-ups improved.Managed to keep my body straight, not the kneeling position which was the only option I had last week, Weak arms.
Couldn’t attend any classes tomorrow night. Family dinner.Need to draft an upper body workout to do at home.My triceps are not responding to anything I do.The core and abs area however, is such a busybody, every single thing I do, it gets affected. A good thing though, one less thing to work on.

Once again I tried my luck with the traffic.
Not good today but however, I wasn’t THAT late.

It was a replacement instructor. And she brought her father along.
How cute!
I can never find anyone to go to the gym with me.
Family members, nope.
Friends, nope.
Colleagues, nope.

I mean, apart from really working out, it gets kinda boring after a while, especially recently when I spend quite alot of my time at the gym.
Seriously June, beat the introvert in you and start mingling around.

Holy crap damn shyt cardio tonight.
Therefore, I made the right choice of traveling all the way back here for this class.

But it’s kinda tedious going through traffic.
I guess I’m gonna resume to MBF for my Monday workouts.
It’s fine to settle for Bodyattack.

So, public holiday tomorrow.
Apparently Fitness First didn’t get the memo soon enough, so, timetable as usual.
Gonna do some shopping at Mutiara Damansara then head for the 5.35pm class at 1MK.
Why does The Curve punya muay thai class clashes with the 1MK bc?

Sunday, 13th July 2014 - Fitness First 1Mont KiaraFitness Level - Pffffft
I thought giving it an extra few hours of sleep could rejuvenate whatever it is I need rejuvenating.
Bullcrap. I felt like dozing off the whole freaking day. Lengzai pun tak larat wanna kap d.
I started rating my workouts with the amount of gatorade I need. Just for fun, hello. Nothing beats BC60. 1 gatorade and half a bottle of water. Throughout last week, every BC class was just half a bottle of gatorade. Today, not bad, a whole bottle. I need to up my workout level. Yes, away with the drowsiness and to push myself more.
That controlled-breathing method Renee mentioned is amazing. Have alot to work on when it comes to cardio.
Ok. Bodyjam tomorrow morning and to try my luck with the traffic again in the evening for 1Mont Kiara bc.

Superman push-ups.

Another new thing for me.
This. I cannot….. yet.
Practice. Practice. Practice.

Tried the support wrap for my left leg yesterday.
It did help ease the strain but maybe I had it on a little too tight. Lacking in energy when there was any kind of shuffling involved.

Hah, why didn’t I see that coming?
I was listening to MCR in the office the whole morning and at night………

"Na na na na na na na….."

Tuesday, 8th July 2014 - Fitness First Avenue K

Haircut. Finally found time and a hair saloon not fully-booked.

But this is just for show.
Ganggu betul during Bodycombat.
Either need middle parting or I just have to pin it up.

Ok, it is officially my rest day tomorrow.
My legs are so bruised from overworking, I know I need a break.
Like seriously, both my lower legs are covered in blue-blacks. And I am starting to feel the strain.
Apa macam ni?

I guess I will just do upper body workout especially after being introduced to something new these 2 days.
Scorpion push-ups.
Das ist sehr Interessant!

Hope I am genki enough for Thursday evening.
I will just go hair-dryer and hair products shopping tomorrow.
