September arrived so fast last week and things are finally starting to slow down work wise and personal goals started to fade away.
I was a little bit disappointed with myself lately in weight loss department. I felt like I have been doing everything that I am supposed to do but I can't seem to get the result that I wanted.
Am I setting an unrealistic goal for myself?
I know that exercising alone cannot help you loose weight. It's all about calories and about the food we ate.
That is the most difficult part.Finding the right food to eat that feel natural and not complicated.
Lately I tried doing Insanity Max 30 by Shaun T of the Beachbody. It's an eight week program that you do for 30 min. per day for six days. I know that there's a diet program somewhere on there but I the diet seems not appropriate for Malaysian.
The workout was so intense for a 30 min program. Sweat was never a question after each workout. The abs workout was insane. I can't believed that after doing the program for seven weeks I didn't see any kilos dropping. It's just insane. Maybe at this age I should not concern too much about the scale but focus more on how I feel and how my clothes fit.
The only success that I can see is I can wear all my pre pregnancy workout and my wrist watch felt loose.
I am not sure what I will do after my eight week was up? Should I do the program again or should I move to another program? I am still not at my ideal weight which is 5 kg lighter than now.
Should I go on a no carbo diet? Should I cut sugar completely from my diet? Should I only eat natural food? Oh boy! This is definitely tough.
I think I probably will take a break from Insanity Max 30 for three weeks and resume the program again after that. I love doing Insanity Max 30, the only thing I missed was dumb bell. Doing a workout with only using your body is definitely hard especially when your body is so much heavier than the 16 pounds dumb bell.
Does anybody have this kind of problem? I think when you reach a certain age your body will try to hold on to your fat harder than when you are in your twenties.
I know I should be thankful that I have my health.
I know I should be thankful that I am alive.
I am so thankful for the life that I am living right now. I just missed my old self. The old me that can move around quickly without breathing harder, that can run and jump around without any problem.
I decided to used my August 2015 lists notebook for September 2015 lists. This time around I focus more on wash tape and doodling with a touch of project life cards. I am having so much fun making my lists in the book. I share them when I am finished with this month lists. In the mean time I will share my lists directly on my blog.
Alhamdulillah week thirty seven went by without any incident at work. Sadly there was an incident at Mecca , when a crane felt down at Masjidil Haram and more than 100 people died. That was scary.
HERE IS MY WEEK IN PHOTOS
DAY 250- Monday felt a little bit fun because I am wearing a new hijab from Neelofa brand. This pink hijab is so comfortable and I can wear it with any of my work clothes.
DAY 251- Making a blog post about what's on my kindle. Love reading ebook on my kindle app on my iPad mini.
DAY 252- Finally my Kikki K planner arrived today. There was a mixed up and I received the parcel two weeks late.
DAY 253- Tips and Tricks Microsoft Office 2013, Windows 10 and Microsoft 365 at work. Not bad if that wasn't the day they announced the new iPhone 6s Plus.
DAY 254- It's September 11, Friday and I was trying to eat as little rice as possible for lunch. Surprisingly I felt full.
DAY 255- The morning when I heard about the incident in Mecca. It was so sad. I was there last February and I can imagine what the place was like. I spend the whole morning praying for the safety of all Muslims. I also take a moment to print out my photos with my dusty install share printer.
DAY 256- On Sunday I decided to take my kids to Toysrus and let him choose which toys he wants.
These are my life in photos for week thirty six for 2015 . So many things happened and if I don't take the time to document them I might miss a lot. I still believe when you took the time to document the every day and the good things that happened in your life, you will be more grateful. Just saying.
Do you join Project 365 this year? If you do linked up in the comment, I would love to
