It makes me smile to know that I’ve finally broken through the weight loss plateau I’ve experienced a few months ago. I have broken down the invisible wall!
I am again starting to lose weight although now I have toned down my exercises and focused on doing stuff in the kitchen. I don’t know if that change affected the plateau I was experiencing.
The reason why I toned down exercising is because I’ve been experiencing migraines lately probably due to my poor sleeping habits. I personally want to remedy that before I go back to exercising.
My body is looking for the sweat though and I can feel that I’m not at my optimum level. So exercise should still be the key ingredient and I’ll go back to that.
When I started this blog back in June of 2012 I was aiming to become a fitter me. The main reason why I decided to do this was because of a gout attack I suffered in April 2013. For those who haven’t experienced it before – good for you! For those who have – I feel your pain!
In June 2012 I missed calculated my weight. I thought I was 220 lbs (99.8kg). Good thing I quickly saw my error. I was actually at 247 lbs (112 kg). To counteract this error I made I decided to push myself even more. In July 2012 my right knee, which was already damaged because of my Tae Kwon Do days in high school, started to act up and made it almost impossible for me to do any exercises until November 2012. Then at the last month of the year I decided to give my knee a try and jogged around my block. I was happy to find out that my knee held up!!!
2013 started with me at 242 lbs (109.8 kg). I’m happy to report that I am now at 217.2 lbs (98.5 kg). That means I’ve lost around 24.8 lbs (11.2 kg) since January 2013.
It’s been over a month since my last post. I got off track there. The result is my weight loss slowed down. I need to get back on track but fortunately for me I didn’t totally stop. Over the past couple of weeks I have not been able to find time to do my running but I’ve continued moving – JUST MOVING AROUND.
One such activity is combining my interest in photography with exercise so I’ve been doing some photowalking in during weekends.
Plus I haven’t really let myself loose in the kitchen either. So those are going good for me.
I need to get this week done then next week I’ll be back on the road burning some fat.
Here are the pictures from my most recent photowalk at the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to maximise my trip there so I believe that place deserves another go around.
