Day 2 – Taking More Fruits

If any of you wondering just what it is that I’m posting, it’s my Day 2 challenge breakfast and lunch. Since today I had a lot of house chores to do in the morning, I think it will feel energizing to have some smoothies to bring to work (so many “to” in a sentence). The one that I really love to make at the moment is the very berry smoothis (I made this nickname myself). Here’s a recipe for you to try one yourself:

1 ripe banana, cut to pieces (I just use my hand to do so)

1 handful of assorted berries (strawberry, raspberries, blueberries, acai berries)

1 tbsp of maple syrup

1 tbsp of chia seeds

a glug of water or coconut water, whichever do you prefer

To me this smoothie is quite feeling and was able to keep me calm until lunch break. Then I eat my lunch box which consist of cut watermelon, saute brocoli and egg sandwich toast.

I didn’t do that much of exercise though, but was able to do the morning walk for another 30mins.

When dinner time comes, I opt the homemade fried chicken with vegetable soup and white rice.

Day 1 – The Starting Point

IMG_2548

Good day all! This post is supposed to be uploaded yesterday, but because of my bad internet connection instead this will be up today. So I will pop two post as of today, one in the morning and the other at night.

Moving on, yesterday I thought I’ll start my day with a small bowl of weet-bix and milk with half a banana to keep me full until lunch time. I know I shouldn’t be taking cows milk and instead opt for the almond milk but unfortunately I don’t have any at the moment, so I just add a small amount of milk to make it a bit porridge consistency.

Before that however, I had already done my morning walks together with my mum. She’s very supportive of this, and I thought it’s sweet of her to wake up at 6AM and do the morning walks with me to give the support and courage. For my first day challenge, here’s what I did today:

  • 30 mins of walk in the morning
  • 30 squats in the evening (3 rep)
  • 30 seconds plank (2 rep)

For my lunch today, I still can’t get over the white rice and ate the chicken “tongseng” (some kind of soup) to go with it. For the drinks, I opt the tea. At around 3PM ate two coin of whole wheat cinnamon biscuit for snack. And on dinner time, I chose the chicken wrap.

When you put it down to a word like this, seems like I still ate a lot and some are not the healthiest stuff. So next stop I’ll pick better stuff. Also, since it’s day one the exercise I did was not that much. Better start checking on those youtube channel for some inspo.

Announcement: My 2 Weeks Challenge starts tomorrow!

Good day bloggers and readers! Gonna keep this short, but I must say this is going to be a bit different from my previous other posts, because I am doing a two weeks diet challenge for myself. Basically I am planning to expand our little family and hopefully get pregnant in the coming year. But my gynecologist which I consulted just recently mentioned that I need to shed a few kg, *like a LOT if you ask me*. Since health is also a major issue for me, I thought I might as well challenge myself with a two week healty-ish diet and do my best to shed those kilos.

I know that 2 weeks is quite a short period, but I need to boost my metabolism and hopefully be adjusted to the new diet and work it out until I reach the goal. So, to conclude starting tomorrow I will keep a daily log to update myself with the whole progress for the whole 2 weeks.

I hope this’ll work, so wish me luck!
