When I grow up, I want to have Allan Wu's body. Is that guy fit or WHAT? You can see from this photo, even the zeros got thinner just standing behind him, frightened into skinniness.
This was at the 1 Million kg Challenge Launch event over the weekend at the Ngee Ann City forecourt. Under big white tents, people mingled and tried the various booths, and got free stuff (I heard much of the free stuff involved healthy food).
Miyagi and I wandered around the area, trying out the stations.
The first booth was obvious: Get ourselves signed up and weighed in at the machines. Miyagi entered his name and age and weight and all that stuff, and the machine killed itself.
I am kidding. The machine gave him his BMI and told him how many gazillion kilograms he had to lose before he hit "healthy".
I was there with him all the way, by his side… taunting him. But he was not fazed. He had the look of determination on his face, as you can see from this photo.
Next we checked out a cycling station, and a question and answer booth (got prizes to win one). The answer to this question is FALSE, you should NOT cut back on the amount of exercise you do, after you reach your ideal weight.
The TRX exercise station looked like a lot of fun. So we tried it out. I gave Miyagi "a hand".
As you can see, I was really giving my 110% when it was my turn.
Kidding aside, it has been a rather challenging start to my journey towards a healthier lifestyle. I had a wedding to attend over the weekend (yes the food was awesome) then a dinner at a friend's house that very same day. I consciously avoided the alcohol at the wedding (ok, I had one small glass of red wine but the rest was Chinese tea) and didn't even finish the whole wedding 10-course meal. And I didn't whack the cheese and crackers over dinner (I gave them to my wife).
I've also been getting more sleep. I am zonked before midnight and up by 7am, which is unheard of for me, as I am a night person. But new duties (sending Faith to school) meant an adjustment to my lifestyle. So I now have my meals at proper hours due to this change in timing. Not too bad. No more 11pm meals for me.
Also cut were my portions of rice and noodles. Those carbs can be hard to shed once they are inside. And I took my chicken rice today skinless (the chicken, not me).
Anyways, there is still time for YOU to sign up for the 1 Million kg Challenge, using my referral link: http://bit.ly/1fRoHsF
