I won’t lie. While I was able to make headway on my translation project, it’s not as much as I’d like. As such I’m going to have to fall back on what I usually do in these kinds of cases: small naps in between spurts of activity. It’s not cramming yet, but it’s as close as I’d allow myself to, which says a lot.
Incidentally despite the deadline of my project looming over my head, I was still able to go on my usual walk in Makati this afternoon, which was followed by a several circuits around the Ayala Triangle Gardens. I have to say, I have to stop chugging down one of those larger Pocari Sweat bottles before I do my rounds, as the feeling of all that liquid sloshing around in my belly isn’t very comfortable. I lasted only 4 Miku songs this time (Melt, World is Mine, Romeo And Cinderella, World’s End Umbrella), but not because I was out of breath, but more because I felt like my heels were burning. Oh, and also because I was having trouble keeping all that Pocari Sweat down.
After that, I made a quick detour to the Mercury Drug store over at Glorietta to have myself measured. The verdict? It looks like I lost about 4 kilos over the week, which I think is good since I’m still about ten kilos or so overweight. The rate I’m losing weight might seem very aggressive though, and it might make me rebound if I’m not careful, but at least it’s showing results.
I can’t really do anything about the rice in my diet, but at least I can limit it to about one to two cups a day, and even then just take about two meals a day (or at least, enough for about 1500 calories). I’m still iffy about increasing my exercise rate to thirty minutes a day instead of every other day, but I’m willing to try anything to get rid of all that dead weight.
Speaking of which, it’s Saturday again tomorrow. Aside from it being the return to class, it’s also my cheat day, at least with regards to my dieting. Let me tell you, I’ve been craving for doughnuts all week, and it’s about time I treat myself to some. My exercise regimen will remain though, but I’m a little concerned that all those crunches I’ve been doing may make me cramp up whenever I bend over or something.
Anyway, that’s it for tonight. Off to bed so I can wake up early and panic over my translation project again.
