"It's not about the destination, it's about the journey. "

New small goal in life

My new goal in life right now to get back on track is to learn Chinese. That is my primary objective. However my smaller objectives which usually get pushed to the side are:

Getting fit

There was one point in my life where I was extremely fit, I could go for miles without stopping at a good fast pace and I could do this without struggling much. Especially so in the previous cross country run’s my school hosted. I usually came 3rd place, but you have to remember I was up against bigger guys in year 11. So the race was kind of unfair. But I had people in my class who I would say that were also quite fit. But they didn’t have the stamina. They may have been faster, but they would stop running after a certain period. I guess I had that determination back then to keep going. So I want my old self back and my aim is to go to the running truck, and do the following:

  • Run 4 times around the running truck in 30º degree weather. Though I am not using the weather as an excuse, but I could probably do a damn lot more if the weather in Taiwan was not so hot.
  • 10-20 press-ups per night.
  • 20 sit-ups in the day.
  • Generally not eat fatty foods.

Though I did sin today and I ate 5 pieces of pizza. When it comes to pizza I cannot hold myself. If it was McDonalds, KFC or some other fast food restaurant food, I would not have touched it. But pizza is one of my most favorite foods. Though if someone does bring back pizza I will not fall into temptation again. That is a guarantee. – So that is the last time I will be touching pizza.

Generally I’m going to eating less.

My current weight as it stands is 96 kg. I am overweight. Though you really can’t see it as my fat is spread around, but will admit I do have a little bit of a belly and horrible love handles which I would love to get rid off. Though when I look at pictures of myself, I actually look quite athletic. But when I take my shirt of that is where there is a disaster. You can see my fat for miles, lets just say.

Whatever the case, I’m hoping to lose all of it. Well of course not all of it, but most.

I am considered overweight for my height. I am 6’0″ and I have a BMI of 26.2. If I go jogging for half an hour a day I can burn 336.96 calories which is 2358.72 calories per week. Though once I become fit, I would like to aim for 1 hour of jogging per day. I really need to buy a stopwatch just to time myself and keep myself on track. Unfortunately I live in Taiwan and I do not know of any place to buy a stop watch. So I guess I’ll have to use a phone or something. Though a stopwatch would be nice.

  1. Just completed my goal for today early. I done 8 laps as opposed to the four I stated I would do and I did 20 sit ups. I did 20 pressups yesterday night and tonight all I have left is do is 20 pressups. I might go later today to do another 4 laps around.

I was absolutely sweating while I was running around and was very sweaty when I walked home. (Sexy I know) I drank a full bottle of water and some juice on the way back after my running. Then I had a cold shower which felt like myself being on fire and the cold water cooling me down. 😀
