Healthy Wealthy (Part 2) : Making New Friends

Hullo, welcome back!
Today is the coolest day I ever had since the past 1 year.
I had experienced a full-pack healthy activities through out the day.

6.30am I was in Tasik Perdana (Lake Garden) climbing 142 steps on a staircase to Memorial Tun Abd Razak, I did it 2 times.

7.00am - 8.00am ,I successfully did simple Tai Chi routine conducted the Tai Chi group lead by Uncle Khoo. There I met my new friend, Kak Aisyah who helps me much to improve my Tai Chi steps. (she bears same name like mine)

This Lenglui name is Jeanne, my nutrition instructor from Healthy Wealthy Nutrition Club. I first met her 1 week ago during my competitors survey at Jusco Metroprima. Next to her is a beautiful lady , Salmah who shares a lot about health stories, benefits and concerns.

3 steps: 1st for cleansing ( I can taste a lime/citrus zest in that clear cleansing portion) H . Aloe cleansing drink, 2ndly for energy... it's a H. Concentrate Tea. 3rd for nutrition , taste like vanilla-banana milkshakes

I love the curtain with Money-Come & Luck-Calling Cats motiffs.

This is appeals to me. Pantang aku orang sebut 'tak tahu'!

Kit, also an instructor there. He is young, rich and famous!

My new 1 Malaysia friends.

Kak Ai-Lin, my new friend who suffered from 'sakit lutut' 8 months ago.

This poster is very meaningful and so true. Don't you believe that in my house I don't have even single grains of sugar since last August 2011? Only purchased bila ada guest datang. (Hotel sachet type)

Healthy Wealthy (Part 1)

I'm going to join this eating club. It's a restaurant? .... more to an eating place where the nutrition is served based on Herbalife products. I am going to visit the restaurant for the first time this Saturday at 9.00am.
The nutrition pack priced from RM13.00

It's a place where people like me use to hang-up and sharing the stories.
Well, I'll find up more.. later when I physically do my first visit there.

And, this article is purposely published to meet requirement of Cari Forum members.
They enquire about Kinohimitsu Kilos Cut.

It's a good investment, RM129 as substitute to heavy- unhealthy lunch or dinner.
You no need to consume nasik lemak every breakfast that cost you averagely RM2.50 per morning. Or Roti Canai and teh tarik which total up = RM1.20 + RM1.00 = RM2.20 averagely.
24 Working days x RM2.50 = almost RM60. Plus your lunch expenditure RM4 X 24 working days = RM96. Busuk-busuk monthly food expenditure at workplace = RM60+RM96 = RM156

Some people fear that if they are not seeing a reduction of kilos on the scale, then weight loss is not happening. In all actuality, it’s quite the opposite. While you may not be seeing a decrease in kilos, you are likely seeing an increase in muscle, leading to a decrease in overall inches

Rather than focusing on the numbers revealed on the scale, turn your attention to the reduction in inches lost to measure your weight loss progress.

Muscle vs. Fat

The key here is to understand the difference in muscle and fat. Because a pound is a pound no matter what you are measuring, one pound of fat is equal to one pound of fat. The common saying, “muscle weighs more than fat, ” is wrong. A pound is a pound, no matter what you measure. However, fat and muscle are composed of different substances, look different, have differing effects on the body and take up varying amounts of space in the body. Fat takes up more space in the body and has a lumpy appearance.

Muscle, on the other hand, is lean and smooth. For visual purposes, picture a lean steak equal to the size of a regulation sized baseball. Now, picture approximately three times that much jello in a bowl. If these ingredients were placed in your body, would you prefer the lean, compact muscle or the jiggling bowl of jello? A person weighing 150 pounds, with 14% body fat will look much leaner than a person who weighs 120 pounds with 35% body fat.

This fat can be of two types namely visceral fat and subcutaneous fat.
Subcutaneous fat is what is under our skin but visceral fat is what makes our central part of the body look fat. This fat is present around our internal organs and is also called intra abdominal fat.

All fat is not created equal. Unsightly as it is, subcutaneous fat, the fat right under the skin, is not as dangerous to overall health as visceral fat, the fat deep in the belly surrounding vital organs.

Visceral fat is more difficult to lose as compared to subcutaneous fat. People with excess of this kind of fat are more prone to diabetes, heart problems and other health risks. The more of this fat you have, the more close you are to getting many diseases. To lose visceral fat fast, one needs to get the body back in shape through exercises and diet.

See, the fat reduction chronology

Colon cleanse. Is the key to wellness.

Rejuvenate and Refresh : Lake Garden, Kuala Lumpur

Azan Subuh berkumandang seawal jam 5.37 pagi.
Aku terkebil-kebil.

Malam tadi aku telan 2 slices Salisbury Steak brand Marina. Sedap wooo.. My favourite ni, 85% daging lembu, bukan lemak taw, 1 kotak = 4 slices. Why I really craved fatty food? You know this kind food can be comforting. Salisbury Steak ni kalo nak tahu, healthier sikitlah dari daging-daging burger biasa. So, dah dinner rasa regret pulak, macamana aku nak dispose calorie tu.

6.00am, aku basuh muka ala-kadar, tak mandi pun, aku cari 4 quarter yoga pants ku, long sleeve T-Shirt, sneakers, sports towels. Start enjin keta, 6.18am dah sampai The Lake Garden aka Taman Tasik Perdana. Ada dalam 12 bijik keta parking by roadside.

Last week aku sampai nak pengsan lari bawak 2 kilo pasir, tapi tu aku lari dalam area Kampung Sg Penchala jer, tak adventure lansung. This week nak wat lagi.

Aku jalan-jalan moderate speed... how to start? jog-jog-jog...cheeewah.
Dah lari 2 kali round tasik seawal pukul 6.30pagi-6.50pagi. Hairan betul, lansung tak berpeluh.
Something wrong with me kew?

*Dinosaur Park Playground, Taman Tasik Perdana,
Free Tai Chi Class every day 7.00am - 8.15am*

Aku fed-up, lalu depan auntie-auntie yang tunggu free Gi Qong ker Tai Chi class kat depan playground tu, aku tinggalkan 2kilo kampit pasir atas bangku kat Playground Dinosaur Park. Aku nak lari panjat bukit pulak. Haaa... kali ni memang pancit. Kardio. Semput aku. My heart beated faster. Oksigen! Oksigen!
Mula-mula boleh la lari, last2 gear satu la aku. 2nd round naik bukit, ada satu couple Mat Saleh about early 50's aged. Siap boleh pintas aku naik bukit. Nhuh... tercabar aku. Memang aku tak fit. So, by 7.30am, aku dah buat 5 round panjat bukit. Okay la tu, sweating. "ANY EXERCISE IS BETTER THAN NO EXERCISE"

* Kalo malas naik bukit pakai trail atau track, boleh pilih this option, ulang alik naik tangga turun tangga. Ni staircase ke Memorial Tun Abdul Razak. Aku rasa ada 240 anak tangga. Ulang sampai 20 kali, comfirm jadik*
Dari pukul 6.30am- 7.30am aku jumpa 3 orang aja Malay out of 30 Chinese yang exercising kat situ.

My friends ada invited I register Celebrity Fitness kat my Head Office. RM129 per month. Discount for Tesco's staff only RM110 monthly. From my survey, 'where got time'? ramai yang register join the membership, tapi tak utilised pun. Just pergi sauna 15 minutes per week. Pity.
On the other side, Olivia Munn proves that ' YOU DON'T NEED A TRAINER, A GYM, OR EVEN A SNEAKERS TO STAY FIT'.

Okay, now... aku pegi kat playground tempat ah so -ah so perform Tai Chi.
Ada satu Malay woman about 40+++ ages.
"Kak, lambat lagi ker nak abis? Saya nak join ni"
Akak tu reply ada dalam 20 minutes lagi.

Aku pun join la step-step Tai Chi tu. Semua kiraan sampai 15. Then close, move to next move kira sampai 15 lagi. Aku follow la sampai 10 minutes, aku stop, duk atas bench tengah2 uncle-uncle & auntie-auntie perform tai chi.

* masa ni tak ramai lagi join, after 30 minutes, suddenly toleh belakang ramai lah joiners *

Then datang sorang old man. "Kenapa you tak continue?"
" Kaki I sakit, baru lepas accident, I jatuh tangga 7 tingkat tak bole buat movement ni"

Then aku chat-chat dengan that old man, Uncle Khoo kira macam leader practitioners group tu la. Dia nak acupuncture kan kaki aku kalo aku agree, & buang darah beku.

8.30am aku jog ke kereta. Drive balik umah dengan sport towel atas kepala aku singgah beli paper, absolutely say no-no to nasik lemak & roti canai walau I was craving for lemak-lemak that time. Hancur programme aku nanti. Discipline kena ada.

Lepas wat self spa kat umah, aku siap2, pakai my best attire pergi Mid Valley Mega Mall, masuk Carrefour, masuk Metrojaya, masuk Jusco. Survey, took photos, detail one, my boss wants to see all the competitors' price architecture, display way and bla-bla-bla.

12.30pm aku dah sampai umah. Lapar. Masak 3 slices dory fish with herbs. Aku mentekedarah.
Pastu aku rasa sooo sleepy. I found myself really tired and cranky during the day. Aku layan tito. 5.30pm baru terbangun.
