Last Friday, I submitted my first food log to Eric Goh, my trainer at California Fitness.
He came back saying, “And why is your breakfast at 3 pm??”
Actually, 3 pm is considered early for me. I usually have “breakfast” between 4 pm and 8 pm, depending on how busy I am.
He also said:
- Cut down on carbs after 6:30 pm.
- Cut all fried food. (!!!!!!! x 100,000)
- Dinner should be lighter than breakfast.
- Take clear soupy food if you must eat at a crazy hour like after midnight.
All very noble aspirations for me to strive for. I have to constantly chant the mantras of my favourite sports brands.
IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!
JUST DO IT!
That kinda helps a bit… until someone walks past me with a box of steaming hot KFC an hour after I get off from an exhausting gym session and I’m starving.
But I am proud to announce that I haven’t eaten a single bit of fried food for two whole days now.
Not two seconds. Not two minutes. That’s TWO WHOLE DAYS. Thank you for the applause.
Eric attempts to convince me that being strapped to a machine resembling a torture rack and hanging by my arms like that is good for me.
By the way, the photos I’m showing today are of the same batch from my first session.
There’s some red tape involved in getting approval to take photos in the gym, so I won’t be able to do it too often.
Well, the plus point of having a personal trainer (even a sadistic one) is having someone show you the proper way to use an exercise equipment so you don’t hurt yourself or train your muscles the wrong way or something like that.
And even if you know how to train properly, a trainer will keep you from cheating.
Trying to cheat but failing because of evil trainer’s eagle eyes.
After two insane sessions, my body is still taking it well.
I’m still able to type, at least.
But if I try to do more than type, for instance if I try to make the bed, my arms will call 999 and report me for attempted murder.
Buying Tramadol in a regular pharmacy is problematic, especially if you don’t have a valid prescription. To save time and effort, I buy the tablets on https://ringandfitness.com/meds/tramadol/. I can place an order on the website in a couple of clicks and make an e-payment. It guarantees privacy, which is important for me. Besides, I like that the delivery takes a day or two.
Stretching after each muscle group workout is very important.
It gives you an excuse to escape doing more reps.
Just tell your trainer, “Wait, wait! I need to stretch some more!”
Before you know it, your hour will be up.
Then your trainer will dump you on an elliptical and make you climb-on-the-spot for 20 minutes maintaining an RPM of about 353,729, while he goes off to think up more evil things to inflict upon you for the next session.
Whee. I can’t wait.
I have invented a third mantra to help me get through the next two months:
I LOVE PAIN
