My fellow fitness junkie Adeline dropped a comment in my last entry that she was curious about my diet and workout routine. First and foremost I would like to confess that I am no saint and I'm far from disciplined when it comes to my diet. But my training regime is pretty okay i.e. regular and consistent workout days.
A typical week for me goes like this:
Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays: Training days
Breakfast: Ranges from scrambled eggs, baked beans and toast to mihun goreng with eggs sunny side up to tuna sandwiches.
I sip green tea all day
Lunch: Grilled chicken with mashed potatoes and loads of salad
I usually come home at about 6.30pm (if I manage to cabut from the office on the dot). I'll start lifting weights between 7.30pm and 8.00pm. My training typically lasts about 30 - 45 minutes. I take a protein shake after that. Have a rest for about 30 minutes then hit the shower, get dressed and go get myself dinner.
I don't really care that my dinner is very close to bed time as I know my body well. Eating close to bedtime doesn't make me bloated or fat or whatnot. In fact, I typically wake up with a growling stomach the next morning.
Oh... dinner is usually rice with chicken as lauk...
Yep, rice close to bedtime.
And I STILL find it hard to gain weight.
For non-training days, the diet is still the same but without the protein shake.
And yep, that's pretty much how my week is. Of course, if it's close to the time of the month my appetite would be through the roof and just last week I had nasi lemak for breakfast, nasi campur for lunch, maggi goreng at tea and lasagna for dinner.
See... I told you I'm no saint when it comes to my diet.
