Previously, I mentioned something about creating the habit of writing towards a specific word count to ensure you consistently put in the work without being overwhelm. I did that today again and attempted to write two hundred words today. Not only did I write two hundred words, I actually wrote five hundred and eighty without being aware of it. Now my novel is another step closer to completion.
Other than writing, I spent my morning watching World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles. It is a 2011 science fiction film that I still love even after watching it for the sixth or seventh time. There are a few other war shows that I do re-watch from time to time because I enjoy them. Some examples are Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, Starship Troopers, and Band of Brothers. If Band of Brothers is on Netflix Singapore, I will definitely watch it again.
After watching that movie, I went out for my usual 3km run. The afternoon sun was pretty much covered by clouds and so it wasn’t that hot during the run. However, my body was pretty much complaining and was aching all over even during the run. This just show how unfit and unhealthy I am. With that, I also realize my tummy is getting fatter and fatter.
I’m thinking that I should probably get a cycling machine or a threadmill so that I can do cardio exercise at home instead of going out there to run and subject myself to air pollution. These days, I really can’t breathe in the outside air without suffering from some kind of throat inflammation. I really don’t know what the hell is wrong with me. And I have not gone to see the doctor about it.
On the topic of health, I’m thinking about going back to the diet I done during my younger days. It is a diet that is 65% protein/fats, 30% carbs and 5% fruits/vegetables. My recent experiment at home was that eating a meal in that ratio in the morning actually kept me going until like 4pm. I didn’t even feel hungry or the need to snack. It worked today too. I didn’t even feel hungry after going for a 3KM run.
I hope that with this kind of diet, I can lose weight since I would be eating lesser overall. And I will do that in earnest tomorrow. That means, I won’t be buying any more fruits after my lunch when I’m at work.
Come to think of it, I realize I actually feel hungry earlier if I eat fruits after lunch. I suspect it’s because the fibre is causing rapid stomach dumping in my case.
When I do need to eat fruits, I will eat them at home since my dad always will buy a bunch of oranges and apples every other day. I also supplement myself with 1000mg of Vitamin C everyday.
Oh, my colleagues and friends definitely will comment about my lack of fruits and fibre. Honestly, I don’t give a fuck. I’m eating according to what my body need and I don’t want to eat so many times a day like what I have been doing for the last one year and a half.
That’s all for now. Time to sleep.
