Weight Loss – ing

One of the better things that spanned from the Sammi/Andy reunite (apart from my being estactically happy for a whole week) is my exercise habits. It stemmed from me wanting to “release” that estactic energy so I began going to run downstairs while listening to their sweet sweet songs.

So far this running pattern has lasted for a week and I hope it can continue for at least a month or 2. But interestingly, this has also stemmed me desire to diet – I am running not because i am dietting/want to lose weight; but I am dieting/want to lose weight because I don’t want to “waste” the running.

Is that weird? Don’t worry, I have convinced myself that this the absolute truth; so I guess even if I do not make any goals (not that I have set myself any, I didn’t even know how much I weighed before I started..) then at least that i can feel better that the dieting was only to complement the running.

So the days of calorie counting has returned. However, it is not easy because I do love to go eat lunch with my colleagues. How to find low-cal and healthy food choices at different restaurants? For example, today we are going to Yum-Cha to “farewell” to Carrie, a tab manager who is visiting Asia to “train” us on tab services, and to “welcome” Christina, who is back for a while Japan recovers a bit from the catastrophic quake and nuclear leak situations. Hope she gets to stay for a while and not have to go back and make her family worry.

Anyhow, here is an article to remind myself: 飲茶低卡食品:

*update* so much for THAT resolution… I was in charge of ordering the dimsum and ordered too much. Being the responsible person that I am, I finished the leftovers. Good for the environment but bad for my fat… Doh!
