Of weight loss and running ....

Recently, some of my friends and I have been running consistently in order to reduce our weight and improve our fitness. Although I went to the gym very often, I didn't really ran a lot until of late where I usually go for at least a 5KM run or more, 5 days a week. My group of friends also did the same thing and together with some dieting, we noticed our weight gradually reduced. I have lost around 5kg over the past few months. Of course, it took some 'pains' where we have to be discipline by regularly doing our cardio and reduce our carbo intake. One of my friend even tried the 'My fitness Pal' app and it seems works for him. As for me, I am too lazy to key in all my food intake into the app. 

Anyway, the good thing is we seems addicted to running and that's how the idea of joining an entry level marathon comes to mind for some of us. It seems the initial plan and goal has lead to a new hobby...LOL. And, I guess we won't stop after this marathon. :)

Btw, I had lunch with my girl-friend (got hyphen :P) today after been not seeing her for almost a year. It was great to try on Fish and Co. set meals. It came with a soup, main course, drink and an ice-cream. All this cost S$15.90. I think it's affordable.

Mushroom soup

My seafood platter

She had a fish ..err.. some sort of set.

And, a cup of ice-cream
I will be sleeping early on Saturday to wake up early for the run. Wish me good luck. :)

    1. TM - I think it boils down to interest and motivations. If you don't like what you do or not motivated to do it, then it's really difficult.
