Ouch! That's so not funny, man...


You know it's time to go on a diet when even your boss playfully remarks on your size. Bah.

I was on medical leave at the start of February's working month, after having unwisely indulged two small slices of kum (aka mandarin orange) after lunch on Sunday. Upon return to work on Tuesday, my colleague told me that my boss had laughed upon receiving my SMS saying that I would be on MC due to gastric pains.

"You mean a chubby person like rinnah also can get gastric pains?" -_-"

That is so not funny man... Looks like I really have to work on my weight issues right away before I receive anymore untoward comments. Oh, but I withstood (and survived!) an onslaught of the aunties during CNY commenting that I've put on weight. Haiiiiii...

Thing is, how not to put on weight when I'm so near to food everyday? My department has this hidey-hole cupboard (yes, a whole cupboard!) we call our pantry where we hide all our junk food from the prying eyes of the world. Haha. That circumvents the rule that there should be strictly no food in the office. Well, they did say no food on display... they never said anything about not being able to store food in cupboards and drawers! Lawl. We (my colleagues and I) have this cute-sy ritual of eating selected foods at certain times of the day. Almost like government servants, we take quickie 5-min breaks to have "tea" at 11am. Then dessert after lunch. 3pm is "raisin time" when we nibble on raisins. 4pm is "chocolate time". After 4.30pm is "Mamee / Cheezel time". You say leh?

It's a tad frightening to note that certain clothes are beginning to feel a wee bit more snug than they should be. Not a good sign. *sigh* Maybe a bit more fleshly padding will help cushion the paintball shots when they happen. Hah. Yep, gotta stop making excuses and just hit the exercise trail.

Yes, you heard that right... rinnah is exercising! Bwahahaha.

I've decided that the best way to exercise is by having fun, so my first activity is paintball this Saturday. Not looking forward to the pain, but looking forward very much to having a ball of a time (excuse the pun). Lawl. Besides the paintball-ing activity, I've also resolved to join my colleagues and management in jogging in KLCC park every Friday evening. I've already gone for one round last week, and despite just doing brisk walking of two circuits of the jogging trail they have there, my feet were aching for 2 days after! Just goes to show how unfit I am.

So, here's hoping 2008 will bring a fitter rinnah!

it's important to distinguish between healthy and overweight. for healthy people, there's no need to be too particular about weight. :) there are sooo many more positive things in life to concentrate on, and be happy about than the weight. :D :D :D
