Read this, you will be shock at what excuses people give for not working out!

Patient : The problem is that obesity runs in my family. Doctor : No, the problem is no one runs in your family.

 

The worst thing that anyone can blame is their genetic. No one is ever set for something. Some people think they are born fat or skinny and they are destine to live that way. This is normally the norm however, i would like to point out some of the fitness people in Singapore that will prove to you that you can make a difference! Shape your mind and your body follows.

Everyone who did a transformation has a story behind, that motivation comes from deep within them. Often people who didnt stick thru their plan failed to find the true meaning to what they are doing. It is the WHY factor and not the WHAT. We usually focus on What we are doing and not truly asking deep down giving us a deep reason why we should do it!

I workout today because i need to, is not as powerful as i workout today because it is going to keep me healthy and energize me for tomorrow! By tagging a reason to everything you do gives a meaning to it, going thru things without a reason is just like the recent ice bucket challenge where people just pour ice over and shout out to their friends just for the fun of it and throwing the real agenda behind it which is actually to call for more donation.

From today on, i hope you guys can find the reason why! Keep going and never give up!

Paleo Diet

As you can see in week 1-6 my muscle seems fuller and thicker as compare to the week 12 photo which is much drier and leaner. Which is what i am trying to achieve. Currently weighing 71kg with about 9% body fat.

Comparing to my previous bulking diet where i hit 3000 calories a day

Here is a comparison for my previous bulking diet. Where i actually eat like 3000 calories everyday and have a lot of carbohydrate for every meal, the photo below was taken when i am about 73kg, 14% body fat.

Bulking

Depending on individual, i prefer to look lean year round and i prefer the body now compared to previously where i hit 75kg. I feel much stronger now and the energy i feel more energetic. I don’t get restless during the day and my energy is more constant.

Fasting makes your body uses more fats instead of carbohydrates as energy!

Recently i just did a CSC 15km run fasted and the feeling was fantastic, no dip in energy no lack of energy during the run as well.

I have been trying to get more information on Fitness Related stuff, to me it is really on how to let our body use fats as energy. I find that my body is really adapting well with Paleo. So now i want to test if it is fasting that leans me or my diet. So i have decided to stop my intermittent fasting so i can up my calories intake.

  1. I am going to go for a 12 weeks full Paleo or you can call it the Primal Diet
  2. Primal or Paleo lifestyle to me is basically, no grains, no processed no high sugar food.
  3. I also want to maintain my carbohydrate level between 100 to 150grams a day.
  4. Limiting my carbohydrates intake to only postworkout or early in the morning if i am not working out on that day.
  5. My Goal for this 12 weeks is to hit 75kg at 8% body fat.

Everybody got different aim my goal is to be able to lift heavy, do long distance endurance and look aesthetic(super human)

I welcome any question or feedback. You can leave a comment or email me at heechaiong@gmail.com

CSC Run By the Bay 2013!

motivation
you can do it!

I would like to thank NutriFirst for sponsoring the CSC Run By the Bay. Special help from Doris and Yang from CSC for getting me the tag to run. Fresh air and great running group during the race made this a truly enjoyable one.

Met some great running – a lady who tried her best to follow up despite her gasping for air.

A 60 years old man who is running at a good pace

a petite young lady who i gave up chasing after the 12km mark! She was really quick; she can still have time to do a selfie while running.

Lastly there is this ang mo lady who I met during the last 2km, she told me she would catch up and over take me and she really did catch up in the end and we finished the race together.

Strong is no longer a word that only man can use.

Tape on with my Gasp and Vibram 🙂

Quality is not so bad, slightly stickier than RockTape so when you are trying to peel it off it hurts alitte more. Price is much cheaper but limited design. ($20 a roll)

Immediately after the race there is ice cold 100 plus and banana together with the medal given to you. No queue any way regardless is taking your bag. There is a red bull and milo station there as well. (free milo and red bull) Overall it is worth the trip and i would love to go again!

Despite having a bad ache on my legs due to legs training on a Thursday i am still able to clock a decent timing. Most probably it is due to the highly motivated group of runner who is around and my HIIT training! Next up will be aiming for my 42km standard chartered run! More Hiit to come!
