Wednesday Night Workout – When Nothing Goes To Plan

Level 3 Day 2

5 rounds for time = 5m 50
3 pull-ups
10 push-ups
16 squats

Supplementary Exercises:

Crunches: 25 X 3

Back Extensions: 25 X 3


Well the initial plan for today was to go for my first swim in the morning at the Tampines Swimming Complex after a long time of not doing so. Then I will head to the Bloodbank @ HSA to do my monthly platelets donation before going to school.

Then I had to cancel all that as I need to be in school at 9am for some practical training for my Final Year Project and with the 1.5hrs of journey in the bus and MRT, I had to cancel my swimming session and postpone my platelets donation.

And as it turned out, the heavens opened up just as I reached Boon Lay and that meant my outdoor practical session would be postponed to the afternoon. So there I was stuck in the library when the time spent could be used to donate my platelets.

Oh well.

My diet plan is not going according to plan too. I just can’t tamper my temptation to eat and I’m feeling like a pregnant woman (I look nearly the same with my bulging tummy). I’ve eaten so many fried chickens that I’m sure my arteries are clogged with their fatty acids. Not to mention the amount of rice I’ve consumed. I’m ashamed of myself. I need to search for the willpower to resist the desire to eat a lot, that I once had during Ramadhan. Maybe by starting with 5 spoonfuls of rice?


Come on Faisal!!!

For today’s workout, nothing special to report and am just glad I completed it.
