[Diet Update] Day 7 – Weigh In!

So how’d it go? The first week has gone well. None of the food was repulsive, in fact, it has been a bit of a surprise to find that the Jane Plan food is delicious. I’ve lost over 2kgs, which is precisely what I was looking for. OK, I have 24 to go (around 4st…

[Diet Update] Day 5 – Gnomic Nudity

Yesterday evening was the when I experienced “Gnomic Nudity“, otherwise known as my Gym Induction. Didn’t you do that a few days ago? Well, that was my PT’s gym, this is the gym in my building. I plan to see my PT at his gym and do my day-to-day exercise in my building’s gym. Hence my…
