Hello hello!

It has been a while! If you are reading this, thank you thank you thank you for still taking the time to give this lil blogger a chance. Don’t let me bore you with why I was missing in action, I am just glad to be back here and having a platform to write again.

So excited I don’t even know where to start! What have I been up to…

Last thing I ate:
Home made mini apple muffin, an oldie but a goodie recipe┬áthat I shared with you guys back in 2012! Speaking of which, clearly I am not on my wheat free diet anymore. I did use whole wheat to bake it though…

Last thing I watched:
The Voice ! Used to not get what the hype is all about, b ut now I am a fan! My favourite part is the relationship between the coaches – love love love them. Oh and whenever they steal.

Last time I ran:
Happy to share that it was only yesterday. And in about an hour, I am off to my gym for EPOC workout. I will be posting more about this EPOC workout shortly so stay tune !!

Last time I cooked:
Do salad and grilled cheese count as cooking? They were damn good though, I made pesto grilled cheese yesterday, and kale salad with honey balsamic vinaigrette yesterday – with boiled egg for extra protein!

My one last news:

Hell to the yes, I am wedding dress shopping! So please expect a lot of wedding posts in the next few months!

So good to be back, and looking forward to reconnecting with you all.



Mapping my run.

14 07 2012

The weather has been beautiful lately, and this means more outdoor activities in this young, health conscious city that I live in. Anything from beach volleyball to paddle boating, to kayaking and ultimate frisbee, you name it, I see them all as I run down my usual route.

Typically, I enjoy running outside but most of the time I’m running blindly without keeping track of my progress. The only thing I know about it is that I run the same distance, but what that distance is, or for how long I run, I honestly have no idea. That is, until few days ago when my friend introduced me to this super cool website, mapmyrun.com

Basically, it’s every runner’s best friend. You can map your route, keep track of how you do over time, and log your food! My favourite part is obviously the mapping my route part because I don’t run on a standard track, or in a straight line, so it’s not like I can use Google map to calculate the distance. Through this website, I have figured out that my usual route is just under 7km with inclination of about 2.5m! Now if only I can remember to time myself, then I can seriously start seeing progress..

The website is not just for serious runners either (because clearly I’m not!), you can also keep track of anything from shopping route to dog walking route, hell, even the short walk from your dorm room to your class! It just helps you feel like you are accomplishing something when you see it in numbers, instead of “oh ya, I went for a 10 mins walk”. Happy Running everyone!

What is the secret to your work out? Do share!
