Plateaus, oh how I hate them

Ok, here I am going to start talking about my plateau. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s PMS. I swear some time last month, I had the same ramblings about it and I am trying to psycho myself not to be overly paranoid about how puffy I look and how my mid section is less defined. It’s water retention, honey! Even the ring on my finger feels tight! Oh Lordy! How much water can we women actually retain???

However, having said that, I am pleased to say that my arms look a wee bit defined and popped. Looks good but it’s quite unbalanced cos my mid section is not at all ripped and my thighs are far from lean. Okay, my calves are pretty shapely but we all have the thunder thigh syndrome going on. Hate it! But it’s my body, accept it.

My stamina and endurance have also gone up. Thanks to HIITs. Yes, they can destroy us or make us fitter. The key is NOT to do too much of it. Assuming if I did a 10 min HIIT, I can actually do it 5 days a week. If I do a 20 min HIIT, I’ll do it 2-3 times a week. I am not just talking about sprints btw. Sprints I can only do it once a week. Before I used to do twice but it gets boring! Omg. Running on the track and going round it is NOT my type of workout. The music rocks but the weather is HOT. I’m in Singapore… On the bloody equator!

Anyhow… I recently got obsessed with tumeric powder. I’ve known about their benefits and stuff but finally I’ve decided to add them to my food rather than to take pills. I am already chugging down load of pills:

-CLA (Muscle pharm)
-Multi vitamin with joint complex (Controlled Labs)
-Beta Alanine ( Dr’s Best)
-CoQ enzyme (Dr’s Best)
-Krill Oil ( Prograde)
-Cortisol and estrogen support (Estracort)

So here’s my tumeric chicken-

Chicken breast or thigh
Tumeric powder, generous 2 tablespoons)
Coriander blended into paste 1 tbsp
Spicy chilli flakes
1 tbsp coconut oil

Mix it all up, marinate for an hour and pan fry!

Love it! Goes well with rice or some steamed veg!

Btw I did have my cheat day and I tell u I literally stuffed myself with pizza, cookies, ice cream, risotto, cupcake, brownies, pop corn and chips! I think I chowed down about 5000kcals! But, it’s kinda like a reward thing and to reprogram the leptin levels that are essential for fat loss.

Ok, that’s all for now. I hope this PMS ends soon before the bad-black week of the month. Time to put on my black shorts! And sorry for being crude!
