The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Losing Weight and Getting FitMarch 14, 2007
Today is White Day .. It is not a common “hari Putih” as you might have translated it. White Day is celebrated in Japan and Korea on March 14, one month after Valentine’s Day. On Valentine’s Day, women give gifts to men; on White Day, men who received chocolate on Valentine’s Day return the favor and give gifts to women. (this is copied from yahoo wikipedia hehe)
So today, one friend of mine Fye de Flower ( she’s very thoughtful and generous despite her appearance) has “balas” my valentine present (hehe ..) with a very wonderful book entitled “The Lazy Girl’s Guide to Losing Weight and Getting Fit” .. Even the title sounds fun .. I have yet to read the whole book, but have taken a peak of the introduction and yes, i has fallen in love with it! I believe i’ll be hooked up with the book for quite sometimes now ..
it’s NOT a diet book. One reader commented ” It’s hundred times better because it’s real and life changing ” .. i’m not sure about that, but i’ll keep u updated about how to actulally lose weight without dieting (n_n).. A.J Rochester ( the author ) wrote : “Well, let me tell you the first thing you need to know : diets don’t work. In fact, i believe tata dieting makes you fat. Every diet i ever went on made me fatter, unhappier and totally convinced i would never be a success”. And yes A.j, I couldn’t agree more.
I tried dieting on my own, but i tell you, it’s one of the hardest thing to do in the world. Firstly, because i live in Malaysia where people have breakfast with nasi goreng, nasi lemak or at least 3 kuihs (3 kuih singgit) .. They have nasi (again) and some lauk – pauk which consists of every nutrient in the nutricient category (even fat, especially FAT) . And they eat dinner after 8 pm .. they, the Malaysian, actually, include ME! and 2ndly, i don’t exercise regularly (can i just say i haven’t run or jog for at least 3 months now??) my idea of exercise is shopping, but that’s also a very hard things to do considering my small wages and expensive petrol price and all .. so, there, i don’t exercise .. 3rdly, ohhh .. i can give you a million excuses about why my plan of losing weight doesn’t work, but no, i don’t intend to. Right now, i want to read this book and will let u know if there’s ever any changes in my weight ( reduced, i mean) ..
so that’s about it .. for now ..
* Fye de Flower is a girl, and no, we are not Lesbian or whatever you call it .. * thanks Fye for the book 🙂 really love it ..
