I am still telling you that I have the best trainer in Kuala Lumpur. This exercise thing is addictive!!!
I am putting on weight and this is because my muscle mass is increasing but I am looking and feeling smaller and leaner. I have also learnt that doing exercise and even doing loads of it is one thing, but doing it RIGHT is amazing!!! I have never imagined to see such results in such a short time and this is because the best trainer in Kuala Lumpur knows exactly what he is doing and knows exactly what is right for the different types of bodies, metabolisms, bodily movements of each individual, personalities, attitudes and strengths and weaknesses.
I’ll be going on a bit about my road to fitness because I want it documented and I want to show you my success story. That’s how confident I am that this is going to work. It won’t take overnight and I’m eating more crap than usual but I still know it’s going to work.
Yesterday, I was feeling really blahhhhhh because I had only 2 hours sleep on Friday and barely 4 hours sleep on Saturday and 5 hours sleep on Sunday and then 9 hours sleep on Monday. I had a long lecture from the best trainer in Kuala Lumpur. Seriously, I should just call him the BTKL – sounds like a Subway sandwich.
He said that in order to get my body into good health, we’re not even talking great health yet (since my body is in real unhealthy shape, I’m a walking time bomb ready to have a heart attack), I NEED to have a balance of sufficient sleep, sufficient water, sufficient exercise and sufficient nutrition. 25% of each to balance it all out. Right now, I’m out of whack and I really cannot afford to be if I care about my health.
In the 30 meals that I eat, make 3 meals bad. Or rather, allow 3 meals to be bad. That’s 10%. OK. And in assessing my personality type, he said I needed to pre-plan my meals. That means knowing and deciding and planning what I will be eating rather than making impulsive decisions.
Yesterday, I was asked to squat with my hands up. This is one of the ways in which the best trainer in KL’s assesses me. My calves are a lot less tight now. Previously my heels would rise when I squatted, no more. Previously, I would bend forward very much, no more. Previously my butt stuck out, this is improving. So amazing to see progress so fast.
Plank – 1.5 minutes
Running up stairs – faster than condo lift 4 floors
30 minutes – 5km on treadmill, sprint-walk
Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.
Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.
She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.
A beautiful life without limits.
Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.
