One of the hardest things for me was reducing my meal intake, as mentioned before when I heard people skipping meals on 3aw station.
I started off skipping breakfast only – this is hard because it’s important meal but I just want to give something new a go that I have not done and most importantly learn about discipline. I have only went for one week to help me understand how important discipline and mental toughness is.
What I learned from my fasting is that I really suffer lol. Only drink tea and coffee when arrived at work, and follow by my morning tea meal.
What I have learned is “disciplined” and mental toughness. This means that whenever I think about wanting to eat sugar, dessert, a double whopper and just plain Mi Goreng noodles which I love.
I think back to my morning of fasting and said to myself “Bro!, you just went through all that in the morning so you can just pig out on junk food?” That’s when I stop in my tracks to consuming junk food because my goal was to loose my belly and if I consume these unhealthy food my goals will take longer to achieve.
After my one week of developing my mental toughness with my calories intake, I came out stronger then ever before. My second week of weight loss and moving forward became so simple. I was back to my normal three meals a day routine, not just two.
Everyone that has ever made a decision on getting into a better shape, weight loss and body building. We all know the term “cheat day”, where you can eat and pig out one day a week, right?
I have invented the oposite 🙂 it’s called “mental toughness day” lol. Why ruin all your hard work during the week so you can make your goal post further? If you are doing this once a week, that’s one week for seven weeks of cheat day where you pig out…
What I do is the oposite, it’s mental toughness day. Where I try my best to take in as less calories as possible but don’t over do it by starvation. It just means that you still fulfill all your hunger requirements but lesser calories! If that make sense to you haha. Do the mental toughness day for performance on achieving your weight loss.
No Alcohol – for me it’s very simple to achieve but might extremely be difficult for others. Why? I don’t see a point in drinking, I stop this two years back. It cost money, gives you headaches, poison and damage your internal organs. I pretty much eliminate alcohol from my body for the purpose of keeping my body healthy. I do have an occasional drink, who does not.
