My new year resolution

Why bother having a new year resolution if we know that we will break it anyway… Resolution is a promise to our self and it will be easy to break it because there are no consequences what so ever. But  I strongly believe that new year resolution is still good for us, at least it will give a sense of direction where to go or what to do.

My resolution for this year are as follows:

  • Exercise four times a month minimum
  • Write article four times a month, minimum
  • Saving at least 20% from monthly salary

That is all my resolution this year…. will I break it..? probably yes, but to make it fun.. I will add consequences in this resolution.. if I fail two out of three above, in any given month.. I will treat a girl a nice dinner… :).

So it always win win situation… if I can do all the resolution in a month… its good for me.. if not… a girl will be lucky hopefully I will be lucky too. :).

So there are my resolutions.. what is yours…?

Are we over fed…?

I consider myself as part of the middle class group in Indonesia. I also consider myself as overweight group in this part of this country. I weight about 15 kgs more than ideal and I am not alone.. :).

The easy way to know you are overweight or not  you can check it out here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/health/tools/bmi_calculator/bmimetric_index.shtml using this tool, I am beyond overweight… I am obese :)

When I think again,  my diet is way out of proportion to be called a healthy diet. Let’s see what I eat yesterday:

  • Breakfast : Rice + two eggs + shredded meat (yes two eggs)
  • Lunch : Wendys Paket 2 ( two pieces chicken + Coke + Rice )
  • Dinner : Rice + Semur daging + some veggies
  • Afternoon break : Bakso (meat balls)
  • Night: Canned beverage

Now that is more than 2000 Cal I think, need to change the life style immediately otherwise I seriously shorten my life expetancy…

Cheers
