Day 390

Super Monday night!! Hehehe. Am on leave again, so I got to do 3 classes again! Yay...!

Went for Clarissa's Body Jam class. Debated between this or Pump... and I decided to do this because my arms are usually killed even after BC's conditioning track, so I didn't wanna push my luck that Jason Y would not do a triceps track. The most I did was worked out the triceps on the triceps extension machine while waiting for Clarissa to start. Looking back, I even regret doing this, hahaha.

Anyway, the class was fullll of old songs... quite syiok to dance to although they were a bit toooo cardio. I am still recovering from the hen night last weekend! (Happy to say that there was no vomitting involved because I'm good and trying to cut alcohol out from my diet already. ;p So I didn't drink that much!)

Warm up : Sandcastle Disco (long time haven't done this song, totally forgot about it and was wondering whattttt track she was doing, hehehe)
1st performance : the One and Only performance... dang! havent' done this in ages!
2nd performance : the "Voodoo drop" performance track (think it's from Jam #45)
recovery : Blame It (my most hated recovery track at the moment)
3rd performance : Ring the Alarm / What Comes Around /Put Your Hands Up For Detroit performance tracks
Cool down : See You In My Nightmares (this song sucksssss)

After that was Body Combat with Jaime... replacing TT's class. Actually, the class quite energetic and power also.. but dunno why everyone so silent. Haih. Have to support a bit... so I buat bising as usual. After the class was over, SOMEONE said that I was so syiok sendiri wtf?? I think it's his first time seeing me in Combat? I'm so-called "syiok sendiri" EVERY WEEK ok. Scratch that, I'm SYIOK SENDIRI EVERY BC CLASS. Hahahahahhaa!!

Anyway, I don't remember ALL the tracks done, because some are really really old. O_O I only recognised a few. I was wondering whattttt warm-up track that was, macam tak pernah buat! :
Blow Your Whistle, Power of Love, California, So What, Here I Come (TRICEPS PUSH UP!!!!!) and Because of You.

SOMEONE also said that I suddenly smiled for no reason at the power track in BC. The honest-to-God truth is that suddenly some guys at the back started shouting towards the end and I felt happy and proud of them.. hahaha. Cos that means the onus not on me to start. They too contribute and "led" the way so to speak. So I smiled. I am such an innocent creature, kept getting dissed pulak for my innocent actions. Hmm...

Finally.... Jason Y's power Body Attack class ... fuuh. Can't remember life before going for BA after Combat. Hahaha. I'm glad that I have Attack in my life now. :D He did a lot of old tracks! I think he did the first 3 tracks from BA 57 (All Over The World, A to the B, Little Don), then did the "Tricky" track (I know it's not Tutti Fruitti cos I have done Tutti Fruitti before and that's not the name for this track!!). Continued with another 2 tracks from 57 - Beware of the Dog and Forever Young. Tian ah!! Beware of the Dog is the most torturous upper conditioning track! Wait, I think Get Shaky is worse, but this one is quite bad also. Sooooo many triceps. And I'm so weak! I am so pissed with myself. Towards the end, my arms totally gave way when I was doing the chest press and I my whole body crashed onto the mat wtf.

I don't get it? So much weight training and I still can't do track 5 properly? Haih, what else can I do but WORK EVEN HARDER!!!

For agility we did Mercy, which was a fun track. Forgot the intervals track, then it was Nowhere Fast for power. I Feel Free and Do It To It for conditioning and ended with It's All Coming Back To Me.

Very fun class lah! Yay... can't wait for BA class again. Hahaha... I'm loving it~~

Day 389

Couldn't make it for Wednesday or Thursday classes because of work. I told you that it's taking up all my time, gosh. -___- Had to work extra hard because Friday is a public holiday, so I had to clear up some stuff... lots of problem logs, etc. T____T Was so exhausted....!!! And then on Friday I couldn't even exercise the wholeeee day as planned because my sister's friends were planning something for her hen night, and asked me to go along "because I'm the sister" lol. Hahaha. Anyway, I didn't do enough for them la.. they were really gung ho and the true organisers. All I did was teman shopping (not really helpful also since I don't know where to buy the stuff they required) and then help to sew the sash. For the hen night itself (whereby I missed gym on Sat and Sun too.. T___T) I donated / sponsored my alcohol stash (including my brand new Moet). :B

Knowing that I would be missing from gym for so long, after the shopping trip to get my sister's hen night stuff, I did the class which I thought would burn the most calories... what other than Body Attack! Hehehe! Thankfully managed to make it for the class at Jaya 33... which is actually the only Body Attack class in TF that day. :D

Edmund did BA#64... very happening class that day. Lots of energy from everybody. Hehehe. Anyway, I missed doing Bridge Over Troubled Water, Don't Give Me Your Life and Something Good 08. Of course, always loved Crank Dat and All I Ever Wanted, by Jason Y does that quite often. :D

Woooh.. damn happy. After class, my friend asked me why I always say "Thank You" to the instructors at the end of the class. Do they know me? She asked. Erm... I think it's just polite to say thank you to the instructor lor. No doubt they are paid to do the job, but in school last time you also said thank you to your teacher after class right. They don't have to know me for me to thank them for teaching a great class, a class where you feel like you really enjoyed yourself. :) Anyway, that's just what I think lah. Feel free to disagreee...

Day 388

Weight training day... I think work @ the office is taking over my life... I keep going to the gym late (this time starting at 9pm) and work out til 1030pm. By the time I get home, dog tired... online til late.. then start the cycle again. Gosh.. this is horrible. Thing is, I kinda do enjoy my work, but I just wish that I wasn't so busy!

Today I increased some of my fave machines, trying to push harder .

Chest press : Now starts at 35kg, 32.5kg, 30kg. Struggled towards the end, but amazed self at being able to complete it
Vertical press : Maintained at 35kg, 27kg, 21kg (the machine has weird increments)
Fly : 28.5kg starting, but this was not really good. Will try again next week. Think was totally broken after the chest press
Abductor & adductor remains
Leg press now starts at 80kg

I'm still doing 100 single lunges a day. Really kills. Next weight training might increase to 150 single lunges. It comes in sets of 50, so that's why the next increment is so high.
Bicep curls & shoulders , increased to 4 sets instead of 3 sets. (Realised at this point that the Benny Benassi mix for California Dreamin' is EXCELLENT for lifting)

Did BA65 for lower body conditioning , core workout and cool down. Hehehe.

Day 387

Wah, today's classes were all awesomeeeee. Felt such a rush and sense of accomplishment after finished 3 back-to-back classes. :P

Started with Leonara's Body Jam class... haven't gone for her class since my Wisma Consplant days, but now she's back, yay. She did a lot of Latin tracks, I loike.
Warm up : dunno the name of the track... hahaha. Too old already?
1st performance : Hollywood meets Bollywood (the Church, Pump It performance track)
Recovery : Long Way To Go
2nd performance : Ran Kan Kan
Random track : Adrenalina (from Body Jam 31... zomg!)
Cool down : Lollipop

Cool... haven't done Adrenalina in a long while. But I think Jason Low used to do it... heheh. Usually I walk out a bit early from Jam to "pa wai" for Body Combat, but since it's Leonara's class, I stayed to the end. :P By the time I walked up, Jayson was just about to start Combat, cool, I am so on time. :P

Got a lot of funny things happened during the class, but don't know if I can write it hear or not since I kena forced into revealing my blog address to him. Anyway, I don't think he'll read it since erm... this is just a boring blog. Keke.
Warm up : Man in Motion
1st Track : [wasn't paying attention because at this point, a guy walked into the class that looked like my colleague! and this is a colleague that i don't like. and he was doing... quite badly. i was so excited i actually ask pauline to look (disturbed her in the middle of combat.. which is bad, i know! but i couldn't help it!). in the end it wasn't my colleague also.. just an ALMOST lookalike, hehe]
2nd track : don't know the name of the track, but 3 jabs to the front, 2 to the side (L-shape).. erm... I think you can say I was still blur at this point. :P
3rd track : You can't stop the beat.. nice! Long time haven't done
4th track : Cold As Ice
Recovery : Vogue
MT track : Ravers Paradise
Finale track : Back in the UK (hahahahahaha! I love this track, but Jayson didn't do the finger pointing ala Saturday Night Fever pose like Terence!)
Upper body conditioning : Dancefloor Anthem... gosh.. 3rd time in a row doing this for BC
Cool down : Think it's Use Somebody

Anyway, one part that is damn funny is when there's the 'downward punch' for Ravers Paradise, this Jayson actually allowed himself to be a "target" for me ler. It's a total shocking moment for me because no instructor ever lie on the floor to allow me to hit them before... hahaha! I didn't even know am I supposed to hit him or not, but I hit anyway la. Hahahaha! Gosh.. this is great.

Finally, it's Body Attack with Jason Y... and I convinced Pauline to continue going for the class even though she was saying that she's hungry, on fruit diet, no energy, etc. I said that after exercising, won't feel hungry already. And I said she can always do the option and if really cannot tahan, can walk out la. Nobody will "see u no up" (in other words: look down). So she gamely went, and I am proud to report, she stay the whole class. :) Good job!

And Body Attack was greattt.. so full of energy.. even though there's just 5-6 of us in the class. Wah... started with first 3 tracks from BA65 (Everywhere, That's Not My Name, Baby I'm on Fire), then Crank Dat, then had a pretty easy upper body conditioning track.. Thank God... cos I keluarkan all my tenaga for Dancefloor Anthem already. So it's amazing I didn't collapse on the mat here. Hahaha. Running track was All I Ever Wanted which is a damn good running track, one of my faves... and agility was You Can't Stop The Beat. Pauline turned to me and say, "Why both the Jasons do the same song wan?" So ngam...

8th track was I Believe (super inspiring song for an intervals track) and finally... don't know the name of the last power track, where FINALLY all the lunges we have been avoiding suddenly emerged. But ok la.. I have been practicing my lunges! Like Kevin G, he do 200 a day, I started at 100 a day... maybe will raise to 125, 150 and then only go up to 200. See how lah. My quads damn big already lah. T___T

And after class... Jason said some stuff to me that made me very ... T____T (emotional). But he's so nice... a lot of pple been very nice & inspiring & motivating to me lately. So I'm very T____T ... hahaha. Really hope I can make it.

Day 386

Weight training day... everything same as before... but some breakthroughs ...
a. can do shoulder press @ 40lb again! And properly, one full set, not like 5 and then kantoi
b. my chest press @ 32.5kg is quite steady ady... can go higher next week, sadly my abductor & adductor is stuck @ 45kg (Start) and 35kg (end)
c. my tricep extension can start at 27kg now!
d. my vertical chest press can start at 35kg now! Remember the time when I said I was stuck at 27kg and no way I can suddenly "jump" 8kg (cos machine is weird like that)? It's amazing what you can do with more and more weight training
e. my dunno what chest press machine which I was stuck at 22kg... now can go higher already. Wah.. feel so powerful. All these chest press.. good for pushing. :D
f. got one damn cute guy at the gym (nothing to do with breakthrough, just felt like saying it)

Saturday, November 21, 2009

Day 385

Two classes today. Gosh, I really sleep in like mad during the weekends. Think there's something wrong with me. When Ben sleeps too much, he attributes it to "thyroid problem". Maybe I have the same thing? Wtf?

Went for Body Jam which was Zarina's class. *sob*sob* Miss her so much, lol. Actually, I miss jam a lot a lot a lotttttt. I think I don't do enough Jam classes nowadays. My body isn't so flexible. The "body roll" thing... just when I thought I'm making headway with it... now it looks so robotic! :P The best part is that Zarina did some tracks that I was thinking we hadn't done in a while, haha. Namely Closer and Dance Wiv Me for warm up, then the Calle Ocho performance track, then Shake Up The Party / Loaded performance track (I know, all very Latin today!). Recovery... I forgot what it was, but then it was UFO performance track and Be My Baby Tonight for cool down.

Love it when there's lots of Latin tracks. Any excuse to shake booty. :P

After that was Hazrin's Body Attack class, but taught by Ryann... did the whole of BA 65. Quite a long time since I did BA 65 IN A CLASS (practice by self... got la, many times. :P) ... and I realise that I still like the whole release even though I keep saying I'm sick of it after training in it. No way... getting to know the nuances more and more... I still think it's an awesomeeee release!

Day 384

Went for Body Attack (Janet's class, with Sam TT). As promised, Janet did tracks from BA 48, with Sam teaching two tracks from BA 66. Mix of old and new!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Day 383

Finally, after two weeks of no dancing... went for Shirlyn's Body Jam class tonight! Wah, she did a lot of tough tracks. I didn't feel in the groove at all until the recovery.

Warm up :
Speed Up and Party People
1st performance : Pa Kum Pa! and Krazy
2nd performance : Shabang Shabang... the performance track from Jam 50. I only like the last song ... although Voice of Freedom ain't bad... but I *really* like Set It Off
Recovery : This Is How We Do It Round My Way... my absolute favorite-st recovery
Final performance : final performance from body jam 46... Love Shake It Up... sooooo much! :D
Cool down : Rockstar

**Starting to like the cool down track too even though I hate Nickelback! ACtually, I don't even hate them anymore.. started to like them after Gotta be Somebody. Feel like they have a sensitive side to them also. :P**

Tuesday, November 17, 2009

Day 382

Did weight training, again, everything same as before. The shoulder press machine was taken so I did the pulldowns. Think it was 26kg, 24kg, 21.5kg. Also did the same shoulder raises and bicep curls free weights set. Raymond told me not to do so many reps, and instead use heavier weights. Hmm.. the problem is that there wasn't anything heavier than 8lb weights available that day.

On Sunday I felt so tortured, but today everything was alright again! So one more weight training with these weights set, and then I'll increase the weights.

Did push ups on my toes too... good to see that I can still do it, though doing 32 in one minute (like for BA training) seems like a lifetime ago. Gosh...

Didn't do cardio because I was actually doing weight training, and was walking to the women's only workout area when Hazrin pulled me into doing cardio wave class. Hahaha. He has a whistle to teach cardio wave! Why so fierce!? Anyway, I only did the last 15 minutes of his class.

Monday, November 16, 2009

Day 381

Body Combat with Terence kinda was not so enjoyable today... blame it on the floor. Donno what happened... maybe it's a combination of the floor + my new shoes, I was slippin' and slidin' all over the place. Super not syiok to do decoys when you keep wondering if you're gonna wind up flat on your face the next.

So ... really, don't feel like writing about today's class... I wanna go all out! Instead, I couldn't... and I wound up not going for Attack for the same reason. Sigh... saved up all my energy for Monday night some more! Blehkz.

Sunday, November 15, 2009

Day 380

Weight training... same thing as what I did on Wednesday, but for some reason :
=> got very tired on the chest press... last week @ 30kg for the lowest reps was alright for me. This time, I was suffering! And I think I grimaced so much that I made a spectacle of myself. -__-
=> couldn't do the shoulder press @ 40lb anymore. So I stuck to 25lb. Hmm.. even then it was a bit of a struggle.

Other than that, everything else remained the same. I will continue at this weights for at least 2 weeks, before raising the bar. Was proud that I did 10 x 5 sets of bicep curls and 10 x 5 sets of shoulder raises with 8lb weights in each hand though. I know it's not much, but these are prob areas for me and anyway, I rarely do free weights. Was forced to do it only because the other machines are all taken up! Boo! :P

Ran on the threadmill.. 10 minutes only at 10kph... trying to get used to the speed before going for longer distance... hahaha. Anyway, I was bushed. :P How to catch up to Kevin like this? Feller runs for hours and does 100-200 lunges a day wtf.

Saturday, November 14, 2009

Day 379

Saturday, woke up sooooo late that the only thing I could go for was Body Attack in Hazrin's class.... Sam was team teaching. He did about the same tracks that I did on Tuesday, except that Sam did the running track and agility track from BA66. All in all, quite a fun class la... I really liked Tuesday's tracks anyway... :)

Thursday, November 12, 2009

Day 378

Went for Body Attack (Janet's class) today... wah, it was damn damn fun!! I think Janet is superb when she teaches those super old releases... love the way that she taught today also.. *admire admire* All the pre-cue and visual cues... just wow! Anyway, she did all the tracks from BA46... next week, will be doing BA48. I have NEVER done any tracks from BA 46 before! But it's really fun... especially like the 3rd track Brother Louie and the final power track No Limit. Damn power!

Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Day 377

Bad day at work... so much things to do.... planned to do weight training and then have an awesome Jam session for cardio. But wound up leaving work at about 9:30pm... so by the time I arrived at the gym, it was already 10:15pm.


I lost my chorey notes for BA 66.
Curse the feller to hell who took it and didn't return it to the gym lost and found.
I keep saying... whatever I have found in the gym throughout the years... I always gave to lost and found. Whether membership cards, WATCHES or lock & keys... but whatever I have lost, NEVER been returned to the gym.

I've only memorised about 75% of the stuff... and what pains me is that BA66 is the one with the bonus track, so I can't get the chorey from the video (cos it's not there). I know... the chorey is same as the interval track for "I Kissed a Girl", but it's slighttlllllyyy different. Well, I wouldn't know now would I. Gotta cari kawan to photostat the book again but it's soooo not the same as having the original ok. I feel like ordering another DVD set just to get the book back again. See?? This is what I get for being studious and reading & practicing chorey... just left the booklet around. I know la, I'm careless but I can't help being negative and thinking that if I was just a lazy bum, I would still have my chorey notes with me. :P

I can't stop thinking about it, because this is something so valuable and useful to me... and to any other ordinary member.... who found it... or THREW it away... gosh... it's like nothing to you... but for me it's a precious commodity... *whine whine whine*

Anyway... I'm watching the video to write down short chorey notes of my own til I get my own back. Grrr... *marah*

Weight training today :
- chest press 6,8,10 @ 30kg, 27.5kg, 25kg ** increased **
- incline press 6,6,6 @ 13.5kg (I know, that's soooo little compared to chest press, but the movement is different, and we all gotta start somewhere. After comfortable @ this weight, will increase for sure)
- fly @ 26kg, 24kg, 21.5kg ** increased **
- abductor & adductor (still @ 45kg,40kg,35kg)
- leg press (@ 70, 60, 50).. **increased **
- low row @ 35kg, 30kg, 25kg ** increased **
- back extensions @ 25kg, 22.5kg, 20kg (I got back problem... don't wanna stress it)
- some kinda back dunno what ... forgot the name (26kg, 24kg, 21.5kg) --- as above
- leg curl & leg extensions @ 35kg, 30kg, 25kg **increased **
- did 3 sets of triceps extensions (free weights, 8lb each hand) --- the usual triceps machines was taken up by great hulking guys... blehkz

For cardio + other conditioning, I did a few tracks from BA... hahaha.. so I can remember the chorey as well. Did BA66 tracks 1-5 (I must admit, it's very good punishment when you forget the chorey, cos then you'll feel the pain when you are doing endless number of squats when you could've been doing an easier movement) and then randomly did # 7 just cos I like the chorey for it. ;p Then jumped to "Right Round" to work the abs...

Was about 11:40pm when I finally finished everything... productive day... but still damn sad over the loss of my booklet. And when I asked the frontdesk if anyone found this thing.. she didn't even bother to check and just said no. !@#@#%#$^)$#%(#@$ Pretend to check also cannot ah. WTF!

Day 376

Since I missed out on my usual Attack + BC yesterday, I was determined to do it today! Of course, there was not just one club having Attack and BC back-to-back, so since I was on leave, I went to Hazrin's BA class in Taipan, and then drove over to Jaya33 for Jayson's BC class. Hehehe!

And I have to say... I'm damn happy la. :D Cos my stamina is back! Maybe because BA class was only 45 minutes long (when BA is 45 minutes long, they take away the running and agility track, go straight to the intervals & power track), so it was not as "killing" as it should be. But I'm really loving my new Nike shoes, cos after tokkok yesterday about how it will help me jump higher... I really feel that it helped me jump higher during the Tricky plyometrics track! :D

Track listing :
~ This is the world we live in
~ S.O.S
~ the "Crazy people everywhere" BA track. (Donno the name la... hehehe)
~ the "Tricky" track (Donno the remixed name)
~ don't know the name of the track for conditioning, but it sounds like remixed Ghostbusters and something else. Never done it before, but it's NICER to do this than other ones because it's chest push-ups all the way... hahahaha. That and some slight walk and the pointer.... erm, ok la. It's always the tricep push ups that kill me
~ Everytime We Touch for intervals
~ don't know the name of the last track, but the lyrics are very fai wan. I *think* it's Music Maestro
~ Get Down On it and then very short cool down (lack of time) - Breakaway, which I think is a very nice cool down!

For all the tracks I donno the name, wanted to ask Sir Hazrin for the names, but he was caught by another member, and I was rushing to J33, so next time only la!

In the end, was so shocked that I reached J33 45 minutes before BC class slated to start. Hmm... so I went shopping for stuff in the supermarket... hahaha. That's bad, I know I shoulda gone for a jog or whatever... but the stuff I got was necessities yo!

Saw my friend Siaw Peng at the gym... so we stood together... quite near the front but not in front because I know the people standing in front are the enthusiastically salah type. Er... not talking bad about them, just that I don't want to get injured. The one that I wanna talk about... I will save for the end of this post. Never have I felt such hatred for someone I don't know anything about. Really make me feel like my blood boiling, blood pressure, wanted to walk out of the class, etc etc.

Also, before the class started, Jayson actually asked me why I came for his class. T____T

Do instructors always chase people out of the class? Sigh... felt so teruk after that. Hahahaa... yeah right. Don't know what's his issue also, he said that he felt pressured if I'm in the class. -___-"

Track list for the class :
~ Dragostea Din Tei (aka the Numa numa hey song)
~ My Life Would Suck Without You
~ Beat It
~ Sweet heart
~ Jigga Jigga
~ How Far We've Come
~ **dunno the name of this "recovery" track which is not really recovery since it has sooooo many lunges and esquiva.... you can see people doing halfway and just stopping because they aren't used to the lunges **
~ Desolation Row for Muay Thai
~ Dunno the name of the last power track... but it's an old one
~ Dancefloor Anthem for conditioning
~ No One for cool down

So many tracks same as yday one! Why so fated to do these tracks twice in a row... -__-
And after the class, Jayson said he would do a special performance. But tak de pun. -___-

Now for my complaints....
Nothing to do with the instructors... hehehe. It's this guy at the class who is "famous" among some members already for being totally LACK of rhythm, LACK of concerned for other people in the class, LACK of technique and worse off, doesn't seem to know it. -____-

I was already quite pissed off because just because there is SOME space in front of me, doesn't mean you can squeeze in front. Because he squeezed in front ANYHOW when he is already LATE, I had to move back. When I cannot see my beautiful face in the mirror, it pisses me off. Some more, because he is standing in front of me and he has LACK OF RHYTHM, LACK OF TECHNIQUE AND LACK OF CONCERN for others, the possibility of him kicking me is higher. In fact, one of my friends did say that he had kicked her before, and didn't even apologise. -____-

I donno what to say la... if you come late for the class, why must u squeeze in to a place where others are standing. I didn't want to squeeze in into that place he deemed as "empty" because the two people standing near the front are also new comers (I think) so I tend to give them more space because if the timing is a bit off, someone would get kicked. But this guy is like .... so biadap. I really felt like scolding him.. and I never ticked off anyone at the gym before.

The WORSE WORSE WORST part about all this is ... at the end of the class, he gave me one bitchy look, as if to say, "Why you come so near to me".


By the way, I know for a fact that I'm not the only one pissed off with this guy. As mentioned before, he kicked my friend before. And in another separate case, one girl who I DONNO AT ALL AT THE GYM actually told me later, "the guy next to me... he doesn't know what he's doing at all." And someone else told me he like to show off the moves, like teaching new comers how to do the technique when he himself doesn't know. -_____-

When you inspire random strangers to talk bad about you... gah. Donno what to say.

*zips mouth*

Day 375

Guess what??? :D :D :D

I just came back from a 4D3N trip to Bangkok! :)
That's why I've been missing from the gym since Thursday... which pained me ok! I planned to work out til I collapsed on Thursday so that I could sleep all the way on the plane. In the end, I worked til 12am, so I did sleep all the way on the plane, but it was a different type of exhaustion - caused by too much CRT. :P In Bangkok, we WALKED allllll the time. Walking in Suan Lum night bazaar... walking in Chatuchak... walking in Siam Paragon... walking in MBK.... I guess it's a form of exercise, but it's not the type I like. :P Too much endurance training. Besides, the rest of the females on the trip had their own "slave" to carry their bags for them, but I had to be my own mule. T____T

So when I got back to Malaysia, I was very antsy to start exercising again! The timing was excellent... I arrived home, had time to shower and unpack a little bit before going to the gym, which is (as always) Monday "Fight Night" with Terence Tan! Sadly.. found out that just 5 days of not gymming and pigging out (er... found out the national specialty of Thailand .... the chili dog in 7-11! 4 days there resulted in 3 chili dogs consumed... always a night time snack fave. And I haven't even gone into the alcohol, the grilled squid, etc etc) had resulted in a total lack of stamina. *grim* I actually planned to go for Attack after that, but sorry la... the fact is that even shouting and doing Combat for me was horrible. The thought of going for Attack after that made my feet scream at me...

Yeah, and there's something wrong with my foot after all that walking in Bangkok. Perhaps I *should* rest a bit before going back to the gym. But I can't help it! I loveeeee my GX classes! :D :D Today's tracks were really nice too, lemme see if I can remember :
``` Stuck on You
``` Surrender
``` Beat It
``` Whatever You Like
``` Mangas Verde (Green sleeves, hahaha!)
``` Crashed the Wedding (usually, I really like this split class track, but I am soooo tired today!)
``` U + Ur Hand
``` Party Non Stop
``` Back in the UK
``` Dance Floor Anthem
``` No One

Hmm.. I think I missed a track listing there, but whatever la... the brain is not functioning correctly. :P Think I'm gonna crash after this. Sorry to say, but since I was feeling tired, I didn't feel like shouting that much during the class, and today a lot of regulars not around... so not much sound. When Combat doesn't have much sound... feel like something's missing in the air. Kekeke.

Oh, another reason why I wanna gym some more is because I got new Nikes!!!!!!! I don't LOVE them, but I like them more than the Reeboks I bought previously just because my shoes had torn and I wanted to get something cheap ASAP. The shoes wound up being 1/2 size too big and they are chunky things. I didn't even realise how chunky my shoes were til I carried my new shoes in the shoe bag and realised... WOW.. they are light! Performance wise... I cannot say lah, cos of other "environmental factors" that makes it harder to have a fair judgement... but after wearing shoes 1/2 size too big for 1 year + ... wearing shoes that are my size makes me feel like my legs are being bound. Not used to it la... but I think after 1 week, when fully broken in.. you will see me jumping so high that I'll hit the pipes on the ceiling WTF.

Day 374

Weight training day... + Body Jam! Usually I don't do weight training on Wednesdays, but because I'm gonna be on holiday soon + missing out on weight training yesterday, terpaksa-lah. I ended up staying in the gym til 11:30pm! *sigh* I had to work late, by the time I arrived, it was just in time for Shirlyn's Jam class. My God... and it was all the very cardio tracks as usual.

Warm-up : Work
1st performance track : Waters of March
2nd performance track : Robocop / Party Like a Rockstar / One Night Only / Turning Me On
Recovery : Livin' a Lie (loveeee this song)
Last performance track : the Harder Better Faster Stronger performance track... *Dies*
Cool down : Somebody Else's Guy (sad song, but it's really nice, easy listenin')

Had weight training after that. I decided to go back to HWLR because I feel really bored doing LWHR and also because I feel myself not getting stronger doing LWHR. Back to HWLR ... see what happens. I decided I don't care if my arm looks bigger than usual la. I'll just wear long sleeve tops foreverly forever from now on. :P

Chest press : 27.5, 25, 22.5 for 10, 12, 14 reps
Fly : 26kg, 21.5kg, 19kg (the machine rosak sikit) for 8,10,12
Abductor & Adductor : 45,40,35 for 8,10,12
Squats : 70,60,50 for 16,18,20
Shoulders : 25lb, 25lb, 25lb for 10, 10, 10. I tried 40lb... and could only do 5. But that's getting somewhere! Before this I was doing only 10lb, remember? So after a few weeks of weight training, can already lift more. :)
Triceps extension : 19kg, 14kg, 14kg for 8,10,11 (couldn't make it)
Back : 26kg, 24kg, 21.5kg for 8,10,12

Random free weights @ 8lb in each hand for bicep curls and er... I don't know what the movement is called, but supposedly works your shoulders. Yes, I am suddenly very concerned about my shoulders. :P

For abs, I did the chorey for BA65 Pokerface, hahaha. At least it will help me remember the chorey. And the cooldown for BA65 also for light stretching. Perhaps I shouldn't have 'cooldown' because I tried running after that (extra cardio mah...) and I wanted to train for marathon, remember? Crap lah... I can't run for nuts. I think I can JOG for long periods of time, but I started at 10kph and was dying already. I stopped after 5 minutes! Kekeke!! Really no motivation as well, since it was really late but really, no excuses lah. How can I run quickly for marathon if I can't even last 5 mins @ 10kph? And btw 10kph is really slow, cos that means I will take exactly 1 hr for a 10km marathon, and that's at CONSTANT speed. Sighhhh.

Anyway, for chorey I have finished all the BA65 and first 8 tracks of BA66. A lotttttt of polishing up to do. *fearful*

Guess what? Tracklists are out. I'm only putting my faves, haha:

What's with the Kelly Clarkson songs for the lower body warm-up? And Cascada songs for the final cardio track? Hahaha!
I'm already curious / excited about the Scooter song for the 1st cardio track.
And The Anthem!!!! Very nice song.. I had it as my wake-up call tone for the longest time ever. What is this track for? The split class / circle track?
Eeehhh... I hate Sean Kingston songs.... and I cannot imagine doing push ups or crunches to this. Anyway, Sean Kingston is not a good role model for push ups or crunches. *bitchy

Siow!! I'm looking forward to new release, and it's one month away! :O

Day 373

Supported Jayson in his Jaya 33 class after much naggings and scoldings... ahaha. Not bad! He did old tracks... from the Angels / Desert Storm era. :P The class in Jaya 33 is very quiet ... so not very syiok to shout... sigh...

Why ah... why are you all so quiet? :P Or maybe I am too bising?

Weight training tomorrow... miss my weight training. :D Hate the incline press btw... chest press much nicer (Read: easier lol)

Day 372

Went for Terence's Body Combat class... but he only did the first and last track because there was a clearance for this guy called Wayne. Who is supposedly Jayson's older brother, but I donno la. That guy likes to con me. Hmph!

Anyway, it was a fun class lah... don't know why, I was so energetic also. :P Wayne should pay me for making his class noisier.. at least got some support mar. Hahaha! Well, hope he did well.

After that, Jason's class was replaced by Kah Yin who did the entire BA 66 again, although her cool down and conditioning is a mixture of 65 and 66. :P *sshh* It was fun la.. I'm really starting to like the Take It To The Limit track... love it!! Tuck jump all the way! :)

Someone kinda annoyed me today, but hmph... *brush dirt off shoulders* Otherwise, a really good workout Monday. :)
