so, i was told i'm fat...

my brother's gf promoted a gym VIP pass at True Fitness for a month and i decided to check it out today... so after electives at HKL in the morning, i rushed home to collect my sneakers (yes, i have a pair of sneakers! :-) Mummy bought them so i could follow her on her evening walks, although we've only been for a handful of times..) and we set off for pavilion!

upon reaching, this sales promoter called Nicole brought us to the lowermost floor of their 3 floors of grandeur and took us on a tour of the place. She told us it'd only take 30 mins, but she walked soooooooo slowly and spoke so slowly, asking abt us and telling us abt herself (like how she studied in china and stays in wangsa maju, and how she takes the lrt to work everyday.. etc etc).. but the place is amazing, each treadmill comes with a touch screen monitor that doubles as a tv, we can select from channel V, rtm 1, star movies, espn and one more channel. or plug in your usb drive. the bathrooms were amazing, and the multitude of gadgets and personal fitness trainers were overwhelming.

then... tam tam tam...
she brought us to the fitness trainer to measure my body fat. they used this gadget to measure my fat folds of my biceps, triceps, over my scapula and my abdomen. there were 5 levels i think 1 was excellent, can't recall 2, 3 was ok, 4 was fair and 5 was obese. he'd key in your age, and boom a number will come out to correspond with the levels. i was a level 4, almost a level 5. that means i was bordering on obese!!

while i know i have let myself go, not worried abt what i eat, i've jsut eaten whatever i wanted even roast pork dripped in oil, and 300g steamed peanuts daily for 3 days straight, buffets and i havent exercised since november... but to tel my i'm bordering on obese is a tad too much, i think. i guess they have a higher standard of health, one that is undoubtedly admirable, but one that i deem too unrealistic for me.
i wonder how ppl who go to gyms daily do it...

at the end of it, nicole made us wait another half an hour for her to process our application. i planned to be done with my workout and bath in one hour, i.e. to leave pavilion at 1 but i only mamanged to reach home at 3...

but wow... i'm actually fat...
