I just got back from the gym when I was writing this. I ghosted my gym. I went missing for weeks, but today I’m back! I realized that my stamina has all gone downhill so I started with squats, crunches and weights before doing any intense cardio.
✨Reminder : Never skip gym for more than 3 days. You’ll start slacking and it’ll be hard to start over.
My payday is approaching and I am planning to eat clean (said and done many times and lasted for 3 weeks top). I was deciding between ordering a meal plan from a healthy food delivery website here in Malaysia but was taken aback when I look at the price. After browsing through several websites, the average price for a heavy meal is around RM15-RM22. Dude, that’s like eating lunch at Secret Recipe everyday. I myself never spend more than RM5 during lunch hour plus I always bring my own food cause I hate going out when its scorching. I’d rather buy thosai or roti telur which costs less than RM3. Stingy lil bitch.
At the same time I am just so tempted with the pretty tupperware/lunch box provided 😂 So Instagram-worthy. But to spend almost RM200 for like 10-12 meals is just pffffffffttttt mindblowing. Lemme show you.
Dahmakan.com is the ultimate Instagram-worthy and like super fancy food so far I’ve seen. Hence the price starting from RM21. They have the Prime meal plan where you get 10 meals, and you can choose anything on the website without extra charges (the meals are amazing) for RM199. Dietliciouss.my has this Weight Loss 12 meals package for only RM190. Less RM10 with 2 extra meals. You can choose the menu for each carbohydrate, protein, and vegetables section. Not much option or variation if you’re like me, picky and there are certain meal that I just can’t imagine enjoying. So you have to repeat the same carbs/protein/veges if some of the options aren’t your taste.
But if you’re interested well then go ahead and let me know how they taste hehehe. And of course you can purchase a single meal from the websites. Today I did my own homework to see whether it’ll be cheaper when I cook my own meal prep. My only problem is, I am lazy to cook. I took extra 10 minutes before waking up every morning so I can’t imagine waking up even earlier to cook. But then again hence the meal prepping! I read that the experienced meal prepper choose to cook on Sunday & Wednesday. You prepare for 3 days of meal first and not for a week straight because we want the food to be as fresh as it can.
This is my grocery shopping list :
RM130 plus minus lah. This includes breakfast (cereal & milk) andddddd fruits! The rest are the ingredients to cook which I bet can last for weeks. I forgot to survey on the protein though! Haha. I walked out of Tesco realizing that I forgot to look at the price of a dory or mackerel fish. Now my estimated grocery price are not complete. Sigh. I plan to cook only fish dishes as I’m avoiding chicken as per advised by my doctor. The ingredients are based on a few recipes I referred from Jamie Oliver’s website such as :
• Grill Masala Fish
• Asian style fish
• Fish Fingers
• Simple baked fish
• Salmon Nicoise
I think I’m going to go with meal prepping on my own guys. Oh by the way from the meal prepping guides I read, buy a tupperware/container with dividers so you can preserve the food longer, as it won’t become mixed and mushy, and also if you’re like me, you’ll look forward to eating healthy when you see that pretty lunch box aite haha. I start small so I don’t get too excited about this, let’s do it for 2 weeks first. Having short term planning is better than a long term to avoid any chickening out halfway through the diet.
