Fat City

Before coming to America, Raft3r weighed himself.

No, I am not telling you how fat I am!

It's almost a given that when one visits the US, the tendency is to gain some - oh, alright - a whole lotta weight. Damn you, buffet restaurants.

I promised myself I would defy the odds. The hotel has a gym and a sauna. I vowed to workout every night after class.

After month and a half, I still haven't been to the gym. Well, Raft3r has seen it. Does that count?

I don't think I have packed a few pounds yet. I no longer eat rice. Raft3r can survive on sandwiches and chips. Utz is my current favorite. 

I also walk a lot. But always with an ice cream on hand.

Given the situation, Raft3r should do another weigh in. But I don't wanna ruin my day.

No matter how many gyms and saunas there are in a hotel anywhere, nothing beats sampling cuisines and resto no matter how familiar they already are =)

Raft3r, why not changing one of your 100 wishes? Instead of sex at the beach, why not a sauna? Wouldn't that give you more incentive to exercise so you can hit the sauna? You know what they say about sex session after exercising...=D

You don't eat rice but you include chips in your daily diet. Ganon din yon, cut down on the chips and do away with mayonnaise in your sandwich kasi ang daming fat nyan. Buti na lang may sport ka or else lumba lumba ka talaga hehehe:) Peace den, love you hehehe:)
