    @katjustkat - Thank you ❤️ Love love love zumba💃 When we were in the countryside, DH opened a cafe. So, when we decided to move back to the city, DH just open up another cafe just like the one we had. It's a small cafe. I quit my job to help him coz covid-19 has hit us badly. Now, it's a hubby & wife team.

    Good evening OMAD-ers 😘

    CW: 60.1kg

    Its been a while since I wrote. Been a little busy at the shop which is good news. Have bills, school fees, rent, etc etc etc to pay monthly. Sometimes, I do wish that I didn't quit my job so that there's another income but, if I do that, I will be using my salary to pay DH's staff as business has slowed down a lot since covid-19 started. So, its better to work with DH.

    I really hope to see the land of the 50s before April 2021 is over🤞 Still doing my zumba daily💃

    What did I have for my OMAD today? One of my favourite food (I have a lot of favourites) and it's Banh Mi.

    JP cool that you opened a cafe! I would never know how to do that. In order to make some income, I taught myself to trade stocks 22 years ago. It has been a Godsend for us. I'm hoping to wind down as I spend too much time in front of the computer. I highly recommend learning how to trade for extra income.
    That sammy looks professional! ummmm I can imagine biting into that soft chewy bread yummmmm....haha

    @mistymeadows2005 - Yes, I think lots of people love banh mi😍 We make this at our cafe too🤩

    @katjustkat - Thank you ❤️ We sells banh mi at the cafe too and that's what I made for my OMAD 😍 Yes, DH has opened the cafe for 10 years before we move back to the city. We just shifted his cafe (lock, stock and barrel) to the city😁

    Good afternoon OMADers 😘

    Met a school mate earlier at Costco and we were talking about how much we gained since college days😂 I remember when I first joined this group in July 2018 and my stats were

    Height : 5'2"
    SW : 67kg
    CW : 64.2kg
    GW : 50kg

    In October 2019, I managed to get down to around 52kg. Then when COVID-19 came about, my body balloon back up to 62-63kg. So now, I am back up onto the wagon to loose back the weight that I gained. My school mate calls it yo-yo dieting.

    My OMAD for today was Costco hotdog and Pepsi Max. Managed to zumba yesterday evening and hopefully zumba this evening too 🤞

    Have a good weekend ❤️

    Another beautiful, nutritious meal! You making me itch to get back to the gym. Did you find a zumba online that you like or do you have to go to the gym?

    @katjustkat - Thank you ❤️ As we have to be at the shop, I will go to youtube and follow the zumba there after we close. 😊

    Good evening OMAD-ers 😘

    Had been quite consistent as I am satisfied with my OMAD. However, the weight loss is slow. But, that is OK. At least I don't crave and then start grazing😂. Have been zumba-ing daily too which am happy with.

    Here's my OMAD for today, Crispy Crackling Pork Belly with Egg Noodle.
