Going on Week 8 of Vietnam's Directive 15 (together with Directive 10) social distancing measures. Yeah, we unofficially call it a lockdown but in reality, it is just stricter social distancing measures. I will occasionally go out but it has been two weeks since I have been on motorbike. Next week I will need to take my motorcycle out to clear out the system.
I have been doing a lot of work with Next.js these days. I really like this framework. I finally decided to return to the not-for-profit world, well sort of. My next project will be similar to a social enterprise but I decided to go fully business. After seeing the negatives of social enterprise regulations which crippled SEAACT from the beginning, I figured the business model with a social enterprise feel would be much easier to set up.
Learned to cut my own hair
Because all the barbers are closed now, I decided to trim the sides of my head. Well, as you can see, it did not go so well. I took one of the attachments off and pretty much made one part of my head bald. Then I shaved my entire head.
I love it! I decided I will never go to a barber again. I will cut my hair at least once a week myself.
Cardio at home
Though I cannot go the gym, I still do cardio at home. My resting heart rate is still good but I really miss the gym. This afternoon I will do some HIIT with cardio walk afterwards. I can do this in my room thankfully.
The last two lockdowns, I always gained weight. The first time was because I was not exercising. The second was due to my diet. This time around I started to do intermittent fasting. I eat only from 11 AM to 7 PM. It was hard at first but your body adjusts. I have lost weight and now at about 87 kilos. Last year I weighed 93 kilos. I hope to get my weight down to 85 kg before this lockdown ends.
So I am still sane. I will try to post more often here. I want to test the Japanese translation from Bing. Hence you may see an English post followed by Japanese in the future.
