Continuing from last post, I will record my competition day story here. In overall, it was good experience for me to joi...

Aside from regular gym and supplement cost, I had to buy several items to join Fitness competition in last month. I also restarted personal training with new trainer in Jetts. All fee was already paid but I will record here 800THB every time when I actually had lesson.

Travel – 4,242 THB

Transportation 2,180 Vietjet to Phuket
60 Songteaw in Phuket
Hostels 972 Phuket town 3 nights + Patong 1 night
Miles 1,030 Alaska miles 1000 miles

I flew to Phuket at the end of year for competition as travelling cost. To save the cost, I just stayed at guesthouse where there are several double beds in one room to share the space with other travelers.

Alaska miles is the mileage program by Alaska airlines. This is one of point program that I collect points to get reward flights to redeem. Points will be expired if there is no movement for 2 years. Since I had no chance to use points to get award flight for the past 2 years due to Covid-19 restriction, so as not let my points expires, I purchased only 1,000 miles to extend its validity for 2 years more.

Food – 6,576 THB

Normally I cook by myself that owes a lot to save cost and control my nutrition perfectly to my body. Only very few times, 1 or 2 times maybe I will dine in the restaurants per month.

In my previous post, you can refer what I eat regularly to build and win the fitness competition.

This time, I would like to reveal what I have done towards fitness competition particularly in last month.

Housing – 7,600 THB

I rent a one bed room 28㎡ of condominium in Bangkok.
