Nestle Omega Plus Walk-A-Mile 2016

by - Tuesday, September 06, 2016

I told myself that I will at least workout 30min - 2 hour at every early in the morning. I used to workout Crossfit and weightlifting 1 hour a day and consistently for almost a year. I was really skinny back then and I would say I manage to get ideal body (with the help of whey protein). However, one year ago, I had an accident when I was in Langkawi for a month. Due to the accident, I could not able to walk for more than 3 months. To make it worst, I gain so much weight due to an unhealthy lifestyle. Now, I've totally been recovering and I will try my best to work out at least 30min-2 hour a day. Not to mention my big day will be at the end of the year. 

Recently I joined Nestle Omega Plus Walk-A-Mile 2016 at Lake Garden Kuala Lumpur and I totally love it. Actually, I was prepared for some run, then only I realize it is walking event hahaha... One thing for sure, I was so excited because this is my 1st event walk/run hehehe usually I just run on the treadmill.

Do you know that it would take, on average, 1 hour and 43 minutes of walking to burn off a 540-calorie Big Mac. 

OMG!!! I just found out this is the 15th event organized by #YayasanJantungMalaysia. It was a fun experience. Thank you #NestleOmegaPlus for organizing #WalkAMile2016. I'm looking forward to next year's event.

 It is important to provide energy throughout our day. A bowl of cereal and 2 cups milk Nestle Omega Plus ® is sufficient to stay energized all day long!

Do you know how important it is to take care of your health?
Every 15 minutes, there is one death caused by heart disease in Malaysia. Although many Malaysians are aware that heart disease is the number one killer in Malaysia, many of us tend to wait until later to address our heart health under the perception that heart disease only affects the elderly. However, research has proven that Malaysians in their thirties have ageing arteries similar to people in their seventies due to their lifestyles. The truth is that Malaysians need to take care of their heart health now instead of later.
There's plenty of activity were provided by Nestlé Omega Plus® for participants. Not to mention free flow Nestle Omega with cereals and of course Milo. I was very pleased with the activities organized. The most exciting activity is Zumba.

This year marks the 15th year that Nestlé Omega Plus® has organised the annual Walk-A-Mile (WAM) event, in collaboration with Yayasan Jantung Malaysia (YJM). WAM is the longest-running event for heart health advocacy in this country. 

“As Malaysia’s heart health advocate, we truly believe that your heart is in your own hands. Heart disease does not happen overnight but through years of living with these habitual risk factors. But the good news is that you could save a life in as little as 15 minutes as brisk walking reduces the risk of high cholesterol, high blood pressure and diabetes,” said Chew Soi Ping, Executive Director, Sales, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad, in his welcome speech at the event. 

Chew Soi Ping also presented a cheque from Nestlé Omega Plus® totalling RM30,000 to Yayasan Jantung Malaysia (YJM) towards the continuous support on the efforts and dedication of YJM to educate the public on heart health matters.
