Feeling Good After Workout then a Shower!

Sunday, July 06, 2014

It was another hot, muggy day and I just didn't feel like working out but I made myself do it anyway! I picked a short 25 minute Jane Fonda workout, convincing myself that it will be over before I know it! 25 minutes! Just 25 minutes!

Well, 25 minutes later, I was done! And sweaty! I then took a cold shower and washed my hair. I feel so good now! I have to keep reminding myself of how good I always feel after a workout to motivate myself everytime!

Ever feel lazy about working out? Just do it anyway!

    Same for me. I get on the treadmill and think, 'It's only for 45 mins" and before I know it, I'm done, sweating and ready for a shower. Love those days!

    More often than not I feel lazy about getting started. I ever regret doing it after I get it done!

Good for you!

    I always feel much better after a work out and shower. I sometimes like to go dip in the hot tub after I shower off the sweat and cool down a bit. The hydromassage feels good and helps relieve any soreness or prevent it.

Have a wonderfully blessed day!

Ever had a cat chase your shoelace?

Thursday, July 03, 2014

That's what happened when I was visiting with a feline friend today. I am not sure but I think he is the reason my shoelace came undone in the first place! I moved my foot away but he kept chasing and pouncing on my shoelace! I was worried about getting scratched but thankfully he stopped.

Then I saw a dried up coconut leaf which is pretty big and long. I quickly tied up my shoelace and spent some happy minutes teasing him with the coconut leaf! Problem was I didn't walk much today because I was having so much fun with my feline friend! By the time he stopped pouncing on the coconut leaf, it was dark.

I hope I can get up early tmrw morning for a morning walk to make up for missing my evening walk today!

    When my cat Timmy was a kitten, he would play with my shoelaces while I was trying to tie them, lol!

Heat, Humidity & Aching Legs!

Saturday, June 28, 2014

I suppose I should exercise indoors more but I've been a little lazy. Prefering instead to lace up my sneakers just before twilight when it isn't so hot. The problem with that is my frequent stops to play with my friends! Huh? My 4 legged friends, to be honest! And I love both dogs & cats! Lol!

There's this beautiful Norwegian Forest Cat named Chico de Pico and various Golden Retrievers. They seem to be very popular in Malaysia. Then there is that pair of Siberian Huskies named Don & Maya. I just need to walk a few minutes and I will bump into my various 4 legged friends! And they are always happy to see me!

But despite my frequent visits, I do get in some walking because my legs are aching now........

    Basically wear thinner clothes and take more showers. Also air conditioning is very important! Lol!

    I just wanted to ask, how do you deal with the humidity? What do you do to stay cool? What works? emoticon

    Good for you! I find that my legs ache when I don't walk. So when they are aching, I get up and do some walking then I feel better. Our bodies crave exercise. Our mind makes us lazy.

    I think the visits with 4 legged friends is a bonus for your walking when it is cooler!

    I agree with COOP9002, nothing wrong with waiting until the temperature outside drops a bit before you go on your walks. (As long as it doesn't interfere with your sleep, anyway.) It's good to get outside every now and then, too! I prefer to exercise outside in the summer rather than indoors, even if the air conditioning does make the indoor setting more comfortable. I like to explore my environment.

    There's nothing wrong with exercising when it's a little cooler. Hope the rest of your day goes well.

Feeling Generous, Magnanimous and All that good stuff!!!

Wednesday, June 18, 2014

I went to the movies yesterday. I went to see "How to Train Your Dragon 2"! It was a good movie! I really enjoyed it! That's all I'll say! Ha! Ha!

Before the movie, I had lunch at a Japanese restaurant. I had a serving of pork gyoza (6 pcs) and a serving each of ebikko and salmon sushi (2 pcs of each). I could have ordered a bento set, it would have been more value for money but I decided to eat less because I was already heavy enough (I'm on dialysis and I have to keep monitoring my weight closely!).

Well, after lunch I went to see the movie, I decided to get some caramel popcorn, I wanted to get a small serving but the smallest size was still a giant one! My God! The portion sizes these days are ridiculous! No wonder obesity is a problem everywhere! Even in Malaysia!

Well, I ate a little of it, about a small handful and gave the rest of that huge tub of popcorn to my skinny cousin. He can afford to finish it, unlike me. I am still trying to lose weight. I just rang him just now. He said he enjoyed it! I am glad! At least it didn't go to waste. And I dread to think how many calories I would have injested had I finished it!

Overconfidence will be the death of me!

Thursday, June 05, 2014

I woke up this morning with a weight of 57.8kgs. "Yippee!", I thought, "I have allowance to drink and eat more!". (For those new to my blogs, I am on dialysis, so what I eat and drink has to be monitored closely).

Well, by the end of today, I weighed 60kgs! What?! Did I take in that much?! I will now go on my knees and ask God for a miracle. A miracle where I will suddenly drop a kg or 2 or I will be in trouble tomorrow when I go for dialysis. I will be reprimanded by the nurses and I will leave the center tomorrow with extra fluid in my body which just isn't a good idea on a Friday AND my Mom is taking me out for a nice lunch tmrw.

Oh man! Will I be in trouble tmrw. This isn't the first time! I really should know better! I've been on dialysis for abt 10 years! Where did my head go?! What is WRONG with me?!

    Exactly it's not about "what's wrong with you", but now you can learn and be concious to do better next time. Next time you see a weight loss, instead of giving up on your plan, have it be a reminder that the healthy lifestyle is working... and that if you keep on your plan, you'll reach your goal.

The next ti,e you see the scale go in the direction you want tell yourself "I am going to keep making positive steps so I can keep seeing positive results."

Best wishes!

    I agree, don't beat yourself up over it, just use it as a learning experience.

And I would be honest with the nurses and explain what happened, they should be understanding instead of making you feel bad about it! My mom has kidney disease, and it's not an easy condition to manage.

    Don't ask what's wrong with you... Just ask how you can do better next time... We all make mistakes. I hope you'll be okay at the center.
