As usual, I procrastinated till the very last minute. Then I couldn't exercise bcoz my Mom was in the room with me going thru her hoard of carrier bags. The whole floor was littered with bags, so I couldn't roll out my Pilates mat to do my Pilates till she went out of the room to watch TV.
Oh, I'm doing my workouts in front of the computer instead of the TV bcoz my DVD player is out of order! I didn't feel up to a 45 minute Leah Sarago Core Pilates workout (that always makes me sweat) becoz I haven't been exercising for more than a week. So, I decided to take it slow.
Instead I did a few of Cassey Ho's workouts ( I think I put in like close to 40 minutes). Didn't really count blogilates.com . After which I feel like 'wobbly' all over, like I can't stand straight, if you know what I mean. I couldn't even finish all the reps when I could before which shows how out of shape I am! Gotta have more discipline! Got to!!!

Ugh! I both love and hate being a woman! There are just so many good deals come Christmas season! Everything seems to be on sale! Everything from jewellery, fragrances, cosmetics, clothes, hair accessories, you name it!!!!
So far, I've spend a few hundred ringgit! But the deals keep popping up. It takes willpower not to spend more! But I'm going to be strong!!! No more major purchases till next year during this time of the year. Then the struggle will begin again!!!! Sigh!

I'm so happy now! In fact, I'm thrilled because I just bought a Laneige makeup set! Laneige is from Korea. It consists of 3 mini lipsticks, and 4 shimmery eyeshadows. I decided to buy this set because I loved the colors. The lipsticks are pinkish (3 different shades) and I think would go well with my complexion. I'm Chinese and have a kinda medium tone skin. I'm not too dark but I'm not really fair either. I suppose you could call me medium fair; but not dark enough to be olive.
This set set is only available during this Christmas season and already the one I bought is the 2nd last set! The salesgirl told me that these Christmas sets sell very fast and they have very limited stocks! Already this is the first day of the Christmas sales but the sets have already started selling before the official start of the Christmas sales. I'm glad that I booked my set the moment I saw the catalog ads!!!!
Well, that's Laneige! I saw another offer from Estee Lauder. You only get to purchase this set only if you buy something else (purchase with purchase). This set is more value for money, I suppose (8 matte eyeshadows, one full sized lipstick, one lip pencil, and a few other things); but you can only purchase this set for an additional RM120 only if you spend like RM200+ first on something else. So, in total, you will have to spend at least RM300! I can't justify spending that much money on vanity items! LOL! But my Laneige set only cost me RM120 only without other conditions and I got some free samples for the BB cushion foundation as well; as well as small bottles of the toner and moisturiser (one each).
I suppose the Estee Lauder offer was more value for money. But I prefer the Laneige colors better. And with the Estee Lauder package, you will need to spend like 3 times more (because if I pick the Estee Lauder offer, I will most probably buy a bottle of perfume for like RM300 plus!!!! And then get the makeup set for an ADDITIONAL RM120!!! Yikes!!!! I don't have that much cash!). So, I'll just content myself with my little Laneige Winter Wonderland Makeup Palette!!!!
Whew!!!! It's tough being a woman, isn't it!!!!???

I woke up with aching shoulders this morning because of the 40 minute Pilates workout yesterday evening (Saturday). I think I'll just walk today to get my cardio in. I don't think I can do another pushup today, my arms are aching so bad.......sigh!
I barely made it to church this morning because my bed felt so comfortable!!! LOL!!! I was thinking : "Maybe I'll skip church today because I want to sleep in!"; but my better half won, and I forced myself up to get ready for church. I barely made it, I was like 5 minutes late and missed the first half of the first worship song!
But at least I listened the the sermon today. Does your mind wander during each sermon? Mine does and I have to force my mind back to concentrate on the sermon! I even struggle to do my daily quiet time with the Lord. I also sometimes forget to say grace before meals, but I am getting better at it though...........

I went for dialysis as usual this Friday. I really didn't expect it. At around 5pm, when I had like 30 minutes of treatment more to go, the light suddenly went off. I thought that we had a power failure or something.
Suddenly, the nurses started to sing the bday song! My bday was last Thursday actually. But the nurse that bought the cake was on leave till today! It was a becreamed and chocolate flake sprinkle concoction! Honestly, the cake was like one third whipped cream!!!!
I was so naughty, I had 3 helpings of the cake!!! It was delicious!!!! I have a great weakness for cream cakes. That's why I don't have it often!!! Otherwise I'll be a lot fatter than I am now!!! As it is, I already have a pouchy tummy! But you just can't have cake for dinner. I felt like a burger later that night, so my Mom treated me to McD's!
I had a big and tasty burger and a large fries; except that I split the fries with my Mom, who also loves fries. I ordered a small coffee for her but they got the order wrong, and my Mom had 12oz coffee instead (the big one). Because I ordered the large McValue meal, I opted for a large orange juice instead of a large coke. I only drank one third of it and gave the rest to my brother, who had just finished his shift! He must have been thirsty because he took like less than 5 minutes to finish the entire cup (or rather 2 thirds of a cup!).
I brought the remains of the cake home yesterday but since my brother didn't want it, I finished it this afternoon. I had a very good sleep! I woke up around 2pm today!!!! I'm usually extra tired on a Friday, being the 3rd and last treatment of the week and all!
It was such a nice surprise!!! I thought they had forgotten my bday but they didn't!!!! It's so nice to be thought of!!!!
