Oh, Good Lord! I'll probably go insane without air-conditioning! Nearly a week without rain and the weather is scorching hot here! 35 degrees Celsius, the last time I heard the news!
I don't feel like exercising either but I guess I'll just have to get used to exercising indoors. Well, there's always tomorrow! My lips are cracking with the heat too! I wish I could soak myself in an ice-bath till the heat wave is over!
And unfortunately, I've been over-drinking because of the heat! I'll probably get a tongue lashing from my friend the nurse when I turn up for dialysis tomorrow........

Actually, I should have posted this a few weeks ago when I actually got my hair restyled but I never got around to it till now. My bad!
Anyway, I LOVE It! I got graduated layers (I think that's what they are called) cut from my chin to the bottom, so it looks stylish. I have square jaws and I read that if I had my hair cut that way, it softens my look.
I also had my fringe styled so that I have a side parting at last, my hair is stubborn and usually I have a center parting, which I've read is bad for square jaws. Only thing is, I have to keep using hair wax to keep my fringe in place.
Thank God for hair wax!
Here's a pic (though not a very good one, but so you get the general idea of my haircut!) :

I think I'm getting addicted to churros! I keep having them every time I go to the neighborhood mall!
Yesterday, I had 2 caramel-filled churros for lunch! Man! Were they good! Surprisingly filling too! I also went to the bakery to see what they had and bought a chicken and mushroom puff. I had that for tea during dialysis today, it was good too.
Actually, I shouldn't have had the puff because frankly speaking, the churros were filling enough. So, for dinner, I omitted my usual serving of rice and just had veggies, tofu and pork ball soup with veggies for dinner.
I hope I didn't go over in calories. I usually go under.

Well, the doctor came to dialysis centre today to see us. When my turn came he congratulated me on my descending phosphate levels, he said if I continue watching my protein/phosphate intake, I will soon have normal (acceptable) phosphate levels.
However, he said that my calcium levels were still too high. So, I have to swear off dairy products and high calcium foods completely! Otherwise, my phosphate blocker will be changed to Lanthanum salts, which means an additional expense of RM300.
I told the doctor, there's no way I can afford that. I'll be praying about this tonight. I believe the Lord can do anything, including zapping my calcium levels down.......

Well, despite all my good intentions last night, I had a bit of trouble sleeping. I even woke up several times with a dry mouth, and I had to go downstairs to the freezer to get an ice-cube. Sucking on an ice cube lessens the amount of fluid intake as opposed to chugging down on ice water.
I finally managed to nod off around 1.30am, the result of which I couldn't hear the alarm go off at 5.30am. Around 6.05am, my lift arrived and called my mobile phone. Now, that I heard and I jumped out of bed with a "Oh No! I overslept! That must be Uncle J!" (my lift).
Hurriedly, I answered my phone and requested that he wait for me 2 minutes. I speedily brush my teeth, pulled on a pair of jeans and a t-shirt (It's acceptable in Malaysia to go to church in jeans and and a t). I didn't even have time to put on my watch. But fortunately, I remembered the library book.
I told myself : "I know you're sleepy, but try to stay awake during the sermon!", well, guess what? I succeeded! I attended both the Sunrise Service at 6.30am and the First Easter Service at 8.30am. I even managed to return the library book and borrow another one in between.
I also had a nice breakfast of chinese steamed buns called pau. I had one vegetarian pau, and one bbq pork pau. Both were delicious!
When I got home around 10am, I crashed into bed and had a nap. I've just woken up, I don't feel sleepy anymore. I plan to have a relaxing day, just cross-stitching or reading......
