It's still a treat........

Monday, May 23, 2011

Lately, I've been fixated about getting a pair of low-waist skinny jeans that fit just so. Y'know, like a second skin but still comfortable. I actually had my heart set on a faded blue Levi's. Only that it's more than RM200!

I was debating with myself, should I get it now or when I've lost my belly roll? Well, because of lack of finances, I've been putting getting my Levi's off.

However, yesterday, I bought a pair of nice lacy hipster panties and a comfy seamless bra. And it wasn't too expensive but I now have less money in my savings.

Well, I guess, the skinny jeans will have to be the end goal treat, when I finally reach my goal weight and don't have a belly roll. In the meantime, I'll treat myself in other, less expensive ways.

I look at it this way, at least when I finally get my new jeans, I have a nice pair of hipster panties to go with it and a nice, seamless bra to go under my T-shirt!

Ok, belly roll! Now I mean business...........

Sunday, May 22, 2011

Oh Lord! I hate my belly roll! I was trying on a pair of low-waist jeans today and my belly literally just spilled over the low waist!!!! I'm not kidding!!!! I was mortified, with myself and my darn belly roll!

That pair that I tried on was 50% off and was a really cute design. But after looking at the belly roll spilling over the waist, I decided that this time I mean business. I'm going to stop overeating and exercise regularly! Whatever it takes to lose that belly!

Then, when the belly roll is gone, I will look into buying cute new clothes!

    Now, this is an "if you want to". Go ahead and buy those jeans as a either a goal motivator, or a reward for losing what has already been lost. I think the 'belly roll' is the last thing to go on us mommies! (I have five children and will occasionally shake my belly fat at them and say "This is you!"

Nurturing the Child in me

Saturday, May 21, 2011

I went to the mall yesterday and I bought 3 pairs of adorable earrings! You can get 3 pairs of earrings there for RM10, not expensive at all, pretty cheap, actually. One pair had tiny egg burgers, another had tiny crab roll sushi and the 3rd had tiny hot dogs, all made of clay. I also bought a pair of daisy hair-clips (also made of clay).

Reading this, you may think I'm a teen or younger, but I'm almost 40! I will be in less than 2 years. But I don't care. I look young for my age, everyone tells me so. And as long as I can get away with it, I'll keep wearing cute things until I really look too old for them. But even when my age starts showing, I don't know if I can give up my hair accessory and earring collection. I guess I'll always be young at heart.

On an earlier trip, I also bought a bracelet from the same shop with a sandwich, a hotdog, a burger, a croissant in clay charms with a little pink bell. I really wanted to buy a sushi charm bracelet but I stopped myself because I didn't want to spend all of my RM50. I'm saving up for some Levi's jeans, so I need to be more careful with my spending.

However, I did buy a small bottle of gold nail polish. I'm now typing this with gold fingernails! How cool is that?! I also painted my toe nails in the same color! Cool, huh?

Actually, I don't care how old I get, I will always have the same sense of quirky style!

Oppssss! I think I ate too much!

Thursday, May 19, 2011

Oh No! It's only 3pm and I think I've overeaten. I woke up hungry and thirsty. I ate a sausage bun upon waking, around 10.30am.

Then I had a packet of instant noodles for lunch. Around 12ish. And then, around 2pm, I started feeling peckish and made a little meal, it was too big for a snack. I cut one potato into wedges, coated it with corn flour, salt & pepper and deep-fried it along with 2 fish nuggets, walla! fish and chips!

Most delicious! Oh! Naughty, naughty girl! lol!

Now, I gotta cut back when it comes to dinner today. We'll see.......

    Still sounds so good. Hope you didn't gain any. I've read how important this is to you.

    I had to stop by your blog because the other day I posted a blog with almost the exact same title!
Anyway don't stress it! Your fish & chips sounded soo good! Maybe your body was just craving the extra calories for some reason. I'm sure you didn't gain any weight today.. remember it takes 3500 calories over what we burn to gain 1 pound.
I hope you have a good rest of the day!

    that happens to me often too. I think its a misscommunication between your thirst and your appetite. Instead of saying I need water it says stomach empty.
But still, no excuse for the fried fatty foods!!! haha..

cheers, your swede head hahah... emoticon

A nice Sunday outing!

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I was itching to get the original book by Neil Gaiman entitled "Coraline" after watching the charming stop-motion movie by the same name. Actually, I wanted to go the nearby mall to get it but there was no one to drive me there. So, I made up my mind to go today instead, except it's to a different mall.

I went to the first bookshop, which was having a sale but they were sold out. I then went to the big bargain bookshop upstairs. AND, they had multiple copies of "Coraline" in hard cover, it cost a little more but it's either I get the hardcover version or I get some paperback in a not so good condition, which still cost a little more than the one on sale (in the first shop).

I also bought another book of short stories by Neil Gaiman from the first bookshop. I also bought a cute little notebook to take sermon notes in. I got this at a discount because it was the last copy, it was actually the display copy. It was the last red one, and I wanted the red one, so I asked for a discount, as it wasn't pristine anymore but acceptable, it will lose it's pristine condition with frequent use anyway.

Um, speaking of sermon notes, I missed church today because I was stuck in the mall because it was pouring out there. I did want to go, but after buying the books and 2 bottles of shampoo, I didn't have enough transport money left, so I opted to go home.

As I didn't fancy walking to the subway in the pouring rain, I sat down in a cafe to wait it out. I ordered a slice of pecan butterscotch cake and a cup of Earl Grey Tea, which is why I'm still up though it's past midnight.

I should give myself a pat on the back though, I passed by McDonald's, and the temptation was great to get another coca cola glass but I passed, I don't think my body can withstand another 900 plus calories without expanding......
