I declared today my laundry day. I woke up very late, about 1pm but the sun was shining so nicely, that I thought : "nice day to wash the sheets!". So I changed the sheets and pillow cases and washed not only my sheets & pillow cases but also my comforter and the blanket I bring to dialysis as well as the pillow I rest my dialysis arm on.
And then, the day became cloudy as the washing machine finished it's cycle. But I put the sheets and blankets out to dry anyway, I'm trusting that it won't rain, I was actually wishing for rain for weeks now, but it never did rain!
Why today as laundry day? Well, the water supply ppl have sent emails notifying us of water supply disruptions from Wednesday to Friday, so far no water disruption, but I'm washing everything before the water cuts off! I'm not taking any chances, I also decided to wash my clothes too! In case I run out of underwear if the water supply is disrupted!
Oh! Goody! Clean sheets to sleep on tonight, and not having to worry about laundry in general for a week or more at least!

I'm not a morning person, that's for sure! But today was exceptional, I woke up at 6.45am and decided to go for a walk. I didn't head out straightaway as it was still dark out. I had a cup of hot tea and a slice a bread, then headed out, it was about 6.55am when I finally headed out.
I walked/jogged for about 45 minutes. It felt good but I didn't sweat much. But then, I normally don't sweat much. It's so nice and cool early in the morning, but I had to stop around 7.40am because the sun was out and it was starting to get hot. This is a country on the equatorial belt, after all, y'know, summer all year round and all.
I'm determined to do this every morning as I can only go out after 7pm these days if I exercise only in the evenings as Malaysia is in the middle of another heatwave. That's doesn't leave me much time to work out. So, hopefully, from today onwards, I'll supplement my daily workouts with morning walks.
I'm not a morning person but I have to try! I certainly need the exercise! I'll zap that belly roll someday..............

Oh no! I'm 56.2kgs instead of 56kgs after dialysis today. Which means no 2nd helpings of my Mom's delicious tom yum soup and no visits to the coconut groove or McD's tomorrow.
I mean, sure, 200 grams, big deal! But it's a big deal to me, after my almost stellar record of achieving my dry weight every time!
Sigh! I'll have to watch my fluid intake carefully from now on, even on weekends because most deaths happen on weekends.......

Well, I didn't do so well in the dialysis centre today. Towards the last 15 minutes, I started getting cramps and getting breathless, sure enough I was getting an anxiety attack.
The nurse had to end my treatment 15 minutes early. As a result, I was 200 grams off the mark. Which means I was 56.2kgs instead of 56kgs, which is ideal. Yeah well, 200 grams is not a lot but it's marring my track record! I almost always achieve my dry weight!
Which is why, like a good girl, I only had one little helping of my mom's tom yum soup today, sigh! I would have loved seconds but I need to cut back on my fluids! That means no visiting the coconut groove tomorrow..... :(

So, I'm sitting around surfing in SP, feeling bored, when the thought comes :
"Man! I could use a double cheeseburger right now, I'm sooooo hungry!".
I know it's a bad idea but the craving wouldn't go. And I was genuinely hungry, I've had nothing to eat all day but a couple of tuna sandwiches made with my mom's homemade bread.
My mind was debating where to go to get my snack. Should I walk 30 minutes to the closest McD's? To Old Town Coffee House for noodles? To the nearby café called Coconut Groove for a coconut shake?
Then I reflected on the state of my finances. I have been spending a lot lately, so I couldn't afford to spend more, I've got to start saving money. So, I decided to make myself some oatmeal with added cereal to make it thicker to take the edge off my hunger...
It worked! I'm not hungry anymore and the burger fantasies have disappeared! Hallelujah!!!
