Cheat Day Again but This Time within Reason

Saturday, July 09, 2011

I took a long walk to the nearby Indian restaurant and had poori for dinner today. My Mom actually bought lunch and dinner before disappearing for the whole day (it's now 11pm and she's still not back) but I just felt like having something naughty for dinner. Poori is something like a deep-fried chapati served with some mashed potato in spices, similar to a curried mashed potato (forgot the proper name for it).

I did enjoy, most ppl order 2 poories but I only ordered 1 but it was enough to fill me up. I did buy a packet of potato chips containing 2 servings. I just had 1 serving a few minutes ago. I will save the other half for my next potato chip craving.

All in all, a not so bad cheat day as yes, I did eat fried food but I also had a 40 minute walk in order to get it. I always walk to the place when I know I'm getting something naughty to eat to offset the 'badness' of what I'm eating! lol!

Good plan, hey?

    That's good that you walk to it. I do the same things when I go to lunch at work. My rule is to never drive!

A Productive Day at Home!

Thursday, July 07, 2011

I had a fitful night last night, for some reason, I just couldn't sleep. I got up 3 times, went on SP, read a lot of Anne of Green Gables and finally nodded off around 5am. As a result, I woke up a little after 12 noon.

By that time, my Mom had already sent my brother to work (afternoon shift) and reached the mall, without me. "Oh well!", I thought, "at least I'll be able to save some money by not being in the mall".

I was on SP, racking up SparkPoints (isn't it fun!?), when I remembered the laundry my Mom had called me about earlier in the afternoon. So, I hung out the laundry for my family (parents & brother; I do my own laundry separately). It was a LOT of laundry but I went to work with a will and was done in less than 30 minutes. I wasn't exactly timing myself so I'm not sure exactly how long I took but it seems to me it was less than 30 minutes.

Then, I decided to reorganize my closet. I ended up 4 piles of clothes that I'm not likely to wear ever again but I'm sure some needy person somewhere would be very happy to get them. In fact, I have some more high waist jeans but I'm not getting rid of them yet as they have interesting details like embroidery or beads on them. I'll have to see, if I don't were them for another 6 months, out they go!

I think it's amazing how much stuff, especially clothes we accumulate as we go along life in this world! Fashions come and go and we're left with unwanted clothes!

I'll tackle the 2 baskets of laundry and my hanging wardrobe next. But not today! I'm plain tuckered out!

I wonder when I'll ever finish it!

Tuesday, July 05, 2011

I'm still doing my big cross-stitch project. There's a little bit more to do but it seems to be taking forever. It's like a little patch here and there in all different colors. Complicated and tedious.

Plus I don't sew constantly, I only sew when I have a mood to sew. I will take a picture and post it once it's all done. When that distant day comes........sigh!

    I started a cross stitch picture so many years ago, I'm surprised the fabric holds itself together. Every once in a while (less often now) I pick it up and dream of finishing it. It takes forever to figure out where I left off and what mistake made me put it down. I've even offered other people money to finish it for me, but alas no takers. I don't want to part with it anyway. I really want it on my wall. I have pulled it out where I can see it every once in a while again. Who knows? Maybe the mood will swing my way again, too:) I hope to see your picture!

    Take your time so when it's done, it's something you can be proud of, especially if it is very complex

  I bet that when the piece is done, it will be just beautiful and well worth the effort- just like the Spark People program. emoticon emoticonDebi T.

Honestly.........

Sunday, July 03, 2011

First off, my Mom keeps saying I'm fat even though I'm only 123lbs and short (4feet11), then my Dad keeps saying that I eat like a pig.

I mean, honestly, I've been tracking my food most days and most of the time I'm under my calorie goal! No wonder I'm still hungry at the end of the day. And I make sure that my late night snacks are healthy like vegie soup and oatmeal without sugar, with a smidgen of low-fat milk.

Just because my Father happens to notice me when I'm eating doesn't mean that I spend the whole day eating or overeat. He just happens to see me eating, that's all. Today, he said that all I ever think about is food when he saw me slowly eating a hot bowl of clear vegie soup!

Hey! Does he know that I didn't even have a proper dinner today because I couldn't bring myself to eat what my Mom cooked today (I'm very sensitive to pork fat, makes me throw up!), which was rice all mixed up with fatty pork and mushrooms!

I mean honestly, sometimes I just feel like running a knife thru my midsection, the way the Japanese commit suicide and leave a note saying : "All you've ever done when I was alive was pick on me! I hope you're happy now!"

    My parents have been the same way over the years so I know how you feel. They will point out that I'm getting a little chubby or make a comment when I'm eating a snack like "Your eating again? You just ate."

And the thing is, they aren't the fittest people either.

Don't let it get to you too much. They probably don't even think of it when they say it.

    emoticonKeep up the good calorie counting. Are they blind!!! emoticonbut I wouldn't even let that bother me. I know it get bothersome. But try not to let it get to you especially when you know none of it is true. Helllllllllloooooo.

Have a emoticon week and be encouraged. Take good care.

    Hope things get better for you soon. Try not to go under on your calories and try your best not to let what they say get to you. You know you're doing what is right and you just need to believe in yourself. Hang in there!

I managed to save RM100 today!

Saturday, July 02, 2011

Remember I told you about that beautiful white dress? Well, I decided not to get it after all as it wasn't a perfect fit and I can't afford to spend RM100 right now. Instead I got a pair of security shorts (to wear with mini skirts) and a short tube (to wear with low-cut dresses/blouses). It only cost me RM30 in total (RM15 for each item).

I'm so happy that I managed to get 2 useful additions to my wardrobe without spending a ton of money. Maybe with the money I've saved I get that Bobbi Brown lip gloss later!

Yeah, the white dress was nice but it wasn't perfect and was way beyond my budget. And I don't need a dinner dress at the moment. Besides I already have a very good and fancy dinner dress hanging in my wardrobe. I've only worn it once to someone's wedding. I'm actually itching to wear it again, only I have no more dinners to go to atm.......

Now that dress was a perfect fit. And now I actually regret I didn't get my designer jeans a size smaller, coz it's a little loose now......sigh!

    That's good that you were able to resist to buy the dress.
