Lovely BBQ dinner yesterday!

Sunday, July 17, 2011

I went to a birthday bbq yesterday! It was delicious! I seldom eat lamb chops but I had 2 small ones yesterday with mint sauce. It was about a serving I guess. I picked the smallest pieces I could find. I also had 2 or 3 chicken wings and a drumstick.

But the soda! I had way too much soda! Oh well! I don't take soda often, and I must say, I really enjoyed to ice-cold sodas yesterday, I had Pepsi Twist and Kickapoo! I just drank whenever I felt slightly thirsty. I know I should have stuck to water but I just couldn't resist.

Oh well, back to healthy eating (and drinking) today!

I Feel Good!

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

I just did a high intensity Denise Austin workout today. I had to pause it to get a drink of water like 12 minutes in. But I had to start all over again so I actually worked out for like 70 minutes instead of 60.

I'll probably ache all over tomorrow but I feel good right now. I feel like I really did something healthy today after weeks of laziness because of the hot whether!

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.
