I neglected to weigh myself during the weekend, foolishly assuming that I was within range. When I finally did weigh myself, it was "OMG! I put on 4.6kgs!" (I'm a dialysis patient). The maximum that they extract in the dialysis centre I go to is 4kgs. So, after treatment today, I still owe the machine 400grammes!
Well, I seldom owe weight to the machine and I've had worse before. Still, it was a little disappointing after a stellar record of being a little below my target weight which is 56kgs.
I'm still trying to go down to 50kgs but somehow, my body's been very stubborn! Guess I'll have to up the exercise and cut the food a little. I've been eating too much lately............

I bought a little 500ml tub of sweet corn ice-cream today, I really shouldn't have but I just felt like I wanted sweet corn ice-cream all of a sudden and it was super cheap! RM2.75!
I just had 2 wee little tablespoons and I had to be content with that. I saved the rest for another day (or several other days, to be exact). I went to the evening church service today at 6pm. After church, I went to the small mall next to the train station (kinda like a subway above ground). I went to my favorite Korean restaurant and had a small order of Kimchi and a big glass of iced-water, heavy on the ice.
Last week, I had soft-serve yoghurt with toasted almond slivers! Actually, I had it twice last week or so. I'll have to watch my diet more closely now. I still need to lose about 6kg. So, no more food treats, or at least, sticking to very small servings of treats, or sharing them with my Mom.......actually, that's not such a good idea either as my Mom is mildly diabetic; but she loves that particular frozen soft-serve yoghurt and so do I! The yoghurt shop is called Tutti Frutti, I wonder if there are any where you live.
It's really fun to go to Tutti Fruitti! You take a paper cup (that they provide), pump as much frozen yoghurt as you like (they have many flavours), then put whatever toppings you like, then they weigh it and charge you. It's pretty expensive, that's why I don't go more often.
Ice-cream is way cheaper but the yoghurt is healthier.........oh well.............

A new hair salon has opened where I live. It's one of those air-conditioned fancy ones. I've been going to my regular hairdresser for years. It's slightly further than the new one but still within walking distance.
My regular hairdresser only charges me RM10 per haircut. The new place charges RM65. I've been weighing the matter in my mind. The cheaper place gives quite a good trim for a lower price. I just don't see why I should change hairdressers.
So, I've decided to stick to my regular hairdresser and use the money I save to buy something non-perishable like a new handbag!

I haven't reached any weight loss goals yet. In fact, my old mini skirt is tighter but I already have 2 rewards that I'm itching to get. A RM72 Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss and a RM169.90 Esprit Handbag.
The lip gloss is such a nice colour, it matches my complexion so well and the handbag is a real woman's handbag, I look so stylish and mature carrying it (I hung in on one shoulder in front of the store mirror.
ARRRRGGGHHHH! This is killing me. I don't even have a full-time job, only a disability pension which I need to pay my for my meds but I keep having these desires for high-priced goods!
My Mom says "enjoy yourself while you're still alive as you never know what will happen tomorrow", meaning, my mortality is higher than the average healthy person, so I might as well go out of this world enjoying myself.
All I know is, I get RM55 for pocket money a week. And it's so hard to save from that to grow a little 'secret stash' to buy the stuff I like but this lip gloss and handbag alone will cost more than RM200! That will seriously deplete my secret stash!
What do I do? Should I just forget it because I can't really afford them?!

I woke up this afternoon around 1.30pm. I was very tired after the late night last night. I finally managed to fall asleep after 2am. I don't know why I could get to sleep last night, I went to bed around 12midnight but I couldn't drop off.
Actually I was chatting online with an old school friend and she was telling me her problems. I promised her I would include her plight in my night-time prayers. At first I couldn't sleep in peace, and I was wondering why, then I remembered I was supposed to pray for her, so I got up, switched on the lights and prayed.
I felt better and at peace after that, but I still wasn't sleepy, I read some chapters off an Anne of Windy Willows, and had a light snack (Oatmeal and toast), then finally I could sleep.
When I got up this afternoon, I was really hungry and felt like pizza, so I ordered 2 regular pizzas from the new pizza parlour in Malaysia called Papa John's. And no, I didn't finish the whole lot! I know that in the US they're not exactly new but they're new here! I loved the little peppers included with the pizzas. I wish they'd given me more. I shared the pizzas with my family.
However, I won't be ordering from them anymore, they were soooo salty! But I may dine in just to get at those little peppers! lol!
