Sometimes, racking up sparkpoints, tracking my food and exercise is fun, especially if I really pushed myself to do it. But sometimes, I just don't feel like it. I wanted to go for a walk after dialysis this evening, but I logged on the SP and suddenly I feel so blah. I didn't make it for my walk but then I usually feel a little unwell after dialysis.
That's why I made a decision to get my walk in early in the mornings on the days I have dialysis. But so far I haven't been successful in waking up early. I did go for a walk on Monday morning. Did some strength training and walking on Tuesday evening. It's Wednesday now and I didn't exercise. I will make it a point to make tomorrow better........

Well, after I spent quite a lot of money on necessities last week (pantyliners, shower cream, cheap perfume and frozen yoghurt : okay, this may not be a necessity ;) ), I decided to stay home today instead of gadding over to the neighborhood mall, where I'm sure to find a little knick knack to buy (I always do!).
Well, I did my laundry, it's dry now, I will be collecting it after this. I also resisted the urge to walk to the shops nearby for stuff to eat. My Mom only left some tuna sandwiches for lunch, somehow, that didn't really appeal to me, but I ate it anyway.
Thankfully, there was stuff to eat in the house, like Chinese Molasses Cookies and the little tub of sweet corn flavored ice-cream I bought the other day. Incidentaly, it's cheap ice-cream, I often wonder what's the difference between Hagen Daz or Baskin Robins and local cheap ice-cream. I find the cheap ones just as good. I dunno, I still see a lot of ppl paying a LOT for luxury ice-cream.
But then I too pay a lot for soft-serve frozen yoghurt, so maybe I shouldn't talk. Well, I did some strength-training exercises and got in an hour's walk in the evening. And I just finished a nice dinner of fried fish with bird's eye chilli in soy sauce and freshly squeezed lime juice (yuuuummmmm!), chinese green stir-fried vegies, egg tofu and rice.
I'm going to do some cross-stitch after this. On the whole a quiet, but productive day! And I didn't spend a cent!

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!
