I'm just posting this to motivate myself to do it.......I'm holding myself accountable to you friends!.........

A Nice Day Out!

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I woke up around 11am this morning. I was pretty tired after yesterday's dialysis. Around 12pm, I had my lunch, some rice and half a fried fish with chilli slices in soy sauce with freshly squeezed lime juice.

Around 2pm, I decided to visit my gem of a hairdresser. I wouldn't change my hairdresser for the world! She's cheap (only RM10 for a haircut) and skillful and thorough, what more could you want from a hairdresser! Even the newly opened, fancy-looking, air-conditioned new place can't replace her! I will still return to my regular hairdresser because she's cheap and good.

Ok, maybe she can't do a digital perm but she's got my best interest at heart, recommending that I NOT perm my hair because my current hairstyle suits me! Unlike that new place, with an eye on their profits, recommending that new-fangled digital perm!

Then I went to the Indian restaurant for a quick tea. 2 vadais and a cup of iced ginger tea with milk (with a lot less sugar, you have to specify that!).

After that, I dropped in on the pet store, where I discussed the how & wherefores of keeping guppies and miniature hamsters, unfortunately, when I got home to ask my Dad if I can keep either, no go! :( I had a good time observing the cute little miniature hamsters, puppies & rabbits upstairs, and fresh water & marine tropical fish downstairs.

I spent considerable time in the pet store, after all, if I can't have my own, I can at least have the pleasure of staring at the store's sojourners without the bother of maintaining them! I would LOVE to have a pair of miniature hamsters but my Mom has a deep-seated fear of rodents........oh well! I guess I can always visit the pet store when I long for animal companionship............

On the whole, I nice day out. Right now, I'm sitting here typing this blog with my hair in a shower cap. I decide to end my day with a hair moisturising treatment. I will rinse it after I log off here. Then I'll take a slow walk to enjoy the late evening breeze.

I figured my walk to the hairdresser's, Indian restaurant and pet shop should count as exercise already (about 50 minutes walk in total). After I rinse my hair, I'll just go for a little stroll to enjoy the breeze, then it's back to SP to enter my food tracker. Because if I don't go for my walk now, it'll be dark later, it's already almost 7.20pm.

Cya later, SP! I'll be back!

    Glad you had such a pleasant day! I don't like hamsters because they're a little too rodent-like for me, but I have a guinea pig that I LOVE!! Maybe they'll let you have a guinea pig - they're way too round to look like a rodent.

Sometimes I just feel lazy.........

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

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........

    I know how you feel. I try to exercise even if I don't feel like it because I'll feel loads better after I do it!

Quiet Day at Home

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

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!

Goodness Gracious!!!!

Monday, July 25, 2011

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............

    You can do it, Sometimes we have to take a step back and look at what we are really doing.
I find that I need to do so often, because I fall off track and sometimes not even realize it.
So track everything every single day for a couple of weeks to help you get back on track.
I try to do this often and it does help me alot
