Healthier Fish & Hash Browns!

Thursday, August 18, 2011

I felt like eating hash browns and fried fish for lunch today. I decided to try an experiment. I decided to bake the hash browns and fish fillet instead of frying it! That will save countless fat grams!

It took about an hour for the fish to be really cooked and it wasn't as flaky or easy to cut but it was all right, there was still a crispy crust to it. And the hash browns didn't take as long but it didn't taste as good as when they were fried but I'm feeling very good.

I managed to make some junk food not junk food! Lol! I'll be baking my fish and chips or hash browns in the future! It may not taste as good but it's healthier!

Nice Potato Soup!

Wednesday, August 17, 2011

My Mom cooked some nice ABC soup today, which is basically chicken, potato, carrot, onion and tomato clear soup. Most chinese soups are simple like that, but they're so delicious. You need to boil it for some time to get the flavours to meld together though.

My Mom also stir-fried some young ladies finger with dried shrimp. That was yummy too! Also, her wine chicken stew and pork sambal (a kind of tamarind chillie dish) was yummy too! I'm glad my Mom is still around to cook for me!

Went a little over my calories today

Tuesday, August 16, 2011

Too many snacks! Next time, I have to be more mindful of what I eat all the time. Little bites do add up! Maybe that's why my belly roll is still there! Good day for exercise though. I did a philates workout, then a short strength training workout, and then took a little walk in the neighborhood park. It was cool and breezy today. I love today's wheather!

I really need to get serious!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Some people might think I'm at a healthy weight but when I feel my belly roll, I don't think so......... I just feel fat!

So, I really need to push myself to get serious with the exercise. As for the food, I do try to keep to a healthy range whenever possible, but I do have my weaknesses and allow myself a small treat now on then.

My belly roll is so obvious that some ppl have commented I need more crunches. We all know that it's serious cardio I need. Well, I will have to try to squeeze in more exercise DVDs into my week!

    Watching the carbs helps me with that but my roll is still pretty big.

I Give Up!!!

Friday, August 12, 2011

I've been trying and trying to keep my weight down (I'm a dialysis patient, I don't urinate as much as a normal person does) but I keep on having to extract 4kgs or at best 3 point something kgs!

What can I do?! Stop drinking altogether?! The wheather is sooooo hot, I just need my ice-cold water! I love drinking water! I wish I had the problem of hating drinking water! Then I wouldn't be in this predicament.

Fact : drinking more water is good for normal, healthy ppl but NOT for someone like me! I have to keep to 750ml per day and that includes 'other' fluids like fruit or soup. So, in actual fact, I'm only allowed to drink about 300ml water! Who can live on that?!

It's no point living like this! I want to die!

    Wow, I'm so sorry, I don't think I could stand that. What about ice cubes, it would take longer to digest if you ate them one at a time instead of a glass of ice water?

    You are definitely going through some extremely difficult challenges. I have no personal experience with this, however, I have known people who have. Eventually, new treatments and technology resulted in a successful outcome. I am in agreement with the previous statements. I do know that we are never given more than we can handle. I will pray that you find comfort and peace in the loving hands of our Father. emoticon
I wish you a speedy resolution.

    Dialysis is certainly not a fun time. I don't know from personal experience, but I know alot of people who do. The only trick I remember any of them talking about was ice cubes....

My coworker's father sucks on ice cubes all day instead of drinking water... he says it helps and since it keeps his mouth busy, he tends to not think about drinking water.

I agree with REDSHOES2011 ... life IS so flippin unfair at times

    Hey Sweetie, you don't want to die. You are having some difficult times and while I personally am not a dialysis patient, I take care of my Father and he is a dialysis patient. I know of the challenges you are going through. I will pray for you. Meanwhile, please smile.
Hugs to you.
