I'm in trouble now!!!!

Wednesday, October 12, 2011

I still owe the dialysis machine 700g, that's almost 1Kg! I hope by Friday I'll be back to normal but this means being very watchful tomorrow (Thursday). And don't forget, I'm also trying to weigh less by the end of 2011! I'm now 56.5kgs, I hope to be 50kgs by year end.

I'll do my best but if I don't make it, I'll just keep trying till i do!

I'm determined to beat this!!!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

I don't know what's the matter with me these days! I just don't feel like exercising and I've been drinking like a normal person because of the hot wheater (I'm not supposed to, as I'm on dialysis).

As a result, I've been getting heavier and heavier, even my belly roll is getting bigger......

But you know what? No more! I WILL BEAT THIS!!! I'm going to discipline myself! I'll control my fluid intake and I'll exercise! I'll make a schedule and I'll follow it! No excuses!!! I'll also watch what I eat like a hawk!

    I know it can be hard. I have rough times too! I currently use a pedometer and wear it everyday and it does assist and encourage me to keep moving. You might like to give this a try, Creating a physical schedule will certainly help as well as keeping track of what you are eating. Be sure to reward your self on a regular basis even if its just gold stickers on your schedule. Maybe work towards a bigger reward as you keep it up. Just don't make it food.

iPad blues........

Thursday, October 06, 2011

I'm itching to get an iPad, not the iPad2, thought it looks good atm but an iPad3, so I will have time to save up for one. This is because my parents have acquired a notebook quite recently.

My Dad actually asked for my advice, but at that point of time, we really needed a spare computer (in fact the notebook has been very useful in that). This is because both my Dad and I surf the net a lot and the problem was, there was only one computer, this faithful old desktop.

So, I figured, another computer around wouldn't hurt (an face it, an iPad is not a full computer, still, but it's a lot more portable). So, my parents went ahead and got a notebook.

But now, I began thinking how nice it would be to have an iPad to play with whenever I'm undergoing dialysis (if the new dialysis center [we're moving soon] has WiFi, that is). I thought of lugging the notebook but it's way too heavy and bulky. And don't forget, I only have one arm free when I'm on dialysis. I'm so afraid I might drop the notebook.

I've talked to my Dad, I mean, why can't we have both the notebook and iPad? They have different functions. I guess I'll have to save hard for an iPad3 and get it myself then. How can I persuade my Dad to get an iPad as well..........sigh!


The next blood test is next week!

I'm kinda worried because I haven't been a paragon of control. Though I have been limiting my protein/phosphate intake, I also have been less vigilant than when the doctor first warned me. I'm a dialysis patient and I really have to watch my fluid, phosphate, protein, potassium, calcium & sodium intake.

Yeah! I'm kinda mad with the calcium though. Most ppl are encouraged to take more but because I'm on calcium carbonate for phosphate blocking, I have to lower my calcium intake as well! It isn't fair! Normal ppl are actually encouraged to drink more but I have to limit myself to little sips!

I keep wondering why a good God can allow me to go through all this! I'd give anything to be a normal, average, middle-class, working girl, instead of being a dialysis patient with nothing but a meager disability pension.

    life throws us mad things to test us, unfortunately this is just one of the harder things you have to control in life.
I can't speak from personal experience but i know people who go through dialysis and it's such an unfair thing to have to do but i hope you stay strong and be as on top as you can!

Sometimes I wish I was Japanese!!!!

Tuesday, October 04, 2011

I just love Japanese food! I often wish that I was a Japanese in Japan so I can eat Japanese everyday! Whenever I have spare cash, I will go to my favorite Japanese restaurant in the nearby mall. It's a little pricey though. So I can't go crazy and order excessively. I only order conservatively so the bill won't come to so much.

I wish I had a huge regular paycheck so I can indulge more often and more! Sigh!

    My son is living his dream of studying abroad in Japan right now! Right now he's getting used to the food but by the time his year is up, I'm sure he'll LOVE it, too. emoticon

    I love Japanese food too... I love all kinds of food (maybe that's why I weigh so much lol!). Japanese food is great for you, though, with the tofu and all the fish. Good for you for having healthy indulgences! emoticon

    I wish I spoke Japanese.

I work for a Japanese company. It's common for new employees to be encouraged to try new foods while in Japan that most westerners don't like! Boys will be boys. If I ask what it is, they always tell me it's chicken. emoticon
