Of Suppers and Papadoms!

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Well, yesterday (Saturday) was supposed to be a good day. I got one solid hour's worth of brisk walking and I ate healthy that is until the last part of Saturday, slightly before midnight.

At around 10:30pm, I polished off the last of the noodles that my Mom cooked for dinner. It was a small portion so I wasn't too concerned. But at around 11:30pm, my Mom come back from a birthday BBQ with cake (with lovely sweet buttery icing) and more noodles!

Both the noodles and the cake was scrumptious and I just couldn't say no! I scaffed them all down and I had to brush my teeth a total of 3 times that night!

So, yesterday started out fine but ended up bad...... :(

Then today, my Mom cooked Briyani rice (a kind of Indian savoury rice dish) with beef curry and she also fried a whole package of Papadom, a delicious savoury Indian cracker that goes with the rice and stuff. I must say that I have had too many papadoms today! Oh My! And to cap it off, I didn't get much exercise today! So, today was bad too!

    One or two days when you spoil yourself isn't a problem, just don't make a habit of it! emoticon

Eating In vs Eating Out

Saturday, November 12, 2011

I had a burger craving this afternoon, a McD's Big and Tasty Burger craving to be exact. I was alone at home. But instead of walking to the nearest McD's and spending close to RM10, I decided to spend some time lolling around with my mags.

Then, seeing the weather was cloudy with no rain (not hot), I decide to put on my new workout top that I bought at a sale (very good buy), and some bike shorts, and walked briskly for an hour. I did break into a light sweat, that's good, as I don't sweat much as a general rule.

When I let myself into the house, I still had a burger craving, except now, I'm longing for a Starbucks sandwich. As I don't have much spare cash now (it's nearly all in coins, my Dad gets rid of his excess coins by giving it to me, lol!), I decided to mash some a can or sardines in EVOO and chillie oil and make my own sandwich with wheat germ bread and some butterhead lettuce leaves that were left over from Friday's salad.

So, not only did I save some money, but I managed to eat healthy and exercise as well. All in all a very good day!

I'm having a lovely time reading my new books

Friday, November 11, 2011

I also have some books in my library that I haven't read yet. Looks like I'm all set for months! I can't wait to finish reading all my books. Then I'll reread them all over again! I love reading!

I'll still have to set some time aside for my cross-stitching though. I've been neglecting that of late because of all my new books. I'll sew when I'm in the mood to. Right now, I just want to read!

  Needle crafts and reading, always so difficult to choose between them.

I'm so happy with my books!!!!

Thursday, November 10, 2011

I just acquired :

1) How to train your dragon series (books 1 to 7)
2) The lost Hero (book1 of the Heroes of Olympus series, a sister series to the Percy Jackson series)
3) Inheritance (Book 4 of the Eragon series, actually, the series is also called Inheritance but I put Eragon for ease of reference, Poalini fans will know what I'm talking about)

Of course, I had to save up for all these and I didn't get them all at one go, but gradually, week by week when I had some spare cash. I can't wait to read them all!

    Sounds like you're all set for a rainy day. I love to read too. I just bought myself a Kindle (it's great - books are cheaper), but I've found I can get lost so easily in an interesting story, that I started listening to Books on Tape when I run. It's better than listening to music. I can really get lost in the book and suddenly find I've run an extra mile or so.

On a side note. I've read all the Percy Jackson books and just bought the first hero's book. I also read the first Eragon book. Sounds like we have the same taste in books (or something close). Have you read the Dresdan Series or tried, the "So you want to be a Wizard" books. I also like the Devinci Code type of books and read anything by James Rollins, Matthew Reilly, or Lincoln Child & Preston Douglas (Thunderhead is perhaps my all time favorite book).

Well, it was fun talking about books. Good Luck and Good Reading.

Desire is the cause of suffering!

Monday, November 07, 2011

That is a saying by Buddha. I'm a Christian, btw, but I was brought up a Buddhist and I must say that Buddha has a good point. At the moment, I'm itching to buy lot's of material things. And iPad and an iPhone, among them. Don't even get me started on the books I'm longing to get my hands on! Then, there's the clothes, shoes and handbags that most women fall for!

Sometimes, I can spend hours planning how to spend my money, I even plan for next week's money! You get the picture! This has made me feel such discontent that sometimes it interferes with my sleep! I guess I should learn to be contented with the stuff I already have! Then, maybe I won't be suffering so much!

    My ex-husband had the same problem. What a good example of what depression can do to a person's life. I feel very lucky that the need need for things - bigger, better, newer - is not a part of my disorder! I have sympathy for those who have the need. I know it is very real and can become quite debilitating. It robs you of the opportunity to have contentment in your life.
I have no advice for you, but I want to offer what I do have - support! Hang in there and let me know if I can help you in any way.
