Meeting myself halfway!

Friday, January 06, 2012

I really wanted that 2nd piece of fried chicken, but I contented myself with just a little pinch and I gave the rest to my Dad. To fill myself up, I did take a full portion of rice.

We had KFC for dinner today and we ordered a bargain bucket, which means, 6 pieces of fried chicken and 3 portions of rice. I actually wanted some wedges and whipped potato but I told myself that eating a big piece of fried chicken is already a treat enough. And eating the full portion of rice is just to make sure I don't go hungry.

Well, it wasn't exactly the healthiest meal I could have gotten but at least I had like 1.2 pieces of fried chicken rather than 2 full pieces. I have to do a DVD workout tomorrow!

You're on the right track, dear.

Taking small steps is the KEY-
re-learning food, exercise and stress habits.
Small changes until they become habit.
Then onto the next change.

emoticon WE can do it!

BLESSINGS!

Hash Browns!

Thursday, January 05, 2012

I just love hash browns. But going to McD's to get my hash brown fix is expensive. So, I prefer buying frozen hash browns and frying my own, cheaper too!

But you gotta admit, McD's hash browns taste better, you know why? Salt. They season it very well, but too much salt is bad for you, so I prefer frying my own, less salt.

To make sure my belly doesn't grow any bigger, I take a long time to finish a package of 10 hash browns. I only fry one when I have a hash brown craving. That's why I take a long time to go through a package of 10.

You know, if I had no self-control, I would weigh more than 200lbs! As it is, I'm like 130lbs, I think, or 57kgs to be exact. God! I hate my belly roll! I wish I had washboard abs like those fitness models! But does that mean, no more treats? Hmmmm............

    Probably means more exercise, Sweetie! Good you don't have hash browns until you have a craving! Smart too that you don't get hash browns from McDonalds' they also add glucose to theirs to make them so golden brown ... so they are more expensive than just the dollar amount!
Have a blessed day!

A new addiction!

Wednesday, January 04, 2012

I just LOVE!, LOVE!, LOVE! the spiced fried chicken at the cafe near the dialysis center! But as I'm there 3 times a week, I have to control myself and only have it once a week because I have to watch my protein/phosphate intake!

It's hard to describe the taste, it's definitely got ginger, but I don't know about the other spices which may be a good thing, coz I'll be so tempted to whip it up everyday if I knew! lol!

As it is, this will be my weekly treat, say a nice piece every Wednesday? ;)

I'm so frustrated!

Tuesday, January 03, 2012

My printer has broken down. I can't print or photocopy anything now. My printer is one of those combo units that can scan, photocopy and print.

The thing is, my printer broke down during the holiday season. So, I couldn't have it fixed right away. I was hoping today, I could have it fixed as I'm free from dialysis today. But my Mom was out, I don't drive because I'm on certain meds.

So, I called my Mom to ask her to give me ride to get it fixed but she refused. I'm very frustrated because she wasn't doing anything important, she was just at her regular haunt playing mah jong!

I felt that she was being very selfish because I need to photocopy some forms to get ready my monthly claims. This is very important, way important than her enjoying herself in her friends' house. She can do that any time! But I need to prepare my claims!

She accused me as being ill-mannered but I wasn't rude at all. I just called her a couple of times and she was so abrupt. She hung up before I could finish, so I had to call her again!

How can a mother be so selfish?! Imagine! Mah jong is more important than something urgent like this! I would understand if she was doing something important but she wasn't! How irresponsible!

    SO SORRY YOU ARE FRUSTRATED, AND HAVE TO RELY ON SOMEONE ELSE FOR YOUR NEEDS. I HOPE IT WAS JUST A BAD DAY AND YOU CAN MOVE ON WITHOUT ADDED STRESS. TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF.

    emoticon Your frustration is understandable.

But mothers (and fathers) are not perfect.

Maybe she has been stressed out lately
and mah jong is her relaxation method.
Who knows.

emoticon forgive her.
And yourself for your negative feelings.

BLESSINGS !

Will I ever get 6 pack abs?

Monday, January 02, 2012

I've been doing cardio whenever I can, even added regular strength training, including crunches, but I still have a belly roll/muffin top! I've been with SP since 2006 but lately, I've gained like 3 kilo, but not all at once, gradually, but why should I gain at all!? Am I doing something wrong?

To make matters worse, I have a huge appetite and I love foods like chips and ice-cream. I do have them occasionally but for the most part, I feel safer not buying them at all.

I'm trying to do everything right but I still can't get down to a healthy BMI! I'm currently having a BMI of 25, I'm aiming to get a BMI of 20. Oh, and also I'd love some 6 pack abs to go along with it!

    WELL, IF YOU HAVE HAD A GAIN AND IT IS NOT JUST TEMPORARY, I AM WONDERING IF YOU NEED TO TRACK METICULOUSLY AND MEASURE AGAIN. IT IS EASY TO GET LAX AND NOT REALIZE WE TAKE IN MORE THAN WE THINK. AND FOR THE CHIPS AND ICE CREAM ESPECIALLY. HAVE YOU TRIED FROZEN YOGURT OR LOWER FAT ICE CREAM? FOR CHIPS, HAVE YOU TRIED BAKED LAYS? OR MY FAVORITE IS POP CHIPS (BBQ AND SALT & I PEPPER FLAVORS). I HAVE TO THINK THAT IS WHERE IT MAY BE FROM. I ALSO WONDER IF YOU ARE TRYING FOR A BMI THAT IS TO LOW? DID YOU CHECK IT OUT ON SPARKPEOPLE BMI CALCULATOR? ALSO, MUFFIN TOP MIGHT REQUIRE A SPECIFIC SPOT EXERCISE YOU NEED TO DO TO IMPROVE...CHECK IT OUT IN THE EXERCISE SECTION.
I GIVE YOU SUCH CREDIT FOR BEING HERE SO LONG, YOU HAVE A TRUE COMMITMENT.
I WISH YOU BEST WISHES AND CONTINUED SUCCESS.
