Let's get Dancin'!!!!

Sunday, March 18, 2012

I did my Cardio Ballroom workout again today! I got quite sweaty and winded. I may not be perfectly coordinated as the DVD instructor but the point of the workout is to get sweaty and burn calories, right?!

I feel so good! I'll have to remind myself how good if feels to have done a DVD workout every time I feel lazy and reluctant to exercise!

I will alternate between cardio and pilates! I love pilates too! I'm always a little sore after pilates, it really works the whole body! And I've had comments that I look slimmer even though I haven't lost any weight on the scale!

I feel so tired today!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

I just came back from dialysis. I was supposed to have it yesterday but there was a power failure! So the nurses sent us all home. But the power came back the moment I arrived home! ARRGGGGHHH!

Well I had to come today (Saturday) to make up for it. I was really heavy today. And I went home with an excess weight of 300 grams. I will have to watch it from now on so I don't go overboard and hurt my health.

My next treatment is on Monday. I'm so tired right now that I'm contemplating missing church tomorrow.............

Easter Treats!

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I spent the day at the mall with my Singaporean relations. My aunt, my cousin, her husband, and 2 little kids : a 4 year old boy and a 7 year old girl.

I saw the Easter chocolate section and they are already selling Easter special chocs! I bought a small bag of mini caramel eggs (my favorite!), and I plan to eat them slowly. I don't plan on buying a lot of Easter chocolate. This will probably be my only Easter treat.

I decided to share the joy. By giving the 2 little kids a mini caramel egg each. There's 8 in the bag, that's leaves 6 for yours truly! lol! My Singaporean relations are on their way home now. I passed the eggs to my cousin (their Mom) with instructions to only give it to them when they arrive home and after being in the fridge for a while so they won't be so messy.

I've also decided to do the daily bread Easter devotions this year! I'm on week 1 day 3 today! I plan on completing all 4 weeks of devotions Easter this year!

    I used to love those caramel eggs growing up, but now they seem too sickly sweet.

I finally did it today!

Tuesday, March 13, 2012

I bit the bullet today and made myself do a 50 minute pilates workout! Now I feel so stretched and relaxed! I feel so good! Especially after a bath after the workout!

This feels so great that I'm beginning to wonder what's wrong with me for being so reluctant to exercise these few weeks!? True, my right knee is still twinging but I can always do pilates instead of dancing or aerobics!

From now on, I'll make myself exercise regularly and consistently! There! I said it! Now there's no turning back!

If you are like me, I get a bad case
of the LAZIES ! emoticon

Since I joined the 10 minute team,
it was been easier to do SOMETHING
for a mere 10 mins.
Often, I end up going further.
It helps to keep that 10-min streak going

emoticon WE can do it!

    Great job! Also, check out Nichole's 15 minute office workout. I do it two or three times a day - and it's great, low impact, no equipment (no clothes change or shower required.) God bless . . . emoticon

    You are inspiring. I'm going back to spin class tonight. I know I will feel better afterwards. It's just breaking the initial inertia.

Why don't I see it?

Sunday, March 11, 2012

A few people have told me that I'm pretty but I just don't see it. When I look in the mirror, sometimes I think I'm ugly, sometimes I think I'm ok looking. I depends on the lighting, my mood etc. But I never think I'm pretty.

So, do I have self-esteem issues? Or am I ugly?

    You are very pretty from what we can see. I am not sure how much you photoshopped your picture, but your features still seem very pretty, even if you had not photoshopped.

    Actually, my picture has already been photoshoped. I actually have scars from acne. Not a lot but still noticeable!

    I think we are all our own worst critics and we question our attractiveness. And as one person commented, we compare ourselves to actors and models who have makeup artists, plastic surgery, and air brushed photography! And why do you think models are paid thousands...they are exceptional!
You look so pretty...and even if that is an exceptional picture...you are NOT ugly!
Do you have a self esteem issue? Only if you dwell on it, are sad/depressed over it or avoid life because you are "ugly"!
Have a good week! emoticon

    You are your own worst critic! All the photoshopped media and celebrities enhanced with plastic surgery have given us unrealistic expectations for beauty. It causes us to focus on all the things we don't like about ourselves instead of the things we do like.

For what it's worth, I think you're pretty. You probably do have some self-esteem issues if you think otherwise! In any case, you're definitely not ugly in any sense of the word!

    Your photo is absolutely striking. You have beautiful skin and striking features. You are very pretty, no doubt about it!

    Sometimes I think I am and other times I'm not. It all depends on what I'm wearing and my state of mind.

    Most people don't find themselves very pretty or handsome. This is because you are used to your image in the mirror. Try it after you get some professional make-up. You will think that you are way pretty. But over time, you can even get used to that same "way pretty" look, and it won't provoke the same feelings in you.
