A Short one!

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Hi, Spark Friends, I will make this blog short becoz I need to get ready for bed soon. I just got back from a fancy dinner in a fancy restaurant to celebrate my younger male cousin's birthday. I might have mentioned him before, he doesn't eat veggies.

Well, I kept my portions to a minimum. I especially like the crispy skin of the roast duck! And the steamed fish! Yum!!! I felt guilty for consuming the sharks fin's soup though but knowing how expensive real sharks fin is, I would think that we didn't get any real shark's fin in the soup (at least, I hope so).

The cake was nice too. And my uncle (my cousin's Dad) footed the bill. I sent him an SMS and called him later to thank him. I should have thanked him there and then but I wasn't feeling too well because I just completed dialysis today, so I forgot.

Oh well, I'm so tired now, I need to read my Bible a bit more, then I'm going to bed or stay up reading. Why, I consumed Chinese Tea during the meal and it's likely that I can't sleep a wink tonight but a reading a nice book sound comforting and relaxing now.............

    I was reading a Christian book on having a fabulous life no matter what. The author shares her experiences, and teaches us how to have a cheerful attitude even if our lives have snags, based on her experiences. It's by Karen Linamen. She's quite humorous.

    Good morning...I love eating duck, too. And steamed fish. Yum. Dinner sounded wonderful. You showed good restraint. I have limited drinking tea and coffee to a minimum. I'm sure you must have enjoyed reading. What were you reading might I ask? I love to read. Have a wonderful morning...

    Actually, being on dialysis is better than having a transplant. If I have a transplant, the meds will cost even more and there will no more financial welfare.

    Sounds like a lovely evening. Love crispy skin of roast duck as well.

Don't know if you are eligible for a kidney transplant. It must be quite difficult at times to always be on dialysis.

Have a good sleep!

I bought 2 new CDs on Friday!

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Andrea Boceli, singing in Italian (I think) with a beautiful tenor (I think, not sure). He has powerful vocals and I could just 'get lost' in the music and his voice if I just put it in the CD player.

I also bought Marie Digby's 3rd (latest) album. I could have downloaded them but I wanted Marie's pretty pictures, so I shelled out the RM49.90 (they were having a sale) for the 2 CDs.

I already converted my fave songs into mp3 to put into my mp3 player, I'll have good time listening to music during dialysis on Monday onwards!

So Far, So Good..........

Saturday, March 24, 2012

Well, I've made a commitment with myself to be more regular and consistent with the exercise and so far, I've done good. I've just completed a Pilates toning workout, it was a little basic but it still really kicked butt. I foresee that I'll be quite sore tomorrow.

My plan is this, do one DVD one day, then rest the next, do another DVD if I'm not to sore 2 days later, then rest another day. If I'm still sore after day 2, I will rest 2 days instead of 1 for my muscles to recover. I might take a long walk on day 2 though, to make it seem that I'm doing something.

This is I think week 2 or 3 and I'm doing good. I will press on! This feels good! The feeling you get after you've done a workout is soooo good! I think I'm learning to like exercise! And that is good!

A question of balance.....

Thursday, March 22, 2012

I know of girls who have 'perfect' bodies. But is having a perfect body worth NEVER having an ice-cream or chips now and then and having to eat like a rabbit ALL the time?

This is a question I ask myself often. But I know myself : I enjoy food; and I know that I will literally DIE if I can't have a burger, chips, ice-cream, pizza, etc. now and then.

I know I still have some weight to lose but I won't hate my body just because it's not perfect. I will continue to exercise and try to keep within my calorie range. But I have to have my occasional treat. Like today, I had an ice-cream (an almond Magnum), then to get some fibre, I had an orange. That's it, no more nibbling on cookies! After all, I still need to control myself. I may not have a perfect BMI, but at least I'm not obese.

I mean having occasional treats is fine but you can't go overboard and binge or nibble all the time. I think I'd rather have a not so perfect BMI than to go through life hungry all the time or wistfully just looking at things I can't eat.

  Hi there! I saw you blog title when I was checking in on the Christians Walking in Faith team I'm also on and it intrigued me to see what you had to say.

I've been struggling with this lately myself. While I acknowledge many have great success by counting calories, must I also do that for my success? I don't know but I'm praying about it.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts!

Advanced Pilates workouts on Youtube!

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

I've discovered some great new Pilates workouts! My Pilates DVDs are pretty basic and easy. I was looking to challenge myself and I found POP Pilates on Youtube. I forgot the trainer's name : Cassey something but her workouts are REALLY tough.

I couldn't even finish all the reps like her! And some of her workouts, I can't even do, but I've downloaded them for the future when I'm more fit!

If you do Pilates, go check it out! Just go to www.youtube.com and search for POP Pilates!
