Sometimes there are too many reps of an exercise that my abs (or whatever body part I'm working) literally cry out for release. I mean, if I ache just a little, I will press on but sometimes, it hurts so bad, you just can't! Please tell me I'm not the only one!
I mean the instructor can do it bcoz she's super fit! But I'm just an ordinary person trying to lose weight and get fit! Oh well, maybe someday.........I'll be able to follow all those tough workouts 100%!

I've been feeling a little down lately with complications with dialysis. Mainly with too much water weight causing my blood pressure to drop, dizziness etc. I basically just wanted a pick me up. Then it occurred to me. I have many earrings, and I also have many hair accessories. But I don't have like a pair of good, small, 'wear everyday' earrings. I do have a pair of diamond and white gold earrings, but it's too expensive for me to chance wearing it too often.
I recalled seeing a trendy pair of white gold dolphin earrings. No diamonds. I went to the mall with my Mom today and with 15 minutes left to spare, I went to the jewellery shop and I spotted them. A pair of cute dolphin shaped earrings. Not too big, not too small. It's cute and appears to have a small diamond but there are no diamonds in this pair. It's just the way it's cut.
I had just enough in my purse to buy it! It's was like RM99. I really wanted it, so I bought it! I'm so happy now! I'm going to wear it starting tomorrow! (I don't wear earrings to bed). I feel like jumping up and down and doing a little jig!

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.............

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!

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!
