Good Friday Service

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I have never, even as a Christian, gone to a Good Friday service until yesterday. In fact, I was feeling a little unwell after dialysis but I prayed for God's healing touch, so that I can go to church for the Good Friday service. And God answered.

Even though, I felt a little giddy each time I stood up to sing praises to Him, I was well enough to go through the entire service.

I'm also proud of myself this year because I actually managed to complete an Easter meditation reading by the people who produce the Daily Bread. But I've neglected my normal reading. So, maybe I shouldn't rest on my laurels.

Regular Quiet time is something I struggle with.............but at least I attend church and small group meetings.............

    We walk the path to our spiritual "fitness" just as we walk the path to our physical fitness! And each step of the way He is with us. We gain some distance down that path and at times we might sit for a while. Other times we may wander OFF that path only to realize we can turn around and find our way back. Such it is with our health and fitness. Lean on Him to help you down BOTH paths.....you'll get there....have a blessed Easter.

I had a fab haircut today!

Thursday, April 05, 2012

My head feels so light already! My hairdresser layered my hair so it wasn't so heavy at the bottom. The bad news is, I can't make a bun anymore because I have lost some volume & length. The good news is, I'm loving the new cut and my hair is very tidy and neat looking now.

I can't afford to perm my hair. So, I'll just settle for a good cut. As for color, I normally do it myself. I will have to wait till my hair gains some length again before I do the fancy stuff again. But I'm happy with my cut. I've decided to grow it longer, so, I'll just have to be patient and wait 6 months before my next trim!

    I'm glad you are happy with the way it turned out. There is nothing worse than hating your haircut. Been there, done that! Enjoy your new hairdo for the spring/summer.

OMG!!!! My triceps are aching today!

Monday, April 02, 2012

If you want the same aches, go to www.youtube.com and search for POP Pilates! The instructor, Cassie Ho, really kicks butt! I would love to have a body like her's! But don't forget the cardio! Pilates alone won't melt off the fat! But it will give you long, lean muscles but no one's going to see them if you have a layer of fat over them!

Oh well, I'm so tired! I think I'll head off to bed now! Bye!

I can't always follow the workouts I do...........

Saturday, March 31, 2012

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%!

    If you could do it with a smile, like the models in the video, then you wouldn't need to buy a video to help you get into shape. (What a vicious circle). Just keep doing whatever you are able to and it will come to you.

  Don't give up as you take one step at a time. Challenge yourself to do just one more or take one more step next time. We've come this far by faith. Before you know it, you'll be like, I need to add another rep, move, step, or lap. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Oh, we all do it, yes! And pushing yourself is one thing but exercise should not hurt! You do not need an injury! Easy does it!
Have a great weekend!

A nice little treat for myself.

Thursday, March 29, 2012

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!

    Those earrings sound super cute. :) Sometimes we need (and deserve) a pick-me-up. I recently bought some new shirts and a dress from Victoria's Secret because things have been pretty stressful lately. Funny how effective retail therapy can sometimes be!
