I'm now a forum moderator!

Sunday, November 07, 2010

at work. And I'm getting paid! Isn't that cool? Some forums don't pay.

Please pray for me that I will excel in it so I can get paid more and maybe even be part of the web team in the future.

    Unfortunately, I have now left that job and I guess moderating that forum is out of the question now as I can't face my ex-boss anymore. She kept insulting me several times a day towards the end of 2010. I am now looking for work. I would actually like some online work but all I've found seem to scams as they require payment up front.

Any recommendations anyone?

Help! I'm fat!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Well, even though I've stopped taking steroids for a few years, my face is still as round as ever.

I just saw a recent photo of myself and I nearly fainted! I'm soooo fat and my face is as round as a frying pan!

That's it! time to get tough with myself! No more desserts, chips, fast food or fried foods! That's my problem! I eat too much and I love most food, especially the unhealthy ones!

FYI, I don't look like that pic I have of myself on my SparkPage. My face is way rounder now! I'm so ashamed of myself!

    I think you need to love yourself enough to treat your temple with reverence. Being ashamed and harsh with yourself doesn't help. Treat yourself as you would treat an overweight friend, with kindness and patience.

Think about making a small change such as eating more veggies and fruits. After you are comfortable with that, go on to another change. Take baby steps towards a healthier life. Try not to change everything all at once lest you get overwhelmed and give up.

Please,please talk to yourself as you would your dearest friend! Take care of yourself.

    Last month I went over to my friends house, and her mom took a photo of us(which I was not expecting) and a couple of weeks ago she gave me a cope. I think my eyes came out of my head. Not only was my face as round as a frying pan but I was just so fat in the picture I couldn't believe my eyes. And then I thought to myself is this what people see when they look at me. Talk about feeling ashamed. emoticon

Exercising when I can.....

Thursday, October 21, 2010

Hi, all!

Well, I haven't been v. consistent with the exercise but I do try to exercise whenever I can.

I don't really use the sp tool for recording exercise coz it's not very specific to what exercise I do. I've been walking when the whether is cooler, like after 6.30pm. I will walk about 30 to 45 minutes.

I don't always walk briskly though. Sometimes I just stroll to enjoy the breeze. We've been having a lot of rain in Malaysia lately, so it's nice to walk before and after the rain, it's cooler. We've also been having a heat wave whenever it isn't raining.

I'm quite lazy when it comes to weight training though. Mostly, I do a variety of crunches and philates exercises coz my problem area is my tummy. I have such a huge spare tyre there, you wouldn't believe!

Well, I guess I'll just have to continue pushing myself and disciplining myself to exercise daily!

Just bought a new exercise DVD

Saturday, March 27, 2010

Latin dance cardio in 5 ten minute workouts. Now, if only I can get 10 minutes a day to exercise, it'll be a good start!

    Is that the 10 minute workout DVDs? Have you managed to fit the ten minutes in?

Irregular exercise

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Well, what can I say? I love food but I don't really like to exercise. One week, I'm disciplined, the next I'm not. I guess I really should put my back into it.

Maybe it's because I'm a dialysis patient that I need so much sleep. Plus the fact that I'm a night owl, not a morning person. Well, I pray that I'll make it this week, after all, it's only Tuesday, wish me luck and pray for me!

    I feel for you. I just got over 2 years of illness & I had to gradually add exercise to my daily tasks. Just go slowly, get as much rest as possible, and add exercise in 15 minute intervals so your body gets used to it. Good luck with your health and weight loss.

    It's hard when you need the sleep; I am suffering through fatigue at this time also because of health problems. I think when our bodies really need the sleep, it's more important to rest and then worry about the exercise.

    I'm with you on the exercise, it's been harder since I've been under more stress lately (and the exercise would actually manage the stress if I'd do it.)

I wish you the best of luck with your health as well as the consistent exercise. If you have a good neighborhood or a park or mall nearby, maybe just a walk in the spring weather will help motivate you. I'm using my garden as the motivator this spring.
