My Mom's home again!

Monday, May 28, 2012

She went to Singapore last weekend to attend a wedding. She was staying with my Aunt. My Aunt actually came for a short visit last Wednesday, then on Saturday morning, my Mom went back with her (for the wedding).

She just came back tonight. Guess who's been in charge of meals when she was gone, muah! Good thing she left us lots of leftovers to heat up and enjoy. Me and my Dad are not big eaters anyway and my brother always works late, so it's just me and Dad.

I'm so glad she's back! I should have done the laundry when she was away though. My Dad and brother loves changing clothes at all hours of the day during the weekends, it seems....... Plus I have my own laundry to do too! I did keep her plants watered though, bet she'll be pleased!

I'm just so tired now though. Just came back from dialysis. I swear! It takes more and more out of me every time. Soon, I'll be like those old folk who come for treatment (if I live that long).

I really need to discipline myself!

Sunday, May 27, 2012

Lately, I've been munching too much. I need to quit constantly munching when I'm not really hungry! Also, I have to make sure I exercise more! Last week (on Saturday), I stopped exercising for 5 days because my whole body was aching after Tracey Mallet's Booty Barre workout! And I didn't even do all the reps continuously! I couldn't! I found it too strenuous! I had to stop midway many times. But still, my whole body was aching for days, including my back! Even my thighs and calves were aching.

I could have exercised last Thursday but my Aunt from Singapore was here and we ended up spending the day at the mall. We walked a lot though, so it wasn't a total loss. The previous Thursday, I skipped working out because my Mom and I went to the night market (pasar malam). We got lost of fruit! Rambutans, guavas, langsat and plums (I got 6 for RM5! Cool, eh?!).

I'll have to make sure I don't go beyond my calorie limit and I exercise consistently. I did 50 minutes of Pilates today. I love doing Pilates, especially Cassey Ho's Pilates workouts! ( www.blogilates.com ) But I also have to ensure I get my cardio in as well!

I skipped church again today! Too early in the morning for me, I'm just not a morning person! No matter how much I try, I will always be a night-bird that rises at noon! I know! I'm sooooo naughty! lol!

Dear, I know EXACTLY
what you mean !

It seems like I can either
exercise or control my eating
but NOT BOTH !
(and sometimes, NEITHER!)

But that is what Spark and
you Dear Friends are for

We are all in the same boat

Have a Marvelous Monday!

    I, too, munch too much! It had gotten better, but the past week it's been a little worse. Trying to figure out how to curb it.

How I miss my Saturday evening church service! It was the best... so no, I don't really go on Sunday, because it's my one morning to really just get up and relax. I miss that church though (I don't live in that city anymore).

Someone workouts really do do a number on us! Just start back when your ready or maybe toss it a little light yoga....

    Just make sure it's positive discipline. Beating up on ourselves, lecturing ourselves on how wrong we did, does nothing for improving our behavior in the future.

Think about what made things difficult. Getting too sore? Perhaps next time when you're very sore, focus on a simple activity like walking. Getting the blood flowing and using the muscles in a less strenuous manner can actually help ease the soreness. (I know I end up many times more sore if I sit all day rather than move.)

As for church, do they have a later mass / meeting? When I took my kids to go through their communion, we went to an afternoon mass, which was so much easier to coordinate having them ready, dressed, and fed.

Leftovers can be yummy too!

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Right now, there is a big portion of fish curry, some mixed veggies (broccoli, celery & carrots), some french beans with tofu, some chicken and onion omelettes my Mom cooked on Friday and Thursday. She's now in Singapore in my Aunt's apartment. She's attending a wedding on Sunday. She left early this morning by bus. She'll be back on Monday!

Some people think : "Leftovers, ewwww!". But these are very NICE leftovers! Thank God for microwaves, a few minutes, and the leftovers are as good as new! But sometimes I wish my Mom would trust me to do the cooking once in a while though. I love cooking! Still, can't complain, I only have to reheat the leftovers to get a meal! There's also some leftover rice too!

    We too love leftovers. Usually they make it into lunches later in the week.

    I've always enjoyed leftovers. Some foods even taste a little better after the flavors settle together.

    I agree! Leftovers are yummy. I always try to make a little move than what I need and freeze it to be eaten another day. My husband loves them too. Since we aren't always on the same schedule he can help himself to some healthy food at any time.

Hope your Mom has a great time. I love to travel....:).

Good Luck reaching Your Goals!!

Still aching from yesterday's workout.......

Sunday, May 20, 2012

So, I went for a nice little walk instead, chatted with a neighbor too! I'm so happy today because I got myself a new pair of fit flops! Looks like this : www.fitflop.com/view-all-womens/frou

But of course what I got was a factory reject, legit but still a factory reject, so it was like 70% off. A proper fit flop here would cost about RM300, but I got mine for RM150, still pricey but I love my fit flops! I now have 2, one chosen by my Mom and this one chosen by me!

They're so comfy, I just love walking in them, but of course, they won't replace my walking shoes, but they're handy when I'm lazy to put on my socks and walking shoes!

A workout that's too challenging!

Saturday, May 19, 2012

I did Tracey Mallet's The Booty Barre with Arms and Abs for the first time today! I even found the warm-up challenging! I've been doing Pilates from online workouts (Pop Pilates with Cassey Ho : www.blogilates.com ) for I dunno, a few months now. Sometimes, I can't complete all reps with good form but I am getting better.

But The Booty Barre is even MORE challenging. My legs got so tired I had to stop several times. I decided to workout in an air-conditioned room today coz it's waaaaay too hot outside today! I didn't sweat as much, understandably but this is the way to workout! In an air-conditioned room when it's hot outside!!!! lol!

    Do only what you can but if you start to lose form then quit working out because then you may injure your body and that will set you back. Even Sparks tells you that it is better to do good form than doing bad form because you don't get the same results and that it can lead into being injured. So when you know that you are starting to do bad form stop. You just need to build up and do it in proper form.
