A lazy weekend!

Sunday, July 01, 2012

I didn't exercise much this weekend. Just walked mostly. My thighs are still aching. So are my arms. When I squart down on the floor or when I sit on the floor, it's very hard to get up. I find it painful to descend the stairs too. I used to find it painful to ascend the stairs too but thankfully this time round, it wasn't so bad...........

Still, I wonder how fitness instructors can do what they do without aching all over like me.........

    Your muscles are aching because they aren't used to an activity, or the activity is more strenuous than usual. When fitness instructors first start out, they do ache, but the more they do the exercises, the more work they have to do to have the exercises "burn".

The only way to not hurt after exercise is to get REALLY good at the same exercises! :)

Putting everything in moderation into practice!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

I only had a small bowl of fried rice and a cup of hazelnut coffee as soon as I woke up at noon (hey! it's Saturday!). So, understandably, I was super hungry by the time 4pm rolled around. I was watching a movie around 2pm and surfing the net before and after my movie.

I decided to fry some fish and chicken nuggets, I felt a need for some. The old me would have gobbled up as many as I could. But I decided on a reasonable portion : 3 of each, that would equal 6 nuggets, which is a reasonable portion. So, I fried them up and now I'm satiated. Who says you have to stuff your face to be satisfied?

Ever since I started watching my portions, I've been satisfied with eating less. And with regular exercise, I've actually been gaining weight, but it's all muscle as many people have been commenting that I look slimmer! So, don't go by the number of the scale alone!

    That is so true! Most of the time, the right portion does it.

Gosh! I'm aching all over!!!!

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Can you believe that exercising with 2 paper plates could be such torture?! blogilates.com/bikini-blaster-series Check out Bikini Blaster 3, that's the workout that tortures you with paper plates! I couldn't even complete all the reps, they were soooo intense!

I tried doing it last night, and my arms & thighs are still sore today. So, I decided to work my arms today! I wish I could afford some valslides though. But paper plates work just fine too, surprisingly.

I'm so glad I found Cassey's workouts! I've been sore for months now because I've been doing her workouts regularly!

    I used paper plates, too, when I did a workout from Shape magazine. Then someone took my plates, I hope they didn't use them for eating!

Check out ZWOW in youtube, those workouts are crazy intense, even though in the videos, the exercises look easy LOL

Exercised to an old favorite!

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

I dusted off my old Jane Fonda Abs, Buns & Thighs VCD and did one 25 minute workout! I was sweating profusely. Her workouts are so effective! I'm planning to do the 2nd workout on Thursday! I wish it were a DVD though, then I don't have to keep pressing the forward button to get to the 2nd workout!

It feels so good to have accomplished a good dose of exercise!

Wouldn't it be nice to be rich!

Monday, June 25, 2012

I went window shopping after church on Sunday. I saw some very nice watches. I spent almost the entire 4 hours of dialysis today making my decision which watch to purchase. I've settled on a nice bangle type decorative one. I will post pics of it on my Sparkpage after I've bought it!

Wouldn't it be nice to be so rich that I can buy more than one watch. I also have to save money to buy materials to learn to knit my own blouse! That will mean another delay as I try to save enough for them!

Wouldn't it be nice to be so rich that I don't have to scrimp and save and worry so much!

    Our ideas of being rich differ so much. You'd like money to buy more than one watch and materials for a blouse. My idea is going to the grocery store and shopping without looking at the prices. Perhaps it is because we are content in our lives that our wants are so small. In our own way, we are rich!

    I grew up very poor and most of my life was just happy to have enough to make it until the next paycheck.
I always thought IF I were rich that I would be very generous. But I think most poor people feel that way.
Rich people are usually NOT. That's why they are rich. emoticon

    While it might be nice to be rich (I think we all have that thought once in a while), there are definitely down-sides to it:

If you could buy any watch you wanted on a whimsy, would you have the joy of carefully considering which you really really wanted and valuing it?

If you had more money than you needed, would you be able to trust that new friends cared about you and not about what you could give them?

We are richest when we appreciate what we have - not when we can have whatever we want and then fail to appreciate it as we want more.
