Do you think it's worth it?

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

The nearby mall is having a one day members' only sale. I was thinking of going with my Mom to snag some shower gel that's half priced. But sometimes, thinking of the crowds, I'd rather pay full price and shop in comfort. I'm really tempted to go though but's it's a little too late now, it's already 9pm and they close at 10pm.

What do you think? Would you brave the crowds just to save a few dollars?

    If it is really nearby and it is half priced, then it is worth it.

    I don't like shopping in big crowds people can be so rude. If it's only one item not worth it.

    I don't like crowded stores however when we lived in Malaysia one could slip through a crowd without being touched or bumped. I didn't mind standing in line but it would shave to be a really good sale. If it's only one item, maybe it's not worth it.

    I hate shopping any time, but especially during crazy sales. But, I also have a hard time passing up a bargain. If I were going for just one item, I don't think it'd be worth it.

One of my favorite things about the Internet is shopping online!

    No - not worth the trouble if you can't relax and shop around a little.

    If it's me, with just an hour to spare and on worknight, I rather stay at home. If it's weekend, lots of time, I most likely go, hehe. Anyhow, this kind of offer, I'm sure it's not one time only :D

    I avoid long lines. Every time I go to a store the first thing I look for is the waiting line to pay, if there are more than 3 people waiting, I left everything behind and keep going. Or go another day of the week very early in the morning.

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!
