New shorts!

Tuesday, July 10, 2012

I got 2 new shorts for a bargain price of RM75! Usually, these sorts of stylish shorts sell for RM49.90 each. When I saw the sign, 2 shorts for RM75 (RM37.50 per shorts), I knew I had to grab it before they sell out my size.

Oh yeah, I'm still a size L because my hips are proportionately bigger. My waist is about 28. I tried them on, and they fit like a dream! Not too tight, not too loose with a bit of breathing room! So, I grabbed them!

But I'll have to cool it with the spending for a while now. Remember that I also bought a dressy watch a few weeks ago (I consider that a major purchase), so, no spending for a few weeks until I build up my 'secret stash'!

And oh yeah! I did a 25 minute Jane Fonda workout today! I feel so good! Bible study later today too!

    It's really hard to strain ourselves when we see good bargain LOL So, the best way is to avoid going to shopping malls or at least, avoid tempting places and especially when there are sales unless I really need to go there to get something.

Anyhow, I think it's ok if you're not crazily spend your money like there's no tomorrow, still save some for future/emergency and not in debt :D

    Good for you! Having the body confidence to wear shorts is great! I'm waiting till I get under 200, and then I'm going to buy a 40's style bikini with the high waist. You rock your shorts, and I will rock my bikini! emoticon emoticon

    You are so blessed to be able to wear shorts! Even though I have reached "thin" now, the skin on my upper thighs still says "No shorts, No way!" I am working very hard to tone that, and my upper arms, so maybe someday I can wear sleeveless tops and shorts again. Last week, it was over 100 degrees here, and there I was, with 3/4 length sleeves and capri pants.

Oh My! My arms were shaking.......

Sunday, July 08, 2012

when I was doing my Pilates plank exercises! I couldn't even complete all the reps! I guess my arms were saying "Enough!". But I did manage to squeeze in like 40 minutes, even though my arms were literally dying! I just worked my abs mostly (my week point with a belly roll!).

I'm just not in the mood for cardio! The haze situation has gotten better but there still a bit of haze outside, which is why I couldn't walk outside. And the weather has been so bad that heavy cardio is just not a good idea. I might get sick or get heatstroke!

    Try find alternative cardio that you can do inside. Have you try Mountain Climbers? How about Low Jacks (similar like Jumping Jacks but lower jump). If there's enough space for a mini trampoline inside your house, that's good idea, too :D Or you can do steps with stairs or just do marching, swinging your arms forward and reverse. There are so many ideas you can do for indoor cardio. I would suggest jump rope but I think last time you said you can't do it because of your condition.

Be smart, be safe during this haze time, I'm lucky that it's the areas at the office, at home it's still good :D

Awesome pilate workout, by the way, WAY TO GO!

    Plank is a great exercise, but hard on the arms. I've done power yoga a couple of days in a row and the upper pushup position (similar to plank) always leaves me knowing what I've done.

Don't overdo anything in bad weather... the weather will always change and then you can do your cardio.

    I get that way where I just don't want to do a certain kind of exercise. I change up my routine often.

Yes, no heatstroke for you! No need to make yourself sick. :) Besides I love Pilates. I see huge changes in my body when I do it consistently.

My arms and shoulders are still sore.........

Saturday, July 07, 2012

so I'm still taking it easy today. Just took a short stroll around the neighborhood. About 30 minutes. I get the feeling that if I do another push-up, my arms can't hold me up anymore. I need to rest my arms and shoulders. It still hurts when I try to scratch the opposite shoulder. Well, I might work my abs tomorrow. My legs, especially the joint from the thighs to the hips (bikini line, I think) hurts too! So no inner thigh work either!

I wonder when will be the day when I'm not so sore with regular exercise!

Walking is GOOD !

Soaking in epsom salts
in hot water for 15-20
mins helps my soreness.

But check with a nurse
or someone before you
try it because of your
medical condition

Have a BLESSED Sabbath

    Could it have something to do with your illness? Try stretching and ice alternating with heat, that might help. Take care - Ruthie

I saved quite a lot of money today!

Thursday, July 05, 2012

Can you believe me and my Mom bought a dozen packets of shower gel refills today?! Crazy, right. But it was on sale and I always use the same brand anyway. So I ended up saving quite a bit. I also bought 2 boxes of Nature Valley roasted almond granola bars and a huge punnet of strawberries (Driscol's from the US)! I also bought a spare bottle of conditioner and a bottle of toner.

It's true that most people spend more during a sale but I needed to get those things anyway! That means I don't have to buy shower gel and other toiletteries for quite some time now! I'm all set! LOL!

    I guess if you use the same product often, then it's ok to spend a bit more, as long as it's still in budget :D

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!

    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.
