Taking it easy for a while.....

Saturday, July 21, 2012

Because of all those strenuous plank style Pilates exercises I've been doing, my shoulders are still aching. I decided to take it easy and just go for a walk. Before I knew it, I had walked for 40 minutes. It didn't even feel like a long time at all!

I can't even scratch the opposite shoulder because I'm aching too much! Particularly my left shoulder. Every time I try to used my left hand to scratch my right shoulder, it's like "Ow!".

So, no more plank style Pilates till my left shoulder recovers :(

  Sorry about the pain in your shoulder. Walking is a great form of exercise. Sometimes I walk in the pool to burn some extra calories and it helps me with the pain in my joints. emoticon

    Good job on the 40 minute walk. Take it easy with your shoulder. Don't not do anything either it, stretch it some. Like the saying says use it or lose it. Just don't push it hard.

    Definitely take care of yourself. I think you push it too hard when exercising. Take care...... emoticon

    Defiantly rest the shoulder and see a physician if it does not get better.

Rainy and cloudy!

Friday, July 20, 2012

I love the weather now because it's not so hot, as it rains intermittently. It's especially nice and cool after a rainy shower for walking. But it's playing havoc on me and my Mom as we both want to do our laundry but it takes soooo long to dry because of the rainy weather. So, first my Mom's laundry will be in my way. Then mine will be in her's.......sigh! You just can't win!

Either the weather is as hot as an oven but the laundry dries fast. Or the weather can be nice and cool but not so good for drying laundry!

    Maybe you can put your clothes next to a fan (indoors) to help them dry?

Feeling a little ripped off!

Thursday, July 19, 2012

I ordered a seafood soup with rice in a Japanese restaurant. It listed prawns, cod fish, scallops and oysters as its' ingredients on the menu. Turns out it chicken, and was full of tofu. But it only had one single prawn, no oysters, 2 small pieces of cod fish and a teeny tiny scallop!

It was delicious but I felt ripped off as it cost me RM15.80. The rice was nice though.

I ate way too much today and my computer is driving me nuts!

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

Well, it's Tuesday again and I've eaten waaaaay too much! About 500 kCal over, I would guess. I came back quite late from Home Fellowship, watched my Korean Drama. And here I am at the computer hurrying to fit my points for the day within 10 minutes before midnight and it's freezing on me! My computer is driving me nuts!

I love the bigger screen display on this desktop but I seriously have to get more RAM for it as it's as slow as a tortise! Which can be very frustrating if I'm in a hurry! But my Dad bought a notebook which is way more powerful than this desktop but the screen is a pain, imagine scrolling, scrolling and getting imcomplete displays because the screen is too small (especially on this site) Sigh!

    Ah, okay... I don't think eating 1700 calories in a day will hurt your weight loss efforts all that much, if at all. If your range is 1200-1500, then you really only overate by 200 calories anyway.

    If upgrading the RAM doesn't help, you might want to run a virus scan to make sure that it's not one of those. McAffe and Norton are my favourite ones. Were I at home, I could get you the name of the free service I use. Don't trust pop-up ones, though!

    I normally eat 1,200 to 1,500 kCal in a day. Yesterday, I ate like 1,700!

    Don't worry about eatting over your calorie amount just get back on track and have a new start. Sorry about the computer problems mine does the same thing I have answered e-mails, blogs and threads onlu to have everything wiped out when the computer freezes. Very frustrating! Keep at it and you will lose a little along. Lucinda

Korean Drama Craze!!!

Monday, July 16, 2012

Oh! Good Lord! Help me! I've caught the Korean Drama Craze Bug! It all started with my Mom, she's an avid watcher of Korean Dramas. I just sat down one day and watched with her and I was hooked! Now, I can't even bear to miss a single episode!

It doesn't matter that I started watching midway thru the series, I was still hooked! And now I'm looking forward to the next drama on the same channel! It so funny the way my Mom rushes home after picking up my brother from work 5 days a week so she can catch the next episode! But now I've caught the same bug too! Sigh!

    When I was in U, my dad and friends "infected" me, starting with Winter Sonata then all those pirated Korean Movie (Kwong San Woo, yay!) :)
Now, my dad re-infected me again, haha. And there was Winter Sonata anime version, brought all memories and feeling :D

But honestly, I much prefer Japanese anime :D

    Anyone of you watch "The Bold and the Beautiful", I used to be hooked to it, but not anymore. The plot is getting a little silly.

    Just the other day I explored the Korean movie section on Netflix, and wow, they look awesome! I should have known, because back when I read manga, the Korean one's were always the best. :)

Glad you are having fun,and it's so nice that you and your Mom can have some mother-daughter time!
