A mixed day!

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I woke up today, toke my morning does of meds and supplements, then headed out with my Mom to fill up my monthly prescription. The traffic was horrible but I told myself, I wouldn't let that stress me out and ruin my day. I told myself to be patient and I managed to collect my meds for the next month.

After that, my Mom took me to brunch, it should have been breakfast but as it was about 11am, it was more like a brunch. I was quite hungry by then actually, having headed out of the house without breakfast. But all I had were Java noodles (a noodle dish with thick gravy made with sweet potatoes, garnished with mung bean sprouts, tofu, potato pieces, and half an egg, though I ditched the yolk : medical reasons). I also had half a piece of tofu stuffed with fish paste, 1 fish paste fritter and a piece of fried eggplant stuffed with fish paste.

Then I made a mistake, my Mom bought some fried fritters, I had 2 pieces of the yam ones, I love yam! And when I got home later in the evening, I ate another fritter, this had a sweet chinese paste (I'm not sure what it's made from, the chinese call it annual cake) sandwiched between a piece of sweet potato and a piece of yam.

We went grocery shopping after brunch. And I treated myself to a bit of soft-serve yogurt with sliced mango and rambutan (a Malaysia fruit), cost me RM9 but I loved every spoonful!

I had a very relaxing day on the whole, I finished the 4th Harry Potter book (I read the last few chapters today), then watch the VCD of the 4th Harry Potter movie (for the unintiated : it was called 'Harry Potter & the Goblet of Fire'). Then I went for an hour long brisk, brisk walk! I even sweated a little (I have to let you know, I find it very hard to sweat).

I'm going to continue with my cross-stitching after posting this. I didn't have perfect day but I did have a healthy home-cooked dinner. Oh, my Mom does the cooking, but I'm not complaining, she's a health nut too. lol!

    yup, I love cross-stitch but it's very time consuming, you won't progress much unless you sew for hours and hours.

    It sounds like your day was great, even with all the food! I used to cross-stitch but I haven't done any in years and years and have forgotten most of the stitches. Do you enjoy it?

    I love walking in the neighbourhood park and streets. I live in a quiet area, so traffic is not a big problem. I also like workout DVDs, particularly Philates! But I'm getting bored with my DVD selection, perhaps, I need to get some new DVDs.

    What kind of exercise do you like to do? My favorite is water aerobics, but it's too cold right now. I have a Wii and walking until then.

I'm now a forum moderator!

Sunday, November 07, 2010

at work. And I'm getting paid! Isn't that cool? Some forums don't pay.

Please pray for me that I will excel in it so I can get paid more and maybe even be part of the web team in the future.

    Unfortunately, I have now left that job and I guess moderating that forum is out of the question now as I can't face my ex-boss anymore. She kept insulting me several times a day towards the end of 2010. I am now looking for work. I would actually like some online work but all I've found seem to scams as they require payment up front.

Any recommendations anyone?

Help! I'm fat!

Sunday, October 31, 2010

Well, even though I've stopped taking steroids for a few years, my face is still as round as ever.

I just saw a recent photo of myself and I nearly fainted! I'm soooo fat and my face is as round as a frying pan!

That's it! time to get tough with myself! No more desserts, chips, fast food or fried foods! That's my problem! I eat too much and I love most food, especially the unhealthy ones!

FYI, I don't look like that pic I have of myself on my SparkPage. My face is way rounder now! I'm so ashamed of myself!

    I think you need to love yourself enough to treat your temple with reverence. Being ashamed and harsh with yourself doesn't help. Treat yourself as you would treat an overweight friend, with kindness and patience.

Think about making a small change such as eating more veggies and fruits. After you are comfortable with that, go on to another change. Take baby steps towards a healthier life. Try not to change everything all at once lest you get overwhelmed and give up.

Please,please talk to yourself as you would your dearest friend! Take care of yourself.

    Last month I went over to my friends house, and her mom took a photo of us(which I was not expecting) and a couple of weeks ago she gave me a cope. I think my eyes came out of my head. Not only was my face as round as a frying pan but I was just so fat in the picture I couldn't believe my eyes. And then I thought to myself is this what people see when they look at me. Talk about feeling ashamed. emoticon
