I think I definitely overate yesterday but it was soooo delish!!!!

Friday, August 17, 2012

I ordered the celery beef set at a Vietnamese restaurant yesterday. I was spending some quality time with my Mom but I had to pay for my own meal. My Mom also ordered a serving of beef salad which came with lots of very thin carrot slices and chopped bird's eye chillies. She also ordered a serving of vegetarian noodles.

We both came away from the restaurant very full! lol! But we didn't clean our plates. The celery beef was already plenty of protein so I didn't eat my fried egg. I really like the spring roll that came with the set but the skin was a little tough. I also didn't finish my chicken soup because it was tasteless.

But the celery beef was absolutely delish! A little oily but delish! The beef salad was nice too but a little on the sweet side.

Strangely, later that night, I got hungry again and had a light snack. I think I definitely overate yesterday.........

    I love Vietnamese food too! I think you did not overeat because Vietnamese food usually comes with lots of vegetables in it. Yes, it has protein too. If you did not eat too much of the noodles or rice, I do not think you ate too much.

I think I may really have pulled something!

Wednesday, August 15, 2012

My thighs still ache quite bad when I go in and out of the car. My left shoulder aches too and I can hardly reach my right shoulder when taking a shower. I've decided to really cut back on the challenging Pilates workouts and just stick to gentle walks till I recover. I think I'll be taking a break of a week or two.

I hope my muscles will recover by then!

  Pulled right calf muscle running Thursday. I did the RICE routine and have tried to take easy. Still hurts. Ugh. Three steps forward, two steps back!

    Did your doctor straighten your chemistries out that were out of balance and supposedly causing you the pain? Maybe that is still a problem. Take care and hope you feel better soon.

Sad that the Olympics for 2012 are over!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I wish I had 6 pairs of eyes , 6 TVs and 6 heads! That way I could have followed as much as the Olympics as I could! I really enjoyed the Rhythmic Gymnastics, Gymnastics, Synchronized Swimming, Diving, and Equestarian events! It's amazing what human bodies can do with the proper training! What's even more amazing is to get another creature to obey you with the slightest touch like those horses in the Equestarian events! Amazing!

I wish I could have a horse! I love horses! I especially enjoyed the dressage events! Dancing Horsies!

I wish I lived in a 'craftier' country!

Sunday, August 12, 2012

I was thinking of buying this beautiful ribbon embriodery pattern book but I've now decided against it because of the limited colours available here. Only one shop I know of sells the materials and she only has a few colours.

I was thinking how nice it would be to live in a place like London or somewhere in the US where these crafts are more popular and I'll no difficulty sourcing for materials.

I did buy a bullion embriodery book some time ago. Again, the needles are very hard to come by but the thread, no problem. So far, I've broken a few needles sewing, that's why I haven't done any bullion embriodery yet, for fear of breaking my needles. I have 2 longer needles for more strands and 2 shorter ones for less strands, that's all, but even the shorter bullion needles are longer than the average cross-stitch needles.

I'll have to find a new source of bullion needles before I start anything. In case I break any more needles! At the moment I'm crocheting a lacy shawl. So far I've done just 3 motifs. I just love needlework! I'm also planning to learn how to knit, but the needles are v. costly! Oh well, one thing at a time!

    I like the end products but me doing them, I don't think I have patience to do the sewing, the bunching-cloth-technique-for-dresse
s (smocking, i think) or those tricky thing you can do with special needles and threads.

I think we can get lots of books on how-to here in Malaysia but getting the materials is hard, even harder at my place!

Perhaps you can do needlework more while on rest from exercises, just to make your mind off from not able to do workouts :D

    I agree w/ COUPONS comment below about having your supplies special ordered. Or else go onli8ne. Why deny yourself the pleasure of crafting achievements when the supplies can be made available to you? Where there's a will, there's a way! emoticon

    I'm lucky that we have a few places to get supplies. I haven't done that kind of work for a long time kind a wish I could get back to it. You can find in the book a maile order supply or go on line and order your suppies. good luck and the shaw sounds pretty! Lucinda

    *hugs* I love doing crafty stuff like that, but I never get the time to do it. Maybe ask one of your friends in the US to buy you stuff and send them to you? I think as long as you pay them, one of your friends here would do that for you. Just a thought.

    Have you spoke with the shop owner that stocks some of the items you use? Perhaps if you tell her/him what you need she/he could add your items to the next order, that way they wouldn't order things that sat in the shop, would help with their order minimums and keep a customer happy, plus make a guaranteed sale.

OH! My Body aches!

Saturday, August 11, 2012

I suspect it's my joints : that is my bones themselves! I couldn't do as much Pilates as I would have liked today. I did 15 minutes but had to stop! I ache so bad! I couldn't even manage some of the moves. I think I'll take a break today. I wanted to do some cardio but the weather was just soooo hot! It was boiling! I had to hide in my air-conditioned room! I watched some Korean drama online instead, and before I knew it, it was dark out.

I'll see of I can do some cardio tomorrow!

    That's good, take a rest instead of continue pushing yourself while still in pain. Don't exert yourself too much or the situation might get worst!

LUCINDARW 8/11/2012 3:55PM

    When you are in alot of pain it's good to rest for awhile and heal. When you push yourself in exercise there might be a little pain not severe though it's good you rested. Lucinda
