Haze is now disappearing! Thank God!

Sunday, June 30, 2013

But it's a yearly affair. The forests of Indonesia is cleared yearly without fail by poor farmers who know no other way than clearing a patch of forest and farming. This problem will happen yearly as long as there are poor Indonesian farmers and there are millions of them.

I wonder how we can solve this problem..............

Sad ending for my fave Korean Drama!!!!

Thursday, June 27, 2013

Oh gosh! I'm still soooo sad! But I won't reveal the ending in respect of those people who are still watching the drama. But it's so unfair! I thought love conquers all. Apparently, love is not enough in the old royal Korean palace!

I saw the rest of the episodes online. Now I wish I haven't. I spent 2 days stuck in front of the computer watching it all! I even forwent my exercise sessions just so I can finish watching this drama! Sob!

Well, now that I've seen the ending, I can carry on exercising this weekend.

    LOL at Carol's comment!! Sure true!! I know the feeling of getting stuck on a drama, last week I spend almost 3 days watching 2 seasons of a TV series. They can really hook you in and take up every waking moment !! LOL.

Did some Pilates today!

Saturday, June 22, 2013

But I only managed like 22 minutes. I get my workouts here : blogilates.com

Most of her workouts are very tiring! She really works you! I actually wanted to do 40 minutes. But my body is already aching. I felt like I really worked hard, even though I could only do like 80% of the reps. I didn't sweat much bcoz I'm in an air-conditioned room. The haze is getting worse these days!

I will see if I can do a DVD workout tomorrow!

Walked for an hour today....

Thursday, June 20, 2013

but not much sweating! The workout has to be extremely vigorous to get me sweating. I just don't sweat easily. Don't know why. I honestly wanted to do a DVD but my Mom was home and she wanted the TV. She normally leaves me to do my thing but today she was home and wanted the TV. I'm supposed to do more cardio, so I decided on a long walk. I got to visit Max, a 4 legged friend, a golden retriever, he's just so lonely, he just sits there longing for someone to pet him! If I were his mistress, I'll be playing with him all the time! His master also plays with him but only when he's free and he's just so busy with work, that's the problem. Goldens need a lot of attention.

I also has a nice chat with one of my neighbors. Came home very late though, a little after 9pm. My dad got so worried, he even called my mobile! Gotta organize myself and really discipline myself to just do my DVD workouts! Or I'll never do it! Especially with such hot weather, you just want to chill in an air-conditioned comfort!

    I enjoyed reading your blog. Especially when you talked about your neighbors, Golden Reteriever. They are such wonderful dogs and yes they do need regular exercise. I think it would be wonderful if you could take him/her for a 10-15 walk a couple times per week. So great for the dog and maybe good energy for you too. emoticon
I think you still get the benefits from exercise whether or not you sweat.

I don't like the hot weather. I much prefer the A/C. Wishing you great emoticon results.

    Not everyone breaks out in sweat when exercising, even at a high intensity. Some people are wired different from others. I am a good example.

    We have something in common as I do not sweat easily too. Is it safe in your neighborhood to be walking so late all by yourself? Me, too - I just want to chill in an a/c room!

Take care & have another wonderful day! emoticon

Doctor's Warning

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

The heat wave and haze in Malaysia is set to become worse! One doctor has warned us not to exercise if we have a chronic condition, like asthma or a weak heart. It was on the news last night. I think I qualify bcoz I'm on dialysis so I'm not exactly in the prime of health either. But if sweating buckets or getting dizzy in the middle of a cardio session and fainting doesn't appeal to me. I will at least wait till it cooler during dusk to get a walk in at least.

I'm not going to take the doctor's warning as an excuse NOT to exercise at all. But I will tone down the intensity. This is bcoz I've been getting dizzy spells recently and my blood pressure keeps dropping periodically for some strange reason!

I REALLY pray that the weather will get better soon! And the haze will disappear!

    emoticon Yes, I'm praying for your weather to cool down. This does sound worrisome. Can you exercise indoors? And, I want to encourage you to talk to your doctor about the dizziness. Please be careful and take good care of you. emoticon

    You need to tell your doctor and let him know about the dizzy spells and as you are not able to drink allot of water because of your condition you have to be careful about all your liquids that you take in. Also have you tried freezing the water so that you can slowly drink it all day? That is what my late husband told his sister and she goes to dialysis too

    I am also praying that the weather will be better soon. I think the heat is getting to me too due to the fact my chest is feeling uncomfortable for the past couple of days.

Take care & have a fabulous day! emoticon

    You know what would be a really awesome summer workout? Swimming. Easy on the joints, total body workout, and you don't get over heated. That's what I did for a workout when I was pregnant with my son in the middle of a hot summer. I just had to remember to wear sunscreen. The only caveat with that is that you have to have access to a pool. My in laws had one in their back yard at the time (they moved and so did we, so its not available to me anymore). I've heard of classes that work on strengthening the body in gentle ways. I think a lot of therapy places use this method. I work at a facility for seniors that has a pool. The residents swear by it as the best workout they can get.

    I hope it cools down soon. Is there a way you can exercise indoors? Maybe you could do that until the heat breaks.

    Wow, that must be bad. Just be wise with your exercises. Just move your body but make sure you are not heating up too much.
