An occasional treat!

Saturday, August 17, 2013

Yesterday, I decided to treat myself to McDonald's for my lunch. I had dialysis yesterday (Friday), the last dialysis for the week. I always look forward to Fridays because of the weekend.

Well, I haven't had McD's for some time, so I decided to go the whole mile, even with the regular coke. I hardly take any form of soda and coke is my favorite! I had a big and tasty burger with medium coke and fries!

I know McD fries are sooo bad but why do they taste so darn good!!!? Sigh!

I'm going out for dinner this Saturday after Bible study, I'll have to make a healthier choice today, I guess! I eat way to much junk! No wonder I still have a belly problem!

    Me too, the belly!! I think McDs tastes so good because salt, fat, bread, meat altogether just does taste GOOD. I was bad too, while on the road Fri, Sat, then being so tired from it all on Sun, with few other less expensive we had burgers and coke all three days. I loved it, but I too know it is not good. You were good, only one day!! I think it's okay once in a while. Old people like me don't tolerate fast food too good in the digestion part, so I paid handsomely for those burgers.....I think even once a week isn't bad, as long as you don't stuff yourself, and you don't. Enjoy life!!

    McD's once in a while is A-OK.

I am blue today...........

Thursday, August 15, 2013

I feel so blah, bored, lonely and blue............

I've noticed that I feel this way quite often nowadays. Maybe I need to see my therapist. Maybe I'm depressed. I hope this black cloud lifts from me soon. I should exercise today but I don't feel like it! I feel like walking to the nearby McDonald's for some french fries but it's too hot!

I really should be doing my needlework but I also don't feel like it! I just don't know what to do with myself today!

    Yes, find something to do, anything, to get your mind off it. I would say it does sound like depression, which would be normal for what you have to deal with. Do talk to your Dr./therapist. But meanwhile make yourself do things, it's hard to get going but once you do you will feel better.

    Definitely go for that walk. I find that exercise lifts my mood (if only a tiny bit) whenever I am feeling down. In any case, it gives me something else to focus on instead of the thoughts that are making me blue!

    I agree with wearingthin! I often repeat that phrase to myself. You'd be surprised how good a walk can do you. Bring some ice water with you and get out there and look around.

    I think that walk to McDonald's might be just the ticket! It will get you moving (despite it being hot), and you'll see people while there :)

Hope you feel a bit better! Don't forget to bring water for the walk!

    Really try to get yourself out for that walk - once you are moving, you will probably find that you want to walk even further.

Recovering from flu, finally!

Friday, August 09, 2013

But my appetite is not fully back yet, but I can eat without throwing up everything at least. I just had some dinner just now and I feel fine! I guess, I'm recovering, no more fever and I feel better, much better!

I'm having some issues with 2 friends actually. One is a lady and she gets mean when she doesn't get her own way. I've decided to forgive her but also not to be so close to her from now on.

The other is this guy I have a crush on but he's not interested so I also have to keep my distance from him so I won't get hurt. I can only consider him a friend, maybe not even that becoz that will give me false hope.

So, I'm not a very happy camper atm :(

    Hi Elaine, emoticon

I am glad to hear you are feeling better! Life is such that people will come and go. For those who do not treasure you, just let them go. This also applies to men friends. Also, I want to say, when you are not expecting it, love will find its way to you. So, thank God for all your blessings even in not so good times and believe tomorrow will be better!

Take care & have a fabulous weekend! emoticon

Having Flu is no fun!!!!

Thursday, August 08, 2013

I woke up on Tuesday morning with a fever and chill! I went to dialysis yesterday and I spent the whole 4 hours shivering under my blanket. I didn't even eat at all until today (Thursday) but my appetite still hasn't come back full force yet. I hope I don't lose to much muscle with this enforced fast!

I ate some porridge for Tuesday's dinner and I ended up throwing up everything! Ewwww!!! I hate this! I didn't even eat dinner Wednesday! I hate a bit of porridge for lunch tho. I ended up eating a little PB sandwich to fill my empty tummy Wednesday night.

I had little bites today. The fever is gone and I'm feeling better today. But rotten timing tho! I can't go to my neighbor's house for Hari Raya (Muslim festival)!

Aching legs!

Sunday, August 04, 2013

I did a 45 minute Barre DVD workout yesterday and my legs are still aching today. I think I'll let my leg muscles recover, I'll just take a gentle walk! I want to give my legs a chance to recover.......

I hope my Mom comes home soon, I'm thinking of going to the night market. In Malaysia that's like vendors who set up tables selling all kinds of stuff, but mostly food, veggies, cold drinks and desserts and the like. But you can also find stuff like kitchen stuff and hairclips. You can buy basically anything from these night markets.

Or maybe I'll visit my hairdresser to buy some hair serum. At first glance, my hairdresser's hair serum may seem expensive but when you take into consideration the size of the bottle, it's not that much expensive, so maybe I'll get a bottle to try and see if it is as good as he claims it is......

    I agree with you that you should let your leg muscles recover. I used to go to night markets a long time ago.

    i like how a good intesnse workout feels/. even if tight or sore that feeling is also enjoyable.
The markets sound like fun and a way to find good deals.

    Elaine, yes, rest them legs. That Barre DVD must be a good one!! DOMS is no fun, but you did workout hard for it. So it's not all a bad thing. Yes, do go for a walk to keep the fluids moving til the soreness goes away??
WOW, being a night person myself, I would love your Malaysian night markets!! You lucky you!! I would go with you if I could. I remember walking all night in Seoul SKorea there was always street food booths and all the shops were open. Nothing like here in the States. Unless you like Walmart or Jack n the Box?? I wish I had more money too, to travel, I would come visit you and walk a lot at night with you. I would love to experience Malaysia. I've seen a couple tv commercials for your country. Looks lovely.
