A moment of low....

Life is an unfair place... No matter how hard we try to satisfy a certain person, it can never be done especially when that person has already have a mindset. At the moment, I am playing the 'be the bigger person' game. But I am not sure until when I can play this game....

It's sad to see my hubby's sad face as well when we get blamed for something rediculous and something that has got nothing to do with the main issue. But that is how it has to be... we have got no choice.

May Allah bless us always, and give us all the patience to face this challenge....

Such a party pooper!!!!

There are two types of person... One is positive and the other is negative....

Scenario: I now managed to get into a dress which was tight before and I didn't wear it before because I looked like a 'karung nangka'. So, went to 'show off' to friends in the office, in particular 2 of my lunch buddies.

The positive one: Wow! Bestnya! Alhamdulillah, you managed to lose some weight. Keep it up!

The negative one: Errr... good la, but the tummy is still buldging!

I was like, what the F***, just because you couldn't lose any weight, you just have to be bitter of other people's achievement!!!

But hey, it doesn't bother me that much (it did bother me a bit, but no, no, no, not now!). I will make the negative one life's miserable, by losing more and more weight!!!!!

Project Shake - Update #3

Alhamdulillah... have good progress...

Did my body analysis last saturday night at my coach's place. Lost 2.1kg!!!! Good huh? I am so proud of myself, but I need to work harder....

I can now wear those clothes that was previously tight fitted. How I am so glad about that! It makes me feel good that there are spaces between the cloth and the skin!!!!

Entering third week now...

Project Shake - Update #2

Almost two weeks since we started. So far, we have gotten the hang of it already. In fact, the shake taste quite nice! I love the vanilla flavour whereas my husband likes the Tropical Fruit one.

However, I have been overeating these past two days... I need to control myself... not only it makes me feel guilty, but also I don't feel comfortable. I think my stomuch has shrunk, so I can't really take a lot of food anymore....

Tomorrow I shall try to contain myself... as I don't like this feeling of fullness... It makes me feel lazy!

Workout at the gym, I have been doing consistantly, at least twice a week... I hope that will last..

Why must people judge others by their appearance or the way they dress????

Last Saturday we went window shopping at Alpha Angle Wangsa Maju. I have been looking for a watch for my birthday, and I was thinking of getting myself a Tissot watch, since it's my birthday, and it's nice to treat yourself once in a while. So, in getting a rather expensive item (well, expensive for me lah!), I would rather look for it slowly, to make sure I get the one which I really-really like.

So, while browsing through the shopping complex, I went into this watch shop at the ground floor. The lady was helpful but I was quite irritated with her. I went to the Tissot cabinet, looking through, seeing which model I'd like. She was very good in recommending models no doubt; being a good sales person of course, desperate to get some sales from me, a potential buyer. Probably my next question to her must have changed her perception on me, I think. I ask, 'Is there any discount for these watches?'. Well, I always learn that we should ask in case there is a discount right?

Then she start recommending other brands of watches. She said, 'Akak cuba lah tengok Alain Delon punya jam, itu murah sikit!'. I was like, in my heart, 'errrr do I look like I can't afford a Tissot?' I was wearing a faded imitation Polo Shirt, faded jeans with just black slippers. My husband was wearing his faded black T-shirt with those secondary-school-green pants with those pockets at the sides of the knees. My kids were dressed up equally bad as their parents.

'Tak pe', I said to myself, 'Kita kasi chance....'.

I went further in the shop, scanning at other brands, pausing at the cabinet of another swiss made watch (I forgot the brandname! Maklum le, not the type who wears expensive watches!). You know what she said to me? 'Yang ini lagi mahal dari Tissot!'. I was like, WTH! I felf like slapping her! I immediately approached my husband and told him that I didn't want to buy the watch yet, especially not from this shop!

I was rather pissed. People like to judge a book by it's cover. It's really sickening....

O well, looks like I need to be pretentious to be a filthy rich person to buy a decent watch!

Project Shake - Update #1

I am, well, my hubby and I are venturing into a project which I named PROJECT SHAKE. As we are growing older, and the kids are growing up, we need to ensure our health is at the best, so that we can see our kids get into colleges, get married, have grandchildren....

We are in our day 3 of the project and so far it has been ok. I hope both of us will get through this as per plan.... Very proud of my other half actually, that he is actually going through with this.... Never thought he is a strong as this... Keep it up honey!

I have to be strong and decipline on this, as we have invested quite a bit of money... so, motivating myself with this blog, I hope that I will pull this through like soldier, I hope.

I am doing this for my kids, my husband and myself. I think it's about time that I take care of body seriously. 3 times a week of cardio workout and thank you so much to a friend, my gym buddy, Ms Eynaa as with her I get more enthusiatic to go to our step classes and our belly dances classes....
