TT - 13 Random Things about Me Today

By Nadiah Alwi - Write at Home Mom On Thursday, February 28, 2008 At 8:07 AM |


  1. I'm being vulnerable since last night, I hope things do get better.
  2. My mother's maid had to go back home to her kampung because her mother is ill.
  3. Due to #2, I have to do everything by myself--normally she can help me doing little things like doing the laundry and ironing--how I hate ironing!
  4. My daughter and I made a promise to "be good" while the maid is away. Hope this really works!
  5. I've just looked for a kindergarten for my daughter and got shocked while seeing the tuition and fees!
  6. I need some more sleep!
  7. Two days ago, I talked on the phone with Liza, my dear blogging friend from Malaysia who came to Jakarta for some business. I wish I could meet her.
  8. I need to buy a monitor. Previously, I borrowed my cousin's but now he has to use it.
  9. I get stressed easily and I hate myself for that!
  10. I'm glad that I have Nonie as my best friend. She has always been there for me. We can cry together then laugh together. That sounds crazy but it helps me save my sanity.
  11. I don't know what to prepare for today's breakfast *It's 08.20 in my country*
  12. I am on a diet.
  13. According to my friend, #9 is the result of #12...is it true?!

one of the reasons we get stressed is due to poor nutrition, so yes, it could be true. don't starve yourself; make sure you're eating right and find a way to relax. ok? ok. happy tt.

Diets stress me out beyond belief! But, Chuck has great advice. My advice (to myself even) is to eat breakfast. I usually forget and it stalls out my metabolism.

Diet-shmiet..you are gorgeous!

Diets make me get stressed too. That's probably the reason you're feeling stressed.

Awww, don't hate yourself for being stressed easily, it adds to it.

And tuition, don't even get me started. The average in our area is 17K per child. I have five.

Seems like you've got a lot of 'real life' stressors going on right now and dieting could be adding to the problems you're experiencing. I agree with Chuck and Secret Agent Mama ... eat a healthy breakfast and choose healthy snacks when your energy drops. Exercise helps too if you can make time with a little one around.
Hugs and blessings,

I like lists like these. Little glimpses into life. Happy TT!

Sounds like a rough patch. Hang in there and stick to your guns, especially where that diet is concerned. Think of the extra housework as helping burn calories!

Hang in there!!!

 
 
Blogger Nathalie Says:

take care, and instead of dieting, try tackling your entire food pattern: don't starve yourself, just eat smaller and healthier portions, at least three to five times a day.
Hang in there!
Thanks for stopping by my TT :)

# 9 result of # 12. i agree! and if one day u get tired, you will have a rebound of the few pounds you've lost. ur stomach needs food. not just milk. try to do some exercise to perk you up and you may avoid carbs eventually but don't forget the protein. don't deprive yourself of the healthy foods or else you get weak and sick. Ulcer is real bad - it can lead to more serious stomach illness.
