That's the movie we watched last night and I was quite pooped after a long day at work. Hubby continued to watch Kill Bill but I was too tired and was not in the mood to watch so I decided to make some consolidation of the house items.
Yesterday and today hubby and me took a break from gym also because today is Thursday. I am looking forward to going to Vivo for dinner ha ha. I think its about time for me to take a picture of my Thursday night dinners. Trust me they're really yummy especially when we go to Vivo.
Last night dinner hubby and I just went to Everton food court and I ordered Claypot noodle which used to be my all time favorite and now I remember why it is. There was a couple who came and sat next to our table and noticed that the girl ordered the same thing as mine even to my ice lemon tea! Funny. COPY CAT!!!
OK, I shall get back to work and going to count down to 6:30 pm.
After much of discussing back and forth and hunting for contractors we finally decided on the Kota Jaya Contractors Eric and Peter for 35,000. This is basically just for the work of overall renovation and the accessories we will still need to supply them which will come up to 10,000. So, that is going to be pretty interesting and this year it will be a tight budget year.
And the list will continue. Today we took a rest from the gym as we were really tired yesterday and this morning I had to come to work at 8. Seriously I start to think why people cannot work as a team and give understand what others meant. Why must everything be a problem. I truly believe that every issue is solvable what talk things out in a civilize manner.
Yesterday I got home around 8:30 and seems that's going to be my trend for the next couple of months. Yes, my daily life routine going to look like - > 6:15 wake up - > 6:50 hit gym - > 8:30 Breakfast - > 8:50am - > Work - >9:00 pm at home - > 10:00pm sleep. That's seems to be about right.
Oh well, all in all I had a good workout today too but I must say my legs were quite sore though. One thing I realised was I didn't stretched before I start the running. I must do that diligently.
Duration : 20.01 minutes Distance : 2.56 km
Calories burned : 151 Sweat level : Pretty good.
I only did 20 minutes today because I knew I had a good run yesterday and I didn't want to over do it today and also I wanted to squeeze in some Abs work. I did 45 reps of ab crunches. Oh and I ran for more than 2 minutes at level 9!!! How cool was that.
Funny thing today, I was running at level 9 and there were like nearly 10 treadmills on my right side and left is the mirrored wall. This one big white guy who was running on a few treadmills away from me suddenly didn't like this treadmill and came running right beside me!!!! Mind you, there were 10 available ones and why the one right beside me. He started running and ground started to shake!!! Gosh, and that made me forgot to cool down and stretched because I was just thinking of getting off the treadmill. Oh well....
We've got an appointment with our contractors at 7 pm today and hubby said he would like me to be there as well and that touched me. So no matter what I will leave by 6 30 today! I don't care!!!
Yes, today is the HDB second appointment which means hand over of the keys and we would become official house owners. However, as part of the negotiation we allowed the previous owners to stay for 1 more month and they will continue to stay and only will move by the 24th of February.
We went for mattress shopping yesterday evening but we still have not yet settled on which one we're getting. Then we went to Sakae Sushi for dinner.
It was quite difficult to get up knowing it is Monday and it was still 6:15. We did hit the gym and I had an awesome run :)
Duration : 31.24 minutes Distance : 3.77 km
Calories burned : 216 Sweat level : Pretty darn good.
Well actually I may be a bit unfair to state that. We did have a good Saturday overall. Started with how my usual weekends started, with laundry. I was happy that I once again did my laundry and kept them as well at the same time. I hope I will be able to have the same wind power when we move to our HOUSE in April. This house is that way extremely gorgeous to have wind blowing from every single room with HUGE windows. Around 11 we went to Simei (East side of Singapore) to have lunch and also to visit to a house which one of our finalist contractors had done. Lunch was a disappointment as we thought there was still Sakura (Thai Muslim fusion food restaurant) and it wasn't. We had to settle with some kebab which was a total disappointment.
After lunch we walked around Simei and guess what! I bought my GYM Bag FINALLY and it only cost.........SGD$12!!!! and best of all hubby liked it too and he was in fact the one who showed it to me. He said he would not mind taking this bag to his work after our workouts in the morning. So here it is.
The material is like Kipling bags material so its easy to wash.
Look how much space it has. Yes, I absolutely love it. After our little shop and walk around at East Point Mall we went to Upper Changi side where the Condo was and we drove pass a stretch of AMAZINGLY good looking HOUSES!!! and wonder how much they must have cost. Oh well, ONE DAY WE SHALL OWN and LIVE in one of those houses ha! Then we saw the workmanship of the house and we were quite impressed by it and now I believe we're 95% confirm that we would choose this contractor. However, we still have a few more items to iron out so let's see what they would come back with for the questions we have.
After that we went to Sim Siang Choon, which is a lot of people recommended place to buy all the toilet accessories. We found it quite expensive compare to Jln Besar shops. So, our hunt will still continue. We got back around 5pm and we were totally pooped. Then we got a call from Jit and Kanu saying they got Pictionary and that they'd be coming over to play and spend time with us. They came and went back around 4:00 am and guess what! I just happened to check my email at 4 am on Sunday morning and there were like 70 emails for the whole of Saturday.
Then I got this horrible Project manager calling me at 8 this morning to ask me things. I dislike people waking me up especially when I slept late.
Oh well, also I got some sad news last night. Mom called and told me that one of Dad's cousins was in really bad condition and she has brain cancer. They're just counting down the hours. I hope she will be in God's hands and that God will take care of her.
Finally I managed to get back into my running groove. Yes, I managed back my 30 mins for 200 cal today. It was of cuz with such pain and sweat but I did it and quite happy with it.
Duration : 30.55 minutes Distance : 3.72 km
Calories burned : 211 Sweat level : Pretty good.
Had to go to a seminar this morning and I got what I've been wanting for awhile and the rest of the day was just too long and got back home only around 10:00pm. Sigh. There will be many more days like this....
Buy 120 bucks of undies???? I would! Yeah, I was too tired today and needed to replenish my undies and YES! I bought 120 worth of undies. Well all together 10 of them so its around 12 bucks each and I was wondering is it worth it. Well, why not! I work so hard and I think I deserve to buy somethings for myself which I really need.
These week are just passing by so quickly with work. Also to update you that we have been doing quite good with our kicking the bad habit resolution. We are going to keep it up.
I don't know why but the moment I started running yesterday morning I got this weird pain on my stomach. Yeah I said ON my stomach. Not sure how to describe it. Anyhoo, I got so painful around min 16 that I had to stop.
It was on Friday that we went back to Gym. Well I guess I should say I went back to gym because hubby went on Wednesday and I didn't. Here's what I managed on Friday and you will notice that my stamina went down after nearly 2 months of not going to gym or running.
Duration : 20.01 minutes Distance : 2.21 km
Calories burned : 111 Sweat level : Not so great
As for today, its 2nd day for 2010 back to running AND!!! 8th day of our kicking a bad habit.
Duration : 30.01 minutes Distance : 3.47 km
Calories burned : 193 Sweat level : Pretty Good
I was quite happy with it but of cuz I was no where near where I was before. I will not give up though.
