And if thats really the case,
I am currently a very oily and full peppery crab
with loads of carbs. terrible.
Had the following for dinner:
it was honestly a little too much.
(mella, we needed you. erps)
and now i am feeling crappy from too much food.
Am trying really hard to incorporate the 80% full rule.
You must have heard of it, the one where u are supposed to eat til
you are around 80% full and ta daa, you stop.
The problem here is...HOW do i know when i am full?
Sharmie knows. She tried describing to me, but erm,
its really rather hard to sense 'fullness'.
In any case, what i should have done
(and am going to start doing, really)
is to portion away a section of food and eat the remaining.
Honestly, we probably don't really need all the calories
served to us at every meal but we are programmed to finish everything set in front of us
so this could be a good way to start!
Another thing i picked up this week is something
my mum keeps drilling into me but i refuse to listen.
"Drink a glass of warm water first thing in the morning"
this apparently helps to cleanse the body from the overnight bad stuff
and is always the first step in a detox program.
Well, it has always been a secret wish of mine to go on a detox plan
so i can feel 'healthy' and 'light'
and all the bunch of good things they use to describe detoxing
but the herbal shakes and fasts are too hard to follow in my way of life
so i do the best i can.
Also picked up another tip while waiting for fecial
(seriously, the waiting room for facials has the best mags)
grab a cuppa peppermint or ginger tea after every meal
as this helps digestion.
i personally hate ginger (ginger beer doesnt count)
so i opt for peppermint or hot green tea
and now as i am nursing my cup of tea
i am praying this works for my bloated tummy.
Had lunch at this really retro cafe today:
we really really really love this quote.
they had all sorts of old school deco.
pity the food was so-so :(
it was kinda stupid to wear white for crabs.
Went for a super long supplier meeting yesterday
and approved some more willow samples:
okay this is very MP.
long swing skirt with a nipped waist.
we always ask for more more more fabric at the skirt portion
and then die when we are quoted the price.
plenty of cloth. haha.
the pleat details are really really nice
and it fits everywhere perfectly :)
After work, went to meet Mella and Syd..
this is probably the first time the 3 of us got together after 5 years???
coincidentally, both of them were wearing MP clothes.
its actually quite funny that syd has to label her calculator
with her full name to mark her territory.
i wore full black and sharmie said i look like an events usher.
i call this my thaipusum necklace. hahhaa.
borrowed it from MP's phoshoot wardrobe.
Am planning to go visit bridal shops this weekend,
so if you are a bride-to-be or was a bride
or just someone with suggestions,
please drop me a comment and let me know which ones are good!
thank you so much in advance :)
