Low Carb Menu

i am feeling bloated and bigger than my usual self. and right now my stomach is like i am 2 months pregnant. so yeah... i really need to do something about my food. when i complained this to joey, he would say.. 'ma, it is what you eat, you have not been watching what you eat' and which it is true.

so, while i was browing, i found this --> sample that i got from:

A Sample Low-Carb Menu For One Week
This is a sample menu for one week on a low carb diet plan.

It provides less than 50 grams of total carbs per day, but as I mentioned above if you are healthy and active you can go beyond that.

Breakfast: Omelet with various vegetables, fried in butter or coconut oil.
Lunch: Grass-fed yogurt with blueberries and a handful of almonds.
Dinner: Cheeseburger (no bun), served with vegetables and salsa sauce.

Breakfast: Bacon and eggs.
Lunch: Leftover burgers and veggies from the night before.
Dinner: Salmon with butter and vegetables.

Breakfast: Eggs and vegetables, fried in butter or coconut oil.
Lunch: Shrimp salad with some olive oil.
Dinner: Grilled chicken with vegetables.

Breakfast: Omelet with various vegetables, fried in butter or coconut oil.
Lunch: Smoothie with coconut milk, berries, almonds and protein powder.
Dinner: Steak and veggies.

Breakfast: Bacon and Eggs.
Lunch: Chicken salad with some olive oil.
Dinner: Salmon with butter and vegetables.

Breakfast: Omelet with various veggies.
Lunch: Grass-fed yogurt with berries, coconut flakes and a handful of walnuts.
Dinner: Meatballs with vegetables.

Breakfast: Bacon and Eggs.
Lunch: Smoothie with coconut milk, a bit of heavy cream, chocolate-flavored protein powder and berries.
Dinner: Grilled chicken wings with some raw spinach on the side.

Include plenty of low-carb vegetables in your diet. If your goal is to remain under 50 grams of carbs per day, then there is room for plenty of veggies and one fruit per day.

i am tired of asking. but it doesnt stop me from asking because maybe i still believe that it is not the time yet. maybe because i have faith in Him that He will grant me what i asked for. as long as i lived He has always given me what i asked for. but this time it is pretty tough. it is too tough that i broke into pieces. and i picked up all those broken pieces and got up to go on with my journey. until when? i dont know. people say trust His plan and you will be at peace. so i guess that is what i am doing.

but if only you know what is in my mind - you would, be in tears.

God, please give me that strength to move on...

mischa is my baby

I was having a chat with my office colleagues during lunch time when I was ermm how to say, hurt by one of my colleagues comment about my Mischa. Having Mischa as our family members is one of the best thing that has happened in my family. She is one of us. She is my baby and she understands how I feel whenever I feel sad or lonely or happy. Yes, she is a domestic cat. We saved her from being run-over by cars in the middle of the road. Some people may want to own only mixed breed cats – but I don’t care how much you would spend on your cats, or what kind of cats that you have in your home or how proud you are with your mixed breed cats. Seriously I don’t care BUT don’t give comment like “kucing macam ni kat pasar berlambak!!” that is so KURANG AJAR!! How would you feel if I were to say that about your child??? Yeah maybe I am being emotional because I am Mischa’s mom!! The only mom that she knows since she was a baby. So, don’t you dare give such comment about my Mischa!!

is it?

i notice that nowadays i have very very limited time to blog. perhaps i should just blog via email like i did on the 1st jan posting. of course the layout would not be nice if i were to blog from my laptop. the reason i am saying this is because last time when i used to blog often, i had less stress. :p heheh :D

anyway, my days are happening too fast, really too fast. joey is already in form 5 this year. and lisa is gonna be 20 this year! wow... no more having teenagers kids.. only 1 teenager left. how do i feel about it? alhamdulillah, i am grateful that my kids turn out to be good kids and quite easy to manage/handle. i have to admit dealing with a boy is different as the way they think is different.

at this point of time i am having overlapping tasks to be done - and what on earth am i doing, blogging??? LOL ... i just need to let things out of my chest first.. ok.. :p

i end my 2016 quite well. i took the last week of december 2016 off. not really sure what to do but with the current situation at the office, it just made me felt so iyeeghhh... but i keep telling myself - what choice do i have? it is either i grumble every day out of it - or just go with the flow and do what i am supposed to do since i am paid for it every month anyway. i have to admit that multi tasking with my fitness activities are getting more and more challenging. BUT that did not stop me from having a good holiday with my son - and a great time partaying and appreciating AKO Fitness members.

oh, for those who have been reading my blog, my fb (page or personal fb), IG or my tweet - they may clash.. as in my postings. simply because for my fb page it is all about AKO Fitness activities / updates  / changes, and my other fb is for my personal and i can me quite emotional... but my tweet is errmm more aggressive? my ig can sometimes about me sharing about fitness activities, motivation or relationship, WHICH may/may not be related to me, okay. so yeah... just read, if you like, with an open mind. NOT everything is about me. gosh.. :/

ermmm i really have to go.. boss is calling. i really wanna share some of my travelling photos. i must say that joey really takes nice pictures. maybe my next posting will be pictures from joey's camera during our recent trip to bandung ;)

stay tuned.

welcome 2017

it wasnt the new year eve that i wanted. until i decided that new year eve celebration does not mean anything to me anymore. had a bad migraine for the past 2 days and i know why.. lack of drinking water. so, it was tough to get back on track and feel better..had to take 2 panadols, and arranged for a 2hour body massage. half hour before new year i was already on my bed playing with my phone. what else to do 🙄😐 **sigh**

early morning of 1st jan 2017 kaiser texted me and asked where i was. where else can i be? of course at home lah. apparently he wanted to take me out for a ride in a porsche that he babysits 😊 so yeah, that kinda brings smile on my face. he is quite unpredictable actually.. 1 day he can just ignore me and another day he can give me all the attention that i wanted. although at the same time i always remind myself that, i need to take care of my heart first. 

so, he took me for breakfast at craven, where we used to hang out many years back when we lived in bukit antarabangsa. then we went drive up to kl city centre before we go up puncak setiawangsa and take some photos. so, yeah.. my opinion? it was indeed a comfortable ride and nice. compared to Audi TT and Z3 i think that i sat in before. Audi TT was hard and bumpy while Z3 was noisy. 

it was ok 😎 i feel good. boleh lah.. 😛

that's all for the 1st day of Jan 2017 😉 till we meet again.

ain signing off via email.
