Cool 🙂 Thanks for posting that.. I agree it’s better than having butter on bread. and i LOVE guacamole so I feel all healthy now 😛

I like having wheat crackers with strawberry jam (both organic) on top, coupled with fruits, and grapefruit juice. That’s probably one of the healthiest breakfasts I can suggest off-hand, heh.
Good luck, and keep it up~! :)))

Is that tasty?? I don’t really like dry carbs.. like bread and crackers and biscuits, unless the biscuits/crackers are really yum :)~

I bought the plain version so it’s definitely more tasty if you spread the jam. There’s a salted version tho’, so I think that’d be good on its own too. 😀

I already have a mini tub of jam at work, so I can try it out, yay! 🙂

try xenical! you can still eat whatever you like to eat and stay slim. or after a while, you’ll automatically be more careful with what you eat after you start seeing some of the fat coming out from the other end of you.

“you’ll automatically be more careful with what you eat after you start seeing some of the fat coming out from the other end of you. ”
sounds so grosteque ! hahaha.
I think exercise is still the best form of diet 🙂

Hehe I agree! What’s Xenical anyway, are you using it?

You know, I’m the total opposite of you. I love dry carbs such as bread and crackers, haha. But it’s bad cos I can end up eating almost a whole loaf of bread with cheese or something =\
I’m on a quest to lose weight too…but I think I’ll start next week when I’m back in school. Too many choices and options here at home with my parents, haha 😛 Good luck with losing that 1kg!

Haha maybe we should swap! I never eat bread and cereal and just those dry carbs.. i like hot food 🙂

Carbohydrates or no carbohydrates
When I was in my teens, they told you to pay attention to calories. By eating a lot of carbohydrates, you can keep your calories low. After all a potato is only 100-150 calories.
Now people are into low carbohydrate diets.
At Christmas time I started eating a lot of meats for B vitamins (because I got my first gray hair last year and I was trying to prevent more. The internet info advocated B vitamins). Well, I gained 5 pounds (not sure what that is in Kilos, that would be equivalent to about one medium big chihuhua dog). So I am back to my usual food regimen where I don’t eat a whole lot of meat.
But now I am trying to say no to a lot of pasta…..trying to eat a healthy diet in my advancing years. Difficult though….since food is one of my main sources of entertainment.

Re: Carbohydrates or no carbohydrates
I know what you mean.. all these diet fads and trends just confuses everyone IMHO.
However I do realise that a LOT of carbs isn’t good, since many carbs are processed anyway. However I’m more focused on cutting down fat, as my diet pretty much consists of takeaway and restaurant food and fast food.. so that’s the first thing to cut down for me, I think!
I agree, food is a great main source of entertainment 🙂

what is this excersize you speak of? isn’t chasing misty around enough?
Oooooo that reminds me.. I’ll walk her next weekend, that counts!!

good for you.. you go girl!
🙂 I know it’s nothing in the realms of your kinda exercise.. but hey, you gotta start somewhere right?!
posted on June 23, 2005 at 12:24 am
I think it’s great!
posted on June 22, 2005 at 3:53 pm
im sure you’ll feel that 1kg going away real soon if you continue to work out. after reading how you are trying to lose weight and how janice keeps fit, i feel so BAD about myself! so im going to try do my fair bit too 😛

Heheh maybe we can start a be-healthy epidemic! 😛 I’m feeling extra guilty cos of the food I ate in SG…. so must be healthy ASAP!
posted on June 22, 2005 at 11:27 pm
That’s great it’s a really good start what you’re doing! I may sound like I’m an exercice expert when saying that but I’m not, I’m actually trying the same things as you are. 3 times a week is hard though, bleh.
posted on June 23, 2005 at 3:19 am
Ohhhh i know, once a week is hard enough!

I think if you are serious about this healthy/fit thing you should buy some scales. But not just ordinary scales. Buy the fat % scales. I think you would be surprised at 1) how much fat you have, and 2) how much you actually need to be healthy. For a female from 20-40 years old, I think it’s around 25-30%.
It costs around $100 (a lot I know) but I think it’s worth it because people always tell me I’m a lot heavier than I look, but I only have around 21% body fat which seems a lot (but is actually less than normal or ‘healthy’) so I concluded I either have more muscle than fat, or heavy bones 🙂 but yeah.. it’s really fun to use but you need to get naked 🙂

Those scales sound fab, but $100?! Can’t I go to the store and use it instead? Erm, keeping clothes on though 😛

Seeing as you are being so healthy, I’ll let you know what I ate yesterday.
Brekky: Caramel Swirl ‘So Good’ soy icecream
Lunch: Subway vege delight, small pack of smiths crinkle cut chips
Snack: Vegetarian pastie
‘Dinner’: Felafel with extra hommus, about a third of a bag of Darrel Lea strawberry licorice, and a potato cake sandwich (potato cake + bread + sauce = yum).
I don’t believe in eating things I don’t like.

Ahh I wish I could eat healthy like that! Well, I’m learning 🙂 It’s hard cutting out good food but maybe in the end it’ll be all worth it…
