Wow, reading my previous post, I must have been really stressed out last night due to lack of sleep and doing work endlessly. As I mentioned before, i seldom talk about my wedding preparation. Well, I guess it is not the time to brag about it yet, and the fact that I am no influential personality, the only people that'll be reading my blog is well. Me? haha, kalau opah baca pun tak reti dia bahasa inggeris...tulis jawi ok-lah kot. haha.
However this post is not really to brag, but to reflect upon myself regarding the price of looking beautiful..if it wasn't for a wedding, I think it is pretty cheap. I have been starting this spinach based diet, and I'm telling you, IT WORKS! The fact you swallow a whole cup of spinach everyday is better than most detox diet. I add in blueberries, bananas, sometimes oat, and honey or avocado. Before sleep I would cleanse with a cup of green tea leaves bought from Suzhou, China.
Yes, I am telling you, it helps to cut down and slim down. Another additional juice I should try is warm squeezed lemon juice to cut up the fat. This is all cheaper than those in packet detox or diet drinks I have tried all my life aside from Herbalife, which is also good, but more as additional drink, but Herbalife is expansive, and I have to replace it with fresh spinach drink and add-in Anlene.
My ingredients; A whole cup of spinach, Low-fat yogurt, honey, blueberries, avocado, banana, and Anlene. Planning to try a different flavour next week!
Hari tu semangat nak try so luxury sikit beli Avocado and blueberries, but now, as I know it works, and I need to maintain it, I will keep it to Banana and Spinach with honey, oat, anlene and a squeeze of lemon as everyday's potion to detox and skim fat. Other options include tomato and spinach or carrot...the point is to have green spinach in the drink...itu yang melawaskan dan mengempiskan.
Secondly, I have stopped eating rice for nearly 4 months now. To tell you the truth, sometimes I cheat and have kerabu or dagang, but only ONCE a month, so still boleh kira dengan jari berapa kali cheat. Nak stop makan nasi tak susah, bila dah nampak hasil perut dah start kempis sebab sebulan tak makan nasi, jadi semangat untuk stop terus, but yeah sometimes kempunan, mama masak lauk sedap..makan lauk je...tapi itu pun menggemukkan. Have to stop from today onwards after last nights dinner meratah lauk chilli crab and ikan masak lemak!
It's May and I have a family wedding to attend by the end of the month, this one whole month will be potent to detox everyday and to slim as much...because....my engagement is very soon, a hundred days away... and....I buat baju cantik..kalau nak pakai baju cantik and mahal, badan pun kenalah slim...
And so, I jog, atleast 2-3 times a week....The first price of beauty is: DETERMINATION
My first set of target is to fit into my engagement dress, and talking about dresses, I am telling you, Nurita is not cheap...Personally, the Nurita Harith choice is because Mama likes beautiful sweet things, and Nurita has managed to be dubbed as the purveyor of those things. Secondly, this is for engagement, kalau tak, jangan haraplah nak spend so much for a dress selagi diri ni tak kerja lagi. Bila fikir balik semua benda mahal, padanlah diri ni kena jugak jadi arkitek bila kenang senior2 arkitek masa kerja dulu bergaji "ok" and could buy whatever they want, because everything is more expansive these days. At first tempah dengan tailor biasa sahaja, then suddenly, a decision was made to have Nurita harith to do it. Nice....
You, my friend, I will wear it to the wedding....
And you make me want to loose a lot more weight!
Selain dari baju, MUA is from Min and the Make-up for RM300 for the coming engagement, belum kira nikah and reception. Then there are personal efforts to have clearer skin for which stress and not sleeping is not helping! Facials, drinking collagen, using better shampoos for better hair and the need for treatments. The bottom-line is nothing is cheap when it comes to looking pretty...and if it's for a wedding..lagilah...thus the second price of beauty is that: MONEY
Okay, that's all my celoteh for today...back to work! Dah dapat tempah baju cantik, kerja pun nak kena cantik, back to stressing myself :)
FIVE WEEKS UNTIL THE END OF FOURTH YEAR!
