Gym Boredom, Blog Boredom ................

After Subuh prayers, as I while away some time on theprayer mat, I began to visualise the up-coming day.

OK, there are 4 or 5 bananas almost ripe for frittering for breakfast. Wow, pisang goreng breakfast! That's a whole lot of calories, lady. It's OK, I'll eat one or two and let the kids gobble up the rest. Intan's home for the school holidays, and Dean's a permanent fixture since finishing flying school. For now he gets to tag along on observation flights before starting stints on the simulator.

Yeah, calories, calories. Must get back to the gym. In the last month, I've been there maybe 3 or 4 times only as compared to at least 3 times a week previously. I had followed this 12 week program from Global Health and Fitness, managed 11 weeks, lost zero kilos, and one percent body fat. ONE PERCENT???!!! Aaaaargh............... Diet? No way, I like my food, too much. Zsa-zsa figured I'm OK as I am. "Any thinner and you'll look haggard", she said. Thin??? What??? The scale says I have 38.8% body fat. OK it doesn't say where but I know where! Right, I'll do the program again - 12 weeks this time. I'll go at 12 noon. The gym will be practically empty so I can try some other machines to my heart's content. The trainers will mostly be at their lunch break, so hopefully none will try to make me sign up for personal training. Hmmm, I'd sure would look sexy at 30% body fat, 6-pack .... maybe 4-pack abs will do nicely, tight triceps - my biceps ok,ok lah, buns more lifted, inner thighs toned ........ WOW!!!

What else before gym? Update this blog? Read other people's blogs? OK got time. Don't have to sweep and mop because the cleaner came and did a thorough job yesterday. Don't have to water the plants since it rained a little this morning.

What to write, what to write? Can't write, that's a fact. Can only read. Let's see, I'm way bored with the SoPo's. I had already read kata-kama yesterday. It was about abused celebrity Rihanna. Didn't offer a comment, just said a silent prayer of thankfulness to Allah for my hubby. Tea and Scones' was an interesting lesson in the use of commas. I like that bloke's writing - he's bloody talented, he can turn a mundane subject into a cannot-put-it-down must-read. Hope CaptainPirateKing goes over there for a lesson as well. Captain laces his writings liberally with commas as in:

",,,,,,,, new sentence"

",,,,,,, new sentence"

,,,,, yaaa that's his style and very refreshing too. Yooohooohooo!!!

Mamasita's on a blog break. Miss her upbeat blogging. Never mind, she'll be back after the UMNO pow-wow, I guess.

Oh, oh. Newly-datinned Zaida just called and wants to meet up at Alamanda. OK haven't seen her in a while. Gossip time!!!

Thus ends my update and my gym resolution.

Cepat gi gym and cepat2 keluarkan that sexy seductive lady in you!
And kalau exercise selalu, duli pasal calories! Hantam je apa yang you nak makan! hahaha

Zendra said...

Mamasita! Miss you so much lah. Tak betul ke you akan re-blog after umno? If not, then you must start before that lah kan? Tentang the good, the bad and the ugly tu, kalau dah x boleh pangkah, doakan ajelah.

Anyways thanks for dropping by. Gym? Next week nampak gaya...

Capt's Longhouse said...


Not as refreshing as young coconut water !
Am packing my bags again, leaving the island for Alor Star to purchase some padi land from out-laws. Might think of other ways to increase padi production or value added activities related to the padi land.
Island life is busy yet relaxing,,,never without things to do or happenings.
Never BORING !!!!!,,,we need a lady cook who is bloody bored on the Main Land hahaha.

Zendra said...

I'll pass the word around Capt.
Immediate vacancy for lady cook on tropical island.
Must be mature, bored but hard-working.
Able to create tasty dishes from minimal ingredients, 24 hrs a day.
Accomodation provided. Salary and home-visits negotiable.

Zendra said...

WOW Congratulations on the sale!!!

Capt. you beli sana jual sini, angkut sana angkut sini,

Junior pulak nak masuk KTJ...

cam takdak masalah ekonomi jer


Anonymous said...

The trick to over come the economic slowdown is to make things happen. Easy as 1+1=2
Done just talk and nag as most people do, ACT on Action Plan-lah.
Strategize/Select/Action/Execute/Operate/Abandon ,,,,now this process is very effective !
To tell you a secret-lah, I was the Shell Logistics Strategist/Planner for Asia Pacific region b4 I retired the 2nd time. In fact, am a Management Consultant too nowadays but rather enjoy jadi pirateking at my pulau yoohohooing around plus enjoy living to the max.
Ada banyak offers but being very selective with my customers too. After all am too expensive for most set-up yaaaaa.
But for you, I give free sample hahaha.

Zendra said...

Tulah macam pernah terjumpa ke terjeling ke muka macho Capt. ni...

Actually Hubby and I used the same process to choose each other hahaha - that last stage? only when Allah calls, hopefully
