Sneaking in a post while I defrag my C:\ drive - it's been quite stressed out with all that backing up, restoring and file moving. The free space is getting quite fragmented. Now's a good time to tidy it up since I've finally finished straightening out my HDD contents. Yay!
So anyway, I got quite bored of the usual food today so I decided to try something new. KFC porridge! You heard me right - just blend in the chicken meat like any other meat. Turns out the spicy version is extremely salty and spicy. It was quite tough to swallow down and I ended up having to dilute it quite a bit. But it was interesting to try.
I think my fondness for KFC has decreased even further. When I was young (primary school?)
, my parents were quite strict about fast food and we hardly ever got to eat it. One of the rare occasions which warranted such unhealthy food choices was the birthday of either of the 3 kids. We would all troop down to the Toa Payoh KFC (think it is still in the same location)
and stuff ourselves silly with chicken. The Toa Payoh branch used to be one of the better branches in terms of chicken QC (a term that I think Andrew the purveyor of fine chicken rice will be familiar with)
. They also had nice big tables that could fit our larger than average family. Anyway, I think we kids soon outgrew our infatuation with fast food when we could have much of it as we wanted in secondary school. Forbidden fruit when made freely available somehow loses its sinful appeal. The fact that Mum cooks really nice healthy food (i love her vegetables)
also helped a lot. I think you'll find that I don't really have a taste for unhealthy food, maybe a very occasional craving for ice cream or Chinese sausages at the maximum.
But I really need to increase my caloric intake right now: my latest weight is like 10% off my pre-operation weight. 5 kgs weight lost in 2 weeks - definitely significant. definitely envy inducing (for girls who think they need to lose weight ie all the fairer sex)
. The combination of dexamethasone, physical and mental stress from the operation and blood loss as well as reduced caloric intake sure is effective. No wonder those cancer patients look so cachectic.
Hmm I guess I'll have to take more meals.
1. 4 meals a day - breakfast 9-10am, lunch 1-2pm, dinner 6-7pm & supper 10-11pm
2. Ensure x 0.5l x 3 - breakfast, lunch, supper
3. Half boiled eggs x 3 at breakfast, fruit juice + low fat milk at lunch, porridge and Fybogel drink at dinner, milo at supper
4. Stick to the damn timings, eat in 15 min and brush in 5 min - I am the king of procrastination and dragging out my meals.
5. Proper meal preparation - Blend, sieve, repeat x1. What doesn't go through the sieve ain't gonna get through my wired up teeth - mai tu liao
throw it away
That should give me about 3200 Cals at least. Should be enuff. Hope my weight goes back up, but it'll most probably be fat because I am not exercising. Can only walk around. *sigh* walk more lor...
P.S. Think I might be shifting over to MSN Spaces
if I can be bothered to copy this site over. It's neater there but not so customisable. A big plus is that you can limit viewers to those oKIV la.
