Why I Chose to be a Glutton and Suffered Tonight

There was jasmine rice left, plus that Spam.  But then I was craving for chips (fries), so I decided to drop by Northgate Shopping Centre to buy chips ($3.50) and sweetcorn ($2.20).  I was happily eating chips on my way home.  Then I cooked the corn while eating the spam and rice.  I also drank soda from the fridge.  But then I remembered that I still have some Nescafe Mocha ($3.51 per 10 sachets on sale).  But I remembered that I have to drink my milk (choco milk fortified with Calcium).  So I drank 1 glass (300mg Calcium per 250 ml of milk which is around $2.50 per box) but I would need around 500mg of Calcium so I had to drink another glass.  But this time I was already full.  I told myself that I should not drink anything anymore but I don’t want to go down later just to drink that glass of milk.  So out of laziness, I forced myself to drink that milk.  After that–disaster.  I tried lying on my side just to help my stomach to empty some of its contents, but I could not take it anymore.  I threw up.  There goes my 300mg Calcium.

I would not want to waste all these food but I learned that I should not force myself.  I may gain weight easily but my stomach can only take in as much given a short period of time.  So I should plan what I eat and the amount of it.

Gluttony is not an option.  Gluttony is a sin.  Everything should be in moderation.

I really need to plan my meal now. Hmmm…

Koorong

In the Philippines, my favorite Christian bookstore is OMF.  I would go to Greenbelt 1 just to immerse myself in Christian books/devotionals there at OMF.  So imagine how happy I have felt when Z led us to Koorong Tamworth.  I feel like I’m in heaven then. Hehe…:)

I bought this devotional bible there in New Century Version (NCV).  I thought I would find it hard to understand.  But this is one of the more understandable versions of the bible.  I am glad I bought this.  🙂

I also tried this Kebab Stall in the Centrepoint Shopping Center in town.  I wanted something spicy so I decided to eat kebab with yogurt and garlic sauce.  It’s not as spicy as I think it would be but it’s okay and not messy to eat 🙂  They also give good enough amount of beef.  Well, they should for it costs around 9 bucks 🙂

 

After going to town, I waited for my housemate so we could go to the supermarket for our food.  She’s into health stuff now and I would often tell her which is healthy and not.  I have been planning to go back to eating healthy and becoming a sort of vegetarian but I’m still trying to overcome factors that hinder this endeavour. 🙂  Anyway, I bought some healthy stuff like choco milk fortified with Calcium, oats, cornflakes, biscuits instead of chips.  Improving right?!  One step at a time. 🙂  I noticed also that my stomach is not that upset anymore. 🙂  I owe it to this healthy food. 🙂  Hmmm I need a food menu. Have a great day everyone! 🙂
