Early Christmas or late Valentines?

Yesterday after dinner, we went shopping for some grocery at Giant. While I put a handful of baking ingredients in the cart coming behind me, I saw a box already inside the cart.
My husband bought an electric mixer for me. I remember I told him 2 nights before, I took 30 minutes to beat butter and sugar, but the batter was still not fluffy and pale enough.
It is so sweet of him for listening to me, and buying me something that I really want.  Now I have this electric mixer, I can bake a more handsome cakes for my family.
Before I could keep my excitement in check, my husband went to Guardian and bought me another thing.
Natural Clenx Tea™ is a high quality detox slimming tea made from 100% natural organic green tea and herbs, with no laxatives, no added sugar and no side effects.
You wonder why he bought this for me.
Ever since I started baking, I didn't lose a single pound though I exercised for 1 hour 3 times a week.
Albeit having 10 grains porridge in my breakfast and lunch, I still couldn't reduce my belly fat. T____T.
When he helped taking picture of me in bikinis at Pangkor beach last few weeks, he saw me sucking in my belly, he shook his head in disbelievable. He knows, and I know too, I am still far far behind my role model, Halle Berry.
Anyway, it is so thoughtful of him for being so supportive in my weight loss program.

Should I take these as are my early Christmas gifts or my late Valentine gifts from my White Knight???

    2. I have seen many aunties went to Marie France and came out the same size! Then after that have to add money till over RM10k! Better sign up personal trainer in gym cos very cheap compared to slimming centers. The exercise will make you very alert and strong willpower too.... Ahem!

    3. come to think of it, Yan, better to beat your flour and egg manually lah, so that you can tone up your arms mah.. later use the electric blender, your "bye bye meat" don't want to say bye bye to you~~ :D

      Delete
    4. My hands were really tired when doing the beating and the stirring. Besides, manual beating very time consuming and the cake texture wasn't smooth enough.

    4. SK, My husband didn't complain about my belly. I am the one feeling not good. He said, "Don't compare yourself with Halle Barry."

      TM, sucking tummy is to suck in and hold the tummy up. Tucking tummy? I don't know. You explain.

  26. Belly fat nees a lot of determination to get rid one,,,, don't buy all those AB machines,just cut down on your carbo,switch to running,religiously do some sit ups and I think you will be fine.....

    By the way, say :kudos" to your hub for me, will ya

    ReplyDelete
  27. By the way, there is a show on Astro, "my last 10 pounds"watch it and I am sure you won't like baking anymore......

    seriously speaking,it is never easy to get rid of belly fat,,, as for me, I run 4 times a week, do loads and loads of crunches of the tummy areas,, do the hip shake while bathing and every morning, I put my two legs under the TV cabinet,and do about 20 to 30 sit ups,, i hate it but i think i will hate myself more to see my tummy potruding ,so no choice,,just do it lah
