Hanging Up My Love...

This morning while walking back to our car after breakfast, we met our ex colleague, actually he is a retiree and the first thing he mentioned to me was, "hey, you put on a lot of weight already ah.."

Yes, I cannot deny that, right? Just look at my past posts, all food, food and more food... see how fattening, those outside food, absolutely sinful cos of the abundant oil and lard... (sorry to spoil your appetite in this post....)

Another reason of my gaining weight is that I have finally call it quits on my badminton. I cannot play anymore, I couldn't, I shouldn't, I mustn't. My right arm is confirmed injured, I have been stubborn, wanting to play despite the pain and it has taken its toil... sigh...

Last monday was the last straw, I felt the intensive pain on my hand/arm that leads to my shoulder/chest and back, all on my right side. Even as I am typing now, I can feel the fatigue on my wrists...... DARN!

I guess I have to hang up my love (racquet) and have to resort to the most boring exercise, that is.... the capital W..... walking... awwww.. doesn't it sound mono?

There goes my only forever..... there goes my badminton-ing...

  7. I know just how you feel.

    I have been totally addicted to running all my life...then last year I had back surgery. No more running for me. So it is on the treadmill everyday WALKING...it takes me twice the time that running did to get the same result.

  13. take good care Claire, let your hand /arm have a "rest", for time being, just go for the boring "walking" lo or maybe a "slow jog"?

  14. how about walking? walking around your residential area?

    Ahem...bear with me if I sound like granny ...but NO ASAM FOOD & NO SPICY FOOD for you while your arms is healing. Heard that eating those food while have injury will cause "Fung Sap" when you are old. :p

  20. Sorry to hear about your arm and having to give up your badminton. Perhaps the doctor can recommend physical therapy? I walk alot. I have serious back problems so can't walk as fast as I used to but I still get out and walk. It gets me out in the fresh air and sunshine.

  24. You know Claire,once i heard from a Tennis coach(old one) he said if we knew how to play games properly, the chances of inflicting injuries upon ourselves is very minimal...

    so i guess,you did the jumping smash,when you should have.... you rally too long when you should not have.... your dropped short,,,when you should not have,,,,you lunged forward, bent down to ditch the ball, when you should not have,, you overhead smash, when you should not have.......

    so there had been many should not haves,,, you have done,,,lah..

    i believe you can still play, let the injury heal, then play it leasurely,,,dont ever give up something you like.

    strecth before you start,, sister,,

    if you stop playing badminton,,, KKK will be very sad

  25. it's ok, you can still go for walks eventhough you don't play badminton to exercise. anyway, i don't think you look overweight. just nice :)

  26. It may be due to TOO MUCH BLOGGING or online surfing. Sitting down too long and you end up with stiff wrists and elbows and pain (Can also happen if playing with handphone too much!) - due to the poor blood circulation. Go for body massage...to get the blood flowing.

  27. eugene: u hit the point..ouch!! no proper coaching and training will inflict injuries on my poor ligaments and nerves.. my sister and friends have advised me to stop many time, i no heed them but now i got to.. :( KKK, dont feel sad for me, huh..


    barb: now at yet.. the way i eat and lacking exercise, i dare not say that anymore.. :p


    STP: i did that too.. body massage to circulate blood.. should go monthly at least...

    (psstt.. about the surfing/blogging, please talk softer, u know i know, sudah la, sir.. i will try to cut down, trying to anyway..will be going for a long break next week)

  28. I don't know, but hang up on them, then when you call them back, tell them that the NEXT time you hang up on them, to call them AFTER you are done classes, call to whereever 'home' is... OR, always leave it on vibrate mode.
