I have decided to start with my diet today January 11,2016. Why? Simply, because I’m tired of my unhealthy lifestyle. I never wanted to be really skinny. I’d still prefer meaty yet average BMI.

At this moment, I stood as severely obese according to my BMI (Body Mass Index). This saddened me because I realized how demotivated I was. I drown myself of toxic foods, laziness, longer sleeping habits and more.
This year, I will pull-out myself in the box. I will motivate and work hard to be fit. Slowly but surely with NO YO-YO EFFECT hopefully.
Here are the most CUT-OFFS Habits :
- Sleeping late
- Over-eating unnecessary foods
- Chips, sweets and soda
- Sitting and lying longer than I move
- Eating more Carbohydrates
So far, these habits are the commonly popular habits that some people do, like me. Here are some of mu list that I want to change from now on.
The MUST DO!!
- Sleep on-time atleast 8hrs a day
- EAT healthy ( green, red, orange vegetable and fruits)
- Balance diet
- Prepare homemade healthy shakes once a day.
- Detox 2wks per month(alternatively)
- Do fitness… Dance!
- Move more….
- Meditate Daily
Looking at this list is so hard to adjust I must say. But I have to be back on track and motivate myself to work harder.
As of today, I weighed 86 kg and It’s depressing. I started drinking 1/2 Lemon with warm water in the morning/ when I wake up.
It’s more than a month now and I was thinking our weighing scale was broke. hahaha! I’ve never loosed weight though I can see some changes in my body. Isn’t it weird or it’s just normal? Sometimes it decreases 3 kilos then went back again. Though I am carefully watching my calories intake. Oh! but I have one cheat day every week. I’ve downloaded different apps in my mobile such as calorie counter no monitor my food
Nevertheless, I am still motivated for my goal. Slowly but surely. There is no RUSH afterall.
It’s Saturday and as they said “IT’S PARTY TIME“. I am a socialite and love to have fun with friends. I have spent my off days going out. Weekend was something to look forward when weekdays started. As years went by, a lot of things had happened and changed. I don’t know if it’s the age or I’m just simply fed up wasting my time and energy.
I like to spend the weekend in peace and cozy. I prefer a quite walk in the park, relaxing, picnic, adventure, watching movies and etc. Instead of spending being wasted and have sleepless nights from a exhausting nights like parties, bars and drinking session.
A friend of me once said “if you haven’t experienced extreme parties then you will never get tired of partying until you are satisfied”. Well, I guess he was right. I had been to different kind of parties, name it I experienced it all. To be honest, I missed those kind of life though. But as years goes by, I realized that there are more things that matters.
As what they all said YOLO (you only live once) does not portray to party hard, get drunk or do enormously crazy things. Hence, it means to do things that simply matters most and is worth spending while your still alive. Spend more time with family and friends. Do useful things aside from gossiping and getting drunk. Go for a weekend spree away from the busy life in the city. Visit new places, meet new people, experience other cultures, nurture the wonders of nature. Because one this will all be memories. Memories that we can share to our little ones and who knows we end up in a nursing home. We can share great memories while having a tea in the porch with our oldies buddy.
The only dessert I want neither stress or problematic 😀

We all familiar with the word Detox ( a process or period of time in which one abstains from or rids the body of toxic or unhealthy substances). This sounds so easy to do but I tell you, IT’S NOT! With all the food that I am used to of eating. It’s like I am doing a suicide. Depriving myself of not eating the foods that I am used to.
So I’ve searched about detoxifying. Recipes how on how to do and make it. Be it juice , tea or food. Well, I ended up thinking should I really do this or not? I feared that I will just end up craving more and more. But with all the motivation I have in mind. I did tried!
First thing when I woke up, I drank a 1/2 Lemon with warm water. Then, I had coffee the usual. Which I am not sure is good or not when your in Detox ( please correct me if I did it wrong). Every hour 2 hours I drank 2 glasses of water. I replaced each meal with a disgusting shake that I made. Since, we didn’t do our grocery yet. I, then used what we have left in the fridge.
2 Carrots, 1/2 lemon, 1/2 orange, 1/4 cucumber + Honey to add taste. This is so disgusting to taste, baaaah! But, hell I care. I kept going till I consumed it the whole day. In between every drink. I had the urge to defecate. Geez! I looked like I had a diarrhea. The smell is really toxic. ( Sorry to include that) ! Every defecation, I drank 2 glasses of water to prevent myself from dehydration.
By the end of the day , I felt relief somehow.
Another year had passed. It seems like yesterday was 2014. But wow! 2016 it is. It was a roller coaster ride. As I recall, the death of my beloved grandfather, I met the love of my life, I gain and I lost friends. They said they come and go. Some stick, some not. But Regardless of all the sad and unfortunate circumstances that had happened. I found a family miles from home. I was blessed with a lot of things. I thank our Almighty Father for all the graces he showed upon me.
May this year be filled with so much blessings, happiness, more adventures, love and healthiness.
Each day is a blessing♥

We maybe far away and doesn’t see each other that much like usual friends does BUT I know deep in my heart, I LOVE YOU and that goes the same for you too. You stood by my side when I’m in the lowest point of mylife. A BIG THANKS and CHEERS TO THAT!

You showed and made me feel all the care and love that I truely deserve.This is the only day (I GUESS) that I will verbally say and write this to you that YOU ARE MY FOREVER. As you know that I dont believe to that. My heart was half opened because it was almost dying. But you patiently opened, tried to fit in and locked it. YOU ARE IN and OCCUPY EVERY CHAMBERS OF MY HEART.
My life have been a rollercoaster ride ( not all of you knew). I FELL, WOUNDED, HURT and Made wrong decisions. Hence, it made me stronger and didn’t made this a hindrance not to STAND UP again. God is with me.
I ONLY asked GOD for good health, wisdom, patience and happiness. BUT HE GAVE ME MORE. I am counting and waiting ….
