Before

For the month of June, I’ve been having lots of “cheat days”.  I usually have 4 days of diet and 3 days off.  And I have maintained my weight that way.  But I just want to shed off this 10 lbs so I can finally have my goal weight.  So starting tomorrow I will go on a healthy diet without “breaks”.  I can always have some cravings whenever they strike but of course with the right proportion.    This time I really have to eat really healthy food to meet all of my needed daily nutrients.  There will be lots of fruits, veggies, white meat, fish, sweet potato and food supplement for calcium, potassium and magnesium.

That’s my opinion anyway…I’m not recommending it.  If you have comments or concerns then feel free to share it with me so I would know the right way of eating healthy. 🙂

By the tenth week,  I would be enjoying my more gorgeous body then…haha! 🙂

And oh btw, I had my workout this afternoon–jogging in place.  I was able to do it for 1.5 hours.  Maybe, I can run in a marathon with proper training.  I may not be a fast runner but maybe I can complete the race with endurance.  What do you think? 🙂

Wedding

2 Comments

I attended my friend’s wedding last night.   Another chance to wear a dress 🙂  Some of my highschool classmates were there, too.

I was touched when my friend’s now hubby cried after they were pronounced husband and wife.  Pat hugged Nets and he kinda cried.  It was touching.  I was relieved to know that he really loves my friend.  I guess that’s how it is, when it’s your friend, you just want them to be really happy especially when it comes to marriage because there is no divorce here in my side of town so marriage should really be permanent.

It was also raining yesterday morning–as in it was raining hard.  I got worried for a while cause it would ruin the wedding.  Good thing, thank God that when I arrived in my hometown, the sun was shining and the sky was clear.  It was such a beautiful day.

My make-up was not really okay but then that’s okay I guess…what can I do? 🙂

Tomato

Joanne and I had some lessons on rice.  We checked out the array of rice at the supermarket.  I saw some black rice and I remembered wanting to try it.  This weekend, I have to buy some.  She showed me the basmati rice.  It was indeed long-grained.  Maybe one day, after trying the black rice, I’d try the basmati next.

This morning, I also told her some technique in wearing a make-up.  She also loves make-up…well…she’s crazy over make-up.  I remember accompanying her to buy some expensive make-up.

We had lunch at this Italian place and I ordered pasta with tomato sauce.  I don’t really like sour food without a touch of saltiness or sweetness, but I have to mind what I eat and so I chose tomato sauce over alfredo sauce.  I was surprised I was able to finish the plate.

This evening while reading blogs I’ve read something about sardines and chicken.  SARDINES got stuck on my mind and the taste of that tomato sauce.  So tomorrow I’m planning on eating sardines and tomato.

I realized that I am beginning to love tomato.  Lycopene galore! 😉

I’m glad most of my projects are nearly complete now.  I feel good.

This afternoon, I volunteered myself to get the copy of our readings for the assignment for my MS due in July.  I have my path in mind so I could accomplish all I have to accomplish at school and others.  However, I miscommunicated with my classmate and I ended up going to the wrong photocopy station.  I had to go back and forth.  But I was still glad because I had a mini-workout, sort of like brisk walking.  I still felt good though despite walking under the heat of the sun.  My body was screaming for water.

In school, we took this personality/psychological test.  My result was interesting.  I guess that added up to making me feel happy because a psychological test like that could really be accurate.  Nice!

I also discovered some new nice blogs.  I’m inspired. 🙂  Moreover, the new theme Koi is so beautiful.  I’ve seen this theme before and I’m glad they finally included this theme here in wordpress.

And right now, I feel so lucky to have met E who loves me so much.  Life is so good. 🙂

Remembering Dad

I’ve been pursuing a dream for several years now.  And recent events have made me think that maybe that dream I’ve been pursuing has a reason why it isn’t for me, at least right now.

Some people told my Mom that the reason why I can’t have my dream is because my Dad won’t allow me to.

See, my Dad has been gone for 6 years now.  He died of hemorrhagic stroke.  Hearing that comment made me think of the universe and a much greater power that prevent me from making my dream come true.

For years that is what I’ve been thinking.

Until recently, I’ve realized something.

My Dad is not the cause why I can’t have my dream.  He’s even SUPPORTING me even though he’s been gone a long time.  The pension he left my Mom has been a great help for me to have my dreams come true.  My Mom has been using that to finance my dream.  Even if he’s gone, he still continues to help us.  Why wouldn’t he want to have my dream come true?  He’s been there for me all this time.  He’s still that kind soul who SUPPORTS us all the way.

I’m SO LUCKY and BLESSED to have parents like them.  Both of them are exceptional individuals.

And to my Dad, THANK YOU AND I LOVE YOU!!!

This afternoon, after watching Australia’s Next Top Model’s several episodes, I’ve tried having a catwalk.  Being the silly me I strutted while going to a nearby store and buy some snacks.  On my way back, I saw my uncle and after greeting him, he asked me to approach him.

“You’re looking pretty,” Uncle D told me.  Then he added, “you’ve lost weight…”

“Yeah, I went on a diet…”

“And your complexion seems fairer, what have you done with your skin?”

“Oh that’s make-up…”  I answered.  Then we chatted for at least a minute before excusing myself so I could go home.

That’s nice.:)

Another story, during dinner, my Mom told me, “What’s your weight now? You’re looking thin, enough of your diet now…”

Haha…she used to stop me from eating too much, now she’s asking me to stop my diet.  I just told her that I have 10 pounds still to lose–my goal weight is the weight I had in college.  I love her.  She knows balance.

I have assignments to do.  Hopefully, I will be able to finish them so I can relax a bit tomorrow with friends.
