Feeling low

I woke up today with a beautiful morning. The weather is good, the sun's reflection from my window's curtain gave my room a bright glow. But these things didn't succeed in making me high. I feel low today. I don't have the energy, I wonder if my cycle has something to do with this again. Hmmm...

This is one of the days that I'm missing bossing.

Kiong Hee Huat Chai!

In English, Happy Happy New Year!

It's the year of the Ox and according to Feng Shui experts, those who were born under the Dragon year are the luckiest. I'm one of them! Fortunately, 2009 will be overall a more auspicious year for us with the very lucky #8 star, luck looks to be even more generous, wealth will be the theme and fortune look robust this year. I'm just so happy to know this. It gives me a sense of inspiration and courage to work harder but of course I also believe that we should not forget to ask God's guidance and blessings for all our plans because it is truly Him who can give us a good life and blessed future. HE is the only one who can really tell what's in store for us this year! 'ayt?!

I found my old watch in my closet today. My dad gave it to me long time ago. I have kept it for years but wear it only a few times. It is a Swiss, Raymond Weil watch. I've never valued it until I found out that it's really expensive. Whew! It's not working anymore so I thought I need to replace the battery with the new one. I went to the mall to have it repaired only to find out that the circuit (w/c the repair man refers to) is also broken. The cost of the battery is only P300 but the circuit repair is P1,500. What a price!!! A woman who is also there asked, "Bakit yung sa akin 300 lang, yun kanya mahal?" The repair man smiled and answered, " Swiss watch po kasi yun sa kanya " Having a second thought about the repair, I took my watch and left the place. Blaming myself for being careless. Hayayay!

Later on I've realized its sentimental value and even if I could buy a new watch that costs P1,800, I'd still want it repaired.


Upon searching on the internet, I found out that there are only four official retailers of Raymond Weil Luxury watches here in the Philippines. The nearest from my place is in Megamall. The name of the store is Chronos. I might go there next time to inquire about the repair.

If you can't beat 'em, BURN 'em!

What prompted me to lose weight was when most of my clothes doesn't fit me anymore. When one of my friends got married last year, I spent 2 weeks going back and forth to the mall just to look for the perfect dress. I was so frustrated that I ended up using my old dress. I know that I have to do something. So I joined Fitness First with the hope that I could bring back my old shape. Well, I didn't fail! For the first 3 months, the result was really significant and satisfactory. I've gradually lost a total of 8 lbs which is about 0.70 lbs/week.


NO DIET PLEASE! Eating is my passion and dieting has no appeal to me. When I started my fitness program, I was advised to eat every 2-3 hours ( small frequent feeding) which is good for me. This is to increase my metabolism. When I started working out, I noticed that I'm actually eating more than before. I indulge myself to my cravings and eat anything I want. The only thing is that I have to burn those calories after ha!ha!ha! Well, it's better that way than to eat a lot and not burn them.

My Program
You might be wondering what kind of program I'm into. Here it is.
20 mins- treadmill
1 hr - cycling (this is the ultimate calorie killer coz it burns 400-900 calories per
session depending on your effort)
1 hr - weight lifting known as the body pump ( the best way to shape up... burns 200 calorie per session)

I do this 4-5 times a week and yes this is how sincere I am.

The result is losing weight of not lesst han 0.50 lbs a week. Plus a sense of happiness every after session. Our body releases a happy hormone known as endorphin especially during enjoyable exercise. It relieves depression, brings sweet sleep and is the most powerful single factor in maintaining optimum health. As a rule, happy people have better than average health.

What an ecstatic feeling after!

Let's blame the Hormones!

I saw this line from one of my kabl@gs and I thought it's a nice title for this post haha!!!

Let's face it! Sometimes we have so many issues that we can't solve. For the past weeks I've been facing some difficulties that involves my emotions leading to depression and confusion. I guess I'm just in need of comfort when I go ballistic and I can't find anyone who would calm me. Sigh.

So I called bossing (my husband) and asked for a comforting wisdom and advice. It's a good thing that he understands me so much, giving me comfort and love. Secrets aren't in our vocabulary. We are partners, we are friends... That makes me very open to him... That makes me love him more. He has his own way of explaining things to me. Making me see every situations in different perspectives.

Anyway, since I've overcomed my sleepless nights and my hormones has come to stability. Bossing gave me the perfect reason to be happy. He says I might be preggy this year so we have to take our vacation in Palawan to the fullest *_*... I've been dying to go to there but it didn't push through last summer. I guess it will now.


Sigh. Don't you think it's the hormones that makes me go insane sometimes?.. Let's blame it anyway! My PMS has come to pass! wink*
