My Ideal Weight Reached!

I cannot remember exactly how many times I’ve mentioned working my heart out to achieve the ideal weight for my height and body type. This is because I have been underweight all my life and I have been skinny ever since. I would like to happily share that I have already achieved this and maintained it for the past year already!

With the help of a vitamin supplement, Ling Zhi, I was able to attain my ideal weight in just a span of 2 months. Actually, I started gaining weight by the 2nd week of taking Ling Zhi. I could say that my food intake increased significantly well and I noticed that of me. I stopped Ling Zhi by the time I reached 95lbs., and this was some time December 2016. From then on I just maintained my appetite, well that’s the only thing that I was able to maintain ‘coz my sleeping pattern was bad since there were weeks when I would lack sleep due to work and other errands for the house.

I’m just so happy now that from 80lbs since I was in highschool, I am now at 100lbs. I know many are working their ass of to lose some weight while I’m on the other side of the fence. I guess we all have our own battles and goals to face and live with. Mine was something I thought was hopeless already, but I guess this time, after so many attempts and loads of different multivitamins, the odds were on my side. Good thing I didn’t give up. Below are some of my photos from then being skinny to now at my ideal weight:

What they say is true. As long as you focus and work hard for your goals, you will reach it in due time. Good luck on all your goals, readers. God bless.

The Stay-At-Home Me

Hello there! Well I’m back here again! Gosh I missed blogging. I remember saying a few months ago that I’m gonna be more active here, but unfortunately some things just screw up your plans.  What am I saying here?  Well there’s the case of mismanagement of time, simple laziness, and people who would rob you of good motivation, hehehe.

Anyway, I’d like to move my self to take charge and make things change.  I wanna do this before 2014 starts and everybody would be so into drafting their New Year’s Resolution list.  So mine’s gonna be a tiny bit different.

So, yeah here we go!

The Me as of Nov 2013

I’ve been making resolutions lists or goals lists like forever, and unfortunately have not actively worked on each item I had on every list.  There was actually one list I’ve made wherein I was able to achieve around 9 items of the 35 items I had there.  Really bad huh?  Oh well,  I’ve got a lot of things on pending, and right now I think I finally have the chance to really work on them – I hope!  I’m just praying that the nanny I got this time would stay with us until such time that my kids can be independent enough.

Honestly, I’ve been struggling with the idea that I have to be a stay-at-home mom for most part of the year now.  I actually didn’t consider the possibility of that when I was pregnant with my second child.  The reason is that I didn’t want to underestimate myself for having kids and still be able to keep up with my  job.  Career-wise you can say that I am a late bloomer, hey actually I’m a late bloomer to just about everything, hehehe!  So I was trying my best to be a “career mom”.

Like many other mothers out there who’ve been through the same situation that I am in now, things weren’t going the way I wanted and planned them to, so I submitted to the idea.  I did several things to convince myself that staying at home could work for me.  I did things like baking, cooking, reading novels, though in digital form, and even video blogging.  Those were some of the efforts which I thought was fun doing especially that I’m not worried with some deadlines or meetings.  Of course it is given that I get to spend enormous amount of time with my children.  That my friend is priceless indeed.  I’d agree with anyone who’d say that that is the ultimate perk of staying at home.  But my friend, there are also challenges.

As an observation, when you are in the office, you are able to manage your time according to the tasks that you’ve planned for yourself based on the urgency of tasks or on your prioritization.  At home, that is a challenge for me.  Some experts would say that you can apply time management at home and with your kids.  It’s actually good that you can introduce your kids to time management at their very young age, but I have observed that kids, even though you train or discipline them while still young, have their own moods and coping mechanisms.  They have their own style in taking their time to adapt to change and development, and a parent like me has to be sensitive and attentive to that.  And I am admitting that I almost always fail in doing so.  Knowing that now I’d say that staying at home is kinda like a new job opportunity for me to take on.

May 1, Labor Day

Today as the country is celebrating Labor Day, our company decided to go on an outing. Here at Iba, Zambales we started the day with a feastful breakfast of rice, longganisa, daing na bangus, tocino, and tapa. Once again, I failed to take a picture hehehe
