Self Care and Weigh In Sunday

Self Care and Weigh In Sunday

Happy New Year Everyone… I hope every single one of you are well, and still on track on this long and perilous journey. Gosh… 2021 started with a bang isn’t it? Hopefully it is not a 2020 v2.0. That would be poo… Anyway, it’s my first weigh in in 2021 and also the first one for awhile. So yes, I am a little bit anxious because I have abandoned the journey, and went astray to the lazyland. So… let’s see…

T’was The Week Before Christmas

T’was The Week Before Christmas

I suppose it is about time for me to give an update, but before all of those I would like to say… Happy Holiday!! I hope you have a better Christmas than us here in Norwich. Just in case you haven’t heard, we are now in tier 4 — basically in an ‘almost lockdown’ situation. I am not complaining about being on a lockdown (I think it is important to do this, and do this quick), but the fact that…

Confession Time: I Don’t Like Working Out

Confession Time: I Don’t Like Working Out

I would actually use the word ‘hate’ to describe my feeling towards exercising, but ‘hate’ is such a strong word. Instead I might just say that I really really do not like exercising… That’s the closest thing to hate I could manage. Some mornings, one of my colleagues would come to work all happy and chirpy, and being a nosy colleague, I would always ask her: ‘what’s the good news?’. Four times out of five, there were no good news….

What Is Intuitive Eating?

What Is Intuitive Eating?

Of so many food related lifestyles (if you don’t really want to call it diet approaches), one that has piqued my interest for a couple of times is this idea of Intuitive Eating. Like so many people who has tried a lot of diet in their younger years, the idea of NOT DIETING is wonderful. Intuitive Eating is basically that. The premise of Intuitive Eating is that you listen to your body, and make yourself happy with it, and you…

Self Care Sunday (week 14)

Gosh I felt like a complete loser last week. Not a very good feeling. But now that finally the headache is gone… and hopefully gone for good, I am ready for a session of self care. I am going to go for a total spoiling Sunday today. I am going to go BIG. You know why? Because it is my birthday weekend!! Both my husband and I are taking three days off, so that we can have a proper celebration….

The Importance Of An Update – Three Months And Still Going

The Importance Of An Update – Three Months And Still Going

I need to apologise again because of my inconsistency lately. Especially last week where I completely disappear for the whole week. But I am back, with some updates… First of all, of course… This blog is now three months old. Belated celebration, of course. I would like to thank everyone who are still following, and still commenting and sending messages. I always find that blogging community is one of the best support system online — especially for those who are…

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

Since my post about addiction a couple of weeks ago, I started to think a lot about crisps and my rich tea biscuits. I thought for days that maybe… maybe I am as susceptible as any other people in this planet. Food might not sound as deadly as nicotine, or alcohol — unless of course, you are allergic to it — but, we have established that you can basically get addicted to anything that makes your brain released that happy…

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Sunday!! Wow that was a very exciting week! First of all… I would like to let you know that I finally bought a car. I have been weighing the pros and cons, and of course thinking about the budget I was willing to spend on a car. I ended up buying a little cheap and cheerful Daihatsu. Hopefully this is going to last me a year, and I will be a happy bunny. I have to be honest though… Even…

Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

I cannot believe that I haven’t heard about this already. Alright… Since this post, I have been thinking that IF I weigh myself on a weekly basis, it makes a lot of sense if I count the calories on a weekly basis too. This means, I can have a lot more fun on my day off, including drinking some alcohol and eating take away food. This is what I thought… Basically if I allocate… for example… 1500kCal a day, so…

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Sometimes I struggled to choose the right way of saying stuff in this blog. I’ve decided since the very beginning that this is not a blog about dieting, and I want to maintain it that way. But I want to talk about weight loss because I personally believe that having a healthy weight is… you know… healthy. Of course there are arguments about the definition of it… I heard that a lot. BUT, I am not going to go to…
