What Is Your Body Type?

What Is Your Body Type?

I used to ignore this when I was younger, because I thought that this information was useless — mainly used by fashion magazines to help people finding clothes which looks good on their shape. And, not only useless, but also very very outdated too. There are two ways of classifying your body type. The first one is the one I heard a lot since I was younger: Apple, Pear, Rectangle, and Hourglass body type. And the second one is actually…

Self Care Sunday: Let’s Shake Things Up!

Self Care Sunday: Let’s Shake Things Up!

I’ve been thinking about changing the routine a little bit since my weigh-in Wednesday. When I started this blog, I was not working, or even planning on going back to work. So I did not consider how things would have to work around my working schedule. Last weigh-in Wednesday was a bit of an eye opener for me. I was not feeling like my upbeat self, and I wanted to stay in bed for at least half an hour longer….

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”. Which now casually translated as something like “Bon apetit” but actually has a deeper meaning like being thankful for the food they are about to eat. But unlike saying grace, this has no religious undertone. Not just consider eating as a part of life — fuelling…

How Did The K-Pop Idols Do It?

How Did The K-Pop Idols Do It?

To be honest, I am now just too old to follow the pop culture, regardless the country they’re coming from. However, it’s incredibly refreshing to see Asian faces on the front page for a change. It is interesting how they’ve become really popular. For me, however, their popularity has brought back the familiar feeling of inadequacy and self doubt. While the western culture I currently live in embraces the fuller figure, the curvaceous feminine features, the eastern culture are still…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

This was a weird week. After celebrating my one month of blogging, and all the achievements I had last week… I actually started to feel kind of blue. The week did not start well, and I had a mini disagreement with my husband. A little tear involved, and the raw emotion just flew out in the air. Wasn’t a pretty sight, I have to admit. So yeah, feeling blue. It feels like there’s a tender imaginary spot whenever I breathed….

What is PCOS?

What is PCOS?

I understand that because I don’t ‘look’ overweight, and my BMI is okay-ish, people don’t take my weight loss process that seriously. It’s okay. But, I have a good reason, which is nothing to do with vanity, to keep the number low. PCOS. According to our NHS, Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome is one common condition that affects how women’s ovaries work. Still from the same page, there is no explanation why some women are diagnosed with PCOS, however we know…

Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday

Last Sunday I stumbled across a very interesting blog, owned by a wonderful blogger, talking about Self Care Sunday. I never heard about Self Care Sunday before, and I found it as a really interesting concept. I know that dedicating one day for a self-care day doesn’t mean that you are not caring about yourself on the other days. It is a lovely that we dedicate a day to remind ourselves to be kind to ourselves. And this act of…

How Can We Eat Healthily During Recession?

How Can We Eat Healthily During Recession?

With the UK hitting the one of the worst recession, I started thinking of how some of us might struggle to choose between eating well, or paying bills. I have heard so many stories of people who opt for ready meals, and cheap takeaways because those are the cheapest, and easiest option for them. Not having enough money to afford high quality food is often blamed as the reason of why we as a country are expanding our waistline. But…

Weigh In Wednesday: One Month, Lighter and Brighter Already :)

Weigh In Wednesday: One Month, Lighter and Brighter Already :)

I cannot believe it’s been a month since I started this blog. You know what? As it happens, my first month coincides with my fourth weigh-in Wednesday, so let’s pick a priority. Weigh in first, and then we get to celebrate. Shall we? Why didn’t I think about using tables before? I don’t know, but surely this is a much better way of presenting a statistic, isn’t it? Seven hundred grams. It seems small, but for me it is good…

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting has been very popular for a very long time now. I first heard about it around six or seven years ago when one of Indonesian celebrity adopt this diet and transformed himself from a chubby magician, into a buff mentalist. Wasn’t really interested because the way he promoted it as his own hadn’t been backed up with science. Until a couple of years ago, when I actually heard about the real intermittent fasting. This time it was not…
