What Is… This…?

What Is… This…?

I am trying to think of something I would like to talk about… and I genuinely struggled. Not that I am running out of idea of what to write on Mondays, because I have a list of things I want to cover… but my mind is not here today. Or… these past couple of weeks, actually. I worry. A lot. I haven’t felt like this since the beginning of lock down six months ago. SIX MONTHS!! Has it been half…

Self Care Sunday (Week 10)

Self Care Sunday (Week 10)

Seriously? It is Sunday again? I am not really sure what has happened to this week, but it went so fast. And suddenly… here we are. Right… guys… I am in a quandary. I would like some input, and I hope you could help me decide. We already have a car in our family, and it is my husband’s. I am not insured to drive it, and to be honest I am not comfortable driving his car, as this is…

How Did The Duchess of Cambridge Do It?

How Did The Duchess of Cambridge Do It?

Both of my sisters have been confirmed to have PCOS, so they have a hard time to lose their pregnancy weight even after two years after they gave birth to my nieces. Of course, I have hinted this blog to them *cough*promotion*cough*, but I realised I haven’t covered the problem they’re having. To get rid the weight they gained during their pregnancy. So I searched around, and one particular pregnancy story interested me because… well, because somehow it popped up…

How Do You Say No?

How Do You Say No?

Alrighty… today I need some help. I have this teeny tiny little problem with saying ‘no’ especially at work, and as much as it doesn’t affect my job too much… sometimes it just went really bad with my meal plan. How so? As some of you probably have heard, I am working as a chef. One of the perks by working around food is obviously the ability to have nice food within the reach. However if you want to control…

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

Well… well… well… are we going to start jumping to the trendy diets bandwagon now? I hope not. However, I found it helpful to equip myself with enough information, and insight about different diets’ approaches. Especially low carbs diets like Keto, Paleo, and Atkins diets. The reason why I am looking into the low carbs diet is because of PCOS which runs in my family. Since all my sisters are diagnosed with it, I am more than likely to have…

Self Care Sunday: It’s Been Two Months!

This blog now has over 100 followers!! This blog is a journey, and I am glad I have awesome people accompanying me along the way. Thank you so so much for sharing this journey with me.

The Importance Of A Good Night Sleep

The Importance Of A Good Night Sleep

I haven’t had enough sleep for the past two weeks. I don’t have a good reason for that, and I am not going to make excuses for such a bad habit. However that sleep deprivation was reflected in my weigh in result. It might seem to be counter intuitive, because sleeping is identical with being inactive. But in reality, not having enough sleep can actually sabotage your weight loss journey. What I found out when I learned about BMR is…

Talking About Addiction

Talking About Addiction

After a couple of days of thinking about this, I have decided to give it a go, and talk about it. I am not sure yet how this is going to help me or anyone else, but probably someone can take an advantage of this particular post. Like I said last time, I don’t get addicted easily. I used to smoke a lot, even chain smoke at some point, but quitting smoking was a breeze for me. My husband, on…

Self-spoiling Sunday

Self-spoiling Sunday

I would like to say that yesterday was a self care day, but when I looked back… I realised it is way more than just caring for myself. I was actually spoiling myself. The best thing is, I am not even sorry for that. Warning: TMI I was on my period, and I was feeling incredibly uncomfortable for the last couple of days at work. I have decided when I walked out the door on my last day before the…

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

I was tempted to use seven question marks when I wrote that title. Of all celebrity chef’s weight loss stories, Paul Hollywood’s weight loss has probably boggled me the most. As someone whose job is literally to eat cakes and pastries, it is just unbelievable that ANYONE can lose the amount of weight he did. Thing is… he did not look that big to start with. Through the years of seeing him on The Great British Bake Off, I actually…
