What is Hypoglycaemia?

What is Hypoglycaemia?

Hypoglycaemia (phew that was a difficult word to type…) is also known as low blood sugar. Not just low as in slightly lower than average, but when your blood sugar level suddenly dropped, and you will… I mean you will know when that happens. To me and my mother, the drop of blood sugar level would start a weird sickness almost like motion sickness and dizziness… or even when it dropped more drastically we can feel a bit faint. Not…

Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday

Sometimes when I write my blog, I also wonder how other bloggers do theirs. As in… Do they reset their weekly counter from the beginning of the year, so this Sunday would be the 2nd week of the year (or 3rd?). Or… since we are just keep going on, so this Sunday would be the 24th (..? I actually lost count). Or does it matter? I mean I have to admit that I do care about what other people think…

The Importance of Routines

The Importance of Routines

If there is one thing I miss so much about my pre-lockdown life is probably the daily routine. Having a predictable day is boring, but quoting Ryan Reynolds in The Hitman’s Bodyguard: Boring is Good. I like Ryan Reynolds, but who doesn’t? Anyway… where was I? Oh look how easy I got distracted. I mean I was ready to make a full wholesome post about the need to stick on a routine and then there was Ryan Reynolds… and then…

What is Comfort Food?

What is Comfort Food?

When someone mentions Comfort Food, the first thing that pops into my mind is sugar. That would be followed with a lot of unhealthy snacks, high carbs and fat food. And then when I really really think hard I probably decide that Sunday Roast or Barbecue can be categorised as comfort food too. And minutes later, I would start thinking… are those food going to give me comfort? Why? I don’t think those food would make me fee comfortable at…

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…

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…
