Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday

I have decided that this week self care would involve layers and layers of warm stuff. And hibernate-level of physical activity. I have to admit though… that the lack of physical activity might have affected my weight loss plan. I’ve been eating the way I did before, but it seems like I am now hitting a plateau. The only observable thing that has changed since the last time I made a great progress is my job. I was working, and…

How Do You Do It Wrong?

How Do You Do It Wrong?

If you are a regular social media user you must be familiar with these “You’ve Been Peeling Banana The Wrong Way” sort of clickbait links. And then if just for the sake of it, you actually clicked one of those links, they would come up with the most impractically outrageous ways of doing things… from squishing lots of plum tomatoes between plates, or using used plastic bottles to suck egg yolks… One of those ‘kitchen hacks’ I hate the most…

What is OMAD?

What is OMAD?

Weight loss community is a world full of jargon and abbreviation. I mean, you’d see these CICO, TDEE, IF… and had no idea what these experienced dieters were talking about. And then they broke down the abbreviation, and you thought… ah… those things, I’ve done those already. Like OMAD. Scrolling through both wordpress reader and instagram to get some inspiration of what I would cook for the day, I often come across this hashtag. I kept thinking, what the hell…

Self Care Sunday

Self Care Sunday

These last couple of days felt a little bit scary to me. This pandemic has turned a lot of people including me into a semi hypochondriac. From the constant need to wipe out everything I touched, to pumping hand gel to my already drying hands… to feeling immensely annoyed when my husband did not sing happy birthday while washing his hands. That’s not true… I wasn’t annoyed, I was anxious. Immensely anxious when I thought my husband did not wash…

Six Months!

Six Months!

This blog has turned six months now. It is weird that every time I reached a milestones like this, I would either think: “What?! Six Months already?” or “What?! Only six months? That feels like forever!” Or both at the same time. I think the fact that we are living in the weirdest time of our lifetime, we cannot help having this time-confusion feeling. I tried to think about last year, and remembered so little as if it has happened…

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…

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…
