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…

Can You Be Fat And Fit?

Can You Be Fat And Fit?

I did mention about this when I talked about Body Positivity issue, and I think it is only fair now if I actually look into this a bit deeper so that I can give you a more balanced information. So, let’s just get on with this, shall we? So the question was… can you be fat and fit? In 2012 NHS published an article about the study carried out by researchers from the Karolinska Institute, Sweden, the University of Granada,…

What is Brown and White Fat?

What is Brown and White Fat?

One thing about British summer I have learned since I moved to this country is that… it doesn’t last. A couple of weeks of heatwave, and then the temperature would just drop like nobody’s business. Last week I was either getting rained on while walking to work, or having to wrap up like it’s already autumn. But don’t feel bad now, because apparently the cold weather comes with its own perk for us who’s trying to lose weight. We have…

Self Care Sunday / Weigh In Weekend

Self Care Sunday / Weigh In Weekend

I think I did a big mistake. No… I KNOW I have made a big mistake. It of course started with payday, and then the fact that Steam sent me an e-mail saying that they have a 76% discounts on The Sims 4. I thought, of course… “Heey… what’s better to treat myself on the next Self-Care Sunday, than to give myself something that I know I am going to love, like… a game?” As if I don’t have games…

The Importance of Being Colourful

The Importance of Being Colourful

As you are trying to balance your diet and your meal planning, you often heard the advice of “Eat Your Greens”. Greens are obviously good. Nobody denies the goodness of kale, broccoli, and spinach. Plus, they’re usually low in calorie content, so of course pile away. But green is not the only colour you would like to have in your plate. It has not been easy to do, but I do try to eat my rainbow. It’s not always successful,…

How Did Nigella Do It?

Celebrity weight loss is always interesting, isn’t it? One day they appeared on the telly box all curvy, and swoosh… next time you saw them for the Christmas Special, they have shrunk like magic. But… no celebrities are more interesting to me than celebrity chefs… How the hell they lose weight while being constantly surrounded by tasty food is always boggle me. One lady in particular, the sexy chef, who without fails seduces me with late night supper… Nigella Lawson….

How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

How Body Positivity Movement Has Turned Toxic

When I started this blog, I did not want to touch this subject because I know how it is affecting people. I know how people can get very defensive when this subject is brought up, and I don’t want to reopen the wound, or make it worse… but I think something needs to be said. It started when I was watching one of Dr. Mike’s video. Yes, Dr. Mike — the legitimate doctor who did study medical, and shared his…

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…

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…
