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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
