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….

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Self Care Sunday (week 12)

Sunday!! Wow that was a very exciting week! First of all… I would like to let you know that I finally bought a car. I have been weighing the pros and cons, and of course thinking about the budget I was willing to spend on a car. I ended up buying a little cheap and cheerful Daihatsu. Hopefully this is going to last me a year, and I will be a happy bunny. I have to be honest though… Even…

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Talking About Your Weight Loss Goal

Sometimes I struggled to choose the right way of saying stuff in this blog. I’ve decided since the very beginning that this is not a blog about dieting, and I want to maintain it that way. But I want to talk about weight loss because I personally believe that having a healthy weight is… you know… healthy. Of course there are arguments about the definition of it… I heard that a lot. BUT, I am not going to go to…

What Are Food Allergy, Intolerance, and Poisoning?

What Are Food Allergy, Intolerance, and Poisoning?

So you went on a great weekend out with friends (within the rule of six, plenty of social distancing, and with masks on because you and your friends are decent people…). You guys went to a fancy restaurant, and had an awesome dining experience. The dishes were not only pretty and instagramable, but also very very tasty… But on your way home you felt a bit sick. Something is not right. And you suspected that it was something on your…

Self Care Sunday (week 11)

Self Care Sunday (week 11)

Oh my… goodness me… What the hell is going on? Am I time warping or something, because the last time I remember was thinking of how awesome it would be to buy a car. A week has gone since then and… I still haven’t decided to buy it yet. I am such a wuss when it is about spending some money… I mean… when it is about slaughtering the piggy bank, I suddenly turn vegan. Anyway… How are you guys?…

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…

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…

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,…

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…
