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…

That Extra Stress You Don’t Need

That Extra Stress You Don’t Need

Dammit! I’ve almost done it again. Apologies for missing last Sunday’s weigh in update. I was so consumed by this new extra stress I knew I shouldn’t have burdened myself with. But let me tell you a silly story which started it all… If you are living in England, you might have heard that we have been under this lockdown measure since boxing day last year. If you haven’t heard about it, well… now you have. One of the Covid…

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…

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…

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…
