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…

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

What Is The Difference Between Food Addiction and Binge Eating Disorder?

Since my post about addiction a couple of weeks ago, I started to think a lot about crisps and my rich tea biscuits. I thought for days that maybe… maybe I am as susceptible as any other people in this planet. Food might not sound as deadly as nicotine, or alcohol — unless of course, you are allergic to it — but, we have established that you can basically get addicted to anything that makes your brain released that happy…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
