Self Care Sunday (week 14)

Self Care Sunday (week 14)

Gosh I felt like a complete loser last week. Not a very good feeling. But now that finally the headache is gone… and hopefully gone for good, I am ready for a session of self care. I am going to go for a total spoiling Sunday today. I am going to go BIG. You know why? Because it is my birthday weekend!! Both my husband and I are taking three days off, so that we can have a proper celebration….

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…

Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

Calorie Cycling: How I Solve My CICO Problem

I cannot believe that I haven’t heard about this already. Alright… Since this post, I have been thinking that IF I weigh myself on a weekly basis, it makes a lot of sense if I count the calories on a weekly basis too. This means, I can have a lot more fun on my day off, including drinking some alcohol and eating take away food. This is what I thought… Basically if I allocate… for example… 1500kCal a day, so…

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

What are Keto, Paleo, and Atkins Diets?

Well… well… well… are we going to start jumping to the trendy diets bandwagon now? I hope not. However, I found it helpful to equip myself with enough information, and insight about different diets’ approaches. Especially low carbs diets like Keto, Paleo, and Atkins diets. The reason why I am looking into the low carbs diet is because of PCOS which runs in my family. Since all my sisters are diagnosed with it, I am more than likely to have…

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

How Did Paul Hollywood Do It?

I was tempted to use seven question marks when I wrote that title. Of all celebrity chef’s weight loss stories, Paul Hollywood’s weight loss has probably boggled me the most. As someone whose job is literally to eat cakes and pastries, it is just unbelievable that ANYONE can lose the amount of weight he did. Thing is… he did not look that big to start with. Through the years of seeing him on The Great British Bake Off, I actually…

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…

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…

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

Weigh In Wednesday (week 5)

This was a weird week. After celebrating my one month of blogging, and all the achievements I had last week… I actually started to feel kind of blue. The week did not start well, and I had a mini disagreement with my husband. A little tear involved, and the raw emotion just flew out in the air. Wasn’t a pretty sight, I have to admit. So yeah, feeling blue. It feels like there’s a tender imaginary spot whenever I breathed….

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

What Is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting has been very popular for a very long time now. I first heard about it around six or seven years ago when one of Indonesian celebrity adopt this diet and transformed himself from a chubby magician, into a buff mentalist. Wasn’t really interested because the way he promoted it as his own hadn’t been backed up with science. Until a couple of years ago, when I actually heard about the real intermittent fasting. This time it was not…
