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…

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…

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 Did Nigella Do It?

How Did Nigella Do It?

Celebrity weight loss is always interesting, isn’t it? One day they appeared on the telly box all curvy, and swoosh… next time you saw them for the Christmas Special, they have shrunk like magic. But… no celebrities are more interesting to me than celebrity chefs… How the hell they lose weight while being constantly surrounded by tasty food is always boggle me. One lady in particular, the sexy chef, who without fails seduces me with late night supper… Nigella Lawson….

Self Care Sunday: Let’s Shake Things Up!

Self Care Sunday: Let’s Shake Things Up!

I’ve been thinking about changing the routine a little bit since my weigh-in Wednesday. When I started this blog, I was not working, or even planning on going back to work. So I did not consider how things would have to work around my working schedule. Last weigh-in Wednesday was a bit of an eye opener for me. I was not feeling like my upbeat self, and I wanted to stay in bed for at least half an hour longer….

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

How Your Food Culture Affects Your Relationship With Food

“Itadakimasu” Of all food culture in the world, I love the Japanese the most. Before they eat, they would put their hands together in front of their food, bow a little, and say “Itadakimasu”. Which now casually translated as something like “Bon apetit” but actually has a deeper meaning like being thankful for the food they are about to eat. But unlike saying grace, this has no religious undertone. Not just consider eating as a part of life — fuelling…

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….
