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…

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…

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…

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,…

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…
