Our Part

It's good to know that the pharmacists are doing their part in helping out the victims of this calamity. Today and tomorrow, some of our staff go and will go to PMA near SM North and help in sorting medicines to be donated to those victims of Ondoy. Medicines are badly needed and I hope we can help these victims heal.

Day 7

Daisy showed me the weighing scale in our office. Of course, I immediately got on top of it to see my weight. So far, my efforts are paying off. It's not really easy for me considering others are kinda discouraging me. Counting calories makes my stomach churn which makes me visit the bathroom more often. People are telling me to just exercise. But knowing myself, I know I can't really stick to that. And I know that exercise alone is not effective. And besides I want to lose some weight by cutting my calorie intake. My weight is not normal. I'm obese according to the newest definition of obesity--I'm overweight based on BMI but waist circumference is more accurate. When I'm already on my normal weight, I plan on exercising and embracing the healthy stuff.

Do you know that the "healthy stuff" have higher calories compared to the regular ones? That is based on my observation from my recent trip to the grocery. And I realized that it is more practical to buy food from the grocery instead of just eating at fast food. I bought a can opener, (Shirley no need to give me one...ibang gift na lang...hehe) some canned goods--Tuna and meatloaf and powdered nestea.

It's also a good idea to have my own menu so I won't have to compute for calories every single day that people can't tolerate me talk about my diet anymore. I can also include some desserts--and it's cheaper, too.

I don't allow any cheat day yet. Maybe next week when I can work out once a week.

I hope I can have a normal weight soon.

Food, Health, Diet

I just finished taking my night bath when my roomate gave me the cake she saved for me. I guess it was a week already. But the cake was still okay so I ate it. Talk about eating despite fullness. I guess that has become a skill--no wonder I am so heavy now.

Speaking of food, I was daydreaming while taking a bath and I thought what would happen to me when I go to my dream place--how would I eat, what would I eat, who would cook for me, how would I cook, should I start learning how to cook or just change my staples of food into veggies...naks naman!

I want to go on a diet again. Counting calories has been effective on me. I steadily lose weight. 1 lb per week. And lately I've been choosing fish or chicken over pork and beef. Maybe it's because I hate the inconvenience of eating hard meat--pieces got stuck between my teeth when I eat pork. I hate the feeling so I'd rather eat chicken or fish.

When I'm at home and there's a tuna (Century Tuna Hot and Spicy), I'd choose it over the prepared food which annoyed Ka Leony because she hated opening canned goods, because we have no can opener.

With this gradual change, I think I am becoming ready to go on a diet again. I will visit myfitnesspal.com now.

My Craving

Ever since the Calea cake experience, I've craved for another slice of chocolate cake...and this afternoon, even if I have a tight budget, i roamed the mall for a worthy slice of cake...=)

And I found a bakeshop at the 2nd floor.  And there are lots of chocolate cakes to choose from at an affordable price.  Next time, I'll try another of its cakes.=)


Going out makes me think that life is sweet. It's enough to deal with tough conditions, everyone needs to unwind. So thanks to the people I love to see, I saw you again. Okay lang gabihin o magpaumaga kung kayo naman ang kasama ko.

Now I have to look for a cake similar to Calea's
