Back for Good...

Follow my blog with Bloglovin Yes, you read it right. I have been away for too long. Been through a lot of these months ..eeerr... years that I have been away from your eyes. I preferred actually to stay away while I was trying to pick up pieces of me where I left them. But the good thing about picking up those pieces is I was able to pick some things up that added to what has become of me now. Emotions, maturity, wisdom, and more. So I guess it is indeed true that life really starts when you get 40. Well, I'll soon be 42. Anyway, what is more important now is that I am back! weeee

16 not 8 glasses of water every day

I am dehydrating myself because I am not drinking properly. 

Yes, you read it right. At 264lbs, I should be drinking half of my body weight in ounce to totally hydrate myself. Now, I am thinking how am I going to drink 16 glass of water (250ml)  if I usually fail to drink 8 glasses of water every day?

I need to drink a glass of water in every hour that I am awake for 16 hours.
Whew!

Diced tomatoes
Minced garlic 
Alugbati leaves

Saute ginger, tomato, onion, and garlic in a cap of cooking oil. (Yes, I use the cap of my bottle of cooking oil to measure the amount of oil I will in sauteing.)

Let it simmer then add the alugbati leaves. 
Turn off the stove and let the leaves wilt in the remaining heat.

One Day At a Time: No Colas or sugar-filled drinks

I am starting this week to avoid any sugar-filled or sweetened drinks like soft drink, cola, iced tea, and the likes. I know I can easily do this because I am not really into cola-drinking. I have to be contended with drinking cold water.    

I realized sugar is the most culprit of all culprits in a diet when I stumbled upon these charts comparing different drinks.



Who wouldn't be crazy when you see these charts of comparison?

So in line with avoiding sugar-loaded drinks, I will not use sugar and cream with my coffee.. Yeah, black coffee for me starting this week.
