Reasons of Losing Weight

There are a thousand reasons why people gain weight and want to lose weight. And I can say I can relate to every reason one has to say. People turn to food for comfort and not noticed that all what they ate have loved all parts of their body. 
I know this. I am familiar with every bit of this. I am this. I can relate because I am what I am talking about. 

Every time I have the chance to watch Heavy on TV, I often find myself crying for small success of those in the show. I also cry for failures they go through. I also cry when they cry while sharing what they have gone through. Some of them embarrass to walk in the streets because people look at them and call them names. But they need to go out and get life because there are lives depending on them. 
To this date, I am not aware how much I have weighed. But I know I have gone bigger because I can no longer wear my last season's clothes and that is terribly bad. 
I have to stop now. I am starting to cry.

Coconut Juice and Weight Loss

I found myself few days ago complaining about lower back ache. This I can contribute to less chances of going to the CR to pee. My workstation is a few-minute walk to the comfort room in the next building within the compound. And when I am too focused with work, I tend to forget about going to the loo and do my thing. 

So on my third day now, I asked my mother to get me fresh coconut juice in the morning. During my first day,I had no choice but to go to the loo to pee. Or else, my body will retain all the water. When I checked online on other advantages of drinking coconut juice, I was surprised to find out other benefits.

Exercises for the Terminally Busy

Here's a good read based on the article written by Leo Babuta. from, written by Leo Babauta. Like the writer, I lack time to exercise. I spend more hours seated the whole day. The same reason why I opted to do the LRT1-2 Challenge. I think the walking time I will spend from LRT 1 to LRT 2 will be a good help for me to exercise my legs and shake up my whole body.

Spinach in Oyster Sauce

This is one of my easy-to-cook vegetable recipe. Sometimes if spinach is not available, I use kangkong or water spinach. With two bunches of spinach leaves, I saute few pieces of crushed garlic until they are golden brown. Then I put the spinach leaves. Put oyster sauce to my heart's desire, then simmer a bit. 
That's it! And that it what I am having for dinner tonight.

Starting from Scratch

I have grown bigger. Yes. Since I went into freelancing last year, I usually spend more than 12 hours in front of the computer with breaks to eat lunch, snacks, and dinner. I usually sleep late too.

Since January of this year, I am back on getting some Manila air by commuting from work to home. Yes, I am back in circulation. Actually for the past six months already. But since I am scared of holduppers and slippery pavements, I prefer to take a cab from work to home and vice versa. Then spend most of the time working in front of the computer. Still a sedentary life ... What did I expect? As predicted, I grew bigger. The Big Lady is still a big one and a bigger one... 

I had to review my activities for the previous months. I need to compare them with the activities that I did few years ago that I lost almost 40 lbs in a matter of three months. There were only two activities that helped me to trim down a lot - walking and calorie counting.
