Bacon or Bagel for Breakfast?

Here's an interesting infographics from Massive Health. The way I understand it, it just want to convey that choosing the right food does not necessary mean staying away from fat or carbohydrates. Based on my readings lately, there are good and bad carbo and fats. And this infographics says it all.

6 drinks I must have every day

Based on an article in Yahoo today, there are six drinks one must have to fight ageing, and when is the best time of the day to drink them. 

Water as first in the list must be taken any time of the day especially when you feel dehydrated. Dehydration does not only show in our skin or in our eyes. It shows also in the internal organs. I can attest to that when I went under the knife and my doctor was worried with how dehydrated my liver, gall bladder, and stomach are.

Changing Lanes

Okay, I quit working full time few months ago. I got tired of it. I felt I sacrificed my life - happiness, health, and all to much that I lost myself elsewhere. I had to stop and ask: Where am I leading? Do I really to continue with this? What I really want to do with my life? I am close to being 40 and I know some people who have awakened from long sleep and realized they want to do something else. I will be away from the city for some sort of soul searching. I have some things playing on my mind on what I really want to do and I want to start with myself. I have been big all my life. I grew bigger and now close to 300lbs. I feel depressed. I cannot wear clothes I want. I cannot do activities that I have imagining to do. And I want to get out from this body size. I want to weigh 150 lbs at the end of 2012. I want to make clothes. No, I want to upscale clothes. I want to focus on making crafts I can sell online. I want to work with my hands. I want to start from there. Whew! This decision means that I need to leave my family behind and think only about me, myself, and I. It took me almost 15 years to realize this. Sadly, I am in a different difficult situation now.

Sugar, anyone?

When I think of drinking cola, this will remind me how many sugar cubes I am actually putting in my body system.

Do You Take Enough Water Every Day?

When I went under the knife two years ago, my doctor learned how dehydrated I was prior to that. My internal organs manifested it. My liver was so dehydrated. She strongly advised me to keep myself hydrated. With my weight, I am supposed to have three liters of water. I never had a way to find out if I really did have even at least  a liter a day. Well, this is a very interesting way to make sure you drink up enough water a day. I stumbled upon this in Pinterest.com. (Yeah, I am another Pinterest addict.) 
So each container can hold up to a liter. Having three of this, I can split up my required 3 liters daily water intake. What do you think?

Pounds to Go, Pounds Lost

This is very interesting visual representation of the pounds to lose and lost. I am thinking to do the same but I guess in monetary form. I need to lose 100 pounds. For every pound lost, I will save Php5.00. By the time I lost the 100-pound challenge, I already have Php500.00. 


The past months have been full of challenges and depression. I ballooned to 270lbs. I will be living outside Manila to rethink and find myself. I lost it somewhere I couldn't remember. When I get back, I am determined to lose 100lbs. It may take me a number of months. But by December 2012, I will be 170lbs.
