How to lose weight?!

image image   I gained so much weight when i got pregnant. And weighted 60kg after giving birth. Kinda frustrating,from 40kg before pregnancy to 60kg. Low self esteem, insecurities started, and sometimes i cried coz’ i saw a clothes in the mall that i super like but it wont fit me. Thankful to my husband,coz’ he’s always makes me feel like i’m the sexiest and the most beautiful girl on earth.

Like in the mall, everytime i saw a “healthy girl” (our term of fat n big ), then suddenly he’d wisphered “daku pa sya nimo” (she’s bigger than you) or ” medyo daku ka but mas gwapa kapa niya” (you’re a bit bigger but you’re more beautiful than her”… Etc..

I gave birth thru CS (ceasarian section) but as early as 3 months after giving birth i joined zumba here in our town. I know it’s kinda dangerous but i’m so frustrated and can’t wait to get back my old figure. But the moment i felt pain in my lower abdomen,i realized why on a rush?! It can wait, at the right time..

After 1 year, i got active again in zumba,fun run, jogging and sometimes badminton. Thanks to my ever supportive hubby,my partner in badminton and jogging,my fan in zumba, or even did zumba with me. To my partner in fun run and zumba cathy,thanks for the free singlet (twice)..

To lose weight is not about diet, the food you eat or juicing but it’s all about your strong determination to achieve your goal,which is to lose weight. Dieting is useless without determination and sefl control.

Here’s what i did to lose weight: (i don’t know if this is right but it works for me) :-)

* Early in the morning i drink cold water.

* I don’t eat breakfast (meal), i only ate banana or 1 pc of cracker or 1 pc bread. Or even before i don’t really eat breakfast.

* I don’t eat AM snacks.

* Lunch is normal. (I can eat all i want, no limit)

* PM snacks (sometimes)

* Small meal dinner.

* I did juicing sometimes, no meals only detox juice.

To all mom’s at home, you can also lose weight while taking care of your baby. Just turn on your favorite dance musics and dance, for sure your baby will enjoy watching you just like mine, and sometimes my baby dance with me too. You burn calories at the same time bonding with your baby. And don’t forget to put binder in your waist before dancing.:-)

You want a free sauna?, get inside your room, close all the windows and door and hide inside your comforter, believe me it works. I did that a lot of times. :-) Don’t forget, you can also burn calories while cleaning the house. And even while cooking. Yah! I dance while cooking but mostly i sing..hehehe

Party time. You can’t resist those yummy foods and cold drinks. Well, don’t starve yourself, you can eat but know your limitation, control yourself. And if you eat a lot then make sure to exercise the next day.

In my case, i ate small dinner meal at 6pm. By 9pm or 10m, my tummy starts making sounds,in short, hungry again. What i did is drink a lot of cold water and then sleep. And if ever i can’t sleep, i drink cold water again. :-)

It’s easy to gain weight but super hard to lose weight. Lucky those girls who eat a lot and yet never gain weight. Lucky me, from 60kg to 48kg now.hehehe.. :-)

To all the girls out there who dream and wish to lose weight like me, never lose hope. Keep trying. Determination and self control. And always remember, the true beauty is not about looks, makeup or clothes, true beauty comes from being yourself. We are beautiful in our own unique way. :-)

Keep smilling!!! ( O _ ^  ) winky!

#OOTD

Forever21 tube jumpshort, shopaholic blazer from sm department store, swatch watch, lacoste bag and BKK sandal..

I always go for comfy clothes regardless of brands and color. Since last thursday is a busy day for me, i wear something comfy yet classy and fashionable. Make sure you’re comfortable of what you wear especially if you’re walking most of the time. Again,this outfit is perfect for this unpredictable weather.

Teach me how to dance!

Plain shirt from #bench, short from #surplusshop, #converse shoes….

Plain,basic,cool and simple #ootd, best describe my personality. This is so me, you can see me almost everyday wearing shorts and shirt.

Got addicted with bench plain shirts, no, not only me but also my hubby, he’s more addicted to bench clothing than me.:-)   Super comfortable to wear. Plus we bought this shirt on a buy one,take one sale at bench glorietta. Plain shirt is a must have, you can’t go wrong wearing plain shirt, you can mix and match, and just be creative. It doesn’t matter how simple your outfit is, it’s how you bring yourself  to become extraordinary in a simple way.

This is what i wore during our first dance practice for our company’s family day (soon).Now you know why my title is “Teach me how to dance” :-)

Good night everyone! Till my next post!

Xoxo,

New love (terranova & lacoste)

image imageI’m not into brands, i wear anything as long as i’m comfortable with it, plus factor if i love the color. I don’t usually go to malls, especially those expensive and imported stores, i felt like i don’t belong there, and that uber expensive items is a big no no for me. It’s not that i can’t afford to buy but it’s not practical,you know a blouse for 3k?! No way…

Terranova is one of those stores which i just passed by and just a quick glimpse from ouside of whats inside their store and then babush.. Because i really thought they’re so expensive, since terranova is an italian fashion brand. But the first time i went inside terranova store in Robinson Manila, i got crazy over their season sale, well actually they’re always on sale but there are times that their prices drop to the lowest.

And yesterday is one of their super sale which you can buy a tank top and tube top for only 125 pesos, blouse 245 pesos only. A good cheap finds of an international brand,ayt?! Plus,look at my size it’s an S..;-) Visit their store at sm city cebu and ayala center cebu.

Okay,next is my all time addiction, the bag! I’m super addicted into bags. I love to collect different kinds of bags,color,etc. A king size bed full of bags, imagine how many bags are there?! That’s how i’m addicted into bags. But that was before, i know how to control now. As what i’ve said earlier i’m not into brands, as long as im comfortable, although a lot of it are branded bags.

And now,i’m addicted to lacoste bags, i want them in different colors,i know it’s kinda expensive but i’m willing to save for these babies.:-) As of now i have four lacoste bags, metallic gold, lavender, and these two new, red and navy blue. More to come pls…..

Oh by the way, my birthday is fast approaching, i will accept gifts now, ahemmm!! You already have a hint..hehehehee

Till my next post! Thank you for visiting… :-)

Everybody knows about these detox juices,for sure! These juices are made from fresh fruits and vegetables, no preservatives. I’ve been searching for a month where to buy these here in cebu coz’ i really want to try. Thanks to a friend of mine who introduce #thejuiceshop to me,(will blog about #thejuiceshop soon)..

I swear these juices are so delicious, loser me i forgot the flavors,:-) One bottle (350ml) is enough for a meal. You just need to drink a lot of water or a detox water (which i made my own). They also have a detox package for newbie and old. A lot of flavors to choose from.

It’s so hard to lose weight, i gained so much weight from my last pregnancy and now im so determined to lose weight . Good luck to me. :-)

p.s.

sori for a short post. Im not in a good condition now. So many things i want to say but my brain is not working. Till my next post..

Welcome me back!!!

Hello i’m back!!

This is actually my very first #OOTD since i gave birth. I missed blogging, i missed blabbing here whenever i’m sad n happy of course..:-) We all know that i’m so “piggy” after giving birth, so i stop doing outfit shots. And now that i’m losing weight and slowly my body goes back to it’s original form, expect a lot of #ootd..:-)

About my looks: BKK pullover top, shoebox sandal from sm moa,  shorst from robinson departmnt store.

The weather here is unpredictable (sunny morning,rainy afternoon) so i decided to wear something like this.

thanks to #janix for taking all these pictures. :-)

A moment of waiting.. (Another random thoughts)

Here i am lying in my bed waiting for my king for our chat bonding on facebook. Long distance relationship is not that sad because of facebook and other social networking like viber, twitter, instagram, skype, ym, etc.. Unfortunately in our case we can only use fb chat, but at least compare to other ship, they don’t have internet connection at all.
I missed old times, you know, letters, cards, printed pictures, etc.. I remember before i wrote him every week or sometimes everyday, send him different kinds of cards and pictures. But now, i’m kinda lazy with all that stuff,hehehe. I’l just open my facebook instead and apload pics or write him a message and there he can see it right away as soon as he open his fb.
Oh, by the way my birthday is fast approaching. Oh no! I’m almost out of the calendar!!heheheh. Anyway, no more plans for my birthday. No more salo-salo with friends. I just want to be with my family. It’s been so long that i’m so dedicated with my friends, i can’t live without my friends, i’m so loyal with my friends coz’ they’re like my sisters, but now maybe it’s time for myself. I’m on hurting stage, disappointed, and wondering why?.. Okay! Enough for this drama!
With all these drama, i found out that the best ever friend of mine is my hubby. I’m so thankful he allowed me to talk to him like a friend and not as my husband. Chatting like a real best friend, who advice you, comfort you, telling you your mistakes and say to you that no matter what happen he’s there for me all the time. How lucky am i to have him in my life. I cannot trust anyone except him.
Forgive me with all these sentiments in life,hehehe.. I’d rather write it here than talking to anybody out there. You know what i mean.. Not all people you talk cares for you, some are just too curious to know..
Time is up… Time for chat bonding with my hubby..
Thanks for reading all these nonsense post of mine..hehehe.. Till my next post..
Wala lang, pampalipas oras, while waiting… ;-)
