applying love in our life

BARBEQUED, BAKED, FRIED AND ACNES?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I had the most wonderful outing along the beach with a group of close friends recently. We barbequed, we ate, we drank until the wee hours of the morning. Stephanie even came with her special secret recipe – baked cheesy crabs in shell. Marianne contributed some fried nuggets and fries. Johnny bought quite a lot of peanuts and snacks to keep us munching away throughout the night. It was real fun letting the hair down for the weekend without worrying about work pressures.

Unfortunately, I had some complication days after the wild night out. Zits after zits began popping out from my face, neck and even body. I felt so embarrassed even to meet up with my colleagues and clients at work. I tried applying zit creams but the zits got even bigger until my face looked swollen. I was wondering whether it was the food that I had taken during the BBQ outing that caused me to have some food reaction towards my skin.

Could it be the lack of rest or lack of consuming more water during the party? What about the dryness from the breeze of the night or even the consumption of fatty and oily food? Although I had taken a few days of leaves to keep myself from being humiliated further, the zits just won’t go off. In fact it popped up even more until I have to seek acne treatments from the professionals. Do you know what was the analysis given? I had my pores all clogged up with the oil from the BBQ and some bacteria had set in to make it even worst. This is one hard lesson I had learned that my hands have to be clean always whenever I want to touch my face.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

IT IS TIME TO BURN THAT FAT AWAY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was down with fever for 10 days just a few weeks ago and I lost 15lbs. I was happy with the lost but this is not what I should be doing. I should not be torturing the weak body to sustain more injuries in the future. A healthy body would not get sick so easily. To rectify the problem, I started taking in more nutrients and healthy diets. The longer I went into the non-meat diet, the more I longed for those fatty steaks and burgers.

Within a few days of forcing myself into those supplements which I considered tasteless now, I went into food blogging and ended up eating more lavish and fat content food. I gained more pounds than I ever expected. After every meal, I will laze about not doing anything and the body just bloated up like nobody’s business. Each time I tried to motivate myself to get out of the house to have some exercise, I would just stumble back onto my chair thinking of where to go next for more delicious food.

I thought this is life but I got the perception all wrongly planned. I got weaker and lazier as the time went by. Seeing this situation and how bad a shape I was in, my friend dragged me to the gym for a few days. Initially, it was fun but subsequently after the muscle cramp from each session, I gave up. I also hated the trouble of dressing up in nice sportswear and drive all the way to the gym under such hot humid weather.

Finally, I thought of another way to get those fat burned off in the comfort of my home. I bought myself one of those viewpoint treadmills that combined entertainment and at the same time make me exercise for a fitter body. Not only did I get to monitor my workout progress through the 7” built-in flat screen but at the same time I get to do what I love most – watching my favorite movies through iPod with Theater Quality Sound System. Now this is what I call life and I have never regretted getting such wonderful exercising equipment. If I can do it with ease, why can’t you?

LIVING A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have been trying to trim down that fatty waist line of mine for ages but each time I have the urging nagging from the inner self to do so, I ended up giving excuses to start exercising the next day. Those yummy food projects that I am having now have always stopped me from exercising but will it save me from getting into more health related issues later?

I always asked myself, “Why do I lack the enthusiasm?” Is it really that difficult for me to start doing some exercise? Although I am a workaholic, that should not be the main excuse. Isn’t this the same scenario in all of us here? There is always some sort of excuses for everything that is related to exercising. Is it the companionship? Is it the dread of getting sweaty and smelly all over the body? Is it the fear of tiring every muscle in the body and turning into a whimpering and exhausted weakling towards the end of the day and not able to continue with the never ending piles of workload?

Later, I had the typical idea of slimming down through one of the best diet pill companies that my friend had recommended. Initially, everything went on smoothly until the temptation of all the delicious food crept their way unconsciously into my dreams. Temptation overruled the determination to get a slim and fit body. Days after days of postponing the diet programs ended up to years of ignorance. In the end, all turned into laziness, laziness and more laziness. Workouts were replaced with endless eat-outs. There is still tomorrow as I would always tell myself but it will never be a reality as tomorrow will never come as it will always be replaced by today.
