The way you make me feel

It’s a beautiful day.  Summer is here in the Philippines although it’s still not that hot.  I wonder what it will be like during the Holy Week.  I so love the Holy Week because it’s all about God and it’s during the summer.  I love it! 🙂

It’s also nice to share this drink with E and talk about a lot of things.

I’ve gained a lot of weight but I have realized something and I want to be fit and healthy as soon as possible. 🙂

Boost and Ever After

If you are for God, you can be assured of a “happy ending” which means “they live happily ever after”.  There is a great ever after.  As kids, we were taught to believe in happy endings.  We may leave this earth but we can be assured of a place in heaven—a paradise, a beautiful kingdom ruled by a kind God.

I looked at a classmate’s profile recently and saw that she was living the life I wanted.  If I will just look at what she has and compare my life to hers, then I will just be hurting myself.  I have to focus on God.  God is there, He knows me.  He knows me better than myself.  I have to worship Him all the time to always see His glory.  To see what is beautiful despite the chaos in this world.

I haven’t written for a while here because I’ve been exhausted—physically.  All I wanted when I sat on my bed after work was to just sleep.

They say that to boost metabolism I must have the right amount of sleep per day, which is 6 to 8 hours.  But for me, my complete hours of sleep is 8 hours.  But I can only have this on my off-duties.  So I always lack at least 3 to 1 hour of sleep.

I’ve been reading articles on how to boost my metabolism.  I think it’s disturbing that I have gained almost 10 lbs in just one month.

Allow me to post my observation.  I have observed this from the skinny people I know and also these observations are based on the articles that I have read so far.

I think, metabolism is boosted when the person will act quickly—like the person walks quickly, do her job in a hurry.  I think all your cells will be working full time—with beta-oxidation and full time metabolism.  By working in a hurry, it does not mean working haphazardly.  It rather means working energetically. J

To boost metabolism is to be hyper that means in emotions, too.  You can either be always aggressive and angry, or cheerful and happy.  If I’m going to be hyper, I’ll be choosing to be cheerful and happy.

To boost metabolism, you should be properly hydrated.  How can you be cheerful if you are thirsty.  How can you do everything in a hurry if your throat is dry.

To boost metabolism, you should know how to breathe.  Deep breathing.  Do you know the proper breathing to maximize the consumption of oxygen in the body?  That is the kind of breathing that we need.  It relaxes us.  It makes us think clearly which makes us work faster, and have the right attitude.

Boosting metabolism also involves the mind.  We have to engage our minds in what we love to do.  We have to interact and talk with people.  We have to have conversation with our friends or with other people.  Holding a conversation takes intelligence because we need to think of words.  We could also write.  But then talking is also better for the mouth, lungs and jaw J  Writing is good for the hands.  A balance of the two is better. 😉

From this day on, I will try to follow my own observation (should I say advise…hehe ).  Hopefully I will be able to boost my metabolism.


It was night time and I just  had taken a bath, ready to do some work then sleep after.  My roommates had not yet arrived.  I decided to send a message to one of my roommate to buy me Mr. Chips (from Jack “n Jill) and a can of coke.  She did buy me.  I ate happily sharing with them some of the chips.  Then suddenly, it happened.  My stomach moved suddenly that I urgently went inside the bathroom to let the air or food or waste all out.  The air was stuck inside my stomach and the pain was 9/10 for me.  Thank God I never passed out.

In the end, I have vomitted the chips and the coke I had just eaten.

It was a painful way to gain back my motivation to think about my health.

My apologies if you are eating right now and you happen to read my blog.

Portion control effort is a lifestyle and not just a goal.  Hopefully this will lead to a healthier lifestyle.

Before I end this post, I want to share with you this video of my now major crush, Zachary Levi of Chuck with Katharine McPhee.  This is Terrified.  If love is terrifying, I would still fall in love a thousand times (hopefully to my future husband and also to God).

Enjoy the weekends!!! 🙂
