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.

Happy Mee

It’s that time when I wanted to wake up early and when I looked at my phone to see the time it was already 5:50am!!!  And so I immediately took a bath and went to the bus terminal.  There was no way I would be able to arrive at work on time.  I just slept at the bus.

I wanted this phone which is quite affordable with Plan 299.  It’s an android/google phone.  But then the battery life is poor.  Moreover, I don’t want another number.  If it’s possible I’d just have one number.  3 numbers are too much to handle for me.

That was why I got frustrated and exhausted that I rebelled against myself and I ATE A LOT.  But I have to forgive myself.  I think I may have attained a healthy BMI but I’m not really sure.  I’d only be sure if I am 2 pounds lighter than my upper limit for a healthy BMI.

I love this photo of me taken by my sister…I was excited to eat this instant noodle that she cooked for me.  This bowl contained 2 packs of instant noodles and 2 eggs.  I thought I could finish the whole thing, but then I realized that my metabolism was that slow…or maybe my metabolism is slow and I eat way too much.  Hehe 🙂

Molded

Friday is Day 5, or should I say Day 4 of my path to 110 lbs 🙂  I have neglected to drink enough water because my stomach finally gave up and I had a painful incident at the restroom.  Too much iced tea is bad for the stomach.

This lunch, I went to the familiar fastfood chain and it was packed.  I wanted to eat lunch there to save time and I was already hungry, too.  I saw a guy sitting alone at that moment, I knew that he was with someone because of the other plate in front of him.  But the place was packed and I just wanted to eat and so I still decided to approach him and asked if I could sit with them.  The girl that he was with was a bit on the voluptuous side and I had to move my table just so we could eat comfortably.  A thought occured to me, is seat-sharing also done in other countries or is this just a culture in a fastfood or food places, or is it just me? I don’t mind sharing my seat just as long as they won’t do anything bad to me or to my food. 🙂

This photo was taken by Mumbaki.

About the photo:  A happy child in a not-so-ideal environment.  This kid is a survivor.  I hope he will be able to survive life with still a smile on his face. 🙂

Faith

Lord, create a new heart in me.  Live in my heart forever.

I have been craving His word like this hole in me that none can fill.  Only Him can fill this hole.  Have you listened to the song of Plumb–God-shaped Hole?  I so can relate to its lyrics.  It goes something like, “There’s a God-shaped hole in all of us and the restless soul is searching…”

I always thought that nothing that I want/dream is given to me and that controlling my weight is the only thing I can do.  But I know now that with God, anything is possible.  I just have to have FAITH.

Faith and patience are lessons that I have yet to master.  But in time, I hope to learn these lessons.  I thank God because He is patient with me.  He is waiting for me–to learn what I must learn so that He could finally give me the blessings He plans to shower me.
