I’m short on posts for this blog. I’ve been busy with so many things these days. Busy with my four other earning blogs. If you’re a mom just like me, you’d understand. Money first for the family before anything else. I have to put food on the table just like everybody else. It’s not like manna drops from the heavens all the time. Anyway, enough of the explanations. I’m here and I’m good. I’m losing weight. Thank God! The bulge around my tummy trimmed down a bit. Like I wrote in my previous posts, I’ve been avoiding rice like the plague and it’s working. Good thing that the sacrifice is paying off. Otherwise I won’t do it. Rice and bread are my favorites, especially bread. I can live on bread alone. Yes, contrary to popular belief that men can’t live on bread alone.
But my diet is not something anyone would dread eating. In fact, anybody who has gone on Skyflakes and water diet (I did) and countless other diets would appreciate the meals I’ve been eating these past weeks. One more thing, I’ve read somewhere that keeping a food journal would help you stay on your diet. So I’ve been doing that too. But I don’t write them down. I’ve thought of a better way. I photograph them and post them on Instagram (I’m gfas) and Twitter. Clever, right?!
Well, here are some of the photos…

My challenge yesterday was to join as many contests and giveaways as I possibly can. I think I was successful. I was able to join 5 contests of several mommy bloggers and I really do hope I win just one. I’m not wishing to win them all. I just need to win one so I can prove that luck is finally on my side.
The challenge today and the next 30 days is to exercise. I’ve kinda neglected my body for a long time. You prolly know what I mean. Every woman has been there one too many times. Not eating right. Not exercising enough. Not taking vitamins. Not drinking enough. Not sleeping enough. Not having sex enough. Oh, edit that last part.
I’m turning 40 and it shows. I remember back in my 30′s, people had mistaken me for a 20-something gal. Now at almost 40, people no longer make mistakes when guessing my age. They almost always hit the jackpot. It’s alarming how I age too fast.
Anyway, here’s hoping to feel and look better in 30 days. I will attempt to exercise daily. Even for just 10 minutes of continuous movement like going up and down the stairs, running in place or cleaning the house vigorously. Those 10-minute increments would matter in the long run. I surely hope so.
I’m not aiming to become Diana Meneses or Kim Chiu thin, I just wanna be able to fit into my clothes again. I don’t wanna wear baggy shirts anymore. I wanna wear pretty and girly tops. I wanna wear heels with that. Coz my everyday havaianas can only take me so far. Yeah like the market and my girl’s school.
I wanna be able to walk the mall without fearing I might bump into a former classmate looking like what I look now.
You prolly think I’m vain. That I’m superficial. That beauty is nothing. Well, I’m all that. And I don’t care. I’m doing this for myself.
So here’s what I did today…
Les Mills Body Combat
I got the DVD of Les Mills Body Combat free with my Nestle Fitnesse Cereals two years ago. It’s only now that I’m starting to use it again. Along with my Nike Cross Trainers…
It’s a worn-out pair.
And it’s purple.
