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…

So ok, the no-rice challenge was an epic fail. I must have eaten noodles and rice the size of Singapore in those 4 or 5 days in yummy Singapore.
Alright, the time has come for another 30-day challenge and you guess it right, it would be the no-rice challenge. You can begin along with me if you’re up to it. It’s fairly easy. Just eat anything and everything but rice. Of course, you don’t need to start a blog if you don’t have any just to chronicle your progress. You can actually write to me and let me know how you’re doing and I’d gladly write about your progress here, anonymously or not.
If you are new here, this blog is dedicated to challenging myself daily. I chose 30 days because that’s how long it takes for anything to become a habit. Yep, whether good or bad. The success of it relies on those 30 days. It’s a challenge, right? To break it down more, you have to commit to something and do it for 30 days or more…It could be anything. No shopping for clothes for 30 days. No lunch or dinner out. No to anything and yes to changes and improvement. The goal is to improve for the better.
And do remember…if you fail at first, you can always do it again.
So this is it!
My no-rice challenge officially starts now. Goodbye RICE! I’ll miss you.
