1 Week Down

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

Missing him….
He will be away  for 1.5 months as he has to go to Majuro for work. This is the longest that he will be away from us. Last time he went on temporary duty was for three weeks only and it was difficult not just for me but for the kids as well as we missed him terribly.

So now I don’t know how we can endure 6 weeks. What’s making it worst is that Internet connection in Majuro is so bad that we can’t do video calls. We just send emails and we chat over at Skype but it is still not the same without hearing his voice and seeing him.

But at least we survived one week already. 5 more weeks to go. I can’t wait for June 22 to come, so he can come home to us.

Health Talk

Wednesday, May 8, 2013

I so badly need to lose weight. I just had my annual checkup and my doctor said that I am in the borderline already of having high blood pressure. My doctor recommended a diet plan for me which I have to observe so I don’t have to take maintenance meds, which will I will be taking for my entire lifetime if I start on it, to maintain an acceptable blood pressure.

My doctor also recommends doing exercise that is why I started doing brisk walking in the morning and in the afternoon before I go home. It is just a simple exercise and I am using an iPhone app called Walking Star to calculate my steps, my speed and the calories that I burned in doing it. There is actually a lot of iPhone app that I can use and one of the recommendations of my friend is the C25K running program. I wanted to try this as I have friends already who have been under this program and they really loose a weight. But first I have to buy a good running shoes and smart feet insoles before I can start with the program.

I need to lose at least 10 pounds and I don’t think Calorie Counting Diet program is not enough. Hopefully, I will be able to start with this fitness regimen and be able to sustain it

Our New Twitter

Viber is our new twitter. My online friends and I used to hang out in Twitter where we chat and talk but we find Twitter to be overcrowded already that we have to find a new venue where we can openly talk about anything under the sun. And so our solution, we created a group chat in Viber.

I love this new group chat as we don’t have to worry if other people will see our conversation as we have limited the group to our set of friends only. So we can talk about anything and everything, from rants, to good news and bad news and even showbiz news.

Just like yesterday, our topic was the family feud of the Baretto clan and our views on whether Reese should go to a Malibu alcohol treatment center.

Viber has been a part of my day to day routine now because it is here where I get to talk to the closest persons in my life.

Where To Wear Your Bodycon Dress This Summer

Saturday, May 4, 2013

There are some items of clothes that take a bit of bravery to wear: crop tops, bikinis, short shorts and bodycon dresses. If you’re like me, you’ll scoff yourself silly throughout the festive season and then freak out come spring as you’ve only got a few months to tone your tum before the summer. Then I remember that I don’t have to be super skinny to still pull of an outfit, and let’s face it, I’ll end up eating a few ice creams during the warmer months anyway! So this year I will be facing my fears and wearing these items of clothes; I don’t want to miss out on a trend just because of body confidence. So if you’re in a similar position to me, here are my tips about where to wear your bodycon dress this summer...

The nightclub
If you still feel a little bit shy, perhaps a nightclub is an ideal place to start on your body confidence mission. The room will be darker, and there will be so many bodies in the place that you won’t be in the limelight quite so much! If your friends are all wearing similar outfits you’ll fit right in anyway. And you never know, you might even want to post your photos to Facebook or Instagram when you realise how great you all look.

The office

There are some longer length bodycon dresses that are suitable for the office. You might want to look for one in a “midi” length to make sure you aren’t baring too much skin - you don’t want to be an office distraction after all. A smart blazer will give you some extra coverage, and you can complete your outfit with great heels and some jewellery. There’s a good chance that at least one of your work colleagues will ask you where you got your dress so prepare to answer lots of questions!

The races
As long as you don’t have the most expensive tickets that require you to wear fascinators and the like, a bodycon dress is a good choice for the races. You might choose to wear some killer stilettos and a small hairpiece, but your dress will certainly be the “wow” part of your outfit. If it is going to be a warm day, remember that wearing black might make you a bit too warm, so choose a summery colour and run with it.

The restaurant
Pair your bodycon dress with a shrug or thin cardigan for the ideal dinner date outfit. It really is possible to make this dress work from day time into the evening simply by swapping your accessories - if you want to give the appearance of two different outfits, consider neck scarves and bright belts as well as thinking about your choice of shoes.
