My C-lium Lose More, Live More journey starts now

Ever since I gave birth (that’s one-and-half years ago), I never came back to my pre-pregnancy weight. And to make it worse, it seems that my weight is going anything but up. I always make this an excuse, “I’m a mommy and I need to eat to keep up with the demands of my toddler”.

Jeff already pointed out this to me, “We need to start living healthier so that we can live longer to witness and enjoy the growing up years of our daughter.”

We tried starting a healthy lifestyle by running and eating more healthy food. Unfortunately, the accessibility of fastfood and being lazy got us back into junk-food-eating-couch-potatoes.

Last month, I was invited to be part of the Bloggers’ Edition of C-lium Lose More, Live More program. Selected bloggers are challenged on a one-month weight loss and special prizes will be given to those with the biggest drop in BMI, bad cholesterol levels, and blood sugar levels. I’m really not after the prizes but I joined because I think I really need this as motivation for me to start on a healthy lifestyle again.

Challenge Accepted!

A boring personal post

Sometimes, I envy those people who have jobs that have flexibility in terms of working hours and days. Specifically, people with healthcare jobs like doctors. They can go to their clinics and accept patients even twice or thrice a week for just a few hours a day and they’re still earning enough moolah. Just a random thought because earlier, I called in sick for work because I’m not feeling well¬† (again) because of cough and colds, and suspected conjunctivitis (sore eyes). When I called the Medicard coordinator if there is a scheduled opthalmologist affiliated with my health card,¬† she said the doctor is available only on Friday. Geez, I can’t wait till Friday. Good thing the redness subsided and looks like it’s just irritated with the fumes/paint inside the house. Gotta get back to work tomorrow…
