Stay In Shape

Weight issue is probably a girl’s biggest nightmare, besides finding something to wear. A flabby tummy being part of it that we try so hard to tuck in. I believe in loving myself in my own skin but I also believe in trimming to a size that I am comfortable in.

I wouldn’t say I have totally flat tummy but just like most women, I try to keep it as flat as possible. I am generally a poor feeder with a sweet tooth but I do try to keep the carbs at bay if need be. Whenever I feel like I have gained extra kilos, I cut or go slow on carbs.

The one time I really struggled with weight was after my second baby and I had to go on a strict low carb diet. That involved a normal heavy breakfast, avoiding processed foods and sticking to organics. My lunch was a normal portion with minimal carbs again. My dinner was strictly salad but since I am not a fan of veggies, I would do a tomatoes-cucumber-capsicums-mangoes salad interchangeably with grated carrots-desiccated coconut-raisins salad. I avoided any snacking at night and did away with sugar in my tea hence drinking chocolate became my preferred hot beverage. Stuff I did away with included pizzas, fries and sodas but the rest I could have in moderation. Within a month the weight started melting off me.

I don’t like the green smoothies people make nowadays, I can’t stomach blended raw spinach, but then again, that’s me. I don’t think gym helps in losing weight, it comes in handy in toning and firming up the body and keeping you fit. I am lazy when it comes to running so you will catch me jogging only when I want to relieve my mind and to catch some fresh air.

To me, losing weight is a matter of discipline on keeping the carbs low. As for the flabby tummy, sit ups, crunches, planks, leg ups etc help a lot. If you stick to a schedule of doing like 10 each every day, you should be able to see some change. Never mind that I also struggle with the discipline and end up with a muffin top which is so irritating when you want to wear fitting clothes.

All in all, dress up according to your body type, always.

Flaunt your good parts and try to camouflage what you are not comfortable with.

Humble and kind

Inspirational words don’t always come from reading the bible or in church. They could be a lyrics to a song, words from a wise person, actions from a small child, own life experiences or the actions of a stranger. If you are keen and attentive, you could learn a thing or two. So i was driving to work today and listening to McGraw – Humble and Kind and i just loved the words, quite the reminder we need every so often. It goes something like this, in parts:

Go to church because mama says so, visit grandpa every chance that you get, it won’t be wasted time, always stay humble and kind. Hold the door, say please, say thank you. Don’t steal, don’t cheat, don’t lie. I know you’ve got mountains to climb but always stay humble and kind. When the dreams you are dreaming come true, when the work you put in is realized,  let yourself feel the pride but always stay humble and kind. Don’t hold a grudge or  chip because bitterness keeps you from flying. Know the difference between sleeping with someone and sleeping with someone you love. ‘I love you’ ain’t a pick up line. Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you , and when you get to where you are going, don’t forget to turn around and help the the next one in line.

Isn’t this just sweet to listen to?

On my blog, got some high waist black jeggings, slim fit and full length that have slits on the knees. They can be worn casually with a top and flats or dressed up in heels and blazers; whichever way you prefer.
