Why I keep on gaining weight.

I can't count how many times I've posted/said that I'm going to exercise or diet to be healthy and to lose weight. I do it but end up stopping after a week or two.

I think I am at my biggest now. Ok maybe not my biggest but now I feel the most unhealthiest that I've ever felt. I'm tempted to post some pics but I'm embarrassed so nevermind.
I'll just take a pic and save it in my laptop. Maybe if I succeed in losing weight, then I'll share the difference to you guys. Maybe. Just for you to have an idea. I'm at 140lbs (sometimes 138) now and I'm 5'4. I think my ideal weight should be 120lbs. I was 115lbs before I got pregnant with my first child. Even thent I felt like I could use some weightloss. Lets face it, I have two kids now. That's a few pounds that I cannot lose. I don't plan to wear a bikini anyway. I do want to look nice for my husband though, if you get my drift.

A few months ago (almost a year maybe), I've been having headaches and sumisikip dibdib ko. I had a checkup with a cardiologist. They found nothing wrong with my heart (I had them checked because I had rheumatic heart disease when I was a kid), but my blood pressure was high and I also had high cholesterol. My doctor just advised me to lose weight.

So you see, it's not just because I physically want to look great, I also want to be healthy. I have been hearing people die young nowadays because of heart attacks. It scares me.

My biggest hurdle is my addition to Coke (not the illegal drug haha! I meant Coca-Cola). I have been drinking Coke ever since. Back in the day, my mom was also addicted that she would buy cases of Coca-colas and we'd drink it everytime we eat. It was like our water. In fact, I rarely drank water before. I'm surprised it hasn't killed me yet. LOL. I learned to drink water and lessen my coke when I was pregnant. It wasn't allowed eh. The hard part of it was my addiction to Coke came with an addiction to eating with coke. I mean when I crave for Coke, i crave for something to go with it. That's when my diet problem begins. It's a cycle that I am having a hard time getting out of. Well, I''ve done "no-Coke" for a few months before. I hope i can do it again, or rather more permanent.

I've got no problems with sweets though since I rarely crave for cakes, pastries etc. I am not into Chichirya as well. So the softdrinks is the only problem.

How am I with exercising? Uhmm, I don't. Haha. I am not athletic. I suck at any sport. I even run funny. I also can't jump high. Push-ups? Can't carry myself haha! I SUCK.

I did  Zumba a few months back. I loved it! Maybe I have a chance with dancing since I was part of PE Dance back in Elementary. Haha! Thing is, I get bored. I danced zumba everyday for a month. Then one day, i don't want to anymore. It became a chore.

Today, I got inspired with one of my friends. She lost so much in just 3 months. She looked great!
Maybe I'll try this losing weight thing again, and stick to it this time.

I will try Focus T25 by Shaun T next week. In the meantime, I might try Zumba again and watch what I eat (and drink).

Wish me luck (again)! Haha!

Fresh All Day PH Care Wipes

Ever gone to an impromptu out-of-town trip? How about a night-out with the girls that turned into a sleepover?

I've had my shares of crazy adventures back in college. I'm a stay-at-home mommy as of now, so crazy cannot be entertained anymore. Haha!

When you're out, have you ever wished you had your feminine wash with you? Maybe also a nice bathroom with running water and a towel.

PH Care feminine wipes from Unilab is the answer to your problems!
I wish I knew about PH care wipes back then! Things would've been less embarrassing. Not that I stink or anything haha! But you cannot shrug the feeling that you might not be 100% fresh down there if you've been out for so long already.

PH care cool wind is my intimate wash. I love the cool feeling it gives down there. So naturally, I would go for the same brand of wipes. I made the right decision because the wipes come in a resealable pack that closes well (unlike the my son's cheap diaper wipes, it doesn't stick that much na). The PH care wipes stay moist and fresh. Another plus is that my wipes are thick and not easily ripped.

Another use for these wipes is when I'm out with the family to a mall, zoo or wherever (especially to those places that doesn't have a nice comfort room). I use it to wipe after weewee. So I feel fresh all the time. You never know when you need to be fresh so better be fresh always ;) if you know what I mean.. LOL.
